Herbal Treatment For Dengue and Chikungunya. A Trio

Although Dengue and Chikungunya are fevers, their attack should be considered an emergency. Platelet count falls very rapidly and if remedial measures are not as swift as the drop in platelet count, the patient will deteriorate. Herbs taken in the crude form as a powder or as a decoction, become bio available to the body very slowly. When rapid action is required a tincture is the best. Fortunately, these tinctures are available at Homeopathy dispensaries. In Homeopathy these tinctures are known by their botanical names.
Night Jasmine (Harshingar in India) is known as Nyctanthes Arbortristis.
Tinospora Cordifolia (Giloy In India) is known as Tinospora Cordifolia.
Yarrow (Gandrain in India) is known as Achillea Millefolium.
Buy tincture of all the three above from a Homeopathic shop. Give 10 drops of Night Jasmine (in some water) to start the treatment. After three hours give ten drops of Yarrow. After three hours give 10 drops of Tinospora Cordifolia. Keep repeating for the next three days. The fever should become normal within one day. However, the drop in fever must not be considered as a cure. The remedies should be continued for at least 3 days.
Note. All three remedies are required. Night Jasmine to control the destruction of platelets and rebuild them. Yarrow to ensure that there is no hemorrhage. Tinospora Cordifolia to bring down the fever. Do not change the order. The primary aim is to stop the drop of platelet count. The next important thing is to ensure that there is no bleeding. Fever is the least important aspect.

Yes Rajiv, it is. We are lucky to be blessed by this miraculous nature. The nature has offered us with Herbs having both medicinal and nutritious benefits. I am a firm believer of their healing powers.

There was a time, when I was so much into allopathic medicines. No doubt, they did provide me a quick fix, but at the cost of developing new problems, side effects. Got fed up. Thanks to one of my herbal practitioner friends, that i realized those ill effects slowly degrading me from inside. Body became used to those drugs. Sluggish mind and body, did not feel like doing anything. That time really gives me creeps. Then i switched onto Herbs, Have been feeling great. I have been using Giloy, Gojiberry, Gynostemma, Shatavari, Pearl, Ganoderma and Indian Gooseberry for almost years now. These herbs have nourished me from within. Feel vibrant, vivid and actually alive. No kidding, my experience....

I can swear on anything to make people aware of the worth of this treasure. The truth has changed my entire life and the outlook towards it.

This is good to know such useful information about GILOY. Some one told me that the roots of this creeper, those who are hanging in air can cure baldness. is it true?
Kushal Pandit
30 Dec 2015
Dear Pk Gupta. Giloy does provide noursihment to Hair follicles, It is true. You may take one capsule of Giloy daily, for a month.
Please be informed that, the growth of hair is controlled by Kidneys. You should try Gokharu capsules for a month, take one capsule daily for 30 days. And now, if we talk about the most effective cure for Baldness, then Eclipta oil is the best bet.
You may use Aerial roots of banyan tree with Lotus roots. Dry the roots, make the powder and boil in coconut powder. Store it in a bottle and apply. Study the results and if it suits you, use it for at least for 2 months. Regards

Hi Traci,

Individually Tinospora and Curcumin ( Turmeric ) both are good for immune system. The combination of both is rarely used for boosting immunity. However, both of these herbs may be the ingredient of some immunity boosting supplements along with other herbs.
For boosting the immunity Astragalus, Korean Ginsing and Echinacea are thought to be among the top herbs. These herbs are available in capsule form. You can buy them online on any e-commerce websites.
Always consult your health care provider before taking any herb or herbal supplement.

25 Aug 2016
NOrmal diabetes range is between 70 and 110. This is normal reading on fasting. And yours is 99, so I guess you do not need Giloy. Why do you wish to take Giloy, are you suffering from High Blood Pressure?

I am a 67 year old person with diabetic for the last 12 years and on medication. Now for the last two months I started drinking Giloy water ( prepared by putting the crushed stem of Giloy, after the removal of outer dry skin, in a glass of water previous night) empty stomach every morning. To my surprise FBS has come down to the level of 70 to 80 mg. But I still continue my alopathic tablets prescribed by the physician. Should I reduce the dosage or discontinue the drug based on my sugar level? I also want to know whether Giloy in its raw state contains mercury which may harmful to human health? Kindly clarify.
10 Nov 2016
Pravin. Once you feel that the sugar levels are normal and in control, then you may reduce the dosage of allopathic medicines accordingly. And now you can stop the Giloy and start with the herb called Gudmar. Because, Giloy is tend to lower the blood pressure. So, you might have problems if your blood pressure is low. Gudmar is the best choice for Diabetes.

Ad. K. Alam. You may use Giloy stem juice on an empty stomach, but you have to be cautious. This herb is known to drastically lower the High Blood Pressure and you already are taking allopathic drugs for the same. So, a close note of the BP readings has to be done. You can adjust the dosage according to the readings, the dosage of the drugs can be reduced if the BP readings fall beyond the normal level.
Please note that herbs may interact with the allopathic drugs, so it is better to be cautious always.

Take Jarul herb for your Diabetes.Take Giloy for diabetes, only if you do not suffer from low blood pressure problem. You may have one tablet daily. and keep monitoring your sugar as well as blood pressure readings.

My father was diagnosed with prostate cancer with bone metastasis . He is taking Giloy three times a day. As , he has stopped taking sugar completely, his sugar level has reduced to 68 ( fasting). Should he reduce the intake of Giloy ?

Yes, he should. Because Giloy is known to reduce the sugar levels. He can take Giloy once a day. Give him 50 ml Soursop juice every day for a month.
Also, he should take Epilobium Parviflorum herb. The remedy is available n the form of capsules, tea and tincture. He may take any, as per the availability.

My father was diagnosed with metastatic prostate CA. He is taking Giloy thrice a day. As you mentioned Giloy should not be taken with alcohol on your website, but cannabis indica mother tincture is alcohol based ( all tinctures contain some alcohol , as per my information). So , should he not take cannabis indica mother tincture with Giloy ?

https://herbpathy.com/Glossary-meaning-of-Tincture-hid-d We have shared with you the link which will take you to the meaning and method of preparing a tincture.
Tincture is just another form of medicine, as the herb is in its capsule form, pill form, tea or decoction. It is a form of medicine, with alcohol added to it. The mother tincture of Giloy herb ( prepared in alcohol ) is known as Tinospora Cordifolia. The only reason that your father can not take Giloy with Cannabis tincture or herb is that both these herb are known to reduce the Blood Pressure and when taken together, his blood pressure might get too low and this would be a problem for him.

if fresh leaves or stem of giloy is not available, can giloy powder available with ayurvedic herbs dealers be used?

if high BP medicines are taken should we stop them before using giloy?
27 Jan 2020
Dear N Ramu
Yes, you can take Giloy in powdered form. You should not stop the usage of allopathic drugs instantly. It might bring side effects since the body's dependency on them. You can lower the allopathic dosage and simultaneously take Giloy. Take 1 teaspoon of Giloy twice a day.
Please consult your Health care provider before altering the dosage to avoid any side effects.
