I am pretty sure my kids have contracted pertussis. They have both been to doc and they did not say that is what they had though.
My son is 11 and has had a cough since July 1 he is very slowly get better but still coughs. He never had the whoop sound. He did vomit a few times due to coughing overnight that kept him up.
My 4 year old daughter started the whoop coughing episodes about 5 days ago. I watched a video of a child coughing with pertussis and that is exactly what my daughter sounds like.
So anyone have any suggestions for getting through this?
Please don't flame me for not vaxxing. I hold strong in my decision and do not regret it.

I do not vaccinate either.

Pertussis is known as the 100 day cough for a reason.

The general suggestion is to take sodium ascorbate to bowel tolerance, 4-9000 mg in juice. Bowel tolerance is the point at which the individual's BM becomes loose.

Sodium ascorbate has been the recommended treatment for pertussis in the medical literature since the 1930s, before the vaccine was required.

or your local health food store - if you are in the Crunch CA Coast, there is one on every corner.

"Vaccines are like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get - acute hemorrhagic edema of infancy, allergies, diabetes, eczema, petit/gran mal seizures, ADEM, AFP, ASIA, CFS, GBS, JPA, JRA, LGS, LKS, MS, POF, POTS, RA, SJS, SLE, SPD, TPI, Henoch-Schonlein purpua, fibromyalgia, Retts Syndrome, encephalitis, Hughes Syndrome, neurological damage, coma, or death."
