Maxime Dawson promoting homeoprophylaxis as a more effective prevention against whooping cough than the vaccine and with a bonus "whooping cough is fun".

shared material:
[content] There continues to be much in the news about whooping cough… Well trained homeopaths have successfully protected and treated patients with whooping cough with excellent results for over 100 years.
Read what that wonderful homeopath Dr. Dorothy Shepherd MD of London wrote about whooping cough in 1967…

"Personally, I have used for years and years in whooping cough its own nosode, Pertussinum,… which I has given me 100 percent protection even though it raged in a particular district… I used it for years in nurseries, in my private practice, in the medical clinic, and in hundreds of cases in various epidemics we went through, and truly it is a great remedy." In one epidemic, she provided homeoprophylaxis to 364 children in a nursery that had been exposed to whooping cough without one of the cases developing the disease.

"To quote an early experience - When I was not sure yet of the power of Pertussinum in preventing the disease, a girl of five years attended a private school - of twenty-one children in her class, eighteen were infected with a severe type of whooping cough. Only three escaped - two had had whooping cough a year before, and the third was my little friend. How anxious I was whether my little doses would work, and great was the triumph when we were successful. The school doctor, whose own two children were attacked with a particularly severe variety of whooping cough after doses of prophylactic serum administered by himself, was wrath with the little girl's mother, because he would have it that the little one must have had whooping cough the year before without the mother knowing! [!!] He accused her of not being exactly truthful as it was impossible to prevent whooping cough. In another private school, a child came back after the holidays with a fully developed whooping cough, in spite of carrying a doctor's certificate as being free from an infectious disease. All twelve children in her class were infected. The headmistress, on my advice, gave Pertussinum 30 four-hourly, and the children had the mildest attack of whooping cough she had ever seen. They enjoyed being ill, playing all the time in the orchard and in the big old barn instead of having lessons. Ten years previously, she told me, whooping cough was inadvertently taken to her school. All the children had it. Weeks of great anxiety and hard work followed. Several night and day nurses had to be called in - it was a nightmare for her. She was grateful to Homoeopathy, and to the nosode Pertussinum for turning so serious a disease into a mild one."

[image text - excerpt from news article]

[content] ''So - doctors can't be blamed because they never do anything wrong. They are killing and injuring children - not because they are too stupid, careless and negligent to read the package inserts and realise that they are administering the wrong vaccine. No - that can't happen! They are administering the wrong vaccine because parents are asking for FluVax and that is a brand name so if parents ask for FluVax - that's what they are giving and FluVax is not supposed to be given to children under the age of 5. (though 5 and 1 day is safe somehow…). It's the parent's fault - not the doctor's.
Hundreds of children have been hospitalised, an unknown number killed and at least 2 have suffered permanent brain damage from this very vaccine.
So Robert Booy suggests that the answer is getting CSL to rename the shot. There's a novel ideal! Instead of holding doctors responsible for being negligent, continue to blame the parents and think that somehow, renaming the shot will be the answer.
Well, I say that if a few of these doctors were actually taken to court for their negligence, it would have a far better effect on the rest of them than any name change.''

''If you or I harmed someone in carrying out our duties, we would be held accountable, you had better believe that! Yet doctors are somehow a 'special case' adn they can do almost anything (except use or recommend natural therapies) with complete impunity.
That has to change.
MD''

''There is a lot of opposition at the moment towards those making the choice not to vaccinate. This research contains evidence that vaccines can have serious consequences on health. Children are our most precious commodity and their health is paramount, parents who chose not to vaccinate are doing so because they think this is best. Likewise those that choose to vaccinate are doing so because they believe that to be the best choice for the children. Whatever choice you make, let it be an informed one.''

Special Mention - Cancer Quackery

Maxime Dawson promoting and encouraging the use of the dangerous cancer self-treatment, Black Salve, in favour of conventional cancer treatments.
The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) had released a Safety Alert earlier in the year (19 March), warning consumers about using Black and red salves in treating cancer.

Dawson [quote]:
''BLACK SALVE - I have had so much success with this. A small amount of the salve is applied to the skin and then covered with a band aid. Black Salve only works on cancerous moles, so if the mole is cancerous the salve attacks a certain enzyme and roots out the cancer - the mole then dries up and drops off - it's amazing!''

''Yep, it has no effect if moles aren't cancerous, its an amazing salve, it has saved a number of people having to undergo surgery but sadly not widely known about, the more people who try it the better :-=)

[title] ''The Root Cause of Cancer and Why Has It Been Kept a Secret''

[content] ''Dr. Warburg was one of the 20th centuries leading biologists, and he discovered that the root cause of cancer is too much acidity in the body, meaning that the pH in the body is below the normal level of 7,365, which constitutes an 'acidic' state. Warburg investigated the metabolism of tumours and t…''

[image text] ''CANCER CURE
A 60 gram supply of Cannabis Oil is recommended for those suffering from serious dis-ease such as cancer. Each tube is 10 grams. Pictured here is enough to treat one cancer patient. And only $600-$1,200 TOTAL. The health care industry would charge you that much for your first night in the hospital. Cure your cancer or lose your home and pay for chemotherapy''

[content] ''The US Government has known since 1974 that Cannabis cures Cancer. In '72 Richard Nixon wanted a larger budget for his war on drugs. He thought that if he proved Cannabis caused lung cancer like cigarettes do, he would get the support he needed. He gave the Medical College of Virginia 2 years to do a study on the effects of THC on the body. In '74 the study was completed. It turns out, THC when ingested in highly concentrated forms (such as eating Cannabis oil) will attack any mutated cells in your body while strengthening and rejuvenating the healthy cells. They found the PERFECT cure for Cancer. It worked fast, it worked well, it worked on many different forms of Cancer in ALL stages and it had ZERO harmful side effects. (Unlike Chemo which deteriorates your entire body and kills 1 in 5 patients. Not only that, but it dissolves ALL forms of tumors and can even combat super-bugs like MRSA). When Richard Nixon saw the results of the study he was FURIOUS. He threw the entire report in the trash and deemed the study classified. In 1976 President Gerald Ford put an end to all public cannabis research and granted exclusive research rights to major pharmaceutical companies, who set out - unsuccessfully - to develop synthetic forms of THC that would deliver all the medical benefits with the 'high'.''

''We only found out about the study a few years ago thanks to dedicated medical and law professionals who file Freedom of Information Requests. The Govt lied for many reasons. One of the main reasons is Pharmaceutical Companies. They spend billions every year lobbying to keep Cannabis illegal because they make TRILLIONS off Cancer drugs and research. They are already well aware that Cannabis cures Cancer. They have a great con going at the moment. Cancer patients and their loved ones will spend their entire life savings or even sell their houses and businesses in order to pay for Chemotherapy and other Cancer treatment drugs. A lot of the time they spend all that money and their loved one dies anyway. If the public found out that the Government has been lying for over 40 years, that MILLIONS of lives could have been saved and that the dying could grow the cure they need in their backyard… The Public would be going APE-SHIT.''

''PLEASE keep an open mind about this. I realize it's hard to believe but I PROMISE YOU, it's true. If you want to know more, you should Google 'Cannabis Cures Cancer'. You will see that there are thousands of published scientific studies, articles, books and documentaries on the subject. Id start with the film 'Run From The Cure'. Its one of my favorites.''

''(Comment from the admin): I feel the need to be EXCEPTIONALL CLEAR here because many people have attacked me for sharing this information. SMOKING CANNABIS DOES NOT CURE CANCER, EATING CANNABIS OIL DOES. There have been A LOT of skeptics about this. I highly suggest you actually RESEARCH THIS SUBJECT rather than demonize the people that have already actually researched it. Cannabis DOES CURE CANCER… This is not a rumor, this is not some internet hoax. THIS IS A FACT. Every single person I know that's tried this cure, has successfully cured their cancer. Do you get what I'm saying? I KNOW PEOPLE WHO WOULD NOT BE HERE TODAY IF IT WEREN'T FOR THE CURE. Plenty of people have posted proof online. Check before you doubt!!''

''Detects hidden Inflammation
Inflammation is a precursor to many diseases, such as cancer, arthritis, heart disease, stroke, diabetes and high blood pressure.''

Mammogram radiation can be up to 1000 times greater than from a chest x-ray.''

Why is the Cancer Industry not talking about it and promoting it? Wait until you see the history, they knew mammograms cause cancer and tumors, banned it then brought it back again and suppressed it's dark history!!''
