Title: Vaccine Injured Children: 21st Century Tragedy
Author: Isaac Golden
Paperback, 216 pages including index
Reviewer: Vatsala Sperling
This book has been around for 15 years! The very first edition came out in 2008 and the latest that I am reviewing here is the 4th edition. Longevity of this book and its many incarnations go hand in hand with a topic that has been center-stage for a long time – vaccination. The public has been indoctrinated about the efficacy and safety of vaccination though there are many instances of adverse effects that question both.
Dr Isaac Golden admits that every parent has the right to use vaccines to protect their children against potentially serious infectious diseases. He stands for the rights of parents to know the truth about all immunization options, full details regarding the safety and efficacy of all options, so that they can make informed decisions. He became an advocate of parent’s right to know based on his own personal experience with his daughter’s vaccination in the 1970s, and in a way, his book is for parents and children who have been injured from vaccines.
In writing this book, Dr. Golden educates the readers about four basic questions:
Do vaccines cause injury?
What are the symptoms of vaccine injury?
How can we prevent vaccine injury?
How do we treat vaccine injury?
In presenting answers to these questions, Dr. Golden goes about it in an efficient, fact-based manner, and uses data garnered from decades of observation and research.
The book begins with a couple of pages that contain definitions of words commonly used in homeopathy as well as immunization.
The author’s voice in this book is one of whistle-blowers, as he posits, “Wealth creation for a few has replaced health creation for the majority.” There is a great degree of truth in this quotation. Vaccines make the manufacturer rich beyond their wildest imagination, but the fact remains that they also cause injury.
The author has presented data to make a point that over 4 billion dollars have been paid in compensation to injured people in the USA alone. UK and Japan also have given similar compensations, and these incidents support the fact that vaccines can cause injury.
He has given cases exemplifying vaccine induced injury in children. How do you identify a situation in which the immunized person is showing symptoms of vaccine injury? On pages 27 – 29, you can read about the immediate and short-term side effects of vaccination given routinely in early childhood and these can be found on the website of vaccine adverse events reporting service.
Apart from experiencing low grade fever, rash, localized pain, redness and swelling etc. some recipients go on to present asthma, eczema, and food allergies by 7 years of age, as well as neurological disorders like ADHD and autism.
Symptom profiles of nine vaccines are given, namely DPT, MMR, HEPATITIS B, VARICELLA, HPV, MENINGOCOCCI, MMRV, HAEMOPHILUS TYPE B, HIB. Based on research findings, the author has summarized the symptom profile in pages 100-101.
With this background information, Dr. Golden now ventures into the COVID scenario when the public was vaccinated en masse, and now he is seeing adults and kids in his practice who are experiencing long term effects of various COVID vaccines.
Vaccinations will continue no matter how many people report injury. So, what are we to do? Some practitioners recommend taking potencies of relevant vaccines, taking nosodes of relevant diseases, taking Thuja in high potency, and obtaining constitutional treatment before vaccination, and taking large doses of vitamin c before and after vaccination, though none of these steps can guarantee prevention of vaccine injury. The author’s further recommendations are:
- Delay giving vaccines until the child is older.
- Do not give multiple vaccines at the same time.
- Do not give vaccines too close to each other, and do not give the next vaccine till the child has fully recovered from an earlier vaccine.
- Do not give vaccines for every disease.
- Choose vaccines for a few potentially serious diseases only.
- Treat immediate vaccine injuries right away.
- Never vaccinate a child who is ill, or who has not recovered fully from an acute disease.
With these steps, parents can avoid short term injuries, but they may not be able to avoid long term injuries that take years to manifest. For complete avoidance of injuries, he recommends homeo-prophylaxis, a program that happens to be comparable in efficacy and without the possibility of toxic or dynamic injury.
Finally, if short-term or long-term vaccine injury has occurred, Dr. Golden recommends homeopathic treatment using a series of potencies that would effectively remove the layers of injury.
The book concludes with a list of resources, as well as Dr. Tinus Smit’s recommendations that the author follows as necessary. Information about vaccination support group is very useful. At the end, appendix 6 has a brief introduction to homeopathy, and its foundational laws and principles that make it a unique system of healing the body, the mind, and the spirit.
Vaccinations are here to stay. In writing this book, Dr. Isaac Golden has successfully educated the parents about how to navigate the world of vaccines. Many practitioners continuously face questions about vaccinations from worried and concerned parents. Practitioners would do well to read this book as well as recommend it to their clientele so that parents can indeed make informed choices.
