Whooping Cough

Whooping Cough, or Pertussis, used to be a killer disease in the 19th Century. However, with better living standards, improved diet, better housing, the disease declined throughout the 20th century. Much of the credit for this decline has been wrongly claimed and attributed to conventional vaccine treatment, but the decline in Whooping Cough was happening long before the vaccine, and the decline continued, unchanged and unaffected, after the vaccine was introduced.

Now, however, in the 21st century there are signs that it is now re-emerging.

Indeed, the re-emergence of Pertussis has taken place mainly in countries where conventional vaccine treatment (usually the DPT vaccine) has been most evident, notably in the USA and Britain. Yet all the conventional medical establishment seems able or willing to do, when faced by these new outbreaks, is to urge people to have the vaccination - even pregnant women it would appear! But before pregnant women, or indeed anyone else, does so we should examine the evidence first - particularly the evidence that our doctors, ConMed generally, and even, sadly, our mainstream media, will almost certainly not tell us about.

First, it is now apparent that those being affected by the new outbreaks of Whooping Cough are those who have already been vaccinated. Those of us who have not been vaccinated appear not to be affected. See these links for more information on this.

Indeed, it has been shown that vaccinated children account for some 90% of those getting Whooping Cough in these recent epidemics. In other words, we are all safer from the disease if we don't accept conventional vaccine treatment!

What this clearly shows is that the vaccine is not working.

It has probably never worked, as I have already noted that the 'decline' in Whooping Cough cases was happening for nearly one hundred years before the vaccine was introduced.

Yet it would appear that another story is beginning to emerge too. The Whooping Cough strain giving rise to the new epidemics, after years of suppression through the DPT vaccine (and its successor, the so-called 5-in-1 vaccine, has changed. And it is now more virulent, more dangerous than every it was before.

So Whooping Cough is now killing people again. Even BBC News appears willing to admit this, although as usual they fail to inform their viewers, listeners and readers the full story about the disease, and the problems created by conventional medical vaccnine treatment.

So the failure of conventional vaccines is not just that they do not work. They actually make the problem worse. 

Just as antibiotic drugs in recent years have created numerous deadly 'superbugs' they can no longer deal with, vaccines are getting progressively less effective, and leaving us with more deadly strains of the disease.

In other words, the war being waged on disease is being lost, conventional, drug-based medicine is failing.

So desperate is the conventional medical establishment becoming, there has even been an admission that vaccine treatment has failed! failure admitted: Whooping cough outbreaks higher among children already vaccinated

So what should we do if we contract Whooping Cough?

First, we should not get embroiled in the panic of conventional medicine. Whooping Cough can be a killer disease for people who are living in poverty, with a poor diet, and inadequate housing conditions. But it is not usually a disease that kills healthy, fit individuals. I remember my mother being involved in parties for young children during outbreaks of childhood diseases, including Whooping Cough. The basis on which parents used to do this was that disease is usually experienced in a minor form, and contracting the disease naturally provides a more 'natural' immunity.

Yet when someone does contract the disease, there are lots of ways to limited its impact, and speed recovery. Even something as simple as Vitamin C is known to be helpful.

But Homeopathy, above all, is a therapy that deals calmly, effectively and safely with Whooping Cough (as it does for other childhood diseases). Reading this, and the following articles will tell you why, and they also mention a number of remedies that have been successfully used for treating this illness for over 200 years now.

Indeed, as this article says, Homeopathy treats Whooping cough dramatically more effectively than conventional, drug-based medicine.

All the dangers of the DPT and '5-in-1' vaccines have not been considered here. But they have been known for many decades. The dangers of the DPT vaccine, in particular, has been know for many decades now. Harris L Coulter, and Barbara Loe Fisher wrote their book "A Shot in the Dark. Why the P in the DPT vaccination may be hazardous to your child's health" over 20 years ago, in 1991. The 'P' stands for Pertussin!

The conventional medical establishment, however, continues to ignore this, and present us with vaccines they continue to tell us are safe and effective.

You should make your own judgement on this, after considering the evidence.

FACs. Fetal Anti-Convulsant Syndrome. A disease created by Big Pharma drugs?

Some years ago, I came across a family with two children suffering from this syndrome. This 'new' illness has affected 37,500 children in Britain, according to the British Epilepsy Association. FACS produces a range of neural, behavioural, and physical disorders, and can include conditions such as cleft palate and spina bifida, learning difficulties, behavioural problems and abnormalities in movement, speech, vision and hearing.

So what is FACS, and where does it come from? 
Yet another new, strange and rare disease with no known cause? Well, not really, the cause is well known. 

These children were damaged in the womb when the mother had taken anti-convulsant drugs, such as Epilim and Carbamazepine.

So FACS is, in fact, another conventional medical 'mistake', another disaster for parents and families where the 'science' of drug testing and drug regulation has proven to be no safeguard to public safety. At the time of writing, this condition has had little publicity, but this, in itself, is something that should be a matter of public concern. 

  1. *Why are we not being told about such disease? 
  2. *What is preventing this information becoming more widely known?

Janet Williams, who has two sons affected by FACS, founded the Organisation for Anti-Convulsant Syndrome (OACS). She says:
          "We want to hear from any family with a child with problems whose mother took any anti-epileptic drug in pregnancy".
She goes on to say that many of these children have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). What do the drug companies say about it? Well, the usual denials.
* Anti-epileptic drugs are vital to the health of people with epilepsy, who should not stop taking them without consulting their doctor (so it is a balancing act again, weighing up the 'benefits' and the 'risks' of taking drugs).

Health authorities regularly routinely and continually review the safety of all licensed medications (including, presumably, these drugs, so no comfort for the children or their parents who suffer from FACS).

That warnings were given about valproate (the basic ingredient of epileptic drugs) in respect of possible effects in children born to mothers taking the product during pregnancy, and that "this information was approved by the regulatory authorities as consistent with current scientific knowledge" (which suggests that the dangers of the drugs were known to medical authorities, but they were prescribed to patients anyway).

Why Homeopathy?

Most people, when they are unwell, go to see their NHS GP. In most other countries, patients usually see a conventionally trained doctor. The outcome is that usually they leave the surgery or hospital with conventional treatment, usually pharmaceutical drugs.

Rarely, if ever, are they told about alternative medical treatments, like Homeopathy, and how these might treat their illness. Indeed, conventional doctors are not qualified to give such advice. They are trained in their discipline alone, although many will seek to dissuade patients from having anything other the conventional medical treatment.

Yet more and more people, thoughout the world, are turning to alternative therapies, such as Homeopathy.

Often, perhaps too often, the reason for doing so is negative. Patients have found out that pharmaceutical don't work, or that they pose dangers, side-effects that are actually new diseases. Often people just want to avoid it conventional medical treatment, often at any cost.

It is only later that they discover the benefits of their decision - that Alternative Medical Therapies, like Homeopathy, are far more effective, far safer, and much less expensive medical therapies.

Yet, the choice of Alternative Therapies, especially Homeopathy is, and should be, a positive choice for patients. If more people were more aware of the dangers of Conventional Medicine, and more people were aware of the benefits of Homeopathy in the treatment of all illnesses, they would be better able to make an 'informed' choice about the medical therapy they wish to use for their illness or condition.

This is the purpose of my new website, Why Homeopathy?

This website looks at individual illnesses and diseases, and compares Conventional Medical treatment with Homeopathic treatment. It has arisen from three factors:

1. In line with Government's policy on 'Patient Choice', "No decision about me without me", there are a growing number of people, and patients, who want to choose the medical therapy they prefer.

2. The failure of the NHS to provide comparative medical information of this kind, and the almost total domination of the Conventional Medical Establishment within the NHS, means that it is very difficult to obtain this information.

3. The growing misinformation campaign, and the attacks being made on Homeopathy by members of the Conventional Medical Establishment. This ranges from Homeopaths being called 'witches' by the British Medical Association, and the oft-repeated mantra of Homeopathy Denialists, in the pay of Big Pharma drug companies, that 'there is no evidence' for Homeopathy.

The new 'Why Homeopathy?' website can be found here, and the number of illness covered is increasing gradually.
