Meditation and Yoga – Studies show that those who participate in learning meditation and yoga have higher platelet counts. This makes lots of sense because stress lowers our immune system and meditation activates, balances, and regulates our immune system making everything work correctly.
Take a TM Meditation course or Vipassana 10 Day Meditation Retreat which is totally FREE. Or take a yoga course which includes meditation as part of the class.
These are just a few herbs that will increase platelets, help with the symptoms, and also help get rid of the virus. But not every herb works for everyone, so try them and see which one works for you.
Remember not all of these herbs should be used at one time, try one and see how it works for you— if that herb does not work try another. Try to use the least amount of herbs needed to heal your dengue fever. Remember all herbs and supplements and even medications put a burden on our liver so use them sparingly.
