Vaccines are my pet peeve in life. The only "SIDS" case I have had
in my practise (20 yrs, 800 births) was a little boy named Sam. His
Mom had him in hospital with no meds and no intervention. She was
someone I judged to be "too conservative" for me to mention the
risks of vaccines.
Her baby had thrush at
six weeks, so she took him to the doctor and he received an
antifungal treatment for the thrush, then she drove to the public
health clinic and he was given oral Polio and DPT shot. He never
woke up for his 3:00 am feed . . . . . I'll never forget getting
the news he was dead. I told his Mom about my judgement of her and
my cowardice to tell her about vaccine risks, and she slammed her
fist into the kitchen wall. I promised her I would do everything I
could to stop this health holocaust and to never let another client
vaccinate without information about the risks.
This is what drives my passion.
