A Word on Vaccines......
Since my son has autism, I get asked many times what my stand is on Vaccines. No, I am not against them. However, I am very against how they are administered. You see, in years past, there were only a few vaccines given.Today, your little infant is given some straight out of the shoot and usually around 5 or more at any one visit. Here lies the problem. First of all, a newborn baby does not have an immune system that can fight off the antigen put in their body. Why would we then inject them with something that is so hard for their bodies to fight. That starts the problems right away. Then, a few months later when they still don't have the system in place to fight off diseases, lets give them 5-6 more! Crazy. By doing this, the body is under turmoil in so many cases, especially the stomach. If you add antibiotics to the mess, you can start the process for deterioration not to mention any mercury that the vaccine can contain. What am I advocating? Take control. Do not blindly do what the pediatrician tells you. I always tell moms to never, ever get the vaccine in the hospital. Always delay the vaccine schedule. I would wait to start the immunizations for at least 6 months, if not to a year. Also, give only 1 shot at a time. Never multiple and never when the child is sick or has recently been on antibiotics. If this is followed, the body is so much better equipped to fight off the disease you are injecting into their body. They will still have all the shots completed before they enter kindergarten. I am certainly not alone in my thinking. Most autism groups and naturopathic Dr.s will advocate the same thing. You, as parents need to be in charge, not the pediatrician. I do not believe that vaccines alone cause the problems of autism, however, I believe that it is the first culprit in what contributes to the deterioration of an otherwise normal, healthy little child. That is the true tragedy, it can be prevented.
