Hello Friends! Hope you guys are enjoying the monsoons. But with monsoons comes the deadly fear of DENGUE, CHIKUNGUNYA, MALARIA etc. Last year one of my friends suffered from these scary disease called DENGUE, where his platelet count decreased below 10 whereas the standard is approx 150.  Doctors were not very optimistic about his condition.

We then approached an ayurvedic scholar who introduced us to this remedy of Papaya leaves. So let me quickly tell you how this can be used :


Fresh Papaya Leaves(2 nos. for a single child and 6-7 nos. for an adult)

Honey (4 tsp)


  1. Wash the papaya leaves clean.
  2. Grind the leaves  fine and squeeze the juice out into a small bowl.
  3. Add around 4 tsp honey to papaya leaves juice(Honey is added since the papaya leaves juice is extremely bitter to taste, making it difficult to consume).
  4. This medication should be given in following proportion: A child of around 8-10 yrs – 4 tsp (2 tsp in the morning and 2 tsp at night).  An adult – 10 tsp in the entire day.(at regular intervals).

Note: Papaya leaves are believed to increase your immune by boosting the platelet count(which are attacked in the case of dengue).

For your information; my friend who was bedridden recovered in just a span of 7-8 days. Doctors also witnessed an increase in his platelet count.

So take care of your health and enjoy the monsoons.
