How to Prevent Getting the Flu & About the Flu Vaccine

Flu Season Tips and Points to Remember!



  • Flu virus reinvents itself not only season to season, but between vectors! (Person to person). That means it is kind of difficult to make a vaccine for an ever changing bug. By the time the bug is cultured, isolated and manufactured into a vaccine, the bug your vaccine is trying to protect you against has likely dramatically changed.
  • The Flu vaccine is made up of a “best guess” from last year’s virus.
  • The actual manufacturer of the vaccine states “By the time we actually know what the virus is it is too late to do anything about it.”
  • “If an individual had 5 consecutive flu shots between 1970 and 1980 the chances of Alzheimer’s is 10 times greater then getting no shots.”: Hazards of vaccination 2000
  • Adding the flu shot to the mandated schedule increased the number of vaccines a child receives from 40-58 in one fell swoop!
  • The flu shot was originally designed for high risk individuals only, ie. the immunocomprimised and the elderly. Now it is recommended for everyone down to the young age of six months! Just getting onto the mandated schedule resulted in a BILLION dollars to the maker of the vaccine.
  • Note that the flu vaccine still DOES contain mercury in addition to formaldehyde, and ethylene glycol (radiator fluid). Aluminum was used up until 2007 (stockpiles of flu vaccine are still used today with aluminum still in it!)



  • Get plenty of sleep during flu season. Lack of sleep compromises immune functions
  • Drink 3 liters of water a day. This helps flush toxins from your system.
  • Consume a high quality fish oil, rich in Omega 3’s to promote good immune function.
  • Take Vitamin D in higher doses during the winter season (Studies say 2000 mcg)
  • Take extra Vitamin C ~ 2-4 Grams to fight bacterial growth.
  • Take a good Probiotic to promote healthy digestion which in turn boosts immunity
  • Get plenty of exercise to increase healthy circulation and delivery of nutrients and healing factors to your whole system.
  • Have fun! Lots of laughter and healthy relationships are excellent stimulators of a healthy immune system!
