Flu Shot Statistics and Alternatives

Flu season is upon us. It’s time to decide if you or your children will receive a flu shot this year. After all, 23,607- 35,000 people die from the flu each year, right? You don’t want to be included in this year’s statistics! But are those numbers accurate?

Flu Shot Flu Vaccine

You’re not going to find any clear answers from the CDC. If you start drilling down, searching for the actual numbers of flu victims, flu deaths, and the efficacy of the vaccine on their website, suddenly nothing is clear – except the fact that the vaccine industry is a big business and the CDC does a superior job of hiding actual facts and figures under a mountain of doublespeak.

How to Heal Migraine Headaches Naturally

Migraine headache pain can be searing and is often debilitating. It frequently causes frustrating visits to the emergency room as well. While medical treatments sometimes help relieve the painful symptoms, they fail to correct the underlying cause. As a result, the migraines continue relentlessly. They can literally change the way you live you life and rob you of much freedom and joy. However, they do not have to prevent you from the joy of living your life! It may seem impossible now but you can overcome migraine headaches!  

Migraine Headaches

As a chiropractic physician, I have heard many horrific stories of pain and disability from migraine sufferers. I have taken care of teenagers who have had to quit playing sports or even had to be taken out of school altogether. I have taken care of adults who have lost their jobs or had to quit their job because of the pain and dysfunction. While I have helped hundreds of people overcome migraine headaches, I can only imagine dealing with this type of pain personally.

My goal has always been to help each person identify the underlying cause of the migraine. The cause of migraines is poorly understood by the medical community.  As a result, most drugs and other medical treatments tend to focus solely on the symptoms and leave the cause uncorrected. Many different drugs(1) have been used to prevent and treat migraines and all of them come with dangerous side effects.

However, correcting the cause brings long term relief and allows you to restore your life. Finding and correcting the cause is the key to healing any health condition, including migraine headaches. There is no medical cure or magic pill but there is healing for the migraine headache sufferer.

Let’s take a look at some of the most common underlying causes that interfere with normal healing. Correcting these causes has brought relief to hundreds of migraine sufferers in my practice and I know that it can help you as well.

Wouldn’t you like to exempt yourself from the ‘flu season’? You can – by building a flu proof immune system!

Alternative Medicine Is Not Wellness

You may be surprised to hear me say that alternative medicine is not wellness. As you read this article, it may seem like a minor point however, it is very important. Without this distinction, it becomes very easy to lose sight of true health and makes it difficult to achieve wellness. In our society, increasingly overwhelmed by information, we can easily be misinformed and begin to confuse concepts and ideas. Clarifying these two related, yet distinct, concepts will give you a better understanding of real health and help you in your journey to wellness.
