Should I Take Vaccines?

Monday, 20 August 2012 09:01 AM

Question: Recently, two people at my office have experienced cases of shingles. Are there any vaccinations that you believe the benefits outweigh the risks?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:

Ironically, the reason the shingles vaccine was developed was because of the widespread use of the chickenpox vaccine. This latter vaccine dramatically increased the incidence of shingles in adults.

There is no evidence that the shingles vaccine works, but there is evidence that some have gotten the shingles after getting the vaccine. In adults who get shingles, the chickenpox virus has been hiding (latent) in the ganglion close to their spinal nerves for a lifetime. When a person’s immune system weakens, the virus re-activates and inflames the nerve — causing blistering, intense pain and misery.

The secret to preventing shingles is to boost your immune system, which involves diet changes, avoiding immune-suppressing omega-6 oils and high sugar diets, and stimulating the cellular immune system with vitamin D3, beta 1,3/1,6-glucan, or Carnivora (a mixture of immune stimulants). Vitamin E (mixed tocopherols/tocotrienols), vitamin C, selenium, zinc, magnesium and a well-balanced multivitamin/mineral supplement will prevent the shingles in most cases.

The problem with vaccines is that in many cases they contain many brain-toxic additives (adjuvants) and are frequently contaminated with viruses and mycoplasma. Nutrition can accomplish more than vaccination and without the harmful side effects.
