Naturall remedies for avian flu

Everyone is worried about avian flu or bird flu. What can we do about it. Prevention, obviously, is better than cure. One way we can prevent flu is to wash our hands frequently and not use them on our mouth, nose and eyes. Develop a good body resistance through adopting a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and a balanced diet. And obviously, avoid close contact with infected poultry, birds and their droppings.

And eat well for a strong immune system. See Food for a strong immune system.

Recently there is an interesting piece of news. It seems 11 of 13 birds infected with avian flu started to recover after being fed an extract of kimchi, which is similar to sauerkraut, a fermented cabbage dish packed with a high level of lactic acid bacteria. This was in a test done by scientists at the Seoul National University.

Can Kimchi Sauerkraut Cure Avian Flu?

Note: Star Anise is used in production of the drug Tamiflu. At the current time (November 2005), Tamiflu is the only drug the world has which may reduce the severity of Bird Flu. The drug will not prevent Bird Flu, it will only only reduce the severity of it.

Tamiflu is not the only solution to be straight: http://www.indiadaily.com/editorial/5102.asp

Neutral note: not a good idea to not let anybody just leave their comments if they do not have a Blogger account. It is not internet-wise, IMHO.
