To Shoot or Not to Shoot?

Dr. Martha’s Monday Morning Motivational

Let’s talk flu vaccine.  D.D. Palmer said, “Compulsory vaccination is an outrage and a gross interference with the liberty of the people in a land of freedom.” Any Questions?


Whenever I am driving I am constantly reminded to stay on task and to serve at a higher level as I pass business after business offering flu shots for free or for a discounted price.  I am sickened at Big Pharma and the amount of money spent on advertising, especially when our nation is in the state that it is in economically.  As if the signage papering the walls of buildings and plastered on every billboard and business isn’t enough there is the use of television.  Big Pharma knows how many people will believe anything they hear and see when it’s via a t.v. or radio ad.  They add the aspect of fear by saying, “If you love them…” or “The only true way to protect your child from the flu and/or the possibility of death…” or “Not getting the flu yourself you can infect your child…” or “Save the elderly in your life…”.  This time of year it is everywhere I look, go, and all that I listen to via person and radio.  And to add fuel to my fire they even offer what I refer to as a “DRIVE BY SHOOTING”, where you can drive through a hospital and get a vaccine without ever leaving your car.  I am not sure how this became legal or whose brilliant idea this was but it  is completely ignorant creating yet another venue to become poisoned and with no hassle.  

My first of MANY questions regarding the flu vaccine is are there any guidelines for vaccines? Can anyone and everyone get one? What about the immune compromised, isn’t there a possibility that injecting a LIVE virus into their blood stream could decrease their immunity even more? What about really, really stressed out people wouldn’t this add EVEN more stress to their body? What testing and assessing is done to see if in fact the individual truly needs a vaccine? Or if that vaccine will make them worse and not just “protect them (yeah right)”? What are the parameters used? I don’t think there are any…that I have seen. They only say: no one under 6 months (whats the difference between 6 moths and 7 months? REALLY?), if you are already ill, if you are allergic to the flu vaccine, AND the kicker : People who developed People who developed Guillain-Barre Syndrome within 6 weeks of getting an influenza vaccine.within 6 weeks of getting an influenza vaccine. NOTE: how do you know if you are allergic without getting one? And seriously, Guillain-Barre Syndrome is a risk.  You have got to be kidding me.  One word, WOW!

Let’s put this in perspective…one is offered “drive thru chiropractic adjustement”.  In this scenario, an individual is able to drive up to my office and honk.  I come running out with a clipboard and ask them to sign to validate that I am NOT responsible for anything at all that may occur. Now note that I am not saying that bad happens with an adjustment but that I have not assessed their nervous system and have no clue of it’s level of function.  Nor do I have any clue if they have fractures, fusions, or surgical changes that may require a specific adjustment type.  Note that I have also not checked their spine and I am not aware of whether or not they have any subluxations and at what levels they have misalignment.  I can only imagine how this would all go down…it would be all over the news.  I would have the medical profession, the general public, and, HOPEFULLY, the chiropractic profession in an upheaval.  The irony is that a WHOLE LOT LESS could go wrong IF ANYTHING with this scenario and you are all probably astounded…I can only imagine what society would think.  This same scenario is also true of giving  adjustments in a grocery store, drug store, mall, and other places… like they do flu vaccines.  I’m surprised they don’t have them in arcades, movie theaters, or at parks.  I better be careful not to give BIG PHARMA any ideas.

Bringing up the irony, only a percentage of society flinches at the flu vaccine…and YOU CAN DIE FROM IT!! Or become autistic or paralyzed.  AND the kicker is you usually GET THE FLU! Why is it more rare to find someone who thinks this is RIDICULOUS…utterly and simply ridiculous??

If you are of my view point please heed my recommendations.  I recommend you drink plenty of water, eat whole and live foods in balanced proportions, get adequate sleep, slow down, take your vitamins and fish oil, most importantly see your chiropractor regularly.  Regular chiropractic care balances your nervous system and therefore strengthens your immune system.  A strong immune system is essential to protect your body from bacteria and viruses.  FYI, a weak immune system allows your body to be a petri dish for bacteria and virus making you susceptible to “BEING SICK”. FYI, getting a flu vaccine DECREASES your overall flu vaccine.

It is important that as chiropractors, chiropractic patients, and chiropractic advocates we educate like never before…we have no choice. There are more of “THEM” and they have more money…BUT, we have passion and passion is can create an unstoppable force.  Donald Trump said, “Without passion, you don’t have energy; without 
energy, you have nothing. Nothing great in the world has been 
accomplished without passion.” Think about it…how much passion can they have about shooting poison in people’s veins? They don’t. They have passion about the money they make…smiling as their pocket books swell.  Step up, we have the knowledge…it is time to share.  Come from a place of love and truth and you will be openly accepted by those who cross your path. There is no way an educated person would choose to get vaccinated.

Need more convincing? Watch this: [youtube=] Need I say more? Really would you shoot your child with this? Or drink it? Then WHY WOULD YOU PUT IT IN YOUR VEINS -DIRECTLY IN YOUR BLOOD STREAM?

Love. Laugh. Adjust.
