Brain Injured Girl in Virginia Diagnosed With ADEM After Flu Shot

Brain Injured Girl in Virginia Diagnosed With ADEM After Flu Shot

In 2016, 14-month-old Kynslee Mullins of Spotsylvania County, Virginia was a healthy toddler who was just learning to walk and talk. The child’s health began to deteriorate shortly after receiving the influenza vaccine. One morning, Kynslee awakened “without the use of her entire body,” says her mother, Mary.1

Now nearly four and a half years old, Kynslee is reportedly unable to “sit up or hold up her head, roll over or crawl.” The child is “fed through a tube in her stomach, but spits up often and has so much trouble swallowing that choking is a constant concern.”1

According to a recent article in The Free Lance–Star, the “presumptive diagnosis” of what may have caused Kynsee’s condition is a rare neurological disorder known as Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM).1

The U.S. National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) describes ADEM as a “brief but widespread attack of inflammation in the brain and spinal cord that damages myelinthe protective covering of nerve fibers” and it says that ADEM “often follows viral or bacterial infections, or less often, vaccination for measles, mumps, or rubella.”1 2

The article in The Free Lance–Star reports that Kynslee’s parents believe that the “flu shot caused the damage.” It notes that the parents do not have “medical reports that connect [the flu shot] to their daughter’s condition.” However, this may be because, according to Kynslee’s father, Dan, “doctors and nurses typically stop taking notes about Kynslee’s medical history when he mentions the flu shot.”1

The article in The Free Lance–Star quoted Mr. Mullins as saying, “We did it without even knowing this was a possibility. And everybody should know this is a possibility.”1

On Sept. 12, 2018, The Vaccine Reaction reported on the case of 14-year-old Christopher Bunch of Moline, Illinois who died of ADEM on Aug. 14, 2018, three weeks after getting the HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccine Gardasil. ADEM is a reported side effect of Gardasil. It is listed in the Gardasil package insert.3

The development of ADEM has long been associated with infections and vaccinations.4 5

ADEM has been linked to the influenza vaccine.6 7 8

      What is it going to take? Revoking the vaccine manufacturer’s liable protection that CONgress approved and passed the bill to prevent law suits. THAT’S what is going to change this. The corruption in CONgress is deep and wide and covers BOTH parties. Another aspect is the total lack of training in medical schools in regards to the symptomatic associations to vaccine damage. Several doctor friends of mine have told me they were never told what to look for. Lastly, revoke the liable protection given to doctors and staff who vaccinate.

      There aren’t enough educated people saying “No” to effect a change in policy. This is what the media, AMA, government agencies and vaccine manufactures are banking on – pun intended.
      It will take a massive outcry of educated people, banging on the doors of their elected officials and law suits against them that might change things.

      By your statement it is clear you have never researched to any great degree how vaccines do not keep people safe. After 45 years of hundreds of hours spent in the medical libraries in 3 States and working with families whose children have been devastated from vaccines, your ignorant bias shines through. I have over 2,000 clinical studies from peer-reviewed medical journals that prove irrefutably vaccines do not protect against the diseases they claim to; cause irreversible neurological and immune system diseases both immediately after and years later. History DOES NOT show vaccines did much, in fact just the opposite. Childhood diseases were already in sharp decline because of improvements to hygiene long before vaccines were introduced. Here’s a partial book list should you ever decide to take a serious, unbiased look at vaccines:

      “Vaccination Voodoo: What You Don’t Know About Vaccines”
      By Catherine Frompovich

      “Vaccination: 100 Years of Orthodox Research Shows that Vaccines Represent a Medical Assault on the Immune System”

      by Kevin Barry and Robert F Kennedy Jr. – Kindle edition only

      There are several more books documenting the dangers of vaccines you can find at Amazon.com – any from Dr. Sherry Tenpenny DO are excellent references.

      Websites:
      https://www.thevaccinereaction.org – an online newsletter of the National Vaccine Information Center

      http://www.greatergoodmovie.org – website for documentary highlighting several personal stories of vaccine tragedies to bring increased awareness.

      http://www.whale.to – has a great amount of information related to vaccines.

      Dr. Barbara Loe Fischer – Co- Founder

      http://vaccineresearchlibrary.com – The title says it all – access to hundreds of studies.
      There are many more websites but these are the most reputable

      Sadly, it’s people like yourself, unwilling to do serious research and instead listen to the media and other propaganda outlets to form an “opinion” based on the media and not on the science withheld from the public but is available through medical libraries and journals.

      Sorry Tara but you really have to do some more research on vaccine injuries. Millions have been injured and their stories are recorded through VAERS and the MHRA (UK). Vaccines are not ‘safe and effective’ and anyone who tells you otherwise is lying. There is a huge pharmaceutical industry that is making a fortune out of vaccines and they really don’t care whether children or adults are sacrificed in pursuit of their profits. We would all like to think vaccines are safe but truth is far removed from this. Any parent that is naive enough to think there is no risk is exactly the customer Big Pharma is looking for. Our governments have been ‘captured’ by these huge industries – they are as brainwashed as we all were until we experienced first hand the devastation of injury or death. The US is the most vaccinated nation in the world and has the most chronically sick children – and the highest autism rate. The US also has the highest infant mortality rate in the developed world. Children have more allergies, cancers and auto-immune disease than ever before – and yet vaccines have never been subject to a long term double-blind placebo study – or even a large scale vaccinated vs non-vaccinated study. No other drug is treated in this manner. Only vaccine manufacturers are exempt from prosecution when there is a death or injury. The whole system is corrupt with the gatekeepers actively involved in vaccine production and promotion. The CDC is a revolving door of pharma employees and lackeys. In case you have forgotten:
      Thalidomide and Vioxx were hailed as ‘safe and effective’. They pale by comparison to the number of deaths and injuries caused by vaccines.

      You will need a Freedom of Information request to find out how many deaths and injuries are (under-reported) to MHRA in the UK. Why the secrecy? Because the numbers will shock you. There have been 15 UK deaths (as at 9/5/2019) already this year and thousands of injuries. Don’t accuse those affected of being ‘irresponsible’ – those who refuse to check the facts are irresponsible and because of this blind faith and grossly exaggerated fear of mild childhood illnesses – the BIG Pharma vaccine manufacturers, fully exempt from prosecution, are laughing all the way to the bank.

      In reply to your statement “Most affected have underlying UNDIAGNOSED issues.”: Yes, they rapidly become DIAGNOSED and devastating issues after the shots. Your logic seems to run like this: The vaccine harmed you therefore you must have been “defective” because “we” already know it wasn’t the shot.

      I can reasonably surmise you are in massive denial or have money at stake. Please don’t clog these comments with repetitive and dismissive remarks. They don’t serve a useful purpose if you are unwilling to consider facts or respect people who may have suffered devastating vaccine injury.

    Viruses in the body feed on vaccine toxins which cause damage. Every person should have the right to determine whether or not they will take a vaccine. Some vaccines are life saving – while others are unnecessary, ineffective and harmful. Educate yourself and stand up for what’s good for you and your loved ones.

    I think all the old politicians need to be voted out. This gives rise to new blood. At least however crooked they might be, they are not nearly as smart as the old ones who only care about filling their pockets thru lobbying money. God help all of us until this situation is cleared up. The way we vote can cure a lot of things. Take the time to search all your politicians records as to how they vote.

      It’s simple. Really simple. “EDUCATION BEFORE YOU VACCINATE”
      As the local paper here quoted “ We did it without even knowing it was a possibility. And I just want everyone to know it is a possibility”. Her life was stripped away. Her brothers life altered for life along with our own. I do not wish this on any body. I will never tell someone not to vaccinate, simply tell them it is a decision they have to make on their own. Hear is some literature, read before your receive. Some how some way we need to come together as a community and stop standing in line for the next command. We have a choice. We the people decide.

    This just in. Mike Adams with Natural News is proven again to be highly credible. Now that censorship is ramping up at an alarming pace, more people will be driven to his content, and content at sites like NVIC, known the risks, vaxxed, etc. Facebook, twitter, google searching, and many many others are now engaging in systematic racketeering and censorship, removing all vaccine safety orientated content from their platforms. People have a hard time getting their minds around corruption at this level. It’s real. They know how dangerous these products are. They sell them anyways. Remember that when considering vaccines, there is no turning back.

    Still waiting on a printed magazine monthly or quarterly or bi yearly at least from NVIC, so we can leave that in the doctors offices and such. Nothing spreads the message to strangers like paper printed publications. It’s not an abstract concept, spreading information through printed magazines. It’s quite likely that NVIC members are shadow banned on facebook and don’t even know it. You know that facebook is ultra corrupt and every message, every document, every connection is mapped and controlled through facebook. They probably give the big vaccine producers secret access to all your private messages, facebook has been caught doing that with news organizations. The Vaccine Reaction printed magazine suddenly appearing and persisting at major medical offices across America, no matter how many times the corrupted doctors throw them away. How much will it cost?

    One at least holds out hopes the parents of this child are eating non gmo, pesticide free truly organic, flouride free, quality filtered water, chemical free dr bronners soaps, and never get a shot again, so as to give the childs body the best chance of partial recovery which may be available. Get some dna force, krill oil, X2 iodine, pure liquid b complex vitamins from the IW store and see if the coq10 helps to repair the telomomers and perhaps cleanses some of those toxins from the gray matter. Use natural chelation with garlic and cilantro to lift those heavy metals away. We’re fully aware of how many kids get crushed from vaccines, now on to what we can do to mitigate this and perhaps try and help them get better.

    To what history are you referring Tara? History, present, and future is proving you wrong. There is NO science to suggest vaccines are safe. Why has 4 billion dollars been handed over to parents of dead or disabled kids? In fact Congress as half cocked as they are have stated vaccines are UN-AVOIDABLY unsafe and ineffective.
    So who is being irresponsible?
    I was irresponsible for my own ignorance when my 14 year old daughter received her Guardisil vaccine which permanently disabled her! My other two kids 2 and 12 years are NOT vaccinated and pillars of health, physically gifted. My 12 year old hasn’t been sick fo 6 years. My 2 year old only a runny nose once.
    Either you are uneducated on this subject or you have a vested interest in vaccines (paid troll).

    I don’t know how to contact them, but for what it is worth (a lot perhaps?) they should make up a homeopathic remedy for her, “Like cures like” in homeopathy using the flu vaccine in the remedy. Keep diluting the vaccine and “pound” it. Also maybe introduce healthy fats into her diet like raw milk, colostrum, raw cream from grass fed cows. Check out Weston A Price foundation for great non-agenda information about why people are so screwed up. MS is supposedly helped by a high fat diet (raw milk and cream).

    Mamabear, but the vaccine manufactures or doctors are being negligent in making sure individuals do not have conditions that could cause severe vaccine injury. They are not doing their due diligence in protecting all people. This becomes an even larger issue when the govt starts mandating vaccines. My guess your kids have never had any issues with their vaccines. Both mine have been exempt due to reactions that are contraindicated in the vaccine pamphlet itself, but our ped at the time never said anything, because she probably did not know. My other child had a more severe reaction to her MMR at 3 years old. Her immune system responded with significant inflammation, lost all of her hair, and had severe limb pain for years. Thankfully she did not have a more significant reaction because we would be living in a different world.

    Mark R’s comments and reply are spot on. The pro-vax contingent have this in common: 1. They have never had the terrible experience of seeing their own child injured by a vaccine. 2. They swallow what the big corporations and the bought-and-paid-for government shills and the ad besotted media parrots tell them without questioning anything. 3. They don’t do any research on their own. If these folks want to expose themselves to the long list of poisons in vaccines, they have the choice to do so, but let them not complain about their dementia and many auto-immune disease in future. And let them leave the rest of us, who don’t want to be lab animals for BigPharma experiments alone. What would REALLY reveal the truth about vaccines would be a large neutral study, done by an institution or entity with no connections to medical or pharmaceutical companies or any agency or institution connected with them, comparing the overall health of vaccinated vs unvaccinated people. It would quickly prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that vaccines have been an unmitigated disaster.

    Matt, there actually is one that got eradicated: smallpox. In fact that is where the term ‘vaccine’ came from, because the inoculation was derived from cow (vaca) pox. The problem is that so many in the medical field went off half cocked and convinced themselves that if it worked for smallpox then the same procedure should work for any disease. At which point you become right: it has not worked for any other disease, not even polio, as if often alleged.

    Vaccines cause more problems than they help. I have learned that, at least from what I have read, that the kids who are affected negatively by vaccines do not have enough sulfur in their systems. Sulfur is very healing. IF I was going to vaccinate my child, I would be giving them MSM before and after a vaccine. MSM helps to flush out toxins and the kids affected apparently don’t have enough sulfur in their systems to flush out all of the toxins so they settle in the brain and cause other problems later in life.

    If I had a child that was vaccine damaged, I would be giving them MSM and 100% pine gum spirits. You have to start out with very low doses, or they will feel terrible. You need to flush out toxins slowly to not have the healing crisis effect. When you flush out too many at once, the body can’t get rid of them fast enough and so…. you feel bad.

    All big pharm cares about is the almighty dollar.
