There can be no question that fighting disease with disease is a
ghastly failure in the experience of all nations that have tried it.
The world has dallied too long with such methods. Vaccination has
been inflicted upon humanity for over a century, yet Small-pox, which
it was to banish, is the only one of the great epidemic diseases
still present in civilised communities.
WHY DO SO MANY DOCTORS STILL ADVOCATE VACCINATION?
In the light of the colossal exposure of the failure of
Vaccination in the Philippines and in Japan, and in face of the
staggering amount of mortality, disease and suffering which follows
in the wake of every big Vaccination campaign, the reader may
reasonably ask why so many doctors and public health authorities are
still enthusiastic about it?
Many laymen suspect that the loyalty of the medical profession to
Vaccination is inspired less by scientific considerations than by
pecuniary reasons, and it is difficult to say that the suspicion is
An inoculation can be accomplised in less time than almost any
other service rendered by a doctor, and there is no doubt that a
Small-pox scare is a gold mine for the vaccinators, and that people
suffering from the after effects of Vaccination call for an
increasing amount of medical attention. An occasional clamour for
Vaccination worked up by the Press is as profitable to the doctors as
an occasional bargain sale to the drapers.
Those who know that there are about 1,200 medical officers in the
United Kingdom with salaries ranging around 1000 pounds a year -
mostly "soft jobs" available only to Vaccinationist doctors, discover
another business reason for the medical profession's loyalty to the
The fact that no doctor who disbelieves in Vaccination can be
appointed to a hospital with bed patients, and that Vaccination is
still a condition of employment in the Army, Navy, and in all State
Departments, and also of admission to educational and other
institutions, increases the suspicion that a belief in Vaccination is
a profitable element in a doctor's equipment! When no one could hold
a Government post without belonging to the Church of England all
Government officials were devout members of the Church, but when the
conditions disappeared orthodoxy and uniformity of belief disappeared
with it. In the same way, if a medical officer's views on Vaccination
were left to his own professional conscience the public might be
surprised to find how vaccinating doctors became openly heretical.
The thoughtful citizen may ask: "Why don't the newspapers tell
the truth about this dirty business?" until someone in Fleet Street
explains that the daily and evening papers derive much of their
information gratis from official sources, and that any paper which
criticises Vaccination might find its supply of news from the
Ministry of Health immediately curtailed!
With all these ugly facts staring him in the face, it is not
surprising that the layman puts a very sordid construction upon
official efforts to prop up the tottering case for Vaccination, to
stifle crticisim-and to designate anti-vaccinator as "cranks".
"HE WHO KNOWS ONLY HIS OWN SIDE OF THE CASE KNOWS LITTLE OF THAT."
-J Stuart Mill
My own view, however, is that the majority of medical men still
cling to the obsolete idea that Vaccination is good chiefly because
they have paid very little attention to the considered statements of
those who think otherwise. That most vaccinators mean well, I have no
doubt, but all through the ages well-meaning men have been
responsible for some of the greatest tragedies in history. They have
perpetrated all manner of evils and committed all kinds of follies
under the impresssion that they were doing good, until they learned
better or were put under restraint.
If, as Disraeli says: "Assassination never changed the history of
the world," it has certainly changed the history of the assassinated.
The sooner people who object to having their bodily "history" changed
by law and, in the name of medical science, combine to abolish
Vaccination, the sooner we shall be rid of a grave public danger.
It is not so many centuries ago since folk believed that the
earth was flat.
It is only twenty-five years ago that the petrol-
propelled vehicle was a comic paper joke.
Only twelve years ago
people laughed at the notion of flying in a heavier-than-air machine.
Two years ago few people believed it possible for us to receive by
wireless speech and music from America.
Yet these and many other things have come to pass because in
every instance a few men dared to think for themselves and break away
from cast-iron tradition in the same way as a minority of doctors are
doing to-day. And when this minority becomes a majority Vaccination
will vanish overnight.
The injection into the human body of rotten fluid taken from a
cow suffering from cow-pox to prevent Small-pox was an unholy and
disgusting superstition when performed by those who knew no better.
Its continuance to-day, with all the unassailable evidence against
it, is a crime against humanity.
So much for vaccination!
SMALL-POX A HEALING CRISIS
According to the orthodox definition, Small-pox is an acute,
specific, infectious disease. It is characterised by well defined
febrile (feverish) symptoms and the formation of a distinctive skin
eruption which passes through three stages of vesicule, pustule and
The main body of the Medical Profession, hand in glove with the
Ministry of Health, exercise their great influence and authority
impress upon the public the danger and horror of this disease. The
disfigurement and pock-marking liable to occur as after effects of
Small-pox are the principal bogeys with which, for reasons of their
own, they try to frighten the people.
For over a century Small-pox has had more free advertising than
any other disease. But the same authorities say little about measles,
scarletina or diphtheria, all of which are infinitely less desirable
than Small-pox. The only explanation of the official enthusiasm for
Small-pox, as compared with the more dangerous diseases, is that the
great and profitable Vaccination industry has always flourished on
Those medical men who have conducted independent research on
Small-pox and who prefer to form their own conclusions are, of
course, unaffected by the organised and officially inspired scares so
adroitly arranged at convenient intervals. One of the very first
doctors to realise the truth about Small-pox was the far sighted Dr
Sydenham, who wrote:
"As it is palpable to all the world how fatal Small-pox proves to
many of all ages, so it is clear to me from all the observations that
I can possibly make, that if no mischief be done, either by physician
or nurse, it is the most safe and slight of all diseases."(From: The
Works of Sydenham)
The most advanced doctors of the Continent, America and Great
Britain now agree with the pronouncement of Dr Sydenham, one of the
pioneers of medical progress.
One of the first things we must do is to make the public
understand that the greatest danger with Small-pox is the risk of
being scared into a Vaccination centre!
A Healing Crisis
The sane view of Small-pox is that it is a beneficent disease, or
rather Nature's way of eliminating disease.
When one banishes from one's mind all the professional abuse that
has been hurled at Small-pox for over a hundred years, and when one
studies it calmly and without professional prejudice, it is perceived
that Small-pox is nothing more nor less than a healing crisis.
Small-pox removes impurities by bringing them to the surface and
getting rid of them by pustular eruption, and this mighty effort of
Nature to free the body from undesirable matter is familiar to all
students of Nature cure as "A Healing Crisis."
Small-pox is not a disease contracted by the action of some
mysterious microbe. If the body is almost clogged with poison and
Small-pox is contracted, then the patient will have it thoroughly,
because Nature will make a correspondingly big effort to eliminate
the poison from the system. The temperature will be high and
perspiration profuse to get rid of some of it in that way. A great
area of the skin surface will be in a state of eruption to eradicate
some of it by means of pustules, and unusual thirst will cause the
patient to take more liquid- Nature's means of elimination via the
kidneys. In fact, the more clearly we realise Nature's aims and
needs, the more we appreciate the prefection of this great healing
Patients who take it lightly are those who are less encumbered
with poison than those who take it severely.
The Beneficent Disease
Most people, through wrong living, lack of fresh air, exercise
and right diet, carry within themselves more or less organic poison.
This poison tends to accumulate unless it is kept in check by
suitable baths, right breathing, fasting etc. When it has increased
to such an extent as to interfere seriously with the normal
functioning of the body, then nothing that medical knowledge and
skill can do will be so thoroughly beneficial as an attack of Small-
To those who have had neither the opportunity nor the time to
study the subject, and to those who have always accepted wtihout
question the claptrap that has been written about Small-pox during
the last forty years, this considered statement of fact may sound
like the irresponsible raving of a lunatic.
The Electronic Test
Dr. Abram's instrument, which detects and identifies disease
taints in a few drops of blood or of saliva is increasingly used by
doctors in diagnosing cases. As the test tube is to the analytical
chemist, so is this new electrical machine to the up-to-date doctor.
It shows that the taints found in vaccine are identical with those in
the virus extracted from Small-pox pustules. A recent report states
"lymph, when submitted to the test, show the reactions of
congenital syphilis (bovine type) and some of them show streptococcus
(pus type) and tuberculosis (bovine type)."
Dr Lindlahr further states that:
"The pus-like mass exuding from the Small-pox pustule contains
the virus not only of Small-pox but also of scrofula, psora,
tuberculosis, syphilis, gonorrhoea, anthrax, lumpy jaw and poisons in
the animal or human being from which the virus was secured."
The infallible analysis of this new scientific aid to diagnosis
shows that all the taints contained in the lymph enter the body of
the vaccinated person and remain there, a source of danger until they
are all brought to the surface and forcibly ejected by the healing
The patient who has had the benefit of Small-pox-Nature' greatest
cleansing process-rapidly improves in health, enjoys renewed vitality
and a freedom from all chronic disease taints. Inherited or
contracted taints of syphilis, gonorrhoea and other septic diseases
are all cleared away in the virus which is eliminated.
The Way to treat Small-pox
Once the official panic-propaganda is stopped and the public has
learned to cast out fear the rest will be easy, provided the great
Vaccination business is done away with.
No one fears the advent of a boil or a carbuncle, and, after all,
Small-pox is but a type of carbuncle multiplied and spread over a
larger area instead of being concentrated at one spot. The purpose of
boils, carbuncles and Small-pox is the same-ie to rid the system of
impurity in the form of pus.
Of the orthodox treatment of Small-pox, the less said the better.
Suffice it to add that the diet, the roughly extemporised hospitals
and the treatment are all wrong, because of a general
misunderstanding of the fundamentals of the healing crisis.
The aim should be to assist Nature to perform her task, and to help
the patient back to health and keep free from scars or blemish.
Dr. Lindlahr's Way
Dr. Lindlahr has obtained some entirely successful results from
partial fastings, using only diluted fruit juices. No solid foods are
given, thus relieving the system of the burden of digestion and
liberating more energy for the great eliminative effort.
An alternative method, which I have personally found very
effective in septic cases, is to limit the dietary to potatoes, baked
in their skins, casserole-cooked green vegetables, dry cold toast and
butter, with water as the only drink. My object in this dietary is to
give those foods which, while in the digestive system, absorb and
neutralize toxic poisons. The result is that much of the septic virus
to be eliminated finds its way into the digestive system and is
neutralized, thus lessening the strain of the surface excretion and
incidentally the severity of the skin eruption.
In mild cases full Epsom salts baths should be used, as this
salt, applied to the surface, abstracts toxic poisons. Two pounds of
the salts should be used in each bath, the temperature of which
should be maintained at 104 degrees all the while the patient is in
it, which should be for 30 minutes.
In severe cases where baths are undesirable, the whole skin
should be amply lubricated. A weak carbolic oil or, - better still,
olive oil medicated with peppermint or hydrastis cannadensis, is
effective for this purpose. The use of these oils soothes the skin,
allays irritation and prevents pitting and disfigurement.
'Ware Lymph and Lancet
"Conscience makes cowards of us all," but the trouble with the
Small-pox scare-mongers is that they make cowards of other people!
The truth will prevail and in a little while Small-pox will be
regarded as Nature's supreme disease eradicator. Meanwhile, be not
afraid, for there is nothing to fear save panic and its allies -the
lymph and the lancet.
