Home Remedies For Chikungunya "JOINT PAIN"

Chikungunya is basically a viral infection which is transmitted by mosquitoes. There is no vaccination or treatment available yet to cure this disease.

The treatment of chikungunya focuses on improving or alleviating the symptoms. Some of the most common symptoms of chikungunya include joint pain, high fever, nausea, headache, constipation, back pain, abdominal pain, skin rashes and sore throat.

If you have been diagnosed for chikungunya then you may follow these home remedies for relieving the "JOINT PAIN" along with your chikungunya treatment :

Cold Compression
Grind some ice, take a small towel, put the ice on the towel and wrap it nicely. Compress and hold it on your joints for some time. Cold compression is one of the most effective remedies for chikungunya joint pain, as it helps to reduce your pain and inflammation.

Stew Peppers
One of the best home remedies to cure chikungunya joint pain is stew peppers. They abound with capsaicin and also help in curing chikungunya. Capsaicin is again loaded with anti-inflammatory properties, and hence they help to reduce your swelling due to chikungunya. Capsaicin stimulates the release of a compound believed to be involved in communicating pain between the nerves in the spinal cord and other parts of the body.

Leafy Greens
Leafy greens are loaded with iron and Vitamin E, which are vital for joint pain and inflammation. Vitamin E has antioxidant properties and it also aids in getting rid of the cytokines from your system. Thus, leafy greens prove to be one of the best remedies for chikungunya joint pain. Make sure to include more leafy greens in your daily diet.

Vitamin C-rich Fruits
Vitamin C is rich in antioxidant properties and hence it acts as an ideal nourishment between infections and anaphylaxis. Vitamin C also helps to flush out the toxins from your body. Hence, make sure you include more of vitamin C-rich fruits in your diet to help heal pain and inflammation.

Aerobic Exercises
One of the most beneficial remedies for chikungunya joint pain is to do aerobic exercises. Aerobic exercises include some stretching exercises and a few slow movements that have a very low impact yet they help you to alleviate your pain. This method of workout doesn't involve any heavy weights or harsh movements.

Turmeric works wonders for chikungunya and is one of the most easily available home remedies to cure chikungunya joint pain. Turmeric abounds with curcumin which is a powerful antioxidant and also has the anti-inflammatory properties which helps to ease the chikungunya symptoms.

Another miraculous home remedy to combat chikungunya is garlic, which is readily available in almost every kitchen. Its anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory attributes help to improve your immune system and soothes your pain. Munch some cloves of garlic in early morning daily and see the difference.

Ginger is also effective in curing the swelling due to chikungunya. Ginger contains analgesics which act like the anti-inflammatory medicines. However, the analgesics found in ginger have almost no or lesser side effects as compared to the anti-inflammatory pills. Ginger is one of the most effective remedies for chikungunya joint pain and inflammation.

Massage is one of the most helpful remedies for chikungunya joint pain. Just massage your middle fingers to ease the joint pain in your legs and similarly in order to alleviate the joint pain in your arms you should massage your outer 2 fingers. more
