As Thinking Parents, we all have children we love. Chances are if you are reading this blog, you have a child you love and also have a child who . . .


Has autism
Has eczema
Has allergies
Has brain inflammation
Has had a vaccine reaction
Has a learning disability
Has regressed and lost skills
Has developmental delays
Has seizures
And more . . .

Kristi Wees, the Curious Chemist and chief advocacy officer at www.EmpoweredAdvocacy.com, and Patricia Lemer, the Diagnostic Diva, autism expert and author of a new book: Outsmarting Autism (release date: March 19, 2019), have teamed up to present a new weekly podcast called:

I Have a Child Who . . .



This podcast aims to capture the wisdom of those who have come before us on this journey, the pioneers and trailblazers, the professionals who were seeking ways to heal and recover children from chronic conditions, well before they reached the epidemic prevalence found in our next generation, today.

Check out some of the past episodes of the “I Have a Child Who . . .” podcast:

Don’t miss THIS WEEK’S episode on Wednesday (2/6/19), at noon ET, for “I Have a Child Who Has Autism,” where Kristi and Patty will discuss the medical aspects of autism and answer the question Is Autism Medical? (based on an article Kristi wrote for Pittsburgh Parent Magazine, here).

The show is broadcast weekly on Wednesdays at noon (Eastern Time) and can be found on Facebook Live at Empowered Medical Advocacy’s Facebook page.

The recording will be available for 24 hours to view for free on the Facebook page and past episodes are available for download/livestream at www.EmpoweredAdvocacy.com.  We look forward to seeing you online, and if you have a child who . . . we would love to know how you fill in that blank for your child so we can include it in an upcoming show.

    I have a child who died from the 9 vaccines his doctor gave him at his 4-year “wellness” visit although there is nothing well about it.

  2. Aimee Doyle says:


    According to CDC’s website, the last death from measles in the U.S. was ONE person in 2015. On the other hand, according to NVIC (National Vaccine Information Center), “As of November 30, 2018, there have been more than 92,844 reports of measles vaccine reactions, hospitalizations, injuries and deaths following measles vaccinations made to the federal Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS)including 457 related deaths, 6,902 hospitalizations, and 1,736 related disabilities. Over 50 percent of those adverse events occurred in children three years old and under. ”

    So maybe measles can be serious, albeit rarely in first world countries. But death and disability are also serious. It’s time to look at the risks as well as the (purported) benefits of vaccines and have an honest conversation. Above all, until we known who is at risk for adverse reactions (there’s currently almost no screening), vaccination should be a choice, not a mandate.

  3. Gram says:

    I’m old enough to remember getting measles, along with my 7 siblings; we got to stay home from school for a few days. And I cared for my own 2 children when they got measles. We all survived, and are immune for life.

  4. nhokkanen says:

    I remember measles. I had measles in 1964, as did my many siblings, parents, classmates, almost everyone. Not a cause for panic — or marketing — in our first-world country with clean water and access to medical care (which has expanded greatly in 55 years).

    This author states, “Throughout my research on all three illnesses, there was a disconnect between the fearful and emergency-like undertones from the mainstream media and what I learned from reading actual primary resources (along with talking to mine and my husband’s grandparents who both went through these childhood illnesses with their children and as children themselves.)”

    Particularly note the lack of panic in the Minneapolis Tribune article circa 1963, “Doctors Give Advice to Mothers Whose Children Have Measles.”

  5. John Collins says:

    Anyone have a child who got measles because he/she/they weren’t vaccinated? Many of us are too young to remember when measles was a serious health problem, with morbidity andeven mortality, but it’s coming back.

    • ProfessorTMR says:

      No, but I got measles even though I WAS vaccinated–twice, with two types of vaccine. I also got mumps FROM the vaccine and generously (if unknowingly) passed it on to an adolescent boy who had a severe case.

    • Laura says:

      I asked my dad (who is almost eighty) if he ever knew anyone who had complications from measles and he said no.

    • Brad says:

      I got measles in the 1950s like most all kids and it was great. I got to stay home from school for about a week and watch TV. As a side benefit my immune system got trained to do its job. Don’t forget to take your vitamin A and drink plenty of water. Did you notice the graph of measles deaths in the 1900s that shows how measles deaths taper down to nearly zero in the early 1960s and then the measles vaccine was introduced and claimed credit for it.
