My Family’s Experience with Inoculations

It was a startling and raw journey, with much vacillation on my part.

My 2nd child had his first MMR dose at 18 months old, and this was a few years ago. Back then, he exhibited symptoms of measles or rubella. The incubation period matched that of either disease. He had the rash, conjunctivitis, along with respiratory symptoms and fever. Everything fit the description of measles or rubella. We consulted 2 paediatricians and both were hesitant to conclude its link to the MMR vaccine. I was disappointed because I intuitively knew it was vaccine-induced. With much twist of an arm (figuratively speaking), I managed to convince 1 of the paediatrician to write a memo indicating that my child’s infection was ‘vaccine-induced measles’.

It was our first encounter with the huge hesitancy from medical professionals in concluding that diseases can be vaccine-induced. This was 5-6 years ago. I observe the same hesitancy today. But this experience has prepared us in advance for a time like today.

In 2021, I brought my child for a measles antibody test to check if he had measles in 2016. His antibody test was a positive! To parents – trust your intuition. The doctor who administered the test was shocked to hear that the measles infection was from his 1st MMR dose.

Roll back to 2007 and 2009, I took a tetanus jab in 1 year, and the influenza jab in another year. In those years, I battled a bad bout of chronic hives (urticaria) which would not go away for 1 + 1 years, except if I took anti-histamines to suppress them. It was a debilitating and discouraging period of my life. Doctors and specialists could not tell me what’s wrong, and none asked if I had taken any vaccines in their medical assessments. Hence, I myself did not link the hives to the inoculations. I eventually recovered by throwing away the anti-histamines, and sincerely seeking Jesus for His healing and restoration. Jesus healed and restored my health in 1.5 months, after two 1-year period of chronic hives.

I am not surprised at present to hear people reporting rashes, eczema, hives, and other side effects relating to the inoculations that are being pushed upon people. If we were to read the vaccine package inserts for the childhood vaccines, you may see similar adverse reactions listed in it, including myocarditis.

I have not yet come to a conclusion whether one should get inoculated or not against severe diseases, but it is time to wake up to the truth that there is a possible link between vaccines and adverse reactions to our immune system.

If one has to get inoculated for a good reason, these are the nutritional supplements I would take to detox from an inactivated virus vaccine.

To detox from aluminium hydroxide found in these vaccines, the silica mineral in Fiji water does that.

NAC or glutathione to cleanse your liver from the toxins.

Coconut water and/or DHA (found in Omega 3) to counter the acidity and inflammation in the body caused by vaccines. DHA is anti-inflammatory. Cod liver oil has a higher component of DHA than EPA.

Vit D3/K2 for overall immunity. K2 helps with the absorption of D3.

Do seek a naturopath doctor or alternative health practitioner for your own health advice. Some general practitioners may have this knowledge too, but it may be challenging to find one who does.

Be Blessed!

Turning Point with Natural Immunity

As a mom, I am compelled to share this article (see link below). I have heard names of these amazing doctors being mentioned. They are at the frontline, helping their patients with recovery, and battling against biased and ineffective public health policies. God watches and He will honour the work they do.

https://trialsitenews.com/dont-vaccinate-kids-urgent-message-from-doctors-summit/

A healthy child has the ability to overcome viruses with natural immunity. My kids are on a nutritional protocol of zinc, fish oil, vit D3, vit C. Add quercetin in as a zinc ionophore if you wish.

I consider gut health and outdoor time for my kids as well. My family does not take much dairy as it’s inflammatory. When I reduced our dairy intake as a family, we rarely had to deal with respiratory symptoms. Get out into nature, under the sun, onto the grass, soil, sand etc. The healing properties of mother nature helps us build immunity.

We got our food intolerance tests done, as abstaining from these foods helped to lower the inflammation in our bodies, and achieve optimal health. If there is a bio-resonance therapist in your area, it is a good one to sieve out allergies and target parts of our bodies which are not functioning well. My son’s eczema was cleared with the support of bio-resonance and naturopath.

Think positive, stay healthy, be hopeful. I hope you find nuggets of info which are beneficial for your kids’ health.

Health Choices. Who has the say?

My body belongs to me. My body is a temple of God. It belongs to God my Creator. I seek God for my health choices. It doesn’t belong to the state. It doesn’t belong to the schools. It doesn’t belong to medical practitioners. I have a choice over my health matters. I know my body the best. I have survival instincts to make the best decision for myself and my children. I have the right to keep myself and my children safe. No one should be pressuring me into doing something against my will about my health or my children’s health. Period.

A little laughter and fun!

Amidst the negative vibes which have shrouded the world, let’s remember to have some fun within the family. Pick out moments to have light-hearted conversations with the kids.

Sharing a short exchange with my 7 year old…

J: I am having ulcers from the french toast. I am allergic to it.

Me: Oh, is that right? Let me check your mouth. (I saw nothing. I knew he was making up an excuse as he did not want to finish his french toast. Thus, I played along with him.)

Me: Son, I bought you a sausage bun last night and it’s in the fridge. Hmm, looks like you won’t be able to have it today because of your ulcers and allergies.

J: (his eyes lit up because sausage buns are his favourite) Let me see it! I think I can eat it.

Me: Are you sure? Aren’t you allergic to bread?

J: I’m allergic to toasted bread, not normal bread!

What do we believe about the healthcare system?

Recently read this in a social work textbook – Physicians undermined the credibility of midwives by creating a perception that their practices were “unscientific”. It took nearly a century for midwives to begin to recapture their reputation and their influence over childbirth practices (Schoen 2000 cited in Rogers 2019). The resulting increase in use of midwives, home birth, and birth centers as an alternative to maternity wards within hospitals helps to restore women’s control over the birth process and to decrease the medicalization of birth (Parry 2008; Phelan & O’Connell, 2015 cited in Rogers 2019).

Similarly, since the 1960s and 1970s, women (and physicians) have rediscovered the benefits of breastfeeding. A generation earlier, the experts had recommended scientifically engineered formula over breast milk (Rogers 2019).

The test of time will surface misinformation that the media and healthcare system feeds us, won’t it? What are we learning from our history or are we repeating history? What have we chosen to believe in? Do we believe in them because it is what we are familiar with? What if we believed wrong?

I grew up in an era when most babies were fed formula milk due to the mainstream message that formula milk was superior to breast milk. The obvious difference I have noticed between my generation and my parents’ generation was that my generation saw more incidences of eczema (which is essentially an autoimmune disease).

I also grew up in a time when antibiotics were prescribed freely by doctors. Until scientific evidence showed up to say that too much antibiotics can cause bacterial resistance or antibiotic resistance and generate unwanted side effects.

(Read up on antibiotics here: https://www.healthline.com/health-news/five-unintended-consequences-antibiotic-overuse-031114)

Today, 30-40 years down the road, this message is still ingrained in the psyche of parents. Formula milk is preferred over breast milk for its convenience because society and culture has not made it easy for mothers to breastfeed in public or at work. I speculate too, that it’s chosen over breast milk due to the lack of knowledge about the wonderful attributes of breast milk, coupled with the residual misinformation that formula milk’s benefits surpass that of breast milk.

What have we done to breastfeeding? Will there come a day when no mothers will be breastfeeding because it’s seen as cumbersome and unpopular? If I am God, I will look upon my creation with sadness and grief, seeing how people destroy themselves, unknowingly and knowingly.

Misinformation can cause a generation of children to have a decline in health outcomes. Thus, it is of utmost importance for us to inquire and inform ourselves, especially in a heavily medicalised society. Get into conversations with doctors during consultations, ask them the hard questions, and don’t take mainstream healthcare narratives and product marketing at face value.

When I have to make tough decisions regarding family health issues, I would fall back on what is natural, given by God, and stick with that belief as my foundation. It has not proven me and my family wrong thus far. A question I often ponder upon is “Why have we chosen to put more trust in pharmaceuticals (synthetic drugs) instead of what is natural and good?”

What has happened to our belief in healthcare over the last century? Who is wiping out pertinent information about nutritional knowledge, natural systems which has kept humans alive for thousands of years, and natural remedies which help the body self-heal?

No-knead bread – will fermentation help with wheat intolerance?

Fermented for 12-18 hours before sticking it into the oven

Experimenting with fermented bread, to see if my son reacts to the wheat in it. I read that fermentation breaks down the gluten further, making it easier for digestion. We shall observe for the next few days…

Made with 4 ingredients: flour, yeast, salt and water.

Update: appears that son and I react to a protein in wheat. Not gluten. Would try the same recipe using spelt flour.

a wealth of knowledge to learn about food nutrition! Excellent knowledge to be recorded and passed down to our next generations.

Diet and Eczema

Positive results after avoiding corn, wheat, dairy and eggs

Being parents to Z has taught us so much about our immune systems, about nutrition, reading ingredients labels, steering away from medicinal drugs and vaccines.

We have unlearned and re-learned so much in this journey to help Z recover from eczema. I am still quite mind-blown at how much we had to “detox and unlearn” from the western medicine practice which was what we grew up with. For us to then transit into the fields of naturopathy, diet and nutrition, chiropractic/craniosacral therapy, bioresonance therapy was a leap of faith, and a radical venture into the unknown. Yet it has been the most rewarding because the results it produced were phenomenal.

Besides looking into diet and nutrition and receiving treatment from natural modes of therapy, skin products also play a part. Those which have been certified by dermatologists or prescribed by skin specialists might not be the best for eczema. I would avoid products with mineral oil (paraffin liquidum) and choose products with natural ingredients as much as possible. Mineral oil, when used over a long time, will cause layers of skin to be formed at the eczema spots, and it causes inflammation as the layers block the toxins from leaving the body through the skin. This happened to Z. When he stopped using the bath oil with mineral oil, his chest area began to clear up. Of course, avoiding the food allergens was a major causal factor too.

There is no one factor contributing to eczema. It cannot be treated as a skin disorder on its own. Our bodies are holistic, made up of many systems. 1 system affects another and another, hence it is important to find a practitioner who assesses and treats the body holistically for it to arrive at homeostasis.

Pregnancy and the Pelvis

I was reminded by my husband to pen down my experiences to help others make sense of similar experiences.

When I was pregnant with my 3rd child, I came down with pelvic pain in my 2nd trimester. The pain persisted till post delivery. I am 5 months post partum now and I am still undergoing rehabilitation.

Cause of pelvic pain: a rotated and tilted pelvis, which caused inflammation in my left Sacroiliac joint (SIJ).

Symptoms: I couldn’t walk normally. I could only limp very slowly. I felt pain getting up from a lying down position, felt pain from sitting, getting in and out of the car, toileting. I couldn’t lie on my left side. I couldn’t bend over to wear socks or pants while standing up. My movements were pretty much restricted. Lying flat on my back was the most comfortable position.

What helped during pregnancy: Physiotherapy helped me sit better and it was the daily pelvic exercises and deep breathing exercises which got me through till childbirth. However, physiotherapy did not resolve my walking problem.

What helped after pregnancy: Chiropractic adjusted my pelvis back to its neutral position. I only found out that my pelvis was rotated and tilted from my chiropractor. He advised me to ice the SIJs as frequently as I can to reduce the inflammation. It took about 5 sessions before I could walk better. I am now 5 months post partum and I’m walking normally. Sitting for a stretch of 30 mins still puts pressure on my SiJs and I would need to walk to relieve some discomfort. Swimming, SIJ strengthening exercises, stretches, physiotherapy exercises are great in complementing the chiropractic treatment.

I wish no other mums would go through the pains I had. My advice would be to seek chiropractic treatment when you feel any discomfort in your pelvis or lower back during the pregnancy. I had no knowledge about chiropractic during my pregnancy. Had I known, I would have gone for it, after experiencing how effective it is on hindsight.

Heal Your Gut, Heal Your Skin

It felt like a year of progress for my son, Z’s eczema condition. Last December 2018, Z had another eczema outbreak after a bout of HFMD. In Jan/Feb 2019, we consulted a naturopath doctor who used blood testing to determine her patients’ food intolerances. It was a major revelation for us to find out that Z was intolerant to potatoes, and a combination of dairy and grain. The test also revealed he was lacking in potassium. We started him on an elimination diet, eliminating potato, dairy, gluten and egg. He was prescribed glutagenics, digestive tonic, potassium cell salts, and non-dairy probiotics to kickstart his gut-healing process.

[Why the gut? The gut is responsible for the digestion of food, absorption of nutrients and excretion of waste. In the case of a food intolerance, the gut is unable to digest it, or works very hard to digest it, thus wearing out the gut lining. When the gut lining wears out, toxins then starts to leak out from the gut and into the system, leading to a compromised immune system. People may experience gastro-intestinale disorders, skin symptoms, neurological symptoms, respiratory disease, metabolic/endocrine/hormonal disorders, muscular-skeletal disorders, and reduced immunity.]

The doctor pointed out that Z’s dark eye rings are a sign of yeast infection and food intolerance, and she prescribed him a garlic supplement (in liquid form) to clear the yeast infection.

[What causes yeast infection? Possible causes are the use of antibiotics and vaccinations.]

After 3 months or so, we saw considerable improvements in Z’s skin. Most of the eczema on his neck and limbs cleared up, except for a stubborn patch on his left arm.

Being on a potato-free diet is challenging, because many commercial products like bread, pre-made paste, pre-made sauces, cereals, biscuits, cookies, all contain some derivative of potato or potato starch. For eg. baking powder, iodized salt, synthetic B vitamins (found in fortified cereals, bread, milk etc.). On hindsight, although not being able to consume these foods seemed like a decrease in his quality of life, but in fact, he’s consuming higher quality fresh food which is a lot healthier for his body. He has not fallen sick from the time we started treating his gut!

Heal your gut, heal your skin. Treat your gut, gain your immunity.
