I will NEVER get the flu shot. I only use raw garlic and of course drink a lot of spring water. This is healthier and more effective than any man made drugs in my opinion and experiences. Many of you may wonder why someone with a background in pharmacy prefers natural medicine? Well, I’ve been studying Natural Medicine for almost 7 years now. Pharmacy consisted of 2 years. There is something so natural about the substances in nature and their abilities to restore health and harmony in the body. Not only is it fast acting, it is a very effective medicine much better than any synthetic man made chemical made. Oh and did I mention your not likely to get sick again with the illness right after you get better. Sound familiar? (When taking a antibiotic many of my MD doctors would always state the illness is likely to come back and may be worse than before).

Did you know your immune system consist of 80% of your digestive tract? (0)
Just this past Wednesday my daughter and I came down with the flu virus. Immediately I took raw garlic as often as every 2-3 hours or when needed. My symptoms consisted of fever-chills, migraine, stuffy nose and sore throat… those were the early onset symptoms. I had to act fast, so I immediately started taking cloves of garlic, chopping it up, I would wait 10-15 minutes to allow the Allicin enzymes to activate. I would drink water and eat a small granola bar to take my garlic with. Garlic alone can be a bit harsh on an empty stomach for the first few minutes.
If you are wondering what I will give my toddler, here is the recipe.
It is Saturday, and I feel like myself again! I may have a slight sore throat so, I will continue to take raw garlic until that has vanished too. Please allow me to teach you of natural medicine and how potent it really is.
Garlic has this enzyme as I mentioned before called Allicin it is a potent natural medicine and also give Garlic its smell. It is a well known antiviral, antibacterial and anti-fungal also known to be one of the BEST infection fighters available (1).
Garlic is low in calories but rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Manganese, Selenium, Fiber and contains a decent amount of Calcium, Copper, Potassium, Phosphorus, Iron and Vitamin B1(2). Everything your body needs to boost immune system response fast all in one little clove.
Studies prove that Garlic contains powerful antioxidants that protect against cell damage and ageing. High doses of garlic have been shown to increase antioxidants levels in humans.(3).
There is so many more health benefits that I could share about garlic and it’s properties but I just wanted to elaborate on those.
Now, you may be wondering why I would NEVER get the flu shot? Simple as this, it contains known toxic ingredients. Please see chart below. With my knowledge and understanding the ingredients are a potent toxic concoction that is enough to wreck havoc and ruin my immune health.
I will share the ingredients below. Also what I learned while working in pharmacy, they teach us that the flu shot is up to 3 strains of the most common flu virus for the season (4). Please allow me to give you perspective there are thousands of strains you can get sick with the flu (5). That not only can make you get sick immediately with one of those three strands, but leaves one susceptible to so many other strains. Logically, I don’t see this method as a good health investment or coverage.
According to the Center of Disease Control list the toxic cancer causing fillers and additives in the flu vaccine(6).
That is enough for me to say no way am I putting those toxic ingredients in my body!!
When I was in pharmacy we would push sales for these flu vaccines to get pizza parties or the store would get a bonus. Honestly, I saw it as the pharmaceutical industry didn’t want people to heal otherwise they would be out of business. Think about that, they treat symptoms when really it masks the underlining causes of the disease or illness. Yet keeps the patient coming back again and again and again.
Pretty sad reality huh? I don’t want to discourage anyone but I am being blunt about the facts and my personal experiences. I had to get out of pharmacy for several reason I did not agree with. I want to heal people and educate them. I have used natural medicine for myself and my family and will continue to for the years to come. It always works 100% of the time every time, also I never get sick there after my body overcomes that sickness. My immune system is stronger after and had support to build resistance to prevent this. As the immune system was designed to do.
Holisticali has a wonderful curated list of the best immune system herbs that work as a natural medicines with the human body. Of course Garlic being one of them. Try theses first, let me know if you have any questions.
I hope you take this information to heart and apply this knowledge to your lifestyle. It has been some time for me to share this with people as I only would share with close friends and family and a few co-workers. I don’t claim to be a doctor or a MD or ND. This is valuable information that I feel I should share with everyone based off of my personal experiences and knowledge. Your welcome to your own doctors opinion as well. I’m not telling anyone what to do. I’m simply sharing my personal experiences and knowledge so you can make a educated decision for your own health and well-being.
