Why You Should Ditch the Flu Shot and Do This Instead


As the flu season approaches, we become witnesses of a powerful propaganda that flu vaccines are crucial for us in order to preserve good health. This psychological attack leaves many people wondering whether common flu is the deadliest disease in the world and whether there is no other alternative than getting this shot. Unfortunately, these vaccines are not as benign as they are proclaimed to be.  For one thing, they generally prove ineffective and even harmful, both for people and animals.

The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention states that “the following substances are found in flu vaccines: aluminum, antibiotics, egg protein, formaldehyde, human aborted fetal apparatus (dead human tissue), monosodium glutamate (MSG), and thimerosol (mercury).” Moreover, studies have found that these vaccines lead to long-term health consequences. Peter Doshi, PhD published a report in the British Medical Journal (BMJ online) in 2005, which shed light on CDC’s claim that 36,000 died from the flu each year. Following a detailed investigation, Doshi found that “between 1979 and 2001, [CDC] data show an average of 1348 [flu] deaths per year (range 257 to 3006).”

Why You Should Ditch the Flu Shot and Do This Instead

The root cause was not an actual ‘flu season’, but rather to patients’ weakened immune systems. This leads to a conclusion that a strong immune system is the best defence against common flu.

Cod liver oil

This super food ranks highest on the list because it’s abundant in fat-soluble vitamins which promote a healthy immune system, along with fatty acids like EPA and DHA, which fight against inflammation. EPA is the precursor of important prostaglandins which are localized tissue hormones stimulating the body to fight inflammation. And, cod liver oil has higher content of vitamin A and vitamin D per unit weight than any other food. For a comparison, one teaspoon of high-vitamin oil packs nearly 2000 IU and treatments based on this oil have proved highly effective for nearly all infections.


Thyme has a number of health benefits including its ability to destroy bacteria as well as to cleanse your body of toxins. This herb packs strong antiviral, bactericidal, fungicidal, antibiotic, and antiseptic properties, which makes it a powerful tool against flu and colds. Moreover, it stimulates the formation of white blood cells, thus strengthening your immune system and increasing the immune response to microbes.


This spice should be your no.1 food and tea additive. You can successfully address colds, cough and flu making use of turmeric’s anti-bacterial agents.  Curcumin, turmeric’s active ingredient, has powerful anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties beneficial for treatment of cuts and wounds.

Honey and Cinnamon

As honey is highly beneficial for white blood corpuscles, regular consumption can successfully prevent bacterial and viral infections. In order to treat chronic cough, cold and clear the sinuses, simply take one tablespoon of honey with 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder every day for 3 days. The results will amaze you!
