Detox After Flu Shot


The flu shot has a list of ingredients that you wouldn’t put into your body willingly. Formaldehyde, aluminum salts, and mercury are just a few of the scary ingredients. If you are forced to get the flu shot or if you choose to get the flu shot (no judgment) there are some things that will help your body deal with the toxic ingredients that are injected.

Vitamin C, before and after

Vitamin C is necessary for a healthy immune system. We typically don’t get enough in our diet and sugar will compete for vitamin C receptor sites so supplement with 3000 mg of vitamin C per day. In higher dosages, It can cause loose stools so take to your tolerance. I recommend this one that also has bioflavonoids that helps decrease inflammation and improve immunity. 

Choose Thimerosal-Free

Thimerosal is mercury. Mercury is a neurotoxin which means it kills off nerve cells. Your brain is made of nerve cells and if you are anything like me you can’t afford to lose them. Mercury is used in stabilizing the virus in vaccinations. Make sure you choose a thimerosal-free flu shot. Thimerosal-free flu shots can usually be found at the county health department.

Avoid Aspirin, Tylenol® and Ibuprofen

Studies have shown that using aspirin, Tylenol® and ibuprofen can decrease the bodies ability to produce the immune cells, called antibodies, needed to protect you. Since the whole reason to get the flu vaccine is to stimulate the immune system you want to be sure they are active and plentiful. If you are achy after the flu shot you can take natural anti-inflammatory compounds. Turmeric, ginger, and omega 3 oils decrease inflammation in the body. Magnesium glycinate is a natural muscle relaxant and is depleted with stress and toxin exposure. 300-400 mg once or twice a day can help with the achiness. Watch for loose stools, it’s the only side effect that may occur in higher doses.

Detox!

Take activated charcoal capsules to absorb toxins. Make sure to take it away from other medications and food.

Take a clay bath using bentonite clay. It draws out toxins.

30 minutes in a sauna will get you sweating out toxins. Be sure to hydrate.

Do our 10 or 28-day detox program. It can help your body recover from the toxins, even if you can’t avoid the thimerosal because our medical food has ingredients to help metabolize heavy metals like mercury. Take our detox quiz. If you score moderate to high, I recommend the 28-day detox. If you score low and have had a flu shot I recommend the 10-day detox.

Raise your glutathione

Glutathione is your body’s number one antioxidant. It is protective and can help remove toxins and metals found in the flu shot. Taking N-acetyl cysteine can boost glutathione. Selenium is a mineral that is also needed to support glutathione. Eating 3-5 selenium-rich brazil nuts daily can give you the amount you need.

Massage

Massage moves out toxins through the lymphatic system.

Chiropractic

Come in for spinal adjustments to keep your immune system healthy and strong. The nerve supply needs to get to your kidneys and liver adequately in order for you to detox properly. We have payment plans for both massage and chiropractic that reduces the cost of visits and can be used with other established patients like friends and family.

Here’s to a healthy immune system!

  1. Hi,
    How can I send you the detox quiz and see what my results are and how long of a detox do I need?
    I work for a major hospital in Boston and they force us to get the flu shot. I find that illegal, but there is nothing we can do if we want to keep our job.

    1. If your detox questionnaire results are mild, do a 10 day detox. If the results are moderate or severe do a 30 day detox.
      You can schedule a phone consultation with my by scheduling a new patient appointment online through this website at http://www.specificwellness.appointlet.com Once you schedule it, send any of the forms you find at https://www.specificwellness.com/forms-and-assessments-2 including the intake form to info@specificwellness.com and mention that your appointment is a phone consultation.
      I’m sorry you are subjected to that. All the more reason to detox!!

    2. I was forced to get a flu shot at my job as well and I had guillan barre for over a month and now can barely use my arm where I got the shot. Something has happened to the muscles and every time I use them ( in the left are) I ave excruciating pain and a spasm like Charlie horse that last about 5-10 seconds.

  2. Hi, I am out of town and had to get my flu shot because of my job. I have an I infant at home and my wife wants me to wait to come home because of the shedding time. If I come home on schedule it will be 5 days after the shot so I am wondering does detoxing decrease the shedding time at all?

    1. The duration of shedding is approximately 8 days. I cannot tell you that the supplements will lessen the shedding time, I haven’t seen the research on that yet. Safe travels.

  3. My daughter is a nurse and has been required to take the flu shot today. She already has a headache and feels nauseous. What can I tell her to relieve her symptoms if she can’t take any pain relievers? I have told her to buy the things you mentioned above.

    1. I’m so sorry she is going through that. At the very least have her take epsom salt baths for at least a week with 1 cup of epsom salt and soak for 20 to 30 minutes. The supplements will help greatly. Hope she feels better soon.

  4. Hi!
    I did flu shot October 16 and since October 25 I have low grade fever 99.1-100.5 for over a month now and headache, tiredness, increased heart rate. General blood test came out normal, also they tested me for Lyme, STD, autoimmune disorders, TB, I haven’t received the results yet, next week also have an apt with GI and want to schedule an apt with internist. Can it be reaction after flu shot 9 days later? Could flu shot wake up some chronically issue?

    1. I’m so sorry you are going through this. Yes, I do believe that the flu shot can stimulate your immune system to the point of dysfunction. You may also have triggered a recurrence of an underlying virus. If you would like to schedule an online consultation, I’m happy to help you navigate this while you are gathering information.

  5. Hi I am breaking put everyday and getting sick very often after a flu shot, my skin burns and rashes up I have stars on m.h y palms of my hand that are painful

    1. The flu shot can have some strange effects on people. It may be that or it may be something else. Make an appointment with me and we can figure it out or find a functional medicine doctor.

  6. I’m trying to research beforehand, in case we’re forced to take a covid vaccine. my first idea, activated charcoal. Then i questioned if it would work, since vaccines go straight into the arm. Activated charcoal seems pull stuff out of the gut, before it’s absorbed into the blood stream. If it could work, i’m guessing take it the same time as getting a vaccine? I would appreciate your opinion on this.

    1. You are correct, activated charcoal is for the gut not the bloodstream. You want to concentrate of supporting a healthy immune system. A diet of organic vegetables and healthy (grass fed) organic protein. Vitamin A, C, D, Selenium, N-Acetylcysteine, Quercitin and zinc with a balanced diet and healthy probiotics and fats. Exercise 30 minutes daily, Sleep well, positive thoughts and maintain a healthy weight and healthy blood sugar.

  7. Hello, My dad got the flu shot 2 months ago and within hours he was bed ridden and by 3 days on oxygen. He has interstitial lung disease however it was well under control with diet and was healthy otherwise. He went from being active to barely walking 20 feet and having what looks like breathing spasms. Have you heard of the flu shot exaggerating pre-existent conditions? Is there anyway to help him naturally since his doctor has decided he is just sick from his pre-existing Disease and only wants to give him more medication with a lot of side effects. He is still on oxygen. Thank you.

  8. Hi I reached this page searching for a way to detox after the flu shot. I took a flu shot Oct. 27, 2020. I had fevers, then hives, then anaphylaxis. I’ve been on steroids, Singulair, Xolair, now Allegra x 4, Pepcid, Xyzal and Doxepin every day. Nothing helps my hives. They are tolerable after I take my pills but in the morning, I wake up with swollen eye lids or lips, or a constricted throat. My allergist wants to put me on cyclosporin since Xolair didn’t work. Can you recommend anything that may help me?

    Thank you.

    1. Two suggestions. Find a functional medicine doctor in your area to run specialized labs for you and/or find a practitioner that does NAET.

  9. Hi, thanks for all answers and to give us some light in this unknown and obscure area of vaccination. I’ve just taken the single dose J&J covid vaccine. My plan is to support my imune system with plenty of good food plus supplements (quercetin, zinc, vitam C).. Would you recommend chloream and coriander as well? I’m also wondering if daiy sauna would be recommend. If so for how long days? Thanks!

    1. All of that is good to do for normal healthy detox. Polyethylene glycol and polysorbate 80 are the only extra ingredients in these injections. There is not a particular detox for them although I would recommend you get the rest you need, hydrate well with clean water and eat a low carbohydrate balanced diet full of unprocessed proteins, organic plants and healthy oils. Keep your stress level low since high cortisol can increase blood sugar, blood pressure and use up your B vitamins that are needed for proper and routine detoxification.

  10. Also try cilantro, supposedly absorbs toxins too from blood steam. I’m going to start activated charcoal (and cilantro) this week. I don’t take flu shot but had to take the J&J Covid vaccine due to travel.

    1. Cilantro is a great heavy metal chelator as well. Activated charcoal is good for removing toxins, just make sure you don’t take it with other supplements or medication because it can cause them to be less effective. Also, don’t take it for weeks on end as it can absorb your much needed nutrients.

  11. Can you please tell me a detox for the new V 19 and what’s your opinion of alpha lipoic acid and mushroom blends play in a part in detox my job maybe be forcing . Me and I’m going to get prepared.. we appreciate everything you do

Keep your stress level low since high cortisol can increase blood sugar, blood pressure and use up your B vitamins that are needed for proper and routine detoxification.

      Alpha lipoic acid helps prevent cell damage and is most commonly used to improve diabetic neuropathy because of its antioxidant properties and ability to break down carbohydrates.

      Mushrooms!!! So great!!! Not only are they great at immune boosting but they have anti microbial properties as well.

  12. Hello, what would you recommend to detox for a 4 year old who received the flu shot?

    Not sure if this is a side effect but after the shot he woke up twice in the night crying. Once back to sleep was snoring with some congestion.

    Thanks
