The Drug-Free Way to Stay Flu-Free!
It’s the key to a strong immune system
Everyone’s talking about the COVID-19 vaccine right now.
But there’s another type of vaccine that gets pushed this time of year as well:
The flu shot.
There are too many unknowns about the COVID-19 vaccine for me to give you advice one way or another.
But we know PLENTY about the flu shot… which is why I always tell my patients the same thing:
DON’T DO IT.
That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take proactive steps to prevent the flu. You absolutely should.
But there are better, drug-free ways to do it.
And the BEST way I know of is to spend more time in the sun.
A paper published by the National Bureau of Economic Research found that higher levels of sunlight was linked to a lower incidence of influenza.
The results showed that when sunlight levels were 10 percent higher than average in September, there was a three-point reduction in the influenza index during the same month.
The connection was especially evident during the summer and early fall.
There’s a good reason for this…
First, getting midday sunlight is the BEST source of vitamin D, which is crucial for a strong immune system.
Study after study has shown that having ample blood levels of vitamin D reduces the risk of getting the flu.
Second, getting morning light will help set your circadian clock for the day, which ensures your immune system is functioning properly.
Properly set circadian clocks also allow us to get restful sleep — another critical factor for optimal immune system repair.
There’s no denying that the flu can be dangerous… even deadly for some individuals.
But getting the flu shot is not the best way to protect yourself.
For starters, no one knows what strain of the flu will emerge from season to season—so it’s no wonder that the highly respected Cochrane Review found that you need to vaccinate 71 people to prevent ONE case of flu!
Plus, in the process of getting a shot that may be completely ineffective, you’re exposing yourself to toxic levels of aluminum, formaldehyde, and mercury (which can cause memory loss, depression, digestive problems, cardiovascular complications, and more).
The single best thing you can do to avoid getting the flu—or any other illness, for that matter—this winter is to make sure your immune system is up to the task.
You can help do that by boosting your levels of vitamin D.
For optimal health and flu prevention, they should be at least 60 ng/mL.
