<<“You must have faith and trust in your physician.”>>

For me, I don't place faith and trust in a man/woman. I think if you do that you could be in trouble. Unless, of course, science/medicine is your god. My God doesn't have a financial benefit interest in my child receiving vaccines.

<<“We have seen in our practice a decrease and even disappearances of some diseases that we had had to deal with in previous years.>>

No mention of the increase in chronic diseases they've instead been seeing?

Does this also mean that you don't give your child any medications, or see a doctor for any reason?

We rarely use medications and we rarely see a doctor. My kids are healthy - they don't need either! I have a homeopathic treatment I use for teething. I still breastfeed my youngest. I try to get the oldest to eat healthy. My babies are still quite young - 21mos and 10 mos, but I don't foresee changing this policy. This follows the plan I have had (my parents have had) for myself all my life - see doctors only when necessary and meds only when necessary. Personally, I hate meds. And why waste my time w/doctors. It's been my experience anyway that unless you have an idea of what's wrong to begin with, they probably won't know either. (I can think of 1 exception to this.)

Oh, you mean the chronic diseases that they can keep charging office visit fees and prescription fees for?

So what do you do when there's a measles outbreak in your community? Happened here a few months ago.

Haven't had any measles cases here to my knowledge. I can't worry about that. I am the type of person that could worry myself sick thinking about what ifs. I'm taking a class on how to recognize and treat diseases such as measles. And I have my faith in God. I try to keep my babies healthy - sun, exercise, sleep, good foods, lots of love. Seems to me in this day and age, kids are more likely to be in a car accident than get measles. In my opinion, 127 cases of measles in the entire US is nothing to get concerned about. Plus, if you talk to the older generation, many of them had measles and nearly all, if not all, will say it's no big deal. I myself had measles as a kid. I would like my kids to pass natural immunity on to their children and that can't be done from a vaccine. Do I want my kids to be sick ever? No, of course not. What mother would really if she could choose them to be 100% healthy 100% of the time? But just because you get a vaccine doesn't mean you won't get the related disease. And w/vaccines you run the risk of having serious side effects. I have healthy babies. I am not worried about them catching some rare disease and even less worried about them having a serious complication from the disease.

Are you worried or something?

I had the measles as a child also and I live in a city that just had several cases of the measles which the media portrayed as an "outbreak".

Six or so cases out of a population of 2.6 million is a far cry from an outbreak IMHO.
