During the month of September , 2015, news reports suggest that number of Dengue patients is on the increase abnormally in northern India, particularly Delhi, Punjab and Haryana. While some patients have died recently, news reports indicate that fear among people of the Dengue spreading more are increasing. In this regard, this Panchkula based Vedic astrology writer would like to let readers know that a precise hint was given in the prediction in article – “ Months of substantial concern for India in next year 2015.”- published in online magazine at thesop.org as early as last year on 23rd October 2014. The following highlights of the prediction which could be construed to mean Dengue fever as well are notable from the article : [1]. The affected places predicted were northern or Eastern India specifying Delhi, Punjab and Haryana.(2). The planetary impacts were predicted likely to operate during second half of 2015. (3). It was predicted that massive floods, landslides, earthquake or epidemics could perhaps visit. Again said : Mystery epidemics or health hazards may be upsetting. (4). Last but not least, it was added : “ In the end, astrology suggests certain trends which can be either mitigated or softened by timely appropriate human effort.”

Hi all, if u have a fever in this season get your blood test done for dengue, ASAP.If fever accompanied with pain between eyes, head ache, vomiting etc are symptoms of the disease. Far as i have known there is no medicine except the home concoctions that can save you the agony of Drip/ hospitals transfusions etc: 1] Juice extracted from 2 papaya leaves twice a day. 2) Goats milk [fresh and not boiled/ just filtered) approx 250 ml twice a day. 3) To take care of the fever you can have the Crocin/ Tylenol that the doc prescribes. These concoctions are life savers, when medicine seems to have no answer.

Dengue is a very dangerous disease; however one can get cured through proper treatments. I had suffered from Dengue a couple of years back. It took me about two weeks to recover completely.

hi iv suffered from dengue 2 weeks ago. there no medicine given to me. only antacid for the stiomach taken every morning. My doctor advised me to drink more water. It may be no medical exsplanation but eating 10pcs each day of quail eggs help me improve my platelet. taua taua leaves also is a big factor for me to be able to recover.
