Is The Flu Vaccine Really Necessary?
One of the problems behind the flu vaccine is that we don’t allow ourselves, or that we just don’t have, the time to be sick any more. Very often, we have been brainwashed into having quick remedies that are supposed to be cleverer that nature itself.
Normally, when you fall ill with the flu, you just stay in bed for three days or so, take lots of hot fluids like lemon and honey tea, rest, rest, rest and take it easy. The flu will almost always go away.
However, today we don’t allow ourselves this time off ~ the time to rest. We have to continue to work, continue to do whatever. So a three-day flu is now stretched over many days and such an approach can lead to some dangerous complications.
The flu vaccine is really a very mediocre approach to health, if at all along-term solution. It would be for people who don’t know the dangers of the vaccine, people have usually been brainwashed by advertisements, propaganda, who don’t take control of their own lives.
For conscious people, those who want a better lifestyle, a better quality of life, then the flu vaccine is not meant for them. These people have the intelligence and the personal responsibility to eat well, sleep well, exercise regularly, take good supplementation, reduce stress in their lives and practise good lifestyle management ~ and when they do come down with the flu, they have the common sense to take some time off to rest and let the body repair itself with natural remedies. Such people have built up their immune systems and do not need the flu vaccine.
Having the flu is really not the end of the world. From a holistic point of view, there is a value to acute illnesses; an acute illness with high fever is an opportunity for the body to shed off its toxins.
Children who do not go to pre-school and who aren’t exposed to other children and, therefore, who don’t get colds and flu and runny noses, are more predisposed to chronic illnesses because their immune systems have not been activated and trained.
One of the major problems today is that because of vaccines, many of us did not have childhood illnesses any more, and therefore our immune systems have not been properly trained to work in our favour, which predisposes us to chronic illnesses later on in life.
Back to this question: Is it really necessary to have a flu vaccine? The answer depends on you.
If you take care of your health on a long-term basis, you will have few chances of getting the flu. Taking care of your health means proper and adequate hydration, enough quality sleep, healthy diet, proper. regular exercise, good supplementation and good lifestyle choices.
You take care of your car, your home, your finances, don’t you? So why not your health? Your body is your house and if it’s broken, where will you live? In this case, you really can’t rent another house or camp in your best friend’s house ~ that’s not an option as none is available. Looking after your health is, therefore, an extremely good investment, and the only sensible one.
You really have to weigh the pros and cons as to whether you need a flu vaccine or not.
