Alert – Vitamin K Vaccine Warning

The Vitamin K Shot Warnings You May Not Have Heard

Photo by TheLawleysPhoto by TheLawleys

The moment you give birth is the most amazing moment a woman and her spouse can have. And unless you have given a strict birth plan (and sometimes even when you have), you will be faced with the decision to allow the hospital to give your child a synthetic vitamin K shot. We’ve heard lots of stories, from parents who just do whatever they are told, to those who tell the hospital “no” yet still, the hospital gives the vitamin K shot. Mostly, however, we hear of most people not understanding what it is.

So what’s the medical world’s reasoning for administering it?

…it’s essential for helping blood clot appropriately when needed. In newborns, adequate Vitamin K levels are needed to prevent Vitamin KDeficiency Bleeding (VKDB), a rare but life-threatening condition that cause uncontrolled bleeding, sometimes into the brain.

It’s to counter a condition that’s extremely rare.

But what’s in it and is it worth the risks? Well, that’s a decision left to parents. Just know the facts and do the research. Here is some good info to get you started.

Polysorbate 80: This ingredient is not well-tested. Its also a staple of many other vaccines, including DTaP, Gardasil, various flu shots, and Rotavirus.

According to the Material Safety and Data Sheet (MSDS) on ScienceLab.com:

May cause adverse reproductive effects based on animal test data. No human data found. May cause cancer based on animal test data. No human data found. May affect genetic material (mutagenic). Ingestion of very large doses may cause abdominal spasms and diarrhea. Animal studies have shown it to cause cardiac changes, changes in behavior (altered sleep time) and weight loss (upon repeated or prolonged ingestion). However, no similar human data has been reported.

What is the meaning of a healthy diet?

WHAT IS THE MEANING OF A HEALTHY DIET?

The key to a healthy or proper diet is balance. Balance means to have a variety of foods in the correct proportions and to consume adequate amounts of food and beverages in order to be healthy, to have reduced risk of chronic diseases and to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight.

Variety: No food by itself, with the exception of breast milk for about the first six months of life, can provide all the nutrients in the amounts needed for good health. It is important that our eating habits are characterized by a variety of foods. The existence of variety in the diet minimizes the possibility of a significant lack of a nutrient. Even foods that are not recommended to be consumed regularly should not be completely excluded from the diet, as they can provide one or more nutrients (eg meat as a source of vitamin B12). Avoiding certain foods is only recommended in cases of food allergy or intolerance (eg lactose) or genetic or other kind of sensitivity to certain foods (eg G6PD enzyme deficiency that causes susceptibility to the consumption of broad beans).

Moderation: The classification of foods as “good” and “bad” does not fit in the context of a balanced diet and can move many people away from improving their dietary habits. There are no “good” and “bad” foods, rather than foods that need to be consumed more or less often and some that exceed in providing nutrients. All foods have a place in our diet as long as they are eaten in moderation and in appropriate quantities per category. What matters is the overall dietary regimen followed and not individual foods or meals.

Where the classification of good or bad for food comes into play is if your food is pseudo chemical processed lab food that comes in a box or is picked up via a drive-thru window.  All real organic food should be included in the human diet.

Biological or organic foods:  What are they?

Biological or organic foods are products produced in accordance with the rules and principles of biological agriculture and cattle raising, which are based on:

Natural processes, without the use of synthetic chemical fertilizers, pesticides, antibiotics, hormones or enhancers. The use of appropriate production techniques that maintain the natural balance and soil fertility (eg recycling of plant and animal residues, crop rotation).

crop rotation: rotation of cultivation of different crops in the same field

The use of native plants and animal breeds which are adapted to local conditions and are more resistant to the development and transmission of diseases.
The good conditions of breeding and treatment of the animals.

The protection of the environment

From theory to practice – How To Use Plants

How to use the plants and how to consume or apply them on the body. Many home remedies are better when fresh ingredients are used, although some medications may be stored for some weeks in suitable containers, often in cold weather.

There are different forms of preparation which vary according to the intended purpose and are also conditioned by the characteristics of the products:

Infusion: water is heated to boiling and then poured on top of the plant material in a container that can be a cup, sometimes is left to stand for a few minutes and finally it is drunk.

Decoction: In the process of decoction, the herbs are boiled with water to extract the active ingredients from the plant. Generally, this method is used for tougher parts of the plant such as root, stem and the shell. During preparation, the herb is mixed with water in a container that is brought to the boil. The mixture is boiled for a few minutes, normally less than 5 minutes, but can reach 15 minutes, with the container partially capped. After boiling strain the material and is ready to drink.

Juices: are obtained from fresh plant material squeezing the fruit, leaves or roots, and must be consumed immediately.

Cooking and bathing or washing: it is a prolonged cooking of the plant material (during several minutes, far more prolonged than the rapid boiling of tea) and then with the water wash up the affected area or allow to cool slightly this water then dip the affected area in this lukewarm water.

Gargle: do a prolonged cooking of the plant material (as above), allow to cool a little and then make up the throat gargle with this water.

Application of soaked rags: make a long cooking of the plant material (as above), then soak up cloths / wipes (some people refer linen cloths) in that hot water and apply these cloths on the affected area. Keep soaking the cloth in the hot water when they cool down.

Vapors: do a long cooking of the plant material (as above), then this water is placed in a container (bowl, bucket, bowl), and the person places the affected area over it and receives the vapors released by the hot water.

Poultice or plasters: the plant material is applied directly to the affected area and kept there with a patch, a cloth, handkerchief or a bandage.

Direct application: the vegetable material is applied directly to the affected area, but unlike the above, the application is not too long and not is bind.

Syrup: The plant material is typically boiled for a while with honey or sugar resulting in a thick liquid which is usually taken with a spoon (soup, tea, one or a few tablespoons per day, often before eating). It can be stored in a container to consume until is gone.

Maceration: the plant material is placed in a liquid (water, alcohol, spirits) that is put up to stand for a while; in some cases when using alcohol or spirits the solution can be stored in a container (jar) for many months or even years; often the resulting liquid is used to frictions in which the liquid is placed and rubbed into the affected area.

Smokehouse: the plant material is burned (in the fire or coals), the vapours of the burn are allowed to spread around the house, or the person or its cloths are placed to receive these vapors.

Raw Honey

Honey, Spoon, Food

RAW HONEY

Honey contains about 200 substances, including amino acids, vitamins, minerals and enzymes, has bactericidal activity against many microorganisms, accelerates wound healing, has anti-inflammatory and protective effect on gastrointestinal infections caused by bacteria and rotavirus. Honey has been commonly used for treating wounds before the advent of antibiotics but even today, despite the variety of existing antibiotic creams, in some cases, honey may be more effective in treating poorly healing wounds that resist to conventional treatments. By removing moisture from the wound through its high sugar content, honey inhibits bacterial growth and proliferation and blocks the passage of harmful external contaminants. And, as is inexpensive, can be the ideal choice in countries without access to modern medicines for the treatment of wounds. Studies have shown that burns covered with honey heal faster and with less pain and scarring than the burns treated with conventional medicines. There are already on the market curative solutions honey-based for wound care.

OLIVE OIL

  1. Olive oil is a widely used product in the culinary of various countries, is extracted from the olives, grown mainly in the Mediterranean region. Since thousands of years ago that the oil is present in food and is also from antiquity that the medicinal properties of this miraculous oil are recognized. Egyptian women realized that olive oil was an excellent emollient for skin. In turn, the Greeks used the oil extracted from the olives to massage, believing that it had effects on the health of the body and the mind.Today we know that our ancestors were right. In addition to serving as a spice, leaving other foodstuffs tastier, olive oil has many medicinal properties derived from its composition because it has vitamins A, D, K and E, and antioxidants, which slow the aging of cells. The most striking is that even though is a food rich in fat and calories, the oil contributes to the reduction of blood cholesterol levels and also for the reduction of fat accumulation in the abdomen area.
    These benefits occur for its richness in monounsaturated fats, helping to reduce bad cholesterol. Studies published by the American Diabetes Association showed how the regular consumption of olive oil helps prevent fats that accumulate in the belly. It’s not just an aesthetic issue, but also a health issue because fat cells that stick to belly hinder the productio5n of insulin by the pancreas, causing diabetes. Other diseases are also related to the accumulation of fats, such as high blood pressure and cardiovascular problems. Therefore, olive oil intake is highly recommended by medical doctors and nutritionists.

To take advantage of these properties, experts recommend consuming 2 tablespoons of olive oil daily. It is important to remember that olive oil cannot be subjected to high temperatures, as with heating it loses its main properties unless turmeric is added to keep it stable.
