Open Letter to Doctors Who Reject Unvaccinated Patients

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist

doctors refuse unvaccinated patients

I was kicked out of my first pediatrician office in 1998. The Pediatrician in question was an old family friend, a neighbor of my high school sweetheart whose family I knew very well.

He was also a colleague of my Dad, a Geriatrician and Family Doctor at the same hospital in Dunedin, Florida.

This well-respected Pediatrician was very welcoming at first when I arrived for my initial office visit with our newborn son. Thankfully, my Mother-in-Law who is a nurse was with me. The alarm bells began going off in my head shortly after the examination started when I told him that my healthy, beautiful baby had been born at a birth center.

You could immediately see in his eyes the mental shutdown process begin as he proceeded to chastise me for my birthing decision and how women foolishly risk their own lives as well as the lives of their babies by forgoing a hospital birth.

When the time came for vaccination, though, that’s when things got ugly.

This important news just in from GlobalNewswire regarding the Disneyland measles outbreak:

Should the Recently Vaccinated be Quarantined to Prevent Outbreaks?

Health officials are blaming unvaccinated children for the recent measles outbreak that started at Disneyland. However, with no known status for over 90% of the cases, one blood test showing the patient’s measles was actually a reaction to the MMR vaccine, and only 9 cases confirmed as wild genotype B3 measlesanother likely source of the outbreak is a recently vaccinated individual, according to published science.20

Scientific evidence demonstrates that individuals vaccinated with live virus vaccines such as MMR (measles, mumps and rubella), rotavirus, chicken pox, shingles and influenza can shed the virus for many weeks or months afterwards and infect the vaccinated and unvaccinated alike.1,2 3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,19

Furthermore, vaccine recipients can carry diseases in the back of their throat and infect others while displaying no symptoms of disease.11,12,13

“Numerous scientific studies indicate that children who receive a live virus vaccination can shed the disease and infect others for weeks or even months afterwards. Thus, parents who vaccinate their children put others at risk,” explains Leslie Manookian, documentary filmmaker and activist. Manookian’s award winning documentary, The Greater Good, aims to open a dialog about vaccine safety.

Both unvaccinated and vaccinated individuals are at risk from exposure to those recently vaccinated. Read more…

Deworming the Gut Safely and Effectively

deworming the gut naturally

By Mandy Lee, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner

We have loved and cared for a number of foster children. Read about our incredible life here! The fun and rewarding part is that we have seen many of these children recover their health quickly based on diet.

However, there is a topic relating to children’s health that is not usually discussed and is even considered hush-hush in open circles. We talk about it openly in our home. And with knowledge comes responsibility.

With many of our foster children, we have experienced illnesses where the symptoms were caused by parasitic worms that required a thorough deworming in order to heal.

It makes complete sense that people (including medical doctors) don’t talk about worms living inside our bodies because it’s downright disgusting! However, it needs to be discussed more openly because we all get them!

In fact, my MD friends are finding worms and other parasites in more and more patients than ever before.

Why I Declined an Appearance on The Doctors TV Show

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.

~ Mahatma Gandhi

This is quite possibly the most difficult of the 1482 articles I’ve written on this blog to date since 2009.

I just got off the phone with the producer of the popular TV show The Doctors to decline an invitation to appear on an upcoming show. I received the invite in order to “fairly” represent the views of parents who choose not to vaccinate their children in light of the media frenzy surrounding the Disneyland measles outbreak.

This is the sixth interview request I’ve received in the past week on the Disneyland measles story. All but one was from a major national or international news or television network.  I declined them all with the exception of a request from a Northwestern University student who was writing a paper on the subject. I allowed him to quote me for the opposing viewpoint.

Why am I declining interview requests about a topic I am extremely passionate about?

Is Water Kefir as Beneficial as Milk Kefir?

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist

water kefir versus milk kefir_mini

My recent article comparing the probiotic potency and overall health benefits of milk kefir versus yogurt spawned a lot of emails to my inbox with questions about how water kefir fits into the mix.

After a bit of reflection on the subject, I came to the conclusion that the topic really deserved its own blog post, so here we go!

Which is really better, water kefir or milk kefir?  Or, are the benefits between the two basically the same?
