alternate vaccine schedule

I've meant to think about it.


But the truth is...my brain is so absorbed with IS stuff...particularly now...that thinking about how to proceed with Trevor's vaccinations has been shelved for awhile.

Although recently this topic has come up for discussion on my IS yahoo forum. And several interesting sites were mentioned.

I loved
this one...which includes an alternate schedule. It's authored by Donald Miller whose credentials include being a cardiac surgeon.

And of course I love the
Generation Rescue site. I admit to finding Jenny McCarthy adorable! Her passionate advocacy is intoxicating for me!

I so agree. We have been avoiding Kay's vax. I don't think she is ready to proceed. Especially now with the return, or at least partial return of Kay's IS.

We really want to get on board with a DAN doc for all our kids, but that is $300 x3 (nearly a G, for all) just to see one. They don't take HMO.

Now, why the heck aren't all neurological disorders covered by insurance? ASD things are not covered. I made the mistake of putting Autism on Javi's med stuff, only because we went through them for dx. We didn't know any better at the time. It isn't listed anywhere on Ethan's, thank goodness!

I know that "if" & that is with a big I-F we have anymore children we will definitely be looking at the whole Vax issue with a closer eye. If you really want to get upset with this country's vax schedule, read Jenny M's new book "mother warriors". I was so enraged at how these children are being poisoned. I'm not anti- vax, don't get me wrong i do think we need them. i just strongly agree that they need to be spread out, and the whole schedule be revamped. i too love Jenny M.! She is so inspiring to me.

were in the same boat. Dawson has not had vacs since his two months. His seizures started about 2 weeks afterwards and proceeding with them has not been a very big priority with us. Were just not sure what to do at this point.

Marissa is a vaccine injury baby. <4 days from immunization to seizure.

I'm with you. Except this is something I think I have intentionally/unintentionally been avoiding. The last thing our babes need is a nuero assault from vaccinations. Our naturopath offers alternatives, and I've been meaning to explore them further and act on it, but haven't yet.
It's just one more thing, right? And right now you have many other important things to weigh, consider and act on. One at a time....
