We’re fast approaching flu season, which officially runs from November through April. Soon you'll be bombarded with messages from medical professionals, pharmacists, and even school officials telling you that the best way to protect yourself from the flu is to get your annual flu shot. I’ve expressed my views numerous times about the dangers associated with flu vaccines. My view isn’t a popular one to say the least.
In the next few years, we’re going to see a flood of new vaccines hitting the market. They will undoubtedly be accompanied with amazing stories describing vaccines as one of medicine’s greatest success stories. Spreading this propaganda is easier since the pharmaceutical marketing departments have the media’s undivided attention when it comes pushing their agenda.
Pharmaceutical companies are also not oblivious to the fact that one of the hardest selling points for vaccinations is the needle. There's already a flu vaccine that gets delivered as a mist up the nose. And in the next couple of years, expect to see several new ways of delivering vaccines. These will include painless, micro-needle patches you wear for 10 minutes like a Band-aid, inhalation devices, and even genetically engineered edible plants.
Don't be a pharmaceutical company's guinea pig. You can protect yourself from the flu without ever getting a shot in the arm. And if you do get the flu, you can treat it naturally. Start protecting yourself now, before flu season is in full swing, and you'll be way ahead of the game.
Now it's your turn: What do you do to protect yourself from the flu?
