INFLUENZA ALERT 2010

It is flu season time again and we are being cajoled into getting our flu shot at our local pharmacy. But wait and think about what you are about to do.

Most influenza studies have not demonstrated the vaccine to be effective and safe.

80% of all flu like illness reported is not caused by influenza but by other viruses and bacteria.

Out of 308 million Americans, CDC estimates that about 12,000 deaths were associated with influenza in 2009, a pandemic year. These deaths usually involve bacterial pneumonia complications that rarely occur in healthy children and adults.

Influenza viruses constantly evolve and depending upon the year, the flu shot may or may not contain the strains associated with most reported influenza cases.

The 2009 pandemic, H1N1, “Swine Flu” vaccine and the current 2010/2011 seasonal component have generated increased reports of Guillain Barre Syndrome, Bells Palsy, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, convulsions and narcolepsy.

THERE ARE ALTERNATIVES THAT MAY BE SAFER AND MORE EFFECTIVE

If you keep your vitamin D3 level between 50-70ng/ml, which can be achieved by safely taking 5000iu of vitamin D3 a day, you will protect yourself not only against influenza and other infectious diseases but also against cancer, diabetes, heart disease, auto immunity and depression.

Keep a bottle of INTERFERON ALPHA for flu in your refrigerator to be used at first sign of respiratory or flu like symptoms. Rushing a sublingual drop every 10 minutes for 4 doses and every one to two hours will usually turn off the disease. Also have a bottle of the 50,000iu capsules of vitamin D3 available and take approximately 1000iu per pound of body weight each day for 3 days. Vitamin D3 stimulates the production of antimicrobial peptides, your own body’s antiviral and antibacterial factors.
