Flu season is just about here and I often hear people saying they’re getting the flu shot or need to go get one, but not me! I’m protecting myself from the flu naturally by taking a super nutrient packed mixture that I like to call nature’s flu shot!
This recipe contains fresh real food ingredients that will naturally boost your immune system and help protect you from the flu. I use a combination of eating a highly nutritious diet and supplementing with this nature’s flu shot in place of getting a flu shot, which can be hazardous to your health.
Why Flu Shots Cause More Harm than Good
Many people follow their doctors’ advice to get a flu shot without thinking twice, but do they even know what’s being injected into their body or the side effects it can cause? As with most medications and vaccines that physicians push, they rarely ever mention the harmful effects they can cause.
Flu vaccines contain toxic ingredients such as heavy metals and mercury. This past year, genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) have also been added to list of harmful ingredients in flu shots.
According to this study, flu vaccines only prevent the flu in 1.5% of adults. Flu shots also come with serious health risks including: immunosuppression, increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease, neurological disorders, autoimmune diseases, neurological disorders, seizures, miscarriages, and death.
Nature’s Flu Shot Can Aid in Preventing the Flu Naturally!
There are several ways to help prevent the flu naturally and one of the best ways is to boost your immune system with real food, in addition to getting adequate sleep and limiting stress.
What’s in this recipe? Super food ingredients including: turmeric, cayenne pepper, ginger, raw honey, and lemon. Turmeric is a super-spice that contains a high amount of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, which stimulate the immune system. Ginger and raw honey are also powerful immune boosters that have antibiotic effects and are effective in fighting inflammation.
With all of these ingredients combined, this nature’s flu shot is the ultimate immune boosting remedy.
Nature’s Flu Shot Recipe
- 1 fresh lemon
- 3-5 garlic cloves (crushed)
- 1 tablespoon raw honey (see it here)
- 1/2 tablespoon ginger (preferably fresh and grated)
- 1/8 teaspoon cayenne powder (see it here)
- 1/8 teaspoon turmeric (see it here)
- 1 cup of water
How to Take Nature’s Flu Shot:
Combine all ingredients and stir well.
I usually make this nature’s flu shot fresh each day. When the ingredients are consumed fresh, they contain the most nutrients. The recipe comes out to being about a cup of super nutrient packed juice, so instead of taking it all at once, I take about 1/4 cup at a time, several times throughout the day!
