Healthy Living and Homeopathy to Combat Flu

Feeling a little down under these days? A reoccurrence of the flu is common this time of year. You may be being pressured to get a flu shot each time you step foot inside your local pharmacy or grocery store.

      Before letting someone poke you with a needle, it’s imperative to know what’s in a flu shot, as there are many misconceptions. Many vaccines still contain thimerosol (mercury), and the flu shot is one of them. Unless you specifically ask for a thimerosol free flu shot, you are more than likely getting one that does. However, mercury is not the only ingredient that should give us pause for concern; formaldehyde, polysorbate 80, aluminum and egg proteins are also contained in the flu vaccine.

      As a firm believer in medical freedom, I believe it is our right to have a vaccine or any medical procedure. I would, however, encourage you to do your due diligence and research. A list of vaccine ingredients can be easily obtained by visiting the CDC website.

      In the meantime, what are our choices if we choose not to take a flu shot? Plenty! Least of all is a diet rich in whole foods, plenty of water, cutting back on sugar and alcohol, and, of course, exercise. It’s really that simple. Every year we see an increase in illness in January and February. If we stop and think about this for a minute, we can easily surmise that the holidays play a huge role in this increase—excess sugar, alcohol, added events, family stress, loneliness and grief can create the perfect environment for illness to get a foothold.

      In addition, homeopathy has been successfully treating colds and flus for over 200 years. Homeopathy is a non-toxic, non-addicting form of medicine that helps to stimulate the body’s own natural healing mechanism.
