How to Cure Dengue, A Viral Malady, by Ayurvedic Medicinal Herbs?

Dengue is among one of the viral diseases which transmits mainly by the infectious bite of one of the mosquitoes of the species Aedes Aegypti.The disease reveals its signs and symptoms after five or six days of the mosquito bite. Its sickness ranges from mild to severe life threatening illness. Its severeness leads to the flu-like illness called Dengue Hemorrhagic fever (DHF) which may lead to the death of a person. People of all age groups and almost both sexes are susceptible to this disease whereas more frequent death occurs in children during the severeness of this disease. Its prevalence may be observed almost in every nook and corner of India, in different towns and metropolitan cities. Its outburst has also been observed from the outskirts of Karnataka, Maharashtra and Haryana. Its incubation period (the transition period of a disease from mild to severe) ranges from six to twelve hours to three to five days.

Several breeding places have been observed where water easily stagnates which aid mosquitoes to multiply in number and some of them are Jars, Coolers, Tanks, Cisterns, Bottles, Tree holes, Gutters, etc.

Causes of Dengue

Transmission of virus from the infectious bite of Aedes mosquito is the foremost cause and some of the underlying characteristics of this species are-

  1. These mosquitoes are mainly active during the daytime.
  2. They have stripes throughout their body like that of a tiger.
  3. They cannot fly high.
  4. They are mostly found behind curtains, at dark and cool places, on hanging objects and under the furniture.

If a person develops dengue and this mosquito bites that person and sucks his blood then the virus enters into the mosquito’s body and then if the mosquito attempts to bite a hale and hearty person then the dengue virus enters that person’s bloodstream.

The risk of its severeness increases if a person develops dengue for more than one time.

Symptoms of Dengue and Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF)

Symptoms of dengue range from mild to severe depending upon the stage/degree of disease a person develops. If a person develops dengue he should check out for one or more of the following underlying symptoms such as-

  1. High fever (up to 104degree Fahrenheit) with sudden feeling of cold
  2. Inflammation, redness and pain in eyes
  3. Loss of appetite/hunger
  4. Vomiting and nausea
  5. Pain in joints and muscles
  6. Severe diarrhea
  7. Development of rashes all over the body
  8. Experience low heart rate along with circulatory problem i.e. low blood pressure
  9. Headache
  10. Dryness of mouth and feeling of thirst
  11. Severe stomachache
  12. The adverse condition of Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever may lead to bleeding eyes, gums and nose.

However, in a few cases, it does not reveals any of such symptoms and it seems like a normal fever.

Prevention of Dengue

  4. Some health concerning and awareness programmes should be delivered through television, radio, slides, etc to impart knowledge about the disease to the rank and file and the underprivileged.

  6. Wear the clothes having full body coverage like wear full sleeves, full pants, socks, and narrow neckline, etc.
