Many facts support the ineffectiveness of the flu shots. These vaccines increase the infection rates, interfere with the work of the immune system and hinder flu prevention more than anything else. Luckily, nature has a cure for flu that also boosts the immune system and has no side effects unlike the flu vaccines.
The cold virus is more stable in cold temperature and it can survive much longer in cold and dry conditions. So, the human body gets infected by the cold virus mostly in winter.
Moreover, the virus is more easily transmitted during the winter, as the low and cold humidity air dries out the nasal passages. According to researchers, in the winter, even the flu virus has a coating that helps it to spread through the air.
As the body tries to destroy the virus and minimize the damage from it we get the viral illness symptoms. The virus from the nose is ejected with sneezing, from the throat and lungs with coughing, from the intestines with diarrhea and from the stomach through the vomit.
Most people don’t know that the flu virus is in fact rare. The symptoms of the influenza virus are very similar to the symptoms caused by other viruses that trigger the cold. Often, people who are 30 years old or older have cold and not influenza. According to researchers, people at the age of 30 or older will probably face the flu virus 2 times per 10 years until the rest of their lives. The flu virus and the cold virus have similar symptoms but they are different. They mostly appear during the winter season. Most people often mistake the one for the other even though they are pretty different.
There are around 200 viruses that cause illnesses that look like influenza. Therefore, a person can have an illness described as the flu even though that person got a flu shot. According to CDC, 90% of the illnesses that are similar to influenza are not caused by the influenza virus. Only in 10% of the cases the illness is caused by the influenza virus.
Flu vaccines are usually not effective for most of the people who get them. The only way to protect yourself from the flu is eating healthy and boosting your immunity with the medicines given by nature.
Tricks to make your immune system strong and effective against the virus
1. Consume the flu shot from nature
• 8 lemons
• 2 cups of pineapple juice
• 2 tablespoons of honey
• 2 oranges
• 2 tablespoons of ginger (ground)
• 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
• 1 or 2 bulbs of garlic (according to tolerance)
• ½ teaspoon of cayenne pepper
• ½ teaspoon turmeric (ground)
Blend the above mentioned ingredients. Store the remedy in a jar. Consume the remedy when you feel the first symptoms of the illness. Consume 1 cup of the remedy 3 times a day until the symptoms are gone.
2. Move to a warmer climate
This is the best prevention against the cold and flu virus even though it is not an option for most people who live far from the equator.
3. Take vitamin D
Taking the sunshine vitamin will reduce the chances of getting the flu. The FDA, the National Institute of Medicine and the Institute of Medicine, recommend taking from 200 to 600 IU of vitamin D3 per day. However, the proper dose for adults is 5.000 IU per day. Some physicians in the United States and Canada even prescribe 50.000 IU of the vitamin for patients with a lot of chronic diseases.
4. Taking probiotics
Yeast and live bacteria that are good for the health and especially for the digestive tract are called probiotics. High potency Probiotic supplements contain a perfect ratio of live bacteria that help the intestines to remain healthy naturally. Healthy gut flora is very beneficial for the overall health. These kinds of supplements are effective against infectious diarrhea and diarrhea caused by antibiotics.
5. Avoid sucrose
Try to avoid consuming sucrose as much as possible. Sucrose can depress and impair your immune system.
6. Avoid the flu vaccine as well as all the other vaccines
Flu vaccines contain mercury. They can easily compromise the function of the immune system. Even though government campaigns state amazing statistics about the flu vaccines effectiveness against flu, know that this is not true. The chances of a flu vaccine to protect you from the flu in the winter season are less than 4%.
7. Consume herbs that are effective against viruses
Anti-viral herbs are the best stimulants for your immune system. Some of the best anti-viral herbs are black elder, pot marigold and purple coneflower. Other important and effective herbs are: Verbena hastata know as blow vervain herb, Achillea millefolium or yarrow herb, Rosmarinus officinalis – rosemary herb, Melissa officinalis better known as lemon balm herb, Prunella vulgaris or heal-all herb, Hypericium perforatum – St. John’s wort, Origanum vulgare better known as oregano herb and Origanum majorana or marjoram herb. Start consuming these herbs the first time you feel symptoms that can be associated with the cold or flu. Take the herbs from 4 to 6 times a day until the symptoms are completely eliminated.
A detox of your liver will most certainly improve your overall health. According to many healers, detox of the liver is essential, as most illnesses cannot develop in a body where the liver is clean from toxins. Detoxifying your liver is really important, and there are even excellent foods that detoxify both the liver and the entire body.
9. Take immune tonics
The immune tonics are herbs that can improve the function of the immune system. These tonics are deeper acting than the stimulants for the immune system, but they need longer time to work. These herbs are:
Eleutherococcus senticosus or Siberian ginseng root, Panax quinquefolius known as North American ginseng root, Astragalus membranaceus – Chinese milkvetch root, Gandoerma lucidum or lacquered polypore/reishi mushroom and Ganoderma applanatum know as artist’s conk. Mix 2 or 3 of these herbs and consume them 3 to 4 times a day. The treatment should last from 2 to 3 months. The immune tonics cannot be used against an already existing infection. They are used as a prevention and booster of the immune system’s function.
Flavonoids, carotenes and polyphenols like those in berries, green tea, pine bark and green tea are also excellent antioxidant nutrients that can support the function of the immune system. Mushrooms, fruits and vegetables are the best natural sources of nutrients that can improve and protect your immune system.
