An interesting discovery
In a recent study, the
Bizarrely, this remarkable discovery was immediately cosmetised and given a new
The initial finding was considered "surprising" to say the least, and was immediately praised as potentially helpful in finding new ways to increase the effectiveness of flu vaccines.
It is already well known that the annual flu vaccination is by no means effective. The lack of effectiveness of flu vaccines has been attributed to the assumption that many different viral strains are involved.
Then, in order to mitigate the liability of vaccine manufacturers, the lack of effectiveness of influenza vaccines was also immediately attributed to individual deficiencies of patients, the adverse reaction following vaccination being judged to be different for each individual and constituting the specific individual protective immune response.
The premises of a revealing study
Researchers at the University of Nottingham (UK) s-
The researchers started from the premise that both beneficial behaviour and psycho-
Sleep, stress, physical activity, psycho-
At present, modern medicine considers that little is known about the relative importance of these psycho-
Conducting the study
Knowing that older adults are particularly affected by influenza and also knowing that they have a delayed immune response after vaccination, the team of British researchers recruited 138 adults aged 65-
Data started to be collected 2 weeks before vaccination. Study participants were
On the day of vaccination, participants completed a questionnaire about their psycho-
After collecting and processing the data the team of researchers found that only one of all the factors they tracked influenced the level of antibodies in the blood samples, namely the psycho-
"We have found that as long as the psycho-
Conclusions from this study
The researchers said that this finding correlates with the result of previous research showing that a psycho-
Researchers have found that the influence of good moods on the immune system is quite strong and can influence the long-term effect, especially if the person is in a good mood on the day of vaccination.
Thus the unusual question arose whether being happy when we vaccinate increases the chances of developing a stronger immune response.
However, upon careful and good-natured
If the influence of beneficial states has such a strong immunomodulatory effect that researchers have gone so far as to "recommend" that those who come to get vaccinated should aim to be as happy as possible when they get vaccinated, and if vaccines are
"Under these circumstances, why would there be a need for vaccines for people who have discovered the secret to happiness?".
A fascinating perspective
The team of British researchers concluded that there is a decisive link between psycho-
This prospective observational study succeeded in establishing an indisputable causal correlation, but the biased interpretation that was given to the results obtained was ridiculous to say the least.
In other words, since we have at our disposal a natural method of enhancing the immunization process through psycho-
Comments on vaccination
Noting the indisputable value of this discovery which puts in
Asflel that, the team of English researchers mentioned at the end with reservation that the influence of psycho-
However, the team of researchers say these findings are an important starting point for further investigation of this effect.
Knowing now this valuable result, it is not at all the case to follow the bizarre invitation of the vaccine manufacturers that "at the next flu vaccination let's aim to be as happy as possible so that the vaccine will work". Because, in reality, it is not the vaccine itself that is the immunisation booster, as it is
In conclusion, one of the best ways to improve the activity of the immune system is precisely the constant, conscious and voluntary cultivation of psycho-
It remains to be seen to what extent future research in this direction will have the honesty to tell the truth about these very useful issues for people and stop tilting the balance in favour of the vaccine manufacturers, distorting the conclusions of such scientific studies only to please the greedy global vaccine industry.
