The Vaccine Debate and Autoimmune Disease

In this episode, Dr. Thomas Cowan, author of ‘Vaccines, Autoimmunity, and the Changing Nature of Childhood Illness’ helps us tackle the confusing and often contentious topic of vaccinations and do they exacerbate and/or cause autoimmune conditions?

In his decades of clinical practice and continuing research, Dr. Cowan saw that over the past 50 years, rates of chronic health conditions in children like asthma, eczema, digestive disorders, autism, and many more have exploded. He now attributes these skyrocketing rates to a drop in acute infectious childhood diseases, which serve to “train” the immune system early on.

While seen by some as a polarizing topic, Dr. Cowan’s thoughtfully walks us through his findings on possible connections between vaccination and the rise in autoimmune conditions and allergies.
Dr. Cowan has studied and written about many subjects in medicine, including nutrition, homeopathy, anthroposophical medicine, and herbal medicine. He is also the author of ‘Human Heart, Cosmic Heart,’ principal author of ‘The Fourfold Path to Healing,’ and co-author (with Sally Fallon) of ‘The Nourishing Traditions Book of Baby and Child Care.’ Learn more about Dr. Cowan at https://fourfoldhealing.com

This episode is packed with thought-provoking details and opinions, which I’m sure will only heighten your desire to research this important topic your self. I know it did for me. Listen August 10th at 7PM ET and later in a podcast at https://UnderstandingAutoimmune.com/Cowan
