THE DANGERS OF HOMEOPATHY -VS- THE DANGERS OF VACCINATIONS
Belladonna is a green, leafy plant that happens to be one of the most famous (or infamous as the case may be) of the family known as NIGHTSHADES (this family also contains potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, paprika, and tobacco). It's a vasodilator that was used in antiquity to dilate the pupils of women who wanted to appear sexy, and help them get their "come hither" look on. It also happens to be the main ingredient in a compound called Atropine, which is used as a drug to slow the heart rate, reverse certain kinds of chemical poisoning, as an eye medication, as well as helping to reverse various forms of HYPER-SYMPATHETIC NERVOUS SYSTEM REACTIONS. It also happens to have such a wide array of known side effects, I won't even begin to list them here.

WHAT ARE HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES?
Our professor, a man whose name I have long-forgotten (Curlile, Curnutt?????), explained to the class of about three hundred that the bridge collapsed because it had a frequency / resonance that was too close to the frequency / resonance of the wind. Although frequency is a simple concept, resonance is a bit more difficult to understand. Wikipedia describes it thusly...
"In physics, resonance is a phenomenon in which a vibrating system or external force drives another system to oscillate with greater amplitude at a specific preferential frequency. Increase of amplitude as damping decreases and frequency approaches resonant frequency of a driven damped simple harmonic oscillator. Frequencies at which the response amplitude is a relative maximum are known as the system's resonant frequencies or resonance frequencies. At resonant frequencies, small periodic driving forces have the ability to produce large amplitude oscillations, due to the storage of vibrational energy. Resonance occurs when a system is able to store and easily transfer energy between two or more different storage modes (such as kinetic energy and potential energy in the case of a pendulum). However, there are some losses from cycle to cycle, called damping. When damping is small, the resonant frequency is approximately equal to the natural frequency of the system, which is a frequency of unforced vibrations. Resonance phenomena occur with all types of vibrations or waves: there is mechanical resonance, acoustic resonance, electromagnetic resonance, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), electron spin resonance (ESR) and resonance of quantum wave functions. Resonant systems can be used to generate vibrations of a specific frequency (e.g., musical instruments), or pick out specific frequencies from a complex vibration containing many frequencies."
The thing I want you to realize is that everything ---- everything --- whether living or non-living, has a frequency and a resonance; right down to every sub-atomic particle. That's cool, but what is really cool is found in the last sentence, "Resonant systems can be used to generate vibrations of a specific frequency." Plainly stated, this means that if you can figure out how to control the resonant system in some form or fashion, you can do some amazing things. For some that might mean MAKING INCREDIBLE MUSIC (OR HERE) (or even HERE). For others, it might mean using this information to for healing (HERE'S AN EXAMPLE THAT EVERYONE CAN UNDERSTAND)
Although I don't really practice in this manner, I actually took a couple of classes under the brilliant (and unconventional) BERT HANICKE while I was at Logan (many of us called him "The Magic Man"). Although I will not do it justice as far as an explanation, he had a way of measuring the frequency / resonance of sick people as well as the frequency / resonance of their "disease". He would then treat distilled water with the same machine, creating a sine wave (a wave with the peaks and valleys exactly opposite the original frequency), using it to energetically "neutralize" said disease. The thing is, while many dismissed Dr. Hanicke as an eccentric intellectual (he was certainly intellectual, but was amazingly down-to-earth), he not only cured himself of lung cancer, but had actually trained under the brilliant Dr. Voll. According to the bio on Biontology Arizona.....
"In the late 1940’s, Dr. Reinhard Voll, a German medical doctor and engineer began researching an innovative testing method now known as EAV (Electroacupuncture According to Voll). This method was documented and proven, in over a decade of hospital studies in Germany and today is widely used throughout Europe by over 25,000 medical practitioners. In the United States, it is currently growing in acceptance particularly by medical practitioners who specialize in “Alternative, Holistic and Biological Medicine” techniques and disciplines. It is an “Energetic” assessment of the individual. And while all the organs, glands and complex systems in the body are physical and chemical in nature, there is also an unseen component to them and this is called the Energetic System."
In our neck of the woods, Dr. Herbst (OVER IN VAN BUREN) uses a Vega Machine. By placing various test vials of either healthy organ tissue as well as diseased organ tissue of various sorts into the circuit, astute practitioners can evaluate a patient electrically / energetically, and actually measure the changes in resonance electrically. The newer machines are all computerized, so instead of needing hundreds (or even thousands) of test vials, all resonance frequencies are stored on the computer (remember that everything, whether living or non-living has a specific frequency). What's doubly amazing is that you can actually test against your particular health problem against any number of remedies and see how they resonate with your body. But there were people doing similar long before Dr. Voll came on the scene.
Developed by the German medical doctor, Samuel Hahnemann around 1800, Homeopathy was an early form of "energy" medicine. Although our government derides Homeopathy as QUACKERY, the National Institutes of Health define it as.....
"Two unconventional theories: “like cures like”—the notion that a disease can be cured by a substance that produces similar symptoms in healthy people; and “law of minimum dose”—the notion that the lower the dose of the medication, the greater its effectiveness. Many homeopathic remedies are so diluted that no molecules of the original substance remain. Homeopathic remedies are derived from substances that come from plants, minerals, or animals, such as red onion, arnica (mountain herb), crushed whole bees, white arsenic, poison ivy, belladonna (deadly nightshade), and stinging nettle. Homeopathic remedies are often formulated as sugar pellets to be placed under the tongue; they may also be in other forms, such as ointments, gels, drops, creams, and tablets. Treatments are “individualized” or tailored to each person—it is not uncommon for different people with the same condition to receive different treatments."
I bring this up to take you back to Belladonna --- the controversial ingredient in Hyland's teething tablets. Because homeopathic remedies are always diluted; often to the point where there is nothing left but the "energetic" fingerprint that is for all intents and purposes, negligible enough not able to be measured using current technology. This is true of the Belladonna. In fact, Hylands dilutes it, according to the ingredient list found on their website, "12X HPUS (0.0000000000003% alkaloids, calculated). As calculated, this means that each complete teething tablet contains only approximately 0.0000000000002 mg of Belladonna alkaloids. The amount of Belladonna alkaloids in teething tablets is minuscule, especially when compared to conventional medicines that contain Belladonna alkaloids. To put the calculated amount of Belladonna in a Hyland’s Baby Teething Tablet into perspective, the 0.0000000000002 mg of Belladonna alkaloids is THOUSANDS OF TIMES below even the therapeutic amounts of Belladonna used in conventional anti-spasmodic medicines [MUSCLE RELAXERS] that doctors sometimes prescribe (0.2 to 5 milligrams of Belladonna alkaloids)." In English, this means there are 2 ten-trillionths of a milligram of Belladonna in their product.
The first lesson in all this is never underestimate the brain power of a good German (HERE is another recent example). The second lesson; everything (EVEN YOUR THOUGHTS) have physical properties such as frequency / resonance. The third lesson is that no matter how safe something is, there will always be complaints that it isn't --- maybe even legitimate complaints. Case in point, the September FDA warnings about potential health-risks from consuming Hylands Teething Tablets. In a PRESS RELEASE from last September, the FDA said...
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is warning consumers that homeopathic teething tablets and gels may pose a risk to infants and children. The FDA recommends that consumers stop using these products and dispose of any in their possession. Homeopathic teething tablets and gels have not been evaluated or approved by the FDA for safety or efficacy. The agency is also not aware of any proven health benefit of the products, which are labeled to relieve teething symptoms in children. Consumers should seek medical care immediately if their child experiences seizures, difficulty breathing, lethargy, excessive sleepiness, muscle weakness, skin flushing, constipation, difficulty urinating, or agitation after using homeopathic teething tablets or gels.
One of two things are true. Either homeopathic remedies are totally worthless because the amount of active ingredient has been diluted to virtually zero, or they actually do do something, potentially causing some children to react (Sheila Kaplan wrote an article on the subject yesterday for STAT). My point here is that while my family had fantastic results with this product, I don't want to marginalize anyone that not only didn't, but had a physical reaction --- some of which were alleged to result in seizures and even several deaths. But if we believe that Teething Tablets can cause the problems listed in the paragraph above, how much more so for vaccines?
Society (particularly the press) has started labeling anyone that questions the safety and efficacy of any vaccine as an "ANTIVAXXER". Honestly, this is a totally incorrect moniker since I don't know of anyone who is against you doing whatever you want to do as far as VACCINES are concerned. There are many people, however, concerned enough (dumbfounded might be a better word) at the continued use of known neurotoxins like ALUMINUM in all vaccines, and MERCURY in many of them, that we believe we should speak out. Not necessarily against vaccines, but for the freedom to choose. Because if you don't stand up, WHERE WILL IT END?
Couple this with the massive numbers of vaccines infants, children, and adults are being bombarded with from cradle to grave, and many (self included) see the potential for a NEUROLOGICAL and AUTOIMMUNE tsunami --- exactly what you see when you look around you. When it comes to healthcare (vaccines included), studies are showing that what people want most (HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS INCLUDED) is the freedom to choose. That freedom started being eroded over a century ago with the publication of the Flexner Report.
THE FLEXNER REPORT, commissioned by the government, but essentially the work of the wealthiest man on the planet; JD Rockefeller (Abraham Flexner was the brother of Rockefeller's right hand man), set in motion the gears that would intentionally / purposefully grind (or at least attempt to grind) all non-allopathic forms of medicine (including both homeopathy and CHIROPRACTIC -- or HERE) to dust. For the record, it was a vaccine from one of Rockefeller's pharmaceutical holdings that was the recipient of our nation's first "mandatory" legislation concerning a vaccine (as you might imagine, the Rockefeller were big wheels in both NY and national politics, as well as in the formation of HEW and the UN). Also for the record, the earlier B&W pics are of defunct homeopathic medical schools from the turn of the century.
If Teething Tablets are truly dangerous, they need to be taken off the market. But when we talk about dangerous substances routinely given to infants and children, we can't leave without discussing DRUGS. Have you seen the stats on how many people die of ASPIRIN each year? Or TYLENOL? Or IBUPROFEN? The truth is that drugs are crazy dangerous. In fact, the prestigious British Medical Journal (HERE) recently declared "medicine" to be the third leading cause of death in America. But what about vaccines? Aren't they in this same mix as well?
As for the whole vaccines-are-safe----now-sit-down-and-shut-the-hell-up argument, how can we possibly trust the research when it's been proven time and time again that Big Pharma finagles it in every conceivable way --- always for the purpose of putting their products in a favorable light (HERE are slews of posts on the subject)? And lastly, I'm not sure how you dismiss the hundreds of websites around the web of parents warning other parents what happened to their children after getting vaccinated. I've never personally heard of someone having a reaction to any homeopathic remedy, let along teething tablets. But in my twenty five years in practice, I have seen lots of children whose parents and grandparents (farmers, bankers, nurses, business owners, and even PHYSICIANS) who know only one thing for certain ---- that their children were normal before their shots.
If you are interested in seeing how both childhood vaccines and antibiotics might arguably prevent and "cure" some childhood diseases on the front end, while actually causing some of the vary same diseases as well as all sorts of inflammatory diseases (INCLUDING CANCER) on the back end, just follow THIS LINK.
