Flu Season Health Strategies

Flu Season Health Strategies
Many have been concerned about the controversy surrounding the effectiveness and side effects of the flu vaccine. The most important thing to do now to prepare for Flu season which is around January and February is to straighten your immune system I will come back to this in a moment; first I would like to address the effectiveness of flu shots.   

Flu vaccines are being manufactured now to be ready for the peak flu season.
According to Dr. Mark Stengler in his book “Natural Healing Encyclopedia” “researchers can never be absolutely sure at this early stage of manufacturing flu vaccine what strain of flu virus will prominent during the peak season; it’s a guessing game.  A premade vaccine manufactured in November 2015 may not be the right one for a 2016 virus strain. Dr. Stengler calls it “flu vaccine roulette.”

Recent studies have proven that flu vaccine that contains a preservative known as thimerosal which is laced with toxic mercury can be harmful. Mercury can damage the brain, central nervous system, immune system, thyroid along with other vital organs. This alarming research has resulted in most single-dose flu vaccine vials being mercury-free; but many multi-dose vials still contain thimerosal.

Before you get a flu shot in a pharmacy or a doctor’s office make sure you ask whether a single-dose or a multi-dose vial is being used. Also make sure you ask if the vaccine has thimerosal in it. If it is a multi-dose vial there is a high probability the mercury is in it. The reason why many people become ill after getting a flu shot is due to the many dangerous ingredients used to preserve and extend the shelf life of the flu vaccine.

There are natural strategies available to help fight the flu. At the Ki Center we use a number of flu prevention options that focus on a strong immune system. A homeopathic remedy known as Influenzinum  is often  recommended by Master Ji  during one  of her consultations on flu prevention at the Ki center. 

Influenzinum works on the same principles as flu vaccine without the toxic side effects.  It introduces a “vibratory frequency” of the strains to the body’s immune system.  A recent survey of 23 homeopathic practitioners found that 90 percent of 453 people who took Influenzinum did not get the flu.

You can purchase Influenzinum at a good health food store or you can make an appointment at the ki center to learn more about Influenzinum and other immune building flu season health strategies. For further information call 646 329-6727 or send an email to

Breathingdo Part II

Breathingdo Part II
Breathingdo means the way of breathing, or the way to breathe correctly (see Breathingdo Part I at If your chest moves when taking a deep breath you are breathing incorrectly; a bad habit developed over time due to social programing. Incorrect breathing is a major factor in most illnesses. Stress is the cause of most illnesses and incorrect breathing is the fuel that feeds stress.  Correct breathing or Breathingdo can reduce stress by bringing balance to the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS)

The ANS operates through two divisions, the sympathetic (fear, excitement, and worry) and the parasympathetic (relaxation, not frightened). When our thoughts communicate fear, the ANS sends chemical stimulants to every organ in our body making it ready to run or fight.The heart rate is increased, more blood and oxygen is sent to the brain and our sense organs. Stored sugars for energy are released by the liver. Our veins and arteries constrict, which creates a rise in blood pressure. Our skeletal muscles constrict and our breath becomes shallow and fast.

The scientific term for the combat mode produced by the ANS when we are frightened is called “fight or flight”. The parasympathetic side of the ANS will produce depressant body chemicals to reduce tension when the thought of fear is over. When we become extremely excited we usually then become severely depressed after this chronic imbalance in the ANS is what we call “stress”

When we worry and become fearful of the unknown we become stressed, the ANS has no idea that many of our fears are illusory. All too often our body is in the “fight or flight” mode for long periods of time for no real reason; a foundation for many illnesses. Abdominal breathing is a natural way to balance the ANS it is how we learned to breathe while in our womb during the early stages of our development; which is why abdominal breathing is also known as baby breathing.

At the Ki center we help individuals to relearn how to breathe correctly. It can be confusing at first but it is very simple to learn. When we inhale the chest does not move air goes directly to the stomach making it expand. The stomach contracts when we exhale, forcing all of the inhaled air out of the body. This type of slow deep breathing exercise can be used to address a number of stress related illnesses.

Abdominal breathing is also the first step in learning to meditate correctly, it is also useful in stressful situations it will allow you to maintain control.
