How Does Sitting on the Toilet Lead to Sickness and Dis-ease?

How Does Sitting on the Toilet Lead to Sickness and Dis-ease?

Many people from around the world use to perform their physiological needs in a natural way, meaning in the common squatting position for thousands of years for healthy bowel elimination.

Constipation, hemorrhoids, intestinal cancer or Crohn`s disease were unfamiliar to these people. However, modern technology introduced a new way of emptying the large intestine – the sitting toilet bowl.

Unfortunately, latest studies have shown evidence that this position is associated with a number of inflammatory or acidic health issues.

1. Modern toilets are a risk for dis-ease

According to a study published in an Israeli magazine called “Journal of Medical Sciences” , the squatting position while emptying your intestines is the principal contributing cause of the following dis-eases:


Intestinal inflammations

Colon cancer

Pelvic diseases

Crohn’s disease

“The frequency of intestinal diseases (hemorrhoids, constipation, appendix inflammation, polyps, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome) is similar in South African white males and in the populations of rich Western countries. In the rural areas with traditional lifestyle, these diseases are very rare or almost unfamiliar”.

2. Modern toilets contribute towards the development of hemorrhoids

Generally, hemorrhoids occur due to an inflamed vein (the hemorrhoidal vein) located in the lower part of the colon and the anus. But also, they commonly appear as a result of straining during defecation particularly in people who have a harder stool from ingesting highly acidic food that does not digest or liquify. The sitting position leads to a weaker and slower defecation. This kind of position also requires greater straining.   On the other hand, emptying the large intestine while squatting is much faster and simpler and you almost don’t need any excessive pushing or straining.

3. Sitting on the toilet  will cause  intestinal inflammation

Furthermore, this position allows tightening of the Tuborectalis muscle which prevents total elimination. The content that remains in the large intestine can be a good foundation for fermentation and putrefaction leading to inflammation and even cancerous condition. Crohn’s syndrome belongs to the group of IBD- inflammatory dis-ease always cause by excess acidity in the bowels.

4. The development of urinary tract outfections

The aquatting position is also recommended for emptying the bladder as well. For example, women urinate much easier when in squatting position. In the sitting position, on the other hand, the bladder is never completely emptied so it allows for the holding of urine and leaves a space for acidic urine to breakdown bladder cells causing the development of bacteria and yeast and their associated exotoxins and mycotoxins.

5. Connection to heart attack

There is a real connection between heart attack and stroke incidence and defecation in sitting position. Namely, many heart attacks and deaths happen precisely in the bathroom. Israeli doctor, Berko Sikirov spent more than 20 years in analyzing the consequences of excessive pushing and straining during defecation in a sitting position and its correlation to heart attacks and stroke.

6. Menstrual problems and toxic shock syndrome (TSS)

Performing of physiological needs in a squatting position involves a complete pressure of the pelvis. This allows the urinary bladder to empty easily, but also the contents from the uterus during the menstrual cycle. Sitting position on the other hand, lacks of natural “pressing”, and a part of the menstrual liquid remains inside the uterus. A longer blood retention can lead to development of a great amount of cellular breakdown giving rise to bacteria like Staphylococcus aureus,  and their associated exotoxins or acids which can result with a toxic shock (TSS).

7.  Japanese people still “squat”

It is commonly known that Japan is a technological giant. However, they still use squat toilets which represent an essential part of every bathroom, particularly in the elder population. Apart from health and hygienic benefits which the squatting position offers, Japanese people simply love it because it “saves them time”.

8. The Squat chair

To practice intestinal emptying and urinating in a squatting position, bring your body into a position similar to squatting in the following way: put a special squat chair under your legs during sitting on your toilet bowl.


8 ALKALIZING FOODS THAT CLEANSE THE LIVER – garlic, grapefruit, green grasses, green vegetables, avocado, walnuts, and turmeric!

Our liver works extremely hard everyday to protect us from adverse affects from metabolic and dietary acid and often it is easy for our liver to become overwhelmed compromising our health significantly.
Here are 8 common foods you can include daily to help cleanse your liver naturally.  The primary way in which your body expels metabolic, dietary and environmental acid is via the liver, which detoxifies and cleanses your body by continuously filtering the blood of poisons that enter it through the digestive tract, the skin, and the respiratory system. But when your liver becomes overworked as a result of stress or excessive exposure to acid, your entire system can be thrown off-balance, and your health severely compromised.
Since the liver is also responsible for producing alkalizing bile, another form of detoxification that is metabolically necessary for the breakdown and elimination of metabolic, environmental and dietary acid from your lifestyle.  It is exceedingly important that your liver be properly alkalized with an alkaline lifestyle and diet.
Without a well-functioning liver, your body will be unable to cleanse and detox itself from metabolic and dietary acid, which is a recipe for a health disaster.So here are seven important alkalizing foods you may want to begin incorporating into your diet in order to maintain a healthy alkaline liver.
1.  Onion

2. Garlic
imagesGarlic contains numerous sulfur-containing compounds that are responsible for flushing out dietary and metabolic acid from the body. This bulbous relative of the onion also contains allicin and selenium, two powerful nutrients proven to help protect the liver from acidic damage, and aid it in the detoxification process.
3. Grapefruit
Unknown-2Grapefruit is rich in natural vitamin C and antioxidants, two powerful liver cleansers. Like garlic, grapefruit contains compounds that buffer excess acids. It also contains a flavonoid compound known as naringenin that causes the liver to bind up acids for elimination rather than storing them in the fatty tissues.
4. Green Grasses

Green grasses, like wheat and barley grass are loaded with chlorophyll, a the main molecule in green grasses that buffers excess metabolic and dietary acids.  The increase in chlorophyll from green grasses also helps in detoxing the small bowel and liver and maintaining the alkaline design of the body.
5. Green Vegetables

Leafy green vegetables such as bitter gourd, arugula, dandelion greens, spinach, mustard greens, and chicory also contain numerous cleansing compounds that neutralize heavy metals, which can bear heavily on the liver. Leafy greens also eliminate pesticides and herbicides from the body, and spur the creation and flow of cleansing alkalizing bile.
6. Avocado

Rich in glutathione-producing compounds, avocados actively promote liver health by protecting it against toxic acidic overload, and boosting its cleansing power. Some research has shown that eating one or two avocados a week for as little as 30 days can repair a damaged liver.  Dr. Robert O. Young recommends eating an avocado a day keeps the doctor away.
7. Walnuts
Unknown-4Walnuts, which contain high levels of l-arginine, an amino acid, glutathione, and omega-3 fatty acids, also help detoxify the liver of disease-causing ammonia. Walnuts also help oxygenate the blood, and extracts from their hulls are often used in liver-cleansing formulas.
8. Tumeric

Turmeric, one of the most powerful foods for maintaining a healthy liver, has been shown to actively protect the liver against toxic damage, and even regenerate damaged liver cells. Turmeric also boosts the natural production of bile, shrinks engorged hepatic ducts, and improves overall function of the gallbladder, another body-purifying organ.

A Self-Care to a Self-Cure for Liver Disease


The following is a statement from Scott Jacobs, a pH Miracle –

“I had a fatty liver and now it metabolizes fats like never before! Alkalizing revitalized my liver and other organs and my over all health.

A good friend of mine a few years ago had abnormal enzyme results, after a series of tests on his liver.  They wanted to do a biopsy and more tests. He was severely overweight and the doctor told him he most likely had a fatty liver. He chose to have his stomach stapled he lost quite a bit of weight and gained more than half of it back and still has a fatty liver.

Current medical doctors provide bandaids for liver disease and other symptoms of acidity. There are lifestyle changes that become habits and a new way of life that will reverse all sickness and disease including liver disease.  I know that the pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet works because I was diagnosed with a fatty liver and NOW my liver is healthy.

Two Spices and One Oil Used Daily May Prevent and/or Reverse a Cancerous Condition



  • ¼ teaspoon of turmeric
  • a teaspoon of olive, hemp and/or black seed oil
  • a pinch of black pepper


The preparation of this powerful mixture is very easy. You only have to mix all the ingredients in a cup of alkaline 9.5 pH purified functionally structured water. However, you can combine this mixture with other dishes, but do not cook, add the ingredients to the end of preparation (cooking).

Turmeric is the most effective spice in this mixture with powerful anti inflammatory and antioxidant properties. There is no ingredient in the world that more effectively reduce the inflammation which is always caused by retained or stored metabolic acids in the human body.

The latest research has discovered that turmeric prevents many types of cancerous conditions such as brain cancer, prostate cancer and colorectal cancer. The (permanent or frequent) consumption of this incredible combination will protect you from any cancerous condition and the formation of a protective tumor.

The most problematic thing in taking these three ingredients is to build the daily habit. After a couple of weeks, your body will became addicted and crave these spices and oils and you will only feel and enjoy the health benefits of the healthiest mixture of the 21st century.

Why You Should Never Eat Farmed-Raised Fish

Tilapia has turned into the universal fish in America today. It’s cheap, not “fishy” tasting, boneless and skinless, and is difficult to foul up by overcooking, which is an issue with numerous other fish assortments.

Then again, the tilapia we’re consuming is pretty much totally a cultivated fish, which means you can’t discover wild tilapia in any supermarket or on any restaurant menu. What’s more, the cultivating is generally done on a mechanical scale, with a huge number of fish being collected consistently.
Their food is not common — in the wild, tilapia would consume algae and lake plants, yet the homesteads fill out the fish on GMO corn and soy pellets.
The measure of empowering fish oils in these animals is pretty much non-existent, discrediting the principle motivation behind why fish is so great for us.
Why Farm-Raised Fish is So Bad for You
1. Late Studies have observed that farm-raised Tilapia may cause more aggravation – Farm-raised tilapia has dependably been a prominent hotspot for fish, not just in light of the fact that it is broadly accessible in the US, however it is likewise extremely cheap. Nonetheless, before you stock up on Tilapia, you may need to think about its relationship to aggravation.
Late studies have presumed that consuming Tilapia may decline aggravation that can prompt coronary illness, joint inflammation, asthma and an universe of different genuine wellbeing issues.
Individuals who resort to consuming more fish as an approach to get their dosage of omega-3-unsaturated fats and diminish their danger of heart attack may need to hold off on the farmed-raised fish.
Indeed, researchers have discovered that the incendiary capability of tilapia is far more noteworthy than that of a cheeseburger or pork bacon!
2. Farmed Fish
Farmed fish may have no less than 10 times the amount of cancer bringing on natural poisons contrasted with the wild variety – This can in all probability be credited to the bolsters that are utilized on ranch raised fish. In the event that you recognized what went into the sustains of ranch raised fish you would be alarmed.
Clearly, chicken excrement is one of the primary fixings that go into ranch fish feed. Not just that, the exchange of pig and duck waste to fish farms is additionally an exceptionally normal practice.
3. Farm-bred fish have been found to have high amassing of anti-infection agents and pesticides – Where do farm-bred fish get their anti-microbial?
The packed states of fish farms cause the fish to be more defenseless to infection. To keep them alive, ranch holders offer anti-microbial to the fish to fight off disease. Farm-bred fish are likewise treated with pesticides to battle sea lice.
The pesticides used to treat these fish are deadly to the point that they have been created to slaughter wild salmon that are inadvertently presented to them. These pesticides are likewise inevitably discharged in the sea where they get into the bodies and systems of other marine life.
4. Farm-bred fish likewise have lower levels of solid supplements.
Many of us devour fish, planning to harvest the omega-3 unsaturated fat advantages that accompany it. Then again, did you realize that the omega-3-acids that are found in farm-raised fish are less usable to our bodies contrasted with wild reared fish?
Farm-raised fish likewise have lower protein content. Not just that, on the grounds that farm-raised fish are kept up in pens, they tend to be fattier, and can have a higher convergence of omega-6 acids. The issue with getting an excessive amount of omega-6 acids is that they may cause aggravation to the body because of irregularity.
5. Dioxin levels are 11 times higher in farm-bred fish contrasted with wild fish
Dioxin is an extremely lethal substance that can add to disease and different muddling. The issue with dioxin is that once it enters our system, it can take quite a while until it is let out. The half-life of dioxin is around 7 to 11 years.

A Vegan Plant-Based Diet Proves Most Effective for Weight Loss

A vegan plant-based diet leads to the most weight loss, compared with other dietary patterns, according to a new study in the journal Nutrition. Sixty-three overweight adult study participants were assigned to one of five different dietary patterns for a six-month period: omnivorous, semi-vegetarian, pesco-vegetarian, lacto-ovo vegetarian, and vegan. At the end of the study, the vegan group lost, on average, more than twice the percentage of body weight (7.5 percent), compared with omnivores (3.1 percent), semi-vegetarians (3.2 percent), and pesco-vegetarians (3.2 percent). The lacto-ovo vegetarian group lost an average of 6.3 percentage points. The vegan group also had the greatest reductions in total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol and greatest increase in dietary fiber intake—all protective against chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes.

Maintaining the Alkaline Design of the Body IS THE ONLY IMMUNITY! Education NOT Vaccination! Education NOT Legislation!

The Doctor Who Beat The British General Medical Council By Proving That Vaccines Aren’t Necessary To Achieve Alkaline Health – Vaccines Provide Zero Immunity – Immunity is Achieved by Maintaining the Alkaline Design of the Body Fluids and NOT by Poisoning the Body With Highly Acidic Vaccines!


What happened when a UK doctor appeared as an expert witness to help two mothers prove in court that their children didn’t need to be vaccinated?

A 3 year court case against the British General Medical Council that ended with the doctor accused having all allegations dropped.

Dr. Jayne Donegan, a UK GP, has lived a most fascinating story. It began with her originally being a very strong advocate for vaccinations, but fast forward quite a few years later, and she now not only speaks out against the dangers of vaccinations, but ended up being taken to the General Medical Council with some pretty serious claims by them regarding her professionalism.

After a few stressful years in court against them, Dr. Donegan won her case. But chances are, this is the first you’re hearing of it.

In order for you to get the full account of what happened, it’s best to read her full story. Dr. Donegan gave me her permission to use her account below:

Dr. Jayne Donegan’s Story

Having trained as a conventional medical doctor, qualifying from St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School, University of London, in 1983, all of my undergraduate teaching and postgraduate experience in Obstetrics & Gynecology, Family Planning, Child Health, Orthopedics, Emergency Medicine and General Practice led me to be a strong supporter of the Universal Childhood Vaccination Program. Indeed, I used to counsel parents in the 1980s who didn’t want to vaccinate their children against whooping cough – which was regarded as the ‘problematic’ vaccine in those days.

I used to tell them that there were, indeed, adverse reactions, associated with the vaccine – I was not one of those doctors who would gloss over such unpleasant details – but that we doctors were told that the adverse reactions that might occur after the pertussis vaccine were at least ten times less likely than the chance of getting complications from having the disease, and that, essentially, the point of giving their child the vaccine was to prevent them from getting the disease.

I Used To Think Parent’s Who Don’t Vaccinate Were Either Ignorant or Sociopathic

Indeed, I used to think that parents who didn’t want to vaccinate their children were either ignorant, or sociopathic. I believe that view is not uncommon among doctors today. Why did I have this attitude? Well, throughout my medical training I was taught that the people who used to die in their thousands or hundreds of thousands from diseases like diphtheria, whooping cough and measles – diseases for which there are vaccines – stopped dying because of the introduction of vaccines.

At the same time, I was taught that diseases like typhus, cholera, rheumatic and scarlet fever – for which there are no vaccines – stopped killing people because of improvements in social conditions. It would have been a logical progression to have asked myself why, if social conditions improved the health of the population with respect to some diseases, would they not improve their health with regard to them all, but the amount of information that you are required to absorb during medical training is so huge that you just tend to take it as read and not make the connections that might be obvious to someone else.

It was a received article of faith for me and my contemporaries that vaccination was the single most useful health intervention that had ever been introduced, and when my children were born in 1991 and 1993 I unquestioningly – well, that is to say, I thought it was with full knowledge backed up by all my medical training – had them vaccinated, up as far as MMR, because that was the right thing to do. I even let my 4-week-old daughter be injected with an out-of-date BGC vaccine at a public health clinic.

Out Of Date BCG Vaccine Injured My Child

I noticed (force of habit – I automatically scan vials for drug name, batch number and expiry date) that the vaccine was out of date and said, “Oh, excuse me, it looks like it’s out of date,” and the doctor answered matter-of-factly, “Oh don’t worry, that’s why the clinic was delayed for an hour – we were just checking that it was OK to give it, and it is,” and I said, “OK,” and let her inject it… my poor daughter had a terrible reaction, but I was so convinced that it was all for the best that I carried on with all the rest of them at 2, 3 and 4 months.

No Evidence Of Measles Epidemic

That is where I was coming from – even my interest in homeopathy didn’t dent my enthusiasm for vaccines; so far as I could see, it was the same process – give a small dose of something and it makes you immune – no conflict. So what happened? In 1994 there was the Measles Rubella Campaign in which 7 million schoolchildren were vaccinated against measles and rubella. The Chief Medical Officer sent out letters to all GPs, pharmacists, nursing officers and other healthcare staff, telling us that there was going to be an epidemic of measles.

First it was one MMR shot, then two not THREE?

The evidence for this epidemic was not published at the time. In later years it seems that it was predicted by a complicated mathematical model based on estimates and so might never have been going to occur at all. We were told, “Everybody who has had one dose of the vaccine will not necessarily be protected when the epidemic comes. So they need another one.” “Well, that’s OK,” I thought, “because we know that none of the vaccines are 100percent effective.”

Alarm Bells: Now Three MMR’s Were Needed?

What did worry me, however, was when they said that even those who had had two doses of measles vaccine would not necessarily be protected when the epidemic came and that they needed a third. You may not remember, but in those days there was only one measles vaccine in the schedule. It was a live virus vaccine, so it was like coming in contact with the wild virus, just changed slightly to make it safer and leading to immunity. Since then, of course, the pre-school dose has been added because one dose didn’t work, but in those days there was just “one shot for life.”

And now we were being told that even two shots of a “one shot” vaccine would not protect people when the epidemic came. At this point I began to ask myself, “Why have I been telling all these parents that vaccines are safer than getting the disease and that basically, having the vaccine will stop their children getting the disease – with the risk of complications – it’s not 100 percent, but that’s basically what they’re designed to do – when it seems that they can be vaccinated, have whatever adverse reactions are associated with the vaccine, and still get the disease with whatever complications may be associated with that, even when they’ve had two doses of the “one shot” vaccine? So what was the point? This doesn’t seem right.”

If you are wondering how come anyone would have had two doses of the “one shot vaccine,” it is because when the MMR was introduced in 1988, many children had already been vaccinated against measles, but we were told that we should give them the MMR anyway as it would “protect them against mumps and rubella and boost their measles immunity.” We were also told that the best way of vaccinating was en masse, because this would “break the chain of transmission.” So I thought, “I wonder why we vaccinate all these small babies at 2, 3 and 4 months? Why don’t we just wait two or three years and then vaccinate everyone who has been born in the meantime, and ‘break the chain of transmission’.”

Things Just Didn’t Add Up

So some things just didn’t seem to quite add up. However, it is very hard to start seriously questioning whether or not vaccination is anything other than safe and effective, especially when it is something that you have been taught to believe in so strongly. The more medically qualified you are, the more difficult it is, as in some ways the more brainwashed you are. It’s not easy, or at least it wasn’t then, to start going down a path that might lead you in the opposite direction to all your colleagues and the healthcare system in which you work. I read some books that could be described as “anti-vaccination.”

They contained graphs showing that the majority of the decrease in deaths from and incidence of the infectious diseases for which we have vaccines occurred before the vaccines were introduced in the 1950s and 60s, for example with whooping cough, and in the late 1960s with measles. I decided that I couldn’t just accept what these books were telling me, especially as the message was the opposite to what I had learned up until now. I needed to do some research. The graphs in my textbooks and the Department of Health Immunization Handbook (the Green Book) appeared to show that the introduction of vaccines caused precipitous falls in deaths from vaccinatable diseases.

Collating My Own Vaccine Charts – Why Was It so Hard To Obtain The Information?

I decided that if I were going to seriously question what I’d been taught at medical school and by my professors, I would have go and get the real data for myself. Accordingly, I called the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and asked them to send me the graphs of deaths from the diseases against which we vaccinate from the middle of the nineteenth century, when we started keeping records, until now.

They said, “We don’t have them – except for smallpox and TB; we suggest you try the Department of Health.’” Which I did. They didn’t have graphs from the nineteenth or early twentieth century either. They said, “You’d better try the Office for National Statistics.” “I’ve already tried them,” I said. “They were the ones who advised me to contact you.” It seems to be getting rather circular, so I called up the ONS once again and told them my problem. “Well,” they said, “we have all the books here from when the Registrar General started taking returns of deaths from infectious diseases in 1837; you can come along and look at them if you like.” There was nothing for it.

I had to go the Office for National Statistics (ONS) in Pimlico, London, with my two young children aged 6 and 4 in tow, to extract the information myself. The girls were very good – they were used to traveling/following me around – and the library staff were very nice; they kindly gave my daughters orange juice to drink, and paper and crayons to draw with and amuse themselves, while I pulled out all the mothy old books from 1837 until 1900, after which, thankfully, there was a CD ROM that could be bought at vast expense and taken home.

It was the most user-unfriendly piece of data storage that I have ever come across, but it was better than having to physically be there day after day. So I went home with all my notes and the CD Rom and eventually produced my own graphs. I was startled to find that they were similar to the graphs in some of the books that I had recently read.


People Stopped Dying of Whooping Cough Long Before Vaccine Was Introduced

I was astonished and not a little perturbed to find that when you draw a graph of the death rate from whooping cough that starts in the mid nineteenth century, you can clearly see that at least 99 percent of the people who used to die of whooping cough in the nineteenth and early twentieth century had stopped dying before the vaccine against whooping cough was introduced, initially in the 1950s and universally in the 1960s.

I also realized that the reason the Department of Health’s graphs made the vaccine appear so effective was because they didn’t start until the 1940s when most of the improvements in health had already occurred, and this was before even antibiotics were generally available. If you selected only deaths in under-15-year-olds, the drop was even more dramatic – by the time whooping cough vaccine was part of the universal immunization schedule in the early 1960s all the hard work had been done.

Department of Health’s Own Charts: Not A Good Way Of Showing Changes in Mortality and Disease

I now began to realize that graphs such as those featured in the Department of Health Green Book were not a good or clear way of showing the changes in mortality (death) and morbidity (incidence of disease) that occurred before and after vaccination was introduced against these diseases.

Measles is similar: the Department of Health Green Book features a graph that does not start until the 1940s. There appears to be great drop in the number of cases after the measles vaccine was introduced in 1968, but looking at a graph which goes back to the 1900s you can see that the death rate – death being the worst-case complication of a disease – had dropped by 99 percent by the time the vaccine was put on the schedule.


100% Decline In Measles Deaths Three Years Before Vaccine Was Introduced

Looking specifically at under-15-year-olds, it is possible to see that there was a virtual 100 percent decline in deaths from measles between 1905 and 1965 – three years before the measles vaccine was introduced in the UK. In the late 1990s there was an advertisement for MMR which featured a baby in nappies sitting on the edge of a cliff with a lion prowling on the other side and a voice-over saying, “No loving parent would deliberately leave their baby unprotected and in danger.”

I think it would have been more scientific to have put one of the graphs using information from the ONS in the advert – then parents would have had a greater chance of making an informed choice, rather than being coerced by fear. When you visit your GP or Health Visitor to discuss the vaccination issue, and you come away feeling scared, this is because you are picking up how they feel.

If all you have is the “medical model” for disease and health, all you know is that there is a hostile world out there and if you don’t have vaccines, antibiotics and 100 percent bactericidal hand-wash, you will have no defense at all against all those germs with which you and your children are surrounded. Your child may be OK when they get the measles, but you can never tell when disaster will strike, and they may be left disabled or dead by the random hand of fate. 


Health Is the Only Immunity

I was like that myself, and when the awful realization began to dawn on me that vaccines weren’t all they were cracked up to be, I started looking in a panic for some other way of protecting my children and myself – some other magic bullet. My long, slow journey researching the vaccination disease ecology involved learning about other models and philosophies of health and the gradual realization that it was true what people had told me all along, that “health is the only immunity.”

We don’t need to be protected from “out there.” We get infectious diseases when our body needs to have a periodic clean-out. Children especially benefit from childhood spotty rashes, or “ex anthems” as they are called, in order to make appropriate developmental leaps. When we have fevers, coughs, rashes, we need to treat them supportively, not suppressively.

Standard Medical Treatment Suppresses Symptoms And Causes The Most Harm

In my experience, the worst complications of childhood infections are caused by standard medical treatment which involves suppressing all the symptoms. What is the biggest obstacle to doctors even entertaining the possibility that the Universal Childhood Vaccination Program may not be the unmitigated success that it is portrayed to be? Or that there may be other ways of achieving health that are better and longer lasting? Possibly it is the fear of stepping out of line and being seen to be different – with all the consequences that this can entail, as I know from personal experience.

As George Bernard Shaw says in his preface to “The Doctor’s Dilemma,” 1906 :

Doctors are just like other Englishmen: most of them have no honor and no conscience: what they commonly mistake for these is sentimentality and an intense dread of doing anything that everybody else does not do, or omitting to do anything that everybody else does.

The British General Medical Council Court Case

Here is some very interesting information regarding Dr. Donegan, and why her authority on vaccines should be paid attention to, simply because the medical world actually did. In 2002 Dr. Donegan went to the High Court, as she was involved in a case where two mothers were fighting their ex-partners about their children’s vaccinations. The mothers did not want them to be given to their children –  under any circumstances – for fear of causing irreversible harm, but the fathers did, so a controversial court case ensued.

Dr. Donegan had been writing and speaking publicly about vaccinations and natural ways of keeping children healthy so she was asked to be an expert witness by the two mothers. Dr. Donegan gave her professional opinion that the safety and efficacy of vaccines has not been well studied and that there were other ways of achieving health than vaccination for these children.


The case proved very long and extremely stressful. At times it was under very unfair circumstances where she would be given hardly any time to get documents together, despite the opposition having double the time to prepare theirs.

Junk Science Accusation

Due to the information she was providing in court (which went straight against the typical mainstream medical advice), the Appeal Judges called her evidence “Junk Science” and the GMC (General Medical Council) –  the organization that regulates doctors and tells them how to practice – targeted the doctor herself.

Dr. Donegan ended up being accused of “serious professional misconduct” which could have eventually ended her entire medical career. They served her official papers in 2004, but it took three long years of writing reports and going through hundreds of medical documents and studies before the case was finally heard in 2007. The allegations are below:

“That you (Dr. Donegan):

6a. Gave false and/ or misleading impressions of the research which you relied upon, 6b. Quoted selectively from research, reports and publications and omitted relevant information, 6c. Allowed your deeply held views on the subject of immunisation to overrule your duty to the court and to the litigants, 6d. Failed to present an objective, independent and unbiased view;

7. Your actions in head 6. above were, 7a. Misleading, 7b. In direct contravention to your duty as an expert witness; unprofessional, 7c. Likely to bring the profession into disrepute; And that in relation to the facts alleged by you have been guilty of serious professional misconduct.”

As I am sure you can appreciate reading this, these allegations were incredibly serious. They basically said that the testimony Dr. Donegan provided in court was made up, that she was giving harmful advice, which could damage the entire medical profession and had allowed her personal views to come into the case. 

Over the next three years Dr. Donegan had to prepare her defense, answer letters, go through stacks of evidence and collate documents which made it very difficult to look after her family or carry on her professional life as a doctor. She also had to cope with having her legal team withdraw from the case, six weeks before she was originally due in court.

Scientific “Proof”: Very Different From “Proof” In A Court Of Law

Dr. Donegan then managed to find Mr. Clifford Miller, a lawyer who was exceptionally well-read on the subject of vaccination. Not only was Mr. Miller very good with the law, he was also a scientist, having attained a BSc in physics. He had an in-depth knowledge of the scientific method, what constitutes scientific “proof,” and how this is very different from what is accepted as “proof” in a court of law.  

Dr Donegan and Mr Miller, were very careful of using only medical journal reports and studies as their evidence to support what they were saying. This is very important to remember. 

They only used information from respected medical sources.  

This case had started out with almost impossible odds, yet after almost three years of legal wrangling and a three-week hearing by the GMC panel in Manchester, the GMC came to this conclusion:

The Panel were sure that at no stage did you allow any views that you held to overrule your duty to the court and to the litigants.

You demonstrated to the Panel that your reports did not derive from your deeply held views and your evidence supported this.  You explained to the Panel that your approach in your report was to provide the court with an alternative view based on the material you produced in your references.  That material was largely drawn from publications that were in fact in favor of immunisation.

It was clear from your evidence and the evidence of your witness that your aim is to direct parents to sources of information about immunisation and child health safety to help them to make informed choices.

You told us that there are many books by doctors and others in this and other countries who seriously question vaccination and they cite a lot of history, proofs, and medical papers to support their arguments. You did not use any of those publications because you did not think that the GMC would regard those as satisfactory support or references for your recommendations. You largely used what was available in refereed medical journals.

The Panel is sure that in the reports you provided you did not fail to be objective, independent, and unbiased.

Accordingly, the Panel found that you are not guilty of serious professional misconduct.

The case between Dr. Donegan and the GMC was very much like that of David and Goliath, and was another rare example of David actually winning.

GMC Agreed: Children Do Not Need Vaccines To Be Healthy

I would like you to have a really serious think about this trial – the claims that were made – the eventual outcome and what it might mean about the entire vaccine industry:

  • Dr. Donegan was called upon as a witness to provide evidence that children do not need vaccines to be healthy and that many are unnecessary and unsafe.
  • This brought unwanted attention to her from the British General Medical Council who then took her to court. 
  • During this 3 year trial, she presented her evidence against a very tough opposition involving many QCs and a very expensive legal team, yet Dr. Donegan and her much smaller team WON the case.
  • What do you think it means about the evidence she provided and the fact that this medical council could not prove her wrong? 
  • What does this cause you to think about vaccines now?
  • And what does it make you think about the actual science when presented in a court of law?

Case Results Kept Quiet In The Media

This shocking outcome with its unlikely win – surprise surprise, never really made it into the media.  It should have been on every front page of each newspaper in the world, but of course it wasn’t. With the media being owned/funded by Pharmaceutical companies who have the ability to put pressure on Governments to do what they want, it’s no wonder this landmark win was kept out of the publics view.

When Dr. Donegan was first accused of serious professional misconduct it did of course make it into the papers, but after she won, there was hardly any media attention at all. Yet wouldn’t you think the public deserves to know this outcome?  Wouldn’t you have liked to know about this?  Wouldn’t you also like to know about the dirty tactics used in court against Dr. Donegan?

Dr. Donegan was asked after her GMC enquiry ended, what had she learned from this experience:

Perhaps it is that if a parent says, “I’m worried about the safety of vaccination,” they are told, “You don’t understand, you’re not a doctor.”  However if a doctor says, “I’m worried about the safety of vaccination,” they are told, “We’re charging you with serious professional misconduct… “

More Doctors Tuned to Ultrasound’s Frequency For Diagnosis!

As ultrasound technology has advanced, it has become an increasingly valuable tool for diagnosing and treating many types of injuries and medical conditions. On Oct. 18, hundreds of medical students will come to Stanford to learn how to use it.…

Laleh Gharahbaghian

Laleh Gharahbaghian, who directs the ultrasound program in the emergency department, is seeing more community physicians using ultrasound.

Norbert von der Groeben

In the public eye, ultrasound technology is probably best embodied by the big bedside machines that enable parents to catch a revelatory glimpse of their unborn babies.

Since the 1970s, however, ultrasound has become, quietly and steadily, the Swiss Army knife of health care, with an ever-expanding repertoire of functions, based on the ability of sound waves to travel through the body and bounce back when they hit something. Now the technology has been developed into a high-resolution, often pocket-sized aid for the diagnosis and treatment of many types of injuries and medical conditions.

Ultrasound’s trajectory has been mission creep of the best possible sort.

“You name the condition, and people are trying to diagnose or treat it with ultrasound,” said Pejman Ghanouni, MD, PhD, an assistant professor of radiology at the School of Medicine who employs MRI-guided, high-intensity-focused ultrasound to treat uterine fibroids. One of the main selling points of ultrasound for medical imaging and treatment is its lack of cancer-causing radiation.

Stanford has become a center of diagnostic ultrasound research, education and training. On Oct. 18, the school will host ULTRAfest, a full day of free ultrasound instruction open to any medical student in the country. Experienced clinicians from several medical specialties will serve as teachers. Last year, more than 300 medical students from the western United States participated in the event.

The School of Medicine already has incorporated ultrasound into its anatomy training for first-year students and in its patient-doctor courses for pre-clinical students. The school will soon have a complete, four-year ultrasound curriculum, which will enable students to graduate with ultrasound competency.

The primary goal of ULTRAfest, co-chaired by Laleh Gharahbaghian, MD, clinical associate professor of emergency medicine and director of Stanford Hospital’s emergency department ultrasound program, is to teach how ultrasound can enhance knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology — and, more importantly, how it can improve patient care in ways that Gharahbaghian has seen grow rapidly in the 14 years since she graduated from medical school.

“We use it for everything from head to toe and skin and organs,” she said. “It’s become an essential tool at the bedside we apply to immediately rule out — or rule in — medical conditions.”

Use in emergency medicine

Especially useful in emergency care, she said, is ultrasound’s ability “to help us find out what’s going on with a patient and to treat them appropriately with greater speed and accuracy.”

She said, “We might have a patient, for instance, who is unconscious, incoherent or not speaking a language we know, and we have no idea why the heart rate is up and the blood pressure down.”

Seeing beyond the barrier of consciousness or language is another ultrasound capability, Gharahbaghian said. “Even if a patient’s eyes are swollen shut, you can use ultrasound to quickly detect injury — to see a ruptured eye orbit or to gauge function, like pupillary activity.”

Gharahbaghian first saw this capability when the Stanford Emergency Medicine Program for Emergency Response team took along laptop-based ultrasound devices to care for people injured in the 2010 earthquake that struck Haiti. In the hardest hit areas, the earthquake destroyed most of the standing medical facilities. “In that disaster, when there was no power, when hospitals were completely collapsed and resources were limited, the ultrasound was the only radiological device the team had,” she said.

Last year, Stanford’s emergency department became the treatment center for 55 of the 200 people injured in the July 2013 crash at San Francisco International Airport of an Asiana Airlines Boeing 777. Many passengers spoke little English, and the nature of their injuries was not always immediately apparent. Seatbelts did save lives, but the violent side-to-side movement of the aircraft produced spine and rib fractures, often accompanied by seatbelt-related internal injuries caused by the unusual combination of movements in the crash. Several passengers, initially thought be only mildly injured when examined at the scene, were found, during their initial assessment with ultrasound at Stanford, to have serious internal injuries that needed quick attention.

‘I just fell in love with the technology’

Almost five years ago, a few weeks before William White started his first year of medical school at Stanford, he took a class in ultrasound. “I just fell in love with the technology,” he said, “picking up a probe and looking into the body in real time.” For the next three years, still enamored with ultrasound, White continued as a volunteer assistant for the class. Now he hopes to do a residency in emergency medicine. He is also one of the organizers of ULTRAfest, an event he believes will help ultrasound overcome the unfamiliarity many medical students have with its full range of capabilities. “This current generation is starting to get very familiar with it,” he said. “I think in the future there will be a broader acceptance — and it will be part of the standard for primary care.”

That may still take some time: Fellowships that focus on ultrasound use are now only available through emergency medicine training programs, found mostly at academic medical centers like Stanford Medicine, where both basic science and clinical research is part of ultrasound’s reimagining. It also helps to have an abundance of devices: Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford has 72, still used for prenatal evaluations, but also a key part of physicians’ ability to see and treat complex cardiovascular issues.

Stanford Hospital’s 262 ultrasound devices serve an important role in emergency care, surgical treatments and postoperative care in the ICU. Ultrasound is also essential in other areas, including reproductive endocrinology and infertility, respiratory therapy, orthopaedics, anesthesia, urology, outpatient surgery, mammography, endoscopy, head and neck surgery, diagnostic radiology and cardiovascular care. Stanford’s emergency department has eight laptop-based and three handheld ultrasound devices. Ultrasound is also standard equipment at the Stanford Cancer Center, the Cath-Angio Lab and several nursing units. The Life Flight helicopter also carries ultrasound devices.

The long list of other invasive procedures made less complicated by ultrasound includes endotracheal intubation, fine needle aspiration, interventional radiology procedures, pedicle screw insertion in scoliosis surgery, prostate cancer biopsies and emergency procedures like central venous access. Ultrasound also is a much gentler and quicker screening tool for spotting artery-narrowing plaque than is coronary angiography, and for pre-operative looks at arterial issues before neck surgery.

Less costly

Ultrasound also is relatively inexpensive: Even a refurbished CT scanner with a minimum view capacity is priced at $65,000. New ones start at $90,000. Handheld ultrasounds can cost as little as $7,000; laptop-based devices range from $25,000 to $40,000.

More recently, the use of ultrasound has crossed into another part of the anatomy long thought to be immune to its imaging prowess: the lungs. In the air-filled environment of the lungs, the sound waves that are the basis of ultrasound have nothing to ping against. However, in lungs where disease has produced fluids, ultrasound has proven more accurate than a chest X-ray and faster than CT scan to diagnose common lung conditions, including pulmonary edema, pneumonia and pleural effusions.

Ultrasound devices at Stanford are so highly desired that “it’s not easy to keep spares,” said Harvey Fortune, assistant director of Stanford Health Care’s clinical technology group.

Ghanouni and other Stanford physician-scientists are pushing medical ultrasound to the next level. He and his colleagues, Jaimie Henderson, MD, professor of neurosurgery, and Casey Halpern, MD, assistant professor of neurosurgery, are using high-intensity-focused ultrasound, guided by MRI, to treat essential tremor, a nervous system disorder marked by uncontrollable shaking. The ultrasound heats and destroys specific brain tissue: No anesthesia, no scalp incisions, no burr holes through the skull. Another team of Stanford physicians, which includes radiologists, neurosurgeons, oncologists and physicists, plans soon to conduct an investigatory test of this technology, available only at a handful of medical centers worldwide, to allow drugs to cross the blood-brain barrier for more targeted treatment of brain tumors.

Ultrasound is an essential part of the work of Adam de la Zerda, PhD, an assistant professor of structural biology. In collaboration with Sam Gambhir, MD, PhD, professor and chair of radiology, de la Zerda recently developed and patented a technology called photoacoustic imaging that transforms light waves into ultrasound waves. Its goal is to detect cancer with a resolution that matches CT scanning and MRI.

Quick answers for patients

Viveta Lobo, MD, who completed a fellowship in ultrasound in Stanford’s emergency department and served as an ULTRAfest co-chair, said studies have shown patients feel that doctors using bedside ultrasound spend more time at patients’ bedsides.

Studies also have shown that hospitalized patients who underwent ultrasound scanning were discharged more quickly.

Ultrasound can also provide quick answers, which patients appreciate. “I can tell someone right away that there are no gallstones, or that a woman’s baby is OK,” Lobo said. Even more crucial, she said, “we can see and treat quickly that life-threatening ectopic pregnancy or large pulmonary embolism.”

But ultrasound takes some training to master, Lobo added. “You have to know how to get good images — how to move it around obstacles, like the ribs, to see what you need to see. You have to know how to adjust the settings, just as you do in photography. Then you have to know how to interpret what you’ve seen.”

Gharahbaghian is seeing more and more community physicians, as well as those in outpatient clinics, who are using ultrasound. She hopes that trend continues. “The more we spread the news of how ultrasound helps patients in all clinical settings, the better,” she said.

The Biology of Belief, the Basis of ALL Human Thought and Action

How To Live Beyond 100 Years Healthy and Strong Physically and Mentally!
“In the biology of belief ALL beliefs will result in physical actions which always produces acidic metabolic waste products that are poisonous to the blood, tissues, organs and glands.. If these poisonous acidic metabolic waste products are NOT properly and promptly eliminated through the four channels of elimination (defecation, urination, perspiration, and respiration) they will immediately be deposited in the connective and fatty tissues. As these poisonous acidic waste products build-up in the connective and fatty tissues they will eventually make one sick, tired, fat, under-weight and depressed and eventually lead to irritation, inflammation,  induration, degeneration, pain, suffering and finally premature death.” Dr. Robert O. Young.
Belief is an important word in the teachings of the wise, and it figures prominently in all religions. According to Jesus, a certain kind of belief is necessary to salvation or regeneration, and Buddha definitely taught that right belief is the first and most essential step in the Way of Truth, as without right belief there cannot be right conduct, and he who has not learned how to rightly govern and conduct himself, has not yet comprehended the simplest rudiments of Truth.
Belief as laid down by the Great Teachers, is not belief in any particular school, philosophy, or religion, but consists of an altitude of mind determining the whole course of one’s life. Belief and conduct are, therefore inseparable, for the one determines the other.
Belief is the basis of all action, and, this being so, the belief which dominates the hearts or mind is shown in the life. Every man acts, thinks, lives in exact accordance with the belief which is rooted in his innermost being, and such is the mathematical nature of the laws which govern mind that it is absolutely impossible for anyone to believe in two opposing conditions at the same time. For instance, it is impossible to believe in justice and injustice, hatred and love, peace and strife, self and truth. Every man believes in one or the other of these opposites, never in both, and the daily conduct of every man indicates the nature of his belief. The man who believes in justice, who regards it as an eternal and indestructible Principle, never boils over with righteous indignation, does not grow cynical and pessimistic over the inequalities of life, and remains calm and untroubled through all trials and difficulties. It is impossible for him to act otherwise, for he believes that justice reigns, and that, therefore, all that is called injustice is fleeting and illusory.
The man who is continually getting enraged over the injustice of his fellow-men, who talks about himself being badly treated, or who mourns over the lack of justice in the world around him, shows by his conduct, his attitude of mind, that he believes in injustice. However he may protest to the contrary, in his inmost heart he believes that confusion and chaos are dominant in the universe, the result being that he dwells in misery and unrest, and his conduct is faulty.
Again, he who believes in love, in its stability and power, practises it under all circumstances, never deviates from it, and bestows it alike upon enemies as upon friends. He who slanders and condemns, who speaks disparagingly of others, or regards them with contempt, believes not in love, but hatred; all his actions prove it, even though with tongue or pen he may eulogist love.
The believer in peace is known by his peaceful conduct. It is impossible for him to engage in strife. If attacked he does not retaliate, for he has seen the majesty of the angel of peace, and he can no longer pay homage to the demon of strife. The stirrer-up of strife, the lover of argument, he who rushes into self-defence upon any or every provocation, believes in strife, and will have not to do with peace.
Further, he who believes in Truth renounces himself that is, he refuses to centre his life in those passions, desires, and characteristics which crave only their own gratification, and by thus renouncing he becomes steadfastly fixed in Truth, and lives a wise, beautiful, and blameless life. The believer in self is known by his daily indulgences, gratifications, and vanities, and by the disappointments, sorrows, and mortifications which he continually suffers.
The believer in Truth does not suffer, for he has given up that self which is the cause of such suffering.
It will be seen by the foregoing that every man believes either in permanent and eternal Principles directing human life towards law and harmony, or in the negation of those Principles, with the resultant chaos in human affairs and in his own life.
Belief in the divine Principles of Justice, Compassion, Love, constitutes the right belief laid down by Buddha as being the basis of right conduct, and also the belief unto salvation as emphasised in the Christian Scriptures, for he who so believes cannot do otherwise than build his whole life upon these Principles, and so purifies his heart, and perfects his life.
Belief in the negation of this divine principle constitutes what is called in all religious unbelief and this unbelief is manifested as a sinful, troubled, and imperfect life.
Where there is Right Belief there is a blameless and perfect life; where there is false belief there is sin, there is sorrow, the mind and life are improperly governed, and there is affliction and unrest. “By their fruits ye shall know them.”
There is much talk about, “belief in Jesus,” but what does belief in Jesus mean? It means belief in his words, in the Principles he enunciated and lived, in his commandments and in his exemplary life of perfection. He who declares belief in Jesus, and yet is all the time living in his lusts and indulgences, or in the spirit of hatred and condemnation, is self-deceived. He believes not in Jesus. He believes in his own animal self. As a faithful servant delights in carrying out the commands of his master, so he who believes in Jesus carries out his commandments, and so is saved from sin. The supreme test of belief in Jesus is this: Do I keep his commandments? And this test is applied by St. John himself in the following words: “He that saith. I know him (Jesus), and keepeth not His Commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whose keepeth his word, in him verily is the word of God perfected.”
It will be found after a rigid and impartial analysis, that belief lies at the root of all human conduct. Every thought, every act, every habit, is the direct outcome of a certain fixed belief, and one’s conduct alters only as one’s belief are modified. What we cling to, in that we believe; what we practise, in that we believe. When our belief in a thing ceases, we can no longer cling to or practice it; it falls away from us as a garment out-worn. Men cling to their lusts, and lies, and vanities, because they believe in them, believe there is gain and happiness in them. When they transfer their belief to the divine qualities of purity and humility, those sins trouble them no more.
Men are saved from error by belief in the supremacy of Truth. They are saved from sin by belief in Holiness or Perfection. They are saved from evil by belief in Good, for every belief is manifested in the life. It is not necessary to inquire as to a man’s theological belief, for that is of little or no account, for what can it avail a man to believe that Jesus died for him, or that Jesus is God, or that he is “justified by faith,” if he continues to live in his lower, sinful nature? All that is necessary to ask is this: “How does a man live?” “How does he conduct himself under trying circumstances?” The answer to these questions will show whether a man believes in the power of evil or in the power of Good.  The power of hate or the power of love.
He who believes in the power of Good believes in the power of God, lives a good, spiritual, or godly life, for Goodness is love and love is God, yea, verily may become like God Himself, and he will soon leave behind him all sins and sorrows who believes, with steadfast and unwavering faith, in the Supreme Good, the Supreme Love and the Supreme God.
