Herbal Remedies Gaining
Popularity For H1N1 Symptoms

Buchang USA hosted the first Buchang Health Forum in New York, whose primary goal, according to one of the press releases on December 3rd, was to "provide an integrative "East-meets-West" platform for healthcare experts and patient advocacy groups to exchange views and knowledge on the management of [pandemic H1N1] and other global pandemics."

Buchang is the producer of an herbal remedy product known as Xiangju, a formula containing 8 different herbal ingredients developed to help fight cold and flu virus symptoms. It is one of the products recently tested by the Ministry of Health in China for efficacy against H1N1, and was approved by the State FDA (China) "as an OTC product for the relief of flu and cold-like symptoms."

Another herbal formula, Lian Hua Qing Wen, is being recommended by the Chinese State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for people to take to help prevent developing H1N1 symptoms; though this same formula was warned by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to remove claims that it prevents or treats H1N1 symptoms under penalty of regulatory criminal action.

Speculators say Price of Ginger may Skyrocket Due to Swine Flu Symptom Fears

Ginger, especially when combined with honey, are a well known and age-old herbal remedy for cold and flu symptoms, and H1N1 symptoms are no exception, at least in the eyes of many.

Garlic has similar preventative and virus-fighting qualities, and has seen a price increase of as much as 1500% since March, especially in China. Although ginger has not yet seen such a dramatic spike – only 85% in the same time – a press release on December 3rd claimed that "The health benefits of ginger and the current concerns over swine-flu . . . will very likely contribute to further the expected price increases." This is only made more likely as it coincides with supply shortages, as falling prices in recent years had many farmers changing to more profitable crops.
