Recently the facility that our family doctor works for let go of their privileges at our local hospital. What that meant was, if my children needed to have their doctor see them at the hospital – it couldn’t happen. While we don’t PLAN to be at the doctor often – sometimes, accidents and events happen that we DON’T plan and the hospital is a necessity.
And for those times. We wanted to be ready.
So, recently – we switched to a different family doctor.
One we knew that would respect our “less than conventional” way of doing things.
With that, we needed to do “well child visits” to get acquainted with the new office and their practices. (Ironically, a few days later my son ended up sick – one BIG reason I despise well visit checks!)
At this visit – the children were measured, and weighed and the “medical protocol” was fulfilled with the Obama-care slew of questions that allows for 85% typing and about 15% really listening to the patient.
And then the records were reviewed… and the vaccination reports were reviewed. Several of the kids were due for shots.
We declined them all. 15 month shots, we were behind on, the 4-5 year shots before school? No thanks. Boosters for the DTaP? or tetanus? Nope.
To preface this, I will say – I was a big believer in vaccinations. Our kids always got the most necessary shots, for the most part – on time.
I didn’t question the system.
I heard of people like Jenny McCarthy, who is a huge advocate for autism awareness, and her speculation that vaccinations might have something to do with the rise in autism in this country. (I thought she was a kook – you know, a quack!)
I ignored it…
My kids didn’t have autism. (Except a few of them are on the spectrum, and do have social and behavioral disorders)
We were healthy…
No actually. We were sick most of the time. Depite having the flu shot every year – we had gotten the flu the past 4 years.
What went wrong?
Vaccinations were important. I mean come on, the government REQUIRED them to enter school for “our safety”… RIGHT?
Then, I realized I was sick last year…
Then I realized the system is broken… and at best VERY crooked.
The more I learned about the system, and studies, and statistics…
The more I questioned, the more I learned…
Could vaccines be more harmful than helpful… and why?
The answer is yes, and here is why…
Vaccines are meant to create antibodies in our systems – if they create an antibody response, they are considered “effective”. Unfortunately, as I’ve learned – antibodies don’t always do what they’re supposed to (hence, auto immune responses), and having antibodies from a vaccine doesn’t equal an immunity to a virus or disease, like the medical field promotes.
If that were the case, if vaccines created immunity – we would never need a booster shot. Right?
That is called – a business.
These vaccines are preserved in solutions which contain many toxins. They are given to all people – regardless of age, preexisting health conditions or inability to rid their body of toxins. The range of effects that the preservatives alone can have on a person – are too numerous to count.
You read your food labels – RIGHT? At least I hope you do. Can you read a shot label before it’s injected into your child? You’d be sickened at what is in them.
I considered my own family, and extended family. I had a niece who began having blood in her stool a week after her MMR shot. The doctors swore it couldn’t have been from the shot – but there is nothing else it could have been. Her parents were told it was possibly leukemia, but thankfully later she was diagnosed with ITP instead, which was still serious, but a better diagnosis. Still the stress was insurmountable for her parents, and the questions ensued for me.
Our 7th child got a second H1N1 shot and had a serious reaction within 15 minutes.
Ever want to feel helpless? Agree to put a shot into your child, and then realize you can’t get it out – and they’re fading in front of your eyes. A 12 hour fever of 104+ that wouldn’t budge with any OTC meds was our nightmare. Truly horrific, and never forgotten.
Then there is our 3rd child who always seemed more lazy than the others. She was late to stand, late to walk (19 months) and late to talk. Socially she was different too, she stopped nursing what seemed like over night – at 9 months… she didn’t understand discipline cues nor simple directions that one might consider common sense. She didn’t tell me she loved me until age 5, with lots of prompting. When she was in our local Parents As Teachers program, she met most of her milestones, but Aspergers was discussed. High functioning autism.
I didn’t want to label my child. I knew she was smart.
But I also knew, she was different – and we were going to have to work on some coping mechanisms for her future.
Then my next son had similar issues – but different. Socially he was radically observant, but behavioral he was often short lipped without thinking and out of control with his level of noise and sound making – constantly. Often unable to control his outbursts.
I noticed early on they comforted one another. They both enjoyed “spinning” in a movable chair, or just freely in a circle and my husband and I joked…”Spin therapy is soothing to them.” Neither liked change in plans, and freaked out something was out-of-order in a daily schedule. Later, when I read on Aspergers, these are all classic signs.
As they’ve aged, and we’ve watched them develop, the differences have been more clear. While BOTH are very bright – they both clearly have autism spectrum disorders. Removing gluten and dairy has helped them dramatically. From rashes, to the “head shaking” feeling they said they felt – diet has made a difference, but there are more toxins built up in their systems that we are working on getting OUT through various methods – and we are praying for more improvements for them as well.
As questions swirl about why there is such a rise in autism, and auto immune disease, learning disabilities and cancer in this country… I can’t help but realize that SO many vaccinations given recklessly have played a huge role in this medical nightmare.
Demanding babies are given multiple shots before they leave the hospital, and the amount their given before age 2? More than the healthiest person could handle.
How about the yearly “flu shot scare” that the media and drug companies promote? It should be illegal.
True immunity comes from your body actually fighting off something itself. You’re much better off building your immune system, instead of letting the toxins in a vaccine break your system down.
There is a separate court system just for vaccinations. Yes. This is true. The drug manufacturers also have immunity from lawsuits caused from harm or even DEATH from vaccinations. Do your research.
If you want to truly think through vaccinations – check out this video. It’s one of the many that helped educate us about our decision to STOP giving our children shots and work on their immune systems instead. This site offers books to read on the matter also.

“But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am too young.’
You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you.
Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord.”
