I recently interviewed Dr. Gerald Pollack for my radio show (Healthy YOU! Radio) for the fourth time in the last 6 years. I am fascinated by his work. He’s a professor at the University of Washington and has been experimenting on water for most of his career.

This is the season when I get multiple calls and emails about how to treat and/or prevent colds and the flu. Just today I received an email asking my opinion on the flu shot and whether I recommend it. There are few subjects outside of religion and politics that polarize people like “to vaccinate or not to vaccinate.” I base my opinions on science, both time tested from ancient times like Ayurvedic Medicine, and modern evidence that is used in Functional Medicine.
So here’s my answer: I do not recommend the flu shot. (more…)
