vaccine dangers

Vaccine Safety: Truth or Myth?

needle.jpeg

It's no secret vaccines have their enemies. The number of parents who aren't vaccinating their kids is growing, and no matter how much the CDC, FDA or AMA clamors against them, these parents have good reasons.

With the Disney measles fiasco came a volcano of heat on both sides of the issue. Vaccine advocates and opponents have argued constantly about whether vaccines are safe or, in fact, dangerous to our children and the future health of our nation, as a whole.

Scientifically, when the many facets of the immune system are studied, vaccine safety is highly questionable.

Ethically, vaccines are even more questionable.

Several vaccines, the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella), chickenpox, whooping cough, shingles, tetanus, and polio vaccines  each contain aborted fetal tissues, on top of other animal tissues and known toxins, such as mercury, aluminum, and thimerosal.

The body can fight these toxins in small amounts if ingested properly. However, when injected into the body through a syringe, vaccines bypass the body's regular protection system - the gut. The gut, through digestion, can choose which chemicals are allowed into the bloodstream and can omit mercury and aluminum from being absorbed. However, when injected, these chemicals dive directly into the bloodstream and are absorbed by and collect in the body's organs, the brain included. Within the brain it can cause issues such as Parkinsons, Alzheimer's, Gulf's War Syndrome, and other neurological issues that, in recent years, are growing more and more common.

CDC/FDA-acknowledged side effects range from:

  • redness or swelling
  • poor appetite
  • fever
  • drowsiness
  • nausea/vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • respiratory infections
  • yeast infections
  • and tenderness

to:

  • fainting
  • seizures
  • Erythema (the rash associated with Lyme's disease)
  • blood in stools
  • pneumonia
  • brain inflammation or tumors
  • blindness
  • deafness
  • epilepsy
  • and death.

The MMR vaccine alone has caused 103 deaths in the US since 2003, while the measles has caused none. 

As vaccine rates have risen, infant mortality rates have, as well. The United States has the highest rate of vaccination in the world. Infants are given 26 vaccines within their first year alone. We also have the highest number of infant deaths. Furthermore, the increase in vaccinations correlates with a marked increase in childhood health issues such as allergies, asthma, gut issues, chronic infections, serious brain damage (including autism), and learning and developmental issues such as ADD and ADHD.

Autoimmune disorders have also grown in number. Although further study needs to be done on the subject, the correlation makes sense. The more these artificial, toxin-laced vaccines are injected into the immune system - a vast, complicated, multi-faceted process we don't yet fully comprehend - the greater the risk of injuring that system.

What about the widely-touted benefits of vaccination, such as herd immunity? What about the elimination of these infectious diseases?

When it comes to herd immunity, vaccine-acquired immunity is eminently different from the immunity gained from disease recovery. Immunity from vaccines eventually fades, allowing vaccinated people (children and adults alike) to not only catch the disease they've been inoculated against, but also to act as carriers. 

This may also occur during the vaccine shedding period - generally a two or three week span after injection when a vaccinated person may experience a lighter version of the disease and/or spread the disease to others.

Vaccinated persons often cannot discern when or if they are carrying a disease, hence these widespread, seemingly random outbreaks, like the most recent measles outbreak and the whopping cough outbreak of 2010.

This makes vaccinated persons a far greater danger to unvaccinated persons than the reverse.

Worse, vaccines are NOT eliminating infectious diseases. In fact, most of these common diseases were on their way out before the development of their vaccines.vaccinesIt was likely an increased understanding of sanitation, science, and nutrition  that caused the decrease in these diseases before the introduction of vaccines.

What vaccines have accomplished, however, is the development of newer, stronger vaccine-resistent strains of the very diseases they claim to prevent and eradicate. It's the same issue scientists are seeing with antibiotics. The stronger they make the "cure", the stronger the infection resists.

As for the claims that vaccines DO NOT cause autism, the evidence against those claims is piling up day by day, though the government tries tirelessly to cover it up.

A senior scientist for the CDC, William Thompson, recently issued a statement with his lawyer admitting he omitted evidence from a 2004 study indicating that the MMR vaccine - the very vaccine being so tirelessly promoted by the media - does present a raised risk of autism in African American males. He says, "Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed." He goes on to say, "There have always been recognized risks for vaccination and I believe it is the responsibility of the CDC to properly convey the risks associated with receipt of those vaccines."

The CDC, however, has not been properly conveying those risks. In fact, as the recent media storm can attest, they're doing the very opposite.

In 1986, an act called the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act was established to keep vaccine makers and physicians from being sued for any injury caused to a child injected with a vaccine. Any adverse side effects or death proven and attributed to a vaccine are responded to with a payment to the family of the victim.

The act's program office controls and coordinates all immunization-related policies in the CDC, FDA, NHIS, and the Health Resources and Services Administration.

Vaccines are constantly promoted as safe. If that were the case, why is the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act so necessary? Established so early after the development of their key vaccines, such an act points to a quick realization of the need to protect themselves from any slander or injury.

The government is protected from vaccine damage. The people of America, however, are not.

How can we protect ourselves and our families without the use of vaccines?

The answer is simple. Through nursing and continuing to nurture children with a whole food, organic, nutritious diet, we can arm children with the tools they need to fight and conquer infection without the use of these dangerous medications.

A healthy mother's milk provides all the protection a baby needs, and whole foods alone have curative properties stronger than most medications, and without any dangerous side effects. Whole food alone have nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants capable of fighting off infections as simple as colds and flu to harsher diseases, such as multiple sclerosis and cancer.

Herbal supplements can also help prevent and reverse infections. The number of immune-boosting, antioxidant-rich, infection-fighting herbs is virtually countless. Silver is one of the best non-herbal remedies, and if the Nature's Sunshine brand is used, can be taken safely in large quantities with no adverse side effects.

Most vaccines target diseases that were once common, easily treated, and most of the time, non-life-threatening. Why should we give our children, the future of America, something that could give them autism, Alzheimer's or Dementia, ADD, ADHD, seizures, or something worse?

The answer is simple. We shouldn't.

Lies My Doctor Told Me

doctor.jpeg

There are a lot of myths floating around in the health industry. Most of them are accepted by the public at large, and the plain and simple truth is this: most of them are completely false. Below are a few "lies" circulated in the health and medical industry in our country and the reasons why they are so evidently wrong.

1. CHOLESTEROL IS LINKED TO HEART DISEASE.

This is a clear, blatant lie.

The human body actually needs cholesterol to be healthy.

Despite what the medical industry and the FDA tell us, there is no link between high cholesterol and heart disease. In fact, people with high cholesterol run the same risk of heart disease as people with low cholesterol.

On the other hand, low cholesterol levels have been associated with an elevated risk of death from other issues, such as cancer and suicide.

 

2. SYNTHETIC HORMONES ARE SAFE.

The words "synthetic" and "hormone" should never be together.

Hormones play many vital roles in the human body, and to give the body something synthetic - and usually, something taken from the urine of a pregnant horse - doesn't make sense. Worse, most of synthetic hormones stimulate the production of a hormone called estrone, which is actually a carcinogen.

Since the start of synthetic hormones in the 1950s, serious side effects such as cancer, blood clots, stroke, and elevated risks of heart disease have led doctors to prescribe to shorter time spent on these hormones, but not an end to their use.

As a result, bio-identical hormones have grown in popularity. These natural alternatives are safer and can be used in a personalized treatment program to fit the patient. They're often more effective and used in the body exactly as if the body produced them itself.

However, the FDA doesn't regulate bio-identical hormone production.  This leads to the circulation of phony, questionably-sourced products on the market.

To find a good bio-identical product, find a company you trust and read the labels to ensure you're getting a high-quality supplement. We recommend Nature's Sunshine and Neolife. Both have products for the female glandular system that are all-natural, organic, and the highest quality and purity  you'll find. We carry both!

 

3. ULTRASOUNDS ARE COMPLETELY SAFE FOR UNBORN BABIES.

This one may come as a bit of a shocker. Most people regard ultrasounds as a regular, normal part of life. Everyone gets them these days. Not having an ultrasound can raise a lot of eyebrows.

However, there are many good reasons not to, and the list is lengthening.

Did you know ultrasound imaging is being used as a weight loss technique?

That's correct. A weight loss technique that works by loosening, breaking, and washing fat away.

And this is the exact same system being used to view unborn children, whose nervous systems and brains are made almost entirely of fat. 

Study after study has been done on ultrasound imaging proving its adverse effects, but sadly, all of them are disregarded as the systems in use today are six to eight times more intense than those in the 1990s when the studies were performed.

Even now, the AMA (American Medical Association) doesn't recommend unnecessary ultrasounds to:

  • Determine the sex or age of the child
  • Confirm multiple pregnancy
  • Check size or growth
  • Determine the baby’s position in the womb

Most of the above can be determined through common midwife practices or other methods.

The only reason they recommend an ultrasound is to ascertain the condition of the unborn child if serious malformation or high risk is suspected.

That should say enough, but unfortunately, most doctors recommend ultrasounds regardless, and the consequences are growing. Ultrasounds have been linked to:

  • Overheating in bone, tissue and fluid
  • Brain damage
  • Smaller birth weight
  • Higher miscarriage rates
  • Higher chance of “left-handedness”, particularly in males, which is linked to brain damage
  • Slowed or stuttered speech
  • Higher risk of learning difficulties
  • More premature or later births

 

4. VACCINES DON'T HAVE ANY SIGNIFICANT SIDE EFFECTS.

It's no secret vaccines have their enemies. The number of parents who aren't vaccinating their kids is growing, and there are good reasons for this.

This link has a list of vaccines and the known side effects for each. They range from:

  • redness or swelling
  • poor appetite
  • fever
  • drowsiness
  • nausea/vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • and tenderness

to:

  • fainting
  • seizures
  • respiratory infections
  • yeast infections
  • Erythema (the rash associated with Lyme's disease)
  • blood in stools
  • pneumonia
  • and worse.

There has also been a huge rise in infant mortality rates. The United States has the highest in the world, along with the highest number of vaccinations. Furthermore, with the increase in vaccinations in recent years, there has been a marked increase in childhood health issues such as allergies, asthma, gut issues, chronic infections, serious brain damage (including autism), and learning and developmental issues such as ADD and ADHD.

Coincidence? Probably not.

The best thing to do is to educate yourself. This article is a good place to start, but the Internet is a vast place.

Do the research. Think wisely. Vaccines are rapidly producing resistant and warped strains of diseases rather than eliminating them, and can weaken already compromised immune systems in small children and the elderly.

Do we really want to give them to our kids?

 

5. CHEMOTHERAPY AND RADIATION ARE THE ONLY WAYS TO FIGHT CANCER.  This is a lie we see perpetrated every day. Here, at Nature's Finest Nutrition, we help innumerable scores of people fight cancer naturally through proper nutrition and supplementation, with and without the use other treatments, such as chemotherapy or radiation.

Cancer can be caused by a variety of issues, but there are several bodily issues that, were they in balance, would make it virtually impossible to produce cancer. Physically, every cancer patient in the world has a weakened pancreas, an acidic pH balance, a stunted immune system, and low cellular oxygen levels.

Chemo and radiation worsen all of the above conditions, giving the body an even harder time and a smaller chance of combating the disease itself. This is why cancer survivor rates are so low. Chemotherapy and radiation poison the body and cripple it, only to stave off cancer for a short period of time. It nearly always returns to claim its victim.

Therefore, by naturally boosting the immune system, oxygenating the blood, supporting the pancreas (and its production of cancer-fighting enzymes), balancing the pH, and giving the body nutrients it needs to do all of the above, the body can independently fight off diseases like cancer without chemo or radiation.

This is usually done in conjunction with a strict diet program of no sugar, processed foods, or meat, and only organic fruits, vegetables, seasonings, etc... The more you can afford to buy organic, the better. The body was designed to digest raw foods, not the processed, genetically-modified alternatives destroying our digestive systems and widening our waistlines.

By giving the body the nutrients it needs, it can focus on attacking invaders like cancer and other diseases, as it should.

 

6. SATURATED FATS ARE TOXIC TO THE BODY.

The belief that saturated fats raise your risk of heart disease by raising your cholesterol is widespread. In fact, it was this belief that sparked the low-fat diet craze in the seventies that is still prevalent today.

The simple truth is that low-fat diets are detrimental to the body, and high-fat diets are the complete opposite. They're beneficial to the body, and people who eat high amounts of saturated fats weigh less, live longer, and are more satisfied after meals, and therefore less prone to over-eat.

The belief that saturated fats increase LDL (bad cholesterol) levels in the body is also incorrect. Instead, saturated fats increase the size of LDL particles, which renders them harmless.

Low-fat diets do the opposite, dimininshing the size of LDL particles in the blood stream and therefore making them dangerous to the body.

 

7. DEPRESSION AND OTHER MENTAL DISORDERS ARE CAUSED BY CHEMICAL IMBALANCES WITHIN THE BRAIN. There has never been any evidence to support the idea that depression and other mental disorders are caused by a chemical imbalance within the brain.

In fact, the only reason this hypothesis has gained as much traction as it has is due to the fact that in the 1950's, neurotransmitters such as seratonin and dopamine were found to have beneficial effects on people with depression and other mental disorders.

Therefore, the medical and scientific industry assumed that this must mean the brain had a deficiency in either of those neurotransmitters, and began prescribing them as the answer for these so-called "chemical imbalances."

WebMD says this, "...Although it is widely believed that a serotonin deficiency plays a role in depression, there is no way to measure its levels in the living brain. Therefore, there have not been any studies proving that brain levels of this or any neurotransmitter are in short supply when depression or any mental illness develops."

 

8. IF YOU EAT WELL, YOU DON'T NEED DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS.

This one is completely false, and most of it goes along with the processes foods are put through before they ever arrive on our tables or in our stomachs.

Quite simply, the chemicals used in fertilizers, insect repellents, and preservation destroy any nutritional value in modern foods. Antibiotics, growth hormones, and GMOs are at fault, as well. Our bodies have to work harder to digest artificial foods, and often, most foods are only partially digested. 

This results in weakened digestive systems which cannot absorb nutrients properly, provided there are nutrients to be absorbed to begin with!

Cooking (particularly in microwaves) can destroy a large portion of vitamins and minerals even in organic foods, which can be days, if not weeks old by the time they arrive in stores, let alone your pantry. In addition, frequent alcohol and coffee consumption, smoking, and oral contraceptives inhibit the body's ability to absorb vitamins and minerals in food, and can damage the digestive system.

As a result, a large portion of the population suffers from vitamin and mineral deficiencies and doesn't know it. They believe they can get the nutrients from their food, but as shown above, this feat is growing harder and harder to accomplish.

This makes supplementation essential. Without it, our bodies will continue on a downward decline, unable to heal itself, and growing only more and more susceptible to illness and  disease.
