Swine Flu (H1N1) and Vaccine Awareness

The subject of H1N1 flu epidemic and the vaccination against this type of flu is vast and so many information sources, including websites, are advocating pros and cons. There are two main groups trying to captivate the attention of the general public, one promoting the vaccination and the other one opposing it.

Analysis of the general trends

The first of these two opposed groups that includes government officials, researchers from pharmaceutical companies, and a big majority of medical doctors, are vehemently promoting the following concepts:

  • H1N1 poses a major risk, including death, to the general population’s health
  • Vaccination is the only efficient way to avoid the flu
  • Vaccination is secure even for small children and pregnant women
  • In some areas the spread of this virus is, or could be, so fast and out of control that it justifies general vaccination; voluntarily in the beginning, due to insufficient supply of vaccines
  • The cost of not supplying the vaccines to the general population is too high to be ignored and justifies the imposition of the vaccination.

Herbal Remedies
The other group led by medical professionals open to holistic health methods and independent researchers, including also alternative health therapists and health-conscious individuals, are advocating the opposite ideas:

  • H1N1 does not pose a health risk much greater than other type of flu
  • Vaccination is not the only way to prevent the flu
  • The side effects and the long-term implications of the vaccination are far too serious to be ignored
  • There is evidence of contaminated lots of vaccines supplied by some pharmaceutical companies
  • There is evidence that the total number of cases of H1N1 is much lower than reported by various commissions and media
  • The long-term implications of the vaccination and its associated costs are much higher than the cost of not performing a generalized vaccination.

Most of the time the opposition to the H1N1 vaccine is part of a bigger campaign, like:

  • The opposition to any type of vaccination, seen as an unnatural way to introduce viruses in the body and being the cause of the apparition of a series of new diseases in children
  • The lack of efficiency and the severe side effects of allopathic medicine in the treatment of viral and chronic diseases
  • The presence of medical errors as a top cause of death in advanced societies
  • The exposure of the outrageous profits made by pharmaceutical companies
  • The promotion of holistic or integrative medicine

Needless to say, Reiki-Do, as a partisan of all natural healing methods and especially energy healing, is firmly against the H1N1 vaccination.


Stop VaccinationSince the mainstream media (most of the TV and radio channels and most newspapers) is in the hands of the people in power, either politically or financially, who form the first group, the second group has no choice but to voice their opinion through secondary media channels, like websites, social media (FaceBook, Twitter), video-clips (YouTube) or chain e-mail. Even though the second one is only able to reach a limited number of recipients, in time it can spread in a more personal and meaningful way through the word of mouth.

Unfortunately, when exposed to both streams of information, many choose to believe the more influential one. The reasons behind this decision are based on myths like:

  • The government officials’ first priority is the well-being of the population
  • Doctors are modern health gods that always know what is best for their patients
  • The researchers in pharmacology are always right and they are always honest and ethical
  • The pharmaceutical companies’ studies are completely transparent and not-biased
  • The mainstream media is always truthful and accurate

Other decision factors of emotional nature for this category of population are:

  • Ignorance (luck of information on the flu and the vaccine)
  • Fear (social consequences of no taking the vaccine)
  • Greed (its free!)
  • Competition (selected categories of people can have it before other).

Other people chose to believe the second source of information, either intuitively or consciously for reasons like:

  • Knowledge of vaccine’s composition and side effects
  • Faith in body’s innate ability to heal itself
  • Belief in natural healing methods
  • Trust in the people who promote those ideas

Sources of information

Vaccine Viper
Since Reiki-Do does not have the necessary resources to make its own studies or to make a complete analysis of other studies, we will present a list with a few reliable sources of information on the subject:

And, on a lighter note, we recommend watching Dr. Mercola’s Hilarious Flu Video about the components of the H1N1 vaccine Eye on the Flu Shot.

    Interesting info. Some people may not pass the hilarious swine flu video so, to get to the prevention and remedies part.

    Following some suggestions, I divided the article in two smaller articles: one containing general information about the H1N1 virus and vaccine and the other one about natural solutions to prevent and treat the swine flu.
    Many thanks for the input.

    The investigative reporter behind the groundbreaking CBS News study that found H1N1 flu cases are NOT as prevalent as feared is Sharyl Attkisson.

    She started the Swine Flu trail when she received the information that CDC did not test for H1N1 serologically anymore and just counted all the flu-like cases as H1N1 and CDC would not answer her questions.

    In the interview she talks about things she uncovered like:
    – While the swine flu-like cases were still serologically tested, up to 90% were not even influenza, and the real swine flu infections number was in some places as low as 1-2%,
    – Some of the ‘independent’ studies were indirectly financed by big pharmaceutical companies.

    Sharyl Attkisson uncovers the Swine Flu Media Hype and Hysteria in an interview with Dr. Joseph Mercola on YouTube:

  All men dream: but not equally.
  Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity.
  But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible.
