There's a long list of reasons why flu vaccines don't work.
Besides unquestionably interfering with
your immune system, they increase infection rates and hamper flu
prevention more than any other intervention that exists.
Nature has the ultimate flu shot with
pure, ultra immune boosting power that a vaccine can never match.
There is no question that
the cold virus is more stable in cold
temperature, so it survives and lingers airborne much
longer due to the dry, cold conditions.
There is a
difference between symptoms related to the
cold virus and flu virus, but possibly the number one
reason the human body is susceptible to the cold virus in the winter
is its virulence.
Additionally, cold, low humidity air dries out the nasal passages
and makes virus transmission more likely. Researchers have found
that in winter, even the flu virus wears a coat, and it's a coat
that helps the virus spread through the air.
The symptoms we get during a viral illness are often the body's
attempt to get rid of the virus and to minimize damage. Sneezing
ejects the virus from the nose, cough from the lungs and throat,
vomiting from the stomach, and diarrhea from the intestines.
What most people don't realize is that the flu is not very common at
all. The symptoms of influenza infection can be hard to distinguish
from those caused by other viruses that trigger the common cold.
Chances are that if you're 30 or over, it may be a cold.
That's the message from research showing
that people aged 30 or more can expect just two bouts of flu per
decade for the rest of their lives.
Since the two illnesses share some
similar symptoms, and both come during "cold and flu season," the
two often run together in people's minds, but they are not the same.
With more than 200 viruses known to cause influenza-like illness
(ILI), a person can get a flu shot and still become sick with what
is described as "the flu". According to CDC data, almost 90% of all
influenza-type illnesses are NOT caused by the influenza virus, thus
influenza viruses are ONLY active 14% of the time.
Overall, flu vaccines don't work for the majority of
What does work is eating as healthy as
you can and using nature's medicine chest to increase your immunity.
9 Ways To
Keep Your Immune System Strong Against The Cold Virus
USE NATURE'S FLU SHOT
all ingredients and store in a glass jar. This recipe
works exceptionally well if you start taking it just as you
start to feel symptoms.
At that point, take 1 cup 3
times per day until symptoms resolve.
LIVE IN A WARMER CLIMATE
Unfortunately, this is the number one and best preventive
defense against the cold virus, but not much consolation to
those living far from equator. Sorry Minnesota.
TAKE THE SUNSHINE VITAMIN
Vitamin D is shown to
reduce the risk of flu to a third of what it would otherwise
The correct daily dose of
vitamin D3 for adults is approximately 5,000 IU/day, not the
200 to 600 IU recommended by the Institute of Medicine, the
National Institutes of Medicine and the FDA.
You may even be shocked to know
that there are many physicians in both Canada and the United
States who prescribe as much as 50,000 IU of vitamin D daily
as a treatment for a long list of chronic diseases.
Probiotics are live
bacteria and yeasts that are good for your health,
especially your digestive system.
High potency Probiotic
Laktokhan contain the exact
ratio needed of live microorganisms that contribute to a
natural healthy gut flora, which benefits health.
Laktokhan helps to manage acute
infectious diarrhea, and it reduces the risk of, and helps
manage, antibiotic-associated diarrhea.
STAY AWAY FROM SUCROSE
Its ability to impair and depress the immune system
STAY AWAY FROM ALL VACCINES,
ESPECIALLY THE FLU SHOT
vaccines still contain
mercury and only work to depress the immune system.
Regardless of what statistics
your government has released, the actual chances of a flu
vaccine preventing the flu are
less than 4 percent
USE VIRUS-FIGHTING HERBS
Some of the best immune stimulants are anti-viral herbs.
Virus-fighting herbs include purple coneflower, pot marigold
and black elder.
Other important antiviral herbs
yarrow herb (Achillea
hyssop herb (Hyssopus
lemon balm herb (Melissa
St. Johnswort (Hypericum
marjoram herb (Origanum
oregano herb (Origanum
heal-all herb (Prunella
rosemary herb (Rosmarinus
blue vervain herb
It is important to begin taking
the herbs as soon as you think you are getting sick. Take
your formulation four to six times per day until you are
Probably nothing else you do will make a greater difference
in your overall health than a detox.
The liver is so important to our
well-being that many healers maintain that most diseases
cannot develop in the body with a clean liver, so a
liver detox is essential at
Supplementing for liver health
is vital but there are
plenty of foods that can
also detox the entire body.
DEEP ACTING IMMUNE TONICS
Another group of herbs that help to improve and optimize
immune function are the immune tonics. These herbs are
deeper acting than immune stimulants, but take longer to
North American ginseng
root (Panax quinquefolius)
lacquered polypore or
reishi mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum)
artist's conk (Ganoderma
Chinese milkvetch root (Astragalus
Siberian ginseng root (Eleutherococcus
Combine two or three immune
tonics and take them three to four times per day for two to
three months. Immune tonics are not suitable for treating
infections in progress.
They are used for preventive
purposes or to optimize immune function and work best after
first doing several cycles of immune stimulants.
There are also many other important antioxidant nutrients that
support immune functioning. These include the carotenes, flavonoids
and other polyphenols such as those found in green tea, grape seed,
pine bark and various berry extracts.
The best food sources of
immune-enhancing nutrients are fresh fruits, vegetables, and
