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." (continue reading this extensive article under resources 8)
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.
I recently posted the following question on my Facebook page: "Out of curiosity... who of you suffers from allergies? Seasonal or food... either way." I received several PMs and comments including:
How Many People Have Food Allergies?
But I Can I Help...
The reason I asked is because I got trained this year in Dr. Tenpenny's SRT (Sensitivity Removal Technique) that not only saves money on allergy assessment and treatment, but time too. Many other allergy tests merely diagnose you but do nothing for treatment. Others add treatment to the mix but it requires dozens of appointments and thousands of dollars. My colleague, Paula Vetter, a Registered Nurse with over 30 years experience, trained me after providing me with my own assessment and treatment. I'm amazed.
There are only a handful of people in the Western US offering this Sensitivity Removal Technique (SRT), which a 5-year clinical study showed 86% of people still 100% allergy free after their initial treatment. Results are likely greater than 5 years had the study been longer.
SRT uses three well-known medical sciences that best work with the energetic systems of the body: kinesiology, homeopathy, and acupressure.
Kinesiology (muscle testing) is used to determine which allergen(s) you are sensitive to. Homeopathy is used to represent the allergens in testing viles, as well as the Traditional Chinese Medical balancing viles. While you're holding the allergen(s), a series of acupressure points along the spine are activated to open channels in the central nervous system. This begins what can be related to as "reprogramming your computer" which teaches your body to look at these allergens in a neutral way, rather than as a threat (allergy). Several additional points are activated on the arms and legs to open up the meridian lines through the body. You will then be given 15 minutes to rest quietly as the final part of the treatment.
Your first appointment is one hour and includes the allergy assessment. Subsequent appointments are 30 minutes and include the actual treatment. In order to best respect your time and finances, viles in each allergen type (ie. food, pollen, environmental, etc) are grouped together and treated at one time. This greatly reduces the number of visits you'll need for treatment (avg. 2 to 4) as compared to methods like NAET with treatments pushing the double and triple digits.
After your treatment, you will be asked to maintain a strict avoidance of the allergen(s) treated as well as food/beverages (except water) for 3 hours so make sure you eat before the treatment appointment.
The process is totally painless and super simple but EXTREMELY powerful and proven effective. After the completion of SRT, you are encouraged to have an annual checkup to keep your acupressure systems clear of allergens and symptoms, and to be sure no new allergens are starting to accumulate in your body.
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."

Coach Stephanie educates on How and When to Use Homeopathy in online and local classes. Details at www.WellnessByMotherNature.com
In a client phone call from this past week, a program alumni who has re-enrolled in the 6-Week Restoring Wellness program told me how much benefit they experienced from the first time around and how they look forward to implementing new things, such as circadian rhythm eating, this time around.
This seems to be the consensus from those who re-enroll in the program - they discover things they never saw the first time or they are ready to implement a new idea or lesson that felt overwhelming the first time around.
The first time around, the idea of eating gluten-free, low-glycemic foods with zero food-like products was daunting enough for some. Even some folks who have enrolled more than twice suggest that the second time was when they really read more about understanding homeopathy, how to make a natural first aid kit or why tinctures work so quickly. Many alumni are still trying some of the recipes for the first time, as there are many to choose from.
The next enrollment begins October 11th. Check out the September Newsletter for Early Bird Enrollment specials. Returning alumni get 50% off.

Iridology is so rewarding.
Prior to seeing the health questionnaire or asking the client why they are seeing me for a Holistic Health Consultation, I take a macro photograph of their eyes and begin to note what I see using Iridology.
Iridology is both an art and a science that dates back further than Western Medicine into the times of Ancient Egypt. By studying the fibers, patterns and colors of the iris and other parts of the eye, an overall picture of the health of your body‘s tissues and organs can be made. Inflammation, toxins, injuries, circulation, degrees of healing, the under or over functioning of organs and so much more can be seen by the trained Iridologist.
The first thing out of my mouth with a recent client was, "Wow, I'm seeing a significant back injury/trauma spanning the entire middle region and radiating into the shoulders. Have you ever injured your back that you know of?"
Her reply was followed by an immediate belief in Iridology. She said, "I was hit by a semi-truck only 3 week ago and my entire back is injured. It hurts so much."
I proceeded to point out additional ailments and diagnoses she had received by medical tests in the past. Your eyes show so much more than you realize.
More on Iridology here:
"Host lifestyle affects human microbiota on daily timescales"
Here, we link over 10,000 longitudinal measurements of human wellness and action to the daily gut and salivary microbiota dynamics of two individuals over the course of one year. These time series show overall microbial communities to be stable for months. However, rare events in each subjects’ life rapidly and broadly impacted microbiota dynamics.
Our findings suggest that although human-associated microbial communities are generally stable, they can be quickly and profoundly altered by common human actions and experiences.
My story for Information Press this month is on Circadian Rhythm Eating - which suggests there is a right time of day to eat specific foods.
Nutritionist Linda Morgan from the University of Surrey conducted a study where she gave participants the exact same foods during PM hours and in AM hours. She tested their blood sugar levels after each mealtime. She found that blood glucose levels after the evening meal were much higher than when the exact same meal was eaten during the AM hours. Other studies conducted on mice showed they were 40 percent leaner, had lower blood pressure and cholesterol by eating during the eight most active hours of the day.

"The coolest part for me (ok there are many) is that YOU are here to coach and support us. Not just give us the information and expect that we absorb it and implement it all. You are invested in our lifestyle change. THAT is awesome to me. Sometimes I need to ask questions and discuss things you've presented for it to make sense. That extra step you're providing, the personal coaching, is what makes the difference."
"I've come to the realization that I will likely never go back to the way I used to eat. Even just a few days into this, I realize what poor choices I have always made and it's this awareness that fosters long term change. I still miss certain things and may not give them up forever, but the foundation of how I used to eat has been obliterated and many new habits have already been formed. Super exciting!! Thank you Stephanie!"
Hundreds of clients and students have come through Wellness by Mother Nature interested in relief for acute and chronic health concerns; weight management; dietary plans; Science-based classes on Eating for Healing; detox cleanses; recipes; homeopathic and herbal remedies; pregnancy and prenatal care; and more.
Throughout the years, I have worked to evolve my methods of coaching, motivating and teaching based upon the feedback, constructive criticism, and success stories of clients. WbMN has transformed from mere phone support to written health plans, coaching subscriptions and online classes; from a locals-only business to serving the world wide web with clients from several countries.
Recently, I have seen an increase in the number of clients coming to me after losing faith in the Western medical approach. They have often tried "everything else" so they come to me to get results. While it is progress to seek out the help of somebody new, what I really hope to convey here is that you must change the way you lived yesterday if you want different results than what yesterday brought you.
What I mean to say is... using my services will not include an office-visit appointment where you hear about what pills to take to stop feeling your symptoms instantly. There is no band-aid for 'dis' ease. When you come to WbMN, you will feel better - this is guaranteed - but we are going to work together to change your life using methods from Mother Nature. Navigating through Holistic Healthcare can be as challenging as watching a foreign movie - even with the subtitles on! Let me translate for you - translate both your symptoms, as well as the easiest journey to Restoring Wellness.
It is for these reasons that I am no longer offering office-style consultations with a 5-8 page written plan and resources. Instead, I am going to empower you and stick with you while we change your lifestyle together. The good news is that you likely won't need me afterwards because you will receive ALL YOU NEED to move forward with wellness. So instead of an hour and a half appointment with me, your coaching comes in an improved format! This new format includes weekly phone calls with me; group forum support from others going through the same program; website access with daily program material including handouts, videos and/or worksheets; Eating for Healing classes; and so much more. It's called Restoring Wellness, and it's available in January. We will still address your individual needs, but you'll also be altering your lifestyle at the same time. Without this change to your lifestyle, you will only need to come see me again in 4-6 weeks.
For example, if you needed homeopathic support for inflammation, I will still make that recommendation as I did before, but I will also teach you how and when to use homeopathics so you can easily reach for your next remedy yourself! It's all about empowerment with Restoring Wellness! Check out the info, flyer and website below and I hope to see you in the program!
The coaching you've been asking for is finally here!
Prior to creating this program, Coach Stephanie ran a survey asking hundreds of people what class subjects they'd like to see in the program, plus she surveyed what price people would pay for such powerful coaching. Not only has she included the top 5 Eating for Healing subjects, but the top 9, plus bonus mini-classes! And the best part is the price; receive this amazing coaching for as little as $5 per day!
A Program for Everyone
This 6-week, fully online, fully coached program restores your wellness from wherever you are currently - from the beginner to the savvy health nut. Whether you are:

This blog is on the many avenues that interest Coach Stephanie. Subjects are a vast array of hobbies, career, desires, coaching and lifestyle.
"I am here for support, guidance, education and as an example of what works for ME. What works for me may work for you or at least provide you with a starting point from which to explore. I am discovering what works for me at every moment. I don’t have it all figured out, but I do feel I have a teaching and healing nature with which I am here to share. In this blog, I offer you a view into my practice of being that which makes my experience - MINE."
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.
