Swine Flu or Strong Immune System?

swine flu scareEven without a television, I find it almost impossible to ignore the swine flu messages being bombarded into our brains each and every day. CNN is covering the swine flu as though it was Armageddon. It’s not. Knowing that the media is designed to manipulate our decisions in all facets of our lives, I became fascinated with what message it is that they’re trying to sell.

Swine flu “marketing” seems to be about drugs more than anything else. It seems to bring our attention to the precautions we can take to protect ourselves from it, now and for the next round.

Drugs are NOT the answer and never have been. Drugs are the PROBLEM

It’s important to clarify something before I move on.

Based on the principles of the law of attraction (LOA), if we continue to focus on the swine flu and what the media is reporting as the “dangers of swine flu” then more and more fear is going to develop.

What you focus on expands. It’s a simple principle

As you begin to exercise, you begin to lose weight. The more you exercise, the faster you lose the weight and the more interested you become in exercise, exercise routines, good food and better eating. It expands the more you focus on it.

Swine Flu Solution

As a solution to this media based frenzy about the swine flu here is my step by step plan to peace of mind during the pandemic.

1. Turn off your television
2. Quit reading the paper for at least 2 weeks (or better yet, for good!)
3. Focus on taking care of your immune system, eating well, and exercising

It’s your immune system and your mind that are your allies now (and forever).

Dr Mercola from Mercola.com says that the #1 priority for protecting yourself without drugs, vaccinations or inoculations is :

Optimize your vitamin D levels. As I've previously reported, optimizing your vitamin D levels is one of the absolute best strategies for avoiding infections of ALL kinds, and vitamin D deficiency is likely the TRUE culprit behind the seasonality of the flu -- not the flu virus itself.

I use this source of Vitamin D which combines calcium, magnesium, vitamin D and Boron along with digestive enzymes to deliver it 100% into my body. It’s wonderful added to my protein shakes because it’s strawberry flavored or mixed with ice and blended by itself as a nice drink.

The rest of the strategy for improving your immune system includes

Avoid all sugars and processed foods – your immune system simply stops working for 30 minutes or more after the consumption of sugar

Get optimal rest – sleep, rest, let your body heal and recover which goes hand in hand with:

Reduce your stress – using any techniques you have available. , yoga, etc.

Exercise - the simple act of walking pumps your lymph system and allows your body to clean itself. A cleaner body is more efficient, stronger and more able to resist infection. Oxygen is your friend

Wash your hands

Stay away from hospitals and especially vaccines - I've heard that even doctors are advising that you phone first, before just showing up at the hospital if you think you have the flu, so why go there if you're healthy?

Avoid Flying if you can – It’s my belief that it’s the recycling of the air within the cabin of airplanes that create more chances of infection of the flu or swine flu than staying at your destination (but that’s my take).

The swine flu scare is based on money, not truth. According the the World Health Organization, there have been 331 reported cases in 11 countries and only 9 deaths, ALL of which were in Mexico (where I suspect their immune systems are a little less than optimum).

What scares me the most is that this swine flu marketing pandemic is more about control and fear. I see that it's simply a way to have more people turn to vaccinations, immunizations and inoculations in the future.

Think about it. If you wanted to sell a vaccine to protect people, create a scare of global proportions and then have a back end product to sell or give them to prepare for the next one (read: imaginary one).

Focus on what you want, not what you don’t want. Turn off the television, stop reading the paper and focus on a strong healthy immune system rather than the dangers of the swine flu.

Our government should just come out and call this what it is: 'Mexican Flu'. This is clearly an attempt to give us Americans a negative view of Mexico, and the fact that U.S.-Mexico relations are strained is no coincidence.

yes Ares, except that it originated in the US (in California) and has been tracked to factory farms in the USA.

Factory farms are a breeding ground for illness and disease.
