Are Vaccines for Pets and People Effective?

  • 2 of 3

In researching this article, I found so much out there on both sides of the equation that just seemed to add fuel to the vaccine fire, which made me, for one, wonder if they ever worked at all to prevent anything, and even if they did what has been the trade off? Prevent an acute disease and end up with a chronic one instead. Has it been one big scam from the beginning, where results are twisted and manipulated through the media to make us think they have saved us from annihilation? What stops these Big Pharma companies from doing what even Dr. Oz raised last year on his show, and create the disease in their labs and then make and promote the vaccine and the drugs to treat or prevent it? Dr. Oz presented both sides and it was left as a draw!

Without exploring conspiracy theory here we can simply delve back into the history of human vaccines, and find that the numbers clearly show that the disease itself was already on the decline when the vaccine was introduced. Anyway most vaccines were scarcely a blip on the radar, not affecting the natural decline of the diseases at all. In a few unfortunate cases such as polio, the disease actually increased after vaccinations began.

In this article, Dr. Russell Blaylock is quoted as saying, “Vaccines not only do not work as advertised, but they actually damage the body’s innate immunity. Rather than teach the body how to respond to infections, vaccines actually inhibit the immune system’s ability to produce TH2-type cytokines, and suppress cellular immunity, which is how the body protects itself against deadly viruses and bacteria.”

Furthermore, in an article entitled, “Smoke, Mirrors, and the ‘Disappearance’ Of Polio,” author Suzanne Humpreys offers, when people bring up polio as such a vaccine success story, that this is not even close to being true. People for the most part seem convinced that the polio vaccine was a success in eradicating polio, all because we don’t see children in iron lungs anymore. But was it really eradicated? Dr. Humphreys poses this question instead: “Does the public have any idea that there are hundreds of cases of something that would once have been called polio, and some of those children will be dependent on a modern version of the iron lung?  No. Parents today think that the Salk vaccine eliminated any need for ventilators, because the pictures of all these children on iron lungs are no longer paraded in front of people in order to create fear. Besides which, today’s ‘iron lungs’ don’t look like a prototype submarine.  They are barely recognizable as today’s ‘ventilators.’”

To gain a greater understanding how we the public get duped into believing that certain diseases have disappeared because of vaccines, Dr. Humphreys further suggests that what is really going on here is herd medicine when she shares her feelings in the article and states that, “The tendency of a mass vaccination program is to herd people. People are not cattle or sheep. They should not be herded. A mass vaccination program carries a built-in temptation to oversimplify the problem; to exaggerate the benefits; to minimize or completely ignore the hazards; to discourage or silence scholarly, thoughtful and cautious opposition; to create an urgency where none exists; to whip up an enthusiasm among citizens that can carry with it the seeds of impatience, if not intolerance; to extend the concept of the police power of the state in quarantine far beyond its proper limitation; to assume simplicity when there is actually great complexity; to continue to support a vaccine long after it has been discredited; to ridicule honest and informed consent.”

Do we perceive our companion dogs and cats to be like sheep, too? Do they need to be herded as well? Are vaccines for our cats and dogs effective? Have your dogs or cats ever experienced an adverse reaction following their vaccines? If so, what do we in holistic health care, call the symptomology that results after a routine vaccination? Holistic health care practitioners refer to the condition(s) that result acutely or chronically, as “vaccinosis.”

There are a number of doctors and vets now who are openly saying that constant vaccinations do NOT save your pet, especially if they're not being exposed to the items in question. I think we need to explore all avenues, not just lock-step to what Big Pharma wants.

Vaccines can be very dangerous and there are often effective alternative options.

There is also a very controversial alternative homeopathically to traditional vaccines and we can learn a bit about them in relation to our animal companions here:

This just in from (NaturalNews) The concept of vaccinating to immunize began in 1796, when British apothecary (pharmacist) Edward Jenner inserted cowpox pus under the skin of an eight year old boy. Jenner based his experiment on an unsubstantiated rumor that anyone who had experienced cowpox would be immune to smallpox.

Over the next couple of years, Jenner vaccinated others with cowpox to immunize them against smallpox. Without any actual proof of efficacy and safety, Jenner impressed King George III enough with a bogus immunization guarantee that he was awarded the equivalent of today's $500,000.

Thus, Jenner was the first medical professional to administer diseased matter as medication to a healthy person and receive a substantial financial award. He was also the first to constantly denounce vaccination detractors successfully. He was protecting both his ego and large public purse.

Many health professionals throughout the 19th Century knew that there had been several cases of smallpox among those with cowpox histories. Jenner's premise was flawed. See just how flawed and only the tip of the iceberg here:

Check out this action by nurses regarding vaccinations. Very telling indeed!
