Swine Influenza (H1N1) Risk Assessment Questionnaire


Swine Influenza has reached Indian shores following the global outbreak and has claimed over 1900 lives this season itself*.. A new strain of H1N1 virus has emerged which is more potent than the 2009 strain which has rendered VACCINES INEFFECTIVE in many cases. The conventional drugs used for the treatment additionally run the risk of the virus becoming DRUG RESISTANT. Swine Flu is certainly one of those diseases where an ounce of prevention is priceless. Getting yourself vaccinated is a futile exercise. Increasing immunity and avoiding coming in contact and getting infected by the virus is the best and simplest approach to be adopted. Some of us on account of our inherent constitution and the state of our doshas (primary body humours namely Vata, Pitta, Kapha) are more prone to the family of Swine Flu Viruses ((H1 through H18 and N1 through N11 are current variants of Influenza Type A Virus)**. Classical Ayurveda has a clear understanding of this group of fevers and the effective prophylactic (preventive) and curative steps to be taken.
