4 Steps to prevent the Flu
The most important step is to see a Chiropractor. To fully understand why, it’s important to understand that it’s not germs that make you sick; it’s the body’s inability to recognize and process them that does. Chiropractic Care ensures that your system communicates properly. It has been scientifically proven to boost the immune system and raise the body’s natural resistance so you can process germs more efficiently, minimizing the response.
During the 1918 influenza epidemic, Davenport, Iowa, medical doctors treated 4,953 influenza cases with 274 deaths. At the same time, 150 chiropractors, students and faculty of Palmer School of Chiropractic treated 1,635 cases during the influenza epidemic with only one death.
Seeing a Chiropractor regularly will make the next 3 steps even more efficient.
The next step is avoiding the Flu shot. Dr. J. Anthony Morris, former Chief Vaccine Control Officer at the FDA, was quoted saying “There is no evidence that any influenza vaccine, thus far developed, is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza.” Plus vaccines are filled with toxins and heavy metals that the body has to process which can weaken your system and the blood/brain barrier causing major systemic dysfunction.
Exercise, Exercise, Exercise! Getting 30-65 mins a day is a great way to boost the immune system helping fight out pesky illnesses. Even getting out for a long walk is beneficial. Although it’s also been found that exercising for more than 90mins a day can actually begin to have the opposite effect.
Eating healthy and supplementing with the quality triple GMP Certified vitamins, like ours to support the body’s natural capabilities. Make sure to eat more leafy greens and fruits on a daily basis, while avoiding inflammatory foods like red meat and alcohols. For supplements some of the most effective are Vitamins A, C, E and B6, as well as Zinc, selenium, iron and copper. Also increasing your anti-oxidant intake will help keep the body strong; blueberries, pomegranate and Acai are great sources.
Each one of these steps will help when done alone, but all together, they will give you a tremendous advantage to help fight off the flu.
