If you HAVE to vaccinate this article has steps you can take to try to minimize some of the possible risks associated with vaccination. This is not an article to debate vaccine safety or efficacy. This is for the person who has done the research and has decided, for whatever reason, vaccines are not in their, or their child’s best interests, but are now in the position of having to vaccinate and want to try to minimize some of the risks in doing so.
Before we get into things please be sure of your situation. Please know the laws in your state. If you do not know the laws for your state for school attendance please look them up HERE. Many schools upon registration will say vaccines are mandatory for attendance when in reality there may be more than one exemption available in your state. If you are an adult and in a situation of being forced into vaccination to keep your job, be sure of your rights.
Also if you live in a state with mandatory vaccination for school attendance, and you have decided against vaccines, please consider homeschooling. Many people automatically assume they can’t homeschool. You would be shocked how many people can pull off homeschooling. I know many single working mothers that also homeschool their children, as well as families where both parents have demanding careers AND they homeschool. It can be done.
Onto what can be done if you HAVE to vaccinate:
#1 Have your titers drawn. I have heard of many situations where people end up having titers and do not remember ever having the illness. It turns out they must have had a very mild form of the illness. They never knew they had measles, or chickenpox, or xyz illness.
#2 Do not get vaccinated during an illness. This should hopefully be self explanatory.
#3 If at all possible space the vaccines out. Look into Dr. Paul Thomas’ schedule (Vaccine Friendly Plan) and Dr. Sears’ schedule (The Vaccine Book: Making the Right Decision for Your Child).
#4 For those of you that must get the flu vaccine for employment – INSIST it be the preservative free version.
#5 Never take Tylenol (Acetaminophen) within the weeks before or after vaccination. You should never take tylenol period, but ESPECIALLY in conjunction with vaccination. Tylenol is highly toxic to the liver and depletes glutathione, which is essential for detoxification.
#6 Up your vitamin C intake. This is for all vaccines, but especially Tdap, Dtap, and DTP/DPT (international). Dr Archie Kalokerinos demonstrated many years ago that low vitamin C levels were associated with adverse outcomes from vaccination, specifically with DTP/DPT. Scroll down to Dosage Information for Pediatricians and Parents in THIS article for more information.
#7 Increase intake of REAL vitamin A. High quality Cod Liver Oil is a good choice, it is naturally high in vitamin A. Beta carotene is not the preferred source of vitamin A in this situation. Many people are poor converters of beta carotene to vitamin A. Vitamin A is essential to immunity, and in particular to fighting the measles virus. Why is this important? The MMR vaccine is a LIVE virus vaccine. You can find the vitamin A protocol HERE.
#8 Ledum 30c taken at the time of vaccination, meaning IMMEDIATELY after. It is known in homeopathic literature to help lessen the chance of side effects from vaccination. Ledum 30c can be taken twice daily for the day of and the day following vaccination for best results.
#9 Thuja 30c can be taken after vaccination for symptoms of “never well since vaccination”. Homeopathic Thuja is known historically for its treatment of vaccinosis. Thuja 30c can be taken twice daily until the symptoms cease or until the symptoms change*.
#10 Schedule for a homeopathic consultation, or with another complimentary health professional, if there continues to be issues or adverse symptoms following vaccination.
Again this article is not intended as advice for or against vaccination. Vaccination is a personal decision to be made with a medical professional that knows your medical history. (Please read full disclaimer below.)
*Please do not continue to take a homeopathic remedy that does not show improvement in symptoms. If nothing improves, stop the remedy.
