Article Body:
The flu shot is always a hot topic of discussion this time of year. There
is always such a sense of panic and fear that sends people running to get
their flu shot. I'm always the "odd man out", for I go running in the
opposite direction. The toxins in the vaccines create side effects for
some that are as bad as or worse than the flu such as muscle aches, sore
throat, fever, chills, congestion, sneezing and headache. There are many
undesirable ingredients in the flu vaccine that we don't hear much about
such as Triton X-100 (a detergent); Polysorbate 80 (a potential
carcinogen); formaldehyde (a known carcinogen); Aluminum (linked to
Alzheimer's disease) and Thimerosal, (a mercury based preservative) which
is being investigated for its link to brain injury, memory loss,
Alzheimer's disease and autoimmune diseases. Hugh Fundenberg, MD an
immuno- geneticist and biologist with nearly 850 papers published in peer
review journals, has reported that if an individual had 5 consecutive flu
shots between 1970 and 1980 (the years studied), his or her chances of
getting Alzheimer's Disease is 10 times higher than if they had 1 or 2
flu shots due to the mercury content. Autism is also being linked to
vaccinations due to the mercury. Many doctors of natural medicine believe
that and vaccines are "quick fixes" that suppress and or destroy our own
immunity leaving humanity as sitting ducks for new strains of pathogens
which mutate faster than the vaccines are produced. By the time one gets
the flu shot, there will be newly mutated strains that will not be
covered with the current shot. It will be covered in next years shot, but
the same cycle will occur.

Whether one chooses the flu shot or not, there are safe and effective
ways to build immunity and ward off the flu as well as other respiratory
problems. The obvious is to eat a healthy diet eliminating or greatly
reducing; soda's, refined flour, sugar and artificial sweeteners
(including sucralose), alcohol, caffeine and tobacco. Exercise regularly,
obtain adequate sleep and drink plenty of purified water. The Center of
Disease Control states that dirty hands are the leading cause of
spreading disease and advises that all adults and children wash their
hands with soap and water many times throughout the day.
There are nutritional supplements that specifically support the immune
system. There are popular homeopathic flu remedies such as
Oscillococcinum by Boiron that can be taken as a preventative; just a few
pellets under the tongue 3 times a week. Silver water in the form of
colloidal or ionized silver has been used for centuries and has anti-
viral, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. A teaspoon a day may be
used as prevention during flu season. My favorite brand is Silver Biotics
Concentrated oil of Mediterranean wild oregano has been proven to have
anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties and may be consumed
at 5-10 drops a few times a day with food. Elderberry is a popular anti-
viral herb that is sometimes traded under the name of Sambucol. There
are many effective immune enhancing formulas which contain many vitamins,
minerals, herbs and homeopathics that target immune system support. Some
of these nutrients include; colostrum, goldenseal, echinacea, elderberry,
zinc, astragalus, garlic, olive leaf, silver, vitamins A,B,C, E, and so
on.

Nourishing the immune system is like building a second line of defense.
It's simple... If you are healthy...you won't get sick.
