Echinacea or Tamiflu for the flu? My choice: echinacea. Here’s why.

0:00 Natural remedy for the flu
0:17 Echinacea for the flu
0:32 Tamiflu side effects
0:50 Echinacea benefits

An interesting study was done on 500 patients with the flu that compared echinacea and the drug Tamiflu. Tamiflu is mainly given to people with the flu or to someone who has been exposed to the flu but hasn’t shown symptoms yet.

The study found that echinacea had the same efficacy as Tamiflu in decreasing flu symptoms, with reduced risk of complications. Always check with your doctor before you try any natural remedy.

Side effects of Tamiflu:
• Nausea
• Vomiting
• Diarrhea
• Dizziness
• Headaches
• Nose bleeds
• Insomnia
• Respiratory problems
• The flu

Potential benefits of echinacea:
• It has antiviral effects
• It may improve cold symptoms (sneezing and sinus pressure)
• It has anti-inflammatory effects (especially when using the roots)
• It has anti-migraine effects
• It may enhance the immune system (increases monocytes and stimulates neutrophils and natural killer cells)
