Dangers of the Hepatitis B Vaccine and Infants
Like most parents, my husband and I did what our Physician told us do, after all he is the expert right? But then our first son had a marked regression after a round of EIGHT shots at 15 months. We were definitely on a search for answers and so our research began. I won’t go into our whole story here, you can read up on that, but based on that history we are now making informed decisions about our health and have a better understanding of where our values lie. When little brother came along we had just started the learning process, and unfortunately he received one Hepatitis B vaccine in the hospital and one DTaP at the pediatricians before we pulled the plug completely. When our third child, little sister, came along we were finally fully versed in both the pros and cons of vaccines and able to make an informed choice not to vaccinate. She is the healthiest child thus far out of our three.

Here are a few things we have learned along the way:
First, thru multiple tests we have found that Hep B is the main culprit in the heavy metal toxic load on both of our boys. We have spent the better part of three years getting it out with a gentle, natural chelation. Second, it is completely unnecessary for infants that are not high-risk.
Here are some facts about the Vaccine and the Hepatitis B disease as it relates to children/newborns:
- The disease is given from a mother who is a carrier to her child at birth. The key point to remember here is that the mother actually has it and has been tested accurately
- From bites, blood, cuts or eating same tainted food
The CDC and many other outlets will tell you it is mandatory that all babies get the vaccine to protect them. Here is a sampling of how they describe the need for it:
“Hepatitis B is generally considered an adult issue because it’s known to be transmitted through unsafe sex and shared needles. But many who get it, including children, don’t engage in these “high-risk” behaviors. They either get it at birth or they contract it from close contact during childhood with others who (have hepatitis B).”
So, if I don’t have it, and my husband doesn’t have it, and no one in my extended family has it, and we don’t use synthetics, chemicals or (dirty) needles, then why would I want it? Would I want to unnecessarily inject my hours-old newborn with something they don’t need? Would I take a synthetic if I am healthy? No.
Here is a quick look at how many vaccines are given to children age 0-5:
- Hepatitis B – 3 shots
- DTaP – 6 shots
- Hib – 3 or 4 shots (depending on the brand)
- Polio (IPV) – 4 shots
- Pneumococcal (PCV) – 4 shots
- Rotavirus – 2 or 3 doses (depending on the brand)
- Influenza (seasonal and H1N1 flu) – yearly
- Measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) – 2 shots
- Varicella (chicken pox) – 2 shots
- Hepatitis A – 2 shots
- Meningococcal (MCV4) – 2 shots
- HPV – 3 shots
That is a grand total of at least 50. You have to count the 3-1 shots as three each. So the DTaP is actually 18 not 6.
Here is the vaccination schedule when I was a child:
A “possible” total of 18-20 vaccines were given in 1980, and that is all the way until age 14, not age 5 like today.
So when it came time to specifically think about the Hepatitis B shot, Aaron and I both felt strongly that our newborn baby girl would not receive a vaccine of which she has 0% chance of getting. We were also disturbed by the reasons why this newborn shot is pushed upon parents.
- In the event that the father or mother is having a sexual relationship with someone other than their spouse and contracts the virus thus spreading it to the baby
- Ditto for dirty needle use or synthetic chemicals
So the logic is, vaccinate each and every baby born in the world regardless if they are at-risk or not. Might be a noble effort but unfortunately that is not really sound thinking in our opinion. I cannot even fathom the amount of money that these companies profit from with each shot given every second in this country. Can you imagine if parents became informed and opted out? How much money would be lost. I guess I would scare parents into giving it to their newborn too.
Here is an excerpt of something Dr. Sears has to say about Hepatitis B
This is not to say that there are at-risk newborns. But the problem is, rather than test and seek out those specific babies (of infected mothers), they inject them all.
By far little sister is the healthiest baby of all three. A strong, robust and healthy immune system, no difficulty sleeping and no developmental delays and that is convincing enough for us to know we made the right decision.
We are continuing, thru the guidance of homeopathy, to get the remaining vaccine/metals out of big brother and little brother. We are seeing the levels decrease each month and in turn we see dramatic improvements in their behavior.
The most difficult part of this vaccine journey has been to forgive myself and move on. It can be the hardest thing for a mom to do, but once you move past the guilt and anger, it becomes a mission to heal your child, and that is exactly where my energy is spent today; not dwelling on the past.
