Drugstores and Walmarts are promoting walk-in flu shots for the “flu season.” The late and early months of each year seem to be when more of us catch colds and come down with the flu.
So what measures can you take to ensure you are not sidelined with nagging colds or a debilitating flu episode?
Boosting your immunity is important for coping with the cold and flu season. Getting flu shots, recently proven as not even effective, is not one of them. All vaccines depress the immune system and can cause lifelong neurological damage and autoimmune diseases.
Let’s also debunk the concept of “flu season.” Influenza viruses don’t approach in the winter then leave like migrating birds every spring. Influenza microbes simply aren’t seasonal. They’re probably hanging around most of the time waiting for your immune system to get a little weaker.
Most of us know by now that vitamin D3 is necessary to fight off pathogens and protect against inflammation and even cancer. This has become the health movement’s immunity staple, and it’s confirmed by many MDs, holistic practitioners, and researchers. The natural source of D3 is the interaction of the UVB rays of the sun and your skin.
The northern hemisphere of the Earth tilts away from the sun in late fall and winter. Add the shorter days’ decreased sunshine energy to remaining indoors and dressing to stay warm, and you’ve cut yourself off from the sun. Immune systems are weakened during the winter periods because of vitamin D3 deficiencies. Voila! That’s the flu season!
If you live in a year round warm, sunny area, you’ll need to make sure you get plenty of direct sunlight to skin exposure. Direct sunlight means no glass between you and the sun. Glass filters out beneficial UVB rays for vitamin D3 and lets potentially harmful UVA rays come through.
If your regional climate inhibits sun exposure, take Vitamin D3 supplements. You can check your vitamin D3 blood levels, but many experts recommend five to ten thousand international units (iu) daily in lieu of adequate sunshine exposure.
The Other 8 Measures for Preventing and Curing the Flu
Elderberry for Cures – Elderberry extracts or syrups have been clinically proven to help get over colds and flu better than Tamiflu. It’s not a drug. So it’s cheaper and without the serious side effects that have been reported for Tamiflu. It may be too late now to make your own elderberry tincture. So by one off the shelf and make a tincture for later and save money. It takes a month for tinctures to “season.”
