While the media is having a field day reporting fake news, no real reporters (if there are any left) are covering the single most important medical issue of today. Are vaccines the best way to deal with infectious diseases?
Right now, at the request of President Trump, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is organizing a way for responsible people to investigate the scientific fraud that is going on at the CDC regarding the safety and effectiveness of vaccines. If you are unaware of this project, you might want to check out the press conference Kennedy held at the National Press Club recently that the mainstream press didn’t attend.
The real issue is that vaccines have never been the safest and the best way to deal with epidemic diseases. How they became promoted as the great savior of humanity is largely an untold story until now.
HOW THE POLITICAL SYSTEM WAS SET UP TO ESTABLISH MEDICAL “TRUTH”
Back in the old days, in the early 1600s, Frances Bacon, Chancellor of England, the fellow who coined the phrase “Knowledge is Power”, convinced the powers-that-be that a national academy of sciences should be established where “elite” scientists could be organized like a fraternity to determine official “truth” in the sciences. This elite group would be provided with all the financial help needed so they could study the science of things and decree scientific “truth” as they saw fit. They were to be isolated from ordinary citizens and any scientific issue that did not fit their version of “truth”, was to be condemned. Thus, the Royal Society of London was established in 1660.
Sir Isaac Newton, who, these days, is considered one of the greatest scientific minds in history, once served as head of the Society. He, indeed, made major contributions to official laws of science. And, while Rene Descartes died before the Society was established, his ideas became bedrock for this “elite” group, as well.
Cambridge biologist, Rupert Sheldrake, in his book, Science Set Free, points out that the scientific “truths” of today, come directly from these “elites” and consist of 10 core beliefs that scientists today take for granted without question. They are:
- Everything Is essentially mechanical. Dogs, for example, are complex mechanisms, rather than living organisms with goals of their own. Even people are machines, “lumbering robots,” in Richard Dawkins’s vivid phrase, with brains that are like genetically programmed computers.
- All matter is unconscious. It has no inner life or subjectivity or point of view. Even human consciousness is an illusion produced by the material activities of brains.
- The total amount of matter and energy is always the same with the exception of the Big Bang, when all matter and energy of the universe suddenly appeared.
- The laws of nature are fixed. They are the same today as they were at the beginning, and they will stay the same forever.
- Nature is purposeless, and evolution has no goal or direction.
- All biological inheritance is material, carried in the genetic material, DNA, and in other material structures.
- Minds are inside heads and are nothing but the activities of brains. When you look at a tree, the image of the tree you are seeing is not “out there,” where it seems to be, but inside your brain,.
- Memories are stored as material traces in brains and are wiped out at death.
- Unexplained phenomena such as telepathy are illusory.
- Mechanistic medicine is the only kind that really works.
MESMER DEVELOPS HEALING METHODS BASED ON QUANTUM PHYSICS NOT BIOCHEMISTRY
In Paris, in the 1780s, a man named Franz Mesmer, an allopathically-trained doctor believed that, in addition to the mechanistic aspects of the human body touted by all the royal societies of Europe, there was something else. He described what he thought was an invisible magnetic “fluid” that flowed throughout all nature including the cosmos and the human body. When there is an unequal distribution of this “fluid”, illness occurred and when equilibrium was restored, the person recovered. He developed various techniques that could channel, store and convey this “fluid” to other people. He called this “fluid” “animal magnetism” and his techniques “magnetic healing”.
Naturally, the-powers-that-be needed to stop him, particularly because Queen Marie Antoinette was one of his most ardent supporters and King Louis XIV was not too pleased. In addition, Mesmer was the toast of pre-Revolutionary War Paris with associates suspected of being political agitators.
King Louis XIV convened a commission of “elite” scientists and medical experts to take a secret look at what Mesmer was talking about. As they were all philosophically committed to believing the world was a predictable, material, tangible system measurable by long-believed standards of measurement, they were hoping to find something they could measure. Since this “fluid” was invisible and not of the material world, they declared Mesmer a quack. That there were thousands who claimed they had been healed by his methods, didn’t count. Anecdotal information is not considered scientific evidence then or now by the standards of the “elite” “experts”. Mesmer became a laughing stock in the press so he left Paris.
After the Revolution, the Academy of Berlin formally acknowledged the validity of Mesmer’s ideas and invited him to Berlin but he chose to stay in Switzerland where he died In 1815.
German allopath, Samuel Hahnemann had read about Mesmer’s work and it had provided the spark of an idea that turned into the philosophy and development of homeopathy. Hahnemann understood Mesmer’s idea about a universal energy that flowed through the universe and through people as well. He decided to call this energy the “vital force”. Like Mesmer, Hahnemann saw that if this vital force was disturbed, a person could become ill and if he could develop medicines that were able to restore normal flow of this energy, the patient could be restored to health.
For the record, the Chinese call it Qi, the Ayurvedic doctors of India call it Prana. 20th Century quantum physicists Max Planck and Albert Einstein called this field of energy “The Matrix” and both of them acknowledged that a greater mind had created it, thus confirming a spiritual dimension to its existence in modern times.
D.D. Palmer, a deeply religious man, took up magnetic healing and by the end of the 1890s, established chiropractic, a system of healing that is based on the idea that there was an Innate Intelligence as he called this mysterious “fluid” that he thought flowed through the nervous system via the spine. The idea was that spinal adjustments provided a way to free up the flow in the nervous system to restore health. Chiropractors are taught that their profession evolved is from the work of Franz Mesmer.
OUR FOUNDING FATHERS WANTED NO PART OF POLITICALLY-CONTROLLED MEDICAL “TRUTH”
It is important to note that here in America, our Founding Fathers knew all about Royal science and medical academies and had rejected them based on the advice given by leading allopathic doctor of the day and signer of the Declaration of Independence, Dr. Benjamin Rush:
“To restrict the art of healing to one class of men and deny equal privileges to others will constitute the Bastille of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic and have no place in a republic.”
Thomas Jefferson, who practiced lay medicine like all Colonial Americans were encouraged to do, had strong opinions about the medical “truths” from Europe which he expressed often.
Considered one of the leading philosophers of the Age of Enlightenment, he had adamantly rejected the “scientific” justification for the use of mercury, lancing and bleeding pints and quarts of blood out of people because he believed they were based on some “fanciful theory of corpuscular attraction, of chemical agency, of mechanical powers……” some of which, he said, came and went like fashionable dresses from Paris. Jefferson was convinced that eventually it was the common sense Americans that would lead the medical profession into sound principles that really helped heal patients.
While both Jefferson and Rush knew about Mesmer’s ideas, and disagreed with each other about their validity, they and the rest of the Founding Fathers would be appalled to find the medical monopoly we have in America today.
THE RACE TO INVENT PATENTABLE (aka PROFITABLE) VACCINES FOR INTERNATIONAL TRADE
From an historical point of view, you have to keep in mind that in the 1800s, around the time vaccines were being developed, people in the poor parts of town lived in squalor. There was no heat, running water or sanitary sewers. People had barely enough to eat. One in seven Germans died of tuberculosis.
Consequently, epidemics of all kinds swept through this filth and, even today, we hear tales of high death rates that are used to scare us into supporting more and more vaccines.
By the middle of the century, as the Industrial Age was chugging full steam ahead, particularly in Europe, the financial means to clean up cities became available. Public health officials started to make the connection that cleaning up the filth, providing running water, better food and better housing could contribute greatly to taming epidemics.
Meanwhile, the scientific “elite” were toiling in their laboratories and the big news of the day was that Louis Pasteur of France and Robert Koch of Germany were studying microbes to figure out how to invent patentable vaccines to kill them. This lab work gave all the “elites” an opportunity to talk endlessly about their “fanciful biochemical theories” and which of the germ theories was their favorite. Chemical companies started perking up their ears as the prospect of patentable drug products that could spell major profits and international trade. The public was entertained in the front pages of the press across Europe about all the excitement.
School children today are taught that both Pasteur and Koch are giants of science having saved the world from dread diseases. However, nobody ever mentions that both of them were embroiled in accusations of fraud and they were both part of the public fight with the followers of Samuel Hahnemann, founder of Homeopathy.
My mentor, Harris Coulter, in his book, Divided Legacy, Volume IV: A History of the Schism in Medical Thought – Twentieth Century Medicine, the Bacterial Era, covers, in detail, this race to develop successful vaccines. A detailed technical account of this three-way battle Coulter describes is provided here: http://sueyounghistories.com/archives/2008/06/19/louis-pasteur-ac nd-homeopathy/
In a nutshell, both Pasteur and Koch were well aware of Homeopathy’s major successes.
Consequently, each, in his own way, developed vaccines that were material in nature so they could be patented using what they thought were homeopathic principles. Problem was, homeopathy is an energy medicine and its healing qualities are based on Mesmer’s idea that it’s the vibrations that matter. They are non-toxic in nature unlike the allopathic vaccines, which had and still have all sorts of material ingredients that can cause harm. In addition, homeopathy, as a practice is focused on strengthening the person’s entire body and spirit, and not in the business of trying to kill germs.
Meanwhile, in our times, after Pasteur’s last male heir donated his lab notes to Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris, it was confirmed by Princeton Pasteur scholar, Gerald L. Geison, that Pasteur fudged the facts and couldn’t pass ethical or scientific muster on several of his key experiments.
Similarly, Koch wasn’t against a little fraud or two, either. The introduction of his vaccine Tuberculin turned into a public disaster across Europe. People got sick, lots of people died, and when Rudolf Virchow, now best known as the Father of Pathology, did autopsies on some of Koch’s victims, he found that the vaccine did not kill the targeted germ at all. It just helped create a new disease. The scandal was very public so to avoid having to answer to the screw up, Koch took his 16-year-old mistress to Egypt for a month to hide out. He later was awarded the Nobel Prize for his body of work but never regained his reputation.
HOMEOPATHY’S MAJOR CONTRIBUTION TO CONTROLLING EPIDEMIC DISEASES FROM DAY ONE
Samuel Hahnemann posed a very dangerous challenge to the “elite” medical experts of the day. He was not only a well-trained allopath, but he was a translator of medical discussions in several ancient and modern languages so he had a much broader understanding of medical thought than most other allopaths. He left the practice of allopathy as he knew mercury and bleeding people was barbaric. When Mesmer’s ideas became the talk of Europe, he instantly knew Mesmer was onto something.
As Hahnemann and his colleagues began to develop what have always been gentle-acting, non-toxic remedies based on physics, not chemistry, the public took note and consulted homeopaths in droves. When the wives of allopaths even started to take their children to homeopaths, the war was on.
From the 1840’s onward, the public record as well as private medical notes of homeopaths in Europe, the US and in Latin America, put the “elite” mercury and bleeding allopathic doctors to shame. From a chart I found on the net for a lecture on Homeopathy in Epidemics and Pandemics, there were some interesting historical statistics spanning nearly 200 years presented, including the first real test of homeopathy in England when the cholera epidemic hit in 1854.
Key here is that the House of Commons requested a report regarding the various methods of treating the epidemic.
The first report stated that under allopathic care, the mortality rate was 59.2%. When a member of the House of Lords asked why no homeopathic figures were included, the answer was that such information would “skew the results”. It turned out the homeopathic rate was only 9%.
Another historical account of homeopathic successes in epidemics such as polio is posted on the website of the National Center for Homeopathy.
My favorite story, however, is the one told in Brass Tacks: Oral Biography of a 20th Century Physician. It’s the biography of homeopathic physician John Renner. In it, he tells the simple story about the flu epidemic of 1918 that killed millions worldwide. He describes how the three famous retail stores in Chicago faired that drew worldwide attention during that horrible time. Sears Roebuck and Marshall Field each lost several hundred employees to the epidemic while Montgomery Ward, which had a medical department staffed by homeopathic doctors, only lost eight employees.
Renner pointed out that the mortality rates among “regular” (meaning allopathic) doctors was a loss of 20-40% of their patients while homeopaths, in general, lost no more than 5-6%. News of this success was reported worldwide and a delegation from Holland actually came to Chicago to find out how Montgomery Ward did it.
The Canadian Academy of Homeopathy offers a complete report of the spectacular successes of homeopathy throughout WWI in the US and in Europe during the great flu epidemic. The irony of this story is that while our Founding Fathers had rejected the idea of establishing an official academy for scientific “elites” in favor of encouraging everyone to compete in a free market, times had changed. The powers-that-be had asked Congress to create the National Academy of Science (NAS) in 1863.
From the beginning, the hatred felt by the allopathic doctors toward homeopathy was so strong, that if an allopathic doctor was suspected of even talking with a homeopath, he risked being kicked out of the local medical society and run out of business. By the 20th Century in America, Homeopathy was declared “unscientific” and practitioners were told they needed to “surrender to science” if they intended to stay in practice. The brilliant successes of homeopathy during WWI and the flu epidemic came too late. The powers-that-be had ordered all homeopathic medical schools to close.
CHIROPRACTIC CONTRIBUTION TO SAVING LIVES DURING EPIDEMICS
I’ve talked to a number of chiropractors over the years who have told me of their personal successes during the polio epidemic of the 1950s. Chiros do not believe in the germ theory and, as a profession, have collected evidence of spectacular success in a number of epidemics starting with the flu pandemic after WWI. It was after their success with polio in the 1950s that the AMA formally organized a campaign to destroy chiropractic. Caught in the act, chiros fought back and filed a Sherman anti-trust lawsuit (Wilk et al vs the AMA et al) which was not settled until 1987.
So, that is the story about how vaccines became the centerpiece of the allopathic medical business.
It was backed by the lavish financing from the pharmaceutical industry in all corners of public life. As Adam Smith warned us in the Wealth of Nations:
“People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices.”
WHY I WROTE THIS ARTICLE
As an historian, I have always focused my research on what actually happened and who the players were in the political climate when they lived. This gave me the luxury of seeing how the flow of medical advances ended up in a total reliance on vaccinations as the only way to deal with epidemic diseases. I have provided a brief account in the discussion above, and now I’d like to give you my checklist on where I think we need to go from here.
As a society, our worldview has changed dramatically over a very short time. We are all fearful and angry about many aspects of our daily lives. Worse yet, we have millions of kids who are sick and a lot of people with vested interests trying to avoid a serious investigation into what really caused this catastrophe.
I believe that with the crisis of autism, we, as a society, are being forced to re-evaluate the whole issue of vaccines. My checklist below is based on good government, good science and good common sense.
FREE THE NEWS MEDIA SO THEY CAN DO THEIR JOB RIGHT
Ban Pharmaceutical advertising in all media aimed at the general public. According to Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Big Pharma advertising, these days, represents 70% of the income to news media. This has silenced reporters from doing their job to investigate government misdeeds which includes silence on the mayhem at the CDC, the FDA and elsewhere regarding their roles in protecting, and being controlled by Big Pharma.
CLEANING OUT THE SWAMP AT FEDERAL AGENCIES
Eliminate agency conflicts of interest that prompt the management to make decisions to protect the agency rather than act in the public good. Digging up fraud at the CDC in an effort to find the truth about the safety and efficacy of vaccines is only part of the issue. The FDA’s deplorable behavior regarding the dangers of dental amalgams is similar.
Eliminate private conflicts among those making decisions at these agencies. There are indications that personnel making many key decisions may be feathering their own nests rather than looking out for the public good.
Create an agency climate that encourages researchers and management personnel to speak out if they have issues of concern. Currently, at least at the CDC and possibly other agencies, there is an atmosphere of fear for whistleblowers to speak out.
Examine and perhaps revamp the goals of the legislation that created the revolving door of CRADA that encourages research scientists and others to rotate between the public, academic and private sectors. This appears to be an open invitation for conflicts of interest of all kinds, including influences on how Congress makes decisions. This is the medical version of what Ike Eisenhour foresaw when he warned us we could become captives of the military’s technological elite thanks to government-directed and funded research.
This is the medical spinoff of the National Academy of Science created in 1863. This academy is exactly what was created at the suggestion of Frances Bacon – to establish an “elite” fraternity of scientists to determine what is to be considered legitimate medicine. It is this group that has created and promoted the allopathic-only medical system we have today and supports suppression of all other medical ideas.
It is unrealistic to believe that inviting a few non-allopathic experts into the fraternity would be of any help. Max Planck, who discovered quantum physics, said, “A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.”
The Need For A National Academy of Medicine Based on Non-Allopathic Scientific Truths
Quantum Physicist, Max Planck pointed out that, “Both religion and natural science require a belief in God for their activities, to the former He is the starting point, and to the latter the goal of every thought process. To the former He is the foundation, to the latter, the crown of the edifice of every generalized worldview.”
Since the 1840s both here in America and Europe, the allopathic scientific community has denied the validity of the goals, practice and scientific basis of homeopathy, which was practiced by Hahnemann and his followers as Heilkunst Homeopathy, a complete system of healing based on what Mesmer was talking about – and quantum physicists can verify today.
THE CURRENT REALITY REGARDING VACCINES
In the European Union, 15 countries have NO vaccine mandates and the other 14 may have one. All EU countries do recommend vaccines and there is high compliance. None appear to promote the 69 doses of 16 vaccines from day of birth to age 18 as we do here in the states. It is important to note, also, here in America, 30 states have over 100 bills regarding repeal or protection of religious and personal belief exemptions are in legislatures right now.
Homeopathy – The Cuban Study
Confronted with an epidemic of leptospirosis in 2007, an epidemic that followed the annual hurricane season in Cuba, the Cuban Ministry of Health decided to conduct a study on homeopathy in several provinces that season. It was so successful that for the next 10 years they have used homeopathy on the entire 11 million Cubans. The disease is basically considered eradicated so they no longer administer the remedy automatically. The Cuban Ministry is now expecting similar results for dengue fever, “swine” flu, hepatitis A and conjunctivitis.
Homeopathic products can be produced in less than 2 weeks (compared to six months for vaccines)
Homeopathic products cost 2% of conventional vaccines
Homeopathic products are far more easily stored and administered than vaccines.
No vaccine medical journals would publish these findings despite the fact those conducting the leptospirosis trial had routinely published articles on prior vaccine studies.
Our Future Has Already Arrived
We are already living in a world far different than even 50 years ago. As an historian I have noticed that the discovering of quantum physics in 1918, has trickled down to a topic in an array of bestselling books for the man in the street. I’ve been enriched in my understanding of this brave new world by reading the works of Gregg Braden and Bruce Lipton.
My life has been changed radically and for the better by attending several workshops of Joe Dispenza. The idea that medicine would be forever stuck in 19th Century material science is ludicrous. The problem is a political one where unraveling the layers of regulations and freeing up the system to allow for real progress in the worldview of medicine in the 21st Century is the issue.
I often wonder what Franz Mesmer, Samuel Hahnemann or DD Palmer would say about the work of neuroscientist Joe Dispenza, a chiropractor who teaches people how to tap into the “fluid” to create miracles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3yw7LeLwYo
