June 30th, 2014What Causes Autism?

David Christopher MH


Although Autism is multi-faceted and there are no easy answers, I have always believed answers can be found in observing large populations to determine which groups are subject to a disease and in which groups it does not occur. Looking at the entire population of the world we can observe that Autism was non-existent or so rare that it was not observed until the 1930’s. The observations of those living in that time-frame was that a small segment of society was subject to autistic children and that was the segment of society that were wealthy and well educated. In the 1940’s the demographic changed and autistic children were being born into middle class families. Then in the 1950’s poor people were subjected to their children developing Autism. In the 1970’s the rate of autism in children was 1 in 2000. By the 90’s the rate had grown to 1 in 1000 and today 1 in 60 children develop autism. The Geneticists inform us that it cannot be genetically caused, it would be impossible to spread that rapidly. It must be something that we are doing as a society! So again let us observe our society and see if there is a segment of our community that is not subject to having autistic offspring. There was.


A UPI reporter, Dan Olmsted, searched for autistic Amish children in an area of Lancaster
County in Pennsylvania Dutch Country. Statistically he should have found 130 cases of Autism, instead he found none. Statisticians could attribute it to using horse and buggies instead of cars or a total rejection of electricity coming from the Grid or any number of connections. However, included in the Amish rejecting our technological society, was their wholehearted rejection of vaccines. The only difference between this community and the rest of the population, that is valid, is the rejection of our mass immunization program. The Health Department went door to door convincing this community to vaccinate their children, which they did. Now we find Autism occurring in the Amish community.


In the1930’s, only rich, informed parents could afford the vaccines, their children first suffered autism. When vaccines became more affordable the middle class vaccinated and then Autism plagued them. When Government paid for the vaccines, everyone, including the poor, was subject to Autism. The Health Department convinced the Amish to vaccinate their children and now all segments of society can suffer this prevalent disease.


Individually we can become more informed; we can reject these vaccines for our children and avoid this modern day plague. All States have exemptions, you should use them.

April 8th, 2014Who Benefits?

-David Christopher MH


A good friend of ours that was medically oriented and insisted on getting the flu vaccine every year, died from the very disease she was supposedly immune to. The media broadcast the information about her death from the flu but never mentioned that she had been fully vaccinated. Selectively broadcasting only the information on her death from the flu, was a benefit to the medical community only.

Aside from our friend, who else was harmed? The general public. All of us were denied the full facts of the death which prevents us from making an informed decision on whether to vaccinate or not. Shortly after this tragic event, the top local radio personality came down with the flu after receiving her flu shot. This shocked her co- workers, since she was such a proponent of the vaccine. During her medical leave from the talk show, her co-anchor, breaking precedence, announced that she was absent due to flu even though she had been vaccinated. The medical response to the comment was that the vaccine was only 60% effective. That is pretty close to 50 - 50, which means maybe it works and maybe it doesn’t. My experience with many people is, not only is the flu vaccine ineffective, it causes and spreads influenza. The problem is that the same corporations that own the pharmaceuticals also own the media. It would not be financially responsible to have a fully informed populace.

The only way to deal with the flu is prevention, as outlined in Dr. Christopher’s Herbal Home Health Care. And if you still come down with the flu the book outlines how to quickly recover. When I was in my early twenties I came down with the flu and it hit me hard, I was down flat in bed for two weeks. I had to get back to school (16 credit hours) and I was running the family business. A friend came to see me who had taken Dr. Christopher’s herbal classes and gave me THE famous anti-plague formula (this was prior to its being marketed commercially). It tasted horrible but I took it every hour that day and was back at school and work the next day.

I am forever grateful for Dr. Christopher, his products, his publications and his School of Natural Healing.

October 4th, 2013Why Can I Not Feel Better?

David Christopher MH 

So many people, with chronic disorders, ask this question.  And no one seems to have an answer.  They complain of fatigue, sluggishness, blahs, pain, itching, fogginess, hives, gas, bloating and headaches.  Some are diagnosed with anemia, a hypo-thyroid, some idiopathic disorder which is untreatable, or when symptoms cannot be relieved, they are prescribed an SSRI like Prozac with the excuse that it is all in their head.  In reality many of these people suffer from an autoimmune disease.  According to the AARDA (Autoimmune Related Disease Association) 50 million Americans suffer from autoimmunity which puts it ahead of Cancer.


Some researchers believe that autoimmune disorders are a result of a “bored immune system”, because of our overly hygienic society, which leaves the immune system with too little to do so it turns on itself (personally I believe this theory to be bunk).  Others believe that it is the opposite; that an over exposure to toxins and manufactured chemicals confuses the immune system and it goes in to hyper mode destroying its’ own cells (this theory is more plausible but incorrect). The first mentioned theory has some validity only in the weakening of the immune system from lack of stimulus. The second theory would be more correct if we add a possible damage to cells by these chemicals which would then trigger the maintenance aspect of the immune system.


By understanding how the immune system works we can draw better conclusions as to the cause of autoimmunity.  The immune system recognizes self through the presence of RNA and DNA which is present in all of our manufactured proteins.  This makes our protein different than any other organism in existence, including other humans.  Our immune system attacks all proteins other than self.  When other proteins enter the system they are attacked and remembered causing allergies to that protein.  If a similarity of proteins exists then the immune system will attack those cells as if foreign.  Foreign proteins can only enter our hermetically sealed bodies if the barriers are compromised (i.e.: holes in the stomach lining (pain medications), holes in the intestinal tract (antibiotics), through the skin (vaccinations). A healthy digestive system breaks down all proteins we ingest into its’ component parts and then uptakes the components to manufacture its’ own protein.


In understanding how auto immune disease is created we are prepared to treat it.


First, stop compromising the immune system (discontinue use of the responsible pharmaceuticals) and repair the damage (try Dr. Christopher’s “Soothing Digestion” and “Complete Tissue and Bone” formulas).


Next, calm the immune system down, without compromising it, by using Dr. Christopher’s “Immune Calm” formula.  Then cleanse and nourish the body as described in Dr. Christopher’s “Three Day Cleanse and Mucusless Diet” booklet.  Learn more by becoming a student at “The School of Natural Healing“.


Following these simple instructions will eventually resolve the chronic diseases that cause so many people to suffer.

I have received numerous calls from women who cannot conceive or who cannot carry a child to full term, fortunately most of them can be helped.  Dr. Christopher left us a legacy of success in helping these women, with herbs and diet, to achieve a successful delivery.  I remember there were so many mothers who brought their children to his funeral that were named John, or Ray or Christopher.  These children were named after Dr. Christopher with respect and gratitude from their parents for the valuable information they received that paved the way for these children to come into the world.  It is a wonderful expression of gratitude that I have also had the fortune to experience.  These successful programs that he suggested are found in his book Every Woman’s Herbal.

In light of his efforts and compassion for these families who struggled with the heartbreak of infertility, I am grateful that he isn’t here today to see the modern tragedies in this arena.


In October of 1994, a private organization, el comite’ Pro Vida de Mexico, was suspicious of the campaign protocols of an anti-tetanus campaign that vaccinated women between 15 and 45 years of age.  Obviously the question asked was “Are children and men not susceptible to Tetanus?”  Why target women of child bearing age?  To answer their own question the committee obtained vials of the vaccine and had them analyzed by chemists.  What was discovered in the vials, was tainted vaccines containing hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) which is common in humans but not in vaccines.  This hCG is harmless in the body but is devastating when injected with a toxoid.  The immune system produces anti-bodies against the injected hCG possibly rendering the recipient infertile.  Other countries encountering tainted vaccines include the Philippines, Nicaragua, Argentina, Brazil and India.


In my humble opinion I would suggest not trusting any injected substance.  Learn how to naturally deal with disease by enrolling in The School of Natural Healing.

September 27th, 2013Flu Shot Doing Poor Job

David Christopher MH

This is the Associated Press headline dated February 22, 2013, out of Atlanta Georgia, where the headquarters for the CDC (Center for Disease Control) is located. In the article it points out that the flu vaccine has a dismal 27% effectiveness for older people, or in reality a rate of 73% ineffectiveness. We also should point out that the 27% claim of effectiveness is hard to prove. These people may have never come in contact with the virus. In reality without proof of contact they should not claim any effectiveness. One should also ponder the 73% who came down with the flu. Did they come in contact with the disease or did they get it from the vaccine?

I personally believe that you should expose a healthy person to a small amount of the disease to alert the immune system. But to shoot the disease into a junk food eating, immune impaired, unhealthy society is criminal.

What the taxpayer funded CDC should be doing with our precious funds is teaching people how to be healthy, developing strong immunity so they are not subject to every little cold and flu virus which seem to be ubiquitous. Perhaps if they did proper research they would discover what Israeli scientists discovered in 1992. They discovered that Elderberry extract was 90% effective in eliminating flu symptoms in three days.

I know the dangers of vaccines, the nerve damage that the aluminum or mercury preservatives can cause, the auto immune diseases triggered by foreign proteins in the serum, and the contaminant animal diseases inherent in vaccines which trigger horrible diseases like Lyme’s.

What the government should do is stop protecting the irresponsible actions of the giant pharmaceuticals and encourage everyone to learn how to protect themselves and their families.

I suggest that everyone should enroll in the School of Natural Healing and at least take The Family Herbalist course which teaches the basic skills of healing. This course has saved lives and restored health to thousands. And if nothing else, if everyone applied its’ principles then expensive medical procedures would become obsolete and the national debt could be retired.

September 23rd, 2013The Vaccine Decision

Yvonne L. Salcido MH 

Have you ever felt that vaccines were questionable or are you unsure about whether or not you should have your child vaccinated? Have you ever done any research on the subject? If you would like answers to your questions, the book “Make an Informed Vaccine Decision” by Dr. Mayer Eisenstein, is for you. I believe every responsible parent should read this book to become informed by an expert that does not have a vested interest or agenda and presents the evidence in a concise scientific manner.

Dr. Eisenstein is a Medical doctor who went on to get a law degree and a Masters in Public Health. His purpose in pursuing additional education was to be proficient in interpreting disease data so he could accurately present the facts on the pros and cons of vaccinations. He respects the rights of parents to choose the health care of their family, and wants to protect that right.

This book includes chapters on each different vaccine that is required. These chapters include different manufactures, ingredients, side effects, case histories, facts from the Center for Disease Control, FDA, governmental committees, research and information from the VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System.) For example: Did you know that by age 1 ½ on the current vaccination schedule your precious little baby has already been exposed to 38 different vaccines.

A few great examples of his research are: “The FDA is also aware that aluminum is dangerous. In a critical document on drug evaluation, the following statement is made.” “Research indicates that patients with impaired kidney function, including premature neonates who receive (injections) of aluminum at greater than 4 to 5mcg per kilogram of body weight per day, accumulate aluminum at levels associated with central nervous system and bone toxicity. Tissue loading may occur at even lower rates.” — FDA document”  “This means that for a 6 pound baby, 11-14 mcg would be toxic. The hepatitis B vaccine given at birth contains 250 mcg of aluminum—20 times higher than safety levels! Babies weigh about 12 pounds (5.5kg) at two months of age when they receive 1,225 mcg of aluminum from their vaccines—50 times higher than safety levels!”

In New Jersey in 2009 there was an outbreak of pertussis.  One hundred percent of the children infected had been vaccinated. Now isn’t that amazing. Parents truly need to do their homework to know what would be in the best interest of their child. There are so many amazing statistics that will open your mind to what is really going on. According to the World Health Organization, vaccinated children have a higher chance of getting the disease, than unvaccinated children. According to Dr. William Atkinson, Senior Epidemiologist at the CDC, “Measles transmission has been clearly documented among vaccinated persons. In some large outbreaks…over 95 percent of the cases have a history of vaccination.”

Scientists have known for over thirty years that viral infections such as rubella have been shown consistently to cause diabetes mellitus. Dr. Harris Coulter stated “If the disease can cause diabetes so can the vaccine.”

If you are interested in truth and insuring the good health of your family and future generations, this book would be a wonderful addition to your library.

August 15th, 2012Back to School

by Jo Francks MH 

With school starting comes the question “Should I vaccinate my child so he can enter public school?” This is a question that many parents are concerned about.  Many mothers are saying “I just don’t feel good about vaccinations for my child.”  

Mothers’ intuition is a valued gift and should be heeded when the health of a child is important to her. We’ve been told for years that vaccinations are necessary and safe for our children but it’s hard to keep track anymore of all they are vaccinating for.  A parent who is uninformed about what vaccinations are given may say that the doctor knows best and allow multiple vaccinations to be given to the child within a few minutes.  We don’t always contract multiple illnesses at once.  It’s usually one at a time and our immune system goes to work to help us through that illness.  When multiple illnesses in the form of vaccines are injected into the bloodstream, bypassing all of the body’s defense systems, the immune system gets overloaded.  Some of these vaccines are given to newborns just minutes after birth.  None of the illnesses vaccinated for are deadly and when vaccinations were introduced the illnesses were already on a decline due to better sanitation and nutrition.

Most states have an exemption form a parent can fill out so the child can enter school without having the vaccines. These forms can be obtained from the local health department.  Exemptions may include medical, religious or personal reasons.  Schools can’t keep a child out for not having vaccinations, unfortunately that information is not usually provided to the parents.  Please educate yourselves on the safety of vaccinations and then make an informed decision and not a blind one.

June 7th, 2012Infant Vaccinations

By: David Christopher MH

We all want to protect babies from disease! How this is accomplished is the dividing factor. We are all exposed to the modern medicine model, in school, through the media, from relatives, and even from churches. Seldom are the alternative voices heard. Let me first say that I believe exposing a healthy person to small amounts of disease is a good idea, it strengthens and prepares the immune system for possible outbreaks. I do not believe the current medical model does this safely or effectively.


We are born with immunity to many diseases, because of our species, population and individual environments. Diseases that might affect us are negated through passive immunity received through the placenta and then from breast milk. Our own immune system starts to develop after a few months, and then starts developing memory at six months and can stop relying on passive immunity from mother’s milk at weaning “around eighteen months”. This is common knowledge acquired in any anatomy text.


My main concern with vaccines is why do they inject them into babies? There is no immune memory till the child’s immune system develops in the time frame of 6 months to 18 months! No benefit, thousands of casualties. I am personally contacted by many women with children who were perfectly normal until these children received vaccines.


We can safely become immune to many diseases by being healthy and interacting in society. We gain this immunity by exposure to our first line of defense, the mucus lining our skin, especially in orifices. This barrier traps invaders exposing them to phagocyte immune cells which engulf them and then alert T-cells and B-cells which target and destroy all invaders. Then memory cells keep us ready for secondary assaults thus creating immunity. This is a lifetime protection.


Vaccines are injected past our natural defenses, and rarely offer immunity for more than a few years. Even though blood work shows active anti-bodies, it is no guarantee against invasion. As an example, many universities have strict admittance requirements to be fully vaccinated. Even with 100% compliance they have experienced disease epidemics in these “protected populations”, with fully vaccinated individuals, coming down with the disease.


I implore everyone to hear both sides of this issue before ever accepting another vaccination. The best alternative treaties on this subject is “Vaccines: Are They Really Safe and Effective”by Neil Miller. This easy read is a fully documented text and is available at Christopher Publications.
