With the onset of monsoon, the spread of mosquito-borne diseases manifold. Dengue is one such disease spread by the Aedes mosquito, which is most active during the dawn and the dusk. It usually breeds in stagnant water, worn and torn tyres, coconut shells etc. 

The disease takes 5-7 days to show the symptoms after the mosquito bite. The symptoms are fever, rashes, joint pains, pain behind the ears, extreme lethargy. The disease progresses by reducing the platelets counts in the blood. Papaya is the best of all the remedies currently available. A synthetic medicine for this is yet to hit the market.

Extracting juice from Papaya leaf

Below is the step by step process to extract juice out of Papaya leaves which have been proven very effective in Dengue treatment. 

1. Wash three healthy and fresh Papaya leaves to remove any dust or dirt.

2. Cut them into smaller pieces using a knife

3. Crush them into fine a paste either using a pestle and mortar or a grinder. Crushing it using pestle and mortar helps extract more juice than in grinder.

4. Squeeze the crushed leaves until last drop. You can also use a sieve to filter it. Drinking the juice without filtering would cause no harm either. 

5. The juice is very bitter to taste, thus add 3-4 spoons of honey which has got anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties as well.


In children 3 teaspoons of juice twice a day

In adults 9-10 teaspoons of juice twice a day.

Other remedies 

Barley grass 

This grass has the unique ability to increase the platelet counts in the blood. Eating raw grass or drinking the barley tea (simply boil 15-20 stands of grass in a glass of water for 5 min) .

Orange juice 

The rich antioxidants in orange juice help in fighting the antigens and hydrates the body. It helps flush out the toxins which speeds up the recovery process.

Basil leaves 

Chewing 5-10 Basil leaves treat the symptoms like fever and nausea caused by Dengue. 

Fenugreek leaves 

Chewing raw fenugreek leaves or including it in a salad helps overcome fever and induce good sleep, helping the healing process.
