To catch up, explore the foundation of our journey here – A Complete immunological Meltdown: Our story of beating Autism
We never thought it would happen to us, and there is not ONE parent on Earth that dreams of being the next in line. Unfortunately with the direction current statistics are headed they will. It breaks my heart. We put our faith and complete trust in Doctors to steer us away from harm and provide us the pros and cons of each decision that affect our health. The latin root of Doctor is “to teach” and that is precisely what they did so well as little as 50 years ago. They taught us how to treat illnesses at home, did not stop until they found the root cause and made good ‘ol house calls. Fast forward to today where we are “told” what to do, handed a prescription at nearly every visit and ridiculed if we mention the word…gasp…Natural!
Thru our journey of recovering two boys from autism we naturally had every Doctor in “western” medicine turn their backs on us. When our son was suffering from massive digestive issues, it was considered “un-related” and he quickly handed us a drug to mask the symptoms. Then there were the ticks and seizure-like activity that never seemed to end. Nothing showed up on the MRI or sleep study but again we were given a drug to mask the condition.
We searched and searched, with God guiding our path every step of the way, and with each turn and bump he brought just the right Doctor or treatment into our lives. With absolute prayer and trust God gave us our boys back. We absorbed more information in just a few short months, than our entire lives put together. Below is just a part of that process and some of the topics we wrestled with, ultimately finding what we believe to be truth.
The Fallacies of the Vaccine “Triumph”
Do any of us really understand what living conditions were like as little as 100 years ago in this country? Or the Dark Ages when the Black Plague reduced the entire population by a third?
By the mid-1800s, slums had become commonplace settlements in the western world. New York City had 100,000 slum dwellers living in 20,000 tenement buildings. They were in a crowded and vile predicament. Throughout these unsanitary slums, death was ever-present. Cholera, typhoid, scarlet fever, smallpox, typhus, and other infectious diseases were never idle. But during this time, the seeds of change were sown and slowly took root. It was the beginning of the Sanitation Revolution. A new understanding that filth contributed to human illness had come to light. It was also known that poverty was often a result of such illness and not just the cause. Based on this awareness, projects for the supply of clean water and removal of human and other waste gradually began to be implemented. (Dissolving Illusions.com) And because of that infectious disease began to decline before the implementation of vaccines.
Let’s paint a little picture for ya.
So let me get this straight, if I let my house look like this, never fed my children nutritious food, or gave them proper rest and never washed our hands with soap, then, yes we would have a whole host of diseases in our home! My child’s life-expectancy would dramatically decline as well because their body would have no strong immune function to fight the disease.
We DON’T live like that anymore. We have sanitation, sewage, fairly “clean” water minus brain toxifying fluoride, good food (try to ignore Monsanto) and trauma medicine.
This is exactly what I had to educate myself on in order to understand where most pediatricians are coming from. A lie. Parents are not getting the whole truth. When I declined the Chickenpox vaccine and asked my pediatrician why it would be so wrong to get this virus, his answer was “why would you want to do that and inconvenience you and your family?” Well sir, because then we would have 100% natural life-long immunity that I can also pass down to my children en-utero and they can then pass it too. That’s WHY.
And no, it would not be an inconvenience, because my child’s long-term permanent immunity is more important than short-term “convenience” that is riddled with possible debilitating side-effects.
If we can truly grasp how perfectly designed our bodies are by God, then filling it with synthetics and man-made substances is completely ignoring his intelligence. I admit medical statistics and research is not my gift so I rely on some very talented people, like this gal, to bring forth facts and figures. We make our decisions with a little thing called free-will; weighing the risks and rewards and ultimately choosing what aligns with our own beliefs and values. Having a Doctor force you into any decision strips you of your God-given right to choose.
We had to Ditch the Scare Tactics
Despite many well-documented historical problems, polio and smallpox vaccines serve as the anchor for vaccination faith today. The subject stirs passion in those who believe their ancestors were affected by the dreaded virus or their children could be crippled by it today.
I was that average person. The new mom scared of stirring the pot and challenging my babes Doctor. As we moved down the path of autism recovery it was a no-brainer that I needed to take control of our own families health and build a comfort zone of how far I was willing to go outside the realm of allopathic medicine. Admittedly it was a slow process at first. For a person who perceived natural medicine as a bunch of hippie-chick-cuckoos, I was shackled to modern medicine and all the wonder drugs that it had to offer.
Fast-forward to multiple middle-of-the-night emergency room visits for breathing treatments, the pulmonary specialist who prescribed 3 separate steroid inhalers and casually told us to give our boy Allegra everyday for the rest of his life, the neurologist who said our boy would never be able to function in the real world and that pediatrician who injected my boy with 8 vaccines in one visit, it was all enough for me to completely abandon non-trauma western medicine.
I embraced it and religiously put into practice a natural regimen every.single.day.
- We have not used Tylenol in over 3 years
- We do not give our children any prescription meds and would only do so as a last resort (it felt pretty great to toss the breathing machine)
- We have weathered strep throat, flu, whooping-cough, ear infections, pertussis, croup, eczema, digestive distress, heavy metal-toxicity and asthma (that was never present to begin with, but let me go ahead and give my son 3 steroid inhalers because a doc says to anyway right?) – ALL WITH NATURAL MEDICINE
We even live in the epicenter of the so-called measles outbreak. Everyone was “scared” and you cold feel the unease in the atmosphere during that time. We did not get the measles, nor did any of my friends, or their friends or even their friends. The population of Southern California is approximately 3.7 million and this is what happened:
“At least 21 cases of measles in Orange County, California so far this year, including 7 people who required hospitalization, in what the Orange County Health Department is calling the worst outbreak in 20 years. (2014)” With zero deaths.
Yes, you read it correct…21. Wow, that surely is a crazy outbreak. Hurry run and get your vaccine now. Calling this an outbreak is a complete fallacy and a dis-service to parents everywhere.
Why no deaths? Back to point #1, sanitation, sewage, clean water, nutrition, vitamins…
Of course this is not the case in third world countries, but rather than shoot up babies with a 10-in-1 vaccine let’s get ’em some clean water, a balanced diet and safe place to poop!
I wish my colleagues who discourse so prolixly about the treatment of this disease would recognize that the grass in the fields, inconspicuous as it is, has a greater power to heal this disease than all their fancied wisdom and unsurpassed panaceas. – Dutch physician, Abraham Bogaert, 1711
Why we are not easily swayed into Modern Medicine
Quite simply we currently have a better understanding of how and why God created our systems to function, and the gifts of nature he gave us to treat illness. To see what we rely on in our arsenal of natural medicine read here. Does that mean we completely disregard modern medicine? No. It has its use, and for our family it rests solely in trauma and immediate life-saving interventions.
We have come full-circle from a devastating diagnosis to recovery, and without a doubt at least 75% rests solely on clearing my boys systems of toxic metals with natural medicine; the other percentage, a team of amazing therapists. Each day I witness their systems getting stronger, battling illness with ease and my fears have completely diminished. I am empowered as a Dr. Mom to treat my family with an amazingly powerful collection of safe and effective medicine.
As a family we are confident in our health decisions, it may not be right for you and that is ok, we are all on our own journey. What we must NOT compromise on is allowing each person to choose their path without fear of persecution or bullying.
