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

Olive Oil

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.

 

Lemon – Citrus limon

Lemon, Citrus, Fruit, Yellow, Tropical, Nutrition

LEMON (Citrus limon)
Lemon has a high level of Vitamin C (which increases the immunological activity), stimulates appetite and has a slight antibacterial and antiviral effect and is particularly important during colds and flu because its mucolytic qualities allow anti-inflammatory effect. It helps to increase the resistance of the veins and arteries and regulate blood pressure, and it is also effective in reducing calcium deposits (kidney stones or bladder).

According to Dr. Reams a 9:1 ratio for lemon water medicinally shoud be taken daily.

Note: 9 parts pure filtered water to 1 part organic lemon

Garlic – Allium sativum

GARLIC (Allium sativum)

Clinical evidence of the value of garlic, both on the prevention and the treatment of many diseases, is justified both by its content of minerals and vitamins and for its therapeutic effects as well as by the presence of some substances capable of reducing the levels of lipids and blood cholesterol. Garlic also functions as a hypotensive agent that helps control blood pressure without causing side effects. It has Selenium – a mineral that protects the heart, preventing the formation of atheroma, which leads to clots, and normalizing blood pressure.

The garlic also has allicin, alina, both with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.

Dangers of Statin Drugs

Dangers of Statin Drugs: What You Haven’t Been Told About Popular Cholesterol-Lowering Medicines

Cholesterol

Of course, statins inhibit the production of cholesterol–they do this very well. Nowhere is the failure of our medical system more evident than in the wholesale acceptance of cholesterol reduction as a way to prevent disease–have all these doctors forgotten what they learned in Biochemistry 101 about the many roles of cholesterol in the human biochemistry? Every cell membrane in our body contains cholesterol because cholesterol is what makes our cells waterproof–without cholesterol we could not have a different biochemistry on the inside and the outside of the cell. When cholesterol levels are not adequate, the cell membrane becomes leaky or porous, a situation the body interprets as an emergency, releasing a flood of corticoid hormones that work by sequestering cholesterol from one part of the body and transporting it to areas where it is lacking. Cholesterol is the body’s repair substance: scar tissue contains high levels of cholesterol, including scar tissue in the arteries.

Cholesterol is the precursor to vitamin D, necessary for numerous biochemical processes including mineral metabolism. The bile salts, required for the digestion of fat, are made of cholesterol. Those who suffer from low cholesterol often have trouble digesting fats. Cholesterol may also protect us against cancer as low cholesterol levels are associated with increased rates of cancer.

Cholesterol is vital to proper neurological function. It plays a key role in the formation of memory and the uptake of hormones in the brain, including serotonin, the body’s feel-good chemical. When cholesterol levels drop too low, the serotonin receptors cannot work. Cholesterol is a major component of the brain, much of it in the myelin sheaths that insulate nerve cells and in the synapses that transmit nerve impulses.

Some researchers believe that cholesterol acts as an antioxidant.2 This is the likely explanation for the fact that cholesterol levels tend to go up with age. As an antioxidant, cholesterol protects us against free radical damage that leads to heart disease and cancer.

Finally, cholesterol is the precursor to all the hormones produced in the adrenal cortex including glucocorticoids, which regulate blood sugar levels, and mineralocorticoids, which regulate mineral balance. Corticoids are the cholesterol-based adrenal hormones that the body uses in response to stress of various types; they promote healing and balance the tendency to inflammation. The adrenal cortex also produces sex hormones, including testosterone, estrogen and progesterone, out of cholesterol. Thus, low cholesterol–whether due to an innate error of metabolism or induced by cholesterol-lowering diets and drugs–can be expected to disrupt the production of adrenal hormones and lead to blood sugar problems, edema, mineral deficiencies, chronic inflammation, difficulty in healing, allergies, asthma, reduced libido, infertility and various reproductive problems.

Enter the Statins

Statin drugs entered the market with great promise. They replaced a class of pharmaceuticals that lowered cholesterol by preventing its absorption from the gut. These early drugs often had immediate and unpleasant side effects, including nausea, indigestion and constipation, and in the typical patient they lowered cholesterol levels only slightly. Patient compliance was low: the benefit did not seem worth the side effects and the potential for use was very limited. By contrast, statin drugs had no immediate side effects: they did not cause nausea or indigestion and they were consistently effective, often lowering cholesterol levels by 50 points or more.

OXYGEN MINERALS

MANAGE HEALTH NATURALLYOXYGEN MINERALS – Prevention ~ First Defense

A study of the periodic table of elements shows sulfur, selenium, and tellurium as being the only three oxygen transport minerals. Further study shows that chlorine and fluorine are detrimental to such oxygen transport, yet these elements have been added to make our teeth “healthier” and our water “more pure” or free from bacterial infestation. These elements are poisonous at higher concentrations, and they block the uptake of both oxygen and sulfur. Drinking city tap water is discouraged in the Study for this reason.

The Study believes that a widespread deficiency in the mineral sulfur may be responsible for the great increase in disease in the U.S. Healthy cellular metabolism is the basis for cellular regeneration of all of our cells. This is the bottom line for the human body. Without intracellular oxygen, we begin to degenerate long before our biological clock runs out.

Antioxidants and Free Radicals

MANAGE HEALTH NATURALLYAntioxidants and Free Radicals

Antioxidants are a group of compounds that are produced by the body and that occur naturally in many foods. Antioxidants work together in the body to maintain our health and vigor well into our later years. They do this by protecting our cells and tissues from damage caused by free radicals. The body produces free radicals in the normal course of energy production but there are also substances in our environment, such as, certain chemicals, smoke, pollutants, solar radiation that trigger the production of free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage cell structures and ultimately lead to cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, cataracts, arthritis, and many other ailments associated with aging can be aggravated by free radicals. Free radicals perform many critical functions in our bodies, from controlling the flow of blood through our arteries, to fighting infection and they keep our brains sharp and in focus. A key to good health and in slowing down the aging process would be to maintain a healthy balance between antioxidants and free radicals. That is the job of the body’s antioxidant defense network.

Water is Important

MANAGE HEALTH NATURALLY   WATER IS IMPORTANT

Water all other nutrients are found through this medium, and we cannot live without it. The human body is 60% water and as late as 32 weeks of gestation, the baby’s body is 80% water.  Water is something that is greatly taken for granted and is crucial for good physical health, especially if you are elderly or an expectant mother.

We often do not consider the healing power of water and do not realize
that many health issues are directly related to drying ourselves out,
better known as, “dehydration.”
 

Water is vital to these functions:

  • Helps control body temperatures
  • Lubricates and cushions joints
  • Keeps the skin healthy
  • Helps remove toxins from the body
  • Helps Circulation
  • Essential for digestion, absorption, and elimination

Here’s a list of some very common chronic health problems associated with dehydration that many people can relate to, including myself:

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome                                     Adult-onset Diabetes

Arthritis                                                                     Asthma

Heartburn                                                                 Kidney Stones

Lupus                                                                        Migraine

Depression                                                               Colitis

Back Pain                                                                        Cataracts

High Blood Pressure                                               Muscular Dystrophy
High Cholesterol                                                     Multiple Sclerosis

 

Proper water drinking:  

  • Only 4 ounces every 30 minutes and half your body weight in ounces per day
  • Facilitates the removal of worn-out cells.
  • Restores the hydration needed for mineral absorption.
  • Removes the salts and excess urea (nitrate and ammonia) that can lead to heart attacks
  • Sets the stage for efficient digestion of your foods.
