This is not an article to debate the vaccine issue.
If you are reading this article, you are likely vaccinating your children or yourself, or you are considering it.
This is an article to support parents to keep their children healthy. While this article is geared towards children, it is just as relevant and applicable for adults. Regardless of your belief system about vaccines, every adult and parent should know how to prepare for, and detoxify from, vaccines. I believe that we all want what’s best for our children and for ourselves!
This is simply a guide for healing and balance. A guide to prepare the body for vaccines and to detoxify the body after receiving vaccines. If you are vaccinating for any reason, consider adding a healing protocol to your plan and choices.
I have used this protocol successfully with my own children, children in my practice, and have guided many friends through this process. Thus far, I have only observed success with preventing vaccine reactions and minimizing related symptoms. I will tell you this, it can’t hurt, and it will very likely help a lot. I have heard from several parents that this protocol not only prevented vaccine reactions, but improved their child’s overall health!
This protocol was originally born out of fear. If you are reading this, you may be in that place... and that’s ok. I want to reassure you that you have options and choices here, and you DO NOT have to choose a side. We are all entitled to do the absolute best that we can to care for our families and ourselves.
I was scared to death for my daughter, Helena, when she was receiving her first vaccine. She was 9 years old and had never received any medication or shot of any kind. Not a tylenol, not an antibiotic... nothing. We chose to move forward with vaccines because she wanted to attend summer camp, but I had no idea how her body would react. As I have been known to do, I researched like crazy and came up with the early basis for this protocol. Since then, I have learned so much and have moved from a place of fear, to one of choice, balance and prevention. I continually support people to make their own informed choices.
The core principle here is this;
A healthy body can handle more than we can imagine. The reverse is true as well. An unbalanced, or un-well, body often cannot handle challenges without resulting in illness. If you or your child are healthy, thriving, have low toxicity, a healthy immune system, and a healthy gut, then there is an excellent chance that vaccines will not result in reaction, injury, or illness. If not, the opposite is also true. This is the basis for prevention.
It is well accepted that vaccines are contraindicated (this means you should not do it!) for individuals with severely compromised immune systems, for children with cold or flu, and for children with certain neurological diagnosis. Our children’s collective wellness in this country is steadily on the decline. Children (and adults) are increasingly exposed to processed foods, toxins, increased vaccine schedules, less fresh air, less activity, and more screens. Notice I toss vaccines in with a list of factors that affect overall wellness. Like food or activity, there are remedies to regain health and balance.
We also know that the some ingredients listed in vaccines are carcinogenic and neurotoxic. You can check out vaccine ingredients from the CDC website HERE. It doesn’t matter what your position is on vaccines, we don’t want these things in our bodies creating illness. If you are in a position by choice or not by choice, that you are vaccinating yourself or your child, you can mitigate the effects of the toxins and immune responses. I’ll say this again, REGARDLESS of your belief system on vaccines, every parent should know how to prepare for, and detoxify from, vaccines.
Vaccine Prevention and Detox Protocol
The protocol is based on these basic healing principles:
1. Nourish deeply with food, herbs, and supplements
2. Detoxify the tissues of the body
3. Decrease systemic inflammation
I'll let you in on a secret. This is a great start for healing no matter what you are dealing with!
Use your discretion and do your research for age appropriateness. For nursing infants, some of these recommendations should be followed by the mother.
Prevention: 2 weeks before (4 weeks if needed for an unwell individual)
Prevention: 1 week before
After Vaccination: For current or past vaccines
There's the Vaccine Preparation and Detox Protocol in a nutshell! Every BODY is different. Use your discretion in applying theses recommendations for your children or yourself.
Important Notes and Additions:

You may notice your child (or yourself) being extra tired or grumpy while you are detoxing. This is a good thing, it means it is working!
I have heard from family members and friends that TRS Detox works quickly and without side effects in addition to the above protocol especially for more serious vaccine reactions and injuries. I didn't add it to the protocol as I am yet to get really familiar with the product. It may be worth looking into!
If you need guidance for this process, there are many caring practitioners, including myself, that are qualified to support you.
Only a physician can diagnose, treat, and prescribe for illness or disease. As an herbalist, I neither diagnose nor treat disease. Nor do I prescribe remedies. The human body has the innate power to heal itself. Without this power to self-heal, even the most advanced medications and procedures would ultimately fail. The role of the herbalist in this healing process is to consider the client as a whole person and to consult with the client concerning changes in lifestyle, diet, and supplementation of herbs and/or vitamins to foster an increased state of balance and health. Thus maximizing the body's self-healing capabilities. Journey to Wellness, LLC encourages and advises clients to seek professional medical advice regarding any illness or disease they are suffering from. Background health information can aid in the process of a holistic, herbal program and therefore can be shared at the time of the herbal consultation. Any concerns about your health and supplementation with herbs or diet should be done in consultation with your physician. Although speculative interactions between herbs and drugs are sometimes publicized, confirmed cases are rare. It is the responsibility of the client to discuss with their physician possible interactions of herbal supplements and medications. I am not liable for any possible adverse reactions and side effects of the herbal supplements you decide to take. The client or reader must accept ownership and responsibility for their own health; including negative consequences and positive outcomes.
