As I walked through a major grocery chain store a couple of days ago, I passed a sign that said I could save 10% on my groceries if I got a free flu shot… So if my bill was $250, I save $25 and won’t get the flu! Wow, what a deal, these major corporations must really care about my health…. Wait, what!? Every year the CDC (Center for Disease Control) and the pharmaceutical companies embark on an aggressive effort to convince Americans to get their flu shots. There is a push in supermarkets, drug stores, small natural markets and radio commercials everywhere. News outlets post articles about how doctors are urging everyone to get a flu shot because a “deadly flu strain” is going around. Flu shots are a huge business.
Every where I turn there is someone telling me that I need to inject myself or my children with a vaccine so we won’t get the flu. Which flu, by the way, because aren’t there 1000’s of strains of the flu? AND.. doesn’t it seem that when you hear of someone getting the flu shot, they end up with the flu anyway, and they justify it by saying if they hadn’t got the shot, it would have been much worse!
You also have to stop and wonder who is profiting from the flu shot industry? It’s a multi-billion dollar industry so someone is making a LOT of money – and on what? Keeping you healthy so you don’t get the flu?? NO, I’m sorry, but it’s quite the opposite my friends… Do you know what’s in a flu shot these days ? Let’s find out what is in the flu shot that is massed produced around our country.
What’s in the Flu Shot?
While the ORIGINAL concept behind vaccination was a great one, the idea of arming our immune systems with tools to help us stay healthy is a phenomenal humanitarian idea, the sad unfortunate truth is that the modern vaccination industry is not so innocent at all. What scares me is the combination of ingredients in the flu shot and the affects it has on the body when many of the ingredients are toxic.
Vaccines are created in fertilized eggs
The vaccine does not just contain the flu virus, it also has other substances in it that can be highly toxic to the body. Do you know that most of the vaccines are created in fertilized chicken eggs? That means they contain egg protein. I doubt most people are aware of this and what if you suffer from an egg allergy that sounds like it could be dangerous.
Then the vaccine needs a preservative which usually comes in the form of thimerosal, that contains mercury, one of the most harmful substances on Earth for the human body. Thimerosal has been taken out of many vaccines but not the multi dose flu vaccine. Mercury toxicity can cause neurological problems, respiratory problems, cardiovascular diseases, depression, anxiety, ADD and many other serious health concerns.
Then there is formeldyhyede. Among other preservatives in the vaccines is formaldehyde, also a very toxic substance to humans. Formaldehyde is a substance in household products such as glue and paints. Does that sound good for the body?
Also in flu vaccines are stabilizers which keep the potency of the vaccine. These are sucrose, sorbitol, and monosodium glutamate (MSG). Sucrose is sugar, like the stuff you put in your coffee, Sorbitol is an ingredient found in chewing gum and MSG is a flavor enhancer and an additive in many processed foods.
There are also small amounts of antibiotics in flu vaccines that stop bacteria from growing. These are Neomycin, gentamicin, and other antibiotics.
These are a few of the many toxic ingredients in flu vaccines. Here is a list from the CDC website of all of the ingredients. If you don’t know what they are or if they are harmful, look them up, you will probably continued to be surprised that they are happily injecting these substances into millions of Americans.
List of Flu Shot Ingredients:
Common Flu Shot Side Effects
According to the CDC, the flu shot has common side effects.
- Muscle Aches
- Swelling around shot area
Severe allergic reactions are uncommon but possible. When you inject foreign protein molecules directly into the bloodstream you can trigger an allergic reaction as proteins are normally broken down via the digestive system.
- Difficulty breathing
- Hoarseness or wheezing
- Swelling around the eyes or lips
- A fast heartbeat or dizziness
- Guillaine-Barré Syndrome
I never get sick and this is why!
I have never been injected with a flu shot, neither has my husband or children. We believe our own immune systems have everything we need to keep us healthy, as long as we keep it balanced by giving it what it needs. We focus on maintaining a healthy nutritional diet on a daily basis. and we include foods that keep the immune system strong so when a strain of the flu comes along we can fight it off naturally. Read 11 Ways to Boost the Immune System.
I have also developed tonics for us that help boost our immune systems. My hubby and I drink the Master Tonic and our girls drink the Immune Support tonic. The formulations in these tonics support your own immune system by providing extra vitamins, nutrients, antioxidants and substances in a time of need – think of it like special weapons and extra ammunition for your army as they’re being attacked!
Of course, we cannot always keep the flu away and a strong strain of the flu will come along and we will catch it. We treat this time as an opportunity to rest and do nothing, except take care of ourselves and heal. Sometimes a virus needs to come into to help rid our bodes of damaged cells through the symptoms associated with a cold like all the mucous that comes out of your nose and mouth.
Now its more important than ever!
There are some nasty viruses going around right now even one considered a “deadly flu strain.” The most important thing we can do right now is to take care of ourselves, stay active and healthy and build our immune systems. Prevention is key and there are natural way to prevent the flu without a flu shot.
While the pharmaceutical companies, doctors and media are putting a lot of fear into the general population, that is not my intention. My goal is to educate people so they can make the appropriate choice for their bodies. I also want to be clear that we all have different beliefs and I am not trying to persuade anyone to believe in what I do, I am simply spreading information that everyone has a right to know. If you have ever known anyone that has been negatively impacted by a vaccine then you realize the ingredients in vaccines can be very harmful even life threatening. For me the risk isn’t worth it especially since I know that if I eat a nutrition filled diet of organic fruits and vegetables, no processed foods with artificial flavorings or preservatives, low sugar, regular sauna use, exercise and include my immune boosting supplements I WILL NOT GET SICK!
I can’t stress enough the importance of drinking the Master Tonic daily. It is a powerful organic medicine from nature that works as an antibiotic and is also anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic. I swear by this tonic. I have been drinking it for over 10 years now and anyone that knows me can vouch that I never get sick, even when my kids bring home nasty bugs from school! I have also had tons of feedback from customers who have included this in their daily regimes and have seen a huge improvement in their overall health. It has also been reported that the Master Tonic helps to relieve skin issues, eliminate candida, aid in cancer prevention and recovery and help with digestive issues.
This blog isn’t about selling my products to you, it is about letting you in on my secrets to not getting sick and how by incorporating natural health in your life, a flu shot is not necessary. My mission is to help as many people as possible live healthy, all natural lives while learning to be self-sufficient and to trust the intuition that is in all of us. Now more than ever is the time to take your health into your hands and build your immune system to act like a powerful shield protecting your body from any sickness that goes by you.
Stay Happy and Healthy!
