As an autism mom, sometimes people ask me how I feel about vaccines. I have come to the point where its tremendously important to me to make sure that I tell people what happened to Dominic after his shots. That I speak of the regression, and hope that my words make new parents think before they vaccinate.  Make them look at their family history first and maybe manage to avoid the pain of a regression. 

Of course, you might be one of the people whose children seem to be just fine. Though those kiddos are fewer and harder to find these days. Autism(now one in 88 kids/one in 55 boys and climbing). Severe allergies. Severe Eczema. ADD. ADHD. OCD. Asthma. Diabetes. Seizures. Neurological tics. Anxiety disorders. PANS/PANDAS. Our children are over-vaccinated yet sicker than ever. Why is that?

Our food supply is a genetically modified mess and our environment is polluted, so vaccines aren’t the only culprit, but in my opinion they are a big one. This opinion is supported by an increasing number of Western doctors and by every alternative medicine practitioner we’ve ever used, and there have been many.  I do post frequently links on things that resonate with my soul, and you don't have to read them. But please please please be informed before you decide on vaccines.

One thing I ask you to consider is why I would want to sway you either way? What is my motivation? What do I stand to gain? I am not  looking for someone to blame for my child’s autism.  Our decision to vaccinate Dominic was actually a decision. We waiting until he was 2 before we started.  And we only did 1 at a time, with a full month in between shots.   We have no one to blame but ourselves for the shots that he did get.   I’m not going to make any money if you don’t follow the recommended vaccine schedule. I’m not an uneducated, irresponsible person who is clueless about epidemics. I just happen to have seen the charts which show childhood diseases were already well on decline before the introduction of vaccines. And from what I have read, the only cases of polio that have occurred since the vaccine was introduced were caused by the vaccine itself.

I read a lot.

So, if you’ve come here to learn, have at it. Keep an open mind, and go with your own gut. As parents it’s the most powerful thing we have. Whatever you decide, make your decisions from a place of power and not a place of fear. And remember if you are undecided, it is okay to wait. It’s okay to go low and slow. It’s okay to learn about the risks/benefits of each vaccine and to pick and choose. It’s okay to take your time. It’s okay to say no if vaccinating your child doesn’t feel right for you. You can always change your mind and do it, but if you do it you can never change your mind and go back.

It didn’t used to be the case, but these days the more educated the mother, the fewer vaccines a child receives.

Here are some links which lead to information which helps explain why:

Congress slams CDC, NIH, at the first Congressional Hearings on Autism in ten years.

Director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy, as well as its Center of Excellence for Influenza Research and Surveillance says flu shot “does not protect as promoted. It’s all a sales job: it’s all public relations.”

Merck sued by vaccine researchers.
GlaxoSmithKline fined $3 billion for bribing doctors, lying to the FDA, hiding clinical trial data and fraudulent marketing.

90% of recent Vermont Whooping Cough Cases were among vaccinated individuals. Vermont Department of Public Health says the vaccine “is less good than we’d like.”

Courts ruled MMR caused autism in this child.

MMR caused autism in this child too.

27,801 adverse reactions to Gardisil so far. 5,582 girls have been injured and did not recover, 910 are disabled, and 124 have DIED (these numbers are always climbing).

Simpsonwood Transcript (takes several seconds to load, but it comes up eventually). The NIH data referred to in this document mysteriously disappeared and the doctor who expressed concerns about thimerisol(a mercury preservative), later recanted and then went to work for Big Pharma. The secret Simpsonwood meeting is referred to in David Kirby’s book Evidence of Harm, linked above.

Is Alzheimer’s autism for old people?

“The numbers used in the U.S. to claim that the Salk vaccine caused a huge reduction in the number of cases of paralysis due to polio were manipulated by changing the criteria for diagnosing the disease.”
