Flu Season - Skip the Shot!

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

Here we are at that time of the year which those in the medical community call ‘Flu Season.’  Most people never question why it always occurs at this time of the year.  Most people never ask why they got the flu right after getting the shot.  If you ask your doctor, they will typically reply that you would have been worse had you gotten the flu without the shot.  I’d like them to show me a study that has ever come to that conclusion.  They can’t, because it’s impossible to do!  So why do you believe it?  I hear so many people tell me they got the flu soon after getting the flu shot.  Medicine says that’s not possible, it’s a killed virus.  Then why does it seem to happen so many times?

Do you know what’s in a flu shot?  It’s a slurry of many things, but the most toxic ingredient is Thimerosol.  It is 49% mercury by volume.  Mercury is a known and proven neurotoxin.  It is particularly damaging to young brain cells.  The EPA says mercury has a safe limit of 0.1 micrograms (mcgs) per kilo of body weight, per day.  Each shot contains about 12 mcgs of mercury, which, by EPA standards is unsafe for anyone weighing less than 265lbs.  If the EPA says it’s not safe to eat or breathe that much, why is it safe to inject directly into your blood stream, bypassing all the natural detoxification methods of the body?

Laser Therapy

Light Amplified by Stimulated Light Emission of Radiation

Have you heard about the latest advance in pain relief?  It is called Class IV high power cold laser therapy.  Let’s take a look at the history of light therapy, what laser therapy is, what physiologic changes occur, what conditions benefit from its use and its safety and effectiveness.

Laser is an acronym.  It stands for Light Amplified by Stimulated Light Emission of Radiation.  It was theorized by Albert Einstein in 1916, invented by Theodore Maiman in 1960.  In 1967 Endre Mester discovered the bio stimulatory properties of laser light.

Therapeutic lasers are used for the stimulation of cell function.  Their biological effect is photo chemical not thermal, as is the case with surgical lasers.  A class IV laser delivers therapeutic doses of light to large areas in a short period of time.  These wave lengths of light that are used are not new.  Initially, bulbs producing the therapeutic wave lengths were used, but they were of lower power, about 5 milliwatts, and treatment times were measured in hours.  High power lasers have up to 15 watts of power and treatment times are measured in minutes.
