So You Think your doc knows it all?

Pause – set your Pulse…
Take a breath. Release the tension in your body. Place attention on your physical heart. Breathe slowly into the area for 60 seconds, focusing on feeling a sense of ease. Click here to learn why we suggest this.
I can’t tell you how discouraged I’ve been coming across numerous health professionals and doctors in my personal life who are completely unaware of what, at least to them, should be basic COVID-19 vaccine facts.
One example would be the fact that natural immunity provides a very robust and long lasting form of protection (perhaps for life) against COVID-19, even when compared to vaccine immunity. This is now firmly established in scientific literature.
Another would be the fact that COVID-19 vaccines don’t stop the transmission of the of virus. This was known from the very beginning, the shots were never tested or studied with regards to the ability to stop transmission in the first place, and throughout the pandemic some of the most highly vaccinated populations were experiencing the most outbreaks.

Despite this fact, many doctors told their patients to “do their part,” simply repeating the messaging we were subjected to by pharmaceutical companies, politicians, and countless advertisements on television and the radio.
There are several other concerns, like the fact that a doctor may be able to tell you that the vaccines’ contents remain in the shoulder muscle where they are injected, with some portion going to the draining lymph nodes where an immune response is initiated. But they wouldn’t be aware of the fact that mRNA vaccines may actually spread throughout the body instead of staying at the injection site for some patients, and that there are several concerns with this.
They wouldn’t know or wouldn’t tell you that thousands of renowned academics, like a senior editor of the British Medical Journal has been raising concerns about COVID-19 vaccine safety, or that a number of CDC & FDA scientists have been shocked by the lack of data that has been the basis for the approval of these vaccines and do not agree with what’s happened.
They may even be completely unaware of the fact that a record number (several millions) of serious vaccine injuries, or at least what people believe to be injuries stemming from the vaccine, have been reported to vaccine injury surveillance systems from around the world.
A proper investigation into these claims has not been conducted, and the CDC or FDA has still not investigated the fraud that was publicized by the British Medical Journal during some of the Pfizer clinical trials.
The question is, why? The answer is simple. Doctors are not any more immune to propaganda than you and me. It’s something that has happened throughout history, and continues to happen today. Sometimes it feels like not only are we not learning from our mistakes, but they are in fact getting worse.
In the times when nurses were spraying children with DDT and doctors were prescribing cigarettes to deal with stress, there was a plethora of science showing the potential harms of these substances. That science was buried from the public eye in the same way peer-reviewed science regarding the harms of COVID-19 vaccinations is being wiped off the internet by Big Tech companies. Many renowned doctors and scientists have been ridiculed and silenced throughout the pandemic as well. Here’s one of the latest examples.
We know from documents obtained by freedom of information requests by Judicial Watch Inc, that the US government planned to partner with Hollywood guilds to “work vaccination messaging into scripted and reality TV shows,” Disneyland Parks, major sports leagues, social media platforms, Catholic newspapers and newsletters, TV morning and daytime talk shows, Hispanic entertainment networks… the list goes on.
The “science” that many doctors are privy to usually deals with drug studies that are funded by the pharmaceutical company, authored by employees of the company and researchers who accepted payments from the company. And it doesn’t stop there.
Below is one of multiple posts we’ve shared on our Facebook Pages, both on Collective Evolution and The Pulse that have been removed and flagged, with no explanation at all.
This particular content removal was with regards to an article published by epidemiologist Tracy Beth Høeg, M.D., Ph.D and researcher Marty Makary, M.D., M.P.H. It included anonymous testimonies from CDC officials about the lack of science taking place at the CDC when it comes to COVID-19. with regards to Many scientists are frustrated and embarrassed by the lack of science to support recommendations being made by the CDC.
Along with medical associations, mainstream media and more are completely ignoring important data and science, the fact that much of it (legitimate information) is actually being removed from various platforms may also contribute to why some doctors are unaware. These companies are still censoring accurate and legitimate COVID-19 information.
The flip side, many doctors and scientists are aware
Although it’s been discouraging to see your average doctor condemn and stigmatize those who chose and choose not be inoculated against COVID-19, it’s been extremely encouraging and uplifting to see tens of thousands raise awareness about the potential risks and at least acknowledge why so many people remain unvaccinated,
“Political rhetoric has descended into moralizing, scapegoating, blaming and condescending language using pejorative terms and actively promoting stigma and discrimination as tools to increase vaccination…This has become socially acceptable among many vaccinated individuals and pro-vaccine groups as well as the public at large. The effect is to further polarize society – physically and psychologically – with limited discussion as to the reasons why people remain unvaccinated.“
Several researchers from various academic institutions. “The Unintended Consequences of COVID-19 Vaccine Policy: Why Mandates, Passports, and Segregated Lockdowns may cause more Harm than Good.”
There are a number of alliances of doctors and scientists that have been formed. Here in Canada, there is the Canadian COVID care alliance representing more than 600 academics, physicians and health care professionals.
The Great Barrington declaration had over 60,000 signatures from scientists and health care workers. These are a few of many examples, and it’s impressive given the fact that many of these professionals have been threatened by state legislature and medical associations to not speak out against government health authorities and their decisions regarding all things COVID.
California Governor Gavin Newsom, for example, recently signed Assembly Bill 2098 into law, which allows the state’s medical board to punish doctors for disseminating “misinformation” or “disinformation” regarding COVID-19.
The new proposal states that doctors should not contradict “scientific consensus” on COVID-19 when seeing their patients or they could be charged with “unprofessional conduct,” and possibly have their medical license suspended or revoked.
Important issues have become extremely politicized. People with strong political affiliations have a very hard time acknowledging legitimate information that questions their “side” or belief.
In my experience when having these conversations, information that may challenge what one believes simply goes in one ear and out of the other. We’ve lost our ability to connect and hear each other. (See our course on overcoming bias)
Sensible commentary and analysis is nowhere to be found within legacy media, political rhetoric and even in much of academia. Many academics, as mentioned above, have been ridiculed for pointing out facts about COVID-19.
It would be great if people could truly listen to and respect each other when discussing these matters. Society seems to be dominated by people who want to ‘win the debate’ or uphold the ‘my team is right’ mentality instead of actually being interested in what is actually true.
I don’t know what the solution is, but I do know that we cannot continue relying and asking corrupt systems, like government and federal health regulatory agencies, for example, for answers and advice.
“In my view what must continue to expand and grow is grass roots discussion around a clear understanding of the problems that exist in our society today. Problems that stop us from creating a thriving society. With that, an ongoing conversation around societal design, solutions and worldviews that will drive a new society forward are necessary. This is precisely what we will be continuing to do with Collective Evolution and upcoming projects.”
