What is influenza? It is a contagious respiratory infection which is caused by a virus. It can cause coughing, sneezing, running nose, headache and muscle pain to name a few.
According to Dr. John Leander, the flu may cause the immune system to respond in a similar way as if you have the flu but this is expected because your body is preparing itself so that it is strong enough to create an immune response in the future to fight off the flu.
It can be quite difficult to become immune to influenza because of its many strains. There are three main types and it changes from year to year. According to Natural News,” flu vaccines can’t even guarantee protection, because they may not have the right viral strain for that year’s flu bug.”

What does the CDC have to say?
According to the CDC the effectiveness of the flu can change from year to year and season to season. If that is the case, are doctors chancing it? Are we being used as testers to see whether the vaccine might work?
The CDC has also stated that 36,000 people die every year from the flu, however, their official records shows that only a few hundred people die from it. Think about that one!
According to ‘Think Twice’, more people actually die from “malnutrition and asthma” then they do the flu.
So how do medical professionals know what strains to give?
They travel to places like Asia to determine which flu virus is active. Authorities “assume” that these same viruses will arrive here in America.
What does the vaccine contain?
It contains thimerosal as a preservative (A mercury compound), chicken embryo, antibiotics, egg protein and other questionable ingredients. (Do not get the vaccine if you are allergic to eggs).
According to ‘Think Twice’, fewer children were dying before the vaccine came into play but now the numbers have skyrocketed.
How effective is the flu vaccine?
According to the CDC: “During years when the viruses in the vaccine and circulating viruses are not well matched, it’s possible that no benefit from vaccination may be observed.” “Lesser effects of flu vaccine are often found in studies of young children (e.g., those younger than 2 years of age) and older adults.” In adults under the age of 65, the same study was done and they found that the flu vaccine did not affect hospital stay, time off from work, or death from the influenza and its complications. They also found that it was not very effective in the elderly. It was actually more effective against pneumonia but had no significance against the flu.
Real people with Real testimonies:
These were reported on Thinktwice.com. “My husband had a flu shot in January and experienced swelling in his axilla that night, probably the lymph nodes. After that, he became weak and chilled all the time, with a dry cough. During the next two months, the coughing, weakness and chills persisted, and by the end of the second month he was vomiting. His doctor did several tests until one showed acute kidney failure. He was diagnosed with Goodpastures syndrome. This condition causes an abnormal amount of antibodies in the blood, causing them to attack the kidneys and lungs. The treatment is immune suppressive therapy. Isn’t that ironic. It seems that the flu shot that is supposed to build up immunity caused his to work too hard and didn’t know when to shut down. Needless to say, the doctors refuse to admit that the flu shot caused this. He has been unable to work, gets tired, and is at increased risk of catching a virus due to drug therapy.”
[Flu325] “I have a friend who received a flu vaccine on Monday and by Tuesday she was very sick. After many tests the doctors said it was not a reaction to the flu shot. Their diagnosis was “reactivated mono” — despite the fact that she never had mono. I have heard many people swear that they’ll never get another flu vaccine. Now I understand.”
A moms statement: When my daughter was a year old, I took her to get vaccinated for the flu, two weeks later she got so sick with a high fever of 104; she started vomiting, coughing, had weakness and everything else you could name. She is now four years old, has had no vaccine and is doing just fine. What do I give her then? At the sign of a cold, I give her lemon tea, honey, garlic tea, Vitamin C and D3.
There is little evidence to show that it is beneficial to get the flu vaccine.
This is mind shocking! 67% of all healthcare workers were vaccinated in 2011-2012. This is reported in the ‘New York Times.’ Flu vaccination has rose among doctors, however, at 86% percent, which doesn’t meet the national goal of 90%.
This is something to consider before deciding to get vaccinated.
So how can you protect yourself and your children from the flu?
Many articles suggest that those with Vitamin D deficiency use a vitamin supplement like Vitamin D3 since influenza mainly occurs during the winter when there is less sun. You can also give your child natural medicine, such as Hyland’s Cough syrup.
