Natalie Campbell and Dr. David Brownstein performed a documented study on children who were vaccinated and unvaccinated in the same family. Each family dynamic and lifestyle was evaluated. The participants were extensively interviewed on their food intake, their vaccination schedules, why they stopped vaccinating, and the health of the children. These children were followed starting when they were young children until they were adults in their thirties. Interestingly, as adults some unvaccinated individuals were required to get vaccinated due to their professions, and showed interesting results.

Campbell says she is pro vaccine. “I would rather have almost anything to not have rabies. The argument really is not pro and anti, pro and anti is really just black and white and there is not a lot of room for compromise. The real argument is choice. You could delay them, get some, tetanus only, choose some, or choose none. Consider the individual child. If you’re a newborn consider if you are going to have safe sex or use dirty needles. On the other hand if he’s a teenager and practicing unsafe sex or using dirty needles, maybe you should get him the Hep. B vaccine.”


Campbell delivered the findings in her talk “Vaccinated and Unvaccinated Children and Chronic Disease,” at the Weston A. Price Conference in Allen, Texas (November 15, 2019). The findings were also published in the Wise Traditions Journal, Winter 2018. The study was sparked with one case example where the first child was fully vaccinated and had a severe autoimmune disease. The second child was fully vaccinated and had autism. The third and forth children were not vaccinated and had no autoimmunity or diseases.

This led her to study children within the same family where some children were vaccinated and some were not vaccinated. Remarkably, each family was absolutely thrilled to participate in the study as they were shocked at the difference in their own children.

Two studies have been done using unvaccinated vs vaccinated. Dr. Paul Thomas did a study where he used 3,000 subjects and compared different vaccine schedules. Campbell and Brownstein’s study used 200 subjects.

Campbell found the health of the parents is a factor in how the children reacted to vaccines. When one of both parent had an autoimmune disease, there was a correlation with the vaccinated children presenting with great ailments after vaccinations.


Subjects used

 84 children who were vaccinated and had a subsequent health issue

40 children who were vaccinated and healthy (10% of whom were fully vaccinated)

15 children were vaccinated with a health issue

61 children were unvaccinated and healthy

Most of the unhealthy children had chronic conditions, meaning they were reoccurring.

20% of the vaccinated were sick

80% of the unvaccinated were healthy

Campbell points out a correlation with the change in the vaccine schedule. In 1986 they passed the vaccine act where nobody can sue a vaccine manufacturer and the doses subsequently increased tremendously. As the doses increased, the ailments increased.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder increased tremendously in 1991 when 7 doses were added, correlating with the addition of two vaccines to the schedule. Campbell noticed the more vaccines that were added to the schedule, the more exotic the illnesses, where you had to go the Merck Manual to decipher the disease.

One case study was a family of 6 children, 3 of which were vaccinated. They used a quality whole food diet and were sick all the time. The unvaccined children were described as super healthy children in comparison to the vaccinated ones.

One third of the families tested fell into the category of older children were vaccinated and ill, and the younger children were unvaccinated and healthy.

Test Subjects As Adults

Remarkably, as these children in the study advanced into their adult years, with jobs that required vaccination, they encountered health issues. On young man who was unvaccinated his whole life was healthy, then became a nurse where he was required to get caught up on all his vaccines, which he did. Subsequently, he began having health issues including heart issues, and other illnesses. Another adult child decided to go to Africa as a missionary, where she received vaccines to participate. She also grew up as a healthy child, with no health issues. Halfway through the vaccine update she began experiencing more and more hives, and decided she couldn’t do it anymore.

“My adults didn’t do well when they were vaccinated,” Campbell said.

In 35 families studied who were vaccinated, she found only 2 children where firstborn and healthy. Interestingly enough, Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride (no relation), author of Gut and Psychology Syndrome says the body often uses the first pregnancy as a time to flush out toxins and pathogens. Sadly this often entails flushing them into the fetus.

Health Issues

Campbell found families who were outdoors a lot, ate healthy food and encountered lots of dirt, were healthier overall.

Most of the chronic health conditions seen were allergies (interestingly she points out “before the invention of the hypodermic needle, there were no allergies”). The other issues seen were behavior and learning problems, asthma, autism, chronic ear infections, digestive issues, mood disorders like anxiety and depression, eczema, migraines, anemia, blood sugar issues, chronic cough, insomnia, joint pain, seizures, Crohn’s disease, Failure To Thrive, chronic fatigue, hypothyroidism, Hashimoto’s, Kawasaki Syndrome.

The health issues ranged from fully healthy to teenagers who were required to wear diapers, suffered from seizures, couldn’t leave the house taking the child into a social situation.

Interestingly, zero of the unvaccinated had digestive issues, mood disorders like anxiety and depression, eczema, blood sugar issues, chronic cough, insomnia, joint pain, seizures, Crohn’s disease, Kawasaki Syndrome.

After Dr. Paul Thomas studied his vaccinated vs unvaccinated group, he developed what is now called Dr. Paul Thomas’ Vaccine Friendly Plan where he used 1,098 people as a case study. With his Vaccine Friendly Plan they saw zero cases of autism. In his plane he uses the MMR Vaccine after 36 months of age, instead of 12 -18 months. It correlated in Campbell and Brownstein’s study that autism appeared after the MMR Vaccine. These children had family members with some sort of autoimmune disease, including parents, grandparents, aunts or uncles.

One family in Campbell’s study had 4 children on the Autism Spectrum. One of the parents was on the spectrum.

Campbell points out parents are presented with a very difficult decision, “If you do give the vaccines and your baby ends up with a permanent disability, can you live with yourself?” Moreover she saw couples who were divided where one parent wanted vaccines (usually the husband) and the other did not (usually the mother). She said, more importantly, “Can you forgive the spouse who forced you to vaccinate.”

These parents, where there was division, received their education on vaccines from different sources.

Campbell is currently working on another study using families whose children are in their young 30s, following their health history with vaccines. She also hopes to do a study on her previously studied children who are now having children and their health stories with or without vaccines.

Noticed a high correlation with salicylates and vaccine damage, where the child, presented with violence, red ears, and/or red face following eating salicylate foods.
