Vaccination and trusting ‘authorities’??

I get so many articles detailing ongoing research about the devastating side effects and life long immune problems being created by our ever-increasing onslaught of vaccinations. Since I first studied the vaccination issues in 1984, when pregnant with our  daughter, I get daily confirmation that we made the right decision to question the status quo.

Whether it is injecting multiple toxins directly into the blood stream of unsuspecting infants, whose immune systems and brains are not yet fully developed, or forcing seniors with already weakened systems into adding this toxic burden to their drug laden bodies, it is nothing short of criminal. Big pharma vaccine producers previously paid billions in fines & lawsuits, but have since lobbied government not only to promote their dangerous goods, but then to provide legal immunity for their damages. This article tells of one couple’s enlightenment:

Vaccination: Should We Trust the Authorities? 

I have many other articles and references in  Vaccine archives, along with tips to naturally exercise and develop a healthy natural immune system.

My website provides a whole list of Vaccine References, where you can continue your own research, and make an EDUCATED decision, not one based on fear and coercion.

Please contact the author if you wish to get you or your family onto a HEALTH PROGRAM and learn how to take control of your own health.

IF you have already subjected yourself or your family to vaccines, do not beat yourself up – this is what you were told to do, and you trusted, right? There ARE natural solutions to rebuild your immune system and regain health.

Since 1974, I have not found a condition yet that could not be treated naturally, at least as well, and most of us think better, than any drug based approach. This includes pneumonia, rashes, measles, whooping cough, bronchitis, cancer, diabetes, gout, arthritis, burns, puncture wounds, and the usual colds & flus, you name it.

Giving the body the tools to heal itself is what works!

Herbs ARE Effective – Science Recognizes 5000+ Years History

Below are 3 quotes from learned people that give us food for thought about keeping an open mind and looking outside the box on many “accepted” ideas:

“This ‘telephone’ has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a means of communication. The device is inherently of no value to us.” Western Union internal memo, 1876

“I think there is world market for maybe five computers” -Thomas Watson, chairman of IBM, 1943

640K ought to be enough for anybody.” – Bill Gates, 1981

It is as hard to believe that these statements were taken seriously,  as it that people once believed that the world was flat. Or that rampant cell growth, aka cancer,  can only be treated with surgery, chemical poisons or radiation. This gives you some idea why the title of Lorene Benoit’s book on healing is named:  The Paw Paw Program – A “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally.

Having  been in the natural health field since 1974, and seriously using herbs since 1980, it is very heartening to see science supporting traditional healing more every day. Not that I need the proof, having seen life changing results with natural healing for thousands of people,  but this may help move the public toward a better understanding of why herbal healing is still around after more than 5000 years. And why it is important to look outside the box and learn to take more control of our own health for a healthier, happier life!

New research from Thailand indicates curcumin may be as effective as ibuprofen in relieving osteoarthritis pain.      

In a study involving 367 patients (mean age 60 years) with knee osteoarthritis, subjects were randomized into two groups who received either ibuprofen (1,200 mg/day) or a turmeric extract (75-85% total curcuminoids, 1,500 mg/day) for four weeks. Treatment efficacy was assessed via the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC®) total, WOMAC pain, WOMAC stiffness and WOMAC function scores.

Comparison of WOMAC scores showed significant improvement from baseline in both the ibuprofen and curcumin groups, with no significant difference between the two groups. While both treatments were generally well tolerated, there were fewer reports of adverse gastrointestinal side-effects in the curcumin group. These findings are consistent with previous research showing curcumin to be similar or more effective than ibuprofen in efficacy and much safer for all forms of inflammation.

The Curcumin C3 Complex® is highly regarded in the clinical literature for consistency, quality and integrity of the three main antioxidant and protective compounds found in turmeric root, collectively known as curcuminoids. It has the been the clinical trial material of choice for a significant number of research studies investigating its protective, antioxidant and inflammation-mediating effects.


Stress is far worse for cardiovascular health than cholesterol will ever be

Dr. Stephen Sinatra ( no, not Frank) , MD, FACN tells us clearly shows that emotions have a tremendous effect on our physical health. He lists five of the most common negative emotions: Anger, Sadness, Heartbreak, Stress  and Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). I love that last one – anytime enough people have similar challenges, an new “disorder” is created, usually to promote a new drug to treat the new disorder.

What these 5 stressful emotions have in common is that they all produce hormones such as cortisol, adrenaline and nor-adrenaline. Among other effects, these hormones  thicken the blood, and create inflammation. So instead of ingesting rat poison, aka blood thinners, consider reducing these negative emotions and supplementing your diet with  a good quality Stress Formula (CA)/ Nutri Calm (US), which contain both herbs and B Vitamins. Besides helping reduce the physical effects of stress, this formula  also helps lower homocysteine levels related to Cardiovascular health.

Stress related emotions also decrease essential mineral such as Potassium  and Magnesium, two essential minerals which help regulate heart beat and kidney output. Chinese Mineral Chi Tonic is one of the best synergistic formulas to help balance these minerals AND deal with stress, while increasing our vital energy.

Drugs accomplish nothing long-term to reducing stress, but there are many things you can incorporate into your life that will. Read how Dr. Bruce Lipton has shown how just one emotion such as love can physically change our genetic fate.

One simple exercise to begin today is the Gratitude Attitude – a recent Harvard study stated that saying 3 specific things per day for which you are grateful have been shown to decrease our metabolic age by 10 years in only 21 days! Other tips for emotional healing are included in Chapter 6 of Lorene Benoit’s book: The Paw Paw Program – The “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally.


Ten Scientific Studies Prove that Genetically Modified Food Can Be Harmful To Human Health

The data “clearly underlines adverse impacts on kidneys and liver, two of our major detoxifying organs, as well as different levels of damages to heart, adrenal glands, spleen and haematopoietic system,” reported Gilles-Eric Séralini, a molecular biologist at the University of Caen.

Human health, of course, is of primary import to us, but ecological effects are also in play. Ninety-nine percent of GMO crops either tolerate or produce insecticides. This may be the reason we see bee colony collapse and massive butterfly deaths.  If GMOs are wiping out earth’s pollinators, they are far more disastrous than the threat they pose to humans and other mammals.



Vitamin C works on chicken pox, measles, polio – and without harmful side effects.

Dr. Frederick Klenner graduated from Duke University School of Medicine in 1936. In the “Clinical Guide to the Use of Vitamin C”, Dr. Lendon H. Smith outlines numerous cases on how Dr. Klenner quickly cured a variety of viral diseases by the use of intravenous vitamin C.

He reports of a ten month old baby with high fever, watery nose, dry cough, red eyes and rash characteristic of measles. Dr Klenner gave the baby 1,000 milligrams (mg) of vitamin C every four hours and the temperature dropped, the cough stopped and the rash disappeared.

Another eight-year-old child with measles developed encephalitis, became stuporous and responded only to pain. He quickly cured the child by both intravenous and oral vitamin C.

A 23 year old man with mumps developed swollen testicles, the size of tennis balls, along with overwhelming pain. After 1,000 mg of intravenous vitamin C the pain subsided. During the next 24 hours he was given 2,000 mg of intravenous C every two hours. His fever returned to normal in 36 hours and he was up and about in 60 hours.

Dr. Lendon Smith describes how Klenner discovered that intravenous C could also quickly dry up chicken pox lesions and subdue viral hepatitis.

But Dr. Klenner’s most important study involved the great polio epidemic of 1948-50. He successfully treated 60 polio victims using intravenous doses of vitamin C, up to 200,000 mg every 12 hours for four days. None developed paralysis. He soon learned that the sicker the patient the higher the dose required.

So we need to ask ourselves:

  • are we prepared to accept age old remedies that are now being proven by “science”, and even those that have stood the test of millennium but may never get funded by big pharma to prove they work?
  • how simple and inexpensive ate these remedies  compared to the cost and damaging side effects of pharmaceuticals and mass vaccination with toxic ingredients?
  • what can we do to keep our immune systems strong so that we do not offer ourselves as a host to germs and viruses that we are all exposed to on a daily basis?
  • why would we not WANT to take safe and affordable steps to ensure our optimum health?

Time to be pro-active about healthy living and successful aging! You may choose to start by taking this simple Health Assessment, then  contact the author with your score to help develop a plan of action to improve your health on a daily basis. It is your life and your health – embrace it!

Vaccine Myth needs to Die!

Question: If the flu vaccine actually worked, out of 100 people vaccinated, how many would be protected from the flu?
Answer: Zero to 4 – to see the mathematical calculations to prove this, please visit http://www.vaclib.org/intro/present/flu.htm

The CDC (Centre for Disease Control) has reported measles outbreak in 100% vaccinated populations. Obviously there is NO scientific evidence to support the fact that vaccinations prevent flu. Hand washing has a higher rate of success, with less side effects and considerably less cost.

Is it any wonder that only 30 – 34% of doctors, nurses and other health care workers get annual flu shots? They are educating themselves! Could those in charge of forcing edicts which affect the physical and financial welfare of citizens also spend some time educating themselves? Those in office need to spend some time questioning the expensive vaccine myth – one hour of  research would help them see why those who educate themselves do want to risk their health on questionable, myth ridden, fear mongering flu shots.

Invest 11 minutes of time to become informed. Start by watching this excellent interview by Dr. Suzanne Humphries.  As Dr. Humphries so succinctly states, “If the vaccines were so wonderful, why are they needing to be forced on the public? History books show that the people who were vaccinated were the sickest.  It is blazingly clear that much of what is taught in medical school is enormously limited.”  Please make intelligent choices and state your views to your provincial, state and federal employees, who are supposed to be protecting you! ! Watch

There is not a shred of evidence to support the myth that vaccines prevent disease. In fact, research shows the opposite is true.

The FACTS are that besides low efficacy, a few other reasons for not wanting the flu or any other vaccine might include:

  • The two publicly-funded vaccines in Canada, Fluviral and Vaxigrip both contain thimersol. For those who may not be aware, that is mercury – the cause of the Mad Hatter’s Disease – remember Alice in Wonderland? Dr. Hugh Fudenberg, world leading immunogeneticist states that getting the annual  flu shots for 5 consecutive years increases chances of getting Alzheimers by 10 times.
  • Neuroscientists at UBC recently published several scientific papers that question vacccine safety due to thimersol. http://news.yahoo.com/aluminum-adjuvant-vaccines-causes-risk-children-according-journal-080422429.html. This is particularly relevant for the ever-increasing number of childrens’ vaccines being promoted.
  • The first syndrome to be clearly correlated with the influenza vaccination was the Guillain-Barre paralysis (1977). That’s right – since 1977, and not with a few research papers, in a few countries, but over thousands! Only one year later, researchers discovered that neurological complications were not at all restricted to this one syndrome; on the contrary, they found a good number of post-vaccination neurological affections.
  • ALL charts that show mortality from ALL communicable diseases, including Tuberculosis, Polio, Scarlet Fever, Whooping Cough, Measles, Tetanus,  Small Pox, from 1860 to present clearly indicate that these diseases ALL decreased in 78 – 98% before the introduction of vaccines. Several also show an increase in death after vaccinations!
  • Of the 2769 flu outbreaks reported in Canada in 2009/10, 95.4% occurred in schools. Why are Health Care workers being targetted?

As health care workers and the general public become more educated and question both the safety AND efficacy of vaccinations, is this the only way the government can respond, forcing the vaccine with penalties to workers? Wearing masks, no work, no pay? Mandatory vaccinations are imposed in some US states; every person needs to fight this to prevent noxious, poisonous substances from being forced into our bloodstreams!

The Canadian Charter of Rights & Freedoms guarantees freedom of religion or conscience and the right to “security of the person”. Canadian Medical Law affirms the right to exercise Informed Consent and to refuse invasive medical procedures based on risk assessment. Forced vaccination violates basic rights as a Canadian citizen. Pretty sure it does in the US too.

It is time for some real research, some real facts. I willingly offer to provide websites, medical journals, charts and references to any interested, and would greatly welcome any response to this.

Two other excellent non-profit sites for your research are: http://vran.org/ and http://www.thinktwice.com/ . It is time to dispel the many assumptions and myths upon which immunization theory and practice are based as they have been proven false in their application.
