MMR and autism

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on December 13, 2013

Mike Adams at Natural Health News is one of these over the top, instant hysteria advocates for natural health – some caution always needs to be paid to his views. However, he provides an excellent information service. here is an extract from a recent article on the MMR controversy containing some useful links:

You can watch a full interview between Dr. Wakefield and Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, in which Dr. Wakefield shares his side of the story concerning his study here:

If this is not enough, an IOM report released last year openly admits that MMR can cause vaccine-induced measles, febrile seizures, anaphylaxis, and transient arthralgia in women and children, which make it far from the safe vaccine that authorities claim it is. ( And an Italian court recently ruled that MMR indeed triggered autism in a young boy who developed severe bowel problems and various autism spectrum disorders, including the inability to speak, after receiving the MMR.

Not just cancer! – Alzheimer’s and vitamins

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on December 10, 2013

Here is a quote from a story about Alheimer’s and Dementia:

“The failure to take the likes of diet, exercise and supplements seriously is very galling because at Oxford we’ve shown it’s possible to slow down the Alzheimer’s type brain shrinkage with B vitamins costing pennies a day. Yet scientists still regularly claim there is no way to modify the progression of this ghastly disease. What they mean is there’s no drug to do that. A senior scientist with a pharmaceutical company made this very clear when he spoke to me after I’d given a talk about my research. He described the result as ‘phenomenal’, adding: ‘If it had been a drug, it would be worth billions’. For the sake of all of us, and our families, ignoring all sorts of possible treatments just because they won’t make billions can’t go on.” David Smith is Emeritus professor of pharmacology at Oxford University and founder of the research project OPTIMA (Oxford Project to Investigate Memory and Ageing)–prevent-instead-One-Britains-dementia-experts-says-weve-wasted-BILLIONS-useless-drugs.html

The problem is inflammation

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on July 9, 2013

Could it be that heart disease and cancer are both caused by the same thing? I’m talking inflammation. We should all know by now that cancer is a disease of inflammation – now it seems that heart disease has the same cause – and the toxins that are creating the problems are the diets that are typically recommended by your doctor. Here is the full article – definitely worth reading.

Diet, Mental Health, and Madness in the medical and Educational Systems

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on June 20, 2013

The rise in autism and the associations with diet suggest – to me at least – that as soon as a woman finds herself pregnant she should only eat organic foods and drink only filtered water. I believe a lot of the damage occurs in the womb. Here is a link to Mercola’s take on the problem – and it’s worth reading the comments too (below the article)

Coffee, tea – and stroke

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on March 15, 2013

Coffee is often thought to be bad while tea is good – but new research is suggesting they are both good – for different reasons – at helping reduce the risk of stroke. Here’s the full article

Cellulosis – natural cures

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on September 18, 2011

Cellulosis is an inflammatory condition that is extremely dangerous and fast moving. The first time I got it a few years ago it was sorted out by anti-biotics. Then earlier this year it suddenly struck again and although I thought I had it under control I hadn’t – back to hospital and for a week I had to attend to get massive doses of their top anti-biotic. Then I went on a second antibiotic for a few weeks but that still didn’t eliminate the problem and there was still an area of sensitivity between the calf and ankle. A third antibiotic did very little – except by now by bowel movements were completely blown – still not really back to where they should be five months on – and still the problem seemed to be simmering. Then three or four days ago I woke up to find long livid lines of inflammation racing up my leg. This time I remembered MMS and colloidal silver (which I both drink and rub on the skin) and a mix of DMSO, lavender oil and sodium bicarbonate which I rubbed on the affected area. I also used a cheap nappy rash cream containing zinc oxide. Varying these approaches I seemed to have tamed it again – though as I write it is not wholly contained. With the nappy rash cream I first prime my leg with DMSO so that it will take the zinc oxide into the lymph and muscle. The leg is definitely feeling much better but it seems this is a problem I am now going to have to live with. The idea of being hospitalised for d

ays/weeks on end does not appeal – but that could be the alternative, if I don’t keep it fully controlled.

Preventing strokes

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on June 17, 2011

For cancer information browse this site and read my books –

Prevention of stroke

There are two kinds of stroke: haemorrhagic and ischemic. Haemorrhagic occurs when a blood vessel breaks. To protect against this kind of stroke you need to ensure that your body’s tissues are strong – and that mean taking in large doses (3,000 mg plus) of vitamin C (ascorbic acid or sodium ascorbate powder) per day.

Life Extension explains: “Ischemic stroke is responsible for 80 percent of all strokes (NINDS 2005). There are two kinds of ischemic stroke. The first, a thrombotic stroke, results from a blood clot (thrombus) forming in a vessel inside the brain and cutting off the blood supply to the tissues served by that vessel. The second, an embolic stroke, occurs when a clot forms somewhere else in the body, breaks off, and travels to the brain.”

My own recommendations

• A strong (ie very hot) cayenne pepper tincture (150,000 scofield units) I make my own by putting a handful of hot pepper in a litre of standard vodka

• Olive oil (cold pressed, extra virgin) – for cooking as well as salads, sauces etc

• Ginger – fresh ginger soaked in hot water

Other recommendations from Life Extension (

• L-arginine—1800 to 9000 milligrams (mg) daily

• Acetyl-L-carnitine—1000 mg daily

• Propionyl-L-carnitine—1000 mg daily

• Vinpocetine—15 to 25 mg daily

• CDP-choline—250 mg daily

• Potassium—99 mg daily or more, based on blood test results

• Calcium—1200 to 1500 mg daily, with 800 international units (IU) vitamin D3

• Magnesium—500 mg daily

• Omega 3 (from fish oil)—1400 mg daily EPA and 1000 mg daily DHA

• CoQ10—100 to 200 mg daily

• Green tea—725 mg daily. A decaffeinated form is available for people sensitive to caffeine.

• Beta-carotene—10,000 to 25,000 IU daily

• Vitamin C—2000 mg daily

• Vitamin E—400 IU daily (alpha tocopherol) and 200 mg daily gamma tocopherol)

• NAC—600 mg daily • Garlic—600 to 1200 mg daily

• Selenium—200 micrograms (mcg) daily

• Vitamin B6—250 mg daily

• Vitamin B12—300 to 500 mcg daily

• Folate (folic acid)—800 mcg daily

• DHEA—15 to 75 mg daily, followed by blood testing at 3 to 6 weeks to make sure optimal blood levels are maintained
