This video was shot just last week when I was speaking in Los Angeles at the American Botanical Pharmacy store. In this video I’m talking about the routine I do when I get a Cold or Flu.
Also you should know that the CDC just released new information about this year's Influenza Outbreak.
From the Centers for Disease Control, Atlanta: This year's flu vaccine is only 23 percent effective, according to new estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
That figure is on the low side of effectiveness for flu vaccines, and confirms earlier speculation among public health officials that this season’s vaccine was a poor match for the dominant viruses in circulation.
In the 10 years the CDC has been studying flu vaccine effectiveness, seasonal vaccines have ranged from 10 percent to 60 percent in their effectiveness to prevent flu-related visits to medical practices.
Federal health officials blame the vaccine’s reduced effectiveness on genetic changes in this season’s dominant flu strain — A (H3N2). According to the CDC, more than two-thirds of A (H3N2) viruses in circulation have “drifted” — or become genetically different — from the A (H3N2) component used in this year's vaccine.
There you have it, direct from the CDC, more bad news about the Pharmaceutical Flu Shot and how it doesn’t work. Which, by the way, I have been telling you for years!
The good news is, my Cold & Flu “SHOT” which contains the finest Echinacea available DOES work!
In October 2012 I reported this right here on my Blog:
In one of the largest MEDICAL studies to date on Echinacea, medical researchers discovered again how powerful this herb is at PREVENTING colds and influenza, and also reducing the number of reoccurring colds in people with weak immune systems. It also cut the duration of colds dramatically.
The study was performed at the Cardiff University Common Cold Centre in Great Britain and concluded that people taking three daily doses of Echinacea extract for four months had a dramatic reduction in cold and flu infections. Also, the group taking the Echinacea extract, if they did get an infection, that Echinacea cut the duration of the infection dramatically.
The study also concluded that Echinacea dramatically BOOSTED the immune system in people with weak immune systems, and REDUCED the number of infections this group caught, by 60%!
It’s your choice what you put into your body friends, but I choose nature and better yet, it’s more effective.
See you next week!
