In the past we have quoted excerpts from Dr. Mercola’s book “Total Health.” Dr. Mercola is an excellent M.D. who lives right here in Illinois. It is Dr. Mercola’s vision to transform the existing medical paradigm from one addicted to pharmaceuticals, surgeries and other methods that only conceal or remove specific symptoms - with morbid results to our health and economy - to one focused on treating and preventing the underlying causes.
Dr. Mercola is one of the few MD’s who practice medicine in this manner. If you would like to receive Dr. Mercola’s newsletter, please visit his website at: www.mercola.com.
With the flu season rapidly approaching, many are concerned that they may get the flu bug. In lieu of the flu vaccination, researchers have discovered an alternative method to avoiding the flu, thus eliminating the common reliance of vaccines.
As simple as it may sound, regular exercise is the key to staying healthy. Although some may believe that the flu vaccine provides outstanding benefits, it can actually weaken the immune system and make you more predisposed to the illness. This is due to the aluminum and mercury that is put into every shot.
When you exercise you increase the circulation and the blood flow throughout your body. The components of your immune system are also better circulated, which means your immune system has a better chance of finding an illness before it has a chance to spread. In a sense, exercising helps your immune system to be more efficient in weeding out and acting upon viruses and diseases.
Aside from exercising, six other guidelines to avoid the flu include:
• Eat a healthy diet by eliminating sugar
• Get enough rest
• Eat garlic regularly
• Don’t let stress become overwhelming
• Wash your hands
• Take fish oil/cod liver oil regularly
What should you do if you get the flu?
One of the most important and simple things you can do is use hydrogen peroxide in your ears, about a half of a capful in each ear, several times a day is more than likely to abort the flu reaction.
