School is in and fall weather is creeping in on us and with
that comes our annual flu season. It’s a
touchy subject these days with all of the fear mongering that goes along with
the vaccination protocols. If you do
some research in to the science of the flu vaccine you will soon come to
realize that most of the research is funded by the vaccine companies
themselves. They have a vested interest
in proving that their product works, so how much data do they get rid of to
make the statistics look how they want them?
The advertising is incredible with its fear tactics as well “Don’t miss
work this flu season. Get a flu
shot.” Is the flu shot a guarantee that
you will not get the flu? Flu vaccines
are developed using last year’s strains of the flu, so that isn’t taking into
consideration any new strains that developed.
The opposition to the flu vaccine is equally as fear based
with titles like “Mercury in flu vaccines linked to Autism”. The entire vaccination program uses a number
of different heavy metals as carrier for the vaccines, not just the flu vaccine. There are several side effects publicized,
but does anyone take the time to research the ingredients, side effects, how
long the vaccination has been on the market, if there have been independent, randomized,
double-blinded, placebo controlled studies conducted? Or do we all go with the 100th
monkey effect, where one person has an idea, it is accepted by many and all of
a sudden the masses follow suit and everyone MUST have the flu vaccine?
I encourage each and every person to conduct their own
research and make an educated decision for themselves and their family as to
what the right decision is for them…. To vaccinate or not vaccinate? I believe what it all boils down to is fear,
and how to live with the least amount of fear and be confident in what
decisions you make. If you decide to get
the flu vaccine and are terrified that you are already genetically predisposed
to Alzheimer’s and allowing more heavy metals into your system will manifest the
disease faster or tip the scale so you certainly get the disease… perhaps the
vaccine is not for you! On the other
hand if that decision is going to confine you to your home, eliminate your
social abilities or prevent you from going to work, watching you kids or
grandkids at the rink or going to the grocery store during flu season….perhaps
you might have a better life experience by getting the vaccine!
We need to be our own health advocates and stop allowing
others to dictate how we live our lives.
We are all unique, with different fears and as such we will all have
different ways of keeping ourselves and others healthy. Some of us may choose to exercise our immune
systems more than others, just like some choose to exercise their
cardiovascular systems more than others.
If you get the vaccine, you should be protected from those that don’t
(assuming the vaccines work). If you
don’t get the vaccine, trust that those that do are doing what’s right for
them. Who are we to judge what the right
thing is for someone else? Get in touch
with that inner voice or gut instinct; it will not lead you down the wrong
path. Following someone else’s will.
