Vaccinations and Autism

The U.S. government spent millions and concluded that their decade-long research could neither rule out, nor prove, a link between vaccines and autism. Yesterday, a new player joined my tennis team. She’s really good, and returning to this rank after a few years off. As we did warm-ups, I asked her a little about herself, […]

Californians—and everyone who cares about medical freedom, please help

If your child got cancer, you would not be able to opt out of chemotherapy and radiation on her behalf, to seek alternatives. (And there ARE alternatives–impressive, non-toxic ones, with better success rates than the toxic ones in many, if not most, cases. Alternatives that don’t rob your child of his future ability to father […]

Seattle….things that come in 3′s….part 2 of 3

I’m not superstitious, but strange things happen to me in threes. You may have heard me speak about that. (I changed this to a three-part series, in honor of that.) So I almost brought an ex-boyfriend to Seattle with me as an assistant. That kinda blew up. Then another one I affectionately refer to as […]

vaccine convos: in doctor’s offices, at tennis

Today I hired a young newlywed named Trina, who trained in raw foods at Tree of Life Institute and whose mother is a friend of mine and neighbor who has been raw for over 10 years. (Thanks to everyone who applied–many of you are PERFECT, and I am keeping your contact info in case I […]

Vaccines, part 4 of 4

I have read with tremendous interest the experiences of many parents who commented on my two-part blog entry on vaccines. I could write a lot about this subject, and soon, I will have a much longer blog series to post, with a new book recommendation. Please read the interesting experiences, and the book choices and […]

vaccines, part 3 of 4

Jennifer asked, in response to my recent blogs on immunization, about her son going on a church mission. The LDS Church requires a service or proselyting missionary to be current on shots–even seniors. This blog entry applies only to LDS people concerned about vaccines who want to go on a mission or send a child […]

Immunization, part 2

There is a very compelling “other side” to the vaccine story. I’ll have another book recommendation for you shortly (one that I am reading), and a multi-part blog series on the topic. The most helpful book I read as a young mom, making tough decisions, was Randall Neustadter’s The Vaccine Guide. I like it because […]

Immunization, part 1 of 2

Another conversation we had, hanging out with my extended family Saturday night, was about immunization. Five of my six brothers’ wives immunize. My mother is fervently against all vaccines, across the board, and my only sister chose not to vaccinate her four kids. (I just texted her to confirm that.) My youngest brother’s wife has […]

The Essential GreenSmoothieGirl Library . . . part 7

These are books important for parents to own: Randall Neustaedter’s The Vaccine Guide is the most science based, objective, and compelling look on the vaccine issue of all the books I read as I made the difficult decision not to immunize my children.   For instance, although the DPT shot seemed a no-brainer to avoid […]

Why I chose not to immunize my kids

A friend called me and said, “Great site—but are you nuts,  about the immunizations?”   He pointed out that he grew up in the polio age—he’s committed to the idea that vaccines are a good thing. The FIRST thing I want to say is that I acknowledge the complexity of this issue, the difficulty of […]
