Delicious Pin It
(NaturalNews) Avian, or bird flu virus, was confined primarily to birds, mostly chickens, up to the 1990s. Until then it was not considered a health threat to humans. Early cases in humans emerged in Hong Kong in 1997. Although the original bird flu was a rare strain, individuals may still be susceptible to another contagious avian flu epidemic. Why? A new bird flu pandemic has arisen in China including the original strain, now intensified with additional pathogens. There are no conventional treatments for avian flu; however herbs and home remedies protect against the flu and speed recovery in those who become ill.

Astragalus

Used in China for centuries, astragulus is an immune-enhancing herb that strengthens the body. It supports the bone marrow by increasing the production of interferon and building disease-fighting blood cells enabling an individual to resist and fight the bird flu virus.

Echinacea

The traditional herbal cure for flu is Echinacea. Used by herbalists for centuries as a blood purifier and immune system stimulant, echinacea is an herbal star for strengthening the system. Echinacea is most effective when taken in liquid extract form.

Garlic

Garlic is a potent natural medicine with outstanding ability to protect against and fight the flu. It is respected by herbalists and Chinese medical doctors and has been used for centuries for its anti-viral and antibiotic characteristics. Garlic is most potent when crushed first and then eaten raw or made into tea.

Forsythia and Honeysuckle

Forsythia and honeysuckle, two herbs frequently used in Chinese medicine, are often mixed with lemon balm, to make a soothing tea that helps ward off avian flu. All three herbs possess strong antiviral properties, and combining them into a tea increases their efficacy.

Turmeric

The compound curcumin, from turmeric, is anti-inflammatory and relieves fever while reducing some of the lethal effects of the bird flu cytokine storm. This is a biological event expressed by an out-of-balance immune system. It involves certain inflammatory agents that become heightened during the bird flu, and persist in stimulating additional increases in similar immuno-agents; The compounding of one-upon-the-other of these inflammatory agents creates tremendous health risks, furthering the avian flu inflammation.

Blue Green Dragon

This potent Chinese herbal formula is highly effective against bird flu virus and is a combination of eight traditional herbs, each with the ability to strengthen the immune system in its own way. One of the main herbs present is Ma Huang or Ephedra, who's main action dilates the body's pores allowing sweating, which encourages the release of toxins. See below for NaturalNews article discussing Blue Green Dragon formula. Ma Huang has been banned in the U.S. by the FDA; however, there are other herbs and supplements that have similar action and can be taken along with the remaining Blue Green Dragon formula maintaining its efficacy. Both cayenne pepper and the B-vitamin niacin dilate surface capillaries in the skin, opening pores and causing sweating.

Olive Leaf Extract

Both antibacterial and anti-viral, olive leaf extract is a strong immune system enhancer, supporting the blood and lymphatic systems to fight bird flu.

Oil of Oregano

An essential oil whose germ-killing properties are reported to be as potent as those of most antibiotics, oil of oregano is also considered an effective antiviral treatment for beating avian flu.
