40% of the world’s population is at risk from dengue.
And - there’s no medicine for dengue.
It’s true. There are no antiviral treatments available for dengue. The only way to deal with it is to treat the symptoms or prevent it, stridently.
Evidently, it takes 3 to 14 days for the symptoms to appear after the mosquito bite. The symptoms begin with a flu-like illness followed by body pain. Pain behind the eyes and depleting platelet count is also common. Decreased urine output and respiratory difficulties is seen in acute cases. Chikungunya is differentiated with excessive body pain including joint aches and swelling.
If detected early, dengue can be treated with medicines targeted at the symptoms. Doctors recommend a blood test after three days of consecutive fever. Platelet count is also closely monitored. The normal range of platelet count lies between the range of 1.5 lakh and 4 lakh, but, in a dengue patient the count keeps dropping. If it reaches 15000 – 20000, doctors inject platelets.
While there may be no cure, there certainly is a way to prevent it and fight it ardently. Since the management of the platelet count is crucial in dengue and chikungunya cases, Papaya leaf juice has seemingly become a hot favorite for increasing the count.
Rich in Vitamin A, C and E, Papaya leaf also contains powerful anti-malarial properties. It helps strengthen the immune system, which is very important. Chymopapin and Papain are two enzymes present in the raw papaya leaf which help fight viral infections. Although bitter in taste, the juice of the raw leaf, if taken in considerable amounts, is known to increase the count of platelets in just 3 hours.
Pure Nutrition’s Papaya Complete is a rich, high potent and alcohol free Papaya Leaf & Fruit extract which helps to increase the platelet count and boost immunity. Additionally, it also boosts proper digestion. You can take 2 capsules every day for best results.
