Tulsi can help keep swine flu away: Ayurvedic experts
Wonder herb Tulsi can not only keep the dreaded swine flu at bay but also help in fast recovery of an afflicted person, Ayurvedic practitioners claim.

"The anti-flu property of Tulsi has been discovered by medical experts across the world quite recently. Tulsi improves the body's overall defence mechanism including its ability to fight viral diseases. It was successfully used in combating Japanese Encephalitis and the same theory applies to swine flu," Dr U K Tiwari, a herbal medicine practitioner says.

Apart from acting as a preventive medicine in case of swine flu, Tulsi can help the patient recover faster." Even when a person has already contracted swine flu, Tulsi can help in speeding up the recovery process and also help in strengthening the immune system of the body," he claims.

Dr Bhupesh Patel, a lecturer at Gujarat Ayurved University, Jamnagar is also of the view that Tulsi can play an important role in controlling swine flu.

" Tulsi can control swine flu and it should be taken in fresh form. Juice or paste of at least 20-25 medium sized leaves should be consumed twice a day on an empty stomach." This increases the resistance of the body and, thereby, reduces the chances of inviting swine flu,"believes Patel.

When asked as to what extent Tulsi should be used in treating swine flu, the lecturer said,"It all depends upon the intensity of the disease. And the dose is administered accordingly."

Dr Narendra Singh, who worked with the Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics at the erstwhile King George Medical College, Lucknow, also believes that Tulsi can help in containing swine flu.

" Three varieties of Tulsi leaves - Krishna ( Ocimum sanctum), Vana ( Ocimum gratissimum) and Katuki ( Picrorriza kurroa) improve cell mediated immunity. These are anti-viral agents and improve body's resistance against various diseases including swine flu," he said.

Moreover, the practitioners said taking Tulsi is safe as it has no side effects and can be taken along with other medicines.
