As if we didn't already know how valuable breast milk is, researchers have discovered a team of immune cells in breast milk that are ready to conquer potential pathogens.
There is a plethora of research on the benefits of breast milk, including its ability to build baby's brain. In fact...
The holidays have passed, and we are now left with winter, and naturally, cold and flu season. While it's impossible to keep our little ones shielded from dreaded germs, there are some tried-and-true ways to boost their immunity.
We all know the basics: Wash your hands, eat a healthy diet, get...
I'm about 10 weeks pregnant and I'm a licensed massage therapist in the state of Texas. Today, I massaged a client who has recently been to Africa and they did not tell me. >:/ found out afterwards. (I don't know details yet, like what part of Africa or when they got back. Our front desk should...

Is there an alternative to conventional vaccination?
Let's find out.
Come to my presentation of the Homeoprophylaxis (HP) Study.
Homeopathy is a system of health that's over 200...
The title says it all. Do you think you should vax to promote herd immunity?
If so, why? If not - why not?
Does this differ from vax to vax?
I have to go now (work and kids - dontcha ya know) but will chime in later.
I enjoyed this 3 part series by Hilary Butler. It raises a lot of good questions and there are numerous links to studies so that you may follow up on your own.
Part 1: http://www.beyondconformity.org.nz/_blog/Hilary's_Desk/post/Vaccines_and_neonatal_immune_development/
All of the studies I have listed above tell us something similar; that the immune system...
Hoping someone might have some insight for us. 3 1/2 years ago, we made the choice not to vax our newborn daughter after extensively reading up on the various vaccines and the risks vs. benefit for each vaccine, given our specific circumstances. The fact that she was not going to day care...
Does your pediatrician discuss at well visits for your child the importance of vitamins and supplements, a good healthy diet, etc, to you in terms of building a healthy and strong immune system for your child, or do they just promote vaccination with providing no additional information on...
Do you think it is possible to use vaccines to eradicate diseases? Do you think it has been done in the case of small pox worldwide and other diseases in certain regions? If it might be possible, then what makes a disease worth eradicating or a vaccine worth using to eradicate it?

I have believed for a long time that Thimerosol and mercury were not the real problem with vaccines. From the things I have read and my education in physiology and pathology, its the altering of the immune system through artificial means of vaccinating that causes the damage.
Anyone know of...
One more vaccine question that I'm having trouble finding...
So I saw on one website (I think it was Tenpenny that said this) that the tetanus vaccine is a toxoid vaccine and our body can't build up immunity to poisons. So if vaccination doesn't make sense, would the tetanus immune globulin...
Did you get the polio vaccines for your kids? Assuming that your decision was well thought out (some people admit that they started out their parenting journey by unquestioningly getting all of the vaxes), what was the reasoning behind your decision?
I will be enrolling DD in preschool in the...

So I read in a recent article that said, because most of the population is vaccinated, this is the reason that outbreaks are contained. If the population were not vaccinated, there would be an outbreak across the entire nation.
Trying, as a non-vaxer, to figure this one out.
