Inconsolable Screaming Every Night after Vaccination
The other day I saw a beautiful family with a 4-year old boy diagnosed with autism who started screaming inconsolably every night for hours starting two days after receiving his 12-months shots. These included the standard assortment of assaults on the developing nervous and immune system: The MMR and chickenpox vaccines, one in each little arm and the meningococcal and pneumococcal shots, one for each little leg.
The parents took him back to the doctor who fluffed them off by saying that it was nothing, the baby just had night terrors. The screaming continued unabated and in short order the little one stopped making eye contact, stopped vocalizing and developed digestive problems. So-called autism.
Of course this was never reported as a vaccine-injury, heaven forbid, those things simply don't exist in the minds of most doctors because they have never been alerted to that possibility.
If they did, the docs might have to re-examine their training and beliefs and then, oh my god, stand up for the truth! Of course that could mean the end of a lucrative career and being outed as a heretic.
Better be a coward, toe the line, turn a blind eye and just make something up. How many doctors have the level of integrity to consider that they may have inadvertently severely injured and disabled perfectly healthy children?
This family went through hell. Their child has 'autism'. He still does not speak. He is one of thousands, tens of thousands, millions of such children. Night-terrors my ass. This doctor and all of his ilk should be sued for two arms and legs as far as I'm concerned, but parents can't because the industry has managed to get our governments to pass laws protecting the manufacturers and anyone administering a vaccine from all liability!
Not only does failure to recognize and report vaccine adverse events put other children at risk for the same fate, it discourages the development of safer vaccines or alternate methods of disease prevention. It also prevents families from getting the help they need asap if their child has a reaction.
For instance, homeopathy may be remarkably effective at addressing vaccine reactions. This child could have likely been quickly helped at the time with a few doses of Belladonna or Stramonium, perhaps a remedy made from one of the vaccines.
Instead the condition was left to progress into autism. Fortunately the family did their own research and ultimately started to recover the boy with a gluten and dairy free diet and some other interventions, but as I mentioned, he still does not speak or interact all that well and has other issues such as continuing GI problems.
Tics After Vaccination
The parents of a two-months old infant who developed a facial tic, complete loss of vocalization as well as lethargy were told that this was a normal developmental stage and not to worry about it. Seriously.
After some reflection on this I decided that maybe the doctors are seeing so many children with these vaccine injuries now that they are starting to think - or are perhaps being told by the main purveyors of medical education, or should I say indoctrination, for physicians - drug companies - that this is indeed normal for infants now.
The tics cleared up on their own after three weeks but she was still very quiet and in addition developed a sleep disorder and bowel problems over the next two months. A delayed reaction, so typical of many vaccine-injuries and the main reason they are usually not identifies as such.
Fortunately a couple of doses of a homeopathic remedy made from one of the vaccines set her right again. You can read more about her story here.
Sleep Disorder and Failure to Thrive After Vaccination
Another baby was brought to me because she had developed a serious sleep disorder, completely stopped growing or gaining weight and became extremely constipated after her four-months shots. She could only sleep for 30-60 minutes at a time now.
The exhausted and extremely worried mother took her little baby back to the doctor who had given the vaccination and instead of showing concern about the situation and carefully evaluating what was happening here was told: "You have a bad baby. You should put her into a room for 12 hours and let her scream it out. The longer you can stay away from her the better." And apparently this doctor had just given birth to a baby herself!
Again, nothing was reported. Fortunately, I was able to help this baby by simply giving a homeopathic remedy made from one of the vaccines she received, which started to improve her sleep within hours. But it took several months of careful prescribing, not to mention trust and dedication on the part of the parents to get her back to health. This baby was well on her way to some very serious health problems or worse. Quite frankly, had she received any more vaccines I think she could have died as she has already completely stopped growing, pooping and sleeping.
You should see her now, 18 months later, the picture of health! (You can read more about her story here.)
Yes, put the poor, vaccine-injured, in-the-process-of-possibly-dying baby into a room for 12 hours and let her scream it out. Is that okay?
What did your Doctor say?
Of course not all doctors are blind and most doctors are very dedicated individuals. There have even been a few, including Drs. Andrew Wakefield, Paul Thomas, Sherry Tenpenny, Suzanne Humphries and Jack Wolfson who have been brave enough to publicly speak up. They are paying the price by being attacked and maligned by colleagues and by the media, but they are heroes to parents of vaccine-injured children and will go down as trailblazers in the history of medicine.
As to the rest - you will find yourselves on the wrong side of history in the end and will also have to live with your crimes against humanity for the rest of your lives unless you educate yourself and speak up for these children.
I want to encourage people to write to the College of Physicians and Surgeons in Canada or a related agency in your country about such incidents, as this kind of treatment by doctors is callous and irresponsible.
Complaints might help to control this behaviour and may also help to ensure that vaccine adverse events are properly reported and proper action is taken to improve vaccines and vaccine policy. It is estimated that less than 1% of all vaccine adverse reactions are ever reported.
The good news is that adverse vaccine reactions may be successfully treated with homeopathy and nutrition.
Speak out. Tell your story. Share. As Martin Luther King said: "Evil only succeeds when good people do nothing." So maybe you'll get hate mail on facebook or lose a few friends but so what? The truth is worth it. You could be saving a child's life.
I also invite readers to leave a comment here and to and share your experience.
Please also consider sharing your story with the National Vaccine Information Centre.

Epilogue: It is now November 24, 2018. 18 months later and I just handed it my naturopathic license because our own College has forbidden us to counsel patients regarding vaccines and autism or to have any vaccine-critical information on our websites. This is the extent of the denial of vaccine-injuries and the pressure even our own College has felt under to take this action.
PS: Here are some of the comments the article received on facebook:
"My son couldn't sleep for more than 60 minutes after his vaccines. Thankfully he seems to be ok now."
"My son developed encephalitis and a few other nasty symptoms (extremely high fever, explosive vomiting/diarrhea) after his 1 year vaccines. Doctors tried testing him for spinal meningitis and several other things and ultimately decided that he just had a really bad case of the flu. Even though he was perfectly healthy when he want in for the shots."
"'He possibly had a neurological reaction to the vaccine but the convulsions could be coincidence. Get the next round of vaccines and we'll watch him." We haven't had any vaccines since... against my doctors request."
"Thank you for speaking the truth. My son had "night terrors" swelling and redness at the injection site, unconsolable crying from 2-6months. I told my sons dr at the time my concerns and she just brushed it off. She told me it was a coincidence. I felt in my gut it was not a coincidence and i stopped vaccinating. Now my son has a learning disability and behavioural problems and a speech delay."
"The doctors are telling new parents that seizures and baby's crying so long and hard they turn purple is normal???? IT IS NOT NORMAL!"
"Saw about a dozen doctors including the one who gave me the shot. None would
aknowledge such a thing at all. I was completely healthy and fit. The only possible answer was the shot. After much research I know I am right and I will never trust a doctor again."
"I was speaking to a friend of mine. Her daughter works in a doctor's office. 20 something men are showing back up at the office telling the doctor they're unable to have an erection after the HPV vaccine. Girls and woman going into premature ovarian failure. Is this a birth control vaccine?"
"My son received all the vaccinations he had missed at 18 months so from birth to 18 months he got all the shots in one sitting he was not the same little guy after that, two weeks to the day he started to have seizures and I had to be hospitalized. He also forgot everything that he knew his body parts, his little songs that we would do, it's like his brain got wiped clean, to this day they tell me that the health nurse wouldn't have given him that many at once and that he is just a slow learner. He is now seven and has severe speech delay, among other issues. The speech pathologist is diagnosing him with phonological disorder which is a rare disorder mostly in boys and they don't know the cause of it, they say it comes from families that are in poverty, or big families. Which is a lot of crap! we have six children and we are what you would call middle class and I believe that's why they are saying this."
"My son developed Kawasaki Disease after 4 month shots. Rotavirus lists KD as a side effect and dedicates an entire section to the side effect. She denies it was the cause because it is not statistically significant."
"This is why I don't get mad when Cory doesn't sleep bc I know he can't help it bc he's vaccine injured."
"I can't tell you how many posts in mom's groups I am in asking about tics in their children, and everyone saying their doctor assures them it's a normal phase!"
"DTAP brought on a wave of Jacksonian March seizures in our four month old. Our Dr. knew something was off and ordered testing. Thankfully we acted quickly and did EVERYTHING we could to combat the symptoms and educated ourselves on these reactions and other injuries we believe we limited any more damage. Her scans showed no long term brain damage. These injuries are all too common and passed off way too leisurely by medical staff."
"Thankfully I have wonderful pediatricians who actually care more about my children's health over kickbacks from big Pharma. And thankful for doctors like you for speaking truth."
"Sudden and complete muscle weakness of her left side was "normal" and no need for concern even though she couldn't roll over, sit unassisted, or crawl by 1 yo. She also slept for crazy long periods of time and quit crying completely."
"My son started suffering from night terrors. What is sad is the doctor acted like it was normal. It is not normal. It was he'll. My son had the worst case of it. No one cared. And a psychiatrist told me it was because I was a bad mother and worked outside of the home."
"My son is vaccine injured and has not been vaccinated since he was 1 years old. He is now almost 6 years old. I would do anything to hear his voice again. I also have a 5 month old vaccine free. My Dr. is very kind about it. She just ask if the boys need there shot and I say no not today not ever. lol"
"Allergic to your breastmilk" for prolonged vomiting after the rotavirus vaccine at 4 months.
"Solution" = switch to formula.
I could throttle that pedi if I see him in person now."
"Your recent article asked for stories about pediatricians who refuse to believe vaccine injury. My daughter, each time she received a vaccine between 0 and 6 months, would lose development. At her 4 month she lost eye contact, and became lethargic. At her 6 month appointment her doctor at that time stated that her low muscle tone and slow development was my fault because I was not forcing her to stay on her tummy (where she would scream btw). Then proceeded to give her 4 injections of vaccines at that appointment. Within 2 days she began having seizures and chaotic brain waves. She lost all development gains. She is now 13 and dies not walk or talk. The pediatricians still push my to try and vaccinate her and I continue to refuse knowing it will kill her."
"When my son had oxygen levels in the 70s within a day of getting two month vaccines he was admitted to hospital for tests and observation. At the end of his hospital stay they told me they had no idea what had happened and hopefully it wouldn't happen again. I kept vaccinating him and by 7 months I knew he had autism. Many parents share similar stories. Many people have had vaccine injuries after adverse reactions, and it is unfair that no one can be held responsible."
"My doctor told me my sons encephalitis at 2 months was a normal reaction and nothing to worry about."

My middle child at 18 months had the mmr in Johannesburg South Africa ! I can't confirm the dates as he is now 31 but I'm sure just after the vaccination he had persistent diarrhoea for a full 30 days approx and went from an awesomely good smiley toddler to an argumentative and disruptive one! He has coped and I feel very blessed he wasn't worse and that my other two children were not affected! He is more closely related in features to myself and my dad who both have penicillin and sulpha allergies ( morphine too for my dad) !

When will it end? When will the medical profession stop pressuring the parents to have their wee baby have too many vaccines at one time?? When I was born I do not think I had any vaccines and only 2 by the age of ten. I have never had a time sick enough to go to the hospital. I am now 79 and was struck down bay a Vaccine Gone Bad in 2009-10 the H1N1 Flu vaccine that injured so many during that time in Canada and around the world.Create a NO-FAULT VACCINE COMPENSATION PROGRAM FOR CANADIANS

Thank you for this great article. It sounds like my son completely for the first almost 6 months of his life. Tics, screaming all night, digestive issues etc etc. He still has a lot of digestive issues and allergies. The only thing I can put it down to is the vitamin K injection because I wasn't even able to proceed with any other vaccinations (thank goodness) because he was always so sick. Now at 2 he is better but still messed up. What homeopathic remedy can I give him? can I contact you privately? Thank you. Anne

My grandson has about a 10 word vocabulary and was meeting all his milestones. Then he had his routine vaccines. Small fever treated with Tylenol, no big deal. About two days later, he fainted. Rushed him to the er, and was told he just had an ear infection, which he didn't have symptoms of and they didn't find at his wellness check. But the words just stopped. His dr told us he was fine. Nothing to worry about. He didn't speak again until almost three and he at eight he still has speech problems. He's also been diagnosed with dyslexia and ADHD.

My son screamed inconsolably for 6 hrs a day straight through for weeks at 6pm sharp each night, after his hepb shot the day of birth. I was told I was breastfeeding him on demand, and giving him a belly ache, and to stop enabling him every time he cries. He was screaming after the injection and arching his back off the mattress after the shot. He's autistic but wasn't diagnosed for years. He will be 21soon.

Made a commentary on March for Science FB site regarding the obsessive worry about measles vs the epidemic of vaccine injury. I was slaughtered by angry people. Where does one even start educating and undoing the years of brain washing when there is not even the slightest doubt that they are not wrong? Thanks for being vocal!

I have been fighting with doctors for years over my sons injuries due to immunization. My son is now 19 and because I lost faith in traditional medicine and stopped letting them make me feel I was uneducated and literally stupid. Austin was my 2nd child, my pregnancy was smooth n he was born a beautiful healthy little man. He almost slept through the night from birth, he was literally perfect, he rarely cried n when he did is was to tell me something. I remember actually discussing with my husband how alert he was the day we brought him home and how I never remember our daughter being that way. It's hard to even go back to that place cause I have very memories of that baby. The very first time I took him for shots there was some sort of reaction shortly, the first time he cried all night after n there was no pleasing, he ran a slight fever but nothing alarming enuf to run to the er over I was told when I called. From that time on things progressed, he threw up every time he ate, he couldn't seem to sleep comfortably, he was constipated n I had to continually give him baby suppositories ( which was so terrible n heartbreaking). I had him to the doctor what seemed like everyday n best diagnosis was lactose intolerant, gas and gurd. So stopped breast feeding start soy formula and things will b fine they said. Again things weren't fine. The next change I remember after shots was my son wouldn't look at me or smile when I would sing to him as he did, he acted like he couldn't c or hear which I freaked n yelled for my husband. We layed him on the ground n got out loud, bright toys to c if he reacted and thank god he did but not as b4. Then while he layed there I noticed how stiff he looked and I started moving his legs n it literally a struggle the move them n he acted like it hurt. My husband lifted him up and was shocked as well, he then tried to sit him on his lap and had a hard time getting him to bend. What?? So next day at the doc n again I was wrote off. There's so much I could write a book (sorry). Trying to make it short. By a year he was barely making noises n couldn't even sit up cause obviously he couldn't bend of course. Mind u by this time I had switched hosp/ doc n still was wrote off. My husbands insurance only covered 2 hospitals that were close so what could I do? I exercised my sons extremities all the time hoping to prevent him from permanently b contracted, I came up with my ways of helping my baby myself. Never once had anyone ever mentioned immunizations causing these side effects and back then who really knew? There wasn't social media or internet. Then the most terrible thing accured, took him for shots n of course I dreaded taking him for that, having to hold my baby down while they gave him shots and this time was the worst cause he was getting 3 the MMR and he cried that time more then ever. After we left he fell asleep n all seemed ok, he woke up b wasn't crabby just his norm. Later that evening me and both kids were watching a movie laying on the floor and I feel both my precious baby's bodies against mine and then all the sudden my son arches his back n legs n arm all come up in the air shaking perfusely. I sat up n had never been so terrified in my life, I didn't know what to do I was crying his name n he just shook n his eyes rolled back in his head. I had never seen anything like this so for all I knew my baby was gonna die. I ran to the back door screaming for my husband who came running and he took over thank god! He was breathing! My husband picked him up n just held him as I called 911. He came out of it b4 the ambulance came but they were sure he was seizing. He then basically just slept for what seemed like forever. They didn't admit him or act as if what had happened wasn't an issue cause he was running a temp, running a temp of 99.1?? That causes seizures?? According to them. Huh? Well again was no mention it could have been caused from the shots that very morning!!! Ughhh. So again I could keep going but basically things got worse n he was not progressing. He became angry and agressive from age 2-5 due to the inability to talk or express I'm sure. My son could make minimal sounds that sometimes mimicked words that only we would understand. He never wanted to interact interact with us, he would just sit on the couch, humming, rocking and staring at the ceiling. At some point we realized he had no fear n didn't seem to register pain like he should. He had some pretty nasty injuries when having fits, banging his head off of things on purpose, touching pot pans on the stove and much more. Things got real bad after his surprise baby sister was born. From the moment we brought he home he seemed more irritable n moody. His outbursts were professing and I realized after catching him putting a pillow over his baby sisters face that she was the trigger, when she cried he would get so upset. He would rock n hu

Amy, how awful, I'm so sorry for what happened to your son. I've heard so many heart-breaking stories like this. How is he doing now?

My son has just turned 3 today, he was such a quiet baby when born tho after his vaccines he started getting hyper, he would shake his hands and feet constantly and has only got more hyperactivity as time has went on, he falls alot, he spins round in circles and hops like a bunny, he walks on his tip toes, he dose not seem to understand although im sure he can hear, he is very loud, and has started to give us alot of sleepless nights, he dose not seem to understand danger and gets hurt alot, i believe this is all down to vaccine damage any advice please.
