As of February 4, 2021, the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) had received 12,697 injury reports and 653 deaths following COVID-19 vaccination.1
Of the cases reported between December 14, 2020, and February 4, 2021, 3.69% were life threatening and the number of deaths account for 5.14% of the total reports. The Pfizer vaccine accounted for 58% of deaths; Moderna’s accounted for 41%.
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.
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.
TV personality Deborah Norville said that her mother died prematurely “from Rheumatoid Arthritis.”
With all due respect to Ms Norville, no one dies from RA. Like osteoarthritis and many other non-fatal conditions among the genetically susceptible (e.g., Down’s Syndrome, mental illnesses), RA is more a disorder and less a disease.
All of us who live with the condition will die ‘with RA’ just as we will die ‘with a liver’, ‘with a brain’, ‘with fingernails.’ RA is not in the same mortality category as diabetes or stroke, leading causes of death listed on death certificates.
Nevertheless, Rheumatoid Arthritis can be a contributing factor to death from other causes, generally inflammation-related, but one is hard pressed to find any records listing RA as a cause of death by itself. In this list of annual causes of mortality, RA is conspicuously absent.
Any number of studies have concluded that those of us with Rheumatoid Arthritis are doomed to die several years before we would otherwise, usually, they say, from cardiovascular disease (CVD). In vanishingly rare instances inflammation resulting from the disease attacks a vital organ like the heart and the patient may die. Even then the cause of death is inflammation officially coded, for example, as ‘pericarditis,’ not Rheumatoid Arthritis.
It’s clear that a major problem is inflammation. But it’s not the only problem. The other big cause of death for us is the drugs we take, both over the counter and prescription.
