An article Of Dr. Zinkal Appeared in QualPharma International - Uses And Abuses Of Immunization

Human body can efficiently preserve health with its specialised immune system. Whenever any foreign body tries to invade, the natural fighting mechanism of body gets activated to identify pathogens, and develop antibodies against it to fight it out. Most of the time; it works and body remembers the germs and responds swiftly if attacked by same in future. This protection is called as immunity. However, the times when immunity system is unable to recognise or delays in responding; these pathogens can overwhelm the immune system and end up causing serious illness in body.

“How to immunize a being to fight against all external harmful factors?” has been always a need of an hour. The practice of immunization dates back hundreds of years; where Buddhist monks drank snake venom to confer immunity to snake bite. In 1789 Hahnemann [Father of Homoeopathy] used bark from the Peruvian cinchona tree to create a fever similar to the fever of malaria, in order to cure the disease. After continued experiments and developments, he is now credited as being the first individual to give concept of “the products of dis- ease could be used to cure similar disease”. A few years later, in 1796, Ed- ward Jenner inoculated a 13 year-old- boy with vaccinia virus (cowpox), and demonstrated immunity to smallpox. In 1798, the first smallpox vaccine was developed.

As per the theory, vaccination is an attempt to produce immunity to a specific disease by introducing live but weakened microbes of the disease. Here, body recognises foreign germ, develops an antibodies against the germs of the vaccine and remembers to destroy it in future if exposed in real.

When vaccine is introduced to blood- stream, it doesn’t make more viruses; instead the virus (along with the foreign genetic material) sits on the cell’s DNA.

It is been found many time, when immune system senses the foreign element in the cell and sends out antibodies; it happens to attack the body’s own innocent cells also. The particular tissues that are attacked are most likely based on the type of the individual virus injected. For example, the tetanus virus has been linked with an increase in allergies and asthma; the measles virus has been linked with an increase in Crohn’s disease.

In response to the incorporation of the foreign DNA and RNA, there are various genetic mutations and disorders that can occur, including: childhood ear and upper respiratory infections, brain damage in the form of learning disabilities, hyperactivity, social aggressiveness, seizures and autism.

More often than not, these vaccine viruses cause no immediate discernible outward symptom. These viral genes derived from vaccines can hide in our DNA for decades and finally erupt into some form of immune disorder or disease. They remain silent in our bodies until they later trigger autoimmune dysfunctions like rheumatoid arthritis, celiac disease, anemia, schizophrenia, multiple sclerosis and other genetic malfunctions that contribute to the future onset of cancer. [Radical Medicine by Dr. Louisa L. Williams]

It reminds me of “collateral damage”; an unintended side effects in military operations during war. Where a bomb is dropped on a building considering it as an enemy headquarters, targeting to destroy all enemies; but it turns out killing innocent civilians too from the building. Similarly the possibility of col- lateral damage in form of serious illness we cannot deny after mandated vaccines.

“There is no evidence whatsoever of the ability of vaccines to prevent any diseases. To the contrary, there is a great wealth of evidence that they cause serious SIDE EFFECTS.”~Dr. Viera Scheibner

To give an idea of the extent of the side effects listed in vaccine package inserts, take Merck & Co.’s insert for its M-M-R (mumps, measles, rubel- la) II live virus vaccine. Look under “Adverse Reactions” and be amazed at the wide range of potential short and long-term health hazards that the vaccine can cause.

For the body as a whole, Merck lists MMR vaccine reaction reports that include atypical measles, fever, and syncope. For the immune system include anaphylactic angio-neurotic edema (including peripheral or facial edema) and bronchial spasm in individuals with or without an allergic history. For the nervous system, Merck lists encephalitis, encephalopathy, Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS), ataxia, polyneuropathy, ocular palsies, and pares- thesia, Finally, under “Other,” Merck lists death.

Encephalitis and encephalopathy?

Those are neuro-developmental disor- ders associated with chronic brain dysfunction, including seizure disorders and developmental delays like learning disabilities, ADHD and autism.

Guillain-Barré Syndrome?

GBS involves paralysis of different parts of the body similar to paralytic polio. Convulsions? Seizures? Death?

And note that these aren’t atypical side effects for the MMR vaccine. Pick up package inserts for manufacturer’s information for any vaccine and you will see a laundry list of reported serious side effects

Won’t you think twice before injecting any live microbes in healthy body to protect against something specific, which may or may not happen to you, but the process of immunizing against it may harm extensively? Won’t you think many times for a good sustainable way of boosting immunity, which is harmless, holistic, and easy to introduce?

Homoeopathic nosodes come in my mind which counts to be little less familiar way of immunization, runs with parallel intentions of immunizing a being by using a disease products but the most significant difference is that homeopathic nosodes do not contain live or weakened microbes that can cause DNA damages. Like any other homeopathic remedy, the process of potentiation renders the nosodes chemically harmless but homeopathically active.

The eminent British homeopath, Dorothy Shepherd, writes that the homeopathic remedy Pertussin was given daily for 2 weeks to 364 cases after contact with whooping cough and not one child developed the disease. Leslie Speight writes of another doctor, in 1850 Lathyrus sativa was given to 82 people who were in close proximity to a polio outbreak with 12 people in direct contact, and noone developed the disease.

There is also a long history in homeopathy of using a remedy that fits most of the cases during an epidemic (i.e., the genus epidemicus remedy) to prevent serious disease in those who might be exposed like swine flue and chickenguinea. Here are the few nosodes proven clinically to work evidently against specific diseases.

Diphtheria: Pyrogenium nosode;

Measles: Morbillinum nosode;

Haemophilusinfluenza B: Haemophilus influenza B;

Mumps: Parotidinum nosode;

Polio: Lathyrus sativa;

Rubella: Rubella nosode;

Tetanus: Ledum palustre;

Whooping Cough (Pertussis): Pertussin nosode

Homoeopathy renders potential remedies to stop and combat the adverse effects caused by vaccinations. Classical homoeopaths take help of individual history; considering the changes appeared since diseased and prescribes on bases of that totality. Thuja Occiden- tals is one of the efficient remedy heads the list in all cases of side effects caused by vaccinations and many pediatrician advice Thuja 30c before vaccination as a preventive measures.

I have always opted and recommended to avoid all those unnecessary vaccines which immunes to common curable diseases like flue and Influenza and looked for ways to boost overall immunity with holistic modes of treatments like homoeopathy. Like ways I will appeal all to read the package insert; weigh your pros and cons; do your own research; make a wise choice, because once you vaccinate; You cannot “UNvaccinate”.
