The Vaccine Free Child
The Modern Parent is a highly educated parent when it comes to vaccines. Every parent must truly understand why she does not vaccinate and to that end, every parent – and you – would do well to own at least three books on the topic as well as to review some of the key arguments as to why natural immunity is superior to vaccination. So let’s get started…
Natural Immunity vs Vaccination
When a child acquires an infection naturally, the body mounts a full TH1 cell-mediated immune response, as well as a TH2 humoral immune response. This fully activated immune response will create lifelong or near lifelong immunity: if exposed again the child will not go through the intense infection process. By contrast, the vaccination process uses toxic adjuvants to aggressively overstimulate the TH2 humoral immune response, bypassing the critical TH1 cell-mediated immune response. This causes antibodies to be created against the injected antigens, but does not actually confer immunity – hence the need for booster shots. Vaccine “effectiveness” is thus measured in terms of antibody production, rather than true immunity. A child can still acquire or manifest the very disease s/he is vaccinated against, and this does in fact often happen during disease outbreaks. Not only this, but the vaccination process itself may exhaust and disturb immune capacity, and lead to chronic health issues – seizures, autoimmune conditions, autism, allergies, asthma, lifelong damage and death. The longer term and cumulative risks of vaccines are in truth not examined or considered by those who make or test them, by public health authorities or by legislators seeking mandatory vaccination laws. They fail to ask a most basic and crucial scientific question: namely, whether mass vaccination causes or contributes to today’s surging chronic childhood illness rates.
Dr. Richard Moskowitz, MD and Dr. Thomas Cowan, MD, give an in-depth look into the differences between natural immunity and vaccination in their books Vaccines: A Reappraisal and Vaccines, Autoimmunity, and the Changing Nature of Childhood Illness, respectively. True immunity – whereby the body will not go through the major infection process again – can only occur when BOTH the TH1 and TH2 immune response have been fully activated. This only happens when the infection process begins through normal routes of entry (e.g., mucous membranes as opposed to injection). This natural immunity process resolves the infection with a full immune response; whereas with vaccination, rather than preventing disease, the disease is actually prevented from ever being resolved. This is why “outbreaks” happen in vaccinated individuals, and have nothing to do with the unvaccinated or “herd immunity.” The acute response that happens when an infection happens naturally – coughing, rash, fever, etc. – is an indication that the ENTIRE immune system is activated to expel the viruses or bacteria causing the infection, while simultaneously creating cellular memory that will know what to do when exposed again – what we call “immunity.” We must also note that the infection process during childhood primes the immune system for future encounters with OTHER infections, and may even reduce incidence of disease processes in later life, as indicated by rates of naturally acquired measles and the later occurrence of cancer.
Death from infections declined dramatically prior to the introduction of most vaccines due to better sanitation (plumbing and waste removal), refrigeration to prevent food spoilage, the use of powerful natural and holistic healing remedies, the ending of child labor and the overall improvement of living, which allowed for robust health. For example, death from measles in the USA declined 99.96% before the vaccine was ever introduced. A healthy immune system has the ability to go through the infection process without incident in the vast majority of cases; and typically if there are complications, these are due to nutrient deficiencies or other treatment or susceptibility issues, not a lack of toxic vaccines. Understanding of the history of vaccination and how vaccines never actually saved us from infections – and if anything, have made our situation worse – can be found in Dr. Suzanne Humphries, MD seminal work, Dissolving Illusions: Disease, Vaccines, and the Forgotten History.
Dr. Andrew Wakefield gives a short overview of natural immunity vs vaccination. This is absolutely worth watching:
And, here is great overview about the Measles and 1) why to not panic, and 2) how infections can be resolved through natural immunity. This overview video by Dr. Thompson, ND and Dr. Camp, ND can serve as a way to think about any infection your child may be presented with and how natural immunity works.
And here is a general overview of what to do when your vaccine free child gets sick…
Vaccinated vs Unvaccinated: Chronic Illness vs Vibrant Health
Parents in the Stop Mandatory Vaccination Facebook Group who have vaccinated and unvaccinated children say the same thing: their vaccine free children reach milestones sooner, get sick less often, get over illness sooner, have WAY fewer chronic health issues and are generally much healthier than their vaccinated siblings. In May 2017 a pilot study discovered similar findings when parents of 666 homeschooled children were interviewed about the health status of their children, 261 of whom were vaccine free. Dozens and dozens of parents in the Stop Mandatory Vaccination group gave testimony on their healthy vaccine free and the big differences found in their vaccinated children, which is published on the Stop Mandatory Vaccination website. One parent wrote:
Daughter is 8 years old- no allergies, no skin issues, no asthma, no pneumonia, no flu, no stomach issues, never had diarrhea, no delays, no ADHD, no sensory issues, no behavior issues, spoke in complete sentences fully articulating and enunciating words at 2 1/2 years old. My granddaughter is 5, fully vaccinated, and has all the above. It’s the difference between night and day.
What’s interesting to note here is that the CDC continues to refuse to do a proper long range health outcomes study of vaccinated vs unvaccinated children (and if they did, they’d probably hide the true results considering their past behavior – see the documentary Vaxxed). The CDC will not do a prospective study or a retrospective study (e.g., review the health status of older children who are vaccinated and unvaccinated). Dr. Andrew Wakefield discusses the CDC’s refusal to do such a study and gives us his analysis of vaccinated and unvaccinated with a conclusion that the vaccine free children are extremely healthy. Take a look…
Once this website has numerous contributions and some of those contributions are by parents who discuss their vaccinated vs unvaccinated children this section will be updated with a link to that category.
Homeoprophylaxis: The Vaccine Alternative
Homeopathy – a highly effective yet safe energetic medicine – was successfully used to both treat and stop infectious disease in the 1800s and early 1900s, until it was deliberately dismantled to make way for the Pharmaceutical industry and their toxic drugs and vaccines. Homeoprophylaxis is a homeopathic protocol that educates the immune system against a specific infection so that when the child is exposed to it the immune system will have a better understanding on how to more appropriately react and neutralize a specific infection process. During the 19th century, homeopathy flourished, and death rates from cholera, typhoid, and scarlet fever in homeopathic hospitals were between 1/2 and 1/8 of those in conventional (allopathic) hospitals. Yet, when the American Medical Association was founded in 1847, a clause was placed in its code of ethics stating that any member who consulted with a homeopath would be kicked out of the membership. Doctors who did were indeed banished from the newly formed, powerful organization.
One of the most essential reasons to receive homeoprophylaxis is to boost and activate the immune system, and improve the immunity through a safe delivery mechanism. Hp has also been recognized to lessen vaccine injury and adverse reactions to vaccination. No side effects. No needles. No toxins. No vaccine-injury or death.

The Importance of Fever
Prior to the 1960s, fever was used to successfully treat and cure people of cancer. That changed though when antibiotics, fever reducers and chemo therapy became the norm and so using fever as a treatment protocol was outlawed in 1962 by the FDA (see Dr. Cowan’s book, pages 17-22). A fever is a very important immune response AND “treatment” of the body when faced with an infection and generally speaking, should not be artificially lowered, especially with drugs. If anything, do the happy dance when your child gets a fever because it means your child’s immune system is working, as intended. The fever activates the body’s natural killer cells to kill bacteria and viruses and create antibodies. Without a fever, the immune system doesn’t know to take the steps to kill the pathogens. Artificially lowering a fever is the suppression of the proper function of the immune system. Dr. Judith Thompson, ND and Dr. Eli Camp, ND discuss the importance of fever in their book, The Unvaccinated Child: A Treatment Guide for Parents and Caregivers, which is an essential resource that every parent will want to own.
The Beginner’s Guide to Natural Living
Children who are well nourished and living without toxic chemicals have the best opportunity of clearing infections quickly and with the least amount of complications and living a holistic, natural lifestyle is the absolute best way to ensure the vibrant health of a child.
Author Larry Cook, former publisher of two popular natural living magazines and creator of Stop Mandatory Vaccination, has finally encapsulated his in-depth knowledge on natural living in book form. This book presents clear guidance on everything from what to eat—and what NOT to eat—to how to choose quality natural products, which supplements to use on a regular basis, how to choose a natural doctor, why to go to a holistic dentist, and why and how to detoxify your body.
It should also inspire you to implement a confidence building exercise routine. And just as important as the how is the why—the book provides a thought-provoking exposé of the pervasive, toxic manipulation of our food supply as well as an exploration of the realities of conventional medicine, which uses a disease management and drug therapy model while simultaneously suppressing the use of effective, all-natural treatment modalities. To help you further your education in all of these matters, a thorough list of book suggestions is provided throughout the book and collected in the Bibliography.
Larry’s detailed explanations and generous advice (right down to shopping lists, recipes and meal plans) make this guide an absolute gem if you want to know where to begin to confidently change your lifestyle. Buy it today, follow his trustworthy guidance, and begin reaping the many rewards of living the natural lifestyle!
A vaccine exemption is what allows a child to attend school without being vaccinated. The three types of vaccine exemptions are philosophical, religious and medical. In simple terms, a philosophical or religious exemption requires the filling out of some forms and an exemption is granted. On the other hand, a medical exemption requires a medical doctor to state that the child is too medically fragile to receive vaccines but unfortunately, the vast majority of medical doctors are unwilling to issue a medical exemption, for any reason. Prior to 2015, two states – Mississippi and West Virginia – were the only states where only medical exemptions are allowed to opt out of vaccines. That changed in 2015 when Governor Brown signed into law SB 277 which removed all exemptions except medical in California. Since that time over 100 legislative bills are introduced every year in dozens of states attempting to remove religious and/or philosophical exemptions as the liability-free vaccine industry continues its push to force vaccinate every man, woman and child on the planet. Click over to the National Vaccine Information Center State Vaccine Requirements to review the exemption options you have in your state.
Review Vaccine Inserts
Most parents have never looked at a vaccine manufacturer insert that lists all of the details about the vaccine, including adverse reactions. Although the pro-vaccine apologists often say these are just for “legal reasons,” the fact remains that injuries are actually reported on these inserts and it behooves every parent to review a few of them. They can often be many, many pages long. Pay close attention to the above image (a partial screenshot from a four page document) and notice the “Psychiatric disorder” category. It’s a really interesting one because screaming – often very high pitched and a terror filled scream at that – is due to massive brain swelling and the absolute EXTREME PAIN in the brain. So, is it actually accurate to call that a “psychiatric” issue?! Also note “convulsions” and the many other disorders that this vaccine can cause. And this is just ONE VACCINATION!
From a safety testing point of view, it is important to note that vaccines are not tested to see if there is an accumulative toxicity (e.g., does getting vaccines every two months add an accumulative toxic load to the body that in turn causes systemic health problems or injury) nor does vaccine safety testing use true saline placebo controls – the gold standard of all other pharmaceutical drug testing. Vaccine manufacturers are not liable for the death and injury their products cause, which is truly frightening. Every parent must understand the inherent risk of vaccinating and the risks are many.

How To Say “No Vaccines” To Your Pediatrician
Well baby visits to a pediatrician is for the primary purpose of scaring parents into vaccinating their child. Pediatricians can receive significant financial bonuses when a majority of their patients are fully vaccinated on schedule and so they will say anything to scare a parent into vaccinating – a common one is that your child will die without vaccines. Although this is a lie, it is not always easy for a parent to refute doctors who lie in order to force compliance, usually with hostile and aggressive energy to boot.
The best way to handle bully energy – from anyone – is to use the “broken record technique.” This technique is when you say the same thing over and over and over again, unmoved by whatever new argument someone brings up. YOUR ARGUMENT is enough for YOUR decision. You do not need to address other arguments. This is a critical understanding when dealing with hostile energy: you be the broken record. The first thing though is that you need an argument to use. Here are two to consider:
- You have read the manufacturer vaccine inserts, you have reviewed potential adverse reactions, and you have decided that you will not risk your child’s current health status with the potential of harm, damage or death as stated on the vaccine inserts. Of course, you do actually need to review some vaccine inserts – it is very important you do this. So when the pediatrician then says “Well, that risk is very low,” you say, “It is not low enough for my child – I will not take the risk of damaging my child.” And then, you be the broken record when the pediatrician brings up the many other reasons to vaccinate (child will die, must protect the herd, etc., etc.). It is at this point that you must stand firm and be the BROKEN RECORD: “I will not risk my child’s life with a vaccine that can cause that kind of damage to children.”
- You have talked with numerous parents who have vaccine injured, vaccine damaged and/or vaccine killed children and you are unwilling to risk a similar fate with your child. In this instance, although reviewing vaccine injury and death stories is a very good idea, what you really want to do is communicate with parents who have experienced vaccine injury and death. The reason is because then instead of saying you “read it online” you can truly say, and convincingly say, you “talked with” these parents. You can find these parents in the Stop Mandatory Vaccination Facebook Group and you can also join our community here and begin the discussion (or find one that is already active). The pediatrician will give all kinds of reasons to vaccinate, and you will state over and over something along the lines of: “I have talked to too many parents who witnessed their children be damaged or killed by vaccination to allow my child to get vaccines.” Or any variation of that. Being a broken record and not deviating into other arguments is the way to handle this – you must be resolute and you must believe that the argument you are delivering is plenty argument for your decision, and you will not be moved.
VERY IMPORTANT: Do not give your pediatrician If/Then statements. “If you can prove to me vaccines are safe, I will consider it.” These weaken your argument and make it sound like you are unsure of your decision. In fact, you are not there to argue with your pediatrician about your decision. You are simply letting your pediatrician know your decision, you have a reason, and you will not be moved by anything the pediatrician says to you. Of course, once you have made it clear that you will not be allowing toxic vaccines to be injected into your child the pediatrician may “fire” you, and that’s okay.
Find A Vaccine Free Doctor
The primary purpose of a pediatrician is to ensure that all children are vaccinated according to the CDC schedule. Furthermore, insurance providers incentivize pediatricians to follow the CDC vaccine schedule by paying large bonuses – provided a high percentage of the patients are fully vaccinated on the CDC timeline. Since the bonus is given based on a percentage, most pediatricians simply boot parents out of their practice if the parents refuse to vaccinate their children. We suspect there will come a time when insurance companies will flat out refuse to issue insurance unless everyone is fully vaccinated according to the CDC schedule. In the meantime, here are a few types of medical professionals you can seek out for the care of your child:
- General Practice Medical Doctor (MD)
- Integrative Medical Doctor (MD)
- Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO)
- Naturopathic Doctor (ND)
- Licensed Acupuncturist (LAc)
- Chiropractor (DC)
- Homeopath (unlicensed)
How To Find A Vaccine Free DoctorIf you are on an insurance plan, are low income and your pediatrician fired you, you might be able to see an general medicine MD or DO within your insurance plan. That would be your first action step. Many alternative doctors are cash only, but not all. With that in mind, here are some ways to find a vaccine free doctor:
1) Do a Google search using doctor modality plus city or state: “naturopathic doctor Seattle,” “integrative medical doctor Seattle,” “homeopath Iowa,” “chiropractor Eugene” and so on. Not all doctors are vaccine free, so you will want to look at their websites and see what they say and narrow your list to then call and ask questions. Chiropractors, Acupuncturists and Homeopaths are not allowed to give vaccinations, but in some states, Naturopathic Doctors are allowed to. With this in mind, NDs who graduated from NCNM are more likely to not support vaccination, so take a look at their bio to see the schooling.

2) Look at the association websites for alternative doctors. You might google “integrative medical doctor association” or “acupuncturist association Oregon” or “naturopathic association Texas” for example, and virtually all associations have member directories. Members can often be located by zip code search.
3) You can ask for a referral in the Stop Mandatory Vaccination Facebook Group. Keep in mind that many people are concerned about the safety and well being of doctors, so you may want to ask to be private messaged with referrals.
4) Here are some website resources to review that offer vaccine free or vaccine friendly doctor lists:
Vaccines are destroying our children at an unprecedented rate (Autism alone is 1 in 36) and it behooves us to find educated doctors who will not bully or otherwise advocate that parents must vaccinate their children.
Vaccine Injury Recovery
If you have a vaccine injured child – from mild to severe – there is hope for improvement, partial recovery and/or even full recovery. However, you will not find the help you need in the conventional medical setting – especially the same setting the caused the vaccine injury in the first place. Rather, you will need to seek out alternative medical providers and alternative medical treatments if you want your child to have hope for healing and recovery. No matter when the injury occurred have confidence that you will see improvement when you begin this type of treatment, often called “biomedical treatment.” A restricted diet is always essential when working to heal a vaccine injured child and must not be ignored. For brain injury, mild hyperbaric oxygen treatment is very effective and highly recommended. Since this is a really big topic to get going with, go to The Vaccine Injury, Treatment and Resources Start Guide to understand what to do to help your child heal from vaccine injury. That guide gives a step-by-step action plan with everything you need to get started on the healing journey.

The Modern Parent is an Educated Parent
The modern parent is an educated parent. The quick overview on this page is intended to be your starting point with some of the most salient points that you need to learn as to why natural immunity is superior to vaccination. Of all the arguments available as to why to raise a vaccine free child, the most important one of all is truly understanding how natural immunity works, and how vaccination works, on the immune system. Dr. Moskowitz and Dr. Cowan give excellent overviews that every parent can understand on this topic. This is foundational to all other arguments, including vaccine safety arguments and all the other ones out there (and there are plenty). Once you, as a parent, understands why your child is at MUCH GREATER RISK from vaccination with a corresponding diminished ability to handle infections of any kind, it becomes instantly obvious why the vaccine free lifestyle is the absolute safest and healthiest way to raise a child. And then you will become an activist and fight tooth and nail to preserve your right to keep toxic injections out of your child so you can raise a healthy, vibrant, milestone crushing child.
