Vaccines: Unneeded and Unsafe

I was looking for a house in a new city in the company of a 50-ish realtor who was a very nice total stranger. Out of nowhere he began telling me about an unbelievable wide-awake nightmare that he had survived. One day, his lower legs and feet suddenly stopped working. He had lost all control and couldn’t depend on being able to stand on his feet while showing houses. He fell several times in front of clients before giving up the effort. As he turned into an invalid, he was devastated, as you can imagine. He saw one doctor after another. Eventually he found one who hit on a way to treat the condition. He’ll be able to walk but on medication for the rest of his life.

Why had it happened? There was only one possibility: the flu shot he had recently received.

My realtor’s near tragedy is only one of the millions of catastrophes that have occurred among U.S. citizens as the vaccine industry stays in high gear to sell it’s lucrative, liability free, poisons including it’s brand new profit center, Covid. Manufacturers are free of all responsibility for their products because of the agreement it insisted on with our spineless government: Big Pharma will only manufacture vaccines if it gets to keep all the profits while the government pays for all the calamities it causes. It’s a risk free proposition for Big Pharma and it eliminates any incentive to create a safe product.

Vaccines are very big business for Big Pharma, Bill Gates, the media and the government, including CDC. Everyone gets richer when you are scared into getting vaccinated yourself or getting your kids vaccinated against an ever-increasing list of rare and remote maladies. Most vaccines are for conditions like Covid and the flu, diseases that the human immune system easily handles. Others, like polio and the childhood diseases, are virtually extinct among the native population. There are many insgnificant diseases which are not serious although they get serious advertising hype.

What is serious are the life destroying side effects of vaccines and the government and media’s inexcuseable cover up.

Take autism, for example. Autism is a tragedy for every child and every family afflicted. Parents have been indicting vaccines as a cause of autism for years. What they get is the opposite of the attention they deserve. The number of vaccines that infants and toddlers are subjected to has increased annually beyond all reason.

It’s beyond imagining to think that new babies and young children need dozens, or any, vaccines. It shows the utter lack of respect that Big Pharma, Big Medicine and the government have for the God-given miracle of the human body. And it shows the unbelieveable arrogance and indifference of health care providers to babies and to the anguish of mothers and fathers.

But not all medical professionals dismiss the sometimes horrific affects of vaccines.

The scientists who accurately understand and try to communicate the impact that vaccines can have are driven out of science; their livelihoods and their research turned to dust, by forces that have great interest in their own power but no interest in public health – people like Anthony Fauci and Bill Gates.

Dr. Judy Mikovits is a brilliant researcher you have never heard of for that reason. When she was proving that vaccines resulted in Sudden Infant Death in babies, autism in toddlers, and laid the groundwork for a sad array of late stage problems, like alzheimers and pancreatic cancer, the government-funded powers in charge of her research caught on to the damage her conclusions would do to Big Pharma and government liability. She was dismissed from her job, arrested, jailed, and silenced. She found the government, the courts, the media and politicians – all of the Deep State – opposed to the dissemination of her findings. Other scientists were co-opted with threats to stay away from her. Through it all, she refused to compromise the unfolding life or death truth she was uncovering.

Extending Your Life Expectancy: The Autoimmune Diseases

Everything that attacks the body from external sources, like viruses (HIV/Aids, Spanish flu), bacteria (the plague), or the environment (cancer, asthma) are diseases. Diseases alert the immune system to defend against them to preserve the body.

When the body’s immune system goes haywire and reacts by attacking the body instead of defending it, the condition is internal to the body. It is an autoimmune response that is the body’s way of protesting it’s treatment. The autoimmune conditions can take virtually any form. There are approximately 80 of them and counting, including diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and MS.

Why the body would decide to destroy itself is a medical mystery. But, pharmaceuticals to the rescue. An astounding number of massively profitable drugs, such as Enbrel, Humira, Ozembic, are directed at persons with chronic, autoimmune diseases. These drugs work by disabling the immune system so that the symptoms stop. Have you listened to the list of possible side effects that Big Pharma is legally required to include in its ads? Those side effects are not so much incidental as they are a part of the drug itself. Disabling the God-given immune system is a dangerous, desperate, fearsome undertaking. How many users of these drugs are aware of the risk they assume? How many people have died after their immune systems have been compromised by these drugs? Too many for Big Pharma to acknowledge.

The point of this article is to make sure you know that there is another way of responding to autoimmune conditions, and it’s not lethal.

Extending Your Life Expectancy – Allergies

I talked to her mother at the local coffee shop, as she waited for her 20-year old-daughter to finish her 8th surgery for a condition none of her doctors had been able to identify. The girl was always sick, she said, and the surgeries didn’t seem to help. Her parents were scared to death she’d die before anyone figured it out.

She was eventually found to be sensitive to the perfumes in virtually everything she touched – deodorants, soap, shampoo, cleaning supplies.

I met her in a class one night. She couldn’t talk without her vocal cords going into a spasm, which meant she was without a voice. Her doctors said it was the most unusual case they’d seen and, over and over, recommended surgery. She’d had 6 surgeries so far and was scheduled for another.

She finally found that a common anti-spasmodic – ordinary ginger- ended her problem without actually identifying it.

He lost his voice suddenly one day. The doctors said his vocal cords looked fine. They didn’t know what happened or how to fix it. He was a school teacher.

His problem ended when his wife had a sudden insight and told him to stop taking the prescription statin. His life returned to normal within days.

Each of these had undiagnosed allergic reactions to a constant irritant that no one suspected. Once they figured out the allergy and began avoiding the source, their health returned. To a person, their doctors refused to believe the latest surgery or pharmaceutical had not been responsible for their return to health. None of them had ever heard of allergies causing such a problem. All of these one-time patients had their health back along with a newfound disregard for ‘experts’, and a new respect for the power their own human body, as well as a new respect for ancient remedies.

The medical profession seems to believe allergies begin and end with pollen or poison ivy, including the allergist physicians who should know better. The truth is that you can be allergic to anything. Food, perfumes, plants, things you touch, things you smell, and those allergies can impact your body and your life in limitless ways. Horrifically, they can also cause sudden death due to anaphylaxis, a sudden, violent allergic reaction that causes all organs in the body to shut down simultaneously.

The one medical guarantee is that doctors won’t understand any of it. With their medical education and virtually all articles in their professional journals subsidized by Big Pharma, they are taught believe that pills are the one hope for your health.

Allergies have their own ways of showing up, and when your symptoms don’t fit into any of a doctor’s diagnostic boxes, they will bend the corners of your ailment until they fit into a familiar surgical or pharmaceutical category. Then, they can solve your problem by recommending a surgery or a drug. Drug companies reward doctors for prescribing their costly, deadly, products.

With a little luck, if you survive one physician’s toxic and useless remedies, you will live to repeat the process with the next physician. Sooner or later, if you survive, you will take control of your own health. You will begin checking natural remedies on the internet, trying them out, and being flabbergasted at the magic they can work, almost free of charge and rarely at a threat to your life.

For example: Ginger, standard spice rack ginger, is a very effective anti-spasmodic. That means that it is a risk-free remedy for asthma, as well as hiccups. It means you don’t need to take cortisone with it’s deadly side effects to get relief.

Suffer from migraines? No need to risk your life taking expensive, heart-stopping, heavily advertised drugs. The botanical ‘feverfew’, available in the vitamin aisle, taken daily, will get rid of them for good.

Got nail biters in the family? They need much more vitamin B and magnesium than they’re getting.

Bruise easily? Not if you’re taking enough vitamin C, which can also ward off the common cold and who knows what other ailments.

As traditional antibiotics lose their effectiveness due to over prescribing, there is a natural antibiotic with nearly magical powers: Garlic. Taken in high doses, it can kill off numerous germs with no threat to your life or wallet.

Please note that nothing I’ve mentioned here is effective in one small dose, the kind you get in multivitamins. For therapeutic benefit, the vitamin or biologic has to be taken daily in doses high enough to be healing. There is a danger in extremely high doses of the fat soluble vitamins, A, E, and D. Those vitamins are not sold in health-threatening doses.

The vitamins that are not fat-soluble, B and C, are water-soluble. That means that they wash harmlessly out of your system every day in your urine.

There is a side effect to extremely high dose vitamin C. It causes diarrhea when the body has more than it can handle. That’s all. It’s not going to kill you and you can solve the problem by taking a little less. That doesn’t sound like the dangers advertised for pharmaceuticals, does it?

No discussion of allergies would be complete without acknowledging some very serious, mostly hidden, food allergens

If you feel miserable almost every day and you’ve ruled out most other things chances are you are have problems with the common allergen soy, which is almost always genetically modified.

Soy, like corn, is a crop subsidized by the government. Because farmers know that planting soy will always be profitable, they fill their fields with it. They plant much more than can be exported or used efficiently here at home. The solution to prevent big surpluses? Cut the price domestically and sell it to every food manufacturer. Because of it’s low cost, food processors are happy to comply and add it to everything possible. It’s hard to find a bakery product that doesn’t contain soy as do many other products. Would you ever suspect that many brands of ice cream are similarly contaminated? It’s everywhere. If you suspect a soy allergy, you should get used to reading food labels.

There are new, cost saving ingredients that appear constantly. One is malted barley flour. It’s generally a new addition to baked goods and is not included in some organic products. Be aware of its allergenic potential.

Allergies have the potential to do everything from limiting life to killing. A great many deaths are attributed to heart attacks but occur in people who have no heart disease. Are those deaths a testament to the power of allergies?

Allergies are entirely individual and identifying them is also individual. No one can do it for you, which is OK since you know that your health is your responsibility.

Extending Your Life Expectancy: The Food Supply

Life expectancy in the U.S. has been declining for several years and the numbers show no sign of reversing. CDC spokesmen say that their best explanation of the cause are suicides and the so-called opioid epidemic. A look at the numbers quickly shows this speculation to be a fantasy. Even a few thousand additional deaths in both categories will not move the needle in country with almost 3 million deaths a year.

No one admits to knowing the reason(s) for the decline, but there are people with much better guesses. Because their conclusions blame Big Business and not the dead victims, they do not get the media’s attention.

I’ve used other columns to warn about dirty and sloppy hospitals; indifferent, incompetent, and sometimes malicious medical staff; and, above all, the (criminal) pharmaceutical industry and their heavily advertised and often lethal poisons that they sell as ‘medicine’.

As life expectancy in the U.S. continues to drop, this column is about extending your own personal life expectancy by using better information about food. Coming columns will discuss pervasive and commonly ignored serious maladies, like allergies, and what to do about them.

The first thing to remember when trying to explain declining life expectancies is something that goes far toward explaining everything else: American capitalism and the profit motive. Effective oversight by elected or appointed officials could render our form of capitalism safer, but there is none.

Big Business finds no impediment anywhere, at least in the U.S., to buying its own way to greater profits. That usually means so-called campaign contributions to elected officials to control regulations, and endless prime time advertising to control public opinion. Sometimes a pharmaceutical ad airs next to an ad by lawyers who are suing them for damages. Attorneys, and their own profit motive, may turn out to be our best hope for reining in the destruction caused by Big Business. That is undoubtedly why Big Business is anxious to make an upper limit on awards mandatory.

Take RoundUp herbicide, for example. This very effective weed killer has been a stellar money maker for Monsanto (Bayer) while causing carnage to the people who use it as well as to the environment. Monsanto has recently begun losing lawsuits from cancer victims who believe RoundUp was responsible for their disease.

Studies have shown that almost everyone in America has glyphosate, the active ingredient in RoundUp, in their tissues. It poses a special danger to babies and toddlers.

Glyphosate residues have been found in tap water, orange juice, children’s urine, breast milk, chips, snacks, beer, wine, cereals, eggs, oatmeal, wheat products, and most conventional foods tested. It’s everywhere, in brief.

Attorney for victim: “It is clear from Monsanto’s actions that it does not care whether Roundup causes cancer, focusing instead on manipulating public opinion and undermining anyone who raises genuine and legitimate concerns about Roundup.”
F. William Engdahl
Global Research, April 27, 2019

Agricultural chemicals, including antibiotics in meat and, increasingly, in farmed fish are not the only contributors to America’s polluted food supply. Read any list of ingredients on a processed food and you’ll find a list of dyes, taste enhancers, preservatives, emulsifiers, and more. Food additives are never tested for safety before being unleashed on the public, the unsuspecting guinea pigs. They are withdrawn from grocery store shelves only after their toxicity becomes clear and Big Business is forced to relent. Monsanto is not relenting on RoundUp, however. The damages it may be forced to pay won’t put a dent in the CEOs bonus.

Here is a good source, slightly outdated, for explaining additives, what they do, and how safe they are:

chemical additives in food

The list is too comprehensive to include here but if you’d like to know exactly what you and your family are eating, look it over.

And then there is all the genetic modification (GMO) going on with no notice to consumers. Food processors have fought hard to make sure we stay in the dark, and our mass media, regulatory agencies and lawmakers have all been willing to comply with BigAg and ignore our demands for transparency.

There’s that capitalism problem again.

GMO means altering DNA seeds to resist disease, grow bigger or faster, look nicer, or any other reason BigAg can come up with. I’d include a list of foods at the grocery store that have been silently genetically modified, but the list is too long. For a look at a list that is a bit out of date, because it doesn’t include potatoes, go to:

There has been no long term study of the results of tampering with nature, but the results of research by independent scientists isn’t good. Monsanto, Dow, and BigAg use their propaganda machines to try to tell us that there is nothing to fear, and then use their banks of attorneys to overturn local decisions to ban GMOs. Cultivation of any kind of GMO has been banned in many European countries and in Russia.

Here is more information:
GMOs

and

info@thetruthaboutcancer.com

And then there is the gas that is used in packaged meat, and who knows what else, so that it maintains its fresh appearance no matter how old it is.

I hope by this time you are committed to buying organic, which by law has none of these problems. Big Business is trying hard to change that. Organic food is getting very popular, easier to find and cheaper. It may not always be a perfect choice but it is light years better than non-organic.

Here is what’s happening with organic in the U.S.: https://www.organicconsumers.org

In addition to buying organic I have one other suggestion: Buy European foods when possible. Europeans are fussy about what is allowed in their food and anything genetically modified has a rough time being allowed in and accepted by consumers. Europeans have a media that keeps them informed about such things, which puts their level of awareness far ahead of Americans.

Do I think our tainted food supply has anything to do with declining life expectancy in the U.S.? You bet. Don’t you?

The Polio Vaccine and ‘Acute Flaccid Paralysis’

There is a new childhood disease capturing attention in the U.S. It looks and acts just like the ‘acute flaccid paralysis’ of polio but the polio virus is missing so it’s named ‘nonpolio acute flaccid paralysis’ (NPAFP). The disease is nothing to be taken lightly. One-third of child victims are permanently paralyzed and roughly 10% die, twice the toll of polio.

The disease may seem unusual to Americans but it is well known, and well researched, in India where researchers have identified the polio vaccine as the responsible agent in nonpolio paralysis.

India had it’s last polio case in 2011 and the World Health Organization declared the country to be polio free in 2014. But eradication campaigns continue unabated to this day. Want to know why? India’s Ministry of Health explains:

India has maintained a high vigil and ensured that no complacency sets in order to maintain the polio-free status for the last more than 4 years. It has taken appropriate actions to ensure high population immunity …

In other words, despite the nonexistence of the disease, the polio vaccine remains a childhood staple, just in case. Because polio might show up suddenly from – where? The researchers in India found that the number of NPAFP cases was strongly related to the number of doses of polio vaccine a child received. Although no amount of vaccine is totally safe, the greater the total dosage, the higher the risk. In places where the administration of the polio vaccine declined, rates of NPAFP did also. India now records about 50,000 new cases a year and currently has an estimated 491,000 affected children.

Despite the well-researched documentation from India, when NPAFP showed up in the U.S. it was presented to the public as something new and never seen before. Which might seem a little disingenuous since we all have access to the same publications.

The disease started later and affected fewer, so far, in the U.S. probably because India uses an oral polio vaccine (OPV) with a live virus, and the US and most of the rest of the world use a killed, inactivated vaccine called ITV. The OPV form is now being phased out worldwide in favor of the ITV vaccine but, judging from the increasing number of childhood victims in the U.S., that apparently won’t solve the problem.

Nonpolio acute flaccid paralysis in the U.S. started appearing in medical publications in 2014. By 2018 the number of children with paralysis was causing increasing alarm. Given the published information available linking the polio vaccine with nonpolio paralysis, the cause of the problem has been identified. CDC, however, continues to insist on a multi dose polio vaccine for a nonexistent disease. When the evidence is ignored, what chance to we have to protect our children?

Here’s an idea: Parents should continue to take the lead and insist on a reasonable vaccine schedule. Stop vaccinating for nonexistent diseases. Consider eliminating vaccines altogether or make them voluntary since they are both dangerous and largely unnecessary.

Polio has not occurred among U.S. citizens since 1979. It was eradicated in the U.S. about the same time smallpox was eradicated world wide. Once a disease has ceased to exist, the only danger is from the vaccine itself. And ALL vaccines carry dangers.

The fact that there was no smallpox anywhere in the world did not stop the U.S. military from insisting that everyone going to Afghanistan in 2001 receive a smallpox vaccination. One of the results was the sudden death in Afghanistan of journalist David Blum who succumbed to a blood clot that the media blamed on the long plane ride. Opinion was different at the CDC where it was quietly whispered that the death was probably due to the smallpox vaccine and it’s well-known side effects.

It is unknown how many other Americans in Afghanistan were affected, like David Blum, by the consequences of a vaccine for a nonexistent illness.

Since no official statistics are available – by design – for vaccine injuries, it is unknown how many people have their lives diminished or ended by the unexamined, unresearched effects of vaccines.

Paul Allen: Another Tragic Death from ‘Complications’

Recently Paul Allen, the cofounder of Microsoft, died at age 65 from – you guessed it – complications’.

‘Complications’ are medical speak for ‘we’re responsible but we don’t want you to know’. ‘Complications’ can’t be officially listed as a cause of death because it isn’t one.

The death certificate tells the story.

Paul Allen died of septic shock, or sepsis, a common blood infection and cause of death in hospitals, and entirely man-made by hospital staff. Although hospitals and doctors would like you to believe sepsis is an act of God, as in ‘the immune system caused all the problems’, the truth is that the hospital introduced a bug into the victim, which happens regularly when hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, doctor’s’ offices abandon sterile procedures. When they cause MRSA, sepsis or any other deadly hospital infection, and the resulting infection over powers the immune system, the victim dies. According to the hospitals’ records, the cause of death is the victims immune system,
not their own procedures.

The amount of sepsis in hospitals is chilling. CDC estimates that hundreds of thousands of deaths occur in hospitals each year and that sepsis is responsible for 1 in three of them.

That, of course, doesn’t include those who died outside a hospital from an infection caused in the hospital, and it doesn’t include the vast number of deaths that are hidden in other diagnoses. For example, a 26 year old  died of sepsis within days of getting the flu shot as the blood infection caused the organs in her body to quickly shut down.

CDC attributed her death to the flu. And then doubled down by insiting the public get the current version of the profoundly useless flu shot.

To make the flu shot, Big Pharma has to decide 3 years in advance what their guess will be about the ever mutating version that will strike in several years. Then they concoct an antidote, manufacture millions of doses, package and distribute it, and work with CDC to sell it. It rarely addresses the problem it’s supposed to, and it’s rarely acknowleged to be the failure it is.

The flu shot is almost never anything that could remotely be called a success.

The only reason CDC has any interest in the flu vaccine is that it is an annually recurring bonanza as a source of funding from Big Pharma.

Did you think the Centers for Disease Prevention and Health Promotion was committed to you and your family by taxpayer funding? Not so. In fact, CDC has a division dedicated to reimbursing people for injuries caused by vaccines (Vaccine  Adverse Events Reporting System). Since the drug companies have no responsibility, by law, for the safety and/or effectiveness of their product, your tax dollars, along with contributions to CDC from Big Pharma, of course, fills the void and reimburses a few of the injured for the sometimes horrific consequences of vaccines.

Paul Allen had no idea when he entered the hospital for treatment of a long standing illness that within only a few days he would be included in the hospitals’ mortality statistics, a victim of the hospital itself.

Death From Complications

Eagles co-founder Glenn Frey has died from what was reported as ‘complications of rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis and pneumonia.’

Huh?  There is no mortality code called ‘complications’ in the recently updated International Classification of Disease, which lists all causes of death.

Pneumonia may have been present but it didn’t kill Mr. Frey. If it had, it would be listed first.

Nor were rheumatoid arthritis and ulcerative colitis the killers. Rheumatoid arthritis and ulcerative colitis are autoimmune conditions caused by an immune system gone awry. Instead of performing its assigned job and protecting us from bacteria, viruses and other hazards, the immune system goes rogue and attacks. Unhappy conditions as they are, rheumatoid arthritis and ulcerative colitis are not diseases, they are disorders, like Downs Syndrome or autism, and kill no one.

So why did Glenn Frey die?

With amazing frequency, obituaries identify unexplained ‘complications’ as the cause of death. Loosely translated, that generally means that the people who know don’t want you to.

There are good reasons for that. So unsafe is the entire medical industry that the word ‘complications’ is often a synonym for injury or death caused by incompetence, malpractice or pharmaceuticals. Although the number of deaths due to medical error has been estimated at 440,000, which would make it the third leading cause of death in the U.S, several in-depth reviews of medical records have shown that number to be woefully under reported. That’s because

– Some medical errors don’t come to light until an autopsy
– Medical records routinely fail to show all adverse drug events
– Physicians often refuse to report medical harm done to their patients

Medical errors are based only on hospital records, which means that injury or death occurring once the patient has left the hospital is not included in the figures.   Also, all harm that does not cause death, estimated at 10 to 20 times the  number of deaths, is ignored in the official figures.  Hundreds of thousands of former patients live daily with the life-dimming consequences of our medical system and their misplaced faith in the American medical establishment.

The truth is that medical injuries are probably the leading cause of death in the U.S. That would help to explain why the average healthy life span of Americans is stagnating while other Western countries continue to show advances.

Studies done by the Department of Health and Human Services indicate that American citizens pay $88 billion every year in Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements to patch up the results of medical malfeasance. Other studies have estimated the total cost of medical error at 10% of total health care spending, or roughly $300 billion.

Hospital infections are among the most easily prevented injuries to patients, since they require little more than hand washing and sterile equipment. They are also the most common and alone raise the cost of hospitalization by as much as 50%.

Although many hospitals would prefer you to believe that medical harm is just the cost of doing business, it is not. There are hospitals that have made major strides in ensuring the safety of their patients.
So maybe it’s time for someone to go off the rails of political correctness and say it: The prevalence of infections and other in- hospital errors is a silent testament to the indifference and apathy of too many hospitals and medical staff. The rise in deadly strains of bacteria, like MRSA and C Diff, is a silent testament to the consequences of their apathy.

It appears that most hospitals are so unsafe that they should be closed for the protection of the public, as restaurants may be.

So what killed Glenn Frey? He had rheumatoid arthritis and ulcerative colitis, two autoimmune conditions treated with a class of drug called TNF (tumor necrosis factor) inhibitors which include Embrel, Humira, and numerous others. Those drugs are heavily advertised for an increasing number of conditions related to immune system dysfunction.

If a disorder is caused by the action of the immune system, we feel much better if we disable it. And that’s what these drugs do. But there is a huge price to pay for weakening the immune system. Without an immune system a person has no resistance to cancer or opportunistic infections like pneumonia.

The ‘complication’ causing Glenn Frey’s death was the prescription drugs that had been prescribed for his autoimmune conditions. There are natural, magical, alternatives that he never heard about from his doctors.  It didn’t have to happen.

CLINICAL TRIALS, RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES, PAID STUDIES : MAYBE NOT

A side effect of Rheumatoid Arthritis is the number of solicitations we get asking us to participate in efforts, called clinical trials, to validate new drugs for FDA approval. A clinical trial is an experiment on human volunteers to determine the effectiveness of a drug that manufacturers are required to undertake to justify it’s retail sale. Participants are given an ‘investigational drug’ designed to alleviate their disease in some way. Their physical responses to the drug, good or bad, are closely monitored. They sign a consent form guaranteeing that Big Pharma will not be held responsible for any negative effects of the experiment.

Should they volunteer?

Clinical trials for a drug called Tenovir, designed for use as a preventive for HIV infection, were halted in Cambodia and other developing countries when unexpectedly sophisticated local activists shut the program down.

The Arrogance of Modern Medicine

Here is one person’s view. Do you agree?

===================================================================

Michelle Kmiec
Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

“Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius — and a lot of courage — to move in the opposite direction.” Albert Einstein 1879 –1955

The medical establishment, lost in the false belief that they “know best”, have become blind to the obvious statistics of harm that drugs and needless surgeries cause. Ironically, they are quick to label anything outside their dogma quackery and pseudoscience; such as Holistic Medicine. And sadly, when those in the holistic medicine arena challenge this ignorant concept, the challenger is often dismissed as a “brainwashed sham artist” or an “uneducated idiot” without really being heard.

When did such arrogance become so deeply entrenched in our professed superior modern society? When reading the history of medicine we laugh at what was once widely thought to be effective medicine. Surely we have not regressed back to the close-mindedness of the Dark Ages Inquisition, dismissing any contrary opinion as heresy.

Outcry for a Change

In today’s world, there seems to be an outcry for a change in healthcare, and I’m not speaking about the healthcare we hear about in politics. No, I’m speaking of health care as opposed to disease care.

If modern evidence based medicine, which is based on testing and observing, thus, “proving” the effectiveness of treatments, is so successful in its fundamental premise, why are people sicker than ever? Shouldn’t the opposite be occurring? Especially here in the USA, the self-proclaimed most advanced country in the world of medicine!

Thousands of people a day die from our conventional medical care and, yet there are basically zero outcries from the ‘skeptics’ of natural health care medicine. As though in some sort of trance, they simply repeat the same mantras against alternative care…“it’s quackery care”… which is, mind you, the very thing they accuse alternative advocates of doing: chanting mantras against Evidence Based Medicine (EBM)!

Furthermore, despite the mounting presence of evidence that is in favor of natural health care, they nonetheless bury their collective head into the ground in denial, but not without first crying “but it’s still quackery!”
Scrutiny of Modern Medicine

An intelligent person should be asking why modern medicine is not subjected to the same scrutiny that “alternative” medicine constantly is, especially when the failures of modern medicine are resulting in more and more needless deaths, not to mention the very diseases they are supposedly fighting against are statistically getting worse.

So if the health and well-being of the community isn’t benefiting, then what else can it be?

Money? What is a person’s life worth anyway?

We all have heard of horror stories of injuries caused by a medical doctor, but we excuse it for some reason. Well, a major reason is because we aren’t even able to sue a medical doctor for negligence, as such legal actions (aka. “Frivolous Lawsuits”) were blamed for higher insurance premiums. Of course, in the relatively rare event (as compared to medical doctor’s accidents) when an injury occurs with a chiropractor or holistic practitioner, it becomes a front page stoning by the so-called skeptics. Of course they are chanting, “Quack, sham artist, lack of evidence based medicine, etc”.

The hypocrisy is truly mind blowing!

A good example is comparing a chiropractic “adjustment” to an osteopathic “adjustment”. Although, oddly enough, despite the years of training and expertise of a chiropractor, for some reason (beyond logical belief) skeptics proclaim that a spinal “adjustment” is safer when an osteopath does the procedure then the chiropractor; especially when referring to the neck. In other words, chiropractic = quackery; whereas, osteopath = safe.

Let me ask the obvious question here. If it is quackery and unsafe, wouldn’t that exact procedure still be quackery no matter who delivers the adjustment? Moreover; don’t osteopaths receive substantially less training in adjusting or manipulation techniques than chiropractors?

Who would you trust?

Aren’t you glad people are finally waking up and realizing the truth?

A Diet for Rheumatoid Arthritis: The 3-Day Phenomenon

As we struggle with swollen joints, fatigue, doctor’s appointments, prescriptions, and trying to process more information than we ever wanted about Rheumatoid Arthritis, it’s nearly impossible to believe that we can be well and healthy again in less than a week.

But it is true.

There is a huge amount of scientific evidence going back decades, as well as innumerable personal stories indicating that Rheumatoid Arthritis is linked directly to foods that our immune systems have come to believe are toxins.

Alas! Although dietary changes will eliminate all symptoms of RA, there is no magic bullet. Each person has to discover his or her own foods to avoid.

Every person’s life experiences and resulting physiology are individually unique, as are the dietary triggers for inflammation, which is what causes the pain, joint swelling and destruction of Rheumatoid Arthritis. It is also the underlying condition in many other disorders. Our immune systems are, for reasons yet unknown, miraculously exclusive to each of us and each person has to learn for him/her self what their own personal triggers are.

How to learn? That part is fairly simple.
