Cold and Flu, and Shingles All Begin With a Nasty Virus


Yes, there are flu shots and shingle vaccines, but it seems that pharmaceutical companies want us to believe that drugs are the only prevention to a virus outbreak.  However, I don't think that always inoculating ourselves against a virus is the best way to remain healthy.  In a healthy environment, our bodies are equipped with a mechanism called the immune system that fights foreign substances.  Drugs are not the answer as drugs do not address good health.  We should be emphasizing a healthy lifestyle and healthy diet to maintain good health.  When I was a kid, we were probably healthier than we are today and drugs were not advertised on TV, and it was rare that people were on several medications daily.  We caught the flu, we got a cold, and we even had chicken pox.  And, as a kid we were even allowed to get dirty.  We would go out fishing, bait our hooks with worms, rub our hands on our overalls, and eat a sandwich.  There wasn't the fear of germs, bacteria and viruses.  With all the flu shots and shingles vaccines, we are not allowing the body to get stronger to fight the good cause for health.  Health comes from a balanced lifestyle not from drugs.  If you've had chicken pox, yes, you have the virus locked in your nervous system.  And when the virus is activated, it moves up the nervous system to the surface of the skin and ruptures into a blister.  Yes, they are painful.  And if you watch all the ads on TV of the people who are describing the amount of pain they have from shingles, it's probably going to entice you to go to your doctor for the shingles vaccine.  I really wonder if these are real people or actors as they sure make you want to rush out for the shingles vaccine.  Viruses are like weeds in the garden.  If you don't take care of your garden, the weeds will overrun your good crops.  If you don't take care of your body and maintain good health, you could possibly have an outbreak of a virus.  You can't eat junk food, live on carbohydrates and sugar, smoke, drink excessively and have soft drinks as your main beverage and expect to maintain good health.  Sorry, it takes a little more discipline to eat a healthy diet, combine that with 8-9 hours of sleep, get 30 minutes of exercise several times a week, dump the garbage food, sugar, refined carbohydrates and carbohydrates in general.    Sugar is poison and it disrupts the healthy metabolism of the body.  But if you want to protect your health, of course, talk to your doctor about the shingles vaccine.  But personally, I recommend ravintsara oil.  Then combine that with oil of myrtle, thyme and bay and you have a powerhouse of immune enhancing protection to deactivate viruses and kill bacteria.  Use this combination of oils to protect you and your immune system.  To clean up your diet, educate yourself on foods that strengthen your health and foods that destroy your health.  Go to www.ketogenic-diet-resource.com and www.drperlmutter.com.  Read the book, Grain Brain by Perlmutter and Wheat Belly by Dr. William Davis.
