It is not the amount of additives, preservatives, viruses, bacterias, or anything else in vaccines that cause such severe reactions in certain people.  As you will see, it is all about the combination of them.  In order to really know why, you have to have a grasp about a type of science that you were most likely not taught in school, and that doctors are not going to tell you about. 

FACT #1: 

The ways in which Western medicine have approached the body as separate systems (i.e. respiratory, digestive, circulatory, reproductive, etc.) have limited us in being able to understand why vaccines affect various people the ways that they do. The allopathic approach to health ignores the fact that our bodies are complex systems, which do not adhere to the rules of Classical physics.

Here are some characteristics of complex systems:

  • They are non-linear, complex and adaptive systems made up of many interconnected parts, which behave as a unified whole.

  • These connected parts are constantly adapting to their environment through feedback information.

  • A complex system is more than the sum of its parts.

  • A complex system’s behavior cannot be predicted by examining the individual parts alone.

  • Complex systems exhibit emergence, creating new outcomes as they go through changes and interact within themselves and with everything else in their environment.

  • In complex systems, the examination of the parts produces an incomplete understanding of the whole.  

In Classical physics, which works great to explain how things work in mechanical systems, very small influences on a system are not viewed as very important because their effects are not noticed as connected to anything else. Dr. Carol Ormand, Geoscience Education Associate, Science Education Resource Center, Carleton College writes: “Metastability describes a system that is in a delicate state of equilibrium – a state where a small change in conditions may precipitate a major change in the system. The chaotic nature of complex systems – and particularly their sensitivity to initial conditions – means that they are often either not in equilibrium or are metastable.”

FACT #2:  

Fractals are structures, which exhibit self-similarity. One small change to any part of the body will result in changes throughout. This is because our DNA is fractal in nature, and whatever is done in some of our cells, will have an effect upon the rest in some way.

Without this understanding of how our bodies are actually designed and functioning, we can easily become confused when pharmaceutical companies, governments, and medical professionals insist that there are no connections between the illness and suffering we and our children experience and vaccines.  However, our power lies in knowing the truth about ourselves.  

FACT #3:  

Synergistic toxicity refers to the effect of two chemicals on an organism that is greater than the effect of each chemical individually, or even the sum of the individual effects. In other words, the presence of one chemical enhances the effects of the second - and the effects are unstable and unpredictable.

Dr. Kenneth Bock makes reference to synergistic toxicity in his book, Healing The New Childhood Epidemics:

"I have termed the new childhood epidemics ‘The 4-A Disorders.’ They include autism, ADHD, asthma and allergies. Over the past two decades, autism has increased 1500%, ADHD 500%, asthma 300% (with asthma deaths increasing by 56%) and allergies 700%.  These are staggering statistics, and these meteoric increases demand explanations.

This concomitant rise is not coincidence.  All of these disorders appear to be tied together by a similar mechanism: an underlying genetic vulnerability, triggered by environmental insults. The primary underlying genetic vulnerability appears to be, in many children, an impaired ability to detoxify, which has left them unable to cope with the increasing toxicity to which they are exposed. These toxins include numerous chemicals and heavy metals. Many of these chemicals and heavy metals are neurotoxic, as well as toxic to the immune system.

Furthermore, recent information indicates that there is a phenomenon of synergistic toxicity among heavy metals and toxic chemicals. This destructive synergy can cause serious problems, even when the threshold levels of individual toxins have not been exceeded."

Toxicity’s effects are seen in more than just the childhood epidemics; toxins affect all of us. Doctors and researchers have determined that part of the problem children with autism have is that they are unable to produce enough glutathione to effectively and efficiently detoxify themselves. Therefore, harmful amounts of toxins, including heavy metals, build up in their systems, making it impossible for them to function to their highest capacities.  This issue is in no way limited to autism. Low levels of glutathione have been detected in everything from ADHD to heart disease to Alzheimer’s.  People of all ages are in a delicate state within their bodies in that they cannot detoxify the amount of toxins they are exposed to every day.


Having the knowledge of synergistic toxicity and complexity science allows us to view the effects of vaccines on the body from a different perspective than doctors are providing. Vaccines contain many toxic elements, from mercury, aluminum and other preservatives, to additives like MSG, artificial colorings, formaldehyde, to bacterias and viruses. (Read the ingredients.) The toxic elements and their combination between the viruses, preservatives, and additives in vaccines can trigger hypersensitive conditions within sensitive people, manifesting in different ways in individuals. The amount of toxic chemicals contained within one vaccination is significant, but when children are inundated with forty-four different doses within the first six years of their life, as are the recommendations in the United States, this sets up a serious synergistic toxicity issue. Reading the following statements from the CDC website without the knowledge of current science keeps us in the dark as to being able to hear the truth. However, when we keep in mind the basics of complexity science, fractals, and synergistic toxicity, the statement takes on an entirely different meaning:

"Millions of doses of vaccines are administered to children in this country each year. Ensuring that those vaccines are potent, sterile, and safe requires the addition of minute amounts of chemical additives. Chemicals are added to vaccines to inactivate a virus or bacteria and stabilize the vaccine, helping to preserve the vaccine and prevent it from losing its potency over time.  The amount of chemical additives found in vaccines is very small. All routinely recommended pediatric vaccines manufactured for the U.S. market are available in formulations that contain no thimerosal or only trace amounts."

It goes on to list the common substances found in vaccines, which include: aluminum, antibiotics, egg protein, formaldehyde, MSG, and thimerosal (a mercury-containing preservative). “Trace amounts,” “minute amounts,” “very small amounts” – any amount is significant when introduced into a body that is unable to detoxify itself.  

Injected directly into the bloodstream, this mixture of chemicals has the potential to react with each other to create a much more potent effect than we are commonly led to believe.

An allergic reaction can be caused by only the slightest exposure to a substance. When several elements to which a person is allergic or sensitive are combined, the synergistic reaction can be completely different and severely worse than just the exposure to one substance. These toxins can build up in the body and the results can range from minor to the most severe health conditions.  


When you allow a government agency or a doctor to tell you that you must give your child certain vaccinations at a certain time, and you are uninformed as to the ingredients in those vaccines and their individual effects, you are turning over the well being of your child to someone else, who most likely will not have the answers that you need in order to help them to recover in the end.  For reasons such as this, it is imperative to know about modern science. I did not know about any of this when my son was born, and as he grew I read and learned. Finally, I was able to make the connections in my mind in order to know what I needed to do to help him to thrive.  No matter what age you or your children are, it is never too late to become aware and to make beneficial changes in your life.
