My kids are unvaxed, but am considering a tetanus vax since their grandparents have horses. Where would I find more info on supplements for helping their bodies through the vax process?

It's been awhile since you posted this, so you may have already looked into it and found your answer.


But if not, I'm going to direct you to Dr. Sears section on Vaccines and boosting your child's immune system. He suggests probiotics, omega-3s, vitamin c, and vitamin a for supplements and has a few nutritional suggestions too.


Here's the link.

What Makaleka said plus we limit or eliminate sugar for a couple days before and after. We don't have too many sugary things anyway but we've been especially careful when we did any vaccines.

Sweet, I was just about to ask this same question!  I knew I'd seen the info somewhere but couldn't remember where... thanks for posting the link.
