Children and Alternative Medicine

The NY Times today shared a studio about children and their use of alternative medicine. Not surprisingly, the single most influential factor driving children’s adoption of alternative therapies appears to be whether their parents also use them.

More children need to use alternative therapy and leave the vaccine-crazed regular medicine alone!

There is a new book out "The History of the Peanut Allergy Epidemic" by Heather Fraser.

Heather meticulously documents how the peanut allergy epidemic is entirely manmade and caused by peanut oil in vaccines.

In case you are unaware, the peanut allergies that our vaccinated children are getting can be fatal if the child doesn't have an epipen handy or hospital emergency room. Just smelling peanuts (don't make peanut butter cookies!) can cause an anaphylactic reaction.

Right now 1 in 125 children have the dreaded peanut allergy. Our medical community has its head in the sand saying it must have been caused by being too clean...

But the reality is the FDA and WHO declared refined peanut and soy oils to be GRAS (generally recognized as safe) and said it was VOLUNTARY for the pharmaceutical firms to list those GRAS items on the package inserts.

The pharmaceutical firms have NOT volunteered the information and our government has protected the information with international trade secret law so even the Freedom of Information Act will get you no where.

The risk of getting a lifelong food allergy that can KILL you is much greater than the risk of all the diseases that all the vaccinations are supposed to prevent.

And in case you don't know how many vaccinations the kids get these days... nearly sixty by age twelve. Plenty of opportunity to get a bad batch of vaccine with peanut protein in it!

Slowly in this country (America) people are once again learning the value, cost effectiveness and credibility which comes from many alternative therapy treatments.

Alternative medicine saved my life about 30 years ago (after decades of conventional medicine being unable to come up with any relief at all). No one anywhere near my part of the country even knew what I was talking about. I pretty much lived at a library then, wrote letters to anyone I could find would listen and return answers to me. I was in no position financially to go running around a country trying to find someone to listen. So I researched and built my own treatment plan from what I learned.

Ideas slowly became suggestions and those possibilities did become workable solutions. The fact I am here is proof positive of that statement.

So, if you have reached that point when conventional medicine is not giving you any solutions, finding a holistic approach which may help is far easier in today's society than it was a quarter century ago.
