Why Get the Flu Shot?

A wonderful practice member came into Chappell Chiropractic Wellness Center the other day stating she had gotten the flu shot that resulted in a couple of days of severe flu symptoms. Sadly, I often hear this. My intent is to provide the facts so you can make healthy choices.

Repeated research has found that there is little to no evidence that flu vaccines work as a flu prevention strategy. The Cochrane Systemic Review says that there is poor evidence that influenza vaccines work in the elderly. Jefferson and colleagues have published several systematic reviews of existing studies on the efficacy of influenza vaccines. Weighing the data, they conclude that there is insufficient evidence to indicate that flu vaccines reduce infection rates or mortality. And, a different study shows that flu vaccines don’t work in children either (Archives of Pediatrics or Adolescent Medicine).

Why not hear it straight from the source? Here are excerpts from the actual package inserts:

  • Fluzone High-Dose: There have been no controlled clinical studies demonstrating a decrease in influenza disease after vaccination with Fluzone High-Dose.
  • Agriflu: No controlled efficacy trials have been performed to indicate a decrease in influenza disease after vaccination with AGRIFLU.
  • Afluria: There have been no controlled clinical studies demonstrating a decrease in influenza disease after vaccination with AFLURIA.

 

So why would we want to inject a foreign substance into our body that has very questionable efficacy and poses potentially harmful effects? Consider the following: According to Hugh Fudenberg, MD – celebrated immunologist, winner of numerous honors with over 800 papers in peer reviewed journal and noted researcher in Alzheimer’s, “If an individual has had 5 consecutive flu shots … his/her chance of developing Alzheimer’s Disease is 10 times greater than if they had one, two or no shots.”

In addition, adjuvants are added to vaccines to boost production of antibodies but may trigger autoimmune reactions. Some adjuvants are mercury (thimerosal), aluminum and squalene. Remember this the next time you sign a consent form for your children to be injected with mercury, which is even more brain-toxic than lead: Based on the amount of mercury in a standard flu shot, you have to weigh over 265 pounds in order for this exposure to mercury to be safe according to EPA guidelines.

And, why were flu shots taboo years ago for pregnant women and now OK? Mercury and a developing fetal brain don’t match up to me. Why take a chance? Furthermore, researchers are warning that over-use of the flu vaccine and anti-flu drugs can recombine in the human body with other viral agents producing a much more dangerous and virulent strain.

Getting the cold and flu is not the inevitable result of viral exposure alone. It is the result of a viral assault on an impaired immune system’s ability to fight them off. What weakens the immune system’s ability to fight off the bugs? Physical, chemical, and emotional stresses. Therefore, attention to these will help you improve your immune function and resistance helping you ”prevent” the flu (See below). Finally, scientists have shown that the immune and nervous system are intricately related. Make sure you are getting adjusted regularly to free the NS from interference ensuring a strong immune response. Studies have shown that chiropractic adjustments improve immune function by 200%!

    I learned more something totally new on this fat loss issue. Just one issue is a good nutrition is extremely vital whenever dieting. A huge reduction in bad foods, sugary meals, fried foods, sweet foods, red meat, and white flour products may perhaps be necessary. Possessing wastes parasitic organisms, and wastes may prevent goals for losing weight. While certain drugs quickly solve the issue, the horrible side effects are usually not worth it, and they never give more than a temporary solution. It is just a known proven fact that 95% of dietary fads fail. Thanks for sharing your thinking on this website. http://www.hghreleaserreview.com
