I used to think of candida as a predator, stealing all the good in my body for itself. When I first started reading about candida overgrowth and how to overcome it, I was overwhelmed by the tortuous diet that would be required. The point of the candida diet is to starve it to death. So I began by consuming only vegetables, meat, fat, almonds, and brown rice. Weight dropped off of my body like I was shedding my winter coat. I don’t recall ever feeling better in the year I was on the candida diet, in fact I felt worse. With many hospital visits and late night google searches something was still missing. On this diet I may have been starving the candida to death but the problem was, I was also starving myself.
My body was covered in tinea versicolor. They say your skin is a mirror into your body which meant I was full of fungus. Candida pokes holes in the gut and food enters the blood stream creating igg mediated reactions also known as sensitivities. These delayed hypersensitivity reactions are so extreme that they can include symptoms such as a rash, backache, cough, hyperactivity, tic’s, numbness, and blurred vision. This list barely touches symptoms that are possibly caused by igg mediated reactions.
Candida, the big bad wolf is actually not so bad, in fact it is meant to live peacefully within our bodies Candida absorbs heavy metals to keep them from entering the blood stream, protecting us as a result. We all know how dangerous heavy metals are, especially mercury. If you have amalgams you probably have candida. Candida is never the cause of illness it is always the side effect. If you have candida then it’s pertinent you search for the true source of your illness.
Dental toxicity, malnutrition, and environmental toxin exposure are just some of the possible causes of illness and candida overgrowth. Whatever it may be vitamin C is the answer. By flushing the digestive tract you will flood your gut with all those cell saving electrons and push pathogens out into the porcelain throne where they cannot harm you anymore.Your gut bacteria will celebrate and start building up their habitat. Keep feeding your healthy bacteria and flushing regularly to push those pathogens out before they can spread.
Candida is not to be destroyed. We want to provide an environment where the candida does not need to spread and cause damage. We want a healthy body where we can live in harmony with it.
It took me three months to fully recover from my delayed hypersensitivity reactions. I watched the candida overgrowth be excreted and balanced. I still, after several years look and feel better with the help of vitamin c. My tinea versicolor has been gone for years. I am no longer on any sort of diet and enjoy every healthy day I have. Stop worrying about crazy diets and pharmaceutical antifungals. Ascorbic acid, vitamin c has the potential to detox and help you heal, you just have to provide your body with enough of it.
Forty-four years ago the autism prevalence rate was less than 1 per 10,000 and now
the rate has grown to 1 in 68 children, according to the Center for Disease Control
(Christensen D., 2016). At this pace the autism rates will be 1 in 2 by 2050. The vaccine
debate is not a new trend brought on by rebellious googling moms, but an old revolution
commenced by doctors with great reason. In 1876 Dr. James Wilkinson said:
“Compulsory vaccination is an instance of a law which inflicts actual disease and
possible death on the human body and propagates disseminates deadly infections widely
upon animals and mankind. This is surely a glaring instance of a law which is not based
on wisdom or sanity and is a menace to the health and security of humanity and the state.
This amazing act is the homicidal insanity of a whole profession. This is blood
assassination” (Higging C., 1920). It is extremely important to uncover just what causes
autism before this epidemic is insurmountable. According to scientific literature, autism
appears to be undoubtedly associated with the administration of vaccines.
Autism is a term used to describe a group of complex brain development disorders.
Some of the worse symptoms associated with autism are self-harm, repetitive movements,
compulsive behavior, learning disabilities, speech delay, anxiety, and even tic’s.
Vaccines were designed to stimulate the production of antibodies, providing
immunity against diseases. Approximately 49 doses of vaccines are recommended before
a child turns 6. But what exactly is in a vaccine? The Center for Disease Control provides
a list of ingredients on their website: “FD&C Yellow #6 aluminum lake dye, human
serum albumin, fetal bovine serum, human-diploid fibroblast cell cultures (WI-38),
Dulbecco’s Modified Eagle’s Medium, monosodium glutamate” (Grabenstein JD., 2013).
The University of British Columbia found that “in young children, a highly significant
correlation exists between the number of pediatric aluminum-adjuvanted vaccines
administered and the rate of autism spectrum disorders” (Sgaw CA., 2013). Seizures are
one of the symptoms of aluminum toxicity and they are also one of the many reactions
children experience after being vaccinated. Cells harvested from calf fetuses, components
of another human’s blood, lung tissue from aborted fetuses, and MSG are alarming
ingredients being injected into newborns through vaccines. The most troubling of
ingredients are the heavy metals: mercury and aluminum. The School of Medicine at
Fu-Jen Catholic University concluded from a study that excess aluminum accumulates in
certain areas of the brain inducing oxidative damage (Yuan C. 2012). It is said that
thimerosal has been removed from vaccines with exception of the flu shot that is still
recommended for children. The exposure to thimerosal at a young age has a strong
correlation with health issues and with autism development. The Southwestern Medical
Center in Texas discovered epidemiological evidence that there was an association
between thimerosal containing vaccines and autism spectrum disorder(David A Geier.
2013). Monosodium Glutamate is a well known neurotoxin that has the power to cross
the placenta into a growing fetus. Research concludes that the ingredients in vaccines are
not safe and can have cataclysmic effects on the body.
A combination vaccine for pertussis, diphtheria, and tetanus is undoubtedly the most
dangerous of vaccines because of its onslaught on the immune system and has the
capability to leave susceptible children with neurological syndromes. This vaccine is
administered to mainly infants that have not yet developed a strong immune defense,
making the adverse effects much worse.
There have been many proposed causes of autism such as: inflammation, genetics,
and toxin exposure. Inflammation is associated with oxidative stress from free radical
damage. Genetic mutations impair metabolic pathways increasing oxidative stress. Toxins
create free radicals that steal electrons from healthy cells within the body resulting in
oxidative stress. Autism appears to be directly caused by oxidative stress within
susceptible tissues of the body, specifically the brain. Because all parts of a vaccine create
free radicals they undeniably have the potential to cause children to develope autism.
Oxidative damage is an imbalance between free radicals and the body’s ability to
neutralize those free radicals with electrons from antioxidants. Every disease and illness
involves oxidative stress. Those with inadequate antioxidant intake cannot properly
support their body during times of illness. Since vaccines cause oxidative stress the same
principle applies. The Menssana Research Inc. found that "the flu vaccination in healthy
humans elicited a prompt and sustained increase in breath bio-markers of oxidative
stress” (Phillips M1., 2010). This is after the administration of just one vaccination in an
adult. Imagine the oxidative stress in a child after the administration of six vaccinations
or more. The damage to the body will be unavoidable and the development of autism
Andrew Wakefield is a well-known gastroenterologist and researcher. He is famous
for proposing a link between the MMR vaccine and autism. “Onset of behavioral
symptoms was associated, by the parents, with measles, mumps, and rubella vaccination
in eight of the 12 children, with measles infection in one child, and otitis media in another.
All 12 children had intestinal abnormalities, ranging from lymphoid nodular hyperplasia
to aphthoid ulceration”(Wakefield A., 1998). Although his research clearly shows this
proposed link was the idea of the parents, Andrew Wakefield's work was discredited and
used as a weapon by pro-vaccinators. A study that could cause an unfavorable reaction
towards vaccines could pose a risk to the multibillion dollar industry. In fact, the
pharmaceutical companies that produce vaccinations cannot be liable for vaccine injuries
or reactions, instead there is a vaccine injury compensation program. Billions of dollars
have been awarded to those that have taken on the difficult process of getting
compensated. In England, where Andrew Wakefield’s work was done there is still no
compensation plan for vaccine injured individuals.
Brandon Guppy was born in 1992 a beautiful healthy baby with an apgar score of 9.
Brandon was administered all of the recommended vaccinations on time and with those
vaccinations came rashes, eczema, and thrush. Brandon then developed diarrhea and his
speech ended. Michelle, Brandon’s mother has devoted her life to raising awareness about
autism and how dangerous vaccines are. She knows that her son’s autism and daily
seizures are a result of vaccinations. Michelle shares on social media traumatic moments
that she encounters when her son experiences a devastating grand mal seizure, in hopes it
will raise awareness. There is a law preventing the pharmaceutical companies from being
held responsible for the pain and suffering that Brandon and his family experience every
day. And yet, still these companies claim that there is no correlation between autism and
the administration of vaccines. What about the thousands of parents claiming that there is?
Do their tragic experiences hold no merit? I hope that stories like Brandon’s and
Michelle’s will encourage parents to do their own research. People like Michelle are
inspiring change, because all decisions become our destiny.
Dr. Thomas Levy, a board certified cardiologist that has vast knowledge on oxidative
stress and disease shared his thoughts on the correlation between autism and vaccines. “I
believe that greater than 90% of autism and nonspecific neurobehavioral problems
in kids (attention deficit, hyperactivity, etc.) are directly due to the toxic hit of vaccines,
later to be worsened by all the other toxic hits babies and kids face in environment and
diet these days” (Levy T. MD., JD., 2016). Dr. Levy has exceptional knowledge on the
connection between oxidative stress and it being the root of all disease. Vaccines and the
viruses within them induce free radical damage and an onslaught of the human body. His
staggering 90% estimate would explain the dramatic increase in autism rates.
There is much fear mongering taking place in regard to vaccinations. Those that are
afraid to vaccinate their children because of information or intuition are not only being
shamed by the media but they are also being shamed by their healthcare providers.
Doctors are not experts on vaccines, as a matter of fact many doctors will confess they
have very little knowledge on vaccines. Yet, they are told to encourage the administration
of vaccines and vouch for their safety. Dr. Kalokerinos concluded after over forty years
as a doctor and working with vaccines, “They want to make it appear as if they are saving
these kids, but in actual fact they don’t. I am talking of those at the very top. Beneath that
level is another level of doctors and health workers, like myself, who don’t really
understand what they are doing. But I cannot see any other possible explanation: It is
murder and it is genocide” (Kalokerinos A., 1995).
Eight years ago I gave birth to my first child. Like many parents I vaccinated her
because I did not want her to die from mumps or get sick with chicken pox. Whether I
was going to vaccinate or not was never a topic of conversation. It was always just the
way things were supposed to happen. When the sparkle in my baby girls eye started to
fade I knew something was amiss in her little body and I had to wonder what I was doing
wrong. She developed the sort of anxiety you see in horror movies, that depict the main
character constantly running for her life. Could something so normal, something that was
meant to protect my daughter actually be causing harm? And if vaccines are so harmful
where are all the damaged children to prove it? It turns out they are not so hard to find.
You can find neighbors, coworkers, classmates, and even relatives that have experienced
adverse reactions to vaccines. I stopped vaccinating my children and I was terrified of
preventable diseases. It turns out those preventable diseases were not as scary as I
expected, especially in healthy children. Like the Association of American Physicians and
Surgeons said "Measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis B, and the whole panoply of childhood
diseases are a far less serious threat than having a large fraction (say 10%) of a generation
afflicted with learning disability and/or uncontrollable aggressive behavior because of an
impassioned crusade for universal vaccination” (Orient J., MD., 1999). As a mother of 4
children I am courageously prepared to take on any disease, but I am not prepared to
welcome anymore preventable behavioral and physical disabilities into our lives.
The administration of vaccines should come with adequate knowledge. Parents
should be informed of ingredients and the side effects that are directly listed on the
vaccine inserts. Anyone is welcome to ask for them. Doctors that administer vaccines
should be educated on them and encourage a parent’s right to choose.
Autism is a devastating disorder that can and has altered the lives of many. It is a
direct result of oxidative damage within the body and because the makeup of vaccines are
toxic they result in oxidative damage. This evidence compels the conclusion that vaccines
can and will result in autism spectrum disorder. Are you willing to take that risk?
