How To Care For Your Liver: Debunking The Popular & Harmful Liver Myths

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Your liver is #1 protector. There are many myths surrounding the liver that impede its ability to do its job. These myths include taking ox bile, doing liver flushes, doing coffee enemas, avoiding fructose, drinking apple cider vinegar, and more.

  • Reflect On:

    Besides avoiding the popular liver myths listed in this article, avoid eating too many fats, processed or raw, and increase your uptake of nutrient-dense, antioxidant-rich foods like fruit, vegetables, and herbs.

If you haven’t picked up a copy of Medical Medium’s new book, “Liver Rescue,” do yourself a favour today and get one. The book is a four-hundred page encyclopedia of in-depth knowledge regarding our liver, knowledge which has yet to be discovered by medical research, knowledge which could save you and your family’s and friends’ lives.

If you think that your liver is in pristine shape, you’re about to learn otherwise—in this day and age our livers are under tremendous pressure from the onslaught of pathogens and environmental toxins in our food, air, water, hygiene products, clothing, and households. And even if you grew up eating ‘clean,’ drinking clean water and living in a natural environment, your liver could be holding poisons (like toxic heavy metals) from many generations before you, passed down from your mother and grandmother.

What drove me to want to learn more about my liver came out of two factors. One, I grew up with a mouth full of amalgam (mercury) fillings, and two, in 2014 I had a severe mono and hepatitis A infection which nearly caused my liver to fail. So I knew that there was deep damage that had occurred from these two factors alone, not to mention that I grew up on a standard American diet (SAD) full of processed junk and void of fresh fruits and vegetables. Not to mention all of those years of binge drinking alcohol in my teens and early twenties (dare I say more).

Your liver is your number one protector

What I love most about Anthony William’s books is that they give us a unique understanding of the processes happening within the body. He humanizes our livers and helps us see how hard this organ is working for us at all times.

Our livers have been our number one protectors from the time we were in our mother’s wombs. That is its sole job—to protect us from the unfathomable amount of toxins in our environment. This protection code was passed down from your mother’s liver, to never give up on you, to take on the brunt of every pathogen, every toxin, and excess adrenaline that you come into contact with. It will do so with unwavering loyalty and commitment, even until its own demise. But we must not let this happen. At some point we must give back to this precious organ, we must swoop in and say enough is enough, it’s time to heal our livers.

Cleansing the liver cleans your blood and lymphatic system, loosens fat cells in the liver, and soothes the adrenal glands.

But cleansing the liver works best in baby steps; think about your lifetime accumulation of toxic heavy metals, viruses, and chemicals. To super-punch your liver all at once is a sure-fire way to cause too many toxins to release into the body without the chance of being properly eliminated. Then guess what happens to all of those excess toxins? They get reabsorbed by the liver.

But if we can learn to work with the liver, especially avoiding the damaging fads covered later in this article, we are that much closer to a life of peace. William says it perfectly,

“Imagine a world without chronic anger, without the suffering of babies and children, without aches and pains, without sleepless nights, without uncontrollable weight gain, without gnawing hunger, without out-of-rhythm hearts, without hot flashes and night sweats, without mood swings, without raging rashes, without roiling intestines, without back-up bowels, without blood sugar spikes and drops, without strokes, without heart attacks, without cancer. That’s a world of peaceful livers. Imagine how much kinder we would all be to each other and ourselves if we didn’t feel awful, or frightened of feeling awful, all the time.” Medical Medium: Liver Rescue, p. 256

How long does it take the liver to regenerate?

While there is no exact science that will tell us how long it takes for all of our cells to fully renew and regenerate, in the case of the liver, its peacekeeping job is so pertinent that it must run on a strict renewal clock. As William says, that number is nine.

The liver regenerates itself in cycles of three, a third every three years for a total nine year cycle.

The liver renews itself in thirds over nine year cycles. Usually, three months before a three-year mark is when renewal will pick up speed, and the liver will work on a fast, serious cell overhaul. Within just those few months, the liver can regenerate a third of its working cells. The same thing will happen again at the next three-year mark, renewing another third, and so on for the next three year cycle. It’s the same time table for everyone.

But don’t get too excited. Just because they are new cells does not mean they are clean. If you aren’t actively doing the work to cleanse the liver throughout your life, the new cells can get contaminated by toxic cells from the past. However, if you do the work to support your liver through a healthy lifestyle, you have hope of regenerating even the most damaged cells. As he states, make a point to eat clean in the months leading up to your 27th, 36th, 45th, 60th birthday; this means more antioxidant-rich foods like fruit and green juices, while minimizing fat. This will give a great boost during your regeneration cycles.

Common liver detox myths – What to avoid

Ox bile

While taking ox bile seems like a fail-proof method to increase bile production to breakdown fats, William states that our livers simply don’t like it. “[Ox bile] doesn’t fix the problem of weak digestion. It doesn’t fix the problem of your liver being stagnant or sluggish or underproducing its own bile.”

Apparently, ox bile is like an alien creature to our liver, and that it contains hundreds of undiscovered chemical compounds that are foreign to our stomach. These foreign enzymes are disruptive to the endocrine system, immune system, and nervous system. He says that medical science will never have the money or time to invest in the proper research that is needed to discover all of these qualities. When we take ox bile its like a shock to an already over-burdened liver.

The logic behind eating ox bile is similar to the age-old logic that eating liver will help regenerate your liver, or eating kidney will help regenerate your kidneys. Instead of ox bile, William suggests drinking celery juice. The mineral salts in celery juice will provide the liver with the proper tools to help build bile levels naturally.

Eating liver

When we understand the true function of our livers, it is then easy to understand why eating an animal’s liver makes no sense. The liver is a toxic reservoir, which means consuming liver is consuming poison. Even wild animals living in a pristine environment have livers ridden with adrenaline due to their fight or flight lifestyle. And while the liver does hold nutrients deep within its tissues, to get there you must pass layers of toxic waste. On the same note as the ox bile, animal livers contain compounds incompatible to the human body. And don’t even think about human livers, they are cesspools of toxins like plastics, radiation, DDT, viruses, bacteria, heavy metals, and the list goes on.

Liver flushes

The liver does not respond well to rigorous cleansing. If you push, it pushes back. If you push more it performs less, and it may even go into shutdown mode while doing a more aggressive cleanse.

When a liver flush is done wrong against the liver’s will, the bloodstream is where those toxins end up. This puts the brain and heart under direct attack by toxic sludge, which can cause erratic heartbeats, stress on the heart, inflammation, elevated adrenaline, and electrical confusion of the heart, all while you are busy looking for stones in the toilet.

William makes another controversial claim—those liver stones aren’t stones at all. They’re fatty globules formed by the ingestion of olive oil which coagulate in the colon and are then expelled. While Gallstones are a thing, they too are not what is passed during a gallbladder flush.  Drinking a heaping amount of oil is a shock to the liver and gallbladder; it shuts down its many important functions to deal with the megadose of fat. The liver is then forced to produce an emergency level of bile to protect the pancreas, and those who already have a weak pancreas become high risk for developing pancreatitis.

Instead of stressing the liver and gallbladder through a flush, William suggests reducing fat and protein intake while increasing your intake of greens (spinach, kale, radishes, mustard greens, celery, and asparagus) and fruits like cherries, berries, melons, lemons, limes, oranges, grapefruit, tomatoes, and pineapple. Doing this will help dissolve the stones over time.

Fructose intolerance

Fructose intolerance is perhaps one of the most dangerous myths out there, because if you avoid fruit sugars, your liver will never heal, says William. Fructose often gets lumped in with lactose (dairy sugar) and gluten in naming which foods feed viruses and other pathogens.

Furthermore, William says that “it’s impossible for any test in any lab or clinic to separate out fructose and know what it specifically does inside the body.” It is part of the anti-healthy carb/anti-fruit movement that robs people of the very foods that heal their chronic conditions. The liver especially needs fructose to restore and defend itself. The issue is completely misunderstood—when people experience negative symptoms from eating fruit what they’re really facing are detox symptoms brought on by the fruits cleansing properties.

Anti-fruit practitioners almost always are high-fat advocates, which only promotes keeping the blood and liver toxic. William also makes a distinction for those diagnosed with hereditary fructose intolerance (HFI). He says that no one with HFI is completely missing specific enzymes, but rather all of their enzyme levels and chemical functions are low due to having a degenerate liver.

The key is to do the opposite of avoiding fruit: eat lots of it, which restores a stagnant liver and brings back all of the missing enzymes and chemical functions. The same goes for people diagnosed with fructose malabsorption; excess fructose is being picked up in the blood because the intestinal tract is filled with rancid fats which are not being broken down due to a sluggish liver. The solution is simple: reduce fats, which in turn keeps the blood-fat ratio balanced, reducing any of the aforementioned symptoms when consuming fructose.

Apple cider vinegar (ACV)

ACV is thought to create alkalinity and improve digestion. While apples themselves are miracle cures, William says that ACV has more bad than good properties. The good comes from ACV’s host of minerals, amino acids, phytochemicals and other nutrients from the apples themselves and the microorganisms from fermentation.

ACV is the best vinegar to use if you are going to use vinegar; however, our livers do not like vinegar in the same way they despise alcohol. When we consume vinegar, it mixes with the natural salts in your blood stream and creates a pickling effect in the body. While this may not cause negative symptoms from eating a salad here and there, consuming ACV daily in flushes or shots will eventually add up.

ACV comes into the stomach extremely acidic, which causes the liver to try to alkalize or neutralize it. This weakens the hydrochloric acid and breaks down the gastric juices, and as the ACV continues to the liver it gives the liver a shot of acidosis. Again, it’s not the worst thing for the liver, but it’s far from cleansing.

Coffee enemas

Coffee enemas are gaining popularity in the treatment of chronic diseases like colon cancer, and while the aim of coffee enemas are admirable (detoxing the liver), the truth is that coffee is an acidic, dehydrating, and stimulating liquid.

As Anthony explains, drinking coffee is much different than inserting it rectally. This is because our stomachs have built-in protective measures to safe-guard you against coffee’s effects. When coffee enters the stomach, alarm bells ring in the pancreas, liver, and intestinal tract. It is dispersed and diffused properly by the time it enters the bloodstream.

When coffee enters the rectum, it enters the blood directly and its stimulating effect shocks the nervous system and the adrenals release adrenaline. The liver despises adrenaline, claims Anthony, and it then has to soak it all up to protect your heart. Caffeine creates a constant adrenaline surge, but this is especially the case when caffeine is administered through the rectum.

Also important to note: some of the toxins purged from the liver by the caffeine end up being reabsorbed by the liver because they cannot all be properly eliminated from the body. Anthony suggests that enemas can be extremely beneficial in detoxing the liver, but to use filtered lemon water instead, which cleanses the liver without the added adrenaline rush.

Beets

Beets are often hailed as the liver detox go-to food, and while they do have blood-cleansing abilities, the issue, William says, is that organic, non-GMO beets are difficult to come by these days due to cross-pollination. Cross-pollination is becoming such an issue that even organic beets can be tainted at the seed.

It may not be the greatest reason to stop eating beets altogether, however there are many other liver-cleansing fruit that do the job much more effectively. For example, red pitaya (dragon fruit), or wild blueberries pack a far more powerful detoxing punch.

Highly alkaline water

When asking the question, ‘do we need to drink alkaline water?’, Anthony brings it back to the liver. He says that a higher pH water will not further cleanse the liver, and that when highly alkaline water hits the stomach, the stomach must compensate and try to bring that pH down. The same goes for drinking acidic water, but in this case the stomach must bring the pH up. This uses the stomach’s reserves, energy, and seven-acid blend, as well as pancreatic strength and enzymes, to change the water’s structure so that it is safe to release into the intestinal tract.

When a large amount of alkaline or acidic water is consumed at once, the stomach must pass the neutralization job to the liver. The liver uses a special bile store that traps the water until it is at an acceptable pH. This special bile is made up of enzymes, minerals, and hormones that the liver stores long-term, and using this store slows down the liver’s main functions quite substantially. William states that the key is to avoid drinking large amounts of alkaline water at once, or to try drinking a water with a pH of 7.5-8 instead.

Protect your liver

With over 2,000 chemical functions, your liver is a busy bee. Avoiding the aforementioned fads will ensure that your liver can do its many important jobs without distraction. At the end of the day, what is most important for healing your liver is that you are flooding your body with nutrient-dense, anti-oxidant rich foods like fruit, vegetables, and herbs, while avoiding too many fats (processed or raw). It is especially important to eat fruit alone, as eating fruit with fat will prevent our cells from absorbing all of the important nutrients.

How A Nasal Obstruction & Tongue Tie Affects Sleep, Learning, Attention and Mood

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    When breathing isn’t proper, many things can go wrong. Some nasal obstruction symptoms include mouth breathing, low energy, chewing with the mouth open, teeth grinding, and sleep apnea.

  • Reflect On:

    Do you or a loved one have a nasal obstruction and/or tongue tie?

Has your child gone down every treatment and therapy route with little success? Could it be that all the doctors and therapists you have previously consulted with missed this? Absolutely, Yes! Both my children had multiple tongue ties and an airway obstruction that contributed to learning difficulty, speech problems, ADHD, sleep disturbances, and mood issues.

Sadly, emotional, social, and physical impairments are all too common. Nearly one in 12 children ages 3–17 have a disorder related to voice, speech, language, feeding, or swallowing. Almost one in 10 children have ADHD. One in six children has a developmental disability. One in two-hundred children has an intellectual disability. Up to 50% of children will experience a sleep problem, which can lead to daytime sleepiness, irritability, behavioral problems, learning difficulties, and poor academic performance.

Airway Obstruction – Poor Nasal Breathing

When breathing isn’t proper, many things can go wrong. Breathing through the nose is essential. It filters the air going into your lungs and regulates the amount of air that comes into the body. Breathing correctly through the nose allows the body to take in the proper amount of oxygen, the body and brain needs. Getting enough oxygen helps to calm the mind and increase our energy level. The nose also houses olfactory bulbs, which are direct extensions of part of the brain called the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus is responsible for many functions in our body, including generating neurotransmitters that influence memory and emotion.

Some nasal obstruction symptoms include mouth breathing, low energy, chewing with the mouth open, teeth grinding, and sleep apnea. Other symptoms are a forward head posture, a tongue that rests on the bottom of the mouth, snoring, memory problems, coughing during sleep, daytime fatigue, weight problems, hyperactivity, and trouble concentrating. Sleep Disordered Breathing is one potential root cause of poor growth, development impairments, a lower intellect, poor cognition, affecting school performance, and more.

In the Journal of Sleep, “Studies show that nasal obstruction may dramatically affect breathing in sleep, and consequentially daytime vigilance and behavior.”

There is an interesting phenomenon when the airway is blocked. The body will overcompensate by increasing the adrenaline (fight or flight) in the body to stimulate breathing and open up nasal passages. This increased adrenaline can cause a child to feel very anxious, angry, hyper, and unfocused. In adults, this can lead to hypertension, heart attacks, strokes, fatigue, and more.  Many go undiagnosed for years. Doctors may miss a diagnosis because the obstruction is more pronounced during sleep. And, sometimes, we believe our allergies are causing our congestion alone. When, in fact, there is an obstruction affecting our breathing.

What Causes a Nasal Obstruction?

There are many possible causes of nasal airway obstruction. Deformities or irregularities are primarily genetic unless there is an injury to the nose. A trained Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor (ENT) or a Functional Dentist can do a CT scan to determine if there is a problem. Such issues are narrow mouth pallet, a septal deviation, a collapsed nostril, enlarged bone/tissue turbinates, or a sizeable egg-like air sac in the nose. Nasal congestion can also be due to a condition called vasomotor rhinitis (VMR). Without an allergy present, excessive blood flow causes congestion in the nose. The ENT will also look for large adenoids, allergies, and nasal polyps, causing an obstruction. Typically, a person with a blockage has multiple factors at play.

Treatment Options Depending on Causation

  • Pallet expansion
  • Adenoids and Tonsil removal (typically the first and possibly only thing we did in hopes of correcting sleep disturbances – before the medical community recognized the many other possible causes)
  • Aggressive and more invasive nasal surgery (cure rate is not too high)
  • Minimally invasive surgical procedure called MIST (minimally invasive sinus technique)

Initially introduced in the 1990s, MIST revolutionized nasal surgery. It takes less than an hour to complete by an experienced surgeon. There are no incisions, scars, or nasal packing. Discomfort is minimal and has a higher success rate than the older methods.

 Tongue or Lip Tie

 A tongue or lip-tie affects up to 11% of all newborns. According to the 2017 Cochrane review, and it is often overlooked. This condition restricts the range of motion in a baby’s tongue. It presents as a concise and thick band of tissue that tethers the bottom of the tongue’s tip to the roof of the mouth. A tongue-tie or lip-tie may interfere with breastfeeding, speech, eating, swallowing, and the jaw’s oral motor development. Some of the risk factors for developing a tie in utero are often genetic. However, smoking and alcohol use, medication, chemicals, viral infections, methylation issues, and chronic stress may also cause it. A surgical procedure is sometimes required. However, some ties can be resolved with chiropractic manipulation, myofascial release, or exercises alone. An early indication of a tongue or lip tie is the inability to latch on a bottle or breastfeed. A child may appear to latch correctly, and so the condition is not discovered. However, if your child suffers from colic, sleep disturbances, excessive drooling, or spitting up, this may be the cause. Allopathic physicians may insist that the child has an aversion to the breast milk or that you are eating something too gassy. Synthetic formula and Prevacid or other antacid is often prescribed without checking for this condition.

Takeaway

Suppose you or your child is struggling and are exhibiting any signs of an obstruction or tongue tie. In that case, I encourage you to explore it with your ENT or functional dentist before resorting to medication.

COVID-19 Survival Rates Have Many Scientists/Doctors Questioning Masks & Lockdown

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    All restrictions on restaurants and other business in Florida have been lifted, and so have local fines against people who refuse to wear masks after the CDC released new survival rates.

  • Reflect On:

    Why are opinions and narratives that oppose the WHO being censored, ridiculed, and largely ignored? Why aren't they discussed openly and transparently?

What Happened: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis recently lifted all restrictions on restaurants and other business in Florida and banned local fines against people who refuse to wear masks. He did so after showing new statistics just released by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) showing very high survival rates, as you can see from the picture picture above. The CDC has a page on their website titled “Covid-19 Pandemic Planning Scenarios.” According to them, “Each scenario is based on a set of numerical values for biological and epidemiological characteristics of COVID-19 illness, which is caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. These values—called parameter values—can be used in models to estimate the possible effects of COVID-19 in U.S. states and localities. That’s where the numbers come from.

Questioning Lockdown & Masks, A Theme From The Very Beginning: The world’s leading scientists in the field and from other fields have been questioning lockdown measures from the very beginning of this pandemic, due to the fact that many of them believe and have believed that we are dealing with a virus similar, and even less severe than viruses that have been circling the globe for decades, infecting hundreds of millions and killings tens of millions of people every single year.

For example, did you know that metapneumovirus has been shown to have worldwide circulation with nearly universal infection by age 5? Did you know that outbreaks of metapneumovirus have been well documented every single year, especially in long term care facilities with mortality rates of up to 50%? () Did you know that human metapneumovirus infection results in a large number of hospitalizations of children every single year? Did you know it has a substantial morbidity rate, again in the elderly, but also among children as well? Did you know nearly 1-2 million children every single year die of these types of respiratory illnesses because they lead to acute respiratory illness? (source)

At the beginning of the pandemic, multiple professors from Stanford criticized the World Health Organization for creating unnecessary fear and hysteria.

They make it quite clear that if the projections being given by the World Health Organization are correct, then “the extraordinary measures being carried out in cities and states around the country are surely justified.” But they also make the point that “there’s little evidence to confirm that premise – and projections of the death toll could plausibly be orders of magnitude too high.” It turns out that they were right.

John P. A. Ioannidis, a professor of medicine and epidemiology, recently published an article entitled “A fiasco in the making? As the coronavirus pandemic takes hold, we are making decisions without reliable data. In the article, he also argues that there is simply not enough data to make claims about reported case fatality rate.

He stated that rates, “like the official 3.4% rate from the World Health Organization, cause horror — and are meaningless. He was right. Prior to the recent CDC update, he emphasized that the infection fatality rate is close to 0 percent for people under the age of 45 years old.

Michael Levitt, a Biophysicist and a professor of structural biology at Stanford University, criticized the WHO as well as Facebook for censoring different information and informed perspectives regarding the Coronavirus. This is another strong point, why are/were social media outlets censoring information and opinions that did not match that which was given by the WHO? These actions have only raised more eyebrows, as we now have a digital authoritarian Orwellian “fact-checker”
patrolling the internet.

Almost all of the science we were hearing, for example like organizations like the World Health Organization (WHO) was wrong…This has been a disgraceful situation for science..Reports were released openly, shared by email, and all I got back was abuse. And you got to see that everything I said in that first six weeks was actually true and for political reasons, we as scientists let our views be corrupted. The data had very clear things to say. Nobody said to be “let me check your numbers” they all just said “stop talking like that.” – Levitt

When Dr. Ron Paul shared his opinion a few months ago that “People should ask themselves whether this coronavirus “pandemic” could be a big hoax, with the actual danger of the disease massively exaggerated by those who seek to profit – financially or politically – from the ensuing panic” he was censored and marked as false news, having his social media distribution limited.

More than 500 German doctors & scientists have signed on as representatives of an organization called the “Corona Extra-Parliamentary Inquiry Committee” to investigate what’s happening on our planet with regards to COVID-19, expressing the same sentiment. They came together to investigate the severity of the virus, and whether or not the actions taken by governments around the world, and in this case the German government, are  justified and not causing more harm than good.

You can access the full english transcripts on the organizations website if interested.

This group has been giving multiple conferences in Germany, in one of the most recent, Dr. Heiko Schöning, one of the organizations leaders, stated that “We have a lot of evidence that it (the new coronavirus) is a fake story all over the world.”  To put it in context, he wasn’t referring to the virus being fake, but simply that it’s no more dangerous than the seasonal flu (or just as dangerous) and that there is no justification for the measures being taken to combat it.  You can read more about the story here

Another example would be a recent report published in the British Medical Journal  has suggested that quarantine measures in the United Kingdom as a result of the new coronavirus may have already killed more UK seniors than the coronavirus has during the peak of the virus.

Are masks even effective? Many studies claim yes, but many also claim no.

Many scientists and doctors in North America are also expressing the same sentiments. For example, The Physicians For Informed Consent (PIC) recently published a report titled  “Physicians for Informed Consent (PIC) Compares COVID-19 to Previous Seasonal and Pandemic Flu Periods.” According to them, the infection/fatality rate of COVID-19 is 0.26%. You can read more about that and access their resources and reasoning here.

Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, a specialist in microbiology and one of the most cited research scientists in German history is also part of Corona Extra-Parliamentary Inquiry Committee mentioned above and has also expressed the same thing, multiple times early on in the pandemic all the way up to today.

Implementation of the current draconian measures that are so extremely restrict fundamental rights can only be justified if there is reason to fear that a truly, exceptionally dangerous virus is threatening us. Do any scientifically sound data exist to support this contention for COVID-19? I assert that the answer is simply, no. – Bhakdi. You can read more about him here.

And there is the issue of exaggerated death counts. For example, Toronto Public Health tweeted in late June that “Individuals who have died with COVID-19, but not as a result of COVID-19, are included in the case counts for COVID-19 deaths in Toronto.” There are multiple examples from different countries. You can read more about that here.

Vittorio Sgarbi, Italian politician Mayor of Sutri, gave an emotional speech at a hearing on the 24th of April where he emphasized that the number of deaths in Italy due to COVID-19 are completely false and that the people are being lied to. You can watch that and read more about it here.

A chemistry professor at the University of Waterloo has distributed a course outline to students, saying his in-class exams aren’t mandatory “because of the COVID fake emergency.”  Ronald B. Brown, Ph.D., from the School of Public Health and Health Systems at the University of Waterloo recently stated that the COVID-19 fatality rate is the “worst miscalculation in the history of humanity.” Brown is currently completing his second doctorate degree, this time in epidemiology at the University of Waterloo. Not long ago, Brown published a paper in Disaster Medicine and Public Health Preparedness, titled “Public health lessons learned from biases in coronavirus mortality overestimation.”

Below is a statement Brown recently gave to John C. A. Manley, a journalist who was the first to cover the story:

The subject of this article is disruptive, to say the least, although it is not as obvious from the title. The manuscript cites the smoking-gun, documented evidence showing that the public’s overreaction to the coronavirus pandemic was based on the worst miscalculation in the history of humanity, in my opinion. My manuscript underwent an intensive peer-review process. You are the first media guy who has responded to my invitation.

The examples above aren’t even the tip of the ice-berg, but they are ones I’ve used many times in previous articles. I am posting them above just to hammer home the point.

Why This Is Important: This information is important because it highlights that the measures we are being mandated & forced to take are being done using flawed data to justify it. What also has more people concerned is that the opinions and research of many doctors and scientists around the world, some of them quite renowned, are being banned and censored from social media platforms for simply contradicting the information given to us by the World Health Organization (WHO). Why are people like Julian Assange really in jail? Why are people exposing war crimes and other misdoings within the WHO, as Assange has, punished, and the ones committing the actual crimes are the ones we identify with? Should we not have the right to examine information openly and freely, and determine for ourselves what is and what isn’t? A common theme with regards to this pandemic seems to be using fear and hysteria to make the threat seem much greater than it actually is, and then to propose the solution. Perhaps Edward Snowden was right when he said that governments are using the coronavirus to take away more of our rights and freedoms, and they won’t come back, just as they didn’t come back after 9/11. Is there anybody politically and financially gaining from this pandemic? What’s going on here?

The Takeaway: 

At the end of the day, we have to keep asking ourselves if our designated government and global health authorities actually have our best interests at hand. If not, why do we continue to support it?

There are many examples that show these institutions do not work to make humanity thrive, but instead oppress humanity. When it comes to the World Health Organization (WHO) for example, Wikileaks exposed how much they are influenced by pharmaceutical companies. Vimeo also recently completely banned a documentary that exposed the same thing. That particular documentary featured many scientists, doctors and even officials from within the WHO.

It’s quite clear to many that government doesn’t really put the citizens it claims to represent first, but instead corporations and big money. So why do we constantly listen to their advice? Why do we constantly rely on them for truth and information? Why do we rely on them for guidance? Would we not be better off determining for ourselves what is appropriate, especially in the face of such controversial times when so much is being exposed?

Is it time humanity becomes self-governed? Is it time we steep away from the need for such parental figures like government? It seems like we are currently in the process of doing this, with many of us beginning to awaken. Collectively, we will be creating a new world, that matches a consciousness of self-governance, and the key is to operate from a place of oneness and peace within, which is a journey of awakening to who we truly are, as opposed to what we have been taught to think. We are in a time of a consciousness renaissance.

CDC Director: ‘Masks May Offer More Protection From COVID-19 Than The Vaccine’

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    CDC director Robert Redfield said on Wednesday that wearing a mask might be "more guaranteed" to protect an individual from the coronavirus than a vaccine.

  • Reflect On:

    Why is there so much conflicting information out there? Why is it so difficult to arrive at any concrete truth? How does the politicization of science play a role?

What Happened: Centers For Disease Control (CDC) Director Robert Redfield recently stated that wearing a mask may be “more guaranteed” to protect an individual from the coronavirus than a vaccine. This calls into question the efficacy of the vaccine, which is set to make its way into the public domain at the end of this year, or shortly after that. We thought we’d cover this story to bring up the efficacy of vaccines in general, and the growing vaccine hesitancy that now exists within a number of people, scientists and physicians across the world.

“I’m not gonna comment directly about the president, but I am going to comment as the CDC director that face masks, these face masks, are the most important powerful public health tool we have.” – Redfield

Not long ago, many scientists presented facts about vaccines and vaccine safety at the recent Global Health Vaccine Safety summit hosted by the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland. At the conference, Professor Heidi Larson, a Professor of Anthropology and the Risk and Decision Scientist Director at the Vaccine Confidence Project emphasized the issue of growing vaccine hesitancy.

The other thing that’s a trend, and an issue, is not just confidence in providers but confidence of health care providers, we have a very wobbly health professional frontline that is starting to question vaccines and the safety of vaccines. That’s a huge problem, because to this day any study I’ve seen… still, the most trusted person on any study I’ve seen globally is the health care provider…”

Redfield’s comments came after President Trump downplayed the effectiveness of wearing mask, and Trump also stated that Covid would probably go away without a vaccine, referring to the concept of ‘herd immunity’ as practiced in Sweden, but has also been quite outspoken about the fact that a vaccine may arrive by November.

When it comes to the COVID vaccine, multiple clinical trials for COVID-19 vaccines have shown severe reactions within 10 days after taking the vaccine. You can read more about that here.  The US government and Yale University also recently collaborated in a clinical trial to determine the best messaging to persuade Americans to take the COVID-19 vaccine. You can read more about that here.

Are Masks Effective?

Multiple studies have claimed to show definitively  that mask-wearing effectively prevents transmission of the coronavirus, especially recent ones. This seems to be the general consensus and the information that’s come from our federal health regulatory agencies. There are also multiple studies calling the efficacy of masks into question. For example, a fairly recent study published in the New England Medical Journal  by a group of Harvard doctors outlines how it’s already known that masks provide little to zero benefit when it comes to protection a public setting. According to them,

We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes). The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.

You can read more about that story here and find other complimenting studies.

When it comes to masks, there are multiple studies on both sides of the coin.

Then we have many experts around the world calling into question everything from masks to lockdown. For example, The Physicians For Informed Consent (PIC) recently published a report titled “Physicians for Informed Consent (PIC) Compares COVID-19 to Previous Seasonal and Pandemic Flu Periods.” According to them, the infection/fatality rate of COVID-19 is 0.26%.

They are one of many who have emphasized this point.

More than 500 German doctors & scientists have signed on as representatives of an organization called the “Corona Extra-Parliamentary Inquiry Committee” to investigate what’s happening on our planet with regards to COVID-19, and also make similar points. You can read more about that story here.

Again, there are many examples from all over the world from various academics, doctors and scientists in the field.

This is why there is so much confusion surrounding this pandemic, because there is so much conflicting information that opposes what we are hearing from our health authorities. Furthermore, a lot of information that opposes the official narrative has been censored from social media platforms, also raising suspicion among the general public.

How Effective Are Vaccines?

Vaccines have been long claimed to be a miracle, and the most important health intervention for the sake of disease prevention of our time. But as mentioned above, vaccine hesitancy is growing, and it’s growing fast.

According to a study published in the journal EbioMedicine,

Over the past two decades several vaccine controversies have emerged in various countries, including France, inducing worries about severe adverse effects and eroding confidence in health authorities, experts, and science. These two dimensions are at the core of the vaccine hesitancy (VH) observed in the general population. These two dimensions are at the core of the vaccine hesitancy (VH) observed in the general population. VH is defined as delay in acceptance of vaccination, or refusal, or even acceptance with doubts about its safety and benefits, with all these behaviors and attitudes varying according to context, vaccine, and personal profile, despite the availability of vaccine services. VH presents a challenge to physicians who must address their patients’ concerns about vaccines..

In the United States, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) shows what vaccines have resulted in deaths, injury, permanent disabilities and hospitalizations. The National Childhood Vaccine Injury act has also paid out nearly $4 billion dollars to families of vaccine injured children.

According to a MedAlerts, the cumulative raw count of adverse events from measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines alone was: 93,929 adverse events, 1,810 disabilities, 6,902 hospitalizations, and 463 deaths. What is even more disturbing about these numbers is that VAERS is a voluntary and passive reporting system that has been found to only capture 1% of adverse events.

The measles vaccine has also been plagued with a lack of effectiveness, with constant measles outbreaks in heavily vaccinated population pointing towards a failing vaccine. You can read more about that in-depth and access more science on it here. In 2015, nearly 40 percent of measles cases analyzed in the US were a result of the vaccine.

It’s not just the MMR vaccine that shows a lack of effectiveness. For example, a new study published in The Royal Society of Medicine is one of multiple studies over the years that has emerged questioning the efficacy of the HPV vaccine. The researchers conducted an appraisal of published phase 2 and 3 efficacy trials in relation to the prevention of cervical cancer and their analysis showed “the trials themselves generated significant uncertainties undermining claims of efficacy” in the data they used. The researchers emphasized that “it is still uncertain whether human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination prevents cervical cancer as trials were not designed to detect this outcome, which takes decades to develop.”  The researchers point out that the trials used to test the vaccine may have “overestimated” the efficacy of the vaccine.

It’s one of multiple studies to call into question the efficacy and safety of the HPV vaccine. It’s also been responsible for multiple deaths and permanent disabilities.

Another point to make regarding vaccine injury is that data was collected from June 2006 through October 2009 on 715,000 patients, and 1.4 million doses (of 45 different vaccines) were given to 376,452 individuals. Of these doses, 35,570 possible reactions (2.6 percent of vaccinations) were identified. This is an average of 890 possible events, an average of 1.3 events per clinician, per month. This data was presented at the 2009 AMIA conference. This data comes 2010 HHS pilot study by the Federal Agency for Health Care Research (AHCR) that found that 1 in every 39 vaccines causes injury, a shocking comparison to the claims from the CDC of 1 in every million.
