Dengue: Food to include in diet

My friend from Delhi called up frantically to say that there is a spread of Dengue there. And patients are asking what to eat so that they get recovered very soon.

So I thought why not give a list of food diet you can include which help combat the symptoms.

Here goes the list:

1. Orange – is a store house of Vitamin C and full of nutrients and vitamins. The High fiber content helps in combating indigestion.

2. Papaya – Crush a few papaya leaves and strain out the juice. It has been said it triggers faster production of Platelets in blood.

3. Avoid Oily Food – As it is difficult to digest it is better to be avoided.
