Note: We delayed Moses’ MMR vaccination until he was 3.5 years old and only did it when his system seemed strong enough to handle it. Despite waiting until he was older and despite the fact that he was in better health when he was vaccinated, we witnessed a marked decline in his health directly after his MMR vaccination. The original post follows below.
I discusssed here how we were starting down the road of partial vaccinations and Moses had his first MMR shot on September 9. Since that vaccination 7 weeks ago, Moses has not been able to sleep through the night (previously he was sleeping through the night), and has had three different bouts of high fevers, an ER visit, a strep throat diagnosis (accompanied with an antibiotics prescription), and thrush (which was the result of the antibiotics for the strep throat, and now he’s on an antifungal medication), and other various maladies.
We also noticed that he started getting a lot more prone to tantrums during the day and was a whole lot crankier and was also getting more night terrors* within the first month after the MMR. And, then things progressed to the point that brought us to our wits’ end (and we actually wondered if he was developing Asperger’s Syndrome).
Ah… it’s all coming together now.
I’m starting to put two and two together and attribute the change in behaviour to the MMR vaccination. So, I feel even more strongly to discontinuing with the rest of the vaccinations we were planning. I believe my husband is now also on board and the rest is history.
*Updates: I’ve since read other parents’ accounts of their children having night terrors after receiving the MMR vaccination. Of course, our experience is minor compared to others whose children died after their vaccination and others who developed autism after their MMR vaccination (stories of vaccine-injured children here). Read this post about which children are at a higher risk for developing autism.
I wrote a post here about my thoughts on night terrors resulting from vaccinations.
Heilkunst homeopathy helped to reverse the effects of the MMR vaccination (read more here).
