According to Ayurveda, Dengue fever is an influenza-like disease spread by female Aedes aegypti mosquitoes. It is otherwise called dandaka jwara in Ayurveda. It is most normal in subtropical, heat, and humidity zones.
Dengue can be asymptomatic, meaning you might not be aware of it even if you’re affected by Dengue. But, at the same time, there can be severe flu-like symptoms in those infected by this virus.
There is no particular medicine for Dengue fever. The illness is treated by dispensing with and dealing with symptoms. Luckily, an assortment of ayurvedic cures like Carica papaya L., Cissampelos pareira L… So on, that can assist with handling something similar by strengthening the immune system and controlling hyperthermia.
Dengue viruses are related to the virus which causes West Nile infection, Chikungunya, Zika viruses, and Yellow Fever. As per Ayurveda, severe symptoms of Dengue are associated with complications like organ impairment, plasma leakage, and severe bleeding.
What Causes Dengue?
Dengue is caused by one of the four Dengue viruses. At the point when a mosquito contaminated with the Dengue infection bites you, the virus can enter your blood and make duplicates of itself. The virus and your immune system reaction can cause you to feel unwell.
The virus can destroy portions of your blood that structure coagulations and give a construction to your veins. Along with this, some specific chemicals that your immune system produces can make your blood spill out of your vessels and cause internal bleeding. This prompts life-threatening symptoms of severe Dengue.
Dengue has become a leading cause of hospitalization and death among children and adults in Asian and Latin American countries. Once recovered from Dengue, it is believed to provide lifelong immunity against serotype or serovar (a group of viruses that cause Dengue; DENV-1, DENV-2, DENV-3, DENV-4). However, cross-immunity works partially, not with every disease caused by serotype.
