COVID Vaccination for natural health?
COVID-19 VACCINATION for Natural Health Patients
Many of my patients have recently asked me my opinion about whether or not to get the current COVID-19 Vaccinations when/if they become available to everyone.
Vaccines inherently aren’t dangerous, it’s how they are delivered that’s usually the problem. They notoriously had “filler” ingredients and transport ingredients (like mercury) that were toxic, causing most of the problems people had with them.
Historically, most vaccines contained either a small amount of live pathogen organism for your body to react to, or some of them were dead specimens but still helped your body develop antibodies. They were defined as either “Live” or “Attenuated”.
Your body received either a deactivated or weakened form of the actual microbe causing the disease, and then you developed antibodies against it. Problems arose in people with depleted immune systems, or because too many different microbes of different kinds were administered all at once, causing immune system overload and inflammation.
COVID-19 vaccines are unique. They actually don’t contain any of the pathogen in them. Meaning that they WILL NOT give you COVID if you get the vaccine. Some of you may have experienced that kind of reaction by having a mild case of the flu after receiving a flu shot. That won’t happen with these new vaccines.
This new form of vaccine, mRNA vaccines, contains material from the virus that causes COVID-19 that gives our cells instructions for how to make a harmless protein that is unique to the virus. After our cells make copies of the protein, they destroy the genetic material from the vaccine.
Our bodies recognize that the protein should not be there and build T-lymphocytes and B-lymphocytes that will remember how to fight the virus that causes COVID-19 if we are infected in the future. In other words, you will develop a natural antibody resistance to the infection.
Now for my personal opinion on COVID-19 vaccinations
I believe that it is our responsibility as citizens to get the vaccination as soon as possible to begin the process of herd immunity for the world. We all must work together and pull past this horrific phase in our country that we are stuck in. If you have a reaction to the vaccine, I can help. Chances are, you might get a sore arm and that’s it. I suggest you get it when you can.

iPlease continue to practice Social Distancing as recommended, and avoid large gatherings until further notice.
Wash your hands frequently, and carry sanitizing wipes with you to wipe off surfaces that others may have recently touched. If I have to go to the grocery store, I walk around with a santizing wipe in my hand so I can use it frequently as needed.
THINKING ABOUT DOING A 2021 DETOX?
It’s a great way to shake off the 2020 blues, change some habits and lose some weight. It’s also the best way to start a new weight loss or lifestyle eating plan. Get going here on my new website!
I have a long history of letting supplements die on my pantry shelves, but the detox supplements changed the game for me. By day 5 on the detox plan, I had energy and mental clarity that I hadn’t seen in years. When you have Hashimoto’s, everyone tells you that brain fog and general sluggishness, are just to be expected– and in my young 30’s I’ve refused to sit back and take that as an answer, which led me to Dr. Mayfield this year. With no other major tweaks to my lifestyle, by day 5 I was sleeping through the night again, waking up with energy, staying focused at work, and sustaining that energy through the day to evening workouts. I used the Well World app almost daily, making sure I remembered to take the supplements, drink enough water, and tracking fluctuations in my weight, bowel movements, and energy. It’s been nice to log those items in one place, making me pay attention to it all, and see if Dr. Mayfield notices any patterns that may be relevant on my healing journey. So far, so good! — Marie R.
