CHINA -- There may be a natural way for you to fight the flu.

In a new study, researchers in China compared a common chinese herbal remedy to one of the most popular prescription drugs to treat the flu, called Tamiflu.

They had over four hundred young adults who were infected with H1N1 take Tamiflu, the herbal remedy, a combination of both, or nothing at all.

They found fever resolved sooner in all the groups given the herbal remedy.

Experts say the chinese herbal remedy may be an alternative to Tamiflu, particularly in areas where there is little access to medication.

The herb is called Maxingshigan-Yinqiaosan.
