Should I Vaccinate My Child?

June 21, 2011

 By Shane “The People’s Chemist” Ellison, M.Sc., Vaccine talk is riddled with shoddy science, emotional arguments, convoluted explanations and all out quackery. Very little common sense shines its way through the murky vaccine debate.
Rather than question the safety and efficacy of vaccines, most physicians and parents blindly “immunize” children. Rarely do they ask the lifesaving question of, “Will a vaccine protect my child?” As a pharmaceutical chemist and parent, I researched that question six years ago. The answer was an astounding no.
Vaccines are purported to work by triggering immunity. It is “thunk” by the experts that by exposing our immune system to weak or dead infectious agents, such as measles or a flu virus, that it creates the appropriate immune defense. This logic has been used to defend the use of every vaccine to date. Yet, each vaccine has proven that the theory is nothing more than mental masturbation for nerdy scientists; it sounds good and feels better, but it’s not the real thing. At best, vaccines only temporarily boost our defenses, which hardly compensates for the myriad of potential side effects. Few people are aware of – or willing to accept – these cold, hard facts.
Polio is the most feared childhood illness. It has caused paralysis and death for much of human history.   The world experienced a dramatic increase in polio cases beginning in 1910. Frequent epidemics became regular events. They were the impetus for a “Great Race” towards the development of a polio vaccine. It was developed in 1953 and an oral version soon after. Yet, unbeknownst to most, polio infection plummeted before the vaccines were introduced – thanks to better sanitation and nutrition. Good thing, because both forms were a total failure. In addition to causing the very same infection they were supposed to prevent – polio – they can also lead to sudden death and cancer.
The polio virus still exists today. But few of us suffer from it. Our protection resides in the same things that were responsible for its decline; a healthy immune system courtesy of proper sanitation and nutrition.
This same scenario was repeated in the case of the whooping cough (pertussis) vaccine. Between the years of 1900 and 1935, mortality rates due to whooping cough dropped by 79% in the U.S. Yet, the vaccine wasn’t introduced until 1940 (DTP and DTaP). Today, those most susceptible to whooping cough are the “immunized.” In 2002, researchers with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention publicly stated that “The number of infants dying from whooping cough, once a major killer of children in the United States, is rising despite record high vaccination levels in the nation.”
The measles vaccine is no different. In 1957, the MMR vaccine became widely used in an effort to eradicate measles, mumps and rubella. Rather than prevent measles, it elicited a widespread epidemic. Between 1983 and 1990, there was a 423% increase in measles cases among those vaccinated. Today, the World Health Organization (WHO) actually warns that vaccinated individuals are 14 times more likely to contract this disease compared to the unvaccinated.
The Centers for Disease Control insisted that the MMR vaccine would also eliminate mumps in the US by the year 2010. Then, in 2006, the largest mumps outbreak in 20 years occurred. Among those who suffered from mumps, 63% were “immunized.”
From its inception to now, the flu vaccine has proven just as worthless. In 2007, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that the flu vaccine had “no or low effectiveness” against influenza or influenza-like illness. The analysis of data showed that the vaccine protected from zero to fourteen percent of vaccine participants.
Considering the overt failure of vaccination, the idea of main lining an ineffective and dangerous vaccine into our vulnerable children is chilling. Regardless, Big Pharma is hell bent on pushing more. Be forewarned, each and every vaccine will follow the same ineffective trend simply because they work against our immune system, not with it.
Vaccines will never be the panacea they are marketed as. Fortunately, as long as a child has proper eating and sanitation, their immune system can ward off biological threats. And in the rare case it doesn't, emergency medicine can tackle the infection. This is health made simple. But, in a society hell-bent on trading health for wealth, it is often over looked; just like the logic that teaches, “Vaccines don’t protect children.”

I’ve been a guest at this facility for 15 years. They are the most efficient, thorough and caring group of individuals I’ve ever experienced. Dr Hotze looks to change the way a typical doctor treats patients and looks for root causes to eliminate medical issues instead of treating “symptoms”. My life has improved 100% since my initial visit. The cost of the treatments are worth it.

I cannot accurately describe in words how I feel about this practice and the entire staff. I have had quite a few health issues throughout the years, rheumatoid arthritis, sjogrens, weight gain, hair loss, irritability, and that is just the beginning. I had pretty much given up on feeling good, just decided to "live with it" and hope for the best. Two very close friends love the Hotze Wellness Clinic and they have experienced life changing health. Made my appointment and from the beginning I felt heard. Not a in and out fast food style practice. They are looked and are looking at my entire body for overall health and wellness. Connections from mind and body to clinical blood work, even dental questions....they care and I feel as if I can trust them. I am on a path to complete wellness and my goal is to have my RA back in remission as it once was....make yourself a priority. Having hope is an incredible feeling!
