Challenging the Vaccine Dogma

Challenging the Vaccine Dogma

Mahatma Gandhi said that a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. Most people do not realize that by vaccinating our precious companion animals, we are doing far more harm than good. I believe that if people knew the truth about vaccines, they would be horrified and the barbaric tradition would come to its rightful end. The only real protection from illness comes from following the laws of health mandated in nature.

The flawed philosophy behind the use of vaccines.

The philosophy behind the use of vaccines is based on old, unproven medical superstition. In the 1800’s, French scientist Louis Pasteur theorized that germs, or microorganisms, cause disease and we “catch” colds, viruses, and bacteria by coming into contact with them externally. According to Pasteur’s theory, we must fear germs, and the only way to protect ourselves and our animals from getting sick are by injecting an alien virus into the body, thus providing immunity from that virus (Mikic, 2016). Most people have heard of Pasteur, however, most are unaware that he had a contemporary, a fellow French scientist by the name of Antoine Béchamp. Béchamp produced evidence disease is not caused by invading microorganisms, but by changes in the cells

themselves. He proved that cells shift toward pathogenic forms when triggered by a disturbance, such as being injected by a foreign virus, within the body (Mikic, 2016). According to Béchamp, the disease is not “caught” from germs, but disease-causing microbes thrive in bodies that are weak or imbalanced.

The widely accepted idea that germs should be feared is directly opposed by scientific evidence that germs lie dormant inside the body until the internal environment of the body changes. Our bodies already have cancer, viruses, and more bacteria than cells (Lindlahr, 2010). Once the body’s natural defense, or immune system, is weakened the stage is set to activate the dormant germs. It is then we experience colds, flu, and disease, not because we touched a dirty doorknob or came into contact with an unvaccinated person as they would have us believe.

Do vaccines protect?

The most significant misconceptions society has about vaccines are that they are safe, provide immunity and that they protect individuals and the community. Vaccines never have and never will provide protection from disease AKA immunity. Bacteria do not attack a healthy body. The immune system is our God-given defense against invaders, it is a built-in antivirus system, and it is all our bodies have ever needed to survive and live a healthy life. When a foreign virus is injected directly into the bloodstream, it bypasses the immune systems first line of defense, the mucous membranes of the nose, mouth, and ears. When the body comes into contact with an invader naturally, it is the mucous membranes that initiate the body’s first and most vigorous defense against the invader before it reaches the bloodstream. A surprise attack by a toxic substance is

unnatural and causes the immune system to go into panic mode. This panic mode causes the immune system to attack itself, inhibiting its natural intelligence, putting the body in a chronic inflammatory state increasing the likelihood of disease. Every single injection weakens the immune system which allows viruses and bacteria to take over making illness possible and nearly inevitable.

Vaccines not only cause disease, but they also prevent passing immunity to future generations weakening the DNA that is passed on. The gene pool of humans and our companion animals alike is weakening, and our species are devolving. Generation after generation we are passing on unhealthy predispositions to chronic illnesses that may take at least three to four generations to reverse (Hamilton, p.43). We need to begin the reversal process now by stopping the use of vaccines, pharmaceutical drugs, and embrace a natural lifestyle. If we don’t, we are facing irreparable consequences.

What is in vaccines and are they safe?

Vaccines are not safety tested. In fact, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) states vaccines are safe, but they do not know what is in them because pharmaceutical companies do not have to disclose all of their ingredients as they are considered “proprietary property.” And if the FDA doesn’t know what is in the vaccines, the medical professionals and veterinarians administering them certainly do not. The list of toxic ingredients in vaccines is long, but the top three most disturbing are thimerosal (AKA mercury), aluminum, and formaldehyde. These are “adjuvants”; ingredients added to the vaccine to aid in the effectiveness of the main ingredient which is morbid disease material at best. According to congressional records in 1935, research showed that half

of all dogs had inflammatory reactions to mercury and it was deemed unsafe for vaccines. Mercury is a highly lethal metal, toxic to the brain and no amount is safe, and yet it is still used in vaccines for humans and animals today. Aluminum is a potent carcinogen with the ability to penetrate the blood-brain barrier allowing mercury (and itself) into the central nervous system. Aluminum has been linked to Alzheimer’s, Autism, fatal cancers, and more. Formaldehyde is used in pressed-wood products, glues and adhesives, and is commonly used as a preservative by mortuaries and medical laboratories. It is the main ingredient in embalming fluid. The International Agency for Research on Cancer classifies formaldehyde as a human carcinogen. One does not have to be a scientist to conclude that these ingredients are dangerous and should not be injected into the body of a human or animal. And as if mercury, aluminum, and formaldehyde aren’t scary enough, there is a long list of other disturbing ingredients such as monkey kidney tissue, bacteria, MSG, antibiotics, soy, aborted fetal tissue, Polylobate 80, just to name a few. These substances have a cumulative effect on the body, so every single injection causes compounding harm. According to Dr. James R. Shannon, the former Director of the National Institutes of Health, the only safe vaccine is the one that is never used (Jordan, 2009).

If vaccines are unsafe and cause disease, then why do we vaccinate?

Despite the fact that “germ theory” and vaccinations have been under scrutiny for more than 100 years, and there is no scientific evidence to support them, the undeniable truth has been deliberately hidden from us. Vaccines are a multi-billion dollar cash cow for pharmaceutical companies and the medical establishment, who are indoctrinated by the

pharmaceutical industry who funds them. Vaccines are an economic and power agenda meant to control us and have absolutely nothing to do with our health or the health of our animals. Even Pasteur admitted in the latter part of his life that the germ was “nothing,” the internal environment of the body is everything. But by then it was too late, his early theory had already been spread as gospel, and there was no turning back. In the late 1800’s, the Father of Pharmaceutical Medicine, John D. Rockefeller, and his dynasty of greed would set into motion the conditioning and control of the American mind. Rockefeller became one of the world’s richest men by extracting oil and was looking for ways to further capitalize on his oil monopoly. He came across the idea of using petroleum to create substances that affect the body by suppressing symptoms of an underlying disease. Rockefeller was not keen on competition, so he put into play a plan to discredit all natural healers and healing modalities. He hired a man by the name of Abraham Flexner who convinced Congress that all natural healing modalities were unscientific “quackery.” Despite the fact that nature has been curing for millennia, Congress agreed with Flexner’s findings and began requiring specific medical training by the American Medical Association. Thus our modern drug and hospital-based medicine was born. Born in the most un-American was possible; by snuffing out the competition. Competition who had for millennia been successfully healing disease naturally. But it wasn’t about healing; it was about money. Rockefeller successfully established drug-based medicine, yet he lived to a ripe old age in his 90’s thanks to the care of a naturopath and homeopath (Jordan, 2009). Before the establishment of the western-based medical system in the early 1900’s, the United States was one of the healthiest populations on the planet. Today, we are one of the sickest.

And what if we refuse to vaccinate?

In today’s society, those who exercise their rights and choose not to vaccinate themselves, their children, or their pets are treated like irresponsible, ignorant, dangerous criminals by a brainwashed society and medical community. And yet the same highly vaccinated society is one of the sickest in industrialized cultures on the planet. History proves that vaccinated people were the most diseased. According to Dr. Suzanne Humphries, nutrition, sanitation, and social programs reduced mortality from disease; not vaccines. We are told that vaccines cured polio, when the truth is, polio was naturally declining when they introduced the vaccine. It was mass vaccination that increased the number of polio cases. Everything from cases of the flu to cancer rates are sharply on the rise in this U.S., and our pets are dying younger and younger from diseases that were unheard of just thirty years ago.

Capitalizing on the love for our pets.

People love their pets, and in the U.S. alone they spend billions of dollars on them every year. The pharmaceutical industry saw an opportunity in vaccinating our companion animals and beginning in the 1970’s dogs were vaccinated more frequently. The allopathic veterinary community is not only the perfect vehicle for administering the pharmaceutical industries’ vaccine poison, but they are the critical component in fear mongering pet owners into vaccinating their pets to keep them “safe” and “disease-

free.” And because society has already bought into the vaccine dogma, veterinarians easily convince pet owners their animals also need annual booster vaccines to maintain the effectiveness despite any scientific evidence they provide additional protection. In fact, the American Veterinary Medical Association doesn’t recommend yearly vaccinations, and they haven’t for a more than a decade. I am sure it is no coincidence that vaccines provide up to half of a veterinarians income. Cha-Ching!

Connect the dots for the sake of our animals.

More than 25 years ago, Homeopathic Veterinarian Dr. Stephen Blake said, “Never in history of the world, has there been a greater medical assumption that has caused more deaths and suffering, than vaccinations as we know them today” (Jordan, 2009). Every year, 300,000 dogs and cats die in the U.S. from adverse reactions to vaccines. I have seen firsthand the devastating, and fatal effects of vaccines in my animals. On July 27th, 2013 my ten-year-old English Mastiff, Cyrus was injected with a 'DA2PPV' combination vaccination and a rabies vaccine. Concerned that the vaccines may be too much for my aging companion to handle, I asked the veterinarian if it was a good idea or even necessary. I was told that it was essential to keep him healthy and protect him from dangerous diseases. Cyrus became acutely ill immediately afterward. Over the course of just a few weeks, his health alarmingly declined exponentially. He aged years overnight, had intermittent and unexplained blindness, began urinating blood, lost the use of his back legs, and had grand mal seizures. Cyrus succumbed to what the vet could only conjecture (unconvincingly) after a multitude of expensive and invasive tests was “a bladder type cancer.” Cyrus died on September 3rd, 2013, a little over one

month after vaccination and just two months from his 11th birthday. There is no doubt in my mind that Cyrus died as a direct result of vaccination. My four-year-old Basset Hound, Max, was also vaccinated with the same combination of vaccines on the same day, and less than two years later he was diagnosed with hemangiosarcoma, an aggressive and fast-growing form of cancer. Max died December 29th, 2015. He lived just two years after the vaccinations, and three short months after the cancer diagnosis. My dogs were full of life and enjoyed it to the fullest, and it was their God-given right to die a natural death at a ripe old age, not before their time from the ravages of cancer.

I am ashamed to admit that it took suffering the loss of my precious companions to start connecting the dots about vaccines. It is too late for Cyrus and Max, and I have to live every day knowing that I willingly paid a veterinarian to lethally inject them under the guise of health care. Had I been informed of the dangers, I never would have consented to vaccinate. If I had known that the rabies vaccine alone causes death in older dogs, I never would have agreed to it regardless of the law. I would rather pay a fine and defend my stance before a judge than subject my dogs to such abuse. If only I had known then, what I know now I would have done things drastically different.

Cyrus and Max

Nature is the only way to real health and immunity.

So then if the disease is a result of a disruption inside of the body, how do we maintain the natural balance of our bodies and those of our pets, thus preventing disease? Since the beginning of humanity, naturopathy has given us a drugless lifestyle approach emphasizing whole-health taking into consideration the whole body, not just the symptoms of the disease. Symptoms are merely the bodies attempt to heal and are a roadmap that provides clues to their underlying cause. Naturopaths use a wide variety of healing modalities such as herbs, acupuncture, flower essences, essential oils, bodywork, and homeopathy to name a few. In the late 1700’s, German physician Samuel Hahnemann founded homeopathy on the law of similars also known as “Like Cures Like.” Simply put, he discovered that a remedy which produces symptoms in a healthy body would cure those same symptoms in a sick one (Mikic, p, 27). Hahnemann found that using small doses of a substance, such as an herb, that produces similar symptoms worked by stimulating the body’s immune system. Pharmaceutical drugs follow the law of opposite and only create an imbalance in the body (Bloomer, 2010). They quickly mask and suppress symptoms, and people avoid using nature to heal because it takes so long. We are used to having what we believe is a “quick fix” when in reality the drugs are driving the symptoms, or the expression of disease, deeper into the body. Nature is, in fact, the fastest cure in existence (Lindlahr, 2010). Health is achieved only by following the laws of health in nature every day; species-appropriate nutrition, elimination of toxins, good hygiene, daily exercise, uncontaminated water, sunshine, moderation in all things, fresh air, rest, trust in the divine, and naturally exposing ourselves and our pets to viruses and bacteria.

In the end, it is up to every one of us to stand up for our rights and the rights of the animals who depend on us as their guardians to make the right decisions. Without even realizing it, our society has allowed powerful organizations to slowly erode our God-given rights to choose how we want to take care of ourselves and our animals by convincing us that we aren’t qualified to make such decisions. If today were judgment day, I would be found guilty of my past ignorance that led to the needless deaths of my best friends Cyrus and Max. I am connecting the dots and taking back my authority and responsibility for the health of my animals. Are you willing to do the same?
