India: 10 Preventive Steps to keep Swine-Flu Away


They say prevention is better than cure and now that Swine Flu is spreading like Wildfire in India too, we need to come up with some proactive measures so that we are not a victim of the deadly disease.

Here are 10 things you can do to protect yourself from the virus.


1. Wash your hands frequently

Use the antibacterial soaps to cleanse your hands.
Wash them often, at least 15 seconds and rinse with running water.


2. Get enough sleep

Try to get 8 hours of good sleep every night to keep your immune system in top flu-fighting shape.


3. Keep hydrated

Drink 8 to10 glasses of water each day to flush toxins from your system and maintain good moisture and mucous production in your sinuses.


4. Boost your immune system

Keeping your body strong, nourished, and ready to fight infection is important in flu prevention.
So stick with whole grains, colorful vegetables, and vitamin-rich fruits.


5. Keep informed

The government is taking necessary steps to prevent the pandemic and periodically release guidelines to keep the pandemic away.
Please make sure to keep up to date on the information and act in a calm manner.


6. Avoid alcohol

Apart from being a mood depressant, alcohol is an immune suppressant that can actually decrease your resistance to viral infections like swine flu.
So stay away from alcoholic drinks so that your immune system may be strong.


7. Be physically active

Moderate exercise can support the immune system by increasing circulation and oxygenating the body.
For example brisk walking for 30-40 minutes 3-4 times a week will significantly perk up your immunity.


8. Keep away from sick people

Flu virus spreads when particles dispersed into the air through a cough or sneeze reach someone else’s nose.
So if you have to be around someone who is sick, try to stay a few feet away from them and especially, avoid physical contact.


9. Know when to get help

Consult your doctor if you have a cough and fever and follow their instructions, including taking medicine as prescribed.


10. Avoid crowded areas

Try to avoid unnecessary trips outside. Moreover, avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
Germs spread this way.


We all want a Healthy India. Please Spread The WorD.

  1. Good One.


  2. The Caution is good but if we feel that we should have a check up done the Hospitals are Charging so Much every individual is not having enough for cash to go for the Check up what should be done either be bankrupt (do not eat or go for a treatment) It should be the government’s responsibility that they should make this treatment free as it has just started. The govt. will make it free only when it is curable fully, whats the use of cure that time but Now when its urgent to go for a check up it is charged heavily suggest something which cam make Indian & other families relaxed at least they should not have a feeling that its heavily charged so not to go for a check up………… Now Whats the Govt. Responsibility………………….


    • Well I guess You have got the point tarun πŸ™‚

      it is entirely Govt responsibility to check the menace and make treatment/testing facilities accessible to every infected person or say every suspect.

      But beside that at individual level we too have certain responsibilities and that is of to spread the word about remedies and diet which can make us immune strong to do away with any swine flu risk πŸ™‚
