If we study Ayurvedic literature, no description of swine flu is available as such by name indicating the possibility of absence of such disease thousands of years back when Ayurveda was at its boom. However to find out some preventive and curative measures today, we may revise the concept ot Ojus and Jwara Chikitsa (Treatment of fevers) as described in auyurveda. According to ayurvedic texts, Ojus is the essence of all Dhatus. It is the chief cause of strength in the body.

Rasadinam Shukrantanam dhatunam yat param tejah tatkhalvojuh tadeva balamityuchyate swashastra siddhantat.
Sushruta Sutra 15/19 Ojustu tejo dhatunam hukrantanam param smritam Ashtanga hridya sutra 11/37
The deficiency of Ojus leads to various diseases. This may probably be due to lack of immunity.
Tadabhavat ca sheeryante sharirinam.
Susruta sutra 15/22
There are three Vikrities of Ojus:
- Oja Visransa
- Orji Vyapat
- Oja Kshaya
Visransa means not at proper place. Visransa of Ojus results to laxity of bones and joints, exhaustion, lack of proper co-ordination in physical and mental activities.
The vyapatti of Ojus results to heaviness of the body, stiffness of joints, swelling, discoloration, exhaustion, drowsiness, sleepiness.
Kshaya of ojus results into the symptoms of:
- Moorchha (fainting)
- Mansa-Kshaya (loss of body weight/emaciation)
- Moha & Agyana (disorientation)
- Pralapa (delirium)
- Maranam (death)
A person suffering from Oja-Kshaya is a victim to so many diseases and life threatening situations. A person suffering from Oja Kshaya if develops Kapha Pittaj Jwara or Sannipatika Jwara, it may be fatal for him.
The symtoms of Kapha Pittaj Jwara according to Susruta (Su U 39/50) are:
- Liptasyata (feeling of mouth coated)
- Tiktasyata (bitter taste in the mouth)
- Tandra (lethargy)
- Moha (altered sensorium)
- Kasa (cough)
- Aruchi (loss of appetite)
- Trisha (thirst)
- Muhur daho Muhur Sheetam (burning sensation altered with cold sensation)
If we study the symptons of Sannipatika Jwara in Caraka Samhita (C, Ci 3/103-108), we observe the following symptoms:
Kshane daha Kshane Sheetah (burning sensation altered with feeling of cold)
Asthi Sandhi Shirouja (pain in bones and joints, headache)
- Ashru puritans Netra (eyes full of tears)
- Karna shoola (earache)
- Tandra (drowsiness)
- Moorchha (fainting)
- Bhrama (giddiness)
- Alga Shaithilya (laxity in organs)
- Rakta Shtheevanam (hemoptsis)
- Shiraso lothanam (restless)
- Anidra (sleepleness)
- Hridaya Vedana (pain in precordinal region)
Gurutwam Udara (heaviness in abdomen) etc.
The above symptoms are somewhat similar to the symptoms of swine flu observe by modern doctors. The patients of swine flu with typical influenza symptoms are: Cough, Cold, Fever,
The possible treatment may be:
For Jwara (fever) & Kasa (cough):
- Jwarankusha Rasa
- Tribhuwana keerti Rasa
- Amrita Sattva

- Sitopaladi Choorna
- Talishadi Choorna
- Drakshadi Choorna
Some antipyretic extracts are:

These extracts are antipyretic, appetizers, digestives for doshas and alleviate thirst, anorexia and distaste in mouth. (C. Ci. 3/197-199). Peya with vidarigandhadi gana for fever and cough. (C.
