- The papaya leaf contains beta-carotene, calcium, carpaine, fats, flavonols, niacin, papain, tannins, and vitamin C (in higher concentration in the leaf than in the fruit). The leaf, unlike the fruit, is not a source of the protein-dissolving enzyme papain, but the latex (sap) in the leaf stem is. Papain remains in leaf preparations that have been dried over low heat, but it may be destroyed in products that are dried at high heat.
Take some papaya leaves, clean and grind it. Then apply on your swelling part.
Hyperthermia is the general name given to a variety of heat-related illnesses. Warm weather and outdoor activity go hand in hand. However, it is important for older people to take action to avoid the severe health problems often caused by hot weather.
Hyperthermia occurs when body metabolic heat production or environmental heat load exceeds normal heat loss capacity or when there is impaired heat loss.
- Drinking alcohol/smoking
- Lifestyle factor
- Heat stress
- Heat fatigue
- Heat syncope
- Heat cramps
- Heat exhaustion
- Heat stroke
Hyperthermia is generally diagnosed in the presence of an unexpectedly high body temperature and a history that suggests hyperthermia instead of a fever. Some prevention methods for hyperthermia
- Drink 2 to 3 quarts of water daily.
- Avoid exertion or exercise, especially during the hottest part of the day.
- If traveling, allow 2 to 3 weeks in an unusually hot climate before attempting any type of exertion.
- When outside, wear a hat and loose clothing; when indoors, remove as much clothing as needed to be comfortable.
- Take a tepid bath or shower.
- Use cold wet towels or dampen clothing with tepid water when the heat is extreme.
- Avoid hot, heavy meals.
- Avoid alcohol.
- Determine if the person is taking any medications that increase hyperthermia risk; if so; consult with the patient’s physician.
- Paruppu keerai (portulaca oleracea) contains many biologically active compounds and is a source of many nutrients. It has high contents of Omega-3 fatty acids and protein (compared to other vegetables). The quantity of these compounds in Portulaca oleracea varies with the growing conditions (e.g., planting date, soil quality, fertilization) and the age of the plant. Some of the biologically active (and, in some case, potentially toxic compounds) include: Free oxalic acids, Alkaloids, Omega-3 fatty acids, Coumarins, Flavonoids, Cardiac glycosides, and Anthraquinone glycosides.
Take some paruppu keerai. Grind and filter their juice. Then drink 1 spoon of this juice in morning.
Constipation is an acute or chronic condition in which bowel movements occur less often than usual or consist of hard, dry stools that are painful or difficult to pass.

- Easily digestible liquid diet is good.
- Get a doctor’s consultation. It is a must to know the exact diagnosis on the type of the fever.
