Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants: Another
Reason to Shun Vaccines

Why are autoimmune disorders on the rise
in a big way? For several years,
researchers have been sifting through
evidence that might answer that
question, and recently the pieces
started coming together with the
discovery of a condition known as
autoimmune syndrome induced by adjuvants
(ASIA). Adjuvants are substances added
to vaccines to increase the body’s
immune response to them, but they may
end up tipping the scale in favor of
search for answers began in way back in 1964, when vaccinated patients began
reporting diverse symptoms following treatment with silicone. As reports of
other autoimmune disorders in the vaccinated started cropping up, adjuvants
became the prime suspects. When research documented the truth of these
suspicions, the term autoimmune syndrome induced by adjuvants was born.
War syndrome, macrophagic myofasciitis syndrome, sick building syndrome, and
post-vaccination syndrome are other disorders included under the ASIA diagnosis.
Biomaterials other than silicone were also considered as triggering factors for
the diagnosis when linked with previous exposure to a vaccine adjuvant.
documenting of this diagnosis has been a sleeper, with virtually no mention of
it in mainstream media.
of the problems with vaccines is that adjuvants are challenging to develop
because compounds that artificially stimulate strong immunity often induce
significant neurotoxicity. Though questions about the safety of vaccines have
persisted, it appears that more attention is paid to making them appear
affective than is paid to making them safe.
the middle of the last century, the most widely used adjuvant in vaccines has
been a form of aluminum salts known as alum. This was the only adjuvant used in
the US until monophosphoryl lipid A was added in 2009. Aluminum has been linked
to several disease states including Alzheimer’s disease and breast cancer.
Adjuvants may be behind chronic fatigue and
last year a study was published with the name of “Chronic fatigue syndrome and
fibromyalgia following immunization with the hepatitis B vaccine: another angle
of the autoimmune (auto-inflammatory) syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA)”. The
objective was to gather demographic and clinical characteristics of patients
diagnosed with fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), and apply the
criteria for ASIA to them with the goal of identifying common characteristics
that may suggest an association between the diseases and the vaccine.
patient had received the hepatitis B vaccine between 1990 and 2008. None of the
patients had CFS or fibromyalgia before receiving the vaccine. Most were female
and the mean age was 28. Forty-two percent of patients completed the full
series of hepatitis B vaccine even though they were experiencing negative
effects at the time.
surprisingly, each of the 19 participants met the criteria to be diagnosed with
ASIA. “This means that all individuals
experienced inflammation that triggered immune injury from the vaccination and
aluminum salts, and they developed CFS or FM after the Hep B shots”,
said wellness expert Byron Richards.
Participants experienced multiple symptoms, including neurological,
musculoskeletal, cognitive, memory, gastrointestinal and skin.
study authors concluded that cases of CFS and fibromyalgia can be related to
immunization as part of the ASIA syndrome. They cited three primary risk

According to the CDC, all children should get their first dose of hepatitis B
vaccine at birth and should have completed the vaccine series by 6 through 18
months of age. Yet according to Richards, even healthy young adults became
diseased after receiving it. For him the study “demonstrated
that the adjuvants and vaccine exposure took young healthy adults, most of whom
did not have known autoimmune disorders, and tipped the scales into the chronic
debilitating autoimmune disorders of CFS and fibromyalgia.”
Preventing vaccine injury
accepting vaccination is the best way to prevent vaccine injury. Remember that
the participants in the study mentioned in this article were generally healthy
before receiving the vaccinations and the adjuvant they contained. Following
vaccinations their good health was gone, perhaps for the rest of their lives.
Normalize your own innate immunity and that of your children, and prevent the
fire of autoimmunity from ever getting started by frequently eating
such foods as garlic, homemade chicken soup, sweet potatoes, mushrooms and
antibiotics and other pharmaceuticals. Get plenty of exercise, fresh air and a
good night’s sleep every night. Stay away from GMOs, foods containing artificial
ingredients, foods grown with pesticides, and foods to which you are intolerant.
Throw out antibacterial products such as hand sanitizer and antibacterial soap.
Clean your house with nothing but vinegar, lemon and baking soda, and clean your
body without products containing ingredients you can’t pronounce. Get plenty of
sunshine without the use of sunscreen. Drink kefir frequently and give it to
your children. Kefir, a yogurt-like fermented beverage, promotes beneficial
bacteria in the gut which are the sentinels of the immune system.
Richards recommends restoring antioxidant status with glutathione precursors,
curcumin, lipoic acid, silymarin, coenzyme Q10, and omega 3 oils. These
compounds help balance inflammation and immune activity. According to him,
animal studies have shown that curcumin and coenzyme Q10 are beneficial in
reducing adjuvant induced arthritis.
media can make you think you’re some kind of troll if you don’t relish vaccines.
But don’t let it lull you into complacency. Your entire future may be at stake.
