Welcome to the Inner Health newsletter from allaboutparasites.com.
Everyone is talking about the Swine Flu, and we are going to join them. Let's first talk about facts you may not know about. Then we'll finish off with some practical common sense.
Is It All Just Hype?
Every time you turn on the news these days you are likely to hear something about the novel H1N1 virus. Fears are mounting, vaccines are being prepared, and big pharmaceutical companies like GlaxoSmithKline are metaphorically rubbing their hands in glee.
Why? They are about to rake in almost $50 Billion for the untested, much anticipated swine flu vaccine. Your government has probably already started preparing YOU to get in line for your injection.
Not me! I'm opposed to most vaccines in the first place on principle. That's a whole different article. But, the sheer audacity of these major players to expect, and maybe even compel, the trusting masses to consent to a shot that is in no way guaranteed to be safe is mind boggling.
Did you know that the pharmaceutical companies were sued for claims totaling $1.3 billion dollars back in the mid-70's during the last swine flu vaccine debacle? It's true.
Not this time. If you or your child suffer any adverse side effects from submitting to this untested flu shot, well, that's just too bad for you. The legislation has already been passed to protect the manufacturers of the vaccines. How nice that they can feel so safe.
Sorry if I sound a bit touchy on this subject, but some days my disgust and frustration levels just go through the roof. Why should we play guinea pig for this unprincipled lot? I refuse to do so.
Not only will the so called swine flu vaccine be putting the h1n1 influenza directly into your system, but the other ingredients in these vaccines are enough to cause you serious harm on their own.
Don't just take my word for it. Do your research before you expose yourself and your little ones to such a dangerous risk.
Yes, the virus is real. So is the hype! Every year tens of thousands of people die from seasonal flu. It's not really because the various flu viruses are so potentially deadly. It's because we as a people are so unprepared.
We over-indulge ourselves in unhealthy lifestyles and fail to take proper care of the amazing body God has given to us. Our immune system is in a weakened condition from poor nutrition, lack of exercise, and a build up of toxic waste from our industrialized age.
Symptoms of Swine Flu
It's no wonder or great surprise when we pick up the latest bug that is making the rounds. Our body isn't prepared to fight off the germs as it is intended and designed to do.
The symptoms of the H1N1 virus are much like any other influenza virus you are familiar with.
- Achy Joints
- Bad Headache
- High Fever Over 100°F.
- Runny Nose
- Sore Throat
- Decrease In Appetite
There are common sense measures that you should take to avoid 'catching' the swine flu bug, just like you would any other virus going around.
- Try to avoid being in the company of those who are sick.
- Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Try to use tissues and through them away immediately after use.
- Wash your hands thoroughly when you've been out and about or possibly come in contact with h1n1 germs. No need to use antibacterial soaps constantly. This is not a healthy practice. A good chemical free soap will do the job.
- Get as much rest as you can. Lack of rest is one of the most overlooked elements needed for a strong immune system.
- Eat a more nutritious diet. Cut out the majority of your sugars and processed foods. These serve to weaken the immune system, making you more vulnerable.
- Boost your immune system with nutritional health supplements. These are the ones I use and recommend...
I do have another little secret weapon that I keep on hand at ALL times - Herbal Fiberblend. The anti-parasitic and anti-fungal herbs make it the perfect little back up plan if I start to feel a little "off." So far, it hasn't let me down.
You don't have to use my specific recommendations, but DO use something to keep your immune system strong enough to maintain good health and ward off any possible symptoms of swine flu.
Don't be intimidated by the propaganda and the misinformation that seems to be intended to bring on desperation and hysteria.
We aren't mindless fools to be led around like puppets on a string. Think through your options and do your own research. Make wise decisions based on common sense and principles of good health. Don't just line up for your "free swine flu shot."
