This is an extract from a newsletter I receive regularly and I am re-posting it here, as I wholeheartedly endorse their advice!
"I’m not against “mainstream medicine”. But I’m against medicine which simply doesn’t work.
This is why I’m NEVER getting flu shots.
Between 2006 and 2010, the Cochrane Collaboration (which looks at dozens of studies to determine what research actually says about a certain drug, nutrient, vaccine, etc.) has proven without a doubt that flu shots are not very effective.
After looking at 36 different studies, they concluded: “Influenza vaccines have a modest effect in reducing influenza symptoms and working days lost. There is no evidence that they affect complications, such as pneumonia, or transmission.” (1)
They also said that there’s no proof whatsoever that the elderly -- who are a huge target group for the flu shot -- are protected by getting vaccinated:
“The available evidence is of poor quality and provides no guidance regarding the safety, efficacy or effectiveness of influenza vaccines for people aged 65 years or older.”
Ouch. Well, it seems that the most up-to-date scientists and doctors out there know for a fact that vaccination doesn’t work to protect your health against the flu.
So here’s what I do instead to protect myself from the flu, or to heal myself quickly the rare times I ever get sick these days:
The 2nd option is called a “vitamin D protocol”, and should NEVER be used on a regular basis – just when you get sick. (2)
Do not buy 1,000 IU caps to complete the protocol, and try to cram 150 pills in your body every day. Instead, buy some 50,000 IU caps off of Amazon.
Now the question is… will vitamin D really protect you from the flu better than vaccines?
Absolutely. According to a lot of credible studies, that is. One of them performed on children showed that just 1,200 IU per day of vitamin D helped reduce their risk of coming down with the flu by 42%. (3)
This is just one proof that the medical system has a LOT of catching up to do. Their recommendations simply do not match what the real medical breakthroughs are showing us".
