Medical system and health officials used to manipulate humans immune system and attempt to stimulate artificial immunity through the rapid mutating virus like influenza. In the US, about one-third of flu vaccinations (nasal spray) are given to children. And since it is needle-free, it is often preferred by pediatricians.

However, there are more questions raised than answers about the effectiveness of this flu vaccine. Based on research conducted by Dr. Joseph Mercola, children who received seasonal flu vaccination had weak immune system and increased their risk of illness or getting sick from influenza viruses. Hence, having healthy and strong immune system through nasal spray vaccine or flu shot is still quite debatable in our society today.

According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nasal spray flu vaccine has no benefit for young children and it is advisable not to use it in 2016 to 2017 flu season. The immunity issue reigned during the failure of the said vaccination last 2014 to 2015 flu season. Dr. Brendan Plannery of CDC presented the data indicating Flumist brand (nasal spray vaccine) had zero effectiveness against the strain of flu. Indeed, it is important not to mislead yourself to some vital health issues especially to children.

On the other hand, there are simple approaches to let you maintain your healthy immune system and to fight off infectious viruses. Don’t harm you gut flora by eating too much carbohydrates in the form of sugar and grains. Avoid eating processed foods and refined sugars. Make sure to ingest beneficial bacteria or probiotics, and optimize your vitamin D levels. It is also advisable to exercise and get enough sleep to keep your immune system healthy!
