Malaria is a deadly, widespread mosquito-borne disease that threatens people across the globe. There are many natural remedies to treat and prevent malaria and they include grapefruit, fever nut, citrus fruits, holy basil, orange juice, cinnamon, warm water enema, and ginger, among others.
Malaria is transferred through the Anopheles mosquito’s saliva when it bites you after it has been infected by various types of parasitic microorganisms such as Plasmodium vivax, P. ovale, P. malariae, and P. falciparum. There is a very well established treatment for malaria, as it affects so many people in concentrated areas of the world, but an excessive use  of anti-malarial drugs has also become a problem in terms of drug resistance. For this reason and many others, people have identified and relied on various natural remedies for generations.
A common and popular treatment for malaria is the use of ginger; fortunately, ginger is easy to access and can be boiled down into a powerful decoction that will boost your immune system and help speed up the recovery process after an infection. Ginger’s active ingredient gingerol, and its unique hydrocarbons are known for their anti-inflammatory and antibacterial activities in the body, making it one of the most effective natural remedies.
One of the best ways to get rid of malaria is to tackle its symptoms, namely fever, headache, and diarrhea. Cinnamon is a comprehensive remedy, as it can help improve multiple symptoms at the same time. Cinnamon has a powerful organic component, cinnamaldehyde, which has anti-inflammatory properties and has been connected to a reduction in malaria’s violent and painful symptoms.
* Citrus Fruits
Although this is a rather vague suggestion, citrus fruits, in general, are often recommended for the treatment of malaria. Limes and lemons are easy to get a hold of in many malaria-prone regions, and the antioxidant compounds, vitamins, and minerals in them can help eliminate fever, prevent the spread of the infection, and speed up the healing process. Mixing a few drops of lime and an entirely squeezed lemon into a glass of water is a popular approach or you can just take a bite of those healthy fruits!
* Holy Basil
To reduce the symptoms and severity of malaria, people have turned to holy basil for many years; eugenol is its active ingredient, and is largely responsible for its therapeutic properties, helping to eliminate bacterial infections. Different parts of this plant are used for dozens of Ayurvedic remedies, making it extremely important in Asian countries that deal with many cases of malaria.
* Orange Juice
Vitamin C is known as an incredible immune system booster and this has certainly proven true in the treatment of malaria. Since it can be difficult to keep away from food while suffering from malaria, many people choose to go on a water and orange juice diet, to keep the body hydrated and promote a concentrated attack on the infection. The antioxidant and immune-system boosting effects of vitamin C are often enough to kick-start the recovery process.
