January, 2015

I sincerely hope you had a wonderful Christmas and had a great start to 2015.  I am already feeling that 2015 is going to be a wonderful year of much movement-- movement in a very positive way!

With the wonderful flu season well underway, I wanted to share this with you this month.  My friend and colleague, Cilla Whatcott, sent the following newsletter for her clientelle just last month.  With her permission, I am passing this on to you as well for our January newsletter.  Every year marketing for the flu-- whether it is the vaccine or the associated antibiotics-- is becoming more and more urgent and, in a way, "fierce" regarding the flu.  I am frankly astounded by the half-truths and ofttimes outright lies which we are being told with more and more fervor.  Please do not be afraid to be skeptical regarding the flu agenda.  On my website, I plan to start sharing more information regarding the flu and other illnesses that are easily treated with homeopathy-- and have also been shown, through years of research, to be preventable through non-toxic homeoprophylaxis.

Also, on my website-- and starting with this newsletter-- you will be able to start finding links for more education.  I do not want you or anyone to make any decisions because I feel strongly about something.  I want to provide educational opportunities so that you can make your own decisions, having looked at all sides, and feel good about this.

Have a wonderful month!  And, as always, please let me know if you would like to get Influenzinum for you and your family or if you have any questions or suggestions or anything.

In health!

Recent influenza has been unbelievably rampant. While we know that 80% of whatlooks like the flu is actually diagnosed as ILI (influenza-like illness) we have also had many confirmed cases of influenza A circulating. So we are seeing both – influenza A and ILI’s.

The CDC has informed us that the chosen flu strain for the vaccine was incorrect this year, so it’s important for you to understand what is occurring…... 

The study cited below shows us that when a flu vaccine is given, specific immunity tothat particular strain is enhanced.  In other words you have an approximate 40-60% chance of having increased protection against that particular flu strain in the vaccine.  Nothing else.

The important word is “specific.” Specific immunity is not general immunity. In fact, the study shows us that general immunity is actually compromised as a result of this increased specific immunity. What this means is that people become moresusceptible to influenza-like illnesses, pink eye, strep, and other viruses not in the flu vaccine! (1) This is a perfect example of skewed immunity.

associated with receipt of inactivated influenza vaccine”

We also know that molecules from the flu vaccine are shed after receiving the vaccine. These molecules recombine in the atmosphere and can be shared with anyone who comes in contact with them. (2)

So while marketing would have you think you need flu vaccines to keep you healthy, quite the opposite is true! General immunity is compromised and you are also moresusceptible to new and improved circulating viruses!

Next year when the marketing starts to ramp up for flu vaccines, please keep this in mind and share some valuable information with others!  Homeopathy is a non-toxic, effective and gentle choice for keeping you healthy.

Best wishes for a healthy holiday season and new year,
