NATURAL IMMUNITY-Why You Should NOT Vaccinate!
AN INFORMED CHOICE

Vaccines are the best
known attempt by conventional medicine to practice preventive care. Unfortunately, they are devastating to the immune
system and are a major cause of chronic disease.
The United States government
has acknowledged the fact that many children suffer permanent brain damage after being vaccinated. They have even set aside
funds to compensate families who incur such a tragedy. They claim the benefits outweigh the risks. Homeopaths have been espousing
the dangers for decades.
Veterinarians are very
aware of the damage they do. Upon examining the medical records of a pet with chronic health problems, I often find that the
symptoms first appeared within three months of receiving their "shots."
Common sense should make
any thinking person concerned about the negative affects of immunizations. Who could think it is safe to inject several
mutated viruses and/or bacteria directly into the body? This
bypasses all of the primary defense systems, e.g. skin, mucus, tears, saliva,
gastric juices, etc. These organisms are absorbed directly into the blood stream and lymphatic system without the body receiving
its usual early warnings from the primary systems.
The body is hit with a barrage
of foreign substances including antibiotics, preservatives and adjuvants (chemicals designed to irritate the immune system
thereby "increasing" the protective response). It should come as no surprise that many animals and people cannot withstand
such an attack without sustaining damage.
Studies have shown that vaccines can
be immunosuppressive for sometime after administration. Yet, vaccines are often administered to sick individuals.
In addition, modified live
vaccines result in shedding of mutated organisms into the environment, thereby, exposing others.
I believe that vaccines disturb
the healing force of the body so severely that they can cause everything from allergies to cancer in susceptible individuals.
Recently, mainstream veterinary researchers and specialists have published articles on vaccine-related skin problems
and tumors. Maybe they are catching on at last.
Why are vaccines so popular?
One reason is that we have been sold a bill of goods when it comes to their safety and
effectiveness. The medical community and drug companies have convinced
everyone that vaccines were the main reason for the end of the polio epidemic as well as a number of other diseases. As a
matter of fact, the polio epidemic was ending BEFORE the vaccine was introduced.
After routine immunizations
began, the number of cases went up. The epidemic ended without vaccinations in some countries. In other countries, polio did
not exist until vaccination began to "protect" the population.
If we review history,
we find that better sanitation and hygiene are responsible for ending most epidemics.
There is another reason
for the popularity of vaccines. They are a multi-billion dollar industry. Veterinarians generally rely on immunizations for
a large percentage of their income. This is why most continue to vaccinate pets annually despite the fact that published research
state that there is no medical evidence to support the idea that annual boosters are necessary. Many vets are afraid of being
sued if they don't give the vaccines according to "accepted" protocols. Recent conventional medical research recommends reducing
those vaccines given to puppies and kittens dramatically as well.
What are the options?
At least, parents and pet owners should be given the opportunity to make an informed choice. They should be told
that while vaccinating may prevent acute disease, it will increase the risk of
allergies, arthritis, cancer, etc. Pet owners need to be informed that no evidence at
all exists to support the practice of "boostering" annually.
My personal opinion
is that homeopathy and proper nutrition can prevent disease better than vaccines without the dangers.
History is on my side.
In the late 1800s, homeopathy was extremely effective in treatment and prevention of cholera and typhus, whereas conventional
medicine was a dismal failure. Some things just don't change!
