Natural Immunity and Artificial Immunity ~ The Beacon for Nov. 3, 2011

Inside of you are an astonishing 70,000,000,000,000 cells all living in perfect order and harmony.  You are a living community of cells.  Wait, there is more.  Inside you there are an additional 700,000,000,000,000 viruses and bacteria.  Wow! You are not only a living community but you are a living ecosystem!  
99.9% of bacteria and viruses are good or do no harm, which means that only 0.1% are harmful.  Seems we’ve been focused on a select minority!  These good bacteria and viruses do many important things that help to keep us alive; in fact you wouldn’t be here without them.  They help to digest our food, they release vitamins and nutrients, they help to digest old diseased tissue (like garburators), and they take up residence so the really bad bacteria and viruses don’t (similar concept to planting a crop to crowd out the weeds in a field).
“Sterility is the property of dead things”.   
~Dr. Norm Detillieux
Your immune system has two primary jobs to carry out.  The first is to determine who you are and who you are not; a state of the art ecosystem surveillance.   The second part is to determine whether the entity that is not you is beneficial (or at least will do no harm) or if it is a concern.  Just imagine how sophisticated your body operates for this to continuously occur with all of the 700,000,000,000,000 good germs inside you leaving them alone, and focusing on only the small bunch that truly needs to be eliminated.  Your immune system has been evolving since the beginning of time, it is encoded in your DNA, it learns and grows each and every time you come in contact with a new germ (via a natural, T-cell dominated response), and is passed down from mother to child through her blood and her milk.  Wow, how amazing you are!
Now let’s compare this with a vaccine that has been made in a laboratory, then rushed into production due to the seasonal time pressures, not to mention other incentives.  A vaccine that contains thimerisol, a mercury compound, which is known to be a cause of Autism, among other things.  A vaccine injected directly into your blood stream, bypassing the normal route of entry, causing a sudden and dramatic (B-cell dominated) response and disrupting the natural balance of your immune system.  This response via an injection doesn’t last in your body (or your future generations’) to meet the same virus with life-long immunity. In fact the disruption it causes further compromises your natural immune system.  Instead of stretching and building your immunity, like exercise, it stunts the growth… A very different response, indeed!
 “The most important and fundamental question you need to look at
in your life is this: 
Do I live in a friendly or a hostile universe? Which is it?”   ~Albert Einstein
Please don’t get me wrong, this article is not anti-vaccines.  I am pro-information, an advocate of self-responsibility and personal choice and most importantly pro healthy living.  This fall I encourage all of us to bring back into focus the brilliance and intelligence of our own natural, innate immune system and to look at all of the pieces of the picture of this “flu season” including and especially those that we can do naturally and safely.   
As a community, let’s wake up to truth.  The truth is you are the best protection against the flu virus, that you have the secret serum inside you, and that millions of people will get the flu and will not die! (Possibly include stats of # who had flu shots got sick next year, who didn’t get shot and didn’t get sick)
Taking proactive steps to build your immune system naturally is always your best course of action, and it isn’t rocket science – you really CAN do this!  Eat your fruits and veggies, preferably raw and in season.  Get some exercise, laugh a little - have some fun, and de-stress (getting stressed is one of the least effective things to do).  It would be wise to book a chiropractic adjustment and see other natural health providers for immune building support.  Did you know – people under regular chiropractic care have a 200% stronger immune system compared to people who do not receive chiropractic care? 
When it comes down to it, are you going to invest and support the natural wisdom of your body, the wisdom that has been with you since the beginning of time, or rely solely on some secret potion that has been created in a laboratory?
