My Dad was a pharmacist back in the 1950's...
"My Dad was a pharmacist back in the 1950's after 6 years of pharmacy he decided that all the drugs that were being dispensed were not really helping people but causing more harm. He left pharmacy in New Zealand and went to the USA to become a chiropractor.
His whole life changed and so did is thoughts on health. He no longer was mechanistic in his beliefs but more vitalisitic about health care.
My siblings and I were born between 1959 and 1964, my Dad and my Mum (who was a nurse) would not vaccinate us nor give us any antibiotics or pain killers. My Dad believed if we fought the small infections and pains when we were babies then our bodies would get the practise to fight the bigger infections and pains as we got older. It's interesting to note that I have the antibodies for many diseases, including german measles and malaria but I have never had the diseases.
I'm 52 this year and I've still not had a vaccination, antibiotic, pain killer or any form of prescribed or unprescribed medication. I have a perfect weight, heaps of energy, love life and can't complain about anything in my life. Yes I've had loss of loved ones but my physical and mental state has able to get me through the loss of my mother, sister, grandmother, mother in law and girlfriend within a 12 month period. I miss them but don't define my life as a result.
I have three children 22, 20 and 18 they too have never been vaccinated and have never had any antibiotics or prescribed or unprescribed medications, they are the picture of health and wellbeing, they have no allergies, ADD, ADHD, autism, asthma, or any physical or mental health issues. My two girls have menstrual cycles that are not even a hiccup in their month. They are well rounded healthy children and I thank the teaching of my Dad and the foresight of my Dad that he chose not to vaccinate or medicate us.
I am also a nutritionist and my philosophy is eating only real food. Fruit, vegetables, meat (organ as well), poultry, fish, grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, eggs, butter, good quality raw dairy as much as I can. We don't eat any packaged foods, I cook everything from scratch and believe that with my start in life, my out door lifestyle and having a healthy diet have all contributed to my families health and wellbeing.
My legacy for my family is that my children understand this philosophy and will in turn bring up their children without the need for vaccinations and medications."
