With the start of school just around the corner, I’ve been reading, and hearing about the Swine Flu on just about every media outlet there is.  There is a lot of information out there and if you are un-informed then it does start to sound pretty scary.  Your health is important, just about the most important thing there is, and you should be knowledgeable about the decisions you make regarding it.  Dr. Mercola has posted another great article on the Swine Flu and specifically regarding kids going back to school and vaccines.  Make sure you get all the information before you make any rash decisions, it’s yours and your childs health and it shouldn’t be taken lightly!  Don’t be afraid to discuss these things with your doctor!

About eresko

I am a licensed Acupuncturist and NCCAOM Board certified Diplomat of Oriental Medicine. I live in Hailey, Idaho, where I have an Acupuncture practice, Erin Hill Acupuncture as well as a type of Integrative Wellness Care practice, Tune Up. I am also a Level I & II certified Kettlebell Instructor and teach private classes in the Wood River Valley, Idaho. I have been very active in sports and athletics since I can remember. I received my BS in Integrative Physiology at the University of Colorado @ Boulder. In my practice I utilize all modalities to help get you where you want to be, whether with Acupuncture, Nutrition, or Kettlebell training. I am well versed in treating Sports specific conditions; pain, injuries, strains & sprains and use my knowledge of the body both from a Chinese Medical standpoint and a traditional Western one; a concept that most of my patients are familiar with. In addition, I incorporate my knowledge of the physical body & how we move, where restrictions, pain, or tightness may reside and how that, in turn, affects the internal organs or vice versa. For each individual that walks through my door, I am able to assess what each person needs as far as therapy to achieve their goals. Each person is different, inside and out and treatments should reflect that. Among my modalities, I use Acupuncture, Chinese Herbs, Tuina (a type of Chinese bodywork), Japanese style Acupuncture, Moxibustion, Nutrition, and Lifestyle coaching as well as my Kettlebell training for rehab and for improving one's fitness level.

    erin…thank you so much for posting this, for raising awareness in the importance of ‘do no harm’ and ‘do our research’. i have never received a flu shot, and neither have my children. it was really pushed on me during my pregnancies, but i refused. my reasons are multi-fold. nobody in my family will be receiving the H1N1 vaccine. my son, now 4 y.o. has not received any vaccinations beyond his 6 mos. vac which produced what i and my husband believe to be an aluminum reaction. we have decided to alter our daughters immunization schedule based on dr. sears vaccination book and so far have not seen any neg reactions. this is very controversial, however, and a very personal decision. we will be further altering her schedule and leaving some vaccinations out based on our own research. it is important to be educated on all sides, and to then be armed to make the best decision based on our information. acupuncture has served to ‘clear’ both of my children of the negative effects of the vaccines they have received. thanks again for this post, and for raising the awareness.
