How to regain your health after recovering from all mosquito borne diseases

Recovering From Mosquito-borne Diseases

Mosquitoes are considered one of the most dangerous species on the planet because as they possess the lethal ability to spread a number deadly diseases. Nearly 700 million people are infected with a mosquito-borne illness every year, culminating in more than one million deaths. According to the United States Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), mosquitoes kill more than one million people a year just from the transmission of malaria. In recent years, the rate of infection spread has increased dramatically, and a growing number of scientists are concerned because global warming could lead to the explosive growth of the mosquito-borne diseases worldwide.

With the instances of mosquito-borne diseases such as dengue and malaria rising almost every day, it is crucial that we know how to recover quickly after falling sick. These viral infections affect millions of people every year. Some of these chronic mosquito-borne diseases are widespread in Pakistan as well and are transmitted through the bite of an infected mosquito, mostly Aedes. Some of the common symptoms of these mosquito-borne diseases include high fever, headache, body aches, weakness, joint pain, muscle pain, loss of appetite, cold and cough, nausea, vomiting, skin rashes and nose bleeding. Most patients recover within two to three weeks.

It is important to note here that the immunity system of a body is highly affected when contracted by these diseases. After the diagnosis and prescriptions, it’s still recommended to eat a diet that’ll help you recover faster. Hence, it is pertinent to eat the right foods which strengthen your immune system.

Let’s take a look at some foods that you should eat when you’re recovering from these mosquito-borne diseases:


1 Citrus fruits

Food items which are rich in Vitamin C are generally advised for consumption after suffering from chikungunya, dengue or malaria. They help in the immunity process and since the digestive system is also highly affected in this disease, food rich in vitamin C is easily digestible.

2 Coconuts

When a patient is recovering from the above-mentioned diseases, coconut is essential. Firstly, it helps a patient to detox their body. Secondly, it protects a body from getting dehydrated. And thirdly, coconuts prove to be helpful for the liver.

3 Soups

Plain watery vegetables or chicken soups provide you with vitamin A, bolstering your immune system. Avoid adding heavy cream in your soup as the digestive system has been weakened during the disease.

4 Green Leafy Vegetables

These are rich in vitamins which help in the process of combating the viruses from an infected body. Super easy to digest, the green vegetables are very healthy for the recovering patient, with a depleted immune system.

5 Fluids

Excessive sweating and exertion during these infections can lead to extreme dehydration. Ensure that you take a lot of fluids and stay well hydrated. Drink adequate water at frequent intervals to keep your body well hydrated as it reduces the symptoms of headaches, as well as muscle cramps. Water helps in flushing out these excess toxins from your body which can help you recover.
