But before I end the series, I want to present you with one more article.
This article is actually not about herbal medicine, but about the swine flu and the push to get a vaccine for it.
One of the things I discussed in the last article on Herbal Approaches to the Swine Flu was the nature of viruses.
I said how because viruses can mutate, sometimes at whim, it’s not always the best thing to try and eradicate it with drugs, and that by trying to destroy it with potent medications, the virus strain can mutate into something stronger and uglier.
There is so much fear tied into the swine flu, what with it being labeled a pandemic, that people will accept what they are told and be willing to be vaccinated, if a vaccine is found.
All we have to do is look back in history, to 1976. That was the last time a swine flu pandemic occurred, and fear over what it could do then was rampant.
Vaccines were pushed and 46 million people in the U.S. got inoculated.
A significant percentage of people who had shots had adverse reactions, and many of those reactions were neurologically severe.
Here’s the deal: when you try and manipulate viruses and try and contain them, you are playing with fire, because they have the intelligence to rise up and mutate into something toxic.
And that’s why I said, in the Herbal Approaches to Swine Flu article, that an herbal approach to the swine flu is the wise thing to do.
When an herbal remedy meets a virus, it doesn’t try to eradicate the virus as much as it tries to harmonize with it and help the virus to settle down, stop mutating, and ease off on its manifestation of symptoms.
And so, I present to you the above two-part video, from 1979. The videos are from the CBS news show Sixty Minutes, and is a look at the 1976 swine flu vaccination campaign, and the adverse reactions from it.
The point of showing the video is for us to learn from the lessons of recent history.
And to help guide us to a more gentle, healthier way of living, that of a Low Density Lifestyle.
