Protect yourself - do NOT go with the flow



How to Protect Yourself without Drugs and Vaccinations

There will always be threats of flu pandemics, real or created, and potentially toxic vaccines will continue to be peddled as the solution until enough people realize there’s a better, safer, saner way.

You can break free of the drug-solution trap right now by following these natural health principles. I have not caught a flu in over two decades, and you can avoid it too, without getting vaccinated, by following these simple guidelines, which will keep your immune system in optimal working order so that you're far less likely to acquire the infection to begin with.

Optimize your vitamin D levels

As I've previously reported, optimizing your vitamin D levels is one of the absolute best strategies for avoiding infections of ALL kinds, and vitamin D deficiency is likely the TRUE culprit behind the seasonality of the flu -- not the flu virus itself.

This is probably the single most important and least expensive action you can take.

If you are coming down with flu like symptoms and have not been on vitamin D you can take doses of 50,000 units a day for three days to treat the acute infection. Some researchers like Dr. Cannell, believe the dose could even be as high as 1,000 units per pound of body weight for three days.

Avoid sugar and processed foods

Sugar decreases the function of your immune system almost immediately, and as you likely know, a strong immune system is key to fighting off viruses and other illness. Be aware that sugar is present in foods you may not suspect, like ketchup and fruit juice.

Get enough rest

Just like it becomes harder for you to get your daily tasks done if you're tired, if your body is overly fatigued it will be harder for it to fight the flu.

Have effective tools to address your stress

We all face some stress every day, but if stress becomes overwhelming then your body will be less able to fight off the flu and other illness. If you feel that stress is taking a toll on your health, consider using an energy psychology tool such as Meridian Tapping Techniques, which is remarkably effective in relieving stress associated with all kinds of events, from work to family to trauma.

Exercise

When you exercise, you increase your circulation and your blood flow throughout your body. The components of your immune system are also better circulated, which means your immune system has a better chance of finding an illness before it spreads. You can review my exercise guidelines for some great tips on how to get started.

Take a good source of omega-3 fats like krill oil

Increase your intake of healthy and essential fats like the omega-3 found in krill oil, which is crucial for maintaining health. It is also vitally important to avoid damaged omega-6 oils like trans fats found in most processed foods, as it will seriously damage your immune response.

Wash your hands

Washing your hands will decrease your likelihood of spreading a virus to your nose, mouth or other people. Be sure you don't use antibacterial soap for this -- antibacterial soaps are completely unnecessary, and they cause far more harm than good. Instead, identify a simple chemical-free soap that you can switch your family to.

Eat garlic regularly

Garlic works like a broad-spectrum antibiotic against bacteria, virus, and protozoa in the body. And unlike with antibiotics, no resistance can be built up so it is an absolutely safe product to use. However, if you are allergic or don't enjoy garlic it would be best to avoid as it will likely cause more harm than good.

Avoid hospitals and vaccines

In this particular case, I'd also recommend you stay away from hospitals unless you're having an emergency, as hospitals are prime breeding grounds for infections of all kinds, and could be one of the likeliest places you could be exposed to flu bugs of all kinds.

This is all wonderful advice, i loathe flu vaccines and never get them, they contain mercury and the virus itself,causing a mild form of the virus which is contagious to people around you who haven't had the vaccine ,kinda rude eh?i always keep plenty of echinacea and vitamin a and d and c
as well and goldenseal to help flush the daily toxins we absorb just from breathing and eating.

I agree with this post 100%. Never took a flu shot, and I rarely get flu (once in 5 years).
Where can you find Vitamin D, except taking supplements?

I love all of your advice & choices of things to do to stay healthy. Unfortunately, if you're in a 'high risk' group, the vaccinations are necessary. My son has asthma, and I had cancer...so it was necessary for us;-(

Thanks for the info Rainey. I probably don't get enough vitamin D because I don't eat or drink much dairy. Haven't seen the sun shine much either! Should probably look into the vitamins.

I agree wholeheartedly, especially about the sugar. I never knew, until I finally got off it, how much it affected my energy level.

Wishing you all a healthy winter season.

MaryDelle ~ It was good info that I got in a newsletter.

J.J. ~ We are taking echinacea and other herbs as well, plus using essential oils for detoxing and well-being. By the way, thanks for the tip about the nickel. A bummer to not be able to use it now, don't want a law suit. I will just use my baubles for Christmas ornaments.

vrtlarica ~ Dairy and sunshine for vit. D. Supplements is the way to go for those who don't get enough sunshine, especially in the winter.

Jan ~ Wishing you and your son good health. Bless your heart.

Jane ~ Do look into vitamins and herbs too. They are all good for our health and overall well-being.

Marti ~ We hardly eat sugar anymore. I have a little to sweeten coffee and tea. We never were into sodas, we drink LOTS of water all day long, and desserts are not an everyday event anymore either.

Blessings and good health for all.
