On Combating the Flu 

Ven. Master Hsuan Hua


Since the flu epidemic has not yet subsided, it would be best if people didnít drink cold water or eat raw foods, such as salads. Boil the milk before you drink it. Eat more rice gruel and drink more boiled water. Doing that will help you neutralize the poisons that may have entered your system. Yin qiao jie du pian [Chinese herbal flu pills] from China are very effective. The instructions say to take four tablets at a time, but you can take eight tablets when you are very sick. You can take up to a maximum of twelve tablets, and the flu will abate.
