5 Ways to Prepare Your Child for Vaccination

I posted this in response to a question about things to do when you cannot protect your children from vaccination. These are potential things you can do to rule out or mitigate risk of injury and adverse reaction. To be clear: I do not ever advocate forced, routine vaccination on non-consenting persons.

As always: remember that this information is not medical advice and does not replace the advice of a paid professional.

  Ways to mitigate the risk of injury from infant/early childhood vaccines:

1) Consider a full genetic panel for your child to rule out congenital defects or other concerning polymorphisms such as COMT, VAL, MTHFR, mitochondrial differences and more. Figure out what the ingredients, bacterial types and viral strains in the vaccines might do to pre-existing genetic differences in the child to be prepared ahead of time.

2) Consider a full nutritional and mineral panel to correct imbalances and deficiencies before exposure. For example, glutathione is an antioxidant used in the liver to break down heavy metals (among other functions), so if your child is deficient, she'll have a harder time handling some vaccines. Low vitamin A is associated with various complications especially with the measles strains. Low vitamin D is associated with immune system dysregulation. After discovering your child's individual deficiencies, you can explore which ones are related to specific adverse reactions in the vaccination topic and prepare your child ahead of time by supplementing or correcting dietary issues.

3) Speaking of the immune system, consider mapping out your child's immune system by testing for any immune deficiencies. Especially look for clues of a PID and look carefully at IgG levels. Rule out compounding complications such as PANDAS, lyme disease and thyroid disease.

4) If you can't protect your child from vaccinations during infancy as the BBB matures, begin reducing inflammatory factors in your child's environment. Consider avoiding vaccination around teething episodes. Consider the low histamine diet.  Consider the low salicylate diet. Avoid halogen compounds such as dioxins, chlorine, fluoride, bromide, etc. Make sure the brain is as protected as much as possible and that the gut is as strong as possible to withstand the exposure.

5) Speaking of histamines, be sure to consider full allergy testing. Many vaccines contain a variety of allergens, such as blood and milk proteins from cows, egg proteins, DNA residue from various animals, formaldehyde, various preservatives, synthetic vitamins (Rota), etc. Some might be contaminated with peanut oil or other carrier ingredients. Rule out any unknown allergens before exposure so you can take preventative steps or at least have an epi-pen available.

Are you consenting to a one size fits all treatment for your child?


  1. I mean no disrespect here, but do you have any clue how much all of this testing cost?? we are speaking in thousands of dollars!!! and you suggest people to do that.... or maybe you are being sarcastic...

    1. I think the better question would be: How much does it cost for a lifetime of therapy for a vaccine injured child?
