What food to eat and avoid for treating Malaria, Indian Diet for Malaria

What food to eat and avoid for treating Malaria, Indian Diet for Malaria. Malaria is a disease caused by the transmission of Plasmodium parasite transferred by female Anopheles mosquito. When an infected mosquito bites a healthy person, it transfers the parasite into his/her body. This parasite travels to the liver and multiplies. After a few days they are then released into the blood stream where they start attacking the red blood cells (RBC). Other causes of malaria are from pregnant women to unborn child, through blood transfusions and by using sharing needles for blood tests or injections.

Since the parasites takes time to multiply, in most cases the symptoms are not seen immediately. Usually this incubation period for cells to multiply is between a week to 4 weeks but it is quite possible that the parasite may remain dormant upto a year too . Once the incubation period is over and the cells have multiplied in the liver and attacked the hosts body the following symptoms are most commonly seen:
