exposed to an infectious disease, the body produces antibodies and other
activated white blood cells to fight the infection. After recovery, an
immunological memory has been developed that will provide resistance to this
disease in the future.
essence, this is the process vaccination imitates. People are exposed to small
doses of infectious agents (attenuated or dead infectious organisms,
micro-organism toxins or components).
According to current medical lore, vaccination is mostly harmless, the few who become living vegetables as a result being considered an acceptable risk. It is believed that vaccination eliminates illness, and will stave off any future deadly epidemics. The search for a vaccine that will eradicate all human disease has become a highly-funded holy grail. Vaccination has become an indisputable sacred cow, ever larger vaccine coctails being injected into ever younger infants.
examining the historical statistical basis for vaccination, one quickly sees
many discrepancies. Curiously enough, when vaccines were introduced most of the
dreaded diseases (whooping cough, measles, polio, tetanus, and diphtheria), were
already well on their way out, probably owing to improved conditions of hygiene
and nutrition. Vaccination was subsequently given the credit.
should be noted that the sacred stamp of approval of double-blind testing seems
conspicuously absent when it comes to vaccines. It should also be noted that the
French who fought side by side with their allies in the Gulf War have not been
afflicted with the dreaded Gulf War Syndrome. They were not given any vaccine
coctail containing all of Iraq's chemical and biological arsenal, as were
British and American soldiers prior to being sent to Kuwait.
people are becoming concerned about the possible long-term effects of
vaccinations, especially as regards their children. Do they really need
vaccination for childhood illnesses such as measles, mumps and rubella? Will
this open the door to even more ominous afflictions?
In the past we saw acute illnesses from which children recovered fairly rapidly, seldom leaving any lasting damage. Today we see few childhood illnesses, but an alarming increase of children who have middle ear infection with subsequent risk of reduced hearing and impeded language skill development; we see peevish, restless sleepers with chronic runny noses; we see many allergies: eczema, hay fever, asthma, chronic bronchitis and pneumonia. And, worse, we see a great increase in the number of children who are hyperactive, have behavioural disorders and mental disturbances. Causes may vary, but some believe there is a direct connection.
Is it possible that we are eliminating acute illnesses, but thereby paying the price of an increased incidence of chronic illness, together with a lowered level of general health being passed on to succeeding generations ?
facts about the contents of vaccines might be in order. They are grown on
substrates, most of which derive from animal tissue such as rabbit brain, dog or
monkey kidney, chicken or duck egg, cells from aborted foetuses, calf serum, and
pig or horse blood. Such tissues contain proteins that may cause allergic
reactions when injected directly into the blood. Animal genetic material may
thus be introduced via living vaccine viruses and implanted into the human
viruses and bacteria also contain genetic information (RNA, DNA) that may be
spread and taken in by the cells of an organism. Such viruses may remain dormant
in cells for many years before becoming activated, then causing autoimmune
illnesses such as allergies, rheumatism and sclerosis.
contain additives including formaldehyde (a known allergen and carcinogen),
mercury, aluminium phosphate, acetone and glycerine. These are present in minute
quantities, of course, but are quite poisonous and, after all, directly
introduced into tissue.
homeopaths consider routine vaccination harmful. Many do not offer preventive
homeopathic treatment as an alternative, believing it better to treat only when
an illness appears. Others will prescribe preventive homeopathic remedies,
especially in epidemics and for travellers who venture into areas with a high
risk of disease. In Australia a ten-year homeopathic immunization program was
recently carried out in which 500 families participated. The results reported
its more than 200 year history, homeopathy has proven highly effective in
epidemics, both as regards cure and prevention, with well-documented success
rates in, among others, scarlet fever, polio, cholera and influenza epidemics,
and can offer a viable alternative to vaccination.
It would be wise to become informed on this issue. Much literature already exists, a bibliography of which may be found by clicking below.
