It’s that time of year again, and the hype has already started encouraging those at risk to get vaccinated against the flu. I think I got a flu shot once and did indeed get sick shortly there after, and I have not gotten one since. You may have heard before many people proclaiming “I always get the flu after getting the flu shot”. Well after some research I learned why and how this can happen. A flu vaccine is a deadened virus that is designed to force your body into making anti-bodies against the flu virus strain you are vaccinated with. Some people become ill because their immune system is so busy fighting off the flu shot that it cannot fully protect them against whatever else comes along in the meantime.
The problems are these: Many people have serious reactions to vaccines. The flu vaccine is very target specific and even if it is effective, it is only effective against it’s targeted flu virus, and then only for a limited time. You would still be vulnerable to all the other flus flying around. Lastly, there is no substantial evidence that flu vaccines work, and those at risk may catch something truly serious as a result of their weakened immunity following vaccination. Flu vaccines also contain mercury which is known to be harmful to us even at the reduced levels contained in the so-called mercury free flu shots. Now healthcare workers are being forced to get vaccinated in order to keep their jobs. Hospitals that force their employees to get vaccinated are rewarded in the form of government compensations. Is it starting to sound hinky yet???? It is to me!
One of my sayings is “Nature never lets us down”. We are designed to build up our immunity to disease naturally. When we get a cold or a flu our body fights it off. In fact we build up a bigger immunity as a result of a full on case of illness versus a deadened one being introduced into our system. Yes we will be sick for a time and it will suck no doubt, but we naturally rise like phoenix’s with stronger immunity. No vaccination needed. How amazing is that? I am not against all vaccinations mind you, but I am against being sold a bill of goods that isn’t proven effective and that can harm the very people it is supposed to protect. It kills me to think how much money is being made on something that could very well be no better than a placebo.
There are natural things we can do that have been proven effective in reducing the amount of illnesses we contract.
Wash your hands… a lot! Avoid touching your eyes, nose, mouth as much as possible. Take your vitamins. Eat healthy foods. Reduce your sugar intake. Get good rest. Exercise (walk) Try to avoid being around sick people if you can, and remember… if you do get sick that your body is strengthening your armor to protect you in the future.
