Flu Shot vs Flu Adjustments
The flu shot vs the flu adjustment! Such dilemmas we face in our society! Let us begin! 80% of flu-like symptoms are not the actual flu, Barbra Lowe Fisher National Vaccine Information Center. There is no single virus that causes the flu. The flu / influenza is a group of symptoms used to describe an illness that is caused by many viruses. Viruses change or mutate everyday to survive detection and destruction by our immune cells. There are over 900 strands of the flu and growing. The shot given to us consists of 3 or 4 of those strands….what about the other ones? Most of the flu victims each year are precisely the same people who took the flu shot. Using the industry’s best evidence, flu vaccines are no more than one percent effective at actually preventing the flu– and that’s only during the first few months before they “fade out”. The effectiveness of annual flu shots has been exaggerated; they have little or no effect on many influenza campaign objectives, including reducing the number of hospital stays, time off work, and death from influenza and its complications, British Medical Journal, Oct. 28, 2006.
Okay! Let us talk about flu adjustments now! What are they? The same as all adjustments, stimulating your nerve system to adapt and overcome…..due to the fact that your nerve system controls how your immune system functions! No flu shot here! Chiropractic offices all over the country have front office staff that see hundreds of patients every week. They are not receiving the flu shots like other places and have not lost any days from work or have had any signs or symptoms! How does chiropractic increase immunity? Studies show better coordinate immune response, boost T1 immune cell response, decrease inflammation, etc etc! 1918 Flu Pandemic: Medical doctors in Davenport, Iowa treated 93,590 patients with 6,116 deaths 1 out of 15. Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, 1,635 flu cases were adjusted, with only one fatality. No flu shots there! Allow your body to receive what it needs from within, the way you were designed.
