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?
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
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 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 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:
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, I’ll let you know in future articles.
Until later……Share this with others.
