Manage Dengue with Ayurveda

Amidst an alarming increase of dengue patients across the country, it is important to strengthen your immunity while taking adequate precautions. Dengue, an infamous flu-like disease caused by the female mosquitoes of the Aedes aegypti species affects millions every year. Common symptoms of dengue include high fever, headache, muscle pain, pain behind the eyes, severe body ache, backache, rashes, and nausea. 

Ayurveda describes Dengue as 'Sannipataja Jwara', Also referred to as fever caused by imbalance of the three Doshas. During Dengue, Pitta and Kapha dosha in the body gets aggravated with a slight increase in Vata dosha. There is no specific treatment for dengue in Western medication. Doctors' main goal is to keep the body hydrated. While in Ayurveda, the treatment aims to increase the immunity of the individual with Ayurvedic herbs that help maintain the body temperature and increase the platelet count as in Dengue, fall in the platelet counts is dangerous.

In the case of Dengue, prevention is certainly better than cure as there’s no effective vaccine against dengue. However, Ayurveda, the 5000-year-old science of natural healing offers effective remedies to help control and manage the symptoms of dengue. Here are some of these remedies

Boost Immunity With Giloy
During an attack of Dengue, it is very important to strengthen the immunity system and maintain good metabolism. Giloy, a well-known immunity booster, helps in maintaining the metabolic rate, improving the immune system, and increasing the platelet count. A herbal drink can be made by boiling two small stems of this magical herb in a glass of water until half a glass of water remains. Drink this Giloy infused water twice a day.

Increase Platelet Count With Papaya Leaf
As the need of the hour is to increase the platelet count, Ayurveda strongly prescribes papaya leaves. Papaya leaves can not only help increase the platelet count but also helps relieve tiredness, nausea, and stomach problems. You can prepare papaya leaf juice by crushing them and extracting the juice. Drinking a small quantity of papaya leaf juice twice a day can offer great results.

Fenugreek Seeds To Control Fever
Fenugreek seeds help balance the aggravated doshas and reduce inflammation. So, drinking herbal tea made from fenugreek seeds helps in reducing fever, inflammation and improves immunity. You can also soak some fenugreek seeds in a glass of water overnight and drink it twice a day. 

Antibacterial Neem
Neem has been long revered for its medicinal and anti-bacterial properties and is recommended for the treatment of numerous ailments. Neem leaves in dengue increase the platelet count, remove the toxins from the body, and strengthen the immune system.

Orange Juice or Sweet lime Juice For Vitamin C
Oranges  and Sweet Lime are rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants which help in building immunity. Drinking orange or sweet lime juice is an elixir for a dengue patient.
