Germ Warfare

You never have to wonder when the “cold and flu season” is around the corner. Big

Pharma will be sure that you are reminded of its impending arrival no matter where you


When the dreaded season of doom drapes its black curtain over us, whatever you do,

don’t come within sneezing distance of anybody, don’t even think about shaking anyone’s

hand or otherwise engaging in bodily contact, and NEVER, EVER touch a doorknob,

shopping cart, or any other object that might have possibly come into contact with any

human at any point during its existence.

Buy into the hype and you’ll find yourself locked away in a dark room waiting for the

hazmat team to give the “All Clear.”

Big Pharma and the medical community at large are depending on you to buy into the

hysteria; to leave the fate of your health and well­being up to the questionable workings of

chemical­laden pills and shots rather than the innate power that runs your body and the

living world around you.

The reality is that germs don’t make you sick. Rather, your body’s inability to fend off

germs and foreign invaders is what results in you succumbing to illness.

Think about it… How is it possible that a family of 5 people living under the same roof can

have completely different reactions during flu season?

Assuming that everyone is exposed to the same germs and viruses, if the sickness were

attributed completely to the virus, everyone would get sick and exhibit the same reaction

and symptoms.

What happens in reality is that one or two family members get ill while the others don’t.

Clearly the issue is not the germs, but the body’s response to them.

Chances are the last time you got sick you were running yourself ragged; missing sleep,

eating improperly, slacking on your nutrition, all stressed out from work, skipping your

acupuncture sessions, and neglecting your workouts. This is a vicious pattern that many

of us fall into and it’s one that weakens the body and allows germs to take hold.

Your best defense against the flu, colds, or any other germ­borne illness is not to drug

yourself, but to bolster your internal defenses. You stand your best chance of being at

your healthiest when you have an optimally functioning nervous system and immune


So come in for an acupuncture tune­up, keep your lifestyle habits in good order, and

maintain a positive attitude. Do so, and those pesky little germs don’t stand a chance!
