In honor of Mother’s Day, Dr. Ed interviews Mary Tocco. Mary was crowned both Michigan’s “Outstanding Mom” and America’s “Outstanding Mom” in 2013 and held the title from July 2013-July 2014. As “America’s Outstanding Mom” she travelled the country advocating for children with autism.
Mary has been in the natural healthcare field for over 40 years, currently working in her oldest daughter’s chiropractic and integrated medical practice. She is the co-founder of the American Chiropractic Autism Board (ACAB), a former manager of Hope For Autism (HFA) a training program for physicians who want to help children with autism recover, and is the vice president of the Foundation for Pediatric Health. She was formerly the director of vaccine research and education for Michigan for Vaccine Choice, a non-profit (501c) watchdog group (insuring vaccine choice in Michigan until December 2016). She currently serves on the board of directors for the World Association for Vaccine Education (WAVE, www.novaccine.com).
From 2010 through 2014 Mary was the radio host of “Healing Our World” on the Republic Broadcasting Network, where she produced over 250 programs that focused on various things in the world that are making people sick, natural healing methods addressing those issues, and empowering people to make a difference in their health. She has also appeared on Fox News, CNN, and other news networks to discuss vaccines, immunology, and other health topics. She also created the 2-DVD presentation, “Are Vaccines Safe? Compelling Information to Concerned Parents Across America.”
She is an energetic, internationally renowned speaker and one of the world’s leading experts on the topic of vaccines, natural health, and raising children “naturally.”
In today’s show, the first of two, she discusses the general reasons to be cautious about vaccines, the data that has been “rejected” linking vaccines to autism, natural childbirth both at home under the supervision of a midwife as well as natural birthing methods that can be done in a hospital birthing center under the supervision of a doctor and why both are better than surgical forms of delivery, natural immunity, differentiating real medical information from “medical propaganda,” the benefits of chiropractic care, and being responsible for one’s own wellbeing and for the wellbeing of their children.
