The Vitamin K Shot Alternative (What Dr. Mercola Didn’t Tell You)

VERY, VERY IMPORTANT!!

Do NOT get the Vitamin K Shot until READING PACKAGE INSERT!!!!

Make sure shot does NOT contain ‘Polysorbate 80’ OR ‘Aluminum’.

UpDate:
The Rise Of Caesarian Births And Big Pharma Fear Porn.

I would like to thank a midwife who came to my blog and blew a gasket over this article that I posted on the Vitamin K shot.  You can read her comment below and my reply to it.

I actually predicted that big pharma and it’s multi-billion dollar PR machine would begin to target their ‘no shot left behind‘ agenda on mothers who choose caesarian births.  You see,  one does NOT have to be a medical expert on the vitamin K shot to see a ‘wild west medicine show’ when they see one put on by big pharma a hundred miles away.  All one has to do is exercise a little discernment, and know just a little ‘history‘  about the Vitamin K shot itself.

Before getting swept away in the latest ‘fear porn’ that your new born will “spontaneously hemorrhage” due to not having a vitamin K shot and that new borns of caesarian births are at the “highest Risk” of spontaneous hemorrhaging, you need to take a deep breath and remember that the vitamin K shot was ‘never’  created to prevent new borns from ‘spontaneous hemorrhaging’ what-so-ever.  The vitamin K shot was actually ‘originally marketed’ to the  health care ‘industry’  to prevent ‘uncontrollable hemorrhaging’ DUE TO VAGINAL BIRTHING.  Thus, making the vitamin K shot for new borns of a caesarian birth, a rather moot point from the medical industry’s own ‘original’ sales brochures, that is.

I was much more concerned about pumping ‘Polysorbate 80’  (a nasty, nasty, chemical that would NEVER be put in a vaccine / shot if there were legal liability for vaccines) than my new borns spontaneously hemorrhaging for no other reason than not having yet another shot injected into them.

Phytonadione (phytonadione) Injection, Emulsion
Aqueous Colloidal Solution of Vitamin K1

WHAT YOUR DOCTOR PROBABLY WILL NOT TELL YOU…
WARNING — INTRAVENOUS USE
Severe reactions, including fatalities, have occurred during and immediately after the parenteral administration of Phytonadione. Typically these severe reactions have resembled hypersensitivity or anaphylaxis, including shock and cardiac and/or respiratory arrest. Some patients have exhibited these severe reactions on receiving Phytonadione for the first time. The majority of these reported events occurred following intravenous administration, even when precautions have been taken to dilute the Phytonadione and to avoid rapid infusion. Therefore, the INTRAVENOUS route should be restricted to those situations where another route is not feasible and the increased risk involved is considered justified.

** It was brought to my attention that the ‘original (2010) article’ (posted above) has been altered.  I can assure you that I posted the above as it ‘originally’ appeared in 2010.  Any editing of the above article is strictly on the part of the NIH.

As the editor I use the word ‘rare’ or ‘rarely’ very cautiously below. Don’t let that word lull you to sleep.

The reasoning to give a new born Vitamin K is the CHANCE the new born will develop internal hemorrhaging (from i.e passing through the birth canal / getting ‘banged up’ by forceps…) because their system MAY not clot blood. Very rarely does that actually happen. When it does and, if the new born is lucky that no hemorrhaging has occurred in the brain or lungs, vital organs, vitamin K is given. It’s given most of the time in ‘multiple injection’s and, in these cases, the blood starts clotting as it should and the hemorrhaging stops.

What the ‘trained medical professional’ doesn’t tell you is that equally as rare as a new born hemorrhaging is a new born developing a severe allergic reaction to the shot. It also happens, rarely. What most of them won’t tell you and, most probably don’t even know, is that there are ‘preservative free’ vitamin K shots. To minimize any chance for a ‘reaction’, I WOULD choose the shot with NO preservatives, if it were me choosing the shot. However, deadly reactions can STILL occur with the preservative free V.K. shot.

If I had to do it all over I would have held off on the shot until signs of internal hemorrhaging became apparent. Holding off and giving the V.K. shot has proven to be successful in cases where interenal hemorrhaging occurred.

The inherent problem with ALL emulsion injections is that it is ALWAYS risky injecting an oil into the blood stream. As with all the problems associated with squalene adjuvants in vaccines. Thus, if you read the actual warning from the shot insert that I posted above it clearly tells you in black and white that the ‘recommended’ way to use this substance is to INGEST it.
——————————————————————————

To Dr. Mercola’s credit he did a wonderful informative video segment on Vitamin K drops as A SAFE AND EFFECTIVE alternative to the shot. It dovetailed perfectly with my own research on the subject that, as far as the global medical community is concerned the drops are perfectly safe and effective for new born infants to receive and that there is a standard protocol for administering it. One to two drops for the first 24 hours, one to two drops the first seven days from birth, and finally one to two drops 28 days from birth. The end, no big deal.

What Dr. Mercola and all the other medical professionals discussing it did NOT say is that vitamin K drops are NOT something you can simply swing by your local vitamin store and pick up. As a matter of fact, here in America, it’s a down right ordeal to get it period for your new born. As I also found out it’s a great bell weather to find out if your so-called ‘holistic’ pediatrician practice is a holistic practice by name only like ours WAS. In trying to get something as simple as vitamin K drops it exposed our FORMER pediatrician’s practice as a flat out pack of liars. They claimed they would not authorize the prescription for it because “THERE IS NO KNOWN DOSAGE TO GIVE NEW BORNS” That was lie #1. Lie #2 was they claimed Walgreens DID NOT MAKE THE DROPS at their ‘compound’ pharmacy. I talked with Walgreens and they most assured me that they in fact did make the drops when prescribed. They even double checked the dosage and confirmed that.

VITAMIN K Continued
I have spoken with a well meaning doctor since my posting and he said the drops are just as effective. No doubt. He recommended the shot however, for natural births. His reasoning was, if some kind of internal hemorrhage (mainly in the head) from passing through the birth canal was to occur, the ‘induction time’ (for the desired clotting effect) for the vitamin K shot takes is almost immediate where the drops take 1 month to equal the dosage needed to induce the desired clotting effect. This is a logical point, considering the international protocol on the dose given over 28 days.

In a caesarian birth, I wouldn’t think there would even be a need for a vitamin K shot what-so-ever. Unless the infant was dropped on the floor or something stupid like that. In the case of caesarian birth Vitamin K drops should be fine over the one month induction period. My own conclusion. Some may argue that a contracting uterus in labor MAY cause an infant to hemorrhage internally. I would wager a bet that the stats of infants hemorrhaging as the result from a contracting uterus (Only) would be so astronomical, it would be much easier winning the power ball two times in a row.

However, the good doctor did say he had no clue as to what preservatives are used in the shot and that was certainly a good question. He later got back to me and told me one manufacture of VK did NOT have preservatives in the vile while the other did. He only knew of the two manufactures.

So, you may want to get the VK shot for a natural birth and drops for caesarian births. If getting the VK shot MAKE SURE YOU GET THE VK SHOT WITH NO PRESERVATIVES

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a
    pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m
    not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice
    would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks

    • I just kept it simple and let the info / facts I was putting out be the star.

  2. Great post.
    I have been researching this topic prior to the birth of my second baby. My firstborn was submitted to all the disgusting neonatal protocols and it really pissed me off. I am being more careful with my second.
    My questions are:
    What is the name of the preservative free injection and where can I find it?
    Can I buy it online?

    Thanks in advance for the information.

    • It varies per manufacture. You’ll have to refer to the insert for the particular shot you’re going to inject into your infant.

  4. I went to the NIH page about the vitamin k shot, which you linked to and supposedly quoted at the top of the page. I am wondering why you replaced the words “subcutaneous route” in the last sentence with “another route”? The NIH is clearly warning about the dangers when the shot is given intravenously or intramuscularly, but they do not claim this danger when given subcutaneously (under the skin). This is an important distinction and one that conveys a completely different message than the one you chAnged it to. If you are simply trying to inform people, why would you make a change like that? Seems a bit like intentional misleading? I felt duped and was glad I did further research of my own.

    • I did NOT ‘change’ anything.

      Did it ever occur to you that the NIH changed their ‘original’ publication? It happens all the time.

  5. I don’t know where to begin… but lets start here. ” In a caesarian birth, I wouldn’t think there would even be a need for a vitamin K shot what-so-ever. Unless the infant was dropped on the floor or something stupid like that. In the case of caesarian birth Vitamin K drops should be fine over the one month induction period. My own conclusion.

I would wager a bet that the stats of infants hemorrhaging as the result from a contracting uterus (Only) would be so astronomical, it would be much easier winning the power ball two times in a row.”

    This is about as uninformed and “just don’t care to educate myself further” of a statement as I have recently read. It shows your total lack of understanding on the topic. Therefor please do not give advise on this topic. I would recommend that you read a few articles, actually you don’t even need to strain your mental faculties that much. Just Google ” CAUSES OF VKDB IN NEWBORNS” It will clue you in on how method of birth i.e; Gentle C-Sec or vaginal birth or any other scenario, does not mean that babies will not develop this condition. Once you have a grasp of this concept, please write an up-date on your blog so that unsuspecting mom’s will have sound information. Good place to begin would be ” Evidence Based Birth” which provides information that is unbiased and based on actual studies.

    • First, let me state for the record that the ‘only’ advice this blog gives is that people consider an alternate point of view before blindly ‘trusting’ marketing shills such as yourself who lead them to multi-billion dollar studies from entities ‘claiming’ to be “unbiased”. People have had enough of that already. That, and.. ‘READ THE INGREDIENT LIST!’

      The question that immediately popped into my head when I saw that my comment on ‘caesarian births’ had so interested you, was that big pharma must be having a hard sell of the vitamin K shot to an ever growing population of new mothers, getting C sections.

      You see, when any mother with two braincells to rub together would ask their health care provider the completely ‘logical and ‘reasonable’ question… “why does my new born have to have this shot as soon as it takes it’s first breath” The health care provider (historically) would respond… “to prevent hemorrhaging due to the new born’s inability to clot such hemorrhaging” The next ‘logical’ question to the health care provider any mother with two braincells to rub together would be… “What would cause any hemorrhaging to a new born?” Historically the healthcare provider would respond (and this answer was always used by the healthcare provider as the ‘sales pitch’ for the shot) that “vaginal births could cause the newborn to have internal bleeding.”

      However, in this day and age where more and more new mothers are ‘opting’ for caesarian births, the vaginal birth hemorrhaging ‘sales pitch’ won’t work.

      Let’s be honest here Sandra. In the entire history of mankind there have ‘never’ been reported ‘epidemics’ of newborns, let alone infants, spontaneously hemorrhaging uncontrollably. So, when such an event does happen, even with vaginal births, it’s fairly rare to begin with, and such a medical ‘complication would be ‘far beyond’ the scope of simply lacking a vitamin K shot..

      Now, there have historically been bigger problems for mother’s hemorrhaging to death due to birthing complications, more so than their offspring.

      So Sandra, this ‘new’ sales pitch that infants spontaneously hemorrhage, all because they lack a vitamin K shot is the most ridiculous ‘fear porn’ nonsense by the drug industry I’ve heard in a quite a while, considering that the initial ‘excuse’ for the vitamin K shot ‘when it was first rolled out’ was to prevent newborn hemorrhaging due to vaginal births. What’s even more telling that this ‘new’ so-called Vitamin K shot sales pitch is hogwash from the get-go, is that your ‘trusted’ medical ‘sources’ are ‘all’ targeting the market that needs this shot the least, the newborns of mothers birthing by c section.
