Shape Up and Beat the Flu

January 30, 2018

Flu vaccine is not the #1 prevention, despite media claims. At best, it may offer protection from the three most prevalent strains of flu. However, with the tremendous influx of world travelers, new strains of flu are presented to us daily.

Flu doesn’t mess around. Flu virus has a strong addiction to sugar. It absolutely thrives on ice cream, sodas, sweetened juices, candy, fries, and processed foods. Flu virus just can’t survive when people drink plenty of tap water or lemon water, eat plenty of whole foods, intact as nature made them, and log in eight hours of sleep each night. This routine is the #1 prevention.

It’s that simple. We do not have to have a nasty bout with the flu. It’s up to us.

 Flu vaccine may be 60 percent effective. Flu vaccine may tend to make people feel protected and therefore impervious to the three strains of flu included in the vaccine. People may ignore early signals of sore throat and the general feeling of “I’m coming down with something.”

Each of us must take responsibility not to pass the flu around. Flu virus thrives on sugar. The reason flu gets a stronghold is because as a civilization, we have increased our sugar consumption to outrageous amounts in the last 70 years alone. Sugar has gradually, stealthily, been added to just about everything we put in our mouths. Even when there was a sugar bowl on every kitchen table, we did not consume the huge quantity of sugar that has spawned so many conditions, in addition to leaving us in a weakened state to fight flu viruses.

Pharmacies have become the new sub-clinics. As a nation, we seem to be accepting chronic illness as a way of life instead of as a wake-up call to shape up and deal with our addiction to sugar. We lead the world with poor health as a result of our addiction. Over 1600 years ago, Hippocrates advised people to “Let your food be your medicine.” Imagine how different our lives could be if we followed that sage advice.

Massive changes begin with small steps; sugar was added in small steps; pharmacies expanded in small steps. Our bodies do need natural forms of glucose for energy. Small steps toward healthier forms of glucose might begin with including one piece of fresh fruit each day and one fresh vegetable eaten raw or cooked. Habits change by adding something new, not by taking away the old. The new makes change possible, is more inviting. With every small new step, a bit of the old sloughs off and change happens.

Here’s to shaping up with lots of small steps!
