Flu Ayurvedic Remedies
Since flu commonly comes with gastric disturbances, pippali (long pepper) is a useful medication. It is possible to buy the remedy in powder form and mix it with two teaspoons of honey and half a teaspoon of ginger and prepare it as an infuse. Drink this infuse three times a day. At the first attack of fever, it will prevent a further increase in fever. This preparation increases the resistance of the patient against attacks of bronchitis and throat congestion.
Tulasi or ocimum sanctum (basil) is another medicine for this seasonal illness. Leafs of this plant, together with an equal quantity of shunty (dried ginger powder) are an excellent substitute for tea during one’s illness. It is possible to prepare this drink with the addition of milk and sugar, three or four times a day.
A simple but extremely efficient remedy for this disease is the root of hadridra (curcuma). Add this spice to a glass of milk served with a teaspoon of tea and drink it three times a day. This remedy will bring immediate solace and cure to the disease, eliminating also constipation. It keeps lungs free of phlem and activates the liver.
Tribhuvana Kirti Rasa is also commonly used by doctors to cure the flu. It is available both in powdered form and in tablets. 250 mg is the equivalent of two tablets and is the recommended dose. This substance can be administered three or four times a day with honey according to the patient’s fever . If cough is also present in the symptoms, then a teaspoon of ginger juice (Shunty) may be added to the mixture.
