PaleoJay's Smoothie Cafe #96 What's wrong with vaccinations?

There is a real problem in how the Federal Government, Big Pharmaceuticals, and Big Medicine have been handling the vaccinations in this country.  Voices are shrill from those that are in power over US, the people in the U.S.- you MUST get vaccinated- if you don’t you are endangering everyone!  And so, the line of reasoning is tending in this direction- we will make you get them!  Government Control!!

This is a major problem, since those big 3 organizations of Big Government, Big Pharma, and Big Medicine are mainly concerned with PROFIT, not our health.  These are the same entities that have given us the Food Pyramid dominated by grains, sugar, and low fat everything.  Under these guidelines, the American people have become more sick and inflamed than ever before!

More importantly even than the effects of all of this bad food, and poor lifestyle of endless sitting, little sleep, and no real nutrition is what this behaviour does to our gut microbes- the tiny GOOD bacteria that we have co-evolved with, and that keep us healthy, improving the terrain of our bodies so that we can fight off BAD bacteria!

It’s similar to what happened to dairy in this country when we allowed big dairy to industrialize away from small farms, and crowd cows together in filthy conditions with no access to good grass and space to move, and instead loaded them up with spent grains from the brewing industry in the early 1900’s.  Suddenly, milk needed to be pasteurized!  Our cows were leading lives like most of us do today- not exercising properly, or sleeping, or getting out in nature as we are meant to, and being jammed all together in huge numbers- they were chronically sick animals, just as now we are all chronically sick.

Oh, and they also started to need huge amounts of antibiotics, and other medicines  and vaccines just to survive long enough to slaughter... Sound familiar?

 If we insist on living unhealthy, SAD types of lives, we will sadly have to take many medicines just to relieve the symptoms of diabesity and all related modern illnesses.  BUT, if we have tons of vaccinations when YOUNG, to ward off relatively minor diseases like measles, and mumps, etc.; we are setting ourselves up, since by compromising out immune systems and gut microbes to gain a perceived immunity to minor illnesses, we set ourselves up later for autoimmune diseases, cancer, and a host of really devastating diseases in our 50’s and 60’s, when we can’t really fight them off.

And the modern vaccine?  They are loaded with thimerosal, a mercury based preservative.  And just the sheer AMOUNT of the stuff: twenty years ago children received 18 vaccines between 2 months and 5 years .
Now they receive 49 total vaccine doses between 2 months and 5 years and during this same twenty-year time frame (as we have increased the number of vaccines) we have seen a huge increase in autism, ADD/ADHD, allergies, asthma, and chronic illness that cannot be explained on environmental factors alone. Many call it coincidence. It is not.
Russia banned thimerosal from children’s vaccines 20 years ago, and Denmark, Austria, Japan, Great Britain and all the Scandinavian countries have since followed suit.

“You couldn’t even construct a study that shows thimerosal is safe,” says a Dr.Haley, who heads the chemistry department at the University of Kentucky. “It’s just too darn toxic. If you inject thimerosal into an animal, its brain will sicken. If you apply it to living tissue, the cells die. If you put it in a petri dish, the culture dies. Knowing these things, it would be shocking if one could inject it into an infant without causing damage.”

As Kelly Brogan, MD puts it: Ancestral health enthusiasts know that immunity cannot be manufactured, that buoying us with synthesized antibiotics and steroids — best left to emergency medicine — is a practice that is only necessitated by neglect of nutrition-based immune support.

When agencies point out that vaccines have greatly lowered death rates due to common diseases, you should know that the death rate by these diseases fell by over 90% before mass vaccinations began. Sanitation practices implemented at this time are the true cause of falling rates of disease.  We should be thankful more to plumbers than to modern medicine!

Given all of the above, you probably think that I am totally anti-vaccine.  No, but like most of modern medicine I think we have gotten carried away by progress and modernity, and abdicated responsibility for our own health and wellness to hospitals and  clinics and doctors.  The only one who can ensure your own health is YOU!

 When human beings live according to their actual evolutionary biology, that is with God made foods of naturally raised animals and wild caught seafood, nuts, grass fed dairy, and organic vegetables and fruits, exercising  and sleeping appropriately they tend to get really healthy. Humans that live in this natural, ancestral type of condition are very, very resistant to disease, because they are not chronically inflamed from huge amounts of man-made modern super gluten wheats and grains, rancid industrial seed oils like margarine and soy, and they have also preserved and help keep intact a thriving microbial population inside their guts!  This last is incredibly important, as it is these gut microbes that keep us healthy and protect us from the many BAD microbes that are constantly working on infecting us.

But, since we do live in an age when disease is rampant- in addition, although this is hugely controversial just because it is politically incorrect, a time and place when mass illegal immigration from backwards countries is occurring, and exposing us to people who are carrying numerous diseases that heretofore were just about extinct in the developed world, I think a judicious, limited, and well spaced out choice of vaccines is ideal.

Get yourself a vaccine friendly pediatrician, one that really knows the pitfalls of the modern vaccine.  Consider each vaccine carefully, and so SLOWLY as you give them, with plenty of recovery time between each one.

Here is one such plan, as laid out by the Wellness Mamma:

Alternative Vaccination Schedule: Is There a Safe Way?
by The Paleo Mama
This is the alternative vaccination schedule that is recommended by our vaccine-friendly Pediatrician.
Alternative Vaccination Schedule (Select/Delay)
6 months DTaP (Diphtheria, Tetanus, and Pertussis)
9 months DTaP
12  months DtaP
15  months HIB (Haemophilus influenzae b)
18  months IPV (inactivated polio vaccine)
24  months IPV or Prevnar
27 months IPV or Prevnar
36  months MMR (measles, mumps, rubella)
48 months DTaP booster and IPV booster
5 years Whatever was not done at age 4.

Do not get the chicken pox vaccine, or the worse than worthless Flu vaccine!  And steer FAR clear of Gardasil!!  Unnecessary, and very dangerous!

Your choice- 
Don’t be one of those parents that feeds their kids cheeto’s and ding dongs, and buys them happy meals, and clears their own conscience by “ensuring” their health with plenty of vaccinations, medical visits, and medications!  Give your kids a daily Paleo green smoothie made in your Vitamix, go on family hikes, feed them bone broth, homemade stews, and real, God made foods.  These are the greatest gifts you can give to your most precious possessions, your children... and to yourself!
