Flu Season is upon us and the annual debate about Vaccines is in the air. Some people have a strong aversion to them, and others swear by them. There is, however, one thing that everyone agrees on – which is “we all should prepare ourselves”.
There are four strategies to employ immediately – get good, solid 8 hour night’s sleep; eat healthy food with a good serving of veggies, drink plenty of water; and wash and sanitize your hands regularly. Just doing these 4 things will give you the upper hand when it comes to preventing that nasty bug and boosting your immune system.
At Pure5 Wellness, we offer an alternative to a standard vaccine – and that is the Naturopathic Flu Shot. This naturally boosts your immune system, and sends your antibodies into beast mode. It is a solid preventative measure, and extremely effective when combined with the above 4 strategies…good sleep, healthy eating, drink water, wash your hands!
Pure5 Wellness Hub’s Naturopathic Doctor – Dr Lindsey Jesswein, and our Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncturist – Jahyun (Jennifer) Kim,R.Ac, both of whom specialize in administering Booster Shots, have Naturopathic FLU SHOTS available. It is not a “one size fits all” formulation, and so there are several methods and formulas available.
Our Naturopathic Flu Shot is administered subcutaneously by needle. This is a hypodermic application into the muscle/tissue just under the surface of the skin. This process will only take approximately 10 minutes.
Book your consultation with Either Dr. Jesswein, or Dr. Kim, they will be able to create a booster shot tailored for you based upon your state and condition of health. It is a thorough and personal interaction that is based upon your needs. Naturopathic Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) have very personal and interactive forms of assessment and treatment, methods that are not often found in mainstream medical practice.
So remember – Boosting your immune system is the most effective way to prevent the flu, in order to do that – you have to give your body the vitamins and nutrients it needs to function. Interestingly enough, even the healthiest diets rarely provide a body the optimal levels of vitamins and nutrients it needs to function.
Our digestive system isn’t perfect, and at times it can be quite inefficient. A recent paper by nutrition specialist Monica Reinagel, has indicated that we could be absorbing as little as 10% of the nutrients available in any of the food we eat. Why is this an issue? Digestion is how our body breaks down food into nutrients, which our body uses for energy, growth, and cell repair.
This same process is used for anything we consume orally, meaning many of the expensive supplements we’re consuming could just be an expensive trip to the bathroom.
At Pure5 Wellness, we bypass the digestive system and give your body the key nutrients it needs administered internally. B12 shots and Vitamin IV dripsare natural ways to avoid the flu. They boost your body’s immune system, helping you fight off any virus you encounter. As a natural flu shot alternative, they can be administered efficiently while providing no risk to contracting the virus. Call us and book an appointment
