I’m sure you’ve all probably heard the recent hysteria over the flu “epidemic” this year….
While I’m not too sure if this year’s outbreak warrants all the panic, I do know one thing:
You won’t catch me or my family getting a flu shot– Not last year, not this year, not ever.
I’m not interested in injecting myself with a bunch of preservatives and mercury, plus there is no guarantee that getting the shot will actually prevent you from getting “the flu” since there are so many strains of it…
I prefer to arm myself and my family with natural defenses against illness– and I am happy to say that I don’t even remember the last time we went to the doctor for a flu or cold.
My hubby came down with a nasty bug over Christmas… I can’t say for sure if it was the “official” 2012 flu, but I do know it was bad stuff… Fever for many days, chills, aches, and a nasty cough. Hubby got it the worst, and Prairie Girl caught a milder version. I immediately started taking preventative measures for myself, and neither Prairie Boy or I ever came down with it. (I’m still amazed he didn’t get it, because he was only 2 months old… However, I’m pretty sure the combination of breastfeeding and a lot of prayer did the trick. )
Here is how we dealt with our recent bout of flu– no antibiotics or conventional medications required!
