Have some bottles of manuka honey particularly those with higher umf to boost immune system. I think it is good for strep throat/cough. Hope it helps.

Hello my dear c052463 Ji, Following is a poast which I made last week taking help from natural resources. http://in.news.yahoo.com/... [b]"Indian natural herb Tulsi to fight back swine flu Wed, Aug 12 11:56 AM Ayurveda, the traditional 'science of life', has a remedy for diseases when every other stream of medicine fails. Now, at a time when swine flu is spreading like wildfire across the world, Ayurveda has the remedy in the form of the miraculous herb, the basil leaves commonly known as Tulsi. Tulsi, the purest and most sublime plant, has been known and worshipped in India for more than five millennia for its remarkable healing properties. Considered as an 'Elixir of Life', this wonder herb has now been claimed to keep the deadly swine flu at bay and help fast recovery in afflicted persons. "The anti-flu property of Tulsi has been discovered by medical experts across the world quite recently. Tulsi improves the body's overall defence mechanism including its ability to fight viral diseases. It was successfully used in combating Japanese Encephalitis and the same theory applies to swine flu," Dr U K Tiwari, a herbal medicine practitioner says. Apart from acting as a preventive medicine in case of swine flu, Tulsi can help the patient recover faster. "Even when a person has already contracted swine flu, Tulsi can help in speeding up the recovery process and also help in strengthening the immune system of the body," he claims. Dr Bhupesh Patel, a lecturer at Gujarat Ayurved University, Jamnagar is also of the view that Tulsi can play an important role in controlling swine flu. "Tulsi can control swine flu and it should be taken in fresh form. Juice or paste of at least 20-25 medium sized leaves should be consumed twice a day on an empty stomach." This increases the resistance of the body and, thereby, reduces the chances of inviting swine flu," believes Patel. As its name suggests, Tulsi has again proved to be the 'the incomparable' medicine - this time, in the prevention and cure of swine flu. The symptoms of the H1N1 flu virus in people are similar to the symptoms of seasonal flu and include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. A significant number of people who have been infected with novel H1N1 flu virus also have reported diarrhea and vomiting. The high risk groups for novel H1N1 flu are not known at this time, but it's possible that they may be the same as for seasonal influenza. However, Please consult a practitioner in case of any such symptoms. Doctors have strictly advised against self medication." [/b]Please share your views as well. May God bless You and have a great time

Yes it has become scarier in India now.I live in Bangalore and when I see anybody wearing a mask it scares me.I think wearing N95 mask is the only solution to prevent the outspread.If only the govt was more proactive when it was in the initial stage.

Just today on yahoo India I read an article which says that the Tulsi has amazing properties useful for the treatment of flu. I think most Indians have tulsi at home, so you can try eating tulsi leaves. There are other dos and donts in that article…so you can check out yahoo India and read it for yourself.
