Measles, Mumps & Rubella

Confirmed cases of measles have reached a high this year according to the Center of Disease Control. This is the most documented cases seen since 1994.  Measles, also called Rubeola, invade the cells that line the back of the throat and lungs.

Common Measles Symptoms

  • Begins with mild to moderate fever accompanied by a cough, runny nose, red eyes, and sore throat.
  • Two or three days after symptoms begin, tiny white spots, called Koplik’s spots, may appear inside the mouth.
  • Three to five days after the start of symptoms, a red or reddish-brown rash appears.
    • The rash usually begins on a person’s face at the hairline and spreads downward to the neck, trunk, arms, legs, and feet.
    • When the rash appears, a person’s fever may spike to more than 104 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • After a few days, the fever subsides and the rash fades.

The MMR Vaccine: Nothing is 100% effective

According to the CDC, “measles transmission has been clearly documented among vaccinated persons. In some large outbreaks…over 95 percent of cases have a history of vaccination.”1 Studies also show that 100% vaccinated populations are still susceptible to measles outbreaks.

Outbreaks of mumps and rubella also often occur among vaccinated individuals. The Journal of the American Medical Association published data showing that antibody levels after rubella vaccinations fell to half their high point within four years.1 The CDC estimates that 2-10 percent of children, who only get one dose of MMR, fail to be protected.2 Considering these examples, how long lived is immunity?  Is the vaccine failing?


An outbreak of measles in 1985 occurred in a Corpus Christi school where more than 99 percent of the students were fully vaccinated.3 The researchers examined blood samples from students for detectable measles antibodies, and concluded that “outbreaks of measles can occur in secondary schools, even when more than 99 percent of the students have been vaccinated.”3


The Centers for Disease Control confirmed that a school (which had a measles outbreak from January 1983 to January 1984) had a “documented immunization level of 100 percent.”4 This suggests the possible weakening immunity of the antibody provided by the vaccine since it had been 10 or more years since the students had had their last measles shot.


Another example of how immunity can wane over time can be demonstrated by an outbreak in 2011 where more than 50 percent of the 98 infected individuals had received two doses of the measles vaccine. According to Dr. Poland who is conducting research at Mayo Clinic to develop new measles, mumps and rubella vaccines…

“This leads to a paradoxical situation whereby measles in highly immunized societies occurs primarily among those previously immunized.”5

Researchers of an article published in the Journal of Infectious Diseases, explain that Americans born before 1957 experienced measles and have naturally acquired immunity. This allowed women to pass antibodies onto their babies to protect them from measles during the first year of life.6 However, according to Dr. George Rutherford, head of the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at of the UCSF School of Medicine, it is possible that maternal antibodies from breastfeeding can block the vaccine, which can play a role in immunized populations contracting the virus.7 This increases the risk of disease transmission amongst vaccinated populations.

Educate before you vaccinate

Board-certified pediatrician Dr. Lawrence Palevsky explains that studies have not been done long enough on children to determine what stressors in genetics, DNA, the environment, and even other vaccines challenge the immune system and prove that vaccines are safe.8 Doctors cannot predict ahead of time who will be harmed by a vaccine or an infectious disease and they cannot guarantee that those who have been vaccinated are incapable of being infected or transmitting infection.

Boost your immune system

  • Multiple Vitamin and Mineral supplement that contains Vitamin A

The World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) issued a joint statement recommending that vitamin A be administered to all children diagnosed with measles in communities where vitamin A deficiency is common.  Their recommendation for dosage is 100,000 IU by mouth at the time of diagnosis for two days for infants younger than 12 months of age, and 200,000 IU daily by mouth for two days for older children”.9

  • Lauricidin
  • Vitamin C
  • Echinacea
  • Vitamin D
  • Beta Carotene
  • Probiotic
