Doctors denying Vaccine Risks An American Tragedy, April 25, 2011

Doctors denying Vaccine Risks An American Tragedy, April 25, 2011, Barbara Loe Fisher, National Vaccine Information Center, NVIC.

Anyone with young children in their lives should watch this video. This happened to my oldest daughter. She was on her third shot of DPT and thanks to the work of this woman, Barbara Loe Fisher, I was aware that there were problems with vaccines. I have no doubt that knowledge saved my daughter’s life.

Big Study: Vaccinated Kids 2-5 More Diseases Than Unvaccinated

Preventable Vaccine-induced Diseases

vaccinationsA German study released in September 2011 of about 8000 UNVACCINATED children, newborn to 19 years, show vaccinated children have at least 2 to 5 times more diseases and disorders than unvaccinated children.

The results are presented in the bar chart below; the complete data and study results are here. The data is compared to the national German KIGGS health study of the children in the general population. Most of the respondents to the survey were from the U.S. (Click on the chart to see it better)

The data was collected from parents with vaccine-free children via an internet questionnaire by vaccineinjury.info and Andreas Bachmair, a German classical homeopathic practitioner. The independent study is self-funded and is not sponsored by a large “credible” non-profit or government health organization with political and financial conflicts of interest; hence Bachmair relies on Google ads and donations for revenue. Each one of the 8000 cases are actual cases with medical documentation. Three other studies had similar results according to Bachmair and are reported below.

No study of health outcomes of vaccinated people versus unvaccinated has ever been conducted in the U.S. by CDC or any other agency in the 50 years or more of an accelerating schedule of vaccinations (now over 50 doses of 14 vaccines given before kindergarten, 26 doses in the first year). Most data collected by CDC is contained in the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database. The VAERS is generally thought to contain only 3 to 5 percent of reportable incidents. This is simply because only some immediate reactions are reported by doctors; but many are not admitted to be reactions to the vaccine. Most importantly, the VAERS numbers are only immediate reactions, which I would place with a few hours to a few weeks. Long-term vaccine-induced diseases and disorders are not recognized by parents or doctors when these conditions develop perhaps a few months to five years or more and would never be realized to come from multiple vaccinations. In other words, many children and adults have diseases and disorders that are vaccine induced and they never suspect they are from the vaccines, as this study indicates.

The comparisons of the health of vaccine-free children with the health statistics of the general population are the same as comparing unvaccinated with vaccinated. This is simply because the general population of U.S. children are nearly 100 percent vaccinated.

Only four of the unvaccinated 8000 responded with severeautism (0.05%) and these were said to be high mercury cases. On the other hand, I had noticed the results show about a 1% rate for autism in the unvaccinated over 3 years old–about the same as vaccinated children. So I asked Bachmair why the data does not show significantly less. He told me he had invited many autism groups and internet autism lists to participate and thus skewed the results accordingly. If the true rate is 0.5%, I calculated that only 40 extra respondents (above the true average number) responded yes to autism, it would skew the results by a factor of 2. If the true rate is 0.25%, only 60 additional respondents (above the true average number) of the 8000 responded yes to autism, it would skew the results by a factor of 4. So it would not take many respondents from these lists to skew the results significantly.

The only other bias in this study may include the fact that parents of unvaccinated children are obviously concerned about the health risks of vaccines, and are more likely to make other healthier choices such as feeding their children a much better diet and using more natural remedies and using fewer pharmaceuticals.

Now half the U.S. children suffer from chronic diseases and disorders and 21% are developmentally disabled. Yet the public health system always uses the sacred mantra “vaccine-preventable diseases” when referring to their top public health achievement of mass vaccinations. I think we should be talking more in terms of preventable vaccine-induced diseases.

The survey is still ongoing and you may take the survey here if you have unvaccinated children.

Salzburger Study

Results: of 1004 unvaccinated children, had

Asthma, 0% (8-12% in the normal population)

A-topic dermatitis 1.2% (10-20% in the normal population)

Allergies 3% (25% in the normal population)

ADHD 0.79% (5-10%) in children

Longterm Study in Guinea-Bissau (1 Kristensen I, Aaby P, Jensen H.:“Routine vaccinations and child survival: follow up study in Guinea-Bissau, West Africa”, BMJ 2000; 321: 1435–41)

The children of 15,000 mothers were observed from 1990 to 1996 for 5 years.

Result: the death rate in vaccinated children against diphtheria, tetanus and whooping cough is twice as high as the unvaccinated children (10.5% versus 4.7%).

Back to school checkup: learning disorders and chiropractic

Learning disorders are just one of many neurological problems that affect children today. They also include hyperactivity, attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and minimal brain damage among others.

The number of children diagnosed with these conditions is growing at a staggering rate, as medical historian Harris Coulter, PhD, has noted.

These disorders have received the appellation developmental disabilities. Probably the leading one is dyslexia, also called minimal brain damage. Another prominent one is autism. But there are many others. Approximately twenty percent of American children — one youngster in five — suffers from a developmental disability.

The Minnesota Chiropractic Association (MCA) is encouraging parents to include a regularly scheduled chiropractic checkup in their child’s health regime. Children under chiropractic care will experience optimal development of the nervous system, as interference with growth and development will be eliminated.

Just as with adults, a child’s brain and spinal cord is the power source for the entire body. However, during childhood connections are still being formed. When the connections are being developed we want them to be assembled perfectly. This will allow the body to function properly from the very beginning.

Although not a treatment for neurological disorders, chiropractic has given many children suffering from neurological disorders new hope. Chiropractors, parents, and school officials have reported on the effectiveness of chiropractic for children with many kinds of neurological conditions including learning disorders, hyperactivity, inability to concentrate and behavior problems.

Be sure to mark your calendar for Sept. 30, 2011 when nationally known, Dr. Robert Rakowski will address “How to Control Learning Disorders with a Wellness Approach to Health (Position Your Child to Succeed).” This event will take place at the Southtown Conference Room at 8120 Penn Ave. South, Bloomington, Minn. from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The cost for this event is $15 per person or $25 for two people. For more information call 800-864-3769 or 952-882-9411.

Case study on ADHD

Chiropractic has been shown to help benefit children that suffer from learning disabilities such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADHD. This disorder affects approximately 5 million children between ages of 4 and 17, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Boys are three times more likely to be affected by ADHD than girls.

Chiropractic offers an alternative to help manage ADHD. Studies have shown that chiropractic treatment that assesses motor dysfunction reduces symptoms and enhances cognitive performance.

Chiropractic has helped Leah, a 6-year-old girl who presented to the clinic with symptoms of more aggressive behavior, a hard time concentrating or completing a task and could not sit still. Her mother noted that her symptoms started around age 3 and had progressed every year since.

The mother was informed by her teacher that she was very disruptive in school and was falling behind in school work because she could not follow instruction. She did a lot of fidgeting with her hands and feet and was easily distracted. She had classic symptoms of ADHD and when tested was diagnosed with ADHD.

When doctors of chiropractic evaluate a child with ADHD, they look at the whole child. Evaluation of past and present health revealed that Leah had a history of ear infections and sinus issues. She was not good at eating breakfast and her diet was the typical American diet of less than nutritious food.

On evaluation of the spine, she had uneven shoulder and hip heights. She had abnormal motion to different levels of her neck, mid, lower back and pelvis. This abnormal motion causes the nervous system to malfunction. In chiropractic care, this lack of communication of the nervous system is called a subluxation.

When Leah started her chiropractic care, her mother reported changes within two weeks. These changes happened when normal motion was restored to her spine by gentle chiropractic adjustments. As chiropractic treatment continued, her mother had made diet changes that included less refined sugar, no dyes and she increased her fruits and veggies as prescribed by the chiropractor.

After four weeks, her mother started to report that she was able to participate in small groups in school without being disruptive. She started to read sitting by herself without someone there to keep her on task. Her teacher reported after three months that she was no longer a “challenging child.” Her mother also reported that her ability to establish friendships and interact with other children had returned to normal and no longer was there any aggressive behavior.

Leah went through two visits per week for four weeks and then one visit per week for another four weeks. Her mother one year later seeks chiropractic care for Leah on a once every three month basis as she feels Leah’s concentration starts to diminish. Her mother feels these visits “tune her up” and put her back to optimal levels of mental function.

Chiropractic for Kids: A Safe and Effective Drugless Health Care Solution

A new study details the safety and effectiveness of pediatric chiropractic. A new study reveals high overall satisfaction and near-nonexistent complications and adverse events in children receiving chiropractic care. Phase one of a project undertaken by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) as part of its practice-based research network (PBRN),  the study assessed pediatric chiropractic by surveying chiropractors and parents of pediatric patients (18 years of age and younger).

Survey of chiropractors: Data was derived from 577 pediatric clinical cases, with patients ranging in age from less than 1 day to 18 years (average age: 7.45 years). All patients received chiropractic adjustments at each visit (5,438 total office visits).

According to the study, “wellness care” was the primary reason indicated for care [46 percent of patients, 25 percent of whom reported a specific complaint during their presentation (e.g., colic)]. For condition-based presentations, musculoskeletal conditions were the most common presentations seen (26 percent of patients), and diversified, Gonstead, Thompson and Activator with the most common techniques utilized. Other reasons for care included digestion/elimination problems (7 percent), ear, nose and throat problems (6 percent), neurological problems (6 percent), immune dysfunction (5 percent) and other (4 percent).

In terms of safety, no treatment-associated complications were indicated by chiropractic or parent responders, and chiropractors indicated only three adverse events in 5,438 office visits involving treatment of 577 children: “muscle stiffness,” “spine soreness” and “stiff and sore.” The treating chiropractor’s response to such treatment-related aggravations was to re-examine the child and apply a different technique, modification of the technique originally used, or modification of the spinal segment to which the adjustment was applied.

Survey of parents/guardians:
Data was derived from 239 children representing a similar number of children (average age: 6.16 years) who made 1,735 total visits to chiropractic offices. In this survey, 47 percent of parents/guardians reported bringing their children in for “wellness care” and musculoskeletal complaints were again the most common condition-based presentation.

Parents indicated two minor adverse events following chiropractic care out of 1,735 total visits: soreness of the child’s knee following care to address a knee complaint, and cervical spine stiffness following spinal manipulative therapy or SMT, (the technical term for chiropractic adjustment), to address the child’s cervical spine dysfunction.

With regard to effectiveness, both chiropractors and parents indicated high rates of improvement following chiropractic care for the children’s presenting complaints, as well as “salutary effects unrelated to the children’s initial clinical presentation.” The most common treatment-associated improvements noted were decreased pain, improved mood and increased immune function. Improvements unrelated to the patients’ initial presentation included immune-system improvements, improved sleep and improved emotional state/mood.

In their conclusion, the authors note: “To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study of its kind addressing the safety and effectiveness of pediatric chiropractic SMT in a practice-based research setting. The results of both our practitioner and patient surveys demonstrate a highly perceived effectiveness for pediatric chiropractic care as well as a high level of safety. We advocate continued research in this area with larger prospective cohorts incorporating the co-variates of safety and effectiveness of pediatric SMT.”
