H1N1 Home Made Herbal Remedy

Chef Jacob Kumar Sahay has come out with a home made H1N1 home made herbal remedy that, he claims, will prevent this disease. I thought I would share it with all of the blogger friends, for whatever it is worth.

Ingredients:

Star Anise Seed – 4
Garlic – 10 cloves
Small Onion – 50 grams
Tulsi Leaves – ¼ cup
Turmeric – ¾ teaspoon
Clove – 10
Neem (Margosa) Leaves – 10
Sesame Oil – 150 ml
Salt – as needed

Grind smoothly all of the above except Sesame Oil and salt, like a thick paste.

Place kadai over stove top. Pour Sesame Oil. When it becomes hot, put the ground masala... Let it cook for a few minutes. Then add the salt and stir occasionally. When the oil comes up, it is done. Turn off the stove.

You can eat it with white rice. You can refrigerate and use upto 10 days. It will definitely have the medicinal taste. Do not expect exotic or rich taste.

Star Anise Seed has “shikimic acid” used in preventing swine flu.

Garlic has “Allicium Sulphide” used in preventing swine flu.

Tulsi leaves are used to prevent and cure many illnesses. They are also immune system boosters.

Turmeric is an antibacterial agent.

Clove has “Omega-3 Fatty Acid” which attacks swine flue virus.

Neem leaves have medicinal value. The Sanskrit name for neem tree is “arishtha” which means reliever of sickness.

Hope ya’ll never get sick. (I used the world ya’ll just for fun. I don’t live in South. I live in California.)

  2. Don't think I'll ever be able to stomach a concoction that has neem leaves in it, but yes, tulsi, neem and garlic are said to be immunity boosters.

  17. To All Readers:

    In the ingredients list, I by mistake wrote Sesame Oil - 150mg. It should have been 150ml. I am very sorry about this mistake.

  22. Great job, SG! Thanks for sharing! But I personally dont think that swine flu can be prevented by anything...mask or these herbs. But this concoction may definitely help in boosting one's immune system. Sorry for being sarcastic, but we are already fed up with all these preventive measures coming almost daily in the local newspaper:(

    I just hope and wish that this swine flu vanishes as fast as it came.
