Australia Banning Information about Vacccines – A Witchhunt

The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia and the Australian Medical Association along with health minister, Sussan Ley are threatening nurses and midwives who provide negative information about vaccines. Australian nurses who offer anti-vaccination messages face prosecution. Authorities are urging members of the public to report nurses who provide anti-vaccination information.

 Florida Law would effectively remove religious and medical exemptions for vaccines

A proposed law in Florida (U.S.) SB 64  (filed by Senator Lauren Book) would eliminate the religious exemption to vaccines required for public and private school children. It would also add a new section of law requiring the Board of Medicine and the Board of Osteopathic Medicine to jointly create a medical exemption review panel that shall review all medical exemptions. This is an effort to intimidate doctors from writing medical exemptions for vaccines.

PPI Drugs Have Fatal Side Effects

A study from Washington University School of Medicine found that long-term use of drugs called proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) lead to fatal cases of cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease and upper gastrointestinal cancer. They found that the risks increase with the duration of PPI use, even if used in low doses. More than 15 million Americans have prescriptions for PPIs and many others buy the drug OTC and take it for long periods.

“Given the millions of people who take PPIs regularly, this translates into thousands of excess deaths every year,” said Al-Aly, a nephrologist and clinical epidemiologist.”

Androgen deprivation therapy

A research study looked at over 150,000 men, age 66 or older, who had been diagnosed with prostate cancer. They monitored them for 10 years after diagnosis. Among those that were given the drug treatment, androgen deprivation therapy (ADT), there was a 20-percent increase in the risk of dementia and a 14-percent higher risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

Some Tips from Dr. James Tyler Kent


Baptisia has been a very useful remedy in gangrenous sore mouth and sore throat.  “Cancrum oris.” The ulcers spread rapidly and eat rapidly. They are really phagedenic. Sordes form rapidly on the teeth.

Baryta muriatica

Many cases of aneurysm have been benefited by it. General physical anxiety is a strong feature. Complaints are worse ascending stairs such as dyspnoea, palpitation and weakness. The symptoms are often worse in cold air and from becoming cold. Dread of bathing, like Sulphur.

Cadmium Sulphuricum

It is well known to be classed along with Arsenicum for its anxiety, but unlike Arsenicum, he wants to be perfectly quiet. Part of it is a state of indolence, part of it is an aversion to motion. He is worse from motion. The stomach gives out; there is no digestion, and everything is vomited.


The mind and memory are gone. He closes the eyes, seemingly asleep, and answers no questions. Delirious with the heat, rage and mania, wants to jump out of bed or out of the window. The dark is filled with imaginary specters; he dare not get out of bed in the dark; everything that moves is a specter.


Sudden loss of consciousness with red face. Suddenly goes into stupor. Confusion of mind. Overwhelmed with strange ideas. Frenzy, delirium, with great excitement and rage, paroxysms renewed by dazzling or bright objects, by touching the larynx or by trying to drink water as in rabies.

Cancer Causing Herbicide Found in Children’s Cereal

A recent study by the Environmental Working Group found that Glyphosate, the active ingredient in the Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup, was found in 17 of the 21 oat-based cereal and snack products at levels considered unsafe for children.

Pharma Controls Every Aspect of Medicine

“The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not only in terms of the practice of medicine, but also in terms of teaching and research. The academic institutions of this country are allowing themselves to be the paid agents of the pharmaceutical industry. I think it’s disgraceful.” — Dr. Arnold S. Relman, (1923-2014), former editor-in-chief of The New England Journal of Medicine, who coined the term “medical-industrial complex”.
