Herbal Cure of Dengue

Dengue fever can be fatal if untreated and undetected. Dengue can be acquired from a bite of mosquito called Aedes aegypti. These mosquitoes live in the tropics and breeds in stagnant waters in cans, vases, old tires and others that will hold enough water.
Symptoms of Dengue are following :
  • Fever which may last 2 to 7 days
  • Joints and muscle pains including at the back of the eyes
  • Skin Rashes
  • Nose Bleeding
  • Abdominal Pains
  • Vomiting  
As of now, no vaccine is available for this disease. As the saying goes, Prevention is better than cure. It is better to prevent the growth of these mosquitoes. So clean all your water containers once a week. Replace water in vases, cover your water containers and make sure you dispose it after a week so mosquitoes cannot breed on them.

If a member of your family has dengue, you need to send them to the nearest hospital, if remains untreated, virus will start to infect/reduce the host's blood platelet count that will lead to death.

Increasing the patient's blood platelet count will eventually help him recover. Blood transfusion can be administered. As herbal remedy, eating Durian will help increase the platelet count. Tawa-tawa weed (Scientific Name : Euphorbia capitata Lam., Philippines herb) can be helpful too. Boil 1 liter of water, put 6 full tawa-tawa weed (roots removed), and boil for at least 1 minute. Put in a glass and let the solution to cool down before drinking. Drink 1 glass every hour. It will help in curing dengue.

Platelet Effect / Dengue Treatment of Tawa Tawa Plants : Study of decoction of tawa-tawa leaves on Sprague-Dawley rats showed an increase in platelet counts without notable effects on RBC and WBC counts. The increase was attributed to stimulation of bone marrow production in the bone marrow.

Tea Making Procedure :
  • Take 5 to 6 full whole Tawa Tawa plants.
  • Cut off the roots.
  • Wash and clean.
  • Fill a boiling pot with clean water.
  • Boil the Tawa Tawa for 1 (one) minute in a slow rolling boil.
  • Cool.
  • Let the dengue fever victim drink only the Tawa Tawa water for 24 hours.
  • Sip 1 to 1.5 glasses of Tawa Tawa water every hour.
