Why has there not been any mention of the potentially adverse effects of Merck’s cervical cancer vaccination, Gardasil® in relationship to the timing of the inoculation and where a young woman is in her menstrual cycle? This information is especially critical considering the vaccination is recommended for adolescent girls from the age of nine to young women up to 26-years.

Why is it that women are constantly forced into a male medical model which blatantly ignores their menstrual health and administers drugs, surgeries, and vaccinations without any regard to where they are in their hormone cycle?

This is outrageous. Even though women are asked to fill out the date of their last menstrual period (LMP) that information is used primarily to note that a woman is not pregnant. But it is much more valuable than that; the date of the LMP could actually be indicative of why that woman is in the doctor’s office to begin with.

Women’s hormone cycles are not just a cyclical pain; they are our integral link to all the other cycles in life. Our cycles are so much more than hormones “raging” through our bodies. Your hormone cycle earns you the right to be a healer, a spiritualist, and a wise woman, respected by all. Living with your cycle instead of against it or denying it – gives you the freedom to “be”; to laugh, to cry, to change your mind, your career, your relationship or lifestyle and to know the reason why!

HPV Vaccines as Endocrine Disruptors

In 2010, Cynthia Janak and I created a power point presentation for the FDA based on government research and peer-reviewed studies as to why we felt that the HPV vaccines Gardasil and Cervarix were ‘endocrine system’ disruptors. Janak and I were also aware that the Merck was wanting to extend the use for Gardasil for women up to 45 years old. In fact, Merck tried on 4 difference occasions to extend the marketing of their potentially dangerous vaccine.

Hormone Imbalance – The Silent Epidemic – Women Speak Out

This is an insidious ‘War on Women’. On the one hand we have had to fight for our reproductive rights and the availability of birth control – on the other hand it is the same birth control that is slowly killing us.

Unveiling the Culprit – Is Foreign DNA Contamination the Autistic Villain behind Biologic Vaccine Injuries?

Foreign DNA is a term most medical consumers are not aware of. However, common sense alone raises questions about the dangers of foreign DNA – otherwise known as recombinant DNA.

HPV Vaccines & Cervical Cancer: When One Less Becomes One More

In 2006, the HPV vaccine Gardasil touted to prevent cervical cancer was introduced to a public generally unaware of the Human Papillomavirus or its threat to adolescent girls and women. However, the public was quickly informed of the dangers of the virus when Merck launched an aggressive advertising campaign designed to capture the attention of girls/women ages 9 to 26 with a catchy jingle and their now famous line: “One Less Girl to Get Cervical Cancer.” Adolescent girls were dancing and singing that they will be ‘one less girl’ in unison with the award-winning TV commercial.
