I posted in the other forum looking for info regarding tetanus vaccines for my family. We live on a farm with horses and cows and manure everywhere. (The dog even loves to eat dried cow pies.) We use manure on the gardens as fertilizer. And as a working farm, there are scraps of metal/nails/glass around. The kids are generally barefoot and running everywhere. So I feel like it would be prudent to do this one vaccine.
But all the tetanus vaccines have such horrifying ingredients! If you find one with no mercury, it's full of aluminum. Finally after much research I figured dh and I (in our 50s and 60s) are more at risk than the kids, so I thought I would just get vaccines for us. But when I actually try to go to the health department and DO it, I just can't bring myself to knowingly inject that stuff into our bodies. Much less into the kids!
I read tons of threads like "my son fell into a rosebush and now I'm worried sick" and "my child was bitten by a dog and now I'm worried sick." And there ARE awful stories of people having tetanus. I don't want to go through life worrying about every cut and scrape. (And most of the time I don't even see their wounds until much later.) I just wanna get a shot and go on with it. uh... but not the aluminum, etc...
aaackkk, I'm so conflicted!!!
So now I'm wondering, maybe there's either 1) a relatively innocuous tetanus vaccine that someone here knows about that I've not found in days of researching? or since that's not likely 2) do you suppose there might be some way of naturally curing tetanus, should we be one of the unlucky few to get it? or finally 3) is there a way to detox the bad components afterward to make getting the vaccine not so horrible?
And now I see that I'm just grasping at straws here, lol.
Any insight would be gratefully appreciated!
