I’m sure we all would agree…using a compound that isn’t proven safe when there are MANY effective natural alternatives to boost your immune system is madness! We are talking about the flu vaccine.
Make no mistake, flu vaccination is money driven….both by the manufacturer and by your GP. Dis you realize your GP is paid a huge bonus if certain targets are met?
Don’t believe me? Read this…
The verdict is out on flu shots. Many medical experts now agree it is more important to protect yourself and your family from the flu vaccine than the flu itself. Let’s take a look at the reasons behind this verdict:
1.) There is a total lack of real evidence that young children even benefit from flu shots. A systematic review of 51 studies involving 260,000 children age 6 to 23 months found no evidence that the flu vaccine is any more effective than a placebo.
2.) Trying to guess what strain to vaccinate against each season has proved to be no more effective than a guessing game. This has been very true in recent years with the H1N1 strain. Moreover getting multi-shots will only prove more dangerous as different strains of viruses and harmful ingredients are introduced into your body. When you consider that viruses mutate every 24 hours, how can it be possible to predict what the flu virus will be in 6 months (while developing the vaccine for that season) Also the vaccines are only made to protect against certain strains of the virus, which means that if you come into contact with a different strain of virus you will still get the flu.
3.) There have been thousands of Medical Journal reports revealing that injecting vaccines can actually lead to serious health problems including harmful immunological responses and a host of other infections. This further increases the body’s susceptibility to the diseases that the vaccine was supposed to protect against.
4.) People who get vaccinated often notice they develop runny noses, pneumonia, ear infections and bronchiolitis? The reason is the flu virus introduced in their bodies which creates these symptoms. It also indicates immuno-suppression i.e. lowering of the immunity.
5.) Thimerosal is a mercury-based preservative that has been used for decades in multi-dose vials (vials containing more than one dose) of medicines and vaccines. There is NO safe limit of mercury for human beings…it is the second most toxic element known to man after plutonium. It supresses the immune system so the body cannot fight disease…including viruses. Lack of reaction from the immune system means lack of symptoms…so we are duped into believing we have not got the virus. ( high temperature, phlegm, cough etc are the immune response to a virus not the virus per se) The amount of mercury contained in a multi-dose flu shot is much higher than the maximum allowable daily exposure limit. Mercury toxicity can cause memory loss, depression, ADD, oral health problems, digestive imbalances, respiratory problems, cardiovascular diseases and many more such serious health ailments.
6.) It’s a known fact that Flu vaccines contain strains of the flu virus along with other ingredients. Now think about the impact such a vaccine can have over someone with a suppressed immune system? If you have a disease that is already lowering your body’s ability to fight a virus, taking the flu shot will put your body in danger of getting the full effects of the flu and make you more susceptible to pneumonia and other contagious diseases.
7.) There is mounting evidence that flu shots can cause Alzheimer’s disease. One report shows that people who received the flu vaccine each year for 3 to 5 years had a 10-fold greater chance of developing Alzheimer’s disease than people who did not have any flu shots. Also with age the immune system weakens, thus lowering your ability to fight off infections. Introducing the flu virus in the bodies of elderly could have dangerous consequences.
8.) Can we trust the authorities who are promoting the wide-spread use of flu vaccines? The Centre for Disease Control appoints a 15-member Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). This committee is responsible for deciding who should be vaccinated each year. Almost all the ACIP have a financial interest in immunizations. It’s all about the money and may have very little to do with your health and well being. The very people pushing these vaccines stand to make billions of dollars. This itself creates a doubt on how effective these flu vaccines really are?
9.) Research shows that over-use of the flu-vaccine and drugs like Tamiflu and Relenza can actually alter flu viruses and cause them to mutate into a more deadly strain. Couple this with drug resistant strains and you have virtually no benefits with much risk.
10.) There is enough evidence that shows that the ingredients present in the flu vaccinations can actually cause serious neurological disorders. In the swine flu outbreak, many who got the flu shots developed permanent nerve damage. Flu vaccines can contain many harmful materials including detergent, mercury, formaldehyde, and strains of live flu virus. Is this what you want to put in YOUR body?
Flu shots are indeed more dangerous than you could think, and it is best to rely on natural ways to protect against the flu rather than getting yourself vaccinated.
Isn’t it interesting that the main stream medicine officials never promote the various proven ways to avoid the flu other than through vaccination?
8 ways to prevent flu without drugs
If you’d like to avoid vaccine-related exposures to modified viruses and their cocktails of toxic ingredients, here are some natural ways to lower your chances of coming down with flu.
Multi Strain Probiotics
The trillions of essential bacteria resident in our gut represent 70% of our immune response. They are there to stop harmful organisms entering the blood stream from anything we have swallowed. The other 30% are the white blood cells which come into action when pathogens enter the blood. Due to high sugar, high carbohydrate diets, lack of health green vegetables and vegetable prebiotic fibre, medications, antibiotics, alcohol etc most of us have a very poor or absent colony of these vital organisms. Adjusting your diet, and taking a really potent multistring pre and probiotic will assist your immunity especially over the challenging winter months.
Low blood levels of this vitamin—mostly found in people who don’t get enough (safe) exposure to sunshine—have been associated with an increased risk of respiratory infections in adults, children and infants.
Too-low levels have also been linked to more severe acute bouts of lung infections in children, and to deaths from pneumonia in adults. This is thought to be due to the important role of vitamin D in our immune response to infections.
To keep your circulating levels of vitamin D within the healthy range of 50.1–220 nmol/L, request a blood test from your GP to check your levels, or order a finger-prick test from City Assays online (www.cityassays.org.uk).
Suggested daily dosage: at least 10–15 min/day of sun exposure or 1,000–3,000 IU/day of D3, the natural form of the vitamin
For decades, vitamin C, an essential antioxidant known to play a vital role in immune system formation and function, has been known to fight both flu and cold symptoms.
Recently, a study of 14 young top Polish figure skaters given vitamin C during 10-day training camp showed that levels of two genes related to cellular stress and protein damage were significantly lowered with supplementation of vitamins C during training and sports competitions.
Suggested daily dosage: 1–3 g of ascorbic acid
Green or Black tea
A Japanese review of five studies involving 1,890 participants found that those who gargled with or drank tea (whether green and black) had a 30 per cent lower risk of influenza infection than did participants who used either placebo/water.
Dose: Gargle then drink green or black tea (morning or evening) for at least 60 days, and make sure the tea isn’t too hot
Suggested daily dosage: gargle with tea regularly (morning or evening) for at least 60 days, and make sure the tea isn’t too hot
A natural antibacterial and antiviral, garlic may be worth a try for fending off colds and flu. In one 12-week trial, 146 volunteers who took garlic supplements had significantly fewer colds, fewer sick days and shorter cold durations than those taking a placebo.
Suggested daily dosage: 180 mg/day of allicin (the biologically active ingredient in garlic)
Adults who are more active during the autumn and winter months spend three and a half fewer days suffering with a cold or flu compared with their more sedentary counterparts. Regular exercisers also tend to have milder symptoms when they do fall ill, the researchers discovered.
Suggested daily dosage: around 20 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise—like swimming, jogging or cycling—five or more days a week
TCM Acupuncture has been used for over 3000 years for its beneficial effects on our health. Imbalances within our energy system will lead to disease. Disease cannot enter the body when it is in balance. Therefore using acupuncture to rebalance our system will build up immunity and help prevent infection and disease. Of course it can be used to treat infection and disease in susceptible individuals…but prevention is always better than cure!
Pure essential oils such as Lavender, Tea tree, and Sage are all famous for their anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-microbial actions when absorbed through the skin either by massage king them in using a carrier oil such as almond oil, or in the bath. Eucalyptus, used on a hanky or as a steam inhalation is great for clearing the sinuses. Make sure you purchase your essential oils from a health shop not a supermarket…”aromatherapy” on the bottle does not guarantee it is pure essential oils…artificial ingredients will not work therapeutically and may actually be dangerous.
