Letha Hadady, author of Asian Health Secrets: The Complete Guide To Asian Herbal Medicine (Three Rivers Press), says frequent handwashing, which is what the government is currently advising people to do, is not enough to keep the flu at bay.
She recommends using Australian tea tree oil or the essential oil of lavender along with soap and water to combat the virus.
Hadady also recommends drinking Chinese herbal remedies with antibiotic properties such as a powdered herb called Flu Away or Ganmaoling which both reduce fever and detoxify the body of the swine flu.
Capsules of oil of oregano also yield good results since they have powerful antimicrobial action.
If you do come down with the swine flu, Hadady suggests you stay home and drink lots of antibacterial drinks which should have you up and running in no time.
