Polio Immunizations

Posted by Stephanie [782.1351] on September 04, 2006 at 23:19:13:

I need everyone's thoughts, opinions and advice on this one. My youngest son has just turned two and has never had any vaccinations (while my older two have been vaccinated to the hilt because I didn't used to know better). I am considering starting just the polio vaccine series for him because the effects of the disease are frightening to me. We live in San Diego and because it is a military town and near an international border there is a supposed increase risk for polio although I have never heard of an outbreak while I have lived here. On the other hand, I feel my job as a mother is to make decisions based on knowledge, not just emotion (fear). I want to protect him, but I'm not sure what is the best course of action here. Any advice or information is greatly appreciated.

you can get polio from the polio vaccine. the polio vaccine has caused a lot of brain tumors and may be responsible for the prevalence of HIV. It has the same objectionable and carcinogenic preservatives as other vaccines. For more info, check out www.909shot.com

Stephanie,

This is a very complex question. See the archives about what I think about it. I still think the best approach is to practice wellness for the child so as to use their natural immunity to protect them. That is also the best protection against any complications of immunizations.

Homeopathic immunizations should be considered but you just have to learn about them.

Good luck!

Walt

Ann- I am aware that the use of the live oral polio can cause polio, but I was not aware that the dead polio injection caused polio. Were you talking about just the live vaccine or both types? The live oral vaccination is no longer in use in my state because of the risk of disease. Thanks for your reply. I really respect your opinion.

each form has its own dangers. The oral has caused polio and brain tumors, the injectable has carcinogens and may have spread HIV. All vaccines involve messing with nature-disease may strengthen our immune systems and make us better able to fight off diseases of adulthood and vaccines may commit too much of the immune system to a single disease.
Among all the vaccine books I've read there was one report about the two Carolinas, in the 50's. The health officer of one state, noticing that polio was much more prevalent in summer, a time when people were consuming a lot more sugar (unline now, when sugar is common year round) put out an advisory, recommending limiting sugar intake. His state had much less polio that summer than the neighboring other carolina. Speak to the fact that contagious disease will be caught by people with compromised immune systems. Sugar interfers with the action and speed of white blood cells.
New Atlatean Books in Santa Fe, NM has the best selections of vaccine books I've seen, if you want to research more. Mothering magazine has always published good vaccine articles and the magazine, Insight, does some, too.

Ann-I already read Mothering. It is a fantastic magazine. Thanks you for the other resources. This answers the question that I will not be getting this shot on Thursday when he has his check up. I can't get enough reading done by then. He is home with me, but we do venture out to places that a lot of tourists visit and it just scares me to think of him contracting polio. He's not sugar eater, but I find it hard to keep the children from getting colds even though we practice wellness. Since we live in a world with so many environmental pollutants, exercise and eating right doesn't always keep us well. It is a tough decision but I will refrain from the shot for now. I will read the archives and the book you suggested.

in some people, dairy and/or gluten can make them more susceptible to colds and other respiratory illnesses.
The blood type O's in my faily have given up gluten grains-they use brown rice, corn, and millet instead.
