Open letter to all of my kid’s Doctors, Neurologist and Specialists.
To Nathan’s early Neurologists, Remember when you caught Nathan’s glance and you heard his speech? With each check up you saw his progress, from words to phrases to full sentences. You agreed that Nathan was reaching speech milestones. Remember when you said that you wouldn’t worry about learning disabilities/autism, even if he was premature and has cerebral palsy (limited ability to move his legs) because he had good eye-contact and his writing/scribbling on paper was impressive at age 2? …everything changed when Nathan regressed deep into autism.
To the Public Health Doctor who was scheduled to give Amor her 4th-month shots, You noticed Amor’s hypertonic muscles and recommended to delay her vaccines. Thank you! I wish I had the sense back then, to ask what was your intuition telling you. I’m sure I would have picked-up good information. But I was a first-time Mom, just doing what everyone else was doing and never questioning the system.
To the Doctor who gave Nathan his first flu shot when he was about 1 1/2years old, You gave it around it Measles & Rubella shot! I want you to know that it was the winter after those shots that we observed Nathan’s spelling game interrupted by a seizure-like jerk followed by 10 seconds of lost attention. In time those jerks became more frequent and the lost attention became longer and longer. Regression continued slowly. In a year or two, all that remained was lost attention and zero interactive attention span.
To the Paediatricians who gave Nathan several vaccines on top of what was legally required, Remember when I asked you if Nathan’s prematurity and cerebral palsy had any bearing and you all said “No”. I trusted your experience and agreed to all the added vaccines.
Though I was vaguely aware that there was a #VaccineAutismLink, I was quite confident that Nathan would not get hit. By that time (age 2 1/2), Nathan was speaking in full, clear sentences and even had genius spelling recognition. But that year of continuous vaccinations coincided with loss of Nathan’s ability to speak sentences, he lost meaningful words, be became echolalic (parrots words), he even regressed further and even lost echolalia, he began to string unrelated words into meaningless phrases. He lost his ability to sing the words and the melody of nursery rhymes. His beautiful nursery rhymes turned into wordless chanting. In about 2 years of regression, Nathan became severely autistic. I gave Nathan every vaccine you recommended even those that which were created for military use in adults combatting in foreign lands. Why did they transform those into childhood vaccinations and why did you miss out on giving me that important information?
To the Developmental Neurologist whom I asked if I should be concerned that Nathan did not sweat at all, you said it had no bearing. But sweat is one of the body’s most important detox pathways? Surely if one pathway was blocked, how could he detox all those vaccines and the compounded burden post vaccination? That important information could have made me think twice about Nathan not being a suitable candidate for vaccinations.
To the well-known Autism Doctor whom I asked if Nathan’s chronic constipation had any bearing on his autism, you said it was not related. Ask any autism parent and you will have a survey of kids with all sorts of digestion complications. Vaccines, antibiotics and other medications affect the gut. The gut is what nourishes the body and brain of a developing baby. I was unable to address Nathan’s chronic constipation for years trusting your expertise. Many parents who start addressing digestive issues early, through diet and other interventions, have reversed many symptoms of autism. Autism is not only in the brain. The brain is not a separate unit but is supported by the whole body, especially the gut that processes the food for nourishment.
Some parents don’t see #RegressiveAutism and are made to believe their kids were born autistic. But they are not reminded that their babies were vaccinated at birth with Hep B vaccine. Not to mention the medley of vaccine that follow. Hepatitis B attacks the liver. A baby’s liver is not fully functional at birth (that’s why some babies suffer from jaundice), yet they are injected with vaccines that their liver needs to detox. This detox pathway then becomes hampered in a very critical age when baby’s brains develops the fastest…or in that case, isn’t given the opportunity to develop.
#HepB is also the most useless vaccine. The disease is only passed through blood/needles so babies have very very very low risk of getting it unless their parents have Hepatitis B. Yet many countries require it at birth! A better option would be to screen parents and give the vaccine to only the children who need it. HepB should not be mandated. Too many babies are suffering from liver disease post vaccine.
To all the Doctors,
I did not write this to put blame on you. I know you were doing your best with what was at that time, the “best” information in your hands. I simply want to add observation to your wealth of observations. I know you get to see your clients while they are with Pediatrics, it would be good to follow-up through they years, especially those who observed regressive autism. Maybe knowing their stories will help you come up with decisions that will better help your future children patients.
Like many parents in autism communities, I have heard of many similar stories. My friend’s children were vaccinated, got sick then lost eye-contact immediately after. There are also many like my son Nathan, who reached his milestones, but slowly regressed after a series of vaccines. Babies who were once vibrant and healthy became immuno-compromised, coinciding with regression to autism. Don’t dismiss the testimonies of these parents, you are co-responsible for the health and even socio-economic implications of generations to come. More children are regressing into autism at epidemic proportions. Societies at present already have challenges supporting its aging population, what more of the working population itself, become predominantly special-needs?
To all the parents, trust your intuition! Ask your Doctors if vaccines are absolutely necessary. BCG, for example only offers 40% protection. All my vaccinated kids still got diagnosed (or misdiagnosed, and that’s a whole different story) with primary complex (childhood form of tuberculosis). The flu shot only gives you 50% protection. You can get flu shot A and still end up sick in bed with the flu virus B. Why are we being made to buy something that does not guarantee full protection?
Some countries, like the U.S. has a “vaccine court” which uses taxpayer’s money (not the vaccine developer’s) to persons who belong to the minute populate that vaccines GUARANTEE to injure in order to protect the rest of the population. Your country might not have that system. Yet it mandates vaccination and screws you if you end up sick, with what is written in the vaccine drug description after the lines “in extremely rare cases causes….”
If you really want to vaccinate your kids, wait until they are walking, talking and at the age when there is an increase likelihood of being in public places like schooling age. I still say kids are much healthier unvaccinated. I hear parents proudly saying their kids are on schedule with vaccination yet they have frequent colds and are always sick.
Even if you don’t have a child with autism…If your child has allergies, asthma, eczema or ADHD, when no body else in the family line has it, or when your child’s condition is so much worse compared to the parent’s mild symptoms, consider looking into the vaccine link of those diseases to help you find permanent solutions and bring your kids to better health.
I am just one story, but you will find many parents with children who regressed into autism.
