The Pure Baby - What Does That Mean? (PART TWO)

OUR SECOND BABY (pictured at left)

By the time of our second baby’s birth, I had finally educated myself somewhat regarding vaccinations.  I decided that he would not receive the Hepatitis B vaccination, at all.  We had a new pediatrician, and she agreed that the Hepatitis B vaccination was completely not necessary.  Additionally, our pediatrician agreed that our new baby would receive no more than one vaccination per month.  While she was very pro-vaccination, she was also very understanding of mommy concerns and was quite respectful of my choices.  I am so thankful for her!

 In the months following the birth of our second baby, I continued to explore the positives and negatives of vaccination.  Through this additional learning and through religious counsel, I realized that vaccination violated my religious beliefs.  This is the reason that, for our children, we hold religious exemptions to vaccination.  As I believe that God created my children, I must also believe that God created them with healthy immune systems that are designed to keep them healthy.  I believe that vaccination damages the immune systems that God has given to my children.  I have sadly seen this happen with our first child.  Therefore, we no longer allow our children to have their God-created bodies damaged by vaccines.

Our second baby continuously thrived!  He never contracted a childhood disease, with the exception of chicken pox.  (And is that really a disease?  I think not!)  He had no “behaviors”.  He was very happy and very social (which is also who he is today!).  He did have a slight language delay, and testing did show a bit of mercury toxicity (most likely from his vaccinations).  Amazingly, a few weeks of doctor-ordered chelation at age three years ended his language delay, bringing forth the chattering little boy we have today!


  1. This may sound like a dumb question but how did you come to have him tested in which mercury toxicity was found? I'm so happy you are doing what you know is right for your children!

  2. Hair testing from Doctor's Data http://www.doctorsdata.com/test_info.asp?id=1
    is recommended by Andy Cutler PhD of www.noamalgam.com .
    His books speak in great detail about this.
    DAN! (Derfeat Autism Now!) docs frequently use these hair tests to determine toxicity.
    My second son was hair tested by our DAN! doc, and that is how we got started.
