A Chinese Traditional Medicine
Bongbong Marcos’ Remedy
In China, Lian Hua Qing Wen is a COVID-19 remedy with mild or moderate symptoms. It is originally a common cold and flu medicine. This is due to its antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties. Bongbong Marcos’ treatments during his fight with Coronavirus include this. Organic remedies from China are known to be effective against many diseases since ancient times. However, in the Philippines despite China’s very advance medical capability, Filipinos are caught up with the trade war propaganda against Chinese products.
Former Mandaluyong City mayor Benjamin “Benhur” Abalos Jr. took this Chinese traditional herbal medicine when many other testimonies of success looked viable. After his positive testing for the coronavirus, Marcos gave him the Lian Hua Qing Wen. There’s no harm in trying it because it’s a natural herbal remedy, he implied. He immediately took four capsules and felt better the following day.
Lian Hua Qing Wen
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Approves Lian Hua Qing Wen as traditional medicine. It is not a treatment for COVID-19. The prescription of a doctor is also a requirement by pharmacies.
