3 Natural Ways To Flu Prevention

First I will say that I do not believe that getting a flu shot is the best prevention for the flu, as we are consistently and continually told. 
In my opinion, a person is worse off after receiving the flu shot. There are two main reasons that I do not receive nor recommend the flu shot:
  1. The flu vaccine has never been truly proven to be effective.

Each year, 200-300 different strains of the flu can go around; the vaccine protects against 2 of them.

2. In my opinion, the harmful ingredients contained in the vaccines are worse for our immediate and long-term health than actually getting the flu.

I will not take the time to go over each ingredient listed in each separate flu vaccine, but I will name a few of them: thirmerosal, formaldehyde, phosphate buffers, sodium phosphate, monosodium glutamate {MSG!}, and the list goes on!
Here are some of the possible side effects from the flu vaccine: significant respiratory and gastrointestinal symptoms, seizure, allergic asthma , decreased appetite, increased mitochondrial encephalomyopathy, partial facial paralysis, Guillain-Barré syndrome, Bell’s palsy, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, herpes zoster [shingles]
The good news is that there are natural ways to help prevent the flu, and even shorten the miserable effects of the flu if you do come down with it!
While hand washing, exercise, less stress, adequate sleep and diet can all play a role in how often we get sick and how severe the sickness is, I’m focusing on 3 easy ways you can help prevent the flu.

    I couldn’t agree with you more. When I am asked on the phone if I can be scheduled for a flu shot, I answer “Most certainly NOT”. It’s scary how many people believe that they need one every year. Off to read the post!
