The Swine flu has struck heavly upon the health care system of our country. Once again we need to admit that the conventional system has failed to control its out break even though we gave got vaccines and other medicines in enough quantity. In this situation its better to think about the Indian Systems of Medicines also.
As per Ayurveda, Swine flu is a type of fever (Jwara) which is caused by external agents such as viruses. We consider such kind of viruses (eg. H1N1 series) as toxins or toxin producing entities. These will destroy immune system, liver function, kidney functions etc. In such conditions the first need is DETOXIFICATION. For that various therapies as well as medicines are present in Ayurvedic system of medicine. Along with that immunomudulatory, hepato protective, antiviral, antimicrobial single drugs such as neem, curcumin, thulasi etc. As well as many combination antitoxic preperations can cure Swine Flu.
Apart from this the outbreak can be prevented using various purification and disinfectentant procedures like fumigation using antiviral and antimicrobial medicines such as Aparajita, Nimba etc. Can be used effectively. So its the need of hour to look into the Prakriti (environment) itself for safe remidies in such out breaks.
