The flu season has arrived; mostly H1N1 now, we should soon start to see more seasonal flu as well. There are a lot of healthy approaches to fight this infection. I have made a link below to an article from the Natural Medicines Database, an outstanding physician-oriented website. This article reviews evidence-based research as to which natural medicines may — or may not — fight the flu. It’s a bit dense but very interesting and useful.
At the bottom of the article is a terrific summary graph that ranks natural medicines by safety and effectiveness; their medicines that are “likely safe and possibly effective” for flu treatment are:
- Vitamin C
- Zinc (lozenges)
