WHAT IS MALARIA?
Malaria is an infectious disease, transmitted by the bite of infected mosquitoes. It is characterized by colonization of red blood cells in our body by a parasite called plasmodium. Plasmodium is carried by female anopheles mosquito and it reaches into the blood when this mosquito bites a human. Once the parasite enters the body, it multiplies in the liver and then affects the red blood cells. If we talk about the incubation period then, Malaria generally lasts for around 8 to 20 days (max 2 months) after the bite of incubation. This period is characterized by febrile seizures every 2 -4 days.
CAUSES OF MALARIA:
Unhygienic surroundings or living condition
Consuming alcohol lower then body resistance makes person vulnerable to malaria
Wrong eatery habits.
SYMPTOMS OF MALARIA:
High fever, every day or alternative day or every fourth day

HOME-BASED REMEDIES TO CURE MALARIA:
There are no home cures for malaria other than quinine or artemisinin based prescriptions which should be prescribed by doctors. Quinine or artemisinin based drugs have bad side effects like loss of appetite, weakness, loss of immunity, intestinal problems, depression and liver problems. Therefore, following measures can be taken to alleviate the symptoms.
Cinnamon: is a valuable remedy for treating malaria. One teaspoon of powdered cinnamon should be boiled in a glass of water with a pinch of pepper powder and a teaspoon of honey. This should be taken daily.
