Holistic Support for the Flu

This is the hottests summers in the UK, but still an important time to support our immune system and plan for the cold winder months.

You will find some information about the flu and how to stay protected. I am sending also specifically this email now as I can order for my existing patients Poly-Influenzinum, a Homeopathic product made by a German pharmacy, which includes more than 200 imprints of virus related to the flu.

You can find the whole list of covered virus for this year here.

The remedy is to be taken once a month for one year. Please email me back if you wish to pre-order it (only valid for my patients).
Even very sensitive patients, and the one who are immuno-compromised, can take this product, but do inform me of this when you order, so that I can give you special instructions.

Like every year, I am happy to organise a bulk-order to save money:
– If you order by Monday 20th of August, the cost to pre-order Poly-Influenzinum is £26 (excluding postage).
– If you wish to order it after this, and it is still in stock, it will cost £35.

Let me know, and below are more information on the flu if you are interested.

All the best for the rest of the summer,

Thierry

What causes the flu and how is the flu vaccine made?
There are more than 200 types of flu viruses, which are divided into 3 groups: A, B and C. It is important to note that other viruses or bacteria can also provoke what is called the flu, or flu-like symptoms.
The flu viruses are divided as follows:
 Type A is usually the more serious type. The virus is most likely to mutate into a new version, which people are not resistant to.
 Type B generally causes a less severe illness and is responsible for smaller outbreaks. Type B mainly affects young children.
 Type C usually causes a mild illness similar to the common cold.
In February each year, the World Health Organization (WHO) makes an assessment of the strains of flu virus that are most likely to be circulating during the winter. Based on this assessment, three flu strains out of more than 200 are selected for the vaccine. One of the concerns about the flu vaccine in particular is that it cannot possibly protect you against all types of flu viruses.
Another issue is the list of adjuvant added to the vaccine. For example the Flurivin vaccine contains the following Beta-Propiolactone , Egg Protein, Neomycin, Polymyxin B, Polyoxyethylene 9-10, Nonyl Phenol (Triton N-101, Octoxynol 9), Thimerosal (multidose containers), Thimerosal.

As it was widely reported after the 2009 flu pandemic, there has been several health warnings on the flu vaccines, including 200 cases of narcolepsy in children in Finland and Sweden, and many concerns among health professionals about the approach of vaccinating against swine flu.

What are the ways to protect naturally against the flu?
The flu (or Influenza) virus is spread by inhaling droplets that have been coughed or sneezed out by an infected person or by having direct contact with an infected person’s secretions. Handling household articles that have been in contact with an infected person or an infected person’s secretions may sometimes spread the disease.
It is however important to understand that viruses and bacteria are more likely to thrive in places where they find ingredients to grow and replicate. This includes first your body. If a person carrying the flu virus sneezes and coughs out in a busy London Underground train, most of the people surrounding him or her will be exposed, but only a few will get sick.
For this reason, the first strategy is to get rid and try to reduce exposure to toxins, that may impact our body.
The second pillar to a strong immune system is a healthy diet, fitting your metabolic type, and not based on supplements.
Then, one needs to work on the emotional and mental balance, as any by-product to stress can  seriously depress the immune system.
To summarise: germs grow on rubbish, so make sure your body is as clean of rubbish as possible, including external and internal toxins.
