The Vaccine Battle

I had typed up a response to something a friend posted on Facebook, but in the end I really didn't have the energy to battle it out all day so I decided not to hit the submit button and to just post on here.  A friend had posted a link to 'Proof Vaccines Didn't Save Us'.  Of course she had to know that she'd face some backlash, but she was also getting some support as well.  I was going to share the following with her, but in the end it was just best to get it on paper and hit delete, that was until my husband said, "You should put that on your blog."  Great idea, so here it goes:

"I unfortunately have had the opportunity to witness first hand a violent reaction to a vaccine. It’s not a situation I chose, but none-the-less one that has forced me to research to make my own educated decisions instead of blindly following the doctor’s advice as I had initially done. My doctor didn’t believe vaccines caused injury until she witness my son’s 12-day anaphylatic response to a DTaP. From that point forward she wasn’t willing to continue vaccinating him. Our allergist has also agreed, and stated that “as a society we’ve basically eradicated diseases such as chicken pox, mumps, and measles but have created a whole slew of new ailments like asthma, allergies, and autism.” That statement has always stood out to me because he’s implying that these current epidemics are a result of vaccines. I have since been given 2 medical opinions and waivers from MDs stating that my child is not to receive any further vaccinations due to adverse reaction. From my standpoint, if vaccines really do work then let the rest of the population get them to continue to protect my child. But I am so grateful that our state still allows people to make a decision that’s in the best interest for their child because it’s clear that vaccines are not right for everyone. The scary part is that so many pediatricians do not know what is actually in the vaccines, that they just accept the general blanket statement that everyone should be vaccinated as guidelines put forth by the medical community that is heavily backed by the pharmaceutical companies who are making and profiting from the vaccines. ‘The Vaccine Book’ by Dr. Sears does a nice job going through each vaccine pamphlet and identifying the adjuvants, then weighing the risks of the disease verses that of the vaccine. He’s actually pro-vaccine, but believes it should be done with caution.

According to the federal government’s own data, vaccine injury is real. That’s why they created the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System that has paid out over $2 billion dollars in tax payer dollars to vaccine injured victims. Their own site states that VAERS receives around 30,000 reports annually, with 13% classified as serious (e.g., associated with disability, hospitalization, life-threatening illness or death) (CDC VAERS Master Search Tool, April 2, 2008). Since 1990, VAERS has received over 200,000 reports…"


  1. Good decision not to post, you will just get attacked. There are fear tactics in the news that tell people that unvaccinated kids pose a danger. I don't understand HOW, if vaccines work, then their kids are protected!! So how is it a danger to vaccinated kids?
    The only risk I see, is vaccine manufacturers that are protected from lawsuits by the government.

  2. It's not a danger to vaccinated kids. It's a danger to kids who aren't old enough to get vaccinated yet (as well as immune-compromised people, the elderly, and older kids whose parents chose not to vaccinate them.) The "herd immunity" of having a majority of kids vaccinated prevents diseases from spreading. The more unvaccinated kids, the lower the herd immunity, the greater the risk of an outbreak of something like Haemophilus influenza b (see

  3. I think the ILLNESS needs to be feared, not a vaccine status. The infants and immuno-compromised should avoid sick people as their best bet, because even vaccinated individuals can spread the illness.
    Certain people can't get vaccinated due to health reasons, or religious reasons because some vaccines are grown on aborted fetal tissue and these people should not be persecuted or discriminated against!!

    1. Hi Eczema Mom

      thanks for all your updates, as usual! I know you really changed you mind about vaccinations, as I have- as a lot of people do when they find out more information.

      I thought you might want to put your 2 cents in on this website, as your blog is mentioned in the comments, and they are asking about people's experiences of NAET if they have had it, and whether they have success or not.

      I have been following you right along, such a great story, and I wish you more and more success!

  4. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on vaccination. I have a son who is autistic....I never noticed any issues with the vaccines...until he started to get allergy treatment vaccines. The dosis are the first couple we had no issues...but when he got to 30 units he regressed. He lost all the language skills he had so difficultly aquired. I was soooo angry with the allergist because he told me that vaccines don't cause autism and that he had several autistic patients.

    How could I have been so naive to believe him with all the parent testamonials I had read!

    Anyway...we have started NAET treatments as an alternative to his allergies with GREAT response. He has recovered some of his lost language skills, he is able to eat cheese with no severe reaction and I have seen more progress in 4-5 NAET treatments than his 6 months of Occupational and Speech Therapy before trying NAET.

    Thanks for having the courage to share! .
