Your Immune System’s Warfare Tactics

I’m actually considering calling this post “Killing Me Softly”.  It’s principally about steroid side effects, but I’m not drawing attention to just these drugs.

[credit: bestgamewallpapers] [This post first published at steemit.]

Your Immune System’s Warfare Tactics.

I visualize our immune system like a series of defensive concentric walls set up around a citadel:

The Citadel:
Our immune system will prioritize the protection of our mind and brain [‘the citadel’] above all else.  Throughout human history we’d die rapidly without our sanity to assist us in recognizing danger, keeping safe and finding the resources we need to survive.

The City Walls:
Next, our immune system prioritizes the protection of the singular organs.  We don’t have a spare heart or liver etc.

After this, we are down to the areas of the body or double organs that can be compromised to some extent and for some time without instant death. We can limp along with a part of these systems working, or one of these duplicated organs.

Penultimately, we are down to the joints & muscles.  Death will come slower [nowadays not really at all] with a joint or muscular problem.  It has to get pretty severe.

Finally, A skin problem like eczema or mucous membrane problem isn’t really going to impede your survival much at all [survival, not comfort is your body’s priority!]  You may succumb to infection but it is likely your immune system is pretty strong if you can keep your ill health at the skin level and protect the deeper organs and inner citadel.  You’ll burn a fever and fight an infection.

 

Your body is always using its UTMOST resources to push the imbalance out to the furthest point from the inner citadel.  As it is weakened, the defenses fall and the immune system is forced to allow more disorder to enter the higher organs and the mental and emotional spheres.

 


Steroid Side Effects:
Many Medicines Help You Lose the Fight.

Read the side effects of steroid meds [indeed any meds].  You’ll get some idea of the kinds of conditions you can lapse into.
Your predispositions dictate what you’ll get from that list of side effects.
That’s why a drug doesn’t always cause the same problem in everyone.

People have different predispositions to problems in different systems and organs when their symptoms are suppressed with steroids. Your family medical history can give you hints as to what to expect, and if you have a family predisposition to mental health problems we know that your walls tumble fast.

Side effects are signs you are losing the fight.  Sometimes they last and sometimes you are strong enough to detox and throw them off.

Let me tell you a story …

ECZEMA –> ASTHMA –> MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS

Maybe you got an eczema eruption at 2 months like the boy I talk about in this case [shortly after vaccinations is the most common time]. You use some steroid creams and some more vaccinations are scheduled and ear infections or tonsillitis start.   You continue your hydrocortisone cream, have a few courses of antibiotics and gradually your eczema improves.

Now you see that your colds start to involve some sinus or chest troubles.  Maybe bronchitis troubles you some [more antibiotics] and you’ve got some tenacious catarrh.  You get some ear tubes fitted.  You are also diagnosed with asthma [you’ve likely reached about age 5 by now, depends on how quickly your walls fall].  [Very common pattern in vaccinated children!]

Now you have increasingly unmanageable asthma [but your eczema is ‘cured’ or you have ‘grown out of it’].  It can get impossibly hard for people to manage this level of asthma without steroids [never withdraw them at this stage unless your doctor advises it] … so you get more steroids [inhaled and/or syrup].  You still get infections on your chest and need more antibiotics.
Gradually, with the steroids and antibiotics, your infections stop. You ‘grew out of them’.

If you successfully control asthma with these steroid meds you’ll likely begin to develop behaviour problems like aggression and/or anxiety.  Progressively, with continued steroid treatment, you may descend into ADD, ADHD, ASD and even levels of psychosis [psychosis is one of the side effects noted with steroid meds]. Gradually you’ve been gathering little hints of these mental health problems, and now you are truly at diagnosis point.  The likelihood is you are otherwise pretty ‘well’ nowadays. You no longer get repeat infections and you’ve not had a fever for some time, maybe years since you were 5 or 6.
School is getting pretty tough and you are gonna need your diagnosis to get the support you need.

READING YOUR MEDICAL JOURNEY

When a homeopath listens to your history and hears these events in order, they can track the stages at which your immune system lost stages of the battle and the crucial events that breached your defenses.    This is my first job when I meet you, to track these events and stages and give you an assessment of your level of health and a prognosis for recovery.

When we treat these mental health problems with homeopathy asthma resurfaces. That’s proof that it was never ‘cured’ or ‘grown out of’.  It was just SUPERSEDED by a deeper illness.  Allopathic medicine generally works this way, by replacing one disease with a deeper disease.

The modern child’s development and life outcomes are frequently severely compromised by these medical interventions.

Homeopathy can offer a fairly rapid cure for eczema in the first place.
Curing the results of suppression is a long-term undertaking.

Homeopathy needs to be integrated into general medical practice if we are not going to see the battle lost in most people’s lives.  Each generation is being born with more predispositions and weaker immunity.
I think we are looking at the health equivalent of ‘Peak Oil’ or global warming.

It’s unlikely homeopathy will be integrated, in part because none of us understand how it works [that doesn’t stop the medical folk!] and it is a big threat to Big Pharma’s shareholders.
Your personal option is to opt out of the conventional health system as far as you can.  Keep your family healthy and improve their health with homeopathic treatment.  Make it a priority.

Graduating Elementary against the odds: Autism Recovery

Here’s a great story of autism recovery.

I just watched a video of one of my patients graduating elementary school.  The audience CHEERED loudly when he went onto the stage to collect his graduation certificate.  That cheer was very much deserved.  He has come a LONG way to graduate and he wasn’t dealt an easy hand.   His mum sent me the video as she is thrilled with what homeopathy has been able to help her son to achieve.

“He now wakes on time for school at same time. He’s down by 6.40am. He’s perfectly on time.
Seeing good improvements. Meeting at the school –> Going to middle school this year! They had lots of good things to tell. Earlier he used to be distracted and talk to people asking the same questions over and over though he knew the answers. He is polite but gets on with his own things. Good improvement in speech. Diversified forms of sentence. Using more words spontaneously, very naturally. It is good and remarkable improvement.”

Methylphenidate Alternative for ADHD

Methylphenidate Alternative for ADHD

 

You’d like an alternative to Methylphenidate & to avoid the side effects of ADHD drugs like methylphenidate & Guanfacine.  You’d like to treat ADHD naturally? Read about William (age 10) and how we enabled him to come off methylphenidate, recover from ADHD & see improvements in his autism too.

Some of the side effects William developed when he began to take methylphenidate were anxiety and severe depressive episodes leading to suicidal thoughts. His behaviour was easier but he was desperately unhappy. He was suffering with painful, extreme ticks, strong impulsivity and self loathing. His mum was afraid for him and sought out homeopathy as an answer.

ADHD: Recovery After Methylphenidate Side Effects

William hated seeing doctors & consultants. When he first came to me (Nov 2015) he was strongly reluctant. He is also high functioning and I think he thought me a bear of little brains! I was able to observe him, but mostly I listened to his mum recount his story and answer my questions. Otherwise I didn’t demand anything from him. I work with many children with anxiety, trauma & behavioural problems and my usual approach is to work with a parent until the child comes forward in their own time & way. The parent and/or child have the alternative to skype consult, and I don’t make a requirement for the child to be present.
I selected a homeopathic remedy for William, which had profound results. The painful ticks, anxiety and suicidal feelings decreased rapidly. Gradually William’s ADHD symptoms improved and it was possible to begin to reduce the methylphenidate. Then the improvements enabled a trial coming off medication. During this stage his symptoms appeared to increase as the suppressive medication was stopped & his body adjusted. I’d told him to expect this and he would see this improve soon.  When he came to me in June 2016, he walked in with a bag of presents and was chatty and happy. His ADHD consultant had signed him off altogether!

William’s treatment took 1 homeopathic remedy (tare hisp), in 2 different potencies (30c and 200c) and was completed in 7 months.
What’s more, William’s mum has written to me on a number of occasions about other improvements she is still seeing. He is beginning to be able to do things he was unable to do before, due to improvements in empathy & self control. The most pleasing improvement she mentioned is in his ability to relate to his father and his brother. Family life and life for William is greatly improving in so many ways.   He has a really bright future ahead of him.

Natural Autism Treatment: Evan’s Case

Natural autism treatment: Read Evan's story. Click To Tweet

“The world is a looking-glass, and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face. Frown at it, and it will in turn look sourly upon you; laugh at it and with it, and it is a jolly kind companion; and so let all young persons take their choice.”

– William Makepeace Thackeray

Evan was lurching from one painful reaction to another, needing the world around him to be finely tuned to buffer him from the world’s unpredictability, loudness, and vibrancy. Not all can take their choice as the poem suggests.

Evan has [diagnosed] autism since a poor reaction to a series of immunisations.  It’s hard for him to connect, to live with his small sister without hurting her, without small frustrations leading to large emotional meltdowns.

Connecting with the world is painful. Read Evan's story ... Click To Tweet

He’s having natural autism treatment via homeopathy. I’ve just followed up with his mum.  She tells me the following, remarkable stories:

We were in the playground. Evan asked me to stop his swing.  He was watching a child who’s shoe had fallen off and who’s parents were ignoring his distress and he wanted to go return the shoe to the boy’s foot.

Evan asked to bring his bag of favourite toys to the group so he could share them.  Other children were running around, throwing his toys and a girl came next to him and let out a loud scream.  He was un-phased and refused his ear defenders! He had a great time! He’s making friends.

The anecdotes, examples, and absolute joy kept coming.

Homeopathy has enabled him to cope with the roller-coaster of environmental stimuli, children’s interactions, his sister.

It is a remarkable change for him, particularly in the past 2 months since his last remedy (in this case phos 30c).  This is the culmination of natural autism treatment through simple, classical homeopathy, which we’ve been doing with Evan since January 2016.

His happy mum is working on some testimonial videos … which I will post when she’s ready. 🙂

4 Great ways to rapidly improve depression & anxiety Click To Tweet

1)  Homeopathy For Depression & Anxiety:  

  1. Homeopathy can give you fast relief from depression & anxiety (see my testimonials).
  2. With no side-effects!   Let me repeat:  NO SIDE-EFFECTS!
  3. It is cost effective treatment, without years of paying for prescriptions.
  4. It is EFFECTIVE.  Depression & anxiety are effectiveness gaps for GPs.   They are usually the first problems to be cured during a homeopathic treatment, so don’t delay.  
  5. Homeopathic treatment for depression, anxiety & OCD pays for itself in fewer sick days & better productivity.

Depression, Anxiety & OCD: 4 Rapid fixes


Depression & Anxiety Treatments that can be useful alongside homeopathic treatment: 

2) “The Work” by Byron Katie

is a rapid & simple form of ‘cognitive-behaviour’ type therapy. You can access it free hereThere are lots of videos showing people overcoming feeling and thoughts that cause depression & anxiety.  

and/or:

3)  “The Feeling Good Book

depression anxiety ocd 4 rapid fixes

a cognitive-behaviour therapy course by David Burns.  

Cognitive behaviour therapy can help with:

  • perfectionism,
  • procrastination,
  • self-hatred, 
  • other self-defeating behaviours, which cause depression & anxiety.

Afterwards it’s really difficult to go back to where you were.  You can no-longer quite take the negative thoughts seriously because you can see through them.  It short circuits what I call “Shame spirals” that lead to depression & anxiety; those self-beating sessions that deteriorate into some of the symptoms of depression & anxiety: misery, self harm & angry outbursts.

4)  Meditation.  

The benefits for depression & anxiety of taking at least short moments to be quiet and peaceful are obvious. Tiny moments, practiced until they can join up into longer moments.  Even when things feel pretty terrible, it seems to be spookily peaceful in there.
There is a worldwide organization/community called Balanced View that teaches you to take ‘short moments’ to discover that you can ‘rest’ with the negative thoughts.  For those who want community for healing … this may be for you. 


Homeopathy [and the above books] helped me beat depression & anxiety.  It’s one of the main reasons I became a homeopath and focus on depression & anxiety in my practice.

Homeopathy is a 200 year old system of holistic medicine that treats you as a whole person; your physical, emotional and mental elements.  It is used by 6 million people in the UK, for many types of health problem, not just depression & anxiety.

It’s not necessary to take suppressive drugs with sometimes awful, long term side effects, like loss of emotion, drowsiness, etc, which themselves impact on your life.

Don’t wait.  There’s nothing to lose in trying homeopathy for depression & anxiety.

About time!
It’s very concerning that vaccinations are classed as interventions rather than pharmaceutical products and thus not tested and studied to the same degree.

The outcomes of this study could be massive for governments and yet only a tiny fraction as catastrophic as the outcomes have been for people now living with vaccine injuries of this sort and others.

Introduce one food at a time.

In the UK most babies will have had the 5-in-1 (DTaP/IPV/Hib) vaccine 3 times by the time they are beginning to wean onto solid food (along with a cocktail of other vaccinations given simultaneously).  How anyone hopes to establish which vaccine had which effect, I don’t know.  Also, being vaccinated this many times this early in life leaves it pretty much impossible for a parent to say whether there was a change or whether a baby was born with issues just waiting to present themselves.

The NHS information for parents says these vaccines are efficient, but not how efficient.

Also:

“The 5-in-1 vaccine is very safe. It’s inactivated which means it doesn’t contain any live organisms so there is no risk of your baby catching the diseases against which it protects.”

Yet we also read regarding pertussis (whooping cough) that

“The current study goes a step further and suggests that people who get the newer vaccine may still become infected and spread the germ.”  (link)

Meanwhile, here is a great resource for diagnosing whooping cough and effectively treating it with homeopathy.  The same website has pages for other ‘childhood’ diseases.

If in doubt, consult a homeopath.

FOUND! COMPLEX LINK BETWEEN AUTISM DISORDER & SPECIFIC VACCINES

 

CONTAMINATION OF VACCINES WITH HUMAN FOETAL CELL FRAGMENTS:
The research I’m citing calls for safer production methods for vaccines.  It is not anti-vaccination research.  This research establishes a STRONG correlation between Autism Disorder and specific vaccines.
(I do have concerns about vaccines and vaccination. Contaminants are one of the reasons for my concerns.)

Research by Deisher et al, published [Sept 2014] in the Journal of Public Health and Epidemiology, shows strong correlation between noted ‘change points’ (rises) in numbers of cases of Autistic Disorder and the introduction of specific childhood vaccines cultured on human foetal cells, rather than on animal cells. This correlation stands strong across the 4 vaccinating nations studied.

  • Vaccines implicated by the study: MMRII, Varicella and Hepatitis A vaccines.  (Other, more recent vaccinations cultured on human foetal cells are implicated also, but were introduced too recently to be included).
  • Nations in the study: The United States, Western Australia, United Kingdom and Denmark.

The study also established that changes in diagnostic criteria would be more likely to show a reverse pattern to the one seen as criteria have become more strict.   They established that a modern correlation between paternal age and Autism Disorder couldn’t be substantiated as causal as it was not seen in earlier times with trends of older paternity.

 

In 1979, coincident with the first autism disorder change point, vaccine manufacturing changes introduced human fetal DNA fragments and retroviral contaminants into childhood vaccines (Victoria et al., 2010).  While we do not know the causal mechanism behind these new vaccine contaminants and autistic disorder, human fetal DNA fragments are inducers of autoimmune reactions, while both DNA fragments and retroviruses are known to potentiate genomic insertions and mutations (Yolken et al., 2000; Kurth 1998; U S Food and Drug Administration 2011).  Infants and children are almost universally exposed to these additional vaccine components/contaminants, and these converging events are associated with rising autistic disorder in a dose-de-pendent fashion due to the increasing numbers of human fetal manufactured vaccines which have been added to the US immunization guidelines, including Pentacel®, which since 2008, contains inactivated polioviruses grown on the MRC-5 human fetal cell line. Pentacel® is recommended  for children  at  2,  4  and  6  months  of  age, and may account for the recent idea that scientists have become more adept at diagnosing  autism  at  younger  age. Diagnosis at younger age may more likely be the result of introducing human fetal cell vaccine contaminates to younger children.   link

The causal mechanism is unknown as yet, but:

This overlooked potential trigger for the worldwide autism disorder epidemic demands additional studies in order to assure the safe manufacture of routine recommended childhood vaccines, particularly since   reverting   to   animal based  manufacturing methods is readily available. link

Please send comments to the research author if you disagree with the methods or conclusions of this research: tdeisher@soundchoice.org (corresponding author).
