(NaturalNews) If you read the stories on H1N1 influenza written by the mainstream media, you might incorrectly think there’s only one anti-viral drug in the world. It’s name is Tamiflu and it’s in short supply.

That’s astonishing to hear because the world is full of anti-viral medicine found in tens of thousands of different plants. Culinary herbs like thyme, sage and rosemary are anti-viral. Berries and sprouts are anti-viral. Garlic, ginger and onions are anti-viral. You can’t walk through a grocery store without walking past a hundred or more anti-viral medicines made by Mother Nature.

And yet how many does the mainstream media mention? Zero.

The totality of influenza preparedness is defined by the mainstream media as the number of doses of Tamiflu a nation has stockpiled. You see it in stories like this one at the Wall Street Journal: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124…

Tamiflu comes from an herb
To live in a world that’s saturated with natural anti-viral medicine and then not even acknowledge it in the media is beyond bizarre. It’s Twilight Zone-like. It’s like we’ve been teleported to an alternate universe where anti-viral plants have disappeared… or at least everyone is pretending they have.

Where do you think Tamiflu comes from, by the way?

It’s extracted from the Traditional Chinese Medicine herb called Star Anise. It’s one of hundreds of different anti-viral herbs found in Chinese Medicine, not to even mention anti-viral herbs from South America, North America, Australia, Africa and other regions.

I find it downright comedic that Big Pharma and the world’s health authorities extract their “champion” anti-viral drug Tamiflu from a Chinese Medicine herb, and then they go out of their way to announce to people that herbs and natural remedies are useless against influenza. If that’s the case then why are they using herbs to make their own medicine?

How many stories have you read that bother to tell you Tamiflu is made from the star anise herb that’s been used for over 5,000 years in Traditional Chinese Medicine? Virtually none. The powers that be don’t want anybody to know they could actually grow their own medicine in a garden or a windowsill. If you can grow cilantro, you can grow medicine. If everybody figured that out, Big Pharma wouldn’t be reaping the enormous profits it’s making right now from Tamiflu sales, and the governments of the world wouldn’t be able to scare and control people by promising to distribute Tamiflu (but only if you behave).

The Tamiflu scam is global
H1N1 influenza is not a hoax. But the way it’s being reported by health authorities and the mainstream media certainly is. The scam in all this is what they leave out of the stories — the fact that human beings live among a huge natural medicine chest of anti-viral drugs found in every city park, every forest, every swamp and every open field.

You cannot walk across any patch of natural land in America and NOT find anti-viral medicine. It’s everywhere! It’s in the weeds growing in the cracks in the sidewalks; it’s in weeds on the side of the stream; and it’s growing in the small patch of dirt left remaining in the median between highway lanes.

In the deserts of the American Southwest, you can’t even drive to work without passing mile after mile of abundant anti-viral medicine grown by Mother Nature and just waiting for humans to wake up and be smart enough to recognize it.

I have a sobering prediction about H1N1 influenza (formerly “swine flu”): If it does become a global pandemic, many of those people who refuse to recognize the anti-viral medicine provided by Mother Nature will die. Their misplaced faith in Big Pharma will literally cost them their lives. In contrast, those who have the wisdom to get their medicine from Mother Nature will not only survive the pandemic, they’ll thrive even as others around them are dying. It is those who embrace Mother Nature’s powerful, synergistic and living medicines who will weather any pandemic storm, and they will emerge as the DNA holders of the future of human civilization.

    Tamiflu (oseltamivir) is successful in helping treat the virus if taken within several days of having symptoms, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The drugs can shorten the length of the disease and its severity

    I agree totally, all the media are concerned with is generating headlines!

    I understand your frustration, but please understand mine. If I did not have a close friend who studied Chinese medicine and thought to share this article then I would never have known about these facts. I need you to speak louder than the headlines because not everyone has access to an informative source as I do. Up until two minutes ago the Tamiflu is all I knew but according to this article it is not the case. Help those who are ignorant of this information. Speak UP! Your efforts may not change every persons mind but it will leave them to ponder on what other natural remedies are highly available to them.

    -Tell me,man: I’m leaving in the third world called Brazil.Maybe most of the people here have not a wage to leave on,then I’m ask you if the Star Anise could be another name and be found.That’s why Tamiflu is sold here around US$100,00 ,I guess -the minimum wage a month? US$240,00(you have to eat,dress,take a bus,pay the taxes like bell,water,eletricity and son, whatching governmentcorruption on tv all off day *#@*!!!!!

    the spread of AH1N1 or Swine Flu is really scary. It is a good thing that this virus is not very deadly. We are advised to take Vitamin-C and to wear face masks.

    Western medicine has it’s place but it can’t touch Eastern Traditional Chinese Medicine and we’d be arrogant to think so. In China cancer is being cured “cists the size of grapefruits” however our medical industry is making too much money on pharmaceuticals and chemotherapy to consider natural herbs and accupuncture. UBC tried to start a program and the director ended up with her cat hung at her front door. Think about it, this is about money not about health and wellbeing. Just make sure you see an Eastern doctor who has worked with a Master in China, they’re unable to touch patients unless they have trained under a master for 10 years. There’s idiots in North America who are taking 6 month courses and practicing…impossible. Do your homework and trust your gut, it’s definitely worth your time.
