Measles information 2015

No Comments

I have had a number of patients contact me regarding the measles situation. Obviously this opinion is the authors, and does not necessarily represent those of KidsWellness, Inc. or its employees, agents or management, but is based upon my 33 years in medical practice, seeing the situation from all angles during this time.

To begin with, despite meeting the “technical” definition of an epidemic, the statistics are paying way overblown. This is not a huge epidemic and the illness is rarely serious but miserable for about 3 to 4 days. Healthy children would rarely, if ever, be seriously affected if they were to get measles. Statistically, the most common complication is pneumonia, which, if diagnosed properly and early enough should be amenable to medical, natural or homeopathic treatment. Serious complications of permanent neurological injury or death are less than one in one thousand.

Even when measles was more prevalent there would be occasional outbreaks and “quiet years”. When I first started practice there were 2,000-3,000 cases annually in the United States and a recent (real) epidemic of 33,000+ cases. Many or most of the cases are misdiagnosed and testing is not performed. In fact, in this case it is unknown who brought it in and whether or not the virus was from “wild” (naturally occurring) measles or from a vaccine strain (yes, the vaccine can cause disease and spread the virus).

The vaccine only comes as a combination of the measles, mumps and rubella, three living viruses given at the same time along with a number of chemicals and tissue cells/DNA/RNA. etc., Merck having discontinued distributing and allowing families the choice of separate measles, mumps and rubella vaccines long ago. As many are aware there have been many reports of serious side effects, and, actually, there has been a whistle-blower from the scientific end that alleges the “science” in the medical literature was altered by the manufacturer to “prove” safety.

Certainly vaccination is a personal decision, but I would consider the above information and read the links at the end of this article before deciding whether or not to give the MMR vaccine. Some general things you can do to improve health and minimize measles risk would be to give vitamin A (several old studies done in the early 1990’s proved intermittent high dose vitamin A significantly reduced the frequency of disease and complications) Vitamin D, cod liver oil, kidsWellness family daily defense, and/or probiotics. There are many other health supporting measures that should be followed beyond the scope of this article, but diet is the most important. Avoid sugar, dietary chemicals and refined foods as part of a regular healthy program. Speak with your personal health care provider or call my office for a consultation for further advice.
