Chinese researchers think they have found a flu-fighter that may be an option to drugs like Tamiflu, particularly in areas of the world where they have little access to a pharmacy. It's an herb called, Maxingshigan-Yinqiaosan that appears to reduce the fever that comes with the flu sooner than prescription drugs. Researchers say they compared this herb to Tamiflu by testing both in a group of about 400 young people with H1N1. They found fever resolved sooner in every patient that tried the herb.
