The Depart of Justice issues a report on vaccine injuries and deaths every quarter to the Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines (click on “Meeting Book PDF – 11 MB” and start reading at page 51.) This March 5, 2015 report states that there were 117 cases for vaccine injuries and deaths compensated from 11/16/2014 to 2/15/2015.
92 of the settlements were listed in the report, giving the name of the vaccines, the injury, and the amount of time the case was pending before settlement. Five of those settlements were for deaths linked to vaccines, with three deaths related to the flu shot. 73 of the 92 settlements were for injuries and deaths due to the flu shot, and the majority of flu shot injuries were for Guillain-Barré Syndrome.
These quarterly reports on vaccine injuries and death settlements from the U.S. vaccine court are seldom, if ever, reported in the mainstream media. We report them here at Health Impact News. Here is the March 5, 2015 report:
The public health community is blaming unvaccinated children for the outbreak of measles at Disneyland, but the illnesses could just as easily have occurred due to contact with a recently vaccinated individual,” says Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation.The Foundation promotes a healthy diet, non-toxic lifestyle and freedom of medical choice for parents and their children. “Evidence indicates that recently vaccinated individuals should be quarantined in order to protect the public.”
WASHINGTON, D.C. –March 3, 2015– [ GlobeNewsWire ]
Physicians and public health officials know that recently vaccinated individuals can spread disease and that contact with the immunocompromised can be especially dangerous. For example, the Johns Hopkins Patient Guide warns the immunocompromised to “Avoid contact with children who are recently vaccinated,” and to “Tell friends and family who are sick, or have recently had a live vaccine (such as chicken pox, measles, rubella, intranasal influenza, polio or smallpox) not to visit.”1
A statement on the website of St. Jude’s Hospital warns parents not to allow people to visit children undergoing cancer treatment if they have received oral polio or smallpox vaccines within four weeks, have received the nasal flu vaccine within one week, or have rashes after receiving the chickenpox vaccine or MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine.2
“The public health community is blaming unvaccinated children for the outbreak of measles at Disneyland, but the illnesses could just as easily have occurred due to contact with a recently vaccinated individual,” says Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation. The Foundation promotes a healthy diet, non-toxic lifestyle and freedom of medical choice for parents and their children. “Evidence indicates that recently vaccinated individuals should be quarantined in order to protect the public.”
Scientific evidence demonstrates that individuals vaccinated with live virus vaccines such as MMR (measles, mumps and rubella), rotavirus, chicken pox, shingles and influenza can shed the virus for many weeks or months afterwards and infect the vaccinated and unvaccinated alike. 3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10.11.12
Furthermore, vaccine recipients can carry diseases in the back of their throat and infect others while displaying no symptoms of a disease.13,14,15
Both unvaccinated and vaccinated individuals are at risk from exposure to those recently vaccinated. Vaccine failure is widespread; vaccine-induced immunity is not permanent and recent outbreaks of diseases such as whooping cough, mumps and measles have occurred in fully vaccinated populations.16,17 Flu vaccine recipients become more susceptible to future infection after repeated vaccination.18,19
Adults have contracted polio from recently vaccinated infants. A father from Staten Island ended up in a wheel chair after contracting polio while changing his daughter’s diaper. He received a 22.5 million dollar award in 2009. 20,21
“Vaccine failure and failure to acknowledge that live virus vaccines can spread disease have resulted in an increase in outbreaks of infectious disease in both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals,” says Leslie Manookian, producer of The Greater Good. “CDC should instruct physicians who administer vaccinations to inform their patients about the risks posed to others by those who’ve been recently vaccinated.”
According to the Weston A. Price Foundation, the best protection against infectious disease is a healthy immune system, supported by adequate vitamin A and vitamin C. Well-nourished children easily recover from infectious disease and rarely suffer complications.
The number of measles deaths declined from 7575 in 1920 (10,000 per year in many years in the 1910s) to an average of 432 each year from 1958-1962.22 The vaccine was introduced in 1963. Between 2005 and 2014, there have been no deaths from measles in the U.S. and 108 deaths reported after the MMR vaccine.23

Health Impact News Editor Comments
When one looks at the current FIVE new bills being proposed in Illinois to mandate and increase vaccinations for children, one has to wonder who is really profiting from these proposed new laws??
If you live in Illinois, do you believe that you need a new law in your state to protect DENTISTS from any liability due to injuries resulting from vaccines when they give them away FREE in public clinics? From the National Vaccine Information Center:
SB 751 is scheduled for a hearing in the Judiciary Committee on 3/3/2015.
http://www.ilga.gov/senate/committees/hearing.asp?CommitteeID=1598 – hearing information
SB 751 was introduced on 2/3/2015 and referred to assignments. The bill is sponsored by Senator Michael Hastings.
The bill provides that a dentist who administers vaccinations at a public health clinic without charge to the patient or the receipt of a fee or compensation from that clinic, shall not be liable for civil damages as a result of his or her acts or omissions in providing vaccinations, except for willful or wanton misconduct.
Nothing in the law requires a dentist to assess the medical history of the person being vaccinated, to provide Vaccine Information Statements, to explain risks of the vaccines and how to identify an adverse reaction or how to file a claim with VAERS.
Why should dentists be administering vaccines to begin with? Who really profits from this bill?
The hearing is TOMORROW March 3rd. Please go to the National Vaccine Information Center Portal, register, and then click on the details for this bill and contact the bill sponsors and your own representative.
Here is a list of the other current proposed bills to increase market distribution of vaccines in Illinois:
SB 1410, Bill to Severely Restrict Religious Exemptions to Vaccination
SB 1410 was introduced on 2/20/2015. The bill is sponsored by Senator John G. Mulroe. This bill would severely restrict the current religious exemption to vaccination for school children in Illinois.
The bill would require the Department of Health to create an objection form. That form would have to be signed by a religious official attesting to a bona fide religious objection whose signature must be notarized. The bill also requires the State Board of Education to publish the exemption information on its Internet website.
According to an article in the Daily Herald by Erin Hagerty, Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno also filed legislation to further the discussion on who is required to receive vaccinations.
“Sen. Radogno’s goals are similar to Mulroe’s,” said Radogno spokeswoman Patty Schuh. “We need to tighten the rules and laws that govern the vaccination process.” http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20150220/news/150229827/

HR 184, Resolution to encourage vaccines for children, adolescents, and adults
HR 184 is a resolution, so if passed it does not have any force of law. Resolutions are used to make a statement and have a discussion on an issue. This resolution encourages the continued use of vaccines for children, adolescents, and adults to ensure the safety and health of the citizens of IL.
The resolution presents an opportunity to educate the sponsor, Rep. Bellock, and other legislators.

SB 1776 Changes the wording of the religious exemption to vaccination
Sb 1776 is sponsored by Senator Christine Radogno.
SB 1776 changes the wording of the current religious exemption from ” on religious grounds” to “grounds that the examinations or immunizations conflict with their religious tenants or practices”.
– text for SB 1776
“We need to tighten the rules and laws that govern the vaccination process.” Quote in news article by Senator Radogno in news article http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20150220/news/150229827/
HJ26, HR 144 Resolution to encourage higher rates of vaccinations
HD 26 and HR 144 are both resolutions sponsored by Representative Michael J. Zalewski. Resolutions do not enact or change laws. However, these resolutions are asking the Illinois Department of Public Health to promulgate administrative rules pursuant to the requirement for health examinations and immunizations within the School Code and to expedite this process in order to have such rules in place for the 2015-16 school year.
These resolutions are very one-sided concerning measles and measles vaccine safety and efficacy.

Saying NO To Vaccines
By Dr. Sherri Tenpenny
You have legal options!
In this nation of over 300 million, a little over a hundred cases of measles have been reported with no deaths. Some epidemic. Why is everyone so concerned? How many epidemic scares have we seen in the past few years? Both swine flu scares, SARS, bird flu, H1N1 flu, the Ebola scare and wasn’t heterosexual AIDS predicted to wipe out a quarter of the earth’s population? And this is only a partial list! As George Carlin once said, “Americans panic easily.”
But who can blame us when the “experts” say terrible things are going to happen and the media doesn’t give the other side of a story? The media merely parrots the official medical party line and even ignores and mocks those with opposing views. The fact that they’ve been wrong every time doesn’t matter; people still freak out when told, “It’s coming and it’s gonna be bad this time.”
What exactly is measles?
Measles is a short-lived viral infection that begins with a fever that lasts for a couple of days, followed by a cough, runny nose and conjunctivitis (pink eye). A rash starts on the face, hairline and upper neck, spreads down the back and trunk, and extends to the extremities. After about 5 days, the rash fades.
How dangerous is measles?
Measles is a mild and harmless disease that leaves a stronger, healthier child in its wake; most adults today who were born before 1965 got measles and have lifelong immunity as a result. Serious problems from measles are very, very rare. This, by the way, was standard medical policy; measles was just a rite of passage. It changed when the measles vaccine came on the market in the 1960s. Suddenly this mild, beneficial rite of passage became a deadly disease.
Some MDs still don’t buy the hype. As Jay Gordon, MD, former UCLA Medical Center pediatrician recently said:
This measles outbreak does not pose a great risk to a healthy child and quite frankly I don’t think it poses any risk to a healthy child.
How deadly is measles compared to the measles shot?
Dr. Anne Schuchat, director of CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, in an Associated Press interview in 2014 stated that there have been no measles deaths in the US since 2003. (Source, Source)
Now let’s look at this measles vaccine
“Pediatricians continue to defend vaccination to the death. The question parents should be asking is, ‘Whose death?’” Robert Mendelsohn, MD
Another government reporting agency, The National Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), reports 108 children died from the measles vaccine during a ten year period. But that may be a fraction of the real number because MDs often do not report vaccine injuries.
Death certificates, usually filled out by MDs, very rarely mention vaccination as the cause of death. They may write encephalitis or brain inflammation rather than vaccination even though vaccines can cause brain inflammation) on the death certificate. We don’t know the real number of vaccine injuries and deaths. But they are most likely much greater than what VAERS reports due to underreporting.
According to Dr. David Kessler, former head of the Food and Drug Administration, “Only about 1 percent of serious events [adverse drug reactions] are reported to the FDA.” Kessler DA, Natanblut S, Kennedy D. et al. Introducing MEDWatch A New Approach to Reporting Medication and Device Adverse Effects and Product Problems. JAMA. 1993;269(21):2765-2768.
We don’t know how many vaccine injuries and deaths there are but if we apply the above underreporting number to vaccine injuries then possibly as many as 10,800 children might have been harmed or killed by the measles vaccine during the period that at most four died from measles.
In addition two serious diseases rarely found in the non-vaccinated:
Atypical measles occurs only in the vaccinated and can be fatal. (Source)
Atypical measles was initially thought to occur only in those who received the killed measles vaccine, but several investigators have reported this illness in children who had been vaccinated only with the live measles vaccine.
Nichols EM. Atypical measles: a continuing problem. Am J Public Health. 1979;69(2):160-162 (Source)
The measles vaccine can also cause subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE), which is 100% fatal, in a very small number of children.
SSPE is a progressive neurological disorder of children and young adults that affects the central nervous system (CNS). It is a slow, but persistent, viral infection caused by defective measles virus.(Source)
Measles amongst the non-vaccinated?
The Amish are a religious community the vast majority of which are not vaccinated. They reported not a single case of measles between 1970 and 1987. Sutter RW, Markowitz LE, Bennetch JM, Morris W, Zell ER, Preblud SR. Measles among the Amish: a comparative study of measles severity in primary and secondary cases in households. J Infect Dis. 1991 Jan;163(1):12-6. While the local highly‐vaccinated communities still reported epidemics every 2‐3 year. Based on this experience measles appears to circulate more amongst the vaccinated than the non-vaccinated.
However useful or safe properly manufactured, distributed and administered vaccines might be in theory — and the jury is still out on the issues of safety and efficacy for a number of vaccines — vaccine experts have repeatedly reversed themselves about the safety or effectiveness of vaccines they have previously sworn were safe. Science often provides an imperfect answer.
Properly tested and licensed vaccines were later found to cause injury and death and were stopped by vaccines authorities. A 1993 MMR vaccine was found to cause mumps and encephalitis Sawada eta. 1993; Lancet 342 (7 August): 371 the Edmondson-Zagreb measles vaccine was stopped because children had an increased rick of death from other diseases years after vaccination Weiss, R. 1992. Measles battle loses potent weapon.Science; 258 (23 October): 546-547 the pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine was boycotted by doctors in Japan after 57 severe reactions and 37 deaths. The Japanese government switched to a different vaccine Sato Y, et al. 1984. Development of a pertussis component vaccine n Japan. Lancet; 1: 122-126 and Noble GR et al. 1987 Acellular and whole-cell pertussis vaccines injapan:report of a visit by US scientists. J Amer Med Ass; 257: 1351-1356.
In 2010, the Rotarix (rotavirus) vaccine was recalled because it was contaminated with DNA from pig virus. It was given to one million U.S. children, and about 30 million worldwide. A measles vaccine was also found to contain low levels of the retrovirus avian leukosis virus, and Rotateq, Merck’s rotavirus vaccine, was found to contain a virus similar to simian (monkey) retrovirus. (Source)
In 1955 hundreds of babies and adults came down with polio after they were vaccinated with the Salk vaccine. The vaccination program was temporarily halted. Eventually the Salk vaccine was replaced with the Sabin vaccine that was found to cause polio and was then changed back to the Salk vaccine.
People have a right to choose because the science is never absolute.
Pharmaceutical companies have lost millions due to dishonest practices. In 8 years (2004-2001) there were 20 pharmaceutical company settlements in the $345 million to $3 billion range. Criminal fines in the $100’s of millions are common, and have been as high as $1 billion (Pfizer 2009, GlaxoSmithKline 2012). This is routine business practice. List of largest pharmaceutical settlements (2004 – 2012), Wikipedia
Merck, manufacturer of the mumps vaccine, is going to trial in two separate lawsuits for allegedly falsifying the efficacy rate of its mumps vaccine. One suit was filed by former employee-whistleblowers, the other by pharmaceutical competitors. Lawsuits claiming Merck lied about mumps vaccine efficacy headed to trial, Fierce Vaccines, September 9, 2014.
Not only are vaccines dangerous, they are also ineffective
Diseases have occurred in fully vaccinated populations. Here is a sampling of recent headlines:
Immunized People Getting Whooping Cough
Vaccine Failure — Over 1000 Got Mumps in NY in Last Six Months
Over 98% were vaccinated in measles epidemic
Hersh BS, Markowitz LE et al. A measles outbreak at a college with a prematriculation immunization requirement. Am J Public Health. 1991;81(3):360-364.
NY measles outbreak: 90% were vaccinated.
Ohio mumps outbreak: 97% vaccinated.
Pertussis outbreak: 91% fully vaccinated.
99% vaccinated in flu epidemic
Did vaccines eradicate measles?
Deaths from measles, scarlet fever, typhoid, whooping cough, and diphtheria were down up to 99% BEFORE vaccination. The vaccines did nothing to increase the downward trend and may have kept the diseases from disappearing due to “viral shedding.”(Source)
The measles shot can only be said to work if it worked backwards in time. After the shot came out the drop in measles deaths stabilized.
What caused the great drop? Clean water, sanitation, indoor toilets, hot and cold running water, less crowding and improved living conditions resulted in better resistance to disease. Medicine had comparatively little to do with it. You can’t cure an epidemic by throwing chemicals at it. By the way, there was no vaccine for scarlet fever yet deaths dropped just the same. Why? More proof that factors other than vaccination had the major role in decreasing deaths from childhood disease.
Autism and measles vaccine– coincidence?
Who are you going to believe, me or your own eyes? – Chico Marx in Duck Soup (movie)
Some medical experts say that they have proven that the measles vaccine does not cause autism yet mothers across America and around the world report a different experience.
A mother brings her healthy child to the pediatrician for a measles shot. An hysterical mother calls soon afterwards saying something is wrong. Perhaps the child had a seizure shortly after the visit or spiked a high fever, slept for an entire day, stopped speaking, forgot his letters, no longer makes eye contact, is spinning in circles, is screaming and is no longer the child he was a few days ago. Sometimes the child dies (referred to as SIDS or crib death).
Such events are reported repeatedly by mothers around the world after various vaccinations.
In fact since 1987 the federal gov’t has paid over $3 billion to families whose child has died or been maimed for life after such an experience.
“It’s just a coincidence,” the pediatrician says.
But when he gets the same call about another child in his practice what does he say then? “These vaccines are safe, the government says so”?
But when another, and another and another mother gives a similar story asking, “What did you do to my child?” How many times will the pediatrician say, “It’s just a coincidence”?
This happens over and over – when do you allow parents to stop the shots? Who is right, the mother or the doctor? A medical researcher once told me, “Always go with the mother’s observation. She knows her child best.”
The government says your child must be vaccinated, I say, let the mother choose.
Even today the vaccination-mandate zealots belittle and dismiss the concerns of all parents by questioning their intelligence. (Source)
Today’s medical denial of the vaccine-autism link reminds me of a scene in the Marx Brothers’ movie Duck Soup where Chico is caught red-handed dallying with a pretty young woman. He denies it adding, “Who are you going to believe, me or your own eyes?”
Government authorities say they are confident they have proven that no link exists. Is this enough to force parents to vaccinate their children?
Autism affects as many as 1 in 50 children but a few decades ago (when vaccines were few) autism rates were 1 in 10,000. When will they stop the shots? When it’s one in two?
We should note an interesting phenomenon: immigrants who come to the US from native lands that have never known autism (they don’t even have a word for it) suddenly find their American-born (and vaccinated) children develop autism and other neurological disorders. (Source)
Say no to drugs
Vaccines are unsafe and ineffective. It’s time we simply said no to drugs – especially these drugs. They are creating a generation of sick children and bankrupting their parents.
When I was in a large elementary school in New York I remember seeing three or four kids in a special class who were brain injured or had birth injuries. They were few. Years later entire classrooms would be devoted to brain injured (autistic and otherwise) children. Now there are entire schools for these children.
Are we so sure that vaccines do not contribute to at least some of this damage to eliminate a parent’s right to choose not to expose their children to the possibility that vaccines might contribute to that damage?
Despite the billions spent on media hype and corporate research science can never prove a negative. Repeatedly experts have told us they know the truth, to change their minds later. No studies trying to placate an increasingly concerned public, no media hype designed to humiliate parental vaccine doubters can stop vaccine-damaged kids from coming whatever the source. For many patients the vaccine decision comes down to a child having a week lost from school or the possibility of a lifetime lost.
Sadly, autism is just the tip of the iceberg. We have a generation of chronically ill children. Today one in six children has neurodevelopmental disorders, one in eleven has asthma, one in twelve has food allergies, and one in 400 has diabetes. Let’s not forget ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, “processing disorders,” vision and hearing disorders, digestive disorders, immune system disorders and more. It’s getting worse.
For how long will parents be denied the truth? They know their child. They even have videos of their child before and after the shot – it’s not the same child. Whatever shots are doing they are not preventing children from getting sicker. They are not preventing autism and the growing number of health problems faced by children.
As Viera Scheibner, Ph.D. writes in British Medical Journal Rapid Response 24 March 2005:
The fact is that there IS evidence of the causal link between MMR and autism – perhaps the best one is that the autistic children are the living proof documented by many of their parents’ videos ‘before’ and ‘after’… However not just is there an obvious temporal association but all the criteria for establishing a causal link set by “the father of medical statistics”, Bradford Hill (1969) “The environment and disease: association or causation?”, Proc Royal Soc Med:295-300 are met, including very importantly, biological plausibility.
There is a debate on this issue – why does the media, the pharmaceutical companies and many medical doctors ignore this and assume the matter is settled?
Much research links autism and vaccination. Here is one link citing 97 research papers connecting autism and vaccines. At the least there is controversy so why not err on the side of caution?
Why should government strong-arm tactics and media hype override what parents believe on their own experience and scientists find in study after study?
While it may not be conclusive, any argument that says, “We have proven that there is no link” is also not conclusive. Why should the government prevent parents from erring on the side of caution?
Why do they call them childhood diseases?
Why do they call measles, mumps, chicken pox and the rest childhood diseases?
This is not a trick question. The answer is simple; they were contracted during childhood. Not as a baby, not as an adult, teenager, or – but a child usually around ages 4,5,6,7. It happens after you’ve used up the immunity you got from your mother (known as passive immunity).
When I was a kid almost nobody got measles in high school. You rarely if ever heard of an infant getting measles. But now newborns, infants, babies, teenagers and adults get measles and other “childhood” diseases. Why aren’t they childhood diseases like they used to be? It’s because vaccination has altered the natural immunity cycles.
Some research reveals that childhood vaccination appears to upset the age of occurrence of disease and is responsible for babies and adults getting these diseases – ages when they are more dangerous and even fatal. (Source) It is important for people to get measles when they are children. Not before and not after.
Vaccination disturbs this natural order of life.
California Measles Surveillance Update February 13, 2015
Since December 2014, there have been 113 confirmed measles cases reported in California residents.
Table 3. Age distribution of confirmed measles cases. (Source)
As you can see from the above chart the majority of those that got the “childhood disease” measles were not children. They were infants and adults. Why?
What changed things?
When little girls normally got measles and other childhood diseases they developed full immunity and years later they were able to pass on that immunity to their unborn child. Their baby is born protected against measles and lots of other diseases from the protection the mother passes on during pregnancy through the placenta (hence the term “transplacental” immunity). Breastfeeding also permits the baby to obtain additional immune factors from the mother.
Vaccinations interfere with transplacental immunity
One unanswered question is: when a little girl is vaccinated is she not able to develop full natural immunity? She passes on less immune factors to her unborn child. It has been shown that breastfed infants of vaccinated mothers have nearly three times the risk of measles infection compared to those of naturally immune mothers. In 1963 the measles vaccine was introduced and the following was discovered:
Infants whose mothers were born after 1963 had a measles attack rate of 33%, compared to 12% for infants of older mothers. Infants whose mothers were born after 1963 are more susceptible to measles than are infants of older mothers. An increasing proportion of infants born in the United States may be susceptible to measles. . . Papania M. et al., Increased susceptibility to measles in infants in the United States, Pediatrics, November 1999, Vol. 1045, No. 5, e59, pp. 1-6.
Are babies today getting measles because their mothers were vaccinated and stopped long-term breastfeeding?
Antibody levels are lower in women young enough to have been immunized by vaccination than older women”.
Lennon JL and Black FL. Maternally derived measles immunity in era of vaccine-protected mothers. J Pediatrics. 108(1):n671-676.
Is that why newborns and infants today can develop what used to be “childhood” diseases? Vaccine mandates are imposed upon millions of children without addressing this question.
In addition to live and killed bacteria, viruses and their toxins, children are injected with some of the most lethal poisons known: formaldehyde, mercury, aluminum, phenol (carbolic acid), borax (ant killer), ethylene glycol (antifreeze), dye, acetone (nail polish remover), latex, MSG, glycerol, polysorbate 80/20, sorbitol, monkey, cow, chick, pig, sheep and dog tissues and cells (may be contaminated with animal viruses), gelatin, casein, fragments of human fetus cells, human viruses, antibiotics, genetically modified yeast, animal, bacterial and viral DNA (may affect recipient’s DNA) – all of these substances are contained in one or more vaccines.
It is scientifically established that mercury poisons the nervous system Vimy MJ, Lorscheider FL. Faculty of Medicine, Univ. Of Calgary, July 1991. (Study findings) & J. Trace Elem. Exper. Med. 1990;3:111-123.] in addition research also reveals that the aluminum in vaccines may be as poisonous as mercury. Shaw C, Petrik MS. Aluminum hydroxide injections lead to motor deficits and motor neuron degeneration. J Inorg Biochem. 2009;103(11):1555.
While mercury is not in the MMR shot even more significant is that the synergistic effect of adding many of the vaccine’s ingredients together have not been studied in children. We really don’t know what the chemicals we are putting into children does to them.
More and more vaccines are recommended and mandated (101 vaccines in multiple doses by the time a child is child age (CDC recommended vaccination schedule 2015) and yet the safety of the entire vaccine schedule has not been studied:
It is indisputable that the vaccination schedule has never been tested for safety in its entirety, or in the way that it is administered. In other words, while the government renews, licenses, and compels individual vaccines, it does not test – or require vaccine makes to test – the safety and efficacy of vaccines given simultaneously or the cumulative effects of multiple vaccines.

One expert’s concern reflects those of others:
What if it were true that the way we now vaccinate our children causes more death, chronic disease, and disability than it prevents in America?
– Judy Converse, MPH, RD, LD
On a personal note
My work investigating the issue of vaccination reached a new level of clinical insight after developing Koren Specific Technique; a healthcare protocol used to determine if a patient has toxic, emotional or structural stress causing or contributing to their problems. I consistently found that autistic children revealed greater toxicity than non-vaccinated children.
Childhood diseases are good for children
Finally, the traditional hygienic school of health must be addressed because lost in the argument about measles is the fact that Infectious diseases of childhood are good for the overall health of the child and society.
The hygienic school is a long-standing approach towards health that sees the body acting intelligently and that symptoms serve a purpose. By suppressing symptoms we interfere with body function and drive disease deeper.
The child experiences physical and mental growth spurts following a childhood infectious disease. That is noticed in cultures all over the world. For example, in India measles is referred to as “visitation from a goddess.” As the medical historian Harris Coulter, PhD writes:
Contracting and overcoming childhood diseases are part of a developmental process that actually helps develop a healthy, robust, adult immune system able to meet the challenges that inevitable encounters with viruses and bacteria will present later on.
– Coulter HL. Vaccination, Social Violence and Criminality: The Medical Assault on the American Brain. Washington, DC: Center for Empirical Medicine. 1990.
That may include protection from cancer:
The study consistently revealed a lower cancer risk for patients with a history of febrile infectious childhood diseases.
Albonico HU, Braker HU, Husler J. Febrile infectious childhood diseases in the history of cancer patients and matched controls. Medical Hypotheses.1998;51(4):315-320.
Others have observed the link between cancer and vaccinations.
I am convinced that the increase of cancer is due to vaccination.
– Forbes Laurie, MD, Medical Director of the Metropolitan Cancer Hospital, London. Quoted: Vaccines, Are They Really Safe and Effective? by Neil Miller
The most frequent disposing condition for cancerous development is … vaccination and re-vaccination.
– Dennis Turnbull, MD (30 years cancer researcher) Quoted: Vaccines, Are They Really Safe and Effective? by Neil Miller
The Australian vaccine researcher Vera Scheibner, PhD writes:
There is no need to protect children from contracting infectious diseases of childhood. These diseases are there to prime and mature their immune system … chronic ill-health, colds, otitis media, and upper and lower respiratory tract diseases are well-documented in vaccinated children…. A well-nourished child will go through rubella, whooping cough, chicken pox and the rest with flying colors.
– Scheibner V. Immunization: The Medical Assault on the Immune System. Blackheath, Australia: Author,1993; xxii.
A logical person, reading the above, would take their child to a measles party and never give the measles vaccine to them. But with vaccination we’re usually dealing with emotion, not logic. We’re dealing with fear mongering from the medical profession and the media. Hence the uproar over a mild condition that is ultimately a blessing in disguise.
The vaccine-mandate zealots move forwards with more and more vaccines to be given to our children (and adults) without addressing these very important questions – questions that might have life or death significance.
What should we do about measles epidemics?
The vaccine-mandate zealots believe they have the facts, all the facts, and nothing but the facts. However the reality is that they are often mistaken.
Among mistakes made about vaccines in the past was that measles would be completely eradicated in 1982. Hinman AR, 1979. The opportunity and obligation to eliminate measles from the United States. J Am Med Ass; 242 (11): 1157-1162
And that it was eradicated in the US in 2000. This is from the US Centers for Disease Control http://www.cdc.gov/measles/about/faqs.html
Q: Has measles been eliminated from the United States?
A: Yes. In 2000, the United States declared that measles was eliminated from this country. The United States was able to eliminate measles because it has a highly effective measles vaccine, a strong vaccination program that achieves high vaccine coverage in children and a strong public health system for detecting and responding to measles cases and outbreaks.
Every 2-3 years, there is an upsurge of measles irrespective of vaccination compliance.
Robertson SE, Markowitz LE, Dini EF, and Orenstein WA. 1992. A million dollar measles outbreak: epidemiology, risk factors, and selective revaccination strategy. Publ Health Reports; 197 (1): 24-31. See more here.
How many children must die, be crippled physically and mentally and live lost lives before we recognize what we have done? In our worship of technology when will we recognize our hubris and realize that we are not God? We do not know enough to justify mandating 101 vaccinations from birth, for every single child.
What should we do about measles epidemics? We must work with nature. Since measles returns cyclically irrespective of vaccination rates, returning to traditional healing wisdom will return us to a time when autism, allergies, asthma, diabetes and other illnesses seen so often in children today will once again be rare or non-existent. That is what led Dr. Robert Mendelsohn, the famous pediatrician and anti-vaccination campaigner to say, “One grandmother is worth two MDs.”
A sick child needs love, nourishment, comfort and support while they are going through a healing crisis no matter what the cause. Natural, non-suppressive healthcare systems such as chiropractic, homeopathy, naturopathy, herbalism, Chinese Medicine, Indian Medicine and many other “natural” systems work with the body.
Researchers, medical doctors and health educators need to remember our place in nature, acknowledge our limitations and learn some humility. In our struggle to “conquer” disease we have unleashed an epidemic of chronically ill children who would have been far better had we not interfered with natural diseases and instead worked with the natural cycles of life; recognizing that the wisdom that permeates nature is wiser than us all.
There are treatments that can heal vaccine damage, but few physicians in the conventional medical care system know about them, since vaccine injuries are usually denied as the cause of any illness. Some parents with autistic children report that homeopathy has completely reversed their children’s autism and healed other serious health conditions caused by vaccines. This article explains how homeopathic remedies can bring about healing for many types of vaccine injuries.
Homeopathy is not the only treatment that has helped children and adults recover from vaccine damage, but it is the one that is the focus of this article. I will describe how homeopathy can bring about a true cure for the harm that vaccines have caused to children and adults.
The National Vaccine Information Center states a very sobering fact about vaccines:
“Every vaccine recommended for use by government and doctors has been associated with hospitalizations, injuries and deaths. There is no guarantee that a particular vaccine will be safe to give to a particular individual and will not result in permanent injury or death.” 
Vaccine Damage Takes Many Forms
It is a tragedy when a normal young child suddenly starts losing the ability to speak sentences or even to speak words after receiving vaccines. The ability to have positive social interactions with other children or adults can disappear in a matter of days after vaccines have been given to children.
Intellectual development can be lost and even successful potty training skills can disappear. The ability to sit quietly, listen to a story being read, and the ability to learn can suddenly be replaced with hand flapping, body spinning, head banging, food allergies, asthma, agitation, hyperactivity, learning disabilities, chronic colds and fevers, constant stomach pain, constipation, and a general failure to grow and thrive.
There are also serious consequences for adults who use vaccines. Formerly productive adults can lose their independence and become paralyzed, infertile, chronically ill, and even die, because of vaccine damage. It happens every day, yet few people make the connection between their illnesses and vaccine use.
Please see the previous article on identifying vaccine damage for additional information:
Hope for Recovery from Vaccine Related Illness
In most cases, physicians who give vaccines completely deny any relationship between vaccines and the negative health effects that people observe. Most physicians will insist that vaccine damage is extremely rare and will insist that the changes are just coincidence.  Faced with this denial, it often takes years for people to put all the pieces together.
By the time parents fully awaken to the harm that has occurred to their children, many have already resigned themselves to a lifetime of caretaking their disabled children. Some parents will even receive counsel from their physicians to give up their children to the care of the state, because they have no treatments to offer and can offer no hope of recovery. Some physicians will try to convince parents that this is a genetic problem that might be cured someday, but not in the near future.
The conventional medical care system leaves parents feeling like helpless victims without any good options.
The truth is there are good options for restoring health after vaccine damage, and homeopathy is one of them!
What is the History of Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a complete system of healthcare which has been used to successfully treat all types of illnesses for over 200 years. Its popularity rose rapidly in the early 1800s because it safely cured people of conditions that allopathic physicians could not cure through the standard treatments that were used during that time.
Homeopath, Amy Lansky, PhD, former editor of the journal of the North American Society of Homeopaths, and author of Impossible Cure: The Promise of Homeopathy, described the techniques that characterized medical treatment in the late 1700s and early 1800s. This was the time period when homeopathy was developed. She stated:
The most popular treatments tried to encourage sweating, vomiting, diarrhea, bleeding via cutting of veins (venesection) or the application of leeches, or the creation of blisters to draw inflammation from one part of the body to another. Sedation via opiates was also popular, as was the use of toxic doses of mercury in the treatment of venereal diseases. 
Homeopathy and homeopathic remedies have been successfully used to treat and cure all forms of illness for over two centuries. It has been proven to cure all forms of physical illness, mental illness, and developmental problems. This system of healthcare can safely treat people when they are sickened by infectious diseases during epidemics, and it can reverse and cure the harm that vaccines have done to people. Even animals benefit from homeopathic veterinary treatment.
Amy Lansky provides us with this historical perspective about homeopathy. She states:
It is amazing that a medicine that was such an intrinsic part of 19th century America became nearly forgotten in the 20th. Pioneers carried homeopathic medical kits as they traveled across the continent. Indeed, homeopathic remedies were often the only effective medicine available to them. The first American domestic manual (a medical reference for use in the home) was a homeopathic reference — The Domestic Physician, published in 1835 and written by Constantine Hering, MD, the father of American homeopathy. 
Vaccine Damage is Not a New Phenomenon
The harmful consequences of vaccine use are not new. Some physicians observed vaccine related damage in their patients as soon as the smallpox vaccine began to be used in the first part of the 1800s. People were harmed by vaccines at that time, and they continue to be harmed today.  Doctors who used vaccines at that time were pressing for mandatory vaccinations while homeopaths were raising the red flag of warning about vaccination dangers.
Homeopath, Kate Birch, RSHom (NA), CCH, CMT, author of Vaccine Free: Prevention and Treatment of Infectious Contagious Disease with Homeopathy, describes what one of the early nineteenth century homeopaths believed about vaccination. Kate Birch described his conclusions as follows:
Burnett argued that vaccination, as practiced by Pasteur and Jenner (who developed the cowpox vaccine) using material doses, would eventually end in disaster because it was temporary protection. It did not individualize the dose to the strength of the individual and it brought long-term chronic consequences. He argued also that vaccination would actually increase the mortality rate because, in addition to the vaccinosis [adverse reaction to vaccine] incurred, if the person also caught the disease the prophylaxis was intended to prevent, they were more likely to die from the disease than if they had just caught the disease without the vaccination. 
Homeopathic physicians in the 19th century observed that some people never got over the effects of vaccinations and stayed in a poor state of health. Their immune systems could not clear the infectious materials from vaccination, and they stayed chronically ill. Chronic illness that can last a lifetime is the most common consequence of vaccination. Vaccinations can also cause other latent diseases to appear, or worsen pre-existing illnesses. 
200 years later, people are still getting sick from vaccinations. Some become totally disabled, and some are dying from the adverse effects of vaccination or from the actual diseases that the vaccines were intended to prevent.

Testimonies of Healing from Vaccine Damage
It is not hard to find testimonies on the internet from parents who have witnessed their children be cured from autism spectrum disorders, learning disabilities, attention deficit disorders, pervasive developmental delays, non-existent speech, failure to communicate or respond, rage attacks, inability to learn, inability to socialize, severe food allergies, asthma, intense anxiety, obsessive compulsive behaviors, and intense levels of digestive system pain. Homeopathy is one method that has brought about these permanent cures for children and adults.
Adults who were injured from vaccines are not usually stuck in developmental prison in the same way as children. Their confinement is caused by chronic disease and disability. Adults experience fatigue, depression, brain fog, various types of pain syndromes, inability to digest food, high sensitivity to environmental toxins, high sensitivity to electromagnetic fields, and numerous other factors. They often find it necessary to seal themselves in a protective bubble of social isolation in order to maintain a partial level of normal functioning. Survival is about avoiding the next toxic exposure that could come from any direction – contaminated food, contaminated air, contaminated water, contaminated clothing, contaminated housing, etc.
An Example of Vaccine Injury and Recovery from the Tetanus Vaccine
If you search for recovery from vaccine damage on the internet, you will find many testimonies from people who recovered from adverse reactions to vaccination. I selected the following testimony from a very long list of testimonies on a popular website.
Annette Liberty posted the following testimony on January 29, 2014. She described what happened to her after she received the tetanus booster vaccine in 2001. The vaccine reaction caused paralysis and activated a latent case of Lyme disease. She was disabled by the combination of both conditions. Annette stated:
On December 5, 2001, I became paralyzed from the waist down and was bedridden for 7 months. Three weeks before this happened I had a tetanus shot because I had cut my finger and required stitches. What a mistake that was. I was seriously ill with a fatigue that lasted many years, but more intensely during those first 7 months and could hardly make it to the bathroom or take a shower. I saw 9 doctors, including a neurologist at Stanford and one at the University of California San Francisco. No one knew what was wrong and they didn’t want to see me again, because they could not find anything in my blood tests.
I sought out healers. I started to see an herbalist. I was desperate. After 7 months, I could go back to work part time but could not walk more than about 50 steps a day. I could not stand more than 30 seconds without pain up and down my legs. The leg and walking problems lasted for several years.
After 2 ½ years my herbalist was the one who discovered it was Lyme. I went to a Lyme specialist who confirmed it with a more intense blood test. I was on cocktails of powerful antibiotics for 3 ½ years. They made me very sick and did not help much, but it was all I had.
I then heard about Dr. Ronald D. Whitmont in Rhinebeck, New York (and New York City) through my herbalist. … Dr. Whitmont is an MD and classically trained homeopath. … During my first conversation with him, I felt like I had come home. Dr. Whitmont was very understanding, supportive and calming. We talked for a couple of hours and he told me which homeopathic med to take.
I was nervous to stop the antibiotics fearing I would get very ill again. I started taking the daily homeopathic remedy. [At first] I felt a little sick, but after 30 days on homeopathy, I was out of pain and felt good. Unbelievable!
It’s been several years [since I started using homeopathy], and I’m almost back to normal. I think homeopathy is a true miracle, and a true Godsend. I still take maintenance doses but I feel it’s helping my future health in more ways than I even realize. At this moment, I’m walking on the treadmill 30 minutes a day, lifting weights and doing yoga. I plan to increase this as I continue to get stronger and stronger.
Over time I realized the tetanus vaccine was what nearly killed me and brought out the Lyme with a severity I can’t describe. 
I recently contacted Annette for an update about her condition. I will share her progress report later in this article.
Homeopathy Compared to Conventional Medical Care
Allopathic medical care is currently the dominant system of healthcare in North America and Europe. When most people think of healthcare American style, with its drugs, surgeries, and expensive diagnostic equipment and procedures, they are thinking of allopathic medicine.
The healthcare system known as homeopathy is completely different from allopathic medicine. Homeopaths think differently about health and illness. Their understanding of illness and how to bring about a cure stands in direct opposition to the practice of allopathic medicine. In fact, one of the reasons that the allopathic physicians formed the American Medical Association (AMA) in 1847 was to destroy the practice of homeopathy.  Many allopathic physicians were switching over to homeopathy at that time, and the financial interests of allopathic physicians were being threatened.
Homeopaths see physical functioning, emotional functioning, and mental functioning as a unified system. Homeopaths would never consider treating one aspect of a person while ignoring everything else. For example, they would not treat a physical symptom without exploring symptoms that are occurring in the emotional realm or mental realm.
Dr. Richard Moskowitz, MD, made the transition from being an allopathic physician to being a homeopathic physician. He describes his role as a homeopath. He stated:
The art of caring for the sick transcends merely assembling information and doling out treatment, which may not work or even be chosen properly until an appropriate setting and healing relationship are created for them. As much as whatever we do to them, those afflicted with pain, suffering, and disability seek relationships of trust with friends, loved ones, and professionals,
1) to help them make sense out of what is happening to them;
2) to help them construct a working mythology of their illness;
3) to help them discover and navigate a safe passage through it; and
4) to help them envision a life beyond it, insofar as possible. 
On the other hand, allopathic medicine emphasizes diagnosis followed by drugs and surgical procedures to treat the symptoms of disease. It uses vaccines with the hope of preventing infectious diseases for which it has no successful treatment or cure.
Allopathic medicine uses substances (drugs) that eliminate symptoms by suppressing them. The disappearance of symptoms is associated with successful treatment. Multiple symptoms that are observed at the same time for a patient might be seen as part of a single disease, but commonly, the symptoms might be seen as several unrelated diseases.
Allopathic Approach to Illness
Consider this example:
A man goes to an allopathic doctor with chest congestion. The doctor diagnoses him as having bronchitis. The doctor then asks if the man is having any other problems. He tells the doctor that he has itching feet. He also says that he keeps waking up at 2:00 a.m. and remains awake until 4:00 every morning no matter what he does. Finally, he confesses that he keeps having anxiety attacks while he is at work.
In the worst case scenario, the allopathic doctor might prescribe an antibiotic for his bronchitis. He also might prescribe sleeping pills for his disturbed sleeping pattern, an antianxiety medication for his uncontrolled anxiety, and a medicated foot powder for his itchy feet. He received four prescriptions for four different diagnosed illnesses. Each prescription is designed to attack and destroy a specific symptom that was described by the patient.
If everything works as the allopathic doctor intends, then the symptoms will all disappear and the man will be considered to have been successfully treated. If symptoms do not disappear or new ones appear, then additional medications will be tried. The goal is simply the alleviation of symptoms.
Homeopathic Approach to Illness
A homeopath will approach the same man and his collection of symptoms differently. He will ask many questions during an interview that could take one to two hours. He will investigate the lung congestion by asking the person to describe the cough. When does it occur, how long does it last, how does it feel, etc. He will ask about the itchy feet. How do your feet smell, is the itching worse at a certain time of the day, do you have itching problems elsewhere in your body, etc.? Regarding the sleeping problem, he might be asked if there are certain thoughts or feelings that he is experiencing when he wakes during the night. Does he have persistent dreams or physical symptoms when he wakes up? He might be asked to describe his mental state during the hours when he is awake. The situation with anxiety would be explored in detail to learn how and when it occurs. Who is involved? When does it happen? Where does it happen? Does it occur at certain times of the day or evening? What is he doing when the anxiety flairs up, etc.?
The homeopath is not usually attempting to give the patient a diagnosis. Rather, the homeopath is simply trying to assemble a distinctive set of symptoms that perfectly describe the person’s over-all state of illness. In other words, how does the patient’s condition depart from his view of health?
A homeopath who uses classical homeopathy will then begin the process of finding a single homeopathic remedy that would treat the entire set of symptoms. Sometimes homeopaths use multiple remedies at the same time when there is severe vaccine damage. Homeopathic remedies are selected on the basis of their ability to produce the same symptoms in a healthy person that the ill person is experiencing. The principle that Dr. Hahnemann (the creator of homeopathy) discovered in the late 1790s was that substances which have the ability to produce the same set of symptoms that a person is experiencing will actually be highly effective in stimulating the person’s body to heal itself from those symptoms. This is called the Law of Similars.
Homeopathy is Gentle and Powerful
Homeopathy does not wage war on disease and seek to destroy the symptoms of disease through brute force. It does not bring substances into the body as is done with allopathic drugs, for the purpose of doing hand to hand combat against disease. Instead, homeopathy and its remedies are intended to gently stimulate and strengthen the body so that it can overcome illness through its own vital force and strength. Homeopathic remedies restore the natural ability of the body to defend itself against illness and to heal itself. When this happens, a person is truly cured of what ails him.
Homeopathic author and teacher, Kate Birch states:
The success of homeopathy is a result of treatment directed at improving the defense mechanism’s ability to defend itself rather than eradicating the offending agents. In contrast to natural disease, we now find a multitude of human-made diseases that come from the use of toxic medications, suppressive medications, vaccinations, antibiotics, artificial foods, pollution, and nuclear waste in our environment; all are agents that act as interventions, debilitations, or suppressions to our natural defense mechanism.
Because of this the health of successive generations has become weaker and weaker. The ability to produce curative responses to the influences in the environment has been thwarted. No longer do we have the strength to react unabated to acute disease.
We rely on toxic external medicaments to control the symptoms and suffer the long-term consequences of chronic disease. In order to preserve our health we must first have the ability to respond to acute disease. Present day medical practitioners have failed to recognize this trend, are at a loss to explain it, and are unable to adapt their system of medicine to address it. In contrast to suppressive or palliative measures, homeopathic medicine (through the Law of Similars) aims to reduce one’s susceptibility through the production of a curative defensive response, which removes the disease. 
Illness, from the homeopathic point of view, represents a disturbance in the fundamental energy system of a person. The vital force that keeps a person alive has been damaged, weakened, or disordered, and it needs to be restored so that the person can be cured of his or her illness. Homeopathic remedies are intended to remind the body of its normal functioning, so that it can be restored to strength and vitality. Such restoration will occur at the physical, emotional, and mental levels.
Allopathic Drugs and Side Effects
When allopathic physicians use drugs, there are often many unwanted side effects. Pharmaceutical manufacturers create drugs which are designed to destroy a certain unwanted symptom. However, their drugs also create other symptoms which are called side effects. If the side effects are less troublesome than the original symptom, then the patient will be reasonably happy and the allopathic physician will feel that he has successfully treated his patient. If the side effects are unacceptable to the patient, then the doctor will search for another drug that will destroy the unwanted symptom while producing a different set of side effects. This process continues until the patient stops complaining about side effects or the allopathic physician prescribes additional drugs to eliminate the unacceptable side effects.
In most cases, the suppression of symptoms by allopathic treatment ultimately produces other long-term chronic illnesses. For example, children who are taken to the doctor with childhood eczema will often be treated with cortisone creams. Doctors might warn parents that asthma often develops in children who have eczema. The truth is that the cortisone treatment does not cure the eczema, even though it might appear to disappear from the skin. In actuality, the disease process that produced the eczema is driven deeper into the body and reappears later (in a year or so) as asthma. The cortisone did not cure anything, it just transformed the symptom of skin dysfunction into a more serious disease of respiration, which can be life threatening. 
Allopathic drugs and treatments do not have a positive effect upon the vital force in the body. They do not improve the strength of a person, and they do not provide for physical, emotional, or mental renewal. Rather, they just suppress symptoms, and add side effects.
Homeopathy Releases Disease
Homeopathic remedies do not drive diseases deeper into the body. Rather, they help the body overcome or eliminate the disease. Thus, after a symptom of disease is overcome, the body is healthier and stronger than it had been.
Sometimes toxins need to be removed from the body before healing can occur. There can sometimes be a temporary aggravation or intensification of symptoms while toxins are being excreted from the body and the person’s vital forces are being strengthened. When this is completed, then the person will be stronger and will feel renewed.
The selection of a homeopathic remedy is not based on a disease diagnosis, but on the specific collection of symptoms that are being revealed in an individual person’s illness. The more unique the symptoms, the more likely it will be for the homeopath to find the best possible remedy for the person. Remedies are matched to each individual person by their complete collection of symptoms, and not to a particular disease diagnosis.
How is Annette Doing Today?
Annette shared the following information with me when I asked her for an update about her condition. She has been continuing with her homeopathic treatments. She stated:
Since I posted my testimonial [in January of 2014], I have been getting gradually, slowly better.
I can walk one or two miles a day, and sometimes break into a little run for a bit. My goal is to run at least a half hour a day.
I can lift some weights and do a little yoga each day.
I work as a realtor, so I’m blessed to set my own work schedule. I don’t go into the office early in the morning, but I do go in every day and sometimes work weekends.
I plan to stay on homeopathy for a while, perhaps a few more years, and on some kind of maintenance probably for the rest of my life, if I need to. I also take along with the homeopathic meds, a supplement that is colloidal silver. Since the tetanus shot, I am extremely sensitive to everything, so I take just one drop of colloidal silver every other day, and I take a homeopathic medicine about once a week. I cannot do without those two things, and it seems one does not work without the other for me.
I still have a ways to go. I am extremely sensitive to electronic devices and gadgets: computers of all kinds, anything that is electronic that is new and that I’m not used to. It’s very aggravating. My old TV broke and I can’t tolerate the new flat screen TV’s. So, I had to get a used old [style] TV.
My diet is extremely limited. Foods bother me. I just eat boiled ground chicken, steamed veggies and quinoa.
I cannot wear new clothes. The chemicals in the new clothes bother me.
If I have to stand in a long line anywhere, I have a cane that turns into a seat. In the past, I had to use this cane everywhere I went. Now I use it less and less and less.
However, I know, and I do feel this intuitively, that all of the above sensitivities will resolve themselves once my body is stronger and I am able to run, and work out physically a bit more.
I feel (and I can’t prove it) that the vaccination harmed my liver so very badly, that it’s not working properly to protect me from these things like it does for the average healthy person. 
In my opinion, Annette’s recovery is spectacular. It was the allopathic medical system and its vaccines that brought her to the point of total disability. It was the allopathic medical system, which is controlled by pharmaceutical companies, that left her to languish with her disability. They had nothing to offer Annette after they destroyed her health with their vaccines. It was ultimately homeopathy that returned her to the level of health she enjoys today. She is not totally cured yet, but she has hope. Her progress has been amazing despite the challenges that remain.
Annette told me, “It is my prayer, that what I have learned to help me recover, will help many more people recover themselves.” To that prayer, I must say, “Amen!”
How are Homeopathic Remedies Made and Taken?
Most homeopathic remedies are made from plants, mineral, and animal products. If the substance is soluble in water or alcohol, then it is dissolved in these liquids. If the substance is not soluble, then it is ground into an extremely fine powder with milk sugar and is processed in a slightly different method. Regardless of the original substance, it goes through a series of sequential dilutions.
For example, 1 drop of the original liquid solution is put into a glass vial. Nine drops of water/alcohol are then added to the vial and then the sealed glass vial is succussed (shaken). The succussion of the vial is not a random shaking, but involves a forceful slapping of the vial against a solid object. Dr. Hahnemann originally took the vial in his hand and forcefully slammed it down on a leather covered Bible that he had on a table. The repeated slamming or succussing of the vial activates subtle changes in the solution. Succussion is a necessary step for the creation of the remedy. Succussion is believed to cause restructuring of the water/alcohol at the molecular level. 
After the succussion of the first vial is completed, 1 drop of the liquid from that vial is added to an empty vial and nine drops of water/alcohol are added. The vial is succussed again. This process is repeated until the desired number of dilutions is reached.
A homeopathic remedy that is called “6X” or “6D” has gone through 6 dilutions. Other dilution ratios are also used such as 1 drop being added to 99 drops of water or alcohol, which makes “C” potencies. There are also remedies that have a dilution ratio of one drop to 50,000 drops of water/alcohol. These highly diluted remedies are called “LM” potencies. 
The final homeopathic potency is used to coat tiny sugar pills, which are then used for treatment. When the pills are taken, they are placed under the tongue so they can dissolve. Sometimes they are dissolved in water and swallowed.
Different potencies of the same substance produce different effects. The remedies can be given daily, or on a less frequent schedule depending on the need of the client. Sometimes only one small dose is given, which completely cures the illness.
How do Homeopathic Remedies Work?
Homeopath, Kate Birch gives more insight into the way homeopathic remedies work in the human body. She states:
The system of homeopathy is based on the principle of “like cures like.” A substance’s ability to treat a disease has its power in the ability to produce a disturbance similar to that disease. The more homeopathic (similar) a substance is to the symptom(s) in question, the greater its potential to cure the condition. Symptoms are understood to be a manifestation of a disturbance in the vital force; they are not the problem but the answer to the problem. Taking away the symptoms without treating the problem will result in the vital force finding a different avenue to express the problem. The goal of homeopathic treatment is to support the vital force in its wisdom to create balance. 
In the case of Annette, the allopathic physicians did not have a drug that could take away her paralysis and extreme fatigue/weakness. They were not able to think in terms of how they might strengthen her vital force so that healing could occur.
Kate Birch continues with her discussion of homeopathic healing. She states:
Every medicinal substance has a primary action and a secondary action. The primary action is what the substance does to the person. The secondary action is what the vital force does in response to the substance. In material doses (substances in crude form), the secondary action to a substance is usually in equal and opposite force to its primary action. The process of potentization reduces the primary action, while the secondary action of the vital force is increased. The higher the potency the less significant the primary action is and the greater the secondary action is. 
Thus, the greater the number of times that a substance is diluted, the greater will be its ability to help restore the damaged energetic patterns (vital force) in the body, which is causing the symptoms of illness.
Undiluted substances, such as pharmaceutical drugs, treat symptoms by suppressing them, which does not bring healing to the energetic patterns of illness in the body. The result is that the vital force or energetic pattern will simply express itself with a different set of symptoms after the drug has been taken. The drug will suppress symptoms and the vital force will manifest different symptoms as a result. If the drug is discontinued, then the original symptoms usually return.
When Annette was taking antibiotics for three and a half years with minimal improvement, she was simply maintaining the status quo. Her vital force was stuck in the Lyme disease pattern, and antibiotics could not get her out of it.
The highly diluted homeopathic remedies are intended to express a stronger effect upon the vital force in the body. They will have a slight effect on physical symptoms, and usually produce a slight intensification of the symptoms for a short while. The intensification of symptoms is a sign that the remedy is a good match for the illness. During the time of intensification, a healing at the energetic level will take place. The person will rally the forces needed to overcome the illness to some degree. Sometimes the illness will be completely overcome, and sometimes additional doses of the remedy will be needed. Sometimes a different potency will be required to finish the healing process, or as the symptoms change, a different remedy will be needed.
When Annette started taking the homeopathic remedy, she had an intensification of symptoms, which was followed by an improvement in health after the antibiotics were discontinued.
Does Homeopathy Work Because of the Placebo Effect?
Critics of homeopathy claim that the effectiveness of homeopathy is caused by the placebo effect. They claim that the sugar pills are nothing but sugar, and any healing that does occur is the result of people simply wanting to be better.
A 2010 study confirmed that homeopathic remedies were able to disrupt the cellular division of human breast cancer cells and produce cytotoxic effects in laboratory experiments. The homeopathic remedies, Carcinosin, Phytolacca, Conium, and Thuja were each able to kill human breast cancer cells in laboratory tests. These homeopathic remedies were also used to treat normal breast cells. They did not harm healthy tissue and actually strengthened the cells. The homeopathic remedies also stimulated the production of substances that would naturally inhibit the growth of cancer. 
Since these experiments were treating cells in a petri dish, there was no possibility of the placebo effect. The cancer cells were not expecting to die from the homeopathic remedies, and the healthy breast cells didn’t know that they were intended to become stronger or become more resistant to cancerous growth.
A German study with pigs compared the use of pharmaceutical drugs and homeopathic remedies for preventing respiratory infections. A total of 1440 pigs were divided into four groups. One group received a combination of homeopathic remedies mixed in with their normal feed. The second group received antibiotics and other allopathic drugs in a routine low prophylactic dose. The third group received a high therapeutic dose of the standard blend of allopathic drugs that would be used to treat cases of respiratory infections. The fourth group was the control. They were not treated, just fed their normal diet.
Amy Lansky explains the results of this study in Chapter 7 of her book. She stated:
The results of this study were startling: homeopathic treatment was far superior to prophylactic doses of antibiotics in preventing respiratory disease. Prophylactic allopathic treatment made it only 11 percent less likely [than control] that the pigs would become sick. But homeopathic remedies made it 40 percent less likely. When the allopathic drugs were raised to therapeutic levels, it became 70 percent less likely that the pigs would become diseased. Now, it is clearly impossible to keep farmed animals medicated at high levels of antibiotics all of the time. Even at lower prophylactic levels, the entrance of these drugs into the food chain has become a societal health problem. This study showed that homeopathy provides a much safer and more effective solution than prophylactic antibiotics. 
Amy Lansky concludes her remarks about the pig study by stating:
I believe it is animal studies like this one that provide the most compelling proof of the effectiveness of homeopathy. Can anyone seriously believe that pigs taking remedies in their feeding trough are getting well because of the placebo effect? 
Success in Healing Austism
Homeopath, Cindy Griffin, consultant, author, educator, and cofounder of the Homeopathy Center of Houston, describes their success with curing children who have been diagnosed with autism. They use the Autism Treatment Evaluation Checklist (ATEC) with their clients to measure progress. If there is healing, then there should be improvements in behavior and a reduction in the need for special care. This is exactly what happens to many of the severely disabled children they help.
We see behavioral, cognitive, communication and academic improvements across the board. We have a fairly strict definition of what we call recovered.
Children with autism are fully recovered when they look like normal children of their age. Sometimes they may have a little social and academic catch-up to do, but typically they do it at warp speed.
Right now in 2015, we already have over 100 children who are no longer autistic nor do they have PANDAS (Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections). These children are not dependent on supplements or special diets. They do not have educational aids in school, special education classes, therapists, and are not receiving special accommodations in school. 
Finding a Homeopath who can Treat Vaccine Damage
Sometimes it may take some effort to find a homeopath who has the training and/or experience that you are seeking. You may need to interview a few homeopaths before deciding who will be the best person to help with vaccine damage. Be up front with the homeopaths. Tell them your needs and ask if they have experience working with other people who have vaccine damage. It is OK to ask if they were successful in helping other vaccine damaged clients recover.
Kate Birch – Vaccine Injury and the Role of Homeopathy
Kate Birch describes the challenge of using homeopathy to treat vaccine related illnesses. She stated:
In order to treat vaccine damage effectively with homeopathy, a homeopath must be able to understand the varying distinctions between the underlying health of the person, the diseases in the vaccinations, the responses of the vital force to the vaccinations, and the resultant complex disease state. 
Information about Kate Birch’s books and training is available here:
Kate Birch also recommends homeopaths who use CEASE [Complete Elimination of Autistic Spectrum Expression] therapy. This is one of the types of homeopathic treatment that is used for people with vaccine damage.
In a phone conversation with Kate Birch, she explained that homeopathy can be very helpful for many types of vaccine damage. Sadly, she noted that damage from HPV vaccine is the most difficult to treat. She wants people to understand that injuries from HPV vaccines are deep and insidious, and difficult to clear. She explained that HPV vaccines cause progressive and debilitating neurological injury to the point of death. 
Amy Lansky – The Impossible Cure
Amy Lansky has a website for her book Impossible Cure, which was set up for people who want additional information about using homeopathy to help with vaccine injury.
This is her referral list of classical homeopaths who have experience with vaccine damage recovery:
You may also wish to ask for a referral from your chiropractor, osteopath, or acupuncturist. Such practitioners are often aware of good homeopaths in the area. Sometimes the person who is responsible for managing supplements and remedies sold at health food stores will be aware of experienced homeopaths as well.
Homeopaths are not licensed at the state or national level. Thus, it is important to look at their qualifications. Those who have participated in formal training programs and who are certified by national organizations will be preferred if you cannot obtain a referral from someone who you know.
Amy Lansky provided the following list of organizations to help people locate a classical homeopath in the United States and Canada. 
Also see the list at:
This list is self-referred. Practitioners may or may not have been assessed for competency. Be sure to check their qualifications. They also have lists of homeopathic study groups. You could contact a study group in your area to find a homeopath.
This is a professional society of homeopaths. They hold the title RSHom (NA). Most NASH members are professional homeopaths. They have completed comprehensive homeopathic training and have met certification standards.
Some licensed health care providers such as medical doctors (MD), osteopathic doctors (DO), and naturopaths (ND), obtained training in homeopathy. They have DHt certification (Diplomate in Homeotherapeutics).
