God also gave us doctors, knowledge, medicine, hospitals, and those shouldn't be dissed or taken for granted. Every week I get mail, from world vision, about third world countries and how simple vaccines and antibiotics could save so many lives.
I agree that natural is far too overlooked these days. And that a lot of what we need, on a day to day basis, is right around us. I also agree that people need to research and ask questions before following their doctors every command.
when my son was a week old, he became very ill. after two days of fever and two antibiotic treatments, he became scary sick. he turned grey, clammy, lethargic and started going into seizure after seizure. earlier in the day, our doctor had prayed with us, because he no longer knew what to do for us. and after he started going into seizures, we rushed him to the hospital. Family and friends stopped what they were doing, and prayed. Our pastor came and prayed over him. He was poked, prodded, tested, and given medicine. The medicine stopped his seizures. The IV kept him alive, when he was took weak to nurse. God heard our prayers and saved his life through the amazing doctors, nurses and modern medicine. Turns out, he had meningitis. Meningitis needs to be treated, with the right medicine, within 48 hours. Had we stayed home any longer, we would have lost him.
I vaccinate because I never want to see either of my children that sick ever ever again. I did research, I've talked to our doctors, I pick and choose the vaccinations, but I vaccinate because they work.
medicine has its place. and if we didn't vaccinate, your unvaccinated children would be a whole lot more at risk.
