There is something that I don’t understand about all this discussion about the flu vaccine, when we were kids we got flu, went to bed and got better, it was no big deal. In our house we didn’t even know what our temperature was as we didn’t have a thermometer and to tell the truth I don’t even remember taking anything at all. We just used to sweat it out and I don’t remember being ill with flu very often.
I genuinely don’t understand what is wrong with getting flu if you are a healthy person with a healthy immune system. Flu can give you the opportunity to sweat out a few toxins from your body, it can give you the opportunity to stay at home and just chill, it can also give you the opportunity to test your immune system to see if it is in good working order.
When I have had flu in the past afterwards I have always felt amazing as if my body needed to rest and get rid of a few accumulated toxins. Our modern lives are full of things that are bad for us, unfortunately even the air we breath and the water we drink is not always of the best quality so it is inevitable that our system gets clogged up. Maybe flu is a way of ‘declogging’ so if we prevent ourselves from getting this illness we are negating ourselves a valuable body-cleansing system.
Of course I am no doctor I look at life through my own experiences, when swine flu was going around there was a big fuss, I remember being in the UK and phone lines were set up I was a bit concerned about being able to fly home to Italy if my kids became ill. In the end I think my kids got it though I could never be sure as I didn’t get them tested, for them it was very mild, I even used myself as a guinea pig and tried really hard to get it from them. I ate from their cutlery and drank from their glasses, ok it may have been weird but i just wanted to see if it really was that contagious. I didn’t get it. My kids really enjoyed it as they had a low fever and still felt fine but didn’t have to go to school for a week.
Flu is horrible, maybe it feels horrible because we have toxin overload in our bodies, you do feel rough and can lead to complications if you have other health issues, but as I said before as normal healthy kids we used to get it, go to bed, rest, then get well and we lived to tell the tale.
Just a few thoughts, have a lovely day!
