The department of public health of Shenzen, China recently announced herbal formulas to help prevent H1N1. These are their equivalent of flu vaccines. I’m not saying that they are the same as the shots, but these herbs do help boost immune function. There are two formulations. One is for those with a strong constitution and the other is for those with a weak constitution, the elderly, and children. The herbal formulae are consumed as a tea twice a day for at least three consecutive days. All of our Chinese herbs are rigorously tested for quality and safety, and yes they do taste awful. But, you know what Buckley’s cough syrup says, “It tastes bad and it works”.
