There is much controversy over the safety and necessity of flu shots. Last year was especially controversial with the media frenzy on the H1N1 flu pandemic. In August, the World Health Organization declared the Swine (H1N1) flu pandemic as passed. Any worries about this pandemic are not necessary, and possibly were never necessary from the start.
I advise you to please investigate the positive and negative sides of receiving a flu vaccination. Personally, I have never had a flu shot and do not recommend them to my patients. However, individuals must decide for themselves.
I have offered the 4-part series on boosting your immune system this month as alternative – or supplementary – ways to help you and your family remain healthy during the cold and flu season!
A final addition to boosting your immune system is remembering to take care of yourself. What does that mean? It means to take time for you: schedule some fun, laugh, take a hot bath, have a massage or a Reiki session. Pamper yourself a little, relax, and remember to enjoy life!
Developing the skill of listening to your body is important so that at the first sign of a cold or flu, you can take immediate action to restore health. Many of my clients – adults and children – take supplements to support their immune systems all winter. This preventative treatment is well worth avoiding illnesses. Schedule an appointment with me today to determine what supplements are good choices for you and to set up your winter maintenance plan.
Please review the entire 4-part series for immune system health, and take action for a healthy winter!!
