http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2009/11/14/Expert-Pediatrician-Exposes-Vaccine-yths.aspx                          I do realize this is not a recent interview however I found it very interesting. I wanted to share the link. I should warn you It is a long interview but worth watching the whole thing. It helped to validate the classes I have taken as well as books and articles I have read.

 

 

Since deciding against vaccinating my one and only blessing DD (I finally conceived and gave birth at 39/40 yrs old.) I have struggled on a daily basis with the what ifs. So I am in a state of perpetual research. The morning after her birth I was verbally attacked by a hospital pediatrician for refusing to give my new born baby a hepatitis b vaccination, at which time I informed her that my new born would not be engaging in any unprotected sex, IV drug use or getting any tattoos in the near future there for she was not in any immediate danger . I also let her know that when I found out I was prego I gave up smoking so in no way was i going to be injecting formaldehyde or gluteraldihyde ( used as a cold sterilent in the Dental field) in my baby. As you can imagine she didn't take well to my answers and proceeded to tell me that her children were fully vaxed and fine at which time I replied then you are LUCKY the conversation went on much too long and she was completely annoyed when she stomped out of the room.  

 

 

I also watched the change take place in my cousins child. One week I watched him and he was making eye contact and cooing, normal milestones for his age. The next week he had vaccines the following week I watched him again and he was completely unresponsive not cooing no eye contact it was like someone turned out the lights. There is no question in my mind about what happened to him. Several months later he was diagnosed with high end of the spectrum Autism. Nothing but a tragedy caused by the greed and corruption of our country. I say it that way because I don't just blame the Pharmaceutical companies I blame all that are in bed with them. Why are vaccine producers proteced by the federal government? Why is it OK for the higher ups at the CDC to own stock in such companies? (they sign a conflict of interest waiver) I guess that makes it all better. I wonder if the people running our country sign the same waiver? Why aren't more independent studies being conducted?( oh ya, there is no money in it.)  Most of all, why aren't Doctors listening and standing up for children? 

 

 

I suppose the moral to my ranting is I am great full for the people who can talk openly and share information and still take a stand for what is right for our familys. Thank you to all who post on Mothering!!!!!!!!!!!! (well maybe not all) LOL.  I am very interested in feed back of any kind in regards to this topic.

I hit the wrong reply by accident..i should have hit 'yes'...i DO know someone- my son.    I saw him deteriorate with every vax he got, and this was in '88, when the schedule was DPT, and oral polio...the denial that followed the vaxing was incredulous, and to this day, my 25yrs old still suffers from ill health, allergies,  and a skin condition i am positive the vaxes made worse, due to the over production of  IgE after the DPT.

My dear friend's child became autistic before everyone's eyes after suffering brain injury from a vaccine. He was a fine toddler, a determined red-head who hit milestones before most children - as if he thought he should be able to do everything his older brother did. The day he got his shots, he screamed a primitive blood-curling scream, holding his head between his hands and banging his head on the floor and walls. His mother called the ped, and the thing she was told was, "Well, it's not from the shots." That was it. Nothing else. Hang up. Child quickly became a shell. No more words, no eye contact. Lost skills.

 

Luckily for him, he has such devoted and determined parents who aggressively sought out answers and treatments for him. They don't really know what exactly happened. One doc said that it was a reaction to the mercury and that when his body finished the long process of eliminating the mercury, he would be fine. That doc's prognosis is panning out. Six years later, he is almost recovered. The therapies have saved him too, because they worked his brain externally until it was able to do the work internally, so that he wouldn't be so far delayed when he did recover. His therapy became his mother's full-time job, and his parents suffered greatly financially as guess how much is covered by insurance. NOTHING. Guess how much that federal vaccine injury program joke paid. NOTHING. But, there is a lot to be grateful for. So many others are much worse off because of vaccine injury.

I don't know. I would vote 'maybe', if it was an option.

I voted yes. I know one kid in particular who has autism. His mom casually told me one day that at one of his appointments as a baby, his doc gave him 2 doses of a certain shot because he was a big baby! If that is true, how sad is that?

My 15mo DD did the blood curddling screaming after her shots - I stopped vaxxing her after the 4mo round and we're still working on the food intolerances that occured immediately following vaccination.  Intolerance to oats and not gluten is a super specific and unusual thing to react to, but when DD developed a full body rash her first time eating oatmeal shortly following her last vax (I pushed the 4mo vaxes to 5mos bc she'd had a cold at that time) I knew something was wrong (they were gluten free oats too).  I've been forewarned by our ND that further vaccination will only result in more severe reactions which I hate to think what that would be like and so we no longer vaccinate.  I'm glad developmentally she has not been affected.  I can't say the same for friends kids.

Another enlighten source about vaccines can be found at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pdLMeULoujM - it is also older info (2004) but it still applies today and I found it interesting that some vaccines that were stated to be on the horizon in 2004 and being pushed today.

Wow great job standing up to those bullies! I know a few people that have had reactions. its unbelievable its considered rare!.My grandmother fell voilently ill after the flu shot, my mother's neighbors 6 month old died after the flu shot, i also became very sick after the flu shot and i have never been that sick in my life, i could not get out of bed, my sister had vaccine reactions as a child doctors stopped vaccinating her, and as a toddler during the vaccine boom of the 90s i was diagnosed with ASD i stopped talking and would not look at anyone. my mother did not believe it she said i was a normal kid before, it took years to overcome i believe i was mercury poisoned. I have since then completely recovered.

i went through intense behavioral rehabilitation and put on special diets, i dont have any memory of it i only know what my mother tells me. i think i was just incredibally lucky enough to heal myself through god, and my parents and teachers determination. I have heard that ASD can be outgrown but haven't looked into it.

It's so sad to me that vaccine reactions are seen as rare when really, doctors just don't know what to look for in an adverse reaction(imo) :( Plus, so many reactions go unreported even by parents because they don't know what's happening.

 

I'm not sure if it counts as a reaction, but when my cousin was a baby he got vaccines without anyone knowing he had an egg allergy and he was rushed to the emergency room in serious condition shortly after receiving the vaccines. In my opinion, I think allergy testing should be mandatory before vaccines (I'm against vaccines anyways, but still) because you don't what child is allergic to or will react to what. My son has never been vaccinated, and just this past Wednesday we found out he has a severe dairy allergy. I don't know if he would have ever reacted to the fetal bovine serum in vaccines, so I'm incredibly thankful we didn't vaccinate him.
