<p>My 3 y/o DD is about to get her first vax ever in a few weeks (DTaP.)  I am planning to do the Dr. Sears nutritional approach (1500IU vit A, 250mg Vit C and probiotics and fish oils) before and after the vax.  I also am adding vitamin D (800IU since we do this anyway along with fish oils and probiotics daily.)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>However I'm a nervous mama about this.  I always thought my kids would remain unvaxxed but life changes and (see my other posts) we are going to do 3 doses of DTaP.  I want to make sure I did the best I could for my DD, and I really like and use homeopathics in my daily life.  I'd like to add some homeopathic support around the time of the vax but not sure where to start as far as remedies/potency/dosing with this.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Can anyone help? </p>

<p>I am not sure homeopathy is really compatible with the practice of vaccination. You could ask for the used vial and make your own homeopathic from it I guess. I would wait and see if she displays any adverse reactions, and then treat those with homeopathy. I guess this wasn't what you wanted in an answer. What are you exactly trying to achieve with homeopathy prior to vaccination?</p>

<p>Oh, I don't think it is an odd query at all.  In Aviva Jill Romm's book she talks specifically about using homeopathy before/after a vax to help prevent bad reactions.  But her recommendations are a bit hard to understand and a bit cumbersome.  So I was just hoping others might have asked their NDs or homeopathic doctors and found an easier recipe.  Ledum seems to be the most popular remedy I read about online but the dose and usage is varying.</p>

<p>My thinking was you won't know until she has had the vaccine what reaction she will have to the ingredients. What exactly are you trying to mitigate with homeopathy prior and post vaccination - the effects of the (less than desirable) ingredients? I will be blunt here, I think Romm's suggestions really are not in the true spirit of homeopathy, however, many do utilize remedies in this way. As I said, it would be worth getting the used vial and making your own remedy, that way you will have the exact lot potentized. Ledum is a very generic vaccine remedy (vet's use it post rabies vaccination). The other common generic remedy is Thuja. You will of course want your DD to be completely healthy prior to vaccination and I would also make sure she hasn't recently been shocked or stressed by anything.</p>

<div><b>The procedure is as follows: two days before vaccination, give the potentised vaccine (e.g. DKTP) at 200C, about 10 small granules (globules), and repeat after vaccination, on the same day. The granules are of lactose and are absorbed quickly in the mouth. If there is to be no further vaccination for the time being, it is a good idea to administer the potentised vaccine a month later in increasing potencies of 30C, 200C,1M and 10M on four consecutive days in order to correct any possible disturbance to the deeper energy levels. If, as can never be completely excluded, complications still occur despite these preventive measures, it is recommended that a solution in water of the 200C be given for three days at the acute stage and to repeat the whole series several weeks later. </b></div>

<p>Many years ago I purchased a remedy for kids to relieve immunization "after effects" around 1998.  I used it through all my DDs'  immunizations when they were babies through all their shots.  I'm pretty sure it was homeopathic but I can't remember the brand.  I was in fact searching for it this morning.  I intended to give it to DD after her tetanus shot yesterday but forgot about it.  Couldn't find it :(  Anyone remember it?</p>

<p>I don't know anything about homeopathy, but Dr Sears suggestions all seem related to boosting the immune system (ie. the kinds of things I might do in cold season to try to keep my body fighting off all those germs), so all seem sensible in a case when you want the vaccination to trigger the most effective immune response possible. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm sure you're making the right decision, and I give you a lot of respect for being able to change your mind in this way in the face of a changing set of circumstances. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Hope the kids react well to the vaccines and you don't worry too much more about your decision. :) </p>
