Vaccines Cause Chronic Immune System Dysregulation

Vaccines cause chronic immune system dysregulation. While vaccinations supposedly prevent childhood infectious disease, they do a far better job of causing many health issues increasingly prevalent in our society like autoimmune disease, asthma, allergies and cancer.

I have heard many times that vaccines cause problems with one’s immune system but never found a good explanation for exactly how this happens. Now I present to you the grim realities of vaccines and how they are likely causing more health issues, disease and deaths than they are preventing.

The Issues

  1. Did they really eradicate disease? A 1999 study from JAMA, the Journal of the American Medical Association, looked at the death rate from infectious disease since 1940. (1) What’s clear is that the death rate went down by 90% before vaccines were introduced. Other careful studies, such as that by J.B. and S.M. McKinlay, show that the vaccine-related diseases such as tuberculosis, diphtheria, smallpox and others were declining before vaccination came along. (10) So there’s a question of whether vaccines were actually responsible for eradicating disease. Even the CDC, the Centers for Disease Control, admits it was simply improved hygiene, improved sanitation like indoor plumbing and better nutrition that reduced disease. (14)
  2. Do they work? Whenever there’s an outbreak or an epidemic, at least half of the people who contract the disease were partially or fully vaccinated. In fact, the death rates in one study were twice as high for children that contracted the disease against which they were vaccinated. (3) There have been many outbreaks of whooping cough in recent years. Of the children that contracted the disease, estimates run as high as eighty percent that had been vaccinated against it. (6) Clearly some children are protected, while many are not. The strains in many vaccinations may no longer protect as new strains have emerged. (11)
  3. Vaccines contain neurotoxins. The adjuvants required in vaccines to stimulate the immune response include mercury, formaldehyde and aluminum, which are known neurotoxins. Preservative-free vaccines may not have mercury, but there has been no public outcry against formaldehyde, aluminum and many others, so these remain in vaccines as adjuvants. Additionally, a study from Kobe University, which showed that vaccines reliably induced autoimmunity, did not include any toxic adjuvants or preservatives such as mercury, aluminum, or formaldehyde normally used in vaccines. (13) This negates the more safely perceived practice of vaccinating with preservative-free vaccines.
  4. Vaccines cause chronic immune system dysregulation. The changing of our immune system is the most concerning issue in regards to vaccines. Our immune systems, after the changes induced by repeated vaccines, can lose the ability to respond properly in the face of illness, causing a specific set of diseases that have become more prevalent since the introduction of vaccines.  Epidemiological studies (statistical surveys) show poorer long-term health is more common among the vaccinated who survive without serious injury than children who are not vaccinated. (34, 8, 9) This is the issue we will focus on in this blog post.

How Our Immune System Works

Allow me to illustrate exactly how vaccines throw our immune systems off track. Humans have two different arms of our immune system. One is called cell-mediated immunity and the other is called humoral immunity. During the normal course of an infection, both arms of the immune system are involved.


Let’s take the chickenpox virus as an example. You get infected with the virus. Then you make a cell-mediated reaction and are sick for 2 weeks. Then your humoral immunity kicks in and you make antibodies so that if you are ever exposed to the chickenpox again, you will tag it and your immune system will destroy it before it infects your cells and you won’t become sick. That’s how the immune system works – both aspects are always involved.

Cell-mediated Immunity

Cell-mediated immunity entails the system of white blood cells that attack if you unfortunately pick up a virus. And because you’ve never encountered this virus before, the virus will infect, or get inside, different bodily cells. For instance, it will infect the cells of your respiratory tract. Now your white blood cells attack these infected cells and kill them. This whole process releases substances called cytokines, which produce the ill effects you feel when you get sick.

What we call being sick – fever, flu, mucus, cough, rash, etcetera is because of our cell-mediated immune system. The virus does not create the symptoms you experience; they are compliments of your immune system. This is demonstrated clearly when you suppress somebody’s cell-mediated immune system with steroid drugs like prednisone and then infect them with a virus. They don’t get ‘sick.’ They might even die from the infection, but they won’t get what we normally refer to as sick.

On the other hand, if you give somebody the chemicals (cytokines, etc.) of their cell-mediated system, you can stimulate a cell-mediated immune response without any infection at all – no virus, no bacteria, no nothing. You merely stimulate their cell-mediated immune system and they get sick. They have a cough, fever, rash and mucus and all the rest. So that which we call being sick is a cell-mediated response.

You may not want to go around boasting how you never get sick. This is very likely because your cell-mediated immunity is repressed so that you don’t release cytokines and then suffer with colds and flus. However, this doesn’t mean that you don’t have these viruses in your body causing harm. It just means your immune system and body are too depleted, overwhelmed and tired to respond.

This is exactly what is happening when individuals receive too many vaccinations, which at some point represses their cell-mediated immunity and their body’s ability to respond to new invaders. They then become susceptible to countless diseases.

Humoral Immunity

After your cell-mediated immune system clears a pathogen, your humoral immunity – the antibody system – remembers what happened. In about 4 to 6 weeks you have your very own immunity to the pathogen in question. Next time you are exposed to the same pathogen, you can manufacture antibodies in your defense. You clear the cold before it infects your cells. The cell-mediated immune system never needs to get involved and you don’t get sick.

There has never been until the 1940’s a situation where you have the stimulation of one part of the immune system without the other. That’s what happens with vaccines – the whole point of a vaccine is to stimulate the humoral immunity. The humoral antibodies are stimulated without a prior cell-mediated response.

This type of unnatural stimulation of our immune system is unprecedented. When you get the chickenpox vaccine, the whole point is to stimulate antibodies. If a vaccine stimulated a cell-mediated response, parents would likely not be as motivated to get their kids vaccinated. So by definition, a vaccination program is the attempt to stimulate the antibodies without a cell-mediated response.

Disease Caused by Vaccines

When people are subject to repeated vaccines, they predictably simulate a situation of suppressed cell-mediated immunity and heightened antibody responses. Why? Because that’s the goal of vaccination. If you make a list of the diseases that are characterized by suppressed cell-mediated immunity and heightened humoral immunity, you’re talking health conditions like asthma, allergies, eczema and autoimmune diseases including Crohn’s, Vitiligo, Multiple Sclerosis, Sjogren’s syndrome, Hashimoto’s, etcetera.

We cannot and will not eradicate all disease with vaccines. We have merely traded acute illnesses from which most recover for chronic illnesses for which modern medicine has no cure.

Vaccination risks

Ask your grandparents or parents how many children did they know in 1940’s or ’50’s who had allergies, and the answer is basically none. Now, it’s anywhere from 20 to 40% of children have some sort of chronic illness. Fifteen percent of children suffer from asthma. (2) Something is wrong with this picture.

So how did we get here? Many of today’s chronic diseases are characterized by excessive antibody production. How did we get that? Well that was the point of the vaccination program. That’s the goal. Why would you expect anything else to happen? Many of you may respond, “This has never been proven.”

Actually, the fact that vaccines produce more illness has been proven. Longitudinal survey studies comparing the health of vaccinated versus unvaccinated children have repeatedly shown statistically significant vaccinosis – illness produced in an individual after receiving a vaccine. In a 1997 study in New Zealand, 1265 children were surveyed. Twenty-three percent of the vaccinated children experienced asthma and thirty percent suffered from allergies, while the unvaccinated children did not have a single incident of these illnesses. (8) In a 2004 British Study of 30,000 children, vaccinated children had a 5.04 increased risk of asthma, while the unvaccinated only had a .36 percent prevalence. (9) In a 2011 German Study of 8000 children, vaccinated children had at least two to five times more diseases and disorders than unvaccinated children.

In patients with an autoimmune disorder, the immune system can’t tell the difference between healthy body tissue and antigens that need to be attacked. The result is an immune response that destroys normal body tissues. This response is a hypersensitivity reaction similar to the response in allergic conditions. Vaccinations have been shown to induce autoimmune disorders.

Interestingly, there’s a study out of Kobe University in Japan where they took mice and put them on a rigorous vaccination program. They wanted to see if they could develop excessive antibodies as seen in autoimmune disease. And they found that at a certain threshold they could consistently and reliably induce autoimmune disease by simply giving enough vaccinations. (13)

The Kobe University study authors concluded:

Systemic autoimmunity appears to be the inevitable consequence of over-stimulating the host’s immune ‘system’ by repeated immunization with antigen to the levels that surpass the system’s self-organize criticality.

In other words, they found that, not only is vaccination a possible or even probable cause of autoimmune disorders, but that chronic diseases are the inevitable result of vaccinations!

This study was done with mice. This begs the question, ‘Has this been replicated in humans?’ Unequivocally yes. This experiment has been done and it’s called the last 70 years.

Autoimmune diseases have increased in quantity and variety as the number of vaccinations has increased over the last 70 years. There are over 100 autoimmune diseases. Studies with monogenetic twins have revealed that genetic influences only account for 25–40% of the disease risk making environmental influences the predominant factors. (7) Regardless of genetic vulnerability, one’s environment determines whether genes for autoimmunity are expressed.

There is a reason the fastest growing subset of diseases in the US and the world are autoimmune diseases. This is because we’re producing them. It’s a growth industry. As vaccines have increased in number, so have the number of cases of autoimmune disease.

Currently, there are 38 vaccines on the recommended schedule, with even more in some US states. There are many more vaccines in development. I predict a worsening epidemic of allergies, asthma, autoimmune and other diseases caused by an atrophy of the cell-mediated immune response as more vaccines are added to the vaccine schedule. We are only seeing the tip of the iceberg with vaccine-induced disease.

Vaccinate or Not Vaccinate?

Children do die of vaccine-preventable diseases. However, many vaccinated children acquire the very diseases against which they are vaccinated. But many millions also suffer and die later in life due to the diseases vaccine induce by dysregulating the immune system. What to do? You must do a cost-benefit analysis and risk assessment for you personally as an individual and for your family.

Some mothers could never live with themselves if their child died of a preventable disease, which does happen. Most don’t know or believe that vaccines can cause disease in the future for their child. Some parents are highly risk averse and must vaccinate due to this facet of their personality. Others operate out of fear, are pressured by their pediatrician or do not understand that they can get a vaccination exemption. Everyone is different, as are his or her reasons to vaccinate or not.

In making your decision, you have to think of the potential of the vaccine efficacy versus the risk of injecting your child with a known neurotoxin and an immune-shifting drug. There’s not a question about whether that’s going to happen – it does happen. You cannot repeatedly vaccinate somebody and not expect a change in their immune system. Given these facts, you have to decide which makes more sense to you.

I think it’s a rational decision for somebody to say, “Yes I know that giving my child a chickenpox vaccine will shift them more towards allergies, autoimmune disease and even cancer. I know it will create some neurotoxicity, but I’m not willing to live with the chance of them getting chickenpox.” Fine. What I don’t like is “Do the vaccine, they work great, there’s no downside.” This is a fairytale.

I personally see the ever-increasing risk of autoimmune disease (5-8 in 100), allergies (1 in 10), asthma (8 in 100) and cancer (1 in 2-3) as far more prevalent diseases in our society and the bigger threat against which I want to protect my child. So, I am taking steps against these threats by not vaccinating. I am willing to accept the far far smaller risk of my child contracting an infectious disease against which vaccines supposedly aim to eradicate. Others are not. You have to make this decision for yourself.

Vaccines do Damage

You can always choose to vaccinate, but you can never undo once you have vaccinated. Prior to educating myself about vaccines, I proceeded with the full vaccination schedule until my daughter was 18 months old. She was fine until one year of age. After this point, she hardly progressed in her speech. She was finally diagnosed with mild autism at 3 years old. I believe her brain injury to be caused in part by vaccines. I don’t believe vaccines by themselves cause autism – it has multifactorial causes – but in vulnerable children, vaccines can be the straw that broke the camel’s back. They can do damage in vulnerable populations.

In vulnerable children, vaccines cause autism, seizures, mental retardation and so many other health issues. One must also take into account the fact that for every severe reaction, vaccine provoke less acute effects like confusion, language difficulties, memory issues, irritability, mood alterations, combativeness, difficulty concentrating and behavioral problems. (12). This sounds very much like ADD and ADHD, which are sweeping the child population in epidemic proportions.

The larger issue is that almost no one knows if their child is a member of this vulnerable population. Perhaps they know if their child is very sickly or already has a disease. This I would consider amongst the vulnerable population. Most symptoms of learning delays and other signs do not manifest until a child is around 2-3 years old. By this time a child has typically received a large proportion of vaccines.

If you do choose to vaccinate, I think a great strategy is to delay vaccination in order to determine if your child is, in fact, a candidate for vaccination. One study showed that children who delayed immunizations had less of a shift in their immune systems. (5) The damage at least can be minimized. Certainly, if your child suffers from illness, allergies, compromised immunity or is ill, you should seriously reconsider giving vaccinations.

Thankfully, my daughter is making a quick recovery. She now is detoxing aluminum on her hair tests (I have her on a Mineral Power program). Some of this certainly is from vaccines, but not all. Needless to say, I will not be giving her another vaccination. I do not consider her a candidate for them given her former diagnosis of mild autism. I am hoping that since she received so few vaccinations that she will not develop chronic immune system dysregulation, which can result in autoimmune, cancer or allergies in the future. But you never know…

If you Must Vaccinate

This was reprinted from Nourishing Traditions of Baby and Childcare by Sally Fallon Morell and Dr. Thomas Cowan. For details on why these are wise suggestions, I recommend reading this wonderful baby book.

  • Delay vaccinations until age two.
  • Give no more than one vaccine every six months.
  • Never give more than one vaccine at a time. This means avoid the 3 in 1 vaccines and opt for single vaccines.
  • Avoid live virus vaccines.
  • Never give a vaccination to a sick child. Vaccines are much more dangerous if your child has a compromised immune system.
  • Avoid vaccines containing thimerisal, which is 50% mercury. Single-vial vaccines are more likely to be thimerisal free. Avoid flu shots from community vials dispensed at hospitals or drug stores, which usually contain thimerisal.
  • Supplement with extra cod liver oil, vitamin C, B12 and sulfur-rich foods such as liver and egg yolk before each shot. This will protect your child as these nutrients play a key role in regulating the immune response.

Vaccine Resources

Concerned parents spend a significant amount of time researching the issue of vaccines before deciding whether or not to proceed with the government recommended immunization schedule. This process can be incredibly frustrating because there is so much conflicting information. Many health care practitioners and family members consider you crazy is you even toy with the idea of not vaccinating. I know. I was this person at one time.

I used to flatly consider parents who did not vaccinate to be child murderers. I worshipped the miracles of modern medicine and thought anyone that didn’t vaccinate was out of their minds and clearly endangering their child. Yet, I had done no research to back up my passionate opinion. It has taken me years and lots of reading to formulate the ideas and conclusions contained in this article.

Beyond this post, I thought it would be helpful to pass along a list of references that I recommend. They are a good place to start building a foundation of knowledge regarding the vaccine controversy rather than blindly following your pediatrician’s advice, which will almost always be to vaccinate.

    I agree with the information re autoimmune diseases. My oldest child, now 22 has Raynauds, an autoimmune disorder. She developed this within a couple of weeks of having her final shot just prior to entering high school. I think it was the Dtap. She was perfectly healthy prior and never had health issues.

    I was just beginning to awaken to the danger of vaccines and thought, well… she’s had all her shots ’til now. I didn’t want to rock the boat. Now I believe this autoimmune problem is due to her shot.

    My daughter also developed a sort of panic-attack breathing issue right after. Don’t know if it’s related too.

    Hoping my kids will realize the dangers when it comes time for them to vaccinate their children.

    • I’m really sorry you had this outcome. The breathing issue can also be related. Vaccines can cause any imaginable ailment – we’re all just affected differently. Anxiety can be from heavy metal toxicity, too. All I can say is have her do some infrared sauna therapy to detox metals and chemicals. It takes a couple years of use, but it’s quite effective.

      Autoimmunity is also from imbalanced gut flora, which can be caused from mercury in vaccines. Mercury is still used in some vaccines, mainly the flu shot. And what does mercury do? Kill microbes. But lots of things negatively impact our gut microbes. Some now think that you must have a leaky gut to have autoimmunity. Try reading Gut and Psychology Syndrome by Natasha Campbell McBride. I had a new podcast going up tomorrow. Called An Epidemic of Absence with Moises Velasquez-Manoff. Give that a listen. 🙂

  • Absolutely! This article is fantastic, thanks for the journal links at the end.

    My oldest son is vaccine injured:( asthma, allergies, arthritis. 12 years old and he has to crawl sometimes his legs hurt so bad:( People just don’t get it. They say there is no evidence and they get so irate over the fact that I choose to not vax our 4 children now. I know every time our oldest got vaccinated he got very ill and regressed developmentally…even having an afebrile seizure at his 6 month shots. I was naive and I believed them saying there was no connection until one day I realized he was really sick and I started to question what was happening. After 9 years without any vaccines he is starting to heal, but he will never have an intact and healthy immune system. I pray that this road doesn’t lead to MS, Lupus, etc.

    There isn’t a doubt in my mind that vaccines have left my son damaged for life. I wish more people would wake up and we could start having serious discussions about this instead of people attacking other people and calling us selfish and stupid for choosing to not vaccinate:(

    • I completely understand Kelly. I believe my own daughter to have been vaccine injured. We’re not vaccinating any more and she is progressing and talking quite nicely now, but still behind the curve. I wrote this article with the hopes that it could help people begin thinking about the risks of vaccines instead of living in a fantasy that they have no side effects or downsides.

  • Sal

    Thank you for mentioning Sjogren’s disease which hardly anyone has heard of unless you’ve been diagnosed with it. It is not just an eyes and mouth problem as most doctors will have you believe. It is an horrific illness that can affect ALL secretions in the body, it is a systemic connective tissue disorder, it leaves you sufferring day and night, but on the outside you look ok so no one will ever understand what horror you are going through. I was diagnosed when already at stage three, that’s when you go from HYPERgammaglobulinemia to HYPOgammaglobulinemia, ie immunodeficiencies and you system is wide open to countless viruses and infections and cancer. I have always said autoimmune, part of ASD, is mostly caused by vaccines, and without going into detail, mine very obviously was. Far better to take your chance with a childhood disease and treat homeopathically than to poison your child permanently and leave them to suffer gradually and horribly for the rest of their lives. There are absolutely NO benefits from vaccines except to the manufacturers who profit hugely from our suffering.

    • Hi Sal! I’m sorry you’re suffering from this terrible disease. I’ve had very good results healing clients with autoimmune disease with Nutritional Balancing. One client had her vitiligo (another autoimmune disorder) disappear! It’s worth a shot since medicine doesn’t offer any kind of healing. You simply need to feed, calm and heal your immune system so that it stops attacking your body. Learn more about it here:

  • Betsy T

    This is a wonderful article, very thorough and educational. I agree with most of it.

    Through my own research and understanding of the physiology of the body, I don’t believe that vaccines prevent anything. There is absolutely no way to prove that it was ‘vaccine induced immunity’ or the child’s own ‘natural immunity’ that kept the child from ‘getting sick’ if exposed. I do not believe that a child has no immune capabilities unless vaccinated. Many unvaccinated people never ‘get the disease’, yet are exposed – that is Natural Immunity at work.

    I have a 39 year old daughter who has had Crohn’s since she was 16, she has no colon, and gets Remicade every 8 weeks to help with the joint pain. I have come to the conclusion that (if a cause must be known) this is from not being breastfed at all and vaccination injury to her gut.

    Again, kudos on an article well done. I am certainly sharing.

  • Elaine

    Thank you so very much for writing this very informative and articulate post. Now, whenever people condescendingly ask me why I don’t vaccinate my kids, I don’t have to blankly stare back at them while frantically trying to scan my brain for just the right response. And unlike so many other anti-vax posts and articles, you actually had footnotes (!) and respectable sources. Thanks again and keep up the great work! I had never heard of your webpage until today, and I wasted no time in liking it immediately on Facebook 😉

  • Kayla Robson

    Auto immune disease and asthma may well be increasing in prevalence, but this may be caused by any number of factors; the pesticides on our crops, the hormones in your chicken or the food colouring in your fruit loops. The link between the increasing trend and vaccines is very loosely connected in this article.
    The individuals who don’t vaccinate are generally protected by heard immunity. The chance is small but the cost could be great. It is a dangerous game to play. If I didn’t vaccinate my child, I would certainly not encourage others to do the same, as their vaccination is what is protecting the unvaccinated.
    Vaccines have all but irradiated a large number of deadly diseases, which didn’t just cause shortness of breath, but death! Current generations have been so fortunate because of the work of our parents and grandparents. How quickly we forget!
    Be wary of individuals who write articles with ‘I think’ – when thoughts are written in an article like this people often confuse thoughts with facts.

    • luvmygrndhg

      Have you been tested for antibodies? When was the last time you had booster shots for the vaccines you had as a child? Chances are that you don’t have immunity to many of the diseases you were vaccinated against. Scientists know that the effects of vaccines don’t last forever, some wear off as early as 5 years after the last dose. So many teens and adults are walking around thinking they are “protected” but they are not. And so about 50% of the population has no immunity from vaccines….Herd immunity is a myth. Also in a lot of cases, such as the whooping cough, a vaccinated person can be an asymptomatic carrier and infect others. Whereas a person who is unvaccinated and contracts the disease knows to isolate themselves, a vaccinated person who is infected with the disease can spread it to the rest of the herd unwittingly.

      • This is a good point. Herd immunity is an impossible fairytale that will never happen. I don’t know a single adult that is getting their booster shots for the childhood vaccinations they received, much less the new vaccinations that have come onto the market. Anyone who makes the claim that unvaccinated children are putting vaccinated children at risk have clearly not researched the vaccine issue because most adults no longer have immunity to the diseases against which we vaccinate children.

  • Adriana Perosi

    Hi, I have already leave this message above, but I do not know who receives it! I am from Buenos Aires, Argentina. A CLL (Chronic Lymphoc. Leukemia) has been triggered after my applying the flu shot two years ago, in 2011 (it coincided with the moment the Lab was sold and a change in the formula of the vaccine was approved by the ANMAT –Governmental body in Argentina regulating medicines and food, as the FDA does in the USA. Even more, I called the lab and went to the ANMAT to notify my case. Of course, in the ANMAT it was suggested that “there were many interests in this industry, that it was too difficult to reach the top levels, and that it was independent from what “I” would like to start…” (A lawsuit???). Before the moment the shot was applied to me, during all my life, all my clinical tests, Rx, etc. were normal (of course, leukocytes and lymphocytes, included).
    Fortunately, I need no treatment (at least, up to now). But it was surprising how my whole body exploded, NODES INCLUDED, after 10 or 15 days the H1N1 was applied! Even more, I consulted with a physician because I thought of a breast cancer… since the first node that appeared was under my axila (coincidently, the one of the same arm where the vaccine was applied). Now, I am being treated at the Academia Nacional de Medicina (de Buenos Aires), I mean, I go there to be controlled, periodically, with blood tests. DO YOU HAPPEN TO KNOW ANY ANTECEDENT of THIS? DO YOU KNOW IF I CAN CLAIM THE LAB AND WHAT WOULD I NEED OR HOW COULD I PROVE IT? Thanks for your response. I am anxious because, although I need no treatment, I depend on my own, and if a treatment were needed I do not know what I could live on! Besides, I am an independent worker (professional) and it is too distressing to know that I should have to control with clinical analysis, the lesser…, lifelong! Regards, Adriana

    • I’m so sorry you are dealing with this. Unfortunately, any claim you could make would very difficult to prove. Bigpharma has unlimited resources and crushes cases like this. Very few sue successfully. In the US claims are paid for by the government as BigPharma enjoys complete immunity from claims. Not sure how your country handles cases against pharmaceutical companies.

      The best thing I can offer you is a way to detox your body. it will improve your health , though there are no guarantees for your condition. But if you remove toxins from the body, you have a much better chance of recovery. Read more about my program called nutritional Balancing here:

      I would like to contact with you Adriana. I am medical doctor – hematologist and I live in Poland. I work in Hematology and Bone Marrow Transplantation Department of Medical University. I treat many patients suffering from CLL and other hematological malignancies. I am interesting at connections between CLL/NHL developing and vaccinations.

  • Wouter

    This made me laugh like hell! Vaccination are good for humanity and not taking them makes all of humanity vulnerable because some hippies, with no brains think that vaccinations are ‘bad’ and can cause cancer, I want to say the b-word but it’s not bad enough for people like this. If you all go to heaven, good, go and infect people in heaven. I rather burn in hell but be vaccinated agains polio and smallpox. So if you could just f-off and run under a train. Humanity thanks you for making us laugh every day, but now it’s time to die for you.

    • Linda

      When I read ignorant statements like this, I can’t “laugh like hell”. Instead, I feel sorry for all of the children who suffer because their parents blindly follow their doctors who insist that vaccines are perfectly safe, when they clearly are not. All you have to do is read any vaccine information pamphlet to see all of the bad side effects they can cause, including death.

  • D

    Wendy, do you have any actual medical background? Do you honestly think that hundreds of thousands of pediatricians, GPs, ARNPs, PAs, etc went through years of higher education and training would recommend vaccinating their patients if they were not shown to be effective and were shown to cause detrimental harm? The fact is, while you may know how to write a research paper, you do not have the clinical background, training and knowledge to preach to the masses not to vaccinate their children. I would hate to think someone decided to ignore their doctor, and not vaccinate their children because of a blog post by a nutritionist. Just talk to the increasing numbers of parents losing their infants to whooping cough. Better yet, drag yourself through medical school and have the experience of treating such a case- it’s a horrific, preventable situation.

    • Actually, the reason children are dying from whooping cough is because there’s new strain called Bortadella against which the current vaccination does not protect. So, it has nothing to do with unvaccinated populations. 80% of kids that acquire whooping cough have been partially or fully vaccinated.

      Frankly, most of my research came straight from an MD, Dr. Thomas Cowan and his book The Nourishing Traditions Book of Baby and Childcare. You don’t need a medical degree to understand how vaccines work in the body or how the immune system works. Doctors and pediatricians do vaccinations because they robotically do what they are taught in medical school, many without questioning it. For pediatricians, half their income is from performing vaccinations. So, you have to question whether than can be completely objective in their recommendations to vaccinate. Additionally, most of the medical system is controlled by pharmaceutical companies, thought I believe their control is beginning to wan with new laws and awareness. This is why people are looking elsewhere for health advice.

      If you read my article carefully, I explicitly say that there is risk in vaccinating and risk in not vaccinating. I’m not telling people NOT to vaccinate. I’m making a case that vaccines have downsides and that every person must carefully weight the risks of vaccinating and not vaccinating prior to making this life-changing decision. Children do die, become permanently disabled or develop behavioral and learning disabilities after receiving vaccinations, not to mention the permanent issues with their immune system that leaves them susceptible to other diseases. To think that they have no downside is a fairytale.

        my son was 3 going on 4 yrs old his doctor told me to get the swine flu injections 2009-2010 he was diagnosed with ADEM ,he became very ill ,he was viomting headaches ,3 weeks later he couldn’t walk.I was back and froth to the doctor ,nobody wanted to help him or me ,I became so depressed .I told every doctor that the swine flu injection did this to him ,he had asthma now he has ADD ODD ADHD A PHYSICAL DISABILITY ,ADEM .Hes had 7 MRI,S ,lots of blood taken, eeg s ,spinal tap .now hes 8 yrs the neourglist thinks he has MS .I will never put another injection into his body again.

        • I’m so very sorry to hear this. This is just a heartbreaking story, of which I have heard many. My OBGYN told me to get the swine flu injection when I was pregnant. I got the swine flu AND the regular flu shot at the same time when I was pregnant. It makes me cringe now at the thought of putting that useless poison in my body when I was pregnant. I can’t help but feel this may have contributed to my daughter’s neurological issues.

          My daughter was progressing quite nicely in her speech until she began getting vaccinated at 6 months. At one year old she stopped progressing and actually regressed. She no longer knew words she once knew. My daughter’s injuries weren’t as devastating as yours but it is sad that we are told that a few must be sacrificed to ‘save’ the masses when people dismissively refer to the injuries and death children suffer to vaccinate the masses. Millions of children are injured, as yours was with a devastating effects, and on very subtle levels with learning and speech delays, ADD, etc, the likes of which have reached epidemic proportions.

    Thank you for this well researched and rational point of view. There are crazies on both sides, so it’s nice to see logic and evidence-based reasoning.

    I was wondering if you could elaborate on the comment about a person not bragging that he/she never gets sick because it could indicate a suppressed immune system. I don’t often get sick, maybe once a year, and I treat it homeopathically, recovering in 3-4 days. I regularly eat organic/non-GMO and avoid refined sugars. How can I determine if I just have a really good immune system vs a suppressed one?


    • If you get sick once a year that’s a good indication that your immune system is not suppressed. I only worry when I have a client say they haven’t been sick in years and they clearly have adrenal fatigue, thyroid issues and mineral deficiencies. These are clear indicators that the immune system could be suppressed. The immune system needs good food and minerals to function. When the adrenals and thyroid are not working we know the body’s other systems have slowed and are not working optimally. There is really no test that you can do to check the immune system’s health, only general indicators and illnesses. I use hair mineral analysis specifically from Analytical Research Laboratories, which can indicate general adrenal and thyroid health. it also shows mineral deficiencies. I know when someone has too many mineral deficiencies that their immune system is in poor health.

    I think you have done a lot of research and done made many good points. I have issues with a few things though. 1. Research doesn’t prove things. It can support theories but it doesn’t prove them. 2. The fact that one thing happens after another does not mean that the first thing caused the second. Their are so many other aspects in life and completely controlling for them is impossible. Even randomized and controlled trials have a certain amount of error associated with them. 3. Since most children are vaccinated, attributing nearly anything bad that happens afterward to the vaccination will inherently make it impossible to test the theory. It’s like saying that eating breakfast causes car wrecks. Sure most people who get in an accident probably had breakfast but so did most other people. And an increasing number of wrecks probably doesn’t have much to do with breakfast.

    Anyways, thanks for the thought provoking piece and the research you found. You make a good case for correlation among the factors and the need for more good research on the topic.

    • Thank you for those insights. You are quite right. Research does not prove things. It merely shows correlations and perhaps points to causation. I do take these things into account, as did the researchers in the studies I cited.

      I’m living proof that vaccines cause autoimmune disease, so you can take that so-called reasoning of yours and ram it into a tree head first.
      But personal experiences aside, allow me to rip apart your “solid” argument here.

      Your first point is this: “Research doesn’t prove things.”

      Research has to be interpreted. Either the data supports a theory or not. With that said, the author’s data appears to support her points. Therefore, your comment is irrelevant. She wasn’t talking about the philosophy of science. Instead, she was talking about how the data supports her points. Get it?

      Your second point is this: “The fact that one thing happens after another does not mean that the first thing caused the second.”

      This is an oversimplification of the issue. Your example is insulting. She pointed out quite clearly the plausible connections between vaccines and auto-immune problems and why. To turn around and say what you said and treat it as a fair comparison is absolute bullocks. With the same logic you used I could say that you don’t have a brain because my cat farted. It seems every time my cat farts, I see comments like yours. Therefore, you have no brain. Now let’s extend that same stupid logic and say anything that uses an “A before B” scenario is therefore as stupid as my cat fart logic. Get it?

      Your third point is this: “Since most children are vaccinated, attributing nearly anything bad that happens afterward to the vaccination will inherently make it impossible to test the theory.”
      Interesting. You repeated yourself. Your third point is your second point. Therefore, refer to my last comment. Bye.

    Great article. People need to understand that the simple fact of immunization science being very effective does not negate the toxic payload in each vaccine.

    • Thank you!! This is a very important point. there are other ways to improve immunity.

  • I’m very sorry to hear that Lorraine. I can’t tell you how many stories like yours I have heard. We don’t need to get vaccines. We need to strengthen and mineralize our bodies and eat a healthy diet so that our immune system has the strength to fight off illness. No one can do that job for us. Any short cuts like vaccines have their cost and downsides.

    Great great article . I loved the way you explained the 2 sides of the immune system. It really spoke to me as I’ve dealt with cancer, hashimotos and alergies – but I never get ‘ill’ or take time off work even though I spend my time in classrooms surrounded by sneezing students!

    I’ve eaten clean for a few years now – but now I’m optimising my Vitamin D with lab work, starting to take moducare and done a hair mineral analysis to try to find the underlying cause – infections/heavy metals etc. Its been years of alternative exploration, but it seems I’m finally getting to the root.

    What other resources do you recommend for learning about immune balance?Thanks, Joe
