Vaccines: What's the Big Deal?

I know right off the bat this is a touchy subject. I also know the facts are not being told about vaccines in the doctors offices. My heart for the following article is that you would not even take my word for it, but that you would read, compare studies, and decide with empirical evidence before putting another vaccination into your body or a family member's body. I was vaccinated as a child, and I also vaccinated my children. I will be honest and tell you as a concerned mother as well as certified holistic health practitioner that if I knew way back when what I know now, that I would not repeat the vaccinations. Therefore, whatever decision to which you arrive, I pray that you will do so being educated.  

I am disturbed by the fact that schools are actually given money for pushing vaccines and the same are for medical practices. Whatever happened to parents and families being in charge of what happens or goes into a child's body? Not pharmaceutical companies with monetary investments, not doctors, and nor school systems alike have that right. Did you know the very studies and findings that the pharmaceutical industry uses to support efficacy of the vaccinations is done by the pharmaceutical companies? Does that seem right to you?  

I'd like to share just some of the contents of many vaccines, including the flu shots. I am not a medical doctor, I am however able to read, and I know for certain that I do not want these items in my body, nor the bodies of my sons. Below I will show which vaccines contain certain ingredients. I am not here to tell you whether to vaccinate or not. I will expose to you what's in the vaccines, and then you can go from there. Keep in mind I'm only covering a few of the unfavorable ingredients.


Did you know that in the influenza vaccinations that there is formaldehyde? There is no reasonable amount of this ingredient considered safe, yet it is injected into our blood streams and our infants' blood streams! According to the National Cancer Institute formaldehyde is a colorless, flammable, strong smelling chemical that is used in building materials and used in many household products. Here you can read how it is classified as a known carcinogen (that means cancer causing agent).


There are extremely high levels of mercury in vaccines way beyond what are considered safe levels. This is a proven toxin to the body. Mercury through studies here according to the EPA have show to grow tumors in mice and rats. Depending on the type of mercury is contingent on the outcome on the type of damage. 

*Mercury is also a toxin to be aware of with dental care, read here if you or anyone else you know has fillings.


Polysorbate-80 is also in highly concentrated amounts with absolutely no safe levels established. This is a surfactant or emulsifier used in personal care items and cleaners. According to studies concluded here by the National Center for Biotechnological Information (NCBI) polysorbate-80 can suppress the immune system. this is not just in vaccines. It can also be found in vitamins and supplements.Learn more about polysorbate-80 here. Dr. Joe Mercola expands on true immunity that is natural here versus herd immunity from vaccines.

 Human DNA

The following vaccines all contain either human protein or DNA: MMR (M-M-R 2), Chicken Pox (Varivax), Chicken Pox and MMR (Proquad), Hepatitis A (Havrix), Hepatitis A (Vaqta), DTaP Hib Polio (Pentacel), Rabies (IMOVAX), and Rabies (RabAvert).

You can read here from the NNii (National Network for Immunization
Information) about how vaccines are grown in human diploid cell from aborted babies.


According to the NYU Langone Medical Center,  "Aluminum is a heavy metal plentiful in the earth's crust. Aluminum toxicity occurs when breathes or ingests high levels of aluminum into the body. Exposure to high levels can cause serious problems in the body." There is a direct link now between aluminum and brain related disorders. Read here what Dr. Joe Mercola says about the dangers of this heavy metal.

Ways to Avoid Aluminum In Everyday Living

  1. Stop using body care products with aluminum like deodorants. There are several natural deodorants available on the market that work well. You can also easily make your own. I make and sell a wonderful safe, natural, effective deodorant in a paste and stick. To place an order go here.
  2. Remove aluminum cookware from your home. Replace it with stainless steel and cast iron.
  3. Get a good water filtration unit in your home. If you can't do a  whole home unit, get separate units, especially for your shower. I purchased mine here (this is not an affiliate link). In addition to aluminum there of thousands of gallons of waste and chemicals tossed into our waters everyday. When we shower its even more dangerous than drinking the water. This is because our pores open in the warmth of the steam and water so the toxins go directly into them.
  4. Use aluminum free baking powder. You can buy it or easily make your own.
  5. Use glass or stainless steel water bottles.

  What You Can Do to Learn More

 If you visit The National Vaccine Information Center here you can actually create your own vaccination plan. This allows you to choose the vaccinations, then the chart tells you levels of particular ingredients in the vaccines.This plan is extremely helpful, so even if after reading this information, you choose to vaccinate, you will be better informed to choose only the vaccinations that you deem necessary.

 Health Tips to Build Natural Immunity

For those of you that choose not to vaccinate, and even if you choose to do so, here are some things you can do to build up natural immunity.

1) Wash your hands regularly and do it with regular soap. Avoid anti-bacterial soaps that are too strong and strip our bodies of healthy bacteria.

2) Eat a wide variety of plant based foods in different colors that are organic to avoid toxic herbicides, fungicides, and pesticides. Read here how pesticides and the like can travel to the unborn baby from the mother through the umbilical cord and what you can do to avoid them like eating organic foods. Plant foods, especially dark leafy greens, are extremely important to consume in large quantities for adequate magnesium and chlorophyll.Green smoothies really help here.

3) Everyday drink about 1 Tbsp of Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar in 8-10 ounces of water.

4) Eat a tsp of raw, local, organic honey (unless you are diabetic).

5) Exercise with a high intensity workout.

6) Get plenty of sleep.

7) Drink lots of clean water and add a little Himalayan Sea Salt for minerals.

8) Avoid eating wheat.

9) Eat plenty of healthy fats like organic unrefined coconut oil, real butter from raw grass fed dairy, avocados, raw soaked nuts, and extra virgin olive oil.

10) Store as much food/liquid in glass or stainless steel as possible. Avoid neuro-toxins in plastic like BPA and phthlates.Don't do plastic water bottles EVEN if they say BPA free. BPA is not the only toxin in plastic.

11) Use therapeutic grade essential oils to make home remedies, toiletries, body care, and cleaning products instead of chemically laden dangerous cleaners/solvents.

12) Avoid factory farmed fish and meats. Eat wild fish instead that are not bottom feeders and grass fed, organic pastured meats and poultry.

13) Take time to go outside and get fresh air each day. Walk and touch the earth with your bare feet when possible.

14) Learn as much as you can about herbal and homeopathic remedies so when an illness does come come up you can treat it safely and naturally.

15) If you have access to it, eat/drink raw dairy. Read here about the benefits for immune health by consuming raw dairy. Specifically vitamin K2 is highly available in goat milk. Vitamin K2 is necessary for absorbing vitamin D, calcium and magnesium.

16) Take a high quality fermented cod liver plus butter oils supplement for proper amounts of vitamin A and D. Try this one. (This is not an affiliate link.) If the cod liver oil is not fermented and combined with the butter oil it will not be as beneficial. Vitamin D is extremely important for a healthy immune system.

17) Eat/drink plenty of fermented foods and beverages to encourage healthy bacteria in the body

18) Put down electronic devices whenever possible. Wireless signals do a lot of wear and tear on the immune system. Essential oils can really help dispel this problem.Read more here about EMFs and how to be safe.

19) Do not use a microwave. They destroy our food's nutrition and alter the food's chemical state. Read more here.

20) Speak life, smile, and be positive. Proverbs 17:22 says, " A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person's strength."
