According to modern medicine, most cases of Swine Flu including H1N1 flu, require only symptomatic relief. Modern drugs include anti-viral drugs like Tamiflu and Relenza but flu viruses can develop resistance to these drugs but the 5000-year old science of India i.e. Ayurveda possesses a wealth knowledge that can aid in fighting the present day health conditions as Ayurvedic principles work on the root cause of the disease. Planet Ayurveda offers herbal capsules prepared from wonderful herb "Giloy" for the treatment as well as the prevention of Swine Flu.

It spreads just like the regular seasonal flu spreads and spreads from respiratory droplets, close contact. Every virus, bacteria or pathogen of any type has a certain incubation period in range between 1-7 days. Like every influenza virus, the incubation period of H1N1 virus is 2 days.
