"Hello, I have a 3 month of little girl who has just been diagnosed with epilepsy. She had 1 seizure before her 2 month birthday then she went to get pediatrician for her 2 month visit where she received ALL of her vaccines. My boyfriend is pro vaccine and I am not. We have had many conversations about this topic. I had decided I would not vaccinate her and when I got to that appointment I chocked. I was terrified either way ... and with the nudge from her pediatrician and my boyfriend I agreed to have her vaccinated.
One week after that I noticed my daughter having an occasional seizure and a week after that it was happening multiple times a day. I brought her to the ER where she was admitted and diagnosed with epilepsy.
She is now on 2 different medications and is scheduled for an MRI. I hate the fact that she's on medication. She's only 3 months young! In my heart I feel her seizures were provoked by those vaccines. I need your help please! I'm wondering if you have heard of this happening...?
The most important question. How can I treat her seizures without prescription drugs? I don't want to give her any more toxic chemicals. I want to heal her naturally. Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated! I am located in RI. If you can refer me to a naturopathic doctor anywhere. I am willing to travel anywhere to get her off these meds and seizure free. Thank you in advance."
"What I fight for: In August 2008, my son got his 2 month vaccines. A week later he was sick. He was dying. He had histiocytosis. We didn't make the connection. Every time he got better and we started vaccinating again, he relapsed.
At 2-1/2 years old we were told he had to have a bone marrow transplant. Without it, he would die. We were also told he could never get another vaccine. But because "histio" is rare, he doesn't qualify for a medical exemption.
And neither do his siblings, even though there may be a genetic link. He turns 7 this year. He's alive, and has not relapses since vaccines were stopped. I am TERRIFIED that my right to protect my son from suffering like that again, from possible death, will be taken away. That we will be forced to inject him with viruses that will trigger an immune response that won't turn off, causing the immature white cells to form tumors in his chest, lungs, liver and lesions on his skin. And that this time, there won't be a way to save him."
This isn't about whether kids should or shouldn't be vaccinated. This is about taking away my right to protect my child, and my sons right to pursue life without fear. What's YOUR reason to fight?"
