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 started to fill up her lungs. She had difficulty in breathing. She was only 32-year old. Doctor said there's no cure for dengue.. We just had 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 squeeze the juice out for her. The next day, her platelet count started to increase, her fever subsided. We continued to feed her with papaya juice and she recovered after 3 days!!! Amazing but it's true. I found that it's also good when one is having sore throat

Accordingly it is raw papaya leaves, 2pcs just cleaned, pounded and squeezed with filter cloth. You will only get one tablespoon per leaf. So two tablespoons per serving once a day. Do not boil or cook or rinse with hot water, it will lose its strength. Only the leafy part and no stem or sap.. It is very bitter and you have to swallow

That is very good. I have read up on a lot of natural remedies. I am very glad that this papaya juice saved your friends life. Doctor's don't belive in natural remides but at the same time I belive that they do help. Prayer also helps alot also.

I myself go for natural remedies for minor sickness. Medical doctors are trained to cure and dispense more scientific medication which has undergone lab tests. But unfortunately not all medications are suitable for certain people. Doctors are not 100% sure that certain medication will cure his patient. It's all trial and error. While natural remedies have undergone the test of time and are effective. Prayer means a lot to me and it has helped me in good and bad times.
