Vaccinate or not…

Posted by: admin  /  Category: Health

A very interesting article from Dr, Mercola

My opinion is it should be the parent’s choice..

USA Today1 recently ran an editorial under the headline, “Vaccine opt-outs put public health at risk” and called for elimination of personal belief exemptions in state public health laws, including those that require children to get dozens of doses of up to 15 vaccines in order to attend daycare and school.

“When vaccination rates are very high, as they still are in the nation as a whole, everyone is protected. Diseases such as polio, smallpox and measles are wiped out,” the editorial claims.

“This ‘herd immunity’ protects the most vulnerable, including those who can’t be vaccinated for medical reasons, infants too young to get vaccinated and people on whom the vaccine doesn’t work.

But herd immunity works only when nearly the whole herd joins in. When some refuse vaccinations and seek a free ride, immunity breaks down and everyone is more vulnerable.”

Not Sharing the Risks of Vaccination = Selfish?

The editorial goes on to claim that outbreaks of infectious diseases such as measles are due to the “selfish decisions” of a few, who take vaccine exemptions and place everyone else in the “herd” at risk.

The answer, the editorial board says, is to eliminate personal belief vaccine exemptions from state public health laws and presumably force all children and adults to get every government recommended vaccine. The article finishes off with the curious statement:

“Everyone enjoys the life-saving benefits vaccines provide, but they’ll exist only as long as everyone shares in the risks.” [Emphasis mine]

I call it curious, because nowhere in the editorial did they actually address the issue of health risks associated with vaccines, which is one of the primary reasons for having personal choice in the first place. If safety and effectiveness of the product could be guaranteed, fewer people would have major objections.

Also noteworthy is the editorial board’s statement that herd immunity protects “people on whom the vaccine doesn’t work.” Right there, they admit that vaccination isn’t a foolproof disease prevention strategy. Vaccines can and often do fail to prevent disease.

What USA Today Didn’t Tell You

What they don’t spell out clearly is that the risk of vaccine failure must be weighed in along with the potential risk of harm from the vaccine. That inconvenient truth is cleverly hidden amid inflammatory rhetoric designed to get people to rally against those pesky free-thinkers who have the audacity to do their own risk-benefit analysis.

While the USA Today editorial board admits that there are health risks associated with vaccines and vaccines don’t always work, they still insist that people should not be free to make their own choices when it comes to vaccination. Why?

Apparently, their reasoning goes like this: the only way to have any hope of success in eradicating disease is by forcing everyone to blindly accept the known and potential unknown risks of vaccination.

And since there are risks – even though the newspaper’s editors only acknowledge risk briefly in their OpEd – the only way they say mass vaccination policies are “fair” is by mandatorily distributing the risk across the entire population.

The simpler argument is that it is done for “The Greater Good” and opting out is therefore proclaimed to be “selfish,” which is an old utilitarian rationale that can be challenged on ethical grounds.

Sadly their reasoning is irrational. For starters, the premises of vaccine-induced immunity and herd immunity are both fundamentally flawed, and the medical literature is full of scientific evidence of this—none of which is ever mentioned in newspaper OpEds designed to make you fear and intensely dislike anyone who wants to make well informed, independent vaccine choices for themsleves and their children.

The theory of vaccine-acquired herd immunity, which is regularly used as a justification for forced vaccination, is based on the premise that it will work the same way naturally-acquired herd immunity works. The only problem is that itdoesn’t. For a refresher on herd immunity, and the differences between vaccine-induced and naturally-acquired immunity, please refer to my previous article “Expert Pediatrician Exposes Vaccine Myths.”

Leave Parents Free to Choose Vaccines

Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder and president of the non-profit National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) wrote an editorial opposing USA Today’s call for an end to personal belief vaccine exemptions in state laws. She noted that US health officials now recommend twice as many vaccines compared to three decades ago.

If you follow the recommended vaccine schedule, your child will receive no less than 69 doses of 16 vaccines. Up to 15 of those vaccines are mandated by different states. Yet despite this cornucopia of “preventive medicine,” American children are among the sickest in the developed world.

“With 95 percent of US kindergarteners fully vaccinated and one child in six learning disabled, one in 10 asthmatic and one in 50 living with autism, educated parents and health care professionals are asking legitimate questions about why so many highly vaccinated children are so sick,”Fisher writes.

“They’re examining vaccine science shortfalls and wondering why Americans are coerced and punished for declining to use every government-recommended vaccine while citizens in Canada, Japan and the European Union are free to make choices.

Vaccines carry two risks: a risk of harm and a risk of failure to prevent disease. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention admit that US pertussis outbreaks are not due to a failure to vaccinate but failure of the vaccine to confer long-lasting immunity…

When doctors cannot predict who will be harmed by a vaccine and cannot guarantee that those who have been vaccinated won’t get infected or transmit infection, the ethical principle of informed consent becomes a civil, human and parental right that must be safeguarded in US law. Non-medical vaccine exemptions immunize individuals and the community against unsafe, ineffective vaccines and tyranny.”

Fortunately, judging by the newspaper’s reader polls, few Americans agree with the USA Today editorial board. In fact, 82 percent of readers (as of this writing) “strongly disagree” with the editorial. In contrast, 85 percent of readers “strongly agree” with Fisher’s “pro-vaccine choice” rebuttal. Clearly, most Americans who took the time to cast their vote expressed strong opposition to the newspaper’s “anti-choice” stance and were not fooled by the same old emotion-based propaganda. And that’s good news.

Is Mass Vaccination Causing Unforeseen Consequences?

When it comes to vaccination, there are a lot of unanswered questions. Some of these questions include:

  • Could injecting up to 69 doses of various vaccines into a child beginning on the day of birth and throughout childhood create immune system problems over the long term?
  • What are the multi-generational effects of forcing our immune systems to react to vaccines rather than naturally-occurring pathogens? One recent study2 found that women who received the Tdap vaccine during pregnancy had children whose immune responses to vaccination was far weaker compared to children whose mothers were not vaccinated.

Animals that are not yet weaned are typically not vaccinated as the mother’s milk is known to interfere with antibody responses to vaccines. Many animals are titered to ensure they don’t receive excessive vaccines, as the side effects are well known. As explained by veterinarian Dr. Jean Dodd:3

“A titer test is a simple blood test that measures a dog or cat’s antibodies to vaccine viruses (or other infectious agents). For instance, your dog may be more resistant to a virus whereas your neighbor’s dog may be more prone to it. Titers accurately assess protection to the so-called ‘core’ diseases (distemper, parvovirus, hepatitis in dogs, and panleukopenia in cats), enabling veterinarians to judge whether a booster vaccination is necessary. “

So, we’re titering animals but not children? There are plenty of reasons not to accept a mandated one-size-fits-all vaccination policy: the right to self determination being first and foremost. The decision to participate in a medical intervention or experiment that carries serious risks, whether the risk is high or low, should belong to each individual person, including parents of minor children who are legally and morally responsible for protecting their children.

The Case for Reasonable Doubt

What is some of the evidence raising reasonable doubt about the “reasonableness” of forced vaccinations? How about the following:

    • Environmental toxins can reduce vaccine efficacy. Research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) suggests that exposure to perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) prior to, and after birth, can significantly weaken the effectiveness of vaccines. PFCs are found in countless products, including non-stick cookware and food wrappings, personal care, and cleaning products, just to name a few. If poorly regulated environmental pollutants can dramatically decrease vaccine effectiveness, then that means your risk-to-benefit ratio of vaccination is automatically skewed toward higher risk and lower benefit. As reported by ABC News:4

“The study found that higher levels of PFCs in both mothers and children meant lower numbers of disease-fighting antibodies in the children. Mothers who had twice the level of PFC in their blood had children with a 40 percent decrease in the number of antibodies formed after getting the diphtheria vaccine. The 7-year-old children who had doubled PFC levels had nearly a 50 percent reduction in their antibody levels.”

    • Vaccinated people are asymptomatic carriers of disease, and can still both spread and contract the disease. Mounting evidence shows that vaccinated people can actually unknowingly be infected with and spread diseases like pertussis (whooping cough) for which they were vaccinated. This was shown in an FDA baboon study5 last year, which concluded that while the pertussis vaccine can cut down on serious clinical disease symptoms, it does not eliminatetransmission of the disease. As noted by the lead author of the research, when the baby baboons were newly vaccinated with either DPT or DTaP vaccines, they were asymptomatic carriers of pertussis and could infect others in their community.

Needless to say, if vaccinated people can be asymptomatic carriers of disease, this can place everyone at risk and really raises questions about the wisdom of vaccinating health care workers before permitting them to work with high-risk populations. Vaccinated people can still contract the disease because (a) most vaccine-acquired artificial immunity istemporary,6 and (b) because microbes can evolve to evade the vaccines.

For example, 97 percent of those who contracted mumps during the outbreak in Ohio earlier this year were fully vaccinated7against the disease. Some are quick to say that “sure, vaccinated people can contract the disease—if exposed; which is why no one should be allowed to opt out of vaccination.” However, when a vaccinated person can contract the disease from another vaccinated person… this entire argument clearly falls apart.

    • Flu vaccination raises your risk of contracting more serious flu illness. Research published in 2012 showed that theflu vaccine increases your risk of contracting more serious pandemic flu illness,8 such as H1N1. This supported previous findings, such as that from a 2011 study,9 which found that the seasonal flu vaccine actually weakened children’s immune systems, thereby increasing their chances of getting sick from influenza viruses not included in the vaccine. Unvaccinated children actually built up more antibodies against a wider variety of influenza virus strains than the vaccinated children.
    • Vaccines promote disease mutations. Vaccines have also been found to place pressure on microbes to developmutated versions of the disease, and/or enhance the ability of other similar strains to become more dominant and cause disease. For example, a veterinary vaccine study10 at the University of Melbourne (Australia) found that using two different vaccine viruses to combat the same disease in an animal population quite rapidly caused the viruses to combine (referred to as recombination), creating brand new and more virulent viruses.

In Australia, dangerous new strains of whooping cough bacteria were reported in March 2012.11 The vaccine, researchers said, was responsible. The reason for this is because while whooping cough is primarily attributed to Bordetella pertussisinfection, it is also caused by another closely related pathogen called B. parapertussis, which the vaccine does NOT protect against.

Two years earlier, scientists at Penn State had already reported that the pertussis vaccine significantly enhanced the colonization of B. parapertussis, thereby promoting vaccine-resistant whooping cough outbreaks.12 According to the authors, vaccination led to a 40-fold enhancement of B. parapertussis colonization in the lungs of mice, and the data suggested that the vaccine may be contributing to the observed rise in whooping cough incidence over the last decade by promoting B. parapertussis infection instead.

Fraudulent Research Does Not Inspire Confidence

Please understand that efficacy of a vaccine relates to its ability to produce an antibody and this is NOT at all a good marker for whether or not immunity has been achieved, while effectiveness measures the ability of the vaccine to actually protect against infection. So let’s look at the basic effectiveness of vaccines, and the reliability of the research backing up effectiveness claims. On a number of occasions, outright fraud has been revealed, raising serious doubts about whether or not the stated benefit—the ability of the vaccine to prevent disease—is even part of the risk-benefit equation. If not, you’re taking on risk with very minimal, if any, benefit.

Case in point: in 2012, two former Merck virologists sued their former employer, claiming Merck overstated the effectiveness of the mumps vaccine in the company’s combination MMR shot. A federal antitrust class action lawsuit was also filed that year, in which Merck was accused of falsifying test results and selling millions of doses of the vaccine that were of “questionable efficacy.”

Clearly, vaccine effectiveness has a major bearing on disease outbreaks, and it would appear as though many vaccine failures are simply covered up by blaming outbreaks on the unvaccinated population. This way, ineffective vaccines can still be sold, while everyone’s busy tarring and feathering those who have opted out of using every government recommended vaccine. You know, those who “selfishly” choose not to “share in the risks.”

Another example: in 2012, a systematic review13 of pre- and post-licensure trials of the HPV vaccine showed that the vaccine’s effectiveness is not only overstated (through the use of selective reporting or “cherry picking” data) but also unproven. According to the authors: “[T]he widespread optimism regarding HPV vaccines long-term benefits appears to rest on a number of unproven assumptions (or such which are at odds with factual evidence) and significant misinterpretation of available data.”

2013 HPV vaccine effectiveness study also turned out to have significant discrepancies, raising doubts about the veracity of its conclusions. Upon closer scrutiny, the data actually revealed that unvaccinated girls had the best outcome. Furthermore, records obtained last year through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) revealed that the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has so far awarded nearly $5.9 million to 49 victims for harm and/or death resulting from the HPV vaccine.

According to an April 7 report by WCPO News,14 the VAERS database has received more than 31,000 reports of adverse reactions to the HPV vaccine Gardasil. This is up from May 13, 2013, at which point VAERS had received 29,686 adverse event reports (including 136 deaths, 922 reports of disability, and 550 life-threatening adverse events). Is it reasonable to doubt the safety and efficacy of Gardasil? Ask Tracie Moorman, whose 15-year-old daughter Maddie became too chronically ill to attend school after receiving the HPV vaccine. “If I ever could have a do-over, it absolutely would be this situation,” Tracie told WCPO in a recent interview.

Vaccinated vs. Unvaccinated: Who’s Healthier?

Large studies comparing the health outcomes of vaccinated versus unvaccinated children have not been a priority for vaccine researchers. This is a travesty, as this is the kind of research most desperately needed. Most vaccine studies are about developing more vaccines for children and adults to use.

Some claim that studies comparing the health of highly vaccinated and unvaccinated children cannot be done because it would be “unethical” to leave children participating in the study unvaccinated in order to do the comparison. But since some American parents are already delaying or avoiding vaccinating their children, this hardly seems like a reasonable excuse. It is more likely that comparing the health of vaccinated and unvaccinated children in appropriately designed studies are avoided because the results might upset the proverbial apple cart.

However, that doesn’t mean there is a total absence of evidence about the health of vaccinated versus unvaccinated children to give us an indication of whether or not the use of many more vaccines by children in the U.S. is contributing to so many being chronically ill and disabled. In December 2010, a survey was initiated by to compare the health of vaccinated children with unvaccinated children. The survey is ongoing, so if you would like to participate, you can. Though this is obviously not a double-blind controlled study, and depends on the individuals submitting the data to give accurate information, it is still revealing. At the time of this writing, the results show:

Health Condition Prevalence in Vaccinated Children Prevalence in Unvaccinated Children
Allergies 36.71% 11.25%
Asthma 14.23% 2.26%
Hay fever 17.86% of German children 3%
Neurodermatitis (an autoimmune disorder) 23.9% 7.5%
Attention deficit disorder (ADD) 14.94% 1.28%
Middle ear infections 20.84% 7.5%
Sinusitis 12.14% 2.5%
Autism 7.43% 0.49%

Do You Want the Right to Choose Vaccination for Yourself and Your Child?

So, what do we know, and what can we be sure of? One thing that appears to be beyond dispute, based on overwhelming evidence that spans across decades, is that pharmaceutical companies have repeatedly demonstrated their willingness to bribe, lie, threaten and commit fraud in order to bring, and keep, their products on the market. This kind of behavior is so commonplace, it appears to be part and parcel of the accepted modus operandi of the drug industry, albeit unofficially.

So, based on what you know, do you think parents should have the legal right to choose whether or not to give their children every one of the dozens of doses of 15 vaccines that health officials mandate for infants and children attending school and daycare? Do you want that right to know and freedom to choose for yourself which vaccines you are going to get?

I cannot impress upon you strongly enough the importance of your active involvement when it comes to defending our legal right to make informed vaccine choices in America. In order to protect the health of as many children as possible, we cannot continue to ignore the signs that using vaccines as the nation’s primary disease prevention strategy may have been taken too far in the past three decades – to the point that we’re now seeing the health of too many children and adults being compromised..

When you follow the money, you realize that multi-national drug companies marketing vaccines and the organizations they fund are the ones pulling the political strings to eliminate non-medical vaccine exemptions in U.S. state laws. Eliminating the freedom to know and right to choose nationwide would be a major coup by a pharmaceutical industry already making huge profits from vaccine laws that require every person born in America to purchase and use their products. At the same time, the safety of vaccine policies are primarily based on the word of these very companies that not only have their products mandated but also enjoy a liability shield from vaccine injury lawsuits in civil court that was given to them by Congress and the Supreme Court!

Is any of this really wise?

No Time to Waste – Take Action Now

The non-profit National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) has been working for 32 years to prevent vaccine injuries and deaths through public education and defend the informed consent ethic in vaccine policies and laws. NVIC is leading a grassroots movement to secure and protect broad medical, religious, and conscientious belief vaccine exemptions in state public health laws to prevent parents of minor children and adult workers from being discriminated against and harmed by “no exceptions” mandatory vaccination policies.

On NVIC’s Cry for Vaccine Freedom Wall, you can read (and post) first-hand accounts of threats and coercion by pediatricians, government officials, and employers harrassing and punishing Americans for refusing to get every government recommended and mandated vaccine. It is heartbreaking to read how many people are being bullied into using vaccines against their will – even individuals who have already suffered vaccine reactions and injuries!

In the past few years, states like Washington, Oregon and California have restricted the use of non-medical exemptions and theColorado legislature is currently debating similar legislation. NVIC has testified and has educated families and helped them testify in public hearings in those states.

To become active in your state and make sure your community and elected officials are fully informed about the importance of protecting vaccine exemptions in state laws, sign up for the free online NVIC Advocacy Portal. You will be notified by email when vaccine legislation is moving in your state to restrict or expand vaccine exemptions. You will also be put into direct electronic contact with your own elected officials and can let them know your views with a touch on your smart phone screen or a keystroke on your tablet or computer. If we all stand up for our right to know and freedom to choose the way we want to stay healthy – including whether or not we choose to use vaccines – we will be protecting a fundamental right we cannot afford to lose.

The articles I write and re-post are primarily about my health and the dangers of accepting “western medicines“ solution to an illness  by advocating a pharmaceutical drug. This attitude is to address a symptom rather than the cause of the problem. I try to spread the word that this method of allopathic treatment does nothing other than perpetuate  the sickliness of millions of people and  ridiculous profits of big pharma.


I was wondering if some people know I’m sick and think “how can he be recommending a particular course of action, it’s not as if he’s really healthy and is telling people to do things when its obvious he hasn’t”.


So I thought I’d address this possible opinion, yes I do have MS but in the main I’m healthy, I don’t get sick. I haven’t had a cold or the flu in more years than I can remember, at least 10.

I was diagnosed with MS in Feb 04 and refused to take the drugs they recommended. The neurologist told me I would be totally wheelchair dependent within 6 months. that didn’t happen and even now after going through a very stressful last 2 years in the states after losing my job and struggling to survive financially I still only use a wheelchair if I have to get around outside.


The knowledge and experience I gained from the 3 ½ years with Dr Huggins who is generally accepted as No 1 in the world is quite extensive. I studied other specialists like Drs.Thomas E Levy, Weston A Price and Melvin Page.


I didn’t get MS because I was eating the wrong foods or drinking to excess, I got MS because my immune system was overloaded with toxins and simply said I can’t protect you anymore.

So how did this happen? well I had a nasty fall in Florida and smashed my face into a concrete step. My face looked horrendous (just ask my brother and sister in law) the dentist fixed my broken teeth with four root canals and several amalgam fillings.


An amalgam filling is what most dentists will refer to as silver fillings, when in reality they are high copper amalgam filling, 33% copper, mercury and silver. So what has that got to do with my MS? The first commercially placed amalgam filling was in 1865 in Paris, France. The first official case of MS was also in 1865 in Paris and the same person that had the amalgam. Dental authorities who are headed by the ADA (American Dental Association) will deny this fact and say it’s just a coincidence, it’s not a coincidence  it’s true.


In the USA  people constantly see advertising and commercials for one new drug or another and here in England 99% of GP’s will prefer to give you a prescription for a drug rather than advising you on natural remedies and lifestyle changes which would be far better for you long term.


The Pharmaceutical industries pay multi millions promoting the latest fix and they make billions from the worldwide sale, so much of the so called research hasn’t been done by independent researchers, no its been done by the pharmaceutical industry and  manipulated to show positive findings.


Nearly 20 percent of corporate crime is being committed by companies that make products for your health. Crimes committed by some of the top pharmaceutical companies include fabricated studies and hiding damaging research


A number of recent articles and books have delved into the practices of the drug industry, concluding it operates like an organized crime ring


Corruption of science is one of the most dangerous forms of corruption. Doctors rely on published studies to make treatment recommendations, and large numbers of patients can be harmed when false findings are published


A recent study concluded that a majority of American drug commercials—60 percent of prescription drug ads, and 80 percent of ads for over-the-counter (OTC) drugs—are either misleading or outright false


Warnings of adverse side effects in drug ads can backfire. While initially making viewers cautious, over the course of time people tend to ignore the warnings; some even see them as indications of honesty and trustworthiness.


So coming back to the question of my qualification to advise and make suggestions, I’m not diagnosing anyone I’m simply passing on my opinion based on what I believe to be valuable knowledge. That being the case then “yes” I do think I’m qualified to share my opinion.

 Follow me:

No I’m not being paranoid…

By Dr. Mercola

A groundbreaking new drug safety study in Shanghai, China, provides some much needed information about the frequency of vaccine drug reactions among children.

Adverse drug reactions are a serious public health concern and one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide.1 More than a half million children are treated every year for adverse drug reactions in US outpatient clinics and emergency rooms.2

The Shanghai study, based on reported pediatric adverse drug reactions (ADRs) for 2009, found that 42 percent were caused by vaccines, with reactions ranging from mild skin rashes to deadly reactions like anaphylaxis and death. Of all the drugs causing adverse reactions among children, vaccines are the most commonly reported.34

This study is particularly significant because the vast majority of reports came from physicians, pharmacists, and other health care providers. Less than three percent of the reports were from consumers.

Another safety report5 about pediatric drug reactions was just published by the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) and lists the top 15 drugs causing serious adverse reactions in children.

Psychiatric drugs and analgesics (especially ibuprofen) figure prominently in their top 15 list. The report also mentions psychological side effects such as aggression and suicidal ideation as frequent symptoms from 10 of the 15 most commonly reported drugs.

Drugs and Vaccines Are More Dangerous for the Very Young

Three major trends emerged in the Chinese drug reaction study:

  • Gender: Males (60 percent) were represented more than females (40 percent)
  • Age: Young children were more susceptible to harm; 65 percent of the adverse drug reactions were reported for children age 5 and under, and about 40 percent involved children aged 2 months to 2 years. The highest proportion of serious reports was for newborns (0 to 1 month). The ISMP and other researchers have confirmed that the number of adverse drug reactions is highest in the first year of life—so parents of newborns, beware!6
  • Polypharmacy“: The more drugs a child is exposed to, the higher the proportion of serious reactions; drug-to-drug interactions (DDI) are increasingly problematic with today’s practice of “polypharmacy”(using two or more drugs together)

Vaccine reactions are very difficult to detect because often, multiple vaccines are given together, with synergistic toxicities and multiple adverse interactions occurring, which makes it hard to know what is causing what. Vaccine reactions are also notoriously underreported, as many physicians brush off symptoms as mere “coincidence,” denying they have anything to do with vaccination.

The Chinese researchers made the following statement about why they believe vaccines are causing so many adverse reactions:

“The ADR rate caused by vaccines is much higher than other drugs, and this may be related to the types and number of vaccinations being used in China, as the types of routine immunization vaccines in China reach up to 15 kinds, which is much higher than seven kinds in India and Vietnam, nine kinds in Thailand and 11 kinds in America, and most of the vaccines in China are attenuated live vaccines, which may bring a greater potential safety hazard.”

High Infant Mortality and High Infant Vaccine Rates—Are They Related?

The US has one of the highest infant mortality rates in the developed world. Yet, American infants are given the greatest number of vaccines—26 doses of vaccines by the end of their first year. Can this really be a coincidence? If vaccines were doing a good job at safeguarding children’s health, the US should be enjoying extremely low infant mortality, shouldn’t it?

Acute adverse reactions that are actually reported are just the tip of the iceberg. There are many more deleterious effects when you consider post-vaccination brain inflammation (encephalitis) and encephalopathy, immune dysfunction, paralysis, and other long-term health sequelae that have been causally related to both live attenuated virus and inactivated vaccines around the world, especially the types used in developing nations. The tragic results of this are poignantly illustrated in the featured study.

If your child’s immune system is not functioning properly, he or she may be more susceptible than the average child to suffering a serious vaccine reaction. The unfortunate part is, currently there are few ways to determine in advance whether or not your child has normal immune function or has other biological, genetic, or environmental risk factors that greatly increase individual susceptibility to suffering harm from vaccinations.

This means that an adverse vaccine reaction may be your first indication your child’s immune system is vulnerable to atypical manipulation by vaccines —and sadly, in some cases, the brain or immune system damage caused by vaccination is severe and permanent. According to Dr. Kelly Brogan, one of the most fundamental problems with today’s vaccine paradigm is that vaccine safety has not been studied—much less proven: “The current schedule has never been studied – not one vaccine in a vaccinated vs. unvaccinated design, let alone multiple delivered at once, or the entire long-term effects of 49 doses of 14 vaccines by age 6.”

The Government Gives Vaccine Manufacturers a Free Pass

In 1988, Congress passed a law shielding physicians and vaccine manufacturers from vaccine injury lawsuits. Prior to this law, most doctors were much more cautious about giving vaccines to children who had a prior adverse vaccine reaction—for fear of being sued.

For example, the whole cell pertussis vaccine in the DPT shot was notorious for causing seizures, high pitched screaming, and collapse shock due to brain inflammation. Prior to 1988, pediatricians were warned not to give the DPT to children who had a history of seizures in the first 72 hours following a DPT. But now that doctors and vaccine manufacturers are protected from lawsuits, vaccine reactions are regarded as “less significant,” even “coincidental”… of course, they’re NOT insignificant when it’s your child who is having one! The vaccine manufacturers and physicians are being taken care of… but who is protecting your child?

A Fundamentally Flawed Concept of Immunity

Vaccine manufacturers would like you to believe that the “immunity” you receive from vaccines is equal to or better than what is conferred through natural exposure to the infection, but this simply isn’t the case. There are important differences between naturally acquired immunity and temporary vaccine-induced antibody production. Vaccines are never 100 percent protective because they provide only artificial, temporary, typically inferior immunity compared to what your body would receive from natural exposure to a disease.

Immunity is a complicated process with many moving parts—immunological, neurological, and endocrinological—not the dumbed down version the pharmaceutical industry feeds to the public. The common reductionist notion that immunity involves nothing more than a simple antigen-antibody response is a gross oversimplification—not to mention the arrogance that, with a vaccine, they can improve on a biological process that Nature has been perfecting for thousands or even millions of years. Take measles, for example. According to Dr. Suzanne Humphries:7

“Since most vaccines are delivered by injection, the mucous membranes are bypassed and thus blood antibodies are produced but not mucosal antibodies. Mucosal exposure is what contributes to the production of antibodies in the mammary gland. A child’s exposure to the virus while being breastfed by a naturally immune mother would lead to an asymptomatic infection that results in long-term immunity to that virus. Vaccinated mothers have lower levels of virus-specific antibodies in the serum and milk, compared to naturally immune mothers, and thus their infants are unprotected.”

Prior to the vaccine era, mothers were naturally immune to measles and passed on that immunity to their infants via placenta and breast milk. But vaccinated mothers cannot pass along vaccine-induced “immunity” because of the issue described above. As a result, infants whose mothers were born after 1963 are more susceptible to measles than are infants of older mothers. For a healthy child with normal immune function, measles is not a deadly disease—in fact, 30 percent of measles cases among the unvaccinated are missed because they are so mild.8

It should also be noted that the recently reported pertussis (whooping cough)9 and mumps outbreaks10 have occurred predominantly among the vaccinated –and measles “outbreaks”11 have also involved vaccinated persons —invalidating claims that vaccinated people cannot get sick from or transmit infectious diseases. The fact that a lot of vaccinated people still get sick is a prime example of how getting vaccinated is not a “good health” guarantee. In fact, keeping your immune system healthy through good nutrition, exercise, reduction of stress, and limiting exposure to environmental toxins is a much better strategy for staying well and also for helping you to heal more quickly if you do get sick.

The Truth About Herd Immunity

Download Interview Transcript

One of the most commonly parroted sound bites in the vaccine debate is the term “herd immunity,” tossed around by vaccine advocates who don’t really understand the concept. They suggest that if 95 percent or more of the population can be made “immune” to an infectious disease via vaccination, the disease will be eradicated or controlled. Despite these claims, there is little proof that vaccines are responsible for eradicating diseases even when “herd immunity” vaccination levels are reached. Recent outbreaks of common diseases like measles are evidence of this.

Overvaccination not only exposes people to potentially dangerous adverse reactions, but it may damage the health of the greater community. Take varicella zoster (chickenpox), for example. According to Dr. Humphries:12

“Prior to the universal varicella vaccination program, 95 percent of adults experienced natural chickenpox (usually as school aged children)—these cases were usually benign and resulted in long term immunity. This high percentage of individuals having long term immunity has been compromised by mass vaccination of children, which provides at best 70 to 90 percent immunity that is temporary and of unknown duration—shifting chickenpox to a more vulnerable adult population where chickenpox carries 20 times more risk of death and 15 times more risk of hospitalization compared to children. Add to this the adverse effects of both the chickenpox and shingles vaccines, as well as the potential for increased risk of shingles for an estimated 30 to 50 years among adults.”

A young child with active chickenpox, who comes into contact with an adult who had chickenpox as a child, is giving the adult a natural “booster” that will not cause symptoms but will strengthen the adult’s immunity to the disease. But since the introduction of the chickenpox vaccine in 1995 in the US, followed by chickenpox vaccine mandates in the states, there are fewer natural boosters for the adult population. Now, there is a shingles (herpes zoster) epidemic among adults – and Merck is the sole producer of both chickenpox and shingles vaccine in the US!

Vaccines Invite New Strains to the Party

Vaccines are having the unintended effect of creating new strains and more virulent strains of disease, in a similar way as antibiotic overuse has led to antibiotic resistance. The B. pertussis organism that causes whooping cough has evolved to evade the DPT/DtaP vaccines that have been used worldwide since the early 1950s. A mutated B. pertussis strain has emerged and is associated with severe symptoms.13

Sometimes, the pressure placed by vaccines on an organism causes non-vaccine strains to become more dominant. This is true of some of the more than 80 pneumococcal strains that are not contained in pneumococcal vaccines (Prevnar-7 and Prevnar-13), and have become prevalent since the vaccines were introduced in 2000.14 Some of these non-vaccine strains are now causing severe disease. This phenomenon is a direct result of the pressure on the organisms to adapt and survive.

The point is, even if vaccines were somehow miraculously able to eradicate all of our most dreaded infectious diseases, it’s only a matter of time before new versions will appear—and potentially with heightened virulence! Life has a way of finding a means to survive. And you will be less prepared to fight off these new invaders if your immune system is compromised, as it can be from vaccines. With that in mind, vaccination may very well be promoting infectious disease, rather than eliminating it.15

If you are thinking there MUST be a better way to stay healthy than continuously adding new vaccines, you are right! There is no complicated recipe, no extensive protocols… just good basic lifestyle choices. Eat well, sleep well, exercise effectively and consistently, manage your stress, and avoid toxic exposures whenever possible. Making a few lifestyle adjustments will allow you to build your health naturally, including your resistance to illness. And of course, we can all benefit from the support and care of a good physician!

Finding an Enlightened Physician

If you are a parent, it’s up to you to find a doctor you can trust who will avoid administering vaccines in the face of previous vaccine reactions. Don’t be afraid to stand up for your right to protect your child. There are enlightened pediatricians who take a “precautionary approach” because they care about preventing adverse reactions, injuries, and deaths. It’s your health, your family, your choice.

Search until you find a compassionate and knowledgeable health care practitioner who will work with you to make the best decisions for you and your family. If you are the parent of a newborn, be extremely careful with all drugs and use them ONLY if absolutely necessary. As you have seen, infants are the most vulnerable. If you or your child experiences an adverse reaction to a drug or vaccine, please consult your physician immediately and report it to VAERS, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, and encourage your physician to do the same.

Protect Your Right to Informed Consent and Defend Vaccine Exemptions


With all the uncertainty surrounding the safety and efficacy of vaccines, it’s critical to protect your right to make independent health choices and exercise voluntary informed consent to vaccination. It is urgent that everyone in America stand up and fight to protect and expand vaccine informed consent protections in state public health and employment laws. The best way to do this is to get personally involved with your state legislators and educating the leaders in your community.


National vaccine policy recommendations are made at the federal level but vaccine laws are made at the state level. It is at the state level where your action to protect your vaccine choice rights can have the greatest impact. It is critical for EVERYONE to get involved now in standing up for the legal right to make voluntary vaccine choices in America because those choices are being threatened by lobbyists representing drug companies, medical trade associations and public health officials, who are trying to persuade legislators to strip all vaccine exemptions from public health laws.

Signing up for NVIC’s free Advocacy Portal at gives you immediate, easy access to your own state legislators on your Smart Phone or computer so you can make your voice heard. You will be kept up-to-date on the latest state bills threatening your vaccine choice rights and get practical, useful information to help you become an effective vaccine choice advocate in your own community. Also, when national vaccine issues come up, you will have the up-to-date information and call to action items you need at your fingertips..

So please, as your first step, sign up for the NVIC Advocacy Portal.

Share Your Story with the Media and People You Know

If you or a family member has suffered a serious vaccine reaction, injury or death, please talk about it. If we don’t share information and experiences with each other, everybody feels alone and afraid to speak up. Write a letter to the editor if you have a different perspective on a vaccine story that appears in your local newspaper. Make a call in to a radio talk show that is only presenting one side of the vaccine story.

I must be frank with you; you have to be brave because you might be strongly criticized for daring to talk about the “other side” of the vaccine story. Be prepared for it and have the courage to not back down. Only by sharing our perspective and what we know to be true about vaccination will the public conversation about vaccination open up so people are not afraid to talk about it.

We cannot allow the drug companies and medical trade associations funded by drug companies or public health officials promoting forced use of a growing list of vaccines to dominate the conversation about vaccination. The vaccine injured cannot be swept under the carpet and treated like nothing more than “statistically acceptable collateral damage” of national one-size-fits-all mandatory vaccination policies that put way too many people at risk for injury and death. We shouldn’t be treating people like guinea pigs instead of human beings.

Internet Resources Where You Can Learn More

I encourage you to visit the website of the non-profit charity, the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), at

  • NVIC Memorial for Vaccine Victims: View descriptions and photos of children and adults, who have suffered vaccine reactions, injuries and deaths. If you or your child experiences an adverse vaccine event, please consider posting and sharing your story here.
  • If You Vaccinate, Ask 8 Questions: Learn how to recognize vaccine reaction symptoms and prevent vaccine injuries.
  • Vaccine Freedom Wall: View or post descriptions of harassment and sanctions by doctors, employers, school and health officials for making independent vaccine choices.

Connect with Your Doctor or Find a New One that Will Listen and Care

If your pediatrician or doctor refuses to provide medical care to you or your child unless you agree to get vaccines you don’t want, I strongly encourage you to have the courage to find another doctor. Harassment, intimidation, and refusal of medical care is becoming the modus operandi of the medical establishment in an effort to stop the change in attitude of many parents about vaccinations after they become truly educated about health and vaccination.

Die Off..

Posted by: admin  /  Category: Health

April 25th       As each day comes and goes I spend a lot of time in thought about my plans to restore my health, am I right in doing this the way I am, or am I wrong for not allowing pharmaceutical drugs into my body. It seems the only constant is the inconsistency of improvements. Each day, after an hour or two has passed and the overall feelings and symptoms have either changed from the previous day I ponder about the supplements and dosage, should I increase or decrease the dosage or completely eliminate them.


I suppose I have to be positive really, I’m not feeling worse or if I do it’s only a temporary thing lasting for a few hours. Like this morning, I was awake at 6.15 and soaking in my magnesium chloride bath at 7.00. Afterwards I noticed minor improvements in my clearness of thought but getting ready totally wore me out. The weakness throughout my body was terrible, just putting my socks on was difficult and moving around the flat was a challenge.


Breakfast is normally a protein shake with fruit which is blended together, I normally make a flask of tea and I prepare two 1 litre bottles of filtered water with himalayan crystal salt (sole) this and  getting my supplements for the day takes about an hour. This might not seem much for most people but for me I felt drained and needed to rest for an hour. Normally I’d be good  but today I was totally worn out for several hours.


This is when I started to doubt myself but fortunately after eating, drinking another litre of water I returned to being tired but bearably so. Knowing what I know I should have more confidence in myself and expect the “die off” period and not be so surprised or doubt myself.


Part of this process is keeping accurate records, a journal like this helps keep track of the sometimes delicate and subtle changes.

Hmmm, interesting..

Posted by: admin  /  Category: Health

I sometimes get confused by changes in my health, be it positive or negative. I’ll spend a long time in thought trying to remember what I’d eaten the previous day or which supplement I’d missed or taken more of.

This is when being able to have blood tests on a regular basis would help a great deal in identifying the specific reason. But sadly that can’t happen, I don’t have the money to do it and even if I did it’s just not practical or accessible here in England. Back in Colorado I could get get blood drawn in 20 minutes and receive the results a few days later. Using Life Extension for the testing was very affordable and convenient but those facilities aren’t available here so I’ll stick with the “try it and see” method. Don’t get me wrong, this is not a complaint, just an observation and the reality is that I’m in a much better place physically and mentally here than I was 18 months ago and for that I’m eternally grateful. I honestly believe that if I’d stayed in the states I wouldn’t be alive today. God bless mum and Suzie and Deb’s of course.


Anyway these comments are down to the fact that I feel great this morning, my balance is good and the process of getting ready for my day was significantly easier this morning. Massively better than yesterday and better and easier than it’s been for a long time.

I’d like to think the various supplements and exercises are playing a big part in this but this isn’t a question i can  answer  just yet. I’ll have a better idea as the days and weeks go by, but for now I’ll stick with what I’m doing, make no changes to the supplements or dosage and see how I feel.

Apple Cider Vinegar..

Posted by: admin  /  Category: Health

Back in 2009 I was working as the client service director for Dr.Hal Huggins in Colorado Springs in the beautiful state of Colorado, the city is 6100 ft above sea level  and at the foot of the amazing Rocky Mountains.


Each day I would speak with up to 25 people, some just asking questions, some clients and some patients. It was an interesting, fulfilling, rewarding and often traumatic role to be in. I loved helping people especially those that called in what they perceived to be the last resort.


Often I’d talk with people suffering from cancer or MS or ALS and they had been told by their doctors there was no hope. So calling us they learnt that the disease they were suffering from could well have been initiated and perpetuated by dental work.


They would explain they’d had the disease for a number of years or that they had just been diagnosed, They may have read about Dr.Huggins and how he’d been able to help hundreds and thousands of similarly affected people.


One day I took a call from a nice lady who introduced herself as “Pat”, her initial question was simply about amalgam fillings and if there was any documented proof of their toxicity and subsequent danger.


We talked for the best part of an hour, when the caller showed a significant interest I would feel obligated to share my knowledge. We talked extensively about amalgam fillings, root canals and cavitations. I explained in great depth of how the blood was affected and the significant changes in body chemistry.


Normally I wouldn’t have gone into such depth but Pat appeared to soak it up and asked more and more questions. At the end of the call Pat told me she was so grateful and said she wanted to send me a book as a gift. I explained it wasn’t necessary but she insisted.


A week later a box probably 15” by 15” by 10” arrived for me, my first thought was that I’d ordered something although I couldn’t recall anything, as it was late in the day I didn’t open the box until I got home. Opening it I was quite surprised to see 3 bottles of apple cider vinegar drink, two large bottles of Bragg apple cider vinegar and three books by Dr.Paul C Bragg and Patricia Bragg Phd N.D..


I was only when I started reading one of the books that I noticed an inscription written by the author which read.


Thank you Stefan for all your time, please accept this gift.



It was only then I realised that the Pat I’d been talking to for an hour explaining the significance of dentistry and body chemistry re-balancing was actually

Patricia Bragg Phd N.D.


At first I felt a little embarrassed but then I felt quite proud of myself to have explained what I did without being criticized or doubted by such an amazing woman.

Flying by the seat of my pants…

Posted by: admin  /  Category: Health

As each new day brings potential hope for me I tend to be happy to go to bed knowing that the new day might be a day of pleasant surprises, I think because I’ve had this crappy illness for ten years officially and some symptoms for four years prior to diagnosis, I’ve got used to experiencing the pain, weakness and instability. It doesn’t make it any less painful but I’ve convinced myself it won’t be forever, so I just suck it up.


So thanks to my amazing mother who bought some magnesium chloride last month and Claire…ahh …Claire I’m able to follow a protocol of my own choosing incorporating magnesium chloride soaks for 90 minutes and mega doses of the tablets.


I know some people would suggest doing this every day and comment that you can’t have too much of a good thing. Sadly that isn’t true, actually it’s the opposite really. I liken this to eating food, if you looked at the amount of food you eat in a month and tried to eat it in one sitting you wouldn’t be physically able to do it. Your body simply couldn’t cope, you would feel like you were going to explode and your liver, kidneys, gallbladder, spleen and heart would overload then give up.


So my tablets are daily but the soaks are every other day, today was a soak day. As I’ve said before this protocol has me flying by the seat of my pants. I gauge how I feel over a period of time of taking or doing something. Everyone is different, yes we all have the same organ’s which do the same job but no two people function exactly the same, not even identical twins.


Today my soak was for just over an hour but with 6 cups of mag chloride not the four as my previous soaks. The bath water is hot but not too hot and I’ve noticed subtle but very definite changes. I’d like to be specific about the time but I think it comes down to the ability of my body to absorb the magnesium,


Today after about 50 minutes the feeling in my legs, more so in my left which is the side that suffers most, felt a very pronounced tingling similar to the feeling you get as blood flows back into a limb after you’ve been sleeping on it. It actually felt good experiencing it, being able to wiggle my toes and raise the leg out of the water.


It’s a long laborious method but I have to try, it can be a little frustrating but it’s either this or giving up and that’s not happening.

My new magnesium chloride tablets just arrived so this will improve my chances…thanks my dear..

Magnesium Chloride and me..

Posted by: admin  /  Category: Health

In the main I’m feeling very positive and optimistic about the effects of the larger doses of magnesium I’m taking. At this time I’m taking 3 x 200 mg of magnesium stearate three times per day, so 1.8 g’s.

The magnesium is chelated which to a degree enhances the ability of magnesium to be metabolized.


Ideally I want to have magnesium chloride but until today I’ve not been able to get here in England, but through trusty Amazon I can now get it.  I was able to get mag chloride from a company called Alta  who is the same provider so in a week I’ll have them.


Magnesium in any of the several forms available is helpful to everyone but mag chloride is the quickest and easiest form to be metabolized.

Although I’m a long long way from being healthy and free from MS, I am noticing small and very subtle changes. Getting up and negotiating my way around my flat (apartment for my US readers) probably looks awkward to anyone watching but it’s getting easier.

I use the walls and the furniture to get around and I definitely feel stronger and my stability is improving.


The amount of mag chloride I’m taking is considerably more than the recommended dose, but normal doses are for normal healthy people. I think MS or the combination of symptoms that collectively are termed MS are so closely linked to magnesium deficiency. That being the case I feel that saturating my body through supplementing and soaking is the way to go.


The book by Carolyn Dean M.D, N.D. certainly indicates that using the amounts will not harm me, as so many enzymes and systems desperately require magnesium to function correctly.


Unlike some other elements if a body is subject to an overdose it can naturally be excreted  so I’ll take on my role as guinea pig and see how I feel over the next week or so.

I’ll not elaborate on my next comment but I will pass on my most sincere thanks and gratitude to a true friend Claire Trigger…

The most essential mineral…

Posted by: admin  /  Category: Health


Magnesium Chloride is recognized by many medical professionals as the “Master Magnesium Compound” for both dietary and topical uses, due to its high potency and efficient action.

Magnesium is undeniably therapeutic to the human body, yet much is left unsaid about the type and quality of various forms of magnesium.

magnesium chloride salt

Not all types of magnesium deliver the same recognizable benefits. Like other minerals of nutritional value, magnesium occurs as various inorganic and organic forms in nature. Each of these forms has varying degrees of efficiency in human biochemistry.

  • In supplement form, magnesium oxide, the most common form of magnesium sold in pharmacies and grocery stores, has been shown to have as low as a 4% absorption rate.1
  • Other forms of magnesium, especially the naturally occurring magnesium chloride, have been demonstrated to achieve much greater bioavailability.

Choosing a highly soluble form of magnesium brings both high potency and superior benefits toward health.  For fast-acting therapeutic use, magnesium chloride is especially recommended. One particularly safe and natural form is now available in a pure, unadulterated magnesium oil or asmagnesium bath salts, both extracted from a pristine ancient sea bed and tested free of contaminants.


the magnesium miracle carolyn deanThe Magnesium Miracle, by Carolyn Dean, M.D. N.D.

According to Dr. Carolyn Dean, M.D., N.D., author of The Magnesium Miracleand expert on magnesium therapy, magnesium chloride and other inorganic magnesium salts occur as metal-ligand complexes, substances bound around a single, central metal atom, in this case magnesium. These metal-ligand compounds may each be assigned a “stability constant”, which defines their relative ability to dissociate into ionic form.

Stability constants range from values less than one to values under twenty. With regard to forms of magnesium supplements, the closer the stability constant is to zero, the more bioavailable the supplement. Lower stability constants represent soluble complexes, more easily broken down into ionic form for bioavailability. This is important, as we assimilate magnesium not as the magnesium chloride compound, but rather as free magnesium and chloride ions.

Stability Constants of Common Magnesium Compounds

The following chart lists the stability constants of some common magnesium compounds, with lower stability constants reflecting higher bioavailability:2 3

Magnesium chloride potency is clearly revealed in this data. With a stability constant of zero, magnesium chloride is completely ionized across a wide pH range–from a low pH of 2 to 3, found in stomach acid, to the slightly alkaline physiologic pH of 7.4, found in the main extracellular body fluids such as serum and lymph.2

Notably, the natural pH of the skin mantle is a mildly acidic 4.5 to 6, creating an ideal environment for total ionization of magnesium chloride. Thus optimal uptake into underlying tissues is possible with topical magnesium chloride us, as found in transdermal magnesium therapy.

As to the success of magnesium chloride for health via oral supplementation, the benefits are admirable. Many researchers advocate magnesium chloride as the most effective form of dietary supplementation, in part due to the vital role that chloride has in the production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach.

Magnesium plays a vital role in the production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach.

Some people simply do not produce enough hydrochloric acid (HCl), which can result in a number of health issues related to metabolism and nutrient absorption. These deficiencies can be due to various disorders that affect the stomach, or simply due to individual differences or reasons unknown. As we age, production of HCl in the stomach declines, often dramatically, and is nearly always left undiagnosed.

Magnesium chloride’s use as a magnesium supplement has the added benefit of helping to reduce many potential problems that could arise from steadily declining secretions of gastric acid in the stomach.

These can include:

  • Mal-absorption of vitamins and minerals
  • A failure in proper digestion
  • An increased susceptibility to unwanted bacteria, viruses, and yeasts passing through the gut

These advantages come from the extra chloride found in magnesium chloride, enough to increase production of gastric acid, thereby enhancing absorption and assimilation of magnesium itself, and improving overall digestive efficiency — creating an ideal environment for the assimilation of critical micronutrients important to health, especially as we age.


Magnesium chloride potency and efficacy is particularly achieved when applied topically to the skin in a form known as “magnesium chloride oil”. Positive reports from medical professionals and consumers regarding the health benefits achieved from using topical magnesium chloride highlight its convenience and its effectiveness in addressing a variety of symptoms including those related to the skin, muscles and nervous system.

sea mineralsMagnesium Chloride is Sourced From the Ancient Zechstein Sea

Supporters of Ancient Minerals magnesium chloride describe in detail the immediate and profound impact that topical or “transdermal” magnesium has had on their health, where oral dosages of various magnesium compounds have fallen short of their expectations.

See also:

A small study conducted by Dr. Norman Shealy, M.D., founder of the American Holistic Medical Association, provides documented research on the effect of topical magnesium chloride on blood chemistry. Dr. Shealy compared intracellular magnesium levels of participants before and after a period of daily application of topical magnesium, via magnesium baths and spray application of magnesium chloride oil.

With 75% of participants showing marked improvement, Dr. Shealy concluded that the unique properties of supersaturated magnesium chloride allow it to be absorbed effectively into the skin, raising intracellular magnesium levels in the majority of individuals.

More information:


A commonly asked question among professionals and consumers is exactly what percentage of Ancient Minerals magnesium chloride oil, gel, lotion or flakes is absorbed by the skin? And, how effectively are topical preparations of magnesium chloride absorbed in comparison to oral use?

Fick’s Law of Diffusion states that the amount of any solute absorbed (e.g. magnesium chloride oil) is directly dependent upon:

  • The concentration of the solution
  • The length of time the solute is in contact with the membrane (e.g. the skin)
  • Additional variables, including application sites on the body, temperature of the solution, etc.

While these points do provide insight into the conditions which would favor effective uptake of magnesium by the skin, a definitive answer as to precisely how many milligrams are absorbed is of course unattainable in vivo. Exact values are similarly unattainable when oral dosages are called into question. Far too many intrinsic factors exist to influence exactly how much and how fast magnesium is assimilated and subsequently sent into circulation, whether via the oral or topical route.

However, the clear-cut efficiency of the skin for mineral uptake coupled with the broad benefits of magnesium chloride in topical applications certainly provides a well-laid foundation for rapid results to the user. What is measurable are the effects on blood chemistry as demonstrated in Dr. Shealy’s study, along with immediate improvements in one’s health from restoration of magnesium deficient cells.

What those who have experience with topical magnesium therapy generally acknowledge:

Magnesium chloride arguably delivers more usable magnesium to cells than any other form, especially when the skin is used as a primary path of entrance.


It’s important to note that oral magnesium presents unique challenges for many individuals. For many, these challenges become barriers to restoring intracellular magnesium levels effectively.

Magnesium oxide, common in popular dietary supplements, could have a fractional absorption in the gut as small as 4 percent.

Firstly, realistic absorption rates from oral magnesium supplements are rarely taken into account when dosage recommendations are given. Usage of poorly ionized forms of magnesium can therefore result in ineffective supplementation. A study in 2001 indicated that magnesium oxide, an inexpensive magnesium complex included in many popular dietary supplements, could have a fractional absorption in the gut as small as 4 percent.1

If one was to ingest the commonly recommended (albeit modest) adult dosage of 300-400 mg magnesium per day in this poorly absorbed form, it could equate to a usable dosage of only 12-16 mg.

Secondly, and perhaps more important, is the fact that nearly all magnesium supplements share a common tendency to create a laxative effect in the bowels. The effect of different magnesium compounds on bowel motility and stool softness is further amplified with the quantity ingested in a single dose.

The higher any single dosage, the greater the potential to cause diarrhea, thereby reducing transit time through the bowels. This is of key importance, and as Dr. Shealy indicates in his book Holy Water, Sacred Oil: The Fountain of Youth, there is reliable evidence to indicate that absorption relies heavily on magnesium’s staying power in the intestine–at minimum 12 hours. If transit time is reduced to less than 12 hours, the percentage of magnesium absorbed may be drastically impaired.

When these points of consideration are taken in conjunction with the unpredictability of each individual’s efficiency to absorb magnesium through oral means, the results become unreliable in many cases. In contrast, bypassing the digestive system with topical use of magnesium oillotion orgel — or other transdermal therapies including magnesium baths or foot soaks — circumvents the many common drawbacks that can accompany oral supplementation.

A quick search of Pub Med yields thousands of scientific studies highlighting the benefits of various magnesium compounds in human biochemistry. From migraines and pain management to depression, anxiety, sleeplessness and memory, magnesium has clearly demonstrated enormous versatility as a healing mineral.

However, magnesium chloride has expressed unique characteristics beyond the scope of other inorganic magnesium salts that are of special interest. As discovered in 1915 by French surgeon Pierre Delbet, M.D.:

  • The application of a magnesium chloride solution to external wounds had favorable effects over leucocytic activity and phagocytosis, making it ideal for wound cleansing.
  • Oral magnesium chloride was a powerful immuno-stimulant, exhibiting a broad tonic effect on the host.

Thirty years later, another French doctor, A. Neveu, M.D., used magnesium chloride orally for a broad spectrum of disorders benefiting from the immune bolstering effects that magnesium chloride offered.4

magnesium oil

Dr. Jose Perez Albela Beraun, M.D., director of the Instituto Bien de Salud in Lima, Peru, is a zealous supporter of magnesium, where magnesium chloride is the form used almost exclusively in his work. Dr. Albela spreads the word of magnesium chloride and health through his various radio shows, public lectures, and colleagues, and in fact manufactures and distributes single dose packets of magnesium chloride, often giving them away to the needy. Success stories from the patients of Dr. Albela could fill an entire book.2

Magnesium oil, liquid magnesium, and magnesium spray — all names which refer to a concentrated solution of magnesium chloride applied to the skin — are the new darlings of many holistic health professionals. Dr. Carolyn Dean, M.D., N.D., describes the unique benefits of topical magnesium chloride oil:

A very exciting addition to the magnesium family is a product loosely referred to as magnesium oil. It’s not actually an oil at all, but a super saturated solution of magnesium chloride. Magnesium oil can be sprayed or rubbed on the body, and is readily absorbed through the skin. It helps to greatly increase the amount of magnesium in body tissues and overcomes the problems that some people have with loose stools when they try to take enough magnesium to meet their needs. This can be especially important in cases of severe magnesium deficiency that were only treatable with IV magnesium before magnesium oil came along.”2

Since not all magnesium supplements are equal, it pays to consider the efficiency of various forms of magnesium before choosing the one that’s right for you.

The fast-acting ability of topical magnesium chloride to deliver magnesium beyond that possible with oral forms makes it ideal for restoring optimal health.


Pig and puzzle…

Posted by: admin  /  Category: Health

Each day I spend a great deal of time thinking about my situation and how I can correct it, looking back to that horrible day in 04 maybe I was wrong in refusing to be officially diagnosed and getting on the medication but I’m glad I did it my way. It could be the arrogance of being half German, I don’t know but in my heart of hearts I feel I’m a better man for not settling for a life of drugs and allowing the disease to have it’s way.


So I continue to try new things and be my own guinea pig. I’ll read and either dismiss the idea from the writer as not applicable or suitable or feasible because of practical or financial reasons. Or I read a document or paper submitted to a medical journal or a book specifically on the health issue plaguing my life and think it could work for me.


It’s a bit like having a 5,000 piece jigsaw puzzle, over the years I’ve managed to put all the pieces making up the sides and corners together. That’s when I feel good about what I’m doing but then I look at the puzzle and see the cat has been in and scratched some pieces around. I don’t have a cat it was just a metaphor.


The book I’m reading at the moment is filling me with hope, the author is making so much sense in her research and explanation of how magnesium is way more important and influential than I originally thought. Yes I’ve advocated the use of magnesium to hundreds of people and family members of late about muscle relaxing and eliminating cramps for women having problems during their periods. But I learnt that there are more than 800, yes 800 enzymes and systems in the body that are dependent on magnesium in order to function correctly.


It’s no surprise then to learn that millions of people are experiencing health  problems that can all be because of a magnesium deficiency. So far I’m seeing many indications that the symptoms of my MS are very closely associated with magnesium deficiency. That’s not to say I don’t have MS because I know I do however, the symptomatology is similar. What if the name of this disease is multiple sclerosis but in the past magnesium was not considered and the effects of magnesium deficiency are a multitude of symptoms that has been named MS.

Obviously my ability to run tests on my blood is very limited so it’s the guinea pig and the 5,000 piece jigsaw puzzle for now but I will keep you updated, wish me luck…
