Health Hazard of Routine Vaccination:
placing our animals at risk

"A practice that was started many years ago and that lacks scientific validity or verification is annual re-vaccinations. Almost without exception there is no immunologic requirement for annual revaccinations. Immunity to viruses persists for years or for the life of the animal. Successful vaccination to most bacterial pathogens produces an immunologic memory that remains for years, allowing an animal to develop a protective anamnestic (secondary) response when exposed to virulent organisms. Only the immune response to toxins requires boosters (e.g. tetanus toxin booster, in humans, is recommended once every 7-10 years). And no toxin vaccines are currently used for dogs and cats. Furthermore, revaccination with most viral vaccines fails to stimulate an anamnestic (secondary) response as a result of interference by existing antibody (similar to maternal antibody interference). The practice of annual vaccination in our opinion should be considered of questionable efficacy unless it is used as a mechanism to provide an annual physical examination or is required by law (i.e., certain states require annual revaccination for rabies)."  Don Hamilton, DVM 

The arguments against vaccination include the following viewpoints:

Vaccines do not prevent disease or immunize, they   sensitize.

Vaccines cause encephalitis, inflammation of the brain.

Vaccines are deadly poisons.

Vaccines can cause the disease they are designed to prevent.

Vaccines shed into the environment spreading disease.

Vaccines disarm and unbalance the immune system.  

"You take healthy animals and often very quickly after you vaccinate, you can see simple things like itching of the skin or excessive licking of the paws, sometimes even with no eruptions. We see a lot of epilepsy, often after a rabies vaccination. Or dogs or cats can become aggressive for several days. Frequently, you'll see urinary tract infections in cats, often within three months after their [annual] vaccination. If you step back, open your mind and heart, you'll start to see patterns of illness post-vaccination."   Dr.Dee Blanco, D.V.M., a holistic practitioner in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

"Routine" vaccination has adverse side-effects, either short or long term. With vaccines that are repeated year after year, the frequency and severity of these side-effects in our pets has increased dramatically. Most of the problems involve the immune system. After all, the immune system is what vaccines are designed to stimulate. But they do so in a very unnatural way that can overwhelm and confuse the immune system." Donna Starita Mehan DVM

Dr. Ronald D. Schultz, Ph.D..- "Annual revaccination provides no benefit and may increase the risk for adverse reactions. The percentage of vaccinated animals (those vaccinated only as puppies) protected from clinical disease after challenge with canine distemper virus, canine parvovirus and canine adenovirus in the study was greater than 95%."

Below is a partial list of ingredients in vaccines. NOTE: THERE IS NO SAFE LEVEL FOR SOME OF THESE POISONS.  The damage from these toxins, including brain damage, can vary from mild enough not to be apparent, to severe, and in some cases death. You cannot inject a human or animal with these poisons and expect no adverse effect. What varies is the degree of damage. This is due to: 

     genetic variations in recipients, affecting susceptibility.

  • variations within recipients due to stress, an over-worked immune system, previous  vaccines,etc.

  • variations between vaccine batches -  difficult in controlling the levels of toxins in vaccines, results in some batches labelled "hot lots". Many of these "hot lots" are not recalled in time

  • These poisons interfere with the activities of the immune system, thus weakening it.  In the young, the immune system is not fully developed, thus, the battle is more often lost within hours or a few days from the injection. Older babies often hold out longer and only lose the battle after a few weeks or longer.

Formaldehyde:  Used as a tissue fixative

Formaldehyde is oxidised to formic acid which leads to acidosis and nerve damage. Acidosis can be described as a condition in which the acidity of the body tissues and fluids is abnormally high. The liver and the kidneys may also be damaged.  IT IS NOT SAFE AT ANY LEVEL.

Mercury:  Used as a preservative

Mercury is the second most poisonous element known to man (next to uranium).IT IS NOT SAFE AT ANY LEVEL. Mercury is a highly toxic element which does not easily leave the body. Once ingested, injected, or inhaled, it stays and accumulates.


Aphthous, stomatitis, catarrhal gingivitis, nausea, liquid stools, pain, liver disorder, injury to the cardiovascular system and hematopoietic system, deafness and ataxia. Exposure may be fatal. Headache, paresthesia of the tongue, lips, fingers and toes, other non-specific dysfunctions, metallic taste, slight gastrointestinal disturbances, excessive flatus and diarrhea may occur. Acute poisoning may cause gastrointestinal irritation and renal failure. Early signs of severe poisoning include fine tremors of extended hands, loss of side vision, slight loss of coordination in the eyes, speech, writing and gait, inability to stand or carry out voluntary movements, occasional muscle atrophy and flexure contractures, generalized myoclonic movements, difficulty understanding ordinary speech, irritability and bad temper progressing to mania, stupor, coma, mental retardation in children, skin irritation, blisters and dermatitis. Other symptoms include chorea, athetosis, tremors, convulsions, pain and numbness in the extremities, nephritis, salivation, loosening of the teeth, blue line on the gums, anxiety, mental depression, insomnia, hallucinations and central nervous system effects. Exposure may also cause irritation of the eyes, mucous membranes and upper respiratory tract."


Antifreeze: Also known as Ethylene Glycol. May lead to kidney, liver, blood and central nervous system (CNS) disorders. Harmful or fatal if swallowed. Effects include behavioural disorders, drowsiness, vomiting, diarrhoea, visual disturbances, thirst, convulsions, cyanosis, and rapid heart rate, CNS stimulation, depression, cardiopulmonary effects, kidney disorders. May also lead to liver and blood disorders. Produces reproductive and developmental effects in experimental animals.

A volatile, flammable and poisonous liquid alcohol. Used as a solvent and an antifreeze compound in fuel. In the body it is metabolised to formaldehyde  . 


(sodium tetraborate decahydrate):

Traditionally used as a pesticide, including ant killer. Suspected cardiovascular or blood toxicant, endocrine toxicant, gastrointestinal or liver toxicant and neurological toxicant. Found to cause reproductive damage and reduced fertility in a study on rats.


Poisonous if ingested (would be worse if injected). Causes birth defects in experimental animals.


(monosodium glutamate):

Sulfate and phosphate compounds  

Ammonium Sulfate:

Gastrointestinal or liver toxicant, neurotoxicant, respiratory toxicant.

Gentamicin Sulfate:

an antibiotic.

Neomycin Sulfate:

an antibiotic. Interferes with Vitamin B6 absorption. An error in the uptake of B6 can cause a rare form of epilepsy and mental retardation.


Kidney toxicant, neurotoxicant. More hazardous than most chemicals in 2 out of 3 ranking systems. On at least 1 federal regulatory list.

Polymyxin B:

another antibiotic

Polysorbate 20 / 80:

Skin or sense organ toxicant. Known to cause cancer in animals.


Gastrointestinal or liver toxicant. Less hazardous than most chemicals in 1 ranking system.


a component of the Hib bacterium.


Carcinogen, gastrointestinal or liver toxicant, respiratory toxicant, skin or sense organ toxicant. More hazardous than most chemicals in 3 out of 3 ranking systems. On at least 5 federal regulatory lists. Ranked as one of the most hazardous compounds (worst 10%) to humans.

Amphotericin B:

MME definition - "a drug used to treat fungus infections. Known allergy to this drug prohibits use. Side effects include blood clots, blood defects, kidney problems, nausea and fever. When used on the skin, allergic reactions can occur."

Animal organ tissue and blood:

Animal cell lines need to be used to culture the viruses in vaccines, so this material is included in the formulation that is injected. Other than when this protein material is digested (i.e. consumed and broken down into its component amino acids, etc, before absorption), it is unusable and toxic to the body. It can also contain many animal viruses (see Animal Viruses).

Animals used include monkey (kidney), cow (heart), calf (serum), chicken (embryo and egg), duck (egg), pig (blood), sheep (blood), dog (kidney), horse (blood), rabbit (brain), guinea pig, etc. 

Aborted human foetal tissue and human albumin:

Tissue from another human (not just animals) is foreign and therefore toxic to the body.

Large foreign proteins:

In addition to the above accompanying (protein) material, there are large proteins that are deliberately included, used for such purposes as adjuvants (i.e. to help get an immune "response"). Egg album and gelatin (or gelatine, obtained from selected pieces of calf and cattle skins, de-mineralized cattle bones and pork skin) are in several vaccines. Casein (milk protein) is in the triple antigen, i.e. DPT vaccine. As explained above, when injected, proteins are toxic to the body. Hence the immune system "response" - it is stressed by this invasion, which results in sensitisation - it becomes sensitive to these substances, not immune to them.


This is in the hepatitis B vaccine which is given routinely to health workers. Have you heard about the problem of the high occurrence of latex allergy among nurses? How do you think they became sensitised to latex? Allergic reactions can be life-threatening. Hepatitis B vaccine is now routinely given to newborn babies in many countries, including Australia and the US.

Animal Viruses:

Some of these can be particularly alien to the human body. The most frequently documented and publicised example is the monkey virus SV40. This is harmless in monkeys, but inject it into a human and it can cause cancer – in the brain (tumours), bone (e.g. multiple myeloma), lungs (mesothelioma) and lymphoid tissue (lymphoma).

Human Viruses:

The viruses against which the vaccine is supposed to protect are frequently said to be "killed", "inactivated" or "attenuated". This is a myth. The main method used to inactivate viruses is treatment with formaldehyde, whose effectiveness is only limited, and even then only temporary - once the brew is injected into the body and disperses, it is documented in orthodox medical literature that these "killed" viruses can revert to their former virulence

 Truth about Vaccinations

About a month ago, I received a frantic phone call from a client of mine.  Her minature horse was having difficulty standing, his hind legs were tucked up under him, he could not do anything but spin in a circle, then fall to the ground. The vet had been out to see him, treated him for colic and still no improvement.  By day two, the vet had to use a catheter to extract his urine and assist in removing stool.  By the third day there was still no improvement and the vet had no idea what was wrong with him.  
I immediately connected with him energetically and discovered there was a poison involved. By the time I arrived on the scene it became clear the poison I was receiving was from his routine vaccinations.  I questioned her upon arrival and his last shots were one week prior.  That confirmed he was having a severe reaction to these shots.
I began energy work as his central nervous system was in shock and orally induced Rapid Reponse and Transfer Factor Stress pack.  I worked on him for 4 hours and finally he was able to stop trembling.  I had his owner continue giving him RR and TF every 4 hours.  The next day I applied the same treatment plan for about 2 1/2 hours.  Then the miracle happened.  He jumped to his feet and went walking around as if nothing had happened.  Tears of joy were flowing. 

One month later and he shows no signs of permanent damage.  He was one of the lucky ones, thanks to the quick action of his ower and the lifesaving products that work miracles!!
