To Vaccinate or Not to Vaccinate....That is the Question

As a parent myself, this was one of the most difficult desicions I had to make as a parent. There is so much talk these days about the safety of vaccines. This is a personal decision that only a parent can make. Some parents believe that it is necessary to fully vaccinate, others selectively vaccinate and others have chosen to not vaccinate at all.

The recommended amount of vaccines has gone from being around 25 in the 70's when I was growing up to now recommending around 70 vaccines by the time a child is in college. It is still unknown what affects this increase in toxins will have on our children. It is already being theorized that vaccines add toxins to children's sensitive systems. These toxins in addition to the other toxins and chemicals in our environment (pollutents, preservatives, cleaning products, wheat glueten soda, processes foods, meats with hormones, ect) have caused disorders like ADD, ADHD, Autism, and Cancers.

Doctors or Oriental Medicine and Homeopaths can treat children if they get sick and help prevent them from contracting diseases. This reduces the need to vaccinate. For parents who wish to vaccinate, they can give remedies to lessen the toxic effect of the vaccines on the body.

There are some helpful resources available to help a parent make decisions about vaccination.

One suggestion for parents who choose to vaccinate is to follow the alternate vaccination schudule. This is based on the Chinese system. They wait to do their vaccines and spread them out further over time.

Although it is important to take into account some important factors- like if the child is going to be in daycare after birth, if the baby is breastfeed, if the baby has a healthy immune system, ect.
Dr. Sherry Tenpenny has a DVD on Vaccines. She goes through each one and discusses her view about whether that vaccine is a safe choice. It is filled with statistics and data. Dr. Tenpenny has the view that vaccines are not safe and explains her opintion of each childhood vaccine. She is also on Facebook with reugular updates.

Dr. Mercola is also anti-vaccine. He has a website and is also on facebook.

Dr. Sears has a book that describes each vaccine. He is not as biased with his view. He just states the facts and wants parents to make their own decisions.

And then there is the American Pediatric Association and there view is that children need to fully vaccinate.

It is difficult to find a doctor who is willing to see your children if they are not fully vaccinated. Doctor's of Oriental Medicine can treat illness when they arise, without the need of pills and antibiotics. If a parent still wants a physician, I have found a couple in the area who are ok with either not vaccinating or selectively vaccinating.
