I was wonder what the percentages were for full, partial sun.
I suppose the common cold, a virus, is mostly responsible.
I've seen the posting before.
I take vitamin c. I take vitamin d.
A few years ago my hip was causing major problems. I attribute taking
vitamin d along with other minerals making it 95% better.
I got my flu shot.

This person is qualified as an osteopath (bonesetter) i.e. neither a GP
nor an epidemiologist.

The doctor may be a nutcase, but Osteopathic doctors are far more than
bone setters. Could you be thinking of orthopedic?
My wife's cardiologist is a DO. We trust him with her life and he has
done good so far.
Let's get the facts straight here. I happen to be a board certified
Orthopedic Surgeon. I have an M.D. and spent 5 1/2 years in post
medical school internship and residency training. I could not even sit
for the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery's certification exam until
I had several years of documented clinical experience, including
documentation of operations performed, etc. My formal education trained
me to be substantially more than just a "bone setter" and in my clinical
practice I diagnosed and treated a wide spectrum of congenital,
infectious, malignant, inflammatory, and degenerative diseases of the
musculoskeletal system in addition to traumatic injuries. My training
taught me to recognize when some of my patient's complained of symptoms
that were caused by non-orthopedic problems and required treatment by
other specialists for effective resolution. I don't know where anyone
gets the idea that orthopedic doctors are merely "bone setters". As for
nutcases, I've known many nut cases and there is no correlation between
academic credentials and wrong-headed thinking.
As far as what you say about osteopaths, I strongly and completely
support your comments with one caveat: prior to about 25-30 years ago,
the formal training of osteopaths was substantially inferior to that of
M.D.s. That has not been the case for many decades. Most osteopaths
don't even specialize in the diseases of the musculo-skeletal system and
the one's I've known are fully equivalent to M.D.s in every respect.
He's spewing BS. Get the shot. Recent research has also shown that
getting the shots reduces heart problems by 50% in older people. Most
heart problems are caused by inflammation of various kinds and the flu
shots, besides preventing the flu, also reduce coronary inflammation
that you wouldn't even notice till the heart problem became acute.

transplant. Has not have any problem taking the flu shots. WW

They want to scare people into getting it, because it brings in BIG
MONEY. Hell, every pharmacy in my area is littered with signs saying
"Flu shots available".
I got one of them once, back in the 1970s. I got very sick from it.
I've never gotten one since. I generally get a cold or two each winter,
and sometimes what they call the flu. I'm just getting over a stomach
issue that lasted about 4 days and made me quite ill, but it's going
away, and I'll live. Even if I could get the shot free, I would not
take it again.
Then too, I have often wondered if those shots could contain some sort
of drug that makes a person act in a certain way, for example, vote for
a certain political party, or join some religion, or even buy certain
products. I have never trusted the government and all of this is
possible. For all I know, it could contain a substance that makes
elderly people die sooner so the govt. dont have to pay as much social
All of this reminds me of the antidepressant drugs that doctors seem to
hand out like candy these days, even for other illnesses such as
migraine headaches, arthritis and other ailments. That crap most
definately changes a persons mental state, and easily could be used to
make people act in a specific way. I've been offerred that shit for
both migraines and arthritis, and I flat out refuse to take it. I've
told more than one doctor that I'll rather deal with the headaches or
pain than the side effects of that garbage medication.
There is a lot of overprescribing, and folks need to know what their
meds will do in the way of dosing and side effects. Flu is a killer, in
addition to being an economic problem (for those who care) in lost work
days....I've taken care of lots of folks with pneumonia resulting from
flu, generally elderly who get the worst of it. Worst flu epidemic I
can remember was in 1970 when our hospital was full to capacity and had
beds in the hallway and I was pregnant. Came close to miscarrying,
which is another big hazard and not well known.
