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 here, 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?
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 accommodate 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
The drug companies have convinced Congress 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 stupidest, 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 is unvaccinated, 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 different world!
Stop being mesmerized by commercial products! And don’t buy commercial personal 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 do in your body.
Why isn’t your regular oven good enough? It appears that Russia was way ahead of us:
• The prolonged eating of microwaved foods causes cancerous cells to increase in human blood.
• Continual ingestion of microwaved food causes immune system deficiencies through lymph gland and serum alterations.
• Eating microwaved food causes loss of memory, concentration, emotional instability, and a decrease of intelligence.
• Microwaving milk and cereal grains converted some of their amino acids into carcinogens.
• Thawing frozen fruits converted their glucoside and galactoside containing fractions into carcinogenic substances.
• Extremely short exposure of raw, cooked or frozen vegetables converted their plant alkaloids into carcinogens.
• Eating food processed from a microwave oven causes permanent brain damage by “shorting out” electrical impulses in the brain.
• The prolonged eating of microwaved foods causes cancerous cells to increase in human blood.
• Minerals, vitamins, and nutrients of all microwaved food is reduced or altered so that the human body gets little or no benefit.
- Microwaved foods cause stomach and intestinal cancerous growths (tumors). This may explain the rapid increased rate of colon cancer in America.
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 saying, “I knew it! I knew it!” as I was lying in my bed, unable to get up. 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, suppress, derange, distort, disturb and disrupt your immune system! I have seen them literally ruin people’s lives! And speaking of drugs…
7. Giving Your Children Drugs!
None of them has been tested on children. Let me put it this way, it’s unethical to test drugs on children since they can’t give informed consent. There is no such thing as a “safe” drug. They are all liver toxic. They are all symptom-oriented, meaning designed to eliminate symptoms without addressing the cause. They don’t cure anything and often make you sick in other ways. Sometimes they simply do nothing at all. Do you watch the commercials for Rx drugs on TV in the United States? Do you know why they list their dizzying array of side effects? So you can’t sue them! (“We told you it caused cancer, weren’t you listening? Well, it’s not our fault, don’t blame us!”)
Homeopathic remedies are the solution, as they do what drugs claim to do but usually don’t. They are a blessing to parents with sick children and I truly feel sorry for anyone who is solely dependent on pharmaceutical drugs.
Look at antibiotics for example. Did you know that they only work against bacteria? Do you know how rare it is for a child to have a bacterial infection? More often than not, when your child is sick, it’s a virus! Antibiotics have no effect on viruses but that doesn’t stop your doctor from prescribing them! He probably thinks, “The parents expect an antibiotic; besides, there’s nothing else I can do and I don’t want to have to admit it.”
Antibiotics nowadays have horrible side-effects. One of them is ITP. Have you heard of this disease? There are whole internet forums dedicated to parents of kids with ITP. The disease represents a tendency to bleed and bruise without cause. It’s an acronym for Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura. Go to drugs.com and look up the side effects of your antibiotic. Scroll down to “Hematologic”, there it will be–blood disorders of all types! Let’s just for the fun of it look up the side effects of the common antibiotic Amoxicillin:
“Hematologic side effects associated with penicillins have included thrombocytopenia, anemia, leukopenia, thrombocytopenic purpura, agranulocytosis, hemolytic anemia, eosinophilia, and granulocytopenia. These effects are usually reversible and are believed to be due to hypersensitivity reactions.“
Are you anxious to put your child at risk for this disease? Every drug has it! The only accepted treatment is Prednisone and IVIG, which have their own side-effects and issues, and then, after a while, they stop working!
And of course, we know what antibiotics do to the digestive tract–the stomach pains, the diarrhea. We know they cause yeast over-growth and over-growth of bad bacteria in general.
Here’s your way out of this nightmare: feed your kids real food, food you prepare at home from scratch, give them salads, raw fruit and whole grains, steer clear of junk food, and handle acute illnesses with homeopathic remedies, and there will be way fewer health problems and behavior problems in your household! Buy an acute prescribing book like this one available at amazon.com:
and a homeopathic 30C emergency kit like this one, which is just like the one I have, available at www.A2Zhomeopathy.com: (Oops! a2zhomeopathy.com went out of business! Try www.homeopathic.com)
8. Cutting The Cord Too Soon!
Don’t cut the umbilical cord so fast after the baby is born! Wait 3 to five minutes, says an article in JAMA Pediatrics. The extra blood the baby receives makes him less prone to iron deficiency, this based on a Swedish study comparing two groups of children, one where the cord was clamped right away after birth, another clamped after 3-5 minutes; results: the latter group had higher iron stores and, by age 4, better fine motor control and social skills.
“Delaying umbilical cord clamping (CC) by 2 to 3 minutes after delivery allows fetal blood remaining in the placental circulation to be transfused to the newborn.8,9 This transfusion can expand the blood volume by 30% to 40% (25-30 mL/kg).10 After physiologic hemolysis, hemoglobin-bound iron is transferred into iron stores. Consequently, delayed CC is associated with improved iron status…”
Genetically Modified Organisms. This whole topic may seem boring, as I used to think, but, it is no joke! I used to say, “What do I care, I don’t eat this food! I don’t shop in those places! It has nothing to do with me!” Over time though, I started to realize there’s no avoiding this stuff! Do you know what it is? Scientists have learned how to splice two unrelated items together to create something that doesn’t exist in nature! Their biggest “creation” right now is GM corn–which is everywhere, because high fructose corn syrup is in every processed food! Do you know what the bio-tech companies, like Monsanto, have done to corn? They spliced it together with insecticide! Oh geez, what a great idea! Why didn’t I think of that? The corn makes its own insecticide! (You know what? I don’t want to eat anything that makes its own insecticide!) When the bugs eat the corn, they die! Brilliant! (Not!)
This corn gets fed to cattle and chickens in factory farms, then they’re slaughtered, and you eat them, so you’re getting GM corn indirectly! If your child goes to school and the school uses a food service, your child is getting factory farm meat that’s been fed GM corn! If you work in a place that has a cafeteria, and the cafeteria uses a food service, now you’re eating GM corn! If you eat in any restaurant, especially any chain restaurant, or fast food place, you’re getting GM corn!
It would be nice to be able to avoid this stuff; but, the bio-tech companies have lobbied congress for protection from having to put “Contains GMO’s” on food labels! There is only one way to protect yourself: Buy organic! That’s it! But, no restaurant is going to sell organic food, it’s too expensive and they’re in business to make money, not to improve your health! Other countries require labeling, and good for them, but that doesn’t totally solve the problem.
In the mid-90’s, England ordered a government study on the safety of GMO’s. A renowned scientist was put in charge. He had 3 groups of rats, one ate GM potatoes, the second group ate the potatoes with just insecticide sprayed on them and the third group ate organic potatoes. After 10 days the rats were euthanized and examined. The organic rats were healthy–surprise, surprise. The rats that ate the potatoes sprayed with insecticide were also healthy! (How do you like that?) But the rats who ate the GM potatoes had pre-cancerous cell growth and smaller brains, livers and testicles; there was partial atrophy of the liver and immune system damage. The renowned scientist was fired.
No human trials have ever been done!
All I used to have to warn people about was sugar and white flour! Those were the good ol’ days!
This is really pretty horrifying stuff, isn’t it? And it’s going to get worse! It pretty much means you can’t eat out, you definitely can’t eat at places like McDonald’s or Burger King, and you basically have to cook every meal from scratch! Well, this is what I do anyway but it’s become even more urgent now!
With time running out, I am just going to briefly tell you to: not drink “diet” soda or eat “diet” anything, as the artificial sweetener (aspartame, also known as aspartic acid) is a neurotoxin! Plus, sucralose, another artificial sweetener, destroys the friendly bacteria that populate your colon!
Also, don’t put your cell phone to your ear, use the speaker phone. An inexplicable number of people have brain tumors nowadays!
Stay away from white sugar and white flour products, they’re causing diabetes, they’re addicting, they make children hyper-active and badly behaved, they’re acidic which raises uric acid levels, which causes the blood pressure to go up, which causes kidney damage–you’ll wind up as a diabetic and ultimately on dialysis!
What can you eat that’s safe? I’ve written many articles on food and diet and they’re all together in one place on my website, just go to elaineLewis.hpathy.com and click on “food fight!” https://elainelewis.hpathy.com/food-fight/
Don’t sleep under electric blankets as doing so is linked to leukemia and cancer in general.
You can warm up the bed with it if you want to, but then turn it off and pile on the goose down comforters! And don’t put your laptop on your lap! Electricity, electro-magnetic fields, and radiation should not be so close to your body!
If I’ve forgotten anything, and I’m sure I have, you will most likely find it in Part-II, click below:
Until later……Share this with others.

Elaine, this is an awesome article. It’s everything you need to know all in one place. I’m keeping it for posterity and to give to all my moms. Thanks for the great work!
Wow! Thanks Shirley! 🙂
Thanks to polio vaccination, India achieved the landmark of being polio free for 3 years a few days back. Before you say that its because of improved hygeine, the neighbouring countries are still grappling with the issue of polio. How do you explain that? And I certainly do not believe that hygeine has improved in slums in India where polio thrives.
Samartan, vaccinations are inartfully done homeopathy! You give a small dose of a disease to prevent the disease. That’s what WE do! Why would you take your child to someone who doesn’t know how to treat by means of the law of similars? Do we give poisons to our patients? What is the safe level of mercury for the human body, do you know? Answer: There is no safe level! Why would you put it in your child’s blood stream to prevent polio? Are you not aware that we have polio remedies and that we have treated polio epidemics? Lathyrus sativa and Gelsemium are great remedies for polio! Do you know that homeopathy and Hahnemann got famous for successfully treating epidemic disease? This is our strong suit! I am shocked that homeopaths don’t seem to be aware of their own history.
Vaccination has its origins in ancient India. Its discovery has been wrongly credited to western “doctors”. Vacca in sanskrit means cow. The ancients discovered that antibodies developed in cows which get infected with smallpox can be used as inoculation, and had been widely used in ayurveda.
Hi Kumar, almost every ancient culture knew about the law of similars; but, they didn’t go into the blood stream and they didn’t inject an array of poisons. Even Jenner only used cow pox pus to protect against the more dangerous small pox. Quite different to what we have going now. And mixing vaccines? And giving many all at once? There is no study, no trial that says this is perfectly fine! So the whole thing is unscientific by their own standards!
Vaccines try to stimulate an immune response. Homeopathy doesn’t even try to do such a thing.
@Samartan, hmm, unfortunately you don’t seem to be aware of what’s really happening on the polio front in our country.
Yes, they CLAIM that India is polio-free. The truth is, it’s not. They’re now calling polio paralysis by another name and hence we’re technically polio-free. Do you know that in 2011, there were over 47,000 cases of polio-like paralysis that happened in a large number of children who received the polio vaccine? This has been termed Non Polio Acute Flaccid Paralysis (NPAFP). Similarly, cases of VAPP (Vaccine Associated Polio Paralysis) are on the rise, again, in kids who’ve received the polio vaccine. This was published in some newspapers like the Deccan Chronicle, but of course, it was probably hushed up by the mainstream media.
Here are some links:
In such issues, where the safety of your children is at stake, it is best to do your own research and not depend on anyone, including your doctors, to make that decision for you. Whatever decision you take, take INFORMED decisions.
Thanks for taking the time to explain this, Firuzi. It reminds me that back in the ’50’s they were calling polio cases “meningitis” to make the vaccine look like it was working! Same old story!
Myself, my family, My children are all vaccinated as well as my relatives children. They are perfectly fine, thanks. No autism and no learning disabilities, they are doing fine in school. I will stick to prevention that let polio attack my child and then try homeopathy and you blame something else if homeopathy doesnt work. Remeber Gloria Fernandes?. Sorry, but my experience is my teacher…
So because YOUR kids are fine, and your friends’ kids are fine, no worries for the rest of us, then! Tell me something. What is responsible for the ridiculously high rates of autism? Before the 1940’s, this disease didn’t even exist, it starts, interestingly, after the introduction of vaccinations; and because you’re willing to play Russian Roulette with your children, the rest of us should be equally as willing, despite the fact that most of these diseases, like measles, mumps and chicken pox, aren’t even that serious, which I can personally attest to, and according to the CDC and even Dr. Salk, the only way you can get polio nowadays is from the oral polio vaccine! Here’s a question for you, if the polio vaccine got rid of polio, then why hasn’t the MMR gotten rid of measles? Why hasn’t the DPT gotten rid of whooping cough? And how did the Plague ever go away without a vaccine?
Elaine, I know how aggravating it is to explain things to people, in the interest of the world’s health, but they don’t want to listen. Well, time will give out the truth eventually. Till then, God alone knows how many lives will be affected by adverse effects. Samartan does not WANT TO KNOW. This is typical behaviour, hiding one’s head to avoid facing the truth. Luckily for him, his family is fine. Yes, immediate adverse effects don’t affect a majority – that’s how he’s been lucky – he’s ready to take that chance, so be it. A majority of people are ready to take that chance. And Oh, chronic health issues that happen in the long run due to vaccines, they won’t ever attribute to the vaccines. That’s how the evil powers-that-be get away with it for a LONG LONG time. Well, I’m not ready to take that chance for my kids. Hence they’re happy, healthy and unvaccinated. Every one has to make their own decisions. At least you did your bit by trying to make people aware.
Ok, I agree with your arguments. Now please tell hpathy readers how many polio and small pox cases have you handled and cured successfully PERSONALLY before I entrust the future of my children into the hands of homeopathy. I do not want to hear some success stories of others as it may or may not be true, and they did not write this article anyway.
Samartan – you are constantly thinking “What if my kids were to get polio or whatever”; that’s your reason for vaccinating. You’re failing to see that in India, today, most of the cases of polio-like paralysis coming up are BECAUSE of the vaccine itself.
I appreciate your concerns and in no way am I belittling them. I had the same concerns after my first child was born and that’s what got me started on the road to vaccine safety research…. reading LOADS of articles, cases, articles not just by ‘alternative-stream’ practitioners, but articles by actual scientists involved in research, articles published in mainstream medical journals.
I have not treated a single case of polio, but I have treated a 2 year old child who stopped walking (he could not walk anymore) after the pulse polio doses. Small pox, no, not treated. The authorities claim small pox is eradicated. That’s the reason given when they stopped the small pox vaccination in India from 1975. BUT, I even now, see beggars in trains, with typical small pox scarring on their bodies. This means small pox is not eradicated. The truth is that the small pox vaccine was stopped because of the tremendously dangerous side effects it had.
Here is a blogpost with 87 published works which you can go through. All in authentic scientific journals, not in ‘alternative’ journals. All with full references.
87 published works on vaccines and adverse health concerns –
I have no wish to continue this conversation further. Enough has been posted for you to make your own informed decisions. After all, you are the one who will have to live with those decisions.
Wonderful article, as usual, Elaine!
Here’s another link – read it in detail if you want to truly know the truth.
Thanks for the link, Firuzi, I read it, and I was glad to see that it contained the following, as I often state in my articles that both the CDC and even Dr. Salk have said that the oral polio vaccine is the sole cause of polio now in the United States:
“The Oral Polio Vaccines were given to Indian children. The CDC dropped the OPV from its vaccine schedule in the US because it was causing polio.
“In 1976, Dr. Jonas Salk, creator of the killed-virus vaccine used in the 1950s, testified that the live-virus vaccine (used almost exclusively in the U.S. from the early 1960s to 2000) was the ‘principal if not sole cause’ of all reported polio cases in the U.S. since 1961 .”
Very informative and explained elaborately in very simple words…
I have no words for it.
Just dedicating it to you:
Old Elaine would have a farm eieio,
And on that farm she would have a cow (for healthy milk) eieio,
Some veggies free from GMO’s…
Some chickens which would lay organic eggs…
And a pond of some healthy fish!
With a peace peace here and a peace peace there
Here a peace there a peace everywhere a peace peace.
How’s that?;) I wish I could have.
Maryam! I had no idea you were a song writer! (somehow, though, it reminds me of something I’ve heard before…what could it be….what could it be….?)
Rukhsar’s parents are glad of the attention their daughter brings, but they have mixed feelings. They are racked with guilt; she was ill when she was due to have the vaccination and missed it. A year later she become violently ill, vomiting and suffering from diarrhoea. “She still has pain in her leg, every day when she plays with other children, she has pain. It’s every day but it has improved,” her mother, Sabojann Begam Shah, 29, said, crouched on the mud floor over a cooking pot.
“All of our other children were given polio drops. But Rukhsar did not have them. She was ill with diarrhoea and vomiting so she didn’t have the drops.” Rukhsar’s father, Abdul Shah, 33, who earns 4,500 rupees (Â£45) a month embroidering sequins on sari fabrics, added: “I feel bad.”
The article, originating from the London Daily Telegraph, reads like a propaganda piece. Appealing to the emotions, there is absolutely no proof that if Rukshar had been vaccinated, she wouldn’t have gotten polio. In fact, there is every reason to believe that, if what Dr. Salk claims is true, getting the oral polio vaccine is one sure-fire way to contract polio.
“Rukhsar, the focus of our search, was just 18 months old when she was paralyzed by polio in January 2011. Although her two siblings received polio vaccinations, Rukhsar was often sick with diarrhea and despite encouragement from local health workers her parents had thought it was safer for her to avoid the vaccine”
Samartan, we know nothing about Rushkar’s case. We only know that she often came down with diarrhea, why? What was the cause of that? What drugs were given for that? There is so much left out of this case…did she in fact have polio or a nerve disease caused by inappropriate prescribing for this strange diarrhea condition she had; and indeed, vaccines ARE contra-indicated when a child is sick.
Blessings dear Elaine for a thorough article on all the things people have been doing wrong today. The populations have been indoctrinated into “modern” society, not trusting their inherited innate sensibilities and wisdom from ancestors on how to live in harmony with nature. I do believe we are reaching a tipping point where enough people hear your words from numerous sources. People have decided to research on the internet websites off the mainstream dogma and into the rivulets and streams of explorers who experiment with “organic,” “handcrafted,” “energy medicines,” “dance, song, movement, art therapy and healing touch.” We have so much at our disposal to help heal the body. We also have much to be cautious and informed about regarding pollutants in the environment, phytoestrogens (plastics), tainted farmed fish, grains, etc., concern for purity of our drinking water, and sterility of our soils. I want to thank you once again for such a complete expose. And, I thoroughly enjoyed the comments on the vaccine issue. Blessings, Debby
Elaine, this is one fantastic article. Just posted the link on my fb page. You lay out clearly that when it comes to raising kids and and living our lives, we should use common sense and make smart choices that would promote a lifestyle closer to nature.
Thank you Vatsala and Debby! I really mean it when I say that I despair upon hearing that anyone is pregnant. I recently met a woman with three children, all of whom were on the autistic spectrum! I’m sure expectant parents have dreams of what it’s going to be like to be a parent but none of them include children who are violent, can’t be corrected, break things, can’t be taken out in company, to restaurants, etc., and the toll this takes on the relationship; even just having to deal with a child who is allergic, has eczema, is constantly in the ER for asthma attacks, no family can survive this kind of unending stress, the point being that we’re doing this to ourselves! Hopefully the message gets out.
Thank you for exposing the evils of processed food, of vaccination, of potent drugs, of antibiotics,of genetic manipulation of food plants and animals, on the health of innocent people, whether educated or not, rich or poor. This is done by some selfish Corporates, big Business Houses, and Drug Industries, who do not bother about human welfare but their own income. The modern Drug Industry doesn’t want a low-cost Homeopathy in the service of mankind. It tries to influence and control the Medical profession, and Political decision making Apparatus. Though it is doubtlessly shown that Tobacco is harmful to man, no Government in the world is able to stop its use to Smoke, or to Chew. The money power in the hands of such people uses the powerful Media like News paper, and T.V, for deceiving the Common Man. It is a vicious cycle. ” Fear of God is the beginning
of Wisdom”. Let us, who know the truth Proclaim it loudly, where ever possible, and when ever possible, so that the Mankind is benefited.
