It’s that time of year again where doctors, nurses, and pharmacies inject the fear of the flu into your mind so you will drive directly down to your local clinic and willingly let them inject you with the flu. It seems that no matter the season, flu shots are being pushed relentlessly. I find it funny that we never had a “flu season” until we had a flu shot.
Sounds kind of silly when you think about it. By getting the flu shot you have essentially agreed to have a strain of the very virus you are trying to avoid, injected directly into your body.
The Centers of Disease Control even admit that past shots have been as low as 18% effective. If you score 18% on a test, that’s considered an epic failure, but it doesn’t stop the CDC from relentlessly pushing the shot.
Could it be that they stand to make money if you get sick? Well, considering a lot of employees at the CDC hold stock in major pharmaceutical companies makes it suspect at best. But, let’s get back to the point of this article: rational reasons to avoid the flu shot.
Flu shots contain known poisons
Flu shots contain adjuvants that facilitate the development of not just the flu, but several other disease processes.
You are aware that toxins, no matter the amount, are partly responsible for virtually all the diseases experienced today, right? So, if you put your thinking hat on, it makes sense to avoid them at all costs, at least what you can see and know about, right?
If you’re nodding your head yes, I’m glad we are on the same page. Let’s now move on to more stunning evidence on why you should avoid the flu shot, and what you should do instead to protect yourself.
Flu shots are NOT proven to actually work
If you read the indications and usage verbiage on the FLULAVAL vaccine, you’ll find the following admission:
“…there have been no controlled trials adequately demonstrating a decrease in influenza disease after vaccination with FLULAVAL.”
That’s kind of a kick in the pants, isn’t it? Getting injected with a flu virus strain and toxic adjuvants, and there’s no trials actually showing it works? After reading this, submitting yourself to a flu shot (if not forced) is an automatic application for the Darwin Awards.
Flu shots are not proven to be safe
It would be nice to ride the rainbow on a pet unicorn named Bliss and pretend there are no safety issues with the flu shot, but in this case, ignorance and bliss do not go together. By their own admission on the FLUAVAL insert, you can read in black and white:
“Safety and effectiveness of FLULAVAL in pediatric patients have not been established.”
Yup, you read that right, NOT TESTED!!!!!
Furthermore, the insert also goes on to state:
“FLULAVAL has not been evaluated for carcinogenic or mutagenic potential, or for impairment of fertility.”
The flu shot was also proven to be the most dangerous vaccine of all when it was reported in June of 2014, that 70 percent of all vaccine injury cases (55 of 78) were settled for the flu shot, including one death.
Flu shots contain toxic adjuvants, including one of the most toxic substances known to humans on the planet
So, while you are being injected with the flu virus, there are any number of other dangerous toxins accompanying it, notably the most obnoxious toxin the body has ever been commonly forced to deal with — mercury.
This toxin shows up in the ingredients as thimerosol, a mercury derivative, and is added as a preservative. Each dose contains 50 mcg of thimerosol, which is an extremely dangerous level of mercury for the body.
How dangerous? Tests conducted via ICP-MS using a 4-point mercury calibration curve for accuracy, found that there were 51 parts per million of mercury in the FLULAVAL vaccine, which is 25,000 times the maximum contaminant level of inorganic mercury in drinking water set by the EPA.
As a comparison, this is 100 times higher than the highest level of mercury ever tested in contaminated fish.
Also, keep in mind that these vaccines are injected into the body, bypassing several detoxification systems that would be in place when eating fish. This makes the injected toxicity by the flu shot exponentially more dangerous.
If that isn’t punishment enough, each dose also contains residual amounts of ovalbumin, formaldehyde (known neurotoxin), and sodium deoxycholate from the manufacturing process.
Flu shots have toxic side effects
On the FLULAVAL vaccine insert, you can also see a section that lists reports of side effects of actual users. Some of those adverse effects experienced after the flu shot include:
- Eye pain and chest pain
- Dizziness, tremors and losing consciousness (syncope)
- Convulsions and seizures
- Gullain-Barre Syndrome
- Cranial nerve paralysis or limb paralysis
- Swelling of the brain
- Partial facial paralysis
This isn’t even the complete list. Are you really interested in subjecting yourself to something that reports these as side effects? Please say no. There’s a better way.
What works better for building the immune system?
At this point, it should be plenty clear that the flu shot is not as effective, safe, and free of side effects as you may have been led to believe. Unfortunately, many people don’t know how to properly build their immune systems. And unfortunately, the CDC doesn’t always have your back.
So what do you do? Here’s some simple but effective advice.
First of all, in times when the immune system is challenged, it becomes more important to avoid foods and beverages that can put more stress on it. This means largely or entirely avoiding sugar, processed foods, conventional dairy, gluten, soy, and alcohol.
In addition, make sure you are adequately hydrated with pure filtered water, eat plenty of clean produce and herbs (garlic, onion, ginger, cruciferous vegetables, dark leafy greens), and get adequate rest.
For supplementation, you will want to provide extra immune system and liver support with supplements such as: Vitamin C, Turmeric, Elderberry and Maitake & Reishi Mushrooms.
Colloidal silver is also another great supplement to take to help prevent contracting the flu and recovering from the flu should you have the misfortune of getting it.
All the aforementioned supplements can be found online or in your local health-food store.
