EDUCATE Before We Vaccinate

We, as human beings, deserve to be informed before making any decision, which involves our body.

Before we decide to inject the flu shot or any other vaccine into our body, let's take the time to review the manufacturer’s package insert.  They can be found on this website:

In many cases, vaccinations are contraindicated (which means they should not be administered) because of compromised immune function, allergies to eggs and latex, aspirin, cancer, pregnancy, eczema, asthma, allergies.  Read through the inserts to understand this information.

In addition, vaccinations contain synthetic and toxic ingredients, e.g., formaldehyde, polysorbate 80, thimerosal, gentamicin, etc., which have no connection to supporting the Immune System.

Other Considerations:
  • We, as human beings, do not have the ability to create antibodies till 2 - 3 years of age
  • There are Medical practitioners that exist who do honor the human body and who do respect and support human beings and the personal choices they make for themselves.  
  • We have an Immune System, capable of healing the body from virus and bacterial infections.  
Natural Immune Support
  • Rest
  • Yoga
  • Garlic
  • Echinacea
  • Probiotics
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin D
  • Elderberry
  • Meditation
  • Herbal teas
  • Chiropractic 
  • Acupuncture 
  • Essential Oils
  • Organic fruits, vegetables and berries

Natural Remedies for Eczema

Depending on where you live, this time of year can really agitate Eczema. Eczema is an allergic condition that can be aggravated by diet, household cleaners, soaps, laundry detergents and perfumes.

When prescription creams fail, here are some Natural Remedies that work...

  • Avoid using commercial Gels, Soaps, Shampoos and Conditioners: popular brands of personal care products contain dyes, synthetic fragrances and chemicals that cause allergies and dry, irritated skin. Click HERE to learn more.
  • Essential Oils: Blend 3 drops of Lavender or Roman Chamomile with 2 drops of Peppermint into 1 oz of jojoba or unscented, all-natural lotion. Lavender and Roman Chamomile help to reduce inflammation and heal the skin while Peppermint relieves itch.
  • Baking Soda Baths: follow directions on package
  • Humidify: running a humidifier may help to counterbalance dryness from furnace heat
  • Shower head filter: replace current shower filter with one that filters out chlorine and other irritants
  • Jojoba: this is a great natural moisturizer! Jojoba is baby friendly and most like our own skin's oil (sebum) but it's not oily! Massage well on location before bedtime or after a shower. Click HERE to learn more.
  • Dr. Bronner's Baby Mild Castile Soap: a gentle, natural, biodegradable replacement to bar soap, bath gels and laundry detergent. Click HERE to learn more.
  • Read: understand the health implications of vaccines by reading the package inserts. Surprise!: Eczema is listed as a side effect on most inserts.
  • Satin Facial Scrub Mint (a product from Young Living): this product exfoliates and soothes skin magically! Massage well into patches; then shower or rinse. Click HERE to order.
  • Dry Brushing: learn all about it at
  • Supplementation: Ask your local Naturopathic Doctor or Chiropractor about Vitamin D, Cod Liver Oil and Omega 3 supplements to support skin health.

Cancer, Parkinson's, ADHD, Allergies, Asthma, Contact Dermatitis, Migraines, Depression, Reduced Fertility, Birth Defects, Headaches, Respiratory disorders, Dizziness, Lymphoma, Leukemia, Tumors, Pollution, etc.

These synthetic chemicals are toxic to children, pets, our water supply, our ecosystem.

* Ajax
* Tilex
* Lysol
* Glade
* Bleach
* Comet
