Keep Swine Flu at Bay : Stay Safe with Home Remedies ;)


Dont give in to the swine flu panic !!

Rather adopt number of measures you can take to ensure that the virus is not able to get you.


Best trick is to keep yourself healthy and fit. Build your own defences and keep your immune system strong enough to ward off any virus/bacteria attack.


Lets check out some measures to tackle a flu virus of any kind, including swine flu. ๐Ÿ˜‰

It is not necessary to follow all the steps at once. Pick a combination of remedies that suit you best. ๐Ÿ™‚

However, in case of Flu, these measures can help only up to an extent. ๐Ÿ™‚

And, if you are already H1N1 infected, mind you, visiting a hospital and staying in solitary confinement is a must.


Here we Go…

1. Tulsi Leaves – Have five duly washed leaves of Tulsi (known as Basil in English) everyday in the morning.

Tulsi has a large number of anti bacterial properties. ๐Ÿ™‚

It keeps throat and lungs clear and helps in infections by way of strengthening your immunity.


2. Giloi – It is a commonly available plant in many areas.

Take a one-foot long branch of giloi, add five to six leaves of Tulsi and boil in water for 15-20 minutes or long enough to allow the water to extract its properties.

Add black pepper and sendha (salt used during religious fasts) or Misri (crystalised sugar like lumps to make it sweet) according to taste.

Let it cool a bit and drink this kadha (concoction) while still warm.:)

It will work wonders for your immunity. ๐Ÿ™‚

If giloi plant is not available, get processed giloi powder from Hamdard or others, and concoct a similar drink once a day.


3. Garlic – Those who can take garlic, must have two pods of raw garlic first thing in the morning. To be swallowed daily with lukewarm water. ๐Ÿ™‚

Garlic too strengthens immunity like the earlier measures mentioned.


4. Milk – Those not allergic to milk, must take a glass of hot or lukewarm milk every night with a small measure of haldi (turmeric).


5. Take homeopathic medicines โ€” Pyrogenium 200 and Inflenzium 200 in particular โ€” five tablets three times a day, or two-three drops three times a day.

While these are not specifically targeted at H1N1 either, these work well as preventive against common flu virus.


6. Yoga Do Pranayam daily (preferably under guidance if you are already not initiated into it) and go for morning jog/walk regularly to keep your throat and lungs in good condition and body in fine fettle. ๐Ÿ™‚

It will work wonders for your bodyโ€™s resistance against all such diseases which attack the nose, throat and lungs, besides keeping you fit.


7. Citrus Fruits – Have citrus fruits, particularly Vitamin C rich Amla (Indian gooseberry) juice.

Since fresh Amla is not yet available in the market, it is not a bad idea to buy packaged Amla juice which is commonly available nowadays.


Last Not the least wash your hands frequently every day with soap and warm water for 15-20 seconds; especially before meals, or each time after touching a surface that you suspect could be contaminated with flu virus such as a door handle or a knob/handle, especially if you have returned from a public place or used public transport.


Remember, “Prevention is Better Than Cure”. ๐Ÿ˜‰
