Vaccination Discussion Session 2:  Supporting the Immune System  
July 29, 2013
     Join Dr. Bialek-Lehrer of Inner Balance Chiropractic  for an informative talk and discussion regarding vaccinations and the immune system.  

     Facilitator: Dr. Bialek-Lehrer 

                Time:  6:15pm-7:15pm, discussion time extended as needed
                Date:  July 29th, 2013
                Location: Inner Balance Chiropractic, Amherst
                Cost: $6 per adult

  Description:  There is much to read about and surf the web for, regarding alternative vaccination schedules and vaccination choices.  The mandates vary from state to state, as well.  There are times to vaccinate and times when you may want to wait.  The ultimate decision is between you and your child's pediatric doctor.
Attending this discussion, one of many offered in a year long series with various doctors and various opinions, can continue your journey of parent-based research and inquiries regarding how and when to vaccinate your child or even asking if you want to vaccinate your child.  And if you choose an alternative path, what can you do to build your child's immune system and health?

Learning to support your child's immune system, whether vaccinated or not is a very important life long skill.  Building a strong immune system early on helps the child to maintain his/her health through  childhood, adulthood and into their later years.  What we do for our children in the spring of their lives also effects them  in the winter of their lives........same with us!  There is no better time than the present to recognize how we treat our immune systems, a gift to keep us healthy, happy and strong.

Each of the States in the US have different exemption laws, and each country on Earth has different suggested and/or mandatory vaccination schedules.  How do we know who is right?  How do we know the healthiest choices when so many schools of thought exist?  Choosing a pediatrician that you trust and educating yourself are both important steps to supporting your family's health choices. 

Join our 2013 discussion journey as we take the time to offer sessions guided by health and wellness supporter, Dr. Bialek-Lehrer.  You may jump in at any time.  The series repeats itself in the new year.
