Flu shot vaccines have recently been linked to an increased risk of serious side effects and reactions including Guillain-Barré Syndrome.
Numerous studies have revealed serious flaws in immunization theory and practice. Yet, incredibly, most doctors, patients and parents are unaware of these findings and fall victim to flu shot induced Guillain-Barré Syndrome.
Guillain-Barré Syndrome & Flu Shot Reactions
Guillain-Barré Syndrome is still not fully understood by the scientific community, but it is believed that the nerve cells are damaged by a person’s own immune system. In certain cases, vaccines are thought to activate the immune system to cause damage to the nerve cells. In particular, flu shot vaccines have been consistency associated with a number of GBS occurrences.
Who is at greatest risk?
GBS is currently consider to be a rare disorder within the medical community – its incidence is approximately 1 to 2 cases in every 100,000 people annually. Men and women, young and old are equally prone to contracting the disease. Recently, the FDA and CDC reported they are investigating five reports of Guillain-Barré Syndrome in teenagers who had taken Menactra, a new vaccine for meningitis.
Because of its sudden and unexpected occurrence, Guillain-Barré Syndrome can be a devastating disorder. Those affected by GBS face not only physical challenges, but emotionally painful difficulties as well. It is often hard for patients to adjust to sudden paralysis and dependence on others for help with everyday tasks. Patients sometimes need psychological counseling to help them cope with their situation.
