The Vaccine Debate – What Is The Evidence?

leave a comment »

We all hear about it in the news seemingly every day.  Swine flu propaganda and fear generation is everywhere.  Have you ever stopped to think about why that is?  The answer is: Fear Sells.

They call it the “vaccine industry” for a reason.  It is industrious.  By creating fear and putting some publicly well known doctor’s name behind it, the vaccine industry makes billions of dollars per year by scaring you into getting the shot.  The same fear makes them billions more by scaring parents into taking their children in to receive over 35 shots, containing 113 different kinds of disease particles, 59 different chemicals, 4 types of animal cells/DNA, and human DNA from aborted fetal tissue before the age of 10.  Do you want this injected into yourself or your baby?

According to the International Medical Council on Vaccination (IMCV), vaccines have documented associations with:

  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Arthritis
  • Autism
  • Acid Reflux
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Sudden Infant Death Syndrome
  • A long list of neurological and autoimmune diseases.

Known vaccine side effects documented in the medical literature are:

  • Arthritis
  • Heart Attacks
  • Blood Clots
  • Ear Infections
  • Kidney Failure
  • Seizures/Epilepsy
  • Severe allergic reactions
  • Sudden Death

And yes, vaccines ARE associated with onset of Autism! The IMCV states, “Autism was rare until the mass vaccination programs were accelerated in 1991, with the introduction of the Hepatitis B vaccine and the HiB (meningitis) vaccine.  Tens of thousands of parents will attest that autism appeared in their children very soon after they were given these, and other, vaccines.”  To view the information for yourself, visit

I know what you’re thinking, “Well if I don’t vaccinate my child, they’ll be unhealthy and at risk for serious diseases.”  Is that true?  Or are you just repeating what the industry wants you to say?  Let’s look at the research.

Generation Rescue sponsored the Cal-Oregon Project in 2006.  The purpose of the project was to compare vaccinated children with unvaccinated children and see which population was indeed healthier.  After looking at 17,674 children, the results showed:

  • Vaccinated children had 120% more Asthma
  • Vaccinated boys had 317% more ADHD
  • Vaccinated boys had 185% more neurological disorders
  • Vaccinated boys had 146% more Autism

I think it’s obvious which population of children turned out to be healthier…the unvaccinated.  To view the study results yourself, visit

The last major question we get is, “I have to vaccinate my child, otherwise he or she will not be allowed into public school, right?”  Again, that is false information.  You have the right to refuse vaccination, use it.  Every state has vaccine exemptions, meaning, your child does not have to be vaccinated to attend public school.  To find out how to file an exemption for your child in your state, visit  To find a healthcare provider who agrees with your choice not to vaccinate and will respect you, visit

At Transcendent Lifestyle Center, we are here to empower you with the knowledge necessary to create the healthiest life possible for you and your family.  Do the right thing and research this topic for yourself.  After all, no one cares more about your health than you do.  If you have further questions, please feel free to contact us.  We want to be your source of everything health!

What is your first thought when you wake each day?

This is an important question. As I’ve touched on before, thoughts become things. One of the most important thoughts of the day is your first one. Why? One word…Momentum.

If thoughts become things, and the first thought leads to the 2nd, and the 2nd to the 3rd, and so on; don’t you think the first thought should be the right one? Me too. So what should the first thought be?


Start the day of with gratitude. Be thankful for another day, be thankful for a loving family, be thankful for your health, or the ability to change your health by choice. Be thankful that you live in a free country, be thankful that you have a job, be thankful that you have a creative mind that can get you a job.

The point is, if your first thought is a thought of gratitude rather than a thought of stress, then your day will start off with positive momentum. Hopefully you will leverage that momentum to make it a positive day as a whole. Take that positive day and turn it into a positive week, and so on.

Eventually you have a life that you are happy with and everyone around you can see it. Then you become a positive role model and you change their lives for the better.

Gratitude, pass it on.

Chiropractic Positively Affects ADHD

with 3 comments

The 2010 Proceedings of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) Research Conference recently published a case study involving the response of a 7-year-old child with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder to chiropractic adjustments over the course of a year.

Approximately 8 million children in the United States are labeled with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD and generally are being medicated for this condition.  ADHD is a childhood mental disorder with onset before 7 years of age and involving impaired or diminished attention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. The behaviors must be excessive, last for at least six months, and cause a problem in a social environment, such as at school or home.

Ritalin is a common prescription given for ADHD, but since medications offer risk as well as possible dependencies, alternative options are worth investigating.  Especially since Ritalin is in the same classification of drug as Cocaine.  Do we really want our children on a drug this powerful?

A male child was diagnosed by a psychiatrist at age 3 with ADHD, due to behaviors such as uncontrolled violent outbreaks, difficulty following directions, and inability to function in social situations.  From 3-7 years the child was prescribed anti-psychotropic medications, which only moderately controlled the patient’s behavior.  His parents were under extreme stress attempting to cope with their child’s aggressive behavior and sought chiropractic care as a last resort at age 7.

Within one month of care the patient demonstrated significant behavior improvements. The parents reported the child was significantly calmer, “less defiant,” and had reduced aggressive behavior.  Working with the psychiatrist after 5 months of chiropractic care the child was able to be weaned off all psychotropic medication without any relapse of prior behavior.

This is crucial, no longer is the child on a Cocaine derivative and subject to addiction, violent outbreaks, and suicidal tendencies!

Chiropractic care of children with ADHD has evidence in the published literature and it is possible that a mechanical and/or neurological dysfunction could be contributing to a patient’s presentation as well as explain the success of chiropractic care with some cases.  Greater results have been seen when combining nutritional changes and chiropractic care for pediatric patients presenting with ADHD.

Short-Term Enhancement Of Creative Thinking Following A Chiropractic Adjustment

with one comment


A recent article in the Chiropractic Journal of Australia reported on a pilot study involving the responses of ten subjects to a single chiropractic adjustment and how it affected their creative thinking.

Creativity is the ability to generate ideas, “…both novel and useful (or influential) to a particular social setting.”

Interview responses of the subjects post-adjustment indicated 7 of the subjects elicited new directions in a real-world creative tasks and six of the subjects reported renewed energy towards a creative project as well as improvement in their performance on the alternate uses test.

The procedure for the alternative uses test is to write down as many uses for an object as possible during a ten minute period.  For example, naming all the different ways you could use a newspaper was one of the questions used, as was naming all the different ways you could use a chair, followed by naming all the different ways you can use a shoe.

Once testing was completed, each subject was assessed for subluxation, which has been defined as: “A complex of functional and/or structural and/or pathological articular changes that compromise neural integrity and may influence organ system function and general health.”  Following the assessment, a chiropractic adjustment was administered.  The adjustment has been defined as, “A maneuver in a specific vector, velocity, intensity of force and point of application that is intended to assist the body in restoring normal tone by correction subluxation in whole or in part.”

Following the adjustment, another version of the alternate uses test was administered and participants were interviewed two to eight days later.

Taken as a whole, the results indicated improvement in real world creative tasks during the two to eight day period after the adjustment, which is very exciting.

Naturally, due to the small size of the study, these conclusions must be considered preliminary, pending verification by future studies.
