Kickbacks- what your pediatrician gets for vaccinating

(And a Peek At what Big Pharma Gets)

The Role Insurance Companies Play and The Kickbacks Doctors Get

Vaccines are a Trillion Dollar Business and there are incentives at every corner for anyone playing a role in injecting them into the world’s population. Just take a look at what a doctor gets from Blue Cross Blue Shield.

A Look at what the Pharmaceutical Companies Make When New Vaccines are Added

“Take a product manufacturer that has no liability for their product, add in huge financial incentives for the people administering who also hold no liability, lobby for mandates that negate a marketing budget….follow the money. This is no longer about health. 18 doses of vaccines by age 6 months. 49 doses of vaccines by age 5. 70 doses of vaccines by age 18. No safety testing on the schedule because why bother? There’s no liability”(Jodi Parker). Some people argue that vaccines have nothing to do with making money. I beg to differ.

If a drug company gets just one vaccine added to a schedule, they can make upwards of thirty BILLION dollars in one year (Brandy Vaughan, Merck Sales Rep. 2001-2003 via Vaxxed).

Now look at the schedule for vaccines.

In the United States in the 1950’s, children received 13 doses of four vaccines by age two. In the mid 1980’s, children received 15 doses of seven vaccines by age two. In 2010, the CDC recommended 37 doses of 14 vaccines by age two (Mercola and CDC). Now, in August of 2016, it is recommended that children receive 49 doses of 14 vaccines by age six, and 70 doses of 15 vaccines by age 18.  These numbers just changed by 2 doses, as this month the CDC just announced that children going into 7th and 12th grades are now required to get the meningococcal vaccine – that’s 2 more does of vaccines making it 71 doses of vaccines by age 18 and adding close to sixty billion dollars into the pockets of big pharma.

The even scarier part  – as of 2013, there were/are nearly 300 vaccines in development, as is proudly boasted in Pharma.com. Multiply 300 by thirty billion – that’s 9 TRILLION dollars in vaccines coming our way.

Just how much do vaccines cost the people giving them? Here’s a whole list from the CDC.

Vitamin C and the side effects of Vaccines

Orthomolecular Medicine News Service

Vitamin C Prevents Side Effects from the MMR Vaccine

author Helen Saul Case

(OMNS, September 10, 2016) This is not an article about whether vaccinations are “good” or “bad.” This is an article about how high-dose vitamin C can protect children from vaccination side effects. Until we have real choice as to whether or not we vaccinate our children, we must seek ways to make immunizations safer. High-dose vitamin C makes immunizations safer: http://orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v08n07.shtml

Giving the MMR Shot to a Child with Known Vaccination Sensitivity

Our daughter recently received the MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccination. In fact, she received two. New York State recently changed the law requiring an additional MMR shot in order for children to attend kindergarten. We had to make sure that she received both injections this summer before school started. We were concerned about giving her two MMR shots (and so close together) because after a previous vaccination she had a serious reaction.

Years ago, before we learned to give huge doses of vitamin C before, during, and after immunizations, our daughter (then age 15 months) had a severe reaction to the DPT (diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus) vaccination: she lost her coordination, was screaming, falling over, and spiked a high fever. High-dose, saturation-level vitamin C cured her reaction to the DPT vaccine and taught us an important lesson: give more vitamin C. Much, much more. Now, in order to protect our children from any vaccination side effects, we give very high doses of vitamin C before, during (yes, even at the doctor’s office) and after immunizations. To read more see: http://www.orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v11n09.shtml and http://www.orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v12n07.shtml.

No, the MMR shot is not the same as a DPT shot. Just because our child reacted to one vaccine, doesn’t necessarily mean she will react to another. However, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “Any vaccine can cause side effects” and “like any medicine, is capable of causing serious problems.” See: http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vac-gen/side-effects.htm When you consider just how much vitamin C our daughter held after the MMR vaccinations, we have to ask ourselves one question: where was it all going?blogphoto14

How Much C? A Lot. A Whole Lot.

Our five-year-old, 37-pound (about 17 kg) daughter received saturation-level doses of 8,000 to 11,000 milligrams (mg) of vitamin C every day the week before her first MMR vaccination. The day of her shot, she happily and comfortably held 24,000 mg. For the next couple of days after the shot, her dose was reduced to 20,000 mg/day. Then, for the next four days, her vitamin C dose went down to 15,000 mg/day. The next four: 14,000 mg, 13,000 mg, 12,000 mg and 11,000 mg per day respectively.

For the next several weeks leading all the way up to her second MMR shot, she was getting between 8,000 and 11,000 mg of vitamin C each day.

On the day of her second MMR shot, just a little over a month from the first one, she once again received and comfortably held 24,000 mg of vitamin C. The day after: 19,000 mg. Once again, using bowel tolerance as an indicator, we gradually decreased this dose over the two weeks following this second immunization to an average of 9,000 mg/day. Eventually, we went back to her regular dose of 5,000 mg/day or 1,000 mg/day per year of age, following the recommendation of Frederick Robert Klenner, MD: http://orthomolecular.org/library/jom/1998/articles/1998-v13n04-p198.shtml or http://www.doctoryourself.com/klennerpaper.html.

According to the CDC Vaccine Information Statement we received from our daughter’s pediatrician, the MMR vaccine can cause “mild problems” including fever, rash, and glandular swelling; “moderate problems” including fever-induced seizure and painful joints; and “severe problems” such as serious allergic reactions, deafness, coma, and permanent brain damage. See: http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vac-gen/side-effects.htm

Our daughter did not experience a single one of these side effects from the MMR shots. She had no vaccination reaction whatsoever. She had no fever, no swelling, no nothing. She was (and is) happy and healthy. How would things have gone if she had not been given high-dose vitamin C? We don’t know. And we aren’t about to take chances with potential side effects like coma or permanent brain damage.

Using Bowel Tolerance as an Indicator of “Enough” Vitamin C

Everyone wants to know, “How much vitamin C?” There is no set amount. This is why bowel tolerance is the ideal indicator. When warranted by such events as illness, potential illness, or immunizations, we give our children enough vitamin C to get just to the point of saturation, or loose stool. This is often indicated by a rumbling tummy or some gas. If stools become loose, we decrease how much vitamin C we give. If our children are happy and tooting away, that is just about right. After each MMR shot, our daughter’s body accepted up to 24,000 mg/day of vitamin C. On any other regular day, she would reach bowel tolerance at much lower doses.

To reiterate, we give vitamin C to bowel tolerance when our kids show signs of sickness (runny nose, coughing, sneezing), and before, during, and after immunizations. We get them to bowel tolerance of vitamin C before there is a full-blown illness, and to prevent side effects from vaccinations.

“The titration (bowel tolerance) method or large intravenous doses are absolutely necessary to obtain excellent results. The method produces spectacular effects in all patients capable of tolerating these doses. A placebo could not possibly work so reliably, even in infants and children, and have such a profound effect on critically ill patients.” – Robert F. Cathcart III, MD

This is how we apply Dr. Robert F. Cathcart’s bowel tolerance method: for our five year old daughter, we give oral doses of vitamin C throughout the day in divided doses, beginning the day with a larger “loading dose” (about 3,000 mg) and then give frequent, smaller doses (about 2,000 mg every two hours) right up to about an hour before bedtime. When she was younger, we gave less, and she “held” less. Bowel tolerance is an excellent indicator of “enough” vitamin C no matter how old your child is.

When in Doubt, Give Vitamin C

Our daughter may be a special case. Maybe your child won’t need nearly this much vitamin C. However, knowing the incredible safety and effectiveness of high-dose vitamin C, we are very comfortable giving our daughter what I would like to call “take no chances” sized doses at immunization time.

No, we don’t take chances. We take vitamins. And we take a lot of them.

IBD Infl Bowel disease and Homeopathic remedies

Some great information shared via original post at Hpath.com –
IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease) is a group of inflammatory conditions (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis) mainly affecting the large and small bowel. The distinguishing features of Crohn’s and UC depend on the location and presentation of the inflammatory changes. UC primarily affects the colon and rectum, while Crohn’s can affect any portion of the GI tract from the mouth to anus. The majority of clinical cases affect the terminal ileum (portion connecting the small and large intestine). Furthermore, UC is limited to the mucosa or lining of the gut, while Crohn’s affects the whole bowel wall, resulting in skip-like “transmural lesions.” Unlike UC, Crohn’s is widely regarded as an autoimmune condition.
While the causes of IBD are unknown, symptoms include:
abdominal cramps
gas
bloating
frequent loose stools
tenesmus
fever
weight loss
development of fistula
Secondary complications and symptoms include:
mouth sores
skin rashes
arthritis
IBD typically strikes both genders equally, most often developing during the teenage years or early adulthood. Caucasians, patients of Jewish descent and patients with a family history of IBD are at an increased risk of developing IBD. IBD is most often confused or misdiagnosed initially as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). While both can cause chronic digestive problems, the key feature in IBD is the presentation of inflammation, ulcers and a damaged digestive tract, all of which are absent in IBS.
Several diagnostic tests for IBD are available including barium X-ray, CT, MRI, wbc count, ultrasound and/or colonoscopy.
Homeopathic treatment plans for IBD
In clinical practice I have come across countless cases, in various stages of IBD and have had extremely positive results. The most useful tool in treatment is accurate case taking and history. Many patients typically ignore or neglect key symptoms that help accurately determine the most beneficial remedy or remedies for treatment. Proper administration of the treatment plan, nutritional, and lifestyle advice and patient compliance pay dividends in healing. These are the key remedies in treating IBD that we have implemented successfully

Vaccines contain aborted fetal cells

How Were These Abortions Done? file7301262381465

Dr. Peter McCullough’s book, The Fetus As Transplant Donor: The Scientific, Social, and Ethical Perspectives, reports on the methods used in harvesting fetal tissue in Sweden:*
“They would puncture the sac of a pregnant woman at 14 to 16 weeks, put a clamp on the head of the baby, pull the head down into the neck of the womb, drill a hole into the baby’s head and attach a suction machine to remove the brain cells… At 16 to 21 weeks, they would do prostaglandin abortions where a chemical is injected into the womb causing the woman to go into a mini-labor and pass the baby. Fifty percent of the time, the baby would be born alive, but that didn’t stop them. They would simply open up the abdomen of the baby with no anesthesia, and take out the liver and kidneys, etc.”
Make No Mistake. The Abortions Were Done This Way To Ensure Intact Organs and Tissues For Research.
*Sweden is where the abortions used for cell lines in vaccines currently used in the U.S. took place.
When we talk about the use of aborted fetal tissue in vaccines, one of the things that comes up is that the Catholic Church has approved this, because “the benefit of vaccines, using these aborted fetal tissues, outweighs…” the risk to our soul??? The benefit makes it worthwhile, is basically what they say.
I want to say something about the abortions before moving on. Paul Offit says there were only two abortions involved in the development of the vaccines using fetal tissue… and they happened in the 1960s. Dr. Offit says that’s all they are using. Technically, there were two abortions that were used in developing MRC-5 and WI-38. MRC-5 is from a male aborted baby. WI-38 is from a female aborted baby. So we’ve got both male and female DNA. Hold onto that thought. But here’s the thing… Before they developed those cell lines, they had to find babies that were infected, for example, with rubella. This was in the 1960s. There was a rubella outbreak. They wanted to develop a vaccine. So they scared pregnant women by telling them their babies had been exposed and they would be born with horrible birth defects. They convinced 27 women to abort their babies before they found one baby who was infected with rubella. That’s why the strain that was used in the development of the rubella vaccine is called RA273. R(rubella), A(abortus), 27(number of babies), 3(number of tissue samples taken). All together, there were more than 80 aborted babies involved in the development of the rubella vaccine. So when Paul Offit tells you there were only two? He’s lying. Because he’s a lying liar that lies.


Coconut oil What Mainstream media/bigpharma and the AHA does not want you to know

July 1, 2017

Big Pharma and Mainstream Media Attack Coconut Oil with Mis-information

Coconut oil and fresh coconut on white background

The Public’s Growing Awareness of Coconut Oil’s Health Benefits is Clearly a Threat to Big Pharma’s Drugs

by Brian Shilhavy
Editor, Health Impact News

In what appears to be a coordinated attack against the rising popularity of coconut oil, the American Heart Association (AHA) has just published a “Presidential Advisory” on “Dietary Fats and Cardiovascular Disease” in which it condemned coconut oil, and recommended that people not consume it.

The AHA’s recommendation clearly contradicts research that exists on not only coconut oil but saturated fats in general, which debunks the old lipid theory of heart disease that saturated fat and cholesterol cause heart disease.

Yet, the mainstream corporate-funded media published its recommendations with no critical analysis or journalistic investigations into the AHA’s claims.

Here is an example of the headlines currently published by the corporate-sponsored “mainstream” media and promoted by Google News:

Google News Coconut Oil AHA

Coconut Oil: A Traditional Healthy Fat in the Food Chain for Thousands of Years

Living in the Philippines with my family in the late 1990s, I was able to observe firsthand how cultures like the Philippines who consume coconut oil as their main dietary oil in a traditional diet, a diet high in saturated fat, do not suffer from many of the western diseases in old age as much as westerners, including heart disease.

It led me to investigate this apparent paradox from what I had learned growing up in the U.S., and I soon published my findings on the Internet beginning in 2001. That growing body of research is now documented at CoconutOil.com, and is the Internet’s oldest website on the research regarding coconut oil, and other topics such as saturated fats, cholesterol, etc.

Coconut Oil Health Benefits

The scientific research behind the health benefits of coconut oil and good saturated fats in general is too numerous to reference in this article. We have an entire website documenting that research, and I have written a book about it as well.

Cover image of Virgin Coconut Oil: How it has changed people’s lives, and how it can change yours!

Lipid Theory of Heart Disease: A Theory Thoroughly Debunked by Science

Time-Saturated-fat-Butter-cover-sm

What “journalists” in the corporate-sponsored mainstream media fail to cover when they publish the AHA’s recommendations, is that their recommendations that people not consume coconut oil and saturated fats in general, is based on a belief, not actual science.

The belief is based on the now debunked lipid theory of heart disease, which states that consumption of saturated fats leads to elevated levels of cholesterol, which leads to an increase in heart disease.

Ancel Keyes was the original researcher to put forward this theory, which was later adopted by Congress as part of USDA dietary advice, and his research has been completely discredited. (See: Ancel Keys Was Wrong about Heart Disease and Cholesterol)

Therefore, even the AHA’s “current” studies don’t actually prove that coconut oil is harmful. They start with the basic assumption that high cholesterol levels lead to heart disease, but that theory has never been proved by science, and in fact the science actually points to the opposite, that people with high levels of cholesterol actually live longer than those with low cholesterol. (See also: Japanese Research Exposes Statin Scam: People with High Cholesterol Live Longer)

Cholesterol used to be only labeled as “bad” and something to lower with drugs. But then in more recent times it was divided into two categories, “good” and “bad” cholesterol.

However, even this concept of cholesterol is not entirely accurate, as our bodies need both types of cholesterol to survive. (See: There Is Only One Type of Cholesterol: All of it Beneficial)

Even if one were to continue believing that LDL cholesterol is “bad,” the AHA’s assertion that coconut oil raises LDL and is therefore harmful is without merit, because research on coconut oil shows that it actually raises HDL cholesterol (considered “good”) more than LDL, and that ratio is considered a better heart health marker. Studies show that coconut oil consumption actually increases that ratio favorably, and there are numerous studies now showing that coconut oil is “heart healthy” in the peer-reviewed literature. Here is a sample:

Study: Coconut Oil Helps Hypertension – Science Based Health Benefits of Coconut Oil Keep Increasing

Study: Coconut Oil’s Lauric Acid Reduces High Blood Pressure

Study: Virgin Coconut Oil Effective in Treating High Blood Pressure

Study: Traditional Virgin Coconut Oil High in Antioxidants and Reduces Oxidative Stress in Heart, Kidney, and Liver

New Extensive Research From Sri Lanka Shows Coconut Oil Has No Risk to CVD, and that Coconut Residue has Great Promise for Treating Heart Disease

Coconut Oil is Beneficial for Your Heart: Shining the Truth on Mainstream Media’s Negative Attacks Against Coconut Oil

Are Big Pharma and Mainstream Media Continuing to Attack Coconut Oil to Protect Their Drug Market?

It is a well-known fact that historically drugs designed to lower cholesterol (statins) have been the most prescribed and most profitable drugs in the history of mankind. It is a $100 billion a year industry.

The cholesterol-lowering drug Lipitor is the best-selling drug of all time, grossing over $140 billion, with no serious close competitors in the history of pharmaceutical drugs.

It wasn’t until after the patent on Lipitor ran out, opening the door for cheaper generics to flood the market, that the FDA finally published warnings on the side effects of statin drugs, which include liver injury, memory loss, muscle damage, and Type 2 diabetes.

One out of every four Americans over the age of 50 is taking a statin drug to lower their cholesterol, so this is a huge market that depends upon the success of the lipid theory of heart disease.

One of the best documentaries exposing the statin scam and interviewing doctors in the industry who have exposed it, was published in 2013 on ABC in Australia. The medical authorities were not successful in preventing it from being aired on TV, but they forced ABC to remove it from their website.

We currently are using copies available on YouTube. Take some time to watch these important documentaries produced by medical doctors on the statin drug scam, and be informed!

HEART OF THE MATTER Part 2: The Cholesterol Drug War

Expect Big Pharma and Their Mainstream Media to Continue Attacks Against Coconut Oil

While living in the Philippines in the late 1990s and early 2000s, I was one of the first ones to publish research on the Internet regarding the health benefits of coconut oil. We started using traditional methods to produce a hand-made coconut oil that was not over-refined and mass produced by machine.

By 2002 we were exporting this hand-made coconut oil to the U.S., and we were the first ones to bring a “Virgin Coconut Oil” from the Philippines to the U.S. market.

In 2005 the FDA issued warnings letters against us and Dr. Mercola, who was also selling our Virgin Coconut Oil at the time. They accused us of selling an “unapproved drug.”

We had to hire an expensive attorney to help us through the regulatory issues of marketing this new kind of coconut oil in the U.S., and we were forced to strip all references to scientific studies or customer testimonials about the health benefits of coconut oil from our website Tropical Traditions where the coconut oil was sold.

This was my first experience in understanding how any natural substance that can help or cure disease that is not part of the pharmaceutical industry is suppressed and censored in the United States affecting those who wish to make those products available to the public.

This was the genesis of the Health Impact News website and the Health Impact News network, as we seek to educate the public on news that impacts your health but that the mainstream media is censoring, mainly due to the fact that the pharmaceutical industry is one of the largest sponsors of the dying corporate-based mainstream media.

The mainstream media, in complying with this censorship of life-saving health information, is now a huge danger to public health.

Shortly after the AHA published their recommendations that were then republished without question or journalistic investigation by the mainstream media, I received the following inquiry as editor of Health Impact News:

Coconut oil has saved my life and my Memory! I am very disturbed about all these news reports etc about coconut oil and the raising of BAD cholesterol! PLEASE what are your thoughts or information on THIS subject! LOVE Coconut OIL!

One of the next new huge market potentials for the pharmaceutical industry is developing drugs that treat neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. There is strong evidence that the pharmaceutical industry, with their cholesterol-lowering statin drug products, is complicit with the alarming rise in these neurological diseases, since our brains need cholesterol to function properly, particularly later in life.

With Alzheimer’s disease in particular, people are seeing remarkable results after incorporating coconut oil into their diet. (See: New Alzheimer’s Drugs Continue to Fail Where Coconut Oil Shines.)

So as coconut oil continues to gain popularity and become a threat to dangerous pharmaceutical products, expect the attacks from the corporate-sponsored mainstream media to continue.

Virgin Coconut Oil and Alzheimer’s Disease

In this book we look at the problems and causes of Alzheimer’s as they are related to an epidemic of prescription drugs being marketed to seniors, and we look at the strong evidence for dietary intervention, starting with coconut oil.

We bring you the stories of 10 different families who saw Alzheimer’s lessened or reversed by adding coconut oil to their diet, which is representative of thousands of others who are experiencing similar results. We offer guidelines on usage and types of coconut oil to consider, as well as other non-drug tips for holistic geriatric care.

Our target audience is the millions of caregivers out there loving caring for our senior population who will find it difficult to get this information from their doctors or medical professionals not trained in these areas.

About the author: Unlike many people who write about coconut oil by simply reading about it, Brian Shilhavy actually lived in a coconut producing area of the Philippines for several years with his family, observing firsthand the differences between the diet and health of the younger generation and those of his wife’s parents’ generation still consuming a traditional diet. This led to years of studying Philippine nutrition and dietary patterns first hand while living in a rural farming community in the Philippines. Brian is the author of the best-selling book: Virgin Coconut Oil: How it has changed people’s lives and how it can change yours!


Skin Ailments and homeopathic use

Skin affections are merely local manifestations of some constitutional affection. They represent the effort of nature to get rid of some poison in the system, congenital or acquired, which effort should not be suppressed but abetted. The indications for these remedies will not only aid in this by correction of the soil, but also avoid the dangers of suppression by external  topical applications.

Graphites. [Graph]
our great remedy for all sorts of skin diseases, no doubt often miss-prescribed, and hence frequently disappoints. The symptoms calling for it are very clear; there are moist scabby eruptions on the scalp, face, bends of joints, between fingers and behind the ears. The corners of the mouth and eyes are cracked, bleeding and oozing a gluey, honey-like, thick, tenacious discharge, a fissured eczema is the type. Great itching always accompanies the eruption. The skin may be dry and horny. The hair is dry and falls out. Lycopodium. Dry scaly eruptions. Calcarea carbonica. Eczema on scalp which extends to face. Crusts are white, and on awakening, in the morning especially, the child will scratch furiously.
Arsenicum. [Ars]
A useful remedy in all cases of skin troubles when the skin is thickened, such as in chronic eczema, psoriasis and chronic urticaria. The sensations are itching, burning and swelling, it also has papules, nettle rash and pimples. Burning sensitive ulcers with offensive discharges. It is almost a specific for hives from shell fish, which itch and burn, and for repercussed hives. Pustules form into scabs. Pellagra may find its simillimum in Arsenicum. Bovista. Baker’s and grocer’s itch, and eruption on the back of the hands. It is also recommended in pellagra, also phosphorus and Argentum nitricum. Sepia. Dry desquamation. Ringworm. Rhus. Vesicles on an erysipelatous base. Clematis. Rawness, worse washing, moist eruption.
Sulphur. [Sulph]
The great characteristic of this remedy is the aggravation from washing; this, with scratching, makes the parts burn intensely. The skin is rough, coarse and measly, and there is much soreness in the folds of the skin and a tendency to pustular eruptions. Dryness and heat of scalp, with intense itching, especially at night, and scratching causes soreness; wetting makes it burn. Eczema erythematosum. Eruption of yellow crusts. Eruption at the margin of the hair. Dearborn says Sulphur 6 will cure more pruritus than any other drug. It is our great antiseptic. Selenium. Itching in folds of skin and about ankle joints. Hair falls out with eczematous eruptions. Antimonium crudum. Thick callosities on the skin. Deficient growth of nails. Honey colored crusts on heads of children; cracking in the nostrils and corners of mouth. Antimonium tartaricum. Variola. Impetigo of scrotum. Thuja. Warts and eczema following vaccination. Also an excellent remedy in the higher potencies for acne facialis. Natrum muriaticum. Dry scaly or herpetic eruption of little water blisters in bends of joints, hydroa labialis, fever blisters.

The Natrum muriaticum patient continually suffers from “hang nails.” (Hepar, Rhus, Natrum muriaticum, Arsenicum, cold sores.) Herpes circinatus. Eczema, with thick scabs oozing pus. Urticaria, with itching about the joints when occurring, with intermittent fever worse at seashore. Kreosote. Eruptions on the extensor surfaces of joints. Berberis aquifolia. Scaly pustular eruptions on the face. It is one of the most reliable remedies in the cure of psoriasis. Hydrocotyle. Great dryness and desquamation of the epidermis. Acne rosacea. Its special field is in psoriasis and Dearborn praises it in leprosy. The writer cured a case of inveterate psoriasis universale with this remedy. Dr. H.V. Halbert, of Chicago, considered Thyroidine in the 3X or 30X potency as worthy a trial in psoriasis. He reports excellent results from its use. Indications are a dry and impoverished skin, cold hands and feet. Psoriasis is a pregrowth symptom of cancer. The condition of the skin should always be noted, being the great organ of elimination of poisons. Borax was considered by Dr. McClatchey as curative of many cases of psoriasis, and indeed it corresponds to many symptoms of this disease. Petroleum. Pictures pure eczema with its thick scabs, oozing pus and rhagades; the skin is harsh and dry, the finger tips crack and the hands chap. It is especially suitable to eczema behind the ears. Use the 12X potency.
Mezereum. [Mez]
Baehr considers this remedy the best one in crust lactea. There is great itching, which is worse when the patient is warm or wrapped up. There are small vesicles with terrible itching, and the great characteristic is that the secretion dries quickly, producing scabs from beneath which an acrid thick pus oozes. Crusts and itching are the features. Herpes zoster, with neuralgic pains along the nerves. Nux juglans. Tinea favosa on scalp, behind ears, itching worse at night, preventing sleep.
Rhus toxicodendron. [Rhus-t]
Vesicular eruption characterizes Rhus, so it becomes a remedy in herpes, eczema, pemphigus and prurigo. It is useful in right-sided zoster with extensive vesication and perhaps accompanied with rheumatic pains. The skin is covered with numerous vesicles, there is great itching and tingling, the skin is often swollen and oedematous and these vesicles have a red areola around them. the symptoms are all worse at night, in damp weather and in winter. Rapid vesication and angry-looking skin are characteristics. Apis. More burning and stinging and more oedema. Cantharis. Large blisters with smarting and burning. Croton tiglium. Small blisters with much itching. Hughes says that Croton relieves the itching of eczema rapidly and permanently. Anacardium. Small blisters with an umbilicated center. The eruption itches excessively and burns. The remedy has been used successfully in Rhus poisoning. Dolichos. Itching without eruption. the writer has a number of times verified this symptom. It will sometimes control diabetic itching, and it is especially useful in senile pruritus. Worse at night. Worse across the shoulders. Fagopyrum. Itching worse by scratching. With here and there red blotches which are sore. The hairy portions of the body itch more.

Why vets don’t recognize dog vaccine reactions

Author  Jan Rasmusen

VACCINE

You take your perfectly healthy dog to the vet for “her shots.” Early the next morning, she has a seizure — her first seizure ever. You rush your dog back to the vet or an emergency clinic and ask if the seizure had something to do with the shot.  Odds are, the vet will tell you, No, it’s not the shot! She might have a genetic disorder or possibly even a brain tumor. The timing is just a coincidence.

Or …

your dog is suddenly having trouble walking after a rabies vaccination. Or he suddenly becomes aggressive. You ask your vet if the condition could be tied to the rabies shot. No, it’s not possible, the vet says. He says he has never heard of such a thing. But something tells you the condition and vaccine are related.

Vaccinationimage

Of course, not all veterinarians are reluctant or unable to recognize and deal with vaccine reactions. In fact, the practices of vets trained in homeopathy, Chinese medicine, acupuncture, etc. often revolve around treating reactions caused by vaccination. And, happily, many conventional vets are becoming increasingly worried about over-vaccination and vaccine reactions. But these vets are not the norm.

Many people have written me that they have had to fight with their vet to even get a vaccine reaction considered and noted in their dog’s or cat’s file.  The vet doesn’t even want to call the vaccine maker to report or inquire about the reaction.  After you do extensive Internet research, your suspicions grow. You see another vet, or maybe post on a blog looking for answers or you e-mail me.

You wonder: why are vets so reluctant to admit that a vaccine (or vaccine combo) caused a reaction?

Here are some potential reasons why . . .

Vets Don’t Always See The Reaction

Primary vets don’t see every vaccine reactions because pets are often treated at emergency clinics or by specialists and not reported back. An emergency clinic vet told me about a Basset Hound she had diagnosed with immune-mediated thrombocytopenia. She asked the client if the dog had been recently vaccinated.  Finding that he had, she called the Basset’s primary vet to inquire about the vaccine.  The primary vet, surprised by the call,  asked, “Do you see a lot of immune-mediated disease after vaccination?”  She told him she did, usually about 3-4 weeks later.  Astounded by the news, he admitted he was glad he hadn’t vaccinated his own dogs in 8 years.  He continues to vaccinate clients’ dogs annually.

Vaccination-DNM

Vets Lack Sufficient Education

Dr. Ronald Schultz, a member of the AAHA Canine Vaccination Task Force (in 2003, 2006 and 2011) and the WSAVA Vaccination Guidelines Group, has said: “Our new [vet school] grads don’t know a heck of a lot more about vaccines than our older grads. And I’ve figured out why this is. They know a lot more about basic immunology, but they don’t know about vaccinology and the two are not the same.…  So we haven’t gone very far from where we were ten years ago or twenty years ago with regard to training veterinarians about vaccines.” (Hear Dr. Schultz talking about this in our Safer Pet Vaccination Benefit Seminar DVD.)

Most continuing education is done by drug company representatives calling on veterinary practices — to sell vaccines.  Their message is that vaccines are safe and reactions are extremely rare. Vets buy the products and the message. Despite studies showing that each additional vaccine given during one visit dramatically increases the chance of an adverse reaction, reps peddle products with as many as 7 vaccines to be given at once — with no warnings.  Hear safety claims enough and the claims become the truth, true or not.

Vets Don’t Want The Blame For Harming Your Pet

No veterinarian wants to harm an animal.  It’s more comfortable to blame the problem on coincidence, genetic defects, other medications, etc.

Vets don’t tie the reaction to the vaccine …

… unless it happens almost immediately.  Here is what the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) tells dog or cat owners to watch for after vaccination. Note that most reactions listed are only those happening almost immediately:

Discomfort and swelling at the vaccination siteMild fever

Decreased appetite and activity

Persistent vomiting or diarrhea

Hives

Swelling of the muzzle. face, neck or eyes

Severe coughing or difficulty breathing

Collapse

Respiratory distress occurring 2-5 days after your pet receives an intranasal Bordetella [kennel cough vaccine]

This list fails to include reactions like shock and death – 8.3% and 5.5% respectively of reactions reported to the USDA.  It also doesn’t include vaccine reactions happening within three or more days after vaccination – despite a major study published in the AVMA’s own Journal in 2005.  And what about reactions occurring weeks, months and even years after vaccination?

Here is the list first handed out in 2007 by Dr. Ron Schultz about adverse events known to be induced via vaccines:

commonreactions1of2

commonreactions2of2

Vaccine manufacturers generally test vaccines for reactions for only one year, with the exception of the 3-year rabies vaccine. Testing is expensive so they do only what is required to get approval. After approval, vets seldom report reactions and the USDA rarely takes action unless an inordinate number of animals become seriously ill or die. Even then, vaccines are rarely pulled off the market unless they affect human health. Thus, vaccines are considered safe and reactions don’t really happen!

Vets May Worry They Did Something Wrong

Did your vet fail to tell you about possible reactions? Did he/she vaccinate an unhealthy dog against vaccine label warnings?  Was the vaccine given less than two weeks after another vaccine, increasing the likelihood of a reaction?  Or given with multiple other vaccines or medications? Or given without examining the dog or cat first? Or was the wrong vaccine used? Or had the vaccine been improperly refrigerated?

Vets Aren’t Taught How To Treat Many Dog Vaccine Reactions

Conventional vets generally treat vaccine reactions with corticosteroids, antibiotics (just in case they’re needed) and/or Benadryl no matter what the reaction is.  Conversely, holistic vets treat reactions with diet, supplements, acupuncture, herbs, homeopathy and a whole bag of tricks.  You have to “believe” in reactions to want to learn how to treat them.

Vets Worry They Failed To Get Your “Informed Consent” Before Vaccination

Informed consent means that the vet should have told you about possible reactions and also explained why the shot was necessary before vaccinating.  Unfortunately, the great majority of revaccination of adult dogs is unnecessary and never explained. (See Vaccinating Dogs: 10 Steps to Eliminating Unnecessary Shots.)  If your dog had a vaccine that wasn’t needed and suffered a reaction, your vet might worry about a lawsuit or reprimand from state authorities — or unwanted attention from the media.

Vets don’t want to lose your business.
Vets don’t want to bother reporting the reaction to the vaccine maker.
Despite repeated requests by veterinary organizations to report all suspected reactions, it is suspected that only 1% are reported.  Reporting is time consuming.
Vets are told by superiors not to admit responsibility.
This can be a particular problem for junior members of a practice operating under the rules of the senior partners or practice owner.

Vets Have To Believe Vaccines Are Safe

Vaccines are a big part of veterinary business, both for the direct income from vaccines and the office visit, but also for income from medications and other sales and services stemming from the visit — and also for the income derived from treating reactions.  If they see reaction after reaction, particularly from unnecessary vaccination, they may feel the need to change their policies or change jobs. Please read Lifelong Immunity – Why Vets Are Pushing Back for more details on why veterinarians continue to over-vaccinate.

No matter why your vet isn’t at least considering a vaccine reaction, when something adverse happens after vaccination, it is important to educate yourself.  Allow only those vaccines required given your dog’s age, locale and lifestyle.  Ask to read the package insert to learn about what reactions are possible. (Don’t assume the vet has read it.) Learn to recognize a vaccine reaction and push your vet to consider a reaction if you suspect one. And read What to Do When Your Dog Has a Vaccine Reaction for help in treating your dog, reporting the problem and contacting the manufacturer to try to recover your expenses.

There’s an old medical adage: when you hear hoofbeats, think horses, not zebras.  That is, when something bad happens to your dog after vaccination, think vaccine reaction, not brain tumor! Trust your instincts!
