Description

When a topic as complex as vaccines becomes socially taboo, where do you go to talk about it? Join pediatrician Dr. Bob Sears and Melissa, mother and health freedom educator, on this informative journey where we will discuss everything from disease outbreaks to vaccine risks and side effects, the vaccine schedule, media hype, vaccine laws and controversies, and everything in between.

Melissa continues her conversation with Dr. Bob with a look back at how The Vaccine Book came into being. Why did he write it, how did he formulate his approach to vaccines, and how have his viewpoints evolved in his updated third edition (2019) of the book? We explore alternative vaccine schedules and what risks they pose compared to the CDC schedule. And Dr. Bob shares his new understanding and appreciation for the health of families who don’t opt in for vaccination. http://bit.ly/vaxconv --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/support
We continue our interview series with a spotlight on Dr. Bob Sears. Melissa takes you on a journey into Dr. Bob’s past to learn what prepared him for life as a doctor. We discuss how his father, also an outlier who rose up as a champion for naturally-minded families, influenced him. We talk about what it’s like to provide a medical home for families who are kicked out from everywhere else and whether his patients truly are healthier than kids raised with a mainstream medical approach. bit.ly/vaxconv --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/support
Today we cover a New England Journal of Medicine report that seeks to establish six criteria that should be in place in order to justify mandating the Covid vaccine. But who decides if the disease is out of control? Will mandates be targeted at certain groups or at everyone, and will there be enough doses to go around? Will pharma be transparent enough with their safety and efficacy research? Will an injury compensation program increase or decrease trust? Is a voluntary system better? bit.ly/vaxconv --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/support
Is mumps a harmless childhood disease, or are the complications as common and serious as the media portrays? Are current outbreaks happening because some choose to opt out of this vaccine, or are most cases occurring in fully-vaccinated teens and adults because of vaccine failure? What are the side-effects of this live-virus vaccine, and are these risks actually higher than the natural disease? And did the inventors of this vaccine falsify their research to get it approved by the FDA? bit.ly/vaxconv --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/support
We recorded this lost episode back in January but never aired it because Coronavirus took over the airwaves. You never know when you’ll have an opportunity to share the human side of vaccine injury and the personal reason for your beliefs with friends and strangers. Melissa and Dr. Bob both share their top five topics of conversation to have ready for any situation. And the more conversations you have, the more confident you’ll become as you change hearts and minds around you. http://bit.ly/vaxconv --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/support
Today we discuss a variety of topics, starting with how tolerance of varying viewpoints can bring a society closer together and unify those in the health freedom movement. We announce Dr. Bob's new podcast "A Tale of Two Sides" and Melissa's upcoming podcast (coming soon!). Then we dig into some new studies on Hydroxychloroquine and its role in Covid treatment, and offer some lifestyle and nutritional tips on how to beat the virus if and when it finally comes calling. http://bit.ly/vaxconv --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/support
The justification for social distancing, mask wearing, and shutting down our global economy was largely based on the fear that asymptomatic people will easily spread Covid. Early studies fanned these fears and created a whole world of people willing to “do their part” by staying home to stay safe, to shun social contact, and to shame those who don’t comply. But this research was flawed, and new studies show such spread is very rare and contributes very little to the pandemic. http://bit.ly/vaxconv --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/support
Many policymakers assume that Covid-19 is largely spread by children, leading to nationwide school closures and hesitation about re-opening amid unfounded fears of kids being asymptomatic carriers. Today we break down research articles and expert opinions that show the opposite is true: while the Flu is readily spread by children, Covid-19 is not. The available data shows that children contribute very little to the spread of the virus, and schools can re-open without a “new normal.” bit.ly/vaxconv --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/support
We often see the media ignore science in favor of eye-catching headlines. Fear sells, and reassurance does not. Medical experts have been reporting cases of Kawasaki disease or multi-organ inflammation syndrome as a rare Covid complication in kids, stressing it is extremely rare and no cause for alarm. Yet the media and officials are capitalizing on fear to push the shut-down agenda. We break down this condition and hear what experts say about whether or not you should be worried. bit.ly/vaxconv --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/support
Today we speak with Senator and family physician Dr. Scott Jensen who found a national spotlight on conservative news for his unique but accurate views on the polarizing Covid debate. He discusses how mandating anything from masks to the vaccine is a dangerous precedent for a free society and how the media and regulatory agencies use fear to guide the public. He shares his beliefs as a doctor who supports choice and a government official who supports liberty and individual freedoms. bit.ly/vaxconv --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/support
Today we are honored to talk with a Placer County Supervisor who gained attention with his outspoken views on California’s response to the Covid-19 outbreak. Kirk shares what constitutes a state of emergency and at what point a county should regain its constitutional autonomy once the data no longer shows significant risk. We also discuss what happens when a Governor goes too far in exerting power over the residents of a state and how extended lockdowns may be politically motivated. bit.ly/vaxconv --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/support
We continue our review of an extreme plan to mandate Covid-19 vaccination published in a Canadian periodical by examining the suggestions on how to punish those who don’t comply. Should those who opt-out be convicted as criminals, or be punished with loss of employment, extra taxes, and loss of insurance or pensions? Most disturbingly, the authors hone in on children—suggesting kids could be taken away from their parents to be force-vaccinated before being returned. http://bit.ly/vaxconv --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/support
Today we break down a newspaper article's road map on how to make Covid-19 vaccination mandatory and discuss how readers can recognize the tactics the media use to sell a certain narrative. Why does science become so divisive when political agendas are at stake? Do we need to rely on artificial herd immunity and are governmental police powers really warranted for THIS virus? Finally, should nations devote all their remaining resources in a race for a vaccine that might not even work? bit.ly/vaxconv --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/support
Today we mark our centennial celebration with an outdoor backyard chat about what the vaccine conversation really means to us and express our sincere love and appreciation for all the support and feedback we get from all of you. We briefly discuss our roles in the coronavirus conversation as health freedom advocates, share our favorite listener reviews, and highlight portions that really speak to us and reflect our mission. http://bit.ly/vaxconv --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/support
We continue our discussion by looking at why New York was hit so hard compared to other places and examining new concerns about overuse of ventilators. We share two preventable risk factors for Covid-19 disease severity — Vitamin D deficiency and obesity — and talk about how to reduce these risks. We look at Sweden’s approach that may keep their nation healthier and finish with some encouragement on how to talk with your legislator about re-opening your local economy. bit.ly/vaxconv --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/support
Today we summarize our beliefs about COVID-19 and discuss our nation's response to the pandemic. We break down the theory of social distancing by posing a very important question: Is there actual science to back up our nationwide lockdown policy? What about the possibility that isolation could be lowering our immune system, making us more susceptible to disease and the next wave of the outbreak worse? What do other physicians and epidemiologists think of the way this is playing out? bit.ly/vaxconv --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/support
We continue our discussion with more ways to broaden medical minds. Share thoughtful concerns about things like the number of doses on the full CDC schedule, genetic susceptibility to injuries, and ethical problems with vaccine mandates. If some vaccines aren’t necessary for children's health, are parents wrong to delay them? And what about the severe vaccine reactions the CDC warns against, giving informed consent, and consideration of conflicts of interest? http://bit.ly/vaxconv --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/support
Parents often find the very idea of talking with a doctor or nurse about vaccines too overwhelming. Today we offer tips on how to get a medical professional to listen to you as you share your own personal journey. We discuss how to set the right intentions for your conversation, focus on why parents have concerns, and start with thoughtful questions that will help any reasonable professional see you differently than the pre-conceived notion of who vaccine-hesitant parents are. http://bit.ly/vaxconv --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/support
Today we share some fun in-studio conversation with the winner from one of our SoCal fundraisers. Colleen shares her journey in becoming a vaccine safety advocate and we discuss how to approach your friends when they turn their back on you after a vaccine injury. We consider the ethics surrounding a mandatory coronavirus vaccine, share our thoughts early on in the coronavirus quarantine, and discuss social responsibility when someone gets sick (recorded March 14). bit.ly/vaxconv --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/support
Today we cover Melissa’s #TruthPart40 post about this derogatory phrase and how the vaccine safety movement can respond. What do they mean when they want YOUR kids to be vaccinated? All 69 doses? Or is just the measles vaccine enough to let you around their kids? What about hepatitis B vaccine, tetanus, or HPV? We discuss why it’s so important for this phrase to be qualified and why this should be part of the national conversation since “being vaccinated” doesn’t mean what it used to. bit.ly/vaxconv --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thevaccineconversation/support

13.5% of Pregnant Women tested Positive for Covid Pre/asymptomatic for Covid in NY https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMc2009316 Also there are seemingly a 20-38% false negative rates for the tests. Even if we have little to go on, I don't know why in the absence of data you would advise people to go without masks and not worry about social distancing in public indoors or crowded places. Why not err on the side of caution?

Asymptomatic and pre-symptomatic people are contributing to spread according to more recent findings. And masks do help limit the spread of you look at Jena Germany implementation in April before other places in the country for instance. Can you address this?

You're not from NJ are you? Our grocery store customers were VERY rude and selfish. People with CARTLOADS of meat & TP. Hoping to see communal care and love for each other come as a result from all this. No government, vaccine, or drug is our savior. We can't hope for a magic authority to save the day Only Jesus can be the ultimate Savior.

great info. also to be noted is time of the year. winter months (depending on location) give.little to no UVB to synthesize vitamin d. I use an app called dminder to tell me ideal time of day to get sun to synthesize. also I have a vitamin d light i use in the winter called Sperti. it is clinically proven to synthesize vitamin d.

Great show! Thank you for that! The T-shirt idea is great and you’re absolutely right that it’s hard to win anybody with guns blazing. . This type of actions will make the difference and impact people. I am writing to you from Poland and I am constantly thinking about how to get to the people with the message about vaccines. Thank you for inspiration!

I love this podcast! I am a new mom wading through the controversial topic of vaccines. My first helpful choice was to find Dr. Bob's Vaccine Book. Then I found this podcast and lo and behold it's the same Dr. Bob! This information has given my husband and I confidence to make a decision based on information rather than fear. Thank you Melissa and Dr. Bob for all the work that you do.

Unfortunately I found this podcast was not informative. It was rather a lengthy social chat. A bit a waste of time for a family that likes to use there time to be informed.
