Why I Don’t Vaccinate My Babies

This is always a very heated debate among people, parents or not. My decision not to vaccinate my children was made after much research and discussion with my husband and peers. Many of my friends who are alternative medicine doctors all over the country have persuaded my family that vaccination is not the right choice for my children right now.  A major problem is injected too many vaccines, too close together and too young.

I have listened to both sides and I definitely believe no matter what they should never be vaccinated under 2 when the immune system is just developing.  Doctors wanted to inject a sexually transmitted disease in order to vaccinate my daughter when she was a day old to protect when she becomes a teen!  What??  Ridiculous, and it’s all about $$$$$$$$$$$.

From the people’s chemist:

Parents who choose not to vaccinate their children and protect them with vaccine exemption forms are often chastised and stereotyped for putting their own kids at risk. But what is even stranger than this assault on individual freedom and informed choice, is that these concerned parents are attacked for putting vaccinated children at risk.

These attacks are based on the theory of “herd immunity.” This hypothesis was plucked out of an old college textbook. It states that the more people are immune to an infectious agent, the less likely an immune-compromised individual is to come in contact with it. In other words herd immunity serves as a human shield ““ a type of immunity ““ for “at-risk” individuals. But remember, it’s only a hypothesis.

When outbreaks arise among children, health officials are quick to state that it’s due to a breakdown in “˜herd immunity.”˜ Doctors parrot it too, without even looking at the research. They say it’s happening more often nationwide as states make it easier for parents to opt out of vaccinations.

Like argumentative apes, pro-vaccine parents and their physicians start pounding their chest in favor of such statements. They use them to attack anti-vaccine parents, accusing them of “putting vaccinated kids at risk due to a breakdown in herd immunity.”

This is fuzzy logic. And it’s borderline stupid.

After all, if vaccines truly worked, then why would vaccinated kids be at risk?

“¦Plus, the spread of infection isn’t limited to coming into contact with another person! You can get sick without ever seeing another individual. Therefore, herd immunity is nothing more than a silly catch-phrase used to scare and bully parents into vaccinating their kids. Don’t fall for it parents, keep using the vaccine exemption forms to legally avoid them.

What do you do with your leftover pumpkins?


When carving jack-o-lanterns, be sure to save the seeds since they are packed with Omega 3 fatty acids that build strong immunity, and enhance your skin and hair’s natural beauty.  They are a good source of protein which helps to stabilize blood sugar levels should you have overindulged in Halloween candy.  They also help with weight loss if you really overdid it this season.  High in the amino acid tryptophan, which converts into sleep-inducing melatonin, snack on pumpkin seeds to ensure you enjoy a great night’s sleep after all the Halloween festivities are over. Read on to learn how easy it is to make your own toasted pumpkin seeds. 

Cut up and Dye!!!!!

IMG_3977For quite some time I have been thinking about transforming my locks. However, because I have had short hair for the majority of my life,  a glass of red wine was needed to ease the transition. (or that’s the excuse I made this time!) It wasn’t the short hair I was afraid of, it was the scissors in an untrusted person’s hand!  Well, guess what I mustered up the courage to do today??

This one came from having an over abundance of root veggies that I needed to do something with, so feel free to modify all ingredients to match your tastes and what you have in the kitchen.

Farmers Market Haul


Every Saturday I go to my local farmers market to peruse the local organic produce from my favorite farmers who grow fresh, without pesticides and herbicides. (And who are down right fun to get to know.)  A few days ago, I posted about the benefits of fall foods, so check out my finds and see what I picked up!
