#DoctorsSpeakUp Trends on Twitter as Anti-Vaccine Movement Hijacks Hashtag Intended to Combat Misinformation #DoctorsSpeakUp is trending on Twitter because anti-vaxxers have hijacked the hashtag started by doctors. Dr. Zubin Damania, who creates online content under the name ZDoggMD, started the #DoctorsSpeakUp movement to speak out against anti-vaxxers who share misinformation online. The movement was inspired by the backlash and death threats that Dr. Nicole Baldwin received after her TikTok video about vaccines went viral. Dr. Damania wrote on Facebook: “Dr. Nicole Baldwin, a pediatrician who dared to support vaccination on TikTok, drew a coordinated attack from the antivaccine cult including death threats. Here’s why we all should be fighting back with her. #DoctorsSpeakUp.” But the anti-vaccine movement hijacked the hashtag and shared a poster telling its followers to disrupt the doctors by tweeting questions including: “When will #DoctorsSpeakUp that vaccines harm and kill children?” and; “Why won’t #DoctorsSpeakUp that vaccines harm many of their patients?”
Senate leaders: Whose ‘dark money’ is funding anti-vaxxers? Two groups lobbying against stricter requirements on childhood vaccinations are using “dark money” while refusing to follow state transparency rules by not registering with ethics officials, Democratic leaders of the state Senate charged Thursday. Senate President Pro Tempore Martin M. Looney of New Haven, Majority Leader Bob Duff of Norwalk and Sen. Mary Daugherty Abrams, co-chairman of the legislative Public Health Committee, said the groups are engaged in organized fundraising and seem to have spent beyond the $3,000 thresholds for registering as lobbyists with the Office of State Ethics. The anti-vaccination groups Informed Choice Connecticut and Health Choice 4 Action remain secret operations with no public scrutiny, the senators said. A third group, the Connecticut Freedom Alliance, based in Ridgefield, registered with the ethics office this week, but did not indicate a lobbying budget. The groups have attracted thousands of supporters to the Capitol this session, have social media sites and websites, have rented roadside billboard ads and have created stickers and posters.
A Six-in-One Vaccine Associated with Sudden Infant Death… The childhood vaccine schedule in the U.S. features numerous combination vaccines—formulations that bundle multiple antigens for multiple diseases into one injection. Examples of combination vaccines currently given to American children include Merck’s four-component ProQuad vaccine against measles, mumps, rubella and varicella and Sanofi’s five-in-one Pentacel vaccine against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio and Haemophilus influenzae type b. Now, the U.S. is preparing to up the combination vaccine ante still further. At the close of 2018, the FDA approved the nation’s first six-in-one (hexavalent) vaccine—a Merck and Sanofi joint effort called Vaxelis intended for infants at ages two, four and six months. Like hexavalent vaccines given to infants in other countries, Vaxelis combines the five components featured in Pentacel along with Merck’s genetically engineered Recombivax vaccine against hepatitis B (HepB).
Low Stock, High Prices for Coronavirus Supplies Stefan Damian steered his shopping cart, filled with paper towels, toilet paper, and cleaning supplies, to the checkout of a Los Angeles Target store. He and girlfriend, Olga Antal, had hoped to find hand sanitizer, too. But this store, like many others across the country, was sold out Thursday. As the number of coronavirus cases and deaths in the U.S. climb, public health officials are advising people to have enough food, water, and cleaning supplies to sit out a potential 14-day quarantine at home if they are exposed to the virus. Damian and Antal said they made their purchases to be prepared. “Just in case,” Antal said. “You never know.” The advice to get ready has triggered a massive nationwide shopping trip, with shortages widespread and price gouging, especially online, becoming common. People are overbuying and hoarding some supplies like masks, which the CDC and others have repeatedly said are not needed for anyone who is well and should be reserved for medical professionals and others in real need. The hoarding can put those in true medical need of such supplies at risk, experts say. And it’s not clear when certain products, like hand sanitizer, will be back on store shelves.
Coronavirus and the Black Death: We haven’t learned from our past Although some media outlets have begun referring to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus as a “modern plague“, the threat of COVID-19 remains negligible compared with historic outbreaks of plague. The latest World Health Organization report puts the coronavirus death toll at just over 3,000 globally, whereas the Black Death was responsible for the deaths of an estimated 30-50% of Europe’s population in the mid-14th century. The most disturbing similarity between the two lies not in the diseases themselves but in their social consequences. Then, as now, outbreaks were blamed on certain ethnic groups. As far as we know, the Black Death originated in or near China. It then followed pilgrimage routes throughout the Middle East, eventually entering Europe through trade routes from Italy. As with coronavirus, plague outbreaks led to the enforced quarantine of infected households and the creation of specialist task forces that monitored and controlled contagion.But the most alarming similarity between the two is the way the public reacted. During the Black Death in the 14th century, Jewish communities appeared to be dying in fewer numbers than their Christian neighbors. Many saw this as evidence that the Jews were intentionally spreading the disease by poisoning wells, rivers and springs. As a result, Jewish people across Europe were tortured and killed.
Comment of The Day!
Congrats on the diarrhea post.
Special Guest – KC Craichy!
KC is Founder and CEO of LivingFuel, Inc., a leading distributor of superfood nutrition, and author of the best-selling book SuperHealth – 7 Golden Keys to Unlock Lifelong Vitality and his most recent book The Super Health Diet: The Last Diet You Will Ever Need!. Through his work, products and teaching, KC is on a mission to change lives.
The inspiration for success began with past health challenges of KC’s wife, Monica, former Miss Florida and Miss Florida USA, who looked like the model of health on the outside but on the inside it was a different story. KC also had early struggles of being overweight and out of shape. Monica’s experiences of anxiety, fear, panic and depression more than 14 years ago and the futility of conventional medical approaches (drugs, psychotherapy) led KC to vow to find an answer. Through years of research and trial and error, Monica has gained back complete health and her vibrancy. Monica has not taken any medication since deciding to find the answer and today she and KC have five wonderful children.
KC wrestled with a challenge of his own: he was overweight. In high school, he discovered the power of proper nutrition which led to a life of research and understanding. He began to unlock the keys to maximum performance and metabolism and since has spent his adult life as a health-conscious athlete, forging a vision to develop a new approach to healthy living. It’s a simple, no-nonsense strategy that aims to help people of any age look, feel and live better.
The Healing Revolution with Dr. Frank King!
RSB personally endured over 10 years of allergy injections, plus just about every OTC and prescription drug on the market to deal with his chronic allergies while growing up in a medical family. It was not until he discovered homeopathy that his life changed for the better and is now allergy free for the last 26 years! Dr. King has developed some powerful, yet easily accessible techniques to reduce the severity of your allergic responses while you work to undo what has brought them about.
Join the Healing Revolution by reading Dr. King’s book about the 8 Essentials to life and health!
The King Bio Journey
In my early 20s, my aging father put me in charge of the farm. My passion for all things natural was growing by leaps and bounds, so I converted our operations to an organic, biodynamic farm.
Meanwhile, my enthusiasm for the healing arts grew. I read everything I could about natural foods and health. I went to hear a crazy eighty-year-old man named Dr. Paul Bragg speak, and he exploded my old-age stereotypes! A few years later, I was astounded to hear that he reportedly died from complications received from a surfing accident. In his 80s!
These were my days of discovery, as I learned how detrimental many aspects of the Industrial Revolution and the so-called advances of modern science and technology have been to human health. I began to see a need for another kind of revolution.
I still remember the day in 1975 when I decided to become a healer instead of a farmer. I soon obtained two degrees: Doctor of Chiropractic and Naturopathic Doctor. In 1979, I established a multi-practitioner natural health clinic.
People drove from miles around to visit our clinic that was located in the spacious house my father had built on our farm. We gained a reputation for catching people who were at the end of their ropes, whose challenging symptoms left other doctors scratching their heads.
“Specializing in Difficult Cases” became the tag line on our business cards. We were passionate about finding the root causes of illness, rather than simply treating symptoms. We also helped pet owners by giving chiropractic adjustments and natural remedies to dogs, cats, horses, buffalos and even chickens.
Meanwhile, I developed new approaches to natural health care, including pure water-based homeopathic medicines. In 1989, I established King Bio, an FDA-registered company that researches, manufactures and sells natural homeopathic products. King Bio soon expanded into six brands: Dr. King’s Natural Medicine, Natural Pet Pharmaceuticals, Natural Veterinary Pharmaceuticals, SafeCareRx, Safecare and Aquaflora products.
Do You Suffer from Seasonal Allergies?
If so, you’ve come to the right place. Dr. King has been helping people overcome allergies naturally for more than 40 years.
Allergies are increasing worldwide, and scientists think it could be due to rising pollen counts from climate change.
But there’s another reason you may not have considered: the Industrial Revolution.
It brought mankind many modern products and conveniences, but it also brought many pollutants.
There are now more than 80,000 man-made chemicals circulating in the air, water, soil, and food. They are in products we use every day. Some are known to be toxic, but most have never been tested for safety.
Toxins and Allergies are Inseparable!
Toxins are cumulative, and they build up in the tissues of living organisms (like us) through years and decades. No matter how clean a lifestyle we live, we all carry toxins. (Even unborn babies and wild polar bears carry hundreds of toxins within them!)
Many toxins damage internal organs, and make it more difficult for the body to detoxify itself. Consequently, immune systems have become weaker, which causes more hay fever and allergic reactions, as well as inflammation and many chronic conditions.
From Victim to Victor
It may seem hopeless, this unavoidable toxic assault of all life on Earth, but it’s not. We had the Industrial Revolution … and now The Healing Revolution® is here to help!
The most remarkably simple and effective way to eliminate the symptoms of both allergies and toxicities is through homeopathic medicine.
For more than 200 years, homeopathy has continuously proven itself around the world as a safe, natural solution to ailments of all types, including allergies and detoxification. And it does so gently, without drastic changes to your diet and lifestyle.
Homeopathy awakens the body’s natural ability to overcome symptoms at the root cause. And best of all, it’s safe for all ages, causes no known negative side effects, and has no contraindications.
Regional Allergies Map
Our Regional Allergies products provide temporary relief from commonly experienced allergy symptoms, such as: itchy and watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing, sore throat, sinus congestion, cough, stuffy nose, fatigue, itchy and irritated skin, hoarseness, and headache.
It’s simple really: Where you live will determine which allergens will affect you. If you live on the border of two regions, you may be affected by allergens in both. You may also have residual effects from the area you lived previously or were born in. In either case, consider combining formulas for greater effectiveness.
Remember Friends, The Power to Heal is Yours!
