Why do People opt out of the Flu Shot & What is Virus Shedding?

To start, I will answer the question of "why do people decide NOT to get the FLU shot?" Well, the idea of putting a small amount of a substance in the body to jump start the immune system into fighting off a virus is a FABULOUS idea--if it didn't have the toxins and the actual LIVE virus to go with it! The contaminants in the vaccines cause blood and organ toxicity, while the actual virus in it causes shedding of the virus onto others. Polls and ingredients below are taken from this article: A case against the H1N1 swine flu vaccine,"A poll of doctors for Pulse magazine found that 49% would reject the vaccine with 9% still undecided. A second poll conducted by GP (General Practitioner) magazine reveals that Up to 60% of GPs have severe doubts over the proposed vaccine." Here's what is IN the H1N1 vaccine:

  • "The ACTUAL H1N1 VIRUS MUTATION" which will bi-pass all God-given pathogen fighting mucus-laden mechanisms of the nose and mouth which are naturally designed to be immune responders, and go straight into our blood stream, traveling to organs, muscle tissues, brain, and digestive system. (Leviticus 17:11 For the life of a creature is in the blood) "The human body is a marvelous, mysterious machine and to think we know better than it, is foolish at best and extremely dangerous at worst."
  • "The nutrient solution for the vaccine consists of CANCEROUS CELLS FROM ANIMALS. The vaccine - as Johannes Löwer, president of the Paul Ehrlich Institute, has pointed out - can also cause worse side effects than the actual swine flu virus."
  • FORMALDEHYDE - the preservative used for corpses
  • THIMERSOL - mercury
  • "Oil-based "adjuvant" know as MF-59 which contains two main ingredients of concern- SQUALENE and gp120. It is manufactured by the Chiron Pharmaceutical Company. Immune adjuvants in a number of studies have shown to be a cause of devastating autoimmune disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis and lupus."
  • SQUALENE is a type of oil. "Veteran vaccine risk assessor, Dr. Viera Scheibner, investigated squalene’s use as a vaccine adjuvant: 'Squalene contributed to the cascade of reactions called Gulf War Syndrome. GIs developed arthritis, fibromyalgia, lymphadenopathy, rashes, photosensitive rashes, malar rashes, chronic fatigue, chronic headaches, abnormal body hair loss, non-healing skin lesions, aphthous ulcers, dizziness, weakness, memory loss, seizures, mood changes.....'"

Even if you refuse the vaccine, you can get the virus via thousands of shot-infected people who are unknowingly shedding off live attenuated viruses that swine flu vaccines contain. This past week, as many citizens in our city were rolling up their sleeves for the vaccine, our family came down with a suspicious bout of muscle/headaches, disrupted digestive systems, and increased temps......2 days after visiting a grocery store where they had a line of flu vaccines going on. After taking a dose of our INFLUENZA FLU homeopathic remedy, all suspicious symptoms slowly withered away overnight. Hhhhmmm......

Now that we know WHY many people would refuse the H1N1 shot, let's look at things we should do if we are required to get it, or are infected by those who have taken the shot from this article: Urgent: What to Do If You Cannot Avoid Flu Shots or are Exposed to Virus Shedding (Please read the article in its entirety for further info). Here are a few tips from the article that Dr. Russell Blaylock, retired neurosurgeon and author shares, followed by the tips I have found to be effective :

  • "Starting now(as shots are starting), boost your vitamin D3 intake (if you have had electrical damage in the past, you'll want to take Vitamin A & D together!) ....supplementing at least 5000 IU's per day for adults and 2000 IU's per day for children. More won't hurt.Vitamin D3 is an immune regulator. That means it not only boosts your immune system to help you fight off any flu, it dampens an overactive immune system and protects you from a cytokine storm. Avoid common drugstore vitamin D or D2. "
  • "If you do get jabbed, Blaylock recommends you increase your Vitamin D3 dosage to as high as 20,000 IU's per day and 5,000 IU's for children for a couple of weeks, then cutting that in half for several days. Vitamin D3 is not a vitamin, but is actually a neural hormone explained Dr. Blaylock. He advises using a calcium supplement to increase Vitamin D3's efficiency. "
  • "It may be wise to use individual vitamins and minerals (for increased potency). Dr. Blaylock recommended everyone start taking a good multi mineral/vitamin that does not contain iron or copper but is high in selenium and zinc. Zinc deficiency was found to be high among young children who had serious vaccination consequences. Selenium is an excellent anti-viral as well as anti-inflammatory. There is evidence that toxicity from taking selenium with doses above 200 mcgs is bogus. Twice as much is recommended by that information source. In Japan, the average daily intake of selenium is 500 mcgs. And they have a lower cancer rate than the United States. The B complex is important, as are the selenium and zinc. High doses of buffered vitamin C, 1000 mgs four times a day, is what Blaylock recommends if you get stuck or sprayed. There is high anti-inflammatory activity with Vitamin C as well as anti viral potential."

Things that I, Ms. Salubrious, have found to be effective through the knowledge of my Natural Health Practitioners:

  • If the shot was injected, use the Electro-Magnetic Conduction (EMC) method explained here: EMC or 'RODDING' information, to Neutralize harmful substances in the body. This idea/practice closely ties in with how Lightening works--a matter of physics.
  • If the shot was injected or if you come down with symptoms of H1N1 or swine flu from shedding: take a dose of the H1N1 Homepathic Remedy if you can find a homeopathic consultant who is able to make remedies available for purchasing. If symptoms improve, but do not fully go away, take one more dose. In the case of not being able to find a practitioner who is able to make them, you can contact me for more information or else use the INFLUENZINUM remedy, available for purchasing at: Information on how to take them is included.
  • Other remedies that can lessen symptoms, shall you exhibit some: OSCILLO COCCINUM (take 10-15 pellets for each dose, only taking doses shall symptoms GREATLY and NOTABLY worsen) and GRIPPE HP from Energique. Both of these should be available at natural health stores in your area.

So, in reference to my earlier comment of: "The idea of putting a small amount of a substance in the body to jump start the immune system into fighting off a virus is a fabulous idea!" I was referring to how the homeopathic flu remedies use absolutely no toxic ingredients, but combat the flu SUCCESSFULLY, CHEAPLY and NATURALLY. We take the HOMEOPATHIC version of the flu shot in our INFLUENZIUM HOMEOPATHIC once a month from October to April, along with a daily dose of Vitamin D3, as our "FLU SHOT", and we didn't get the FLU all winter last winter--something which is a first for me after years of taking Flu Shots! Another BLOG posting of mine on how to fight off the FLU: VITAMIN D in FIGHTING the FLU.

Thanks for reading, may the Lord bless you in your pathway towards natural health!

The Skin.......The Absorber!

Most people unknowingly underestimate how permeable our skin is! Did you know that you can wear any supplement against your skin or in a breathable material to gradually absorb the nutrients out of it? Any nutrient works as a medicine patch does, being absorbed through skin and entering the blood stream for the body to utilize. I learned this from our Master Herbalist, but "rediscovered" it accidently on my own when I was pregnant and very sensitive to things.

Here's the story: My husband was supposed to swallow a highly concentrated dose of 12 Vitamin C tablets for his health regimine in flushing out yeast from his body....but had forgotten them at home! So, I took all 12 Vitamin C tablets to town in my pocket to meet up with him on his work route. As I was driving, I got dizzy and nauseated, broke out in a sweat and had a continuous nose-run that I had to hold a kleenex up to my nose in order to keep it under wraps! After my husband and I figured out what was going on, we realized that the highly concentrated dose was so concentrated that it was "detoxing" me on my drive to town! After a while of having them OUT of my pocket, I returned to my normal self. May sound odd and may leave you in disbelief.....but try it out sometime.......being able to wear vitamins and herbs works great for babies and elderly that cannot swallow capsules and tablets.

The following resource was graciously given to me by a new BLOG reader (thanks again!), and everything below is found in this resource:

"The skin is the largest organ in the body with the capability to absorb everything. The same ingredients that we use to clean and lubricate our cars, sinks and driveways should not be the same ingredients we smear on our bodies and take into our mouth. The following are 12 common toxic ingredients we should avoid at all costs:

1. Propylene Glycol (PG) and Butylene Glycol: Found in antifreeze. Acts as a “surfactant” (wetting agent and solvent). Penetrates skin and weakens protein and cellular structure. Strong enough to remove barnacles from boats. The EPA considers PG so toxic that workers are required to wear protective clothing and to dispose of PG by burying it in the ground.

2. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) & Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES). Detergents that pose serious health threats. Used in garage floor cleaners and engine degreasers – and in 90% of personal care products that foam. Animals exposed to SLS experience eye damage, depression, labored breathing, diarrhea, severe skin irritation, and even death. Your body may retain the SLS for up to five days and maintain residual levels in the heart, liver, lungs, and brain.

3. DEA (diethanolamine), MEA (monoethanolaniine) & TEA (triethanolamine): Hormone disrupting chemicals that can form cancer-causing nitrates. Restricted in Europe due to carcinogenic effects, yet they are still used in the USA. Americans may be exposed 10-20 times per day with shampoos, shaving creams and bubble baths. Dr. Samuel Epstein, Professor of Environmental Health at the University of Illinois, says that repeated applications of DEA-based detergents result in a major increase in liver and kidney cancer. The PDA’s John Baily says: “The risk is significantly increased for children.”

4. Sodium Hydroxide: The most recent addition to our personal care products. Found in crystal drain cleaners. Drano is 100% sodium hydroxide. This is a poison (caustic lye), yet a primary ingredient in adult and children’s toothpaste and cleansers.

5. Triclosan: Synthetic “anti-bacterial” with a chemical structure similar to Agent Orange. The EPA registers it as a pesticide, giving it highest scores as a risk to human health and the environment. It can change genetic material, decrease fertility and sexual function, and foster birth defects. Tufts University School of Medicine says triclosan can force the emergence of “super bugs” that we cannot kill. Its widespread use in antibacterial cleansers, toothpastes and household products may have nightmarish implications on future generations.

6. DMDM & Urea (Imidazolidinyl): Two of many preservatives that often release formaldehyde which cause joint pain, skin reactions, allergies, depression, headaches, chest pains, ear infections, chronic fatigue, dizziness, and loss of sleep. Exposure also irritates the respiratory system; triggers heart palpitations or asthma, and aggravates coughs and colds. Other side effects include weakening the immune system and cancer.

7. Polyethylene Glycol (PEG): Carcinogenic petroleum ingredient that reduces the skin's natural moisture. Increases the appearance of aging and leaves you vulnerable to bacteria. Used in spray-on oven cleaners and cleansers to dissolve oil and grease.

8. Parabens… any parabens: Look for anything with the word paraben in it. Used primarily as a preservative. It’s a strong hormone disrupting chemical. Has direct links to breast cancer and heart problems.

9. Alcohol, Isopropyl (SD-40): Drying, irritating solvent that strips skin's moisture and immune barrier, making you vulnerable to bacteria and viruses. Made from a petroleum derivative found in shellac and antifreeze as well as personal care products. Promotes brown spots and premature aging. A Consumer's Dictionary of Cosmetic Ingredients says it may cause headaches, flushing, dizziness, mental depression, nausea, vomiting, and coma.

10. Mineral Oil: Petroleum by-product that coats the skin like plastic wrap, clogging the pores. Interferes with skin's ability to eliminate toxins, promoting acne and other disorders. Slows down skin function and cell development, resulting in premature aging. Baby oil is 100% mineral oil!

11. FD&C Color Pigments: Synthetic colors from coal tar that deposits toxins onto the skin, causing skin irritation. Absorption of certain colors can cause depletion of oxygen in the body and death. Animal studies have shown almost all of them to be carcinogenic.

12. Fragrances: Too bad so many feel a need to leave a lingering odor behind. Fragrances may contain up to 4000 ingredients (including different animal urines for strength), many of them toxic or carcinogenic. Fragrances affect the nervous system, cause depression, hyper activity, irritability, inability to cope and other behavioral changes. "

I am reminded of the Bible verse: "He (the Lord) punishes the children and their children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation." Exodus 34:7 ). If we are not treating our bodies as a holy temple: (1 Corinthians 6:19 Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own) and if we are pelting cancer causing agents of chemicals at it through our foods, drinks, cosmetics, fabric softeners, yard sprays, house cleansers, shower soaps, gels and conditioners, then how can we expect our bodies to remain in an optimum condition to serve? Chemicals WILL NOT GET FLUSHED OUT OF THE BODY if the body does not have the extensive support system to do this! They can remain in our organs, muscle tissues and bones for months, years or even a lifetime.....thus leading to problems passed down to our children through "genetics" as un-expected genes, or causing cancer after months/years of dormancy.

In Christ, Ms. Salubrious

LIMITED TIME FREE ITEM OPPORTUNITY at the bottom of the page--so keep reading........The company I do most of our family's ordering from, Natures Sunshine, has a new children's product line out called SUNSHINE HEROS! Sunshine Heros soft-chew products include the "fruit snack texture and bite" of a commercial gummi multivitamin, but with the potent-packed nutrients of a wholefoods vitamin, and without the sugar, chemical coloring and preservatives! Why pay extra money to get a vitamin when there are "perfectly good" vitamins available at cheaper prices on my grocery store shelves? HERE'S YOUR ANSWER:

Itemized below are a few of the non-nutrient ingredients (I would even go so far as to label the "ANTI-NUTRIENTS since they rob the body of valuable nutrients in the process of digestion!)listed on a leading "stone-age family"cartoon vitamin gummi; here's the link for you to see for yourself: COMMERCIAL VITAMIN
  • Artificial Flavors (chemically derived, harmful on neurological systems)
  • Aspartame (chemical sweetner; recent research showed a clear link between this substance & cancer)
  • FD&C Yellow #6 (contributes to abnormal cell growth & weakness of the liver)
  • FD&C Red #40 (increase hyperactivity, anger, rage, & irritability)
  • Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil (contributes to High cholesterol, obesity & heart disease)

Here are a few of the non-nutrient ingredients listed on a comparable Natures Sunshine HEROS Vitamin, and here's the link: NS HEROS SOFT CHEW

  • Natural flavors
  • Organic evaporated cane juice
  • NATURAL Colors from--black carrot juice concentrate, purple berry concentrate, annatto
  • Organic sunflower oil

IN ADDITION to the healthier ingredients than the commercial vitamins , NS HEROS vitamins also includes these WHOLE FOODS for additional immune-potency:

  • Mangosteen fruit
  • Cranberry fruit
  • Broccoli flower
  • Spinach leaves and stems
  • Asparagus stems
  • Carrot root
  • Tomato fruit
  • Acai fruit
  • Pomegranate fruit extract
  • Fruit Juice Concentrates: White Grape, Apple, Pear, Orange, Pineapple, Cherry, Strawberry, Blueberry.

A GREAT vitamin for kiddos, with all natural ingredients, so they're not having to strain their immune system by digesting chemical colorings & flavorings and hydrogenated oils just to get nutrients out of the vitamin they are given! This tasty vitamin provides 100% of the Recommended Daily Allowance for vitamins A, C, D3, E, B6, B12, folic acid, biotin, pantothenic acid and zinc.

Modern diets often lack sufficient amounts of fruits, vegetables and other whole foods, making them low in essential nutrients and antioxidants needed for optimal health. The National Cancer Institute recommends eating at least 5 to 9 servings of fruits and vegetables per day. One serving of Sunshine Heroes Whole Foods Antioxidant offers the antioxidant power equivalent to two average servings of fruit or vegetables plus vitamin A, vitamin E and vitamin C for extra antioxidant protection and nutritional support. (BTW,when they give serving recommendations for food meals, they refer to RAW veggies and fruits as a serving; for cooked ones, there's even less of a serving for the diet!)

Each serving of Sunshine Heroes Calcium Plus D3 provides 300 mg of calcium, equivalent to an 8-ounce serving of milk. It also provides 140 mg of phosphorus, which works closely with calcium in the body to build strong bones and teeth.
It also Provides 75% of the American Academy of Pediatrics new vitamin D3 guidelines. Vitamin D3 has proven to be the most potent form of vitamin D in all primate species, including humans.

Take this for nicer skin, increased brain functioning and overall good health. DHA and EPA are essential fatty acids found almost exclusively in fish that live in deep, cold water. These fatty acids are key building blocks in every body cell.
Each serving of Sunshine Heroes Omega 3 with DHA provides 100 mg DHA and 20 mg EPA from fish oil. Helps enhance brain growth and development while also supporting the eyes and central nervous system.

This type of vitamin is the first one we started our girls out on, to build their immune system after being sick every week with colds, allergies and respiratory infections. Studies have shown that children age 1 to 6 years old who attended day care centers and were given milk containing Lactobacillus rhamnosus missed fewer days of day care than children not receiving the probiotic. Studies have also shown that a healthy intestinal bacterial colonization may reduce the risk of food allergies in infants. This product Aids digestion & intestinal function while Strengthening immune system response.

So, you want to know how to combat influenza/flu naturally? Vitamin D is definitely the place to start. Vitamin D doesn't necessarily make the immune system STRONGER, it makes it SMARTER. We will go into a few nutrients/habits at the bottom of the posting that build up the immune system, but for now we'll cover Vitamin D, and the role that God gave it in combating viruses. God designed our bodies to fight off infections and viruses, without the necessity of human interventions. He gave our bodies self-regulators called "antimicrobial Peptides"..... naturally occurring antibiotics, which are "upregulated" and increased by naturally occurring Vitamin D sources. Naturally occurring Vitamin D upregulates antimicrobial peptide output, and dampens the immune system branch that causes excess inflammation, leading to infections and health problems. (discovered by Professor John White, McGill University) Vitamin D may not be the "cure" for influenza, but it is the MAJOR WEAPON that God gave us to fight off influenza and the common cold.

The following information is taken from Adelle Davis's book, Let's have Healthy Children, page 193: When Vitamin D is increases the absorption, retention, and utilization of magnesium, as well as calcium, and throughout life it decreases the loss of both minerals in the urine and feces. Without Vitamin D, rickets, a bone disease, is produced by the time a baby is 3-6 months old" It is well-known among TRADITIONAL MEDICINE practice, that kids with rickets get a lot of infections.....Traditional doctors diagnose the cause as beings that their rib cage is too soft to function properly. BUT....among NATURAL is known that a lack of Vitamin D causes the rib cage to be soft because of the inability to absorb enough calcium due to the lack of vitamin D present in the body system.

This just PROVES that that it is important to separate FACT from THEORY.

FACT: Vitamin D is needed to absorb calcium, which is needed to have a properly functioning rib cage.

THEORY: infections are caused by a soft rib cage

Vitamin D levels in people during the wintertime typically fall to 1/3 of the levels found in the summer times. What is the significance? Well, typically people are sicker during the wintertime, and typically we don't have near the direct sun rays that we do in the summertime.....and God designed the sun to be our major source of Vitamin D. (click here to view my BLOG POSTING on Vitamin D) So, in order to bring our bodies up to the optimum virus-fighting potential that God gave to us, we need to bring our Vitamin D levels up the optimum levels God gave to us. If you do not have access to direct sunlight (NO SUNSCREEN!!), then the next best resource would be Vitamin D3.....our family takes this brand, for quality assurance: NATURES SUNSHINE VITAMIN D3.(<----click on link) Several different natural health sources mention that adults should have anywhere between 4,000 to 6,000 I.U. (international units) of a naturally occurring (not synthetic) High Quality Vitamin D source, while children should have half of this. The synthetic form of vitamin Dadded to commercial milk and foods does not substitute,and actually does the body MORE HARMthan GOOD. You can have a little better insight into yours/your child's SPECIFIC NEED of Vitamin D by muscle testing/having a Master Herbalist muscle test for you. If you assume an amount, it may be below yours/your child's need.

If you are looking to strengthen the immune system, in addition to increasing the output-functioning of it with Vitamin D......we do these things AS WELL as take Vitamin D, as a precautionary measure against the FLU and COLDS.

  • Avoid all processed sugar and flour (which turns to sugar shortly after consumption) which LOWERS the IMMUNE system anywhere between 24 hours-2 days....however long it is in the intestinal tract for. (SUGAR BLOG POSTING)
  • Avoid processed/fast foods which lower the immune system as well
  • Protect yourself from Electoro Magnetic Radiation from cell phones, computers and electricity (BLOG POSTING ON EMF's)
  • Take BIFIDOLOPHUS, to increase the good flora in your intestine to combat the virus/bacteria that invade.
  • Take an INFLUENZA REMEDY every month from October to May--it's a flu shot in the natural version of a homeopathic remedy, with the most original form of FLU strain that there is.
