Flu Vaccination Brought On Asthma And High Blood Pressure

On The Bad Effects Of  Vaccination

For a start, the flu vaccination, in this case, brought about a bad dose of flu the very next day – the very thing the flu vaccination was meant to prevent!


Immunization  Has Debilitating Effects For Some People:  This is a story about how vaccination caused influenza, asthma and high blood pressure in a person immediately after she had a flu injection. 

If only she had known about the effectiveness of Homeopathic Arsen Alb., she may have been spared the consequences of the flu jab.  Read:

There is much literature around on the bad effects of vaccination.  The debate is still a very hot one, with drug companies and much of the medical profession pushing to keep those vaccinations going.

Antibiotics used in vaccination programmes are incredibly large money-earners for the drug-pharmaceutical industry, as well as the medical profession,  and so, like the tobacco story, it can be a very difficult thing persuading people that vaccinations can be harmful, because so much money is spent on propaganda in favour of vaccination or immunization.

These big organizations manage to get institutions such as the FDA alongside, who then pressure for mass vaccinations to be  made mandatory.  Even WHO, the ‘World Health Organization’, in tow with the pharmaceutical companies, go about the world vaccinating thousands upon thousands of people in those underdeveloped countries where they are least likely to find resistance.  Programmes like these bring in massive profits for the drug companies.

However – This is not working out for them so well in Pakistan at the moment, where the Teleban are cracking down on the vaccination programmes being run there by WHO.  The Teleban, and many other Pakistani people,  are suspicious that the vaccines might cause infertility, among other things, and quite rightly so, in my opinion.  Read my post entitled: Fake Vaccinations So Teleban Kill Polio Workers In Pakistan which has a bit more on this story.  See also some of my other posts on the subject of Vaccination and Vaccination Alternatives:

And now – For the story on how immunization for flu weakened the immune system, bringing on asthma and high blood pressure, amongst other things:

I have just met a lady who has been made very ill from having a routine flu injection.  Four years ago, she and her husband went in to get their ‘flu shots’.  That year nothing unusual happened.

But the following year, just before going on holiday to Australia in 2010,  they decided to get their flu vaccinations done to ensure they did not catch anything while they were away.  They got their vaccinations done three years ago this April.

On this occasion, the flu vaccination caused a health crisis in this woman’s life.  Her husband did not have any trouble with the vaccine, apparently, although I have not spoken to him.

The first adverse reaction to the flu vaccine was to immediately get a bad dose of the flu.  My friend became suddenly very ill with the flu the following day after having the vaccination.

After she recovered from the flu, she found she had developed asthma, which she had never ever experienced in her life before.

The asthma grew worse.  By the time they had gone over to Australia on their holiday, she was in dire straits with the asthma, and had to be hospitalized.  Her blood pressure had also soared, when she had not had a blood pressure problem before.

Her blood pressure was suddenly dangerously high – 180 over 120.

After being discharged from the hospital in Australia, they returned to New Zealand, whereupon she went back to the doctor to complain about the effects of the vaccination.  This doctor dismissed the idea of vaccination being the cause of her demise in health.  He said her sudden bad health had nothing at all to do with the vaccination for flu.

But she had become IMMEDIATELY ill with the flu after having the vaccination, and the flu was followed on by asthma and extremely high blood pressure, as well as a feeling of lethargy and depression.  My friend did not believe the doctor at all. She changed her doctor right away to one who has been helping her to gradually reduce all the medications she has been put on to manage the asthma and hypertension.

Incidentally, she has found that her blood pressure problem has improved greatly with the addition of magnesium to the diet.  She has almost weaned herself off the high blood pressure medication.  Her new doctor supports her attempts to reduce her high blood pressure through natural means.

The first doctor who ignored her complaints about the flu injection, insisting that the flu injection had not caused any demise in health, is typical of many doctors who support the pharmaceutical industry:  They refuse to acknowledge any harmful effects of their vaccinations.

It is not compulsory for doctors to keep a record of the bad effects of vaccination.   I wonder why?  It is obvious.   Ignoring the harmful effects of vaccinations means that the proof against vaccinations remains hidden.  This is very convenient for the drug companies, because there is no register kept which lists just how many people suffer ill effects from vaccinations or immunizations, and there is no record kept of the type of illnesses which people succmb to after having vaccinations done.

Which is why I keep writing these articles up – in an attempt to help disseminate information which might antidote the potentially harmful propaganda which is continually churned out by the drug companies and much of the medical profession.

Link Between Vaccinations And Obesity New Study Suggests BBC 22 August 2012

Antibiotics Given To Young Children Can Cause Them To  Be Heavier When Older:

BBC News gave us this report on the new-found link between Antibiotics and Weight-gain at around 2 AM New Zealand time on the 23 August 2012.  This information will be included  within the context of this article.

The question of whether or not antibiotics and vaccines affect the health of our children is a hot debate, and has been for a long time now.

There is the question of whether or not vaccinations can cause autism – and there are many parents today, including some doctors,  who believe that their children, who were healthy before vaccination, developed autism after being vaccinated.

Then there is the question of whether or not vaccinations are really effective, and how long a vaccination will protect a person for.

Merrilyn’s new book is available on Amazon:


The trouble with administering antibiotics willy-nilly to our children is that, in most cases, we won’t know about any negative effects of these drugs until our children are grown up…… when the damage may have been done.

In time, the original vaccinations may have a negative effect on your child’s health, and giving boosters, which seems to be a current trend in some communities, might even make these problems much more acute.

The BBC report said that new research points to antibiotics  as having a marked effect on weight when they are given to very young children.     Vaccinations, which are antibiotics given for the purpose of preventing a disease before it occurs, may in fact  cause obesity in later life.

The research so far shows that  children who had been given antibiotics between birth and the age of five months had an increased weight  between the age of 10 and 20 months. After the age of 2 years, after receiving antibiotics/vaccinations during the first five months of life,  22% of the children are likely  to be overweight.

Exposure To Antibiotics Affects Healthy Bacteria:  This may not be news to those already aware of the damage caused by antibiotics to the necessary microbes which exist in the body.  However, it is welcome news from BBC that scientists have ‘come out’ with the idea that antibiotics do affect healthy bacteria, and that this disruption may even cause obesity.

Scientists say in this new research said that the reason for antibiotics  affecting the weight is because digestion is affected:  Antibiotics and vaccine antibiotics too, affect the healthy bacteria in the body, most importantly, in the stomach, and in the bowel where the absorption of food takes place.  Antibiotics also affect the microbes on our skin, and these microbes, which outnumber the body’s number of cells, is also of interest to scientists studying body metabolism.  This new study is thought to be the first census taken of microbes living on the surface of the body.

Scientists are even experimenting with the idea of faecal transplants, to give back to the body some of the bacteria which antibiotics have taken away.  Faecal transplants have been done with the idea of regenerating the healthy bacteria in the gut. This idea seems very strange:  Why not abandon standard vaccinations which are so problematic to the health, and use homeopathic and herbal and vitamin alternatives instead to counteract the childhood illnesses?  These alternatives do not interfere with the important microbes living in the body, which makes them a safer option.

The trouble is that these modalities, especially homeopathy, are jealously guarded by the pharmaceutical companies who want to remain dominant in the field of medicinal drugs.  These alternative remedies are not given a chance to prove themselves in the orthodox arena of medicinal drugs.

Back to the research on Antibiotics:

The International Journal of Obesity published the findings of a study of 11,532 infants.  This study showed that when these children were given antibiotics under the age of six months, they were likely to be heavier than normal in later years.

So weight gain may be a product of using antibiotics. especially when they are given at a young age, because of their interference with normal bowel function and digestion.

However, they say more work is needed to confirm there is a link.
In this study, children who had antibiotics between birth and the age of five months were slightly heavier between the age of 10 and 20 months. After 38 months they were 22% more likely to be overweight.

Dr Leonardo Trasande from New York University School of Medicine, said that unhealthy diet and lack of exercise were the common factors given as the cause of obesity,  “yet increasingly, studies suggest it’s more complicated”.

Dr Leonardo Trasande said that “Microbes in our intestines may play critical roles in how we absorb calories, and exposure to antibiotics, especially early in life, may kill off healthy bacteria that influence how we absorb nutrients into our bodies, and would otherwise keep us lean.”  Note: This theory is NOT a new one, but it is good to see the orthodox medical people acknowledging that this is so.

Microbiologist Dr Cormac Gahan, from University College Cork, said  that weight could be affected when the balance of gut bacteria is changed…..that this could have ‘”a direct effect on energy extraction” or by ‘”influencing hormones”.

He indicated that there was more work to be done in the area before definite conclusions could be drawn.

Many naturopaths and alternative doctors have had similar theories for years:  There is much written by such alternative medics and natural practitioners which state that antibiotics cause too much havoc in the system to warrant their extensive use during childhood.
