Tylenol and Vaccination

The vaccine rituals that exist in our society are very well inforced and I like to stir things up once in a while and suggest that we don’t automatically follow the protocols without first considering the whole picture.  

One of the recommendations around vaccination is to medicate your child – beginning at 8 weeks of age – with Tylenol before and after vaccination. I would suggest that you choose not to medicate your baby if you are planning to vaccinate so that you have a clear picture of what he/she is experiencing.  If they are having a reaction to the vaccine and you would like to use the support of  homeopathy it is very useful to be able to see the symptoms clearly.  It makes it much easier to prescribe the correct remedy if the symptoms are dynamic v.s suppressed through the use of a powerful drug such as Tylenol.   

I feel that Tylenol is used in a very casual manner for extremely young babies and it is time to start questioning the programmed way in which we give over the counter medication to our children. 

H1N1 Vaccination and Homeopathic Options

Really consider the way in which H1N1 has been promoted through the build up of immense fear over this past six months.  It is a brilliant marketing campaign to create fear so that you can feel relief when the vaccine appears and “saves” us.  

  What are the actual symptoms of this illness – they truly do not appear to be anything more than a cold – who exactly are the people who are dying and what was their level of health before they got H1N1?  These are questions you need to ask before you fill yourself with an untested vaccination – why are you really getting it?

Homeopathy can provide real support, to boost your immunity and provide you with the strength you need to meet anything that comes your way.  Pair this with chiropractic adjustments, excellent nutrition, rest and you will be in a good state to flow through this winter.  Find yourself health care practitioners that will provide you with support v.s drugs, practitioners that actually consider you and your body as an individual instead of one of the masses.  Work with people who know you and your family and are willing to take time and energy to meet your needs. 

Once you begin visibly taking steps that demonstrates you love your own body you will see and feel the change.  It is no longer necessary to react to every bit of fear mongering that goes on in the media – from programing us to believe we will get breast cancer to promoting the belief that everyone will die of the swine flu – do not indulge yourself in fear, it does not serve you .

Homeopathy and the Swine flu – What to do?

Homeopathic medicine has been treating the flu for hundreds of years.  There are many remedies that address the symptoms of the flu.  When you take a remedy to treat the flu it means that it will support your body in moving through the symptoms you are experiencing as quickly as possible. 

The best possible way to use homeopathy is to go to a homeopath, find out your consitutional remedy (the remedy that is most closely matched to your specific physical, mental and emotional state) and use it if and when you feel you are getting ill.  Once you know your constitutional remedy your homeopath will also know which remedies will work well acutely for you should you experience an illness.  In other words you have set yourself up with a strong support system to fall back on. 

This system of medicine is safe for pregnant women and children of all ages – including newborns.  This is a much more reasonable option then injecting women and children with the flu shot or the impending swine flu vaccine. 

Remember that just because you are exposed to a disease does NOT mean you will get it.  Have faith in your body and support it.  Make informed choices that feel right in your heart.

Homeopathy and Vaccination of Newborns

Homeopathic medicine is available to support your baby in place of vaccination. Educate yourself – it is worth it.  The children I see who have not been vaccinated are healthy, grounded and tend to move through illness quickly and easily.

The best approach to using homeopathy for newborn care is to consult with a homeopath that specializes in working with children.  The homeopath will take your child’s case and come up with their constitutional remedy. 

The Constitutional remedy is the remedy that matches them mentally, emotionally and physically. That may seem impossible to know at a young age but a skilled homeopath will assess a baby through observation and through understanding the details of the mother’s pregnancy, birth and postpartum.  Once a constitutional remedy has been established your groundwork is done.  The Constitutional remedy is the first one to use if:

  1. an acute illness such as whooping cough is going around
  2. you know your child has been exposed to an acute illness
  3. your child begins to experience the symptoms of an acute illness

An important thing to remember is that just because you are exposed to an illness does not mean you will get it.  Strengthening and supporting your body will assist you in having an amazing immune system.  One powerful way to do this is to use homeopathy acutely and constitutionally.  There are homeopathic remedies for every illness that children are vaccinated against.   There are also homeopathic remedies to support children working through a vaccine reaction. 

 Find a homeopath that has experience with acute prescribing and allow your child to develop the strength they were born with.  For more information on homeopathy and vaccination please visit my website or attend a vaccination lecture – www.pipermatin.com .  Lastly – it is NOT the law to vaccinate your child in Canada.  Every child is allowed to attend any daycare or school – public and private without being vaccinated.  You must sign a form and submit it to public health – beyond that there is no process for exemption.  It is our right in Canada to refuse vaccination.
