Gardasil in Arizona: An Experience No Child Should Have To Go Through by Tara Gramza


Gardasil: An experience no child should have to go through

Sane Vax, Inc.   24 August 2015

I am a labor and delivery nurse at Scottsdale Osborn, and studying to become a nurse practitioner. My daughter was born on December 6, 1999. She was approximately 14 years, and 2 months old when she first suffered an adverse reaction to a vaccine.
J.G. was a happy, very healthy, normal, teenage girl. All that changed when the doctor in her pediatrics office recommended she receive Gardasil as prevention against cervical cancer.
As a mother and an informed registered nurse, I was confident in the vaccination and willing to allow J.G. to be vaccinated. On January 7, 2012, J.G. received her first dose of Gardasil at East Valley Pediatrics in Arizona. She progressed normally over the next few months, showing no apparent signs of an adverse reaction to the vaccination.
On July 26, 2012, J.G. received the second shot of Gardasil at East Valley Pediatrics in Arizona. She again progressed normally, still showing no apparent signs of adverse reaction.
On January 23, 2013, J.G. received her third and final injection of Gardasil at East Valley Pediatrics.
By March of 2013, I noticed that J.G. was bruising relatively easily, but thought she was a normal teen with maybe a low iron deficiency. After all, she was growing normally and she had just started menstruating. However, J.G. had never bruised like this before, and I had never seen the bruises shaped like this before. I was concerned, but chalked it up to her being an active, growing teenager. Being a nurse, I did not see any reason for immediate concern.
However, my concern increased in July of 2013 during a vacation to Hawaii. J.G. was playing like a normal kid would and was pushed off the boat, hitting her hip against the side.
The next day, the bruise that developed looked like she had been hit super hard, almost as if someone had taken a baseball bat to her hip. I remember asking her, “How hard did you hit the boat?”
She replied, “Not that hard, I guess it’s low iron like you suggest.”
Despite my nursing background, I still did not think anything was seriously wrong.
Ultimately, at the end of January of 2014, J.G. and I went to see her primary care doctor, Dr. Chapman, for a well-child check-up. We reported to her that J.G. was bruising a lot and had been for months. We thought she needed her iron level checked.
Dr. Chapman sent her for labs. That afternoon, we had her labs drawn.
The next morning, we received a phone call. Dr. Chapman told us J.G.’s platelets were low (I believe at 23k), and she needed to see a hematology doctor A.S.A.P.
I picked up J.G. from school and kept her home until her appointment in 2 days. When we arrived to the office at Phoenix Children’s Hospital, they took more blood samples, 14 tubes, I believe, to double-check the labs and verify the diagnosis. She was again low – at approximately 24k platelets. They then asked how long we had noticed symptoms, and if we had seen bloody noses or spots on her skin. She had not at this time, just bruising.
Phoenix Children’s Hospital decided to refer J.G. to a rheumatologist named Dr. Ede and have her follow up with Dr. Shah, the hematologist. The plan was to send her labs and watch her to see what her body will do.
Dr. Ede told us during our appointment that J.G. did not meet the guidelines for Lupus, and her urine was negative for any indication of kidney damage that is present with kids with Lupus.
He did tell us that her labs were positive for something called Anti-phospholipid antibodies. This meant she was at high risk for clots. He wanted to follow her case, but felt she was not going to be a Lupus patient. He also asked that her labs be run again prior to any treatment for low platelets, such as Immunoglobulin therapy (“IGG”) to recheck the ANA and Double Stranded DNA.
J.G. was diagnosed on February 11, 2014, with immune thrombocytopenic purpura, ITP.
Dr. Shah told us J.G. would probably remain in the 30k platelet range for a few months, and would likely need intervention therapy such as IGG, Rituximab, or steroids.
The antiphospholipid issue was explained as being a possible positive as an auto immune response. The physicians could not say for sure which autoimmune condition came first, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome or thrombocytopenia.
They also said her labs were all negative for virus or other causes of ITP, and decided it was more likely a chronic immune thrombocytopenia. For several months, J.G. did stay at around 35K platelets.
Then, in May of 2014, J.G. experienced a seriously heavy period, nose bleeds twice in one day that would not stop, and little red dots all over her arms and legs. We took her to the Phoenix Children’s Hospital urgent care and they found J.G.’s platelets were 14K. (Note: a normal platelet count ranges from 150,000 to 450,000)
Dr. Williams, a hematologist with Dr. Shah, began seeing J.G. They told us to come back in the morning first thing for her first round of IGG. She was admitted all day for the infusion. They ran her blood for labs that Dr. Ede requested and started the infusion. These labs showed her ANA and double stranded DNA were both negative now. Dr. Ede decided to continue to follow her case, but did not need to see her anymore, because she does not meet the guidelines for Lupus.
J.G. came back to Phoenix Children’s Hospital for labs again to check her platelets a few days later. Her levels were around 75K. However, they quickly fell to 10K again, and she was then admitted again for another dose of IGG. Her levels rose again to 100k then fell down again to 23K.
Dr. Williams decided it would be best to start her on a medication called Rituximab to try to reverse the effects of her immune system’s response by resetting her B cells that cause her body to mark her platelets for destruction.
That night, J.G. started with bleeding of the nose again, small red marks all over her body, including her bottom, and heavy, irregular menstrual bleeding. She went to urgent care again and was told she had a 4k platelet count. The physician on call reported to the hematologist who then decided to admit her again for a high dose of steroids known as dexamethasone.
She took a super high dose of steroids for a few days to try to give her a boost while the Rituximab did its job. The steroids made J.G. very ill, with a stomach ache, headache, and racing heart. She gained some weight, too. She started the infusions of Rituximab, which is given in 4 doses for 4 weeks.
J.G. was admitted outpatient all day for those infusions and tolerated it well. She was to continue the lower dose steroids for several weeks so her platelet levels would stay above 25k. She did remain around 30K for many weeks. Then in August of 2014, her platelets jumped to over 150k. She was doing great and responding well to the treatment. She was removed from steroids. She officially completed Rituximab on June 24, 2014, and had a complete response with normal platelet count since July of 2014.
We have spent numerous hours and dollars fighting J.G.’s illness, all brought about by the Gardasil vaccination.
Worse yet, J.G. has lost her teenage years due to her debilitating condition, and cannot live a normal life. The fear of bruising and her potentially low platelet count dominates her mind wherever she goes.
J.G. continues to remain in remission, and continues to be seen by Dr. Williams every few months. During her last visit in January of 2015, her labs were rerun to show a negative DNA and slightly positive ANA and positive antiphospholipid antibodies.
Dr. Williams has said he thinks that the antiphospholipid antibodies and ANA should go away in time. However, she is still at a high risk for chronic ITP due to her age, her history of bruising post-vaccination, and the presence of other antibodies.
Her labs have continued to remain positive and her court expert Dr. Shoenfeld thinks she will remain APS positive for life. It will never go away. She will have high clot risk and the risk of return of blood related disorders and high pregnancy risk. Unfortunately it won’t go away. But so far so good. She’s still healthy.
No child should have to go through what my daughter has experienced.

The Health Benefits Of Laughter

I might add the crying has the same effect on the body though not so pleasant.   Every now and then an emotional detox can be beneficial for good health.

Good Medicine: Do As Much Nothing As Possible by Sayer JI

Good Medicine: Do As Much Nothing As Possible

''The delivery of good medical care is to do as much nothing as possible'' 

~ Samuel Shem, The House of God

Medicine is undergoing an existential crisis today. Its core value proposition – to help and not hurt -- is failing to manifest. Patients are suffering. Doctors are suffering. The only exuberant party on the battlefield against disease is the pharmaceutical industryAn industry whose annual causalitiesfar exceed the death total from our two decade long involvement in the Vietnam war. 

The entire system is on the precipice of a collapse, if not for economic reasons alone, then certainly for ethical and intellectual ones. The irony is that the system has become so ineffective and dangerous that avoiding medical treatment (excluding perhaps emergency care) has become one of if not the best healthcare strategy you can implement to protect your health and well-being.

Nowhere is this clearer than in the realm of cancer. Over the past few decades, billions have been spent on screening asymptomatic populations to "prevent cancer," with the result that millions have been assigned with questionable diagnoses (e.g.,"early stage-" or "stage zero-cancers") and then shepherded into chemo, radiation and surgery treatments as if watchful waiting, or better yet, making significant nutritional and lifestyle modifications, would be a suicidal approach vis-à-vis the inexorability and presumed lethality of genetically-determined cancer.

We needn't detail the misery this approach has produced, but suffice it to say that despite the industry's claims of thousands of "lives saved" from the detection of "early cancers," breast and prostate cancer specific mortality has at best stayed the same, and may have actually increased in some cases. In light of the fact that the financial costs of misapplied treatment in some cases is so high that the uninsured, their families, and society as a whole, face bankruptcy, the situation is dire indeed.

Even after the cat was let out of the bag in 2013, and a National Cancer Institute commissioned expert panel concluded that labeling screening detected lesions known as ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) and high-grade intraepithelial neoplastic hyperplasia (HG-PIN) (colloquially labeled as "breast cancer" and "prostate cancer," respectively) as carcinomas ("cancer") is no longer justified. Instead they opted for redefining what were previously considered potentially lethal cancers as "benign or indolent lesions of epithelial origin." Yet, you hear virtually no mention of this change anywhere. 

Tens of thousands are still being diagnosed with the same "cancers" and being cut, poisoned and burned, without informed consent.

The lack of acknowledgment and discussion about these tremendous diagnostic "errors" is less surprising when you consider that about 1.3 million U.S. women were wrongly treated for breast cancer in the past 30 years, with prostate and lung cancer representing two additional icebergs upon which the Titanic cancer industry is presently running itself aground upon, regardless of whether the medical establishment will accept responsibility. Ignoring the truth that millions suffered needlessly, it would seem, is less painful than admitting wrong, and dealing with the psychological and financial fallout that inevitably follows. But is it possible to stem the tide much longer against the inevitable transformations brewing?

This Is The Final Post For Inspirational August 2015

A Warm Farewell

I wish to thank all who visited here this August as well as all the contributors of inspiration.  I hope that you were inspired in a way in which you have found your own inner inspiration.

In my view to inspire is to invite others to visit the best part of themselves.  Their human(e)ity, the higher angels of their being, their Soul or as I refer to It as Self.

If God is willing and the creek don't rise, I'll be back again next year for a 6th Annual Inspirational August.

I wish you all the best in your lives and if you just arrived to this post today, then please click on the link provided below to read the first entry and then on the older posts link until you have travelled through time and read all the posts for this event.  I believe that you will feel better if you were to do so:


My kindest & warmest regards to all,

Love Is The Healer - A Discourse by M.N. Hopkins

Love is the healer, love is that which gives one the courage to reach so deep down into one's own darkness and plock from oneself that which makes one ill.  Yes, ill it is as in illness of the mind and the body.

For illness takes a hold upon the minds of those weakened by grief, by anger, by so many years of disappointment.

Love is that which can and will free one from one's self-imposed prison of darkness.  Love is both the key and the force that motivates one to open the door of one's prison cell and be released into the Light of healing.

Yes, healing is a Light.  A blinding white light that heals our blindness and allows us to see clearly ahead the possibility of health being renewed.

For in health one is truly free from one's fears, from one's limitations, from all that keeps one from seeing clearly the simplicity of the healing act.

For, the healer is only he or she who shows one the possibility that good health exists and is 100 % sure that the body, emotions, or mind can be again returned to a state of Grace, or good health.

If one accepts the limiting words of Science, then one is truly doomed to a life of imprisonment in a cell that is made up of the energy of one's own fears which is guarded by ego.  Ego is as a child and lacks both the guidance of wisdom and believes the words of those of limited knowledge who give power to sickness by giving power to one's fears.

The day that one closes one's ears to outside voices of no real authority and listens to one's own Inner Voice which has contact and guidance from the Highest Authority, then the chains of fear will no longer continue to tie one to one's illness.

When one meets one whose faith is so great and trusts in his or her own Inner Voice that has been so nutured and allowed to be heard, then an opportunity exists, an opportunity to restore the body back to balance and health.

The healer does nothing more than to hold the hand of him or her in need of healing while they again reconnect to their own Inner Strength and Wisdom and see the truth of their current situation and clearly see their doorway to freedom.

Once seen and understood, then they break the chain of illness and calmly walk out into the Light of freedom.

It's so simple and easy to do, yet few can see through the dark clouds of their own fears.

Once the Light reveals the darkness and dissolves the fear, then a calmness and a certainty fill one's being and the sickness instantly disappears never more to return.

Come with us while we hold your hands and be not afraid.  We make this offer of health to all whom will listen.  Remember, there is nothing that cannot be healed through the simple act of Faith and Love from Self.

We will not give the names of your human illnesses.  For this will only give them power over you.  Instead, will we give to you the gift of Grace to Man and watch while all illness disappears and the body is returned to a natural state of balance.

Pray to God for Grace and it will be delivered to you upon the wings of angels.  Be brave and join with us to bring back balance and love.

Be at peace and be in Love.  For there is no place for fear in a balanced body and mind.  Fear is an unnatural state and has no place in a healthy state of being.

Healing is a word many use, but few understand.  Healing is so simple an act that it eludes the human mind.  Why does it do so?

Because of the habits of fear that have been encouraged by the human communities to protect those of limited knowledge and even more limited experience with true acts of healing.

Healing is simply a phenomenon that occurs when one can set aside from one's limiting thoughts and outerward imposed limited thinking and for the moment be free from all the fears others have encouraged within you as a means of control and that you have allowed to remain, further hindering any possibility of self-healing.

For, it is truly an act of the Self upon the self once one has for just even a brief moment dropped all their preconceived notions and misunderstanding that have been taught and maintained in a deliberate effort to maintain the power of the self-proclaimed voices of authority that deceive to gain a profit from human suffering.

How many times have you heard the term, scientifically proved.  What does this mean in reality?

That a group of health practitioners or a drug manufacturer have chosen a scientist to publish the results that shed a positive light upon their practices or medicines while at the same time denying any claims that dispute the results of those hired for the results that they wish people to believe in.  These results are published and aggressively marketed through a campaign of fear and trickery.

Remedies or practices that are simple, inexpensive, and very effective are demonized and woe to those who dare to fight for the health and well being of their patients.  A modern day witch hunt may be a more accurate description of these practices of those who gain great profit with often ineffectual results.

This is the beauty of acts of faith.  These interventions cancel out the imprinted fears and allow the body to be in a state of calm, which is nothing more than the freedom from fear.  Once the body's mind and emotions are calm, then the health giving Light surrounds and fills the person and the body's natural healing ability is at it's optimum.

Soon, what are called medical miracles occur since those self-proclaimed High Priests of Medicine cannot maintain their lies and rather than get caught and have to admit that our systems of healing that they have not yet embraced or understand are effective, proclaim this rapid healing as an unexplained medical mystery.

Those who dare to question their authority are discredited and a systematic campaign begins to destroy their careers and stop them from practicing less others begin to question the High Priests incompetence and lack of understanding.

This is so common not only within the Health Profession, but in all human institutions with great profits and funding that will be and are protected at all costs without any concern for the health and well being of others.

So, can you see how something so simple as the act of healing through prayer or faith can be stopped by the voices of fear, whether that fear be ego fear from within one's own being or the outward voices of the ego fears of others who deceive and lie to maintain their own fears of loosing control over others.

For, in freedom, one cannot be controlled.  For, in freedom, have we choices.  This freedom is the most prized and sought after while at the same time, the most feared attribute of Man.

For, where is the profit in healthy bodies and minds.  So, you see in a sense the current human remedies are not the cure and in more causes than not are the causes of many sicknesses and plagues upon your kind.

Your Soul or Self has only Love and Kindness and good and true intentions for your health and well being and will join with God once ego has been quieted and bring true healing to the human organism.

Once the voices of fear that limit one by telling one what is possible or impossible have been quieted, then one reconnects to one's Soul which is connected to God and a Health Giving Light begins to flow filling the body with Calm, Love, and the Joy that is beyond the Human Realm.  Filling one again with hope and the possibility that nothing is impossible and all can be healed by the Grace of God to Man.

We ask you to be not afraid and feel this power that awaits you just behind our words.  Feel our Love, feel our Calm, feel our Joy of being able to be of service to Man and be now healed!

These are more than mere words and for those who have opened their hearts for even a moment will feel the effects and know beyond any doubts that that which ailed them is now gone and the sign of this being true will be a feeling of renewed strength and vitality within your human body.

We ask you to be brave and daily pray to God to send His Healing Angels who bring with them the gift of healing.  Do this daily and have faith that your prayers will be answered and each time that you do this, one or more physical, emotional, or mental afflictions will cease to exist and within their place shall be a strong, calm, and balanced body.

We speak again of healing and mainly the healing of the heart.  The heart is that which contains the doorway to one's Soul and that Soul is one's connection to God.

A strong and healthy heart is open to all possibilities and harbors no limitations that can be found within the human mind.  The heart that is open waits upon the Grace of God which is the greatest redeemer and healer of all that ails Mankind.

Through Grace are all sins healed.  Through Grace does one again find one's way back home to one's Soul.

Once Soul has connected to the heart a flow begins from God to Man.  A flow that cannot be reversed by mind.  A flow that brings with it a calmness and a certainty that cannot be found in the Earth Dimension.

First, comes the Calm, then comes the Love of Life, and lastly, comes the Joy in living.  This joy is intoxicating and permeates every cell of your human body bringing with it a revitalization of human health.  A natural health that if allowed to flourish, strengthens and fortifies the body against all illness or disorders of the mind and emotions.

The body was created to be a self-substaining and self-healing, but Man through his limited thinking thought that he knew better than his Creator and set about to create a system built upon limitation or self-limitation that resulted in illness and mental and emotional disorders of every kind imaginable.  And it was imagination that fueled this fire of the destruction of an already well functioning system.

It was within the human need to feel as a god that hell on Earth took form where once a paradise existed.  A true rebellion to overthrow all that is good and of God through deception and the creation of false concepts and systems of living.

The Human has set about to create systems that mimic or imitate natural systems that have already been in place since the beginning of time.  Art to capture Natures natural art forms and Music to imitate the Music of Creation.  A foolish venture indeed.  An attempt to rob life of Life, when Life is all that exists all around and within Creation.

Imaginary systems of hierarchy and valuation that is built upon false concepts of reality.  An attempt to falsify all that is true.

A foolish and childish venture indeed and one that has caused so much pain and suffering and still you all allow these lies to continue when the Truth shouts itself out so loudy that no one can hear, no one can see it, and no one can feel the pulse of Life that vibrates within every cell of the human form.

Open your hearts to the Truth of Creation and your minds will be healed and aline again with your Souls intentions and the ability to create a world of beautiful creations that are honest and pure and capable of substaining a body's lifetime for many generations if needed.

Join with Soul and God and become the true trilogy.  God, Soul, and Man as One.

We can say many things, but we choose to say to all who will listen.  All can be healed through Love.

All physical, emotional, or mental problems can be healed in such a simple way that few can understand or words through the fears that have been imprinted upon them by those who practice these ancient and barbaric techniques that are called, modern medicine.

Rather than calling it modern medicine, perhaps  it would be more accurate to say, a modern poison.  If not for the use of pharmacitical drugs is damaging enough, we also have the words used by practioners that poison one's emotional and mental states and in truth act as obstacles or hinderances to the body's natural healing abilities, which if left unchecked would bring about the natural healing of both.

Belief is so important and perhaps the key factor in the healing process.  So as one believes, so it will be in time.

If one believes in health, then health is the natural result of one's belief system.  If one believes in sickness and illness and the words that comdemn rather than encourage, then sickness is the end result.

To say that one is sick with such and such symptoms just gives power to the illness.  If words are to be given, then let them be ones of hope and kindness and words that will instill an active belief that there is no bacteria, no virus, no micro organisms that can damage or defeat the health of the human body.

We say to all who will listen:  "There is no illness, ailment, or mental or emotional problem that cannot be quite easily cured just through the simple faith of a child."

Be not deceived by those of limited knowledge who practice in a guessing game and a game of chance with the well-being of your body and mind.

Take responsibility for your body and mind as you would care for a small child and protect them from the words that comdemn and destroy a sound built in system that maintains good health.

Be misled and deceived no more by those who concentrate more upon their personal wealth and power over others, than have a true or sincere love and concern for you as a fellow human in need of support and kindness that will lead again to a strong and healthy state of being.

Open your heart to this possibility if just for a moment and let the Healing Light enter through your heart and travel to the place within your body that needs healing.

Now, feel it in your Heart of Hearts that health soon returns.  Be not afraid and open yourself up to new possibilities and believe not those of dark determination who profit from the suffering of many due to their own weaknesses and ill afflictions.

We, the Healing Friends will come as theives in the night and join with you who truly wish to be restored to good health.  Think on us and we will come to restore faith oneself and in God and in the natural healing abililites of the human body.

Now, think on us before retiring for the night.  Pray only to God and ask that He send His Healing Angels of Light.  Have the faith of a child and know that when you arise in the morning, you will be restored again to health.

Now, we wish you all a happiness that comes from knowing with the mornings light will come a new found health.
