    Use of Giloy in treatment of Chikangunya

    Every third person now a days is suffering from Dengue or Chikungunya. There is no vaccine to prevent or medicine to treat chikungunya virus. Here are some Deshi tips.


    • Most people infected with chikungunya virus will develop some symptoms.
    • Symptoms usually begin 3–7 days after being bitten by an infected mosquito.
    • The most common symptoms are fever and joint pain.
    • Other symptoms may include headache, muscle pain, joint swelling, or rash.
    • Chikungunya disease does not often result in death, but the symptoms can be severe and disabling.
    • Most patients feel better within a week. In some people, the joint pain may persist for months.
    • People at risk for more severe disease include newborns infected around the time of birth, older adults (≥65 years), and people with medical conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or heart disease.
    • Once a person has been infected, he or she is likely to be protected from future infections.


    • The symptoms of chikungunya are similar to those of dengue and Zika, diseases spread by the same mosquitoes that transmit chikungunya.
    • See your healthcare provider if you develop the symptoms described above and have visited an area where chikungunya is found.
    • If you have recently traveled, tell your healthcare provider when and where you traveled.
    • Your healthcare provider may order blood tests to look for chikungunya or other similar viruses like dengue and Zika.


    • There is no vaccine to prevent or medicine to treat chikungunya virus.
    • Treat the symptoms:
      • Get plenty of rest.
      • Drink fluids to prevent dehydration.
      • Take medicine such as acetaminophen (TylenolĀ®) or paracetamol to reduce fever and pain.
      • Do not take aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS until dengue can be ruled out to reduce the risk of bleeding).
      • If you are taking medicine for another medical condition, talk to your healthcare provider before taking additional medication.

    • If you have chikungunya, prevent mosquito bites for the first week of your illness.
    • During the first week of infection, chikungunya virus can be found in the blood and passed from an infected person to a mosquito through mosquito bites.
    • An infected mosquito can then spread the virus to other people.

    Giloy (गिलोय) or Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia) is an herbaceous vine of the family Menispermaceae indigenous to the tropical areas of India.

    It has been found very useful in home treatment of Chikungunya.

    गिलोय का औषधीय उपयोग

    डेंगू और चिकनगुनिया के ईलाज में गिलोय बहुत उपयोगी माना गया है। गिलोय की लता को अगर नीम पर चढ़ा दिया जावे तो इसका औषधीय गुण बढ़ जाता है। इसको नीम-गिलोय बोलते हैं। अगर घर में नीम नहीं हो तो गमले में भी लगाकर रस्सी के सहारे चढ़ाया जा सकता है। इसके लगाने की विधि बहुत सरल है। गिलोय की लता की कटिंग काटकर जमीन में मार्च के महीने में रोप दें । कुछ समय बाद यह बढने लगती है। एक वर्ष बाद मई के महीने में गिलोय लता की डालियाँ काटकर छाल सहित सुखाकर रखी जाती हैं जो विभिन्न बीमारियों के लिए काढ़े के रूप में प्रयोग की जाती है। हरी गिलोय की औषधीय गुणवत्ता अधिक मानी जाती है।
    गिलोय के तनों को तुलसी के पत्ते के साथ उबालकर डेंगू पीड़ित व्यक्ति को देना चाहिए । यह मेटाबॉलिक रेट बढ़ाने, इम्युनिटी और प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली को मजबूत रखने और बॉडी को इंफेक्शन से बचाने में मदद करती है।
    चिकुनगुनिया बुखार के लिए गिलोय, पपीता पत्ते, एलोवेरा/मुसब्बर वेरा का रस और बकरी का दूध देना लाभप्रद होता है।
    टाइफाइड, मलेरिया, डेंगू, उल्टी , बेहोशी, कफ, पीलिया, तिल्ली बढना, सिफ़लिस, अलर्जी, त्वचा विकार, झाइयाँ, झुर्रियां, कुष्ठ आदि में गिलोय का सेवन बहुत उपयोगी पाया गया है।

    A wonder plant - Giloy

    My house in Haryana (close to Delhi border) has an open area on the front with a cemented boundary and iron fencing on the top. This summer, I had planted a Giloy stick near the wall. Now, Giloy plant has covered the entire fence area, resulting in a nice look by enhancement of green area. The giloy has also mixed with other plants.

    In the last couple of days, some neighbours who suffered from Chikangunya/ Dengue fever, plucked some green Giloy leaves and boiled them with water, in a pot. They drank the extract (काढ़ा) thus obtained (like sipping hot tea) and found great relief from fever.

    If you cut a Giloy branch today, after a few days it will re-generate a new branch from the very point where it was cut. It means that this phenomenal plant has certain healing qualities. Its Sanskrit name छिन्नोद्भवा (छिन्न + उद्भवा) means something which is re-born (उद्भवा) from its own broken (छिन्न) limb.
