    <p>Do you have any concerns vaccinating a baby who is teething?</p> <p> </p> <p>I've seen some information online (whether it's credible or not, I have no idea) that suggests that teething releases histamine which opens up the blood brain barrier and to avoid vaccinating babies while they are...

    <p>Question, I have a 9 yr old boy and 3 yr old girl and live in Columbus, OH where there are over 100+ mumps cases that grow by 10-15 per the day.  Both children are unvaccinated due to a very strong family history of autism, ADD in my son and MTHFR for both (daughter has 2 copies), and my...

    <p>Hi! My son will be 3 next month, and we're concerned about his bowel movements.</p> <p> </p> <p>Even as a baby being exclusively nursed, he hardly pooped! It would be like once every 2 or 3 days- and I didn't worry about it because I had no frame of reference (my only child) and he wasn't...

    <p>Hi Dr. Sears,</p> <p> </p> <p>I was wondering what your thoughts and recommendations are regarding fluoride treatments and children. My little one is 4 1/2 and I've refused fluoride topical applications in the past with the pediatric dentist. At the last appointment I had mentioned when I...

    Hi there, I've posted this on the general forum, but wanted your advice as well, as I've read your book and found it very informative. My two kids, 3 and 5 are not vaccinated. I feel pretty confident about that these days. We typically visit family in Israel in the winter, but I now understand...

    Hi Dr. Sears,<br><br> In your practice, how are children handling the first MMR at 4-5 years old? In this age range, have you seen any regression/behavioral/gastro changes following this vaccine that you are concerned about? Do those in the 6-10 age range handle the vaccine even better?<br><br>...
