Dear All,
I would like to share this interesting discovery from a classmate’s son who has just recovered from dengue fever. Apparently, his son was in the critical stage at the SJMC ICU when his platelet count dropped to 15 after blood transfusion also.

His father was so worried that he seeked another friend’s recommendation and his son was saved. He confessed to me that he give his son raw juice of the papaya leaves. From a platelet count as low as 45 after blood transfusion, it jumped to 135 after drinking the raw papaya leaf juice. Even the doctors and nurses were surprised. After the second day he was discharged. So he asked me to pass this good news around.

 

Accordingly it is raw papaya leaves 2 pcs just clean and pound and squeeze the juice thro cloth filter. You will only get one tablespoon per leaf. So two tablespoon per serving once a day. No need to boil or cook or rinse with hot water, it will lose its strength. Only the leafy part has to be taken, no stem or sap. It is very bitter and you have to swallow it. But it works wonders!!!!

 

Papaya Juice – Cure for Dengue

 

You may have heard this elsewhere, but if not, I am glad to inform you that papaya juice is a natural cure for dengue fever. As dengue fever is rampant.


Now, I think it’s good to share this with all.

 

A friend of mine had dengue last year. It was a very serious situation for her as her platelet count had dropped to 28,000 after 3 days in hospital and water had started to fill in her lungs. She had difficulty in breathing. She was only 32-years old. Doctor said there’s no cure for dengue. We just have to wait for her body immune system to build up resistance against dengue and fight its own battle.

She already had 2 blood transfusions and all of us were praying very hard as her platelet continued to drop since the first day she was admitted.

Fortunately her mother-in-law heard that papaya juice would help to reduce the fever and got some papaya leaves, pounded them and squeezed the juice out for her. The next day, her platelet count started to increase, her fever subsided. She was given papaya juice regularly and she recovered after 3 days!!!

Amazing but true.

Papaya juice has a cooling effect thus; it helps to reduce the heat in one’s body. I found that it’s also good when one is having sore throat.

Dengue


Dengue Fever: a word of Caution
*********************************************************************

DENGUE FEVER: A WORD OF CAUTION.

This disease is FATAL – even a delay of 8-10 hrs can put the patient in an irrecoverable position – so please take it SERIOUSLY. This is important for those who plan to visit Delhi in the near future…

CAUSE & EFFECT OF THE DISEASE
——————————

The fever is caused by a mosquito bite. The Mosquito acts as a carrier of the Dengue Virus.The virus’s main affect is on the PLATELET production. Normally the platelets in our body last for about 4 days and the body replenishes them when required. This virus DESTROYS THE BODY’s CAPACITY TO PRODUCE NEW PLATELET’s (during the period it is effective). The PLATELET count for a normal person varies from 1.5 Lakh – 2.5 Lakh per unit volume. On getting infected the patients PLATELET COUNT STARTS FALLING. A PLATELET count BELOW 1.O Lakh /volume is ALARMING – immediate medical attention is required. A PLATELET count BELOW 50K is FATAL.

Note : A fall in platelet count PREVENTS FORMATION OF CLOTS – and this leads to HAEMORRAGE – which results into both INTERNAL & EXTERNAL BLEEDING – once bleeding starts the situation is almost IRRECOVERABLE.

SYMPTOMS

UNABATED FEVER is the most prominent symptom. Fever may also be accompanied with SHIVERING / BODY ACHE / ACHE IN THE EYES. Howver it must be noted that these symptoms MAY OR MAYNOT MANIFEST TILL VERY LATE. Appearence of RASHES ON THE BODY is a definative symtom – but again IT MAY NOT MANIFEST TILL VERY LATE.

The MOST RELIABLE symtom is A FALL IN THE PLATELET COUNT.

DETECTION
———-

The most reliable method of detection is to MEASURE THE PLATELET COUNT EVENING & MORNING – I reemphasize that PLATELET COUNT should be measured TWICE A DAY – since if it is Dengue then the PLATELET COUNT WILL FALL WITHIN 7-8 HRS. This fall may start at anytime during the course of infection and therfore keep on measuring the PLATELET count from the onset of the fever till it subsides.

NOTE: Please measure the PLATELET even if fever of any type occurs – do not w ait to verify if it is Dengue since you can never be sure. Also do not BELEIVE ANY DOCTOR IF HE SAYS NOT TO TAKE PLATELET COUNT DAILY – in my friend’s case the Doctor at Navin

Upchar delayed sampling of Platelet count which ultimately led to haemo rrage.

PREVENTION
————

1. AS A RULE WEAR FULL SLEAVES SHIRT , SHOES and SOCKS. Cover as much part of your body as possible.

2. SPRAY YOUR HOUSES AND WORKPLACE WITH MOSQUITO REPELLANT.

3. REMOVE ANY STAGNANT WATER/ DIRT from your house or workplace.

CURE
——

As is known to everybody VIRAL DISEASES HAVE NO CURE you only TRY TO SUBSTITUE FOR THOSE body functions that have stopped functioning.The ONLY cure is to CONSTANTLY REPLENISH THE BODY WITH PLATELETS. This requires giving BLOOD / PLATELET. Early detection and timely input will prevent HAEMORRAGE. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT HAEMORRAGE MUST BE PREVENTED BECAUSE ONCE HAEMORRAGE STARTS YOUR BODY PARTS WILL GET AFFTECTED AND STOP FUNCTIONING and finally it leads to Death.In my friends case detection was done only after bleeding started – this lead first to failure of his LUNGS, then an infection in the BRAIN, then the kidneys and finally the HEART.

INFRASTRUCTURE (Hospital & facilities)

—————————————

From Infrastructure point of view The machine which EXTRACTS PLATELETS FROM BLOOD is the most needed facility. Presently APOLLO, ESCORTS, DHARMSHILA & RED CROSS have these machines (These are those I know of – there maybe other hospitals as well.). At preset APOLLO is best placed to deal with Dengue patie nts since it has the dedicated machine for internal use and you do not have to run around for the PLATELETS – It may also deal with complication. Other good Hospitals are BATRA, HOLY FAMILY, and JASLOK.

All Blood Banks except RED CROSS charge money for a unit of blood. The charges are ranging from Rs 1200/- (at ESCORTS) to Rs 9000/- per unit (Note that you need to donate a unit of blood apart from this charge.). The platelet extraction process takes almost 5-7 hrs (in present rush times). Apart from this you need to arrnge for Donors – this is an arduos task. A patient may need anything from 10-50 units. of Blood/platelet.

CAUTION: Presently all Hospitals are overcrowded – APOLLO does not have any free beds and so is the case with BATRA, JASLOK, HOLY FAMILY. ICU beds are even more in short supply and therfore in the eventuality of the case being serous the difficulties are greater. In my friends case we could not get a ICU bed at any of the good hospitals and had to finally admit him at MODI, saket.

I reemphasize that the disease is FATAL and even a delay of 8-10 hrs can lead to loss of life. At this time taking PREVENTIVE MEASURES (covering the body, spraying) and measuring PLATELET COUNTS in case of fever of any type are the most important things to remember.

Total white blood cells count: In case of dengue, this test will reveal less than normal number of leukocytes (4000-10,000/cm) or white blood cells in the blood.

Also DO NOT TAKE ASPIRIN if you are sufferring from Dengue.
Drink PLENTY OF FLUIDS.

This is written by Mayank who works in Ranbaxy. So go through it and know about the actual causes of HIV(AIDS).

The purpose of posting this to my blog is to make you aware of the nonsense stuff from the net, don’t panic if you find a Needle in the Theatre or some threatening note of infection.

From Mayank:

Dear Friends!!!

It’s good to be well informed about HIV. There was a story on junk some days back where it is said that a boy got infected by HIV virus by eating pani-puri. And there have also been rumors where people are affected by the HIV virus when they got pricked by an HIV infected needle in theaters which is rubbish.

So read along!

RANBAXY….

I have seen this below mentioned mail floating across group email & I feel its my moral responsibility to correct all misconceptions regarding

HIV /AIDS.

I can do this because I am educated enough to comment on this and for those who don’t know my profession …I am serving as Brand Manager (Product Manager) handling anti HIV/AIDS portfolio (called as Antiretroviral Drugs) in Ranbaxy.

Please read following points carefully & don’t send emails related to Medical ailments without having complete knowledge about it (even partial knowledge could be grossly dangerous).

* HIV (virus) requires *ONLY* *Blood or Semen* as medium to transmit from one body to another.

* HIV *can not* transmit even through *Saliva*(mucous) i.e. even if HIV-infected patient coughs or smooches and another person is exposed to his sputum (cough) or saliva, the virus still can not transmit because concentration of virus particles in sputum is almost NIL & exposure to air anyway kills virus in fraction of seconds.

* In case an HIV-infected person gets an injury (like the cut in below mentioned story) and he is bleeding, the virus can transmit to another person only if another person has a cut/wound in his body & that too when blood from both person comes in contact with each other* (this is also very very rare unless bleeding is very high) and not otherwise.

* HIV can *never survive in any other liquid* medium also other than blood or semen (& please for God sake … never in Pani Puri wala pani)

* Even if one drinks an HIV infected blood (or semen) of someone (ingest through Gastro Intestinal track), the virus can not survive in the acidic pH of stomach*. Highest extent of acidity is 0 (practically not possible) so imagine 1 as pH which is in our stomach. (This pH can burn your own finger in less than a second if you dip in that acid).

* Exposure of less than 1 second in AIR KILLS the HIV virus*(hence story of needle pricks in Cinema theatres is a crap). Even if blood from a wound (of infected person) dries up (*blood clot*), *the virus dies*and can not infect anyone else

* HIV transmission is *ONLY* an *INFECTION* i.e.entrance of virus in one’s body. It *DOES NOT MEAN AIDS*.

* An HIV-infected person (after entrance of virus) can progress to a condition of AIDS only after *8 to 10 YEARS *(not in 15 days as in the Pani Puri story)

* It is *not HIV (virus) that kills a human*…..the virus attacks immune cells (cells that fight against foreign pathogens/antigens) and hence a person’s ability to fight against infections & diseases slowly diminishes and person ultimately dies of a disease which could be as simple as TB

* Most importantly, HIV is no longer dreadful disease … it is “*CHRONIC MANAGEABLE DISEASE*” just like Diabetes or Hypertension.

* If there is anything you need to be careful from to prevent HIV is Unsafe sex*, *Blood transfusion* (check before taking) /Blood donation (use sterilized needles only) and any *blood contact during an accident *or so where amount of bleeding is very high.

Plz spread this message to avoid rumors and 2 educate people.

1. No Breakfast
People who do not take breakfast are going to have a lower blood sugar level. This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain causing brain degeneration.
2. Overeating
It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power.
3. Smoking
It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to Alzheimer disease.
4. High Sugar consumption
Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development
5. Air Pollution
The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency
6. Sleep Deprivation
Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells.
7. Head covered while sleeping
Sleeping with the head covered, increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects
8. Working your brain during illness

Working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a decrease in effectiveness of the brain as well as damage the brain.
9. Lacking in stimulating thoughts
Thinking is the best way to train our brain, lacking in brain stimulation thoughts may cause brain shrinkage.
10. Talking Rarely
Intellectual conversations will promote the efficiency of the brain

———————————

The main causes of liver damage are:

1. Sleeping too late and waking up too late are main cause.
2. Not urinating in the morning.
3. Too much eating.
4. Skipping breakfast.
5. Consuming too much medication.
6. Consuming too much preservatives, additives, food coloring, and artificial sweetener.
7. Consuming unhealthy cooking oil. As much as possible reduce cooking oil use when frying, which includes even the best cooking oils like olive oil. Do not consume fried foods when you are tired, except if the body is very fit.
8. Consuming raw (overly done) foods also add to the burden of liver. Veggies should be eaten raw or cooked 3-5 parts. Fried veggies should be finished in one sitting, do not store.

————————————

 

We should prevent this without necessarily spending more. We just have to adopt a good daily lifestyle and eating habits. Maintaining good eating habits and time condition are very important for our bodies to absorb and get rid of unnecessary chemicals according to “schedule

Because:

Evening at 9 – 11pm: is the time for eliminating unnecessary/toxic chemicals (detoxification) from the antibody system (lymph nodes). This time duration should be spent by relaxing or listening to music. If during this time a housewife is still in an unrelaxed state such as washing the dishes or monitoring children doing their homework, this will have a negative impact on health

Evening at 11pm – 1am: is the detoxification process in the liver, and ideally should be done in a deep sleep state.

Early morning 1 – 3am: detoxification process in the gall, also ideally done in a deep sleep state.

Early morning 3 – 5am: detoxification in the lungs. Therefore there will sometimes be a severe cough for cough sufferers during this time. Since the detoxification process had reached the respiratory tract, there is no need to take cough medicine so as not to interfere with toxin removal process

Morning 5 – 7am: detoxification in the colon, you should empty your bowel.

Morning 7 – 9am: absorption of nutrients in the small intestine, you should be having breakfast at this time. Breakfast should be earlier, before 6:30am, for those who are sick. Breakfast before 7:30am is very beneficial to those wanting to stay fit. Those who always skip breakfast, they should change their habits, and it is still better to eat breakfast late until 9 – 10am rather than no meal at all

Sleeping so late and waking up too late will disrupt the process of removing unnecessary chemicals. Aside from that, midnight to 4:00 am is the time when the bone marrow produces blood. Therefore, have a good sleep and don’t sleep late.

….TAKE CARE OF YOUR HEALTH…..
