Separating Education from Indoctrination

I don’t know about you, but I did not want this.

I did not devote years of my life to health, science, healing, and wellness to be attacked, ridiculed, judged, and labeled.

I did not spend thousands of hours studying health sciences to graduate at the top of my class THREE TIMES to be discredited for my experiences and knowledge about these topics.

I did not dedicate countless hours of my time reading government websites, pharmaceutical documents, peer-reviewed studies, and systematic reviews to be ignored, silenced, rejected, and censored.

I did not want this, but my conscience will not let me ignore my experiences.

I was once indoctrinated. I was taught the vaccine schedule and what infections were covered in those vaccines. I was briefly shown herd immunity. I was informed that “vaccines [were] safe and effective.” I had no reason to question otherwise, and if others did so, they lacked the capacity to understand “the science.” That is what I was, and many others are, indoctrinated to believe.

I was not taught about vaccine efficacy rates or failure. Vaccines were not a focus in immunology, though some processes signaled theories of their supposed actions. Vaccine-targeted bacteria and viruses were not thoroughly explored in microbiology alike other microbes. Vaccines were not covered in pharmacology, where adverse events were always attached to studied drugs. Vaccines did not come with adverse events. There was no mention of the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), and I was not familiar with this passive avenue of compiling population data through post-marketing surveillance as clinical trials are of short duration (some only FOUR days… e.g., Hep B vaccine).

As a foundation, colleges require you to learn concepts without challenging the information. As you dive deeper into the sciences, you find that challenging theory is vital to the fluid nature of science. We still discover new things about the evolving biome/virome and what humans have done to help or hinder the health of populations (e.g., the implications of antibiotic overuse, tobacco science, and the low-fat/high sugar “heart health” diet in light of the obesity crisis… just to name a few). We see changes in human health and must consider contributing factors to find solutions. Current research in epigenetics, the gut-brain connection, and functional medicine are challenging long-held theories surrounding health and wellness.

I have made up for gaps in school. I have explored the evidence-based practice, how to read scientific studies, how to check for bias, and have challenged mainstream ideas in the classroom with success. I have pulled the studies from databases and notice a trend. Glowing reports of vaccine efficacy always contain a bias as they are usually funded by vaccine manufacturers and government agencies that promote them. Those researchers that challenge the data and ask the hard questions rarely have a government funding source, are never tied to the pharmaceutical companies that produce vaccines, and declare no conflicts of interest. Funny how that works, eh?

That being said, we all have biases that need worked through. Our experiences, including formal education, can create these biases. We can be taught to hold certain entities in high regard, but we must be careful not to be blinded to their failures or misrepresentation of data. We must hold them accountable.

I do not think that there is a conspiracy surrounding the childhood vaccination program. I do not believe vaccine manufacturers intended to injure children. At the same time, we have got to recognize that vaccine manufacturers are the same companies that create other pharmaceuticals. If you know anything about FDA regulation and drug testing, you know that there is a price, harm still occurs after the screening of new drugs, and there are regular recalls. You know that medical journals are filled with shady science promoting new medications that are funded by the companies producing those drugs. The clinical trials involved in the manufacturing of vaccines are lesser than those demanded of the FDA for prescribed medications. Fact-Check this; clinical trials are included in manufacturing inserts for vaccines that are required by law.

My take on these issues is that an unintentional loophole was created with the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 that freed manufacturers from liability and guaranteed a market for vaccines that are recommended for the U. S. Vaccine Schedule. When your vaccine is approved for the schedule, you have secured revenue. The fiscal incentive for more vaccines is high in a developed country.

In 1983, there were seven total vaccine doses. In 2019, there are over 70 throughout childhood, with 22 doses concentrated in the first 12-15 months of life in the U.S. We also have an embarrassing infant (0-12 month) mortality rate as compared to other developed AND developing nations (we rank in the 50s)!

InfantMortalityCountries
List of countries that have LOWER infant death rates than the U. S.

According to the most recent data, the 4th leading cause of death in the first year is Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). SIDS is unexplained death that is not the result of congenital anomalies, maternal/pregnancy complications, or gestation-related causes. If we remove congenital, maternal, pregnancy, gestation from the death table, SIDS will rank #1! Sadly, we spend next to nothing on SIDS research as compared to vaccine spending. On top of that, spending on SIDS research was slashed by almost half from 2017 to 2018! Governments are the largest funding source for R&D, and the largest investment category worldwide is Vaccine Research and Development. The CDC claims vaccines aren’t the cause of SIDS; however, SIDS has no explained cause so that statement is a fallacy. Why would the CDC go against their own vaccine recommendations? They wouldn’t. That is why all their supporting SIDS studies contain glaring conflicts of interest (as they are generated internally), not to mention: outdated.

CDC SIDS Articles

Where your money goes, there lie your interests. Infant mortality in the U.S. is not the result of infectious diseases, yet that is where the money is spent. We have “no idea” why infants suddenly die, yet we aren’t interested in finding out why? Every year, roughly 2,500 babies born in the U.S. die before age one for unknown causes when you remove strangulation/suffocation from the data. Scientific processes allow people to find out the cause of death for a mummy buried over 4,000 years ago, but we cannot do the same for a baby that dies today. Let that sink in.

I do not think there is a conspiracy, but I do believe that these health agencies feel they have gone too far to turn back. They have sold us to their dogma of “vaccines are safe and effective” that is slathered all over government websites. If the childhood vaccine program fails, several people lose trust in government programs that seek to do some good. The challenge is identifying when data is misrepresented due to strong biases. It takes a level of commitment and discomfort (cognitive dissonance) when you seek education and put your biases aside. There is a lot on the line when you challenge the science of vaccines, but without conflict there cannot be progress. We have conflict because we demand progress. Never stop demanding progress.

Shalom, light, and love.

Measles Epidemic: This is what the numbers say

With the recent media-driven hysteria over measles, I’ve been asked by friends, co-workers, and family if I was concerned since I am an ex-vaxxer and have likely not vaccinated my littles with MMRV.

Concerned about the measles that lurks in our population? No.
Concerned about my children getting measles? No.
Concerned about how people lack the capacity to research the actual incidence of measles as related to the population density of children? Yes.
Concerned about people regurgitating the propaganda and bashing parental choice? Yes.

Why am I not concerned about the first two? You will have to see my former post here: Your Herd Immunity is a Myth

As for the rest… we have given mainstream media too much credit in our country. Let us look at the numbers. According to the U. S. Census Bureau in 2017, we estimated the total population at 325,719,178. Of this population, 23% were under the age of 18 years; this gives us roughly 39,086,301 children in the U. S. under age 18.

If I take a gross overview of the incidence of measles in the United States over the last ten years (Because that data is readily available to me. Thank you, CDC! See table.) That gives us 2,059 cases of measles across EVERY age group for ten years.

trends-measles-cases

If I were to apply this number to our current population of children alone, that is an incidence of 0.0000527% of those aged <18. A minuscule percentage, even when I apply the total number over the course of a decade to the population of today. Of course, this is an innacurrate calculation as population fluctuates.

If I were to apply the recent numbers (2018 to currently) for a rate of 473 cases… that is 0.0000121% of the entire population of children alone. The incidence of measles is 1.2 in every 100,000 children! That is also known as a 12 IN A MILLION chance that your child got measles last year. What?! Why is this mainstream news?!

UPDATE: number exaggerated by CDC on actual incidence of measles-related deaths, [see image below].

https://www.facebook.com/PICphysicians/photos/pb.669725606516932.-2207520000.1551953075./1246091035547050/?type=3&amp;theater
PIC Measles Memorandum to Senate

Do you want to know what is more critical than measles? The rate of disease in our youth that is 100% preventable by diet and lifestyle choices. The World Health Organization reports that 71% of deaths are caused by NON-COMMUNICABLE DISEASES worldwide! Measles is communicable. The top two killers are coronary artery disease (heart disease) and stroke; the top two in the U. S. are heart disease and cancer. (I am not going to touch cancer or autoimmune diseases right now, because that could be a blog series of its own.)

The U. S. has a population that touts 1 in 3 obese children. This incidence is tangible. This risk factor leads to early-onset diabetes and hypertension which contribute to coronary artery disease, the leading cause of death! So why aren’t we talking about the unhealthy foods marketed to our children, given to them in school, and promoted by mainstream media and big business? Because: MONEY. These things are lucrative.

There is no profit in growing your GMO-free, water and sunshine fed produce in your backyard and certainly no money in a healthy child. However, there is a lot of money in autoimmune disorders, chronic disease, and frequenting the pediatrician and the plethora of specialists we have created in the medical community for all of your sickcare needs.

Let us look at the numbers again. According to the Diabetes Report Card of 2017, in 2015 there were 193,000 new diagnoses of diabetes in those <20 years old. In one year, 0.005% of children were newly diagnosed with diabetes, not including those already diagnosed; 5 in 1,000 children were diagnosed with diabetes. They also report a 6.6% annual increase of diabetes among those <20 years of age. Diabetes is a risk factor for chronic conditions including… You guessed it! CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE.

According to the CDC, there are 1.3 million children aged 12-19 diagnosed with hypertension. For every 100 children, 3 will be diagnosed with hypertension using the CDC data. Read that again. Hypertension is also a major risk factor for that leading killer!

The U.S. spends almost $10,000 per capita in “health” care. This is double the second-highest spender, Canada. Compared to Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom we rank DEAD LAST in health outcomes. How embarrassing.

While the mainstream media is attacking parental choice and pushing government mandates, we must remind ourselves that our government does not have a track record for success in health matters, but sure spends a lot of money in the meantime. With poor health trends mimicked in our children, it is time that parents take responsibility for the health of their littles… It is time that we question mainstream practices and consult the evidence.  It is time we stand up, recognize what matters most, and identify the histerics.

Informed parents are not concerned about measles. Informed parents are not mainstream. Informed parents are often ridiculed by powerful entities. Do not be mistaken. We are educated, vigilant, and fiercly protective of our own. Ball is in your court.

Shalom, light, and love.

They do not care about your children.

This has been a long time coming… So, let’s get started.

The Department of Health and Human Services neglected to study the vaccination program for safety and efficacy for almost 30 years. Surprised? What’s more is that THIS CAME OUT IN JULY AND IT WAS NOT MAJOR NEWS. Nope, not a sliver surprised about that part, eh?

How can we vehemently protect a program that is not held accountable by anyone? How do we recognize that mainstream media does not hold our best interests and will not call out the government for slipping up yet again (Google “CDC Whistleblower” for the ball dropped there and buried into silence), yet we protect a massive medical program that is instituted, funded, and promoted by that same government?

A little backstory. In the early 1980s, when the vaccine schedule increased for the first time, parents were suing vaccine manufacturers for injuries and death of their children after vaccine administration. Vaccination was new and reactions were occurring. These pharmaceutical companies realized the cost of litigation was unsustainable so they approached the federal government with plans to cease making vaccines.

The government decided that vaccines were important and they would solve the problem by taking liability off the manufacturers, absorbing the expenses, and limiting costs of litigation by capping amounts that were paid to families. They also stated that they would task the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services to create a task force to conduct safety studies. Thus begat the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 (H. R. 5546): http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK220067/

You can also look up full-text of the legislation in the congressional database. Legal jargon is so much fun to read, believe me, I have almost a decade of it under my belt. Much of it is about limiting claims, releasing liability from manufacturers, creating the Vaccine Advisory Committee, and a tidbit at the end about safety studies going forth.

The National Vaccine Advisory Committee and the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services were tasked to conduct studies of the entire schedule 2 or 3 years after the passing of this bill in 1986. The failed to do so. How did this come out just recently?

Robert F. Kennedy and a non-profit foundation sued the federal government earlier this year for neglecting to follow the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) when they requested the results of the studies conducted by the DHHS starting in 1988/1989 and so forth. The government stated that no FOIA breach was made as there were no studies found. This information was released July 9, 2018. The document is here with a synopsis: http://icandecide.org/government/ICAN-HHS-Stipulated-Order-July-2018.pdf

There you have it, folks! The current vaccine schedule is touted as “safe and effective” yet this is unproven. Untested, highly-recommended, and government-approved.

Do you still wonder why parents are concerned about the changes witnessed in their children? Don’t patients know their bodies best? Wouldn’t you think there is some truth to the parent knowing their child? Why distrust the patient? What do we, parents, have to gain for declining medical interventions? Do we err on the side of do no harm anymore?

America is reactive. We are calling for studies after all these things have happened. Health should never be reactive. It is time enough that longitudinal studies be conducted to see what has resulted in our population of vaccinated people. Since the schedule was pushed on parents in the late 1980s and early 1990s, we have enough people to do a mass study. More recently, what health effects have resulted in the last 10 years after the volume of vaccines tripled? Is there a positive (or negative) correlation?

We absolutely need a study conducted by the department of HHS before another child is injured by these biologics. Remember, you had a fraction of what is mandated on the infant schedule today. A fraction of this untested medication “recommendation.”

Saving the babies is a great, altruistic cause, but this is clearly not important enough to ensure safety first. The government bodies no not care, but we do. We hear you. We stand with you.

Shalom, light, and love.

Your Herd Immunity Is A Myth

For herd immunity, they say you need 95% vaccine compliance. They say that the majority need to be vaccinated so that we have “high levels” of immunity. This “coverage” allows for those vulnerable populations (immune-compromised, vax failure, unvaccinated) to be somehow protected. With high rates of immunity, the virus has low levels of presence within the population. You need your population to be highly immune to lower the chances of endemic exposure to those “not protected.” This is the idea behind herd immunity.

Let’s talk about varicella (chickenpox) and rubeloa (measles). Both used to be widely accepted as a childhood right of passage. Both natural infections are self-limiting with a short duration. As with every single respiratory virus, including common colds (there are 100s of strains), there are risks for complications when the child is immunocompromised, or their nutrition is poor. A healthy immune system is key to fending off diseases and infections. There are always risks of secondary infections with any illness. This does not change just because there is a vaccine available. All viruses have risks.

Chickenpox (varicella zoster virus)

Why did they create a chicken pox vaccine? To help families avoid missing work. They recognized that chickenpox kept mothers from work for 1-2 weeks so they created a vaccine to shorten this time frame… so they could save up those precious sick days. Not going to school is even listed as an inconvenience due to this disease on the CDC website. Have a look (https://www.cdc.gov/chickenpox/about/symptoms.html). Instead of weeks of chickenpox, if your child happened to get the infection, it would only last a few days. This is still true today. If your child has been vaccinated, they can still get the infection, but it is a “milder form” of chickenpox, though some vaccinated children still get full-blown chickenpox (approx. 1-3% vaccine failure). You cannot inject health. You can inject substances that provoke the immune system (action of a vaccine), but it does not guarantee immunity. If the body does produce an antibody, it is only guaranteed for a short term. The vaccine insert for varicella estimates 10-13 years of antibody presence, with a high (99%) seroconversion rate for 2-dose series.

If herd immunity was our goal, let’s suppose everyone gets maximum 13 years effect starting at age 6 when the second vaccine is administered. Where are those vaccine campaigns for 19-year-olds, 32-year-olds, 45-year-olds, and so on…? Nope, no varicella vaccine campaign for them. 24% of the US population is under 18 years of age. So, we can go ahead and understand that more than 76% of our total population holds no immunity to varicella. On a herd immunity stance, this does not exist for chickenpox. Shingles proves that the varicella vaccine is a huge failure, we can explore that another day.

Measles (rubeola virus)

This virus causes high fever and a rash from head to toe. The complications include ear infections and pneumonia. Again, pneumonia is a complication of all respiratory viruses. Like the varicella vaccine, the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) has a short duration of 11-13 years, and a booster at elementary age is usually recommended. They should really start this mass campaign for MMR and varicella vaccination for ages 19, 32, 45, 58… so on, because that herd immunity theory is really taking a hit right now.

Moving on, the CDC and medical world attribute the decline of measles to vaccination alone. This is an outright lie. If you go to the vital statistics rates in the United States from the 1930s to the 1960s, you will see the natural decline of measles in the chart on page 85. I’ve attached it below.

measlesgif
https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/vsus/vsrates1940_60.pdf

Keeping this graph in mind, the vaccine was not licensed for use until 1963. Furthermore, the vaccine was not widely used until the late 1970s, per the CDC website. The campaign to eliminate measles by vaccination began in 1978 and ended in the early 1980s. They called it a success because of decline in numbers of measles comparatively. They seem to omit the fact that measles declined on its own from the 1900s to 1960s, but still cite the numbers of infections and deaths from this period (1900-1960s) to justify the use of the vaccine, when it was not directly linked to the fall of the disease. Questioning these tactics yet?

I also can’t get behind a vaccine that is currently pending trial in U.S. courts for research scientists exposing that they falsified the efficacy. Here is the court document for that (http://probeinternational.org/library/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/chatom-v-merck.pdf). That CDC scientist has whistleblower status and is barred from testimony.

So, when you get up in arms about that one child with measles in a population of 74.2 million children, they are effectively driving the fear. Think about it… Do you really consider 0.00000000054% of the population an outbreak?! 0.0000000135% of children in the US has measles and the masses are outraged and free to ostracize parents that choose to educate themselves about this topic and take different approaches. And, for what? Did you accomplish anything? Did you spread awareness about anything or further the divide without evidence to back the claims? The media does a great job in keeping us divided, especially when they try to prove child injury or the fear of some massive “outbreak.” They allowed you to take sides on a parental choice. This should be a parent’s informed decision, but sensational stories sell. They want you to take sides. They want you to push for mandatory interventions. Less liberty, more control. Don’t let them take away your parental rights because of ignorance and fear.

If all of the children were vaccinated on schedule (which we know they are not) then we would have 24% coverage nationwide (nowhere near 95%). When was the last time your adult parents had vaccines? Aunts? Uncles? Grandparents? Alright then. Time to wake up. Your herd isn’t immune.

Here’s an interesting thought. Approximately 5-15 and 150-200 people in the United States each year get the plague and leprosy. Do you fear the plague? Leprosy? No? Probably because we don’t have a vaccine for those conditions and the mainstream media doesn’t have anything emotionally driven like children and “life-saving vaccines” to blame that on. But, hey, plague and leprosy still occur in the United States in higher incidence than the measles, but that is a non-issue. The media is a powerful tool, if you give it that power.

Shalom, light, and love.

The Art of Medical Kidnapping: Alfie Evans

If you have not heard of this, that is mainstream media working at its finest. Only social media will show you the harsh truth about the world and governments. Take the time to catch up with a quick Google, Twitter, Facebook, or another social platform search then return to this post.

THIS IS SOCIALIZED MEDICINE. Is this really what you want the U.S. to have?! Should this be the standard? Should governments choose who receives and doesn’t receive medical care? Should insurance companies make those choices instead (because they certainly do)? Don’t be fooled… medical kidnapping already happens in America. That’s right! This is why informed consent should be heavily protected and upheld.

I cannot begin to fathom how these parents are functioning or coping. Honestly, I don’t want to imagine that reality. Their rights to their child were taken from them by the government who ruled to end this toddler’s life. The “high courts” ruled to end his life even though another hospital was willing to take over his care and Italy granted him citizenship to get him there (due to the plea of his parents). The hospital, Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, could have removed their ties and let the patient go, but they denied him this opportunity. It wasn’t about resources, as the helicopters were ready and the Italian hospital was on standby.

Alfie Evans was extubated on Monday at 9 pm UK time, and he lives over 36 hours later. He breathes on his own, yet the hospital REFUSED to let him leave and withheld water for almost 24 hours. They planned to hold him prisoner until death. This is appalling. A second opinion hasn’t been given to him or his family. A second emergency court appeal denied his transition of care again. Another doctor and hospital (in his country of citizenship) are NOT ALLOWED to treat this patient. Rumors are that he is allowed to go home to die and strictly forbidden to seek alternate care. WHAT?!

Why is Alder Hey so adamant to control the end of his life? Are they hiding something? Have they mismanaged his care? This level of government control is frightening and should be a wake-up alarm to people around the world. Go ahead a look into Adler Hey and their organ harvesting mishaps. It may be unrelated to this case, but their hands are soiled with past crimes.
