Immu-Shot, Flu Shot Alternative, Boost Your Fighting Power, Not your Toxicity!

Dr. Heather Boyd Roberts

After I sent you the article on the potential dangers of the flu shot we received many requests for an alternative to the flu shot.

The Immu-Shot is a safe immune boosting homeopathic formulation that activates your own specific defenses against influenza, bronchitis, pneumonia, tonsillitis or other lymphatic swellings, pertussis, as well as other viral conditions.

The specific combination of homeopathic ingredients:
• Boosts your immune fighting power.
• Increase lymphatic flow and reduce congestion throughout your body.
• Aids in detoxification of your cells.
• Enhances overall function of all your immune fighting organs.

After you receive the Immu-Shot you are stronger and more able to fight off unwanted viruses on your own. Galium, one of the ingredients, provides an extra boost to your immune system in cases where chronic diseases may prevent the full function of your immune system.

We developed the Immu-Shot because of the the lack of research on the safety of the individual ingredients that are found in the flu shot. In addition, there are some ingredients that are known to not be safe, including mercury and a compound that is known to cause Gullain Barre, a severe neurological condition. Since my original article there have been numerous articles since suggesting a serious lack of effectiveness of the flu shot. The product insert claims effectiveness only against the organism that was placed in the flu shot. If you get infected by a different organism you have no extra immunity. Since the flu tends to change from year to year it’s a bit of a guessing game. In addition, there is a 30% chance that you could get the side effects that mimic the flu from the vaccination. This is listed on the product insert!

Recommended Dosage:
For those who are relatively healthy having the shot 2x/year should suffice. For those with suppressed immunity or who are chronically ill I would recommend the shot every quarter or 4x/year. You can also get the Immun-Shot right when you start developing symptoms to prevent its onset or reduce the severity of the disease.

Other Support:
In addition to the Immu-Shot using Imu-gen 5 drops once daily as an oral immune boosting support has show to be very effective against all types of infections. If you feel symptoms starting immediately get an Imu-Shot as an immediate immune boost and use Imu-gen 5 drops 4x/day and Defense-gen 5 drops up to 6x/day along with a non-ascorbic acid Vitamin C of 1000grams every 1-2 hours. I use BioPotent C due to its tolerance and effectiveness.
