Autoimmune/Inflammatory Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants (ASIA) – Aluminium in Vaccines


In 2011, a new syndrome termed ASIA was defined pointing to the spectrum of the immune-mediated diseases triggered by an adjuvant stimulus. There are many different kinds of adjuvants, such as mercury, aluminium, as well as infectious components that may also have an adjuvant effect.

According to the definition, an adjuvant is a pharmacological or immunological agent that modifies the effect of other agents. Adjuvants are added to boost the immune response in a vaccine, to produce more antibodies.

An adjuvant in the vaccine sounds a good thing, but no it is not always good for some children. Rather, an adjuvant can seriously damage a child’s immune system. If an adjuvant crosses the blood-brain barrier it can cause damage to the central nervous system. A child may suffer from seizures, anxiety disorder, depression, autism, hyperactivity disorder and many other behavioural, psychological and mental disorders. It is a well-established scientific fact that there is a two-way cross-talk between the immune system and the brain, that plays a crucial role in immunoregulation as well as with the function of the brain [1].

By the time children are 4 to 6 years old, in some developed countries, they receive a total of 126 antigenic compounds along with the high amount of aluminium (Al) adjuvants in the vaccines. Most of the vaccines which are administered to the children are not tested for their toxic effects and safety assessments are not carried out because vaccines are not considered as inherently toxic [1].

Although aluminium is a neurotoxin, during a critical period of brain development young children are repeatedly injected with high quantities of aluminium adjuvant from multiple vaccines. This may lead to neurodevelopmental disorder. During postnatal development, a young child’s brain is more permeable to toxins and kidneys are less able to eliminate them. Therefore, young children are at a greater risk than adults of having adverse reactions from aluminium adjuvants in vaccines. Just 2 – 3 immune adjuvants are enough to override the genetic resistance to immunity [1].

Aluminium adjuvants have same immune-stimulating properties in the vaccines as of autoimmune/inflammatory diseases such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis, type 1 diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus, and autism spectrum disorder [1].

Macrophagic myofasciitis (MMF) is a debilitating disease that occurs in some unlucky people after receiving an aluminium-containing vaccine. Aluminium in vaccines may collect from the site of the injection or circulate in the blood, travel to other cells and lymph nodes and thus accumulates in distant organs such as the spleen and the brain [2]. MMF sufferers have symptoms including chronic fatigue, muscle weakness, joint pain, cognitive dysfunction affecting memory and attention, sleep disturbances and disabling headaches. Nearly 20% of patients of MMF develop autoimmune disease [3]. A very interesting yet alarming fact is this, MMF disease can be induced in mice, rats and monkeys by injecting them with the same vaccines, which are given to young children.

There are numerous studies which say aluminium in vaccines can cause autoimmune disorders [4]. Aluminium in vaccines has also been linked to conditions such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis, systemic lupus, Gulf war syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, MME, granuloma formation and allergic reactions [5].

Several adjuvants exist in the vaccines, each with specific mechanism, and none of these adjuvants is tested on children before introducing in the vaccine. These adjuvants have the capacity to alter the immune response and risk adverse effects. Therefore, adjuvants in the vaccines such as aluminium and oil-in-water emulsions may cause autoimmune diseases [6].

Vaccine damage due to adjuvants in the vaccines can be reversed with detoxification agents,  specific homeopathic remedies and proper use of supplements [7].

Gallbladder Removed – Great relief for the time being, but bad for the rest of your life!


If you are suffering due to stones in your gallbladder, most probably after some time, when all treatments have failed, your doctor would advise you to surgically remove your gallbladder. How simple is it for your doctor to pass this noxious advice to you! But it would be you who will suffer throughout your life after losing a vital organ.

Gallbladder and its function?
The gallbladder is a small pouch-like organ that resides underneath the liver. It stores bile. Bile is a liquid produced by the liver, to help digest fats. Through bile ducts, bile passes from the liver to the gallbladder. Bile ducts are a series of channels. Besides this, the gallbladder also performs key tasks such as:
• Enabling absorption of fat-soluble antioxidants and vitamins A, E, D and K.
• Assisting the removal of cholesterol from your body.
• Assisting your body to remove the toxins that have been broken down by the liver.

Role of bile in the digestion of fats:
Bile is stored in the gallbladder. Over time it becomes concentrated, which makes it better at digesting fats efficiently. The gallbladder releases bile into the digestive system when it is needed.
Gallstones are small stones usually made up of cholesterol that form in the gallbladder. When the chemical makeup of bile, inside the gallbladder, is disturbed, gallstones are made. In most cases, the level of cholesterol is too high in the bile which causes excess cholesterol to form stones.

In most cases, these stones do not cause any symptoms and do not need treatment (not needing any treatment is the wrong medical approach). However, when a gallstone is trapped in a duct inside the gallbladder, it can trigger sudden intense pain. This painful sensation may last from 1 – 5 hours, is called biliary colic.

Some people get complications due to gallstones such as persistent pain, jubilance or fever; this is due to inflammation of the gallbladder. This condition is called gallbladder disease or Cholecystitis.
Imagine your gallbladder is removed on the advice of your doctor. No more gallbladder, no more stones, no more pain BUT your body will no longer be able to digest fats. Your body will not be able to absorb fat-soluble vital antioxidants vitamin A, E, D & K. Your body will not be able to remove toxins. Ask your doctor which pharmaceutical drug can give you so that you can digest fat after eating food or drinking milk etc. or to support your body to perform vital tasks mentioned above? Your doctor has nothing in his medicine chest. This is a case of “out of the frying pan into the fire”.

Common-sense is not very common these days!

If your medical doctor had been intelligent enough, he would have tested your cholesterol level at regular intervals after having your initial case history and parental medical history. In this way by keeping your cholesterol level at bay, your chances of having gallstones could have been minimised. Remember, I have said if your doctor is intelligent. But never mind common-sense is not very common these days!
Don’t worry! You can survive without your gallbladder, but you are exposed to the risk of developing fatty liver, experiencing frequently indigestion issues, and suffering from deficiencies in essential fatty acids and fat-soluble nutrients.
Your liver continues to manufacture bile, but there is no longer a gallbladder to store it or concentrate it. Therefore, bile continually slowly drops down into the intestines. If you eat a fatty meal, you will not be able to secrete ample amounts of bile into your intestines, therefore the fat will be very poorly digested. This means you will experience symptoms of diarrhoea, bloating, nausea or indigestion.


Due to not digesting fat, you will not be able to digest essential fatty acids, including Omega 3 and Omega 6 as well. You’ll have a hard time absorbing fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamins D, E, A and K. There are a lot of fat-soluble antioxidants in vegetables: lycopene, lutein and carotenoids are all fat. In the absence of adequate bile, you will not be absorbing enough of these lifesaving compounds from foods. If you consider taking any of the above-mentioned nutrients in supplement form, without sufficient bile you will not absorb them well.

Treatment Options:
Don’t worry if your medical doctor is helpless after your cholecystectomy (surgery to remove the gallbladder). There are numerous options in Complementary & Alternative Medicines (CAM) practice. You can still manage to live a normal healthy life. Speak to your nutritionist, homoeopath, naturopath, microDNA therapist or orthomolecular medicines practitioner now. These are the people who you need most, and who will help you the most. In fact, speak to a practitioner at Mind-Body Clinic for further help and support.
In this regard several Homeovitality remedies can be very helpful including Vital Energy – to boost energy levels, Super CareD – to utilise effectively vitamin D in the body, MR7 – to combat acidic conditions etc.

Use of Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid) as a Prophylactic in Coronavirus


Vitamin C is a vital nutrient for human beings. Our bodies cannot make vitamin C, therefore we always have to fulfil our need of vitamin C from other sources, such as green leafy vegetables, berries, guavas, citrus fruits, tomatoes, melons, papayas, kiwi, bell peppers, broccoli, kale or from supplement form of vitamin C etc.

Coronavirus


Coronaviruses are a family of viruses which cause viral infections in animals or among humans.  In humans, coronaviruses are known to cause viral infections ranging from the common cold to respiratory infections and more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The most recently discovered coronavirus in Wuhan China causes coronavirus disease COVID-19.

Diabetes Type 2


Diabetes type 2 also known as diabetes mellitus, is a disease when either patient’s body cannot make enough insulin or body cells do not react to insulin (also known as insulin resistance). Diabetes type 2 is part of metabolic syndrome, that can increase the chances of a patient suffering from diabetes type 2, to have other disease conditions such as heart disease, hypertension, and stroke.

Pain & More Pain – Arthritis


It is said no pain no gain. But this is not true in case of arthritis. Arthritis patient suffers painful episodes in a miserable way. There are 100 different forms of arthritis but two major types are Osteoarthritis (OA) and Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), other common forms include fibromyalgia, gout and psoriatic arthritis etc. All forms of arthritis can cause pain in different ways.

Natural Fertility Aid for Him & for Her


To have offspring is a natural desire among all living beings. In the United Kingdom, 1 in 7 couples may have difficulty in conceiving [1]. In the United States, according to the Centre for Disease Control (CDC), 10% of women between the ages of 15 – 44 years have difficulty becoming pregnant or staying pregnant. About one-third of infertility cases are caused by fertility problems in women, and another one-third of fertility problems are due to fertility problems in men. The other cases are caused by a mixture of male and female problems or by problems that cannot be determined [2].
