I came across this article that was warning of the possible long term effects of the H1N1 vaccine and although it is not anything that I have not read before in that aspect, it did provide some great information about preventing the leading cause of death after contracting the H1N1 virus. The health expert and doctor, Dr. Blaylock, recommends taking vitamin D3 before contracting the virus along with fish oil to reduce immune over reaction. Immune over reaction is the main cause of the virus killing young people. (Although, like I said in previous articles, the mortality rate of this virus is significantly less than the usual seasonal flu.)

I looked up the uses of vitamin D3 and found that it does in fact do what the article communicated. It also assists with a wealth of other functions that would benefit your overall health anyways. And fish oil, well, I can not say enough good things about it. It states in the article, “Fish oils (the best is Carlson’s Norwegian lemon flavored fish oil) also reduce immune overreaction. One teaspoon a day should be sufficient. For severe symptoms, one teaspoon twice a day.” That too, according to my research and findings on the internet, is in harmony with the writings from Dr. Blaylock. In addition, be sure to take a daily multi vitamin for the antioxidants such as vitamins C and E. And of course, remember that good hygiene.

*As I have stated in previous H1N1 articles, I am in no way shape or form telling anyone to not get the vaccination or to not take proper hygienic precautions to keep themselves from getting this virus and others.*

The H1N1 virus has been hitting the public schools and colleges around the United States somewhat hard already this fall. And being a parent myself, I know how unnerving all of this “swine flu” information can be. As with any influenza virus, it is not something to mess around with. However, I do feel that it is being blown a bit out of proportion. I have been told by several close friends that are practicing doctors that the H1N1 virus is not as serious in typical cases as the usual seasonal flu that we are vaccinated for each year. The mortality rate is significantly lower with the H1N1 virus, and lasting effects seem so far to be minimal as well.
This has also been reported by several health organizations such as the European Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (ECDC), as seen in this report http://www.ecdc.europa.eu/en/healthtopics/Documents/0908_Influenza_AH1N1_Risk_Assessment.pdf. It is also now being reported that WHO health officials are admitting that the virus has not mutated into a more severe strain. Even as recent as September 24 at a press conference in Geneva, WHO Director of the Initiative for Vaccine Research, Dr Marie-Paule Kieny stated that “we are lucky that the pandemic is moderate in severity that most people experience a mild illness and recover spontaneously.”

It seems like such a little thing to make such a huge fuss and spend billions of dollars in getting largely untested vaccines out to the whole world. In my opinion, your best defense is still the basics. Wash your hands several times a day, especially after using the restroom and before eating or coming home from the store. Avoid large crowds when possible, and keep away from those who are suspected to have any form of illness. I like to carry the anti bacterial hand gel around so we can sanitize our hands as soon as we leave high traffic places or in case we run into the occasional public restroom out of hand soap.

Also, although there are some articles posted in which I do not share the same view point, there is a continuous flow of H1N1 information on this site:

Although the research is still in progress, there are some diseases that seem to have a good reaction to the mixture of honey and cinnamon. It is possible that this homeopathic therapy can cure things such as heart disease, obesity, bladder infections, and more. The healing properties have shown so far to be as effective or possibly more effective than your average drugs. Definitely something to look into anyways. Check it out in the article link below!

Food Shortages Coming to America

Tea-party rallies yet again this Saturday across the country.

I am by no means a doctor, or affiliated with any health organization. However, I can’t help but be a little alarmed by the sudden fear of the swine flu (H1N1) pandemic. Yes, it spread quickly and it may mutate this fall. But from what we have seen the vaccination is actually causing more deaths in a ratio aspect than the actual illness. I believe the talk of pushing the vaccination is with good intentions, but has it really been researched enough to be so widely distributed? I have a good friend that is a doctor and when the news of the swine flu had first come out had told me not to really worry about it because the mortality rate was actually lower than the typical flu virus that we have the option of being vaccinated for yearly. I am not going to immediately subject myself and my family to the H1N1 vaccination until I know more. It just seems more risky than to actually get the virus itself. What do you think?

This opinion is based on the following articles (however, I encourage you to research it more on your own):
