5.0 out of 5 stars Must read for all Docotors and Parents!
By Kimberly Warner on October 12, 2018
Dr. Suzanne Humphries deserves an award for bringing the load of vaccine record and history to a finely orchestrated; and lengthy, book.

The parent of 4 children, I had never questioned vaccines before 2 of our children had a severe reaction to their shots at a joint appointment in which my daughter received her Kindergarten shots and our son (then not yet 3) received the shots required between 18m-3years, which was the DTaP & Hep A.

Our son had immediate symptoms he wasn’t well but I was pregnant with our 4th child and thought he was just being a normal attention seeking kid. He kept complaining, “my legs.” And wouldn’t Assist when I carried him out and looked zoned out. When I put him down to walk himself he flopped and said he couldn’t and I assumed he was just babying it.
He slept for three days straight which I called Abbie worried and they said it was Normal and then began a zoned out period in which he also lost control of his bowels, wouldn’t talk, seemed confused when asked anything and began to wAil and whine at every response. At the same time our daughter began to have manic behavioral symptoms, everything touching her she was frantic, couldn’t explain her thoughts before loosing her point and becoming irrational and angry, lost control of her Bowels and began complaining of back and leg pain so much she’d wake in the night screaming it hurt.

Her reactions merited a few visits to the ER; one 4 days after the vaccine, in which each time they reasoned her symptoms away as a flu like symptom and didn’t think she had meningitis because she lacked some of the symptoms. I mentioned she had the MMR vaccine 4 days prior, so how could she have meningitis and they didn’t really answer me. It made me curious so upon a follow up the next morning my doctor didn’t really answer my question either, so I asked for some papers to take home to read on it and the shots, since Our son was still in lethargic/sick mode after his and she was very animated about his symptoms being normal. So much so it was overkill and I wasn’t incinerating his was abnormal, (he hadn’t lost his bowels or began any other behavior aside from
Sleeping and being generally quiet and zoned out yet at that point).

We began reading packet inserts online and I was appalled to see how many adverse reactions there could be. We decided to ask our doc again for information so we could make a rational choice seeing how our 4th son was to be born very soon ( he was born 14 days after their reaction), and one nurse said they had a nurse who dealt strictly with vaccine and medicine questions she’d send in to talk to me, but no one came. The next nurse I asked to remind them to get her looked confused like she had no clue who I was talking about. When my doc came in I asked her and she didn’t confirm there was any nurse and said she had papers I could have. When she came back she said the papers were from a book she forgot she loaned to another patient and hadn’t gotten back, but wasn’t able to tell me the name of it.

It was way to many weird situations for us not to thing there was something there. As each kid got worse visits became shorter and no one Brothered to suggest we test anything, they just said it was normal and it happens at the age our son was at. He has since been diagnosed with Autism.

Luckily for our newest son he has never been vaccinated and truly is healthy. He hasn’t had ear infections, respiratory issues like our other 3 children had. We read all the way through his first year, saying to ourselves, “ we’ll keep reading a little more then we can always get his vaccines next month after we know everything and can feel comfortable”

The more we read the more we had to read more and more, and time just flew by, the literature we read along the way deterring us from vaccinating each time. He is now a year and a half old and runs, jumps off things, says over 40 words and has no allergies.

We are happy with our decision and continue to learn as we are recovering our son from Autism with great success using diet, Dr Andy Cutlers Chelation Therapy Protocol and boosting his immune system so far and still weighing opinions for our daughter, who is still being looked at for issues that arose. So far she’s diagnosed with Emotional Disturbance Disorder, has a lot of set backs in her abilities in reading, so much so she’s in the lowest group now in school despite our nightly practice and teachers support. She has had several MRI’s, one of which we were refered to a neurosurgeon to correct nerve damage in her spine from the vaccine; although no one will admit it’s from the vaccine, not on paper anyways. It’s infuriating.

Parents should all be informed of their doctors education on vaccine ingredients, reactions, law and vaccine approval processes.
If they choose to vaccinate that is their choice, just like it is ours to no longer.
Free from bullying, free from judgement, free from ignorance.

Attached are images of some of the many books I’ve read that you may also find enjoyable. Emords book is extremely detailed, depressing in explaining specific laws and cases by which they were governed and very eloquent.
