Chicken Pox (Varicella) vaccine

Chicken pox is a disease that is more annoying than serious.It can be fatal for children with leukaemia, suppressed immune systems, or those whose mothers had contracted the disease just before delivering the baby.Vaccination is the most effective way of preventing this disease.

What are the benefits of the chicken pox vaccine

Chicken pox is a disease that is more annoying than serious. Sometimes complications like bacterial infections and Reye's disease may develop. It can be fatal for children with leukaemia, suppressed immune systems, or those whose mothers had contracted the disease just before delivering the baby.

How is the vaccine administered

Vaccination is the most effective way of preventing this disease. The vaccine is usually administered at 12-18 months to coincide with the MMR vaccination. However, it may be given as early as nine months. While a single vaccination is adequate for children, a two-dose schedule is recommended for adolescents and adults.

In the USA, the chickenpox vaccine is now causing an epidemic of shingles in children and adults.
Chicken pox vaccine associated with shingles epidemic
Published on September 1, 2005
New research published in the International Journal of Toxicology (IJT) by Gary S. Goldman, Ph.D., reveals high rates of shingles (herpes zoster) in Americans since the government's 1995 recommendation that all children receive chicken pox vaccine.

I have yet to see any evidence which shows that vaccinations are of any benefit to anyone except the people who profit from this ugly and brutal money-making racket.

Vaccines are neither safe nor effective and are completely unnecessary for a child's health and development.

The DPT vaccine and the genetically engineered hepatitis B and HPV vaccines are probably the worst vaccines of the lot, but all vaccines are highly toxic and only cause harm, such as ear infections, allergies, asthma, eczema, diabetes, neurological disorders including ADHD,autism and other developmental problems, cancer and many other disorders, as well as death.

Parents who want healthy children should therefore keep them vaccine-free. "Vaccines contain substances which are so noxious that they should not ever be injected into a human body." Dr Viera Scheibner PhD, Australia

"Belief in immunization is a form of delusional insanity."
Dr Herbert Shelton, USA

vzv is a serious virus. it can easily escalate into something more serious. ensure your child's nails are clipped as strep a infection can occur if the child itches with dirty nails. watch fevers if they are over 101.

application of sandalwood oil ( and not the paste ) right from the first day of appearance of rash till the fall of scabs helps prevent the pox marks.
application of vitamin e oil over the skin has a healing effect.
honey smeared over the skin will help in healing the disease.
lukewarm water baths with neem leaves helps in relieving itching.
a bath of oatmeal is considered a natural remedy to relieve the itch due to chicken pox.
