FLU VACCINE ADVICE

For those of you that have had problems with reactions to vaccines in the past. I had to edit out some of the comments from the source which was anti-vaccine but thought some of you would find this helpful

A recent interview with Dr. Russell L. Blaylock over at the Nutrimedical Report contains some tips that could come in handy if you ever get this -- or any other -- vaccination.

Since the vaccine can send your immune system into overdrive and cause your inflammatory response to go haywire, your goal should be to head off your body's immune reaction.

Before you get the injection, be sure to load up on flavonoids. They're particularly powerful at suppressing a long-term immune reaction. You can get these from green tea and ginkgo, but if you really want a boost, take a supplement that contains curcumin, quercetin, ferulic acid and ellagic acid.

If you're not already taking fish oil, now is the time to start. Taking it an hour or so before your injection can limit the amount of brain inflammation.

Vitamins C, E, and D are also powerful anti-inflammatories.

Immediately after your injection, put an icepack wherever they stuck you. This blocks your immune reaction. Take one with you to the doctor's office so you have it ready.

Thanks Randy! That's valuable information I wish I had when I get the pneumovax. My arm was red, swollen, and sore for 3 days. I'll definitely give it a try for the flu shot, although I've never had a reaction to that.

Thanks Randy, that's very useful information.
I was wondering whether or not to get the flu
shot this year, because of all the bad publicity.

Your welcome

I probably should have qualified that information, especially for people taking meds, in case of negative interaction, You should ask your doctor, pharmacist or look up on the Internet about any negative reactions with your prescriptions when taking new things, even vitamins. Just enter the drug name with something like the word interaction & you'll find numerous sites, even one from the Mayo Clinic. That one should be trustworthy. Can't be too careful. My son's Epilepsy medication came with a warning not to combine with grapefruit or grapefruit juice, which wouldn't make him sick but might reduce the potency of the drug. I check the information for any new prescriptions my family gets. Have a safe flu season & your families too
