Papaya Juice - Cure for Dengue
You may have heard this elsewhere but if not I am glad to inform you that papaya juice is a natural cure for dengue fever. As dengue fever is rampant now, I think it's good to share this with all. A friend of mine had dengue last year. It was a very serious situation for her as her platelet count had dropped to 28,000 after 3 days in hospital and water has started to fill up her lung. She had difficulty in breathing. She was only 32-year old. Doctor says there's no cure for dengue. We just have to wait for her body immune system to build up resistance against dengue and fight its own battle. She already had 2 blood transfusion and all of us were praying very hard as her platelet continued to drop since the first day she was admitted.
Homœpathic family guide for the use of twenty-eight ... remedies: With directions for the treatment of dengue and yellow fever,
Fortunately her mother-in-law heard that papaya juice would help to reduce the fever and got some papaya leaves, pounded them and squeeze the juice out for her. The next day, her platelet count started to increase, her fever subside. We continued to feed her with papaya juice and she recovered after 3 days!!! Amazing but it's true. It's believed one's body would be overheated when one is down with dengue and that also caused the patient to have fever. Papaya juice has cooling effect. Thus, it helps to reduce the heatiness in one's body, thus the fever will go away. I found that it’s also good when one is having sore throat or suffering from heatiness.

Homeopathy Remedies for Dengue Fever
Homeopathy can help and the genus epidemicus remedy is usually Eupatorium Perfoliatum (Bone Set) because many suffers experience such agonizing bone pains. Ipecac can also be useful when there is hemorrhage.
Remedies to consider also are;
Arsenicum Album – Great debility and restlessness with great thirst but drinks only a little at a time and often.
Baptisia – When there is great malaise and languor, but the person feels as if their body is double and they must try to collect themselves in the bed. It is very useful in the recovery phase also when there is great weakness.
Bryonia – When the person does not want to move and any movement aggravates. Joints can be hot and swollen and better from pressure.
Gelsemium – Feels sore and bruised all over and the muscles refuse to obey the will. Thirstlessness and chilly.
Pyrogeneum – Chill follower by fever that is very high. Great delirium and abnormally slow pulse.
Rhus Toxicodendron – Whole body painful. Puffiness of the joints, better for movement. The rash can sometimes be cured with Rhus Tox.
Eupatorium Perfoliatum – Great soreness and aching of the body with deep aching pains in the bones. The muscles can sometimes feel as if torn from the bone.
Other remedies to consider are Ipecac, Lachesis, Hamamelis, Crotalus Horridus, Ferrum Metallicum, and Secale when bleeding is present. China Officianalis and Baptisia may help when recovery is slow and accompanied by great weakness.
As with most acute prescribing the 30c and 200c potencies are usually the best to start out with. Repetition may be needed often depending on the duration of the response.
Always consider Dengue Fever in the differential diagnosis of any person who has fever and a history of travel to a tropical area within the last 2 weeks prior to the onset of symptoms. Clinical tests are available but must be interpreted with care. Acetaminophen products are usually prescribed for the management of fever. Aspirin should be avoided because of it’s anti-coagulant properties and the possibility of hemorrhage.
In the end nothing can treat Dengue Fever like homeopathy. Always take the case and prescribe the best remedy for the person. As always the prescription will be for the whole person and not just their physical symptoms only.
