Vaccination: A two Edged Sword for Both Pets and People

Let’s Take a Look at the Potential Dangers involved with Vaccination!

What actually is vaccination?

Vaccination is also referred to as Inoculation and according to McGraw-Hill Science & Technology Encyclopedia is defined as:

“The process of introducing a microorganism or suspension of microorganism into a culture medium. The medium may be (1) a solution of nutrients required by the organism or a solution of nutrients plus agar; (2) a cell suspension (tissue culture); (3) embryonated egg culture; or (4) animals, for example, rat, mouse, guinea pig, hamster, monkey, birds, or human being. When animals are used, the purpose usually is the activation of the immunological defenses against the organism. This is a form of vaccination, and quite often the two terms are used interchangeably. Both constitute a means of producing an artificial but active immunity against specific organisms, although the length of time given by such protection may vary widely with different organisms.”

There is also another way to look at and define this controversial issue offered by Craig Stellpflug, in his article for NaturalNews.com entitled, Myth Busted: Vaccinations are not Immunizations where he explains that,
http://www.naturalnews.com/035871_vaccination_immunization_myths.html
“In vaccines, an antigen is injected into the body to produce a reaction and the immune system responds in the form of antibodies, but antibody presence does not confer immunity.” Stellpflug states that, “Vaccines should never be called immunizations because that is a misnomer. Immunity and vaccinations are two different subjects altogether.”

Have you ever met an unvaccinated child or adult?

I know several quite well. I am always amazed at how bright they are, how healthy they are and how little chronic diseases they seem to suffer from. It seems to go with the territory that their moms feed them a great diet, usually organic, encourage them to practice some sport or dance type activity, raise them with companion animals, and overall lead a healthy life style, as individuals and as a family. The parents of the kids that I know are educated and have conducted some pretty thorough research and looked at the risks vs benefits pretty closely. I am not talking about children who are malnourished or impoverished as that would be an entirely different discussion. I’m just talking about kids from middle class homes and families, that I know personally and that you might have encountered, perhaps in your own neighborhood and circle of friends, if their parents dared to tell you their kids secret. Maybe they were even home schooled and seemed to think a bit outside the box. Maybe they used high quality supplements such as Moxxor, see http://www.MoxxArt.com like the baby above gets! Maybe the parents are Vegan and did not wish to have animal material injected into their children. Maybe they just object to having their kids forced to be jabbed with a syringe loaded with suspicious substances or cultured in animal products, see http://vactruth.com/2012/05/25/vaccine-dog-cells-allergy/?utm_source=The+Vaccine+Truth+Newsletter&utm_campaign=74dc3e8387-05_25_2012_dogs&utm_medium=email  that have never been thoroughly tested or proven to be safe or effective!

My first hand evidence with these unvaccinated babies, young children and young adults, and now even some of whom have babies of their own, is clearly anecdotal and the minute I open the lid to this pandora’s box the kitchen sink is thrown at me, about how wonderful vaccines are, and how many lives they save, and how insane it is to not do it, and what are my credentials to have the audacity to suggest questioning this now nearly sacred procedure! The incredible health and high IQ’s of these kids has got to be just a coincidence, right? Not! I offer in response to these inevitable skeptics; just how insane is it to push chemically induced ‘herd’ medicine and a one size fits all medical model at everyone on the planet? It’s a good idea to change the subject at that point as things always get heated and it’s a win/lose scenario one way or another!

I found an interesting Timeline that helps us put the subject of vaccination into its proper historical perspective. When we look at it in this way it seems like such a wonderful scientific advancement. It seems to make sense in many ways. See http://www.historyofvaccines.org/content/timelines/all

We learn at historyofvaccines.org that the story of vaccines did not begin with the first vaccine which seems to have always been credited to Edward Jenner. (It was indeed Jenner who observed a group of milkmaids resistance to ‘cow pox’ and it was Jenner whose use of cowpox pustules seemed to provide protection against smallpox). Although we hear this story quite often, we learn here ostensibly that the saga begins with a long history of infectious disease in humans, and in particular, with early uses of smallpox material to provide immunity to that disease.

Evidence is reported from the Timeline group, that the Chinese employed smallpox inoculation (or variolation, as such use of smallpox material was called) as early as 1,000 CE. It was practiced in Africa and Turkey as well, before it spread to Europe and the Americas.

Edward Jenner’s innovations, began with his successful 1796 use of cowpox material to create immunity to smallpox, and this quickly made the practice widespread. His method underwent medical and technological changes over the next 200 years and we have heard again and again how this eventually resulted in the eradication of smallpox (there is a dark side to Jenner’s work because his own son died of Tuberculosis, perhaps because vaccination impaired his immune system, but let’s leave that out of our discussion. I may tackle that another time).

Yes, I too know the propaganda rather well after 20 years research on this subject matter and yes my own parents (and their parents) bought it and even I bought into it when I was a young mother, ‘hook line and sinker’ as we all got the jab! I find it interesting that ‘the powers that be’ stopped giving the small pox vaccine because the side effects to it became pretty horrific and deadly.

In reviewing the Timeline above, one might wish to have been a fly on the wall and listened in on the debates amongst religious scholars vs the science guys of the day. It might have sounded something like this: “If man was created in Gods image and therefore perfect why isn’t he/she perfect without this jab?” That’s actually a good question. You’d think a babies first food, their mothers colostrum and the building of a strong immune system, by being allowed to catch childhood diseases, building immunity to them naturally, be nourished with good food, clean water and proper hygiene, would/should be all that is needed. However today, we are told a different tale and vaccination due to fear of getting sick has become so common place that there is actually a new kind of fear model circulating that involves the so-called threat of the unvaccinated child or adult!

Is there any validity to these fears about being unvaccinated?

In a recent article by Ethan Huff for Allignlife.com see http://www.alignlife.com/articles/asthma/Unvaccinated_Children_Less_Likely_to_have_Asthma_or_Allergies.html a recent survey released by vaccineinjury.info is reported, which debunks the notion that unvaccinated children are not as well off as those individuals who have been vaccinated. It seems that the unvaccinated kids are less likely to develop allergies, autoimmune disorders and neurological problems along with endocrine diseases and other illnesses that their vaccinated counterparts endure.

According to Huff, a homeopathic practitioner named Andreas Bachmair put together heath data on more than 8,000 unvaccinated children in at least 15 different countries and then compared it to the health data compiled on more than 17,400 vaccinated children in a German Study. This study was called, KiGGS – The German Health Interview and Examination Survey for Children and Adolescents.

The ages of the children involved ranged from 0 to 17 years of age, but typically were 8 years of age or younger. Huff explains that both studies used the same criteria for collecting data on these children’s health. More on this subject can be found here: http://www.alignlife.com/articles/autism/Attempt_to_Debunk_Vaccines_Link_with_Autism_Backfires.html

Huff reports that “In every single health category evaluated as part of both studies, the overall health of unvaccinated children was leaps and bounds ahead of the vaccinated children. The allergy rate among vaccinated children, for instance, was more than double the allergy rate among unvaccinated children. And worse, vaccinated children were found to be nearly eight times more prone to developing asthma or chronic Bronchitis than were unvaccinated children.”

Huff, includes in his excellent article, that another finding observed between the two groups was the category of auto immune disorder see: http://www.alignlife.com/articles/childhealth/Kids_Bacteria_Infections.html Apparently less than half of one percent of unvaccinated children were found to have developed an autoimmune disease, however roughly seven percent of vaccinated children developed one. Huff states, that according to the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), nearly 25 percent of Americans today suffer from at least one autoimmune disorder.

There were other health area’s where the unvaccinated kids fared better than the vaccinated ones and those included neurodermatitis, herpes, otitis media (common ear infections) see http://www.alignlife.com/articles/earaches/Heal_Earaches_Without_Antibiotics.html, 
hay fever, hyperactivity, scoliosis, epilepsy and seizures, migraine headaches, and thyroid disease. Huff includes, “The only category where disease rates were roughly equal between the two groups was in the category of diabetes mellitus, a disease which affects only about 0.2% of children under the age of 20.”

If you are interested, the Bachmair vaccination study, complete with thorough details and visual graphs, can be found at: http://www.vaccineinjury.info/vaccinations-in-general/health-unvaccinated-children/survey-results-illnesses.html

I would like to close with the exploration of the thought I offered above in that proposed dialogue between a clergyman and a scientist; is it not possible (and I’m only asking a hypothetical question) that we were created perfectly by a perfect creator and live in a perfect universe, as suggested in the book, ‘Hubble Reveals Creation by an Awe-Inspiring Power,’ by J. Paul Hutchins? See http://www.hubblerevealscreation.com/ What effect would/does chemical compounds, including toxic substances and heavy metals actually do to us on a quantum/micro and a macro level? If there is a God Particle within each of us which is suggested by the exploration of and search for the Higgs Boson particle,http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-16116230 what do these un-natural chemical substances do to it?

Many of you know that my passion has been helping people and their companion animals, both cats and dogs transition to a holistic lifestyle. One of the things of great concern has been with a specific vaccine site sarcoma in cats induced by certain feline vaccinations. I think we need to open our minds at long last that vaccines are not the safe procedure the media and medical establishment wishes us to believe. They come with risks and this article is very interesting in that respect, see http://vactruth.com/2012/05/23/pet-vaccinations-cancer/?utm_source=The+Vaccine+Truth+Newsletter&utm_campaign=dfe88ac3e4-05_23_2012_Pets&utm_medium=email

This article further shares that: “One demographic in U.S. society that does not embrace vaccinations, the Amish, have remarkable statistics that we need to consider further, e.g., the autism rate is one in 15,000! Plus, their children, who usually work the farms in some way virtually have no allergies.
It goes on to offer that Dr. Paul G. King, PhD, offers the following information that needs to be acknowledged and applauded:..’ non-mercury exposed Amish children (those who were not vaccinated or did not live near a coal-fired power plant), the number with “autism” was “0″ zero. And in Dr. Eisenstein’s practice in Chicago, IL called The Home First children who are all breastfed and not vaccinated, there were reportedly NO cases of autism and only 1 child with asthma in a population in excess of 30,000 [children]. But all of these are only considered “anecdotal” reports that the CDC dismissed instead of even trying to confirm their validity (for obvious reasons).

For updates on issues surrounding vaccination controversies like these which I have shared, I highly recommend the vactruth.com site which offers some alternative views which you won’t see covered in mainstream media. I found the posting regarding potential liver damage to also be of special interest. http://vactruth.com/2012/05/15/vaccines-damaging-liver/?utm_source=The+Vaccine+Truth+Newsletter&utm_campaign=42c1b6a25a-05_15_2012_liver&utm_medium=email

In every discussion on vaccination the subject of vaccines eradicating Polio and paralysis usually comes up because we don’t see children in iron lungs any more but we do have a new disease similar to it with a different name and the children go on ventilators instead, but this video offers a different slant on that subject as well http://www.brasschecktv.com/videos/vaccines-1/cases-of-non-polio-paralysis-rise-after-polio-vaccination-drives.html You can read more about this breaking news here: http://www.naturalnews.com/035627_polio_vaccines_paralysis_India.html#ixzz1vgnIfxgG

Have we truly opened Pandora’s Box when we inject these foreign substances directly into the bodies of living things? Vaccines are just the tip of the iceberg of the epigenetic consequences we humans have created for our future generations!

Astrology for Cats! Happy Birthday Gemini!

The Gemini Cat

The Gemini Cat

by Celeste Yarnall, Ph.D Artwork by Nazim Artist http://www.NazimArtist.com

With the Gemini Cat I am going to share with my CelestialMusingsblog followers a series of all 12 of the Astrological signs and their special affinity for our cats.  These blogs will apply equally well for dogs!

With each edition a bit of astrology background will be included. Whilst I am not an official astrologer, I think we can have fun with this topic and learn more about the personalities of our beloved cats that share our homes and our hearts.

My business, ‘Celestial Pets’ http://www.CelestialPets.com is devoted to our unique Art of Wellness concept which extends exponentially to all living things in our lives and of course our companion animals.

Please do feel free to contact us through our Celestial Pets website for introductory help and guidance with our recipes, our supplements and holistic modalities. Rest assured no purchase is required. Our desire is to be of value in a pay it forward sense. You might also wish to explore my books, Holistic Cat Care, co authored by Jean Hofve, DVM and my dog book entitled Natural Dog Care. Both are available at my website or on Amazon.com.

Let’s explore Astrology for Cats!

Perhaps you already use a bit of astrology to chart your daily life right now, or just enjoy taking a peak at your daily horoscope on line or in a publication, I think we all do this from time to time.  However it is certainly not necessary to do much more than that to have fun with Astrology for Cats. Of course many choose to study it in depth and I truly take my hat off to these folks at his a very complex study to say the least. In the spirit of simply delving into the personalty traits of our cats and dogs too I am going to present in order as they come up on our calendars, the 12 sun signs of the zodiac and the corresponding personality traits as they apply to us, our cats, and the special relationship we have with them.

For hundreds of years, we’ve known that the seasons result from changes in the distance and angle of the sun’s rays relative to the Earth, and that the phases of the moon affect the tides, the planting of crops, and of course the hormonal cycles of women.  It isn’t a big leap to suppose these variables affect all living things, including our cats.

The only way we can truly assist our cats in the healing and cleansing of their own bodies is to look for clues in their symptomatic picture that can help guide us to appropriate natural remedies or methods of healing.  The more aware we become of our cat companions traits and actions, the better equipped we’ll be to help them on every level, including their unique body, mind and spiritual aspects.  In ancient times they referred to this study much more seriously than most do today. They had a name for it and that was ‘Astromedicine.’  You can work with astrology on whatever level you feel comfortable or not at all.

We are all unique and important in both the macro and micro cosmos! 

Considering that beyond what our cat companions, genetic makeup imparts, the personalities among kittens in a litter tend to be quite similar, even when taking into consideration differences in sex and pecking order.  Perhaps this is because they are born close together in time and usually share the same sun sign and several other planetary positions.

Though the serious astrological practitioner would develop a natal horoscope based on the exact time and place of the cat’s birth, this isn’t necessary for our purposes. The care, feeding, and spiritual well-being of our cats can benefit enormously if we simply learn about their astrological archetype. If you don’t know your cat’s birthday or exact age, you could choose a sun sign to celebrate the day you adopted her or the sign closest to her in personality  traits. I have previously explored each sign on my Care2 Celestial Musings blog. They are all archived here  at the link below if you would like to jump ahead or behind Gemini astrologically, should you wish to explore the other signs. I have now covered them all and this link will take you ahead to the Cancer Cat but again you will find them all listed here, as well.

Throughout the ages, as far back as the Sumerians or possibly earlier, people have applied astrological principles to every aspect of their physical and spiritual lives. In much the same way, you can explore these same 12 sun signs to help you augment your relationship with your cat.

Note: A gender prnoun is used for each sign because each Astrological sign is assigned a gender. I throughout this series  to the particular cat for each sign in a masculine or feminine tense. This is just how it has been done through the ages. For example I am a LEO and you will always see Leo referred to with a masculine tense. Every other sign in the 12 signs will have a gender which alternate every month.

Right now we are entering the sign of Gemini so let’s explore the personality of The Gemini Cat which will be referred to by the gender, ‘he.’

GEMINI CATS (THE TWINS): MAY 21–JUNE 21

  • Cardinal element: AIR
  • Ruling planet: MERCURY
  • Earth color: ORANGE
  • Astral colors: RED, WHITE, BLUE
  • Gems: BERYL, AQUAMARINE, DARK BLUE STONES
  • Mineral element: QUICKSILVER (MERCURY)

GEMINI is governed by the planet Mercury. The nervous system, as well as the respiratory system, glands, fibers and tissues, shoulders, paws, and toes are all governed by this sign. An elementary quality of wet heat is associated with Gemini.

Gemini is male and female, extrovert and introvert, aggressive and passive—all rolled into one cat. This animal is a lesson in duality, giving you a full range of emotions and physical attributes. He’ll give you a nip asking you to pay attention, then she’ll turn around and lick the same spot. He/she, she/he, back and forth. You may think it’s typical feline behavior, but no, it’s just Gemini.

A Gemini will never be your very own lap cat; this one belongs to the world. When you leave Gemini with the house sitter, you may fret that he’ll die without you. But he’s happily bonding with the sitter just in case you don’t come back, and if you don’t, he’ll cozy up to the real estate broker, too. It’s not that he’s fickle; just as the scorpion’s nature is to sting, Gemini’s is to be all things to all creatures. Just pretend you’re as special to him as he makes you feel.

The Gemini cat is a multifaceted, creative cat—poetry in motion. No doubt, he’ll create something, even if it’s havoc.

He’s ruled by Mercury, the winged-footed Greek god, so prepare to fly with him as if he were a catbird. However, he can slip through your fingers like quicksilver. Gemini is an air sign and air must circulate freely, so he will want the run of the house.

Gemini won’t want to sit still for long though, since he’s always in conflict. Just watch that tail swish to and fro. He’ll rarely finish anything, including dinner. Instead, he’ll be off making mischief somewhere.

Gemini is quick. A bird or mouse doesn’t have a chance. He’d like to eat it, but his twin likes to taunt and play with it first—hunger and patience at odds. Could we call him fidgety? No, everyone else is slow. Just let him be, as he changes so fast all his little quirks are here and gone in an instant. His mind sifts through so much so fast that not even the most avid nonverbal communication expert can get it all.

Do you have a Gemini Cat? If so, how does ‘he’ stack up to our model here?
