I Caught the Flu And Survived

“Contrary to popular belief, there’s no scientific evidence that flu vaccines are the best way to prevent catching the flu. In fact, evidence shows that people that receive a flu vaccine transmit the disease to others at a much higher rate than those not receiving the vaccines. It’s called viral shedding. The CDC has published misleading information about the safety and effectiveness of flu shots and also about the number of deaths that occur each year because of the flu.”

I caught the dreaded flu virus several weeks ago. It had been about two and a half years since I last experienced any sickness whatsoever. And that episode had been limited to a simple cold that left me with a mild sore throat and some congestion for a few days.

A week prior to catching the flu, I had been bragging to one of my patients about how healthy I was and how I attributed my good health to eating properly, getting plenty of daily exercise and receiving regular chiropractic care. This recipe has always kept my nervous and immune systems working at a very efficient level.

Then out of nowhere, I had the damn flu.

I had been taking care of a lot of patients prior to catching the flu that had been experiencing flu like symptoms. A few of the patients I had seen even told me they had tested positive for the virus. And this was after they had taken the flu vaccine at a local drugstore down the street from my office.

This particular flu virus had me feeling pretty miserable within a few hours after the first symptoms appeared. It started quite innocently enough with me not being able to clear my throat. It then caused my throat to quickly become sore, and then the intense fever kicked in. The fever went to 104 degrees Fahrenheit and it lasted for 19 hours. I let it run its course like I always do. The fever dismantles the flu virus and actually prevents it from being able to replicate.

I drank plenty of water to prevent dehydration and secured a few blankets to keep me warm. I was shivering quite a bit. I propped myself up on a reclining chair and watched television and of course plenty of television commercials about how to fight off the flu with over-the-counter medicines.  The commercials told me I should take drugs to lower my fever, break up the congestion in my chest, dry up my runny nose, and stop my persistent coughing. WHAT A JOKE! More
