Should I or Shouldn't I - have Flu Vaccinations

Hello - its Winter and Flu time in Australia...

The question often asked of me - is 'Should I have the Flu Shot'.

My answer in short is this; 'I Don't'!
 However if you are in a work place where you  have no choice in the matter then do it prepared. If you have a choice then at least be informed and make your decision based on trusted information, not propaganda.

Information you would be wise to consider.
While many have become used to vaccines being considered "routine," there's really nothing routine about them. Each and every vaccine carries an inherent risk of causing a reaction, injury or death that can be greater for some individuals than others. The seasonal flu vaccine is no exception when it comes to health risks. I know that most people that have them don't get side effects BUT there are many who do.

  •  Vaccines can trigger allergies. Vaccines introduce large foreign protein molecules into your body. Your body can respond to these foreign particles in a way that causes an allergic reaction or triggers autoimmunity, especially in persons genetically or biologically vulnerable to allergy and autoimmunity 

  • Thimerosal, which is 49 percent mercury by volume, is a widely used vaccine preservative.  Mercury is a Well-Known Neurotoxin
 I suggest if you are pregnant or have children and want to get a flu shot, be aware that you may have to specifically insist on getting the thimerosal-free single vial version as many  practitioners are still clueless about the health risks associated with thimerosal. 

  • Vaccines Suppress Your Immune System - so if you or your child go ahead and have the flu or any other vaccination - prepare yourself . Do NOT have an injection if you are feeling sick. Wait to you recover.
How to Prepare for Vaccinations: this is wise for any one who does choose to get the vaccine shot. Build up your natural immune function first so your body at lest has a counter balance to the invasion of the vaccine contents.

The Natural Approach to Prevention and Support if you happen to catch the Flu.
Get your immune system strong enough to counter any virus attacks. Then if you do get sick with the flu, you are better prepared to move through it without complications and soon return to good health.
  1. Vitamin C and Zinc
  2. Herbs; Echinacea, Andrographis, Olive leaf extract.
  3. Make sure you and your child have strong Vitamin D levels. Optimizing your vitamin D levels is one of the absolute best strategies for avoiding infections of ALL kinds, and vitamin D deficiency is likely one of the culprits behind the seasonality of the flu. If your levels are low take 5000 iu's daily. Plus get sun light onto your skin.
  4. Fish oil and oregano oil 
  5. Eat Garlic, onions, turmeric
  6. Avoid Sugar and Processed Foods. Sugar impairs the function of your immune system almost immediately.
  7. Regular Sleep - 6- 8 hours
  8. Exercise. 
  9. Wash Your Hands. Washing your hands will decrease your likelihood of spreading a virus to your nose, mouth or other people. Use chemical-free soap.
