My Wake-Up Call
As a child growing up, my parents had complete trust in the medical profession as they undoubtedly followed the advice of their doctors. As we became parents, my husband and I followed suit. We went straight to the doctor’s office when our children were sick and naturally followed their advice to take medications and to vaccinate. As infants, our children constantly developed secondary infections from viruses and were treated with antibiotics, cough syrups, allergy medications and injections; doctor’s orders! As a result, I believe, this initiated a downward spiral of a weakened immune system, allergies, depression, etc. There are times that I look back and regret decisions that I have made regarding my children’s health. I have added vaccinations and medications to the top of my “If I could do all over again, I would do it differently” list.
Twenty plus years ago, a friend introduced me to natural health solutions and I experienced a profound health turnaround. I conducted extensive research and educated myself, family and friends of the benefits of living a natural, healthy lifestyle. I realized that there are other choices besides resorting immediately to medicine and surgery. After we made changes in our lifestyles, I began to notice that our children no longer needed to visit the doctor constantly; absolutely no more medicines and injections! That was my wakeup call that fueled my passion to continue learning and share with the world.
Our Immune System – The Key to Health
The key to ward off illness and disease is to achieve and maintain a healthy immune system, as I have explained in How to Safely Prevent Viruses, Colds and Flu’s. Our body is designed by our Creator to heal itself, if given the proper nutrients and put in the right environment.
I believe vaccines not only lower our immune system, but also poison us with the additives and toxins included in them. Please see the support and educational resources that I have listed below.
The Big Question: To Vaccinate or Not?
Endless research led me to explore the controversial subject of vaccinations. The thought NOT to vaccinate had NEVER entered my mind before! After all, wasn’t my doctor the “expert” here? To my dismay, I realized that I blindly believed whatever my doctor told me. When I read the list of ingredients and the horrific side effects of vaccinations, I was sickened and appalled at what I allowed to be injected into their tiny bodies! I came to the conclusion that their weakened immune system, allergies and depression were very possibly caused, triggered or exacerbated by the vaccines. As per Dr. Mercola, “Kids Given Vaccines Have 22 Times the Rate of Ear Infections, 32 times the rate of sinusitis, 4x allergies, 2x asthma, 4x hayfever, 3x ADHD and 19 times higher odds of Autism based on this 7,850 person survey. Yet 98% of parents give it to their children -…”
Are We Over-Vaccinating Our Children?
It’s entirely alarming that the vaccine schedule has increased drastically over the years. NVIC writes, “Are we over-vaccinating our children? An epidemic of chronic disease and disability is plaguing America. Our children are the most highly vaccinated children in the world and they are among the most chronically ill and disabled. Before and after birth to age six, children born today in the U.S. are given 50 doses of 14 vaccines.”
If someone hadn’t shared their thoughts regarding natural health solutions that day over 20 years ago, I might still be following that same deadly path. After extensive research on both sides, we made our decision. No vaccines for this family!
My purpose is to impart to you that you have a responsibility to yourself and your family to educate before you make a decision. I am here to tell you that YOU have choices. Please do your due diligence, your family’s health and future depends on it!
