Flu, along with all disease, is simply a matter of a poor immune system. If you want to learn how to prevent the flu, you need to understand the nature of your immune system and how to keep it healthy, so that IT can keep YOU healthy.
Your immune system is intangible. You can’t see it, touch it, hear it or feel it. You are only aware of it through your health, or lack of health. A healthy immune system will prevent you getting the flu or any other health problem. Or will prevent it from becoming anything other than mild.
Conversely, an unhealthy immune system will not be able to prevent the flu or any other health problem that you are susceptible to, from taking a hold.
It doesn’t matter what the strain is, a healthy immune system will always be able to prevent the flu or to prevent a bad attack of the flu.
Many of the common ‘preventatives’ lower your immune system. For example, all medical drugs lower the immune system. This means that you become more susceptible to the flu, as well as other health problems, after having a flu vaccine.
Apart from this aspect, flu vaccines never target that season’s flu. They are inherently out of date as virus’ mutate far faster than the manufacturers of the vaccines can keep up.
If you are very observant, you will notice a trend; the higher percentage of people vaccinated against the flu, the more people will succumb to the flu that season and the more serious the flu will be. The vulnerable are much more likely to die.
Antibiotics are the common medical solution to treat the flu. But the flu is a virus, not a bacteria. So the antibiotics do little except further depress your immune system.
What are the alternatives? How can you raise your immune system?
First, you need to understand all the ways of lowering your immune system, so that you can avoid these in your pursuit of learning how to prevent the flu.
Medical drugs and vaccines, including over the counter drugs, such as analgaesics, are not only responsible for lowering your immune system, they are also liver toxic, a double whammy.
A typical western diet has so much wrong with it, you will never have a healthy immune system. You may need to drastically change your eating habits before you can ever enjoy a healthy immune system. This is an enormous subject in itself, too long for this article. But you can find all the details in my ebook Healthy Eating For Weight Loss.
Many people are terrified of the sun and avoid it, to their cost. The sun is essential to your health. You cannot substitute the benefits of the sun from pills in a bottle. Get exposure. Just be sensible about it. Don’t overdo it. Gradually build up. Darker skinned people need much more exposure than do fair skinned people.
Fresh air and exercise are essential to keeping your immune system working well. You don’t have to run a marathon. Just get outside regularly. Walking a dog can be pleasurable for you both.
And last but not least, homeopathic treatment, Homeopathy works by raising your immune system, rather than be suppressing the symptoms. The homeopathic treatment of flu can be dramatically fast.
