Dengue fever is one of the worst viral infections affecting millions of people every year. Although the mortality rate is relatively low, between 50 and 500 million people are affected each year by the mosquito-borne dengue virus.

This tropical disease was limited, but since the mid-20th century, it has been endemic in more than 100 countries.

Although there is no medical treatment to treat dengue, there are effective remedies that relieve the symptoms of dengue fever. These include barley grass, goldenseal, neem leaves, papaya, orange juice, coriander, basil leaves, water, fenugreek, and juice.

What is Dengue?

World Health Organization defines “Dengue” as a “viral infection” transmitted by the bite of an infected female Aedes mosquito. Dengue can affect everybody irrespective of the age group.

Signs and Symptoms of Dengue:

  • Sudden high fever, with fever reaching up to 104 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Sudden and drastic drop in the blood platelet count
  • Severe joint and muscle pain
  • A severe headache and pain in eyes
  • Skin Rashes
  • Low blood pressure
  • Vomiting and nausea
  • Fatigue and exhaustion

Some Natural Remedies For Treating Dengue:

Some natural remedies that you may consider using for treating Dengue are as follows:

1. Papaya Leaves

In the event, you have been diagnosed with Dengue, the best-known alternative treatment of Dengue is papaya leaves. Some people consider papaya leaves as the “magic cure” for Dengue as it helps in fighting the symptoms of Dengue including fever, body aches and reduction in the blood platelet count.

You may take fresh papaya leaves in 2 (two) forms, viz. juice (crushed and strain the paste through a cloth)or paste. 2 tablespoons of this juice or paste should be taken every day.

2. Giloy

Giloy taken in any form acts as an “immuno-modulator”, i.e. it helps enhance the natural immune system of the body. Giloy juice helps improve the platelet count of the blood, which gets drastically reduced when you suffer from Dengue.

3. Neem

Our ancestors considered Neem as a tree with many medicinal properties. Neem water (after boiling neem leaves with water) if taken regularly, helps improve the platelet count of the blood. It also increases the number of white blood cells which are known to be the “guards” of our body.

4. Basil

Basil or Tulsi also has many medicinal properties that help you fight Dengue. You may consume Tulsi leaves directly or after preparing “kaada” (boiling in water along with black pepper). It also rejuvenates the immune system of the body.

5. Water

It is very important that you keep your body hydrated at all times. By drinking lots of water you can replace the fluid loss resulting from Dengue.

Note: The home remedies for treating dengue, mentioned above, are just supplements and actual treatment of Dengue calls for continuous medical supervision. Since Dengue can be fatal a physician’s intervention is of paramount importance.
