Welcome to Vaccines Demystified. I am so glad you are here! Click the video to get started, then scroll down to find out why this course is different from any other vaccine information series. I look forward to sharing this amazing information with you.
This is exactly why I have developed this online course.
I have heard from so many parents and caregivers who are frustrated that they can't find reliable, unbiased information about vaccines. I've also found that when doctors can't answer questions about vaccines that many parents turn to internet sources. Some of these sources are reliable, but many are extremely misleading.
What is the actual chance of your child contracting a vaccine preventable disease? How serious would it be?
What is the actual chance of your child getting a vaccine side effect or vaccine adverse reaction?
There is a whole bunch of conflicting information about vaccines, particularly on the internet. We’ll sort through it all for you, I promise!
Vaccines are a touchy subject.
DO NOT BUY THIS COURSE IF…
If you have strong opinions about vaccines (on either side of the discussion) please do not buy this course. I'm serious.
If you already have your mind made up about vaccines do not buy this course. Really. You won’t be happy.
Please stop sending me hate mail. Please.
On the other hand:
VACCINES DEMYSTIFIED IS FOR YOU IF:
You are a parent, caregiver, grandparent, citizen or healthcare provider who has questions about vaccines.
If you want unbiased, reliable information about vaccines without guilt, fear or shame.
A really cool e-book. (The perfect place to take notes - hint, hint!)
Videos on each individual infant vaccine. These videos vary in length from about 5 minutes to about 25 minutes. (I try to talk really, really fast!)
Videos on special topics. These videos vary in length from about 1 minute to about 20 minutes.
Downloads of CDC recommended timelines, alternate vaccine schedules, vaccine planning documents, and a guide to making decisions about vaccines for your family.
Over 200 hours of research condensed into 4 hours of videos. Trust me, you will FILL your brain in 4 hours.

When it is normally given.
Expected side effects from the vaccine
Possible adverse events (serious side effects)
Uncommon knowledge (what most people may NOT know about the vaccine or disease)
Dr. Erika’s thoughts (e.g., which vaccines “sting,” which ones tend to cause a rash, which vaccines you should NOT give together, how to prevent fevers after certain vaccines, and LOTS more.)
If you are looking for factual based information on vaccines, this is an excellent starting point and I highly recommend!
Dr. Krumbeck's knowledge base regarding vaccines is impressive. She shares this knowledge with the public in an engaging and informative way in her Webinar Vaccines Demystified. Dr. Erika remains sensitive and neutral throughout the series, encouraging parents and families to make their own informed choices regarding the use of vaccines. Additionally, all of the information presented is supported by published research studies. Citations are available for those who wish to delve deeper into the research. Vaccines Demystified is a great resource for anyone who wishes to understand the history of vaccines, their individual components and side effects, and the impact they have on one particular child and the greater community.
I am a primary care physician, which means that I do carry and administer vaccines in my practice. Vaccines are required for daycares and public schools in the state of Montana, where I practice. In my office I give these shots myself, which means I see exactly how kids respond to each vaccination.
Why? Because I carry certain vaccines that are preservative-free, or because their child had a vaccine side effect and needs additional monitoring for future vaccines. Some parents travel that far just because they want to have an honest, open discussion about vaccines, and that makes them feel better about getting shots in my office.
When I say I get it, I mean it. When Annika was born I had the same questions about vaccines that many of you have. In fact, answering my own questions about vaccines is what inspired me to start having these open, honest conversations with families. Asking and answering these questions is what led to my first in-person Vaccines Demystified class back in 2013, and my first seventy (or so) hours of vaccine research. Three hundred hours and four years later I am still asking and answering more and more of these questions.
I am also the founder and owner of Montana Whole Health, a full service naturopathic center that serves infants through adults. I specialize in Pediatrics, Infertility and Postpartum Women's Health.
I have been a keynote speaker for the California Association of Naturopathic Physicians on the topic of pediatric constipation. I have also been a featured speaker for the Missoula Businesswomen's association, InterChange Summit (panelist on the subject of vaccines). I have been interviewed by and featured in Fox News, Mother's Organic Health, Natural Awakening Magazine and more.
"It is my personal mission to provide vaccines in a compassionate, comfortable environment to minimize trauma to the child and their developing immune system."
This webinar is full of little nuggets of naturopathic wisdom.
Tricks to keep kids healthy, prevent allergies & eczema, when to introduce solid foods (and how it relates to vaccines), risk factors for autism and behavioral problems.
Supplements to improve the immune system response and decrease vaccine side effects.
What NOT to do (ever, ever, ever) around the time of vaccination. (Hint: it has been linked to autism!)
What’s the time commitment?
Self-paced, which means you can watch all 4 hours of content, or only 1 video at a time! Videos range in time from 1 minute to 25+ minutes, depending on the complexity.
Who is a good fit for this webinar series?
Any parent, caregiver, grandparent, healthcare provider or citizen who has questions about vaccines.
How do I sign up?
Click the super obvious button that says "Buy Now" link to purchase the course.
Where do I go to view the course?
You will get an e-mail with a link to the course on the Naturopathic Pediatrics website. It will walk you through ALL the steps in the process.
Have problems? E-mail info at naturopathicpediatrics dot com and our lovely assistant Anna will help you out.
When do I get access?
Right away! If you pay for the course you will get access within the hour. (Barring weird technological problems. This has happened occasionally, because the web is strange and there is some black hole in the universe that contains all your single socks out of the dryer and is simultaneously responsible for randomly locking websites.) You have access to the webinar itself, and all recordings (past and present) for as long as this website exists. (We hope for a long, long, long time.)
What are "office hours?"
Until about October 2018 (or later - depending if people still have questions beyond this date) Dr. Erika will host monthly "office hours" where you can ask ANY question about childhood immunizations. (If it is possible to be answered she will answer it!) Only customers who purchase the course will have access to these recordings, and they will continue to have access for a lifetime. (Or at least as long as this website exists!)
Why should I care about this?
If you have young children or grandchildren you probably have some questions about vaccines. If you don’t have young children or grandchildren or work in healthcare . . .why are you here? How did you even make it this far down the page? Thanks for reading, but this isn’t for you!
Why did you make this webinar?
For two reasons – one, because I had the same questions when my daughter was an infant. I had a very hard time finding reliable information about vaccines that wasn’t blatantly biased. Secondly – because I wanted a way to teach my patients about vaccines and answer ALL of their questions in one place. I typically spend about 20 minutes in well child visits discussing vaccines, but that isn’t nearly enough time for patients who have a lot of questions.
Why trust Dr. Erika?
This webinar really isn’t about trusting me. It’s about trusting the research that we do have. (You guys, we have LOTS!) This is the only webinar I know of that includes research on both sides of the issue that lets YOU weigh the evidence and make the best decision for your family. I haven’t excluded anything. I haven’t cherry-picked research to prove a certain point. I’ve just given you lots and lots of information to help you make a good, informed decision you can feel awesome about. That said, I am a primary care physician, and I have quite a bit of experience with vaccines. See, vaccines are required for daycares and public schools in Montana, so I have lots of experience giving vaccines to the kiddos in my practice. And in my office I give those shots myself so I can see first hand how kids are reacting. There are not a lot of resources in Montana for developing alternate vaccine plans for parents who want to choose delayed vaccine schedules, so I have lots of parents coming from all over the state to come up with a plan and get shots done in my office. Some families in my office choose all “ACIP recommended” vaccines, some choose some (or alternate schedules), and some choose none. I am happy to support all families in my office.
How much does it cost?
Lifetime access to the webinar is
How much is it worth?
A LOT MORE. Really. Seriously. This webinar, with the amount of research, lectures, e-books and everything should be at least $400. But it is important to me to make this information as affordable as possible.
