I will make this as simple as I can, but it is a big subject. I hope you will follow up with some of the references below for more detailed information.
Just a few facts before we start: Today children get at least 49 mandated vaccines before the age of 6. One in twenty kids today are autistic, 50% of our kids are sick with some kind of chronic disease like asthma, autism, allergies, learning disabilities, or epilepsy etc. Studies show that vaccines are no better than a placebo in clearing infection!
First, the way vaccines work is, they inject you with a dead or live virus, so the body can build up ‘antibodies’. Then, the next time it is exposed to that virus, the antibodies recognize it and pull together to destroy it. Problem is viruses always mutate into slightly different forms. They are very tricky that way.
Here is how the immune system develops naturally.
The baby swallows bacteria as it comes out the vaginal canal which provides the baby’s GI tract with probiotics, (hopefully mom has her own good bacteria). This is really primary to a baby’s health. Cesarean section babies, can always be given good probiotics to supplement what’s missing from a vaginal birth. Now the baby has good bacteria in the gut that will fight bad bacteria, viruses, or invaders taken in through the mouth and lay a foundation for the immune system.
As the baby gets older and goes out into his environment, he puts everything he encounters in his mouth. Why do you think they do that? This is the only way the immune system can develop. Getting samples from the immediate environment is how the body makes natural antibodies to protect the baby as he grows and develops.
Antibacterial soaps and products coming out on the market today, are actually keeping our bodies from sampling the environment and building immunity. We all need a little dirt, worms, mud, whatever so when we grow up, the immune system is exposed and ready. The environment is like a natural vaccine!
The very old and the very young are most prone to disease because they are more vulnerable from an undeveloped immune system, (in the very young), or a poor diet, (in the old) and the body does not have the proper nutrients/immunity to fight disease.
Vaccines may be an artificial immunity but the preservatives in them do more harm than good.
Here are the main toxic preservatives in vaccines today:
1. Aluminum-Hormone disruptor-neurotoxin, food preservative
2. Sodium Deoxycholate-Causes cell death, weakens immunity, increases tumor growth
3. Formaldehyde-Ranked one of hazardous compound by Environmental Defense Fund
4. Thimerosal- organic form of mercury, most dangerous, causes cell death, destroys nerve cells, decreases brain activity, and destroys DNA.
A well nourished body has a good supply of liver enzymes, so it can take care of toxins. That’s why many can get vaccinated without any problems. But with the increase in nutrient deficient junk and fast foods, more and more bodies do not have enough nutrients to make these vital liver enzymes. These are the individuals who get ill, or why children turn autistic when heavy metals go to the brain.
I know couples personally whose perfectly normal children became autistic after vaccination.
Some side effects of vaccinations:
Arthritis, Bleeding, MI, Sepsis, Guillian Bar syndrome (characterized by progressive paralysis), Ear Infections, Fainting, Renal Failure, Seizures, Allergic reactions, Sudden death-Most common diagnosis given for hospital admissions.
To date the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) has awarded more than 1.2 billion in damages!
We are educated to think that we need medications, vaccines, and have to be protected from our very environment. This thinking is somewhat flawed. If the body is properly nourished and has a properly functioning immune system, it can fight disease, especially with a healthy mental/spiritual viewpoint.
If our body was never exposed to germs, we would all have to live in our own little bubbles because our immune system would have never gotten a chance develop and fight for us. Make sense?
