Stowe, Vermont, May 16, 2017- - Update on “Hope and Healing” May 20th


Dr. Bradley Rauch, a chiropractor for 37 years, is sponsoring an all-day natural health conference in Stowe this Saturday, the 20th of May. The seminar, titled, “Hope and Healing for Autism and Neuro-developmental Disorders,” begins at 9 am at Stowe High School and will cover strategies to improve brain function and to protect and strengthen the immune system. Diet, lifestyle, alternative health care options, GMOs, vaccines, chemical/heavy metal detoxification and transcendental meditation will all be covered.


“I decided to organize this seminar,” says Rauch, "because 54.1 percent of children have chronic health problems and 63.1 percent of adults have chronic health issues. I picked autism and neuro-developmental disorders as the focus, because autism has gone from affecting one child in 10,000 to affecting one in 45 children over the last 30 years. Our country spends more on health care per person than any other nation on the planet, and we have some of the worst health outcomes to show for it. It’s time to ask some important questions as to why this is happening.”


Presenting at the conference will be Dr. Jack Wolfson, Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, Dr. Edwards Smith, Dr. Sukhi Muker, Dr. Rauch and producers/filmmakers Del Bigtree and Jeff Hayes. Andrew Wakefield, director of the controversial film VAXXED, was originally slated to present at the conference, but cancelled his Vermont appearance late last week, citing the production of the film’s sequel, as a schedule conflict.

In response those criticizing the seminar as, “anti-vaccine,” Jennifer Stella, Co-Director of Voices for Choice, says: “Now more than ever, parents should take some time to fully understand the incredible importance of free thought, free consent and free choice when it comes to medical procedures. Even if you support vaccination, you can and you should, support choice. Vaccination has always been a voluntary procedure in the State of Vermont, and concerned citizens have long-held reservations against compulsory vaccination. For more than a century, long before the industry was indemnified from product liability (in 1986), this debate has been quite active.”

Dr. Sandy Reider, a Harvard-trained MD and the Coalition’s medical advisor, adds: “Categorizing skeptical parents as ‘misinformed’, ‘anti-science’ or ‘fringe’ is a way to avoid legitimate questions. Such as: Should tetanus vaccination be required for entrance to school, given that tetanus is not a communicable disease? Why should hepatitis B immunization be required for school entrance, when the disease is found primarily among adult drug users and sex workers? Do we need to keep immunizing against diseases, such as chickenpox, that are almost always mild? There is a considerable difference between giving a seriously ill child a proven life-saving medicine versus subjecting a completely healthy child to a drug that is known to cause severe, or even potentially fatal, adverse effects, however small the chance. This is an ethical issue that goes to the heart of our basic human right to informed consent to any drug treatment or medical intervention.”
