It used to be believed that vaccine adverse reactions were extremely rare. We were told that the chance of a severe event was one in a million. Over time, however, it has become more and more evident that adverse reactions happen far more than the medical establishment would like us to know.
Approximately 30,000 vaccine adverse reactions are reported to VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) each year. A recent study out of Harvard, however, found that only about 1% of all actual adverse events are ever reported. This would mean that the rate of injury could be closer to 1 in 100 rather than 1 in 1 million.
Vaccine adverse reactions can include inconsolable crying, encephalopathy, diarrhea, swelling, febrile seizures, high fevers, ear infections, allergies, asthma, eczema, Type 1 diabetes, and so much more. For a more detailed list, please see this post.
If your child has suffered from a severe reaction, please seek medical care as soon as possible. Let the medical staff know that it is a vaccine adverse reaction, and make sure that it is reported to VAERS, Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System.
If you are told that the reaction is “normal” or that you do not need to worry, do not believe this for one bit. It is NOT normal for a child to develop autoimmune disease. It is not normal for an infant to cry for hours on end. It is not normal for a toddler to get ear infection after ear infection after ear infection. It is not normal for her to get seizures or eczema. These are all ABNORMAL events and chronic conditions that could potentially affect your child for the rest of his life.
Take some time to research vaccines and their ingredients in order to make an informed decision moving forward. The effects of vaccination are cumulative, and continuing vaccination after an adverse event can have a devastating impact on the health of your child. Here’s what you need to know and understand about vaccines in order to help stop and treat a vaccine adverse reaction.
Knowing about vaccines and their ingredients can help you better understand what is taking place in the body when a child experiences an adverse event. What many people don’t realize is that vaccines contain a number of harmful and toxic ingredients and contaminants that have been shown to cause cancer, neurological and psychiatric disorders, and more.
For example, formaldehyde is a vaccine ingredient that is a known carcinogen that has been linked to leukemia. Foreign animal and human DNA and proteins have been shown to trigger autoimmune responses and retroactive viruses, and the injection of aluminum, which is used as an adjuvant, is set up to trigger a TH2 response by the immune system. This response creates an inflammatory state in the body, leading to allergies and autoimmunity.
The toxicity load of these vaccines is cumulative, which is why a child may be “fine” after the first two doses and then react after the third. Detoxification is necessary to help purge the body of these foreign and harmful substances.
Some children, however, have a genetic mutation known as MTHFR, which makes it more difficult for methylation and detoxification processes to occur. Children, who are given Tylenol following vaccination, are also at further risk because acetaminophen depletes the body of glutathione, which is necessary for detoxification.
Some children may be born with a higher toxicity load if the mother had amalgam (mercury) fillings during pregnancy or was vaccinated or received multiple medical interventions during pregnancy and birth. The higher the toxicity load and the slower the detoxification, the more likely it will be that the child will experience an adverse event.
As the vaccine schedule in the United States has increased over the years, the number of children suffering from a chronic condition has also gone up. A study done in 2011, found that 54% of American children suffer from a chronic condition of some sort. Sadly, it has become more “normal” for our children to be sick rather than healthy. The good news is that there are things we can do to help our children’s bodies heal and recover from vaccine injury. Here are some steps to consider with the help of your healthcare practitioner.
1. Homeopathy for Initial Reactions
If your child has experienced an adverse event, consider using homeopathic Thuja immediately to stop the reaction. Homeopathy is completely safe and will work with the body to purge the toxicants before they settle into the tissues of the body.
Administer Homeopathic Thuja 30C immediately following the reaction, and then twice a week for three weeks to help curb the overall effects of the reaction. This remedy can also be given on the way to the emergency room if a more serious event has occurred. (If you choose to vaccinate your children, keep this remedy on hand after every vaccination!)
If the reaction occurred previously, give Homeopathic Thuja 30C twice a day. Calc Phos 3X can also be alternated 3-4 times a day.
If your child is experiencing specific symptoms, such as diarrhea or eczema, specific homeopathic remedies can also be used to help uproot the illness. For example, you can use Chamomilla 200 for ear infections accompanied by extreme fussiness or Belladonna 3C for high fevers in children.
When using homeopathy, avoid touching the pellets, and do not eat or drink for 10 minutes before and after each dose. You’ll also want to avoid peppermint, eucalyptus, tea tree oils, and strong aromatics when dosing. To find out more about homeopathy, click here.
2. Cod Liver Oil
In the 1950’s, it was common knowledge to give children fish oils for healthy brain and body development. Cod liver oil provides Vitamins A and D, along with DHA, EPA, and Omega 3’s. These are anti-inflammatory and can provide healing support for children, who develop neurological disorders, behavioral disorders, and encephalopy. It is also helpful for those with autoimmune disease and can help the body fight infections when the immune system has been compromised.
A topical cream, such as this one, can also be considered when oral ingestion is difficult. Vitamin D Cream has been found to increase absorption of Vitamin D and may even be superior in elevating overall levels. Whichever option you choose, cod liver oil is a supplement that can truly help your child heal and thrive.
3. Whole-Food Vitamin C
Vitamin C is an important vitamin used in the detoxification processes of the body. Daily doses can help the body remove toxicants and can also help alleviate allergies. It is important to choose a whole-food vitamin C supplement such as this one for older children or this one for infants. Vitamin C patches can also be used for children, who are sensitive to taste and textures.
4. Detox Baths
Taking detoxification baths twice a week can help your child’s body as well. Consider adding 2 cups of pure Epsom salts to her bath and allow her to soak for 15-20 minutes. Essential oils, such as lavender, can also be added to enhance the detoxification process. Rinse when finished, and make sure she drinks plenty of water.
For younger children, consider substituting the salts for ground ginger. Add 2 tablespoons of ginger to the bath and soak as above.
5. Far Infrared Saunas
Far infrared saunas are another great way to help the body purge toxicants and heavy metals. Consider the age of your child prior to doing this and work your way up to 10 minutes per session.
6. Probiotics & Prebiotics
Many children, who suffer from a vaccine adverse reaction, have digestive and intestinal issues following the injury. This gut dysbiosis can present itself as diarrhea, picky eating, behavioral disorders, and even skin conditions. In many cases, children find relief by avoiding gluten, dairy, soy, along with sugars and artificial dyes.
Others respond well to enzymes, Candida cleanses, and probiotics, which help with digestion and the growth of healthy gut flora. This probiotic is a good option for infants, and this one works well for children. *It’s important to note that not all children respond well to probiotics. See your healthcare practitioner for more information.
For those with more severe cases of gut dysbiosis, prescription medications, such as Nystatin, may need to be considered to kill yeast overgrowth.
Another option that is worth looking into is The Nemechek Protocol. This protocol uses three simple supplements, including prebiotic inulin, fish oils, and local, certified olive oil to restore intestinal health and help the brain heal.
7. Heavy Metal Detoxification
Moving heavy metals out of the body should only be done with the help of a knowledgable healthcare practitioner. Specific supplements are needed to draw the metals out of the tissues and brain, and then specific binders are needed to bind to the metals and ensure that they are removed from the body. Without proper binding, these metals can be pulled from the tissues and relocated, causing potential harm.
Consider researching TRS, Andy Cutler Chelation protocol, and ionic footbaths to learn more. For a safer option, also look into using homeopathic heavy metal nosodes, homeopathic blends, and herbal binders.
During the detoxification process, fluids are required to help flush the toxicants out of the body. Ideally, your child should drink plenty of water to help do this efficiently. Other viable options include coconut water, all-natural electrolyte drinks, and pure, homemade raw juices. These can help replenish the body with the nourishment it needs to continue to detox and remain healthy and well.
9. Healing with Homeopathy
Homeopathy can also be used to antidote specific vaccines. The homeopath would prepare a homeopathic remedy of the specific vaccine received, and these would be given in specific potencies and intervals to help the body reverse the negative actions of the vaccine. CEASE and Heilkunst Sequential Homeopathy are specific homeopathic approaches that can be considered for this.
Another homeopathic approach to consider is classical homeopathy, where a specific remedy is matched to the overall symptoms of your child. Because homeopathy works on the scientific principle that like cures like, the healing action of the correct remedy can help the body recover after vaccination.
And finally, there are the Banerji protocols. The Banerji protocols have been streamlined by the Banerji’s in India, where they’ve treated up to 1000 patients a day. The protocols have been shown to improve symptoms in up to 80% of all cases. Second-line and even third-line homeopathic medicines are also included in much of their work for the remaining 20% of cases. The Banerji Protocols can be used to treat ADHD, Autism, Eczema, and more.
10. Natural Remedies
When a child is ill following vaccination, their body has suffered from an overwhelming onslaught of harmful substances. Adding more toxic medications, pharmaceuticals, and antibiotics can further exacerbate the problem. As an example, one round of antibiotics can wipe out the intestinal gut flora, leading to leaky gut, behavioral disorders, a weakened immune system, and more.
Learning about natural remedies, such as homeopathy, essential oils, chiropractic care, and herbals, can help reduce the exposure to these toxicants and help the body grow stronger and stronger over time.

If your child is sick often, consider this post with more information on building the immune system.
Detoxification can lead to unpleasant symptoms during what is called the healing crisis. Healing can sometimes be uncomfortable as the body removes the harmful substances and flushes them out of the body. Symptoms can include irritability, flu-like symptoms, achiness, temporary return of old symptoms, and more.
It is important to keep your child well-rested and hydrated during this time to ensure the best results. Work alongside your healthcare practitioner if you have any questions or concerns.
Healing and Recovery
The good news is that when your child’s body is given the support it needs through detoxification and proper nourishment, it can begin to purge the harmful substances that have made it ill. Doing so can help your child to heal, recover, and thrive. That is my hope and prayer for the children.
