ND is Doctor of Naturopathic or Naturopath.

Yes, opinions that are contrary are fine, but they can be given without being rude or judgmental.

Exactly, Teddy, very well put! Sometimes by eradicating a disease by a vaccine, can actually bring other serious issues to the forefront. While I wont lesson those that have suffered greatly from the diseases that now have vaccines and I fully admit that society as a whole is more healthy due to their use and existence, I also think it is unwise to jump on the vaccine bandwagon without doing some research as to he potential health risks. The OP has obviously done just that.

You take some very serious risks when you vaccinate your child. While the resulting health issues may happen to only a very few compared to the millions that are vaccinated yearly, they do happen. And it is up to each and every parent to make the decision for their family as to whether or not the vaccine is right for them.

Vaccinations may be appropriate for some families, but it is not necessarily the correct thing to do for every family.

Edited - to change the tone of the post to a more appropriate one.

Thanks!
My apologies mamadragon. I didn't see your call for the end of the argument till I posted.

Did you find a doctor? Or are you still looking for referrals.

Have you heard anything about Dr. Weipert (sp) in AF? I have several friends who take their kids to him and they like him a lot. He's in an office by himself so he may have more leeway in choosing to support your decisions for you son. My friend told me today he's just taken in a osteopath or something like that. Someone who can do some chiropractic maybe? That makes me think he might be more open to mixing traditional and alternative medicine.

Default Perfect for your kids!

I just started going to an office in Lehi, just south of Micron. It is Dr. Dianne Farley-Jones and her husband Steven, who is a physician assistant. We discussed many things, one of which was their office's take on vaccines. They are very supportive of delayed or not giving vaccines. I asked, since they don't recommend flu vaccines, what I should do if I got H1N1/seasonal flu. The nurse said they have many things set up for that-nutritional IVs, homeopathics, I can't remember everything (not Tamiflu!). But it sounds like they really take care of their patients. I saw Steven and really liked him. 801-407-3000

Give them a call! I think they are a perfect fit for your family. They take an extensive health history and recommend personalized preventative/nutrition/supplements, etc. over medicating. And even though they practice natural medicine in addition to traditional medicine, they take insurance.

My DS has seen Dr. Weipert for 10+ years with his asthma. While I think he is a good doctor, he is VERY outspoken when it comes to giving your child medications for asthma and I don't think he would be ok with not vaccinating your son (and would be very verbal about telling you so). He doesn't take asthma lightly and is VERY pro-vaccinating, lets put it that way.

He has done a great job of keeping my DS's asthma at bay and I've liked him as his doctor, but I don't think he is the doctor you are looking for. JM2C

There is a doctor in Lehi, over by the new Smiths. Her name is Diane Farley-Jones. I don't know if she sees kids, but she is a MD with a focus on naturopathy. I've seen her and liked her.

Good luck in finding good care for your DS.

Sorry Katie Rose... I was posting at the same time!

Dr. Karla Feindt at Willow Creek Peds in Draper was wonderful. She let us delay the MMR vaccine, so maybe she'd support your vaccination wishes?
