I’m not one to get super political or to bring up controversial topics – not in person and not on my blog, but times are changing and today I have to share. You see, I believe that we can and should each make our own decisions, no matter the topic but I also believe we need to make informed decisions and be sure we’re doing what we believe to be best for ourselves and for our families.
If you asked me a few years ago if I would get a vaccine, I wouldn’t really have any reason to say no other than I don’t like shots. But since working for my current employer, I’ve been subjected to a different view and more information about vaccines (and other health related topics) that I never knew.
And since we’re gearing up for Flu Season and the talks about the “importance” of getting a flu shot are all over, I just wanted to do my part and share this article published in Mind Body Green the other day. I shared it via my Facebook page and Twitter but I wanted to take it a step further, take a step outside of my comfort zone and spark this conversation.
I read that article and personally, I don’t want to put those things in my body. I will continue to get regular adjustments from my chiropractors to boost my immune system; I will take care of my body with proper nutrition, exercise and sleep; and if I begin to feel under the weather, I will care for my body with natural supplements and more rest.
I will not be getting a flu shot.
But at the end of the day, I’m not going to tell you to do one thing or the other but I want you to make your own informed decisions.
