Vitamin C & Vaccinations

Mention vaccination and you open up a cupboard of emotions: worry, fear, confusion, despair, guilt as well as polarised views. Stuck in the middle are the parents under financial pressure being forced to vaccinate their child or face losing government benefits or being excluded from childcare.

Many parents feel that they have no option but to vaccinate their child for financial reasons. The decision is not an easy one for parents as they struggle with the guilt and worry of what they may be subjecting their child to. For those parent’s seeking support prior to vaccination, a recent article in Orthomolecular Medicine News Service (click on link), discussing the merits of vitamin C in counteracting the side effects of vaccination is noteworthy.

Certainly do not vaccinate if your child:

  • Shows signs of infection (feeling unwell)
  • Fever
  • Teething
  • Not eating well
  • Is sleep deprived

Additional Pre-Vaccination Support to Consider

  • Support the methylation pathway
  • Support the histamine/ immune response
  • Support the liver
  • Support the immune system

Seperate vaccinations by at least a month.

If you feel you must vaccinate, there are other nutrients that can be put in place to help support your child pre and post vaccination. If you would like more information, feel free to email me.
