(NaturalHealth365) Research reveals that low vitamin D is the main cause of the flu. Unfortunately, millions of people still (falsely) believe that the flu vaccine is a good “prevention” strategy. But, the truth is, there is no scientific evidence proving the effectiveness of a flu shot.
Ask yourself this simple question – is it really necessary for me to inject toxic chemicals like, mercury and formaldehyde into my body to avoid the flu? I suggest, before you get vaccinated, take some time to read this article and make an informed decision.
What really causes an outbreak of the flu?
According to a Norwegian study, vitamin D has an antibiotic effect on the immune system. The study claims that a vitamin D deficiency is likely to blame for the flu epidemic in Norway. The winter months are when there is a significantly lower level of vitamin D in the population – due to inadequate solar radiation.
According to the study, these flu epidemics trigger a steep rise in infection and mortality rates as exposure to sunlight diminishes. In the winter season, when vitamin D deficiency is at its highest, mortality rates are 600 times higher than during summer time – according to the Norwegian study.
Good science is suppressed by the mainstream media
According to Professor Johan Moan; “Vitamin D acts as an antibiotic and strengthens the immune system. UV radiation exposure stimulates the production of vitamin D in the skin. In the winter months, when the sun’s zenith is too low in the sky for vitamin D synthesis to take place, the body’s vitamin D level drops, as a result of which its protective effect is unable to fully develop.”
These scientists, at the University of Oslo, examined data on flu epidemics from Sweden, Norway, the United States, Singapore and Japan. They discovered a direct correlation between infection; mortality rates and low vitamin D levels. In other words, your risk for sickness and death rises as your vitamin D level drops!
Supercharge your immunity with extra vitamin D
The work of several pioneering experts reveal that, at sufficient levels, vitamin D is capable of boosting the immune system and virtually eliminate the risk of infections. These findings encourage people to ignore the conventional recommendation of 400-800 IU per day because it’s not enough. Simply put, most people would benefit from a dose of 5,000 to 10,000 IU per day.
Obviously, you need to get yourself tested for vitamin D and work with a physician that appreciates the value of good nutrition.
In 2005, Dr. John Cannell had an amazing experience – widely unreported. Working as a psychiatrist at the Atascadero State Hospital, he found himself in the mist of a severe outbreak of seasonal influenza. A substantial number of inpatients were infected and most prison wards were quarantined. However, not one of the 32 patients in Dr. Cannell’s care developed the flu.
Funny how conventional medicine refuses to take a closer look at this story
Dr. Cannell was so successful with his patients because his treatment regimen included high doses of vitamin D. He was aware that his patients couldn’t get enough sunlight, required for health, so he had them on supplemental doses.
This was a 100 percent rate of flu protection, which was just about repeated by Norris Glick, MD, a Director of Rehab services at Central Wisconsin Center, a long-term care facility for people with developmental disabilities. Dr. Glick discovered that all 275 of his patients were vitamin D deficient and used supplements to maintain adequate levels.
Dr. Glick reported that during the H1N1 (swine flu) outbreak of June 2009, only two of his patients developed flu like symptoms, while 103 (“unmonitored”) staff members got the flu. He pointed out that was direct proof of the protective effect of vitamin D.
Kill the flu virus with high doses of vitamin D
Dr. Ellie Campbell, an integrative family medicine practitioner in Georgia, where there have been widespread H1N1 outbreaks – had similar positive results. Dr. Campbell measured and replenished the vitamin D in her patients, while the physician who shared her office did NOT follow her protocol. The fellow physician was seeing up to 10 cases per week of influenza, while Campbell had just one over the whole period.
It is estimated that 87 percent of adults are vitamin D deficient by late winter when most flu epidemics occur. Vitamin D levels below 30-40ng/ml are considered insufficient and many think the aim should be from 50-80ng/ml for flu protection.
Get yourself tested and protect yourself
Finding out your vitamin D level will not only protect you from the flu, but from the need for vaccinations. It’s a simple, inexpensive blood test that will help you to make an informed decision about your own healthcare.
