Safe Vaccines?

Do you follow current recommendations regarding vaccinations for your child? If so, you could be putting your child in danger. Vaccinations contain dangerous chemicals and preservatives that have been suspected of causing various health issues including digestive disorders, allergies, rashes, and autism.

On June 4th at the Capital Grounds in Washington D.C., actors Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy led a march and rally with national advocacy organizations for health to eliminate toxic substances and green our vaccines. Watch the video here. Over 8,500 parents marched, picketed, and chanted the words "too many too soon". Jim Carrey reported that the amount of vaccinations required by doctors has gone from 10 to 36. He made certain to state that they are not against all vaccines, but that the amount of vaccinations required are simply too many. Requests are being made that CDC and AAP reduce the amount of required vaccinations and clean up the ingredients included in these drugs.

Vaccines contain (among others) the following ingredients: mercury, aluminum antifreeze, aborted human fetus cells, formaldehyde, monkey kidney cells, chick embryos, and fetal bovine serum. Numerous scientific studies exist which link vaccines to autism, and the subject has become one of the most controversial in medical and health circles.

Autism is becoming more and more prevalent, and is more common than childhood cancer. It is estimated that two to six children in every 1000 will be diagnosed with the disorder. Parents feel overwelmed and trapped with little options available from traditional medical treatments other than pharmaceutical intervention. TACA (Talk About Curing Autism) helps families realize the potential to help their children with combinations between biomedical, alternative, and dietary therapies. Some of the problems families have had success in treating include the following: lack of sleep or severe sleep disturbances; extreme digestive disorders (often including alternating diarrhea and constipation); rare parasites, viruses, yeast overgrowth or bacteria; extreme allergies to foods or substances in the environment; unexplained rashes; sallow complexions; dark eye circles; and behaviors that ebb and flow in patterns that may coincide with physical symptoms.

It is important to locate a health care practitioner who is willing to go the distance in an alternative type program which embraces methods not commonly used by allopathic or traditional doctors. Traditional doctors tend to treat the symptoms and prescribe medications which mask the problem and can make symptoms more acute. Be wary of any medical professional who puts symptoms aside and claims that these are just part of the syndrome. Finding a health care practitioner whom you trust and is willing to get to the heart of the issues and find out what exactly is causing your child's health care issues takes some doing, but is well worth the results for your child.

To get the answers you need, conduct research, interview practitioners, and read books on the subject. Here is some recommended reading:
