Vitamin D versus Flu Vaccine.   What an amazing world we live in.  Our access to natural health products has ushered in a wonderful new age of health and wellness.  In fact, there is some new evidence that suggests Vitamin D may be more effective than the flu vaccine.  In this article, we’ll delve right into that research.

The Common Medical Approach

The medical field, and when I say medical I really should say big phrama, has been touting the flu vaccine for years.  In fact they have convinced the government, medical industry and even the general population that it is necessary.  You know when my father was practicing medicine, the flu vaccine was only recommended for senior citizens.  The theory behind that is as you age your immune system diminishes like everything else.

However, there are several problems with the flu vaccine.  First of all First of all, the flu vaccine loaded with Thiomersal, which contains loads of mercury.   In fact Thiomersal contains over 2500 times more mercury than the EPA considers toxic.  The flu vaccine can also lead to a life threatening illness known as Guillain-Barré syndrome.  This horrible disease paralyzes the heart and lungs leading to death.  Additionally, there are only a couple of strains of the flu virus in the vaccine versus the millions of variations out there.

Vitamin D on the other hand,

Dr. John Cannell, founder of the Vitamin D Council, was one of the first to introduce the idea that vitamin D deficiency may actually be an underlying CAUSE of the flu.

His hypothesis1 was initially published in the journal Epidemiology and Infection in 2006. It was subsequently followed up with another study published in the Virology Journal in 2008.

The following year, the largest nationally representative study of its kind to date discovered that people with the lowest vitamin D levels indeed reported having significantly more colds or cases of the flu. In conclusion, lead author Dr. Adit Ginde stated:

“The findings of our study support an important role for vitamin D in prevention of common respiratory infections, such as colds and the flu. Individuals with common lung diseases, such as asthma or emphysema, may be particularly susceptible to respiratory infections from vitamin D deficiency.”

The Enzyme Nutrition Approach

Now in enzyme nutrition, we don’t seek to immunize against the flu, or even cure the flu.  In fact enzyme nutrition is not intended to diagnose or treat disease.  What it can do, however, is support healthy immune system function.   And of course, if your immune system is working properly, you’ll be able to fight off viral infections such as the flu much more efficiently.

Are you concerned about healthy immune function? Do you get sick a lot even with more Vitamin D?  Are you missing out on work family or fun?  If so, give us a call and set up a consultation.  I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life.  I will even do some preliminary testing as well as Bio Impedance Analysis (BIA).   In fact did you know that both NASA and Cancer Treatment Centers of America rely on BIA?  These tests help me determine if you are a good candidate for care.  If you’re not, we’ll make every effort to provide the proper referral.

Adult Onset Allergies

Adult Onset Allergies

It’s not your Immune System

Adult Onset Allergies
Learn how Adult Onset Allergies may spell liver trouble

Adult Onset Allergies. There has been a steep rise in cases of asthma and allergies in the U.S. over the past few decades. Why?  According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about one in 12 people in the U.S. have allergies, or about 25 million people. And the rate appears to be on the rise. From 2001 to 2011, the CDC says the number of Americans with allergies grew by 28 percent. (HealthLine Web Site).  Unfortunately many health care professionals look to suppress your immune system to treat your allergy symptoms.  In this article, I’ll go into why this treatment only targets the symptoms, rather than the cause of the problem.

While your allergies are the result of an overactive immune system, often times the cause lies much further “upstream”.  Also, it’s important to point out that if you were born with certain allergies, that’s a completely different story.  This article deals with allergies acquired later in life; i.e. adult onset allergies (or adolescent).

How it Starts

So where does it all start?  Often times, it all starts in the liver.  In fact, your liver acts like a filter straining out toxins from the blood.  This of course keeps your blood clean and healthy.  But what happens if the liver gets overloaded and can’t keep up with demand?  Sadly, due to the Standard American Diet, that’s too true way too often.  Now these harmful toxins back up into the blood stream.  Unfortunately your body knows they’re not supposed to be there.  So what does it do?  It uses the immune system to attack them.  And this is what causes your allergy symptoms.  The common medical approach is to block the immune system cells responsible for that attack.  Can you see why this only patches the symptoms?

Our Approach to Healthy Liver and Immune support

Fortunately, there is a solution to helping both your liver and immune system work properly.  In fact that’s exactly what enzyme nutrition does.  Through scientific testing based on sound medical principles, our testing will identify the source of stress in the body.  Then with a precise combination of gradual dietary changes and enzyme supplements we can support the healthy function of that organ.  In this case that may end up being the liver, and/or the immune system.

Are you concerned about your liver or immune health?  Does your condition affect your work, play or family?  Would you like a more active lifestyle?  Or perhaps you’re worried about a loved one.  Give us a call and set up a consultation.  Let us help your body work properly by finding and addressing the source of stress.  In fact, we will take the time to sit down and talk with you about your suffering.  We will even do some preliminary testing to determine if you are a good candidate for care.
