Did you get an HPV vaccine and are now feeling ill? Have you developed some of the side effects that have been identified as part of “Gardasil Syndrome”?
One of your first steps should be to contact VAERS, which stands for Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. There are three ways to file, online, by mail and by fax. If you follow the link, it will also provide a phone number if you have any questions. It is imperative that the reaction is reported. *Your doctor should also report the reaction, but this is something you can, and should do, as well*. http://vaers.hhs.gov/esub/index You will be given an ID number, keep this in your records, and check back to make sure the information is accurate. You can, and should update the report with any new diagnosis, or new health ailments.
Secondly, and this is something that will be useful in your report to VAERS, is to get the lot number(s) of the shots given. This information is held by the administering physician, and it is in your rights to have access to these lot numbers. Also, request a copy of any and all medical records, as well as lab results. If you think you or your daughter has had a reaction to gardasil, we suggest writing down a timeline of progression.Include, when the vaccine was given, when the symptoms started, how they presented, and progressed, making sure to include any trips to the doctor or hospital, and recommendations made by the physician. What medications have been prescribed? Have you been referred to a specialist? Write down anything and everything, whether you feel it is important or not, because you never know what information will be needed by the next physician.
This next step is to change the diet. Now, we are not doctors, but have been through this with our daughters and have seen the changes that can happen. Many of the gardasil girls have seen varying degrees of success with this, some have seen remarkable changes, and others have seen slight to little improvement. However, this is a diet that can benefit the entire family, not just our gardasil girls. Start by eliminating all refined sugar, preservatives, additives, chemicals ( such as high fructose corn syrup, etc ) , and eating fresh fruits, vegetables and lean meats. Organic is best, but if you can not afford that, or it’s not available, make sure to thoroughly wash all fruits and vegetables. Second to this, is buying frozen organic fruits and vegetables. Refined sugar has been shown to lower the immune system, so this is very important. It’s not easy, but can be very beneficial. Drink a lot of water, and then drink some more. However, not just any water. It needs to be processed by reverse osmosis. There are a few different brands to choose from, but do not buy any with fluoride added in. Begin reading labels! Know what you’re eating and drinking! Even if it’s a product you have bought for years, read the labels. Chemicals such as high fructose corn syrup, aspartame, etc are in so many different items, if it’s a word that is hard to pronounce, it’s probably best to stay away from it. Also, some girls have success with a “gluten – free” diet.
Vitamins are essential. ( Now again, we aren’t doctors, so check with them first before adding these in and verify at what dosage. )
B vitamins – a liquid sub lingual ( under the tongue ) seems to work best. B12, and a Super B complex.
D3 – we have gotten varying advice from doctors, but have heard anywhere from a dosage of 1200 IU to 5000 IU. So, again, make sure you ask your doctor.
Vitamin C – there are many forms of this: tablets, packets of powder, or even lozenges.
Omega 3 / Fish Oil – either in your diet or in gel / vitamin form
Oil of Oreganol ( not oregano ) – sold in liquid / dropper form
Also, ask about niacin, potassium and probiotics.
Lastly, rid your home of chemicals. Including in those daily items you use, such as shampoo, anti-persperant, toothpaste, cleaning products. There are dangerous toxins in all of these. Switch to an aluminum free deodorant, use organic cleansers , etc so as not to introduce more chemicals into an already weakened body and immune system.
As always, we would love to hear from you if you have found any other information that may be useful to these girls. Thank you!
