Article intended to be read in conjunction with VRM: The Problem With Vaccines Part 4 – Primary Aspects of Vaccine Toxicity Affecting The Body
There are unfortunately no shortcuts to restoring natural, optimal health levels in the body, no quick fix solutions; given the insidious, synergistic nature of vaccine derived “sludge” toxicity – consisting of heavy metals, live viruses/or strands of DNA-RNA “heat treated virus”, antibiotics, formaldehyde, detergent, diploid cells (aborted fetal tissue), mycoplasma, phenol dye & excipient buffers.
You have to appreciate, it took time to scar, erode, corrode, singe, clog, coagulate, cross-contaminate, breach, inflame, infect, neutralize, desensitize, degenerate, deplete, demylenate, gradually break down the vast network of myriad operating systems that comprise the delicate matrix of the body. Consequently, it will take a real sense of commitment to unravel & repair all the damage done (depending on the degree of toxicity & the timing of the initial breach of the core). After all we are not machines. Ultimately a holistic approach is required to insure long-term lasting results, to reap the full benefits of this regime.
Our ancestors understood these basic principles instinctively – as they were essential for their survival. We must therefore seek to rekindle that intrinsic awareness, lost through generations of urban dwelling & over-dependency on outside forces, to learn to manage our own vital health choices; as we finally move ahead in pursuit of self-determination of the body.
The human body is conceived much like the structure of a modern house. The foundation ideally consists of a solid framework of evenly distributed beams & supports built upon a reinforced bedrock. The basement area headquarters the central plumbing unit, including the primary “electrical grid” nerve center (maintains power, lighting, heating & cooling exchange); which services all the rooms & corridors throughout the upper floors via an elaborate piping & drainage system interlacing the overall design. The rooms which encompass the house are fully dependent on the guts of the operation to co-ordinate each aspect simultaneously & thus ensure a healthy environment in which to function.
Detoxification & restoration of the body can only be accomplished by focusing on the overall design. Depending on the extent of vaccine injury effecting your specific constitution, it can be measured, in terms of degrees, somewhere on the scale leading to Autism. Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder have had the rug pulled out from under them at a critical stage of early development, stripped of their vital mineral base, Mitochondrial & Thyroid functionality (including the liver), their delicate “electrical grid” nerve center violated – which significantly inhibits the capacity of the body to carry out its normal systems of operation.
Common deficiencies amongst children with Autism frequently include (all vaccinated children, regardless, are susceptible to this depletion to a lesser or greater extent): Vitamins A, B6/B12, C, D3, E, Glutathione, Selenium, Zinc, Magnesium, Mitochondria (related).
These are the body’s primary antioxidants & trace minerals (excluding Mitochondria); essential to regulating Free Radicals (unpaired Electrons) throughout the body, staving off Cancer, Diabetes, Autism, Schizophrenia & the rapid macro-degeneration of cells.
a. Hyperbetacarotenemia, a form of intestinal dysfunction linked to Measles (from the MMR shot) is marked by excessive beta-carotene in the blood & Vitamin A depletion. The characteristic yellow tint of the skin in hypothyroidism is due to hyperbetacarotenemia. Studies conducted in 1958 and 1961 confirmed that the wild measles virus has a severe short-term effect on immunity and the child’s nutritional status, especially vitamin A which is obliterated by the intervention of such a virus. Vitamin A plays a central role in the development & differentiation of white blood cells, such as lymphocytes, which are essential to the immune response. Vitamins C & E are dependent on Vitamin A. Therefore the bedrock of your immunity is compromised.
b. Starved of Vitamin D3: As a result the Lymphocytes in their lungs can’t process Vitamin C & E, which leads to Respiratory dysfunction & increased vulnerability to ALL infections. Vitamin D is required to increase the circulation of calcium and phosphorous, two minerals necessary for healthy bones. The kidneys produce Vitamin D3 & the liver plays a vital role in the functioning of D3 throughout the body. When these organs are compromised , it will throw your entire metabolism off.
c. Many autistic children have a deficiency of Vitamin B6/B12, which is vital for the proper functioning of the brain and nervous system. B-12 is ‘a crucial nutrient for nerve health and the construction of red blood cells that carry oxygen throughout your body; deficiency of which can actually cause brain shrinkage – also associated with Alzheimer’s. Studies now show that up to 40% of the population may be deficient in vitamin B-12.’ Solutions: Avoid cyanocobalamin. Safe, effective B-12 supplement: Methylcobalamin
d. Estrogen protects the female brain from being damaged by heavy metal toxicity (including low Vitamin D). Testosterone, the male sex hormone increases heavy metal toxicity; explaining why Autism is statistically occurring 4-1 in boys over girls. “Autism is caused from a quantitative variation in one of the enzymes that metabolize Vitamin D.” Dr. John Cannell
e. Vitamin C is required for the synthesis of collagen, the intercellular “cement” substance which gives structure to muscles, vascular tissues, bones, tendons and ligaments. Vitamin C is also able to regenerate Vitamin E but not when the Vitamin D3 levels drop off.
f. Vitamin E is an antioxidant which intercepts free radicals and therefore prevents lipid destruction chain reactions. It maintains the integrity of cell membranes. After reactions with free radicals the antioxidant function of vitamin E is lost. Vitamin C is able to regenerate Vitamin E levels but not when the Vitamin D3 levels drop off.
g. Heavy metals rapidly deplete Selenium in the body. Selenium is necessary for Glutathione production (the body’s primary antioxidant). This causes a chain reaction which triggers liver damage, diabetes, cancer & in the long term, heart failure.
h. The Thyroid Gland is key to overall health. Produces T3 & T4 hormones (Iodine Atoms). Iodine helps regulate metabolism in the body. Thyroid synthesizes vital T3 (rare) from T4 (plentiful). Body needs 150 mg per day – 80% comes from T4 conversion to T3 in the Liver. Vaccine derived heavy metal toxicity neutralizes this function.
i. Damage to the Methylation process – Methylation assists in a critical stage of early development involving the viability of cells, ‘an on/off switch that allows the body to learn how to respond to environmental change. It represents the only cellular pathway that effects both adaptability and structural integrity of the body.
j. Children with Autism are noticeably depleted of Magnesium. ‘Magnesium deficiency in the electroyte serum, resulting from a magnesium deficient diet, or a diet high in sugar, salt, and saturated fats, can have an effect on neural efficiency- neuronal homeostasis-, leading to conditions on the Autism Spectrum Disorder.‘…’dietetic factors can play a significant role in the origin of ADHD and that magnesium deficiency can result in disruptive behaviors…most children on the spectrum are not absorbing the minerals they need even when present in the gut. Magnesium absorption is dependent on intestinal health, which is compromised in leaky gut syndromes that the majority of autistic children suffer from.‘
k. ‘In this metallomics analysis study, we have determined human scalp hair concentrations of 26 trace elements for 1,967 children with autistic disorders aged 0–15 years and showed that many of the patients, especially in infants aged 0–3 year-old, are suffering from marginal to severe zinc- and magnesium-deficiency and/or high burdens of several toxic metals such as aluminium, cadmium and lead. These findings suggest that there is a critical term “infantile window” in neurodevelopment and probable for therapy of autistic disorders.‘ Estimation of autistic children by metallomics analysis – Hiroshi Yasuda, Masahiro Kobayashi, Yuichi Yasuda & Toyoharu Tsutsui, 02/04/2013
l. Anti-mitochondrial antibodies are elevated; which suffocates Eukaryotic cells (complex structures enclosed within membranes). Mitochondria are the battery pack of your cells. “Mitochondria play an important role in controlling the life and death of a cell. Consequently, mitochondrial dysfunction leads to a range of human diseases such as ischemia-reperfusion injury, sepsis, and diabetes.” Most Eukaryotic cells contain other membrane-bound organelles such as mitochondria, chloroplasts & Golgi body. “Primordial eukaryotic cells lacked ability to use oxygen” – excerpt/Autistic case file.
These primary antioxidants & trace minerals, the bedrock of natural immunity, are all interdependent, without which your fundamental metabolism can become seriously compromised; a hallmark of Autism and a wake up call to those of us more fortunate:
Vitamin A plays a central role in the development & differentiation of white blood cells, such as lymphocytes, which are essential to the immune response. Vitamin A deficiency has been shown to increase T3 and this is further increased by an additional deficiency of iodine. “In the A- and A-I- groups, blood levels of retinol fell to one tenth of the control mean and circulating concentrations of total and free T4 and T3 increased significantly. This biochemical hyperthyroidism contrasted with the maintenance of normal TSH plasma values, suggesting a generalized peripheral refractoriness to thyroid hormones.”
Group B vitamins can act individually or in combination with the cellular enzymes to form vitamin B co-enzymes. These vitamin B co-enzymes are crucial to the metabolic pathways that generate the energy from carbohydrates, fat and protein, needed by every cell in the body. Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is required for the synthesis of the neurotransmitters serotonin & norepinephrine and for myelin formation. ‘In some experiments on chick growth with wholly vegetable diets supplemented with pure vitamin B12, a relationship became evident between the growth-stimulating effect of this vitamin and the content of calcium, iron and vitamin D of the diet.’ Vitamin D insufficiency has now reached epidemic proportions and has been linked to increased body fat and decreased muscle strength.
Vitamin C is required for the synthesis of collagen, the inter-cellular “cement” substance which gives structure to muscles, vascular tissues, bones, tendons and ligaments. Vitamin C is also able to regenerate Vitamin E but not when the Vitamin D3 levels drop off. Vitamins C & E are dependent on Vitamin A. Therefore the bedrock of your immunity is compromised.
Vitamin D is required to increase the circulation of calcium and phosphorous, two minerals necessary for healthy bones. The kidneys produce Vitamin D3 & the liver plays a vital role in the functioning of D3 throughout the body. When these organs are compromised , it will throw your entire metabolism off. The Lymphocytes in your lungs depend on Vitamin D3 (steroid hormone derived from sunlight); without which they can’t process Vitamin C & E.
Vitamin E is an antioxidant which intercepts free radicals and therefore prevents lipid destruction chain reactions. It maintains the integrity of cell membranes. After reactions with free radicals the antioxidant function of Vitamin E is lost.
Selenium is necessary for Glutathione production (the body’s primary antioxidant). This causes a chain reaction which triggers liver damage, diabetes, cancer & in the long term, heart failure. Heavy metals rapidly deplete Selenium in the body.
Mitochondria are the battery pack of your cells which determine your body’s inherent ability to function efficiently; without which none of these primary connections are possible. Anti-mitochondrial antibodies are elevated in children with Autism; a process which suffocates Eukaryotic cells (complex structures enclosed within membranes). Vaccine derived heavy metal-antibiotic-detergent-virus sludge targets the Mitochondria while neutralizing major anti-oxidants in the body, causing Ischemia. “Primordial eukaryotic cells lacked ability to use oxygen” – excerpt/Autistic case file. One of the most serious adverse effects of vaccine derived synergistic toxicity affecting many children & teens; in particular a PRIMARY piece in the puzzle affecting all children coping with Early Onset Autism? Mitochondrial Disorder (symptoms include muscular weakness/Hypotonia, developmental delays, epilepsy, vision & heart problems).
So you’re seeing a chain reaction affecting 7 major antioxidants & 2 trace minerals in the body, all essential to regulating your overall metabolism, Liver, Kidney, Thyroid, Methylation, including Mitochondrial function, generally neutralized in these children with Autism; and all the evidence points to heavy metal toxicity derived from standard Immunization Vaccines (25 injections by 15 months).
Note: “Tylenol uses up glutathione (GSH) stores and metabolites of acetaminophen accumulates causing direct damage to liver cells. You want their glutathione levels to be optimum because GSH main purpose is for detoxifying and eliminating heavy metals and other environmental toxins. It is essential for the function of the gut, maintains Vitamins C and E, maintains mitochondrial integrity, protects against intracellular viruses and so much more. Anything that compromises the level of glutathione needed to maintain health like Tylenol should be avoided.” Brian Jepson, MD
Unlocking the keys to natural immunity requires a holistic approach to the complex functioning of the body. Every major organ & gland are entirely interdependent, a magnificently delicate apparatus of interconnections, without any one of which, the entire system of operations will inevitably fail, leading to a chain-reaction of adverse metabolic breakdown & compromised immunity. Case in point, the Liver converts Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) into Calcidiol (25-hydroxycholecalciferol – aids in prevention of chronic Liver disease, Thyroid disorders, Diabetes, Cancer), from which the kidneys generate Calcitriol (active form of Vitamin D designed to increase calcium levels in the body in order to treat skeletal and tissue-related calcium deficiencies caused by kidney or thyroid disorders).
‘The liver and kidney have important enzymes that change vitamin D from the sun or food to the biologically active form of vitamin D. People with chronic kidney and liver disease are at increased risk of low vitamin D because they lack these enzymes.’
‘Calcitriol (1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D or 1,25(OH)2D3): Calcitriol is made from calcidiol, in the kidneys as well as in other organs, and is the most potent steroid hormone in the human body. Referred to as “activated vitamin D,” calcitriol is said by the experts to “unlock” a cell’s DNA library. Acting through the vitamin D receptors (VDR), calcitriol controls the expression of genes, activating about two-thirds of the ones it controls, suppressing the rest.’ Vitamin D Council
‘Once out of the lysosome (the cells’ garbage disposal system – degrades the products of ingestion & worn out organelles such as mitochondria, handles the products of receptor-mediated endocytosis such as the receptor, ligand and associated membrane) , calcidiol binds to intracellular vitamin D binding protein (IDBP) which facilitates the localization of vitamin D metabolites in the cell.’
‘The liver plays a unique role in controlling carbohydrate metabolism by maintaining glucose concentrations in a normal range over both short and long periods of times. In type 2 diabetes, alterations in hepatic glucose metabolism are observed, i.e. increased postabsorptive glucose production and impaired suppression of glucose production together with diminished glucose uptake following carbohydrate ingestion. The simultaneous overproduction of glucose and fatty acids in liver further stimulates the secretion of insulin by the pancreatic cells, and elicits further peripheral insulin resistance thereby establishing a vicious circle.’ C Postic, R Dentin, J Girard
’Low vitamin D levels and bone disease are well-recognized complications of “cholestatic” liver disease, which decreases the production or flow of bile. More recently, studies have confirmed low vitamin D levels in noncholestatic liver disease.‘ Satheesh Nair, MD, FACP
‘VDBP (vitamin D-binding protein/Gc-globulin) is converted to macrophage-activating factor by the action of either b-galactosidase from B lymphocytes or sialidase from T lymphocytes on carbohydrate side chains of the protein…VDBP-binding sites are upregulated on activated neutrophils (’plays an important role in the inflammatory response to Gram-negative bacterial infections‘), suggesting that changes in its circulating concentration might occur in inflammatory conditions. Consistent with this, in vitro work has shown that GC transcription is enhanced by proinflammatory cytokines (those which make disease worse).’ British Medical Journal
‘Recent Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative guidelines have raised concerns of 25-hydroxyvitamin D, or calcidiol, insufficiency and deficiency in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) not yet on dialysis therapy…a high prevalence of calcidiol deficiency and insufficiency in patients with moderate and severe CKD not on dialysis therapy regardless of geographic location.‘ Department of Medicine, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, IN
The Lymphocytes in your lungs also depend on Vitamin D3 (steroid hormone known as “cholecalciferol” derived primarily from direct exposure to sunlight & via fatty fish, egg yolks, and dairy products) in order to process Vitamins C & E, while regulating proinflammatory cytokines (those which make disease worse); thus staving off infections, ie. colds, influenza, asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia.
‘Vitamin D’s metabolic product, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D (calcitriol), is actually a secosteroid hormone that is the key which unlocks binding sites on the human genome. The human genome contains more than 2,700 binding sites for calcitriol; those binding sites are near genes involved in virtually every known major disease of humans’.…’The liver converts vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) to calcidiol…those with CLD ( chronic liver disease) have reduced vitamin D blood levels because the liver’s ability to convert vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) to circulating vitamin D (calcidiol) is reduced…risk of bone diseases such as osteoporosis which often accompanies chronic liver disease because of the liver’s reduced function.‘
Children coping with Autism already have a compromised immune system, made worse by the presence of Mycoplasma bacteria in the gut. Notably, Mycoplasma are inherently resistant to a vast majority of antibiotics on the market. And remember, vaccines & antibiotics kill good (probiotic) bacteria in the intestines leaving room for yeast overgrowth. Prolonged root growth perforates the walls of the intestines – a critical determinate in all cases of Autism. These individuals suffer from systemic bacterial (Mycoplasma series), viral (vaccine derived live viruses &/or attenuated strands of DNA/RNA material) and fungal infections (gut “flora”/Candida/yeast overgrowth caused by prolonged use of vaccines & antibiotics) in the gut.
Dr. Andrew Wakefield already identified this common denominator, characteristic vulnerability (manifesting as Inflammatory Bowel Disease) in 1998, in twelve Autistic patients – ‘intestinal abnormalities, ranging from lymphoid nodular hyperplasia to aphthoid ulceration‘. Seven of the twelve children were diagnosed by Professor John Walker-Smith. Each child had received the MMR vaccine (Urabi strain triple live virus); and subsequently developed ‘Intermediate Colitis’ & various “classic” symptoms of Early Onset Autism (including rash, fever, head banging, screaming attacks, hyperactivity, growling voice).
Mycoplasma require sterol (cholesterol) for growth & enrichment with ascitic fluid (‘accumulation of fluid in the abdomen…may be a direct result of a malignant process or secondary to an unrelated comorbidity’). In other words, by extension, the accumulation of “toxic” or pathogenic cholesterol throughout the gut presupposes, in fact, may be a trigger point, in instigating, spurring on, ultimately PROLONGING Autism related neurological, physiological, immunological & behavioral manifestations. ‘Mycoplasma species contain sterols in their membranes, a characteristic that distinguishes them from other procaryotes…The requirement by Mycoplasma organisms for cholesterol has been demonstrated by many workers.’
Systemic Intracellular Bacterial Infections (Mycoplasma, Chlamydia, Borrelia species) in Neurodegenerative (MS, ALS) and Behavioral Disorders (ASD): ‘Patients with neurodegenerative & behavioral disorders (ie. Autism Spectrum Disorder) often have systemic bacterial, viral and/or fungal infections that may play an important role in their pathogenesis…evidence for systemic intracellular bacterial and viral infections in a majority of patients. For example, examination of blood leukocytes for evidence of ‘Mycolplasma spp.’, ‘Chlamydia Pneumonia’, ‘Borrelia Burgdorferi’ and other infections on the polymerase chain reaction revealed high incidences of systemic co-infections…most common co-infection found was ‘Mycoplasma’ species.The results suggest chronic intracellular bacterial infections are common features of neuro-degenerative and behavioral disorders.’ Garth L. Nicholson, Institute for Molecular Medicine
Note: ‘Commercial vaccines have been examined containing microorganism, and one study found that approximately 6% of commercial vaccines were contaminated with Mycoplasmas.’
‘Mycoplasmas are the smallest free-living microorganisms, being about 300 nm in diameter. They are bounded by a triple-layered membrane and, unlike conventional bacteria, do not have a rigid cell wall. Hence, they are not susceptible to penicillins and other antibiotics that act on this structure. They are, however, susceptible to a variety of other broad-spectrum antibiotics, most of which only inhibit their multiplication and do not kill them. The tetracyclines have always been in the forefront of antibiotic usage, particularly for genital tract infections, but macrolides are also widely used for respiratory tract infections.
Apart from the penicillins, mycoplasmas are innately resistant to some other antibiotics, for example the rifampicins. In addition, some may develop resistance, either by gene mutation or by acquisition of a resistance gene, to antibiotics to which they are usually sensitive. Resistance of mycoplasmas to tetracyclines is common and due to acquisition of the tetM gene. The antibiotic susceptibility pattern may be influenced greatly by the source of the mycoplasma; for example, one recovered from a contaminated eukaryotic cell culture that has been subjected to extensive antibiotic treatment may have an antibiotic profile quite different from the same mycoplasmal species that has been recovered directly from a human or animal source. Mycoplasmas may be difficult to eradicate from human or animal hosts or from cell cultures by antibiotic treatment because of resistance to the antibiotic, or because it lacks cidal activity, or because there is invasion of eukaryotic cells by some mycoplasmas. Eradication may be particularly difficult in immunosuppressed or immunodeficient individuals, particularly those who are hypogammaglobulinaemic. The regimes that are most likely to be effective in the treatment of respiratory or genitourinary mycoplasmal infections are presented.’
“What happens in these children [is that] they do not develop normal gut flora from birth…Gut flora (Candida/yeast overgrowth) is a hugely important part of our human physiology. Recently research in Scandinavia has demonstrated that 90 percent of all cells and all genetic material in a human body is our own gut flora. We are just a shell… a habitat for this mass of microbes inside us. We ignore them at our own peril. As a result, their digestive system—instead of being a source of nourishment for these children—becomes a major source of toxicity. These pathogenic microbes inside their digestive tract damage the integrity of the gut wall. So all sort of toxins and microbes flood into the bloodstream of the child, and get into the brain of the child. That usually happens in the second year of life in children who were breast fed because breastfeeding provides a protection against this abnormal gut flora. In children who were not breastfed, I see the symptoms of autism developing in the first year of life. So breastfeeding is crucial to protect these children.
Sensory information turns into this mush; into a noise in the child’s brain, and from this noise the child cannot learn. They cannot decipher anything useful, That’s why they don’t learn how to communicate. They don’t learn how to understand language, how to use language, how to develop all the natural instinctive behaviors and coping behaviors that normal children develop. The second year of life is crucial in the maturation of the brain of the baby. That’s when communication skills develop and how instinctive behaviors develop and play skills develop in children and coping behaviors develop. If the child’s brain is clogged with toxicity, the child misses that window of opportunity of learning and starts developing autism depending on the mixture of toxins, depending on how severe the whole condition is, and how severely abnormal the gut flora is in the child.
As far as science knows, the baby inside the mother’s womb during nine months of gestation is sterile. The baby’s gut is sterile. The baby acquires its gut flora at the time of birth, when the baby goes through the birth canal of the mother. So whatever lives in mom’s birth canal, in mom’s vagina, becomes the baby’s gut flora. So what lives in mom’s vagina? It’s a very richly populated area of a woman’s body. The vaginal flora comes from the bowel. So if the mother has abnormal gut flora, she will have abnormal flora in her birth canal. Fathers are not exempt because fathers also have gut flora, and that gut flora populates their groin and they share their groin flora with the mother on a regular basis.
In parallel with beneficial microbes in the healthy gut, scientists have found thousands of different species of downright pathogenic disease-causing microbes; bacteria, viruses, fungi and other microbes. But as long as the good ones predominate in your gut, they control all the pathogens…They keep them in small colonies and they don’t allow them to proliferate. Every course of antibiotics tends to wipe out the beneficial bacteria and that gives a window of opportunity for the pathogens to proliferate, to grow uncontrolled, and to occupy new niches in your gut. The beneficial flora recovers, but different species of it take between two weeks to two months to recover in the gut and that’s a window of opportunity for various pathogens to overgrow.” Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride
‘After vaccinations some children start to get recurring ear infections. Ear infections are rarely mentioned as a side effect of vaccines, after all it is not as serious as when a child develops Autism or starts having seizures. However you may be surprised to learn that a child can develop life long learning disabilities as a result. When a child is given antibiotics prescribed to stop the ear infection, the antibiotic kills off the bad bacteria but since it can not discriminate, it kills off the healthy good bacteria as well. Antibiotic actually means Anti-life. When the good bacteria is killed, yeast, a normal part of the lower gut region start to grow out of control because the healthy bacteria that keeps it where it belongs is reduced. The yeast send out spores that eat the mucous lining of the intestines. The mucous lining aids and protects us during digestion. The spores chomp at it like little “Pac-men.” It is at this point that children often develop food allergies and sensitivities. The yeast proliferate the insides. Children may begin to get stomach aches, headaches, mood swings, Monday they may complain of Diarea, Weds., of constipation. Adults think that the child is a hypochondriac, but actually the yeast travel and cause a variety of discomforts.
Many of these children become hyperactive, can not seem to sit still, become disorganized, whine a lot, have trouble concentrating as well as poor memory. When taken to a doctor they can be diagnosed as having ADHD, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder when what they really have is a systemic internal yeast infection. It is also known more simply as Candida. Additionally as a result of chronic ear infections the child may become a “Slow learner,” or end up in Special Education. The child may have an, “Auditory processing problem,” Often not diagnosed, the teacher will think the child is not paying attention or following directions. An Audiologist will say that the ears are fine but actually there is a delay in processing oral instructions so they tend to catch the first or second, but miss the third or fourth instruction.
I believe that the gut is as important as the brain, that the gut affects the brain more than the brain affects the gut. With many years working individually with children who have a variety of issues from Autism, ADD, Dyslexia as well as the average “C” kids commonly known as, “pain- in- the -butt,” many symptoms and behaviors can be resolved…When you kill the yeast the symptoms go away. It is harder to do than you might think. Yeast thrive on sugar and all carbohydrates. Bread, crackers, pasta, enable the yeast to grow by the millions after a meal. Fruit is also a sugar.Some experts believe that by stopping all carbohydrates and sugars the yeast will disappear. I disagree. The rate at which they grow slows down but the yeast overgrowth already present remain. Some doctors prescribe anti fungal ointments but that only relieves the outside, the orifices that the yeast try to come out of as in the nose, ears etc. This does nothing to cure the systemic internal problem. Changing the diet helps but if you ever had a teen, it is not reliable. In the book, “The Yeast Connection by Dr. Crook, ” the reader can find different ways to alleviate yeast. Some of my favorites include eating garlic, and items such as Caprylic Acid can be purchased in a good health food store. There are items such as “Yeast Guard’ that are of help. just consult with a manager of a health food establishment. I am also not adverse to some anti fungal medications that can be prescribed by your MD. He or she might prescribe, “Oral Nystatin, or Diflucan,” for a short term followed by a natural approach afterwards. Either way it is up to you.’ Shelley Tzorfas M.F.A.
‘Today, we’re seeing new nutritional technology that supports these processes, and it is doing so with profound credibility. While it is absolutely essential that electrolyte balances be reestablished and maintained post vaccine, it is also crucial to ensure that “indirect antioxidant” support be provided. This is regarding the inter-cellular environment. Blood ORAC levels are one thing to be aware of, but the damage and assaults to the organelles inside the cell walls are absolutely essential to be protected. DNA is the blueprint of life and when it gets damaged, by radiation assaults, stress, or improper nutrition, another assault from vaccine ingredients can be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. Stress can be measured in the blood via Tbars, (thiobarbituric acid-reacting substances). “The effects of ‘Protandim’ (supplement) may go beyond direct induction of the SOD and/or catalase genes. The antioxidant enzymes form a system of mutual protection; superoxide can inactivate both catalase and glutathione peroxidase ,whereas hydrogen peroxide can inactivate the cytosolic SOD.”
It is absolutely mission critical that every attempt be made to rid the body of any toxic assault, and when it has been done in the name of medicine, via a failed and flawed premise, (vaccine preventable disease) the consequences can be severely devastating. In a nutshell, magnesium chloride is the key mineral requirement in the detox/chelate process that will support recovery from vaccine damage. Adding to that, we are seriously dependent upon powerful remediation of free radical assaults that come from stress such as that induced by heavy metals, mercury and aluminum, as well as, the list of ingredients in any vaccine. Indirect antioxidant support via herbal approaches support this process and do so much more than any other approach known historically that they cannot be overlooked. Beyond this process, a diet rich in whole foods, unprocessed, and safe, clean drinking water are essential in the long road of recovery.’ Patrick J. Hatwan, Naturopath
“Without removing toxins and acids from all organs, cells, and tissues, and without providing the essential nutritional building blocks like magnesium, the body will not be able to heal completely. Magnesium is responsible for metabolism of vitamins B, C and E, and it also plays a key role in the enhancement of glutathione. When dealing with autism spectrum and other neurological disorders in children, it is important to know the signs of low magnesium: restlessness, can’t keep still, body rocking, grinding teeth, hiccups, sensitive to noise, poor attention span, poor concentration, irritable, aggressive, ready to explode, or easily stressed”. Dr. Mark Sircus, Transdermal Magnesium Therapy
Detoxification & Restoration of the Body – 2 stage, 9 step process toward eventual full recovery:
Stage 1 involves:
A. Solving the Gut problem
B. Restoring Thyroid function
C. Chelation of heavy metal “sludge”
D. Replenishing essential Trace Mineral base
E. Replenishing essential Antioxidant base
F. Elimination of toxic food choices
Stage 2 (Transformation) involves:
A. Re-energizing of the Mitochondria
B. System-wide re-alignment of natural immunity
C. Restoration of the nerve center “electrical grid system”
Solving The Gut problem
Until you take proactive steps to solve the Gut problem, you will invariably continue to endure sub-standard health – everything from a deterioration in cell viability/macro-degeneration of cells (Mitochondria related), loss of bone density/arthritis, compromised immunity (susceptibility to Influenza, Colds, chronic headaches etc), persistent Thyroid dysfunction (Liver related), food allergies, low energy (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), memory loss, depression/anger, weight gain/loss, hair loss, anemia, eczema, Respiratory/Circulatory issues. Bowel distress/Inflammatory Bowel Disease, to a host of crippling neurological/neurodegenerative & neurodevelopmental diseases/disorders including Autism Spectrum Disorder.
The majority of us are plagued with some degree of Gut (Bowel/Intestinal) dysfunction; a byproduct of prolonged/acute exposure to vaccines, antibiotics, non-organic meat products (Prions), Trans Fats (“bad”cholesterol), Gluten, Casein, household (Commercial) & environmental (Industrial) carcinogens/toxins – involves the leeching out of healthy “probiotic” bacteria & proliferation of invasive “pathogenic” bacteria through “scarring” perforations in gut wall lining; leaving you vulnerable to infections.
There are several “red flag” indicators commonly associated with chronic Gut dysfunction:
1. Gluten & Casein intolerance in the Gut
2. Gut “flora” (yeast overgrowth/Candida)
3. Mycoplasma (resistant to antibiotics)
4. Prions (meat derived bacterial contaminant)
Gluten ‘is not a protein itself but rather a protein composite, composed of the proteins glutenin and gliadin (in wheat), secalin (in rye) and hordein (in barley), which are elastic proteins in the protein family known as prolamins. Gluten is insoluble in water and comes from the endosperm within the seeds of grass-related grains.‘
Casein ‘is the predominant phosphoprotein found in fresh milk. When coagulated with rennet, casein is sometimes called paracasein…As it exists in milk, it is a salt of calcium…Casein is not coagulated by heat. It is precipitated by acids and by rennin, a proteolytic enzyme obtained from the stomachs of calves. The enzyme trypsin can hydrolyze off a phosphate-containing peptone.’
Gluten & Casein both contain ‘glutamine and proline rich 33-mer peptides‘; identified as a primary source of dietary intolerance within the body. ‘With maldigestion, short chains of these amino acids, known as peptides, will develop in excess amounts and enter the bloodstream. Peptides from proteins such as gluten and casein, called “exorphins,” are biologically active. They interact with opiate receptors in the brain and have the same effects as opiate drugs like heroin and morphine and are also addictive. There are 15 opioid sequences in one molecule of gluten. In fact, the peptides can be up to 30 times more potent than morphine.‘
Casein, in particular, represents ‘85 percent of the protein in dairy‘…‘Four types of casein protein make up about 80% of all proteins in cow’s milk. Because casein is insoluble in water, in milk it exists as a suspension of micelles. Milk can turn into cheese by adding rennet, a proteolytic enzyme from the stomach of calves that will precipitate the casein protein..casein can be broken down into casomorphin, a peptide fragment with opioid qualities, which has been suggested to increase the release of histamine. It is also thought that casomorphin is responsible for aggravating the symptoms of autism and because casein and gluten are so similar, many children with autism spectrum disorders are on a casein and gluten-free diet.’
While a growing number of nutritionists advocate the phasing out/complete elimination of dairy (including all meat) to ensure a health diet (“nutrients from animal-based foods increased tumor development while nutrients from plant-based foods decreased tumor development” – Dr. T. Colin Campbell, The China Study), the actual source of cancer causing aflatoxin (mold-related contaminant/gut flora) may have more to with the Pasteurization process itself. ‘Pasteurization, low-temperature dehydration, high-temperature spray-drying (which creates carcinogens), and fermentation all affect the structure of casein differently and thereby would affect its physiological behavior.‘; coupled, more recently, with the widespread use of Monsanto’s genetically modified Bovine Growth Hormones (rBGH), Posilac (begun in 1993), injected into cattle, theoretically, to generate a “higher yield” of milk production ‘increases milk production 10-15% and in some cases up to 40%. Approximately 17% of all cows in the US are given the artificial growth hormone.’ Therefore Casein, in and of itself, may have genuinely beneficial properties after all – but only in it’s raw milk form.
Most countries are clearly exercising a select ban on bovine growth hormone contaminated products, via the patent exchange loophole. Full scale importation of Kraft dairy products continues unabated throughout the EU and around the world. With increasing WTO led enforcement measures (Codex Alimentarius) threatening the very existence of raw “unadulterated” milk (eventually all organic produce) on farmer’s market-type store shelves, there is little doubt we are headed for an imminent health crisis. Additionally, inter-generational (bacterial) cross contamination of calves via breast milk infected with rBGH is yet another critical factor which has seemingly been overlooked; that potentially, this ‘cancer causing GMO hybrid bacterium’ may have already jumped herds and begun infecting otherwise ‘steroid free’ cows.
Current scientific literature identifies both Gluten & Casein intolerance as predetermining “co-triggers” for Celiac/Coeliac disease. ‘There are several different types of intolerance. Coeliac disease is one where certain peptides from gliadin and gluten are toxic to the gut mucosa due to lack of break down.‘…’Patients with coeliac disease (CD) on a gluten-free diet may still have gastrointestinal symptoms. On clinical grounds cow’s milk (CM) protein sensitivity may be suspected…Casein, in contrast to α-lactalbumin, induced an inflammatory response similar to that produced by CM. A mucosal inflammatory response similar to that elicited by gluten was produced by CM protein in about 50% of the patients with coeliac disease. Casein, in particular, seems to be involved in this reaction.‘
However, Celiac Disease (CD) & Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) are virtually indistinguishable conditions associated with gut deficiency; and therefore, by extension, precursors to/role players in the onset of Early Onset Autism. ‘Chromosome 19p13 (Celiac Disease determinate gene) was also shown to have significant linkage to inflammatory bowel disease (IBD6) and recently our group showed an association of ulcerative colitis with MYO9B and Morbus Crohn, albeit weaker.’
The Medical Industry would wrongly have you believe that ‘genetic predisposition plays a key role‘ in determining Celiac Disease…’both a disease of malabsorption, meaning nutrients are not absorbed properly, and an abnormal immune reaction to gluten…with ‘symptoms of diarrhea and fatty stools, and failure to thrive and grow at normal rates.‘ Similarly, Inflammatory Bowel Disease is labelled as genetic in origin, ‘It has long been recognized from epidemiological data that inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), have a strong genetic predisposition, interacting with unknown environmental drivers to render susceptible individuals at risk for relapsing intestinal inflammation.‘
Severe dietary deficiencies, coupled with a premature “breach” of the delicate “electrical grid” nerve center (Myelin sheath, Blood-Brain barrier, Meninges) are the real culprits – an intervention of multiple toxic ingredients (primarily vaccine derived heavy metal “sludge” & antibiotics) at a critical stage in early development, the underlying contamination of the “bedrock” gut; and the ensuing depletion of vital nutrients, which renders an infant completely vulnerable to neuro-developmental disorders such as Autism.
Gut “flora”, a toxic byproduct of Gluten & Casein intolerance (including that of “pathogenic” bacteria/”bad” cholesterol), is defined by an accumulation of yeast overgrowth (diet related) within the gut, consisting of “pathogenic microbes inside the digestive tract (which) damage the integrity of the gut wall…all sort of toxins and microbes flood into the bloodstream of the child, and get into the brain of the child…The baby’s gut is sterile. The baby acquires its gut flora at the time of birth, when the baby goes through the birth canal of the mother. So whatever lives in mom’s birth canal,in mom’s vagina, becomes the baby’s gut flora. So what lives in mom’s vagina? It’s a very richly populated area of a woman’s body. The vaginal flora comes from the bowel. So if the mother has abnormal gut flora,she will have abnormal flora in her birth canal.“
Vaccine damaged babies/infants/children (and adults alike) are hyper-sensitive to “bad” (pathogenic) cholesterol. Mycoplasma thrives on this steady “food” source; generating a vicious cycle within the gut of antibiotic-resistant bacterial dependency. It is essential to eliminate any/all dietary related avenues feeding/supporting this “habit” – chiefly “Trans” Fats (Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil), Processed Sugars/Sweeteners/High Fructose Corn Syrup, Iodized Salts, any/all GMO products, & Pasteurized Milk (Casein related) & insoluble grain protein composite (Gluten).
Prions are yet another source of adverse bacterial build-up that threaten the integrity of the gut; promoting the spread of ‘germ-line mutations‘, causing ‘familial prion diseases.’ – referred to as ‘transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs)…a family of rare progressive neurodegenerative disorders‘ (ie. ‘Mad Cow disease’ & Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease). ‘The most compelling evidence that new variant Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease is caused by BSE prions comes from studies of mice expressing the bovine PrP transgene (bovine growth hormone). The incubation times, neuropathological features, and patterns of PrPSc deposition in these transgenic mice are the same whether the inoculate originated from the brains of cattle with BSE or from humans with new variant Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease.‘ Prion type cross-contamination is ‘distinguished by long incubation periods‘ within select herds of cattle; derived almost exclusively, from non-organic, Industrial size factory farm sources.
Restoring Thyroid Function
The Thyroid Gland serves a tremendous purpose in the body. It is key to overall health; considered a master gland which indirectly regulates your metabolism. The extent of its ability to function normally determines the viability of your heath – it is a bell weather indicator. The Thyroid produces T3 & T4 hormones (Iodine Atoms). Iodine helps regulate metabolism in the body. Thyroid synthesizes vital T3 (rare) from T4 (plentiful). The body needs 150 mg per day – 80% comes from T4 conversion to T3 in the Liver. The Pituitary gland also plays a role in Thyroid function by moderating the production of both T3 and T4 (Iodine Atoms). The Hypothalamous in turn regulates Pituitary function. T3 & T4 regulate body temperature & metabolic rate of every cell in the body (biochemical reactivity).
A compromised immune system is much more vulnerable to infection & seasonal influenza. Vaccines undermine the immune system by introducing live viruses & toxic heavy metals to an already overloaded network: systematically stripping the body of its capacity to harness vital trace minerals (chiefly Selenium, Zinc, Magnesium) & antioxidants (chiefly Vitamins A, B6/B12, C, D3, E + Glutathione). The synergy of immunological, neurological & physiological well being hangs in the balance. Thus the delicacy of our glands must be protected. Otherwise a domino effect of sickness & long term deterioration of health are inevitable. For children coping with Autism the impact of Thyroid deficiency is even that much greater. The Thyroid is further weakened & neutralized by processed food & white sugars, All sorts of problems can occur. Diabetes 2 is common amongst the youngest & most vulnerable.
It may come as a surprise that 99.9% of us are Thyroid deficient; somewhere on the scale ranging from Hyper-Hypothyroidism – which means we’re all essentially Diabetic. Diabetes was quite rare before the Depression Era. 1933 saw a 1000% jump in the disorder, a result of the mass marketing of Margarine & Crisco (poly-saturated/trans fats); which replaced Butter & Flax/Coconut/Hemp Oil in many homes. ‘Thyroid hormones also influence glucose homeostasis, including impacting circulating insulin levels, intestinal absorption and uptake of glucose into fat and muscle tissues.’
Type 1 Diabetes is defined in terms of failure of the body to metabolize carbohydrates due to insufficient Insulin production in the Pancreas, marked by an elevated blood sugar level.
Type 2 Diabetes encompasses those who are now Insulin resistant (escalating in numbers).
Type 3 Diabetes is the latest metastasised version, triggered by hypersensitivity to Cell Phone/Computer/Microwave Radiation; related to another 21st Century condition known as ‘Multiple Chemical Sensitivities‘. MCS, albeit lesser known, is actually quite similar to Thyroid Disorder. Long term chronic exposure to environmental toxins weakens the body’s immune system; in the case of a growing number this leads to an acute sensitivity to commonly used chemicals products including perfumes, air fresheners & laundry softeners. The symptoms, which are chronic and may become acute in a crisis, include fatigue and respiratory, digestive, cardiovascular, dermatological and neurological problems.
‘Thyrotoxic patients show an increased glucose turnover with increased glucose absorption through the gastrointestinal tract, postabsorptive hyperglycaemia and elevated hepatic glucose output, along with elevated fasting or postprandial insulin and proinsulin levels, elevated free fatty acid concentrations and elevated peripheral glucose transport and utilisation. In peripheral tissues there is a massive arrival of glucose to the cells that overwhelms the Krebs cycle resulting in an increased metabolism of glucose through the nonoxidative pathway. Lactate produced in great quantities in the cells returns to the liver and participates in the Cori cycle where four ATP molecules are wasted for each glucose molecule that is created.’
Anyone with Hyper/Hypothyroidism needs to redouble their efforts to rapidly cleanse the system. You will undoubtedly recognize some of the following symptoms in terms of your own current (or past) health status,
Overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism): An overactive thyroid releases too much T4 and T3 into the bloodstream, causing the metabolism to speed up too much. The most common cause is Graves’ disease. This is an autoimmune condition in which antibodies behave like TSH and stimulate the thyroid uncontrollably. Complications of untreated hyperthyroidism include liver damage, cancer and heart failure, which can lead to death.
Symptoms of an overactive thyroid include: Sweating and sensitivity to heat, Weight loss (despite an increased appetite), Nervousness, agitation, anxiety, Tremor (shaking) of the hands, Rapid pulse, Fatigue, Diarrhea, Bulging eyes, Goitre.
Underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism): An underactive thyroid releases too little T4 and T3 into the bloodstream, causing the metabolism to slow down too much. The most common cause is Hashimoto’s disease. This is an autoimmune condition in which white blood cells and antibodies attack the thyroid gland. If not treated, the metabolism will continue to slow and will ultimately (in 10 to 15 years) lead to death. 90% of Hypothyroidism occurs in women. On average 1/3 of women over 55 have low thyroid.
Symptoms of an underactive thyroid include: Lethargy & Fatigue, Diarrhea, Feeling cold (even on warm days), Unusual weight gain, Depression, Reduced concentration (brain fog), Puffiness of the face, Hair loss, Dry skin, Constipation, Goitre.
Solutions to Thyroid problem: Nutrients & Supplements available –
1. Iodine plays a crucial role in regulating your metabolism (sources include Himalayan Salt – contains Iodine in proportional trace amounts with other 70 + trace minerals, Raw Kelp, Seaweed – combine with meals several times per week, Potassium Iodide – effective supplement/pill form, Potassium Iodate – used by the Military in DU type combat zones/only known chemical which will prevent the Thyroid from absorbing Iodine following a nuclear blast (counters ‘radioiodine‘), Rosemary – natural herb which contains rosmarinic acid (protects against gamma ray induced damage more effectively than water-soluble antioxidants, delays formulation of toxic malonyldialdehyde, inhibits skin alterations).
2. Essential Fatty Acids (Fish Oil, Cod Liver Oil, Flax Seed/Oil, Borage/Black Currant Oil).
3. Selenium helps convert T4 to T3, supported by Vitamin E. ‘Cadmium & mercury deplete selenium in the body (essential for their removal). Selenium atoms combine with cadmium & mercury atoms and escort them out of the body via the bile system. When selenium is depleted by cadmium and/or mercury, there is less selenium to form the deiodinase enzymes that convert T4 to T3, resulting in low T3 and hypothyroidism. Also there is less selenium to form glutathione peroxidase, one of the body’s prime antioxidants.’ (Brazil nuts – dried, unblanched, Sesame Seeds, Mollusks, Oyster, Lobster, Shrimp, Herring, Liver, Egg, Beef, Oats, Brown Rice, Garlic, Broccoli, Wheat Germ, Whole Grains, Mushrooms, Red Grapes).
4. Zinc stimulates the Pituitary which signals Thyroid to make more Thyroid hormones.
5. Vitamin D3 is necessary for Thyroid production.
6. Vitamin E is a vital Tocopherol. ‘Vitamin E facilitates selenium metabolism and is therefore critical for normal thyroid function. Excessive supplementation of vitamin E without selenium may deplete selenium and therefore contribute to thyroid disease (both hypo and hyper).‘
7. L-tyrosine is an Amino Acid precursor to T4 & Co Q-10, synergistic, also heart muscle supplier.
8. Alternate antioxidant sources (Alpha Lipoic Acid & Grape Seed Extract).
9. Progesterone deficiency triggers Hypothyroidism.
By merely treating the symptoms of Diabetes & Thyroid Disorder the purveyors of Western Medicine ensure you a lifetime dependency on Pharmaceutical drugs (which will further erode your health); while ultimately doing nothing to address the underlying causes of the problem. All of us are coping with some degree of Thyroid Disorder, either Hypo or Hyperthyroid. Generations of mass vaccine programs, the resulting vaccine trauma our parents & their parents inherited was passed on to us. Meaning we are all acutely vulnerable to environmental & dietary toxins; one of the main side effects of heavy metal/live virus build-up in the body is this breakdown of the auto-immune system. Your body’s inherent defense mechanisms & primary Thyroid functioning (which regulates your overall metabolism primarily by preventing the over-abundance of free-radicals) are severely compromised by vaccine derived toxicity. This in turn inhibits the body’s ability to process nutrients effectively.
“If you’re shutting down a symptom in the body so you mask the symptom you are shortening your life and accelerating your demise; especially in light of the fact that almost all diseases, if you back-track them far enough, you will find either a defect in nutrition or a defect in the absorption of nutrients in the GI system (Gastro-intestinal tract) from the digestive system. This is the core of all health & wellness and the core of all disease – nutrition & the digestive system.” Pharmacist, GNC Radio Host Ben Fuchs
The Pineal Gland, considered the master gland, which oversees the entire process of metabolic function in the body, ‘five times superior to glutathione in scavenging free hydroxyl radicals‘ (referred to as the ‘third eye’ in ancient cultures), traditionally grew to the size of a quarter in the human body, before the introduction of sodium fluoride into the water supply & widespread use in toothpaste products – when natural immunity could thrive unhindered by such toxic detritus.
Today, the average size of the Pineal Gland in most consumers in the west has diminished to that of a withered dime.
‘In mammals, the pineal gland is located above the thalamus of the brain between the cerebral cortices. In the 1990s, Jennifer Luke of the UK discovered that the pineal gland is a major site of fluoride accumulation within the body – with higher concentrations of fluoride than either teeth or bone. Luke’s studies indicate that the accumulation of fluoride in the pineal gland can reduce the gland’s synthesis of melatonin, a hormone that helps regulate the onset of puberty. Fluoride-treated animals were found to have reduced levels of circulating melatonin and an earlier onset puberty than untreated animals. Luke concluded:
“The safety of the use of fluorides ultimately rests on the assumption that the developing enamel organ is most sensitive to the toxic effects of fluoride. The results from this study suggest that the pinealocytes may be as susceptible to fluoride as the developing enamel organ”‘
‘The pineal gland is innervated by sympathetic axons and by axons coming directly from the brain. Besides sympathetic innervation, the pineal gland receives axons directly from the brain that enter through the stalk. The function of these fibers relative to the physiology of the pineal is unknown.‘ Vollrath L. Functional anatomy of the human pineal gland
‘Ancient manuscripts call the different glands in the body seals, and by a seal, we mean something which opens and closes. Ancient medical literature states that the glands actually operate according to frequency, a term which is becoming very popular these days in nuclear and quantum physics. The frequency of the glands was known thousands of years ago, but we have forgotten much of this information. In ancient terms, the pineal gland was called the sixth seal or sixth gland of the body.
The pineal gland controls the five other glands below it which are the thyroid which produces thyroxine to energize our cells, the thymus which protects you against infections and cancer, the pancreas which is involved with blood sugar and secreting the hormone insulin, the adrenal gland which responds every time you are under stress; and the first gland is the male and female sex organs and their hormones. Therefore restoring the sixth gland, the pineal gland, will have an impact on all those other glands and their functions in the body. When the pineal gland is at its peak performance, it turns a golden colour and emits a black juice as well as a golden oil. That black juice would be the melanin colour of the organs and every other area of the body which has a pigment.‘ Dr. Mona Harrison
Sodium Fluoride is an Endocrine disruptor which specifically targets the Thyroid & Pineal Gland:
– Attacks immune proteins so they don’t recognize body proteins, resulting in autoimmune disease, and in particular autoimmune hypothyroidism (Hashimotto’s Disease)
– Slows process where iodine is attached to tyrosine to make the two thyroid hormones T-4 and T-3
– Causes a G protein to switch off the uptake of the active thyroid hormone into the cell
– Inhibits TSH output from the pituitary gland, thus reducing the thyroid hormone output
– Destroys the Pineal Gland which oversees all the other glands (shrivels down from its initial size of a quarter to that of a pea)
Fluoride, like Aspartame, is a Serotonin re-uptake inhibitor. Prozac also contains 94% Fluoride. It is important to know this connection, as these major toxins interfere with our body’s natural response mechanism. The interaction of Aspartame with Fluoride & that of any anti-depressant is usually the tipping point in incidents of extreme violence such as occurred at Columbine High School. Fluoride is also highly reactive to metals such as aluminum (causing aluminum fluoride complex , a powerful de-protein receptor stimulant).
Environmental & Dietary factors which trigger and/or exacerbate Hyper/Hypothyroid conditions in body:
1. Chemicals in environment (PCB, DDT, Herbicides, Insecticides, Fungicides, Lubricants, adhesives).
2. Chlorine & Fluorine in tap water (Iodine mimics), leads to Hypothyroid.
3. Polyunsaturated Food Oil (eg. Corn, Soy – Oxidized oils) – impair T4 to T3 conversion.
4. Sugar & refined Grains – Carbs convert to Glycogen & Triglycerides, suppress hormone levels.
5. Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil – trans fats inhibit conversion of T4 to T3, inhibits Metabolism.
7. Mercury (eg. fish, amalgam fillings) – displaces selenium which is vital for T4 production, T4 to T3.
8. Non Organic Green & Black Tea – contains high levels of Fluoride.
Note: Post Partum Depression may be the result of Hypothyroidism; as the baby leeches the mother of essential Fatty Acids & vital trace minerals during pregnancy (getting the flu shot, during whichever trimester, will also significantly damage Thyroid function) – the hallmarks of thyroid disorder. Pharmacologic doses of estrogen depress the secretion of thyroid hormone by suppressing TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone).
Chelation represents a major priority on any checklist for those suffering from vaccine derived heavy metal toxicity. As Dr. Russell Blaylock has observed, “Live viruses in vaccines are incorporated into your genetic material & passed on to your children…By giving three and sometimes four live viruses together, the risk of developing a lifetime viral infection (a persistent viral infection) increases tremendously.“
The chelation process involves ridding the body of toxic vaccine derived heavy metal “sludge” deposits (including antibiotic, prescription drug, environmental & dietary sources) which have accumulated throughout the brain, bones, organs, and interlacing network of veins, capillaries & arterials that comprise your blood vessels. Unless you take immediate, proactive steps to eradicate this contamination, you will continue to suffer the effects of ill health – compromised immunity, prolonged, increased susceptibility to chronic infections, a host of diseases, macro-degeneration of cells & early death. In tackling this invasive build-up of heavy metal “sludge”, Chelating agents should always be used strategically. A complimentary approach within the parameters of a strict dietary protocol is required; for example the increased consumption of probiotics/kefir which rebuilds bacteria lost in process of cleansing. You must instinctively learn to monitor your progress and adjust levels accordingly when necessary – depending on your specific health constitution.
‘Heavy metals are primarily neurotoxins. There is a synergistic effect between all neurotoxins which is responsible for the illness producing effect…Neurotoxins are substances attracted to the mammalian nervous system. They are absorbed by nerve endings and travel inside the neuron to the cell body. On their way they distrupt vital functions of the nerve cell, such as axonal transport of nutrients, mitochondrial respiration and proper DNA transcription. The body is constantly trying to eliminate neurotoxins via the available exit routes: the liver, kidney, skin and exhaled air. Detox mechanisms include acetylation, sulfation, glucuronidation, oxidation and others. The liver is most important in these processes. Here most elimination products are expelled with the bile into the small intestine and should leave the body via the digestive tract. However, because of the lipophilic/neurotropic nature of the neurotoxins, most are reabsorbed by the abundant nerve endings of the enteric nervous system (ENS) in the intestinal wall. The ENS has more neurons than the spinal chord. From the moment of mucosal uptake the toxins can potentially take 4 different paths:
1. Neuronal uptake and via axonal transport to the spinal chord (sympathetic neurons) or brainstem (parasympathetics) – from here back to the brain.
2. Venous uptake and via the portal vein back to the liver.
3. Lymphatic uptake and via the thoracic duct to the subclavian vein.
4. Uptake by bowel bacteria and tissues of the intestinal tract’.
Natural Methods of Chelation Include:
Activated Charcoal – ‘Activated charcoal is a highly absorbent gritty black material commonly found in air and water filters. Activated charcoal is created by carbonizing organic matter in a kiln under anaerobic conditions and activating the material with oxidizing gases like steam or air at high temperatures. This oxidative process erodes the charcoals internal surfaces and increases its adsorption capacity by creating an internal network of very fine pores. Usually bone char, coconut shells, peat, coal, petroleum coke, and sawdust are the starting materials for making activated charcoal.
It can adsorb most organic chemicals, many inorganic chemicals and countless poisonous substances before they can cause harm. How well activated charcoal really works in practical situations depends on several different factors (ie. the length of time from toxin ingestion to activated charcoal ingestion & the contents of your intestinal fluids and intestinal transport efficiency).
As a general rule, a single large dose of activated charcoal should be taken as soon as possible after ingesting a poison. The amount of activated charcoal should exceed the toxic substance by a factor of eight (a ratio of 8:1). In other words, if you’re poisoned with 5 grams of a chemical, you need to take at least 40 grams of activated charcoal.
Benefits of using Activated Charcoal: Purifies the 6-8 liters of digestive fluids that are secreted daily which in turn helps remove foreign substances from the blood. Absorbs the intoxicant substance and its metabolites that are excreted into the small intestine from the biliary (bile) tract, preventing their reabsorption. Further absorbs drugs that diffuse back into the stomach and intestines. Decreases the detoxification work load of the liver.’
Cautionary note: ‘Charcoal can decrease your body’s absorption of certain nutrients and also interfere with medications (if taken to excess). Because of this, frequent use is not recommended. Activated charcoal may also cause abdominal pain or swelling…Charcoal loses its effectiveness when mixed with chocolate syrup, ice cream, or sherbet.’
Chlorella – ‘One of the main functions chlorella can do that very few nutrients can do is remove heavy metals from the body. It is particularly adept at removing mercury.
Significant research has been done on chlorella and chlorella growth factor. CFG is a liquid extract from the algae cell nucleus containing proteins, vitamins, carbohydrates and nucleic acids. Many reports and clinical trials have shown CGF and chlorella to have activity against a variety of cancers and tumors, in humans and animals. Chlorella is highly nutritious and has many health benefits. However, the digestive tract cannot effectively break down the tough cell wall. It is very important to use “cracked cell”, or, “broken cell wall” chlorella, to obtain these benefits.
New users are generally recommended to start at a low dose and build up gradually. However, some research suggests that small doses mobilize more toxins than they can remove. If you feel unwell rather than that your digestion is adjusting to a new food, that may be an indication that you should increase your intake rather than reduce it, which could make your symptoms worse.’
Liquid Zeolite (Zeolite Rock Powder) – ‘Liquid zeolite is considered to be the leading chelation treatment available…The zeolites minerals from which liquid zeolite supplements are made are found in the ground. They are formed as soon as volcanic lava, ash and ocean salted water meet. The chemical structure of a zeolite mineral looks exactly like a honeycomb and it’s negatively charged. After the mineral is harvested, it is cleansed, micronized and transformed into liquefied form. Once it’s in the body, the zeolite enters the bloodstream and starts traveling to all the internal organs. On its way, zeolite attracts all the positively charged ions (heavy metals, toxic compounds and poisons), keeps them inside its honeycomb and carries them out of the body with urine and sweat. All this in only 6 or 8 hours! The “magnet for toxins” zeolite doesn’t leave anything behind, except for the needed substances that nourish our bodies.
Other chelation treatments have their flaws. For instance, besides zeolite, all the other treatments eliminate also the substances that nourish our bodies such as calcium, magnesium or potassium. Zeolite doesn’t. Also, all the other detoxing treatments come with their side effects and you might feel worse than better through the entire process of detoxification. The only side effect noted when using zeolite would be a slight dehydration, but only in the first 2 days of consumption.’
Bentonite Clay – ‘Many autism treatment centers are incorporating the use of Bentonite clay in their successful treatment regimens. Detoxing and chelating with calcium Bentonite clay baths is proving to be a key factor in their success. Studies are showing the clay`s unique ability to safely remove metals and environmental toxins from the body clears the way for greater results with behavioral and integrative therapies.
Calcium Bentonite clay is a member of the Montmorillonite/Smectite family of clays. Also called Living Clay, it is one of the most sought after of the healing clays. It carries a uniquely strong negative ionic charge which causes it to `magnetically` attract any substance with a positive ionic charge (i.e., bacteria, toxins, metals, etc.). These substances are both adsorbed (sticking to the outside like Velcro) and absorbed (drawn inside) by the clay molecules. The toxins are then eliminated from the body as the clay is eliminated or removed.
Calcium Bentonite clay is used both internally and externally to detoxify the body. Clay cannot be digested, so when taken internally in liquefied form, the clay passes through your system collecting the toxins, and removing them as the clay is eliminated. If drinking the liquefied clay is not palatable to you, it can be added to food, juices, or smoothies. Used externally, clay baths have proven to be highly effective at removing toxins.’
Melatonin – ‘It is known that melatonin scavenges oxygen and nitrogen-based reactants generated in mitochondria. This limits the loss of the intramitochondrial glutathione and lowers mitochondrial protein damage.‘ León J, Acuña-Castroviejo D, Escames G, Tan DX, Reiter RJ., Department of Cellular and Structural Biology, University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio, TX
‘Because melatonin can cross the blood–brain barrier easily, there is much interest in the therapeutic use of this agent in oxidative brain injury. It has been shown previously in our laboratory that melatonin is able to bind to iron. In the present study the level of lipid peroxidation in the melatonin and Fe2+-treated rats was reduced by ± 50%. Thus, the injection of melatonin significantly inhibited lipid damage in the hippocampus induced by the neurotoxin.‘ Journal of Neurochemistry
‘A study conducted by Pal and Chatterjee suggested that melatonin supplementation in arsenic-treated rats reduces free radical-mediated cytotoxicity and thereby helps in the restoration of normal cellular antioxidant status. The antioxidant effect of melatonin has been claimed as a protective factor towards carcinogenesis, neurodegeneration and aging. A study by Kim et al suggested that immunotoxicity induced by lead was significantly restored or prevented by melatonin (MLT). Splenic T and B cells were significantly increased by MLT treatment when compared with the treatment of Pb alone. The natural killer cell, phagocytic activity and the number of peripheral leukocytes were significantly enhanced in Pb plus MLT-treated mice when compared with the treatment of Pb alone.
The antioxidative effect of melatonin has also been reported by its ability to protect haematopoietic cells from the damaging effects of exposure to lead. The protective effect of melatonin against lead-induced toxicity is attributed mainly to its lipophilic and hydrophilic nature as well as to localize mainly in a superficial position in the lipid bilayer near the polar heads of membrane phospholipids. Since membrane functions and structure are influenced by proteins in membranes, and lead is known to damage thiol proteins, it is possible that the protective action of melatonin to membrane damage induced by lead may be related partially to the ability of the indole group present in melatonin to prevent protein damage. It has also been reported that melatonin stimulates superoxide dismutase mRNA levels in several tissues.‘ Flora, S.J.S.; Mittal, Megha; Mehta, Ashish, Indian Journal of Medical Research
Note: Any product that replicates a naturally occurring substance in the body, such as Melatonin supplement, should be used sparingly, as it can undermine the effectiveness of the Thyroid Grand, by unleashing an over-abundance of free-radicals, triggering hyper/hypothyroidism. Just be prudent, and monitor your health effects on a day-to-day basis, or that of your child, while on these products. Holistic health requires constant attention to the delicate balance of myriad inter-dependent systems at work; otherwise you’ll often cause a chain reaction elsewhere, by overloading or over-stimulating one component of the body.
Kale & Cilantro (consume regularly) – ‘Kale has the nutrients that fight and prevent cancer and other disease…high in glucosinolates (anti-carcinogens), excellent known cell detoxifier, promotes lung health, protects against arthritis, slows loss of mental function‘…’Cilantro has been found to chelate (remove) heavy metals like mercury, aluminum, and lead from the body. In fact, it is believed to cross the blood-brain barrier and actually remove said metals from the brain.’
‘Lead, mercury (including aluminum) and cadmium steal sulfur from important proteins, which could be enzymes, hormones, or cell receptors. Conversely, sulfur is needed in the liver detox pathway to hook onto these metals and clear them from the body. So, lead, mercury and cadmium depletes sulfur, the very nutrient needed to detox the metal overload. A depletion of sulfur will also adversely affect joint connective tissue growth, since sulfur is an essential precursor to the building blocks of cartilage, namely glucosamine sulfate, chondroitin sulfate, and hyaluronic acid. Good sources are egg yolks, garlic, kelp, kale, turnip, raspberries, onions, cabbage, and mustard.’
“Pectin is a long-chain of sugars, of “galacturonic acid” that is present in the peel of citrus fruits, like oranges and grapefruit and lemons. And these pectins were able to reduce the radioactive readings by up to 50% (in children exposed to Chernobyl radiation fallout). If I can take regular pectin, modify it to a smaller size in the right structure so it can get absorbed into the bloodstream, it can serve as a gentle chelator of heavy metals on an an ongoing basis. Over the years we’ve conducted a number of studies that have shown, indeed, the effectiveness & safety of modified citrus pectin as a chelator of heavy metals. We’ve also shown that when we combine modified citrus pectin with modified alginates (which have a similar structure), they have a synergistic effect, both in the bloodstream, as well as in the gut, and therefore they can prevent the re-absorption of heavy metals; which can be excreted into the gut, but then get re-absorbed, and therefore we need a much lower dosage to have a chelating effect.” Dr. Isaac Eliaz MD. MS. LAc
Integrative Medicine and the Role of Modified Citrus Pectin/Alginates in Heavy Metal Chelation and Detoxification – Five Case Reports: ‘The five case studies presented here show that reduction in toxic heavy metals (74% average decrease) was achieved without side effects, with the use of PectaSol® modified citrus pectin (MCP) (EcoNugenics; Santa Rosa, CA, USA) alone or with an MCP/alginates combination. The gradual decrease of total body heavy metal burden is believed to have played an important role in each patient’s recovery and health maintenance.’
The effect of modified citrus pectin on urinary excretion of toxic elements: ‘It is suggested that systemic chelation of toxic metals by MCP may in part be attributable to the presence of rhamnogalacturonan II, which has been shown previously to chelate metals.’

The Vaccine Resistance Movement has always been a non-profit organization; therefore your financial support is integral to us reaching our many ambitious goals. If you appreciate the efforts to bring this information forward do consider making a donation. Any amount, no matter how modest, will help us raise the stakes to better counter an increasingly dictatorial pro-vaccine lobby & corrupt Gov’t bureaucracy bent on eliminating the link between vaccines & Autism. Your support will help us expand our horizons, enabling us to reach a much broader community around the world, with many projects currently on the go (aside from helping us cover the basic costs involved in maintaining day-to-day operations, rally costs, speaking engagements etc); while making it possible for us to bring our VRM Worldwide Autism Study to the world stage.Please see Paypal link on the VRM website. thx.
