Proof that polio was not a disease of the central nervous system and was not a paralyzed muscle but was muscle spasm. Have you heard of Sister Kenny? Most people have not.
And this is why. Chapter 3. "The Kenny Method of Treatment."
Page 18. "Much has been written about the Kenny method of treatment for infantile paralysis. Newspapers, magazines and scientific journals all have carried articles dealing with this form of treatment introduced into America by Miss Elizabeth Kenny, the Australian nurse. Miss Kenny years ago acquired a truly remarkable knowledge of anatomy and of muscle function.
Page 20. "She saw that muscles were painful and sore, that they were hard, contracted and in spasm, pulling the opposite muscles out of shape so that they could no longer function. What did she do? She applied heat. She tore up old blankets, wrung them nearly dry out of very hot water. She repeated this hour after hour and it relieved the pain. The patients felt much better when the hot packs were applied.
Gradually the pain and spasm relaxed, but arms and legs, hand and feet could not move. Gently, Miss Kenny moved them for her patients, moved them so patients would not forget how to do so by themselves. With infinite patience she taught them motion.
The technique of applying heat to relieve pain and the business of re-educating muscles after the pain and spasm has disappeared was not founded upon any knowledge of physiology or pathology of the disease. But it worked. Miss Kenny found that her patients recovered far better and to a greater extent than had those treated by rigid rest and immobilization under the direction of the surgeons and physicians. Most of her patients recovered, while many of those treated by doctors after long months in splints and plaster casts remained crippled and deformed.
HER CLAIMS EXTENSIVELY TESTED.
In 1940 Miss Kenny came to the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis, bearing letters of introduction from her Premier in Queensland Australia. Later she was established at the University of Minnesota supported in her work entirely by funds from the National Foundation. A program for the study of her results was carried out for the purpose of testing the claims advanced. And she was provided with patients so that the observers could determine if she could produce results that were better than had been previously achieved. Full cooperation was given by the University's departments of Orthopedic Surgery and Physical Therapy. At the end of the year a special medical committee appointed by President Basil O'Connor, reported on these results. This report was favorable and, in substance, said that Miss Kenny had apparently been able to do better with her patients than had anyone heretofore. More patients were made available to her and still further study was carried on at the Minneapolis General and the University of Minnesota Hospitals. At the National Foundation's Annual Medical Meeting in December 1941, her work was again reviewed by our Medical Advisory Committees. To the very best of our ability we have carried out the specific recommendations which were made at that time. They were as follows:
The Committee on Epidemics and Public Health and the Committee on Education recommend to the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis that public officials throughout the nation be given, as promptly as possible, information which may be available regarding the nature of the Kenny technique and its integration with other measures of treatment, and the personal available for its application in outbreaks of infantile paralysis.
The Committee recommend furthermore that the training program of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis be expanded to provide additional training for considerable numbers of nurses and physical therapy technicians and recommend expansion of the training program so as to make available additional personnel fully trained in the essentials and principles of the Kenny method.
"The Committee recommend furthermore that the Committee on Medical Publications of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis consider immediately the development of a concise manual providing the essential principles and details of the Kenny method and of other applications of hydrotherapy and physical treatment in the early stage of infantile paralysis."
Physicians had always been taught that infantile paralysis was really paralysis. Kenny claimed that infantile was rarely paralysis, but was really spasm of muscles. This was an exactly opposite concept. Physicians used a method of treatment which consisted of immobilization by casts or splints. Kenny contended that these were all wrong for they merely increased the spasm and led to contractures and permanent deformities. According to her, the thing to do was to apply heat to relax the spasm and then start very early passive and active motion followed by re-education of the involved muscles.
Quickly, with the aid from the National Foundation, men of science took this problem into their laboratories. Time has not been permitted for evaluation of all points, but certain things have been brought out showing that Kenny's claims are on a sound foundation.
SPASM FOUND TO EXIST.
In one laboratory equipped with delicate electrical instruments, the strength of nerve impulses was determined in both paralyzed muscles and those in spasm. As an impulse to produce motion travels down the course of a nerve to a muscle, minute electrical currents are generated. These can be picked up and magnified, as are the waves coming to a radio receiving set. hey can be measured, recorded photographically, studied and analyzed. It was found that many muscles which were unable to move were not truly paralyzed in the sense that their nerves were destroyed, but were in spasm. Nerve impulses still were being sent to them, but these did not produce motion.
In the same laboratory, heat was applied after the Kenny manner, to some of these muscles. They showed recovery of their ability to transmit nerve impulses in a normal way and once more to have these impulses translated into useful motion. Other sick muscles were not treated. After long weeks they still showed their spasm! Here was the first real proof that Miss Kenny was treating a condition which actually did exist!
A great tribute must be paid to Miss Elizabeth Kenny of Australia, not only for her contribution of a new and improved method of treatment of polio, but also for giving stimlus to a new line of scientific endeavor and research---research that may go far in supplying information to fill in the many gaps in our knowledge of this disease.
If you lie down with dogs you'll rise up with fleas.
In 1946 there was a movie made about the life and struggle Sister Kenny had in a world dominated by men.
The name of the movie is, "Sister of Mercy." A woman of integrity who refused to back down in a medical world dominated by men. She was a true hero and her deeds must be brought back to life to help win this unjust battle. Have a Sister Kenny movie night. Invite all your friends. Especially those who believe the lies about Salk, and his vaccine and polio. She said so-called polio was nothing more than muscle spasms. As you read above the medical profession said she was right. Paralysis happened when kids were put in plaster casts and the limbs atrophied. Another case of Iatrogenics the leading cause of disease and death in America today. Disease and death caused by doctors and hospitals.
Sister Kenny was played by Roselind Russell. This story of truth is available on youtube at no cost.
Please watch it and share with others. The polio vaccine of the 1950s is the reason the children are being poisoned with 49 doses of vaccine poison by the time they are 6 years old. Read the card and compare the increase of autism and childhood diseases with the increase of vaccines. Expose the myth of Salk and polio and outlaw vaccines forever.
Keep in mind that infantile paralysis was a condition that affected babies as young as 6 months and up to 5 years. The more vaccinations given over the years caused some older people to develop polio. The vaccine appearently caused nerve damage.
The real cause of infantile paralyses I believe is nerve blockage. The life force (nerves) to the muscle somehow were blocked or pinched. Probably from mal-nutrition. Sister Kenny's treatment (hot packs and massage )allowed the nerves to be restored. The medical treatment (plaster cast and braces) caused the muscles to waste away.
EXPOSING THE LIE SALK WIPED POLIO IN ONE NEWSPAPER
THE KENNY CONCEPT OF INFANTILE PARALYSIS AND ITS TREATMENT.

Miss Kenny says, I also wish to extend my thanks to the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis for its financial aid, without which it would have been impossible to have made this work available.
Basil O'Connor says "There was in the United States a National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis to lead and direct the fight, and Miss Kenny's patients were far better than those treated by other methods, and there must be found ways of preventing the spread of the virus that causes infantile paralysis."

More proof of the polio fraud. Where is the electric?
OUTLAW VACCINES BEFORE ITS TOO LATE!
1013 kids got polio from the vaccine and the placebo. I am exposing the greatest fraud in medical history.
