Prevent Swine Flu with Giloy


Giloy is one of the best herbs to prevent swine flu. Swine flu or H1N1 is a relatively new disease that came to light in April 2009 in Mexico. It is spread by the combination of human influenza avian and swine viruses.



In the start the disease affected only those people who came in direct contact with the pigs. But the newly developed virus of swine flu also affects people who have never been near the pigs. This disease has now crossed the borders of Mexico and has spread to many continents and countries.


Causes of Swine flu

It is a contagious disease and spreads in a similar way as that of normal flu. When the persons infected by swine flu, sneeze or cough, the swine flu virus is spread in the air. Any person who comes in contact of this virus catches H1N1 swine flu.


It attacks persons with weak immune system and is therefore particularly dangerous for children and elderly people. It can be prevented by strengthening the immune system.


Important symptoms of Swine flu

General symptoms of swine flu are similar to common flu. Some of the symptoms are fever, cough, sore throat, headache, pain in the body, stuffy or running nose, chills, fatigue and nausea or vomiting.


But swine flu presents many serious complications in the later stages of the disease. Some of the common complications are pneumonia and failure of the respiratory systems. These symptoms generally develop in the patients suffering from chronic conditions of asthma and diabetes. Some of the other complications are confusion, dizziness, abdominal pains and severe vomiting.


Conventional treatment

Swine flu cannot be treated with ordinary antibiotic flu medicines because it is caused by virus. Zanamivir (Relenza) and Oseltamivir (Tamiflu) are the two most effective medicines conventionally used by the doctors against swine flu. Though these medicines work best when given within 48 hours of the onset of the symptoms but can be beneficial even after 48 hours. Other medicines that are effective in alleviating the symptoms are Tylenol and Motrin. But these medicines do not treat the swine flu. However Aspirin should not be given to children below the age of 18 years because it may cause Reye syndrome.


Role of Giloy
