This site is the culmination of the life journey of Paul Thomas, MD (retired) (Dr. Paul).
His has been a life dedicated to standing up for justice and doing the right thing even when it is not popular or easy.
Born in Portland, Dr. Paul spent most of his childhood in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) where he refused to raise the Rhodesia flag to his arrest at age 15 for distributing educational material that was determined by the Rhodesian government to be “revolutionary.”
More recently, Dr. Paul continues to question the evolving CDC and AAP recommended vaccine schedule for children, which Dr. Paul considers excessive based on his and others’ extensive research.
If you are looking for some fresh and inspiring insights on health and wellness, you don't want to miss Dr. Paul's latest venture a weekly show on With the Wind!
In fact, Dr. Paul wrote a best-selling book (co-authored with Jennifer Margulis, PhD) The Vaccine-Friendly Plan: Dr. Paul’s Safe and Effective Approach to Immunity and Health – from Pregnancy through your Child’s Teen Years, published in 2016 by Ballantine Books.
* Dr. Paul does not recommend the VFP due to his Vaxxed - Unvaxxed data: https://www.mdpi.com/1660-4601/17/22/8674/pdf that showed those on the VFP had 4X (400%) more health issues than the unvaccinated.
This book is valuable for those who are planning to follow the CDC schedule as it provides peer reviewed information that can help parents and guardians start the process of thinking critically about the vaccine decisions.
