Dengue Fever can be cured by a simple weed!
I heard in the AM radio (DZMM) a while ago that the number of victims of Dengue still keeps on rising. This is one of the diseases that until now has no approved medicine or vaccine that will make you vulnerable from it.
Two members of my family already had dengue a few years ago (my sister and my nephew) and thankfully they’ve been okay. But since it’s rainy season, mosquitoes that carry the dreaded Dengue virus are once again striking.
I was surprised when the radio commentator told a story. He said that it was texted to him by one of his friend who happen to be in the province (I can’t remember the exact place). He said that one of his companions had a dengue fever and since the hospital is very crowded they have no choice but to travel for 12 hrs. to go to another hospital. The problem is that the blood platelet of his companion is dropping very fast so he called his doctor in Manila and asked what to do. The doctor said to look for Tawa-Tawa weeds, boil it and let the dengue victim drink it. They did what the doctor suggested and miraculously in no time the fever subsided and when they arrived at the hospital, his platelet was stabilized.
It’s my 1st time to hear that type of weed and I was very curious what it looks like that’s why I researched about it. I found out that many attested that they were cured by this weed when they had dengue. But, there is no study that says that this weed is an effective cure for dengue hemorrhagic fever when the patient drinks its boiled water extract, that’s why we still need to be cautious.
This is what the Tawa Tawa weeds look like.
and also the recipe on how to do the boiling the proper way:
- Take 5 to 6 full whole Tawa Tawa plants.
- Cut off the roots
- Wash and clean
- Fill your boiling pot with clean water.
- Boil the Tawa Tawa for 1 (one) minute in a slow rolling boil.
- Pour the tawa tawa water and let cool.
- Let the dengue fever victim drink only the tawa tawa water for 24 hours.
- Sip 1 to 1.5 glasses of tawa tawa water every 1 hour
