There was a time when we did as we were told. We listened to our parents, teachers, and authority in all its faces and adhered to the rules of the day. As youngsters it was an appropriate and accepted way of conduct.
Today, much of what we were taught has been turned upside down. The voice of today’s society rings of topsy-turvy counsel. Instead of work first and play later, our world entreats us to play first.
Instead of buying a home that we can afford, we’re encouraged to borrow beyond our means. Instead of firm discipline in the home, we’re directed by faddish psycho-babble to give our kids “space” and privacy.
I say it’s time to turn back the clock…or perhaps swing it forward. Whatever the direction, it’s time we take back control of our lives and use common horse sense.
For example, does it make sense to get a flu shot that may be made from the wrong strain?
This is a frequent occurrence. Since the epidemiologists do not know which strain is forthcoming each flu season, they make a soup of the latest microorganisms. Then it’s injected directly into the bloodstream.
Interestingly, many who are vaccinated get the flu anyway—either in spite of or perhaps because of the vaccine itself.
And, what about the connection between the flu shot and muscle pain? It has been clinically noted that when healthy patients yield to flu shots in autumn, they succumb to fibromyalgia by winter or spring.
Fibromyalgia is one of the symptoms of the flu!
Remember the achy joints and bones that come with the flu? That’s fibromyalgia. The short-lived achiness that accompanies the flu becomes a full-fledged chronic condition when the immune system is tampered with as it is with a vaccine.
Indeed, I think we’ve lost perspective.
Why not simply take a gentle homeopathic remedy that works better and more delicately and politely on the system?
Consider Oscillococcinum (pronounced: oh-sill-oh-cock-sign-um). It happens to be the #1 over-the-counter and prescription medication in France—a place where homeopathy is highly regarded by the medical profession as well as by lay people.
But the reason for its popularity is simple–it works.
Oscillococcinum is made from the heart and liver of a waterfowl, and is particularly useful for the onset of colds and flu that come on in the wet season, such as in fall or spring.
If taken at the onset of a cold, it will usually stop it dead in its tracks.
But here is the best part: if taken as a prophylactic, say, once per week for four weeks and then once each month until the flu season is over, it will usually protect you and your family from the flu.
If indeed the person still gets a cold or flu after taking this remedy, it will often ensure a much milder episode.
This is rational medicine.
No side effects.
No questionable ingredients.
Do you need another reason to take this remedy?
How about a cost of less than $19?
I certainly wouldn’t want to dictate what you ought to do for the upcoming season.
That would put me in the same category as proselytizing drug manufacturers. However, this little lesson may just convince the staunchest advocates of modern medicine of the power of homeopathy.
Consider each and decide for yourself.
Drugs or homeopathy?
For my clients, family and me, the decision is straightforward– homeopathy for gentler, more capable results.
