Americans are the most vaccinated people on the planet. And the sickest! Nearly half of the people in the United States suffer from at least one chronic illness.
“Nearly half of Americans suffer at least one chronic disease, everything from allergies to heart disease – 20 million more than doctors had anticipated this year, researchers say. And they warn that the fast-growing toll, now at 125 million among a population of 276 million, will reach 157 million by 2020. One-fifth of Americans have two or more chronic illnesses. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.” (Associated Press Nov 29, 2000)
Chronic illnesses include cancer, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, depression, allergies, asthma, autism, Alzheimer’s, learning disorders, attention deficit disorder and many, many others. Most of these diseases were rare or non-existent before mass vaccination.
Is there a relationship between chronic disease and vaccination? The evidence increasingly says “yes!”
First let’s ask, “What are we doing when we vaccinate?” Vaccines inject microorganisms, (or their parts) and toxic chemicals deep into the body. That is a completely unnatural procedure. Why?
Because diseases contracted naturally are ordinarily filtered through a series of immune system defenses. – the nasopharynx, mucus membranes, gastrointestinal tract, various lymphoid tissues – but when the vaccine virus is injected directly into the child’s blood stream it gains access to all of the major tissues and organs of the body without the body’s normal advantage of a total immune response. The immune system is bypassed.
When we prevent the body from externalizing poisons, that is, prevent it from having an acute reaction with fever, malaise, skin eruptions, vomiting, diarrhea and the like, we drive disease deeper into the body where it is difficult or impossible for the individual to externalize it.
Instead of a relatively brief and mild (rarely dangerous) acute infectious disease (measles, mumps, chicken-pox, pertussis etc.) we create deep, long-term, life-long chronic illness, illness that never resolves. Illness that lasts one’s entire life.
For thousands of year the Empirical or “Vitalist” approach to health asserted that when the symptoms of acute illness are suppressed, chronic illness is the result. This has been observed by allopathic physicians as well as natural physicians by some of the greatest minds of their day.
“To check and suppress acute diseases means to suppress Nature’s purifying and healing efforts, and to change the acute constructive reactions into chronic disease conditions.” Henry Lindlahr, MD
“The greatest part of all chronic disease is created through the suppression of acute disease by means of drug poisons and through the destructive effects of the drugs themselves.” Sir William Osler
“Cancer, tuberculosis, Bright’s Disease, and all chronic diseases were once innocent colds.” J. H. Tilden, MD
“Diseases are crises of purification, of toxic elimination. Symptoms are the natural defences of the body. We call them diseases, but in fact they are the cure of diseases.” Hippocrates
By the time a child is 18 months old they are to be injected with forty five vaccines! By the time the child reaches school age (4-6 years) that number jumps to eighty-one different vaccines, according to the Center for Disease Control.
Yet, there is no proof that vaccines have eliminated any childhood disease and nor is there any proof that vaccines are responsible for the decrease in death from childhood diseases. The death rate from these diseases had been decreasing for decades before the vaccine were in use. Ivan Illich, Ph.D. the famous sociologist writes:
The combined death rate from scarlet fever, diphtheria, whooping cough, and measles among children up to fifteen shows that nearly 90% of the total decline in mortality between 1860 and 1965 occurred before the introduction of antibiotics and widespread immunization.
In part this recession may be attributed to improved housing and to a decrease in the virulence of micro-organisms, but by far the most important factor was a higher host resistance due to better nutrition.
The professional practice of physicians cannot be credited with the elimination of old forms of mortality or morbidity, nor should it be blamed for the increased expectancy of life spent in suffering from the new diseases. (Medical Nemesis, Chapter 1-The Epidemics of Modern Medicine By Ivan Illich, Ph.D. (Bantam Books: New York 1976))
The world of vaccination appears to be based more on belief than on science. When viewed longitudinally (that is, over along period of time) the recipients of vaccination appear to develop serious chronic health conditions. For example, the famed Hugh Fudenberg, M.D. says the following:
The chances of getting Alzheimer’s Disease is ten times higher if an individual has had five consecutive flu shots. (National Vaccine Information Center’s First International Conference on Vaccination, September 1997, Arlington, Virginia)
Is this the reason why Alzheimer’s is expected to quadruple in the next few years? (Johns Hopkins Health Newsletter, Nov. 1998)
(Note: Dr. Fudenberg is the world’s leading immunogeneticist. His books are used as texts in medical schools throughout the world. He is the 13th most quoted biologist in the world. He has developed a method of reversing autism using a “blood cleansing” compound known as transfer factor.)
Dr. Fudenberg is of the opinion that the cause of the brain damage from the flu shot is most likely the mercury in the vaccine. Mercury has an affinity for brain tissue. In addition to flu vaccine, mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde are present in childhood vaccines. No, mercury is still in many shots in “trace” amounts which are still harmful.
Non-vaccinated children are healthier and happier than vaccinated children. One reason is because they are permitted to get sick naturally and get well naturally. As Philip Incao, MD writes
One of the best ways to ensure your children’s health is to allow them to get sick. At first hearing, this concept may sound outrageous. Yet childhood illnesses may be of key benefit to a child’s developing immune system and it may be inadvisable to suppress these illnesses with immunizations.
Chiropractors have been in the vanguard of the movement to permit the natural healing abilities of the body to function as they are meant to function. That means not interfering with symptoms; they are nature’s way of externalizing, cleansing and purifying the body. That also means that we should remove anything which interferes with our body function – such as subluxations.
