Alternatives to Tetanus Shots

Monday, 09 April 2012 07:57 AM

Question: I got a nasty bite from a feral cat, and my doctor suggested a tetanus shot. I asked her if it had mercury in it and she said no. I found that not only does it have mercury, it also has aluminum in it. What could I have taken instead of the tetanus shot?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:

Cat bites can be dangerous, not only from bacteria, but specific viruses (such as cat scratch fever). Because these are open wounds, danger from tetanus is minimal, and I see no need for a tetanus booster after a cat bite. This is nonsense being perpetuated by doctors who do not understand infections.

The best course of action would have been to clean the wound with a 50 percent mixture of betadine and hydrogen peroxide. This kills most bacteria, many viruses, and all tetanus organisms. Silver solutions are also excellent for sterilizing.

This case illustrates that most doctors know little or nothing about vaccines, especially their contents. The tetanus vaccine is one of the more dangerous of the vaccines and can have very serious complications.
