Critical analysis of reference studies on the toxicokinetics of aluminum-based adjuvants
ROCKVILLE, Maryland — While you were (hopefully) enjoying the winter holidays, a study was published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry (it went online on December 27th) that could change the autism debate permanently.
In fact, this new study placed the burden of proof for the safety of aluminum adjuvants used in vaccines so squarely on the shoulders of a lone FDA scientist — Dr. Robert J. Mitkus — that he alone could permanently change the outcome of the autism debate. Forever.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: December 20, 2017
Los Angeles, Calif. — The California-based nonprofit organization, Physicians for Informed Consent (PIC), recently reported in The BMJ that every year about 5,700 U.S. children suffer seizures from the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine.
This finding is derived from results of the most statistically powered safety study ever to measure the association between MMR vaccination and febrile seizures. More than half a million children were evaluated, both vaccinated and unvaccinated, from a Danish population that is relied upon globally to examine vaccine safety.

Vaccines can and do cause injuries, including autism
We’re living in an age where parents increasingly report that their typically developing children declined cognitively and physically after receiving vaccines. Despite the sound science supporting these parent claims, government agencies and mainstream media continue issuing the now shopworn mantra that vaccines are “safe and effective” ignoring published research and even common sense that indicate otherwise.
World Mercury Project has put together a list of the most common misrepresentations in the vaccine safety debate and provided the facts and references that support the reality that vaccines can and do cause injuries including autism and many other adverse health outcomes.

Crunching the Vaccine Numbers
World Mercury Project gets questions about the number of vaccines given to young children in America today. Different articles cite different numbers and the totals can be confusing. This article and chart are designed to clarify the vaccine schedule and explain why the numbers may not always “add up.” To be accurate, wording about total numbers of vaccines should include phrases like, “may receive up to” or “typically” or “between X and Y” number of vaccines. The individual numbers for any given child will vary depending on the specific vaccines used in his pediatrician’s practice or clinic.

Fevers in Children
I get questions about fever in children several times a week. With flu season in high gear many children are sick. Unfortunately, parents are taught to fear fever as if it were a disease in and of itself and told to make it go away as soon as possible.
But suppressing a fever, either by using drugs or by chilling is a potentially dangerous practice. Fever is the the body's coping mechanism for dealing with infections and toxins and if a fever is suppressed during an infection the patient can actually become more vulnerable to the germ that is causing the illness.

Nearly 200 years ago, the founder of Homeopathy, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, observed that infectious diseases could leave residual symptoms which sometimes were also passed onto future generations without the offspring having contracted the infection. He observed this to be true conditions such as scabies, gonorrhea, tuberculosis and syphilis.
He felt that this trans-generational effect manifested in the form of ‘disease predispositions’ which he called ‘miasms’. The effect in the same generation was called an ‘acquired miasm’ in subsequent generations it was referred to as an ‘inherited miasm’.
Such miasms could be treated with relevant homeopathic remedies, thereby freeing the affected individual from the predisposition to various chronic diseases.

Genes and Destiny?
Until recently, it was believed that our genes dictate our destiny. That we are slated for the diseases that will ultimately beset us based upon the pre-wired indecipherable code written in stone in our genetic material. The burgeoning field of epigenetics, however, is overturning these tenets, and ushering in a school of thought where nurture, not nature, is seen to be the predominant influence when it comes to genetic expression and our freedom from or affliction by chronic disease.
In cases with trans-generational trauma, the original, unresolved trauma is carried over from previous generations to the current one. For those coping with this type of trauma it can be confusing to address and understand since the symptoms they are experiencing are not based in their own life history or experiences.
I would like to present some of the reasons homeopathy can be a helpful tool for this kind of trauma and to explore one homeopathic remedy with symptoms that link to trans-generational trauma in a very fascinating and beautiful way.

Nux vomica 30CH - as the name implies this can be good for vomiting, as well as just generally feeling sick from overindulgence. Think hangover. Child may feel grumpy and irritable. Too many sweets, snacks, alcohol, overeating, Nux vomica can come to the rescue.

The Kitchen Pantry Will Never Fail Us
In a world mesmerized by the false promises of pharmaceutical industry marketing copy, as well as inundated with aggressively marketed dietary supplements, many of which are manufactured by the same companies making a killing off patented chemicals (Bayer owns One A Day, Pfizer owns Centrum), it is reassuring to know that the kitchen pantry will never fail us...
Inexpensive, time-tested, safe and delicious, many spices are attaining recognition for being, quite literally, 'life saving,' which is likely one reason why, in ancient times, many were worth their weight in gold.

The Merck-manufactured drug was developed to prevent infections caused by HPV, which is a group of 150 related viruses -- 15 of which are linked to cervical cancer.
At the heart of the controversies are questions around the need for the vaccine, the efficacy of the vaccine and the fast-growing number of reports of severe reactions to the vaccine.
The latter question has moved to the forefront of the debate as safety testing concerns have been raised and the number of vaccine-injured children has grown.

1) Keep your sense of humour
Surprise them with a witty argument. For example, when being accused as an anti-vaxxer calmly ask if your opponent has heard about mercury in fish being harmful. Ask if they know that pregnant women are advised to limit their intake of tuna fish during pregnancy. If opponent agrees ask if they are in favour of getting the mercury out of the oceans and out of the fish. If they answer affirmative tell them they are anti-fish! (Thank you RFK) Or ask them if they ever dissected frogs in school, you know the ones that are pickled in formaldehyde. Ask if they would give the frog-juice to their child? If they say no, call them anti-frog! You get the idea.
Pro-vaxxers very much dislike the fact that in the US an increasing number of parents are thinking for themselves, doing their own research, and making the decision not to comply with the CDC’s recommended vaccine schedule. Well, one professor of pediatrics has a proposed solution to this perceived “problem”: eliminating the white population in the United States.
The New York Times reports on a new study finding that the greatest risk to infants of being infected with the bacteria that causes whooping cough, or pertussis, now comes from their older siblings. The Times explains that this is “probably a result of waning immunity among children and adolescents who had received the DTaP vaccine.”

It is a commonly held misconception that the brain is beyond repair. Even the medical establishment has asserted that once we kill brain cells, they are gone forever. The fact is, the brain can repair itself, and as science is now proving, there is real benefit to simple practices that can help keep our brains sharp and elastic throughout our lifetime.
for action to prevent naturopathic doctors from educating their patients about vaccine concerns, including removing their ability to self-regulate.

This article was based on a study titled "Injecting Doubt: Responding to the Naturopathic Anti-Vaccination Rhetoric", written by Caulfield and two co-authors and published in the Journal of Law and the Biosciences.
The team examined the websites of 300 naturopathic clinics in BC and Alberta and found that 53 of them expressed 'anti-vaccination' content, "in other words, a significant number of naturopaths – that is, members of a provincially regulated health profession – are explicitly and publicly spreading nonsense about vaccination" and that this 'must stop', and are calling for deregulation of naturopathic medicine or at least third-party (read: Big Pharma) oversight.

A peer-reviewed study recently published in the Review of Industrial Organization examines whether removing the right to sue (“delitigation”) affects product safety. The findings highlight the importance of litigation in maintaining vaccine safety.
Where are the Studies of Vaccinated vs Unvaccinated Children?
For many years, parents and professionals have been questioning whether or not any studies have been conducted comparing vaccinated children to unvaccinated children.
In fact, Congressman Posey put this very question to Ms. Coleen Doyle from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2012. As expected, Ms. Doyle made several attempts to avoid Mr. Posey’s question before finally being forced to admit that the CDC had not carried out such a study.
One week ago my 19-year-old daughter Ariana had three wisdom teeth removed, one of them impacted. Wisdom tooth removal is something of a rite of passage for teens these days, especially if they've had braces and don't want their teeth to shift.
I had my own wisdom teeth removed when I was still in naturopathic college, about 27 years ago. At the time we had just learned about Arnica and other homeopathic remedies for the use in surgery. I used Arnica 200CH and 1M with great success at the time, suffering very little swelling or discomfort, much to the surprise of a classmate who described quite an ordeal of swelling and pain after her extractions.

I’ve been studying vaccines for a few years now. During that time several pro-vaxxers have done their best to convince me of the error of my ways. Many grow frustrated with me and inform me that I’m simple minded and stupid. It’s true that I wasn’t the quickest kid in the class. It’s taken me a long time to grasp what they’re saying, but I think I’ve finally got it. If you’re a pro-vaxxer, please let me know if I accurately represented your position. Thanks for your patience!
Homeoprophylaxis, also known as HP, is a safe and effective form of immune education to protect from infectious disease. In countries such as India, where HP is sanctioned by the government, doctors are able to administer HP openly and achieve outstanding results. Homeoprophylaxis costs less than pennies per person due to the fact that very little source material can produce enough HP for thousands, if not millions, of people.
On January 10, 2017, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) issued a press release to express its opposition to a federal commission that has been proposed by the Trump administration to examine vaccine safety and efficacy. The AAP argues that since we already know that vaccines are safe and effective, therefore there is no need for further examination into their safety and efficacy.
This argument, however, begs the question — it presumes in the premise the proposition to be proven (the petitio principii fallacy). And the press release itself illustrates why, apart from the question of whether there should be a federal commission, critical examination of public vaccine policy is very much warranted.
It’s never been done before. The first of it's kind study of vaccinated vs. unvaccinated American homeschooled children shows who is really ailing… and parents should be worried
