Have you had your flu shot yet? Are you planning on getting one? Maybe you avoid them? This is a hard decision to make for some people. Others have very definite opinions about getting vaccinations or not.
Flu Shot + Probiotics
I won’t be getting a flu shot again this year. I’m on high powered antibiotics for a sinus infection once again. That means the flu shot would not work on me. This time it’s MRSA. I’m struggling again with the weakness the antibiotics bring on and the sleeplessness from the steroids I’m taking. I’m using the probiotics now to keep from having candida issues with the antibiotic. So far it’s working well. Fingers crossed it continues to forestall that problem.
I’m using my DIY RubyLux light bulb sauna every day, too. The infrared rays should help my mitochondria work as well as possible. Hopefully the infrared lamps will eliminate some of the toxins these medicines produce in my body. And I’m flushing out my system with lots of filtered water.
But for now I’m not exercising very much. I just don’t feel like it.
I will say I’m not anywhere near as sick with this infection as I was last year when I had one sinus infection after another. The skull base surgery I had on my sinuses this July has improved my overall immune system. And I am sure my improved diet and other strategies I’m using from The Energy Blueprint* have a lot to do with the milder time I’m having this year, too.
I hope you’re getting through this season without the crud that so many people around here are dealing with right here at Christmas time. And if you do plan to get a flu shot, please consider the advice from Examine.com*.
