I’m researching the Vaccine Question mostly for myself, but I may as well share my journey with you.
This is just an introduction. I’m spilling my thoughts before diving into serious research. I don’t know how many of these thoughts will survive when I’m through. I’ll write about what I find when I’m finished!
As a new mother, I have many important choices to make. Two choices scare me the most: parenting and vaccines. While I know it would’ve been better to have researched these issues long before those double lines appeared in the bathroom, I resisted.
Even now, I want to find some way out. I don’t want to answer these vital questions. I want to keep going in blissful ignorance. But, as the precious life within me grows, each kick reminds me time is running out. I can’t run from these issues any longer.
I have to make my decision.
I’ve already tackled the parenting question. It was very a long and painful journey. But now I feel I am finally ready to dive into the second: The Vaccine Question.
Why The Vaccine Question Matters to Me
My little sister and I had grand mal epilepsy as children. Mine were all worse than hers. I do not remember any of them because I was unconscious. I’d stop breathing completely until they were over. They lasted from when I was 3-8 years old.
Mom suspects that I may have been showing signs long before that first huge incident. I didn’t have any severe head injury or health issue. Grand mal epilepsy does not run in my family at all, not even small seizures or mental illnesses.
This wasn’t a mild case of seizures. Sometimes seizure issues show up for no reason. But grand mal epilepsy is a HUGE deal. It doesn’t happen lightly. It is a signal that something has gone very, VERY wrong.
But there was nothing wrong with me… except for vaccines.
Wondering if I have passed down my severe vaccine reaction to my child is more than I can bear. I have to know the truth! Other parents may be able to accept the vaccines with relative ease and ignorance, confident that their child will live normally and have nothing to be majorly concerned about. I can’t.
Also, there are other things about vaccines that concern me. The ingredients, the conspiracy theories, the use of human cells from aborted babies, the injuries and deaths… I have to get to the bottom of it.
Okay, I’ll Be Honest…
Honestly, I may be a little biased. I’ve pretty much made up my mind that I don’t want to vaccinate if at all possible. None of us do, I’m sure. It’s a necessary evil.
But that’s the catch–could it be possible not to vaccinate? Is there a relatively safe alternative or solution? The risks seem to carry deadly consequences either way.
What do I do? How am I going to avoid the guilt if my child is injured or possibly dies because of the choice that I made?
I’m so nervous about making this decision. God help me.
This is real. I’m writing this part before I’ve finished my research. At 28 weeks pregnant now, I still haven’t made a decision yet.
Vaccines: Fighting Evil with Evil?
Sickness is preventable. We know this because people have done it.
The Native Americans died mostly from the diseases brought by the Europeans, not from the Europeans themselves. While the Europeans had built up a natural immunity (at the cost of thousands of lives over the generations), the Native Americans had none. Why? The disease simply didn’t exist in their world.
The way the Native Americans lived was simply BETTER than the way Europeans lived. They had more sanitary habits and more natural lifestyles. Meanwhile, Europeans had been dumping refuse in the streets and living in over-crowded cities, leading to the Black Death.
Are you proud of modern medicine? Think it gives us longer, healthier lives? Well, you may want to sit down for this one: modern medicine can take only a very SMALL percentage of the credit. The real credit for our long, healthy lives goes to toilets.
Yes, toilets. You’re welcome.
Right now, you owe your toilet more thanks for protecting you from deadly diseases than vaccines EVER will.
Shifting the Blame
I believe strongly in finding the root cause of a problem and digging it up by the roots. Has anyone stopped to research WHY these various diseases exist, or what lifestyle changes could have prevented their existence in the first place?
Bottom line: Mother Nature knows what she’s doing. We’re being like rebellious teens–disobeying her and doing our own thing. Then, in order to deal with the mess we made, we still refuse to return to Mother Nature and make things right. Instead, we just dig our hole even deeper.
Example: cats are not designed to live in houses or eat dry food. Why do we need to torture them with vet visits? Because their needs are not getting met inside our houses. Nature did not give them the need for vet visits–we did! Mother Nature already has everything the cat needs–nutrition, immunity, exercise, medicine, shelter, etc.
If we wanted to irradicate the need for vet visits, for example, we’d return the cat back into the wild! It’s the most effective, safe, efficient solution.
And… we’ve all but killed Mother Nature as well. She’s sick too, unable to care for the lives that depend on her like she used to. But that’s another topic entirely.
There Is Always A Better Solution
Why am I defending Mother Nature so much?
Because I believe God made it. Bad stuff only happens because of sin. I believe God poured EVERY drop of love and care into each detail of his Creation. It was all made for us!
Each day, scientists uncover more and more of the benefits of pure Nature. When we let Nature have its way, it’s perfect and beautiful. It can even heal and restore from the effects of sin. Nature is so forgiving just like God is!
I believe there’s ALWAYS a natural solution to everything. Not because I believe in Nature, but because I believe in the power of God’s love.
Whether or not we have access to that answer is another matter entirely. Thus, vaccines.
I am afraid that while I may arrive at a solution, that solution may be far out of my reach. It may take the community to find the solution, not just one person. Vaccines then become both a “solution” and a prison.
This may be slightly off topic, but…
Do we really want to keep doing this over and over? Like Israel’s animal sacrifices day after day, year after year. Never solving the core issue. Generation after generation. Where does it end?
I want to create a better future for my kids! What heritage am I passing down to them? I want to give them a heritage of freedom, not slavery. Especially since the hand on the other side of that needle is government, power, and greed.
While vaccines themselves may be a wonderful solution, I fear that it has been corrupted into a harmful weapon in the hands of evil men who care nothing for me or my child. I may not necessarily have anything against vaccines? The problem just actually might be with the one who makes them.
So, those are my thoughts. I’ll get down to the research now.
Deep breath. Here goes nothing.
