I do not vaccinate my kids, and I am completely comfortable with that. But I was wondering, does anybody know where I can find reliable information about how to treat certain illnesses, such as measles, mumps, pertussis, etc.? The few doctors I have spoken to do not seem to know ANYTHING about treatment. Any tips on where to find this information, whether it's books or something else? THANKS!

Since this is about treatment of illnesses & not vaccines I'm going to move it over to H&H.

I haven't found a single source yet but right here in MDC seems to be a good source of info... by searching the threads.

I've also moved my kids to a non-vaxing pedi who I am hoping would be more well-versed on treatments... for example knowing not to give fever reducers for measles. Even though I have to pay totally out of pocket, I think it's worth it.

But really, I think MDC archives are my backup plan so far...
