The Flu Shot in Pregnancy

By | Immunization

I was recently interviewed by Courtney Ingham, a doula and childbirth educator at Sacred Blessing Services. We discussed issues associated with the flu shot specifically during pregnancy. I get a lot of questions from concerned pregnant mothers regarding their doctor’s advisement of getting the flu shot. I was happy to talk to Courtney about many of these concerns and share with her studies that dispel the myths regarding the safety of the flu shot in pregnancy.

Check out my recent interview with childbirth ed instructor, Courtney Ingham, by clicking this picture.

Some of the other topics we addressed were:

-Chronic inflammatory issues in children
-How to help move your child out of an inflammatory response
-Studies regarding miscarriage associated with the flu vaccine
-Risks associated with getting the flu while pregnant
-What symptoms of the flu you want to mitigate during pregnancy and how to do that with homeopathy
-What your doctor may not be telling you about the flu and how it can be spread
-My homeopathic recommendations for avoiding the flu

Does Homeoprophylaxis Produce Antibody Titers?

By | Immunization

So many great questions are being generated in my new Facebook community Choosing Real Immunity!

One in particular that I am often asked is, “Does Homeoprophylaxis (HP) Produce Antibody Titers?”

In a recent live, I offered a thorough answer to this question. I start by discussing the difference between Allopathic medicine, which attempts to manipulate and eliminate symptoms, and Homeopathic medicine, which respects symptoms as they indicate to us the status of the vital force.

I move on to share shocking information about when scientists first discovered antibodies. You’ll be surprised at how recently this discovery was made!

If you haven’t yet watched my first film: A Quest for Real Immunity, you’ll want to stream it as soon as possible for a more in-depth review of the functions of the immune system. I interview health several professionals who discuss immunity.

In fact, the immunologist whom I interview, Tetyana Obukhanych, recently shared a presentation on the risks and benefits of viral infections that I highly recommend you check out here:  http://www.tetyanaobukhanych.com/nif.html

Another topic I cover in my live is a review the two arms of the immune system: Th1, the innate arm, also known as the cellular arm; and Th2, humoral arm, known as the antibody producing arm. Both arms are essential, of course, however, vaccines essentially have “skewed” the immune system, by encouraging and emphasizing the Th2 arm which has lead to several inflammatory diseases.

I go on to differentiate HP and vaccines using two important terms:

Efficacy: What vaccines focus on, measured in antibodies.
There are some major problems with this theory, especially important to note is that illness is not really related to how many (if any) antibodies a person makes, as some are people are high-responders, some are low-responders and some are non-responders.

Effectiveness: What HP focuses on. What do the studies with millions of people show us about disease contraction? We see there is effectiveness and that it is around 90%. HP does not promise efficacy because efficacy (antibodies) are not considered the gold standard: The goal is real world effectiveness.

Finally, I round things up by giving my listeners the bottom line: “Health is adaptation, it is not manipulation, we can’t make the human body do what we want it to do. Adaptation is what gives us health.”
