Swine Flu is possble but hard to treat,  once you get infected,

Best you can do is to strengthen your immune system.

 

Get acquainted with the  the herb introduced in the following link (Ekinezya for Turkish speakers)

 

http://www.umm.edu/altmed/articles/echinacea-000239.htm

 

You can buy it as tablets to swallow, from phatmacies... or as a herb to brew and drink like a tea. Totally harmless, unless you have high blood tension problems (if you do, stay away from it)

 

See map below for current size of the epidemic, darker the color higher the risk.

Both of my kids have already had it but thanks for the info on the herb.  I will pass it on to some friends and family.

 Taking echinacea by tablet or drinking echinacea tea is quite common the the UK and is said to help prevent colds.  However, I never heard that it can prevent you catching a flu virus! 

 

If you take echinacea you need to leave a gap of a few months between courses - so its best to take it during the autumn to help fight winter colds

I´ve got the echinacea flower in my garden...if I chew them, will it be the same effect? They do seem a bit dead by now, I wonder if that ruins the effect...

Look it up in google and find out more about the ways it can be used. You can always make a tea out of your flovers,

 There is no better remedy than trying to avoid contact with those that might have it.......... hence I look forward to my trips to London and being crammed in underground carriages with people sneezing and coughing all around Puking

I just wanted to add something:

 

My daughter got swine flu two weeks ago.  And believe me there was no sneezing, coughing or a runny nose... just diarrhoea and very persistent fever.  For your info!!

 

I think it is not as dangerous as they are saying, unless you have an underlying disease such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease...

But healthy people have died too!  Cases have doubled in the last week or so in the UK, so I think it is a problem especially when you are in a crowded space!  There are a variety of symptoms, of which you mention just two.  It is probably not as dangerous as they lead us to believe, but it can soon wipe out a premiership football team!!
