When it comes to childhood immunizations, the approach with the least long term risk to your child’s health is refusing the shots in the first place. It’s a better strategy to avoid the myriad of vaccine related health problems from the start rather than scrambling for an effective vaccine detox to unwind the immune system damage later.
You can always get vaccinated, but undoing vaccine damage is a challenging process. Procrastination is a virtue when it comes to shots!
Science is not on your side if you choose to vaccinate, contrary to the drone of government officials, the media, misinformed school officials, and even pediatricians, some of whom are fearful of reprisal if they speak out with a differing opinion on the subject.
There has never been a single, double blind, placebo controlled study assessing the long-term risks of childhood vaccinations. There’s plenty of subjective “research” conducted by the vaccine makers themselves that are printed in glossy medical journals which glowingly speak of the “efficacy” and “safety” of shots.
Science for sale. This is the “research” that conventional doctors are using in their gamble with your child’s health. Health is not something to be gambled with. “The first wealth is health” said Ralph Waldo Emerson, and one that must be ferociously guarded in our toxic world.
Since placebo controlled studies are considered the gold standard in scientific research and none exist with regard to childhood immunizations, how can those who choose not to vaccinate be labeled “science deniers”?
The Health of Vaxed vs Unvaxed Children
The true science deniers are the officials at the CDC who refuse to objectively study the health of vaxed vs unvaxed children using the best scientific methods possible (aka, placebo controlled studies).
United States Congressman Bill Posey R-FL has heroically called out the CDC out on this bias before. The chorus of influential voices grows stronger with each passing year, but will it be too late for to save your children’s health?
The most compelling data we have at the present time is a comprehensive survey conducted on over 10,000 completely unvaccinated children, comparing their health with that of their vaccinated peers. The survey results showed that while not vaccinating is no guarantee of health for your child, the odds are certainly in your favor if you choose to forgo shots. Unvaccinated children suffer far fewer health problems both in the short and long term than vaccinated children.
What if you didn’t know any of this when your baby was born? What if you found out that shots are harmful far too late, observing health problems develop after a round of shots, or worse, that your baby has started to regress developmentally?
Emergency Vaccine Detox if a Child Regresses after Vaccination
Loss of eye contact, unresponsiveness to sounds or other stimuli, and the sudden inability to walk are common observations by parents of young children after a round of vaccinations. They are so common, in fact, that more than 1 in 50 children is currently on the autistic spectrum. This is up from one in every 300 children when my first child was born in 1998. In the 1980s, about 1 in every 10,000 children was autistic. Scientific projections are that 1 in every 2 boys will be on the spectrum by 2030 at the current rate of growth.
What should you do if you decide to vaccinate and your child suddenly starts to regress?
Developmental pediatrician Dr. Mary Megson of the University of Virginia has answers for you based on her extensive clinical experience treating autistic children for over 25 years.
Dr. Megson has developed a framework for treating autism based on the piece of the puzzle she has discovered clinically – blocked Vitamin A pathways in the brain.
Cod Liver Oil as Treatment for Autism
Dr. Megson considers herself to be in the trenches. She sees two new autistic children every day in her practice with afternoons reserved for follow-up appointments.
As a developmental pediatrician, she thought that logically speaking, autistic children must be suffering from some sort of blocked pathway in the brain because their development occurred in fits and starts interspersed with periods of regression and plateaus.. Normal children, on the other hand, develop more evenly without regression or long plateaus. To her, this pointed to blocked pathways in the brain.
Springboarding off earlier research by Ron Evans which found that language centers in the brain were dependent on Vitamin A pathways, Dr. Megson examined the diets of the autistic children in her practice. She noted that while these children were getting plenty of Vitamin A, it was the synthetic version found in fortified foods and multi-vitamins. It was not the natural form of Vitamin A found in liver, kidney, milkfat (small amounts), and cod liver oil.
Note also that the beta carotene in vegetables, while natural, is not true Vitamin A either. It is a precursor of Vitamin A that must be converted by the body, and this conversion is very inefficient or does not occur at all for many people, particularly young children whose digestion is still developing.
Since cod liver oil contains the most concentrated form of natural Vitamin A of any food as well as the special form of Vitamin A named 14 hydroxy retro-retinol, which turns on memory T-cells, this is what Dr. Megson decided to give her patients.
Would cod liver oil prove effective as a first line vaccine detox? Here’s what Dr. Megson discovered.
First Autistic Patient Using Cod Liver Oil
Dr. Megson’s first patient on cod liver oil was a 5th grade boy who was nonverbal. This young autistic child also exhibited symptoms of flapping and pacing. After 3 weeks on small doses of cod liver oil based on the US RDA (recommended daily allowance), Dr. Megson arrived in the examination room delighted to find a now verbal child! He was telling his mother to leave him alone as he could get up on the table by himself.
Dr. Megson subsequently conducted a placebo controlled study with 40 autistic children (29 boys and 9 girls) ages 2-12 years old. The study was 6 months in duration. The children were given either a placebo oil or cod liver oil on a daily basis in the following amounts:
- 2-5 years old: 1/2 tsp per day (2,500 IU Vitamin A/day)
- 5-10 years old: 3/4 tsp per day (3,750 IU Vitamin A/day)
- 10-12 years old: 1 tsp per day (5,000 IU Vitamin A/day)
The results indicated improvements in eye contact, overall health, reduction in asthma symptoms, and better language skills (with receptive language skills preceding expressive language ability) for those children who received the cod liver oil.
Emergency Vaccine Detox Using Cod Liver Oil
Possibly the most exciting aspect of Dr. Megson’s clinical experience with autistic children is with babies. Specifically, those young children who start to regress quickly after a round of shots. Dr. Megson describes what she observed in her own words:
I will tell you, I’ve treated several infants now who went in and got their vaccines who lost eye contact, stopped turning to sounds, became unresponsive with .85 cc, less than 1/5 of a teaspoon [cod liver oil] once per day either rubbed on the belly or in the bottle for 2-3 days and all of it comes back (1).
Clearly, autistic symptoms presenting immediately after a round of shots (particularly the MMR) is not “coincidental” as claimed by conventional medicine. It is indicative of blocked pathways in the brain and the need for a vaccine detox. When regressive autistic symptoms present, speed of treatment is critical to recovery. And, cod liver oil can play a key role in the recovery process.
What Type of Cod Liver Oil to Use as Vaccine Detox?
It is very important not to use just any old brand of cod liver oil when your child is exhibiting symptoms of regressive autism. Many of the brands of cod liver oil on the market now contain synthetic Vitamin A. Dr. Megson specifically warns that this form of the vitamin does not help in resolving symptoms.
The three following brands are confirmed by the Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF) and/or Radiant Life to contain only natural Vitamin A.

My parents use Green Pasture Products Blue Ice fermented cod liver oil, and my family uses Dropi Icelandic Extra Virgin cod liver oil.
Dr. Megson dosed at only 1/5 tsp for 2-3 days before noting that eye contact and responsiveness in the child returned.
- Green Pasture Products: Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil (plain)
- Dropi: Icelandic Extra Virgin, Raw Cod Liver Oil
- NutraPro International: Virgin cod liver oil
Watching a child start to slip away after one or more shots would be a terrifying experience for a parent. If you choose to vaccinate, having a bottle of cod liver oil containing natural Vitamin A on hand is a smart strategy. Giving your child small doses of cod liver oil several days before the shots as a preventative would no doubt be a wise move too.
