Since my husband and I are not planning to vax our LO (2 mos. old), I'm considering taking him in to see a naturopath for natural supplements to boost his immune system. I'm just curious to know your thoughts/opinions about naturopaths and what I might expect. Have any of your children successfully overcome a serious illness with homeopathic remedies?

I haven't seen one (yet?), but everyone on the huge no-Vax yahoo group I'm on seems to love a good naturopath.

I LOVE my naturopathic doctor <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">:. However, homeopathy is only one of the modalities they use, they have several others such as Chinese Medicine and accupuncture. The only thing I would suggest before you see a naturopath is to make sure that he/she is a graduate of an accredited institution. <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Accredited_Naturopathic_Medical_Schools_in_North_America" target="_blank">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of..._North_America</a>

My oldest grandson has had some very serious infections. High fevers for an extended period of time. We did not go to any doctor at all. He cured himself. He is very healthy normally but went through a period of infections. I think it was to rid his body of the vax poisons. After that year he was changed and ready for Kindergarten (before we had doubts that he could handle it).<br><br>
We don't believe in supplements unless they are a foods like CLO, Probiotics, etc.

Well...I just brought my son in for his first appt. w/a local naturopath and she was phenomenal! She spent an hour and a half with us and said right off the bat that she does not believe in vaccinations (neither of her sons are vax'd). She was very knowledgeable about natural remedies and homeopathy. In addition, she was a huge advocate for extended breastfeeding; I thought a year was plenty but she encouraged me to try to nurse at least two years to build up my son's immunity. She also told me to start taking Cod Liver Oil. My husband and I walked out of the appointment feeling very relieved. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">:<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/goorganic.jpg" style="border:0px solid;" title="go organic">:<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/novaxnocirc.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Novaxnocirc">:<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bfinfant.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bfinfant">:<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/femalesling.GIF" style="border:0px solid;" title="Femalesling">:<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/familybed1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Familybed1">:msl ing:<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/waterbirth.jpg" style="border:0px solid;" title="Waterbirth">:<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/babyboy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Babyboy">:<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/cd.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Cd">:<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dog2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dog">:<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dog2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dog">:

Alright!!! I'm so glad you had a good experience. Like I said, I love my ND. They really get to know the "whole" person and treat you as such rather than to put a bandaid on your symptoms like allopathic doctors tend to do with prescriptions <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:
