Hepatitis Epidemic and our Children

The past few months has seen an outbreak of hepatitis in children. Children are pretty robust individuals with an immune system that bounces back for the average child.

Obviously, there are sick children; but this is a new problem that has come off the back of the past two years of covid and lockdowns, mask wearing and restrictions, school closures and being treated like lepers and having specialists pointing to them saying they are the super spreaders at one point. They could kill granny. None of this was true.

With this current illness epidemic we have not been told the whole truth about the ages, if the children have been vaccinated or if exposed to the vaccine – for instance through breast feeling or while their mothers have been pregnant. We don’t know the ages or any significant facts that would help identify what’s going on. But for the children themselves and their parents, a child requiring a liver transplant is horrendous. Hopefully their lives have been saved, while others are either very sick or will not survive. I can’t even begin to imagine how frightening this is for families to be faced with this terrible diagnosis.

So, what is hepatitis and how do you catch it? Symptoms of hepatitis include nausea, vomiting, fever, loss of appetite, and vomiting. As hepatitis progresses, other symptoms include dark urine and light-colored stool. The more serious symptoms include jaundice, which is the yellowing of the skin and the whites of the eyes.

For children they normally catch this from coming in contact with the blood or stool of a person who has the disease. Eating or drinking food or water that has been contaminated by blood or stools containing the virus. Fruits, vegetables, shellfish, ice, and water are common sources of the disease. People feel no need to wash fruit, vegetables, and salad despite the amount of research to show what type of bacteria’s and toxins can be found on foods.

Covid is tested for at sewage plants, which means despite them saying it should not be alive virus, they do insist on workers wearing protective clothing in case they come into contact with even water spray.

There are a number of thoughts of where this has come from. Vaccinated parents – shedding covid cells, lack of hygiene, breastfeeding, hand gel for instance.

We can do things about hygiene; we can’t do much about this if its was the vaccine whether via the parent of the child, but we can do something about the use of hand gels.

Why children more than adults?

m of anything in contact with the skin, the amount of use, the lack of handwashing due to the use of gel. The chemicals in gel would directly impact the liver as it has to deal with all the chemicals we ingest or use in our body. I read one comment from an adult asking why should children be affected when adults were not so.

Biologically its rather obvious. It’s their size, the fact they are still growing, less robust to be able to deal with the toxins invading their bodies. I’ve seen schoolteachers making children line up and use gel constantly throughout a school day.

I've seen parents applying liberal amounts of this chemical substance to their children’s hands even tiny children and babies rather than encouraging them to wash with soap and water. The common use of 'wipes' rather than real soap and water is prevalent throughout our modern society. This is not hand washing. People see this as a way of caring for the child, and parents do their best and convenience is the modern way, but at times reverting to old methods just work better. Its better for the environment too as wipes really do create a mass of waste. If there no water available, then as soon as possible wash and use wipes as a back up until then. Or create your own - cotton clothes or J Clothes which are reusable, packed in a waterproof reusable container with water and a little liquid soap.

Applying harsh chemicals to a child sadly will not help their livers. Encouraging child to have a jab to stop another person catching a virus when the child is not at risk is not normal healthcare. Making a child wear a mask when they were under the age of 12 - when mask wearing was mandatory for over 12's was unnecessary and actually at odds with how our body works and what is healthy. Its also prevents the most important things like lip reading, observing facial expressions and mental development.

Hand Gel has been found to be effective against viruses such as SARS-CoV-2, the final product should contain 80% ethanol or 75% isopropyl alcohol. Ethanol is less concentrated than isopropyl alcohol, so needs to contain more. Ethanol is consumed when drinking alcoholic beverages, consuming ethanol alone can cause coma and death. Ethanol is a toxic chemical and should be treated and handled as such, whether at work or in the home. Its toxic to adults, so in theory would be more toxic to children.

So how can you help your child?

  • Stop them using hand gel. Show them how to wash their hands after going to the toilet with soap and water. Even cold water with soap will kill bugs.

  • Wash all fruit, salad and vegetables, even if they are being cooked.

  • Encourage a child to bath really regularly

  • Give you child supplements of minerals and vitamins, give them a chance to detox from the chemical storm we have had to put up with. Just being cooped up indoors will have seriously impacted their nutritional levels, let alone their emotional self and developmental self. Higher Nature do a Ultratrace ™ drops of liquid trace minerals which will help.
