The planet is going through cycles. The current cycle is a Flu Virus running wild through our entire society. Good for the drug companies, bad for the rest of us. The Flu Shots do not actually do any good against these current cycles of bugs because there are much more than one variety of viruses.
The common cold is a virus. It probably has up to 400 varieties out there. No one that I know of has a vaccination for the common cold. Though we do have one for pneumonia. I recommend the pneumonia vaccination. Most of the rest I think are a waste of time and money. Though it might become mandatory to have one soon. Line up and get your shot of mercury compound! Then we wonder why our people out there are going crazy.
The problem as I see it is our natural order of control is all messed up. Nature has a balance set up. I think(just my opinion of course) that bacteria eat viruses. We have as a world severely limited bacteria with antibiotics. So the very thing that keeps viruses in check, has been limited by the drug companies. Viruses change. Each generation of viruses is different. They are literally hundreds of times smaller than bacteria. No antibiotic out there has any effect on viruses. A virus can live outside a host for at least 4 hours. I think it is more like 36 hours but that is personal opinion.
We put multiple antibiotics in all our livestock. This goes on to push these same antibiotics into our food supply. So we are attacked by multiple antibiotics most of the time.
We destroy all the bacteria we can with pasterization. So all the natural inhibitors that might control these nasty little bugs are being eliminated.
Pastor had a critic. That critic maintained that we had to keep a natural pecking order of bugs in our environment in order to survive. Without that pecking order we would get various diseases and die.
The bacteria in your gut has a lot to do with whether or not you get arthritis, allergic reactions, and many other things. So if you do go on antibiotics for any reason, think about replacing that bacteria with fermented foods like yogurt after it is all over with.
I was married once to a registered nurse. When she started as a nurse in the hospitals she tracked every bug known to man into our home. She was sick a lot. So were the rest of us. I was least infected because I had an immune system based both here and from Britain. I was sick a lot as a baby and even into boyhood. It helped me fight the bugs she brought into the home. My immune system was superior to the rest of the family.
Then I tried a simple trick. I put clorox in the dishwater. Later I put it in a dishwasher every time we did dishes. The disease disappeared after that. I found that the eating utensils, glasses, and dishes were passing the diseases on to us. The shoes on our feet did the same thing. Sterilizing on the eating materials took most of the bugs out of the house. I would have thought it was passed in the air. But it was entering our bodies in our food from the silverware and dishes.
Another trick I use to this day is light. Most viruses die when exposed to sunlight. So I put daylight spectrum bulbs throughout the house. This is good for bacteria. They flourish in sunlight. Most viruses also die under ultraviolet light. Most flu bugs arrive with winter. There are too really good reasons this is so. First the kids all mix together in the public schools and create an ideal flu environment. The schools do not use daylight spectrum flourescent bulbs in the classrooms. If they did, half the flu cases would not happen. Sterilizing all the utensils in the Cafeteria and suing bleach to clean the tables would also reduce the risk of infection.
The third trick is copper. Put all copper door knobs in a house. Bugs hate copper. They will not reside on door knobs made of copper.
I recommend that everyone keep natural supplies of Vitamin C in the form of high pulp Orange Juice in the house. Drink at least one or two glasses of Orange Juice a day.
I recommend a good Vitamin D Spray under the tongue at least once a day. A good Vitamin B12 won't hurt either.
You will still be exposed by your kids. No help for it. If you do what I recommend, the occurence will be drastically shortened.
Otherwise, I recommend you buy lots of drug stocks. They are going to have a field year.
