A respected European Journal notes the Aryvetic approach to managing dengue fever.
Given the recommendation to treat with papaya leaf, and the abundance of this herb in India, it may be profitable to society for papaya plantations to supply hospitals in Delhi with leaves (given the reported nature of the current health crisis.)
“The juice of papaya leaf has been found to be useful in the treatment of dengue fever. A number of scientific papers have proved that papaya leaf juice is actually beneficial for the body. Few recent studies have shown the effect of papaya leaf juice in curing the dengue fever. A recent one, done on five dengue patients by Indian Institute of Forest Management in 2012, found interesting observations. Among the five patients, papaya leaf juice was found to be effective in curing dengue. The platelet count increased in all five patients within 24 hours of drinking the papaya leaf juice. All of them reported significant improvement in health.
A 2009 study, done on mice in Malaysia, reported significant improvement in thrombolytic count in the group which received papaya leaf formulations compared to the control group. It seems that this bitter green juice is promising without posing any serious ill-effects.”
