The Swine Flu Epidemic

swine flu epidemic

Lately, some mention of the swine flu epidemic is made almost every day on television, the radio, or in the newspapers.

Does fear of a swine flu outbreak make you nervous and panicky?

Sometimes I think fear mongering is the real intent of certain parties.

You have to admit, the pharmaceutical companies make a killing financially every time they get the opportunity to promote some new vaccine or drug.

What's more scary to me than the actual H1N1 virus is the untested swine flu vaccine that millions of people are being encouraged to line up for without any knowledge of the risk involved.

Sadly, in the hope of preventing themselves from catching the dreaded virus, countless numbers will allow the government to persuade them to go ahead and insert some of the virus into their system, voluntarily.

Is this really the answer to stopping the so-called swine flu epidemic?

Don't get me wrong. I'm not completely opposed to all forms of pharmaceutical drugs. There are rare occasions when these can be helpful to combat particular diseases or viruses.

However, something smells, in my opinion, when you start batting around the word "epidemic" and encouraging the masses to act as guinea pigs for a 'new' vaccine with no knowledge of the consequences.

Let's be honest! Every year thousands of people (reportedly, even tens of thousands) die from "regular flu" viruses. Do we call that an 'epidemic?' As sad as the swine flu deaths are, the numbers are still minimal in comparison. Does this warrant the mass hysteria that seems to be brewing?

I can't tell you, "Don't get the swine flu vaccine!" That's not my responsibility, right, or even desire. As individuals, we each need to intelligently consider the swine flu facts and decide the best course of action for ourselves.

What I CAN tell you is some basic swine flu precautions that you can take to reduce your own risk of contamination. I'm not suggesting some wonder drug, or some miracle "swine flu 2009 cure."

Instead, these common sense tips on building a strong immune system will help you build your own body's defense against not only the h1n1 influenza, but any of the other more common flu viruses that come around each flu season.

How To Prepare For The Swine Flu Epidemic

  1. Cleanse your system annually! I'm increasingly convinced that it's a good idea to give your body an annual cleanse, much like you change the oil regularly in your car. A natural herbal cleanse helps to detoxify the body from a build up toxins and pathogens, giving your body a rest from the accumulation and overload.

    I use Herbal Fiberblend for that purpose, and I also keep it on hand, year round, but particularly during flu season. At the first sign of discomfort, I immediately begin using the HFB to help kill and eliminate any virus, bacteria, or germs I may have picked up along the way.

  2. Keep your friendly bacteria count high! Your body requires good bacteria (also called "friendly flora") to keep your whole system in balance. If you don't have enough good bacteria in your digestive tract, you become extremely vulnerable to whatever virus is currently plaguing your area.

    Probiotics are the friendly bacteria that your body needs. They include Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidum, and Bifidobacterium longum. A practical precautionary measure against the swine flu epidemic is to include a daily probiotic, like Florafood, in your life. You'll love all the additional benefits you receive from the probiotics, too.

  3. Consider antioxidant supplements! Antioxidants are important for maintaining a healthy immune system by fighting off free radicals. As we age, our body produces less and less antioxidants naturally and we need to consider supplementing with good quality antioxidants. I like Proancynol 2000 with its combination of 7 different antioxidant compounds.

  4. Improve your nutritional intake! Good nutrition is still one of the best possible ways to give your body the strong defense and support it needs to maintain good health. Eat as much whole foods as possible in your diet. If you find it difficult to get enough good quality nutrition in your daily diet, consider using whole food supplements like I do. I prefer the Garden Trio as a simple and practical way to get the nutrition my body needs.

I hope you seriously consider these practical and natural solutions to the swine flu epidemic as a serious alternative to the swine flu vaccine. Keeping my resistance high is my preferred method of dealing with the flu virus, regardless of the strain.
