HOME REMEDIES FOR MALARIA

Malaria is one of the most widespread diseases in the world. Hundreds of millions of people are affected by malaria, of which there are three main types: vivax, falciparum, and malariae.

When the female of this particular species bites a patient who has malaria, she draws up a small quantity of blood containing the parasites. These parasites then pass through several stages of development within the mosquito’s body, and finally find their way to its salivary glands. About ten days after the mosquito has injected these parasites into a person’s blood stream. Most of them are now within the bred blood cells of the victim.

Many of the parasites are destroyed by the defense system of the body, particularly by the white blood cells in the spleen, liver, and bone marrow. But enough of them survive to cause plenty of trouble.

During the acute attack of malaria, the patient complains of fever, weakness, headache, and chilling sensations. In more severe cases, the attack begins abruptly with shaking chills, fever, and sweating. Between the paroxysms, the patient usually feels miserable and runs a low-grade fever.

The temperature may run to 104 0F., and the patient may complain of severe headache, and may manifest drowsiness, delirium, and confusion.

With this serious complication the patient suffers from jaundice, anemia, severe prostration, and shock.

HOME REMEDIES: MALARIA

Boil 1 glass of water with 1 tspn Cinnamon powder added to it. Drink this after adding a dash of pepper powder and honey to it.

Grapefruit is one of the most effective home remedies for malaria. It should be taken daily

The seeds of the fever nut plant are another effective remedy for malaria. About six grams of these seeds should be given with a cup of water two hours before the expected onset of the paroxysm of fever, and a second dose should be given one hour after the attack.

About two and a half freshly sprouted leaves of datura plant should be made into a pill by rubbing them with jaggery and administered two hours before the onset of the paroxysm.

Prepare an infusion by steeping 15 gm of chirayata in 250 ml of hot water with aromatics like cloves and cinnamon, should be given in doses of 15 to 30 ml.

About three grams of lime should be dissolved in about 60 ml of water and the juice of one lemon added to it. This water should be taken before the onset of the fever.

Alum should be roasted over a hot plate and powdered. Half a teaspoon should be taken about four hours before the expected attack and half a teaspoon every two hours after it. This will give relief.

Take an infusion of holy basil leaves to prevent the attack of malaria.

The juice of about eleven grams of leaves of holy basil mixed with three grams of powder of black pepper can be taken beneficially in the cold stage of the malarial fever.

The best way to reduce temperature naturally during the course of the fever is by means of a cold pack, which can be applied to the whole body.

Malaria can be prevented by protection against mosquito bites, cleanliness of surrounding areas, and ensuring that there is no pool of stagnant water lying around.

Lie on a bed covered with a blanket, for 15 to 20 minutes. Drinking a hot liquid also helps.

Take 10 grams (one-tablespoon) raisins and 10 grams (one tablespoon) fresh ginger. Crush and put in 200-ml. water for one hour. Boil this decoction till the water reduces to 50 ml. Strain and drink while warm.

Exposure to extreme cold or heat, exertion, exercise, mental stress, sexual activity and any other type of physical activity should be avoided until the patient regains strength.

The patient should be given plenty of fluids, fresh fruit juices, and a balanced diet.

Sleep under a mosquito net. Children’s bed should especially be screened by nets.

Small amounts of whole grain bread or biscuits can be taken with milk. Heavy foods that are difficult to digest like fried foods, fast foods, meat, chicken, fish, and raw foods should be completely avoided.

The patient should plenty of rest.

Small quantities of cow milk can be taken two to three times a day

Khichadi is very good with spices like cumin seeds, coriander, turmeric, ginger and salt can be also be added to it.

Eggplant, bitter gourd and cooked radish and barley water is good.
MALARIA - Homeopathic Treatment & Medicines

#Cinchona. [Cinch]
This remedy is most suitable in epidemic and endemic form of chills and fever, being of little if any use in the general malarial cachexia. The paroxysms are irregular and it corresponds more to the tertian type, if to any. The precursory symptoms to the chill are nervous excitement, anxiety, headache, nausea and irritability. The chill is of short duration and it soon becomes mingled with the heat, and the remedy may be said to be one of the thirstless remedies in fever, as there is very little, if any, thirst during the chill and no real thirst during the heat, it being from a desire to moisten the mouth, rather than to quench the thirst, that the patient may desire water. During the fever the veins appear enlarged and there is congestion to the head, redness and heat of face, even though other parts of the body be chilly. During the chill the patient sits near the fire and wraps himself up, but the warmth obtained does no good. During the sweat, however, which is long and profuse, there is much thirst. Cinchona is seldom of use in inveterate cases, where the liver and spleen are hypertrophied or where much quinine has been taken, though a swollen spleen does not contra-indicate the remedy. The apyrexia is marked with debility, restlessness, loss of appetite or great hunger, anaemia, gray complexion, congestions, backache and oedema, scanty urine with brickdust sediment.

#Nux vomica. [Nux-v]
Nux vomica is another remedy not so much indicated in inveterate cases, but it corresponds to cases where the gastro-bilious symptoms are prominent, and accompanied by nervous symptoms proceeding from the spinal cord. The chill is perhaps more commonly quotidian, coming on in the afternoon and evening . The chill is predominant and starts with blueness of the fingernails, preceded by aching of the body, gaping and yawing, there being no special thirst, but a dull frontal headache and vertigo and nausea, disordered stomach and weakness of the limbs. There is no relief from covering or from external heat, and another condition may be an alternation of chills and heat. Eucalyptus globulus. Also useful in some forms. There are no characteristic indications. Pulsatilla. Long chill, little heat and no thirst. Menyanthes. Chill predominates without thirst; icy coldness of finger tips. Ignatia. Warmth from stove relieves; thirst only during chill. Lachesis. Desires heat, but no relief therefrom. A most important remedy after abuse of quinine. Carbo vegetabilis. Old cases, with coldness of feet.

#Arsenicum. [Ars]
This is one of our most important remedies, and, next to Cinchona, it is more frequently indicated than any other. The characteristics are intensity and long duration of paroxysms, especially of the burning heat, the unquenchable thirst, anxiety and restlessness, a small, quick pulse and a clean tongue. The cleaner the tongue in violent paroxysms the more is it indicated. After the attack there is pallor and exhaustion. It is the sovereign remedy for the malarial cachexia; it antidotes quinine and its attacks are accompanied with a high grade of gastric irritability. Hughes and Kippax, however, do not consider Arsenic as being suited to the typical forms of intermittent fever, but rather to those types known as typo-malarial fevers. Other characteristics of Arsenicum are the illy- defined paroxysms with, perhaps, one of the stages wanting the collapse of vital power and the marked prostration. The longer the disease has lasted the more likely will Arsenicum be indicated.

#Natrum muriaticum. [Nat-m]
This is a remedy seldom of use in recent cases corresponding more to inveterate and badly treated cases. The stages are very unequal, the chill perhaps being continuous, heat moderate with violent headache, and perspiration wanting or excessive and debilitating and relieving the headache. The complexion is yellowish gray and the spleen and liver are enlarged. Perhaps the most typical case calling for this remedy would have a chill commencing about ten o'clock in the morning, beginning in the back and feet with great thirst pains in the bones, pains in the back,headache, debility, accompanied with shortness of breath; and especially if fever blisters or hydroa form on the lips; this is most characteristic. Such patients during the apyerxia the apyrexia are dejected and apprehensive, have a swallow complexion and white coated tongue, sleepy in the daytime and sleepless at night. It especially corresponds to cases where there is a psoric taint. Capsicum. Chill prevails, intense thirst, drinking causes an aggravation ; the chill begins in the back; heat applied relieves. Thirst is waiting during the hot stage.

#Eupatorium perfoliatum. [Eup-per]
The bone pains and the vomiting as the chill passes off are the chief characteristics of this remedy. There are gastric symptoms similar to Ipecac; there is muscular soreness all over the body, and the chill is apt to occur on the morning of one day and in the evening of the next; it is preceded by thirst and bitter vomiting. The patient knows the chill is coming on because he cannot drink enough, the chill commences in the small of the back and is accompanied with a sense of pressure over the skull cap. Bayes considers this pressure and weight over the forehead the surest indication for the remedy. With the heat, the aching increases and the sweat is inconsiderable or absent. The paroxysms calling for Eupatorium are irregular in their development. The liver is at fault and there is a yellow tinge to the complexion. Cedron. Great regularity marks this remedy, also violent symptoms; headache. It is useful in masked agues,and the agues of warm and damp, low, marshy regions. Congestion to the head is a marked symptoms, during apyrexia malaise and debility. Apis. No thirst, with sweat. According to Wolf, one of the most important remedies; chill with thirst at 3 or 4 P.M., protracted cases, nettle rash. Rhus. Chill begins in the thigh and is usually attended with a dry cough.

#Ipecac. [Ip]
In the milder epidemics where the tertian form predominates, Ipecac may prove useful. The chill is most marked and the fever is accompanied with the gastric symptoms, loss of appetite, loathing of food, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea. It is often the remedy in the beginning of intermittents, suiting especially sensitive young patients. The thirst is wanting or slight during the chill and the chill predominates; the heat is trifling and the sweat is usually missing , or there may be a short chill and long fever, and during the paroxysms there may be a suffocative cough and spasmodic dyspnoea. During the apyrexia there are many gastric symptoms, sallow skin, headache, nausea and vomiting. It is the remedy when the case seems all mixed up; a few doses will often clear the case and lead to the proper remedy.

#Gelsemium. [Gels]
This remedy has no special hepatic; gastric or intestinal disturbances and it suits especially malarial conditions in children. The chill runs up the back or starts from the feet. There is a bruised feeling all over and a characteristic is that the patient wants to be held during the chill to prevent his shaking. The characteristic time for the chill is prevent his shaking. The characteristic time for the chill is about the middle of the day. The heat is attended with red face. Drowsiness, dizziness and dullness are characteristic symptoms. Thirst is not marked.

#Chininum sulphuricum. [Chin-s]
This remedy has great periodicity ; chill towards evening with slight or violent thirst and after the sweat there is much prostration, great weakness at the epigastrium and debility. It has been found that the lower potencies act better, such as two-grain doses of the IX trituration every two hours. During the paroxysm a pain in the dorsal vertebrae on pressure is a good indication.
