Swine Flu and You

I’m not anti-vaccine, but I do resist anything that has been rushed to the market without years of unbiased testing. Swine flu vaccine scares me because it falls into this category. There are reports of deaths and severe neurological disease as a result of the vaccine. One report stated there have been more deaths in France from the vaccine than there have been from the flu.

What can you do instead of vaccination?

  • Frequent hand washing.
  • Plenty of rest.
  • Vitamins C and D, and zinc.
  • Nasal rinsing with saline or an herbal product such as Nasal Mist (NOW foods).
  • As soon as you feel a sore throat coming on, gargle with warm salt and lemon tea.
  • Keep warm. It’s better to encourage the fever that your immune system uses to kill germs. Avoid chilling.
  • Acidophilus and other probiotics.
  • Immune enhancing herbs: Garlic, echinacea, oregon grape, elderberry, quercetin, golden seal, olive leaf, Reishi and shiitake mushrooms, etc (Total Well Being from Pure Wellness Labs contains all of these)
  • Non-sweet liquids such as water, vegetable juices, Greens First, Red Alert, and soups.
  • Avoid sweet foods. They suppress white blood cells. (Orange juice doesn’t have enough vitamin C to overcome the immune suppression of its sugar content).
  • AlliUltra Liquid, a liquid concentrate of allicin (the active ingredient in garlic) can be gargled, sniffed, dropped into ears, or nubulized into the lungs.

Vaccinate yourself with a healthy lifestyle rather than with experimental therapies

Flu shots = money, not safety. Unfortunately, what is little understood by the general public is that the only reason people die from the flu is that they have either an immune suppressing chronic illness, such as diabetes, direct immune dysfunction, dietary deficiencies of critical immune-supporting nutrients, chronic pulmonary disease, heart disease or cancer. What we’re not being told can hurt us and our children!
