So I watched er…listened to this video over the past couple days. https://www.facebook.com/areyoucrooked/videos/2018168381763526/
The video is over two hours long so it took awhile to get through it. Half of it was listening to it via Bluetooth while driving across the twin cities. I didn’t see all the graphs and pictures but I definitely got the jist of it.
The video is made by Forrest Maready and he’s just a regular guy doing some pretty extraordinary things. He is the dad of a child with autism and his wife has suffered with auto-immune disorders. He’s been on a two year quest to uncover answers and this video (and a book coming out soon) is really the culmination of that. He is very quick to point out that these are theories.
For me it was really illuminating. I, like many, have also suffered with auto-immune issues. Which, I can trace back to the summer that I was 12.
Journey back in time with me to a wonderful era when the Spice Girls were huge. The internet was confined to your clunky, slow home desktop computer. Helicopter parenting was not yet invented. I was a “free-range” kid before that was a thing. We lived outside a small town in southern Minnesota and it was wonderful. In the summer we disappeared into the woods behind our house for hours at a time. We stayed out late catching fireflies. We swam in a (gross) Lake Mazaska nearby. In the winter we dug snow forts, sledded, went ice skating, all of that. My mom always had me in sports. I was a very athletic kid and would go to some sort of sport practice nearly every day.
One of my favorite things to do was to explore abandoned structures with my friends. Of course my parents didn’t know, but remember this was the 90’s and I was a free-range chicken, er….kid. We liked to pretend an old one room school house was haunted and we’d spook ourselves silly and dare each other to go in alone. It was great except for the time that I ended up stepping on an old nail. It went through the sole of my shoe and pierced into the bottom of my foot.
I reluctantly told my mom who dutifully brought me in for a tetanus shot.
Now all of this was 20 years ago so this is a leap of connected memories and speculation but around that time I also developed debilitating asthma.
I had been an athlete and completely healthy. But one night my mom said she found me in the hallway in the middle of the night wheezing for air. I did tests which showed my lungs for very weak (all of a sudden…?) and got an inhaler and that was that.
But what if that wasn’t that? What if that tetanus shot had just started a cascade that would continue to be unleashed?
I can also look back and see that something changed within me as well. I had been a really happy kid. I had a lot of friends. But I would soon be plunged deep into depression and an eating disorder. It was so bad that I attempted suicide multiple times as a young teen.
Now this is all speculation, of course. But I did manage to dig up this study linking a two fold increase in asthma following tetanus vaccination https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10714532?dopt=Abstract
And this article explaining how the metals in vaccines can severely damage mental health http://whale.to/b/blaylock.html
As a young adult I mostly overcame these issues. I forced my lungs to get stronger through progressively harder workouts. I found faith and that helped with the mental health a lot. I was really happy.
Then I got my pregnant with my second child and all hell broke loose. My digestive system stopped working. My thyroid went berserk. I developed symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome. I saw many doctors but really had to do a ton of research myself into figuring out that I had celiac’s disease and some other food sensitivities.
The weird thing is, I grew up eating wheat and it was fine. I probably had three-four servings a day! But now eating it would make me curl up in a ball from the stomach pain, it would shut down my digestion, I would be too exhausted to complete basic tasks.
I remember my husband being puzzled, like, why are you so sick? You eat healthy and take such good care of yourself.
The interesting thing I learned in the video mentioned earlier is that when aluminum (back to that again!) is injected it gets gobbled up by white bloods cells, or macrophages, if we’re being technical. These white blood cells can lay dormant in your muscle tissue until some event triggers them to act. An event like *ahem* pregnancy or illness, stress, surgery, etc.
That’s why so many women develop auto-immune disorders after a pregnancy.
Again these are all theories hobbled together from real research.
But if you, like me, have auto-immune issues or autism or perhaps other issues you could trace back to a vaccine- there is hope. You can reclaim your health. Give the video a watch. He spend the first part talking about the bizarre phenomenon of the rise of the lopsided smile. It sounds weird but hear him out. He gets around to auto-immune disorders and aluminum later in the video.
It starts with doing a heavy metal detox. You can even get testing done to check your levels if you’re not sure.
It may be as easy as drinking a silica-rich water like Fiji. The silica water is able to safely bind to aluminum and carry it out of the body. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2216608/Drinking-litre-day-mineral-water-prevent-onset-Alzheimers-flushing-aluminium.html
Other methods include detoxing through sweating, detox baths, taking vitamin c, and supplementing glutathione.
It could be coincidence that I went from a healthy, happy kid to a suicidal, asthmatic mess within two years time of getting a tetanus shot. IDK maybe I’m completely wrong. If I find compelling evidence I will reverse my position and blog about that too.
In the mean time we need to really, really examine this. Not just for the sake of our own health but the generations coming after us. Because this is only going to continue to get worse if we don’t do something.
