Subject: H1N1 -- The flu formerly known as "Swine"
Good evening everyone,
Here we go yet again! -- It's.. errrr... " Flu Season ". Of course, along with that come the obligatory admonishments to " GET YOUR FLU SHOT !".
Until now * , that recommendation was simply laughable for me. I've never taken one - and would not consider it. I'll not bore you with the political and unbelievable financial interests which drive the manufacture and promotion of these toxic drugs ; nor will I recount my witnessing of one student's horrific reaction to the 1976 "Swine Flu" shot while I was at Boston College. It is not within my scope of practice as a Dr. of Chiropractic in Massachusetts, to make specific recommendations re the use of pharmaceuticals, but I can provide information which can help folks make informed choices.
Remember that Mother Nature's rules can never be broken without consequences. The body has an incredible innate capacity to stay healthy -- IF it is supplied with the essential building blocks to build cells, clear metabolic wastes and other toxins, support a strong immune system, etc. This means broad spectrum NUTRITION... air, water, a wide array of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, nucleic acids, essential fatty acids, enzymes, and so on. Nutrients heal tissues - not drugs .
My usual disclaimer applies of course ... Western Medicine is wonderful for certain things -- acute injuries, amazing surgeries, life saving medications -- but for achieving robust functional health, remember.. NUTRIENTS heal tissues, NOT DRUGS .
In simple terms, that means loading up on fresh, organic vegetables of all colors, and other complex carbs like whole grains, legumes, brown rice, bran, wheat germ, oatmeal, sweet potatoes; healthful fats like fish oil, flax oil, olive oil, borage oil, black currant seed oil, evening primrose oil, avocados; clean proteins - Alaskan wild salmon, free range chicken, antibiotic-free meats; ample clean water, exercise and plenty of rest.
Important : Avoid refined/processed foods like sugar, cakes, cookies, chips, most cereals, soda, candy. Yea, I know... all the "good" stuff.. but they're nutritional zeros, and all promote cellular inflammation among other problems.
Additional nutritional supplementation is valuable for most of us - certainly extra Vitamins D and C in the winter. D is perhaps the single most common vitamin deficiency in the United States, and absolutely one of the most important.
As you know, freedom of communication within the nervous system is critical (read chiropractic treatment!). If we haven't seen you for a while, I'd recommend scheduling a visit. A change of seasons - especially heading from summer into fall and winter - offers a different set of stresses and challenges to which our bodies must respond. I've consistently observed a need for tweaking of our supplement regimens at these times -- particularly in the types and ratios of nutritional oils we respond to (Omegas 3, 6 and 9). Now is therefore an important time for Applied Kinesiological evaluation of endocrine, immune, and digestive function. Please tell Judy, when you call, that you're interested in setting up a " winter tune-up ". (Yep pretty catchy expression, I know ). She'll know what you mean.
* OK here comes the twist ... These vaccinations, while pushed on the public relentlessly from every direction, have heretofore been voluntary . Different story this year! Healthcare workers in New York state have been fired for refusing the vaccine. New Jersey children aged 6 months to 5 years, are barred from pre-school or licensed day care without the flu shot. And the kicker, as far as most of us are concerned -- Governor Deval Patrick is, as I type, fast tracking legislation which will allow him to empower police, fire and other personnel to knock on your door, and inject you and your kids in your home!! If you refuse, you shall be subject to arrest and/or a $1,000/day fine. Are you aware of this?? A sampling of information for you below...

Lots of vitally important information here if you're interested in protecting your own health, and that of your children!
I've written to my state rep, and will continue to stay on top of this. After you make your way through the above links, I'm positive that you'll be compelled to do the same. As always, I'd be interested in any feedback you may have.
Yours in vibrant health ---
