My son who is almost two years old is completely unvaccinated , did not receive vitamin K at birth , eats almost only KRAV-labeled (Ecologic) paleolithic food (Stone Age diet) and dosen’t go to kindergarten, he instead stays at home with us on our farm. We have some animals and eat our own eggs and meat. Sometimes we go on little excursions, usually we go to the open preschool a few times a week. We don´t use toothpaste or other products containing fluoride and have extremely low fluoride levels in the water we get from our well . We eat a lot of animal saturated fat and sea or Himalayan salt with plenty of natural iodine. We eat Omega -3 and vitamin D supplements.
This is our way of living and it has created lots of problems for our son. He is sick very often and has managed to get tetanus, whooping cough and measles. The measles infection gave him permanent side effects. Furthermore , he has problems with tooth decay and has already had several holes . Doctors have recently complained that he has high blood pressure , bad cholesterol levels and they believe that his dwarfism problem is beacuase he dosent get enough essential nutrients through grain and dairy products. Finally , he is slightly under talented and socially maladjusted as a result of low stimulation and a sense of isolatoin due to his lack of kindergarten attendance.
No, by the way, that’s not how it was, that’s what the government’s propaganda would like you to believe.
So, what’s it really like for us? For him?
Well, in reality, he is in most respects just as great as most other children who are almost two years of age, except perhaps in one respect in which he actually sticks out a bit, he is (almost) never ill. At one occasion when he was about 4-5 months, he had a mild cold for a few days and during this time he had a slight fever for one day. That´s his whole medical history, otherwise he’s been completely healthy all the time.
How many children two years of age have really been that healthy during their life? Clearly, not many!
Although it is not possible to draw any scientific conclusions from this single example, I still think it’s a good anecdote that might clarify some of the links and reasons. The most prominent, I’m convinced, being vaccination and nurseries.
