Natural Therapy for Cancer

 

Fruits and Vegetables

Anyone who has ever had cancer, or had a loved one with cancer, knows the feelings of fear, anxiety, worry and often hopelessness that this very serious illness can bring.  These emotions are very understandable it’s a serious illness.  So, its little wonder that cancer usually causes intense emotional distress in everyone involved.

Of course, the subject of cancer is far too involved to adequately address in a mere blog post.  However, I can acquaint you with some important information about cancer from a natural healing perspective and give you some ideas about options you may not be familiar with.  However, I strongly encourage you to seek professional help when dealing with cancer.  You need competent health care professionals helping you with your program and monitoring your progress, but you should also do some study on your own and learn about things you can do for yourself.

WHAT EXACTLY IS CANCER?

Cancer is a disease involving cells that have undergone a genetic mutation so they are no longer responsive to messages from the body that regulate cell metabolism and growth.  These mutations are believed to be the result of free radical damage turn cancerous.  Normal cells have an aerobic metabolism, which means they produce energy by means of oxygen and oxidation.  Anaerobic cells produce energy without oxygen via a process of fermentation.

This is important to know because if the body is highly oxygenated, the environment for cancer does not exist.  In fact, in 1931 Dr. Otto Warburg won a Nobel Prize for proving that whenever any cell is denied 60% of its oxygen requirements, it can become cancerous.  So, conditions that deprive cells of oxygen (like chronic inflammation, buildup of toxins or problems with red blood cells or circulation) increase the risk of cancer.  An overly acidic environment in the body is also a breeding ground for cancer.

Another important thing you should know is that cancer cells are forming in the body on a regular basis.  Very likely, you have a few inside you right now.  Don’t worry, the immune system normally recognizes these deviant cells and destroys them.

Therefor two factors must exist for you to develop cancer.  First, your body has to have a toxic, low oxygen environment that encourages the development of anaerobic cancer cells, and second, your immune system must be weakened so that it is not able to recognize and destroy these cells.

aerobic-respiration

So, while killing cancer cells (the goal of conventional cancer therapy) is an important part of treating cancer, it does not fix the underlying problems that created the cancer in the first place.  This is the weakness of the standard medical approach to cancer.  An effective protocol for cancer should do more than just destroy cancer cells, it should try to restore a normal, healthy environment in the body and rebuild the immune system.

So, even if one choose to use orthodox cancer therapies to destroy the cancer cells, they would be wise to consider doing natural therapy to restore the body’s state of health and prevent the cancer from wanting to re-occur.

PRINCIPLE #1: INCREASE OXYGEN LEVELS

Cancer cells are anaerobic, which means they live and thrive in a low oxygen environment.  They are able to get their energy by metabolizing nutrients, notable sugars and carbohydrates without oxygen, in a fermentative process.  Cancer cells cannot survive in a high oxygen environment, so keeping the body well oxygenated inhibits cancer.  Do this by getting plenty of fresh air and exercise, breathe deeply, if you smoke, QUIT.

oxygen

There are several supplements that can enhance oxygenation in the body.  For starters, CHINESE LUNG SUPPORT:  helps with oxygen delivery and uptake and is very useful for anyone with respiratory weakness.  Another Chinese remedy that strengthens the lungs and enhances oxygen transport is CORDYCEPS.  Cordyceps also helps the immune system.

LIQUID CHLOROPHYLL: is another great way to enhance oxygen transport.  It prevents clumping of red blood cells and helps them carry more oxygen to the tissues.  Research has shown that it can reduce the risk of cancer.

PRINCIPLE #2: BALANCE pH

In order to have optimal health, the body must maintain a proper internal pH.  Cancer cells prefer an acid pH environment.  Their fermentative metabolism also releases large amounts of lactic acid that inhibit transportation o oxygen to neighboring cells.  This spreads the environment for cancer.  A buildup of acid waste also inhibits toxins from being released by the cells.

ph-foods

The best way to counteract this acidic environment is to eat large quantities of fresh, preferable organic, fruits and veggies every day.  This is well-recognized as one of the best ways of decreasing your risk of cancer, but unfortunately, its benefit in helping folks recover from cancer is often ignored.  Fresh fruits and veggies not only help alkalize the body, they also strengthen immunity, aid detoxification and provide much-needed antioxidants.

Besides eating fresh fruits and veggies, there are several other supplements that can help alkalize the body.  The first is Ultimate Green Zone:  this is a whole food supplement that alkalizes the environment, aids in detoxification and builds the immune system to help it recognize and destroy cancer cells.

Digestive enzymes are a MUST to help balance pH.  my favorite choice for folks with cancer is Proactazyme plus and PDA Combo, these are great choices with balancing pH and assisting with proper digestion.  You can’t nourish a sick body if the food processor, a.k.a. digestive system can’t process the nutrients.  A lack of hydrochloric acid leads to excess lactic acid in the body, which sets the stage for cancer to thrive.  These are taken with meals to help the body metabolize food properly so as to avoid a buildup of acid waste and toxins.  They are also taken between meals to help rid the body of excess proteins that may be causing acid in the blood.

 

PRINCIPLE #3: STRENGTHEN THE IMMUNE SYSTEM

The body normally and regularly produces cancer cells due to free radical damage, environmental factors or other causes.  A healthy immune system recognizes and destroys these defective cells.  When the immune system is unable to recognize these deviant cells or is too weak to destroy them, the disease we call cancer takes root.

immune-system

There are many reasons why the immune system becomes weakened; poor nutritional intake is a major factor for many.  The loss or destruction of friendly bacteria in the intestinal tract is another.  Excessive sugar consumption supplies cancer cells with the energy they need to proliferate fast, (refined sugar is like fertilizer for cancer cells,) while contributing to chronic inflammation that distresses the immune system.

Improving nutritional intake, especially eating those 7-9 servings of fruits and veggies daily, will help the immune system, as will eliminating chemically laden processed foods.  Reducing intake of sugar, white flour and other simple carbohydrates will also prove helpful.

TRIGGER IMMUNE: helps to rebuild a weakened immune system, enhance vital energy and immune function and increase white blood cell production and platelet count.  It is very helpful in recovering from chemotherapy and can also be taken during chemotherapy to strengthen the system to resist toxic affects from chemotherapy.

 

IMMUNE STIMULATOR:  is another supplement that can boost the immune system to fight cancer.  It not only enhances natural killer cells (lymphocytes), which kill cancer cells, it also increases T-cell production and antibody production.  An important benefit of Immune simulator is its ability to enhance cellular communication, which helps the immune system identify and target calls it needs to destroy.

UNA DE GATO COMBINATION: is another herbal formula that strengthens a weakened immune system.  The principle ingredient, Una de Gato, has been used in South American for cancer treatment and contains compounds that inhibit tumor growth in animals.

 

PRINCIPLE #4: DETOXIFY

The human body is bombarded with toxins, heavy metals, chlorine and thousands of chemicals that we breathe in, consume in our diet or absorb through our skin.  These all cause free radicals in the body and contribute to the environment of cancer.

chemical

 

Avoiding these toxins is part of both cancer prevention and holistic cancer therapy.  In particular, avoid or eliminate refined and processed foods (especially foods raised with pesticides, antibiotics or steroids), toxic cleaning products (such as laundry detergents, skin care items, fluoride toothpaste, etc.) and chlorinated and fluoridated water. Research the ingredients that are in cleaning and health/beauty products before you purchase, we all carry mini computers today called “smart phones” which can give you information lickety split.  Also, avoid microwaved or irradiated food and protect yourself from electrical equipment (electromagnetic pollution may be a major causal factor in cancer).

It is also helpful to assist the body in detoxifying from these substances using any of the following supplements:

For starters: E-TEA or also referred to as Essiac Tea is a famous anticancer formula that helps the body eliminate toxins.  It improves lymphatic drainage and stimulates the immune system.

ALL CELL DETOX:  is another good, general cleansing formula that is based on a Native American medicine man’s cancer remedy.  It reduces inflammation, supports the liver and digestive system and helps neutralize acid.

BLOOD BUILD:  is a supplement I think everyone should use cancer or not at least 3 times a year.  it nourishes the blood and helps increase its volume.  It is an excellent formula for helping the body rebuild after chemotherapy.

 

PRINCIPLE #5: USE ANTIOXIDANTS

Our need for oxygen exceed the demand for any nutrient, even water, because we need oxygen for normal energy production in the cell.  You can go 3 weeks with zero food, and 3 days even without water, but you cannot go 3 minutes without oxygen.  Oxygen can also produce free radicals that can damage normal cells and cause cancer. Antioxidant nutrients protect the body from this free radical damage, thereby reducing cancer risk.  Antioxidants can also be used in a treatment program for cancer, because they help protect the body from harmful side effects of radiation and chemotherapy.

 

Some antioxidants to consider would include:  HIGH POTENCY GRAPINE:  which is an extract of grape seed that helps reduce inflammation and prevent cell damage, and GREEN TEA EXTRACT: which contains polyphenols called catechins, powerful antioxidants that protect cells from cancer and kill cancer cells.  One of these catechins is epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which was shown in several studies to kill cancer cells without harming healthy tissue.

One of my all time favorites is THAI-GO: its a liquid which many cancer patients will assimilate liquids easier, but this contains xanthones, a powerful antioxidant that has been shown in numerous studies to inhibit cancer cells and aid in tumor reduction.  These compounds cause apoptosis (or preprogrammed cell death) in cancer cells.  Xanthones exert cytotoxic (cancer cell killing) effects against human hepatocellular carcinoma cells, and have been shown to inhibit the growth of human leukemia HL-60 cells.  Xanthones have also been shown to be effective against human breast cancer SKBR3 cells.

IF-RELIEF: also contains xanthones and can be helpful for reducing chronic inflammation and pain.

PRINCIPLE #6: KILL CANCER CELLS

For those diagnosed with cancer, it is important to kill off the cancerous cells.  The problem is that chemotherapy and radiation also cause damage to healthy cells.  Killing cancer cells also produces toxins that the body MUST eliminate.

There are some natural compounds that can help kill cancer cells, too.  PAW PAW CELL REG: is a standardized extract of acetogenins from the American Paw paw tree.  These compounds have been shown in scientific research to cause apoptosis (preprogrammed cell death) in cancer cells by inhibiting their energy production.

Paw Paw Cell Reg is not appropriate for all cancers and should be used as a part of a comprehensive cancer program.  However, even if one chooses to use chemotherapy drugs.  Paw Paw may still be beneficial.  It has also been shown to reduce chemotherapy drug resistance.  By itself, paw pas doesn’t have the side effects of hair loss, weight loss, extreme nausea and compromised immunity.  It may cause nausea in larger doses however.

Paw paw is NOT recommended as a supplement for preventing cancer.  It is only appropriate when a person HAS cancer.  Paw paw is also ineffective against leukemia, lymphoma and other cancers that do not involve tumors.

Another supplement that can help the body destroy cancer cells, is HIGH POTENCY PROTEASE,  it breaks down the protein coat on cancer cells and also helps prevent cancer cells that are breaking down from creating a toxic load on nearby healthy cells.  It is taken BETWEEN meals for this purpose, and taken WITH meals to enhance digestion.

PRINCIPLE #7: INCREASE JOY AND PLEASURES

One German study shows a commonality that all cancer patients experienced a trauma and an unresolved psychological issue shortly before the cancer developed.  Stress is a big component of cancer because psychological stress creates physical stress that dramatically reduces immune function.

laughter.jpg

Reducing stress should be a stress-less task.  That’s why the goal here is not to reduce stress , but rather to deliberately seek out joy and pleasure.  A pleasurable, happy experience has a more positive effect on the immune system and healing than the stressful effects of an experience.

So, seek out pleasurable experiences. Find things that make you laugh.  Spend time with family, friends or pets.  Take a walk in the fresh air and sunshine.  Surround yourself with pleasing colors, smells, sounds.  Listen to favorite music; get up and dance.  Listen to calming, meditative music.  Take a hot bath in Epsom salts and lavender oil.  Treat yourself to a  full body massage, take a mini vacation or go to a spa for the day.

 

You can also reduce stress by taking some herbal support like NUTRI-CALM: which replenishes  the nervous system and adrenals.  ADRENAL SUPPORT : will help build stamina and promote healing as well as giving the body more ability to cope with stress.  Another option is CHINESE STRESS RELIEF:  which can assist the body’s ability to relax, counteracting stress.

Cancer is a difficult multi-facet disease to work with, but many folks have successfully recovered from cancer using both natural and conventional therapies or a combination of the two.  Seek out professional assistance in designing the holistic program that is a proper fit for you.  Remember, there is hope!

Vaccines… Should they be avoided?

vaccine

This is certainly a controversial topic, are vaccinations safe?  Are they really protecting us from what we are being vaccinated for?  Are there side-effects that should be considered before receiving any of them?  Personally & professionally I felt there is reason for DOUBT.  Having my 1st two children both having adverse reactions to their MMR shot, really placed me as a mother and as a Doctor of Naturopathy in the quest for answers, and searching for reasons why these vaccinations are better to receive vs. allowing the body to create it’s own natural immunity from exposure.  I found some interesting answers as I began to dig into this topic.  What I’ve compiled is NOT my own statements, but statements and research gathered.

So, what I put together are documented research by other professionals , that will  allow my readers to make their own decisions.  I have my own professional/personal view on this topic, however, my purpose is not to share that one way or the other, it is to share some factual information and leave the rest to my blog followers.

______________________________________________________________

HERE WE GO

Dr. James R. Shannon, former director of the National Institutes of Health, declared, “The only safe vaccine is one that is never used.” (Mullins, Eustace, Murder by Injection: The story of the Medical Conspiracy Against America. The National Council for Medical Research, P.O. Box 1105, Staunton, Virginia 24401, p. 145)

I want to walk you back in time to the 1800’s, people were contracting something called “smallpox”.  This was not a pretty virus by any stretch.  Folks were dying, and those who managed to live through the outbreak, were scarred for life from the pox.

The Cowpox vaccine was believed to be able to immunize people against smallpox.  When this vaccine was introduced, there was already a decline in the number of cases of smallpox.  Japan introduced mandatory vaccination in 1872.  In 1892, there were 165,774 cases of smallpox with 29,979 deaths DESPITE the vaccination program.  A very stringent compulsory smallpox vaccine program, which prosecuted people refusing the vaccine, was instituted in England in 1867.  Within 4 years 97.5% of folks between the ages of 2 -50 had been vaccinated.  The following year England experienced the WORST smallpox epidemic in its countries history, with 44,840 deaths.(Null, Gary, “Vaccination: An Analysis of the Health Risks,” Port Townsend Letter for Doctors & Patients, Dec. 2003, p 78)

Between 1871 and 1880 the incidence  of smallpox escalated from 28 to 46 per 100,000.  So does this suggest that the smallpox vaccine was effective or not?

Much of the success attributed to vaccination programs may actually have been due to improvement in public health related to water sanitation and better quality of drinking water, less crowded living condition, better nutrition and an overall higher standard of living.  Typically the incidence of a disease was clearly declining before the vaccine for that disease was introduced.  In England, the incidence of polio had already decreased by 82% BEFORE the polio vaccine was introduced in 1956.

In the early 1900s an Indiana physician, Dr. W.B. Clarke, stated, “Cancer was practically unknown until compulsory vaccination with cowpox vaccine began to be introduced.  I have had to deal with 200 cases of cancer, and I never saw a case of cancer in an unvaccinated person” (Mullins, Eustace, Murder by Injection, p. 132)

There appears to be a widely held belief that vaccines should not be criticized, because the public might refuse to take them.  This is valid only IF the benefits exceed the KNOWN risks of the vaccines. Does valid research prove that the benefits exceed the risks?

MY QUESTION… “DO VACCINES ACTUALLY PREVENT DISEASE?”

I believe this question to be important, yet I cannot seem to find and adequate study suggesting that they do.  What I have found is that vaccines are extremely profitable for the drug companies that are manufacturing them, and recent legislation in the U.S. has exempted lawsuits against the pharmaceutical firms in the event of adverse reactions to vaccines, which are quite common reported.

In 1975 Germany stopped requiring pertussis (whooping cough) vaccination.  Today less than 10% of German children are vaccinated against pertussis.  The number of cases of pertussis has steadily gown down even though far fewer children are receiving the pertussis vaccine. (Gary Null interview with Dr. Dean Black, April 7. 1995)

Measles outbreaks have occurred in schools with vaccination rates over 98% in all parts of the U.S. including areas that had reported no cases of measles for years.  As measles immunization rates rise to high levels, measles becomes a disease being seen only in vaccinated people.  The World Health Organizations has conceded that persons administered the measles vaccine have a  14 times greater likelihood of contracting the disease than those who remain unvaccinated. (National Health Federation Bulletin, November 1969)

In 1986 there were 1300 cases of pertussis in Kansas and 90% of these cases occurred in children who had been adequately vaccinated.  Similar vaccine failures have been reported from Nova Scotia where pertussis continues to be occurring despite universal vaccination.  Pertussis remains endemic in the Netherlands where for more than 20 years 96% of children have received 3 pertussis shots by the age of 12 months. (DeMelker HE, et al, Pertussis in the Netherlands: /an outbreak despite high levels of immunization with whole-cell vaccine, Emerging Infectious Diseases, 1997; 3(2): 175-8, Centers for Disease Control.)

After institution of diphtheria vaccinations in England and Wales in 1894, the number of deaths from diphtheria rose by 20% in the subsequent 15 years.  Germany had compulsory vaccination in 1939. The rate of diphtheria spiraled to 150,000 cases that year, whereas Norway, which did not have compulsory vaccination, had only 50 cases of diphtheria the same year.

The continued presence of these infectious diseases in children who have received vaccines proves that life-long immunity, which follows natural infections, does NOT occur in people receiving the vaccines.  THE INJECTION PROCESS PLACES THE VIRAL PARTICLES INTO THE BLOOD WITHOUT PROVIDING ANY CLEAR WAY TO ELIMINATE THESE FOREIGN SUBSTANCES.

SO WHY DO VACCINES FAIL TO PROTECT AGAINST DISEASE?

Walene James, author of Immunization: The Reality Behind the Myth, states that the full inflammatory response is needed to created real immunity. (Gary Null Interview with Walene James, April 6, 1995)

Prior to the introduction of the measles and mumps vaccines, children got measles and mumps and in the great majority of cases these disease were benign.  Vaccines “trick” the body so it does not mount a complete inflammatory response to the injected virus.

VACCINES & SUDDEN INFANT DEATH SYNDROME

The incidence of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) has grown from .55 per 1000 live births in 1953 to 12.8 per 1000 in 1992 in Olmstead County, Minnesota.  The peak incidence for SIDS is age 2 to 4 months, the exact time most vaccines are being given to children.  85% of cases of SIDS occur in the first 6 months of infancy.  The increase in SIDS as a percentage of total infant deaths has risen from 2.5 per 1000 in 1953 to 17.9 per 1000 in 1992.  This rise in SIDS deaths has occurred during a period when nearly every childhood disease was declining due to improved sanitation and medical progress except SIDS.  These deaths from SIDS did increase during a period when the number of vaccines given to a child was steadily rising to 36 per child.

Dr. W. Torch was able to document 12 infant deaths that appeared within 3 1/2 and 19 hours of a DPT (diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus) immunization.  He later reported 11 new cases of SIDS death and one near miss that had occurred within 24 hours of a DPT injection.  When he studied 70 cases of SIDS two-thirds of these victims had been vaccinated from one half day to 3 weeks prior to their deaths. (Torch, W.S., Diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus (DPT) immunizations: a potential cause of the sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), Neurology, 1982: 32-4 A 169 abstract.)

None of these deaths was attributed to vaccines,  vaccines are a sacred cow and nothing against them appears in the mass media, because they are so profitable to pharmaceutical firms.  There is a valid reason to think that not only are vaccines worthless in preventing disease, they are counterproductive because they injure the immune system, permitting cancer, auto-immune diseases and SIDS to cause much disability and death.

SO LETS ASK ARE VACCINES STERILE?

Dr. Robert Strecker claimed that the Department of Defense (DOD) was given $10,000,000 in 1969 to create the AIDS virus, to be used as a population reducing weapon against blacks. (Collin, Jonathan, They deployed the AIDS virus.  The Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients, April 1988, p. 152)  By use of the Freedom of Information Act, Strecker was able to learn that the DOD had secured funds from Congress to perform studies on immune destroying agents for germ warfare. (Department of Defense Appropriations for 1970, Hearings Before a Subcommittee of the Committee on Appropriations, House of Representatives, Ninety-first Congress, First Sessions, H.D. 15090)

Once produced, the vaccine was given in two locations, according to Strecker,  the smallpox vaccine containing HIV was given to 100,000,000 Africans in 1977.  Over 2000 young white homosexual males in New York City were given the hepatitis B  vaccine that contained  the HIV virus in 1978.  This vaccine was given at New York City Blood Center.  The hepatitis B vaccine containing the HIV virus was also administered to homosexual males in San Francisco, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Houston and Chicago in 1978 and 1979.  U.S. Public Health epidemiology studies have disclosed that these same 6 cities had the highest incidence of AIDS, SIDS related complex (ARC) and death rates from HIV, when compared to other U.S. cities.

Understand, when a new virus is introduced into a community, it takes 20 yrs. for the number of cases to double.  If the apparently fabricated story that the green monkey bites of Pygmies led to the HIV epidemic, the alleged monkey bites in the 1940’s should have produced a peak in the incidence of HIV in the 1960s, at which time HIV was nonexistent in Africa.  The World Health Organization (WHO) began an African smallpox vaccination campaign in 1977 that targeted urban population centers and avoided Pygmies.  If the green monkey bites of the Pygmies truly caused the HIV epidemic, the incidence of HIV in Pygmies should have been higher than in urban citizens.  However, the opposite was true.

In 1954 Dr. Bernice Eddy (a bacteriologist) discovered live monkey viruses in what was supposedly sterile inactivated polio vaccine developed by Dr. Jonas Salk. (Harris, R. J. et al, Contaminant viruses in two live vaccines produced in  chick cells. J Hyg (London), 1966, Mar:64(1): 1-7) This discovery was NOT well received at the NIH and Eddy was demoted.

Later Eddy, working with Sarah Stewart, discovered the SE polyoma virus.  This virus was quite important because it caused cancer in every animal receiving it.  Yellow Fever vaccine had previously been found to contain the avian (bird) leukemia virus.  Later Dr. Hilleman isolated the SV 40 virus from both the Salk and Sabin polio vaccines.  There were 40 different viruses they were trying to eradicate in these polio vaccines. (Horowitx, Leonard G., Emerging Viruses: AIDS & Ebola, p. 484, Tetrahedron Inc. Suite 147, 206 North 4th Ave., Sandpoint, Idaho 83864, 1-888-508-4787, tetra@tetrahedron.org)

They were never able to get rid of these viruses that were contaminating the polio vaccines.  The SV 40 viruses caused malignancies.  It has now been identified in:

  • 4% of the cases of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (Vilchez, R.A. et al, Association between simian virus 40 and non-Hodgkin lymphoma.  Lancet 2002, Mar 9;359 (9309): 817-823).
  • 36% of brain tumors: (Bu, X., A study of simian virus 40 infection and its origin in human brain tumors. Zhonghu, Lui Xing Bing Xue Zhi 2000 Feb: 21 (1): 19-21)
  • 18% of healthy blood samples, and 22% of healthy semen samples, mesothiolomas and other malignancies.
  • By the time of this discovery SV 40 had already been injected into 10,000,000 people in the Salk Vaccine.  Gastric digestion inactivates some of the SV 40 in the Sabin vaccine.  However, the isolation of strains of the Sabin polio vaccine from all 30 cases of Guillain Barre syndrome (Friedrich, F. et al, Temporal association between the isolation of Sabin-related poliovirus vaccine strains and the Guillain-Barre syndrome. REv Inst Med Trop Sao Paulo 1996 Jan-Feb: 38(1): 55-8) in Brazil suggests that significant numbers of people are able to be infected from this vaccine.  All 38 of these patients had received Sabin polio vaccine months to years before the onset of GBS.  The incidence of non-Hodgkin lymphoma has “mysteriously” doubled since the 1970s.

Dr. John Martin, professor of pathology at the University of Southern California, was employed by the Viral Oncology Branch of the Bureau of Biologics (FDA) from 1976 to 1980.  While employed there he identified foreign DNA in the live polio vaccine Orimune Lederle that suggested serious vaccine contamination.  He warned his supervisors about this problem and was told to discontinue his work as it was outside the scope of testing required for polio vaccine.

Later Marin learned that all eleven of the African green monkeys used to grow the Lederle polio virus Orimune had grown simian cytomegalovirus from kidney cell cultures.  Lederle was aware of this viral contamination, as their Cytomegaloviral Contamination Plan clearly showed in 1972. (Horowitz, Leonard, Emerging Viruses: Aids and Ebola p 492)

The Bureau of Biologics decided not to pursue the matter, so production of infected polio vaccine continued.

In 1955 Martin identified unique cell-destroying viruses termed  stealth viruses in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome.  These viruses lacked genes that would enable the immune system to recognize them.  Thus they were protected by the body’s failure to develop antiviral antibodies. In March of 1995, Martin learned that some of the stealth viruses had originated from African green monkey simian cytomegalovirus of a type known to infect man.

The Lederle vaccine experience suggests that those who want to be in charge are not concerned about sloppy and dangerous preparation of vaccines.  Animal cross infection is a huge unsolved current problem for all vaccine manufacturing.  If this vaccine production sounds like an unbelievable mess to you, you are right.

“ANIMAL CROSS INFECTION IS A HUGE UNSOLVED CURRENT PROBLEM FOR ALL VACCINE MANUFACTURING.” (James Howenstine, M.D.)

OTHER DANGERS FROM VACCINES

In the March 4, 1977 issue of Science, Jonas and Darrell Salk warn, “Live virus vaccines against influenza or poliomyelitis may in each instance produce the disease it intended to prevent.  The live virus against measles and mumps may produce such side effects as encephalitis (brain damage).”

The swine flu vaccine was administered to the American public even though there had never been a case of swine flu identified in a human.  Farmers refused to use the vaccine, because it killed too many animals.  Within a few months of use in humans, this vaccine caused many cases of serious nerve injury (Guillain Barre syndrome).

The Washington Post on January 26, 1988, featured an article that mentioned that all cases of polio since 1979 had been caused by the polio vaccine, with no known cases of polio from a wild strain since 1979. (Mullins, Eustace, Murder by injection, p 146)

This might have created  a perfect situation to discontinue the vaccine, but the vaccine is still given.  Vaccines are a wonderful source of profits with no risks to the drug companies since the vaccine injuries are now recompensed by the government.

The steady escalation in the number of vaccines administered has been followed by an identical rise in the incidence of autoimmune diseases (rheumatoid arthritis, subacute lupus erythematosus, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis, asthma) seen in children.  While there is a genetic transmission of some of these diseases, many are probably due to the injury from foreign protein particles, mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde and other toxic agents injected in vaccines. (Null, Gary, Vaccination: An analysis of the health risks, Part I, Townsend Letter for Doctors & Patients, Octo 2003, pp. 90-95)

In 1999, the rotavirus vaccine was recommended for all infants by the Centers for Disease Control.  When this vaccine program was instituted several infants died and many had life-endangering bowel obstructions.  Prelicensure trials of the rotavirus vaccine had demonstrated an increased incidence of intussusception 30 times greater than normal (Null, Gary, Vaccination: An analysis of the health risks. Part 3, Townsend Letter for Doctors & Patients, Dec, 2003, p. 78), but the vaccine was released anyway without special warnings to practitioners to be on the lookout for bowel problems.  Children’s vaccines are often not studied for toxicity, possibly because such study might eliminate them from being used.

A large study from Australia showed that the risk of developing encephalitis from the pertussis vaccine was 5 times greater than the risk of developing encephalitis by contacting pertussis by natural methods.

Naturally acquired immunity by illness evolves by spread of a virus from the respiratory tract to the liver, thymus, spleen and bone marrow.  When symptoms begin, the entire immune response has been mobilized to repel the invading virus.  This complex immune system response creates antibodies that confer life long immunity against that invading virus and prepares the child to respond promptly to an infection by the same virus in the future.

Vaccination, in contrast, results in the persisting of the live virus or other foreign antigens within the cells of the body, a situation that may provoke autoimmune reactions as the body attempts to destroy its own infected cells.  There is no surprise that the incidence of autoimmune disease  (rheumatoid arthritis, subacute lupus erythematosus, multiple sclerosis, asthma, psoriasis) has risen sharply in this era of multiple vaccine immunization.

VACCINE-INDUCED TYPE 1 DIABETES MELLITUS

Dr. John Classen has published 29 articles on vaccine-induced diabetes. (Classen, JB et al. Association between type 1 diabetes and HIB vaccine, BMJ 1999: 319:1133.)  At least 8 of 10 children with Type 1 (insulin needing) diabetes have this disease as a result of vaccination.  These children may have avoided measles, mumps and whooping cough, but they have received something far worse; an illness that shortens life expectancy by 10 to 15 years and results in a life requiring constant medical care.

Classen has shown that in Finland, the introduction of hemophilus type B vaccine caused three times as many cases of type 1 diabetes as the number of cases of deaths and brain damage from the hemophilus influenza type b it might have prevented.

In New Zealand, the incidence of type 1 diabetes in children rose by 61% after an aggressive vaccine program against hepatitis.  This same program has been started in the U.S., so we can now look forward to many cases of type 1 diabetes in children.  Similar rises in type 1 diabetes have been seen in England, Italy, Sweden, and Denmark after immunization programs against hepatitis B.

TOXIC SUBSTANCES ARE NEEDED TO MAKE VACCINES.

Vaccines contain toxic substances that are needed to prevent the vaccines from becoming infected or to improve the performance of the vaccine.  Among these are mercury, formaldehyde and aluminum. (Brain, Sept. 2001)

In the past 10 years, the number of autistic children has risen between 200 and 500 percent in every state in the U.S.  This sharp rise in autism followed the introduction of measles, mumps and rubella vaccine in 1975.

U.S. Representative Dan Burton’s healthy grandson was given injections for 9 diseases in one day.  These injections were instantly followed by autism.  These injections contain a preservative of mercury called thimerosal.  The body received 41 times the amount of mercury that is capable of harm to the body.  Mercury is a neurotoxin that can injure the brain and nervous system.  And tragically, it did.

In the United States the number of compulsory vaccine injections has increased from 10 to 36 in the last 25 years.  During this period , there has been a simultaneous increase in the number of children suffering learning disabilities and attention deficit disorder.  Many vaccines contain aluminum.  A new disease called macrophagic myofascitis causes pain in muscles, bones and joints.  All people with this disease have received aluminum-containing vaccines. (Incao, Philip, M.D., Letter to Representative Dale Van Vyven, Ohio House of Representatives, March, 1, 1999, provided to http://www.garynull.com by the Natural Immunity Information Network.)   Deposits of aluminum are able to remain as an irritant in tissues and disturb the immune and nervous system for a lifetime.

“Nearly ALL vaccines contain aluminum and mercury.  These metals appear to play an important role in the etiology of Alzheimer’s disease.  An expert at the  1997 International Vaccine Conference, Dr. Hugh Fudenberg, related that people who had 5 or more flu vaccine shots between 1970 and 1980 increased their likelihood of developing Alzheimer’s disease by a factor of 10 over those who had 2 or fewer flu shots.

When we take vaccines we are playing a modern version of Russian Roulette.  We not only get exposed to aluminum, mercury, formaldehyde and foreign cell proteins, but we may get simian virus 40 and other dangerous viruses that can cause cancer, leukemia and other severe health problems, because the vaccine pool is contaminated due to careless animal isolation techniques.  Congress has protected the manufacturers from lawsuits, so dangerous vaccines simply increase profits at no risk to the drug companies.”  ( Dr. James Howenstine, M.D. Wellbeing Journal,. Vol., 14, NO2)

U.S. Children at age 2 months, began receiving hepatitis B vaccine in December 2000. No peer-reviewed studies of the safety of hepatitis B in this age bracket has been done.  Over 36,000 adverse reactions with 440 deaths were soon reported but the true incidence is much higher as reporting is voluntary, so only approximately 10% of adverse reactions get reported.  This means that about 5000 infants are dying annually from the hepatitis B vaccine.  The CDC’s chief of epidemiology admits that the frequency of serious reactions to hepatitis B vaccine is 10 times higher than for other vaccines.  A vaccine expert, Dr. Philip Incao, states that “The conclusion is obvious that the risks of hepatitis B vaccination far outweighs the benefits.” (Ibid.)  “Once a vaccine is mandated, the vaccine manufacturer is NO longer liable for adverse reactions.” (Dr. James Howenstine, M.D. Wellbeing Journal,. Vol., 14, NO2)

Dr. W.B. Clarke’s important observation that cancer was not found in unvaccinated individuals demands an explanation and one now appears forthcoming.  All vaccines given over a short period of time to an immature immune system deplete the thymus gland (the primary gland involved in immune reaction) of irreplaceable immature immune cells.  Each of these cells could have multiplied and developed into an army of valuable cells to combat infection and growth of abnormal cells.  When these immune cells have been used up, permanent immunity may not appear.  The Arthur Research Foundation in Tucson, Arizona, estimates that up to 60% of our immune system may be exhausted by multiple mass vaccines. (Rowen, Robert, Your first consultation with Dr. Rowen, p. 20)

In 2005, 36 vaccines were required in total for children, and in 2016, IF  I managed to count right, we are in the 50 dose range: (https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/schedules/hcp/imz/child-adolescent-shell.html)

Only 10% of immune cells are permanently lost when a child is permitted to develop natural immunity from disease.  There needs to be grave concern about these immune system injuring vaccinations!  Could the people who approve these mass vaccinations know that they are impairing the health of these children; many of who are being doomed to requiring much medical care in the future? Compelling evidence is available that the development of the immune system after contracting the usual childhood diseases matures and renders it capable to fight infection and malignant cells in the future.

The use of multiple vaccines, which prevents natural immunity, promotes the development of allergies and asthma.  A New Zealand study disclosed that 23% of vaccinated children developed asthma, as compared to zero in unvaccinated children.

Cancer was a very rare illness in the 1890s.  This evidence about immune system injury from vaccinating affords a plausible explanation for Clarke’s finding that only vaccinated individuals got cancer.  Some radical adverse change in health occurred in the early 1900s to permit cancer to explode and vaccinating appears to be the reason.

 

“Vaccines are an unnatural phenomenon.  My guess is that if enough people said NO to immunizations there would be a striking improvement in general health with nature back in the immunizing business instead of man.  Having a child vaccinated should be a choice, NOT a requirement.  Medical and religious exemptions are permitted by most states.

When governmental policies require vaccinations before children enter schools, coercion  has overruled the lack of evidence of vaccine efficacy and safety.  There is NO proof that vaccines work, and they are never studied for safety before release.  My opinion is that there is overwhelming evidence that vaccines are dangerous and the only reason for their existence is to increase profits of pharmaceutical firms.

If you are forced to immunize your children so they can enter school, obtain a notarized statement from the director of the facility that they will accept full financial responsibility for any adverse reaction from the vaccine.  Since there is at least a 2% risk of a serious adverse reactions, they may be smart enough to permit your child to escape a dangerous procedure. Recent legislation passed by Congress gives the government the power to imprison people refusing to take vaccines (smallpox, anthrax, etc,). this would be troublesome to enforce if large numbers of citizen declined to be vaccinated at the same time.” (James Howenstine, M.D. Wellbeingjournal,:VOL., 14, NO2… is a board-certified specialist in internal medicine who spent 34 years caring for office and hospital patients.  The second edition of Dr. Howenstein’s book, “A Physician’s Guide To Natural Health Products That Work, is out in digital format.  This second edition contains 620 pages, references, and an expanded index. and addresses many additional subjects as well as important new advances in medicine.  Readers may download the book at http://www.naturalhealthteam.com.)

Much of what I have written here has been quoted and the research information is NOT mine, all resources have been noted within the post.

 

It is my hope that you will continue to do your own research as to the safety and necessity of whether you should allow you or your loved ones to have vaccinations administered. It should be a choice NOT a forced requirement, hence from where I stand, they are failing to prove that these vaccines are protecting folks from what they claim they should.

Why should you consider doing a QFA Analysis?

Leave a testimonial to help others

I wanted to address and point out  why  as a Practitioner, I like to utilize a QFA Analysis with my clients, it is NOT medical diagnosis, but we look for the subtle imbalances that begin the trickle effect within our body that can later lead to being sick.

It makes good preventative sense and guess what…. your body fluids don’t lie…. Dr. Claude Bernard’s theory claimed that illness and disease are caused primarily by imbalances in the body’s interstitial fluid environment. This theory later developed into the science known as Biological Terrain. A healthy cell living in an unhealthy environment will fail to thrive.   

 

   A certain amount of stress is necessary for life. Chronic stress can create disturbances within the cellular environment. The Biological Terrain may reflect this state of imbalance. In today’s stress-filled world, however, excessive levels of stress are creating excessive work for the body’s cells and its Biological Terrain. Chronic stresses, day after day can, in fact, prove to be very harmful to the body. Juggling work, home and family responsibilities, worries over insurance and mortgage payments, sitting for hours in rush-hour traffic, too much or not enough exercise, too little sleep and poor diets are making it more and more challenging for the body and its cells to maintain homeostasis.

 

In addition, continued exposure to poisons and toxins in the air, water and environment are creating additional internal biochemical stress. As a result, deficiencies and excesses are being created that are severely affecting the integrity of the Biological Terrain within the body. This, in turn, may be contributing to the development of degenerative ailments and premature aging.

 

A compromised terrain is less equipped to support the health of the trillions of cells that rely upon it for nourishment and support. The body can store toxins and chemical insults/overloads. Like an onion, these toxins and insults can be peeled away to reveal underlying patterns and imbalances. The monitoring of the pH, redox and resistivity of the biological fluids may reveal the effects that these factors are having upon the underlying chemistry of the cells.

A QFA 300 does not diagnose illness or disease. It is not a treatment device. This computerized device assesses, urine and saliva. It was designed to monitor subtle and specific parameters of the Biological Terrain environment.

Quantitative Fluid Analysis, involves the monitoring of your saliva and urine for pH, redox and resistivity. These parameters may provide valuable information about your body’s cells and the interstitial environment called the Biological Terrain that nourishes those cells.

Following a 12-hour fast, first morning urine and saliva specimens are obtained. The QFA 300™ device then assesses these fluids. Results are obtained within minutes, offering you valuable information. This data may increase your understanding of your specific biochemical requirements. This information then us helps to choose a diet and nutritional program that best suits your particular needs. Fast for 10-12 hours prior to your QFA™. Complete your dinner the evening prior to the QFA™ no later than 8:00-9:00 PM. Avoid scheduling your QFA within 24 hours of airplane travel. Women: Also avoid scheduling your QFA™ during your menstrual period. A QFA™ performed during this period would show elevated pH results.

After dinner, brush your teeth and refrain from eating or drinking anything until after your QFA. This includes chewing gum, throat lozenges and candy. Take any prescribed medications as directed with only a small amount of water. Discontinue supplements 48 hours prior to your QFA™. Refrain from using any toothpaste, mouthwashes or mouth rinses both at bedtime and the morning of your QFA. Also avoid the use of any lipstick or makeup around your mouth and lips. Such substances can change the chemistry of the mouth and your saliva Your QFA analysis measures the values of pH, redox and resistivity.

 

These measurements may offer valuable information about the electrons, minerals, hydration and nutrients in your Biological Terrain environment. Because your biochemistry is unique, these values may help your clinician design the nutritional program that is best suited for your particular needs.

A QFA does not diagnose an illness or disease; it monitors specific parameters of your Biological Terrain.

  • Your pH measurement will indicate the acidity or alkalinity of your biological fluids. Specific pH levels are necessary for optimum digestion and absorption of foods, activation of enzymes and binding of hormones with their receptor sites.
  • Your redox measurement may provide data regarding the level of electrons in your fluids. Electrons are essential for life. Long-term exposure to such factors as chronic stress, poor diets, environmental toxins, chemicals and damaging organisms such as viruses, bacteria and fungi may interfere with the cells’ abilities to produce the substances needed for electron and ATP production. This means ENERGY, yet many pull themselves thru their day, their energy levels are low, they deal with fatigue everyday or fake their system thru the process by incorporating energy drinks, caffeine, that only covers the symptoms it doesn’t address the real cause.
  • Your resistivity results involve the measurement of minerals in your fluids. Minerals are needed for many critical actions and reactions in the body, as well as for building and maintaining bone and muscle tissue. When fluids become congested with too many minerals, stagnation and congestion may occur which may limit the cells’ abilities to function optimally. Too few minerals in the fluids may limit the body’s ability to maintain its bone and muscle function. Many people have actually gotten used to muscle cramps, joint pains and accept it is a normal process of everyday function, or I hear this a lot… (well I’m not a spring chicken anymore)…So many are totally mineral depleted, or what I refer to as “lack of available minerals”, doesn’t mean the minerals are there it means there are reasons your body is choosing NOT to metabolize them.
  • If you are interested in seeing where YOUR levels are and what foods and lifestyle changes you could invoke towards feeling better and having more pep in your step.  For many it will be a PROCESS, not an over night success.  then please go to http://mkt.com/harvested-health-llc and pre-pay for a 1 hr. consultand the QFA analysis package and we can get your vehicle (body) blazing new trails.  * please note I can do phone consults but QFA Analysis needs to be done in office*

Healthfully yours, Jodi Barnett N.D.
