Deliberate Self Care: Flu Prevention
No flu shots for us this year. We've had two scary-bad reactions two years in a row. The first time I thought it was a fluke. But the second time I realized it was a pattern. Fool me once, fool me twice....
Our pediatrician recommended we go with homeopathic reinforcements this year. When it comes to medicine, I tend to be old school traditional, but old school traditional has let us down in this department. So muco coccinum here we come.
The statistics on it look pretty promising: 88% effective in preventing the flu. Fingers crossed--'cuz nothin' makes you feel crappier than feeling crappy when the weather's crappy.
