Histamine intolerance is a growing issue. So is chronic illness. Cynthia Janak explains why the hormone histamine may be the underlying reason for vaccine adverse injury as well as disease. Fascinating program. Archived here and on The Liberty Beacon Media Network.
Histamine, Vaccines, and Disease
Holy Hormones Honey!
Wednesday, March 4
7 pm ET – 4 pm PT
Cynthia Janak, vaccine safety awareness advocate, and colleague returns to discuss the connection between histamine, vaccines and disease. Janak is a freelance journalist, mother of three, foster mother of one, and grandmother of five. She has written extensively about her theories on Gardasil mechanisms of harm on Renew America.
On February 1, Cynthia Janak wrote a stunning article entitled: Vaccine Mechanism of Harm Exposed.
“Histamine is a biologically active substance that plays a key role in the body’s inflammatory reaction to injury caused by infection, physical damage or allergy. Histamine is released from cells in response to an antibody called immunoglobulin E (IgE). This antibody may be secreted in response to an invading pathogen such as a virus or bacteria, an allergenic substance such as pollen or in response to injury caused by toxins. Whatever triggers the release of IgE, the response is a flood of histamine that has various different effects depending on the histamine receptor it comes into contact with. (9)”
The significance of this article exposes what might happen prior to vaccination that might lend itself to an adverse reaction. Many of us are aware that in some cases, vaccination becomes that tipping point for adverse neurological, immune and endocrine dysfunction. But still the nagging question which divides those of us who are concerned about vaccine safety and those who insist that vaccines are ‘safe’ – is why are some people injured and others not?
Until we can answer that question, we will remain caught up in the media frenzied debate that has caused a ‘civil war’ amongst Americans who stand on either side of the issue.
There are many who are looking not just at vaccine ingredients and their potential for harm, but more importantly, what – if anything- sets the stage for the adverse injury/death to occur.
April Boden, mother of an autistic child, was the first to explore this issue on Holy Hormones Honey! on Dec 24 – when she raised the issue if birthing practices in the U.S. actually set the stage for autism.
On February 24, Potential Link between Oral Contraceptives and Autism – hypothesizing that the rates of autism in the U.S. also coincided with the rise in the use of oral contraceptives., wrote an article for “Hormones Matter” entitled:
“Oral contraception use is one possible risk factor for the increase in prevalence that has been profoundly overlooked in the biomedical and epidemiologic literature. Interestingly, as the prevalence of ASD has risen over the last fifty years, so has the prevalence of the usage of oral contraceptives. Usage of oral contraceptives in the United States has increased from 1 million women in 1962 to almost 11 million women today. Because oral contraceptives were created to mimic natural human hormones and disrupt endogenous endocrine function to inhibit pregnancy, there is good reason for concern that the synthetic hormonal components may be causing the harmful neurodevelopmental effects that lead to the increase in ASDs.”
Ms. Strifert, states what many menstrual health advocates have known for a long time – that synthetic hormones are known endocrine disruptors.
I decided to look into the potential connection between histamine intolerance and the use of oral contraceptives and found this excellent resource on That Paleo Guys blog on Histamine Intolerance:
The following quote shows why high levels of histamine can cause dysmenorrhoea, potentially exacerbated by the use of oral contraceptives;
“In the female genital tract, histamine is produced mainly by mast cells, endothelial and epithelial cells in the uterus and ovary. Women with histamine intolerance often suffer cyclical headache and dysmenorrhoea. In addition to a contraction promoting effect, this is attributable to the fact that histamine, via the H1 receptors, increases oestradiol production markedly, but progesterone production only mildly (e1). The painful uterine contractions associated with dysmenorrhoea are caused by an increased production of prostaglandin F2a in the endometrium, which is promoted by oestrogens and inhibited by progesterone.
“Histamine can therefore intensify dysmenorrhoea via an increase in oestrogen production. Conversely, oestrogen can affect histamine activity: the cyclical rise in plasma oestrogen was shown to be associated with a larger skin weal in skin prick tests (e2).”
There is also an extensive list of foods with high levels of histamine included in this article.
Cynthia will continue to explore the precursors to vaccine reaction – and what we may be able to do as consumers to prevent injury and death.
Although the vaccine debate continues, we are also beginning to see a backlash on legislation that may threaten our right to informed consent and personal exemptions. If that continues mandatory vaccinations will be forced on all of us. We have no other option to research and educate ourselves on how to prevent vaccine reactions. We have to take back our power. Thanks to researchers like Cynthia Janak and Kim Elizabeth Strifert, and autism mothers like April Boden, the door to understanding vaccine injury has now opened.
