Yesterday I was at work and harassed by the the infection control nurse to get a flu shot. I simply said, "No thank you" which released a torrent of questions from her! I had a choice to make...I could either kick her in the teeth or say, "Being a nurse, I am well aware of the risks and benefits of a flu shot. I am an adult capable of making such decisions for myself. NO THANK YOU!"
I chose the latter...
Did you know that 60% of doctors refuse to get the flu shot?
And that you can avoid flu shots all together and take vitamin D instead? (a rather lengthy article but FULL of very good and accurate information!)
Each day we all take a whole foods energizer/multivitamin, cod liver oil, probiotics and extra vitamin D twice a week (the mulitvitamin and cod liver contain vit. D). Doug also SWEARS by his apple cider vinegar/honey tonic he drinks 3 times daily! So far just a mild 3 day head cold swept through the family. We have not been ill with anything else since starting this protocol....we'll see what the rest of the season brings!
