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, you can contact us one of several ways to set up a consultation. You can reach us on the web, stop by our office in Redmond, WA, or call us at 425-868-0120. Then 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.
After many years of clinical practice, Dr. Marrone has forged a remarkable career as a practitioner, educator and lecturer. His extensive knowledge of enzyme nutrition has made him a much sought after practitioner. If you are suffering from health problems that nobody seems to have the answer to, or are sick and tired of the revolving door approach of modern medicine, give Dr. Marrone a call to set up a consultation.
