It may sound like exaggeration; but, look at the facts (available from www.CDC.gov unless otherwise noted):
1 in 68 children has been identified with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
1 in 9 seniors over 65 has Alzheimer’s Disease.
1 in 6 children has a developmental disability.
11% of all school age children have been diagnosed with ADHD.
1 in 9 children has asthma.
10 – 20% of infants have eczema.
17% of children and adolescents are obese.
Roughly 3,700 Americans under the age of 20 are diagnosed with type-2 diabetes each year. (This used to be called “Adult-Onset Diabetes”–now showing up in children and teenagers.)
1 in every 13 children has food allergies. In fact, every 3 minutes, food allergies send someone to the hospital.
1 out of 4 Americans has a diagnosable mental disorder, according to Dr. David Perlmutter, author of Grain Brain.
1 in 20 children under 5 has epilepsy! (http://www.examiner.com/article/parents-question-vaccines-as-epilepsy-rates-rise-to-1-20-children-under-five)
54% of children have at least one chronic illness.
Roughly half of all adults living in the United States have at least one chronic health issue.
It has gotten to the point where if I hear a couple is going to have a baby, I shudder to think what they might be in for!
Clearly we are doing something wrong, but, what?
1. Not breast-feeding our babies!
Why are people bottle-feeding instead of breast-feeding? Breast milk is what nature intended, you pass your immunity on to your child when you breast feed! This protects your child from disease, so, why would you not do it? It would seem more or less mandatory. The immunoglobulins that get passed on stay with the baby for the rest of its life! When you breast feed, the gut gets colonized with friendly bacteria, the baby is less likely to get diarrheal infections, ear infections, asthma, etc.
What about formula? What’s wrong with formula?
Here are the ingredients in Enfamil, a popular brand of formula: 45% of Enfamil consists of corn syrup solids. What the heck is that? It sounds disgusting. Frankly, it sounds like another way of saying sugar. By the way, most of the corn in this country now is Genetically Modified! What does that mean? The corn makes its own insecticide! No, I’m not kidding. So if you see corn syrup on a label, you have to assume it’s made from GM corn. More on GMO’s later. The next ingredient–26% vegetable oils, and thirdly, 17% caseins (a cause of mucus formation, allergies and diabetes, among other things), plus a bunch of synthetic vitamins that can’t be absorbed. Does this sound nutritious to you?
Do you realize what a pain in the neck preparing formula is? Sterilizing bottles, measuring properly, washing and heating the bottles…. Breast milk is right there, no washing, no measuring, no cost, no expense, your sleep isn’t interrupted if the baby is next to you–and why shouldn’t she be? Sleep with your baby and you won’t have to get up in the middle of the night! Why are people making life so difficult for themselves? Do you know that humans are the only mammals that don’t let their babies sleep with them? It’s insane!
If you breast feed, you reduce your risk of breast cancer and ovarian cancer.
I had a client once who came to me because his baby had eczema. The baby was on formula. I said, “Stop the formula and buy raw goat’s milk.” Hey, it’s breast milk from a fellow-mammal whose milk is very similar to ours!
The baby loved the raw goat’s milk and the eczema went away. (Of course, you do have to heat it, but don’t boil it!)
2. Starting Solids Too Soon
Breast milk is a complete meal. Did you know that your breast milk actually changes to accomodate your baby’s needs? Baby is ready to eat solids when:
he stops drooling which means he can swallow,
he can sit up by himself unsupported,
can hold himself steady
and shows an unambiguous interest in food.
This would have to be after 6 months of age at least. If you start solids before your baby is ready, you’re just asking for trouble–obesity, eczema, respiratory problems like asthma, diabetes and food allergies. And needless to say, give him real food, not processed food! Give him a banana, a slice of watermelon or pear, mash up a yam, etc.
According to pediatrician and author Robert S. Mendelsohn, MD:
“There is no convincing scientific evidence that mass inoculations can be credited with eliminating any childhood disease. … If immunizations were responsible for the disappearance of [polio] in the United States, one must ask why [it] disappeared simultaneously in Europe which did not have a mass vaccination program.”
The whole chapter from his book pictured above can be read here: http://www.whale.to/vaccines/mendelsohn.html
Please watch the informative and amusing video below narrated by SNL alum and comedian Rob Schneider which attempts to explain that the drug companies have convinced the Congress of the United States to shield them from lawsuits for vaccine damage! Consequently, if anyone is damaged by vaccines, your tax dollars are paying for it! There is something called the “vaccine court” and it has paid out roughly 3 billion dollars in damages to date. Despite this fact, medical consensus remains that vaccinations are “completely safe”!
Now, I will add my two cents. Injecting poisons into your infant’s blood stream could possibly be the riskiest, the most inexplicable thing you could ever do for your baby’s health! Vaccines contain neurotoxins–Mercury, MSG and Aluminum–carcinogens like formaldehyde; animal cells, antibiotics, animal viruses, human fetal tissue among other unlikely things. There has never been a double-blind study in which one group is vaccinated, the other group isn’t, and a virus is introduced to see if the vaccinated group is protected; meaning, vaccination is unscientific and unproven by their own standards.
INGREDIENTS IN VACCINES ACCORDING TO THE CDC’S WEBSITE
Do you want to protect your baby from disease? Breast feed him and steer clear of processed and junk food! Once you allow them to start eating “fun food”, they won’t be able to stop because it’s addicting, and they’ll have no taste for the foods that actually keep them healthy.
4. Relying on Processed Food
Processed food (also known as junk food) is not real food. The picture below is not a picture of processed food! Processed food lacks the nutrition and fiber you need to stay healthy and calm. Real food is found in the produce section of your supermarket and looks like this:
This is what you should be eating. Cook from scratch with whole foods. Make sure you’re getting fruits and vegetables every day. Real food does not look like this picture below:
This food is made in a factory. This is “corporate” food. Do you want corporations cooking for you? Believe me, they don’t care about you! They have only one interest–producing a product the cheapest way possible to maximize profits, which means using the cheapest ingredients available, enhancing the taste with added sugar and salt, and lengthening the shelf-life by adding chemicals! All this adds up to non-nutritious and unhealthy meals for your kids, leading to poor performance in school, poor health and behavior problems; plus this food is addicting and will spoil your children’s taste for real food.
I don’t even shop in these places! I was forced to go there yesterday to buy a spice I was out of. Yes, I stood in line at the supermarket for one item, surrounded by long lines of people with carts filled to the brim with huge soda bottles, cereal boxes, bags of chips, candy and cake…. When I go to Whole Foods (a giant health food market), people’s carts are filled with greens, apples, pineapples, bananas, cucumbers, lettuce, kale… it’s a whole other world!
Stop being mesmerized by commercial products! And don’t buy commercial personal hygeine products either! All those synthetic ingredients go through your pores and get right into your blood stream just as if you had eaten them! Buy your soaps, shampoos, deodorant, make-up, laundry soap, furniture and glass cleaner, etc. at the health food store.
5. Cooking with Microwaves
1. Microwave ovens change the chemical structure of your food! Microwaving distorts and deforms the food molecules.
2. Carcinogenic toxins can leach out of the plastic containers and packaging into your food.
3. “Hot spots” in microwaved foods can cause burns.
4. Microwaving destroys the nutrients in your food.
5. Microwaving creates new compounds called radiolytic compounds that are not found in nature and no one knows what they’re doing to your body.
Seriously, why isn’t your regular oven good enough?
6. Stopping Fevers with Aspirin, Tylenol, Motrin, etc.
I know this sounds strange to a lot of people! Why can’t we take “something” when we get a fever? A fever is a sign that you’re sick, and no one wants to be sick, right? So, “taking something” is the obvious solution!
I don’t think anything is more ingrained into the modern psyche than the belief that fevers are bad. What if I were to tell you that fever is actually your friend? Do you notice how children can put out a really high fever? That’s because they’re young and healthy! A really high fever is going to resolve fast! What a fever does is burn up the pathogens that have invaded your body! It’s your immune system at work, creating a fever to protect you! When you stop it with aspirin or whatever, your body freaks out! It says, “No, no, the germs are still here, they’re not dead yet!!!!” You can’t interfere with the immune system without paying a price!
I met a waitress about 6 months ago, she told me her son had this “rare disease”, something about chronic exhaustion, muscle aches, headaches, dizziness, it was so bad, he couldn’t go to school…. I said, when did this start? Of course, I already knew but I waited for her to say it. What I already knew was that this kid had a virus and the fever was brought down with drugs! I didn’t know which drugs, but it didn’t matter, that’s what happened.
The same thing happened to me. The first flu I ever had. I had a fever of 102. I was miserable for days. Finally, my boyfriend dropped by, saw the kleenexes in piles all over the house, and I could hear him crying out, “I knew it! I knew it! Just you wait here, I know what to do!” He went out and came back with Excedrin. It worked great! It was a miracle! The fever went away and I rejoiced! I was fine! I thought I was, anyway. For months afterwards, I had random attacks of diarrhea and stabbing pains in my chest like arrows! The chest pains scared me. One day I was in a health food store. I saw a homeopathic remedy there simply labeled, “Chest”. “Close enough,” I thought. Well, praise the lord, that was the end of my post-viral Excedrin Horror Show!
Can you trace your problem back to when you brought a fever down with drugs? Think about it. This could be what’s wrong with you!
There’s nothing wrong with wanting to help yourself get better from a fever, but be safe and take a homeopathic remedy instead. This is what homeopathy is for! Here is what I really needed for that flu:
Why not drugs? They interfere with, derange, distort, disturb and disrupt your immune system! I have seen them literally ruin people’s lives!
