For many patients who are newcomers to the field of homeopathy, the unfortunate reality of the modern medical system is that they have likely only heard of alternative medical practices in dismissive terms. The science-based practice of homeopathy is often derided in medical industry circles as “pseudo-science,” “quackery,” or some other label intended to marginalize practitioners and steer potential patients towards conventional medicine instead.
In light of such calls to shut down debate over such an important issue, it’s worth pointing out that the science-based objections raised by real medical experts to heavy-handed American vaccine protocols are not “propaganda,” as Dr. Ernst states. However, the endless campaign against alternative medicine waged by some members of the medical establishment better qualifies as propaganda.
In his piece, Dr. Ernst goes on to cite accurate criticisms made by Ms. Frolov of vaccine protocols in the U.S. as supposed evidence of some nefarious homeopathic plot to undermine our healthcare system, such when she writes that “immunization… can cause some very serious side effects including permanent brain damage [and] epilepsy… With so many vaccinations being required, doctors often have to administer several shots at a time, which can often result in a disaster.”
Where is the controversy in this accurate analysis by Ms. Frolov of the risks of vaccination, especially for young children with developing immune systems who are subjected to a whole battery of shots administered in rapid succession during the first 15 months of life? What does the science say?
When an empowered patient takes the time to peruse the medical literature on vaccinations that is widely available on the web, he or she will discover that Ms. Frolov’s criticisms are valid.
Let’s take a look at the vaccine schedule for babies in America.
