Dedicated to Wiley Girl
My heart is broken, my throat filled with the bile of fury. I need to share this story with you. Maybe it will help. I sure hope so.
For two-and-a-half years, local folks brought food and water behind a store in Ramah to a street dog we all called Wiley Girl. When hungry enough, she’d slowly venture toward the food, quickly inhale it, then retreat backward. After more than a year, she allowed us to pet her for a moment or two before her distrust of humans kicked in and she’d retreat. Finally – just last week – Wiley Girl allowed Linda to take her into her arms and, even more miraculously, into her home.
She had already borne at least three litters and was possibly pregnant with her fourth, so Linda allowed Wiley Girl to go with a group of other rescue dogs to be spayed and neutered, hoping to spare her a fourth litter of unwanted pups.
Linda only expected Wiley Girl to be spayed and brought home. She had no idea vaccinations were part of the package. Spaying a female dog is major surgery. Major surgery is an unavoidable assault on the immune system. Vaccinations are a cocktail of chemicals that the body reacts to like poison. Wiley Girl’s weakened immune system wasn’t strong enough to fight off those poisons. Within hours, her vital organs shut down one by one until she died in agony.
Why Are Vaccines Mandatory? Or Wait… Are They?
Parents have told me schools and doctors blacklisted (refused admission or services) their kids until they received the “proper vaccinations.” I’ve also learned those vaccines are more “heavily recommended” than mandated by law (see http://bastisfoundation.org for more info).
As a naturopath who works with both humans and animals, I’m constantly asked whether or not someone should get a vaccine. I cannot make that decision for anyone other than myself and my family, but after what happened to Wiley Girl, I feel compelled to voice my opinion.
Let’s review history.
What is a Vaccine?
In general, vaccinations stimulate immunity against a specified disease by injecting a weakened form of the bacteria or virus into the bloodstream. The concept is simple: make the body think it’s under attack; it will respond by building antibodies to defend against the invading entity, thus creating immunity to later exposure.
The whole idea was discovered in the late 1700s by Edward Jenner, who noticed that milkmaids infected with cowpox were immune to smallpox. He gathered pus from their cowpox lesions, reduced it to an inoculation, and injected it into an eight-year-old. When that boy later proved to be immune to smallpox, immunization was born.
Some saw this as disgusting; others as a miracle. No one really saw future consequences. Over the ensuing centuries, numerous forms of animal and human matter have been used to create vaccines, including minced up spinal cords from deceased patients, plus blood, flies, and feces. To reduce these substances to inoculations, scientists add thimerosol (mercury), formaldehyde, aluminum hydroxide, and a variety of other chemicals highly toxic to the human body. Researchers are finding the side effects of absorbing those chemicals include autism, diabetes, asthma, MS and SIDS.
While live-culture vaccines no longer contain feces, they still comprise tissues from cows, monkeys, pigs, chicken embryos, aborted human fetuses and other live hosts. Those tissues contain foreign material, RNA, DNA, and other dangerous animal viruses and deadly contaminates that cannot be filtered out.
“[It is] apparent these cells contained many unwanted viruses, some of which were lethal to humans,” warns virologist Leonard Hayflick, MD. “Virus interaction can’t be controlled. By their very nature they are mutating organisms.”
Prime example: the Simian virus 40 (SV40) crossed into the human population from monkeys via the polio vaccination and has since been tied to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and brain tumors. Dr. Hana Golding, Chief of CBER’s Laboratory of Retrovirus Research, believes fragmented DNA contaminants in vaccines might actually remain active, combine in vaccines, and create new mutant disease strains! “The vaccines we give our children are liquids filled with a host of unknown particles, most of which came from the cells of non-humans,” reports investigative journalist Janine Roberts. “Truly we do not know what we are doing or the long-term consequences.”
Confused by Our Choices?
It’s a fascinating conundrum. Our government continually assures us that vaccinations are necessary to keep our children healthy. But, just in case they’re wrong, Congress passed the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act to prohibit us from suing the vaccine-producing companies should one of our kids get sick or die from a “necessary” inoculation. And, just in case our kid gets sick or dies, Congress also created the Vaccine Injury Compensation Trust Fund to pay us for any vaccine-related injury or death as of October 1, 1988 (DHHS’ National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program).
Huh? Exactly. Go ahead, read it again. It still won’t make any sense.
How Many More?
We know that too many teenage girls to list have died after taking HPV (human papilloma virus) vaccinations. Many more will never bear children. Gardasil® injections supposedly guard against common sexually transmitted diseases in America. Of course, so does using safe-sex measures, but somehow people think it’s better to inject poison into their teenage daughters than talk to them about condoms.
I just don’t get it. Which is worse, condoms or menopause at age 16?
Are All Vaccines Dangerous?
I wanted to say ‘absolutely not.’ I was told as a child that vaccines were lifesavers. I thought 13 different diseases had been wiped out due to worldwide inoculations. So I went to verify that I was correct when I told you that vaccines had all but eradicated many diseases. I wanted to reiterate that the polio vaccine wiped out polio, in spite of recurring side effects today in many who received the vaccine some 50 years ago. But after further research that is backed up by our government and the National Vaccine Information Center, I learned that polio already had become almost non-existent when the vaccine arrived; 35,000 new cases suddenly erupted with the inoculations. The Bubonic Plague never had a vaccine and was eradicated with no reappearance. When the whooping cough vaccine came about, 98% of the children who received the vaccine developed whooping cough.
Controversy on this topic is intense. To protect yourself and your loved ones, educate yourself so you have the best facts available before you decide to have yourself or your family vaccinated. (Find more information at the links listed below.) Too many of today’s inoculations are less about eradicating deadly epidemics than about making money, or worse, catering to fear.
The Pros Weigh In
After Wiley Girl died, I consulted some highly respected animal and human doctors and asked if it was standard procedure to give anyone – human, dog, cat, lizard – a round of vaccinations in conjunction with major surgery. They all reacted with horror. The dog, they unanimously said, already had a natural immunity just from living on the streets. No inoculation was necessary – in fact, it undoubtedly reduced her ability to survive surgery.
All vaccines come with a label warning from the manufacturer: Do not vaccinate unhealthy specimens. Every vet knows this, all of my sources claimed. Antibiotics to prevent infection? Absolutely. Vaccines? Absolutely not.
“As a veterinarian with over 67 years’ experience in the laboratory of life, I feel vaccines, drugs and chemicals are the main causes of chronic diseases. My advice: educate yourself with research . . . Vaccines, drugs and chemicals do not awaken the doctor within us all but rather add more dis-ease to an energetic being in physical form trying to maintain optimum cell replication.” Stephen Blake, DVM
“Vaccines have long been implicit contributors to the incurable autoimmune diseases we have so much of in pets today – which we didn’t seem to have in the early 1970s when I was still in vet school.” Henry Kostecki, DVM
While interviewing a local MD I met at La Montañita Co-op (who prefers to remain anonymous), he thanked me for bringing this topic to you in the Gallup Journey, but decided to cut our interview short; his daughter was in labor and he wanted to make sure his grandchild wouldn’t receive any vaccines containing mercury.
And yet Nancy Mullan, MD, claims that, “even those vaccines without mercury contain aluminum as an adjuvant, over-stimulating the immune system and causing outbreaks of allergies, asthma and other autoimmune disorders. There are so many reasons just to say ‘NO.’”
So, Do I Recommend Getting a Flu Vaccination?
Last year, British journalist and TV host Piers Morgan received a flu shot on the Dr. Oz show. Days later, he moaned he was experiencing the worst flu of his life. One of his guests said, “Well, duh, whaddaya expect when you get vaccinated?” Piers miserably replied, “Never again.”
You asked my opinion? You got it. Your choice.
