Honoring Those Who Sacrificed and Suffered this Memorial Day and Our Every-Day Hero Parents
Let us pause and give tribute and honor to all who have suffered, sacrificed and given their lives for their country in military service. Whether we agree or disagree with the politics of the time, they have shown bravery and character worthy of our respect.
As a pediatrician caring for more health challenged children than ever before, I would like to also honor the bravery and character and courage of the parents and children who suffer from chronic conditions like autism, diabetes, cancer, asthma, and a long list of others. For some families, it is a life-long battle to make the best of a difficult situation.
The battle that lies ahead for the health of your children and generations to come is not on a foreign land, not going to be won by soldiers, special ops, or military might, but will be fought right here at home against a system that is driven by profits at the expense of your health.
I will outline three major battles that each and every one of us should consider.
- Vaccines. They are important. They are a medical procedure that you should consider one at a time to see if that vaccine makes sense for your child. We must fight against the government and CDC and big pharma push to have vaccines mandated. You see, there is confusion. People are misled by the ideas that polio and measles and pertussis epidemics will return if we don’t give every child every vaccine per CDC schedule. I can assure you, the infant whose mother does not have Hepatitis B, puts no-one at risk by waiting to get that shot when a teenager and when it makes sense to do so. In fact those babies getting the 3 shot series for Hepatitis B are the ones who may some day put your child at risk as they will no longer have the protection when they need it (sexually active) and thus it is the infants who are vaccinated who are a potential danger to society, not those who intelligently wait. Now parents who gave the Hepatitis B and it’s 250 micrograms of toxic aluminum, please don’t beat yourselves up. You did what you were told and what you thought was best at the time. You can boost the immunity later if that becomes a need. You did as I did with my kids and followed the CDC recommendations. THEY MUST BE CHANGED. Most important is that we preserve the right for informed consent, the right to choose what is done to our bodies. We cannot have our government passing laws that mandate a one size fits all vaccine schedule that is not only dangerous but is not scientifically sound. We must fight for medical freedom.
- GMO and pesticides/herbicides. Our chronic diseases and illness in this country is directly related to the magnitude of toxic exposures we are experiencing. We have reached a tipping point. For those most vulnerable, the damage can happen in the womb. The uterus shunts nutrients and toxins. You will hear that someone has this or that disease or condition and that it’s genetic or congenital because it happened before birth. Well, the toxicity happened before birth, in most cases that’s all. Monsanto wants to control our food. They, (a chemical company) produce Round-Up and other pesticides and herbicides, and figured if they make and control the seeds that can tolerate their product and convince or then force farmers to use their product, then they control our food and hence the profit from our most vital commodity. Today, in the USA, about 90% of soy and corn grown here is GMO, Round-Up sprayed, and contaminated. I write this from Maui where the island just passed a law banning the use of Round-Up and GMO crops but guess what? Monsanto is suing to keep on polluting one of earth’s paradises. We must fight to remove toxins from our food supply and like Europe and so many other countries, we must ban GMO crops that necessitate the use of pesticides or herbicides.
- Take control of your health through healthful living (eat organic and avoid processed foods, drink filtered water, exercise and avoid pharmaceuticals and doctors unless absolutely necessary). OK that’s it, this guy is crazy! What is a doctor doing telling us to stay away from doctors? Medicine in the USA, yes my beloved country, has gone over the deep end in most cases. We are indeed a bunch of monkeys who are trained to diagnose and then write a prescription. We are likely to recommend a pharmaceutical product first (be it a vaccine or an antibiotic) before we allow the body to heal and before we promote the natural remedies that would support such healing. Have we forgotten how wonderfully made we are? Question every product your doctor recommends. Ask about side effects and alternatives and what would happen if you did nothing? You are in charge of your health and wellness.
My heroes are the parents of children with severe chronic conditions. My heart goes out to you. Your bravery and character surpasses all others.
Thank-you for allowing me to be a part of your journey. From my brave family who finally had to say goodbye to a most wonderful 20 year old who fought all his life with a chronic and ultimately fatal disease, to my hundreds of parents who live daily with autistic children who require round-the-clock care and support. Your love and courage brings tears to my eyes and fills my heart.
Blessings this Memorial Day.
