Well friends it's that time of year...
Flu Season is in full swing. Better go get your Flu Shot, right?!?
Hold on a minute...before you get a needle (full of all kinds of questionable materials), let's do some critical thinking around this whole Flu thing.
The purpose of this article is to simply arm you with some information before you blindly accept what 'they' are telling you, before you just get in line to be inoculated, influenced by the Influenza propaganda machine and conventional wisdom 'programs', which drive millions to get their annual flu shot.
I won't be getting the Flu Shot this year and have not in years past, even when (as the son of a Medical Doctor) my shots were offered up free!
The Flu Shot simply is not proven to be safe and effective.
The verdict is out on flu shots and even many medical experts now agree it is more important to protect yourself and your family from the flu vaccine than the actual flu bug itself.
No thanks, I'll take my chances, armed with the right knowledge and knowing there is indeed many Safe and Natural ways to prevent catching the Flu and staying Healthy this year!
It takes about two weeks after you are vaccinated for your body to create the antibodies to fight the Flu and we assume scientists match the given vaccine to the exact flu strain going around.
It’s an educated guess essentially and the efficacy of the vaccine lies in their ability to match the two correctly.
• You can still get the flu if you have been vaccinated if the strain you caught doesn’t match that which was in your vaccine.
• You can still get the flu even if the strains were indeed properly matched but your immune system was not intact.
You’re rolling dice, my friends!
Mercury, which is used as a preservative in an ingredient called "Thimerosal", is in many of the flu shots out there.
Toxic substances like mercury should never be injected in any living being; the consequences can be disastrous.
Did you know that the Flu Shot itself can suppress your immune system and your ability to fight off viruses and disease?
Flu Vaccines contain strains of the flu virus (along with other questionable ingredients) that affect everyone differently.
People who have health challenges already face the danger of getting the full effects of the flu and that makes them more susceptible to pneumonia.
Systemic Inflammation is something we absolutely want to manage to help prevent disease.
• The Flu Vaccine elicits an inflammatory response in the body,
• A rarely discussed topic addressed by conventional health authorities or mainstream media, namely flu vaccines result in inflammatory reactions, may do harm to your heart, increasing your risk of a heart attack.
• This can also lead to damaging a developing fetus and the fragile immune system of infants.
Yes, people die from the Flu shot each year.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports the number of deaths each year from the Flu in the US is 36,000 (many of whom had the flu vaccine too btw). My research shows the number of deaths each year from Flu overall to be much less than that 'official' stat, do your homework.
And one final bonus reason...
Ever since I used to get shots (one in each arm weekly) for Allergies (which i no longer suffer from btw, but that's another article) I just don't care for getting 'pricked' and especially not with 'stuff' that I'd rather not put into my body.
• Superfruit or
• Wheat Grass shot or maybe even a good shot of
• Organic 100% Agave Tequila, yes please!
An empowered Immune System is the best defense against the Flu Bug and other nasties out there.
How do we defend ourselves and strengthen our immunity NATURALLY!?
That's the topic of my next article, stay tuned!
Until then take good care of YOU my friends!
Cheers to our Healthy & Fun (Flu-free) Success!
