Alternative Treatment: Food Recipes to Cure Dengue

Learn how to prepare simple recipes believed to be miracle cure for dengue fever. There is no harm in trying as they are all the gift of nature that can be used to ease the suffering of dengue patients and probably could also save some lives.

Dengue is an acute infectious viral disease transmitted by the Aedes mosquitoes. Common in tropical climates, the dengue fever is also known as “break-bone fever” due to the severe joint and muscle pain suffered by the patients. Other symptoms of dengue include severe headache, fever, and intense joint pain, which will usually last about a week. The fever will usually subside after 2 to 5 days and thereafter will rise again followed by rashes on the skin. The dengue hemorrhagic fever is another form of the disease, which is more serious and can be fatal.

Sadly, at this moment there is no specific treatment for dengue except for supportive therapy of fluid and electrolyte balance, prevention and treatment of shock and treatment of coagulation disorders.

Even though there is no specific cure or treatment for dengue, there are several types of food or recipe that can be easily prepared at home and used to treat dengue patients. I have listed the TOP 3 miracle recipes as follows:


First in my list would be the “Crab Soup”, which is delicious and can be easily prepared. Believe me that after 3 servings of this crab soup, the patient’s blood platelets will increase and fever will subside. Just give it a try.


  • 2 crabs which have been cleaned and cut into two (can be any type, for instance flower crab or tiger crab)
  • 1 inch of ginger (cut into small pieces)
  • 1 clove of garlic (crushed)
  • 1 shallot (pounded)
  • Cooking oil (2 spoonful)
  • 4 cups of water
  • Salt
  • 5 Peppercorns (pounded)
  • 1 lemon grass (crushed)
  • Juice from 1 lime (squeezed)
  • 1 strip each of coriander leaf and Chinese leak (cut into small pieces)

How to cook

  • Heat the cooking oil in a pot. Put in the shallot, garlic, ginger and peppercorn and fry (in low heat) until you can smell the sweet and tangy aroma.
  • Put in the crabs and flip the crabs occasionally until both sides turned red
  • Put in water and lemon grass
  • Turn the heat low and cover the pot with a lid. Bring the soup to boil for at least 15 minutes.
  • Put in the lime juice and some salt (as desired)
  • Stir the ingredients in the pot for 5 minutes
  • Put in the coriander leaf and Chinese leak on the dish
  • The soup is now ready to be served


The juice is quite bitter but I don’t think so it’s that bad and it works wonders too. Please ensure that the dengue patients get one serving of this juice, once a day. It has cooling effects and it can bring down the fever as well as increase the patient’s blood platelets.


  • 2 pieces of papaya leaves
  • Sugar syrup
  • Water (half a cup)

How to prepare the juice?

  • Clean the leaves and only take the leafy parts. Throw away the stem.
  • Pound the leaves and squeeze the juice through a strainer, preferably filter made of cloth. Don’t be discouraged as you can only get about one tablespoon of juice from 2 pieces of leaves.
  • Put in the juice, water and sugar syrup into a glass and give it a stir
  • Put some ice cubes if you like
  • Drink it all. You won’t regret.
  • Please note that the juice should not be boiled, rinsed or cooked using hot water as it will lose all its medicinal strength.


Scientific name: Centella asiatica

The juice is cooling, nice taste and it works wonders too. Please ensure that the dengue patients get at least one serving of this juice per day. Besides having cooling effects, it can help bring down the fever as well as increase the patient’s blood platelets.


  • 1 bunch of Indian pennyworth leaves
  • Sugar syrup
  • Water (one glass)

How to prepare the juice?

  • Clean the leaves
  • Pound the leaves and squeeze the juice through a strainer, preferably filter made of cloth
  • Put the juice, water and sugar syrup in a glass and give it a stir
  • Put some ice cubes (if you prefer)
  • Ready to be served

Please note that currently there is no proof from the modern medical point of view to verify that the recipes above really works. However, I believe that there are many people out there who have tried these recipes and found them as the miracle cure for dengue fever.

After all, there is no harm in trying as they are all the gift of nature. Perhaps the above recipes can be used to ease the suffering of dengue patients and probably the alternative treatment could also save some lives.

  25. Until now there is no treatment/prevention drug / vaccine formulated to cure dengue.

    My son got stricken by dengue virus, he had a high fever 39-40. On its 2nd day, I brought him to his pediatrician for check-up, he gave paracetamol and said we have to come back after 3days so that he can ascertain whether it is dengue or not because dengue virus will be seen in the lab test only after 3-4days.

    On the 3rd day, we went back to the hospital for blood test and it was found out that it is really a dengue fever. So, right there and then we arranged for our child admission in the said hospital. My wife became so hysterical that time because our 6 yr old Bob Andre was so weak and kept on complaining his abdominal pain. There was blood in his nose and lips cracked with juicy blood.

    As it has been said and said…that dengue has no cure, we really don’t know what to do. We were at panicked.

    And his doctor told us, that the Dengue Virus hit my child is the most dangerous one. Majority of its victim become so ill or sent in to Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

    Luckily, we have 4 boxes stock of Sodium Ascorbate (Crystalline Granules) every 1 hour I diluted 5capsules (2500mg) in 200ml of water and have drank to my child together with boiled tawa-tawa. After 5days with he is doing well and regain his health condition. He had consumed 250capsules of sodium ascorbate or 125,000mg and 1 liter of tawa-tawa juice.

    Tawa-tawa with Sodium Ascorbate is very effective to cure dengue. But, Sodium Ascorbate is very best and effective in dengue curing dengue or regaining health condition of the patient if it is given in IV (Intravenous) from 125,000mg to 250,000. My friend doctor in Manila has tried this procedure to his patients.

    As of this writing, my child is scheduled to be discharged in the hospital.

  26. My father is 71 and recently was deducted with Dengue. Read the recepies and will try with Papaya leaf recepie. Any other suggestions will be appreciated.

  27. From where to get tawa tawa juice

  28. My wife was infected with Dengue virus and is in hospital for the past 8 days. It started with severe headache, nausea and giddiness. She was administered with IV from day 1 and it went on for 5 days. The blood test results showed positive for IMg Antibody. Initially they told it could be typhoid. However, her blood plateletes count was going down every day and then the doctors diagnosed it as dengue. As there is no treatment available for this, they were giving only symptomatic treatment. On day 4 -5, rashes started appearing all over her body. The plateletes count was 2,60,000 on the 1st day and it was down to 50000 on day 6. And we were told to be ready for blood transfusion to increase the count.

    Then I found out about these alternate medicines. I wanted to try out the simple one, that of papaya leaves. I gave her a spoon of papaya leaves juice once a day for two days. On the second day, the count has gone upto 75000. We were all jumping and she could be discharged from the hospital tomorrow. Thanks everyone for suggesting this treatment. It worked miracles for us.

  29. papaya leaf juice makes my sick gone and dizziness thanks lord

  30. a week ago my daughter had pancytopenia, which leads to aplastic anemia that may also may lead to be a leukemia her temp was 39-40 for 7 days, she was confined two weeks, one doctor suggest gave her colostrum milk powder, and i mixed with tawa-tawa syrup with quail egg yolks then after two days twice a day and after 2 days she had no fever,its like a miracle she recovered sooner, some doctors discouraged us before but with lots of prayers she was discharged from hospital because of rapid improvement of blood parameters, because we are Jehovah’s Witness and support bloodless medicine i would be glad to assist online,

  31. Is there any scientific study or clinical study to support this? It is a trend of the dengue virus that after days of low platelet it will just go up even without medicines whatsoever, you just need plenty of fluids, rest and eating a lot to fight off the virus. I think it is irresponsible to recommend this without any clinical study to support all the benefits and side effects. I gave this to my son who has dengue. Aside from the low platelet and white blood cells, he was feeling well. But after giving him the juice, it had a reaction in his stomach and made him uncomfortable. I stopped giving it to him.

  32. may papaya leave juice is good treatment in dengue fever..

  33. use papaya juice works relatives used it and r cured.

  34. all i want is to know what the immunization is 2 hemorrhagic fever is
