Flu Vaccine Propaganda

Recently my step-kids came back from private school with the fear-mongering propaganda below:


The papers talk about how the flu is deadly and that vaccination is the "best" way to prevent the flu.  This is utter and complete nonsense.  First of all people do NOT die of the flu virus.  The so-called "flu-associated" deaths are most likely from iatrogenic infections which the person acquires during hospitalization!  

When I was in college and uneducated about the risks of vaccines, I was persuaded to take the flu vaccine.  Much to my dismay, I became sicker than I had ever been in my entire life.  I was bed-ridden for 2 days, miserable, with the flu.  I would never wish that demise on anyone and I never want to experience that again.  I should mention that I was otherwise very healthy and fit. 

Under the section of is the flu vaccine safe, they fail to mention reactions like the one that I had.

Under the benefits of getting a flu vaccine they say that the shot can keep your child from getting sick.  Again they miss the opportunity to disclose that the recipient of the injection can BECOME extremely sick!

The claim that the flu vaccination may make your illness milder if you do get sick is not supported by any scientific data,  In fact, all so-called "studies" that they reference in this literature do not have any sources sited!  Where is it published (in a peer-reviewed journal)?  Who funded the $tudy?  What was the sample size?  What was the nature of the study?  What are the confounding variables?  Show me the evidence.  You can not make such outrageous claims without any evidence to back it up!

Under other ways to protect against the flu they fail to mention nutrition, vitamins, hydration, exercise, rest, and sleep.  

Under medicine to treat the flu, they only mention conventional meds, no natural (herbal or vitamin/mineral) immune supporting antivirals.

They fail to mention the toxic and disgusting ingredients in the flu vaccine which include: mercury, gelatin, formaldehyde, and MSG.

I disagree with their recommendation that pregnant women get the shots.  Pregnant and lactating mothers transfer these toxins to their baby!  Mercury and other heavy metals stay in the body forever and MSG is a neurotoxin.  Heavy metal can deposit in the brain (which is particularly susceptible to heavy metal toxicity).  These are not health conscious recommendations!  The risk of the vaccine is worse than the risk of the flu!

They do give a very important piece of information, "Flu viruses are constantly changing and so flu vaccines are updated often to protect against the flu viruses that research indicates are most likely to cause illness during the upcoming flu season."  This is the most important and true statement in the entire handout.  The viruses and changing and mutating all the time and the vaccines are being updated some of the time.  Also, science doe not have a crystal ball to predict which viruses are going to be most active at any point in time.  I do not want anyone playing Russian roulette with my health when the shot contains heavy metals and other chemicals which are not fir for human consumption!

Conventional Iconic Doctor Oz says
NO FLU SHOTS for his wife and children!

Here is some additional information from my previous posts about the flu:


The scare-tactic data of soaring high death rates provided by the CDC in their brochure was from between the years 1918 and 1919. Hello? We have antibiotics since the 1940’s!!! That data is totally and completely IRRELEVANT! Are you kidding me? Using pre-antibiotic information to scare stupid people into taking the vaccine so big pharma and the gov can make more money off of us! Good grief!!!

The CDC has the audacity to state, “Before the vaccine” prior to their ridiculous statistics in order to make it look like the vaccine is what saved the day. NO, it should say before antibiotics, sanitary water, and hygienic living conditions!!!

Granted the flu is a virus, if it is left untreated the weakened immune system is susceptible to a super-imposed bacterial infection, which is what all those millions of people died from! No one EVER died from the FLU!!! See Merck page 1288, “ Although even healthy people demonstrate defects in lung clearance and ventilation for several weeks after acute illness, RECOVERY IS THE RULE in uncomplicated influenza.”

The CDC website says the following about potential adverse effects:
Severe problems:
· Life-threatening allergic reactions from vaccines are very rare. If they do occur, it is within a few minutes to a few hours after the shot.
· In 1976, a certain type of influenza (swine flu) vaccine was associated with Guillain-BarrĂ© Syndrome (GBS). Since then, flu vaccines have not been clearly linked to G.B.S. However, if there is a risk of G.B.S. from current flu vaccines, it would be no more than 1 or 2 cases per million people vaccinated. This is much lower than the risk of severe influenza, which can be prevented by vaccination.

Treatment: rest, naturopathic or homeopathic remedies, hydration, symptomatic relief to prevent bacterial super-imposition and appropriate antibiotics if super-infection occurs.

CONCLUSION: The CDC brochure is purposely misleading people into erroneous thinking by deliberately presenting skewed data! This is totally unethical and nothing less than outrageous! No one ever died from the flu. We can successfully treat it with modern medicine!


Given at 6, 12 months and then once a year. Vax contains mercury, gelatin, formaldehyde, MSG

Possible side effects include: Guillain Barre syndrome, encephalopathy, facial and arm paralysis, visual problems.

Virtually all cases of the flu pass without consequence.  And the disease isn’t usually treated anyway, so why bother with the vax? 

There are less than 60 deaths per year in children up to 14 years old.  Complications of the flu usually occur in the elderly or people with chronic heart, lung, or immune system diseases (p. 121-123).  Children with asthma, diabetes or chronic health diseases are recommended to take the vaccine but otherwise healthy people do not need the shot.

People who SHOULD NOT be given the vax include those with: egg allergy, past history of Guillain Barre syndrome, and children routinely taking aspirin.

Antivirals can make the course of the disease milder.
Dr Sears says, “I feel that the potential severity of the flu for infants and children has been hyped up by the media.  The actual number of fatalities on this age group every year is extremely small.  Combine this with the high rate of side effects and the unusual chemical additives in the shot, and it’s no wonder some parents shy away from making this a routine vaccine for their kids” (p. 134). 

CONCLUSION:  See highlighted paragraph above by Dr Sears from p 134 of his book.  It summarizes my sentiments very nicely!

HIB (the bacterial flu bug)

This vax is typically given at 2, 4, 6, and 15 months, by AAP guidelines. 

According to Dr. Sears, “severe cases of this disease are now extremely rare.”  There are only about “25 cases per year in the United States in kids under five years of age.”  And, “a breastfed baby who does not attend day care is at a particularly low risk of catching this illness” (p. 9).  My guess is that those 25 cases were in children who have weak immune systems, live in unhygienic circumstances and were possibly malnourished or impoverished without access to appropriate medical care.

He says that he hasn’t seen a single case of HIB in 10 years of practice and that since the disease is so rare, HIB isn’t the most critical vaccine (p. 12).

Dr Sears states that in the vaccine trials, “more babies who received the vaccine caught a serious HIB infection than those who didn’t get the vaccine!” (p. 8).

It seems to me that the risks of the side-effects of the vax such as Guillain-Barre syndrome are more common and more threatening than the bug itself. 

According to the CDC, “The risk of Hib vaccine causing serious harm or death is extremely small.”

CONCLUSION:  My baby is breastfed and not in day care.  Therefore, she is at low risk for catching HIB, which is anyway a rare bug with rarely grave consequences.  Since the vaccine is known to have caused serious harm or death, why would I want to take that “small” chance???  No thank you!  We’ll stay healthy with breastmilk and naturopathic medicine and if need be, antibiotics!


According to the Merck Manual, “Haemophilus species are normally found in the upper respiratory tract and RARELY cause disease! (page 1166).

Antibiotic treatment varies depending on the site of infection.

According to the brochure, this condition was responsible for the death of 600 children a year (before the vaccine). I suspect that those 600 children were immune compromised, malnourished, probably not breastfed, without medical access and/or lived in poverty conditions with poor sanitation and hygiene. I doubt if any of them were the children of naturopathic doctors!

The vaccine contains ammonium-sulfite, and thimerosal.

CONCLUSION: This is a RARE condition, which can be successfully treated with antibiotics.

Holy Sister, THANK YOU!

Dearest Neshamaleh,

You don't know me but our lives are interconnected.  Today I read your enlightened #MeToo responsa and I sighed a breath of relief.  I had to reach out to you and share my story of how our lives are connected...

Unfortunately, I never met your father in person, but your cousin, Rabbi Naftali Citron was my Chabad Rabbi when I went to UC Santa Cruz from 1993-1996 as an undergrad.  Although my parents were secular Israelis at the time (now more observant BH), they sent me to Chabad Hebrew school from nursery through 7th grade so I could have a Jewish education but I never knew that your father wrote the melodies and songs that we sang!  I think every Camp Gan Israel around the world sings "Am Yisrael Chai.".

It wasn't until 2002, however, when I went to an IsraLight Shabbaton in the Catskills, New York that one of the attendees introduced me to your father's heartfelt stories on CD.  Those CDs were so touching and moving that they brought me to tears.

Later, when I wanted to share those CDs with my father, I found out that he had been to one of your father's concerts! 

When I came back to Seattle, I discovered that my neighborhood shul (in Seward Park, Washington) had a lay-led Carlebach Kabbalat Shabbat break-off minyan.  Needless to say, I was a devoted regular!  The musical liturgy made a world of difference in the spiritual experience.  The melodies lifted up the words to a sublime place where your heart could be open and a connection with the words through song was flowing, deep, and meaningful.

My first job after grad school was as an Acupuncturist on a major cruise ship line.  They listed Friday night Jewish services on the itinerary but I went a few times and saw that the guests didn't feel comfortable leading the services and there was no one on board who was qualified to do it.  I called my Chabad rabbi in California and he said that under those circumstances, I had his permission and blessing to lead Kabbalat Shabbat services on the cruise ship.

Now this is WHY I am writing you this letter:  I had the honor and privilege to lead a Carlebach Kabbalat Shabbat minyan for almost 2 years on cruise ships around the world and is was mammesh a gevalt, as your father would say.  I had no training, just my previous attendance of shul in Seattle.  But I felt like I was there on shlichut.  Although acupuncture got me on board, leading the service was clearly my mission and true purpose for being there.  I wrote about it in my book.  Here's what I want you to know... Because of your father's melodies, people were brought to tears in my prayer service every single week.  I'm not kidding, I could hear them sniffling when I was on the bema (in our case a podium in a movie theater)!  After services I had a small Kiddush and I could see the people's bloodshot eyes from crying.  People told me that my services made them feel "closer to G-d."  Many people told me that the service was better than their rabbis at home.  I understand why.  Most religious services are automatic, robotic, boring and dry.  Your father's tunes tap into a dimension where people feel connection for the first time ever.  It brings them out of the void and into an ecstasy that they never knew existed within Judaism!  I remember a young man with dreadlocks told me, "for the first time in my life, I am looking forward to services next week."  THAT IS THE POWERFUL LEGACY OF YOUR FATHER!!!  There are many stories like that and people said on their comment cards that the service was a highlight of their cruise.  I also once merited to lead a Carlebach service for a group of ~100 Holocaust survivors.  What a high!!!

Because I wanted to experience everything Carlebach, I went to the Moshav that he established in Israel and I spent a lovely Shabbat there.  I was hosted by a couple sweet families and got to know members of Soulfarm and the Moshav Band, also great offsprings of your father's inspiration and influence.  I also read books about him such as Holy Brother and Lamed Vav.

Over the years, I wanted to share his light with others so that more people could be touched by it.  I created these videos and posted them online.  One day I was searching for an image of him to put in a video and I came across the disturbing allegations.

I framed this beautiful painting by Sheva Chaya 
and on the sides printed Rabbi Zalman Schachter- Shalomi's 
translation of Yedid Nefesh

I called up Reb Naftali to speak with him about it and it was clear that it was a very difficult thing to address in the Carlebach shul, where he is now the head rabbi, because while some people were demanding an apology, others were in complete denial.  There was no common ground or room for discussion.  So avoidance of the matter became the status quo. That is, until your brave and bold publication today.

In addition, I spoke with a local rabbi in South Florida where I live now, Rabbi Intrator, who was your father's right-hand-man, and he claimed to know nothing about the alleged incidents.

Recently after the #MeToo stories started pouring out, people have brought up those matters again, this time with social media, it could not be ignored.  I didn't like the way people were villainizing and demonizing your father.  It is as if a person could only be a sinner or a saint, as if all the good that a person has accomplished in a lifetime could be erased on the account of their shortcomings/mistakes/flaws.  Although I am also a survivor of sexual assault, and I have empathy for the pain and suffering of these women, there was so much anger and hatred and I felt like it was misplaced.  I felt like the demands to banish his music was totally unreasonable and unjustified and doesn't solve anything.  I tried to state my case/defense but just got bullied, attacked, and ridiculed.

Your father positively impacted countless people during his lifetime and ALSO countless people were positively affected by him AFTER he left this world.  That cannot be said about many people.  I'm just one person, who never even got to meet him, and yet he touched hundreds if not thousands through me!  It's a major ripple effect.  Imagine how many others like me never told you their stories!  Your father is doing kiruv from heaven through us!  Like the Lion King song: He lives in you and he lives in me and everyone he has reached!

Thank you for writing your beautiful and eloquent blog, it was just perfect.  I am so glad that you came forward and articulated your sentiments.  It was so well-written, balanced and thoughtful and open and loving and caring.

So besides seeing you in concert in Boca Raton, Florida several years ago, and an occasional interaction on Facebook, we have never really met either but I feel like I know you, holy sister.  And I want you to know that the bright light of the legacy of your father shines on and lives and on and I would like to propose a beautiful Hawaiian prayer song for healing any and all of the hurt hearts that are out there.  Let us sing together and replace the pain with love, IYH ve nomar Amen.


I have yet to visit your father's holy kever but I will make it my mission to make a pilgrimage there on my next visit to pay my respects to the very special man who opened so many hearts and I was blessed to be privy to a very small fraction of it! Thank you & namaste!
