How Well Does The Flu Vaccine Work?

beware-of-vaccines

Fall is approaching, which means you are going to start seeing advertisements and hearing recommendations to get your flu shot. This happens every year to help protect people during influenza season, but are flu shots really that effective? Is flu season more of a plot to make the pharmaceutical industry lots of money?

 

Flu shots are created prior to flu season based on what strains the WHO thinks will be the most trouble for people. They are designed to protect people from about three or four strains of A and B viruses, which can lead to headaches, nausea, muscle aches, runny noses, fevers, or coughs. The problem is that the flu virus is unstable. Let’s say you come in contact with a strain of the flu that the vaccine doesn’t cover. You can become ill anyways, despite getting vaccinated.

 

In Children:

If you give six different kids under the age of six a flu shot, the common result is that you may prevent one case of the flu. Research indicates that the benefits of getting vaccinated are unclear for children under two years old. Findings almost indicate that the effectiveness of the vaccination are similar to the placebo effect.

 

In Adults:

When the WHO guesses the correct strains, you need to vaccinate about 33 people in order to prevent one case of illness. In a year when the WHO falsely guesses the virus strains, you need to vaccinate about 100 people in order to prevent one flu case.

 

Increased Threat To At-Risk Patients:

If you already have a weakened or suppressed immune system, flu vaccines may not be beneficial. The vaccine introduces the virus to the body, but an immune system that isn’t functioning at its optimum level may not be able to fight off the virus, ultimately resulting in flu symptoms or increased risk of infection.

 

Possible Mercury Toxicity:

Mercury can cause memory loss, cardiovascular disease, digestive troubles, oral health problems, and respiratory illnesses. The flu vaccine contains mercury. In fact, it exceeds the limit of allowable daily exposure to the heavy metal.

 

Increased Risk of Alzheimer’s:

Because the elderly can have weakened immune systems, the flu shot is heavily marketed to them, in addition to other demographics. Unfortunately, there is strong evidence linking the flu vaccine to an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Receiving flu shots for three to five consecutive years actually increases that risk ten-fold.

 

Would you rather put your health at risk by getting vaccinated, or opt for a natural substance to ward off viruses like vitamin C? Vitamin C is a natural antioxidant that helps to strengthen the immune system, alkalize the body, and fight free radicals. Vitamin C occurs naturally in plant-based foods like kiwis, chiles, guavas, oranges, lemons, grapefruit, bell peppers, Brussels sprouts, or parsley, among many others. Try loading up on vitamin C foods this fall to boost your immune system and keep viruses at bay.

    Q: This question is in regard to my 1 yr. old daughter. This morning she grabbed a boiling hot cup of water down from the kitchen table and now has a 2nd degree burn on her chest. She has a big open wound where the skin came off on her chest. I do not vaccinate my child and the nurses were trying to urge me to give her a tetanus shot which I refused. They mentioned it was a vaccine which was for pertussis as well which I did not really understand. So my question is, what would u recommend I give her to keep infection away? I am taking her to a burn center tomorrow for them to check it and show me how to and how often to dress it. I plan to put silver water on the bandage to help the healing process as well. I plan to do a detox for her soon since they gave her morphine for pain and also she has had a lot of mucus and congestion lately due to her teething. Thank you in advance and thank u for this BEAUTIFUL website I am so blessed to have come across your products, I plan to promote them within my business I have already been directing my clients here (I'm a natural stylist).

    A:

    Make sure you put aloe vera gel on the damaged skin of the child daily. Aloe is very calming and healing. To prevent infection, rub shea butter on the skin daily. Shea is very good for skin healing. Calendula gel (from a health food store) is also very therapeutic. The OZ OIL from Dherbs would be the best healing agent due to the oxygen in it. Alternate between the above oil, gel, and butter. Don't worry too much about the situation. Focus on healing and moving forward. The child will be alright! Peace, Love and Healing!

    Q: Good Day to you. July 07, I was diagnosed with having the auto-immune disease Myasthenia Gravis. Since then I have had several hospital stays, including a surgery to remove my Thymus Gland...(beleif that this was one cause)and taking many medications, one of which suppresses my immune system, the others include steroids which have terrible side effects...etc. My latest hospital stay, I was placed on the vent and intubated, because of the Myasthenia and an infection that my body couldn't fight off (suppressed immune system) that further complicated the MG restricting my respiratory system. That was a truly scary and painful experience. I am only 32 and I have been searching for a more natural approach to eradicating this Dis-Ease of the body which they say there is no cure. My thoughts are, they are not looking for cures...if they did, that would mean the pharmaceutical companies no longer have reason to continue to poison and make dependent on them those whom they make the medications...which eventually cause other problems...meaning they don't make money if cures are found. The continuous pill taking and side effects are causing more problems than the original diagnosis. Please let me know if any of your products are a possible answer to my prayers. I am desperately seeking...in addition to keeping the faith and staying strong in prayer, a more natural approach to dealing with MG and taking care of my body, the temple of which the creator has kept alive in spite of this potentially dangerous ailment. Thank you in advance for your time.

    A:

    You didn't have to have your thymus gland removed. This gland is the seat of the immune system so the doctors removed your natural defense and then gave you toxins which are really exacerbating your situation. I recommend that you perform the FULL BODY DETOX and after performing, take a daily regimen of RAINFOREST TONIC, IMMUNE BOOSTER EXTRACT, KHEMETIAN GOLD, ACTIVATED CHARCOAL and ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD. You can overcome your present health crisis! Just stay strong, focused (on your healing), and POSITIVE! Every problem including with health is an opportunity!!!!!!

    Q: Hi. I am very interested in pursuing your detox (both the full and anti-viral, one after the other as it is recommended) however I am a little bit confused. In the actual product description, it states that all other products available only "manage" viruses such as herpes, meaning that the virus still remains in the body. It states that Dherbs helps to eradicate all viruses. It also states in the Q and A it is guaranteed that one will test negative for herpes after the treatment (if it is followed correctly). However, all the articles on your website talk about changing one's lifestyle etc to help CONTROL the virus and therefore prevent outbreaks and that the anti-viral kit can help in the preventing outbreaks (but again that means the virus will remain in the system). SO....I am wondering what the actual potentials of this product and regimen are. If followed with the raw food diet for 6 weeks (3 weeks on the detox and 3 weeks on the anti-viral) will the herpes virus be completely eradicated from one's system so that medical tests will show negative results OR is this regimen just another way of managing the virus, while having it still remain in the system.

    A:

    The Full Body Cleanse and the Anti-Viral Cleanse can help cleanse and detoxify your entire system to help you heal from Herpes. Every person responds differently to the cleanse, depending on the toxicity of your body.

    Q: Please tell me which products will help my 11 yr old son eliminate or aid in his healing of this horrible disease (Allergic Fungal Sinusitis). He was taking allergy shots once a week for a year. He is allergic to everything...grass, trees; dustmites, soy, wheat, dairy, eggs. He now drinks rice milk and I order food online at ener_g foods such as breads, cookies etc that are made without all the things he is allergic to. I want to boost his immune system to help fight this disease. He is on a strict diet and I would love you input on how to help him.

    A:

    Clearly he's toxic! Clean his body out and the problem will go away. Try CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) . Let him drink warm water and lemon juice (from fresh squeezed lemon) every day. Let him drink herbal tea of Mullein leaf and/or Eucalyptus. When he is bathing, drop in 6-8 drops of essential oil of Eucalyptus per bath and add 1 box of sea salt to every bath. Let him soak for 45 minutes or so. He can heal from this problem!

    Q: Hello, I have the herpes virus that occasionally causes me to get a cold sore about once a year. I eat very healthy i.e. no dairy, fried foods, red meat etc. What do you recommend as a cure for this virus. I don't want to take something that will make the virus continue to stay dormant in my blood stream but something that will completely kill it out of my system so I never have an outbreak again. I'm certain there is a remedy that exists. My belief is that God has created a natural cure for every disease. Can you help, thanks?

    A:

    We have a very potent Anti-Viral Kit & Regimen that can help eradicate herpes from the body (especially if you perform the Full Body Cleanse before or after the Anti-Viral kit) and build the immune system to prevent future outbreaks.

    Also, read our article entitled "Genital Herpes" under "Articles" on our site.

    Q: I am curious about the anti-viral regimen and how exactly it works on viruses. In the product description it states that every other product only "suppresses" the herpes type 1 and 2 virus, therefore having the virus remain hiding in the cells and not providing a cure. If one undergoes the regimen, following the diet etc., will the virus be completely eradicated from one's system? Or again, does this regimen only suppress the virus as well? P.S. IF it does eradicate the virus completely, will it be eliminated after the 20 day period?

    A:

    Herpes can be eradicated after completion of both kits (Full Body Cleanse and Anti Viral Kit) with strict adherence to our dietary regimen. Both cleanses detoxify the blood and the other eliminative channels to help flush viruses, infections, and toxins out of your system.

    Unlike pharmaceutical drugs, our products and cleanses work to heal naturally from the inside-out. This means there are no harmful side effects, and does not mask any symptoms. Holistic healing can eliminate viruses and allow you to live freely and confidently.

    Q: I was wondering if you were familiar with the Rhogam shot. It is basically a blood product shot that is taken when pregnant women are tested to have RH- blood, this would be blood types such as O- and A-..etc. It is said that if you are pregnant by a man who is considered RH+ that the child can have serious issues, or you can have a miscarriage if you dont take the shot. Many women have had miscarriges by not taking the shot. Rhogam is a blood product which can be very dangerous. What are your thoughts on this? I have actually had the shot with my son because of my blood type (so called). He is fine but I want more children and would not want to take this this shot any more.

    A:

    The product being poisonous speaks for itself. Poison doesn't belong in the human body.

    Q: Unfortunately my child did get vaccinated due mostly in part to my ignorance to the law. I must admit the administration wore me down with the threats and medical exam fee that kept stating that their immunization was low. I don't believe the hype!!! I did give them charcoal and Bentonite clay right after the shots. I also took them both off of the meats and dairy completely (as we were transitioning into a raw food diet). They are looking at me long faced now but I believe that they will appreciate it later. :-) What I can take from this experience as a learning lesson and help others that maybe in a similar situation and simply do not know what to do. All the information that you have on your website is amazing (I am a Dherbs junkie). You said it best that knowledge is power and I truly understand that statement now. Thank you for all that you do and just know that your works are appreciated.

    A:

    Did you read our article on â€THE DANGERS OF VACCINATIONS†I have created a NEW vaccine waiver kit that folks will be able to order from Dherbs and give to all administrations. It includes an affidavit of objection, an affidavit to the nurse assuming 100% full responsibility for the inoculation, and a request for chemical ingredient of the vaccine. Have the child perform CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) too (within the next 30 days). Stay strong and move forward more knowledgeable than you were.

    Q: Is it true that they combined the regular flu shot with the H1N1 flu shot? What can I give my son to combat this poison. He will not be admitted into school without it.

    A:

    It very well may be true! I would recommend you give the child our Children's Detox in place of vaccines. A much safer alternative and choice!

    Q: I've come to your website many times in the past few days and I would like to start ordering some products to begin detoxing my body and to rid my system of the herpes simplex virus and any other std that may be lingering within. I was diagnosed with this virus on 12/5, but since then I have been given amoxicillin by the doctor. After doing some research, I bought some Olive Leaf Extract, L-Lysine and Echinacea with goldenseal. I feel a lot better, especially since I began to stop eating certain foods, like cheese, pork, peanuts and chocolate. I've also been maintaining a positive attitude and believing that I will be free of this virus. I am extremely interested in starting a cleansing ritual beginning at the end of the month, but at current, I would just like to begin with a supplement you would recommend to cleanse my blood, my genital and vaginal area. Your recommendations will be deeply appreciated.

    A:

    If I had to recommend one product before your Anti-Viral Kit for you, it would be Dherbs STD-RID formula.

    Q: I am a 29 year old African American female. I would like to tell you my story and get your advice. Before Sept. 28, 2008 I was a healthy fun loving female but after sept. 28th my health has not been the same. I wake up in the morning weak with nausea and headaches. I went to Kaiser and they said I had a virus and I had to let it take its course. I work with kids and it was hard for me to go back to work because 1. I kept getting sick. 2. My boss was mad that I was sick and not able to work. So I went back to Kaiser and then they said I was sick and had a virus with a mix of anxiety(due to my boss going crazy on me). They said I need to rest and stop being anxious, so I can heal.(well the anxiety is gone) Next I started to get sharp pains in my stomach area(which I have had before on and off for the past couple of years but it would only happen like once or twice a year) but I was scared because the pains we're very sharp and happening like two weeks apart. So Kaiser told me to go see a Upper GI Dr. I went to see one and had an endoscopy done and they found a yeast infection in my throat and that also my esophagus was irritated to but my stomach looked fine. So they put me on Prontiox (for the irritated esophagus and Difucan (for the yeast infection). Well as soon as I finished the medication for the yeast infection in my esophagus, I lost my voice and could not talk for 4-5 days and I still have the stomach pains. So the Upper GI dr. told me the sore throat and losing my voice was a side effect to GERD and that is what I may have. So he asked to up the dose of the Prontiox (so now I am taking 80 mg instead of 40 mg a day). But guess what still having stomach pains and my voice still goes in and out and it feels like something is stuck in my throat and now when I eat, I feel food get stuck in my chest like right in the middle of my breast. So what is going on with me...they have done blood work on me from blood count to checking me for STD's (even HIV) and everything came back normal/negative. And they keep saying all my blood work is healthy...So what is going on and what can I take, because I am a natural person and my system is sensitive to a lot of stuff and I don’t like being on these medications. And now the DRs may think I have IBS..Oh boy Help!! And oh yeah I have had very bad cramps when I have my period and take Motrin and I would like to know is there anything I can take that is sensitive to my stomach... HELP

    A:

    Beloved, first perform the FULL BODY DETOX. Next, perform TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE, and lastly, perform the 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. These kits will repair your system!

    Q: I recently went to the hospital and I thought I had the virus in the hospital the nurses were very negative towards me. I was given bad medication and as a result I had all the symptoms of the virus when I left the hospital and I am still testing negative and I feel like they have given me bad meds to try to kill me. I don't look the same every time I drink something that has acid in it, it makes my skin turn red and now when I go out I feel that everyone with the virus know what the hospital has done to me people just laugh knowing that the hospital nurse gave me a HIV cocktail. What can I do? I have been to the doctor numerous times and it seems like every thing I touch has germs and it’s getting inside of my body. I was treated really unfair. Now in the community where I live also.

    A:

    IF THEY DID SLIP YOU A HIV COCKTAIL, HERE'S WHAT I SUGGEST: PERFORM THE FULL BODY DETOX AND DRINK DETOX TEA WHILE DETOXING. YOU SHOULD BE FINE AFTER THIS. FOCUS ON POSITIVE THOUGHTS ONLY. NO NEGATIVE THINKING!

    Q: I have been a heavy smoker for eight years and I recently felt the cigarettes start taking a toll on me. Three weeks ago I started having this irritating throat ache, so I starting skipping a few cigarettes. The more smokes I skipped the more I felt my throat getting better. Shortly after I started back smoking heavily again I experienced bronchitis/pneumonia symptoms. Such as Fevers, Soar and swollen throat, congestion, wet coughs, loss of appetite, and a few other symptoms. I immediately stopped smoking. It’s been 6 days now and my symptoms have decreased, but I am getting these nasty night sweats. I am waking up at least 4 or five times a night drenched in sweat. I feel it could be a number of things causing the night sweats such as nicotine withdrawals, my body's immune system going to work and sweating out toxins, and a number of other reasons. I would like to hear your expert opinion on why you think I am experiencing these sweat episodes, that sometimes happened in the day too. Also I took one capsule of Super Milk Thistle 3 days ago.

    A:

    It's plain and simple: HEALING CRISIS (withdrawal).
