A strong immune system is our best defence

We should all be afraid to leave our houses, that is if you believe everything you are hearing on the news. With the constant coverage on the H1N1 flu, it appears to be really blown out of proportion causing many to live in fear.

We should all be afraid to leave our houses, that is if you believe everything you are hearing on the news. With the constant coverage on the H1N1 flu, it appears to be really blown out of proportion causing many to live in fear.

Did you know that one to two in every 1,000 children in North America suffer from autism? Interesting how that has not been declared a pandemic, but when over 5,700 people in the entire world die of the H1N1 virus, it is suddenly a pandemic! More than 350,000 people die of the regular flu each year in North America – so why is this flu so much worse?

Is it the media over dramatizing it, and who is feeding this information to the media?

Who has the most to gain from a massive global vaccination program; the profit for pharmaceutical companies from government bought vaccinations, or the general population trusting that the medical system is going to take care of them and provide a safe vaccination for protection?

There has been limited testing on this vaccine. Are you confident it is safe? Research the ingredients in the H1N1 vaccine before you decide to have it injected into your body.

Along with the live flu viruses you may be receiving some common vaccine ingredients such as heavy metals Thimerosal (mercury) and aluminum, as well as formaldehyde, antibiotics, monkey kidney, aborted fetal tissue, squalene, lead, sulfates and latex to name a few.

Be sure to ask the health-care worker administering the vaccine what the exact ingredients are.

It may contain some or all of the above. Be informed so you can make the best decision for yourself and your family.

Your best defence against any virus or bacteria is a strong immune system.

Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables daily, drink seven to eight glasses of purified water, exercise daily to sweat out toxins, get a minimum of seven hours of sleep, flush your nostrils or dip a Q-tip in a salt water solution to clean the nasal passages daily, (the virus is thought to be received mainly through the nasal cavity), take powerful immune building vitamins such as Vitamin C, beta carotene, Vitamin E, soy protein powder to build healthy cells, and acidophilus for friendly bacteria. Interferon supplementation has been proven to be effective in raising your white blood cell count, so your body has more fighter cells for germ invasion.

Take time to relax with a warm bubble bath, meditation and mini vacations to keep your mind at peace and your body in a relaxed non-stressed state. Enjoy peace of mind with a healthy immune system.
