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
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!
