I got fully vaxed as a child and with my last pregnancy, I was told that my blood work came back as showing I have no immunity to Rubella. Go figure. My doc suggested that if I was planning on having more kids, to consider getting vaxed.
I turned it down. I read the risks associated with the vax and I'm just not willing to put that crap into my body. If I remember correctly, you should not get pregnant for over 3 months after having that vax. Sorry...I'll just take my chances...which I don't feel is a chance. I eat healthy...get my sleep...take my needed supplements. It's just not something I'm willing to do. I won't vax my kids and I won't vax myself.
I agree with Gitti that by the time most people hit adulthood, they've been exposed to all kinds of illnesses. One of the reasons that non-vaxed people are showing to be more healthier is because their bodies have been allowed to be exposed to, and fight off, every germ it's come into contact with. That builds up the immune system. Think of it like an army...the germs--ie colds, etc--are like hand-to-hand combat training. The immune system learns how to fight off the germs/over abundance of bacteria/viruses that invade the body. Now, with vaccines, it's like the army sending in robots to do the work of the men it has. It's also like shooting those men with sleep-inducing drugs. So, when the germs, etc hit...the robots take care of the problem. What happens later in life...when the robots rust and die off is that you have an army that is ill-equipped to deal with what is coming at it. It spent so much time sleeping and depending on the robots that it will have to keep getting new robots to do the job.
I know a few people, as adults, who have never been vaccinated (which is pretty amazing, considering when they were born/grew up). And they are very healthy...they rarely ever get sick. But, it's not JUST being unvaxed...it's eating healthy...exercising...getting plenty of sleep...taking care of their bodies and their minds. It's painting a whole picture and not just the shade tree in the foreground.
You have to remember that MOST deaths from these diseases were due to lack of the necessary supplies needed (mainly clean water, good hygiene, and an understanding about the disease). If you allow the body to do what it needs to do, it will...no matter how old or young you are. The body was made to take care of itself.
