Chinese Herbal Prescription for building up body resistance to the A H1N1 virus
A packet of Chinese Herbal Prescription for countering the A H1N1 Flu
Happy Saturday, dear friends
A month or so ago, I have been receiving through emails and my cell phone a Chinese Formula/Prescription for a herbal tea to stave off the Influenza A H1N1. For my family, I have been brewing Ng Far Char or “Five Flower Tea” (read my earlier post on this HERE) to reduce body heatiness, which in Traditional Chinese Medicine is believed to be the root cause for weak body immunity and susceptibility to any flu virus.
Recently, I saw these herbs for the AH1N1 prescription prepacked for sale at my regular Chinese Medical Hall (shop) – it costs only RM10 for each packet. I bought some to try for my family. Seeing as how the rate of deaths arising from the A H1N1 flu in China is so low given its large population, I was convinced that this herbal formula must be working well to build up our body immunity.
I thought to post this Chinese formula here for those of you who live abroad and you have access to your local Chinatowns…hope that you get the herbs shown in the formula.
How to prepare the herbs -
1) Just bring to boil the herbs in 3 litres of water, lower heat to small and simmer for 2 hours.
2) Remove herbs with a slotted spoon and add in red or brown or white sugar according to taste.
3) Drink one cup or two per person per day. Keep any left over refrigerated.
Important Note :- If you are on Western medication, please keep 3 hours apart between consuming this herbal drink and taking your medication (to prevent contra-indications/clash)
With best wishes,
