    Previously, we discussed the COVID-19 Vaccine ingredients, how mRNA vaccines work and a few unknowns related to the vaccine.

    In this article, I’m going to dive deeper into what we do know about vaccines, SARS-CoV-2 infections and how it impacts our immune system.

    I believe we should be fully informed on medical interventions that contain a high level of risk.

    Unfortunately, the level of risk has to do with many factors and variables that need to be assessed on an individual basis.

    This article is not meant to provide that type of information. It's only meant to increase awareness.

    Starting off, I’m going to offer a basic understanding of immunity and how our body reacts to infections.

    Then we’ll get into vaccines as an epidemic themselves, how vaccines & autoimmunity are connected, how SARS-Co-V-2 infections & autoimmunity are connected and finally the risk of developing autoimmunity from the spike proteins delivered via mRNA based vaccines.

    Immune Function 101

    We can organize the immune system into two systems which, when working together, create robust good health.

    These two systems are known as the innate or cell-mediated immune system and the adaptive or humoral immune system.

    The innate immune system’s job is to respond to invasions or pathogens such as virus, bacteria, fungi, or even toxins.

    When a pathogen enters our body, the innate immune system sends white blood cells to the area to eat up and destroy these pathogens.

    Once these pathogens are destroyed, we need to have a way of clearing them from the body. 

    Interestingly, what we call sickness (fever, body aches, mucus etc.) is a sign that the immune system is working and trying to clear those pathogens.

    In short, as the white blood cells chew up and spit out the dead pathogens, we eliminate those pathogens and that elimination manifests as symptoms.  

    These symptoms can present as skin detoxification (skin rashes), mucus production, coughing and sneezing. 

    While these symptoms are not fun, they are essential and beneficial. 

    Again, it's important to understand that your fever, rash, mucus, cough, sneeze and loose stools are all part of what is right with your body; not what's wrong.

    There are a few scenarios that can occur when humans get sick (depending on the individuals immune system), but we'll narrow it down to two:

    1. A person becomes infected, the immune system activates and clears the infection and they get better.
    2. A person becomes infected, the immune system activates and doesn't clear the infection and they don't get better.

    For example, in scenario 1, a human contracts chicken pox virus and the innate immune system activates and starts to attack the virus.

    The pox rash develops as part of the normal immune response and they get better as the virus is cleared.

    In scenario 2, if the immune system fails to respond, they suffer from an overwhelming chicken pox infection and can eventually succumb to it.

    This happens because the body could not mount a proper defense against the virus.

    The all important question is why?

    In addition to the natural order of dealing with viruses (or any other pathogen), we purposely blunt our immune system from helping us by trying to suppress symptoms (i.e. fever, rash, cough, mucus, etc). 

    It’s mind boggling to me that humans and their doctors try to shut down the innate immune system with over-the-counter remedies and prescription medications.

    I personally believe that this is why many humans have inadequate immune responses.

    Beginning with childhood, we've spent years suppressing our immune system, never allowing it to fully exercise it's right to protect you.

    Literally, some humans immune system is weak-sauce. 

    When we cannot activate an appropriate immune response or if we continuously interfere with medicines such as prednisone, antibiotics, fever reducers such as aspirin, ibuprofen or acetaminophen, the outcomes are much worse. [12].

    Now let’s discuss the adaptive immune system.

    As our body became more complex and sophisticated, it also became more vulnerable to invasion of larger, more complex organisms. 

    This includes flukes, worms, parasites and other infections where the innate immune system was insufficient to deal with it. 

    This is why we developed an adaptive immune system; immune cells that can learn and adapt to its environment (when given the chance!).

    The adaptive immune system is a highly sophisticated group of bio-assassin cells that can tag pathogens, signaling other immune cells to band together and destroy it. 

    Team work makes the dream work right!

    Using influenza as an example – the innate immune system first clears the virus along with the dead, infected cells.

    Then, the adaptive immune system learns what that virus looks like and develops antibodies unique to the virus. 

    What’s super cool about this is when a future infection occurs, the antibodies may destroy the virus before the innate immune system has a chance to respond, potentially eliminating the nasty symptoms before they even develop.

    It’s all a matter of appropriate immune response, appropriate history of infection and immune balance that all happens without medical intervention.

    Unfortunately, the practice of medicine over the course of the last hundred years has a backstory of reckless interference with our immune system, and in particular interference with our innate immune response. 

    Modern pediatrics is essentially an assault on the innate immune system, and nothing illustrates this better than the administration of vaccines

    Rather than allowing a child to contract influenza, we inject them with an antigenic piece of the virus, hoping it will stimulate an antibody response that bypasses the innate immune response.

    By continuously bypassing the innate immune response, we are enabling the immune system to not have to work for immunity.

    And just like a spoiled kid who has never had to work a day in their life, the immune system can develop a bad attitude and when shit hits the fan, it has no idea how to function by itself.

    Not only are we not allowing the immune system to learn and grow on its own, but the medical intervention comes with its own set of risks.

    You see most vaccines contain antigens that will not produce an antibody response on its own.

    This is why vaccines are not “clean”. They come packaged with adjuvants that act as an irritant (toxin), which then elicits an immune response.

    The Vaccine Epidemic

     
    As soon as they’re born, almost every American child receives vaccines.
     
    The CDC recommends seventy doses of sixteen different vaccines between birth and age 18. 
     
    The federal government also recommends vaccines for adults. 
     
    While public officials proclaim vaccines are safe and effective, the truth is far more complicated.
     
    Vaccination is a serious medical intervention that we give to healthy individuals against a disease that may or may not occur.
     
    The decision to vaccinate has important, potentially life-altering ramifications.
     
    While vaccines protect some, they unquestionable harm and cause death to others.
     
    The science on vaccine safety is inadequate: 
     
    • There are no randomized controlled studies comparing the total health outcomes of the vaccinated versus the unvaccinated.
    • Scientists (and doctors) do not know the cumulative impact of the childhood vaccine schedule.

    Vaccines are approved and licensed individually, yet the CDC recommends that doctors give multiple vaccines at once!?!

    Just last year, the CDC lost a major lawsuit regarding Vaccines and Autism. 

    Wait.. You didn't hear about that? Of course not.

    Without a doubt, the debate on vaccines and autism is a charged topic. 

    The CDC has made it clear that “there is no link between vaccines and autism.”

    But a March 2, 2020 court ruling found that the CDC has no studies to support that claim.

    Truth is, we just don't know and that's a big problem.

    Because when an organization that recommends a medical intervention on a mass scale states there's no risk of that intervention, yet they really don't know; it's down right negligent. 

    This is why I say vaccines are epidemic. 

    They have spread so rapidly and extensively to almost every child (and adult) in the United States and around the world.

    In the 1800s and 1900s, vaccines were a medical intervention of last resort during infectious disease. 

    Today, we force them under the guise of “for the greater good”, but at what cost?

    Vaccines link the skyrocketing rates of chronic diseases to a drop in acute infectious diseases, which “train” the immune system.

    Far from training the immune system, vaccines may negatively impact this training with an unhealthy immune response.

    As a public health strategy, there are just too many unanswered questions surrounding risk.

    If you inject a child with a toxin to provoke an antibody response, and suppress the innate immune response, how does the toxin clear the body?

    Several studies show that taking acetaminophen, aspirin or other NSAIDs at the time of vaccination increases the risk of negative outcomes. [3]

    Is the vaccine-induced immunity identical to the immunity provided by natural exposure to the disease?

    Are there genetically susceptible individuals who lack the cellular mechanisms necessary to clear adjuvants administered by vaccines?

    Is there a risk for genetic mutation, mutagenesis or carcinogenicity from injecting antigens and adjuvants into the human body?

    Hard fact: You cannot bypass the innate immune response and create lifelong immunity.

    If you’re continuously stimulating the adaptive immune system, what are the long-term consequences?

    Is it possible that stimulating antibody production will cause excessive antibody response?

    You'd think these questions would have been answered given the history of vaccine injuries and the economic impact of having to pay billions for those injuries.

    What's frightening is that we've paid billions for injuries that are known, but what about the fall out or potential injuries that are possible and not acknowledged?

    Vaccines & Autoimmunity

     

    In 2009, researchers at Kobe University in Japan asked the question:

    Is autoimmunity a natural consequence of overstimulating the adaptive immune system (which happens with vaccine administration)?

    They concluded that autoimmunity appears to be an inevitable consequence of over-stimulating the immune system by repeated immunization. [4]

    I’d like to point out this type of study, in such a systematic way, has never been performed in humans, but complements dozens of studies showing that vaccines cause autoimmune disease and that vaccinated children have higher rates of autoimmune disease than unvaccinated children do. [56]

    The point here is there's a connection. And if there's a connection, don't you think the authorities should fund and/or demand research to provide answers?

    Fortunately, non-specific effects of vaccines are now being studied. 

    This particular study and others support an association between multiple vaccinations and adverse health outcomes in children:

    Studies to date suggest that vaccinated children, although less susceptible to certain vaccine-preventable infections than unvaccinated children, are significantly more likely to be diagnosed with chronic conditions including:

    • allergic rhinitis
    • eczema
    • asthma
    • middle ear infections
    • pneumonia
    • developmental delays
    • neurodevelopmental disorders (ASD, ADHD, and learning disabilities, including speech-and-language disorders)
    • exposure to full versus partial vaccination is associated with higher rates of these conditions and with an increased risk of dying in infancy.

    Adding insult to injury, the deliberate provocation of antibodies without prior innate immune activity produces imbalances in our immune system and a state of excessive antibody production. 

    With millions of people now suffering from autoimmunity, a number unheard of before mass vaccination programs, why is it that asking for safety studies to be done on this is controversial?

    I'm ok being wrong.

    I just need to know that I'm wrong so I can make the appropriate steps to make things right. 

    What we do when we vaccinate – overstimulate the immune response to provoke antibody formation – is what the body is doing in autoimmune disease.

    We are literally injecting antigens into human beings to stimulate antibody production, and then wondering why so many people have developed food sensitivities, asthma and allergies, digestive dysfunctions, thyroid dysfunctions, etc.

    Certainly vaccines are not the only cause of autoimmunity, but they are a driving mechanism and I’d add a reckless one.

    SARS-CoV-2 & Autoimmunity

     

    There’s a strong chance that getting infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus can cause autoimmune disease.

    There are over 7,000 peer reviewed scientific papers describing molecular mimicry and autoimmune diseases between specific viral pathogens and human tissues. [7891011121314]

    Over the last year and because of the global outbreak of SARS-CoV-2, there has been an increased interest in understanding the diseases associated with this infection and its impact in our body.

    Several studies have made a connection between molecular mimicry and multi-organ disorders. [151617181920]

    Molecular mimicry is one of the leading mechanisms by which infectious or chemical agents may induce autoimmunity.

    The general idea here is the immune response against viral antigens following infection or vaccination, can cross-react with human tissue antigens, resulting in autoimmune reactivity which then contributes to developing autoimmune disease. [2122232425]

    What does that mean? 

    When you get infected with SARS-CoV-2, the antibodies produced by your own immune system to destroy the virus, may also seek and destroy your own tissues. 

    Dang.

    A recent study found that SARS-CoV-2 antibodies had reactions with 28 out of 55 tissue antigens ranging from immune barrier proteins (skin, digestive lining, respiratory), gastrointestinal, thyroid and neural tissues. [26]

    This could be part of the reason why we see a multi-organ failure in some chronically ill patients. 

    Again, depending on an individuals health status, how “trained” their immune system is, previous infections, nutritional status, etc, is what ultimately determines how the immune system will respond to the virus.

    It's not about the virus. Clearly there are humans that get exposed and deal with it appropriately. 

    It's about the host – the human who gets infected – and their susceptibility to infections.

    SARS-CoV-2 Vaccines & Autoimmunity

     

    As discussed in The COVID-19 Vaccine Part 1 article, the new mRNA vaccine consists of injecting mRNA that encodes for a specific part of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

    We have come to know this part as the spike protein.

    Recent observations suggest that the spike protein itself can trigger cell signaling which leads to a number of potential pathological processes. [27]

    These processes include various cardiovascular diseases such as coronary artery disease, systemic hypertension, and stroke.

    Besides cardiovascular conditions, any other cells in the body that express ACE2 (a door for the virus to enter) have the potential to be affected by the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein.

    Thus, it’s important to consider the possibility that the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein produced by COVID-19 vaccines can also trigger events that promote such complications. 

    There’s no way that we could have studied all the above in just a few short months. 

    There's no way that the safety of these vaccines can be determined.

    Given the context of this information, I believe it's irresponsible for the narrative to claim that these interventions are safe.

    I’m not saying that you shouldn’t get vaccinated.

    What I’m saying is that you should fully know the risks and then make a decision.

    Vaccines may benefit certain groups of the population with underlying conditions.

    However, to administer these vaccines to otherwise healthy individuals is asking for a shit storm of astronomical consequences.

    And to simply say, “It's completely Safe.” is criminal. 

    In The COVID-19 Vaccine Part 3 article, I will share various scenarios that I imagine my readers might find themselves in, and offer my best advice on how I’d navigate through the dilemma we all find ourselves in.
