Paleo Quick Tip of the Day #43- Do NOT get a flu shot!


Every Fall, like clockwork, the medical clinics and doctors start advertising and pushing for flu shots- even shopping centers and pharmacies are offering them.  Should you get one?

Well, remember a few years ago when the flu shot was recommended only for the elderly and children, especially those with compromised health...

And NOW the YEARLY flu shot is recommended to EVERYONE over 6 months of age!

Let’s see, if everyone in the United States over the age of 6 months gets a flu shot, well that’s a really big profit for the pharmaceutical companies and the medical clinics that administer it, isn’t it?

And there you have the real reason why the flu shot is being promoted- profit!

If you get a chicken pox vaccine, you supposedly become immune for your entire life to chicken pox.  But you are supposed to get a flu vaccine every single year- and that is said to be because the virus mutates, and is slightly different year to year, and this is true...

And it’s also true that the flu vaccine manufacturer has no idea what mutated form the next years virus will take- they just guess!

In addition, the vaccines are loaded with toxic substances such as aluminum, MSG, and even antifreeze!  Who wants that stuff??

And so, bottom line, it is your own body and its innate health that determines whether or not you get the flu, or for that matter any sort of disease.  The very best thing you can do for yourself in terms of protection is to follow some simple tenets of health that have been with us since paleolithic times-

Cut grains and sugars from your diet

Get adequate sleep- 8 hours per night

Consume LOTS of dark green veggies, God made real foods like:
Natural full fat dairy such as grass fed butter, pastured meats, wild caught seafood, coconut milk and natural spices such as cloves, cinnamon, turmeric and ginger

Exercise naturally, with perfectly paleo exercises like pushups, virtual resistance training or transformetrics, barefoot sprinting and other interval training, and other calisthenics

The very best way of incorporating a wonderful, real foods diet high in all of these things is with a Paleo smoothie, made in a Vitamix blender, on a daily basis.  This is a concentrated form of real, complete foods (all the fiber is there in the drink!) that is worlds better than “juicing”, which removes the fiber and concentrates the sugars in the resulting juice.

At www.paleojay.com there is a link to take you to Vitamix Corporation directly to order your own Vitamix with free shipping.

Save the yearly cost of toxic, worse-than-useless flu vaccines for each and every member of your family and put it towards a tool that will really enhance and build your health, and that of your entire family for decades- get yourself a Vitamix blender and build the health of your body from the inside out.
