I swear vaccines are horrible for Elise.
Everytime I vaccinate Elise she gets sick and when I spend months with no vaccine she never gets sick I feel like stopping vaccines altogether. I feel like they are doing more bad than good and messing too much with her immune system she is not healthy when vaccines are given. it's like her immune system deteriorates slowly.
There are additives in vaccines that do break down the immune system.
Personally, that's one of the biggest reasons we stopped. But that is a decision to make after doing a lot of research and not lightly.
Why don't you try giving her chewable vitamin c's or liquid elderberry syrup? They are both HUGE immune boosters.
We started off stopping the DTaP, chicken pox, all forms of flu and MMR.. After looking into them more, we stopped the rest. Andrew had a reaction to the MMR that started our research. We have gotten a few here and there, but insisted on certain forms. Eva got a tetanus shot after she cut her forehead open on the bed frame, but we insisted they order in JUST the tetanus instead of the DTaP-they were mad, but it was our kid not theirs. I have since learned that tetanus will only develop if the wound is not kept clean and lives in horse poop-not something found in our house. Pertussis is a little bit of a worry, but we keep immune systems up and catch colds as they begin so they develop into something worse. The mumps are more of an inconvenience than anything, Andrew had the measles from the shot, so he has a lifelong immunity and I had rubella, so they get some immunity through the breastmilk... Grace also got the vitamin k shot when she was born (totally unneccesary, their blood clots on their own at 8 days and the more greens you eat in pregnancy, the more they have in their system to begin with) because I didn't have the energy to argue with them, but I did insist on the oral version instead of the shot-less additives. And I get the rhogham when needed while pregnant.
Yes, the things we have vaccines for can be scary, but it was rare that a child was severely injured from the disease and once they got it, they had a lifelong immunity as opposed to vaccines which really need a booster every 5-7 years.
I guess it really comes down to (for us anyway), boost their immune system to keep them healthy from what we can and learn how to treat what they do get, or wonder what all the additives in the vaccine will do to their bodies.. Because the CDC is now admitting that there are many adverse reactions and the cases of different diseases now are more prevalent among those who get the vaccines than not.
Sorry to preach, just sharing our experiences.. It's every family's decision and should remain that way.
For us it is worth it, for others they decide to not do it. But it is something that each parent has to decide.
