There are a few ways I use to peak my system to fight flu. It is my choice and that of my family’s not to take the flu injection.
My reasons are; I don’t like the ingredients and I’m not convinced of its efficacy.
I am not in anyway anti medicines; I am a registered nurse and I will use medications when they are necessary but in order to choose wisely, I need to be informed.
On the 13th of October this year (2019) I read this;
‘Health officials have admitted a flu jab that has already been dished out to thousands may be targeting the wrong strain of the virus.
Public Health England has announced the trivalent vaccine is not effective against a common type of influenza B which is currently circulating.
An analysis of 25 cases of influenza B revealed 21 of them have been caused by the B/Yamagata type – which isn’t covered by the cheaper jab.
The strain has been responsible for a surge in cases of flu, including the dreaded ‘Aussie flu’ across England and Wales this winter – putting extra pressure on the NHS.’
( MAil on line)
This feeds into my opinion that that however good the guesstimate is, it can’t ever be fool proof. The vaccine is made-up of three different types of flu virus and a different drug is made every year based on the strain’s scientists predict will be circulating, and this prediction can be wrong.
This article is not intended to be a flu jab bashing one rather one to make you think about and perhaps learn a little more about peaking your immune system for flu season.
I prefer to use Polyinfluenzinum which is a a Homeopathic product made by a pharmacy, which contains all the worldwide strains of the flu virus right back from 1975 ptentised to 200K and it is updated annually to include the current virus remedy. So far my use (going on 19 years) it has been successful. I pre-order this every year for my family and some of my clients who choose to as well, I usually ask them when its ordering time but recently put out the call on my Facebook.
This order arrived this week and for those of you who ordered I will contact you.
Another way to peak your system is through Complex n.1 which is a registered medicine in the UK and is known as Guna Flu everywhere else in the world,
Guna Complex n.1 helps to aid our own natural defences. It is a complex homeopathic medicine for children and adults to help the prevention and treatment of influenza and para-influenza. It helps to increase the response of our own natural immune cells. Guna Complex n.1 is now MHRA registered and can be now dispensed without the need for a consultation.
To explain its action, you need to look at the ingredients
Active ingredients & Purposes:
Aconitum napellus 5C_____Fever
Anas barbariae, Hepatis et Cordis extractum 200CK_____Flu-like Symptoms
Asclepias vincetoxicum 5C_____Fever
Cuprum metallicum 3C_____Headache
Echinacea angustifolia 3C_____Immune Support
Influenzinum 9C_____Flu-like Symptoms
The science behind this is available and it is ready easy to use both as a preventative and as treatment if you do succumb to the flu.
Generally the flu vaccine has a 75% efficacy but the viruses are known to drift or mutate so the effectiveness of the flu jab may be less. Also, your immune system may be under power unless you have though of peaking it by eating well and staying fit. This is where Complex n.1 can shine as it will help your immune system.
Combining the flu jab and Complex n.1helps bypass the problem of virus drift
The choice is yours.
You can beat the flu safely.
