Dengue Awareness: How To Boost Your Immune System

Dengue-Fever-kills

Dengue is caused by any one of four related viruses transmitted by mosquitoes. These viruses are related to the viruses that cause West Nile infection and yellow fever. It is a febrile illness that affects infants, young children and adults with symptoms appearing 3-14 days after the infective bite.

The Aedes aegypti mosquito is the main vector that transmits the viruses that cause dengue. The viruses are passed on to humans through the bites of an infected female Aedes mosquito. If someone in your home gets dengue fever, be especially vigilant to protect yourself and other family members from mosquitoes. Mosquitoes that bite the infected family member could spread the infection to others in your home.

Dengue virus is a leading cause of illness and death in tropical and subtropical areas of the world. Although dengue rarely occurs in the continental United States, it is endemic in Puerto Rico and in many popular tourist destinations in Latin America, Southeast Asia and the Pacific islands. It has emerged as a worldwide problem only since the 1950s during dengue epidemics in the Philippines and Thailand.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there is no vaccines or any specific medicine to treat the infection with dengue virus. The most effective protective measures that was adviced is to avoid mosquito bites while people who have dengue fever should see a doctor, drink plenty of fluids and reduce the fever using paracetamol.

Symptoms of Dengue Fever
Symptoms, usually begin four to six days after infection and last for up to 10 days, this may include the following:

  • Sudden, high fever
  • Severe headaches
  • Pain behind the eyes
  • Severe joint and muscle pain
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Skin rash, which appears two to five days after the onset of fever
  • Mild bleeding (such a nose bleed, bleeding gums, or easy bruising)

Serious problems can develop if dengue infection is neglected. These include dengue hemorrhagic fever, a rare complication characterized by high fever, damage to lymph and blood vessels, bleeding from the nose and gums, enlargement of the liver, and failure of the circulatory system. The symptoms may progress to massive bleeding, shock, and death. This is called dengue shock syndrome (DSS).

People with weakened immune systems as well as those with a second or subsequent dengue infection are believed to be at greater risk for developing dengue hemorrhagic fever.

This is the reason why we recommend AIM Global‘s C24/7 Natura-Ceuticals food supplement for adults and Complete Phyto-energizer for children. Since, there is no cure or vaccines yet to avoid dengue fever, we need to boost our immune system to fight this type of infections. These food supplements are 100% Natural and Organic that can help boost a persons immune system. Formulated to be the highest-quality of anti-oxidants and phyto-nutrients to protect your health 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

If we have a strong immune system, it will do its job to fight with any infections in our body and indeed is always working round the clock to keep you healthy.

According to British Society For Immunology, “the immune system needs a lot of the body’s resources to function and any decline in essential nutrients is likely to have an effect. When nutrients are scarce, the body tends to favour the brain and certain other organs, and this can also affect the immune system.”

C24/7 and Complete Phyto-Energizer were formulated for everyday health and energy through a wider range of distinctly balanced nutrients that provide crucial health values from three important areas: daily essentials, botanical energizers and system defenders that include antioxidants. It delivers a high level of antioxidants from 131 organically-grown natural ingredients that works in “synergy” to produce the maximum result for your body.
