Natural vs vaccine immunity

When a child acquires an infection naturally, the body mounts a full TH1 cell-mediated immune response, as well as a TH2 humoral immune response. This fully activated immune response will create lifelong or near lifelong immunity: if exposed again the child will not go through the intense infection process. By contrast, the vaccination process uses toxic adjuvants to aggressively overstimulate the TH2 humoral immune response, bypassing the critical TH1 cell-mediated immune response. This causes antibodies to be created against the injected antigens, but does not actually confer immunity – hence the need for booster shots. Vaccine “effectiveness” is thus measured in terms of antibody production, rather than true immunity. A child can still acquire or manifest the very disease s/he is vaccinated against, and this does in fact often happen during disease outbreaks. Not only this, but the vaccination process itself may exhaust and disturb immune capacity, and lead to chronic health issues – seizures, autoimmune conditions, autism, allergies, asthma, lifelong damage and death. The longer term and cumulative risks of vaccines are in truth not examined or considered by those who make or test them, by public health authorities or by legislators seeking mandatory vaccination laws. They fail to ask a most basic and crucial scientific question: namely, whether mass vaccination causes or contributes to today’s surging chronic childhood illness rates.

Dr. Richard Moskowitz, MD and Dr. Thomas Cowan, MD, give an in-depth look into the differences between natural immunity and vaccination in their books Vaccines: A Reappraisal and Vaccines, Autoimmunity, and the Changing Nature of Childhood Illness, respectively. True immunity – whereby the body will not go through the major infection process again – can only occur when BOTH the TH1 and TH2 immune response have been fully activated. This only happens when the infection process begins through normal routes of entry (e.g., mucous membranes as opposed to injection). This natural immunity process resolves the infection with a full immune response; whereas with vaccination, rather than preventing disease, the disease is actually prevented from ever being resolved. This is why “outbreaks” happen in vaccinated individuals, and have nothing to do with the unvaccinated or “herd immunity.”  The acute response that happens when an infection happens naturally – coughing, rash, fever, etc. – is an indication that the ENTIRE immune system is activated to expel the viruses or bacteria causing the infection, while simultaneously creating cellular memory that will know what to do when exposed again – what we call “immunity.” We must also note that the infection process during childhood primes the immune system for future encounters with OTHER infections, and may even reduce incidence of disease processes in later life, as indicated by rates of naturally acquired measles and the later occurrence of cancer.

Death from infections declined dramatically prior to the introduction of most vaccines due to better sanitation (plumbing and waste removal), refrigeration to prevent food spoilage, the use of powerful natural and holistic healing remedies, the ending of child labor and the overall improvement of living, which allowed for robust health. For example, death from measles in the USA declined 99.96% before the vaccine was ever introduced. A healthy immune system has the ability to go through the infection process without incident in the vast majority of cases; and typically if there are complications, these are due to nutrient deficiencies or other treatment or susceptibility issues, not a lack of toxic vaccines. Understanding of the history of vaccination and how vaccines never actually saved us from infections – and if anything, have made our situation worse – can be found in Dr. Suzanne Humphries, MD seminal work, Dissolving Illusions: Disease, Vaccines, and the Forgotten History.
