Home Remedies for Chikungunya

http://alternativemedicinebushdoctor.blogspot.com/

As Jamaica experiences the epidemic "Chikungunya" (aka Chik-V, Chickengunman), many Jamaicans are looking to natural remedies to remove "the toxins" that the virus has deposited in the body. Here are a few home remedies that are being used.


Papaya (paw paw) Leaves/ tree

Papaya Leaf
Remove the main vein of the papaya leaf and place in a bowl with two teaspoons of water. crush the vein in the water until this turns to paste (liquid) form. take one teaspoon twice daily.

Bizzy
The dried bizzy nut is grated and boiled and consumed as a tea.

These are just a few of the home remedies that Jamaicans have been using but they are never to replace doctor's advice or medication. This also is not intended to give advice for cure of ChiK V.

Wax and Cannon: An Authentic Jamaican Treatment

http://alternativemedicinebushdoctor.blogspot.com/

This home remedy had me laughing when I learnt about it.

I depend a lot on my mom to pass on these remedies, whenever she remembers them. As she and I went through our bout of the Chikungunya virus, we were suffering gravely from wax and cannon in our groins. I heard her laugh out loudly and said "nuh wonda fuss time people used to tek stone outta de grung' an put pan dem wax and cannon..."

This was so new to me. She referred to our fore parents as (fuss time people which means first time people.) and what this remedy simply requires is digging a small stone from the earth and pressing the area that was faced downwards, hard on the area of the wax and cannon. When you remove the stone, it is planted back in its exact position from which and where it was dug. This was believed to bring down the swelling.

Does this really work? It still remains a mystery to me.
