About the Author

Please note that the following description is provided by the publisher/author of this title and presents the subjective opinions of the publisher/author, which may not be substantiated. The description does not express the views of Amazon.

The author/publisher writes: “Melanie's Marvelous Measles was written to educate children on the benefits of having measles and how you can heal from them naturally and successfully. Often today, we are being bombarded with messages from vested interests to fear all diseases in order for someone to sell some potion or vaccine, when, in fact, history shows that in industrialized countries, these diseases are quite benign and, according to natural health sources, beneficial to the body. Having raised three children vaccine-free and childhood disease-free, I have experienced many times when my children's vaccinated peers succumb to the childhood diseases they were vaccinated against. Surprisingly, there were times when my unvaccinated children were blamed for their peers' sickness. Something which is just not possible when they didn't have the diseases at all. Stephanie Messenger lives in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, and devotes her life to educating people about vaccine dangers and supporting families in their natural health choices. She has the support of many natural therapists and natural-minded doctors.”

My infant daughter went blind after contracting measles from an unvaccinated child, and yet there's no braille version of this wonderful book for me to give her someday to explain to her how awesome the disease that took her sight away is.

What a dirtbag move to steal the title of author Roald Dahl's book "George's Marvelous Medicine"-- Roald Dahl's daughter died of measles. This so-called author is just a leach on society, children, and the memory of Dahl's little girl.

I've been having a hard time finding a way to tell my children why they have to suffer through dangerous and potentially debilitating diseases that were almost eradicated by Vaccines. Thanks to Melanie's Marvelous Measles I now have an easy reader guide that makes me eldest feel less down about the fact he's been crippled from Polio. Apparently telling him"Your grandfather had it in the 1920's and he lived to be 52 thanks to a weakened heart" just hasn't cheered him like it should.
Chloe, my 3-year was worried about the horrible scaring that came along with her case of Rubella. "Don't worry dear," I told her, "Remember Melanie's Marvelous Measles? Melanie is more beautiful for her scars. If you kids don't get sick, how else are we going to go on to build a glorious master race?" Unfortunately the Encephalitis she suffered from the high fever the measles caused means I have to repeat this over and over but the little girl on the cover gives her hope, and really, what else can we give our children?
In fact, Melanie's Marvelous Measles has inspired me to seek out and expose them to a variety of diseases that previously only effected poor, underdeveloped countries.
Think of the unique life experience the bubonic plague could bring? To bad Small Pox is so hard to get, those horrifying blemishes they leave would be a real conversation starter for myself and my horribly misshapen children. If you think about it, really, I'm giving my white, middle-class, suburban offspring a great chance to understand equality in a way my college professor assured me Carl Marx would appreciate. After all, what unites the proletariat like sickness? It's also a great chance to teach them how fun poverty can be. Just think of all the unique, money saving techniques we can devise so we don't have to contract Dengue Fever in a 4-star hotel.

Format: Paperback
I can only presume that the author was born after the successful vaccination programme made people complacent about the dangers of measles. I was not so lucky. In the epidemic of my childhood I was nearly blinded, and still have scars on my eyeballs. I was the lucky member of the family; my sister died from complications. Measles kills children. This book is irresponsible and misleading at best. At worst it could lead to the death of a child.
Edit to add in the light of the current UK measles epidemic.
It is so sad to see that the loss in herd immunity due to opinions like this have lead to the return of a disease we thought to be nearly eradicated. Since last November, 1 in 5 infants who have caught the disease as they were too young to be vaccinated, have had to be hospitalised. This is not a benign disease that we should be encouraging children to catch.
