The drug companies, media and government are getting out of hand with the flu scares they are making lately. For example, I’m risking being shut down just writing those words. The supreme court is even getting involved, maybe that body can put a halt to some of the insanity.
Mostly, I want to direct you to a page that gives you real information about the swine flu and what a hoax the drug companies are perpetrating for the sake of money.
Basically, the information behind the scare is full of holes. The current swine flu wasn’t as severe as they thought in the southern hemisphere which just came out of their flu season, why should we expect worse?
It seems, when looked at completely and logically, that this flu is no more dangerous than any other seasonal flu. But, I’ll let Dr. Mercola give you the straight dope in their swine flu update.
Here is are a couple of things that I recommend that you can do to protect yourself from any flu. I do these things most of the time anyway.
First, be sure to take vitamin D. It has been shown to increase the ability of the immune system to prevent the flu. Vitamin D activates the part of the immune system that seeks out and kills pathogens like the flu virus. 400 units a day is plenty, but take more for a few weeks if you are low.
Secondly, go out for at least a short walk every day. Walking moves the lymph which clears out pathogens like the flu. It is really hard if not impossible to get the flu if your lymph system is flowing regularly. It only takes 10 to 15 minutes to clear out the sludge from the day. Alternately, you can do minimal movement exercise which is demonstrated in the video at the link.
A couple of days ago, a friend of mine, a little boy 8 years old, came down with the flu. We don’t know which one it was, but he had a fever of 104.5 at one point. Of course, his mother gave him something to bring that down, but if I had gotten there sooner he wouldn’t have needed it. What I did was open his lymph, and give him Congepelx from Standard Process. It only took a few hours until he wasn’t sleeping all the time, and he got hungry.
The dosage for Congeplex if you have symptoms is six an hour for up to seven hours, or until the symptoms abate. I’ve never seen it fail in about a hundred cases. Then take three twice a day for another couple weeks. For my 8 year old friend who weighs about half what I do, three an hour. The capsules were too big for him, so we put the contents in a little juice. He didn’t think it tasted bad at all.
I haven’t had a flu in years. The last couple of times were after a long flight, and I had Congeplex to knock it out quickly. That, plus a good nights sleep, and I was playing tourist just fine.
Another supplement from Standard Process is Immuplex. It is very similar to Congeplex, but better as a preventative, though Congeplex can be used to prevent illness too. I just bought three bottles of Congeplex to pass around and have available for my friends. You might want to do the same.
I hope you read Dr. Mercola, you won’t be nearly as afraid if you do. He gives a few more preventative suggestions too. All you have to do is be a little proactive and you will avoid the flu all together, or be able to finish with it quickly in most cases.
