The Tetanus PUSH

baby-boobooA child falls and cuts themselves on a fairly clean object. A parent takes them to the ER or Urgent Care for stitches. The staff ask if they are up-to-date on vaccines, and then PUSH hard to give a “tetanus” shot. Parent declines, and the staff threatens to call CPS or a social worker.

If you ever find yourself in this situation, this is what you need to know:

  1. Tetanus bacteria, known as Clostridium tetani, is an anaerobic bacteria, meaning it can’t survive in oxygenated environments. If the wound being treated is bleeding, or has bled, there is extremely low likelihood of tetanus infection.
  2. Just because you get cut on metal (rusty or not) it doesn’t automatically mean there is tetanus bacteria present. Tetanus is primarily found in soil or manure.
  3. Even if there was a deep puncture wound that did not bleed that was caused by an object that had tetanus bacteria on it, giving a tetanus vaccination AFTER the exposure is of no value. The vaccine is not an “instant tetanus killer”; it is well known that the tetanus vaccine takes about two weeks for the body to produce antibodies against tetanus. Giving a ‘tetanus shot’ after an injury provides no benefit.
  4. If there were serious concerns about tetanus exposure (a deep non bleeding wound in a farm-like environment with a lot of exposure to manure) then the ONLY thing that could help (other than allowing the wound to bleed, if possible, and cleaning the wound with soap and water or hydrogen peroxide) would be the TiG shot (tetanus immunoglobulin) which is an anti-toxin, not a vaccine. If you agree to a TiG shot, be sure to examine the box or vial BEFORE they inject it – nurses have been known to ‘mistakenly’ give the DTaP but tell you they are giving TiG.
  5. There is no ‘tetanus only’ vaccine available in the United States. When you are offered a ‘tetanus shot’ in an ER or by the doctor, they will administer either the DTaP or TDaP, depending on your age; a 3 in 1 cocktail vaccine consisting of Diphtheria, Tetanus & Pertussis (whooping cough) bacteria, and up to 625 mcg of aluminum.

As a strategy to support your claims, I highly recommend the following actions:

  1. Ask for (demand) the complete vaccine package insert for the DTaP/TDaP. Point out the ingredients, especially the aluminum. Point out the multiple adverse reactions that could potentially happen to your child if they inject this vaccine.
  2. Point out that neither the nurse, doctor, nor hospital can be held liable should any adverse event happen as a result of receiving the vaccine they are pushing.
  3. Ask for the contact information of the supervisor for each person pushing you to give this vaccine. Make a note of this information.
  4. Ask to speak to the patient liaison representative of the facility, or the supervisor on duty. Alternatively, phone your legal advisor.[1]
  5. File a complaint against all staff pushing the vaccine and seeking to involve social services. Bullying of parents needs to be noted so that it can be stopped.
  6. Use your cell phone to record all conversations.

This situation is happening every single day. I have personally learned about many children who experience significant vaccine injury from being pushed to accept the DTap in an ER. Even one shot can cause a serious reaction.

Doctors should know this information, but often they don’t. Please don’t let their ignorance of tetanus push you to agree to a completely ineffective and potentially harmful strategy for your child.

If a medical establishment is threatening to call, or does call CPS, removal of your child is not a fait accompli – you need to remain diplomatic and factual. Don’t be condescending or superior. The role of every CPS case worker is to investigate all complaints. In the face of a calm, rational parent, they have no reason to remove your child from your care. While it is understandable that any parent facing the threat of child removal may fell threatened and become angry, you will be much better protection for your child by restraining your strong emotions, rather than letting the CPS representative experience the full brunt of your anger!

Battling to protect our children can be extremely challenging. Facing up to the giant medical establishment is a daunting proposition. Don’t blow it by losing your cool. In your mind, imagine yourself as a calm attorney rationally presenting your case. You can’t lose because the facts and the science are on your side. However, if you become a raging emotional basket case, they will use that against you to push even harder to take your child away.

[1] “I say the best protection is a preexisting relationship with a friendly attorney. While at the hospital, call the attorney immediately on the first sign of trouble. When the social worker starts the bully routine, the first thing to say is that your attorney is already aware of the situation. If the social worker just wants to “interview” you, tell him or her that you’d love to answer their questions, but they should go through the proper legal channels, I.e. they should make the request for the interview through your attorney. If they are making immediate threats or issuing ultimatums, what to do depends on state law and the particular circumstances. In all cases when bringing a child to the hospital, bring a voice recording device in your pocket or purse and have it recording as soon as you get there. There are now free apps for this purpose available for your smart phone. This is the best and least intrusive way to document medical bullying.” Thomas M.

Did You Know…

Please watch the video – especially the segment starting a around 6 minutes where a doctor shares some of these startling facts.

  • The USA has had only 1 case of polio in the last 40 years. There is virtually a zero risk of contracting true debilitating polio in the USA today.
  • 1 million people hit deer in the USA last year and 200 of those people died from the collision.
  • Only five people died from Whooping Cough last year, and only one was under 12 months.
  • You are forty times more likely to die from hitting a deer than from contracting WC!
  • 1961-versus-2016-shotsFour million babies are injected at birth with the Hepatitis B vaccine but only 37-100 of their moms have Hepatitis B but don’t know it.
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield pays paediatricians $400 per child when they maintain a specific high percentage rate of children fully up-to-date on vaccines.
  • If a Doctor deviates from the CDC recommendations and the “standard of care” they could be at risk of losing their medical licence.
  • A “mandated reporter” is required by Federal and State law to report to CPS anyone who injects a child with the ingredients that a vaccine contains. Yet vaccines are considered safe.
  • Vaccine ingredients include: formaldehyde, aluminum, mercury, polysorbate 80, glutaraldehyde, 2-phenoxyethanol. bovine extract, sodium chloride, calf serum, lactalbumin hydrolysate, neomycin sulphate, polymyxin B, yeast protein, animal DNA fragments, human DNA fragments from aborted human fetal tissue.
  • The characteristics of autism and mercury poisoning are virtually identical.
  • A doctor who supports vaccine choice and informed consent by parents could lose around $700,000 per year by NOT giving vaccines.
  • Any doctor who disagrees or questions CDC regulations is labeled as a “Quack.”
  • The entire vaccine schedule recommended by the CDC has never been tested for safety.
  • This is the only industry in the USA that you can’t sue for faulty products. Since the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act was passed by Congress in 1986 all vaccine manufacturers have been protected.
  • The current CDC schedule recommends three times the number of shots that were recommended before the NCVIA of 1986 was passed.
  • Children are now recommended to receive 33 doses of vaccines in the first year of life; 50 doses of vaccines by the time they go to school; and 76 doses of 14 vaccines by the age of 18.

Gardasil Injury is REAL

diane-harper-on-hpvThere are so many similarities in all of these girls’ stories. They were pushed and bullied to get the Gardasil vaccine by a doctor they trusted. They were told “This vaccine will prevent you from getting cancer.” Don’t believe the marketing. This vaccine is harming girls on a grand scale. Every family must research the truth.

When these girls experienced severe reactions after the vaccine, all connection to the Gardasil shots were repeatedly denied by the medical professionals. These girls were in severe pain. Symptoms varied widely, and were horrific. Many of these girls were not able to get out of bed, not able to go to school, couldn’t walk, have serious ongoing digestive issues, and many other serious results. Seeking medical care resulted in multiple visits to doctors, specialists, and often psychiatrists because the conclusion was that all the symptoms were ‘just in their head’ or a result of stress. They call it “Conversion Disorder” because the many specialists cannot find a reason for the severe physical symptoms, but refuse to investigate the possibility that it could be caused by all the aluminum in the Gardasil vaccine, along with the other ingredients.

Any supposed ‘benefit’ from this shot is not worth the vast suffering that too many families have experienced as a result of Gardasil vaccine. This vaccine should be re-called immediately. Enough.

Meet the girls (and one boy) injured by Gardasil:

Jacqueline Duncan was a dedicated dancer; vibrant, healthy, full of energy and vitality. Now she spends most of her days in bed. She is in constant pain and has no energy. In 2011, while she was sick, she was pushed to get the Gardasil vaccine. The doctor said to her father, “So you want your daughter to get cancer?” She was given the 2nd shot in 2013. The doctors she saw while in extreme pain just treated her like it was all in her head. Today she is 19 years old and only recently learned about the reality of Gardasil injury syndrome impacting thousands of girls after they were injected. Gardasil injury damages the entire family.

Caitlyn Kerry was pushed into getting the Gardasil vaccine, but was never warned how drastic the changes in her life would be. She had all three of the Gardasil doses.  She just turned sixteen and her life has been totally derailed for the last two years. She was a Green Belt in Karate, walked extensively, enjoyed life, school and her family. Her mom is a special education teacher in the same high school. Now, she continues to struggle daily with severe pain, often confined to a wheelchair and severe seizures. She cannot walk, or do Karate.

Kerry Hughes, 15 was pushed and bullied to get the Gardasil shot in addition to the TDaP and Meningitis vaccines in 2013. The doctor assured her the only side effects would be a sore arm and maybe some dizziness. The reaction was progressive and gradual. Diagnosed with “conversion disorder” which is the medical way of saying, ‘it’s all in your head.’ She know experiences daily headaches, deep muscle pain, POTS,

Britt Fiste from Ohio eloquently describes her horrific experience of serious longterm disability caused by the Gardasil vaccine which she was pushed to get by the doctor at the age of 21. She had two of the three doses of Gardasil and now lives with constant pain. “Why can’t they admit that what they are doing is wrong? It shouldn’t be about money, it should be about human beings. The medical field was created to save lives, not destroy them, but this Gardasil vaccine is destroying lives.”

Leah, from Ohio, was 11 when she was given the Gardasil vaccine in 2013. She got all three doses, despite many many extreme side effects, all denied by the many doctors she visited.

Caitlin paid the ultimate price after years of horrific suffering brought on by the Gardasil vaccine. Her mom’s tells the full story to Polly in Atlanta.

Colton, from Utah, was also pushed to get the Gardasil shot. Gardasil is now recommended for boys from the age of nine. Colton was 13, healthy and strong. He received all three doses of the Gardasil vaccine. After the third dose he has a severe reaction which has changed his life forever. After the Gardasil injury he must wear this breathing apparatus permanently. Colton was hospitalised for 88 days with severe paralysis. His doctor did acknowledge the connection to the Gardasil vaccine and reported it to VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System). The doctors continue to try to get Colton and his mom to accept the flu vaccine.

Five years ago Jennifer, a 25-year-old married mother with a three-year old daughter, was bullied into accepting the Gardasil vaccine. She refused at first, but the nurse’s pitch that it was “Anti-Cancer” finally made her agree to receive it. Within 48 hours she was in the hospital. She didn’t make the connection to the Gardasil vaccine. After the third dose (yes, she got all three, never putting together the severe reaction she had to the first two) she has been continuously sick with seizures, vision loss, numbness, internal tremors, brain fog, insomnia, fatigue. Believing the doctors denials, it took the family two years to understand the connection of her extreme disability and the Gardasil vaccine.

Is Giving Multiple Vaccines at Once Safe?

seizure-babyMy goal is to educate parents so that this doesn’t happen to you. Please share with anyone you know who is pregnant or has a new baby. Sometimes grandparents also need an education. While it can be hard to educate those we love who may have different viewpoints, there are some strategies that are more effective than others.

Facts every parent needs to know:

  1. Not all babies handle vaccines well.
  2. The entire vaccine schedule has NEVER been tested for safety. Every day 2, 4, 6, 12, and 18 month old babies are injected with MULTIPLE vaccines, yet this combination has never been tracked or studied for safety given in this way. By 6 months a baby will receive 34 vaccines via 16 needles* containing 60 antigens. (See more: The USA/CDC Vaccine Schedule)

Please educate yourself on the safety and the risks versus benefits of vaccines BEFORE you need to. Learn about the reality of vaccine injury from parents who have personal direct experience. The following story was written in October 2016, from a mom who watched her daughter react to the shots given to her at the four month ‘well baby appointment.’

I was fine with Vaccines until my daughter got sick. She was perfectly healthy at birth and everything was fine. Her Pediatrician said she was just perfect. I took her to her 2 month appointment and she got her shots. After that I didn’t notice anything, or perhaps the symptoms weren’t so obvious. Anyways, we went on October 3 to her next doctor’s appointment and she got her 4 month shots. I already didn’t like how the nurse jabbed them in her thighs. We took her home afterward and put her down for a nap. When she woke up she was inconsolable. That’s when I noticed she was jerking. I thought it was from the pain and I did the best I could to comfort her. The jerking did not stop, and I kept thinking it would wear off. By Friday I decided to call the doctor and they told me at first it couldn’t have been the vaccines it had to be gas. No way. I called again and they told me to take her to the ER. So I did. Now after an EEG, MRI, and several labs for metabolic disorders and genetic testing, we are waiting for answers. Normal MRI. The labs are taking longer to come back. The EEG said that the jerks are myoclonic seizures. I personally think it’s the vaccines and in particular I think it’s the aluminum in the vaccines. That’s why we are waiting on a test for aluminum. What’s crazy is how hard we have to press them to do the test. They are convinced, because of her small size, she must have something else going on. Her head size is at the 5th percentile and her weight is at the 10th. Her height is normal. I think it was the vaccinations and how her body handles the aluminum. I’m going to have to do a lot of research now on vaccines. I’m so glad I found this group. I just thought I’d share my story. Still in the hospital. I will let you know what we find out. KAS, baby’s mom

The idea that giving so many vaccines at once could cause damage might be new to you. If you want to delay shots. You can. If you want to give less shots you can. You are the parent and have the right to decide what preventative medical treatments are best for your baby. If you decide to give any vaccine for any reason, please read this first so that you can try and minimise the impact on your precious baby. A paren’t most significant role is to protect the brain of their most vulnerable young infants.

*Sometimes vaccines are combined into a multiple combination such as PEDIARIX and INFANRIX, so the actual number of needles used could vary slightly.

 

The USA/CDC Vaccine Schedule

newborn skin to skin

What shots are recommended for my new baby?

What shots does my baby actually need?

Start your research with the first vaccines suggested for babies and the illnesses that you feel most concerned about and work through them all.

The current recommended shots for newborns in the first few hours of life in the USA are:

  1. Vitamin K
  2. Hepatitis B (1st of 3 doses).

At 2 months it is recommended that babies be vaccinated with:

  1. Hep B (2nd of 3 doses)
  2. Rotavirus (RV, 1st of 3 oral doses)
  3. Diptheria, Tetanus, & acellular Pertussis (DTaP, 3 different antigens, 1st of 5 doses)
  4. Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib, 1st of 3 or 4 doses)
  5. Pneumococcal conjugate (PVC13, 13 different antigens, 1st of 4 doses)
  6. Inactivated poliovirus (IPV, 1st of 3 doses)

That is a total of 8 vaccines (±5 needles*) with a total of 20 antigens given to a 2 month old baby regardless of size (how much they weigh) or gestation period (preemies through full-term babies are all given the exact same dose).

At 4 months it is recommended that your baby gets a repeat of all of the above, except Hep B for a total of 7 vaccines (±4 needles*) with 19 different antigens.

At 6 months there is a little flexibility, but your baby usually gets a repeat of all the vaccines given at 2 months:

  1. Hep B (3rd of 3 doses)
  2. Rotavirus (3rd of 3 oral doses)
  3. DTaP (3 different antigens, 3rd of 5 doses)
  4. Hib (3rd of 3 or 4 doses)
  5. PCV13 (13 different antigens, 3rd of 4 doses)
  6. IPV (3rd of 3 doses)

A total of 8 vaccines (±5 needles*) with 20 different antigens.

At 6 months a flu shot is also recommended. Babies are recommended to have two flu shots, four weeks apart, and thereafter they are recommended to have a flu shot every year of their life.  Each flu shot contains approximately 3 antigens, including the controversial H1N1. All multi-dose flu shots contains approximately to 25mcg of mercury in the form of thimerosal. The thimerosal in the flu shot and the aluminum in the other vaccines can stimulate synergistic toxicity. Flu shots have been shown by the Cochrane Collaboration (an up to date, detailed look at all the scientific evidence and research) to be ineffective in protecting young children from the flu.

By 6 months a cumulative total of 24 vaccines (±1 needles*) with 62 antigens is delivered to most babies. 

Most parents are not aware of how many shots nor what they contain. Many doctors are not even familiar with the ingredients in the vaccines and the possible adverse events to be aware of, yet they confidently assert that they are all safe. The combination of all these shots has never been tested for safety.

At 12 or 15 months your baby could be given:

  1. His (4th of 4 doses)
  2. PVC13 (13 antigens, 4th of 4 doses)
  3. Measles, Mumps & Rubella (MMR, 3 antigens, 1st of 2 doses)
  4. Varicella for Chicken Pox (VAR, 1st of 2 doses)
  5. Hepatitis A (HepA, 1st of 2 doses)

A total of 7 vaccines (±5 needles*) with 19 different antigens.

At 18 months your baby could be given:

  1. DTaP (4th of 5 doses)
  2. Hepatitis A (2nd of 2 doses)
  3. Flu Vaccine (yearly)

A total of 5 vaccines (±3 needles*) with 7 different antigens.

Before your  baby is two years old, the CDC says they need 36 vaccines against 14 different infections, delivered via 24 needles, and containing 91 different antigens.

Between 4 to 6 years children are recommended to get repeat boosters for

  1. DTaP (5th dose)
  2. Polio (4th dose)
  3. MMR (2nd dose)
  4. Varicella (2nd dose)

A total of 8 vaccines (±4 needles*) with 8 different antigens.

In total, by the time your child goes to school they will have received 46 doses of vaccines (±29 needles*) with 100 different antigens. These injections bombard the immature immune system which is expected to recognise and mount a specific defense against each one. See further CDC complete recommended vaccination schedule chart.[1]

Children are recommended to get additional vaccines at 11 years old: Meningococcal, TDaP (the adult form of DTaP, a ‘booster’), and HPV vaccine (3 doses). Please research these shots carefully before accepting them for your children at this very sensitive stage of life.

Some questions you might want to ask your doctor or any older people who are advising you to give your baby all the shots on the schedule on time;

  1. Why have there been so many vaccinations added since I was a child?
  2. What were the results of studies looking at the combined impact of all of these vaccines injected at the same visit? (To date there have been no studies on the combined cumulative impact of all these vaccines).
  3. If my baby has a serious reaction, who is responsible? How will I get medical care if it is needed? (The CDC, your doctor and all vaccine manufacturers have zero liability in the event of any bad reaction to vaccines given. The parents are 100% responsible for the risk of vaccine injury.)
  4. What signs should I be aware of after a vaccine that might suggest a bad reaction?
  5. How have doctors been trained to recognize vaccine reactions?
  6. Do you know how to report an adverse reaction to vaccines throuth VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System)?

One reason this information is overwhelming is because most of us got shots when we were children. We think the shots they want to give our babies are pretty much the same as what we had. We are not familiar with the current recommended schedule. Take some time to familiarise yourself with the schedule, with each disease, and the risks of having the disease versus the risk of the vaccine.

An additional factor to consider is that there have been no studies on the carcinogenic impact of most vaccines – i.e. is there a likelihood that this vaccine, or this combination of vaccines could increase childhood cancer rates? It has not been studied.

Additionally, vaccines have not been studied to determine if they will impact the future fertility of your child.

Hopefully this short summary has been helpful for you as you seek to navigate the maze of information to you on the BEST way to keep your baby safe and healthy. Many parents are shocked to realise the number of vaccines now recommended for children. Vaccines are NOT required for school attendance in 47 states. A religious exemption can be submitted by anyone regardless of your religious affiliation, or no religious affiliation. All states must accept a religious exemption in lieu of vaccines except CA, MS, and WV.

I know new parents need lots of sleep. They don’t need to be losing sleep because of fear about vaccinations. As you gain information on this subject, you will be able to make a confident decision so you can sleep peacefully at night! If you do decide to give your baby any vaccine for any reason, please read this first so that you can take some important steps to help protect your baby. Remember, the older the better, the heavier the better, the fewer the better.

Please post any questions below.

WARNING for Pregnant Women

pregnant-4-croppedPregnant? I am so glad you are here. If your doctor tells you “it is now time for a flu shot or a TDaP shot” and acts like it’s just a normal thing ALL pregnant women do, please ask them to bring the vaccine package insert (VPI) so that you can read it together. Go to “Section 8: Use in Specific Populations.” Read what it says regarding this vaccine in pregnancy. I have a VPI for Flucelvax which states that studies have been done on pregnant rabbits with no adverse impact noted. However, it also includes this:

There are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. Because animal reproduction studies are not always predictive of human response, this vaccine should be used during pregnancy only if clearly needed.

If your doctor continues to push you to get ANY vaccine, as a young mom, you might want to smile sweetly and say, “I’ll think about it. Can I take this (VPI) so I can study it? I also want to discuss it with my partner.” Pushing pregnant women to accept vaccines is a fairly new recommendation. Most women with children over the age of 10 are horrified that it is even happening.

A fellow vaccine truth activist, Stef Miharas, made a phone call to the FDA. This is what she found out:

Notice to all pregnant women: after an hour phone call with the FDA to check the CDC – this is what I was told! No vaccine – not FLU nor TDAP – is approved for use in pregnant women! The FDA is unwilling and unable to censor the CDC. The only one who can issue a public message is the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, Sylvia M. Burwell.  Since she is silent, she is either woefully uninformed (ignorant) or #bought! Any doctor who has not read and explained to you the entire package insert, which lists all possible adverse events and the cautions about use in specific population (i.e. pregnancy), is in non-compliance with the FDA! Call your elected officials! This must stop! #cdc #vaxxed #cdcwhistleblower

Attention pregnant women…here’s the TDaP (Boostrix) vaccine made by GSK. Find Section 8: Use in Specific Populations. While you have it open, you might want to stop by and read Section 5: Warnings and Precautions and Section 6: Adverse Reactions.

boostrix-vpi-cropped

You can read the full Boostrix vaccine package insert here.

Ironically, the HHS website clearly states their purpose “The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) protects the health of all Americans and provides essential human services, especially for those least able to…”. HHS is led by HHS Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell. Check out her biography here. She has two small children. Maybe she truly believes vaccines are good for pregnant women. If we all sent her an email, maybe she will change her mind?

Here are the conclusions from a detailed analysis of scientific data on giving the flu vaccine to pregnant women:

The ACIP’s recommendation of influenza vaccination during pregnancy is not supported by citations in its own policy paper or in current medical literature. Considering the potential risks of maternal and fetal mercury exposure, the administration of thimerosal during pregnancy is both unjustified and unwise. Pregnancy should continue to be a time when doctors are highly protective of their patients with regard to any fetal exposure. Without adequate safety testing, a risk-benefit analysis of influenza vaccination during pregnancy is not possible, and therefore the ACIP’s present recommendation should be withdrawn.”

Vaccines, like all other medications, given to pregnant women can have significant health impacts. Please urge all pregnant women you know to investigate thoroughly before they accept any ‘routine’ medical procedure.

Why I’m an Activist

CDC Truth Rally 2016A Guest Blog featuring Marcella Piper-Terry, a tireless researcher and a mom of a vaccine injured child who helps other families impacted by vaccine injury find healing.

I remember how I felt the first time it really sunk in that vaccines were causing autism, and a whole host of other neuro-developmental, immunological, gastrointestinal and behavioral disorders.
That was the day my life and my path changed forever.
It felt like I had discovered this HUGE secret.
It was well before Facebook and I wasn’t connected to anyone else who “knew.” At least not anyone I knew.
All I needed to do was tell them.
I had no idea how difficult that would be.
I really had no idea how resistant and how angry people would be.
That was an eye-opener.
I was naive enough to think that this whole thing was a mistake.
I thought the vaccine program was “something good that just had unintended consequences” and even though vaccines were “good for most people” there were some people (like my family, myself, my children, my patients) who just couldn’t handle them.
In our family, I believed it was because we had been previously exposed to lead. That’s how I “discovered” the problems with vaccines. I thought it was just that certain people couldn’t handle them because of the synergistic effects of mercury, aluminum, and lead (or other exposures to environmental toxins).
Because I already knew a lot about what lead does to the body, when I started looking at mercury (which is many times more toxic than lead), it made sense. Because of my science and research background, I understood.
From that moment forward, it became my mission to try and help other people understand.
It was a long time after that initial “Aha!” moment that I had my second BIG “Aha!”
Because I still thought that vaccines were basically “good for most people,” I spent a lot of time trying to determine who the children might be that were more vulnerable to vaccine-injury. In my work, over several years, I had developed a very lengthy Child Developmental History Form. It’s now more than 20 pages long and contains a LOT of questions. I became obsessed with finding the common factors in the children I saw – and later, in the children of my friends on Facebook – who regressed or became very ill after vaccinations.
I am a researcher and that’s what I do. I research. I gather information and I examine it. I look for patterns. I try to problem-solve and this was the biggest problem I had ever tried to figure out.
My goal… the reason I was trying so hard, is because I still believed this was a mistake. All that had to be done was to TELL our government what was happening and they would change it.
Then I learned about Simpsonwood.[1]
And I heard Dr. Bernadine Healy talk about her colleagues at The Institute of Medicine and how they knew there were subsets of vulnerable children and they were refusing to do the research that might identify those children.
And I started reading the published research that was done by those at The CDC.
And I realized.
It’s not that they don’t know.
It’s that they don’t care.
It’s been a few years since I came to that second realization and I have to say it was even more painful than the first. Maybe it’s because I’m just very naive, or because I really do want to believe in the goodness of people, it was extremely difficult for me to grasp that all the stuff I had been fed as a child growing up about how great it is to be an American, and to be “free” in this “great land of opportunity” was… well… complete and utter BS.
At this moment, my brain just went to Michael Jackson and “All I wanna say is that they don’t really care about us.”
The sooner we realize that, the better.
I hope and pray those who are much younger than I are also much wiser and less trusting.
On October 13, 2016, I will be gassing up my car and making the 6 hour drive to Atlanta, where I will stand outside the CDC with parents, grandparents, children, and activists from around the country. We will hold our signs. We will blow our whistles. We will talk to the media. We will tell our stories. We will be visible and vocal.
Will it stop the carnage?
not immediately
Will it get William Thompson subpoenaed?[2]
not immediately
Nothing will accomplish the end of the corruption that is harming children around the world in a single day. But that does not mean we stop trying.
The corruption that is harming our children is deeper and darker than anything this world has ever seen. No single event will stop it. But together, multiple events and multiple voices in multiple places WILL make a difference.
Every time we speak. Every time we march. Every time we protest. Every time we travel to our state houses. Every time we go to meetings and put our truth out there, we reach others who would not otherwise hear.
I have stood on corners with signs many times. Often by myself.
Every single time, I have felt it was time well spent.
I’ve been asked a few times about the upcoming rally in Atlanta, “Is it going to accomplish anything?”
The answer to that is, “Absolutely.”
We will educate passers-by. We will educate CDC employees. We will empower and strengthen each other. We will hug and laugh and talk and meet people we’ve only known through social media.
And we will grow our numbers through our advocacy.
Because truth cannot be hidden indefinitely.
We are on the right side and we WILL win this war.
CDC Truth Rally 2016One conversation and one corner at a time.

Choice & Belief

6 needles croppedThe overriding issue in the vaccine debate is choice. Many highly educated doctors and parents, who take the time to closely dissect the research behind ‘vaccine science’, develop deep concerns.

Anyone who desires the truth and wants to understand vaccines should start simply by reading the vaccine ingredient list. The ingredients of each vaccine can be found in the complete vaccine package insert (VPI) provided in the box from the manufacturers – not the “info sheet” that the CDC has prepared and that your doctor will have in his office. You can read all the package inserts on the FDA’s own website. Section 11 of every VPI contains the ingredients. Look up the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) on each ingredient.

When discussing vaccine ingredients, many who are pro-vaccine repeat (ad nauseam) that the ingredients we eat (i.e. pears) contain more of these toxic chemicals than are in vaccines. This concept deserves deeper consideration. The FDA has standards for safety for the ingestion of many of the ingredients listed in vaccines. However, ingestion is inherently safer than injection because the gastro intestinal tract contains and eliminates toxins rather efficiently. Injecting toxic chemicals intramuscularly is exposing the body to far more harm. The blood system and lymph system is not always able to identify and eliminate harmful ingredients such as aluminum, formaldehyde, polysorbate 80, mercury, and Glutaraldehyde.

Vaccines also contain protein and DNA fragments from the growth medium used which could include aborted human fetal tissue, dog tissue, egg tissue, monkey kidney cell tissue, etc. Apart from the ethical issues raised by these methods of vaccine development, especially for those who maintain a ‘pro-life’ or vegan standpoint, very little scientific study has been done to determine the impact of injecting these fragments of foreign material into the muscle of a small baby. One study on the elimination of aluminum by infants after receiving vaccines containing aluminum adjuvants showed that it was not excreted in the urine and was not measurable in the blood in the two weeks following the injection. Where was it? Since the researchers did not find it excreted by the body, the obvious question that one would think they would be eager to ask and answer is, “Where is the aluminum and what is it doing?” Further studies have not been published, so the answer is conjecture, but seems obvious. The aluminum must be in the tissue, brain, other vital organs, or bone since it was not eliminated into the blood system or urine.

The point is that we are regularly injecting babies with a host of harmful ingredients with blind faith that these vaccines will be safe and will prevent a range of “vaccine preventable disease.” What is the truth?

There is a risk associated with every medical procedure. The US Supreme Court has ruled that vaccines are “unavoidably unsafe.” Those were their exact words. Where there is a risk, there must be a choice.

The state of California passed a bill which made a significant change in the ability of families to have a choice in giving a potentially harmful medical procedure to their babies and children if they want to participate in schools.

The rationale behind this push to force vaccines on all children is hard to grasp. A healthy child who has not received the Hepatitis B vaccine (which is given in three doses and contains 0.25 mg of aluminum per dose) cannot attend school in California, Mississippi, and West Virginia, yet a child diagnosed with an active case of Hepatitis B can go to school and no one would ever know, because that child’s medical status is protected by law as privileged medical information – and rightfully so. But is this logical?

A further question that must be asked by those considering vaccines is, “Do vaccines even prevent the diseases for which they are intended?” Recent incidents of multiple outbreaks of various diseases in the mostly vaccinated populations in both the USA, India, and China demonstrate that the vaccines are not delivering on their promised protection from infectious diseases.

Most parents who find themselves strongly opposed to mandatory vaccines were once quite pro-vaccine. They have learned through a long difficult experience that sometimes what you think is good for your child can actually cause a great deal of harm. In fact, for some families who have watched their child die immediately following a ‘well’ baby visit where they received multiple vaccines given at one time injected into the thighs while they helped hold baby down, the guilt is enormous. They were not told that the CDC recommended shot schedule has never been tested for safety. Many vaccines have been added to the schedule without ever considering the combined impact of multiple vaccines on the infant’s body.

Other families have watched their precious baby regress in their previous abilities and become challenged with numerous physical symptoms demonstrating severe damage in the body. When they return to the same doctor who gave their baby the vaccines, and ask for help to understand and fix the host of symptoms, those same doctors deny any connection to vaccines and often dismiss them from their practice. The doctors are unable to address the myriad of physical symptoms resulting from vaccines, from non-stop diarrhea, constipation, neurological digression, seizures, tics, head banging, loss of speech, failure to thrive, etc. Parents recognize something is severely wrong with their child and are left helpless. They know their child is in pain and the severe gastrointestinal connection is obvious, but they don’t know where to begin to heal or fix the damage caused by vaccines.

Parents are left with the aftermath of a debilitated child and absolutely no support. The vaccine manufacturer is indemnified. No matter what happens after a vaccine, the manufacturer is not responsible. The CDC, who recommends nearly 80 vaccines to all children during their childhood, is also free from liability. The doctor and/or nurses who inject the vaccines have no legal responsibility for what happens, and further, are deeply indoctrinated that vaccines are ‘safe and effective’ and thus often cannot recognize the overwhelmingly obvious impact of the vaccine on the overall health of the child in front of them. They do not want to see it, and they have no understanding of how to help heal the child.

Do you believe in vaccines? That’s an interesting word. It seems a word that should be connected with a religion. Perhaps it is. Perhaps the whole system of vaccination promoted by the western medical system is just a man-made religious system.

This information is not designed to make you feel guilty for what you did or didn’t do as a parent. 99% of all parents want the best for their child. Every action towards our infant is done from the depths of our loving hearts. We want the BEST for our babies. Sometimes we are misled by those we trust and respect. They may be misled because they respect the ‘experts’ who perhaps have undisclosed vested interests, or complete ignorance. Doctors are generally very busy and don’t have time to research each topic in depth. They trust “experts” to do unbiased analysis and evaluations. It is time for more unbiased science to fully examine all the facts surrounding the vaccine debate.

The point of understanding vaccines and the potential harm they can have on babies is to help educate those making this decision today. We can’t change the past, but we can warn the generations to come so that they make wise choices. It’s all about choice.

Here are some excellent resources to help you on your journey towards understanding the vaccine debate:

  • Dr. David Ayoub presents vaccine safety issues and autism causation to a group of doctors who support giving recommended vaccines.
  • Vaxxed the Movie: From Coverup to Catastrophe provides a detailed account of the confessions made by Dr William Thompson, the CDC Whistleblower, interviews with pharmaceutical insiders, doctors, politicians, and parents of vaccine-injured children, which reveal an alarming deception that has contributed to the skyrocketing increase of autism and potentially the most catastrophic epidemic of our lifetime.
  • Dr Suzanne Humphries has spent years and thousands of hours reviewing the science behind vaccines for herself after discovering that the information she received in her medical training was far from thorough. I’ve linked one of her videos here.
  • District Attorney Nico LaHood, with his wife, Davida, tell their story of vaccine injury and their journey to discover and share truth. As a district attorney he has great insight into the role of evidence in drawing conclusions.

Vaccine Wars

Conflict stick figuresHelp! I have a family member who wants to vaccinate a child I love. What can I do to get them to change their mind????

Sometimes significant family members refuse to research factual information, yet strongly disagrees when we present the true dangers and risk of vaccines. Vaccine debates in families can become extremely emotional. Both sides feel committed to their point of view.

If you are having vaccine safety discussions with someone you love, who also loves your child, it is critically important for you to remember that you are on the same team. You both want the best for your precious baby. It’s not about who is right and who is wrong, but it is about what is truly best for your baby. It is also important to recognize that the media and the medical system push vaccines on the public through well designed fear campaigns. Many times conversations about vaccines can become a heated topic. It is best to avoid that. Sometimes asking a friend to play the role of arbitrator can be helpful. It is always helpful to pray. God can truly work miracles, even today.

Understanding the point of view of the other person is a priority and will help open up calm rational discussion. Seek first to understand. Don’t even try to change their mind. Have a few conversations just exploring their background beliefs on the topic of vaccines.

  • Is the pro vaccine stance rooted in a fear of disease? Which particular disease? Where is their information or fear coming from?
  • Does their pro vaccine stance stem from social fear? Maybe their own parents or family has drummed it into their mind that anyone that doesn’t give vaccines is just stupid or irresponsible, and they don’t ever want to have ‘that conversation’ with them.
  • Are there any medical/educational factors in their background? Maybe a course they took where a teacher stressed vaccines were safe and effective and everyone should get them.
  • Is there a previous tragedy in the family that they think might have been prevented with vaccines?
  • Lack of education, yet pride. Sometimes when a person is bombarded with ‘scientific evidence’ it makes them feel inferior so they dig in their heels just to demonstrate their strength and power. By listening and showing respect for their views it can give them space to let go of their pride.

When you are reasonable and listen, it will enable you to slowly ask questions and impart important information about the specific risk of vaccines. Many of us have been researching the harm of vaccines for years and could give several hours worth of lectures on the topic. That is WAY TOO MUCH information to share. We need to simplify and make very simple requests like, can we read the vaccine package insert together? Many people find exploring the vaccine package inserts supplied by the manufacturer for each shot contains valuable information to understand both the ingredients in the vaccine and the adverse events noted when it was studied.

Another step is to research the disease which the pro-vaccine family member fears the most. Look at the actual number of cases of the disease so you know the risk and learn how to treat it.

A critically important area to research is the design and function of the infant’s immune system. Scientific understanding of the development of the immune system in the last 10 years has exploded. So much new information is now available on the gut/brain link and the lymphatic system that all medical textbooks need to be re-written. Most doctors are not able to keep current on the latest scientific discoveries.

A parent’s most important role in the early years of a child’s life is to protect their babies brain. Ask your pro-vaccine family member to look into the blood brain barrier. No parent will knowingly put their baby into a faulty car seat, yet we inject baby with chemicals we would never let them touch or put into their mouths. Stick to limited information. One ingredient of particular concern is aluminum.

I highly recommend watching any video on Youtube by Dr Suzanne Humphries, especially the videos in which she explains exactly HOW the infant immune system develops. All her talks contain the latest unbiased SCIENCE. Everything she explains is evidence-based with REAL science, not the bought and paid for type. I linked her video on this blog. Stress the importance of finding unbiased scientific support for any decision you make. You are on the same team and both parents want the best for your precious baby – safety from illness and a long healthy life. The question is, how is that achieved?

Regarding the recommendation implemented in 2013 by the CDC for every woman to get a TDaP for every pregnancy, please research carefully before you inject anything into your body when pregnant. I wrote about shots recommended for pregnancy here.

If you have tried everything and your partner still feels strongly about giving your baby vaccines, as a last resort, may I respectfully suggest that you ask to schedule a face to face conversation to discuss one specific request. Don’t rely on texts, or sending links via email. Make an appointment like this, “Hey, when would be a good chance for us to have an important conversation? I just want to make sure it’s a time when we won’t face any other distractions, so that we can truly hear each other.” Set a day and time.

Plan what you want to say. It might be something like this, “I know you think vaccines are really important for ____ to receive. I know you are concerned about infectious diseases and would never want our baby to suffer. I know you trust ______ (the doctor) and want to be a great parent. You are a great parent, by the way. I have one request. Could we please delay all vaccines until we are able to have some more rational conversations about this topic. We might need someone to come and help us talk about it. I would like to recommend specifically that we delay all vaccines at least until the baby’s blood brain barrier is fully formed. My particular concern is that the ingredients in the vaccines which are injected will make their way to the brain.”

There are differing opinions on when the blood brain barrier closes (perhaps your partner would want to do more research), but experts agree that it is sometime between 2 – 8 years. If you can get an agreement to wait until 2 years, research, pray like crazy, and try to understand your partner’s point of view! Asking questions and try to understand where they are coming from, without trying to win every argument will go a long way in helping them eventually come to understand the truth about the vaccine debate.

Finally, if for whatever reason, your baby is given vaccines, please read this first so that you are fully prepared and understand the process, and how to make it easier on everyone.

You might not agree, but I believe the issue of vaccine safety is part of a spiritual battle we face. Paul gave Timothy, his young prodigy, this profound advice:

“Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.” 2 Timothy 2:25-26

Immediate Vaccine Reaction

A guest post…

Hey!I wanted to share my story with the hope that I can raise awareness on the reality of vaccine injury. Every vaccine is a risk. A much greater risk than any parent is every told.

A few days ago, I was…

Praying really hard that A’s tests come back good and we are on the road to recovery!
Praying that the EEG SHOWS NO SEIZURE ACTIVITY OR PERMANENT DAMAGE.

I’m listening to screams from the back hallway and I’m praying it isn’t my sweet two year old boy. I know these appointments are so traumatizing for him.

We thought we were being wise parents. We knew vaccines could be a risk. We only allowed one shot at a time, spaced out, and delayed. Our first pediatrician ‘kicked us out of their office’ because we dared think for ourselves. What did we do? We refused to give vaccines at the 12 month appointment because baby was sick.

Baby's mom vacc injuryHis first shot was right around 4 months. He seemed to do fine on single shots. After we were refused service at the first office, we found another paediatrician. At the first visit in the new office we were pushed hard to give more vaccines than I was comfortable with. He was given the DTaP, Hib, and Prevnar (3 shots, but 5 vaccines in total) and my spouse and I watched our son convulse on the table right before our eyes.

We got dismissed from the second paediatrician the same day my son convulsed on the table during/after his shots. The reason? We refused to give him the Hepatitis A, Varicella, MMR, and Hepatitis B. They wanted to give him 4 additional needles with a total of 6 vaccines. We refused. They dismissed us.

I pray that every Mom out there will question everything that goes into their child. Most of my ‘friends’ ignore my posts about my son’s vaccine injury after receiving those shots a year ago, but vaccine injury is serious and it does happen more often than anyone wants to acknowledge.

Vaccine injury is SEVERELY under reported. I’m in the medical field and have seen it first hand. Doctors and nurses love to tell parents: “It’s just a coincidence, it couldn’t have been the vaccines.” I’m positive my child’s reaction to those vaccines happened less than 2 minutes after being injected. My child’s reaction was most certainly due to the vaccines. My child had ABSOLUTELY NO ISSUES PRIOR TO THIS EVENT. Doctors, nurses, all the assistants, and the office staff are all in absolute denial. When I recently went to collect my son’s medical records, including batch numbers of the shots, there was absolutely no note in his record of his reaction to the shots he was given. There was no documentation anywhere in his charts, even though they made us stay in the office for an hour of observation after his traumatic reaction.

I feel so alone in this journey because NOBODY wants to talk about the fact that vaccine injury occurs. I have to pray hard not be angry with all of this and with the people in my life that want to ignore that this happened to us. I’m just so thankful I didn’t agree to the other 6 vaccines they wanted to give him on the same day. If I had said yes, I might not have my son with me today. I trusted my Mommy instincts to at least limit the number of vaccines he received. My advice to other mothers is, follow your gut instincts, they are rarely ever wrong. This has been a very long journey for our family over the past year.

If I could say one thing it would be that nothing in medicine is ONE SIZE FITS ALL. Every drug has side effects and that includes vaccines.

Take time to read the ACTUAL INSERTS, not the sugar coated version the doctor hands you. Look at the ingredients, REALLY get the vaccine package insert and find ALL the ingredients (most of which aren’t safe for an adult, much less a baby). Make your informed choice because it’s your right as a parent. I wish I had done this.

It’s okay to say, “NO. I don’t want my child to have 5-10 vaccines pumped into him at once.” It’s okay to say, “I want to wait until baby is older and the chance of injury is less.” It’s okay to say, “I don’t want them to have vaccines at all until I’ve thoroughly researched.” It’s okay to research and come to your own decisions. It’s okay to not follow the herd and it’s okay to refuse to sacrifice your child for the supposed “greater good”. I assure you it’s better than living with the guilt of knowing that you were a part of your child’s injury by allowing it to happen.

What’s NOT OKAY is our society ostracizing parents of vaccine injured children and pretending it didn’t happen. THAT’S NOT OKAY!

If I said I’m being abused then I’d have everyone’s attention. If I said I was in a car wreck, I’d have everyone’s condolences. When I say a vaccine injured my child, NOTHING! It’s heartbreaking. I’ve never felt so alone on a journey in my entire life. Whether you agree with my current thoughts on vaccines or not, it’s okay to support me during a difficult time.

If our family’s journey can open the eyes of one person, then I guess it wasn’t for nothing! There are some who have been a great support to me, most of whom are also walking this journey.

It’s been almost a year now and we are doing biomedical healing and he is doing much better. It’s been a long hard road and I wish I could go back. I would trust my gut and protected my precious boy from vaccines.

On a side note: it will be over my dead body before anyone vaccinates my children again.
