for mommys that are against Vaxing.....just wondering.

Usually I see that mommys that are against vaxing are also against vitamins and anything "artificial" such as any type of medications....so my question is, what are you going to do if your child truly does get sick?? with an infection, virus, bacterial thing or whatever...not necessarily diseases that have to do with vaxing...I usually just see a correlation. Im just curious by the way.

  • I know several non-vaxing families IRL (we're one of them) and not a single one of them is against all conventional medicine. We are all against the overuse of antibiotics (which is proven to be unhealthy and dangerous in the long-run as the consequences of abx-resistant bacteria becomes more and more of an issue) but my 6yo was on abx once, and my 4 yo was once as well. For stitches, broken bones, or other serious injury, we certainly will use the ER. We tend to use conventional medicine as a last resort - we try to prevent through healthy living, and if there is an illness or injury that can be treated at home then we treat it at home. If it is something that we do not have the means or skill to handle, we would go to the hospital, or at least make an appt with our PCP. If my child had cancer, we may pursue alternative treatments, but they would definitely be under the care of an oncologist!!

  • I do vaccinate, but I think many moms who oppose traditional medicine believe they are making their children's immune systems stronger. Therefor they don't think their kids will get seriously ill.

  • There are many moms that are anti vax but still give their children vitamens. They just make sure that the vitamins are made from whole foods. And when you say medications i'm assuming you mean conventional medicine. Many ppl who are anti vax have alternative methods.

  • I'm not against traditional/conventional medicine, but I am against the "ingredients" in vaccinations, i.e. aborted fetuses (if you don't believe me, check out the CDC website for ingredients) and lots of the other ingredients. I am 100% against abortions, so using a vaccination that was developed from an aborted fetus is IMO supporting abortion and/or saying it's OK to abort. Nope. Not me.
