Subject: HIN1 Chinese cheap cure..
From someone studying Chinese medicine. If swine flu comes around and you cannot get hold of Tamiflu, don't panic.
Tamiflu may run out very quickly given that the manufacturers need about 3-4 months to produce them.
Star anise (Chinese calls it 'eight angles') is a spice ingredient used in Chinese cooking; it is cheap.
Use 9 star anise, 6 cups of water, boil in earthern pot if possible; avoid steel/metal pot.
Boil for about 30-40 minutes until about 4 cups left.
Drink twice daily over the flu period.
Above volume good for 2 adults per day.
To add flavour, add couple of red dates (remove seed before boiling).
