Do you eat organic/natural foods and vaccinate your children? - Page 2

post #21 of 157
Kelly, I do see your point and am also horrified at the vax in food thing-hadn't heard anything about that. I mostly or selectively vax b/c of the same reasons that goodeats discussed, but certainly am not thrilled with the things in vaccines. I am sure most informed vaccinating parents feel that way. I don't take the 'toxins' in vaccines lightly. I just think that this is best for my family as is eating naturally/organically.

Apparently there are some scientists that predict that all nutrition, in the future, will be able to be obtained simply in pill form. Somehow I highly doubt this will be appropriate nutrition, but I am sure the gov't will!

I too, didn't like the things in them when dd was a baby but did it anyway. She did receive vax's until she was 6m months old. Then things went bad and she had a pretty nasty reaction to the round at 6 months. I thank God that it doesn't seem to be a severe life altering reaction, but she does now have a wheat allergy that is suspected to be related to that event. In a 3 year old's mind, that is severe :LOL I myself have an auto-immune disease that is directly related to the Hep B vax I got in high school, and I am finding out that a number of other classmates of mine have the exact same thing as well.

I hope you don't think that I think anyone who is informed takes these things lightly. I cried each time dd got her shots because I didn't want her to get them, but I was also afraid for her not too. Now, due to the above mentioned events, we have made the decisions that we have.

We eat mostly natural and organic foods, almost no processed foods, and I'm working on cutting out sugar, or at least severely limiting it. We have vaccinated both of our children, although we have delayed some of the vaccinations (ie. not having all 4 done at a particular well-check but coming back later for the ones we skipped.
Of course as a second-guessing Mom, I wonder about these decisions all the time but we felt this was best for us.

We eat a good amount of organic and minimize processed things. Our children are selectively vaxed.

My children eat whole foods (very little processed) and organic when possible and they are and will be completely vax'd...

We eat whole foods, organic as much as possible and no vax for the kids.

my mom's a pediatrician, so she vaxed my sister and I completely, but we also ate about 80% organic. same with all the partners in her office.

Vegan, whole foods, organic, selectively-vaxed.

ETA: While I am confident in our dietary decisions, I remain conflicted on the vax issue.

Me too. We are vegetarians, mostly organic (organic on all the vegetables that conventionally-grown versions have high pesticide residues) and whole foods. It's easy to feel good about what we eat, harder to feel good about vaccinations, and even about medicine in general. I wish we didn't live in such a scary world.

Is there a way for me to just add a poll to this thread? I tried when I originally posted it, but it didn't work. Am I dumb? Uh........nevermind, don't answer that last one!

We try to only eat organic and whole foods, but since the nearest place to shop is over an hour away, we sometimes have to resort to conventional. We are working toward eliminating dairy because we feel it just isn't healthy for our family, but we do still eat some organic, free range meats. DD had some vaccinations until we saw the light and she has not received one since. DS has not had any vaccinations and probably will not ever have them.

post #38 of 157
We eat organic whenever I can get it ... we live in a small town so it's hard to do. I do like to travel to a Whole Foods once a month or so, but it's two hours away.

Alex was fully vaxed ... he's now on the Autistic spectrum. Was it connected? I'll never know. My next child will be selectively vaxed with delays.

Organic foods only and NO Vaccines at all.

At least two ingredients in vaccines are incredibly dangerous. They are mercury and formaldehyde, both used as preservaties. Even the Australian Cancer Council says there is NO safe level of formaldehyide.
