Using Vitamin D to help boost the immune system

Another great article from
Dr. Mercola provides great information to help fight off the coming flu season and keep your body healthy naturally. Take the few minutes to watch this video so that you are well informed before you make a decision on taking a flu shot.

Another influenza season is beginning, and the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will strongly urge Americans to get a flu shot. In fact, the CDC mounts a well-orchestrated campaign each season to generate interest and demand for flu shots.

But a recent study published in the October issue of the Archives of Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine found that vaccinating young children against the flu appeared to have no impact on flu-related hospitalizations or doctor visits during two recent flu seasons.

At first glance, the data did suggest that children between the ages of 6 months and 5 years derived some protection from vaccination in these years. But after adjusting for potentially relevant variables, the researchers concluded that "significant influenza vaccine effectiveness could not be demonstrated for any season, age, or setting" examined.

Additionally, a Group Health study found that flu shots do not protect elderly people against developing pneumonia -- the primary cause of death resulting as a complication of the flu. Others have questioned whether there is any mortality benefit with influenza vaccination. Vaccination coverage among the elderly increased from 15 percent in 1980 to 65 percent now, but there has been no decrease in deaths from influenza or pneumonia.

There is some evidence that flu shots cause Alzheimers disease, most likely as a result of combining mercury with aluminum and formaldehyde. Mercury in vaccines has also been implicated as a cause of autism.

Three other serious adverse reactions to the flu vaccine are joint inflammation and arthritis, anaphylactic shock (and other life-threatening allergic reactions), and Guillain-Barré syndrome, a paralytic autoimmune disease.

One credible hypothesis that explains the seasonal nature of flu is that influenza is a vitamin D deficiency disease.

Vitamin D levels in your blood fall to their lowest point during flu seasons. Unable to be protected by the bodys own antibiotics (antimicrobial peptides) that are released by vitamin D, a person with a low vitamin D blood level is more vulnerable to contracting colds, influenza, and other respiratory infections.

Studies show that children with rickets, a vitamin D-deficient skeletal disorder, suffer from frequent respiratory infections, and children exposed to sunlight are less likely to get a cold. The increased number of deaths that occur in winter, largely from pneumonia and cardiovascular diseases, are most likely due to vitamin D deficiency.

Unfortunately, now, for the first time, flu vaccination is also being pushed for virtually all children -- not just those under 5.

This is a huge change. Previously, flu vaccine was recommended only for youngsters under 5, who can become dangerously ill from influenza. This year, the government is recommending that children from age 6 months to 18 years be vaccinated, expanding inoculations to 30 million more school-age children.

The government argues that while older children seldom get as sick as the younger ones, it's a bigger population that catches flu at higher rates, so the change should cut missed school, and parents' missed work when they catch the illness from their children.

Of course, this policy ignores the fact that a systematic review of 51 studies involving 260,000 children age 6 to 23 months found no evidence that the flu vaccine is any more effective than a placebo.

This was previously posted on the Renaissance Chiropractic group page.  I thought that since I am driving by at least 4 pharmacies everyday advertising flu shots on my way to and from the office, that I would share this again.  Again, Putting toxins into your body, whether by injection, pills, potions or lotions, is not good for your well being (my opinion).   Chiropractors want you to make good, informed choices for your well-being.   Knowing is half the battle.

Vaccination Content


Dis-ease - causing agents for vaccines are grown in putrid mixes of blood, tissue and other substances from: monkey kidneys, chicken and duck embryos; dog, horse, rabbit, mouse and cow tissues. Also, human tissue culture containing cells (notably from the uterine cancer of Henrietta Lack, an African American woman who died in the 1960's, and whose cancer cells were laboratory-proliferated and now contaminate cell lines in research labs around the globe) and increasingly human diploid cells obtained from the dissected organs of aborted fetuses. RNA & DNA from 11 species contaminate vaccines,

: a neuro-toxin which has been associated w/ Alzheimers, dis-ease, dementia and seizures; aluminum is carcinogenic in laboratory mice and added to vaccines to "promote antibody response."

a sodium salt derived from the deadly poison mercury and used as a disinfectant and preservative; thirmersal has been linked to brain and kidney damage as well as immune and neurological dis-orders; it is a component of vaccines for DPT, tetanus, hepatitius B and Hib.

a major component of embalming fluid, which of course is pumped into dead people to keep them dead; a known cancer-causing chemical, this toxic substance is used to "inactivate" viruses and detoxify bacterial toxins; formaldehyde has also shown to be injurious to the liver and to trigger gene mutations.

CARBOLIC ACID (PHENOL): believed to cause gender mutation; a deadly poison used as a disinfectant, dye;

Neomycin, Streptomycin and a variety of other drugs - to which increasing numbers of the population are demonstrating serious allergies and to which increasing numbers of microbes are developing genetically-transmitted tolerance;

ACETONE: used in fingernail polish remover and as a solvent;

ALUM: used as a preservative;

GLYCERIN: a tri-atomic alcohol extracted from natural fats which are putrefied and decomposed; toxic effects damage the kidneys, liver, lungs and "pronounced local tissue damage", gastrointestinal damage and death.

trace elements of other chemicals such as sodium
hydroxide, sorbitol, hydrolyzed gelatin, benzethonium chloride, methylparaben; some of which are known or suspected of causing cancer.

Eczema is a form of atopic dermatitis that manifests itself in the form of dry, rough skin that can or cannot be covered in a red and intensely itchy rash. According to renowned pediatrician Dr. Sears, eczema affects approximately 10 percent of infants and children. "The cause is mainly genetic," says Dr. Sears. "It is the result of an inborn tendency toward dry skin and allergies." The key to successful treatment is finding a way to moisturize and treat the allergies simultaneously.

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic treatment may be effective in treating eczema. The theory is that eczema is a manifestation of an attack on the immune system, which is linked to the central nervous system. Chiropractic treatments correct subluxations (or misalignment) in the spine that adversely affect these systems' abilities to function normally. In other words, a subluxation blocks optimal blood flow to the skin, making it more vulnerable to attack, as seen in the form of eczema.

The above paragraphs are from the site.  While there may be a genetic component to Eczema,  very few thing are strictly a genetic problem.  most conditions require an environmental stimulus to trigger the genetic response.   Eczema, psoriasis  and other skin conditions have a neurological component as well.  when the nerves to an area are impaired; circulation, sensation and sub-dermal muscles can be affected.  This can impact the severity of the skin conditions and their response to other interventions.   one text suggest the mid-cervical region (C3), mid thoracic region (T4,T6 &T9) and the mid lumbar region (L4) are the culprit areas that need to be checked and adjusted for Eczema outbreaks.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE CAN HELP WITH THESE CONDITIONS. How much we can help varies from patient to patient.
