After my experience with my daughter, my mother – who hates to meddle in my mothering – decided to share her experience with me. She also experienced side effects with immunizations; my sister, my mother and I contracted measles after my older sister became infected BY the immunization. I was ten months old and at the greatest risk. I became horribly infected and my mother was left to battle the measles herself while caring for two small children.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) says that serious reactions to immunizations are rare, but if you visit their website you will find that about 1 out of every 3,000 children have seizures caused by fever from the MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) immunization. And they don’t mention reactions like my daughter’s; they only say that very rarely severe reactions can occur. I don’t know about you, but 1 out of 3,000 doesn’t sound rare and seizures due to high fever sounds severe to me.
But what about these immunizations? We’re told that the benefits far outweigh the risks and for a time I believed that, but nearly losing a child was enough to make me question. The big push right now is for people to get the flu vaccine, but how many people out there know that most of these vaccines contain mercury in the form of something called “thimerisol” which is added to protect the integrity of the vaccine? And how many people realize that Bell’s palsy is a known side effect of these vaccines?
There are risks associated with taking the vaccine and not taking it. I think it is important for people to evaluate this for themselves. My children are teens now and very, very healthy. I give them natural homeopathic “vaccines” called “nosodes” to protect them and they seldom get sick. Neither of them has ever contracted the illnesses that they didn’t get their shots for. My mother used to get sick several times a year and the infection would spread to her lungs. She started on these nosodes 5 years ago to protect herself and hasn’t been sick since.
I can’t stress enough how important it is to investigate for yourself. Talk with your doctor, ask to see the Merck Manual or ask your pharmacist for a list of ALL of the known side effects. If you have an alternative medical professional, talk to them about getting on the nosode to protect yourself if you opt not to have the vaccine, or call me at the store for more information.
