Think twice before taking that FREE flu shot.  It may cost you more than you bargain for.  Australia has just banned the most recent version of the flu vaccine for this winter season due to the fact that a significant number of children have experienced vomiting, seizures and life-threatening fevers. Over-vaccination, like over-antibiotic use, has become common practice in this country and most children now have over 20 vaccines by the age of two!

Researchers are now warning that over-use of flu vaccines, and the drugs used to treat the flu, is causing influenza viruses to mutate into more deadly strains. Carolyn Dean, MD, indicated in one of her blogs last year that the flu shot worked only 7% of the time. The Oct 2009 issue of Archives of Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine also reported that vaccinating young children did NOT reduce flu-related doctor visits or hospitalization during two recent flu seasons. Further, although flu vaccination coverage among the elderly has increased from 15% to 65% since 1980, there was NO REDUCTION in the number of pneumonia or flu-related deaths.

These are reasons enough not to vaccinate, but did you also know that these vaccines contain heavy metals such as mercury and aluminum, as well as formaldehyde and the RNA and DNA of animals?!   In fact, most flu shots contain 25 micrograms of mercury, which is 250 times more than the Environmental Protection Agency considers safe. Dr. Mercola states that “This amount is considered unsafe for anyone weighing less than 550 lbs!” (and we’re giving it to our children)! Other serious side effects of flu vaccines include arthritis and autoimmune disorders including paralysis from Guillain-Barre syndrome.

So what can you do?   The best defense is to support the body’s natural immune defenses. A strong immune system can prevent flu exposure from developing into the illness, or it will help prevent the illness from being severe. There are many natural substances that boost the activity of immune cells.

Stop in and ask us about immune building supplements and dietary changes that can support the body’s natural immune system.  We’re seeing moms whose children have went from taking antibiotics regularly to going months or even years without antibiotics.  My own son who is 15 years old has never had an antibiotic.  You can make a difference in your children’s health  today.
