H1N1 Vaccinations?

This blog post is dedicated to my favorite chiro guy on the planet: The eminent Dr. G. H. Hanssen in Grand Island, Nebraska. He is a Healer, a Teacher and a Leader and has the best sense of humor of any health practitioner I have ever encountered.

The media hype is frenzied. Every electronic and print journalist is reporting about how important it would be to get in line, roll up your sleeve and take your medicine. All in the name of the H1N1 Flu "Pandemic."

Do you realize how insane that is? Perhaps not, so I shall share with you the opinions of someone from the Chiropractic field.

I'm fond of chiropractic. Before I learned to be a massage therapist our family depended on chiropractic before calling the family doctor. I hasten to explain that a chiropractor helped my father regain his ability to walk, following a "spell" with his lower back. Doc Johnson's phone always rang before we thought of calling Dr. Clark, M.D. When Dr. John Cortner, a legendary chiropractic healer and teacher in Manhattan Kansas got wind of my interest in massage therapy he invited me to work in his clinic to learn all he could teach me. It was a blessing for me and those I could help as a result.

Dr. Donald E Harte is a member of the World Chiropractic Alliance Board of International Governors. He has written with humor and heart about the problem of vaccinations. He writes about the manufactured frenzy over the H1N1 flu, and whether or not vaccinations are in order. He and I agree: THEY ARE NOT.

Dr. Harte mentions the incidences in the 1970s of Gulliam-Barre Syndrome and other diseases and 23 deaths attributed to these injections. He also mentions that the doctors interviewed for the study agreed that they would NOT administer the injections to their own family members. Telling, isn't it?

A former chief vaccine officer of the FDA, J Anthony Morris said, "There is no evidence that any influenza vaccine thus far developed is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza. The producers of these vaccines know they are worthless, but they go on selling them anyway."

SO! It is the immune system that protects us from the flu-and any other infectious disease-and it is the immune system which makes every effort to help us regain our well being. The immune system is coordinated and controlled by the nervous system. AHA! That's where chiropractic care comes into the picture.

Chiropractic care makes for better operating and more efficiently run nervous systems and all the studies support scientific data showing this to be the case.

Our own family was greatly affected by the Flu Pandemic of 1918. Just a few miles from our house an entire family of relatives died because of the dreaded disease. History suggests it is estimated that family was one of the 25 to 40 million people who died then because of the flu. History also tells us that people who were under chiropractic care at that time were far less susceptible to the ravages of the illness.

In just one example: In 1918 in Davenport, Iowa 93,590 patients were treated. There were only 6,116 deaths-one of 15 succumbed to the flu. At the Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport 1,635 people were treated for the flu with only 1 fatality. Outside of Davenport the figures were equally amazing:

With standard medical care: 1 in 17 died

Using Osteopathy: 1 in 36 died

Chiropractic care: 1 in 866 died

I rest my case.

These stats were collected well before
Energy Medicine had come along. Thank goodness in today's world we can utilize Energy Medicine, along with everything I've learned in massage therapy training, all the nutrition I've been nagging you about AND good chiropractic care! That's good, for our very well being depends on these critical aspects.

Vaccinations for the H1N1 flu? Not so much, thank you.
