Gardasil Researcher Drops A Bombshell

Dr. Diane Harper, lead researcher in the development of two human papilloma virus vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix, said the controversial drugs will do little to reduce cervical cancer rates and, even though they’re being recommended for girls as young as nine, there have been no efficacy trials in children under the age of 15.

Dr. Harper began her remarks by explaining that 70 percent of all HPV infections resolve themselves without treatment within a year. Within two years, the number climbs to 90 percent. Of the remaining 10 percent of HPV infections, only half will develop into cervical cancer, which leaves little need for the vaccine.

Dr. Harper dropped an even bigger bombshell on the audience when she announced that, “There have been no efficacy trials in girls under 15 years.”

Since the drug’s introduction in 2006, the public has been learning many of these facts the hard way. To date, 15,037 girls have officially reported adverse side effects from Gardasil to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). These adverse reactions include Guilliane Barre, lupus, seizures, paralysis, blood clots, brain inflammation and many others. The CDC acknowledges that there have been 44 reported deaths.

Dr. Aaron's comments
- Gardasil is for Human Papiloma Virus; a sexual transmitted disease. It will not protect against any other sexual transmitted disease. Abstinence is the ONLY way to be completely protected from a sexually transmitted disease.

- According to the National Institutes of Health National Cancer institute, in more than 90% of the cases, HPV infections are harmless and go away without treatment

- The majority of women clear the HPV virus from their bodies naturally but women with risk factors, such as HIV infection, smoking, long-time use of oral contraceptives, and co-infection with herpes simplex virus or chlamydia, are at higher risk for chronic HPV infection

- Between 1955 and 1992, cervical cancer deaths in American women dropped by 74 percent due to routine pap smears.

- There are about 9,800 new cases of cervical cancer annually diagnosed in the U.S., which represents .007 percent out of the approximately 1,372,000 new cancer cases of all types diagnosed.

- There are about 3,700 deaths in mostly older American women annually attributed to HPV-related cervical cancer, which is about .006 percent of the approximately 570,000 cancer deaths that occur in the U.S.

- Survival for women with pre-invasive cervical cancer lesions is nearly 100% with early diagnosis and appropriate treatment

- Why are we telling all girls 11-13 to get the shot?

Flies Don't Cause Garbage

The germ theory states that germs are the reason that we get sick. In the mid 1800's, Louis Pasteur developed what we now call the germ theory. Until the germ theory came about many scientists believed in "spontaneous generation." That germs and illness developed out of nowhere. The work of Louis Pasteur played a large part in helping reduce sickness around the world especially the work he did with rabies and pasteurization. What he could not explain however, is that some people who had never been exposed to an illness before would not get sick when exposed to that illness. Today, the germ theory is how most of modern medicine approaches health and transmittable diseases but is it right? Do germs cause us to get sick and if they did wouldn't we all be sick? To answer this question, I will ask you one first. Do flies cause garbage?

If you have ever set your garbage out on a hot day, you will quickly start to sees flies accumulate. Most people would not walk by and think "Wow, those flies sure do create a lot of garbage." You know better. The flies are there because of the garbage not the other way around. No garbage=no flies.

Do germs cause us to get sick? Let me ask you another question. What is the purpose of germs? Why would God create germs? Just to get us sick? God created bacteria to decompose sick and dying tissue. In fact bacteria will only go after that type of tissue. Knowing this, we can now have hope. No sick and dying tissue=no bacteria.

The germ theory really just leaves it to luck whether you get sick or not. If you are one of the lucky ones who avoided exposure, then you won't get sick. Now don't get me wrong if you can avoid exposure you have more chance of not getting sick but how difficult is it to avoid exposure. The key then to staying healthy is not just avoidance but a much greater tool that God blessed you with is an immune system. Pasteur and Bernard, a scientist who helped develop pasteurization, debated for many years on the germ theory. Bernard's thoughts were that the host needed to be susceptible not just have a germ present. Toward the end of Pasteur's life, he agreed. That means that a person can be active in making sure they don't get sick and not just through avoidance but by doing everything possible to stay healthy.

In our office we are always talking about ways to keep your body healthy. In the days, weeks, and years to come, this blog will be filled with ways to keep your body healthy. We are healthy by choice and not by luck. God calls us to be more than conquerors. Joel 3:10 says that "I call this body strong and not weak." Speak God's truth and follow his commands and you will be more than a conqueror!

As Many as 97% of People Who Think They Have H1N1 DO NOT!

According to a recent study reported by CBS news. As much as 97% of all people who think they have the H1N1 flu do not and may not even have an influenza illness. The report looks at four states who sent in samples of people who saw their doctor. Their doctor and the patient both assumed they had H1N1 flu. The test results showed that most people did not have H1N1. In Alaska only 7% had H1N1, Florida only 17% had H1N1, California only 14% had H1N1, and Georgia only 3% had H1N1.

The CDC no longer is taking samples from people who are coming in with flu like symptoms. They are making the assumption that they have H1N1. Currently world wide just under 400,000 cases of H1N1 have been confirmed, which is probably higher due to the fact that the US, and probably other countries, is no longer confirming cases. There are just over 4,000 reported deaths world wide due to H1N1. This is 0.01% of the people who get it die from it. Taking into consideration that there are probably more who are getting H1N1, then that percentage would be even less.

Child Eczema Helped Using The Bax-3000

Check out this video testimonial of a child with severe eczema and how they were helped using the BAX 3000. Click on the link to view.

Dr. Aaron's comments
1) Eczema is classified as an atopic disorder. Allergies are also classified under atopic disorders.
2) The body's immune system is overactive or attacks things not are not harmful in atopic disorders.
3) The immune system is controlled by the nerve system
4) Addressing the immune system is addressing the symptoms only
5) Teaching the nerve system to no longer tell the immune system to react to substances that are not harmful will fix the problem not just the symptoms
6) The BAX 3000 balances the nerve system to no longer respond to non harmful substances in a negative way but teaches it to respond in a positive way
7) This Saturday from 10-2 we will be having an open house for people to learn more about the BAX 3000

Hepatitis B Vaccine Triples the Risk of Autism in Infant Boys

In a recent abstract that was published in the September, 2009 issue of the respected journal Annals of Epidemiology, Carolyn Gallagher and Melody Goodman of the Graduate Program in Public Health at Stony Brook University Medical Center, NY, wrote that, “Boys who received the hepatitis B vaccine during the first month of life had 2.94 greater odds for ASD compared to later- or unvaccinated boys.” The authors used U.S. probability samples obtained from National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) 1997–2002 datasets.
The conclusion states that: “Findings suggest that U.S. male neonates vaccinated with hepatitis B vaccine had a 3-fold greater risk of ASD; risk was greatest for non-white boys.”

Dr. Aaron's Comments
- Hepatitis B is usually spread by contaminated blood or blood parts.. Typically through sex or shared IV drug use.
- Hepatitis B is a three shot vaccine. The shot is given at birth, 2 months and 6 months.
- According to the Merck manual children have no known immune function in their first 21 days of life. They depend completely on their mother's from when they were in the womb. The child would have no personal reaction to the Hepatitis B shot when given at birth.
- It is given to children in third world countries at birth due to not knowing if the mother has Hep. B. Greater than 10% of women in some third world countries have Hep. B.
- In the U.S., women are tested for Hep. B. The Hep. B status of the women is known. The numbers of women in the U.S. having Hep. B is less than 0.05%.
- According to the CDC 30-50% of children lose their antibodies to the disease in 7 years and 60% lose all immunity by 12 years.
- In a group of studies, 1636 doses of Recombivax HB (Hep. B) were administered to 653 healthy infants and children(5-10 years of age) who were monitored for 5 days after each dose.” Merck package insert. 5 days is a pretty short safety study.
It is always up to the parent to decide on whether their child is vaccinated. After hearing this information, does it make sense to vaccinate your child with Hep. B. If you were to do it at all, would it not make more sense to do it later in life.

Vitamin D Deficiency Fact of Fiction?

Have you ever wondered why flu season is always during the winter months and that more people suffer from the flu as they move away from the equator than in the areas closer to the equator. More and more studies are coming out showing that it may be due to Vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin that plays a large role in immune function. Our primary source of this vitamin is actually from the sun. This is one of the reasons winter time affects our levels of Vitamin D. While overexposure to the sun can be harmful, lack of sunlight can be just as harmful.
The studies have definitely proven that Vitamin D deficiency is playing a large part to the reason we get sick in the winter but how do we address this issue. Many doctors are saying we need to supplement our diets with it. Some are saying to supplement it with 2-4000 IUs/day and some are saying that we need to be taking 8-10,000 IUs/day even though research states that we need about 400 IUs/day to function. Why would we need to take so much then?
Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin that our bodies can store. Remember that I stated that our best source is from the sun. Therefore this is where we should start, we should build up a great store of vitamin D during the summer months. Research states that about 20 minutes of exposure/day is all we need.
Next we get it from our food and finally from supplementation. Great sources of food are:
Purified Cod Liver Oil (high amounts of naturally occurring Vitamin A & D);
Egg yolks, organic butter, oily fish (salmon~mackerel~sardines~herring);
Mushrooms & dark, leafy green vegetables
When it comes to supplementation and enriched foods, there is a problem. Most of them are from synthetic vitamins which the body does not recognize as well and won't utilize them but your body will store them leading to a toxicity to that vitamin.
In order to get the vitamin D that your body needs, you must eat foods high in it, supplement your diet with a whole food supplement, and make sure your body has all the proper enzymes to digest and utilize the vitamin. How do you know if your body has those enzymes. One way is that if you are doing the things I have recommended and your levels test low in a blood test, your enzymes are probably not working they way they should. Another way is to meet with Christine our naturopath. She can determine through special tests she does along with a great detailed history. If it is determined that your enzymes are not functioning they way they are suppose to, Christine can work with yo to get them back to where they need to be.
