Best Book for Non-Vaxers

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I'm not really looking for an argument book, but more of a "What to do if your kid gets a VPD" kind of book for reference. Thanks.

Aviva Jill Romm's Vaccination book is great. The first part talks about the diseases and vaccines themselves, and the last part of the book talks about naturally boosting the immune system and things you can do if someone does get a VAD.

best books

My two favorite books are Don't Vaccinate before you Educate and The Vaccine Book.
I like the DVD , Vaccinations by Dr. Jay Gordon

I second that book, although it could use a new edition with updates to catch up on some of the new vaccinations since the first printing.

Don't vaccinate book

It was updated this past year. It now has the Cal/ Oregon study in it. I think it is a good book to loan out also to people who are interested.

Can you explain what a VAD is? I'm new to this forum and the overall mothering community. I have 2 girls that i have opted from vaxing, and am getting my self more knowledgeable in the area. i appreciate your explanation, and this book sounds like a must read for me.

Vaccine Available Disease, as opposed to Vaccine Preventable Disease...the common term used in mainstream medicine, science.

Even though it is over twenty years old, the book by Dr. Robert Mendelsohn,How to raise a healthy child in spite of your doctor... has a chapter on how to recognize a VPD disease and how to treat it. Remember, he was a pediatrician since 1946 through the polio era, and he did diagnose plenty of measles, mumps, rubella, pertussis, diphtheria, and polio, so the symptomology he describes is from first hand experience and the text book.

The problem may be that the vaccinations that were developed and put on the list after 1988 as Hepatitis B, and others would not be in his book.

Good luck.

I just got a signed copy of Sherri Tenpenny's Saying No To Vaccines. It comes with a DVD as well. I haven't been able to read it yet, but flipping through, I have found numerous pages that explain what to do for specific diseases. It is brand spanking new and has everything included in it from birth through adults, including the HPV vaccine.

After speaking with Sherri yesterday and today, she made me remember that I need to find out what the status is of Hilary's next book......and that I need another book shelf.

I saw on her beyond conformity blog that the book is listed..."From One Prick to Another" (2008).

Yay!!!

I've been away from this forum for so long, I am soooo happy to read Hilary's Second book! I only made it 1/2 through _Just A Little Prick_, but I have referred to it often.

Thanks for this info!!

I'm not really doing too badly when it comes to my vax books...I have had Dr. M's book since I was prego 12 yrss ago,also have _What Your Doctoe May Not Tell YOu_,_Just A Little Prick_.....and on it's way to my doorstep, is_Educate Before You Vaccinate_.

Add in Romm's book and Hilary's new book, and I'm psyched!

I am off to find her blog.....

What a list of books! I have to admit, I've always made due with a book I grew up with, the parents guide to Bookshelf for Boys and Girls. The one I have is published in 1970, so has a bit about immunizations, but has a handy chart with "communicable diseases", signs symptoms, incubation, treatments.
Then it's followed by a section describing the diseases more visually.

I really want to check the others out...

I just got my copy of FOPTA today and it looks like an amazing read...wow...I can't wait to dig in...

BTW, if you do request a copy, make sure you donate to the trust as well. I read that less than 25% of people who receive books are making donations, so what does that mean once all the money in the trust runs out?

my cousin has Just a Little Prick and it looks like an amazing, although heavy book...i really would like to purchase it (and someday FOPTA, as well!)...where do you obtain copies of hilary's books? and is there a "standard" suggested donation? thanks!

Er, I'm not sure if I can put a direct link on here so just do a search for "beyond conformity" and the blog should come up...about the second one down, it has a nz address.

There's info on there about donations etc. Considering the amount they must spend on postage to mail these things (mine had $25 in postage affixed to the envelope), I'd say be as generous as you reasonably can.

Yes, and it's a poorly written, poorly edited, self-published book. I do not recommend it.
