Vaccines

“Why should or shouldn’t my child get vaccinations?”

  1. Don’t do anything just because you are told to.

    Be the parent! You decide what your child needs, based on their risk and particular situation.

  2. Don’t do anything based on FEAR.

    Don’t be scared into any particular plan of action

Auto-Immune Diseases or Chronic Inflamatory Diseases

(Lupus, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue)

We recommend the following lifestyle changes:

  • Exercise regularly, optimize your sleep and work to limit stress.
  • Drink reverse osmosis, carbon filtered water (1/2 oz per pound of body weight). Consider adding a chlorine and flouride filter as well.
  • Take omega-3 supplements. You may need anywhere from 2-10g daily.
  • Probiotics. Preferably use 5-20 Billion daily. Best sources are usually health food stores. Best to take a blend containing bifidus species.
  • Eat as organic and vegetarian as you can, unless you are specifically allergic to a food.
  • If you have amalgam fillings or possibly a dental abscess in your mouth, consider there may be benefit to having it properly addressed. Amalgam fillings contain 45-55% mercury. Why leave mercury in your mouth when the world is working to limit the use of this heavy, toxic metal in ALL areas?
