What is Swine Flu?Swine Flu is a respiratory disease caused by virus(H1N1) that infect the respiratory tract of pigs,resulting in nasal secretion,productive cough,loss of 1st it was found in pigs and then transmitted to humans...Swine influenza virus was 1st isolated from pigs in 1930 in the US and has been recognized by pork producers and veterinarians to cause infections in pigs world wide...

Ayurveda Perspective-

According to Ayurveda Swine Flu can compare with Vata Shlashmik Jwara as it's mostly occurs in the end of January and pick on February and decrease in March...this period is known as Ritu Sandhi...means we can experience Cold and Hot condition during the day...during this Ritu Sandhi the Bal(Immunity) of our body also coming down due to weather condition and it can aggravate the Vata and also kapha and causing Vata-Shleshmik Jwara...

Ideally this Flu is on peak during the temperature of 15 degree to 35 when it goes beyond 35 degree than automatically coming down...Now during this season in India maximum Marriage functions going on and people eating Inappropriate Food,Cold Drinks,large public gathering and o many things that worsen the disease condition and many people get infected through such huge public gathering...As per Ayurveda this kind of Diet,Life style is the responsible for AMA which is ultimately the cause of Vata-Shleshmik Jwara...
