There is no guarantee of prevent getting the flu with a flu shot.  It currently carries three strains of the flu and lots of chemicals (formaldehyde, aluminum, and mercury, egg protein, antibiotics, and MSG) that cause other illnesses.  See my post on What-is-in-Vaccines? for detailed information on the hidden dangers of vaccines.  Building immunity naturally is best for your health.  Here are 7 ways you can build immunity and prevent the flu this year.

1.  Sleep 7-9 hours per night especially during the winter months.  Getting to bed at a regular time, preferably before 11 p.m. helps build melatonin reserves and keeps the body rested. Melatonin aids sleep and is an antioxidant.  If you have problems sleeping, take a melatonin supplement one hour before going to bed. Read my posting HOW TO GET A GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP for more suggestions.

National Prepardness Month: Put Your Preps to the Test with 24 Hours Unplugged

Put your preps to the test with 24 hours unplugged

It’s National Preparedness Month, and the Professional Prepared Bloggers Association is celebrating by providing you with tons of information from some of the best writers in the niche in our 30 Days of Preparedness round-up!

It’s Day 28!!!! It’s time to take your game up a notch with 24 hours unplugged! No fair doing this on a day when you will be away from your normal activities anyway – you want to put your preps to the test!

A grid down scenario doesn’t have to be a massive EMP that detonates over the middle of the country, throwing us back to the 1800s.  It can be as simple (and likely) as a winter storm, a hurricane, or a computer issue at your local power station. While this is a fairly common occurrence, many people still seem taken completely by surprise when it happens. Without back-up heat, cooking methods, and lighting, the unprepared family could be in for a very unpleasant time until the lights come back on. Every family should be prepared for a minimum of two weeks without power.  Nearly 2000 families were still without power 94 days after Superstorm Sandy hit the East Coast.

Here’s why you should test your preps.
