Flupocalypse Part 2

Articles by Dr. Erdman are for informational purposes, and are not to be taken as specific medical advice.

Following up on the last article about the flu vaccine, we are going to analyze a brand new study which concludes that those who get a flu shot are actually the people spreading the flu the most.

This bombshell article was published in the Proceeding of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS). The study is titled “Infectious virus in exhaled breath of symptomatic seasonal influenza cases from a college community.” It was peer reviewed and approved for publication on December 15, 2017.

Flupocalypse Part 1

Articles by Dr. Erdman are for informational purposes, and are not to be taken as specific medical advice.

In the last article we considered the ineffectiveness of the flu vaccine. In this year of media dubbed “Flupocalypse”, the hysteria is again simply mindless propaganda. It is predictable.

The headlines tell us hospitals are a “war zone”, a “crisis” is here, and there is “fear” in the air. These words aren’t used without purpose, they are meant to scare the masses enough to accept and seek out treatment that is totally unproven and, in reality, is proven not to be effective.

Flu Review

Articles by Dr. Erdman are for informational purposes, and are not to be taken as specific medical advice.

If you’ve read this column for any length of time, you know a frequent topic is vaccinations of any kind, but especially the treatment for influenza, aka the flu.

Unfortunately, many people actually believe recommendations from our governments Center for Disease Control (CDC).  They supposedly help people make important health decisions. For many years they have advocated that virtually every man, women and child be vaccinated yearly for the flu.

As recently as last year the CDC recommended that “either vaccine is appropriate (the shot or the nasal spray) for people age 2 through 49.” But, in a complete reversal of itself from last year, the CDC advisory committee now says that the nasal spray vaccine, known as FluMist, NOT be used. How can it be that one year it works and the next year doesn’t?

Charcoal for Health

Articles by Dr. Erdman are for informational purposes, and are not to be taken as specific medical advice.

We are going to cover charcoal in this article. Charcoal is used as a heat source for grilling foods and used in creating metals. But that isn’t the kind I’m writing about. Did you know charcoal can have medicinal value? Egyptian records from 1500 BC show they used activated charcoal to absorb odors from infected wounds.

There is a difference between charcoal for grills, and activated charcoal for medicine. Activated charcoal is still the same burned wood, coconut shell or peat, but it has also been treated with oxygen. The medicinal charcoal is very porous and nonpolar, allowing it to bind toxins and odors from gasses or liquids that are 1000 times its weight. It is tasteless and odorless, yet still very black.

Is a Multivitamin Right for You?

Articles by Dr. Erdman are for informational purposes, and are not to be taken as specific medical advice.

Here we are at the start of a new year already. The New Year’s resolutions will be made….again. 
Getting healthier is one of the top goals for many people. Some say they will eat better, exercise more or quit eating certain foods. Many people add vitamin supplements to their diet as a part of improving health.

When looking for supplements, people want an easy and cheap way to help themselves get better nutrition. Unfortunately, neither of those can be priorities when selecting supplements.

Avoiding/Curing the Common Cold

Articles by Dr. Erdman are for informational purposes, and are not to be taken as specific medical advice.

Here we are in the midst of cold and flu season. I’ve written many articles on why you should shun the flu vaccine for good health. But, as life would have it, there are times we all succumb to the common cold virus. The old coughing, sneezing, stuffy head, sore throat and chest congestion complex is no fun at all.

Flu Shots-part 2

Articles by Dr. Erdman are for informational purposes, and are not to be taken as specific medical advice.

Here is part two of the flu shot article we started two weeks ago.  These two articles are all the proof you need to show your medical doctor why you will not be taking the flu shots again.  If you want the specific citations of the research presented, you can email me for them.  They are mostly from mainstream, peer reviewed medical journals and other professional sources.   Continuing with her paper, she writes...
