Such a controversial topic…
I choose never to speak on vaccines because this issue is very complex, with often conflicting data and is always a very personal choice for people. I am not here to tell you what to do, but instead to shed light on the truth about the hidden ingredients and if just perhaps, there might be a better way. Before you can make an informed decision, you must have accurate and complete information. There is a movement in the public health field to conceal ingredients and endorse that vaccines are fully proven. The “to vaccinate vs to not vaccinate” is old and goes back to the time of smallpox when UK mothers became angry that their children would fall ill and even die shortly after smallpox shots. There is much effort into hiding true data from the public. Let me first say that I feel vaccines are needed for some people. Yes I said it. However, that statement comes with a caveat. People would not need vaccines if there natural immunity was cared for. If food was not fake food, if people were educated on real health, if produce contained the normal levels of antioxidants/micronutrients, if the soil wasn’t stripped (an orange today contains 8x less vitamin C than it did with our grandparents), if the water didn’t contain prescriptions, halides like fluoride, if Mercury wasn’t in our mouths, if toxic chemicals & fillers weren’t in meds, food, & household products in our daily life, then most would not need the majority of the “mandatory” vaccinations.
The pharmaceutical industry makes 1.4 trillion dollars a year. Today, it costs over $1800 to fully vaccinate one child. Propaganda within the system is alive and well. The biggest machine with the most to lose is the pharmaceutical industry. Their ultimate goal is to have everyone vaccinated by adolescence.
I’m not fully anti vaccine, as the issue has never been fully black or white,but who is watching this ramped up schedule when we as adults received half of those vaccinations? American children now receive 49 doses of 16 different vaccines before 5 years old. Staggering these vaccines would be much gentler to a newly developing immune system already exposed to toxins in utero.
In 2005, the Environmental Working Group found over 280 toxins in 10 umbilical cord blood samples of unborn babies! Adding vaccines containing aluminum, Polysorbate 80, chicken embryos, the antibiotic Gentamycin and if it’s the flu shot, Thimerosal or Mercury, is often too much given a toxic environment. Can you imagine what all children today are exposed to given that in 2005 there were 287 toxins in their blood prior to birth? All of the environmental toxins, pesticides, processed foods, and heavy metals can produce changes in the DNA that can be passed down from generation to generation. This is known as epigenetics. Prior genetic insults rack up and ultimately an underdeveloped immune system cannot keep up. The multitude of genetic mutations, also known as SNPs, are what lead to autism. They are genetic, but the toxicity of the environment is what is changing the DNA. This is the reason autism is now at an astounding 1 in 68 children. I personally don’t believe that improving screening techniques is the only thing that accounts for this. How many 50-70 year old autistic people do you see?
What truly concerns me is that all of these parents can’t be lying about febrile seizures, fits, GI disturbances and slow inward regression that they witnessed after their children received a plethora of vaccinations. Not everyone is lying. I choose to put faith in the general public rather than the giant pharmaceutical complex who pays for its own research.
Just remember, If you are told that you should not investigate or question laws or authority, this is the exact reason that you should. I did, but be sure to do your own research and not listen to the mainstream blindly.
Medical schools, as they are taught and paid by pharmaceutical companies to teach their agenda, do not properly educate medical doctors on vaccine ingredients and safety. Bayer pharmacies helped write and publish some of my prominent medical journals and board review books. We all can admit how prestigious and wealthy the pharma and biotech industry has become. They have a lot to gain by not curing disease and instead coming with billion dollar “treatments” without addressing the root cause. In recent years we’ve seen additional MMR boosters when the second one provided 92% immunity, the Gardasil vaccine which has maimed girls around the world, and the hepatitis and rotavirus boosters are now added to the schedule.
It seems medical doctors are fearful of going against the system that raised them. They are also terrified of childhood illnesses that they have not treated and have no idea how to support. This is a roadblock for taking an objective look at both sides of the argument. I am not fully against vaccination, however I am against the aggressive and advanced schedule for a child as young as 3. Vaccines do work, but at what risk and cost? There has to be a better way, with less toxic preservatives and a kinder, staggered schedule.
Here are some facts courtesy of Dr Tenpenny’s website:
“Vaccine studies do not use inert placebo to assess safety.
The word “effective” used in vaccine lingo does not mean protection. Effective means to inject a foreign solution in order to produce an antibody. They call this the protection antibody.”
If you examine old historical records, you see that Smallpox and the Spanish flu were not eradicated by vaccines but by good hygiene, de-stressing, and improving innate immunity. While the mortality rate of people treated with traditional medicine and drugs was 30%, those treated by homeopathic physicians had mortality rate of 1.05 percent.
“Of the fifteen hundred cases reported at the Homeopathic Medical Society of the District of Columbia there were only fifteen deaths. Recoveries in the National Homeopathic Hospital were 100%. In Ohio, of 1,000 cases of influenza, Dr. T. A. McCann, MD, Dayton, Ohio reported NO DEATHS.” (4)
Among the Amish, who do sometimes vaccinate but at much lower rates, the rate of autism is strikingly low. Among Pennsylvania Amish children, 3 were adopted and vaccinated prior, and one lived down wind from a coal burning power plant. In March 2006, Drs. Kevin Strauss, Holmes Morton and others documented 9 autistic Amish children, which could raise the autism rate of the Lancaster Amish community Olmsted to almost 1/5,000 which is still a fraction of the US average of 1/68. The statement that autism doesn’t exist in Amish populations generally somewhat exaggerated, though the rate is a very small fraction of that in the surrounding population. Although correlation does not equal causation, it can be inferred that a lifestyle free of modern pollutants and toxins has decreased their risk of autism.
What are the REAL Vaccine Ingredients:
Its true that vaccines have some shocking fillers. Please stand up for your rights and ask to see a package insert.
How can any of us approve aluminum, possibly Mercury, formaldehyde, human albumin, cells from aborted fetuses and stray oncogenic viruses? Again, I am not arguing that vaccines have not decreased communicable diseases rather drastically, I am asking at what long term cost? Early vaccinations were less frequent and without a myriad of fillers, but as time has progressed the schedule and amount of preservatives have steadily climbed.
“For example, aluminum was discovered in the brain of mice after gardasil injection and peaked after three days. Aluminum is also known to induce production of IgE linked with allergies. It is a strong immune stimulator and carries a risk for autoimmunity and long term brain inflammation. Is it unreasonable to question the 18 vaccines with aluminum are safe for children?”-Journal of inorganic chemistry 2011.
2. Thimerosal or Mercury
“Thimerosal, an organomercury compound, has been used widely as a preservative. Therefore, concerns have been raised about its neurotoxicity….these results indicate that embryonic exposure to Thimerosal produces lasting impairment of brain monoaminergic system, and thus every effort should be made to avoid the use of Thimerosal.” Brain and Development 2013
Thimerosal, or Mercury, has been traditionally used in vaccines and today is only in most seasonal and H1N1 vaccinations. It has never been rigorously tested against placebos or in double blind studies by the FDA. They have yet to produce one of the safety tests of toxicological studies required by the vaccine manufacturers. The only studies suggesting Mercury causes no harm have been researched and paid for by the pharma industry. The published, independent, clinical, and statistical studies dwarf the pharma paid studies. However if one educated scientist dares to deem Mercury unsafe, their funding and grants are withdrawn. Money and power talk in this industry.
Interestingly Mercury was added to vaccines in the 1980s and the rise of autism began to increase sharply then. The cause again genetic changes provoked mostly by environment. Why are boys affected at a 4 to one rate? Testosterone actually increases the toxicity of Mercury.
Thimerosal has been removed from all childhood vaccinations. However the CDC now recommends that all pregnant women and young children get their annual Mercury filled flu shots. This would seem as quite counterintuitive as they strongly warn pregnant women to watch their consumption of fish containing Mercury.
Mercury does cross the blood brain barrier and is therefore extremely toxic to developing neurologic and immune systems. Still the black and white pro vaxxers, who never question authority or the schedule, trust the system wholeheartedly. This system has known for decades that Mercury is a known neurotoxin. In fact, the Eli Lilly Material Safety Data Sheet acknowledges that Mercury in utero and in children causes “mild to severe mental retardation and mild to severe gross motor impairment.”
How is this in any amount safe especially in children or women bearing developing children?
3. Polysorbate 80 or tween 80:
Tween 80 can cause anaphylaxis and causes infertility in female mice by estrogen stimulation.
4. Triton X-100:
A detergent known to damage cell membranes and disrupt mitochondria. Linked to cancer.
Better known as embalming fluid, it is classified as a known carcinogen by the National Toxicology Program.
6. Sodium borate
It turns to boric acid inside the body which is found in rat poison, flame retardants and laundry detergent. It interferes with sperm production in high levels and causes developmental defects. But it has been banned in the USA as a food preservative, but still ok to inject?
7. Human diploid cells from aborted fetuses
The rest of the vaccines contain: Hydrolyzed gelatin, numerous antibiotics, chick embryonic fluid, monkey kidney cells, soy protein, yeast, calf serum, even MSG and aspartame.
How is this the acceptable way to give a live attenuated or killed vaccine strain? I urge you to do your own research and critical thinking.
Here are some Side Effects that you may or may not be aware of, linking vaccines to neurologic damage.
Encephalitis is only one of the side effects listed as a consequence of vaccines. This is a big doctor word for brain damage and possibly autism. Other side effects right from the package insert include: guillain barre, emcephalomyelitis, transverse myelitis, febrile convulsions, seizures, ataxia, polyneuropathy, and parasthesias.
Why isn’t this public knowledge?
Physicians don’t read the VAERS reports and many aren’t even aware that vaccine court exists. It is not taught to physicians and is kept out of the media at all costs. In fact, It is illegal to sue vaccine manufacturers but they have, behind closed doors, given over 4 billion away to vaccine injured families. In fact, just between January 2006 and December 2013, the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has paid $944 million in claims for flu shot injuries. The US Supreme Court admitted that vaccines are “unavoidably unsafe,” but still mandates them. Why? In my opinion it’s because of the corruption of the present world we live in. As corporations rule the world, the also influence laws and society. It begets them to continue to use earth as a toxic waste dump while they line their pockets.
Of course we all need some vaccinations if we continue to live a life full of antibiotics, long term narcotic use, gmo and pesticide sprayed food, and chronic stress.
Remember if the flower doesn’t bloom, we don’t blame the flower. We change the environment.
Only a life of organic, while food and herbs, loaded with fruits and veggies can produce life. Taking care of oneself, proper sleep, relaxation techniques, exercise and accountability for health is the only way to avoid any unnecessary vaccinations.
Vaccinations that I Would Avoid:
There are a few vaccines that I might avoid if given the choice. Things like the third MMR booster, hepatitis, DTAP, rotavirus, and chicken pox can all be staggering if need be. Sadly, California has made it much more difficult for families while taking away parental rights when they voted in SB277, requiring mandatory vaccinations. I always believe in the right to choose. What vaccines would I absolutely never get? The Flu Shot and Gardasil. Rhode Island actually made the HPV vaccine, Gardasil mandatory to attend 7th grade! Almost all HPV infections resolve on their own over 1-2 years. Gardasil contains two strains, while there are hundreds in nature and 20 different types cause cancer. Gardasil cannot guarantee protection and has been known to cause liver failure, lethargy and brain damage in girls around the world.
The flu shot is my personal nemesis. As healthcare workers we are bullied, threatened, forced to wear masks or watch videos and sign wavers for refusing this toxic and inefficient vaccine. Some have even been fired for asserting their rights. The hospitals keep a roaming eye on anyone who refuses the system of flu vaccines. You even get a processed sugar filled cookie to lower immunity with your compliance! And what is most disturbing to me is that pharmacies across the country give incentives like buy one get one free or sales deals for flu shots. This is clearly a profitable business.
But how does the Flu shot work…or does it?
More than 200 viruses can cause flu like symptoms. An effective flu shot only covers cases of the flu about 14% of the time. Why? Because more often than not, it’s not necessarily the influenza virus causing flu like symptoms. And in 2015, the flu vaccine was only 18% effective because they improperly guessed about which two strains would be most virulent that season. It is nearly impossible to guess which two strains, out of hundreds, will be the most prominent. Due to antigenic drift and shift, the virus mutates slightly but rapidly and is quite unpredictable. This makes it appear completely different to your immune system. It’s like a whole new pathogen and this can happen overnight for slight mutations or over decades for dramatic mutations. The Cochrane review, an independent and global network of professionals, said in 2010-“There is no evidence that flu shots affect complications, such as pneumonia, and no evidence flu shots effect transmission.”
Similarly, the Cochrane Review said in 2014 after examining 25 reports with 60k adults-“Vaccinations have a very modest effect in reducing influenza symptoms and working days lost in the general population including pregnant women.”
I myself have seen a good friend contract Guillain Barre syndrome after a flu vaccine. He was intubated on a ventilator and had to learn how to walk again after the disease paralyzed him from the waist down, all the way to the level of the diaphragm. In my humble opinion, I think we can do better. We need to stand up for our rights and demand transparency and other nontoxic options from the pharmaceutical giants. There must be a better way.
Holistic Flu Remedies
All of the common diseases that we encounter today, have always existed. HPV, herpes, AIDS, H pylori and yeast overgrowth are newer pathogens that were unheard of 50 years ago. What happened? Our collective immunity has been lowered so that now these viruses and fungi can overrun our bodies’ defenses.
Never fear. Besides a holistic and organic lifestyle change, there are a few other remedies that work to keep you from falling ill this flu season!
1.Take your Vitamins and Minerals:
Vitamin C– Vitamin C is not only a potent cancer fighter, but wards off viruses and bacteria as well. In controlled trials Vitamin C has been shown to aid in the prevention of influenza, as well as shortening the duration and reducing the severity of infections already contracted. It works better than antivirals against shingles.
Zinc– Zinc plays a huge role in maintaining healthy immune function. Low levels of zinc are associated with a decrease in T cell function, a type of white blood cell that fights infections.
Vitamin D-more of a hormone than a vitamin, D has far reaching effects throughout the body, including potent immune function. There are receptors for vitamin D on T cells and this has shown to have strong resistance against influenza. Vitamin D is also known to decrease inflammation by calming cytokine activity. One study indicated a 3-5 fold increase in immunity with adequate vitamin D levels. Get your sunlight!
Vitamin A– Vitamin A also increases T cell function. Vitamin A maintains the integrity of mucus membranes, which are at the front line of our defenses against viral, bacterial, and parasitic infections.
Elderberry-Elderberry syrup and extract are some of my favorite antiviral fighters. Research shows that elderberry extract has antioxidant properties that neutralize the activity of viruses so they can no longer enter the cell and replicate. The berries also contain vitamins A and C, anthocyanin, and flavonoids which all boost immunity.
Anything that strengthens the tight junctions of the gut wall and increase beneficial bacteria of the gut increases our immune function. Some examples include colostrum, slippery elm bark, marshmallow root, aloe vera, mushrooms like turkey tail, reishi and shiitake, probiotics, digestive enzymes, L-glutamine, and licorice root.
Echinacea contains polysaccharides that increase immunity naturally.
Look for apple cider vinegar, cayenne pepper, black pepper, lemon, ginger, wheatgrass and turmeric tonics as these “shots” will naturally help increase immunity when ill.
Lifestyle tips for the preventing the Flu:
Sleep– Maintaining a balanced sleep routine is one way to keep our immune system healthy. Adults need 8 or 9 hours of sleep each night to rejuvenate for the next day. The immune system only regenerates at night so it is imperative that we are all getting enough shut eye! Consistent and inadequate sleep lowers the body’s defenses needed for fighting viral infections.
Stress- Excessive and chronic stress can decrease our immunity and cause significant damage to our overall health and hormone levels. Establishing stress management techniques like deep breathing, prayer, regular exercise, yoga or meditation can be the time out that your body needs to fully reset. Both lack of sleep and chronic stress are linked to increased inflammatory pathways and cytokine levels.
Nutrition- A diet rich in organic fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, good fats and quality lean proteins is a foundation for a healthy immune system. Studies have shown that eating processed sugar in the form of a snack or a meal can depress the immune system for several hours, creating a window of time during which makes us vulnerable. Avoiding excessive sugar can keep the immune system working at the level needed to fend off viral infections, like the flu.
