Make informed choices!

November 2011

dr heidi
One of the things we can be most thankful for is our choice to make informed decisions about the health care we choose for ourselves and our families.  That is why I am urging all parents to do some research before giving your daughter the Gardasil Vaccine. 

The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) is demanding an investigation by the Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) and the U.S. Congress into the fast-tracked licensure and government recommendation that all young girls and women receive the Gardasil vaccine.  This vaccine is recommended as protection against HPV virus (venereal warts) which can lead to cervical cancer but according to the NVIC, the risks outweigh the 'yet to be proven' benefits.  Routine pap-smears for our young girls and women are still the prevention of choice for this health concern.

Also to note, it has just been released that CA Governor Jerry Brown signed bill 'AB499' allowing 12-year-old children the ability to consent to being injected with Gardasil vaccines without their parents' knowledge!  It has been reported that young girls receiving this 'recommended' vaccine have experienced fainting, seizures, stroke, severe headaches, partial loss of vision and worsening symptoms after repeated vaccination.  And there have been 29 Gardasil death reports to the VAERS and clinical studies show the efficacy and safety of the vaccine have proven to be poor, to say the least.  Somehow our Governor and Policy Makers believe a 12-year-old girl can consent to her Pediatrician giving her an 'experimental' vaccine that could be devastating to her health.  This is where we need to be the watchdogs for our families health, by staying informed with every single vaccine decision as it is clearly not our governments or MD/pharmaceutical companies highest concern.

Please take the time become informed.  Don't trust any vaccine recommendations without asking some questions and doing your own research.  We all have a right to say "NO" to any vaccine if we feel it to be unnecessary or unsafe. 

As a Doctor who has researched this topic extensively, and as a Parent,  I am here to help guide you with all of your health care including making vaccine decisions.

Until our next adjustment.... 


Yours in health,

"The Greater Good"  Documentary Film
halloween party

The Greater Good looks behind the fear, hype and politics that have polarized the vaccine debate in America today. The film re-frames the emotionally charged issue and offers, for the first time, the opportunity for a rational and scientific discussion on how to create a safer and more effective vaccine program.

Nutrition News
Fall's Vegetable Bounty! 
healthy food heart

Harvest season brings an  abundance of fresh vegetables.  As grilling vegetables is to summer, so roasting vegetables is to fall and winter as the veggies available in fall are practically designed to be roasted.

Roasting vegetables couldn't be more easy and the process brings out the natural sweetness in vegetables and intensifies their natural flavors which will make them appealing to kids too! Roast your favorite fall vegetables like carrots, onions, potatoes, sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, turnips, winter squash, eggplant and more.

Follow these easy instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a pan with foil, and coat the foil with canola or olive oil cooking spray. Cut your vegetables into small chunks or hearty bite-sized pieces.
  2. Add vegetables in a single layer to the foil-lined pan and spray the top with cooking spray or drizzle with a bit of canola or olive oil (use no more than a teaspoon of oil for every cup of vegetables). If you use oil, toss the veggies about on the pan to coat as much of them with oil as possible.
  3. Sprinkle on any desired seasonings, such as rosemary or basil, parsley, marjoram, sea salt and/or pepper.  
  4. Bake for 20 minutes, turn them over gently with a spatula, then cook until they're tender and nicely browned around some of the edges (about 20-25 minutes more).
  5. Serve warm and enjoy!

Other Vaccines:
in Dr. Heidi's opinion 


There are a number of vaccines that Dr. Heidi feels may not be necessary for our kids.  Here is a list and why she advocates each of us to get informed:


Gardasil Vaccine - too many side effects, not enough research.


Chicken Pox vaccine - the actual virus is less risky than the vaccine.


Flu vaccine - unless immune-compromised, a healthy child can fight the flu to build lifelong immunity.  The flu vaccine uses last seasons' flu antigen and is not necessarily protective against this years flu.


MMR vaccine - most documented reactions, linked to autism.  If child has side effects to first dose, research alternatives to this vaccine ie. single dose vaccine without thimerisol.


Hep B vaccine at birth - this is an adult disease transmitted through blood and body fluids.  Most children will not be at risk.

Patient Success Story!

by Bella S.    


"When I woke up a few days ago, I couldn't move my neck. My head felt like 200 pounds on my shoulders and I was in agonizing pain. I knew Dr. Heidi from last year and decided to just walk in her office without an appointment. Although she had many patients, she still fit me in. Dr.Heidi is young, yet experienced. She worked miracles that day. She's not only a chiropractor, she is a real healer. When I left her office, I felt like I was a different person.
Afterwards,  she suggested a massage in addition to the chiropractor appointment. I made an appointment right away and saw Victorya the next day. Victorya was an amazing massage therapist, as well as a healer. I have had a lot of massage therapy in my life, but her's was the best I've ever had. I felt so much better afterwards that I can't wait to go back next week. My back pain, my headaches and my neck pain are all gone thanks  to Victorya and mostly Dr.Heidi."
