डेंगू बुखार फैल रहा है। अपने घुटनों से पैर के पंजे तक नारियल का तेल (coconut oil) लगायें। यह एक एंटीबायोटिक परत की तरह सुबह से शाम तक काम करता है। डेंगू का मच्छर घुटनों तक की ऊँचाई से ज्यादा नही उड़ सकता है।

किसी को dengu हुआ हो तो हरी ईलायची के दानो को मुँख में दोनो तरफ रखे, ख्याल रहे , चबाये नही. खाली मुँख में रखने से ही खून के कण नार्मल और प्लेटलेट्स तुरंत ही बढ़ जाते हैं ।
