Home Remedies for Dengue and Diet Tips

Dengue Symptoms

The symptom of Dengue is a sharp fever in spite of the fact that the patient is not coughing and he doesn’t feel an acute pain in his body. Most of the time, dengue fever is accompanied by an acute pain in the bones and that’s why this kind of fever is called bone-breaking fever, too. When the patient suffers from Dengue he feels an acute pain in his forehead in his inner side of his eyes, and in his eyes and joints. The loss of taste and appetite, the appearance of small spots on chest and vomiting and nausea are another few symptoms of this fever. 

Dengue also provokes hemorrhage and the patient is irritated by the light, he is vomiting and he can’t rest. It might be repeated attacks of this fever, especially after rains. Hemorrhagic dengue often provokes internal bleeding. 

The patients that suffer from hemorrhage confront with an acute and continuous stomachache, yellowish and sticky skin, cols, and red raised spots on hands, feet and face. The patients bleed through nose, mouth or anus and he can become unconscious because of this. More on, the patient is repeated vomiting, he cannot rest and sleep, his mouth gets dry and he feels a continuously thirst. Hemorrhagic dengue is very dangerous and can lead to the death of the patient. And the worst thing is that it resembles very well the normal fever. 

How Dengue is transmitted

This fever is transmitted by the viral infected mosquitoes that live in stagnant waters, jars, water reservoirs, drums, bottles, tanks and so on. In fact the female mosquitoes are those who transmit the fever. 

Natural Remedies 

Most of the time normal dengue is not very dangerous. The treatment established depending on symptoms must be resorted to i.e., and in cases of high temperature patients can use wet pads. Depending on necessity doctors can administrate antidotes. 

Because the pain killers might increase the hemorrhage they must not be administrated to the patient. More on, the doctor must control the water balance of the patient’s body and he must periodically control the patient’s blood pressure.

Treatments of Dengue Fever

Dhatura is an Ayurvedic version of the well-known belladonna. Using the leaves of this plant you can reduce seriously the effects of dengue fever. But consider the fact that it is very important not to use more than 2 decigrams because this plant can lead to bad negative symptoms like dilatation of the pupils or dryness of the mouth. 

The orange juice is a great enemy of fevers. It increases the urinary output, helps the digestion, and promotes antibodies so the patient heals and recovers faster. 

Raw papaya leaves are of a great help in dengue fever, too. Clean, pound and squeeze 2 pcs. You will obtain a tablespoon from each leaf. You can take 2 tablespoons on serving only once a day. You must consider the fact that if you will cook, boil or rinse the leaves with hot water they will loose their strength. 

Diet Tips 

When you suffer from dengue you must keep a diet. It is recommended to eat baked toasts, porridge, biscuits with tea. Drink herbal teas with cardamom, tusli, or use other herbs that are known that can reduce fever.
