The Union Minis¬try for Health and Family Welfare has issued fresh gui¬delines to prevent and con¬tain the outbreak of Influenza A(H1N1).All the individuals seeking consultations for flu-like symptoms should be screened at both government
and private health care facilities. Patients with mild fever, cough/sore throat with or without body ache, headache, diarrhea and vomiting.

Patients categorised into three groups categorised as Category A. They do not require Tamiflu tablets.Such patients should be monitored and reassessed be¬tween 24 and 48 hours. They should be confined at homes and should avoid mixing with public. No testing of patient for A(H1N1) required.

Those having high fever and severe throat infection should be categorized as

Cat¬egory B and they may require Tamiflu tablets and home iso¬lation. Here too tests for the A(H1N1) are not required.

Category C are those hav¬ing breathlessness, chest pain, drowsiness, fall in blood pressure, sputum mixed with blood, bluish discolouration of nails, irritability among small children and refusal to accept feed and worsening of underlying chronic condi¬tions.

Symptoms indicate a choice of Phosphorus.

Pankaj Varma


For breathlessness:

Thyme herb.. drop quarter spoon of the herb in a pan of water , boil the same over a flame and inhale/ exhale the fumes.

The patient will notice immediate releif from breathless ness. the herb also kills the virus.

Thyme herb is notajwain ..which many in India confuse it with. It isa herb ...first found in Egypt.

In India it is available at 'In and Out' stores of Petro stations.

These stores are open normally till mid night.

for control of fever ..take Bio-chemic combination Fever 11 ...four pills six times a day.

To fight infection doses of Influenzum 1M and Phosphorus 200. keep a gap of 20 minutes after inhaling Thyme fumes.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Thyme herb

(Thymus vulgaris), pungent herb of the mint family (Lamiaceae, or Labiatae), the dried leaves and flowering tops of which are used to flavour a wide range of foods, including poultry, stuffings, fish, eggs, meats, butter, sauces, soups, sausages, salads, vegetables, cottage and cream cheeses, fresh tomatoes, and pastas. It is one of the herbs used to flavour Benedictine liqueur. Thyme is a characteristic seasoning in the traditional English dish jugged hare. Bees are fond of thyme, and thyme honey of Sicily has been famous for hundreds of years. In ancient Greek temples, thyme was burned as incense. Pliny the Elder referred to it as a fumigant.


The plant is a small, low-growing shrub with curled leaves. Thyme is native to southern Europe, the Mediterranean region, Asia Minor, and Central Asia and is also cultivated in North America. Dried thyme leaves are greenish brown in colour and have a fragrant odour when crushed. The taste is warm and pungent.

Thyme contains about 1 percent essential oil, the principal component of which is thymol, or thyme camphor. Thymol is used in the manufacture of perfumes and dentifrices. It has antiseptic and anesthetic properties and is used as an internal medicine.

Native to Mediterranean area, the first documented use of thyme was by the ancient Egyptians. Thyme was originally used for cleansing and incense but now is one of the most widely used culinary herbs, often found in soup, egg and meat dishes, sauces, bread and vegetables.

The fumes of Thyme herb can be inhaled and exhaled by healthy individuals as well to keep the H1N1 virus away.

This herb also helps patients of asthma.

More cases being reported and some deaths (in India).

Important to take due precautions...and on noticing any of the symptoms..get tests done ...because the swine flu increases its intensity rapidly.

PANKAJ VARMA last decade
People of neighbouring countries be alert as well. Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh, Pakistan etc. coz the H1N1 virus can spread fast.
 
PANKAJ VARMA last decade
Initial symptoms like headache and pain in eyes, vision hazy, blocked nose (breathlessness) or running nose with bland discharge..... also going away with:

Euphrasia 6

Eyes may have acrid discharge and edges of eyelids red.

Take hourly doses until better.

Some more guidelines from the Government of India:


The first symptoms of swine flu are fever (greater than 100°F or 37.8°C), sore throat, body ache and fatigue. Some patients have also complain about running nose diarrhoea and vomiting.

Persons who have travelled overseas recently should be extra cautious and seek medical help immediately if they have these symptoms.

But these symptoms alone would not suggest that a person is infected by Swine Flu, as it can be confirmed only after testing a respiratory specimen, that’s taken from the suspected case within the first four to five days.

So it is important to seek medical help if one feels that he/she has flu.

As the flu is now spreading by people-to-people to contact, the infection primarily spreads when a person comes in close contact with an infected person. The simple way to minimise the risk is by covering the mouth and nose while coughing and sneezing and wearing a mask while going close to the infected person.

Maintaining high level of hygiene is also important and one should always wash hands frequently with soap and water.

Since influenza spreads through both air and contact with contaminated surfaces, surface sanitizing may help prevent some infections. For that alcohol is an effective sanitizer, bleach can also be used to sanitize rooms or equipment that have been occupied by patients with influenza symptoms.

People with the flu are advised to get plenty of rest, drink plenty of liquids, avoid using alcohol and tobacco and, if necessary, take medications such as paracetamol (acetaminophen) to relieve the fever and muscle aches associated with the flu.

'Some patients have also complained about running nose diarrhoea and vomiting.'

Where these symptoms are present....also give Phosphorus 200 in alteration with Influenzum 1M / 200

Sputum laced with blood will be checked by Phosphorus 200.

When the virus goes deep into the body...patients have exhibited this symptom.

Today's news from India:

Four more succumb, swine flu toll mounts to 74
 
PANKAJ VARMA last decade
Flues are common in India in this post monsoon period in India. out of the 74 very few are midically confirmed case.

There is a panic reaction, resulting in masks selling and no hygein.

There is a mass hysteria.who so ever sneezes wears a masks and spits on the road side. Are we really concious.
 
mazharmhm last decade
People who get admitted to Big Hospitals get high tech treatment only for preventing secondary infection. So people should think seriously about getting 'cheap' homeopathic and ayurvedic treatments before rushing to 'Five Star' Hospitals.
 
kadwa last decade
Today news reports are that death toll in India has gone up to 83 caused by H1N1 virus.

We have to value human life...and act to prevent further escalation of the problem.

With 100 deaths in 3,987 laboratory confirmed positive H1N1 cases, India has registered a mortality rate of 2.3 per cent, much above the 0.9 per cent mortality rate for the rest of the world.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), as on August 21, there have been 1,799 deaths in total 182,000 laboratory confirmed cases across the world, which makes 0.9 per cent the mortality rate across the world.

106 fresh cases of swine flu

'The 2.3 per cent mortality rate is higher compared to the rest of the world, but we are the only country which is looking at laboratory confirmed cases as positive. Other countries are not testing and have included people with flu-like symptoms as positive,' said Dr S K Srivastava, Director General of Health Services.

Swine Flu: Full Coverage

With 584 deaths, Brazil tops the list of countries reporting fatalities due to the H1N1 virus. The mortality rate in Brazil is 0.29 per cent. However, if one takes into consideration the 5,206 laboratory confirmed cases, the mortality rate is 10 per cent — much higher than India's. Brazil is followed by the US with 525 deaths, Argentina with 439 and Mexico with 179 deaths, according to the WHO. India is at the eighth position as far as the number of swine flu deaths is concerned.

Argentina has a mortality rate of 1.08 per cent. However, if one takes into account the 7,173 laboratory confirmed cases, the mortality rate from 439 deaths is 6.1 per cent.

The US has stopped posting figures pertaining to positive cases on its official website and has the figures for hospitalisation, instead. As of August 21, 7,983 hospitalisations were reported in the US. 'If we take hospitalisation as the denominator, the death percentage is much higher,' said Srivastava. 'Look at our population and the number of confirmed cases we have. There are lakhs of cases in Argentina and they take the percentage from these figures and not necessarily from the laboratory confirmed cases,' he added.

The WHO has estimated that more than two billion people will be affected by the virus within two years. Earlier this week, a White House panel said 90,000 deaths are likely due to H1N1 virus in the US.

The Health Ministry is trying to generate its own data to help the government estimate the fund required to control the disease in the country.

'We don't want to go by the disease models that other people in the world are following. Instead, we want to arrive at our independent estimates. But it will take time,' said Srivastava.

The ministry has held informal meetings with several public health experts and the Public Health Foundation of India.

'Next week we will be able to finalise a group of experts for this purpose,' said Dr V M Katoch, DG of ICMR, and Secretary, Health Research, Ministry of Health.

Govt. of India recommends Arsenic Alb. 30 for swine flu. Read on:

India's swine flu deaths 101, preventive homeopathy advised
2009-09-01 22:00:00

India Tuesday reported one more swine flu death, taking the total toll due to the influenza A (H1N1) virus to 101, health authorities said here.

The latest death was reported from Goa. While two deaths in Karnataka were suspected to be due to the virus, lab reports were still awaited.

Of the 101 deaths, Maharashtra has recorded the highest number of deaths, 55, followed by 27 in Andhra Pradesh.

The union health ministry recommended preventive homeopathy medicine,....... Arsenicum album 30........ The decision to advise people to take the preventive medicine was taken after the Central Council for Research in Homeopathy (CCRH), a state-run research wing, gave the suggestion for curbing the spread of the diseases.

'It has recommended one doze of the medicine daily on empty stomach for three days. The dose should be repeated after one month by following the same schedule in case flu like conditions prevail in the area,' the ministry said in a statement.

Meanwhile, 114 people were tested positive for the influenza A (H1N1) virus Tuesday in the country, taking the total number of cases to 4,101.

Maharashtra continued to top the charts both in terms of deaths and positive cases. On Tuesday, 48 fresh cases were from the state alone. So far, about 1,687 people have been affected due to the virus in the state.

It was followed by Delhi in the number of cases. At least 665 people have been infected with the disease in the capital. On Tuesday, 10 fresh cases were reported in the Indian capital.

Karnataka reported 22 fresh cases, taking the total number of people infected with the virus to 463 - the third highest in the country.

Other fresh cases were reported from West Bengal (18) and Orissa (3). One case each was reported from Haryana, Jammu and Kashmir and Chhattisgarh while Puducherry and Chandigarh reported two swine flu cases each.

Meanwhile, a government study has found that swine flu is killing more young and middle-aged people and those suffering from associated diseases like diabetes and chronic heart ailment.

'We have conducted a study and found that more than 50 percent of those affected by the virus were in the age group of 15-45 years,' R.K. Srivastava, director general of the Directorate General of Health Services, told reporters.

'Deaths were also due to late reporting to identified health facilities and delay in initiation of Tamiflu,' he said.

The report, which was presented to Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad during Monday's stock-taking meeting of the ministry, studied the first 82 deaths that occurred till Aug 31.

Among the dead were 43 men and 39 women including three pregnant women.

Srivastava said that of the 82 deaths, 61 were in urban areas and 19 in rural areas.

He said there were five deaths in the age group of 0-5 years and three from 6-15 age group. Thirteen victims were from the age group of 16 to 25 years, while 18 people died in the age group of 26-35 years.

Srivastava said 24 people died in the age group of 36-45, as compared to 18 in the age group of 46-65. Only one person died in the above 65-year category.
