Is There a Connection Between Vaccines and Autism?

Is There a Connection Between Vaccines and Autism?

No, there is no connection between vaccines and autism.

Autism is a condition that affects the brain and makes communicating and interacting with other people more difficult. The cause (s) of autism — also known as autism spectrum disorder (asd) or pervasive developmental disorder (pdd) — is unknown. However, genetics, differences in brain anatomy, and toxic substances in the environment are thought to contribute to children developing the condition.

So how did the idea that vaccines play a role get started? Much of the blame lies with a study published in 1998 that suggested that the mmr (measles-mumps-rubella) vaccine, or infection with the naturally occurring measles virus itself, might cause autism. Since then, numerous scientific studies have shown that there is no link between vaccines — or any of their ingredients — and autism. And the research used in that study was found to be false, the doctor who wrote it lost his medical license, and the medical journal that published it retracted the paper (this means that they believe it never should have been published).

Even with the overwhelming evidence that vaccines are safe and effective, some parents still decide not to have their children vaccinated or to delay vaccinations. But this is extremely risky because vaccine-preventable diseases like measles are still very much around. So if an unvaccinated child gets one of these preventable diseases, other people around that child could get very sick.

Sometimes, kids can have a reaction to a vaccine like a mild fever or rash. But it's clear that the risk of serious reactions to the mmr and other recommended vaccines is small compared with the health risks associated with the often-serious diseases they prevent.

If you have concerns about any vaccine recommended for your child, talk to your doctor. Ask about the benefits and risks of each vaccine and why they're so important for safeguarding your child's health.

migrane can be managed with lifestyle changes and medications, try muscle relaxation exercises. Relaxation may help ease the pain of a migraine headache. Get enough sleep, but don't oversleep. Get an adequate amount of sleep each night. It's best to go to bed and wake up at regular times, as well. Rest and relax. If possible, rest in a dark, quiet room when you feel a headache coming on. Place an ice pack wrapped in a cloth on the back of your neck and apply gentle pressure to painful areas on your scalp. It is very important keep a headache diary. Continue keeping your headache diary even after you see doctor. It will help you learn more about what triggers your migraines and what treatment is most effective. A dose of riboflavin in appropriate dose as prescribed by me, also may prevent migraines or reduce the frequency of headaches. Coenzyme q10 supplements may decrease the frequency of migraines, magnesium supplements may also be used to treat migraines do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

I sometimes suffer from migraine. It is caused by hunger, Cold winds, or acidity. What are the remedies.

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy, PhD
Homeopath, Delhi
Hi Migraine is preventable by medications and homoeopathic treatment is quite effective in the cure and prevention of migraine. A detailed case history is required as it is not a regular type of headache, it relapses. So, Kindly consult good homoeopathic doctor near you for your complaint. Kindly avoid taking aged cheese, over-salty food, processed canned food and alcohol. Fasting for prolonged hours, skipping meals and taking too much of stress may also trigger migraine that needs to be avoided. TC.

Hot packs are very effective
Hot packs are very effective as they dilate blood vessels and increase blood flow, delivering needed nutrients and oxygen to cells in the area being heated, aiding the removal of cell waste and promoting healing.

Dear Mr. lybrate-user don't take medicine without proper confirmation cause of insomnia. Please visit your physician and according to advice only take medicines. You can visit to nearest psychological counselor, will be helpful to rule out your cause and issue. -Do Anulom vilom pranayam, Bhramari pranayam & Om kaar chanting will be helpful in Insomnia condition. -Shirodhara Ayurveda Treatment also helpful to treat insomnia but this procedure strictly proceed under supervision of Expert Ayurved Physician only.

Sir, I have only a problem with my head. I don't know why, but I think its migraine. How to reduce?

It could also be occipital headache that is caused due to strain and tightness of muscles that connect skull to the neck. You can consult a Physiotherapist specialized in manual therapy and see if that helps decrease the pain Also stretching exercises for upper neck muscles can help. Good Luck.
