Flu Shot Proven To Be Ineffective. Again.

Guess what? 

According to several articles and reports, the current flu shot doesn't work against the flu strain circulating this year. 


It's a crap shoot. Every year the flu is caused by several hundred different agents, with a vaccine against just one or two of them. 

You're rolling the dice and hoping there's a match between the flu shot you get and the season's flu strain.

I've never had a flu shot and don't plan to get one any time soon. I believe most flu shots are no better than a placebo. 

If you're taking good care of yourself, I don't think a flu shot is necessary or will do you much good.

So how can you protect yourself from the flu?

  • Get enough Vitamin D for strong immune function
  • Regular (but not necessarily exhaustive) exercise
  • Manage stress and get enough sleep
  • Drink plenty of fluids, especially water
  • Wash your hands with regular soap

Finally, a strong immune system will identify a flu virus and take care of it. 

Stop hurting yourself by eating junk food and sugar. 

Strengthen your immune system by eating nine or more servings of fruits and vegetables every day, so your immune system can do its job.

If you have a hard time consuming that much nutrition on a daily basis, then consider supplementation made from food. 

My family and I take a whole-food supplement called BarleyLife Xtra It's a quick and easy way for us to get our fruits and veggies every day.

No shot can make up for poor nutrition. Good nutrition can help in the fight against the flu. 

Is it time to use it?
