Avoiding the Flu and the Flu shot

We are in the mist of Flu season. It last from October all the way until March. During that time frame many changes take place. Those changes begin to affect our bodies and it’s ability to fight off viruses and infection. Many people flock to get a shot that is suppose to prevent the flu, but somehow many of those same people still experience it. I know that was the case for me for a long time. It never failed. A day or two after receiving the flu shot, I would end up sick. Eventually I got tired of the trend and started finding alternatives for myself. Now this is the time I usually use spices, fruits, and vegetables that I wouldn’t normally consume. For instance, I typically use garlic because it’s good for fighting infection and removing toxins from the body. Too much garlic too often can lead to a hole forming in the stomach because it is so acidic. Also pineapples are a great choice because they help to clear up the sinus cavity and flush the body. Again with it being so acidic, it is not a food I typically consume, only when I want to get rid of symptoms of the cold or flu. Over the years I’ve created several juice, tea, and smoothie recipes that are sure to prevent any flu or knock it out of your body faster than any medication. Sometimes if I feel that I’m starting to feel really bad. I’ll sleep with onions and garlic in my socks. This really works because they both remove toxins from the body and onions purifies the blood.
