In addition, Chloe, who is now 18-years-old, suffers from Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), one of many conditions affecting her health:
Everyday is a battle against the never-ending symptoms against pain, random and exhausting fits, mast cell reactions, the agony when meds, feed and water is pushed down my tube. Then there’s the war with the invisible aspects people don’t see: nausea, migraines, vision problems, light and noise sensitivity, the multiple injection wounds from injecting daily to reduce blood clots.
You don’t see the paralyzed stomach or delayed motility of my GI tract, the raw inflammation and ulceration in my colon, the over active nerve endings, blocked signals in my brain and spinal cord, and of course the intense chronic pain that you don’t always see in public because of the ‘stay brave and cry later face.
Gradually, paralysis began to overtake her body, leaving both of her legs paralyzed for the past 2 years.
Ironically, Chloe says it was the pursuit of alternative holistic health therapies, like Reiki, that allowed her to recently regain some mobility in one of her feet.
Gardasil, one of the more popular vaccines promoted to parents for their children, has consistently used manipulative marketing techniques to intimidate consumers.
One ad uses an actor playing the role of a concerned mother who speaks to an audience and urges them to get their children vaccinated immediately to avoid acquiring HPV.
The menacing marketing became so blatant that one of Merck’s lead researchers, Dr. Diane Harper, blew the whistle on Gardasil.
“The benefit to public health is nothing, there is no reduction in cervical cancers, they are just postponed,” said Harper in an interview with CBS News.
The risks of serious adverse events including death reported after Gardasil use…were 3.4/100,000 doses distributed. The rate of serious adverse events on par with the death rate of cervical cancer.
Gardasil has been associated with at least as many serious adverse events as there are deaths from cervical cancer developing each year. Indeed, the risks of vaccination are under-reported.
For Chloe, she continues to find hope in alternative therapies, as well as the support of her many Facebook followers, whom she regularly updates here.
