Or is it something that’s a combination of things; something that’s not totally “black or white?”
INNATE IMMUNITY VS ACQUIRED IMMUNITY
Your immune system is a network of cells, organs, and glands in your body that fight invaders like viruses, bacteria, fungi, and other foreign matters (chemicals and pollens, etc.). 98-99% of disease-prevention is based on your innate, cellular, immune system. This includes epithelial barriers, mucous membranes, phagocytes, and natural killer cells. It also includes the functioning of your thymus, spleen, and bone marrow. You can think of this part of your immune system as your police force, your military, and your justice system all rolled into one.
Acquired immunity is a cellular memory. These cells, or antibodies, remember how to effectively fight off certain diseases. Antibodies are only about 2% of your immune response. This is what vaccine-producers and many physicians want you to focus on. This 2% of your immune system. Whereas the innate immune system is like your body’s military/police, the acquired immune system is like someone who sees something happening and calls the police to tell them. It’s your immune system narc. Which is good, but, you know, it’s not the whole picture.
Even Rudolph Virchow, the “Father of Modern Medicine” said “If I could live my life over again, I would devote it to proving that germs seek their natural habitat – diseased tissue – rather than being the cause of diseased tissue; mosquitoes seek the stagnant water but do not cause the water to become stagnant.”
“Had it not been for the mass selling of vaccines, Pasteur’s germ theory of disease would have collapsed into obscurity.” – E. Douglas Hume, author of Pasteur Exposed.
YOUR BODY – YOUR RIGHTS
As far as vaccinations go, I don’t think any authority figure – the government, your doctor, or your workplace – has the right to dogmatically tell you what you should or shouldn’t do with your health and the health of your family. With the facts properly laid out, you should be able to come up with a logical and emotionally-sound decision for yourself.
Luckily, in Texas, we can opt out of vaccines if we choose, but in three states, including California, you can’t conscientiously object to vaccines. But isn’t it our fundamental right as a patient – as a person – as an American – to decide whether or not to object or consent to a medical treatment?
After World War II, the Nuremberg Code was established to codify the rights of any person undergoing a medical procedure. Part of it reads: “The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.” The Declaration of Geneva, adopted by the World Medical Association in 1948 states that “I will not use my medical knowledge to violate human rights and civil liberties, even under threat.” One of the central tenants of the practice of medicine is “Informed Consent,” which roughly states that “when a sufficiently capacitated adult does not give …voluntary consent to intervention … the intervention is impermissible…”
But by mandating vaccines, we are losing our right to consent to the treatment. (By the way, all cases where nurses groups have taken hospital or clinic management to court to fight mandated vaccination, have won. So far, the legal precedent is on the side of the patient’s voluntary consent.) Mandatory vaccines are just plain un-American.
Some people argue “But, Nicole, if vaccines are bad, why isn’t that published on the front of every newspaper and heralded from every reporter?!”
This is why: news agencies need advertising dollars to stay in business. Pharmaceutical companies spend billions of dollars every year on advertising.
VACCINATION IS NOT IMMUNIZATION
How about when the vaccines are called “immunizations?” Except they’re not. Vaccines are temporary. Immunity means
Vaccines temporarily increase your antibodies to an organism. Even the CDC explanation form “how vaccines work,” they say “after a while, however, that immunity begins to wear off.” I’m sorry, did you say the immunity begins to wear off? Well, I haven’t been vaccinated for anything in over 20 years; shouldn’t I be worried about getting terribly sick? Seriously, though, there are hardly any studies that prove how long the “immunity” lasts for any one vaccine.
The thing about the flu (and measles and many other diseases that vaccine companies and the CDC think we need vaccinations for which multiplies every year): most people survive it. We have antibiotics (which you take only when, of course, you’re ABOUT TO DIE FROM A BACTERIAL INFECTION and no other time), hospitals, fancy medicines, and even qualified herbalists all over the world who can save you from infectious diseases. Hell, in a pinch, you may even use Dr. Google to know how to bring down a high fever. My point is, we live in a time and place where there are options.
The measles outbreak in California was 150 people – none of whom died. In Europe right now there’s a huge push to vaccinate, especially in rural Romania and Ukraine due to thousands of outbreaks of measles every year. There have been deaths, but only in subsects of people (gypsies) who don’t go to doctors. With modern medicine, death from measles is quite rare.
WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENS
The flu vaccine – touted as protection against all 4 varieties of the flu – has been shown to have an effectiveness rate of around 36%. Placebo is 35%.
Even if the effectiveness rate was 60%, which some news sources have reported, if this is effective “immunization” shouldn’t it be closer to 100%? Why’s it not working so often on so many people?
The thing is, there are 4 strains of flu virus, with immeasurable mutations within each of those 4 classes. These viruses are smart and are constantly changing and evolving. So what you’re getting vaccinated against may not be what you actually come into contact with.
Too much activity in your acquired immune system – think “immune system narcs” – causes your immune system to be on hyper-vigilant overdrive. This is when vaccines may be the underlying cause of autoimmune disorders.
All the while – I won’t say “ignoring” however – not addressing things to help your innate immune system function optimally.
It was critical for the new medical industry “to indoctrinate the public in the Western world with the belief that the salvation from all, especially physical ailments, lay outside the individual’s system and responsibility, because it was caused by external factors…and that chemical remedies (drugs) will keep him free from disease, independent of his own vigilant responsibility.” -Howard Hencke (“Germ Theory: A Deliberate Aberration”)
SO HOW DO WE STAY HEALTHY AND NOT GET THE FLU?
So why the rise of epidemic illness like Asiatic Flu, Swine Flu, etc.? “The viral (and other germs) diseases build up strength and resilience when it gets into weakened people or test animals. That’s why when our malnutrition is at its peak these diseases come in like a prairie fire in dry weather and build up their virulence to where they can mow down everybody. So that’s why we have these waves of invading epidemics all the time. Various forms of colds and flu and so forth.” -Dr. Royal Lee, 1933
So here are the top 3 things you can do to stay healthy during flu season, and really any time of the year.
- Whole food nutrition
- Eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables
- Stay away from vitamin C sourced from “ascorbic acid” (read the label); instead, use a vitamin C complex like Cataplex C or A-C from Standard Process
- Use Calcium Lactate or citrate. Low blood serum calcium has been linked with critical illness and diseases and the length of recovery time.
- Determine Zinc deficiency and supplement or change diet (eat less sugar and processed foods) as needed
- Vitamin D: sun exposure and a good quality fish oil
- Vitamin F: essential fatty acids (EFAs) also found in fish oil and nuts like brazil nuts, almonds, and sunflower seeds
- Hygiene and sanitation
- Most infectious disease death rates were already going down (see graph below), and drastically so, way before the introduction of vaccines. The reason? Clean water, regulated food industry, and sanitation.
- Stress management
- Keep your cortisol and adrenaline in check. Meditate, walk, drink water. Play and have fun. Keep a balance in your life.
