I have been researching vaccines for 3 years now and I would like this post to be an encouragement to those of you who are wondering if your opinion can really make a difference. In such a confusing and broken world, it sometimes seems like our little drop in the ocean doesn’t really mean much. But a light in the darkness always shines brighter than having no light at all. And when hundreds, thousands, hundreds of thousands, and millions of lights all come together, the darkness doesn’t stand a chance.
I’m Rachel and I have the homozygous 1298 MTHFR gene mutation and 3 autoimmune diseases. I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes a month shy of my 9th birthday, in 1996. I also have Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and Celiac disease. My siblings and I were vaccinated according to the schedule, but as my mom went on to have more kids (8 in total, of which I’m the oldest) she began to question vaccines along the way. In 1998, Dr. Andrew Wakefield’s paper was published and my mom got wind of it. My aunt also planted a seed in her mind about the possible connection between diabetes and the MMR vaccine. My mom opted to not give the MMR to one of my little sisters due to my diabetes diagnosis. My other younger siblings also received fewer vaccines than the 4 older kids. The pediatrician that we had been seeing since I was born gave her grief for her choice not to vaccinate, saying she was a horrible mother. She left the practice and never looked back.
When I got married almost 7 years ago, I realized the method I’d been taught about treating my diabetes with a high carb diet and industrial amounts of insulin wasn’t working and decided to take back my health and pursue better blood sugar control for the sake of my future children. That led me to finding Dr. Richard K. Bernstein, a low carb diabetic doctor, and The Life Training Institute, a Christian health program that trains people to pursue holistic healthcare according to biblical principles. In that program, I came across two paragraphs on vaccines, including a section by Sherri Tenpenny.
From there, I went on to hear about the Truth about Vaccines docu-series, which changed my whole understanding about just how awful vaccines are and the corruption that’s working behind the scenes to force them on us. I found several Christian articles and blog posts on the topic of how they go against my faith as a Christian. A whole new world opened up for me and I was so surprised that I had only heard a few people talking about it. But those few people were instrumental drops in the ocean that made a ripple that reached me.
Now I’ve shown my husband The Truth about Vaccines and his mind is being opened to the dangers, risks, and corruption. He was fine with them before, but he’s also a logical, analytical type, and he’s appalled by what he’s learning and can’t agree with injecting me or our kids with anything that hasn’t been proven safe. He is disgusted by the ingredients that are used, and we both can’t stand the fact that babies are being sacrificed on the altar of allopathic medicine.
I am also blessed to have a Christian holistic doctor in my area that expressly told me to not get any vaccines. The fact that I received vaccines as a kid, have the MTHFR gene mutation, and now have 3 autoimmune diseases just adds up in my mind. MTHFR loaded the gun and vaccines pulled the trigger. Thankfully, my doctor is helping me heal and detox from the damage that’s been done.
I plan to protect my kids from vaccines and I pray that you do too. Please don’t ever think that your opinion can’t change someone’s mind. It may be just the thing that does. Wives, you have no idea how influential your opinion can be to your husband. Husbands are called to live in understanding with their wives and love them as they love their own bodies. Tell your husband there is something that is weighing heavily on your mind and you need him to hear you out and investigate the risks of vaccines. You may be the only one who can influence him, so don’t underestimate yourself. Above all, pray that God will open his heart and mind to hear you and your concerns, and change his heart so that it softens towards you. He cannot be an effective leader of the home if he does not have all the facts from both sides, and researching the risks is absolutely essential in making an informed decision. This is how I got my husband’s attention, even though vaccines are a topic of which he is not interested or fond.
Vaccines go against our faith in Christ.
They contain aborted fetal cells, foreign blood and DNA, heavy metals, carcinogens, mutagens, allergens, and other ingredients that are not good for the body and are contaminated in their production process. We do not believe in injecting any of these substances into our bodies. We do not believe in making what is clean “unclean” by vaccinating with ingredients that desecrate the body. We believe that our bodies are the Temple of the Holy Spirit and we are commanded to care for our bodies in a way that brings glory and honor to God. Injecting unwholesome ingredients clearly goes against this belief. We believe that God made our bodies fearfully and wonderfully, and there is nothing we need to do to “improve” on His original design. We believe in strengthening and caring for our bodies naturally without synthetic and chemical drugs.
I am a high risk individual.
My husband has one copy of the 677 MTHFR gene mutation and one of the 1298 mutations. I have a homozygous 1298 MTHFR mutation and 3 autoimmune diseases. This means that we cannot detox very well and are prone to injury from drugs, heavy metals, and toxins. In fact, my autoimmune diseases are vaccine injuries, and they were triggered by the gene mutation after receiving my childhood vaccines.
Who is "susceptible" [to vaccine-induced autoimmunity/injury] is the subject of the paper entitled, "Predicting post-vaccination autoimmunity: Who might be at risk?" It lists four categories of people:
1. those who have had a previous autoimmune reaction to a vaccine,
2. anyone with a medical history of autoimmunity,
3. patients with a history of allergic reactions,
4. anyone at high risk of developing autoimmune disease, including anyone with a family history of autoimmunity, presence of auto-antibodies which are detectable by blood tests and other factors including low vitamin D and smoking.
MTHFR mutations are linked to vaccine injury risk. "The toxins in the vaccine excipient ingredients need to be detoxed back out. They cause oxidative stress in the body because they slow down methylation. Then if a child takes Tylenol it lowers glutathione even more which a person needs to detox. This is why people with MTHFR [mutations] have an issue with shots and tend to be sensitive to medicine. They have trouble making glutathione from lower levels of folate and B complex so their methylation is slower. If methylation is slower immune function is compromised. Methylation literally rules everything in a person's body, whether MTHFR is present or not. Every cell methylates every second. Vaccines hinder that. NIH said to Congress on CSPAN that those with methylation issues are at greater risk for severe vaccine injury."
Vaccines are not safety tested.
They are considered biologics and are not run through the same rigorous trials as drugs. A “vaccinated vs. unvaccinated” study has never been conducted. No one has ever done a double-blind placebo controlled study on single or multiple-dose vaccines given at the same time. The current CDC schedule has never been tested as a whole. Vaccines are tested against adjuvants (or other vaccine ingredients) such as aluminum, first. They are added to the schedule after only a few days of follow-up. Then those vaccines that have been deemed “safe” are used to test against new vaccines.
“Vaccines are a type of ‘unavoidably unsafe’ product; that is, a vaccine is a product that is incapable of being made safe for its intended and ordinary use.” US SUPREME COURT
Vaccine manufacturers have immunity from legal litigation.
They cannot be sued for damages if a vaccine injures or kills someone. “The Court in Bruesewitz notes that NCVIA (National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act) expressly eliminates liability for a vaccine’s unavoidable, adverse side effects:
“No vaccine manufacturer shall be liable in a civil action for damages arising from a vaccine-related injury or death associated with the administration of a vaccine after October 1, 1988, if the injury or death resulted from side effects that were unavoidable even though the vaccine was properly prepared and was accompanied by proper directions and warnings.” 42 U.S.C.A. § 300aa-22(1).
And so, the Court engages in bottom-up thinking, reasoning backwards from its desired outcome. The Court takes as true the premise that vaccines are unavoidably unsafe.”
Vaccines are founded on false science.
The Germ Theory by Louis Pasteur “is the basis of the whole [allopathic] medical model of disease and healing. At the end of his life, Pasteur admitted that his theory was a fraud.” It is, in fact, the Terrain Theory that has been proven to be scientifically sound. This theory states that it is the condition/quality of the terrain in which the germ (bacteria, fungus, virus, etc.) is found that determines the health of the host.
“Most of the germs which enter our bodies from the outside are quickly killed by the immune system. But it is the microorganisms which live permanently in our bodies that cause us to get sick. And they cause sickness because we provide them with a rich growth medium so that they can mutate and transform themselves into deadly bacteria, fungus, and viruses. So you see, whether or not we get sick and die has very little to do with what germ we catch, but has everything to do with whether we keep our bodies free of the dead matter which these germs feed on.”
“Dr. Alec Burton writes, "DO GERMS CAUSE DISEASE? Or could it be the other way around...first, the disease, then the germs. Natural Hygiene contends that germs do not cause disease. They are not the originators. Most diseases occur when people allow themselves to become enervated, that is, low in nerve energy. As a consequence, the organs of excretion fail to function normally and waste material accumulates in the body. When this waste continues to build up, exceeding the body's toleration point, a crisis arises. The body, to offset this overabundance of poisonous matter, begins to react. The result of this reaction is sometimes a cold, the flu, pneumonia, or some such, depending on the individual. At this crisis point of elimination, germs may or may not be present. They are sure to come later, not to attack, but to assist in the cleanup or cleansing process."
Dr. Virginia Vetrano writes, "Hygienists object to the germ theory of disease because germs do not cause disease. They may be present in disease processes, and they may complicate a disease with their waste products which can be very toxic at times, but the germ or virus alone is never the sole cause of disease."” (A Faulty Medical Model: The Germ Theory)
By vaccinating against the germ we think causes the illness (for example, measles virus) we are admitting that we are buying into the false science that the measles virus causes measles when, in reality, a person may be exposed to the virus and never contract the illness. This is especially true if they were exposed in the past and developed natural immunity to it. With a strong immune system and a terrain that prevents the illness from finding nutrition, we prevent the infection or effectively fight it off.
Immunity can never be achieved through vaccination.
“Since vaccines are given by injection, they bypass the normal immune pathway and therefore do not trigger the cellular immune system (TH1), which science shows to be the main component necessary to create immunity.”
“Herd immunity can only come from naturally caught illnesses — NOT from vaccines. Some people may be old enough to remember that just 20 years ago, measles and chickenpox were benign illnesses that, for centuries, were a rite of passage for children.
Herd immunity is only proven in groups where the population was exposed to an illness through the natural immune pathway and has NEVER been proven to exist within vaccinated populations.
Plus, as vaccine inserts clearly state: not all people vaccinated develop an antibody response, which as we now know is not immunity anyway. Therefore the idea of herd immunity through vaccination is pure theory and myth.
Just because it’s contagious doesn't mean it’s deadly. In fact, a lot of research (studies here) shows a health benefit of these typical childhood illnesses — like reducing cancer risk, lowering risk of heart disease and reducing dementia risk.
Vaccines create temporal (short-term) antibodies ONLY. This is the sole requirement from the FDA in order to get approval to sell the vaccine. If you read the vaccine product insert written by the pharmaceutical company that creates the vaccine, it clearly states the increase in temporal antibodies as the basis for proof the vaccine works.
It also gives the percentage of people that had an increase in antibodies after the vaccination. Sometimes this number is quite low in the 50% range, defying any real herd immunity protection theory.
But science has long known that antibodies alone do NOT create real immunity. Some people with high levels of antibodies can be exposed to an illness and still get sick, while others without antibodies can be exposed and not get sick. Dr. Merrill Chase, nicknamed the Grandfather of Immunology for his pioneering work, did clear-cut research on this issue back in the 1950s. His results are clear: antibody levels don’t determine immunity.” (Vaccines and Immunity: What Does The Real Science Show?)
Vaccines cannot offer lifelong immunity (which is why boosters are given) and do not work on everyone (some people have no immunity of any kind after vaccination). Vaccines bypass the body’s normal immune system (through inhalation) and work by suppressing the TH1 branch of your immune system (which is responsible for defending against cellular viruses, bacteria, yeast, and cancer) and overstimulating your TH2 branch (which responds to toxins, allergens, normal bacteria, and parasites). This causes an imbalance in the immune system, modifying the reactivity of the system toward TH2 dominance, resulting in autoimmune disorders and susceptibility to catching more illnesses.
