Ayurvedic Remedies To Boot Immunity And Treat Malaria

Caused by Plasmodium parasites malaria is a life-threatening disease. When the female Anopheles mosquito bites the parasites are transmitted. Once the parasites are introduced in the host body through the bites of an infected mosquito, they rapidly multiply in the host’s liver and then begin infecting and destroying red blood cells.

Traditional medicines have been treating malaria for thousands of years. Study has shown that some plants such as Tinospora cordifolia (guduchi) and Cissampelos pareira (akanadi) -commonly used in Ayurveda  - could help treat malaria.

Found in tropical parts of India these plants are used to treat many ailments, including ulcers, dysentery, diabetes, and urinary diseases. Conceivably, the cost of treatment and difficulties in access to treatment, or increasing drug resistance has made natural remedies an important source of natural cure.

Here are a few Ayurvedic home remedies that can help treat malaria and speed up the healing process.

  • Ginger:   Ginger contains many compounds that can help act as an Immune Booster for your system and prevent it from falling prey to disease-causing bacteria. To use ginger for malaria, you can sip on some warm ginger water.
  • Cinnamon:  The anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antimicrobial properties present in cinnamon helps in dealing with symptoms of malaria. Drink it once or twice a day to help you improve faster.
  • Holy Basil:  Tulsi or holy basil contains compounds that can reduce the symptoms and severity of malaria. Take herbal tea made with fresh holy basil leaves to get maximum benefits.
