Effective H1N1 Cure Found: Mystery Chinese Herbs

Excellent Swine Flu Advice (by xaminmo)

This is probably the most engaging and equally uninformative news surrounding the swine flu pandemic. Quoting Bernama:

BEIJING, July 23 (Bernama) – Chinese herbs have proved effective in the cure of Influenza A(H1N1) in Ditan Hospital, Beijing where 88 out of 117 patients treated for the disease only on the herbs fully recovered and were discharged.

Holy pigs! This is good news, right? That was my first impression too. Seriously, 88 out of 117 is over 75% success rate. Amazing is an understatement!

As I continued reading, I was happy to find out that this treatment is not only effective, it’s also very cheap:

“Treatment cost per patient using Tamiflu is about RMB56 a day whereas using traditional herbs it cost only around RMB12.”

Google tells me that RMB56 is about USD$8.20; whilst RMB12 is just above USD$1.75 (RM29 and RM6.20 respectively).

Then comes the clincher:

“We have even tested using the method on high risk patients since July 1, and the results proved favourable.” said Wang.

However, Wang did not reveal the herbs used to cure the patients.

Depressing isn’t it? Especially considering that 90% of all medical news for the past two months has been about H1N1.

And here I was, thinking that this would potentially be Nobel prize winning stuff. But until I see real evidence; I count this as vaporware.

    There has been a Swine Flu cure since 2007 (http://glyco-meds.com/pressReleaseSwineFlu.html). This cure is an antiviral compound that has been shown to kill the virus within 6 hours. It has been undergoing human trials for the last two years (http://glyco-meds.com/coldBoosterPlusFormula.html). Unfortunately, this cure was discovered by a small company called GlycoMeds in Phoenix. They applied for an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the FDA (http://glyco-meds.com/pressReleaseEUA.html) not knowing the FDA has a policy that prohibits the approval of any drug to an individual or small company. Because of this policy this cure can’t be marketed and millions of people are going to die needlessly (http://glyco-meds.com/pressReleaseFDASuppression.html) to satisfy the FDA’ Policy.

    My treatment of flu cost only RM1.00 per dosage, so far only 1 of my patients required 2 doses the rest took only 1 doses and cured after 1 day rest. The most amazing part is I stay in Puchong, you no need to go to China for treatment. Go to my blog and read about H1N1 Hoax and the wrong treatment that caused deaths.

  7. Lee Says:

    That is a great news. If it really works, all the people should use the herb to cure H1N1.

    the H1N1 or Swine Flu Virus is very scary at first but now it is well controlled by vaccines and prevention by avoiding going into places with incidence of swine flu.

    H1N1 or Swine Flu is a bit scary but it a good thing to note that this virus is not that very deadly.


    it just makes sense that taking vitamin c and fish oil regularly, or rather often, you will have a greater chance of avoiding it. if you really want protection take garlic, golden seal, rose hips, cayenne, anything to build up your immune system.

    News Flash! Chinese medicine has been around for over two THOUSAND years. SO HAS THE FLU!!! Chinese herbal formulas have been effectively treating the flu for you guessed it – TWO THOUSAND YEARS. Seriously, CM has this covered. I’m not worried about H1N1. I AM worried about H5N1.

    I just heard about this from someones blog that I follow. I wouldnt say it is a cure, but it does seem to be effectve in treating the virus. After all, if you go on the Tamiful website they say they are not a cure, but appears to be effective in treating the virus. It is still amazing though that we can finally look at herbs and vitamins to treat illnesses.
