Nourishing Body, Mind and Spirit

Given that the general public doesn’t accept that vaccines can injure, I decided to start a list of vaccine injuries (many of them written by parents). For simplicity, I’ve tried to classify each story into only one vaccine injury category (although many could be classified under several vaccine injury categories).

This is only the very tip of the iceberg.  In addition to these, I have heard accounts of many more from friends and family. If you have a vaccine injury story, please share your story and/or a link to your blog so that I can add your story here. How many stories do we need to hear to start to believe the truth?

What strikes me as I’ve started to list these stories is how the vaccines have affected the brains of our children (death, brain damage, loss of consciousness, strokes, autism), in addition to increasing the suspectibility to infections. These stories provide a sad, vivid and harsh context for Dr. Blaydock’s scientific review, “The Dangers of Excessive Vaccination during Brain Development”. Not included in the list below is all of the many, many children who suffer with eczema, asthma, allergies, the risk of anaphylaxis, ear infections, ADHD, etc. They are not included in this list because the link is not as obvious to parents (it’s hard to tell if our children would not have had asthma or allergies if they had not received any vaccinations, especially given that children start receiving vaccinations at such a young age, at birth or two months old), but there are several scientific studies that have shown the link between vaccinations and these diseases. I have no doubt that my son is one of those whose asthma, allergies and anaphylaxis risk increased because of the vaccinations that he received. This is in addition to his obvious negative reactions to the MMR vaccination (despite the fact that we delayed until he was over three years old).

An excerpt from Dr. Tenpenny’s new book, Vaccine Wars:

“A fact that cannot be debated, however, is that we have a national epidemic of sick children…  We have come to accept asthma, allergies, eczema, chronic ear infections, and learning difficulties as ‘normal’ childhood conditions.  In our zeal to eradicate infectious disease, it appears we have traded the usual mild diseases in childhood, such as chickenpox, mumps and measles, for a lifetime of poor health and drugs. We have exchanged temporary illnesses for pervasive life-long diseases, disorders, dysfunctions and disabilities. A chronic illness held in check by medication is not health. The well-being of children and a community must be gauged by more than high vaccination rates and low infection rates caused by a specific, short list of pathogens.”

Or, as Dr. Mercola puts it, “Today, half of all U.S. children are chronically sick with asthma, allergies, learning disabilities and other illnesses such as autism and epilepsy. That’s 32 million U.S. children who are sick all the time, every day”.

And a recent articles states that, “One in six U.S. children now has a developmental disability such as autism, learning disorders or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), according to new research from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention”.

Children who are most susceptible to vaccine damage are those children with compromised immune systems. In addition, if your family has a history of autoimmune disorders or are poor methylators (e.g., Alzheimer’s, depression), your child is at a greater risk for vaccine injury. More about this here.

***I encourage you to search the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). To date (as of March 6, 2012) the VAERS website has 387,333 vaccine reactions that have been reported.  The actual number of adverse reactions will be much greater than this number. I have not summarized any of the information in the VAERS system. You can also search the National Vaccine Information Centre’s (NVIC) International Memorial for Vaccine Victims’ website, which lists 161 vaccine reactions to date.

Since the creation of the Vaccine Compensation Injury Program (VCIP) in 1988 (the same year mercury was added to most childhood vaccines), the program has paid  $2,429,787,664.52  in compensation to neurologically injured children as of 2012. (Source: HRSA Vaccine Compensation Statistics).

Read over 1,200 vaccine injury stories submitted by parents at the “Following Vaccinations” website here.

[Note: Please let me know if any links are no longer active, so I can keep this list up-to-date.]

Vaccine injury: Death

The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) lists 4804 vaccine reactions that have resulted in an individuals’ death.

Vaccines and sudden infant death syndrome

Vaccine injury: Brain and nerve damage

  • A scientific study published in Pediatrics 1998 found a causal relationship between the measles vaccine and permanent brain damage or death.
  • The study reviewed the claims to the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program between 1970 and 1993. They found a total of 48 children, ages 10 to 49 months, who developed acute encephalopathy (i.e., brain injury) after receiving measles vaccine. Within this group, 8 children died, and the remainder had mental regression and retardation, chronic seizures, motor and sensory deficits, and movement disorders.
  • A list of several scientific studies linking vaccines with neurological disorders, including brain swelling here.
     
  • Albert, Andrew and Marco’s story – Marco’s recorded clinical symptoms, which had appeared after the Sabin polio vaccination and correlated through the pediatrician to the anti polio vaccine, were as follows: ocular nystagmus, tremors and speech defects.  He died at the age of 6.
  •  The day following their vaccination, Albert and Andrew’s health deteriorated, and they were eventually diagnosed with “Metachromatic Leukodystrophy Type” (a disease related to the nervous system). Andrew died shortly thereafter.
  • Dallas’ story – My oldest son, Dallas was 14 months old when he developed a neurological tic and eye problems, related to vaccines. After taking him to dozens of doctors I got no diagnoses. All the neurologist told me they had never seen this before. He is 29 years old and still has this tic and very bad eyesight and severe headaches.
  • Julia’s story – 12 months old – MMR-V and Hepatitis B – unconscious for 10 days, was diagnosed with encephalitis. Severe temporal sclerosis over the right side of her brain. More areas of “less” severe injury in both frontal lobes of her brain. When she left, she was severely left sided hemiplegic, was aspirating food unless thickened, was unable to sit up or roll over, was nonverbal, and screamed and cried 22 out of 24 hours a day.

  • Eric’s story – 6 months old – DPT vaccine – within a few days started having up to 80 seizures a day. At 20 years old, he is severely disabled.
  • “…A dear friend would take back her personal decision to vaccinate in a heartbeat if it could bring her son back to her. As a healthy and energetic toddler of nearly two years old who was walking and running, he was vaccinated for MMR and within 24 hours had begun stumbling and falling over. Within a week he was unable to move and was confined to a wheelchair. He died prematurely as a young teenager. His mother is firm and unmoveable in her belief that it was the vaccine that caused the damage.” – Source (see What a Gem’s comment)

Vaccine injury: Seizures / Epilepsy

A list of scientific studies documenting the link between vaccines and seizures and convulsions here.

Vaccine injury: Encephalitis cries

  • Keelen’s story – one year old vaccination – Pediarix (a combination shot containing 5 vaccines: Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis, Polio, and Hepatitis B), Hib, and Pneumococcal – encephalitis cries (cries due to brain swelling) – was never the same again (constant pain, inconsolable, head banging)

Vaccine injury: Encephalopathy

  • Nichole’s Recovery - “Nichole was born on September 7, 2006 and at four months old, I took her to the health clinic to get her vaccinations, my whole life turned upside down. Nichole had acute reactions to the DTP vaccine. The DPT vaccine has been linked to brain damage, neurological damage, sudden infant death syndrome, and death. Nichole reactions 30 mins. of receiving the DPT vaccine were: she became lethargic, she was drooling excessively, and her whole body started shaking in my arms, which I found out later, Nichole was having seizures…. Her diagnosis include encephalopathy of unknown etiology with microcephaly, cortical visual impairment, GERD, global delay, spastic tera paresis, and failure to thrive with g-tube placement. Nichole’s seizures have continued to be problematic and difficult to control.”

Vaccine injury: Autism Spectrum Disorder

1 in 100 vaccinated children are diagnosed with autism

Only 1 in 10,000 children in an unvaccinated Amish population in northeastern Ohio is diagnosed with autism.

Scientific research linking vaccinations with autism spectrum disorder here.

A scientific paper “Theoretical aspects of autism: causes — a review” states that “Documented causes of autism include genetic mutations and/or deletions, viral infections, and encephalitis [brain damage] following vaccination [emphasis added]. Therefore, autism is the result of genetic defects and/or inflammation of the brain.” Read the abstract to Ratajczak’s paper here and a CBS news article about the paper here.

Read over 1,000 vaccine injury stories submitted by parents at the “Following Vaccinations” website here. Most of the adverse reactions following vaccinations reported by parents on this website is autism spectrum disorder.

Dr. Robert Mendelsohn’s book, How to Raise a Healthy Child, states that he has observed Hodgkin disease develop after the MMR vaccine.

  • Alexis’ story –  21 days after receiving the DTP shot, she  came down with the following symptoms:  lethargy; fever; loss of appetite; excessive sleeping. Shortly after MMR shot, she developed vaccine-induced Hodgkin’s Disease. Alexis died when she was 17 years old.

Vaccine injury: Juvenile Diabetes

Another chronic autoimmune disorder that is on the increase in multiple vaccine recipients is juvenile type 1 diabetes. In New Zealand, there was a 60% increase in juvenile diabetes following a massive hepatitis B vaccination program for newborns. In Finland the incidence of juvenile diabetes increased 147% in children under five after the introduction of three new vaccines for children in the late 1970s. Then, in the late 1980s, addition of a live MMR vaccine and an experimental vaccine (Hib) resulted in another 62% increase in the incidence of juvenile diabetes in children 3 months or older who received the new multiple vaccines (source).

Vaccine injury: Increase of infections

  • Cathy’s daughter’s story – double ear infection, bronchitis
  • Grayson’s story – 12 month vaccinations – “Grayson reacted to his 12 month vaccinations for an entire month, non-stop.  Doctors really had the gall to tell me that each of these incidents was unrelated to one another and/or the vaccinations.  He was tested for diseases such as EBV, Lyme, arthritis and even leukemia.  I’m sorry, but 4 live viruses should never have been injected into my baby in one sitting and I have since learned that he probably never handled his vaccinations well, because as I look back on pictures, I see one of his eyes turned in slightly, his lip not quite in line symmetrically with the other side and as we progressed through his vaccination schedule, his personality changed.  He changed.”
  • Theo – five months old – (a friend’s son) developed pneumonia and an ear infection after receiving the pneumococcal vaccine.

Vaccine injury:  Severe Eczema, Flesh-eating infection, Small pox

  • Vaccine injury photos showing severe eczema, flesh-eating infection, small pox lesions (warning: graphic photos)

Vaccine Injury: Night terrors

Vaccine Injury: Eczema

  • Several stories of children who developed eczema after vaccinations.
  • 5 1/2 month old baby – developed eczema after Prevnar 13 vaccination.

Vaccine Injury: Asthma

When researchers in New Zealand compared the rates of asthma in children that did not receive multiple vaccinations to rates in children receiving multiple vaccinations, those children who did not receive the vaccines did not present with asthma; whereas 23% of children receiving multiple vaccines had to have asthma consultations and 30% had consultations for other allergic illnesses (source).

  • A child with Hyper IgE syndrome “became sick at 2 months of age, which is immediately after his first whooping cough vaccine.  I can’t prove that was a cause, but I strongly suspect it exasperated his problems.  We gave him a whooping cough booster two years ago, and 24 hours later he became unbelievably sick.  His asthma was out of control, he could not get out of bed and his skin flared all over.  It took a lot of careful homeopathy to get him through that.  If it weren’t for the homeopathy, he would have been in the hospital.”

Flu Vaccine injury: Guillain–Barré Syndrome

  • Posts linking vaccinations to Guillain-Barre Syndrome.
  • I personally know of at least two adults who developed Guillain-Barre Syndrome after a flu vaccination (one of them had received the H1N1 vaccine).

Chicken Pox Vaccine Injury: Shingles 

  • Research has revealed high rates of shingles in Americans since the government’s 1995 recommendation that children receive the chicken pox vaccine.

  • Vaccine Awareness Network has a lot more very detailed information about Gardasil vaccination reactions here.
  • Cori’s story - video

Bedridden and Heart Inflammation

Brain damage

Early Menopause

Paralysis

German Measles Vaccine Injury: Arthritis

HEPATITIS B VACCINE INJURIES

  • Scientific studies that document the hazards of the Hepatitis B vaccine, including vision loss, hearing loss and various ailments.
  • Eight stories, with reactions that include chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, bedridden, wheel-chair bound, mononucleosis
  • “”The FDA also received over 2,400 adverse event reports for hepatitis-B vaccine in children in that same time frame, culminating in death, hospitalization, or prolonged disability. Add the reports for adults and the number swells to 27,000 serious reactions to the vaccine. With all camps in this debate in agreement that ten percent or fewer of adverse events ever get reported, this means that the vaccine may kill or disable thousands more than the disease itself.” Read full article here.

Dehabilitating pain

Fibromyalgia

Failure to thrive and prone to infections

  • “I am the mother of a vaccine-injured child. My daughter is 17, so she is soon to be a vaccine-injured adult.For the last 17 years I have watched my daughter’s health evaporate as if into thin air. As an infant, she was slow to gain weight and was diagnosed with “failure-to-thrive.” She was intolerant of milk, had mysterious rashes and “fevers of unknown origin.” She was very prone to ear infections and had two sets of tubes placed in her ears.” Read her entire open letter here.

Multiple Sclerosis

Requires 24 hour care long-term

Tetanus Vaccine Injury: Chronic Fatigue  Syndrome

Pneumococcal Vaccine Injuries

Anthrax Vaccine

  • Major Sonnie Bates’ story – He noticed that dozens were extremely ill following the anthrax vaccine. Autoimmune disorders, but all had some common link. He approached his commander and said that he would refuse the vaccine. The military threatened him with a court martial and 5 years in prison. He refused to take the vaccine and made headlines around the world and appeared on 60 minutes.  Anthrax vaccine has disabled and killed thousands and is the direct result of Gulf War Syndrome.

Compensation payouts

  • Vaccine manufacturers have paid out nearly $2 billion in damages to parents in the US. In all, around 2,000 parents have received compensation payments that average $850,000. Sadly, since the Vaccine Injury Compensation Payment (VICP) have not awarded settlements to any parents of children with autism because they refuse to recognize any link between vaccinations and autism (Source: New England Journal of Medicine, 2007; 357: 1275-9).

To report reactions:

In Canada…

In the US…

  • You can report a vaccine reaction to the US Government Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).
  • You can report a vaccine reaction to the US National Vaccine Information Center NVIC. You can also search the NVIC Vaccine Reaction Database. NVIC is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1982 by parents of vaccine-injured children.

Comments on: "Stories of vaccine-injured children" (40)

  1. Wow I just don’t know if I can read those all at once. My baby Luke, now 19 months, had all shots up to 6 months. ( I think I’ve told you before). Then I started reading your blog and some other things and I decided not to continue. I’m now pregnant with my second and I’m going to need to decide what to do again. Its so hard ng raised conventionally and being taught that vaccines are good and necessary to think the other way. My midwife who is also a naturopath gave me a bunch of reading, so I must read and decide what’s best myself. I just am in shock still after almost a year that no one is even adressing these problems- like government studies? It’s not ok to poison children. They are precious.

    Hi Cassie: It’s depressing, isn’t it? I know that there are so many more and this is just the tip of the iceberg….

    I agree that it’s hard when the conventional wisdom is that vaccinations are not only safe, but helpful. So great that you are doing reading and that you have have a midwife who is also a naturopath! Listen to your mother’s intuition on this one too.

  3. Thank you for including our Eden’s story. I hate that she is a statistic, but thankful that our mistake has lead me to become extremely informed and outspoken on this topic in hopes that other children will not be harmed by vaccines.

    Tamara: Thanks for sharing Eden’s story with us all and also for being so outspoken on this topic. I’ve learned a lot from all of the information about vaccines your blog as well. I encourage everyone to read this post from your blog: http://moralescrew.blogspot.com/2010/08/vaccine-reaction_20.html

    Hi,
    I am thinking about starting sequential homeopathy for my son who is 2.5 and autistic. Can you please tell me who your homeopath is and how to contact him/her?
    Thanks

    I emailed Abhi with the contact information of my homeopath. If others would like to find a Doctor of Medical Heilkunst, you can find one here: http://www.homeopathy.com/college-practitioners/268/doctors-of-medical-heilkunst

  7. Thank you for putting this together. I cant read them, I find them so saddening. I know, personally, too many families effected by vaccines. I met the young woman dx’d with adult onset autism, I’ve see the results. The chronic GI problems, the head banging, the self destructive behavior of these vax injured children. And I am appalled. When does it stop? Thanks again for being a voice. May I link to your blog from my own?

    Hi Maryann: Thanks for your comment — I agree, it is so sad… Yes, please add a link to my blog. Take good care.

    For the others, Maryann is referring to Stephanie’s story of adult onset autism at her blog: http://matthewspuzzle.blogspot.com/2009/07/stephanie-arnold-on-her-vaccine-injury.html

  9. Hi,

    First, thanks for the link back to my site. Second, I myself have been injured by vaccines back when I was a baby.
    My mom, as (I imagine) did lots of other moms, consented to the vaccinations because the doctors told her it was necessary. (Calif. state law?)

  12. I just stumbled upon this site. My son was vaccine injured recently. We don’t know what the outcome will be as we are still in the beginning stages of our journey (or should I say nightmare). We are working with a naturopath in hopes that our son will recover.

  13. spirityoga said:

    Hi Kristen: So sorry to hear about your son’s recent vaccine injury. I think it’s great that you are working with a naturopath who is using homeopathy. We are using Heilkunst homeopathy and have been finding it very helpful, and I’ve read that many other parents have helped recover their children with sequential homeopathy (Heilkunst, CEASE, etc.) and biomedical techniques. I wish you well on your journey. I know that it’s not an easy one, but I do feel that there is a lot of reason to feel hopeful.

    Take good care,
    Janice

  14. I met a vax injured child about 10 years ago. She was epileptic and severely brain damaged. The case was won.
    Right before it was time to vaccinate my first born, I remembered that child. Thank goodness!! I have been researching ever since. The pediatrician was tolerant of my decision, but reminded me of the pertussis outbreak in CA.
    While researching, it is so depressing to hear just how angry people get at the unvaccinated. I’ve been jumped on already by close friends and a friend of one. They cannot be reasoned with, in the name of science, herd immunity, and the greater good. I would never chance my child’s life for anothers. Sorry. They are just
    lucky they survived the roulette.
    Thank you for this site. I’m so very sorry for
    those suffering. Anecdotal evidence is real evidence when it proves itself again and again.

  15. The whole pertussis thing is such hogwash. It is maddening how they use that as a scare-tactic for parents to vaccinate. There is so much more to the story in regards to this disease.

    Oh my God ,, i am in tears for my son who is now 29 yrs old.. he was affected by these vaccines i know and torched i say in the emergency room when i ttook him in at 8 mos old.. they tested him for everything under Gods heaven and diagnosed him with asthma.. my son was healthy till he took these DPT immunizations.. he did poorly in school and to this very day is the most unhappiest individual you will ever meet.. He is in such a depressed state. and i cry for him ..He has no work history because he cannot hold any job.. he has no education and says or calls himself dumb…

  20. spirityoga said:

    Linda: So sorry to hear about your son. Thank you for being courageous and sharing his story. If you have the resources, I really believe that sequential homeopathy (like Heilkunst homeopathy) can help. Or a good naturopath. Let me know if I can help in any way…

  21. Please I dont know where else to go. If you or anyone has any ideas as to what we should do email me @ sahm@roadrunner.com please.. her story is on facebook.com/helpingana we have no idea what is wrong with her. and others are starting to think it is from vaccines…. please help this 4 year old. this is the only thing the doctors are not and will not and have not tested for is vaccine injury

  22. spirityoga said:

    Hi Bridget: It’s hard to say from your description on your FB page whether it is related to a vaccine injury. Did your daughter’s illness seem to coincide with a recent vaccination?

    Your doctors probably can’t and won’t test for a vaccine injury (I’m not sure if there is such a test). Most doctors will not agree that anything is related to vaccines.

    I feel that sequential homeopathy can help (like Heilkunst homeopathy), if you can find a practitioner in your area. Or, many will do distance sessions over the phone and can send you remedies. It can be a bit pricey (I know that money is tight for your family), but if you can somehow make it work, I think it would be helpful.

    If you have any other questions, please let me know. I hope that you can find something that will help your daughter and will find the answers that you are looking for.

    Take good care,
    Janice

  23. Link to vaccinating mothers in Africa against parasites leads to doubling of eczema/asthma incidence:

    http://www.wellcome.ac.uk/News/2011/Features/WTVM053327.htm

    Link to study article that finds delaying DPT vaccine decreases incidence of asthma:

    http://www.medscape.org/viewarticle/572891

    This article also discusses how vaccines encourage a TH2 immune response which is the slanting of an immune system prone to allergy/asthma.

    I vaccinated my son up until he was 10 months old – he probably had as many vaccines at that point that I had had by 10 years of age, maybe more. I wish I would have not done that or at the very least delayed and not stacked the vaccines.

    Most doctors don’t even know what the ingredients are in the vaccine (what the suspensions are made of… derived from things like dairy, peanuts….). It’s amazing to me that we can read what is in a box of cereal that we put into our mouths, but are not given that option when it comes to what goes directly into our children’s blood streams.

    Of course no one wants to watch their child suffer through a disease, especially when we are pumped full of fear that it can be deadly… but why are vaccinations not prefaced with the same dire warnings?

    I hate to be a conspiracy theorist – but big pharma is well… big, pervasive, penetrative, powerful…

    It’s a tough call – in an ideal world each child/person would have a personalized vaccination suggestion schedule based on an in depth understanding of their bodies and appropriately timed to allow their systems to adjust. And for some people the recommendation could potentially be – “…well, given what we know about your body – mumps for you could be a good thing so let’s not vaccinate.” But alas it is not so – just as we raise our foods in factory farms – we raise ourselves in factory lives. No thought, just step up and get your injection.

  24. Hi Denise: Thanks for sharing your thoughts and experiences. I completely agree!

  25. Thank you for the efforts here to warn others! http://www.SavingSavannah.org

  26. [...] Stories of vaccine-injured children [...]

  27. I completely understand what it is like to have a child with a vaccine injury. My oldest son got the first MMR shot when he was around three. Only four days later he started screaming and beating his head on the wall and biting himself. I took him to three different doctors and they all told my that my fears about the shot were unfounded and that my son was fine. I was beyond frustrated. I started working with him myself and was able to bring back some of who he was before the shot. Every one around me, even those who are close to me, tell me that he has autism. I don’t believe that he does. I am certain that he has a brain injury as a result of the MMR shot. I have recently discovered doterra essential oils and I am going to try using frankincense oil to see if I can get his brain to wake up and heal itself. That is one of the same oils given to the Christ Child. My prayers go out to all of you who are going through the same problem or worse. My youngest has adhd and I use a blend of oils on him and he is a normal clam and happy child with them. I am hopeful for similar results with my oldest. I recommend them to anyone with problems.

  28. spirityoga said:

    Hi Vera: Thanks for sharing your story. We are also using doTERRA essential oils to help our son and our whole family! I even have a blog about our experiences with doTERRA oils here: http://www.miracleoils.ca/p/doterra-essential-oils-in-our-home.html

    Many blessings,

  29. In 1995 while we were living in New Zealand my daughter then ages 13, my son ages 11 and myself aged 40 were given a course of 3 Hep B Injections. My daughter became very ill and slept for a couple of months and was in constant pain. she was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and CFS the following year and still has it now. My son has an intelectual impairment with behavioural problems, his behaviour became extreme and he ended up being medicated 24 hours a day on Ritalen and Prozac during the day and Mogadon at night. My health had been excellent up until then and I developed Arthritis, it started in my fingers and I have recently found at that I have no cartilage left in the joints in my hands. I have Erosive Arthritis and Calcium has destroyed the Cartilage in my hands. I recently had a Genetic DNA test done on my Saliva and I have NO Genetic predisposition for Arthritis ! none of my relatives have Arthritis.

    Hi Jan: Thanks for sharing your heartbreaking story. I wish your family didn’t have to go through what you are now living. I do feel the sharing stories like yours helps others to learn the truth. I have found that sequential homeopathy (Heilkunst) helped to reverse the effects of vaccinations for my own son…

  31. Thank you, our story is even more complex. We are now led to believe that my daughter has Lyme disease as well and has had it for at least 25 years ! My children have been damaged by vaccinations, mercury fillings and years of antibiotics. I have fought really hard to get them as well as possible, learning Kineaseology (muscle testing), I use Homeopathy, nutrition, vitamins, flower essences and I even make up my own herbal capsules. I have tried basically every alternate method of trying to make my children well that I could find which is why they are virtualy medication free but we are not finished yet !

  32. spirityoga said:

    Hi Jan: That’s wonderful that you are doing so many great things for your children!!! I also use muscle testing!

  33. I have not heard of Hielkunst Homeopathy before how is it different to regular homeopathy ? Another turning point for our family was seeing a Dr Doris Rapp on a talk show 20 years ago, I purchased her book (Is this Your Child) and it was a god send ! I have continued to use the things that she recommended ie sodium Cromalglycate, Calcium Carbonate, Sodium Bicarb, Antihistamines, Digestive Enzymes plus nutritional support. Plus epsom salts in the bath. Plus anything else I could think of lol.

  34. spirityoga said:

    Hi Jan: I wrote a blog post comparing different approaches to homeopathy here: http://crystalchild.wordpress.com/2012/05/20/homeopathy/

    Sounds like you are doing great things for yourself and your children! :-)

  35. After reflection and finally remembering the holiday 25 years ago when my children and my now ex husband were all bitten by ticks I have just realised that was when my daughter’s anxiety and panic attacks appeared, and my son went from being placid to a child with extreme behaviour problems I blame. I believe that their immune systems were already compromised by vaccinations and this was the start but by no means the end of the damage done to them. I believe the Hep B Vaccines caused the Lyme to flair up and have affected and continue to affect our lives, every day is a struggle. Where can i find a Homeopath in my area Western Australia who does Sequential Homeopathy ? I am determined to improve my children’s lives. Interestingly I believe that my then husband remains well even after the tick bite perhaps because he had less vaccines as a child and his immune system is stronger!

  36. spirityoga said:

    Hi Jan: You can find a Heilkunst practitioner in the link below: http://www.homeopathy.com/college-practitioners/267/practitioners-of-heilkunst.

    There’s no one in Australia practicing, but there is someone in New Zealand, and all of them can do distance consultations. Most of my consultations were through distance. They will mail you the remedies required. A friend one mine in Australia was receiving Heilkunst treatment from someone in Canada, I believe.

    I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions. I really believe that my son is doing so well overall as a result of this treatment.

  37. […] Layla was vaccine injured. She is not the only child to have a vaccine injury… vaccine injuries are real. […]

  38. Hi! I was wondering how you all used muscle testing? I was reading that a few of you use that! I am a physical therapist and am very interested on how it is being used in a holistic manner, as I am also into essential oils, prayer, and well HOLISTIC health. Thank you and God Bless!

  39. Hi Regia:

    There’s a few videos online on how to muscle test.

    Hope that helps!
