Say ‘No’ to the Flu Shot & Boost Your Immune System Naturally

Think you need an annual flu shot to protect yourself from getting sick this winter?

Think again.

According to Dr. J. Anthony Morris, the former Chief Vaccine Control Officer at the FDA, “There is no evidence that any influenza vaccine, thus far developed, is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza.”

In fact, studies show that flu vaccines only have a 1.5% effective rate. There are over 300 strains of the flu virus and the flu shot only addresses three of them, while actually increasing your risk for paralysis and brain damage in the form of Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Why the risk?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and  Prevention, “The following substances are found in flu vaccines: aluminum,  antibiotics, egg protein, formaldehyde, human aborted fetal apparatus (dead human tissue), monosodium glutamate (MSG), and thimerosol (mercury).”

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to pay to have myself and my loved ones injected with toxins and dead human tissue for a 1.5% chance of avoiding the flu (which we only have a 20% chance of getting in the first place).

“The winter flu shot myth is based entirely on junk science designed to serve the interests of pharmaceutical companies who sell the vaccines,” explains Natural News founder Mike Adams. “An honest look at the science reveals the unavoidable truth about flu shots  — they’re virtually worthless at preventing the flu. People would  be much better off to skip the shots and engage in healthier exercise and  dietary habits.”

A Natural Approach

Flu shots are said to boost the body’s own immune system in order to make it more resistant to disease. But all vaccines contain chemical toxins which are acidifying to the body and actually weaken our immune system.

According to Dr. Robert O. Young, sickness and disease cannot thrive unless it has an acidic environment to live and grow in, and by alkalizing our bodies, we create a more disease-resistant body.

Alkalizing the body can be achieved by switching to ionized alkaline water, eating more alkaline fruits and vegetables, reducing stress, getting adequate sleep and soft exercise, and reducing exposure to acidic substances like drugs, alcohol, chemical cleaners and commercial beauty products.

Taking vitamin D supplements and drinking herbal tea have also been found to bolster the immune system naturally. By nourishing your body from the inside out you will be able to protect yourself from flus and colds this winter, rendering flu shots completely unnecessary.

Importance of Filtering Chlorine Out of Shower Water

Did you know that during the course of one ten minute shower, your body will absorb as much chlorine as if you were to drink eight 8-oz. glasses of the same water?

Hot showers cause chlorine to turn into a vapor we inhale. At the same time, our pores dilate from the heat and are able to absorb more chlorine through our skin.

According to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, “Breathing small amounts of chlorine for short periods of time adversely affects the human respiratory system. Effects range from coughing and chest pain to water retention in the lungs. Chlorine irritates the skin, the eyes, and the respiratory system.”

And yet, chlorine has been used to disinfect our tap water since 1908.

Dr. Zoltan P. Rona, author of The Joy of Health and Return to the Joy of Health and past president of the Canadian Holistic Medical Association states:

“Numerous scientific studies report that chlorinated tap water is a skin irritant and can be associated with rashes like eczema. Chlorinated water contains chemical compounds called trihalomethanes which are carcinogens resulting from the combination of chlorine with compounds in water. These chemicals, also known as organochlorides, do not degrade very well and are generally stored in the fatty tissues of the body (breast, other fatty areas, mother’s milk, blood and semen). Organochlorides can cause mutations by altering DNA, suppress immune system function and interfere with the natural controls of cell growth. Anything you can do to filter tap and shower water that eliminates or minimizes chlorine would certainly be helpful and possibly curative for some immune system problems. The use of water filtration devices is increasingly popular and affordable. Discuss their use with your health care practitioner.”

In her book, Be Perfectly Healthy, Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy explains that chlorine by-products have been linked to cancer, heart disease, and reproductive disorders and that these by-products generate free radicals which destroy the good bacteria in our bodies.

Studies have also shown that chlorine destroys vitamin E, as well as polyunsaturated fatty acids, each vital to healthy skin, and have linked chlorine to asthma aggravation.
