**************************************


  • Is there a question? 

    Isn’t it scientifically proved that vaccination is the single most effective cause of improved health in the 20th and 21st Century?

    Extensive investigation of the science behind the hype led Dr Donegan to radically change her views. She believes that every parent should be given the opportunity to see that vaccination: its safety and efficacy, is not a black and white issue, so that they can make fully informed choices about their health.

    Outline:

    • Introduction
    • Journey – how a doctor could change from being a firm supporter of the ‘Universal Childhood Immunisation Program’ to strongly questioning its validity
    • Why morbidity and mortality from infectious diseases has fallen so drastically over the course of the twentieth century, are our children more healthy?
    • Natural infections and immunity
    • Vaccination and artificial immunity
    • Specific diseases and their vaccines
    • Extra Questions/ Plenary

    Should you vaccinate your child or not? Only you, as a parent, can decide what is best for you and your family.

    30 May 2019, Thursday afternoon,  2-8.30pm, 30 Bealtaine, 2019, tráthnóna Déardaoin, Cora Droma Rúisc, Éire Ireland.

  • Following on from ‘Vaccination – The Question’ and ‘Nursing Children Supportively Through Acute Illness’ this lecture examines the subject of vaccination safety, efficacy and immunity in more detail. We will look at what the science tells us and discuss whether the evidence stands up to scrutiny. With specific reference to MMR and whooping cough vaccine trials, adverse event reporting, meningitis ecology, ‘flu vaccine, and nutrition vs vaccination. If you are a parent researching the subject of vaccination or a practitioner with an interest in the science of immunity and natural health then this lecture is ideal for you. With her medical background and years of research into the subject of vaccination Dr. Jayne Donegan will guide you through the correct way to read medical papers and help you to interpret the science in an interesting and accessible way.

  • In the Feb 7th 1959 issue of the British Medical Journal, Dr John Fry, GP, remarked, “Many mothers have remarked “how much good the attack has done their children,” as they seem so much better after the measles.” In the 1950s and 60s, parents used to actually take their children to Measles, Mumps and Rubella parties to try and get them infected.

    After a 1990s measles outbreak in a Steiner community in Gloucester, England most parents reported a strengthening and maturing of their child both mentally and physically afterwards “supporting the notion that measles is not a severe illness in most children,” although the author pointed out that the cases were in,  “fit, well nourished children from a community that advocates a healthy lifestyle.”  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1731978/pdf/v055p00685.pdf

    However advocating a healthy lifestyle as a viable alternative vaccination against measles is not am option that the Department of Health offers to parents.
