THE VACCINE CONTROVERSY
After reading about the dangers of vaccines, I felt compelled to share some of the facts with others. Especially those who have or are expecting to have children.
I will start with a brief history and explanation of vaccines. The word vaccine is derived from the root "vacca" the Latin word for cow.
In 1796 Edward Jenner, a British physician, developed a vaccine for small pox from cow pox (a disease affecting cow's utters that can be passed on to people).
That was the first recorded vaccine. Since then mandatory vaccines have been established: Polio, DPT (Diphtheria, Pertussis [Whooping cough] and Tetanus) and MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella [German measles]).
Vaccines are injections containing weakened amounts of the disease germ they are meant to protect against.
If this is true, why do children still get these diseases? If vaccines are meant to strengthen our already weakened immune systems, then why are anti-biotics prescribed at an astronomical rate?
The long term side effects far outweigh any benefits these shots may have, these include: Autism, dyslexia, seizures, speech impediments, hearing loss, blindness, SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) and chronic fatigue syndrome to name a few!
The best way to avoid contracting any disease is proper hygiene, adequate rest, and a healthy diet including supplements and Herbs, avoiding sugar artificial ingredients and preservatives. Sugar weakens the immune system, increases the incidences of infection and the body's ability to protect itself from disease.
Just 100mg of sugar (8oz of soda contains an average of 29 grams [2900mg]) reduces immune function by 50% in one hour.
Building up the body's natural immunity and taking responsibility for any illness that may invade the body is more beneficial than being injected with foreign proteins and toxic substances. If the immune system is undermined and not allowed to handle disease in its own way, its ability to protect the body throughout life is lessened.
"Disease tissue is not caused by germs. It attracts germs" Rudolph Virchow, German pathologist and founder of cellular medicine.
Germs helps decompose dying cells, so they may be eliminated by the body. Disease is the cleansing effort of the body, to rid itself of toxins and waste material.
Ultimately the decision to vaccinate is yours (for the time being anyway). It is not a decision to be made lightly. I suggest more investigation on your part.
For a copy of vaccine regulations in your school district write, to the state or county health department and the state board of education or your local school district. Most states provide vaccine waver forms permitting parents to object to mandated vaccine, for personal, philosophical, or religious reasons.
Also a written statement from the doctor that the vaccine would be harmful to a child's health may exempt a child.
The NVIC use to have a 900# Below are excerpts of what they said.
"The organization National Vaccine Information Center or NVIC is operated by dissatisfied parents together, a national non profit educational organization representing parents and health care professionals concerned about childhood diseases and safety of vaccines.
Hello you've reached the 900 information line at the National Vaccine Information Center a non-profit organization this information is not intended to substitute for medical advice from your doctor.
The pertussis vaccine which the P part of the DPT is just 1 vaccine legally required in most states. Other vaccines include Diphtheria, tetanus, measles, mumps and rubella
Some states also require proof that your child has received Homophilus influenza B also known as HIB and Hepatitis B vaccine. Often the DPT vaccine is given in combination with other vaccines on the same day. Each vaccine has different side effects and time periods in which reactions occur.
It's very important for you to know which vaccines your child received and their possible side effects and to carefully monitor your child for several weeks for reactions. You may want to contact your doctor's office before your child's appointment and ask to read the manufacturer's product insert for each vaccine to be given.
Vaccination is a medical procedure which effects the immune system and carries the risk of injury or death. Ask the doctor to give your child a medical exam first to make sure your child is healthy and does not have an infection.
There is evidence that vaccinating a sick child may not only cause more reactions but also make the vaccine less effective. Ask your doctor to take a medical history to make sure your child does not have personal or family history of vaccine reactions, neurological or immune system disorders or other high risk factors.
The Holsup Pertussis Vaccine which is the P portion of the DPT is suppose to protect against whooping cough. Although some children can still get the disease even if they are fully vaccinated.
Reactions to the pertussis vaccine can include - high pitch screaming, persistent crying for more than 3 hours, fever over 103 degrees, excessive sleepiness, shock and collapse which can included pale cool clammy skin and unconsciousness, convulsions such as twitching and jerking, unusual staring and drooling, crossing and rolling of the eyes and other neurological signs such as not being able to move an arm or a leg or a dramatic change in mental, emotional or physical behavior.
(Editor - I believe any abnormal symptoms should be taken seriously and told to the doctor. I have to warn you that your doctor may just brush your concerns off, but demand that they provide the time and care that your child deserves!!)
Severe systemic reactions include severe redness and swelling at the injection sight or severe diarrhea or projectile vomiting. More that 50 years of medical literature indicates that severe reactions to the pertussis vaccine can lead to permanent brain damage including: learning disabilities, hyperactivity, behavior disorders, mental retardation epilepsy and death.
If any of these symptoms occur alone or together following a vaccination, call your doctor or take your child to an emergency room. Tell emergency room personnel that you believe your child is having a vaccine reaction and tell them which vaccines were given, make sure all symptoms are written down in the medical record.
Once there has been a severe reaction to the DPT vaccine there is strong evidence that no more Pertussis vaccine should be given.
Your doctor is required by law to provide you with vaccine benefits and risks information before your child is vaccinated. Your doctor is also required to record the manufacturer and lot number and report any adverse event which might follow vaccination to Federal Health authorities.
If your doctor refuses to report, you have the right to report!
There are some DPT vaccine lots which has been associated with a high number of reports of hospitalizations injuries and death. (I suggest that you call 1-900-288-1222 for updates on lots)
Following is a warning list of DPT vaccine lots with high numbers of serious reports: Any DTP vaccine or DPRH vaccine that is DPT and HIB vaccines combined into one shot watch out for six digit lot numbers beginning with: 433,432,436,439,440 and 431.
Even if your doctor is not using one of these vaccine lots it is important to remember that the Holsop Pertussis vaccine and the DPT shot is the most reactive vaccine used in the United States.
Learn if your child is at higher risk for having a vaccine reaction because of a personal or family medical history suchas sever allergies - including allergies to cow's milk, migraine headaches, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis or other conditions.
Learn more about the vaccination laws in your state and your rights under the law.
If your child is permanently brain damaged or died following a vaccination, you may be entitled to compensation from the government and we can send you information on how to apply.

There are some parents that lack the understanding of the importance of nutrition. There are others whose children eat a garbage diet. These children are at more risk of any kind of health concern.
I am not an expert. I have no orthodox medical degree. It is my personal opinion that Good Nutrition and Good Health Habits is the key to good health; not poisons, toxins or viruses injected directly into the blood stream.

The focus of this site is to "educate, validate, and suggest alternative methods for the treatment of health conditions," which are not readily available to those who go through mainstream programs.
To help ensure good results, high quality foods and supplements are vital. Knowing that the cost of supplements can get overwhelming, we provide a wholesale store.
