FLU SEASON 2013 – Nation Hit Hard By Influenza – Major Flu Outbreak Grips Nation
Every year, just after Thanksgiving to just before Valentine’s Day we are constantly bombarded with the above mentioned headlines. Every year we see news reports about shortages of the flu vaccine and we are told that this will be the worst year yet for people being susceptible to Influenza.
Let’s take a moment to logically examine how these headlines are repeated year after year. What happens at the end of November? Thanksgiving. What do we do at Thanksgiving? Well, if you’re like most people you have two (maybe even three) Thanksgiving dinners that you have to celebrate. Usually you and your spouse go spend time with your family. Then the next day you spend a few hours driving across the state to go celebrate Thanksgiving with your spouses family. Sometimes you spend an extra Thanksgiving with close friends. We all know what happens at Thanksgiving…we eat, eat, eat…loosen a notch on our belts, take a breather and go back to the kitchen to eat more. Then we sit down to have an adult beverage or two (or three) while we watch sports with friends and loved ones.
After Thanksgiving we are still gorging on leftovers for two to three days. Then the Christmas parties start. Cookies, cakes, rum balls, sugar, sugar, and more sugar. Plus, the two (or three) adult beverages just to be sociable.
Finally Christmas arrives. This includes more food, more desserts, and more drinks. Usually you have two Christmases to attend (just like Thanksgiving). At Christmas it seems that you encounter the cousin (and his wife) that you can’t stand (by the way, they don’t care too much for you either). Then Grandma thinks that Uncle Joe is being hard on Billy. Uncle Joe wants Billy to be more like his sister Julie. The stress builds up and to deal with the stress you eat more (because sometimes you’re an emotional eater) and you drink a little bit more (hey, it helps calm your nerves).
To reward yourself you decide to have a New Years Eve blowout extravaganza. More food, more snacks, and A LOT more drinks. You’ve already scheduled yourself off for January 2nd as January 1st happened during the middle of the week and you know that you’re going to be a little too exhausted to make it into work. January 2nd you get yourself going with a couple of Bloody Mary’s (a little ‘hair of the dog’ never hurt anyone). You start looking over your New Years Resolutions and you’re ready to conquer the world on January 3rd. You’re on track with your resolutions for one week and then BOOM!!! You’ve got The Flu!!!
You curse the flu. How could this happen to me? Why did this happen to me?!? You’re sick, tired, and mad. Darn you flu!
Whoa, wait a minute. It’s not the flu’s fault. It’s your fault. Look at what you did to your body for the last 6 weeks. You’ve abused it. You ate too much sugar, drank too much alcohol, been stressed out of your mind and then you ate even more. It’s been shown that sugar, alcohol, and stress all lower the defenses of your immune system and make your body more susceptible to illness.
Your “inner terrain” was compromised. Germs, “bugs”, and viruses are around us everyday. It’s when our bodies become toxic and polluted from the overload of cookies, cakes, beer, wine, and mixed drinks that our immune system can’t work at optimal potential.
Let me be clear, I’m not telling you to not get a flu shot. I am suggesting that you examine your dietary choices and how you handle stress. I do believe that you can offer your body supplements that can help support your immune system. One of those products is A.D.P.
A.D.P. is a standardized extract of the oil of oregano, emulsified in a sustained release form. My wife, Dr. Wendy Schauer, D.C., is a Doctor of Chiropractic, and she comes in contact with many patients during the Winter who are suffering from severe colds and flu. She takes her A.D.P. to boost her immune system and she never “catches” the cold or flu from her patients. (A.D.P. Is NOT recommended for pregnant or lactating women.)
I know that might sound like a little bit of “hype” to you. I apologize if it does. Here is an unsolicited testimonial from one of our clients, “CouchSurfing” Ori Bengal.
“I have seen A.D.P. bring people back from the verge of turning into a full blown “flu zombie”. A.D.P. is the secret weapon that I use for myself, my family, and my friends to fend off against colds, the flu, and even the dreaded “airplane flu”. When I travel I don’t have time to get sick, that’s why I always carry A.D.P. in my luggage.”
Please remember during this time of year to take the extra time to be aware of your diet and stress. You can only do good for your body by reducing the amount of sugar and alcohol that you put into your body. For more information on “cleaning your inner terrain” and naturally boosting your immune system I suggest following the work of, Dr. Robert O. Young. Here are links to two of his best selling books, “Sick and Tired” and “The PH Miracle”.
Here’s wishing you and yours all the best for a healthy 2013!
