Should you get the flu vaccine?
Well ladies, flu season is still here. But really, there is no flu season...there’s your immune system is weakened due to less sunlight (lower vitamin D), change in temp, higher stress etc. If anyone here follows me, you know how I feel about the flu shot. Its success waxes & wanes over the years due to a scientific phenomenon known as antigenic drift and shift. Drift occurs due to small changes (or mutations) in the genes of influenza viruses that can lead to changes in the surface proteins of the virus: HA (hemagglutinin) & NA (neuraminidase). This happens all the time within viruses 🦠 & is the reason it is nearly impossible for scientists to guess which strains will be virulent each year. Antigenic drift is common, but antigenic shift is less common. When shift happens, most people have little or NO immunity against the new virus because it changes big time & quickly. THINK 2009-the H1N1 virus was an example of antigenic drift & lots of peeps got sick. 💉 If the flu shot isn’t a guarantee then is there another, maybe wiser option? I believe so. Listen, if you go get the flu shot, which is full of unhealthy & autoimmune producing fillers & adjuvants these can ADD to lowered immunity. These fillers are deemed necessary however as they are THE reason your body sees the inactivated flu virus as an enemy; it is the inflammation produced by the fillers that sets off the immune response to hopefully produce immunity. BUT THIS IS NOT GUARANTEED!
For now, I recommend:
🔹elderberry-shortens H1N1 duration
🔹Zinc-stops replication of rhinovirus & modulates WBC 🔹vitamin D-it’s actually a hormone used in multiple reactions concerning immunity 🔹Vitamin C-needed in making cortisol, the stress hormone & revs immunity 🔹probiotics 80% of your immunity is in your gut so modulating that is so important 🔹Infrared sauna-activates heat shock proteins & autophagy of old, diseased cells. Activates immunity just like exercise *If you work in a field where it’s “required”, you can be medically exempt.
