Natural Immunity - for Good Health


From creation, God gave people and animals the ability to develop natural immunity to diseases. Those that were weak or compromised did not survive but the majority did because their immune systems were healthy enough to develop protection to disease. This fact has not changed despite man introducing the vaccine. If vaccines were the only way to keep animals and people from getting diseases, as the medical establishment would have us believe, surely everything and everyone would be extinct already. It just doesn’t make sense. Unfortunately, I believe the promotion of vaccines is the cash cow, all the while providing triggers for disease.


 A truly healthy immune system is the only answer for keeping people and animals from getting sick. But, how do we get that healthy immune system and maintain it? Symptoms of illness are the results of a challenged immune system and that includes cancer.  Recommended reading is Catherine O’Driscoll’s "What Vets Don’t Tell You About Vaccines" and "Shock to the System." These books will cover much more than I will on this website and should be read if you are serious about learning. There is a tremendous amount of information about the harm of vaccines (for animals and people) if you seek it out. In fact, I recommend the book "Evidence of Harm, Mercury in Vaccines and the Autism Epidemic: A Medical Controversy" by David Kirby.


As discussed previously, nutrition is the foundation to maintain each animal to have as healthy an immune and digestive system as possible because 80-85% of the immune system is the digestive system. While proper nutrition for the species is absolutely necessary, food will not do it alone. We must address everything that goes into or on the body of our companions. Everything matters regardless if human or animal. A key factor to keeping that immune system primed is to support and allow the body to develop its own natural immunity instead of trying to trick the body with substances that contain many harmful chemicals. That simply means that all animals, given the opportunity, can develop immunity to disease without being injected with man-made vaccines.  Is that possible? Absolutely!


Most people believe that when an animal is vaccinated immunity is guaranteed! Not true! Most vets don’t inform their clients of the truth so the assumption continues. Vaccines can also cause the disease they are intended to protect against. Vaccines bypass the natural pathways that animals and people need to develop natural immunity plus they contain toxic chemicals such as mercury, formaldehyde and thimerosal, known carcinogens. A good example: here are two apples.  One is grown with pesticides and toxic chemicals and one is grown without. Which would you choose to be the healthier choice for your body?


The natural way to immunity is to allow pathogens (any disease producing agent, especially a virus, bacterium, or other microorganism) to enter the body by the nose or mouth from normal, everyday exposure. If there is a challenge, a healthy immune system immediately mounts a defense against the invaders, renders them no longer a threat but stores the memory of the pathogen as a “memory cell.”  Memory cells are small, long-lived lymphocytes (white cells) that has previously encountered a given antigen (any substance that can stimulate the production of antibodies (primary immune defenses) and that on re-exposure to the same antigen, rapidly initiates the immune response (memory T cell) or replicates rapidly and produces large amounts of specific antibodies (memory B cells), the agent of lasting immunity.


If those naughty pathogens try to invade the body in the future, those memory cells go into alert and troops are sent out to search and destroy. When the body has immunity, there is certainly no medical or moral justification to put in a harmful man-made vaccine. Also, there is no such thing as “a booster” vaccination.  Either a dog has immunity or not and the best way to know is to have proper titers done. Therefore, yearly “boosters” or giving another vaccine to boost immunity has long ago been exposed as a fraud, while contributing to health issues over time. I would encourage doing those titers and perhaps consider another veterinarian if all he or she does is insist on vaccinations.     


I consider vaccines akin to a poisonous trigger in the body and believe they will cause more harm to an animal in time.  They have been implicated in triggering so many health issues including allergies and other autoimmune diseases such as cancer.
