What you need to know about SB 276, your rights are at stake!


Most of you know that I have taught vaccine safety/education classes for. For those of you who have yet to engage me in the conversation, know that you can at any moment, in a completely non-judgemental and unemotional way.

I love teaching about this very divisive topic. If it wasn’t for the media, we would not be so divisive.

Trust that this is NOT an anti-vaccine email. I write this email with as much humility and love for humanity as I can.

For those of you who have been to one of my classes or have talked to me about it, you know I view this subject with a lot of logic, science, forethought and consciousness.

I’ve studied this topic and I have been driven to do so because of my own personal experience with my patients to which I was never given answers by our medical systems.  Seeing patients lives changed before my eyes and more importantly lives of children.

Having had family in the medical field, and having a bad experience with my own personal health in the medical system I knew that I needed to research real facts.

For those of you who do not know about the recent history of vaccination legislation in California please read on. This is a very abbreviated list.

In 2012, AB2109 was passed which required parents to obtain their doctor’s signature on a government form prior to enrollment in public school if they wish to skip one or more vaccines for their child. The bill required all parents exercising their right to choose their own vaccination schedule for their children to sit down with a medical provider and have a government document signed showing they know the risks of the decision. Prior to this, parents could freely submit their own documents – legislators primarily wanted parents educated about the risks of disease.

In 2015, with SB277 the California State Legislature took away personal belief and religious exemptions for vaccinations. This left parents who were looking to educate themselves on other options regarding the vaccine schedule and do something different than what the CDC mandates to find a pediatrician who would be open-minded about the parents’ right to choose. A big change with SB277 was the medical exemption became necessary for both public and private school systems. The pediatrician now had full control over this medical intervention and legislators promised the doctor-patient relationship was of the utmost importance.

This year, with SB276, it is different. They are removing your pediatrician’s ability to make a clinical determination regarding your child’s ability to be vaccinated or qualify for a medical exemption if necessary. We can clearly see how slowly yet pervasively our rights surrounding vaccines are being stripped. You doctor will no longer by law be able to do anything outside of the CDC mandated schedule. Even some severe reactions following vaccines may not qualify for an exemption. Family history, genetic testing, etc will no longer qualify for exemption. Your only option is homeschooling if you want anything other than the CDC mandates schedule for vaccines for your children. The power now lies solely with the state. A public health official who has never met your child now has full control as to whether they should or should not be vaccinated.

What you need to know is:

  • There are only 0.7% of children with medical exemptions in California.  Even with the small increase in medical exemptions (because personal belief exemptions got taken out), there has been a net DECREASE of over 10,5000 exemptions since 2015.
  • The CA medical board has already dismissed the majority of investigated complaints with NO VIOLATIONS FOUND.  Additionally , health officers discovered few or no problematic medical exemptions according to a recent study.
  • If a handful of invalid exemptions exist, the CA Medical Board should address them individually without punishing all the medically fragile children in California with legitimate exemptions written by doctors who followed the law.
  • Vaccine injured children, genetically susceptible children, and their at risk siblings need to be protected with medical exemptions, and licensed physicians are the only ones qualified to write them.

  • There are NO long term inert placebo controlled trials to prove safety for ANY vaccines. NONE.

  • Since 1986, a law was passed making vaccine companies (pharmaceutical companies), doctors, hospitals, pharmacies, etc. untouchable– they can not be held liable for any vaccine injuries.

  • Nearly $5 billion have been paid out from your tax dollars for damages, injuries and death from vaccines.

  • In 1986, there were 11 required doses of childhood vaccines and as of next year (2020), there will be 75 required doses of childhood vaccines.  By the age of 18. This schedule has never been tested for safety and it has been clearly shown the multiple doses on one day leads to injury.

  • In 2016, 59,117 injuries were reported to VAERS (CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) including 432 deaths, 1091 permanent disabilities, 4132 hospitalizations, 10,284 emergency room visits. AND the Department of Health and Human Services has determined that fewer than 1% of adverse events are ever reported. (~5.9 million injuries in 2016).

  • This is about campaign contributions, not health. Pharmaceutical companies have donated millions to lawmakers who push mandatory vaccination and attack exemptions.

In the end, please do your own research. I don’t claim to know everything, but what I know for sure is the importance of following your intuition to make a mindful decision.

Most of our patients are fully vaccinated. Many do a delayed schedule via Dr Sears or Dr Paul Thomas’s protocols. Both of whom are pro-vaccine, pro-science and pro-informed consent and I frequently recommend their work.

I hope you know by now that I am not anti-vaccine.  Like a growing number of pediatricians, MDs, scientists and lawmakers, I am pro-informed consent, pro-safety and pro-science.  I will have you consider that in a liability-free market (like vaccines are), industry is allowed to run rampant and they have run their course.

Consider the reason you exclusively hear vaccines are only and always “safe and effective” is because the largest lobby in DC is the pharmaceutical companies (by 4 times) and the largest sponsors for all major media sources are pharmaceutical companies.


My call to action is below:

  1. Attend the rally to oppose SB276 on April 24th at the state capitol.

  2. Consider donating to A Voice for Choice. This is our state’s advocacy group and they are looking to hire one more lobbyist for Sacramento. Know that on any given day, the pharmaceutical companies have more lobbyists on capitol hill that we do legislators.

  3. Call your local representative to voice your opinion and protect your doctor-patient relationship and your rights to make conscious choices surrounding childhood vaccines. Below is a script you can use when you call! They need to hear from you!


Thank you for reading this email. Please take action. If this email offends you, I apologize. The purpose of this email is to inform, not to offend. Our freedoms are at stake and this affects the lives of all of us and our children.


Ps. Here is the script:

“Hi, my name is ____ and I am a constituent.  I am calling to ask Senator ____ to OPPOSE S.B. 276, which would severely restrict medical exemptions to vaccination.

Medical exemptions are already very difficult to obtain. This bill is trying to make the process even more arduous.

The doctor-patient relationship must be protected.  Only a doctor should be able to determine whether or not a child is medically contracted to vaccination.

An appointed official who has never examined my child should not be making medical decisions that carry the risk of serious injury and death.  Adverse reactions are clearly listed on all vaccine manufacturer package inserts.

This bill also requires that medical exemptions be tracked in a government database, which creates potential HIPAA and FERPA privacy issues.

I urge Senator _____ to oppose S.B. 276.”

If you need anymore information or research I will have printable documents at each office.   The only way to get this to not pass is we HAVE to show up.  Posting on facebook will no longer work.  We have to be active and show up to our legislators.  If this gets passed, it will be the end to any human rights, and homeschooled children won’t be safe either.

Please pass this on.

With love.

How Toxic Loads Lead to Auto-Immunity

How Toxic Loads leads to Auto-immunity

Happy Monday Everyone.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and a great thanksgiving weekend.  I am so very thankful for you all and how easy it has been this year to transition to San Diego.

This month we have been focusing all our discussions about Autoimmunity.  The first week we talked about how brain inflammation from improper movement in the bones of the head can lead to autoimmunity, the second week was about nutrition and our food sources, last week was about emotional traumas.  Finally, this week we will finish out this month with information about toxic loads and how those can lead into autoimmunity.

What do I mean by Toxins?

Well, we’ve previously talked in week two about food toxins, as in if your food source is GMO or non-organic, then it is loaded with toxins.  Basically, you are eating round up and materials that are foreign to our body and ones we cannot digest.

Other than food sources, what are other ways we can get toxins?

1.  Beauty Products, air fresheners, cleaning supplies.  Any product you put in the air or on your skin that is not organic or has parabens, fragrance or chemicals is going to be a huge source of toxic load for you. Beauty products like toothpaste, lotion, youth creams, soap, shampoo, conditioner, perfumes and makeup are full of toxic chemicals.  Laundry detergent and sheets are even worse.  Anything with “fragrance” label has over 10,000 chemicals in it.

2. Water sources. Most of our water, unless you have your own well in an area where the soil hasn’t been sprayed, isn’t pure.  Tap water is loaded with chlorine that is a neurotoxin and also depletes our body of iodine.  (hence, a lot of thyroid conditions).  Going to plastic water bottles is not a better option either.  Plastic is such a huge toxin, and it’s not just BPA anymore there’s other BP’s out there that are also harmful.  It’s a hormone disrupter and just all out toxin.  Those brita water filters and such are not sufficient enough to clean out all the impurities. Studies have shown that pharmaceuticals, like prescription and over the counter drugs, are being found in tap water. We also shower in chlorine water, swim in it, ect.  It seeps into our skin, and absorbs into it.  Getting shower and tub purifiers can also be really helpful.

The best water i’ve found is Kangan Water.  For more information, check it out here:


3.  Vaccines.  Unfortunately, this has been an ever increasing problem.  I’ve seen many in my office even within the past month with vaccine injuries because of the toxins that are in them.  Please do your research.  I know in California they make it hard for us, but it has to stop here, or else it will be enforced everywhere.  For more information about all the toxins in vaccines and their detrimental effects, and also how they can CAUSE autoimmunity there are many resources.  The Truth About Vaccines documentary series is a wonderful series, or learntherisk.org. 

Vaccines contain adjuvants that can cause autoimmune reactions as well.  Things like aluminum, polysorbate 80, formaldehyde, ect. causes the immune system to rev up, which is the point of putting them in the vaccines (to create an immune reaction.  The problem is it also causes abnormal immune system reactions because they are so toxic.

Vaccines DO NOT create immunity.  

4. Infections.  Infections like mold are autoimmune triggers. The mold can even get into the brain, and the immune system can attack the brain.  Toxic mold inhalation and the dried spore coatings can cause autoimmune reactions to take place.  Other chronic infections like protozoa can disrupt the digestion so much, that that immune system gets so irregular and leaky gut occurs.

5.  Look in your mouth. Infections in the mouth can be a huge immune system depletor.  Don’t let infections go on in the mouth.  It can be really harmful.  And root canals aren’t perfect they can leave behind infections.  Consulting with a holistic functional dentist is best.  Many dentists will tell you having mercury fillings is fine, or, your tooth doesn’t look bad even though theres an infection.  Run from these people.  We know through research mercury is completely toxic. Mercury fillings and root canals with metal are still utilized.  Mercury toxicity is huge for creating immune reactions.

The chronic inflammation limits detoxification, the toxins disrupt our immunity, they have a negative affect on our micro biome, and have an irritating effect on the GI tract. It also causes liver and intestinal miscommunication, organ dysregulation, autonomic dysregulation which then extends into autoimmunity. 

I’ve seen many cases change dramatically when the metal is out of there mouth, and it is clear of infections.

6. Cookware.The last thing you want to do with your fresh, healthy ingredients is to cook them in a toxin pan. Non-stick coatings are made with perfluorinated chemicals that not only leach into food but are persistent in your body and the environment – meaning they never go away. It’s not just pots and pans – stay away from non-stick versions of bakeware, rice cookers and other cooking appliances.

Action: Toss out your non-stick cookware and switch to safe, non-toxic cast iron, stainless steel, enamel or ceramic cookware.

7. Mattress. 

Given the fact that we spend 1/3 of our lives in bed, it’s important that it be a healthy place to rest. Sadly, the time you spend in bed each night may be harming your health rather than enhancing it. Toxic flame retardants, formaldehyde and other chemicals used in mattresses, pillows and bedding may be slowly off gassing into the air you are breathing while you sleep.

Action: If you are in the market for a new mattress or bedding, make sure it is flame retardant free and made with natural and organic materials.


8. EMF’s

Electro magnetic frequencies, from cell phones, lap tops, phones, smart meters, ect. have been shown to disrupt our microbiome, and open up the blood brain barrier.  This means our innate immune system is hindered.  Here is a study showing the EMF autoimmune connection.

www.nbci.nlm. nih.gov/pubmed/27412293


These are all sources of toxins that are usually just in our home!! Not to mention what’s in our environment.  The point is to best control what’s in your environment as best as you can .

The key with autoimmunity is changing the biochemistry of your body to a state of health and well being so those improper reactions will no longer flourish.  The body does not just go haywire for no reason.  As we’ve seen this month, there are many causes for the immune system to react in a dysfunctional way, but just depleting the immune system by conventional methods will never fix the problem.

A huge part in autoimmunity is cleaning out these toxins and eliminating your exposure as much as possible.  I know it may seem like a daunting task, but in reality it’s something we ALL must do if we want to prevent things and heal from current conditions.

Most importantly, there IS hope.  You do have to do your part as mentioned, but there is freedom from autoimmunity and I see it all the time.  You just really have to find all the fires, eliminate them, clear them out, and then start to rebuild.

Specifically for toxins you need to support those elimination pathways first, and then begin to clear toxins.  You can’t clear toxins when your pathways are all gummed up.  Its not safe and dangerous.

As always I’m here to help.  If you know anyone or you yourself deal with autoimmunity, reach out.  Putting all these factors into care is my specialty.

ON the spotlight this week is  DoTerra’s Rose.  Most know of the amazing smell of Rose, but the benefits of rose in EMF research is promising.  Because it’s such a high resonance, it has been found to help combat the effects of EMF damage.

doTERRA Rose Touch combines Fractionated Coconut Oil with Bulgarian Damask Rose essential oil, one of the world’s most recognized fragrances in both personal care products and perfumes. Rose oil is incredibly time consuming and expensive to produce—242,000 hand-picked rose petals make about five ounces of rose oil. However, the benefits Rose oil offers are well worth the effort. For this reason, Rose oil is the perfect addition to the doTERRA Touch line as it makes this unique oil more widely available to everyone. In addition, dilution actually enhances the effectiveness
of the oil, and the roller ball packaging makes applications and usage options both affordable and convenient.

Known for its sweet floral fragrance, doTERRA Rose Touch is a must-have addition to your essential oil collection for skincare, mood, and personal fragrance purposes.

Rose Oil Uses

  1. If you love the sweet floral note in perfumes, Rose oil is the perfect natural fragrance for you. Apply Rose Touch to your neck, behind your ears and to your wrists to enjoy the rose’s romantic and unique scent—free of additives or chemicals.
  2. The scent of Rose oil brings with it the power to uplift your soul and change your mood for the better. For those times when your day seems clouded by stress or worry, ease your emotions by applying doTERRA Rose Touch to your heart and pulse points.
  3. Rose essential oil is known to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections and promote healthy-looking, radiant skin. We recommend applying doTERRA Rose Touch directly on skin imperfections both in the morning and at night. Not only will it help reduce the appearance of skin imperfections, it will also promote an even skin tone and healthy complexion.
  4. Need another reason to include Rose Touch in your skin care routine? Your skin needs the appropriate levels of moisture to be able to function properly, which means hydration is key. When you’re dehydrated or your skin care routine removes too much moisture from the skin, your body will react by producing too much oil. Rose oil helps balance the moisture levels in your skin, which will keep your skin looking its best.

If don’t have an account or are interested let me know!

Ginseng Chicken Soup.

A great way to help reverse EMF damage is the eat foods that help reverse EMF damage.  One herb is ginseng.  This is a wonderful nutrient that can help to reverse EMF damage.

Add some cilantro in and you can help decrease mercury toxicity as well!


  • 2 cornish hens
  • 1/4 cup sweet (glutinous) rice
  • 10 cloves garlic peeled
  • 2 pieces ginseng each 2 inches long
  • 1/2 inch fresh ginger sliced
  • 7 dried jujube dates
  • 6 chestnuts peeled
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 scallion chopped

Sesame Salt

  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • a few shakes black pepper
  • a few pinches toasted sesame seeds


  1. Soak sweet rice for one hour in water; drain. Stuff each cornish hen with 3 cloves garlic, 1 piece ginseng, 2 dates and 2 chestnuts. Spoon in soaked sweet rice until full. Gently place in saucepan so cornish hens sit snugly in pan. Add ginger, remaining ginseng, garlic, jujube dates, chestnuts, and salt. Cover with water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer, covered for 1/2 hour. Turn cornish hens over and continue to cook for another 1/2 hour.To serve, break cornish hens apart and serve in bowls, with stuffing and broth. Serve with sesame salt and chopped scallions on the side.





That is all for now.

Wishing you all a happy and healthy week.
