Holiday Health

It is the time of year for gathering with friends and family with some full meals, heavy soups, and high sugar treats. These things can be detrimental to your health when they are not supported by useful sources of nutrition. Good news! You get to be creative in the kitchen. As I say: Most things in moderation, some restricted.

While you’re preparing those leftovers from Thanksgiving, throw in some fresh vegetables! It is the season for broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, garlic, onions, spinach, kale, cabbage, and lettuce! All these things work well as garnishes, on sandwiches, in casseroles, and soups. Well, I wouldn’t put lettuce in soup, but cabbage soup is pretty tasty!

As it cools down, think soup! Soup is nice and warming, has the potential to provide you with several nutrients (it is all about what you toss in), and supplies your body with HYDRATION. We tend to remember to drink water in the summer while we are hot; yet, forget in the winter while we are hermits. You need hydration all year long. Soup to the rescue!

Which brings us to the stars of the show… these winter vegetables.

Garlic and Onions: Antimicrobial (bacteria, fungi, and viruses); High in sulfur which replenishes glutathione essential for detoxification; High in Manganese, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin C

Broccoli and Cauliflower: High in Vitamin C; good source of fiber and potassium; contains isothiocyanates that reduce oxidative stress

Carrots: Excellent source of beta-carotene; good source of threonine which is an amino acid used to treat neurological disorders and helps thymus growth and immune cell functions

Spinach: High in vitamin K; high in beta-carotene; high in Vitamin C; good source of Manganese

Kale: Same as spinach with additional anti-cancer, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties. I add kale to all my recipes!

Cabbage: Great source of vitamin C

These vegetables (plus, many more and fruits) are sources of metabolites and biologically active components that are found to be beneficial to overall health and several immune functions.

Phytochemicals: aid in detoxification, stimulate the immune system, prevent DNA damage, repair DNA damage, regulates hormones, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic

Flavonoids: antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-carcinogenic, anti-mutagenic, inhibits neurodegeneration, regulates the immune system, antimicrobial

While cooking some vegetables, be careful not to boil your soup. Why?

Vitamin C.

– Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant. It cleans up waste within your body by capturing free radicals. Free radicals are unstable, highly-reactive particles that cause cell damage. You want to limit these!

– Because Vitamin C is water-soluble, it is excreted in your urine. This means that you must constantly replenish this vitamin for use. It also means that Vitamin C escapes foods when exposed to heat and water. Boiling as preparation for vegetables high in vitamin C breaks down this vitamin, and it can get lost in the liquid. That is obviously okay in soups! If you are worried about the heat, just add your vitamin C rich vegetables LAST and be careful when reheating leftovers. Or, you can do what I do and just save some vegetables and add them in each time you reheat your soup.

Vitamin C is also tolerable in high doses with no upper limit toxicity. The only documented side effect is abdominal discomfort and bowel flushing in frequent mega-doses.

Yet, some vegetables love the heat!

A gentle sauté before tossing them in soup can bring out the flavors and do wonders for carotenoids found in carrots and deeply colored root vegetables! These are excellent vegetables in soups.

Beta-carotene: This is a mineral that is converted to Vitamin A. Beta-carotene has anti-cancer properties specific to the gut, lungs, and leukemia. Dietary beta-carotene is safe in high doses as the body will not convert more beta-carotene than needed. Retinol (another form of vitamin A) is already converted and can be absorbed in toxic amounts as it is readily stored in fats. Vitamin A protects your skin and mucous membranes (your first line of defense!). Vitamin A fortifies the immune system and is essential for eye health and vision.

Most of all, have fun combining flavors and find what works for you and your family. Some vegetables are a pain to prep; some are easier. Some people cannot tolerate certain flavors; some put garlic in EVERYTHING (guilty!). I capitalize on naptime for veggie prep. Hours in the kitchen may save you hundreds in the stores seeking out illness remedies. A fortified immune system is well-equipped to fight off those “seasonal” invaders!

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.

Food is Your Foundation

When we think about our bodies, we usually don’t realize what powerful machines they are. How often do you listen to its needs? We recharge with sleep and fuel with food. Like a car’s performance depends on how you fuel and maintain it, so does your body. Sure, some people are presented with some bad genetics, but for the most part, the body is a healing machine!

This is why I bring attention to what you put into your body and that of your littles. Let’s start with your littles. Children’s bodies are in a rapid growth spurt. What you feed that growth spurt matters. If they don’t receive food of substance, that is when illness presents itself. Illness is merely an imbalance. The body will take everything it can from what it is given, but if nutrients are lacking what can you expect? With a lack of nutrition, the body becomes fragile and other organisms (e.g., bacteria, viruses, fungi) are able to take over in that weakened state. Coupled with environmental toxins, you have a storm brewing and what you see is respiratory illness, stomach issues, and chronic conditions.

Yep. I said it. Nutrition impacts health that much. Do you feed yourself to fortify your body, aid in its growth, and provide for optimal functioning? If not, ask yourself why? How much longer are you going to allow your energy to be nonexistent, mood to be negative, and body to reap the consequences of a bad diet? If not now, then when?

No, I’m not here to sell you some gimmick diet. I’m here to alert you to any concerns you may have about your health before it becomes the concern of multiple parties. This is lifelong. Do your research. There are plenty of health food companies on the market, choose one to help supplement your diet. Make the changes now before you are changed by a crisis. Do. Your. Research.

I don’t need to know what is going on because you know. You are the only one who can command your health and the health of your littles. You can get all the advice you can handle, but you are the person who controls your body. If not you, then who?

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.
