I (Physician's name, degree)_________________________, _____ am a physician licensed to practice medicine in the State of ________________ . My State license number is _______________ , and my DEA number is _______________. My medical specialty is ______________________ .
I have a thorough understanding of the risks and benefits of all the medications that I prescribe for or administer to my patients. In the case of (Patient's name) ___________________________ , age _________________ , whom I have examined, I find that certain risk factors exist that justify the recommended vaccinations.
The following is a list of said risk factors and the vaccinations that will protect against them:
Risk Factor Vaccination:
I am aware that vaccines typically contain many of the following fillers:
• aluminum hydroxide
• aluminum phosphate
• ammonium sulfate
• amphotericin B
• animal tissues: pig blood, horse blood, rabbit brain,
• dog kidney, monkey kidney,
• chick embryo, chicken egg, duck egg

• washed sheep red blood
and, hereby, warrant that these ingredients are safe for injection into the body of my patient. Reports to the contrary, such as reports that mercury thimerosol causes severe neurological and immunological damage, are not credible. I am aware that some vaccines have been found to have been contaminated with Simian Virus 40 (SV-40) and that SV-40 is causally linked by some researchers to non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and mesotheliomas in humans as well as in experimental animals.
I hereby give my assurance that the vaccines I employ in my practice do not contain SV 40 or any other live viruses. (Alternately, I hereby give my assurance that said SV-40 or other viruses pose no substantive risk to my patient.)
I hereby warrant that the vaccines I am recommending for the care of (Patient's name) _______________ _______________________ do not contain any cells from aborted human babies (also known as “fetuses”).
In order to protect my patient's well being, I have taken the following steps to guarantee that the vaccines I will use will contain no damaging contaminants.
I have personally investigated the reports made to the VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) and state that it is my professional opinion that the vaccines I am recommending are safe for administration to a child under the age of 5 years.
The bases for my opinion are itemized on Exhibit A , attached hereto, “Physician's Bases for Professional Opinion of Vaccine Safety.” (Please itemize each recommended vaccine separately along with the bases for arriving at the conclusion that the vaccine is safe for administration to a child under the age of 5 years.)
The professional journal articles I have relied upon in the issuance of this Physician's Warranty of Vaccine Safety are itemized on Exhibit B , attached hereto, “Scientific Articles in Support of Physician's Warranty of Vaccine Safety.” The professional journal articles that I have read which contain opinions adverse to my opinion are itemized on Exhibit C , attached hereto, “Scientific Articles Contrary to Physician's Opinion of Vaccine Safety.” The reasons for my determining that the articles in Exhibit C were invalid are delineated in Attachment D , attached hereto, “Physician's Reasons for Determining the Invalidity of Adverse Scientific Opinions.”
I understand that 60% of patients who are vaccinated for Hepatitis B will lose detectable antibodies to Hepatitis B within 12 years. I understand that in 1996 only 54 cases of Hepatitis B were reported to the CDC in the 0-1 year age group. I understand that in the VAERS, there were 1,080 total reports of adverse reactions from Hepatitis B vaccine in 1996 in the 0-1 year age group, with 47 deaths reported. I understand that 50% of patients who contract Hepatitis B develop no symptoms after exposure. I understand that 30% will develop only flu-like symptoms and will have lifetime immunity.
I understand that 20% will develop the symptoms of the disease, but that 95% will fully recover and have lifetime immunity. I understand that 5% of the patients who are exposed to Hepatitis B will become chronic carriers of the disease. I understand that 75% of the chronic carriers will live with an asymptomatic infection and that only 25% of the chronic carriers will develop chronic liver disease or liver cancer, 10-30 years after the acute infection. The following studies have been performed to demonstrate the safety of the Hepatitis B vaccine in children under the age of 5 years.
In addition to the recommended vaccinations as protections against the above cited risk factors, I have recommended other non-vaccine measures to protect the health of my patient and have enumerated said non-vaccine measures on Exhibit D , attached hereto, “Non-vaccine Measures to Protect Against Risk Factors.”
I am issuing this Physician's Warranty of Vaccine Safety in my professional capacity as the attending physician to (Patient's name) ________________________________.
Regardless of the legal entity under which I normally practice medicine, I am issuing this statement in both my business and individual capacities and hereby waive any statutory, Common Law, Constitutional, UCC, international treaty, and any other legal immunities from liability lawsuits in the instant case.

Vaccines, Depression and Neurodegeneration After Age 50: Another Reason to Avoid the Recommended Vaccines.
By Russell L. Blaylock, M.D. , CCN
It has been estimated that 14.8 million Americans suffer from major depressive disorder and of this number 6 million are elderly. If we include anxiety disorders, which commonly accompany depression, the number jumps to 40 million adults. At a cost of $44 billon dollars a year just for care of the seniors, this impacts the national budget as well. Depression later in life tends to last longer and be more severe than at younger ages. It is also associated with a high rate of suicide.
Previously, it was thought that major depression was secondary to a deficiency in certain neurotransmitters in the brain, particularly the monoamines, which include serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine. While alterations in these important mood-related neurotransmitters is found with major depression, growing evidence indicates that the primary culprit is low-grade, chronic brain inflammation. In addition, we now know that inflammatory cytokines can lower serotonin significantly and for long periods by a number of different mechanisms.
Researchers have also discovered that most people with major depressive disease (MDD) have higher levels of the neurotransmitter glutamate in their spinal fluid (CSF) and blood plasma. This is the same glutamate found as a food additive-for example, MSG (monosodium glutamate), hydrolyzed proteins, calcium or sodium casienate, soy protein isolate, vegetable protein concentrate or isolate, etc. Much of the free glutamate in the brain of depressed people comes from within, that is it escapes from special cells within the brain itself (microglia and astrocytes). Free glutamate, that is, existing outside the neurons, is very toxic to brain connections and brain cells themselves -- mainly by a pr! ocess ca lled excitotoxicity.
This connection between high brain glutamate levels and major depression was discovered quite by accident, when researchers observed that the anesthetic drug ketamine could relieve depression for a prolonged period. Ketamine is a powerful blocking drug for a class of glutamate receptors (NMDA receptors).
For quite some time it was known that depression could cause a loss of neurons in the hippocampus of the brain-the area most important for recent memory (declarative memory or working memory), the form of memory most affected in Alzheimer's disease. This shrinkage of the brain usually occurred with long-term depression, yet it was shown, using sophisticated testing, that even without brain shrinkage, memory could be adversely affected. Some antidepressants could not only reverse the memory loss but could reverse the shrinkage as well.
The implication was that the elevated brain glutamate, via excitotoxicity, was destroying brain connections and later killing brain cells in the hippocampus and that the antidepressants were lowering brain glutamate levels. Subsequent studies have confirmed that drugs that block excitotoxicity also reduce depression and that some antidepressants reduce brain glutamate levels.
The Link Between Elevated Brain Glutamate and Inflammation
A tremendous amount of research has now demonstrated the link between chronic low-level brain inflammation, elevated brain glutamate levels and major depression. We know that as we age, the level of inflammatory immune cytokines increase (such as interleukin-1ß (IL-1), IL-6 and TNF-a). That is, the level of inflammation in our body increases, with high levels being seen at the extremes of life -- the 80s and 90s.
This progressive elevation in the body's inflammation increases our risk of a number of inflammation-linked diseases, such as cancer, arthritis, muscle weakness, fatigue, sleep disturbances, memory loss and confusion. People with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease have e! ven high er levels of these inflammatory cytokines -- much higher.
When inflammatory chemicals are elevated in the brain it makes brain cells more vulnerable to a number of toxins, many of which are in the environment. One study demonstrated, using a series of sophisticated techniques, that if brain cells were exposed to low levels of a pesticide there was little toxicity seen and that if you exposed these same brain cells to an immune stimulant alone, little damage occurred. But if you first exposed the brain cells to the immune stimulant, the same low dose of pesticide could destroy a great number of brain cells.
The importance of this observation was that the vaccine made the brain cells hypersensitive to the toxin so that even in concentrations that normally would do not cause harm, could wiped out most of the neurons. One of the strongest connections between an environmental toxin (pesticides) and a neurological disorder is with Parkinson's disease. The reason it is more common in the elderly is that they have the highest levels of inflammatory cytokines. This also explains the high incidence of Alzheimer's disease, which reaches incidences of 50% after age 80.
The link depression was also by accident. Doctors using immune cytokines to treat patients with cancer or hepatitis found that one third of the patients developed major depressive illness within days of the treatment and that it resolved only when the treatment was terminated. Other studies, in which inflammatory cytokine levels were measured in people with major depressive illness, also found most had high levels of these inflammatory chemicals.
To their surprise, they found that many of the antidepressant medications commonly used lowered inflammatory cytokines levels and that patients who failed to respond had the highest level of the cytokines.
So, how is this linked to excitotoxicity? Neuroscientists have known for some time that inflammatory cytokines cause the brain to release higher levels of glutamate -! - the mo re intense the inflammation, the higher the brain glutamate level. The highest levels are found in the prefrontal lobes and limbic system, the areas most related to mood control. MSG also increases brain inflammation.
Vaccination and Brain Inflammation
A great number of studies have shown that when you vaccinate an animal, the body's inflammatory cytokines not only increase dramatically, but so do the brain's inflammatory chemicals. The brain has its own immune system that is intimately connected to the body's immune system. The main immune cell in the brain is called a microglia. Normally, these brain cells are lying throughout the brain in a resting state (called ramified). Once activated, they can move around, traveling between brain cells like amoeba (called amoeboid microglia).
In the resting state, they release chemicals that support the growth and protection of brain cells and their connections (dendrites and synapses). But when activated, they secrete a number of very harmful chemicals, including inflammatory cytokines, chemokines, complement, free radicals, lipid peroxidation products, and two excitotoxins -- glutamate and quinolinic acid.
In essence, these brain immune cells are out to kill invaders, since the body's immune system sent an emergency message that an invasion had occurred. With most infections, this phase of activation last no more than a few days to two weeks, during which time the immune system successfully kills off the invaders. Once that is accomplished, the immune system shuts down to allow things to cool off and the brain to repair what damage was done by its own immune system.
What researchers knew was that during this period of activation, people generally feel bad and that what they experience closely resembles depression -- a condition called "sickness behavior". Most of us have experience this when suffering from a viral illness -- such things as restlessness, irritability, a need to get away from people, trouble sleeping, fatigue! and dif ficulty thinking.
Studies have shown that there are two phases to this "sickness behavior"; one in which we have the flu-like symptoms and a later onset of depression-like symptoms that can last awhile. They have also shown that all of these symptoms are due to high levels of inflammatory cytokines in the brain, which come from activated microglia.
A number of studies have also shown that after age 50, people have exaggerated and prolonged "sickness behavior", much more so than younger people. This is one of the reasons why many elderly hang onto flu symptoms for months after exposure.
There is also another immune phenomenon that plays a major role in vaccine-related brain injury. Researchers discovered that when you vaccinate an animal, the brain microglia immune cells turn on partially (called priming), that is, they are in a state of high readiness. If the immune system is activated again soon after (days, weeks to months), these microglia explode into action secreting levels of their destructive chemicals far higher than normal. This overreaction can be very destructive and make you feel very depressed.
Stimulating the immune system with a vaccine is far different than contracting an infectious illness naturally. Vaccines are made of two components -- the agent you wish to vaccinate against -- for example, the measles virus; and an immune system booster called an immune adjuvant. These adjuvants are composed of such things as aluminum compounds, MSG, lipid compounds and even mercury. Their job is to make the immune system react as intensely as possible and for as long as possible.
Studies have shown that these adjuvants, from a single vaccine, can cause immune overactivation for as long as two years. This means that the brain microglia remain active as well, continuously pouring out destructive chemicals. In fact, one study found that a single injection of an immune activating substance could cause brain immune overactivation for over a year. This is very destructi! ve.
Flu Vaccines and An Expanding Vaccine Schedule for the Elderly
Public health authorities and physician societies are in an all out campaign to have every elderly person vaccinated every year with the flu vaccine as well as a growing number of newer vaccines. When I was practicing neurosurgery, the hospitals had an automatic written order on all older patients' charts mandating a flu vaccine, unless it was countermanded by the physician, which I always did. Now, they are giving the shots in malls, tents and every available site they can muster. And worse still, using lies and scare tactics to frighten the elderly onto getting the shots (such as the bold lie of 36,000 elderly dying of the flu every year).
As you age your immune system, including that special immune system in your brain, releases significantly more inflammatory immune cytokines than when you were younger. This serves to prime the microglia, as discussed. So, when you get your first flu shot your microglia overreact and does so for a very long period -- perhaps years. Many elderly report that the flu shot gave them the flu. Proponents of vaccines, retort with a condescending laugh, that it is impossible because the flu vaccine contains killed flu viruses. In truth, what these people are reporting is a prolonged, intense "sickness behavior" response to the vaccine. To the body, it is worse than getting the flu. Remember, no one is recording the number of elderly who die after getting the flu shot, especially if they die months later, which can happen with sickness behavior, especially if they have a preexisting chronic illness or are infirm.
Here is the shocking truth. With the elderly already having increased inflammatory cytokine levels both systemically and in their brain, stimulating these primed microglia so that a chronic overstimulation of the brain's immune system is triggered, will not only increase their risk of developing one of the neurodegenerative diseases, but will also substantially increase their ris! k of dev eloping major depression. Remember, this also increases their risk of suicide and even homicide dramatically.
Anxiety is a major problem with depression, and vaccinations will greatly worsen the condition. In fact, vaccination, especially multiple vaccinations, will maintain the brain in a state of inflammation that will be self-perpetuating, because the excess release of glutamate in the brain, as well as glutamate in the diet, will further enhance microglial activation and excitotoxicity.
Those who are prone to developing one of the neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease or Parkinson's disease will be at a drastically increased risk as we have seen experimentally when even animals exposed to subtoxic concentrations of environmental toxins and vaccinated develop neurologic worsening.
Most people use pesticides in their home and studies have shown that the concentrations in homes are sufficient to trigger Parkinson's disease in susceptible people. Vaccinations, as these studies have shown, will greatly increase risk. Most doctors are completely unaware of this important research.
You must keep in mind that "health authorities" urge the elderly to get the flu vaccine each and every year. This will keep the microglia in a primed and even activated state continuously. Recently, neurologists announced that the incidence of neurodegenerative disease had been grossly underestimated and that neurological diseases of aging were increasing at a frightening rate. They have no explanation. Over the last three decades the number of elderly receiving yearly flu vaccines has risen from 20% before 1980 to over 60% today.
If this were not depressing enough, now the public health authorities and medical specialty societies are adding a whole new set of vaccines for those above 50 years of age, including the pneumococcal and meningiococcal vaccines. What is being completely ignored by the promoters of these vaccines is the effect of multiple doses of immune adjuvant th! at accom pany each of these vaccines.
Lets, say you see your doctor and he talks you into getting the flu vaccine, the pneumococcal and meningiococcal vaccine all during the same office visit. That way, he can save you extra office visits. What your doctor ignores is that he is giving you three doses of powerful immune adjuvant all in one sitting, which means that your body and brain are assaulted by a massive dose of powerful immune activators, which have been proven to activate the brain's immune system to dangerous levels, even when given as a single dose. Proof of this mechanism exists not only in animal studies, but in humans as well.
Mercury and Aluminum
There are other ways that vaccines can cause havoc in the brain. Most vaccines contain aluminum compounds. A multitude of studies have shown that aluminum, especially if combined with fluoride, is a powerful brain toxin and that it accumulates in the brain. With each vaccine injection, a dose of aluminum is given. These yearly aluminum inoculations accumulate not only at the site of the injection, but travel to the brain, where it enters neurons and glial cells (astrocytes and microglia). A number of studies have shown that aluminum can activate microglia and do so for long periods. This means that the aluminum in your vaccination is priming your microglia to overreact. The next vaccine acts to trigger the enhanced inflammatory reaction and release of the excitotoxins, glutamate and quinolinic acid.
You must also appreciate that any infection, stroke, head injury or other toxin exposure will also magnify this inflammatory brain reaction initially triggered by your vaccines. Studies have now indicated that the more one's immune system is activated the more like he or she will suffer from one of the neurodegenerative diseases.
Mercury is also a powerful activator of brain microglia and can do so in extremely low concentrations-in nanomolar amounts. Because of its numerous reactions with sulfhydral compounds in the body (w! hich are ubiquitous), mercury can poison a number of enzymes both systemically and in the brain. Of special concern is the ability of mercury, especially ethylmercury (the kind found in vaccines called thimerosal) to inhibit the regulation of brain glutamate levels. (It does this by inhibiting the glutamate transfer proteins that control the removal of glutamate from outside the neuron, where it does its harm.)
In essence, mercury, in the concentrations being injected with vaccines, triggers excitotoxicity, increases brain free radicals and lipid peroxidation products, inhibits critical brain enzymes, inhibits antioxidant enzymes and impairs DNA repair ability. The flu vaccine contains enough mercury to do all of these things. You must keep in mind that each flu vaccine adds to the mercury supplied by your last vaccine, that is, it is progressively accumulating in your brain.
In addition, the aluminum in the vaccines also primes microglia and when combined with mercury is infinitively more toxic to the brain. Now, if this is not enough, we also have to consider the contamination of vaccines with foreign viruses and viral components. Studies have shown that this is not a rare occurrence, with up to 60% of vaccines being contaminated in one study of several major manufactured vaccines. When confronted with this fact, vaccine proponents just shrug their shoulders and say -- "We don't think these things are harmful."
Yet, the studies say otherwise. It has been found that insertion of viral fragments, not even the whole virus, is sufficient to trigger the brain's microglial system and subsequent excitotoxicity, leading to progressive brain degeneration. This is accepted to be the mechanism by which the HIV virus causes dementia in a great number of AIDS victims. Fragments of the virus (gp140 and Tat) are engulfed by the microglia and this triggers chronic brain inflammation and excitotoxicity. The herpes virus and measles virus can do the same thing.
Danger of Live Virus Vaccines
! A number of studies have shown that live viruses used in vaccines can enter the brain and reside there for a lifetime. One such study, in which autopsied elderly were examined for the presence of the measles virus, found that 20% of the brains had live measles viruses and 45% of other organs were infected. These viruses were highly mutated, meaning that they could be just as potent as other measles viruses, but could be even more virulent. Worse, is that in most cases they cause a smoldering destruction of tissues without the obvious symptoms of infection, which has been shown in a number of studies.
Live virus vaccines are made using a process to attenuate the pathogenic or disease-causing virus by passing it through a series of cultures. The problem is that the reverse can also happen within the body. A number of studies have shown that when we produce free radicals in our body (and we produce tons of such radicals over a lifetime), it mutates the viruses residing in our tissues. This is what was found in the autopsy study I referred to above.
Likewise, these viruses can trigger brain inflammation and degeneration, which has been shown in a number of studies-that is, there exist a chronic degeneration of the brain over years or decades. Because it is so far separated from the time of the original vaccine, physicians just attribute it to old age or heredity, anything but the vaccines.
Virologists are also concerned that such mutated live viruses can also infect other people, leading to outbreaks of disease totally unsuspected by health authorities.
Current recommendations by the CDC for adult vaccinations include a total of 14 separate inoculations with infectious agents and powerful immune adjuvants. To be fair, some of these are for special medical risks and conditions, such as high-risk behaviors, illegal drug use and HIV infected individuals. If we eliminate these, women will be exposed to 10 inoculations and men 7, should they follow CDC guidelines, which doctors follow.
According to CDC recommendations, multiple vaccinations for a single disease are separated by no more than 4 weeks, which is close enough together to produce priming and subsequent hyperactivation of brain microglia. We have seen that this can trigger a smoldering process of brain inflammation and excitotoxicity that can not only result in depression, anxiety and high suicide rates, but can increase one's risk of developing one of the neurodegenerative diseases as well.
We have also seen that in many cases a person will be injected with several vaccines during a single office visit and that this means their body is exposed to a very large dose of immune adjuvant. Compelling studies, using many animal species as well as humans, have shown that this overactivates brain inflammatory mechanism that can last for years.
In addition, several additives to vaccines, such as mercury and aluminum, are powerful brain toxins that are known to accumulate in the brain over years and can trigger brain inflammatory/excitotoxic mechanisms. Vaccine contaminants, such as bacteria, mycoplasma and viral fragments can also produce prolonged brain inflammation and neurodegeneration.
Because the elderly already have high levels of inflammatory cytokines, they are at a special risk. The very young (babies and small children) are at a high risk because their brains are undergoing the most rapid development at the very time they receive the greatest number of vaccinations -- the first two years of life. In fact, they receive 22 vaccines during the first year of life, one of which contains a full pediatric dose of mercury. Like adults, they receive many inoculations (up to 9 inoculations) in one office visit. This is insane and in my estimation, criminal.
Nasal flu vaccines are even worse, because they introduce a live virus into the nasal passages, which can then travel along the olfactory nerves, which leads to the very part of the brain first and most severely affected by Alzheimer's d! isease. A number of studies have shown that viruses and bacteria can pass along this route to the brain. In fact, in one study scientists sprayed a bacterium into the nose of mice and observed a rapid development of Alzheimer's type plaques in the mouse's brain.
So, what should older people do? First, studies have shown that the primary cause of immune deficiency in the elderly is purely dietary. The carotenoids, such as beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, canthaxanthin, lutein and lycopene significantly enhance the immunity of the elderly. Zinc, magnesium and selenium are also essential. One should also avoid omega-6 oils (the vegetable oils-corn, safflower, sunflower, canola, soybean and peanut oils), since they greatly enhance inflammation and depress immunity. The EPA component of fish oils (omega-3 oils) is also a powerful immune suppressant. DHA is not. A healthy immune system means that you can fight infections efficiently and rapidly.
Regular exercise, such as brisk walking or weight exercises three to five times a week also boost immunity, while extreme exercise suppresses immunity. Sugar and refined carbohydrates also suppress immunity and inflame the brain. Exercise protects the brain from aging effects and from degeneration.
Adequate sleep is also vital to both brain health and good immune function. Pubic health officials and spokesmen for the major medical societies are lying to the public concerning vaccine safety. We now possess sufficient information from a great number of studies to halt this disastrous vaccine policy. We are facing a medial disaster in this country, which is already well on its way.

Don’t Vaccinate! Measles is Important!
Filed under: Health — ladybex @ 6:03 am
I remember when reading Hallelujah Acre’s endorsed book about Vaccinations: Deception and Tragedy that measles is important in developing a healthy adult immune system. I researched it on the internet today, and found this site that agrees.
Measles deaths had declined by 99.4% (!) before vaccination, so there isn’t any any evidence vaccination played any part in deaths decline, while parents are spun the lie that vaccination was the only factor in the decline and therefore the only defence, while Allopathy hypes the dangers of measles. Incidentally, over 50% of measles cases have been vaccinated (see).
MMR vaccine is obviously killing more kids now than measles would be doing, with or without the vaccine (see), as FOIA shows in 1990, in the UK, there were approximately 70 deaths associated with triple vaccines (DTP and MMR), the UK Gov’ has paid out for MMR deaths, and one media report mentioned 26 deaths. (see: MMR deaths)
Vaccination is suppressing a beneficial process of the immune system, and leads to measles in younger children where it is more dangerous, while natural therapies and the real causes of measles deaths are ignored. Deaths are caused by toxemia (see), malnutrition (see) & immune deficiency, poor management and drug use (see), while the virus gets the blame (see: The Virus hunters).
So, an ineffective dangerous vaccine causing a huge epidemic of vaccine diseases (see) such as autism,& diabetes, for a beneficial disease that is safe in healthy children under proper medical care, such as Homeopathy Naturopathy & Nutritional medicine——NB: Allopaths (with a pecuniary and professional interest in vaccination), are the only doctors who say you should fear measles. If Allopathy really cared about measles deaths they would have used Vitamin C 50 years ago (see), but that would have spelt the end of vaccination along with most of their other useless, but highly profitable, drugs. Instead they persecute their heretics/whisteblowers such as Dr Wakefield, Lisa Blakemore-Brown & Dr Jane Donegan in a nasty attempt to suppress the truth on MMR and vaccine autism, as well as taking away legal funding for the victims. See: Measles quotes for more.
They will defend MMR to the death of any number of children as vaccination is the only real PR success they have to screen the failure of Corporate monopoly medicine to cure anything apart from bacterial infections, as this ex-vaccine researcher points out: “Vaccines are the last defence of modern medicine. Vaccines are the ultimate justification for the overall “brilliance” of modern medicine.” (Ref)]
Six doctors are quoted on this site as saying that vitamin C cures measles, and that vaccinations are unnecessary to prevent measles.
Under normal conditions, healthy children do not die from or become disabled from the complications of measles and if they do, questions should be asked about their management.” —Jayne Donegan MB
“Measles has been on a major decline since the mid 1850s and this has absolutely nothing to do with any measles or MMR vaccination……A growing number of parents worldwide are choosing not to vaccinate at all, and it is not because they can’t get the single jabs, it is because they don’t see vaccination as playing any kind of role in promoting the health of their children.”—–Magda Taylor, Director of The Informed Parent
“In 1991 over 60% of cases in children were “vaccinated”. ….The measles death decline graph provided shows that the measles vaccine had nothing to do with the decline in deaths, and has not affected the number of children hospitalised during epidemic years since its introduction.
I have myself, through Natural Hygiene, over 16 years, treated all forms and hundreds of cases of typhus and typhoid fevers, pneumonia’s, measles and dysentery’s, and have not lost a single patient. The same is true of scarlet and other fevers. No medicine whatever was given”.–Dr Trall, 1860.
“Many viral infectious diseases have been cured and can continue to be cured by the proper administration of Vitamin C. Yes, the vaccinations for these treatable infectious diseases are completely unnecessary when one has the access to proper treatment with vitamin C. And, yes, all the side effects of vaccinations…are also completely unnecessary since the vaccinations do not have to be given in the first place with the availability of properly dosed vitamin C.”—Dr Thomas Levy M.D., J.D. (Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases and Toxins p30)
The above site has so much information, I didn’t have time to absorb it all. Read it, and have your eyes opened.
Mary’s Herbs answers the question, “Why Not Vaccinate?”
The long term side effects far outweigh any benefits these shots may have, these include: Autism, dyslexia, seizures, speech impediments, hearing loss, blindness, SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) and chronic fatigue syndrome to name a few!
The best way to avoid contracting any disease is proper hygiene, adequate rest, and a healthy diet including supplements and Herbs, avoiding sugar artificial ingredients and preservatives. Sugar weakens the immune system, increases the incidences of infection and the body’s ability to protect itself from disease.
Just 100mg of sugar (8oz of soda contains an average of 29 grams [2900mg]) reduces immune function by 50% in one hour.
Building up the body’s natural immunity and taking responsibility for any illness that may invade the body is more beneficial than being injected with foreign proteins and toxic substances. If the immune system is undermined and not allowed to handle disease in its own way, its ability to protect the body throughout life is lessened.
I would be remiss in encouraging you to let your children catch the measles if I didn’t provide a way to treat it. I was amazed at how many healthy natural remedies there are for measles, all revolving around diet and food.
Home Remedies for Measles
The first symptoms that appear for seven to fourteen days after exposure to the virus are feverishness, cold, watering of the eyes, and a dry cough. A rash appears on the skin four days after the onset of these symptoms. This rash, which consists of small rounded spots with reddened skin in between, initially appears on the sides of the face and the neck, and then gradually spreads allover the body, appearing last on the extremities. Initially pink in colour, the spots grow darker as time passes.
Measles is usually accompanied by fever and diarrhoea. In severe cases, high fever and delirium may occur. Complications which can arise from this disease include pneumonia, bronchitis, and abscesses in the ears. One serious but rare complication is inflammation of the brain.
Measles is one of the most contagious diseases caused by a virus. This disease is easily transmitted in the early stages through the invisible droplets of moisture, which are discharged from a patient’s nose or mouth when he coughs or sneezes.
The real causes of this disease, like other diseases of childhood, are however; wrong feeding habits and unhygienic living conditions.
Oranges are very valuable in measles, as the digestive power of the body is seriously hampered. The patient suffers from intense toxaemia, and the lack of saliva coats his tongue and often destroys his thirst for water as well as his desire for food. The agreeable flavour of orange juice helps greatly in overcoming these drawbacks. Orange juice is the ideal liquid food for this disease.
The juice of lemon also makes an effective thirst-quenching drink in measles. About 15 to 25 ml of lemon juice, diluted with water, should be take for this purpose.
Turmeric is beneficial in the treatment of measles. Raw roots of turmeric should be dried in the sun and ground to a fine powder. Half a teaspoon of this powder, mixed with a few drops of honey and the juice of a few bitter gourd leaves, should be given to patients suffering from measles.
Powdered liquorice has been found valuable in relieving the cough, which is typical in measles. The child patient should be given half a teaspoon of powdered liquorice mixed with the same quantity of honey.
The use of barley water has proved beneficial for the troublesome cough in measles. This water should be taken frequently, sweetened with the newly-drawn oil of sweet almonds.
The seeds of the egg plant are a stimulant. Intake of half to one gram of these seeds daily for three days will help develop immunity against measles for one year.
As the condition improves, the child can be placed on an all-fruit diet for a few days. Thereafter he may be allowed to gradually embark upon a well-balanced diet.
The child should be kept in a well-ventilated room. As light has a detrimental effect upon the eyes during measles because of the weakened condition of the external eye tissues, the child should have his eyes shaded or the room should have subdued light.
The treatment should aim at bringing down the temperature and eliminating the toxins from the system. This can be achieved by administration of a warm-water enema every morning, application of mud packs on the abdomen twice a day - in the morning and evening, and repeated application of chest packs. Lukewarm water baths can be given every day to ease itching. Addition of extracts of neem leaves to this water will prove beneficial.
Children having measles should not be allowed to mix with others so as to avoid passing on the infection to them. In fact, they should take complete rest. Hygienic conditions, along with the above-mentioned treatment, will lead to a speedy recovery.
Medication should be strictly avoided.

CHEMICALS AND TOXINS IN OUR MODERN WORLD
by: Dr. Gary Young
Dr. Gary Young is a leading researcher of essential oils in North America and founder and president of Young Living Essential Oils Company. Dr. Young is one of the world's largest producers and distributors of organically grown therapeutic-grade essential oils. On his farms in Idaho and Utah, he grows and distills his own essential oils. He designed all the harvesting, cultivating and planting equipment himself and has the largest privately owned distilleries in the world, producing the finest quality oils that have been produced in the world bar none. After an injury confined him to a wheelchair, he entered a search for natural healing methods and not only healed himself, but discovered life-changing principles, which have opened up healing doors to countless others.
TOXINS IN VACCINATIONS DOCUMENTED RESEARCH ON TOXIC EFFECTS OF VACCINES
Most children are vaccinated three times by the time they enter grade school, the first in infancy, the second before kindergarten and then re-vaccination before entering Grade 1. The accumulation of these vaccines is what is killing our children and suppressing their immune systems. Are children dying of vaccinations? Absolutely.
My research team has gone to the courts in various states with court orders under the Freedom of Information Act to get information on vaccine contamination that the universities would not release. These documents show that vaccines reduce our immunity in many important ways because they contain many chemicals and heavy metals like mercury and aluminum which are themselves immune suppressing. Mercury actually causes changes in lymphocyte activity. Epidemics and increase in death rates follow vaccinations in every country.
This information is not unknown to our government agencies. The pharmaceutical companies push these vaccines so they can line their pockets with billions and billions of dollars while these vaccinations are injuring and killing people. Five drug companies made nine vaccines given to millions of American children - they used materials with possible Mad Cow links, and this continued for seven years before they even investigated it! It is terrible what's going on and they are claiming that this is necessary to protect your children. It is nothing but a fraudulent activity against the people.
PROTECT YOUR CHILDREN We must begin to take a stand for our rights and our freedoms. If the people of America knew the truth about vaccines, there would be a great war waged against the medical system for forcing children to be vaccinated. If you love your children, form a coalition and start fighting this. The Consumer Health Organization of Canada is a non-profit organization, and could possibly put a lobbying group together and you folks could donate some money to help this group go to Ottawa and start lobbying for your rights. If you don't start rising up and standing up for your rights, it's only going to get worse. There is nothing I would love to see more than a coalition of people rise up and file a class action suit against these pharmaceutical companies until we take them out.
Show me one place in the Bible where it says, "Go thou unto the pharmacists and be vaccinated!"
There are options or alternative ways to prevent these diseases. There is no reason for vaccinations. If your immune system were not capable of defending you against these diseases, you wouldn't be here in the first place. You have an immune system. God gave it to you and God knew what you were going to deal with when he created this world and created us.
PROGRESSION OF INFECTIOUS DISEASES BEFORE AND AFTER VACCINES I have charts and graphs which show that the many of the infectious diseases we're dealing with today were basically dead in the world until vaccines were re-introduced in the twenties, and vaccines have reawakened many of these diseases and brought them back with a vengeance. After the introduction of a vaccine for any particular disease, after a period of about 5 to 8 years, that particular disease mutates and develops a resistance to the vaccine, and then the disease rate begins to climb.
TUBERCULOSIS Graphs show that the tuberculosis virus itself was on a steady and gradual decline. It was eliminating itself from the world, until they introduced vaccines, and now it's on the rise.
TETANUS The Tetanus vaccine was introduced in the Dominican Republic in l975, and graphs showed a rise in the death rate along with inflammations and immune suppression. Tetanus was on a steady decline until they re-introduced the vaccine.
MEASLES The same thing. Measles eradicated itself and declined steadily until they re-introduced the vaccine for measles and now it's starting to climb again.
DIPHTHERIA Here we see the same thing again. Diphtheria went way up and then it slowly started declining until they introduced the vaccine again and then there was a steady increase. Going back in time, we see that the disease was basically eradicated before the vaccine was introduced.
WHOOPING COUGH When the whooping cough vaccine was introduced, we see a delay period of 5 to 10 years where it has to accumulate in the body, starts suppressing immune function and then the next generation of children are born and whooping cough is on the rise again. This happens in every single case, not just 1 out of 10, but every case.
SCARLET FEVER had declined before the introduction of immunization.
DPT (Diphtheria, Pertussin, Tetanus) This vaccine is given to children within a year after they are born. Almost 50 years ago in 1948 two Harvard Medical School scientists, Randolph Byers and Frederick Moll, along with the FDA, carried out tests on DPT vaccines at Children's Hospital in Boston and concluded that severe neurological problems followed administration of DPT vaccines. The results of the tests were published in Pediatrics, a respected medical journal. They were ignored by the medical and pharmaceutical community, who had a vested financial interest in continuing the practice. In 1976, Charles Manclark, an FDA scientist, remarked that "the DPT vaccine had one of the worst failure rates of any product submitted to the Division of Biologics for testing." In 1992, the Institute of Medicine concluded that evidence is consistant with a casual relationship between DPT and acute encephalopathy. The neurological disorders that we now see are definitely increasing, as are death rates of children under 15 years from vaccines.
Avoid Flu Shots! - ALZHEIMER'S AND THE FLU VACCINE Research by Dr. Hugh Fudenberg, M.D., the world's leading immunogeneticist and 13th most quoted biologist of our times (author of nearly 850 papers in peer reviewed journals), shows that individuals who had five consecutive flu shots between 1970 and l980 (the time of the study) have a ten times higher chance of getting Alzheimer's disease than if they had only one or two or no shots. How much clearer does it have to be? Is Alzheimer's on the rise? How many of you who are 50 and older can remember hearing about Alzheimer's 25 years ago? What happened? When did they start giving flu shots? It's all in the documentation. Dr. Fudenberg claimed that the problem was due to the mercury and aluminum in every flu shot (and most childhood shots as well). The gradual mercury and aluminum buildup in the brain causes cognitive dysfunction. Flu shots contain 25 micrograms of mercury. One microgram is considered toxic. (NVIC International Vaccine Conference, Arlington, VA September, 1997. Hugh Fudenberg, MD, is Founder and Director of Research, Neuro lmmuno Therapeutic Research Foundation.) The Johns Hopkins newsletter, l998, also predicted that Alzheimer's could quadruple in coming years.
ANTHRAX VACCINE sold by BioPort. Documented research shows that the anthrax vaccine is contaminated and in fact it doesn't work. It just destroys your immune system. Everyone gets panicky about anthrax. Have you ever been around a cow or a horse or on a farm? Anthrax is on every farm that exists in the world. So if you have ever been around a cow or a horse and you don't have anthrax, you have a natural immunity to it. So, why worry about being vaccinated? The best and the greatest safeguard you've got in the world is building a strong body and keeping it pure and clean. God said, "My spirit will not dwell in an unclean house."
VACCINE INGREDIENTS The list of ingredients which are the base substances in most vaccinations will make your blood start to boil. Mercury and aluminum, pus and sores of diseased animals. horse serum, calf serum, fecal matter, urine, and macerated cancer cells! Formaldehyde (embalming fluid), a preservative for the vaccine, a known carcinogen; a synthetic phenol, also a carcinogen, that may cause paralysis, convulsions, coma, necrosis and gangrene; Simian monkey virus No. 40 in polio vaccines. These are the major base ingredients that are used to formulate every vaccine. This is what they're putting in you when you get a flu shot and when your children get their vaccinations.
Why would anyone want to put this into their blood?
MERCURY POISONING By age two, American children have received 237 micrograms of mercury through vaccines alone, which far exceeds the EPA safe levels of 1/l0th of a microgram per kilogram per day. It is particularly toxic to infants. At birth they are given Hepatitis B containing 12 micrograms of mercury, 30 times safe levels. At four months, DPT containing 50 micrograms of mercury, 60 times safe levels. At six months, Hepatitis B and polio with 65.2 micrograms of mercury, 78 times above safe levels, and at 15 months another 50 micrograms, 4l times above the safe level. These figures are calculated for an infant's average weight in kilograms for each age. These one-day blasts of mercury are called bolus doses. There has never been any research conducted on the toxicity of such doses. My son is not vaccinated and he will never be. I will fight to the death before I allow it to happen if I have to take him to some foreign island in the South Pacific.
AUTISM is related to mercury poisoning. Mercury is found in every vaccine. Mercury is a potent neurotoxin and infants and young children are very vulnerable to the impacts of mercury because it can affect the developing brain. Dr. Candice Pert, internationally recognized pharmacologist, said that there has been an increase in autism of 500% to 600% in the last ten years. Compared to 20 years ago, there is an increase of 1,000%! And the disease is appearing in certain new forms such as regressive forms of autism where the children are initially fine, but regress when they're about a year and a half old, around the time they get the vaccines. Many mothers believe that the vaccines are responsible.
Editor's Note. WASHINGTON, March 27, 2003/U.S. Newswire. A new study of mercury in childhood vaccines demonstrates that the doses are in excess of the Federal Safety Guidelines and show alarming evidence for a link between these excessive doses of mercury from thimerosal-containing vaccines and neurodevelopment disorders such as autism and speech disorders as well as heart disease. Those are the findings of the study published in the current issue of the peer-reviewed Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons authored by Mark Geier, MD, PhD, President of the Genetic Centers of America and David Geier. The authors also conclude that the U.S. should ban the use of thimerosal in all vaccines. The authors point to exploding rates of autism since introduction of thimerosal in vaccines.
TRAVEL VACCINES I have travelled to just about every country in the world. I haven't been vaccinated yet, and I've never brought a disease back from any of those countries. There are some countries that say they require a vaccination in order to go there, but folks, it's a lie. For example: three years ago, you couldn't get a visa to go to Pakistan as an American unless you were vaccinated, but no vaccination is required from the land of Saudi Arabia , so we flew to Oman and got a visa from Oman to Pakistan.
Your body is a temple of God and when you vaccinate it, you have just violated it with the worst sin on the planet.
How can you be a vessel when you put that deadly poison inside God's temple?
TOXINS IN COSMETICS AND BODY CARE PRODUCTS
Your skin is the largest absorbing organ of the entire body. What you put on your skin will be on it all day long absorbing and going into your blood stream. Folks, if you're not going to eat it, then don't wear it.
Do you brush your teeth with a toothpaste from the drug store? It's cheap, only $l.49. Then you spend the rest of your life going to the dentist paying thousands of dollars, and you wonder why you get flu, head colds, head congestion, failing eyesight and polyps in the nose. A major ingredient in a common standard toothpaste is sodium laurel sulfate which was created for degreasing engines on automobiles. It's a deadly toxic substance. Every single common toothpaste, shampoo, bar soap, shaving foam, after-shave, and lipstick contains sodium laurel sulfate. It is a very cheap material that is the base for most of the other ingredients. Researchers have linked sodium laurel sulfate with major allergies in children.
Another chief ingredient in skin and hair products is propylene glycol. Every single agent in these hair conditioners and other products are deadly chemicals with severe side effects. It's the same thing with shampoo. Sodium laurel sulfate is at the top of the list, and then propylene glycol, and yellow #5, SD&C Red artificial colourings. These are all known allergens. How many people go to the doctor every year and have allergy shots because they have allergies and they don't know why.
Allergies are not a disease. Allergies are nothing more than your body saying, "I'm saturated with all these chemicals! Would you please just take me out and shoot me. I can't deal with it anymore". So it has a reaction. It hopes that you will just stop putting this crap on and into your body. Detoxify your body and your allergies are history.
Diaper ointment contains benzyl alcohol, paraffin, glycerol and propylene glycol. Are these not petrochemicals? Has anybody ever had anti-freeze on their hands? It burns like crazy. Propylene glycol is cheap. It's a stabilizer, a preservative, and it takes up anywhere from 50 to 60% of the ingredient volume! That's what's in your diaper ointment.
Don't put chemicals on your children. Love your children enough to either give them something pure or don't give them anything more than water. Don't let your body get chemicalized and the receptor sites impeded so that you can't replicate healthy living cells.
Become label readers. Start educating yourselves. We don't need chemicals, and we don't need drugs. We need what God created when he created this Earth. He gave us all the tools that we need to sustain life and protect us from these marauding diseases and viruses that have been created by man for money.
ESSENTIAL OIL PRODUCTS ARE EDIBLE I made a hand and body lotion, and every single one of the ingredients can be eaten. You may not like the taste of it, but it may be the healthiest thing that you ingest all day. I use milk protein and phospholipids and amino acids and methionine with amino acids, gluco-proteins and essential oils, lavender, clary sage, lemon, and jasmine, herbal extracts and vitamins in my aroma silk conditioner. You could eat every single item there individually or collectively. I made Tender Tush for our children and for my son Jacob. In reality, I made it for mommies to prevent stretch marks. Women don't have to have stretch marks just because they have babies. When my son was born the first thing I did was cover his little body with frankincense oil and the entire umbilical cord with myrtle oil.
LONGEVITY IN TRADITIONAL CULTURES
Old people in certain primitive countries like Hunza Land, Azerbaijan and Vilcabamba in Equador, were able to live to l40 and l60 years of age because they knew a few secrets. These people don't vaccinate their children. They don't take flu vaccines. They don't run to the doctor and the hospital every time the wind blows sideways. They do the things that they were taught by their ancestors. If they start feeling a little sick, they go off some food. Ever watch a dog when he gets sick? What does he do? He quits eating and he goes and starts eating grass. But what do we do when we get sick? Go to the hospital and get treated with jello and ice cream and 7-Up with seven teaspoons of sugar.
I visited these cultures and met people 100, 140, 160 years of age without a single thing wrong with them, still able to read the newspaper without glasses. All the people I met in these countries were farmers. They work and labour in the fields, chopping wood, milking cows, scrubbing clothes, moving the lymphatic fluid. They're still farming the old way, with a hand scythe, with horses or donkeys or oxen and they don't use chemicals. Chemicals are what's killing all of us. They're exercising, not a half-hour a day at the gym, but all day long, and the exercise stimulates the production of Human Growth Hormone. These people never had colds or coughs in their entire lives. Their eyes are bright, their skin is clear. They go mountain climbing at 130.
There are no secrets but there are lost and forgotten ways of life. In every country that I have visited, these old people all practiced fasting every year in the springtime for 30 days. It's not a total fast. They fast from daylight until dark and then they drink juices or eat fruit or vegetable soup during the evening.
During fasting, Human Growth Hormone secretes more than at any other time of your life. The only exception is during strength training where your body will produce even more Human Growth Hormone. Human growth hormone is the modulator for the immune system to keep you healthy and vital.
The other thing that is really critical is they eat foods that contain phos-phatidylserine compounds that are found in soy and foods that are high in Vitamin C.
The Inner Mongolian people actually have the longest history of continual longevity. One thousand years ago, their life expectancy was 120 years. Today their life expectancy is 120 years. It is the only country left in the world where the life expectancy has not declined with the introduction of the American diet. In Hunza Land, their life expectancy has dropped from 160 years to under l00 years. When I was there last year, all of the old people that I had met years ago were all dead. There are no more old people in Hunza Land and never will be ever again. The children had runny noses and were drinking soda pop. The great-great- great grandparents had never tasted soda pop in their lives. They wouldn't touch it, and it tore their hearts out to see their grandchildren and great-grandchildren eating these things they knew would kill them.
* * * ESSENTIAL OILS:
NATURAL IMMUNE BOOSTERS WITH ANTI-INFECTIOUS PROPERTIES
Essential oils were man's first medicine and they were used thousands of years ago. For many years, I believed that herbs were man's first medicine, but recent discoveries from Egyptian and Chinese scrolls show that oils were actually our first medicine. Herbs evolved as medicine when the peasants and slaves observed royalty using the oils with great success. Since they were restricted from using the oils, they started boiling and steeping the herbs and making teas and poultices.
Open your Bible to the book of Exodus and read about essential oils. Throughout the Bible it talks of these various oils and how they were used to protect the people. Hyssop is anti-viral and was used for cleansing the lepers and healing leprosy. Over 40 biblical references are written on hyssop alone. The garments smelled of myrrh and aloe which was sandalwood, not aloe vera. These oils contained anti-viral, anti-fungal and immune stimulating properties.
STIMULATING THE IMMUNE SYSTEM Breathing an essential oil is very effective and can stimulate the immune system. Less volatile oils with heavier molecular weights like myrrh and frankincense remain much longer in the nasal cavity. Many oils, particularly those containing sesquiterpenes and phenols that are high in oxygen, will increase the oxygen around the pituitary and pineal glands as much as 28%.
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY Essential oils like methyl salicylate found in birch and wintergreen are highly anti-inflammatory.Thymol found in thyme bulgaris is 20 times stronger than phenol. Phenol carries one oxygen molecule and is found in many of the oils, but methyl salicylate carries two more.
ESSENTIAL OILS ARE ANTIBACTERIAL, ANTIFUNGAL AND ANTIVIRAL The essential oil works solely as the plant's immune defense-mechanism. They fight infection; they are antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral. Because essential oils have such a strong action against bacteria, viruses and fungus, they are highly effective against the viruses that are facing us today. Research in universities around the world has never found a virus that can mutate in the presence of certain essential oils, particularly oils high in limonene and phenols. Grapefruit has the highest amount of limonenes. Also orange, tangerines, mandarin, lemon and white fir. Limonene which is a very potent anti-viral is now being studied at the University of Wisconsin as a cancer fighting agent by Dr. Michael Gould. Results show that it reversed breast cancer and reduced tumour growth by as much as 40% in laboratory animals. (Haag, J.D. and Gould, M.N. 1994. Mammary carcinoma regression induced by perillyl alcohol, a hydroxylated analog of limonene. Cancer Chemother. Pharmacol. 34:477-483.)
HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE The anterior pituitary secretes two hormones that are very important for immune function: TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) and HGH (Human Growth Hormone). Deprivation of oxygen reduces the secretion of TSH and HGH by the anterior pituitary and increases depression. TSH and HGH play a joint role in modulating the immune function, which is very critical.
Lavender Oil Our lavender field in St. Mary's produces the greatest lavender oil in the world. Lavender oil contains phenols which contain oxygen molecules which increases the Human Growth Hormone outlets in the anterior pituitary. All you have to do is just breathe it. Very, very simple.
Peppermint oil contains phenols. All you have to do is breathe it to increase the secretion of Human Growth Hormone. Human Growth Hormone is produced by the anterior pituitary, is converted in the liver to IGF-l and then goes to the pancreas to support immune function. Peppermint oil also contains sesquiterpenes which increase oxygen activity in the brain. European research shows that sesquiterpenes increase brain oxygen by as much as 21 to 28%.
Lemon oil is anti-infectious and anti-bacterial and has Vitamin P-like action for circulation. It is calming to the nerves and stomach. It is good for diabetes because it helps regulate pancreatic function and insulin production. It is a great disinfectant and should be in the medicine cabinets in all hospitals. It can be used for respiratory infections, insufficient liver function and digestive conditions.
Thyme Oil is a mono-terpene and is very, very high in thymol which contains oxygen molecules that increase oxygen output in the brain. It's anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral and has a wide spectrum of action against fungus and virus. It's a uterine tonic and cardiotonic. Thymol can be used for sinus, osteoarthritis, bronchitis, cystitis, vaginitis, acne, cardiac fatigue, just simple little things.
Cloves have the highest known anti-oxidant properties.
Longevity oil I created this because of its anti-oxidant properties. People in countries that have great longevity eat foods high in anti-oxidants. This oil blend contains thyme, a powerful anti-oxidant which prevents degeneration in the brain, eyes and heart according to research in Scotland and Austria.
Longevity kit - This kit contains ingredients that are essential to supporting Human Growth Hormone output, conversion and assimilation, maintenance of proteins and the activity of enzymes in the body.
Wolfberry Juice is a natural anti-oxidant that has preserved the longevity of people in Inner Mongolia who today have maintained the most consistent life expectancy free of disease. The Natural Science Institute in Beijing, China began a study in 1982 and researchers who went there did not find cancer, arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, MS, or any degenerative disease amongst the people in the villages where Wolfberry was consumed on a daily basis. Wolfberry contains 15% protein by weight and three times as much vitamin C as oranges.
Berry Young Juice One ounce is equivalent to 1/4 to 1/2 a pound of berries. When I went to Inner Mongolia to do my research, people who ate between one-quarter to one-half a pound of Wolfberries daily were disease free and had never experienced disease in eleven generations that we could research.
Ultra Young - is a spray for the bucal cavity with the Wolfberry Lycium Polysaccharide which stimulates the production of Human Growth Hormone.
CORTISOL gets rid of waste. The common factor that allows people to live to be 150 years old disease-free is cortisol and the foods that produce cortisol. But when you're under stress, the cortisol levels increase, and when cortisol is too high it blocks the HGH receptors and therefore depresses the immune function. Three cups of coffee a day will raise your cortisol levels to a high point for 18 hours and suppress your immune system during that time. Seven teaspoons of sugar will increase your cortisol levels by 300 to 400 times. The latest research in the U.S. shows that the average child consumes 40 tsp. of sugar per day. One can of soda pop contains seven to 12 tsp. sugar. Chocolate does the same thing in any form. One 30 mg. tablet of Prozac will double your cortisol levels. Vaccines increase cortisol. Phos-phatidylserine, a compound found in vitamin C in citrus and fruits high in vitamin C works as a natural cortisol blocker.
HOW TO USE THE OILS MOST EFFECTIVELY There are multiple ways. You can diffuse them in the air and inhale them. But the simplest and most effective way is to put one to two drops on the bottom of your feet. morning and night when you get out of bed, after your shower and before you go to bed. You don't need more than three drops of any one of those oils on the bottom of your feet. Peppermint oil can be diffused or you can rub a drop in your nose. Peppermint oil is fantastic for reducing fevers. Nothing that you can find in a pharmacy will break a fever quicker than peppermint oil. Peppermint oil has also been studied as a weight loss control mechanism. It smells good and it's yummy. Breathing peppermint will decrease the desire to eat, because it creates a sensation of being full.
DETOX The chemicals that we put into our bodies interfere with the conversion of cholesterol into hormones. Our research has shown that essential oils, particularly the phenol and thymol families, will literally digest the petrochemicals and clean up those receptor sites so that the hormone can fit into the receptor site and carry out its normal function. Thyme, mountain savory, oregano, lavender, peppermint and lemon oil are very high in phenols.

Is it time to give up that canned and dry pet food from the grocery stores?

***SPECIAL NEWS BULLETIN*** ORGANIC FOOD STANDARDS GUTTED WITH ONE STROKE OF THE PRESIDENT'S PEN
In a week when news of the war eclipsed all other news, a small inconspicuous article reported a HUGE change in organic food laws. The article reports that in February, 2003, United States Congress voted to gut the nation's organic food standards, NO LONGER REQUIRING that organic livestock be given feed that is 100% organic.
How could this happen? It took one request by Tom Hensley, vice-president of Fieldale Farms, a large poultry grower in Georgia who found the all-vegetable diet to be "extremely burdensome for chicken producers". He complained that organic grain was too expensive.
The new law allows producers to give their animals conventional feed with antibiotics and pesticides and STILL LABEL THE MEAT ORGANIC.
President Bush signed the measure into law. No discussion, no debate, no consumer input, all for the sake of one large poultry grower wanting to take advantage of the higher prices he could charge for the "organic" label without actually providing anything organic.
