A recent government health report found that childhood flu remedies, Tamiflu and Relenza, have been linked with neurological problems. Among them, hallucinations, convulsions, and death. Twenty-five patients under the age of 21 died after taking Tamiflu during the study.
I know its hard to watch your loved ones get the flu, but realize that the over-the-counter remedies can have serious side effects, and delay the healing process. Flu Shots aren’t the answer either.
What I recommend to my patients is taking healthy doses of Vitamin-C, lots of purified water, and of course, rest. It’s a great way to help the body develop antibodies against the flu in the future.
