Is the Gardasil Vaccine for HPV Really Necessary?
In 2006, vaccine manufacturers unveiled a vaccine for HPV, human papillomavirus, called Gardasil. This vaccine was created and marketed to the masses in to prevent a disease that kills a few thousand people per year in America. But are the benefits of Gardasil worth the risks?
From my research, here are the Top 10 Red Flags associated with Gardasil, the HPV vaccine –
Top 10 Red Flags with Gardasil
Is the HPV Vaccine Safe?
Many severe reactions to Gardasil have taken place, including death and permanent disability. According to Russell Blaylock, MD, as of September 2011, there have been 18,700 reported adverse reactions to Gardasil, 1,400 of which were serious adverse reactions including 68 deaths. Only an estimated 2% of adverse reactions are reported, so in reality there may be up to 168,000 adverse reactions, 13,000 serious, as many as 600 deaths due to Gardasil! (1)
40 hours after her third dose of Gardasil, 17-year-old Jessica Ericzon of Alexandria Bay, NY was found dead on the bathroom floor by her mother. Jessica had experienced pain and dizziness after her second Gardasil shot, but her mother didn’t link the symptoms to the shot at the time and went ahead and had her daughter receive the fatal third injection. In Frederick, MD, Mary Davison’s 20-year-old daughter Mary Katherine felt sick and dizzy after her second Gardasil dose. And MRI revealed that the girl had suffered a major stroke. It was almost two months before she could walk again (2).
The FDA has not recalled the vaccine, but has continued to regard it as safe. By contrast, 52 deaths were attributed to acceleration issues in Toyotas, which triggered a huge media campaign and a $2 billion recall (3).
There are reports of miscarriage in conjunction with the vaccine. In August 2008, the CDC required that all female immigrants between the ages of 11 and 26 be injected with at least one dose of Gardasil if they planned on entering the United States. 28 of these immigrant women experienced miscarriages within 30 days of receiving the Gardasil injection (4).
All lots of the vaccine have been discovered to be contaminated. Genetically-engineered recombinant DNA of the HPV virus was found in all the batches of the HPV vaccine even when the vaccine insert claimed that there was no DNA material in the vaccine. The full effects of introducing foreign (especially genetically-engineered DNA) into the body are unknown. But cancer, autoimmune illness, and death are some possible effects (5).
The HPV vaccine was “fast-tracked” through the testing process, something that the FDA specifies is appropriate only for serious disease and for an unmet medical need even though 95% of HPV cases in America resolve themselves with proper gynecological care (6).
Other countries are throwing Gardasil out the window as it causes damage to their people. In 2009, Spain threw out over 76,000 doses of Gardasil after 2 girls went into convulsions immediately after the vaccine was administered (7). When this happens here in America, however, it’s business as usual.
Is the HPV Vaccine Effective?
The HPV vaccine only covers 4 of many strains of HPV (8). These are the ones that most commonly lead to cervical cancer, but some researchers are concerned that other HPV strains could take their place in causing the cancer, making the vaccine completely useless. There is a precedence with this type of thing happening with pneumonia and other diseases (9)
Not only may Gardasil not actually prevent cervical cancer, but it has been documented that it can actually cause HPV infection. As of March 2011, the Vaccine Adverse Reaction System (VAERS) has reported 376 abnormal pap smears, 108 reports of anogenital warts, 224 reports of HPV infections, and 41 reports of cervical cancer — all after HPV vaccination (11).
Ignoring the abundant evidence that Gardasil is a risky vaccine designed to prevent a disease that usually resolves on its own, government officials have overstepped their bounds in promoting Gardasil. In 2007, Texas governor Rick Perry signed an executive order mandating that all 10-year-old girls in TX get the HPV vaccine. This angered many Texas residents, and Perry was forced to rescind the executive order after a time. (12)
Some schools in parts of the nation are overstepping their bounds in promoting Gardasil to schoolchildren. Earlier this year a school district in Chapel Hill, NC ran an incentive contest for boys and girls to be entered into a drawing to win a free ipod or laptop computer for getting the Gardasil vaccine (13). Currently there is a a bill in California passed by state legislature and on the desk of the governor that would allow the administration of Gardasil to children as young as 12 without their parents’ knowledge while they are at school (14).
Natural Solutions for HPV
If Gardasil was the only thing that could save women and men from HPV infection and certain types of cancer, then you could see that for some people the possible benefit might outweigh the significant risks. But this couldn’t be further from the truth.
Over 90% of cases of HPV infection resolve on their own without any treatment at all, and of that 10% only a small percentage ever go on to develop cervical cancer. And far from being a deadly scourge, cervical cancer is among one of the easiest forms of cancer to treat. Most women can beat cervical cancer with good hygiene, a healthy diet, and supplementation with Vitamin B-12 and folic acid along with not smoking.
Thousands of people have found that therapeutic-grade essential oils can also play a powerful role in helping the body to rid itself of HPV infection, genital warts, and even cervical cancer. In addition to the recommendations above and consulting with a qualified health practitioner, here’s what has worked for countless people –
For HPV infection or a pap smear coming back positive for abnormal cell, dilute 10 drops of oregano, basil, lavender, or Thieves oil in 2 Tbsp. of cold-pressed olive oil and apply it to a natural, unbleached cotton tampon. Retain vaginally nightly for a week or more until the situation resolves.
For cervical cancer, use thyme, basil, or sandalwood oils in capsules 2-4x/day and retain on a natural tampon 3x/week. In addition, cervical cancer often will not develop when mineral progesterone levels are adequate. Our Progessence Plus serum and Mineral Essence can help.
Only truly therapeutic-grade essential oils ought to be used internally. Don’t use any essential oil that is labeled “for external use only” or “for aromatic use only”.
“I learned that a friend of mine was diagnosed with genital warts and was concerned about the advise she received from the doctor. She was informed that she could get them froze, cut off, or they had an ointment that may work but would take possibly two months before she could get rid of them and be free to have sex again. I read up on the oils and found that oregano worked to get rid of the warts. She used it once in the morning and once at night for ten days and they were gone. She now uses a douche with tea tree oil to assist the virus in remaining dormant so she will not be contagious. I thought this would be helpful for others who receive the word that this problem is ‘forever’ and may feel helpless about their situation.”

“Anyone who has had the HPV virus or worked in a STD clinic knows the treatment for genital warts is no fun. The following is a protocol that has worked for many people. Please make sure you have a proper diagnosis before attempting this.
Oregano is a very hot oil, so please dilute, have v-6 mixing oil handy in case the burning sensation is too much to handle. Dilute the end of a q-tip with v-6 or almond oil, then add 1 drop of oregeno on the same end.
Gently paint one wart and wait a few minutes. The heat will gradually set in. You may want to paint one wart at a time, until you feel sure you’re not doing too much too fast. Start low, go slow. It works! “

“Several years ago I had a pap smear that came back positive for abnormal cells. I decided to put my essential oils to the test. I used basil oil diluted in olive oil retained on natural, unbleached tampons for 7 nights in a row. I had another pap smear a few weeks later and there was no sign of abnormal cells!”
- Theresa T., FL
“After trying Rx creams specified to remove [genital] warts for two months, I finally consulted the EODR [Essential Oil Desk Reference]. After 3 weeks of applying oregano neat daily, the wart disappeared; thank God for essential oils.”
