It is indeed a fact that for most children who develop measles, chicken pox, rubella or any of the other common childhood infections, they will never experience these same infections again. However, I do not accept the belief or the assumption, that this is because such infections confer life-long immunity against having them again.
Measles, chicken pox, rubella and the other childhood infections represent an acute crisis of toxic elimination. In order for the body to mount an acute crisis there must be a large reserve of vitality which most children possess. Unfortunately, by the time most children grow to adulthood, this reserve of vitality has been greatly diminished, due largely to poor eating habits, drugs, vaccines, chemical poisons in food and water, atmospheric pollutants and the depressing effects of fear, worry and other negative emotions. By adulthood, few adults have sufficient vitality left to mount an acute crisis such as measles or chicken pox.
Although adults can still experience a crisis of elimination, it is more often in the form of a cold or flu which generally does not involve fever and can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. For those adults who are diagnosed with measles, whooping cough, chicken pox etc, it will often be found that their fever is two to three degrees below what a child’s fever would be if experiencing the same infection. This is due to the adults lower vitality state.
For those children whose vitality remains strong and where there is no history of drug suppression, then there is no physiological reason why such children cannot experience measles, chicken pox or any of the other childhood infections on more than one occasion should their toxicity level exceed their body’s toxic threshold. Indeed, Herbert Shelton, the most renowned Natural Hygienist of the 20th century has confirmed from his own clinical experiences, cases of chicken pox, measles etc, occurring in the same child on two, three or even more occasions.
