Just so you know...

I got this info off of my sister in laws (Kristen Hon) Blog. Very good information to have! Her daughter has some sensory, developmental issues and they have been able to link some of the characteristics back to the day they had her immunizations. I know many of you probably think it's crazy not to have your child immunized, but I'm a firm believer in not doing it, especially when they are babies. I know of quite a few people who have children that have had reactions to them. The doctors don't give you all the information. You might think they always have your best interest at heart, but honestly do you really think it's for you or the money? Well those might be fighting words. So here's some info for those of you who don't research these things and just follow the doctor's instructions. Also visit kristen's blog, she has some other great information and a speech that you should listen to. She has really done her homework on the vaccines. I'm not trying to cause a fight on here either. It's just information that really is useful. Most people don't think to even look at both sides, the doc says and you do. Read on, you'll find out things that may surprise you!

Medical professionals that ensure parents that mercury has been removed from all vaccines are lying. They might tell you that only trace amounts of mercury have been found in a few vaccines. Did you know that those small trace amounts are too toxic for drinking water??

Here is a website to go & see what vaccines still have thimerosal (mercury)

Here is an alternate vaccine schedule... This recommendation was written by Donald Miller, MD who is cardiac surgeon and Professor of Surgery at the University of Washington in Seattle and one of the members of the Doctors for disasters preparedness. Here is the link to the article that he wrote I hope everyone will read. It is well worth your time.

1. No vaccinations until a child is 2 years old

2. No vaccines that contain thimersol(mercury)

3.No live virus vaccines (except for small pox if it should reoccur)

4. These vaccines, to be given one at a time, every 6 months beginning at age 2






Did you Know....

* we give the same amount of a vaccine to a newborn that we would give to a full size adult. One size fits all is ridiculous. Why do we have to give different amounts of medicine for different ages but when it comes to vaccines it doesn't matter??????

*The Flu vaccines still have a full dose of mercury in it. I find it interesting that Doctors encourage us to get the flu vaccine while we are pregnant but discourage us to eat fish while pregnant to prevent us getting any mercury. Does that make sense???

* Children who delay vaccinations by 2 months cut their risk of asthma by ½ according to (Kozyrskyj, University of Manitoba)

* What are in the vaccines???(Mercury, Aluminum, viruses, bacteria, formaldehyde, MSG, HCL, Antibiotics, Human, Cow, Chicken, Guinea Pig, Monkey tissue/serum, Yeast, and Egg)

* The current schedule requires 36 vaccines by the time a child is 6 and the majority are given to the children by the age of 15 months compared to 1983 when children received 10 vaccines in the same time period.

*7 Vaccines injected into a 13lb two month old infant is equivalent to 70 doses in a 130 lb adult.

*50 years ago when immunization schedule contained only 4 vaccines, autism was virtually unknown

* Type 1 diabetes went from 1 in 7,100 children in the 1950's to now 1 in 480* The CDC has not done any long term studies to see if vaccine schedule is safe

* US government has paid out more then $11.5 billion in vaccine injury compensation

Here are some tips I found on taca.orgs website. (talk about curing autism)
1. Do not vaccinate newborns. When you are ready to vaccinate – check into a slower vaccination schedule that may work for your family, address your concerns, and achieve public health policy slowly.

2. Avoid re-immunization with a vaccine after a previous bad reaction.

3. NEVER vaccinate ill children or children recovering from an infection.

4. Space vaccines - do not give multiple vaccines in 1 day.(THAT INCLUDES single vaccine doses that have multiple viruses! Split them up!)

5. Use single-dose vials from which to draw up the vaccines as opposed to multiple-dose vials which provide less uniform dosage.

6. Use inactivated polio. (the shot, not the drops)

7. Give RDA (Recommended Daily Allowances) of Vitamin C before and after vaccines

8. Give a natural form of Vitamin A ( cod liver oil ) to keep RDA's at level at all times for the age.

9. Separate the MMR into 3 doses: start with measles at 12-15 months, then mumps at 18-21 months, rubella at 24-27 months.

10. Do not give live virus vaccines to immunodeficient children.

11. Do not give vaccines if allergic to any of these components:i. Yeast - Hep B ii. Eggs - MMR iii. Neonycian - MMR or Varicella

12. Hold off on the Varicella until 10-12 years and if the child is shown not immunity to Chicken pox.

13. Check vaccine titers before giving boosters (Most people are immune after one dose. We continue to get multiple doses that MAY NOT BE NEEDED. Have them check antibody levels via titres blood test.)


These recommendations are based on great books for all parents/grandparents:

• What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Children's Vaccinationsby Stephanie Cave, MD (paperback, September 2001)

• The Vaccine Book: Making the Right Decision for Your Child (Sears Parenting Library), by Robert Sears, (paperback, 2007)

• Evidence of Harm by David Kirby

• Additional reading on this important topic can be located at the Autism Research Institute:
* Another great web site with the latest research papers can be found at

*If you read through this whole thing then I applaud you. If you were ever unsure of vaccinations then I hope this cleared the air. Thanks for listening!!

Another game, But I would love to see the comments!

Play along with me!! Here is how:
1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember.
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory of you. It's actually pretty funny to the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you.

San Diego Trip

Our family vacation, what can I say... sometimes it was fun! Looking back on it now I think I would skip the whole sea world part and just hang out at the beach. Sea World was fun and the kids really liked the shows, but we had most of our melt downs there, and i prefer not to play the part of crazed parents! The beach on the other hand was almost melt down free. Mallory hardly came out of the ocean the whole time we were there. She loved it, she hung out in the waves even when everyone else was taking a break. Garrett and Travis spent most of their time playing in the sand. Garrett and I started one big sand castle, unfortunately it became a casualty of the sea. Apparently we built it too low and the tide came in quick! He had fun searching for sea shells and Travis really liked chasing the sea gulls. I think if he could talk he would say his favorite part was chasing the birds wherever we went! So next time... California beaches here we come! My parents and sisters came a long too, we're glad they could join us, although it probably wasn't as relaxing as they were hoping for. Mallory really had fun with them at the beach though, jumping through the waves with them.
