Do you ever wonder why they combine 3-6 diseases into one vaccine for babies and children?
The CDC says they give combination vaccines so the kids and parents have to endure less “stress” getting multiple shots. Do you think it’s really because they know how toxic each vaccine is, filled with chemicals and heavy metals?
The thing is, nature doesn’t work that way. Nature doesn’t expose the immune system to multiple diseases at one time. Can you imagine if I took my infant or immune-compromised child to a home where there were active cases of measles, mumps, rubella and chicken pox all at the same time?
Whew. My previous blog about why I’m not afraid of measles has gotten over 21,000 hits and 5000 Facebook likes in 3 days. People are so hungry (ahem) for nutritional solutions to health care issues. The feedback for the blog has been overwhelmingly positive, though I have been called all sorts of untoward names. Someone even said to me that using whole food nutritional strategies to boost the immune system was akin to “snake oil.”
There is so much fear out there. There are so many people who truly believe that pharmaceuticals such as drugs and vaccines are the only answer, and without “modern medicine”, we are are all going to die. I have such compassion for people who live in that fear, because a) I used to live that way, and b) it’s not a joyful way to live.
So let me reiterate. We don’t have to be afraid.
Update, January 30, 2015: Thank you so much for your positive feedback about this post! You people rock. Due to popular demand, I have revised the blog to include more citations so that you know I am not pulling the wool over your eyes. Likewise, at the request of nutrition guru, Sally Fallon Morrell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation, I have added in two more effective prevention strategies to help boost immunity, both of which are, of course, back up by science, just like all the others. Be sure to download the revised Strategy flyer!
Everyone should follow a measles prevention strategy by strengthening their health and immune system, even if they're vaccinated. Here's my strategy.
