I look forward to this retreat all year. The moment it ends, I"m ready to book the next year and return to the cafe for more delicious food. Set just outside Yosemite National Park, this retreat combines the compassionate yoga instruction of Jena Baird of Dharma Yoga Loft in Paso Robles, CA and the Holistic Health and Integrative Yoga of Stephanie Austin with Wellness by Mother Nature to form a one-of-a-kind women-only mountain retreat. Early bird registration thru August 22nd. Click image below for the wonderful details.
Vaccines are not "the cause" of autism, ADHD, autoimmune disorders, or other diseased states. However they absolutely and unarguably alter the checks and balances systems inside the body. They alter innate healing mechanisms and change the internal terrain; and if genetically susceptible, it will forever affect your life or that of your children.
The variety of symptoms one person might experience verses another makes it difficult to label the original cause; whether your symptoms are mild food sensitivities, environmental allergies or greater effects such as asthma, autoimmunity, paralyzation, and death. I myself was diagnosed with an extremely rare autoimmune disease called dermatomyositis within a year of receiving a hepatitis B vaccine as required by my state employment at the time. There are several clinical cases documenting the onset of this specific disease after that specific vaccine.(1) We must be allowed to make an educated choice on when and how much we vaccinate our children. For the countless reasons that make us so unique, we cannot be mandated to vaccinate across the board. Diseases (ie. diabetes, autoimmunity, alzheimers, cancer, etc) are not solely based upon genetics - meaning just because your family members have "it" does not automatically mean you are susceptible. Onset of disease is a result of that individual's gut health, immunity and the environmental triggers (ie. allergies, vaccines, injury, etc) that add up to create a domino effect, slowly cascading toward a diseased state.
Have you ever seen what happens to the myelin sheaths when exposed to micro amounts of mercury - such as found in vaccines? Check out this video (4) from the University of Calgary to visually see how Mercury causes neurodegeneration. https://youtu.be/IHqVDMr9ivo
It will completely eat up the myelin sheaths which insulate the nerves and assist with conductivity. ABC recently published a story (6) on a 12-year-old girl who was paralyzed at 9-years-old within one week of receiving the flu vaccine. This girl spoke multiple languages and lived a regular 9-year-old life, but she is essentially functioning as a newborn now. She's been diagnosed with a very rare disorder that involves the myelin sheath being damaged within 5 days of getting the flu vaccine. Read the entire article and use it to weigh your decisions rather than blindly agreeing to your next shot. All you have to do is read the vaccine inserts and that will be alarming enough. http://www.abcactionnews.com/news/region-tampa/a-flu-shot-is-blamed-for-paralyzing-marysue-grivna-the-12-year-old-needs-a-room-of-her-own
I am not here to tell you not to vaccinate. However, I do want everyone to read. I want you to cross-check the United States vaccine schedule with other countries (7) and ask why we vaccinate so much so early in life. As you will see from that video (4), mercury will affect the newly generated processes in the brain and nervous system. A child's myelin sheaths are still developing after they are born. Vaccine injury is not myth. We need Freedom of Choice, safer vaccines, a different schedule, and the standard implementation of homeopathic vaccinations (8) without the detrimental side effects. If a safer option is in fact available, why are we not using it?
Vaccines, like any medication, are known to have side effects. "Aside from those directly attributed to the specific vaccine, here are other potential effects from artificially introducing pathogens (8):
Dr. R. Moskowitz, M.D. presents a disturbing theory as to what reaction the vaccine actually creates in the body. He starts by describing the immune reaction in case of normal infection and goes on to describe the reaction to vaccine. This will be quoted in some length because I find that the discussion helps to understand the possible long-term influences of vaccines on the immune system.
“The process of coming down with and recovering from an acute illness like the measles involves a general mobilization of the entire immune system, including:
Moskowitz continues by saying that in his eyes vaccination does not confer a genuine immunity to the disease, but rather some sort of chronic immune tolerance to it. Moskowitz theorizes that these latent viruses are connected to the huge increase in autoimmune diseases, which is the most worrying medical phenomenon of our time."

We need to be educated by doing our own research. Don't blame your pharmacist: I know a couple who don't vaccinate their children and others who seek my advice for natural remedies. I also know of oncologists who wouldn't select chemo or radiation for their own family members. Don't blame your doctor: it is their livelihood to support the pharmaceuticals they are trained in to help cover up your symptoms. See me to help safely remove your allergies (10) and do your research, starting with the vaccine insert, and documentaries like Trace Amounts and Vaxxed to make your decisions. And a good book to reference is Saying No to Vaccines: A Resource Guide for All Ages by Dr. Sherri Tenpenny. The information is available to us and well published if we only start to look.
Lincoln and His Team of Homeopaths
"inherent in homeopathy is a profound respect for the "wisdom of the body," and therefore, homeopaths tend to maintain a significant skepticism of and criticism for using powerful drug treatments that tend to suppress symptoms and push a person's disease deeper into his/her body and mind."

Certified Holistic Health and Nutrition Practitioner, Stephanie Austin, was guided into holistic living in 2002 when she was diagnosed with Dermatomyositis, an uncommon autoimmune disease affecting the skin and muscle.
Opting for education rather than medication, Austin enrolled in a Holistic Health Practitioner program in 2004 after realizing she'd been gifted with disease so that she may learn to heal herself and later teach others to do the same.
Since her education, Austin has released over 60 pounds and conquered years of junk food addiction through holistic healing and nutrition techniques that she now passes onto others through her business, Wellness by Mother Nature.
Austin has been the Director of Education and Board Member for the nonprofit organization, The Wellness Kitchen. She is the recipient of the 2015 Outstanding Graduate Award from www.ACHS.edu.
Austin is an author, coach and speaker who empowers people on the healing value of nutrition and the innate self-healing abilities of a body in balance.
She has helped hundreds of people achieve balance through methods such as meditation, herbs, movement, supplements, aromatherapy, homeopathy, nutrition, mind-body connection, energy healing and by closely listening to the needs of her clients.
It is awareness that brings change, not your effort. Why does it happen through awareness? - because the awareness changes you. And when you are different, the world is different. It is not a question of creating a different world, it is only a question of creating a different you. You are your world; so if you change, the world changes.
