Down Syndrome Threat To Pregnant Women By Western Doctors

Down syndrome is a condition caused by excess genetic material that can interfere with a child’s physical and mental development. It is thought to affect 1 in 800 babies born each year.

It is believed that Down’s syndrome is determined at the moment of conception. While it can’t be prevented, but it can be detected.

Causes and Risk Factors

At conception, a fetus acquires 23 chromosomes from the mother and 23 chromosomes from the father, for a total of 46 chromosomes. Down syndrome is marked by the acquisition of a 47th chromosome.

Types of Down’s syndrome are:

  • Trisomy 21-nine out of 10 babies with Down syndrome have this type of the condition. It is identified when a third copy of trisomy 21 is found in cells, instead of the normal two copies.
  • Mosaic Down Syndrome-this is a very rare type of the condition where only some cells have the extra copy of trisomy 21
  • Translocation Down syndrome-also an uncommon type of the condition, translocation down syndrome is indicated when part of chromosome 21 becomes attached (translocated) to another chromosome.

Risk factors include:

  • Women getting pregnant when older (35+ is generally the tipping point)
  • Family history or having another child with Down syndrome
  • Being a carrier of the genetic marker indicating a likelihood of Down syndrome.

Symptoms

Down syndrome is recognized by these symptoms:

  • Flattened facial features
  • Small head
  • Short neck
  • Slanting eyes
  • Abnormally shaped ears
  • Unusually short fingers
  • Excessive flexibility
  • Poor muscle tone
  • Single crease in the palm of the hand

Healing Options

It’s recommended to use a combination of therapies to assist children with Down syndrome. Early intervention helps the child cope with every day life, and eventual semi-independence.

Consider:

  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Speech therapy
  • Other therapies that help the child finds beneficial

Dietary Intervention

If you truly are concerned about Down syndrome, consume plenty of seaweeds such as:

  • Blue Green algae
  • Spirulina
  • Chlorella
  • Dules
  • Kelp
  • Irish Moss
  • Bladderwrack
  • Iceland Moss

Be sure to drink plenty of crystal water made with gemstones or crystals of Moss Agate, Lapis Lazuli, Herkimer Quartz, Clear Quartz, Lepidolite, Sugilite (Luvulite) and/or Zincite.

    Q: My sister and I both have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, except my sister has a very severe form of the disease. She has a very irregular menstrual cycle, has severe water retention-- especially with swelling in the face, feet and hands. She constantly has a dull stomachache and cannot lose weight. Doctors seem to only prescribe antibiotics for the recurrent infections (stomach) she has and I am sure they're killing off the good bacteria in her body.

    Q: My son was diagnosed with Stevens Johnson Syndrome. Jan. 2007, 10-day hospital stay,. Jan 2008, 8-day stay. This is terrible, more like biological experiment results put in place a long time ago. I’ve been thinking, and feeling, he needed to be detoxified. I am not knowledgeable on these toxic, viral, bacteria, fungus, whatever this thing is. I just don't understand it. The doctors don’t either. Where does it come from? When did it come? My Son is 16 years, trying to finish school. I will continue praying and seeking answers. I know I want to help him to be, and stay safe from the diseases, syndromes, pharmaceutical medications, misinformation, streets, and bad association. Thank You

    A:

    "Stevens-Johnson Syndrome" Stevens-Johnson Disease takes its name from two doctors, Albert M. Stevens, American pediatrician, b. 1884; and F.C. Johnson, an American physician, b. 1894. What is Stevens-Johnson syndrome? Stevens-Johnson syndrome is medically defined as: “A serious, sometimes fatal inflammatory disease affecting children and young adults. It is characterized by the acute onset of fever, bullae on the skin, and ulcers on the mucous membranes of the lips, eyes, mouth, nasal passage, and genitalia. Pneumonia, pain in the joints, and prostration are common. A complication may be perforation of the cornea. The syndrome may be an allergic reaction to certain drugs, or it may follow pregnancy, herpes virus I, or other infection. See also erythema multiforme.†– Mosby’s Medical Dictionary, 3rd ed., p. 1117 Okay, now to break things down in layman’s term for purposes of clear and simple understanding. So-called Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a medical term applied to a case of toxicity whereby the blood and lymph fluids are greatly polluted and toxic and whereby there is a large presence of MUCUS in the body (specifically the mucous membranes, the internal skin), which causes INFLAMMATION! When the skin is inflamed, mucus (thick, yellowish colored mucus) is usually the culprit. There are two kinds of mucus: bad mucus which is yellow-greenish in color, thick, stubborn and very sticky; and, good mucus, “a viscous, slippery secretion of the mucous membranes and glands, containing mucin, white blood cells, water, inorganic salts, and exfoliated cells.†– Mosby’s supra, p. 774 All skin conditions are blood disorders. The skin always manifests the condition of the blood. External skin problems also denote internal skin problems and what is the external skin? Answer: The mucous membranes! Mucous membrane is medically defined as: “any of four major kinds of thin sheets of tissue that cover or line various parts of the body. Mucous membranes line cavities or canals of the body that open to the outside, such as the lining of the mouth, the digestive tube, the respiratory passages, and the genitourinary tract. It consists of a surface of epithelial tissue covering a deeper later of connective tissue and protects the underlying structure, secretes mucus, and absorbs water, salts and other solutes. Compare serous membrane, skin, synovial membrane.†– Mosby’s supra, p. 774 Now, WHOOMP, There it is! Clearly, Stevens-Johnson syndrome is an adverse condition of the mucous membranes whereby the mucous membranes are inflamed (mucositis) due to an over-acidic condition (or acidosis). Now, in the definition of mucous membranes supra, it states the mucous membranes covers certain parts of the body and line cavities or canals of the body that open to the outside, i.e. mouth, digestive tube, respiratory passage, and genitourinary tract. Now in the definition of the syndrome itself supra, where does the syndrome manifest? Did not the definition (of Stevens-Johnson syndrome) say: “…. skin, … mucous membranes of the lips, eyes, mouth, nasal passage, and genitalia?†Yes it did! Are not these body parts, cavities or canals of the body that open to the outside of the body? Yes they are! Well, there you have it! Clearly Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a big medical word (though not that big and/or complex) describing something so basic as a mucus congestion leading to skin inflammation of certain cavities and canals of the body that lead to the outside, i.e. MOUTH (which includes the lips), EYES (which includes the cornea), NASAL PASSAGE (which links to the nose), and GENITALIA. Causes of Stevens-Johnson syndrome Because this syndrome (disease) involves mucus that tie into (or stems from) acidity, we know that the physical manifestation of this disease stems from poor and/or insalubrious diet, one high in acid-forming and mucopurulent so-called foods and beverages, i.e. meat (slaughtered animal flesh), dairy products (cow snot and pus); refined grains (i.e. white bread, white rice, white flour, pastries like cakes, cookies, donuts, etc.) and starches and a host of other so-called foods, as well as soda pop, milk, beer, wine, coffee, cocoa, etc. The greatest culprit of the physical manifestation of this disease is MUCUS from acid-forming foods (DEAD FOODS)! But because diet is involved here, this means the disease degenerative in nature and is 100% REVERSIBLE via change of diet and lifestyle as well as mindset/thought process and attitude. Healing from Stevens-Johnson syndrome naturally Like with every other major disease, DETOXIFYING the body is the first external step in healing from this disease. We actually begin the detox process when we begin to eat live, organic, sun-cooked or sun-baked foods, i.e. fruits and vegetables. Therefore, a change to a RAW FOODS and VEGAN-vegetarian diet would be ideal for healing. It would be wise to abstain from consuming all meat, dairy, refined grains, and refined starch products, and all acidic and effervescent beverages (i.e. soda pop, beer, etc.). Drink plenty of water (half gallon to gallon, depending on your body weight). Water helps to dissolve hardened mucus in the body. If you can find alkaline water, drink this water. The best waters are alkaline pH, negative charged, microclustered or structured, and ionic. The best way to get this kind of water is via ionic water machines from Asia. See www.ionizers.org/alkalife.html for more information. Soak daily in hot water (or warm water if you prefer), sea salt (1-2 boxes), and 1 cup 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide. Soak for at least 30 minutes before you start bathing. Rub your body down (from had to toe) after all baths/soaks and/or showers with Dherbs.Com OZ OIL. This is a miraculous healing oil and one of our best sellers! Our customers rave about this oil. There are plenty of herbs that can assist in the healing of Stevens-Johnson syndrome. Alterative herbs or blood cleansing and purifying herbs, expectorant herbs, and mucilaginous herbs are the ideal herbs here. Good blood-cleansing herbs include Oregon Grape, Pau D’ Arco, Echinacea Root, Manjistha, Goldenseal Root, Burdock Root, Dandelion Root, Ilex, and Yellow Dock Root to name a few. Good mucus-ridding or expectorants herbs include Mullein Leaf, Eucalyptus, Fenugreek Seed, Boneset, Elecampane, Coltsfoot, and Lobelia to name a few. Good mucilaginous herbs include Slippery Elm Bark, Irish Moss, Marshmallow, and Guar Gum to name a few. These herbs should be taken together in a compound or mixture (not every single one of them, in case you can’t obtain all of them, but most of them). Dherbs.Com products that can assist in healing from Stevens-Johnson syndrome include FULL BODY DETOX (and CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) for small children), 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE, and 10-DAY SUPREME BLOOD CLEANSE kit. Individual formulas include BLOOD AND LYMPHATIC FORMULA , LUNGS AND RESPIRATORY FORMULA, MUCUS BUSTER FORMULA, ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD, ACID BUSTER, KIDNEYS AND BLADDER, EYES FORMULA, ORAL ANTISEPTIC SPRAY, and OZ OIL (used externally but can also be taken internally).

Dherbs.Com is here to assist you in all of the above. We do not have the Answer(s) for you, because the Answer(s) that you require are within YOU and always have been.
