My Vaccine History

I was born in the 1960’s. As far as I am aware I had what was known as the triple vaccine back then, composed of Diptheria, Tetanus and Whooping Cough, with Polio on a sugar lump. I have a scar on my arm either from the BCG, for TB, or for smallpox, so I must have had at least one of those too at some point. Did I get a vaccination for smallpox or for TB, or both? Who knows, cos I don’t.

I remember the “6 needle” injection at secondary school, the Heaf test. It came back positive, which was good, it meant no injection for TB. As a girl, I believe I also got something for rubella, for when I had babies!

I can’t believe that my mother would have questioned them. I never questioned them either. Not even when I went off to Nursing School aged 19, and they wanted to give me the whole round again. I rolled up my sleeve like a sheep. The doctor knows best after all don’t they?

As a child I caught chicken pox, mumps, measles and I think German measles. No big deal! I don’t even remember having them. I survived, I am still here, pretty healthy to be honest.

At some point in my nursing career the Hepatitis vaccine was added. A? or B? I do not know, but I obediently went along and had it, as I was told I could not nurse without it. I travelled to Africa in the early 80’s. Did I have the Yellow fever vaccine? Possibly, if they told me I needed it, then I would have got it.

So you can see that I have had my fair few number of vaccines over the years. And like the majority of people didn’t question them.

In the mid-80’s I was working on an infectious diseases unit in Southend-on-Sea, Essex. On the unit we were responsible for reporting cases of Notifiable Diseases to the authorities, when a case was identified by microbiology report. At the beginning it was for things like whooping cough, meningococcal menigitis, salmonella, campylobacter. We DID NOT report measles, mumps or rubella. But in the mid 1980’s we were asked to report these 3 diseases. We were told that a vaccine was in the pipeline, and the authorities wanted to be able to measure the effectiveness of said vaccine.

I started to ask myself questions. Why would you need a vaccine for something that I had had, and survived? These 3 childhood diseases were not killers, that we had been told the diseases were, which were in the triple vaccine and polio. It didn’t make any sense to me.

My daughter was born in 1996. I may have had a few misgivings about giving a perfectly healthy baby her 8 week vaccinations, but I obediently did. It was only when it came to the MMR that I hesitated. I put it off, I didn’t agree with it being given, and from my recollection, nobody challenged me on it. They may have asked me twice, but I think they just accepted what I said, due to my nursing background, and possibly because they felt as I did, they had had the normal childhood illnesses and had survived.

By 1996, I had left nursing, and was in the middle of my training as a McTimoney Chiropractor, where I learnt a very different approach to health. This may have had an impact on my willingness to question vaccines a little. Certainly my daughter’s pre-school boosters were not given pre-school! I knew enough about the body to know that the 1st introduction of any substance that the body will develop an allergy to, is never at the 1st dose. That is when the body mounts an immune response and makes the anti-bodies. I also knew that they have chosen to give toddlers 2 doses of MMR, because they did not know which children had made the anti-bodies, so just to be sure, they gave all children a second dose. I believe that is where so much of the issue lies. Having this knowledge, I agreed to my daughter getting 1 dose of the MMR, and no more.

10 years later, in 2007, she was in the 1st year of being offered the Gardasil vaccine.

I SAID NO!

I knew that this vaccine had been trialled on young women, but here they were, wanting to give it to pre-pubescent girls. It had never been tested on that age group. How did we know what affects it would have on their young, developing bodies.

It was an easy decision to take, as a mother, but not for my daughter to accept.

The memory of her screaming at me, whilst curled up on the stairs “You want me to die of cancer, don’t you?” will remain with me forever. I wondered what story had they been telling the girls at school?

So that is my history regarding vaccinations, up until 2 years ago. I considered myself someone who vaccinated for deadly diseases, with vaccines that had a proven track record, but was not going to vaccinate any child of mine for childhood illnesses that I and all my family and friends got, and not one person that I knew ever died. Nor was I going to vaccinate for a disease which can be controlled by safe sex and limiting sexual partners, to prevent the spread of the HPV virus.

In early 2017 I watched the full series of Ty Bollinger’s The Truth of Vaccines

It opened my eyes. I first met on screen Dr Suzanne Humphries, Judy Makovits PhD, Dr Lawrence Palevsky and many others. It took me down the rabbit hole, it made my head spin.

Now I am willing to write about what I have found, based on their work, and the work of others.

Thank you for reading this far. If you have any comments or questions, I will do my best to answer them.

Have You Missed Me?

It has been a while since I last posted. Where have I been? Well I have been down a rabbit hole, all in the search for health. And boy is it some rabbit hole. It is some maze once you get down there, and there have been times when my head felt like it was in a spin, pretty much like this picture.

Maze

What I have found is very controversial, and I have been reluctant to speak out about it, but the more I read, the more I realise the time is NOW to stand up and speak out. It is a topic that divides camps, sets sisters against sisters, mothers against mothers, each insistent that their camp is the right camp. Do you know what I am referring too?

Now I believe that there are very few mother’s who don’t want the best for their baby. If they don’t, then I am going to judge them as mentally ill. So for the purpose of this debate, I am going to say that mother’s want the very best for their children. But in my 40 years of working in a variety of health provider settings, I do not believe that we are healthier than when I started my nursing career. And I started to ask why?

What I found was a truth that was not easy to hear. Our health service is failing us. Why? Because we have been taught half a story about something that is so wide-spread, and it goes back hundreds of years.

Do you remember being taught at school, that Jenner saved the world from smallpox, by observing that milkmaids who had contracted cow-pox were immune from the disease? He thought it was a good idea to “innoculate” people with the pus obtained from the pustules. How gross. Can you imagine taking the pus out of a blackhead, and scratching a new born’s skin and smearing pus into it. Well that is basically what Jenner did. And we were taught that smallpox was kept in check, and eventually eradicated.  Only they failed to tell us that when the smallpox innoculation became mandatory, the incidence of smallpox actually went up, not down.

In Italy, where they over-vaccinated, small towns of a few thousand population had vast numbers of cases of smallpox. Towns such as Badolota, population 3,800, had 1,200 cases. That is almost a third of the population had smallpox despite being vaccinated. You can read far more about smallpox and all the other infectious and contagious diseases, in Dr Suzanne Humphries book “Dissolving Illusions“. Why did it not stop then? Why did people not see that it wasn’t working. Somehow or other the medical profession has us believing that they know better than the rest of us, without a medical degree, but believe me when I say, “there is nobody more educated than a mamma who has a vaccine injured chid”

They become an autodidact on the subject. Self taught without a formal education. They have spent hours listening to Dr Sheri Tenpenny, Del Bigtree, Robert F Kennedy Jnr, Prof Chris Exley, Brandy Vaughan, Dr Susanne Humphries, Judy Mikovits PhD to name just a few.

They chose a pathway of informed choice, which is our right before any medical procedure. But how often have we blindly done what our doctor told us to?

Which way.

Please come and join me as I try to explain why I think that vaccines are not all they are cracked up to be.

Blessings and Health

Where did 2018 Go?

Having goals are so mortant to keep motivation levels high?

This Pilgrim's Progress

Every Step logoed

I am finding it hard to believe that I have not written a single post for almost a year. I wish I could say that I have been busy training, but that would not be the truth, although I have climbed a few more hills in the past year, than I have ever done in my entire life.

Now that 2019 is here, and the real countdown begins, then I am upping the walking and fitness routine in a big way. The weather has been a bit of a hindrance, and the wind is whipping up out there as I type, and tomorrow’s walk to Conic Hill has been cancelled. Oh Well!

On the plus side, I have done my first Nordic walk since this time last year, today.  And I am very pleased to say that my fitness level has improved dramatically over this time last year, so I…

Killing for Profit Digested.

At the end of April, experts met at the European Parliament to speak about the truth, that is happening in our health system. It is frightening listening, I posted the link in a post

earlier today. The whole youtube is over 2 hours long, so I am going to paraphrase it in a number of posts in the next few days, breaking it down into small bite size chunks, so that you have the knowledge to go and challenge your doctor over medications that they recommend you take for life, namely statins, and how you can take the responsibilty for your own health.

Lifestyle Changes are MORE powerful than drugs, at preventing and treating Heart Disease.

Good Health to you All
