Study exposes why the flu shot fails
If I were an “I told you so” kind of guy, I’d be losing my voice this time of year.
Every winter, I caution my patients against the flu shot and remind them of my science-backed immune-boosting protocol.
And every winter, I inevitably get calls from patients who don’t follow my advice and get the flu shot anyway – and come down with the flu.
So, I patiently explain…again…that the flu shot offers only LIMITED protection against SOME strains of the flu, and that studies have shown it can actually lead to WORSE cases of flu when you do get sick.
And now, the latest research backs my advice once again, showing that the flu shot is simply no match for the wily and ever-changing flu virus.
When the strains of flu covered by the shot match the dominant strains making people sick, mainstream medicine considers it a “perfect match.”
But as it turns out, the match doesn’t really matter much – and it’s far from perfect.
Because people exposed to flu aren’t always sickened by the main strain. When you’re exposed to the flu, it’s not just the dominant flu virus – it’s also several OTHER viruses that can ALSO give you the flu but are considered so “minor,” they’re not covered by any vaccine.
Those little guys, though, are lesser in name only – they can make you feel just as miserable as the “dominant” bugs.
Don’t bother putting your faith in the flu shot. Try instead a daily regimen of N-acetylcysteine (NAC), especially if you’re prone to getting the flu. Just 600 mg twice a day has proven to prevent illness even when you’re exposed to the virus.
If you happen to get sick anyway, up the dose to 2,000-3,000 mg per day to ease the symptoms and help you get better quicker.
