Rethink the Flu Shot

shot.jpg             Have you been considering the flu shot this year?  Just remember two things.  One, the shots do contain actual viruses and mercury, and two there are natural preventatives available.  I always use a homeopathic pill that you take once every two weeks from October through February.  It is homeopathic preventatives for several of the most dangerous flu viruses and this has worked great for me and many others.  There are other remedies available in your local health food stores. Remember too, that washing your hands often is also very effective in preventing infection.  I believe one of the best preventatives is to eat foods that promote a strong immune system and provide the body with the nutrients that keep you healthy. One of my meals every day is a large fruit salad.  Fruits are full of the antioxidants and phytonutrients that are our natural medicines. There are also herbal teas, infusions, that help keep your immune system strong as well as herbal supplements for treatment if you come down with the flu.  Pro-biotics also strengthen our immune system, the system that contains our soldiers that fight disease and germs.  Just be sure to get one from a reliable source.  A Naturopath in Oregon purchased sever different brands of pro-biotics from a local health food store and had them analyzed in a lab and four contained no live bacteria at all.  It is especially important to take the pro-biotic if you are given an anti-biotic this winter.  This will prevent you from becoming immune to the anti-biotic, and it will also prevent digestive distress from the anti-biotic.Also remember that fever is your friend unless it becomes extreme.  It is one of your immune system’s first line of defense.  The heat will destroy many of the viruses.  Check with your practitioner about what becomes a dangerous level of fever. So, remember, you have choices, try a little prevention and stay healthy this winter, naturally.
