Reforming Nocebo

Hilary Butler - Thursday, July 18, 2013

Part One: Words from Memory Lane.  

Part Two: Who controls the rhetoric? 

Part Three: The name of the game. 

Part Four: The get out of jail card. 

Part Five: Blaming Muggins.

And here is where the Ministry of Medical Truth's reformulating the meaning of the world nocebo, is the new scientific paradigm.  Their aim is to rescue an industry annually teetering on the edge of the next scandal.

On the one hand, they need definable effects, and credible proof which is difficult, because as Manfred Schedlowski says, "… we know the nocebo effect can be really really large… this hinders development of new drugs.” And “the nocebo effect may also have a really worrisome effect on vaccine use". Oh yes, you can create fear, to make people use vaccines, but when parents say that vaccines cause reactions, you can’t study that, because It's all "nocebo" caused by parents reading the facts from the vaccine datasheets.  And as Dr Bernadine Healy stated:  

“Healy said: "There is a completely expressed concern that they don't want to pursue a hypothesis because that hypothesis could be damaging to the public health community at large by scaring people. "First of all," Healy said, "I think the public's smarter than that. The public values vaccines. But more importantly, I don't think you should ever turn your back on any scientific hypothesis because you're afraid of what it might show."

Yet that’s exactly what they have done. The medical system has turned their backs on FACTS  because they are afraid of the truth that those facts might confirm that it's not nocebo at all, but that being biologicals, meaning that they do affect the biology of the person, vaccines do indeed have the potential to wreck lives.  THEREFORE they invoke the placatory placebo principles and make sure that all research only asks questions and uses methods designed to dismiss what parents see, return to business as normal, and not to get to the bottom of any of the issues.

 "Worried Sick"  tells us that nocebo increases the “incidence of asthma and allergies… we know an allergic reaction can be conditioned.”

I couldn’t help laughing at the last quote, because for a very long time, I have believed that vaccines in babies result in a fundamental changing of the immune system, resulting, amongst other things, in an increase in allergy and asthma:

1. Vaccines and neonatal immune development   23-May-2011

2. How a baby fights infection and develops the immune system  24-May-2011

3. Can vaccines become cranial and immunological cluster bombs?   25-May-2011

Please note in the three blogs above, that EVERYTHING I say comes from medical articles for which links are provided.  Ask yourself this.  Did all the immunologists who wrote the things I discussed suffer from a nocebo delusion that what they saw was real?   Yes, an allergic reaction can be conditioned: … by deviant immune responses to allergens and vaccines, but that isn’t what this article is meaning. It's all in your imaginations, mammas!!!

And here’s the interesting thing. Just about every second child you meet these days, appears to have some dairy sensitivity or a gluten intolerance – the list is legion.

The article infers that these allergies and asthma are a new form of nocebo, and that, the children are the victims of a psychologically deranged parental child abuse.

Why parents would want to make their lives into that sort of hell beats me, but it seems that this is where the medical profession is heading with this argument. Everything will soon be your fault!

I wonder what would happen in the unfortunate scenario that I landed up in hospital from a car crash?  Here's the imaginary discussion:

Dr: "I see your medic alert says you're allergic to all antibiotics. Can you describe the symptoms please?"

Me: Well, my neck and face swell up like a balloon, and I start choking and can't breathe. And usually don't remember much after that."

Dr: "Well, never mind. We know that's all caused by nocebo effects, and was all in your mind. That won't happen again now that you know your hypochondria caused it, so we'll just go ahead and use what we like...."

You know why that wouldn't happen. Because the medical system would be sued to Mars and back again.

Don't you think it's bizarre, that you can legitimately be allergic to drugs, anaesthetics and a whole raft of things, but suddenly they are framing allergies and asthma as being a psychosocially induced disease?

And you can see WHY this shift in language...., because the sheer numbers of drugs and vaccine reactions being brought up by parents and people to their doctors is staggering. Reactions of any sort financially threaten an industry which wants to look benevolent and convince us all that they are not capable of doing any harm at all.

THEREFORE the focus must come away from drugs and onto people….. No doubt, the end aim of that, will be the new vaccine, Pluracydafex which will abolish patient nocebo forever!!! (see Pages 82, 118, 132-133, and 147 in our 2008 book, "From One Prick to Another". PDF can be got here.)

They want to research nocebo to nail the issues down and come up with their version of scientific data....., but they have a huge problem. Paul Enck a psychologist at the University of Tubingen Germany, puts it in a nutshell when he says that "he can’t study nocebo ‘ “..unless I tell the subjects that I’m deceiving them” a requirement that obviously defeats the purpose of the deception."

But wait. They have come up with a nifty solution……

Just Trust Us....

Part Two: Who controls the rhetoric? 

Part Three: The name of the game. 

Part Four: The get out of jail card. 

Part Five: Blaming Muggins.

Part Six: Reforming Nocebo.

The solution for the medical system? It’s pretty simple really. If you aren't allowed to "deceive" people, to research what happens when they are deceived, only one possible action remains.  Only ever tell patients the GOOD THINGS a drug or vaccine can do. Say, "Just trust us.  WE know what we are doing...."

Part One: Words from Memory Lane.  

Part Two: Who controls the rhetoric? 

Part Three: The name of the game. 

Part Four: The get out of jail card. 

As I look at young mothers today, I see a generation who, like never before, have been so saturated with medical nocebo in school, ....  that fear and stress is often etched on their faces at the mention of the word “doctor”. They have been artfully brainwashed. You just have to read some of the things they say on facebook and twitter to realise that when it comes to fact, if you look in the right ear, you might see out the left. They are so frightened, that as this video so clearly shows, that FEAR switches off their critical faculties, and the word “expert” holds them in a blinded thrall.  Continue Reading


The name of the game.

Hilary Butler - Sunday, July 14, 2013

Part One: Words from Memory Lane. 

Part Two: Who controls the rhetoric?
 

The Scientist’s article “Worried Sick” confirms that nocebo and placebo are a primary drivers in medical practice, by their statement: “In places like primary care, people are swimming in placebo and nocebo effects.”

Placebo is defined as: “a usually pharmacologically inert preparation prescribed more for the mental relief of the patient than for its actual effect on a disorder”

A placebo could also be defined as “There there Dearie, you’ll be fine. This is simple to fix….” Continue Reading


Words from memory lane.

Hilary Butler - Tuesday, July 09, 2013



It's 32 years ago, since I started out researching medical history, obstetrics, drugs, vaccines and pretty much everything pertaining to keeping the family's health intact... in spite of the medical profession.

Back in 1984, when I started helping parents, whose children reacted seriously after vaccines, these are the words they said, every time, like a mindless monotone recording.

"But they never TOLD me this could happen!!! No-one gave me any information at all! I had no idea (tears) and if I had known,  I wouldn't have let them give that vaccine". Continue Reading


Are non vaccinators the "new Jews"?

Hilary Butler - Friday, May 17, 2013

The year 1997 in Australia is etched in my mind, because 17 years ago, the then Minister of Health, Dr Michael Wooldridge, started a fraudulent media campaign stating that Australia's childhood vaccination rates were 53%.  This figure was not only splattered over the Australian Media... it made it into the New Zealand Herald. It didn't matter to him, or the media, that the data he provided was a total lie.  It never occurred to him that he'd even got any facts wrong, like men becoming sterile after MEASLES..... The medical profession knew his vaccination rate data was lies, and stayed silent, sitting back poker-faced with folded arms, quietly cheering him on in one of the most blatant, criminally erroneous publicity campaigns that had ever taken place.   Until now.... Continue Reading


Battling Immunisation Ignorance

Hilary Butler - Thursday, December 01, 2011

(For anyone reading this in Australia, I did a similar blog in 2008, on Australian media lies on pertussis as well, which you can read here. It also contains full text medical articles and proof that what their media reports is blatantly fictitious propaganda, created by medical people whose only aim is to intentionally deceive the reader by NOT providing the facts. After all, if they provided you with the facts, they wouldn't be able to bully you into "comformity and compliance" would they?)

Dear Nikki,

While what follows may appear to be anger at you, it is not. It’s anger at the medical people who came to you with dogma … not with facts, and have deliberately mislead you. I will prove that to you using their own documents.

Getting to the Point.

Hilary Butler - Monday, July 04, 2011

Perhaps this Australian documentary should have been labelled...

Totally missing the point. Or .. A bunch of Lies.  Take your pick.

The Australian 60 Minutes journalist who had the responsibility for doing the research for this programme, is professionally incompetent.

You will not understand this blog unless you take the time to download all the full text medical articles, tables, graphs etc in this blog, and study for yourself what a 60 minutes journalist refused to look at.  Or .... chose not to.

The increase in pertussis has nothing to do with the unvaccinated at all.  It's all happening because doctors in Australia have finally woken up to the fact that pertussis can happen in vaccinated people and are testing for it.

The reason all the old studies over-estimated pertussis vaccine efficacy was, as Cherry said in a 1998 medical article, that doctors believe that vaccinated people never got pertussis, so they never diagnosed it.  SIMPLE.  Pertussis after a vaccine was coincidence and something else.   According to Dempsey 2009, that situation still exists in USA today. 

As to the Australian whole cell whooping cough vaccine, it was implemented solely on the basis of trust, because as CDI admitted in 1994, there were NEVER any efficacy tests done on it, and there were no "serological correlates" or tests to prove immunity, for them to use as a basis of discussion anyway. 

Wonder what the Australian public would have said back then, if some doc had said, "We don't know if this works, because we don't know how to test for immunity to pertussis, but we assume this bright idea is a good one."

The Australian CDI went one further in 1997, and admitted that they ALSO... didn't collect data on the vaccination status of whooping cough cases either.  Continue Reading


Polio and lemmings

Hilary Butler - Sunday, May 29, 2011

There are none so blind as those who won't look for their own information. There is none so blind as a medical profession that believes "polio" is about to be wiped from the face of the earth.  "We'll get there any day soon you know, if we JUST persist throwing vaccines around the world hand over fist. We NEVER see polio any more, do we?"  After all, as Bill Gates intoned to a rapturous World Health Organisation on 17th May, 2011, we're just about there! ...   Soon, we can extol the extermination of that dreaded plague, POLIO.  There is only one problem, and that is that Bill Gates is blind, and WHO is wilfully blind.  Most of society just doesn't realise there's an issue, because... well... they believe! Polio has not been eradicated at all. And will not be eradicated. Polio has been renamed. And here is the proof from WHO's own website: Continue Reading


A few voices are waking up to the fact that...

Hilary Butler - Saturday, May 28, 2011

.... that aluminium in vaccines just might not be all it's cracked up to be. Will your child be next?  What will it take for parents to start to realise that the line they are being sold - that vaccines are perfectly safe, and wonderful...is basically "lies by omission"? The medical system can't say they don't know.  All the evidence has been there for decades.  Parents need to understand the concept of "willful ignorance", because that's the fundamental core of the Vaccine Industry, and those who are in their pay - even if they feebly protest that they are not - even if they say that all they care about is healthy children.  This is the problem... willful... hidebound ... head in the: Continue Reading
