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:

• Fever, the pattern varies with each person
• Sweats, followed by reversal to normal temperature
• Chills
• Body aches
• Fatigue
• Abdominal pain
• Headache
• Nausea accompanied with vomiting at times
• Diarrhea

Malaria can be life threatening in extreme cases. It can cause complications like failure of liver or kidney, Anemia due to destruction of RBC, Cerebral Malaria if the cells have reached the brain, breathing problems if the lungs have been attacked or even low blood sugar.

Of course, Malaria is a disease which has to be treated with medications depending on the person infected. However a few dietary measures will help you sail through this disease with ease. Since the person’s immune system is attacked by the parasite, the main focus should be boost immunity and enhance the ability to fight disease while not putting any extra load on kidney, liver and digestive tract.

Keep the following dietary pointers in mind:
• Hydrate yourself well and always drink boiled water.
• Drink plenty of juices like orange juice and grapefruit juice in the initial stages. This should be followed by other fresh fruits like strawberry, sweet lime, kiwi, grapes, papaya, melon, berries, pineapple etc. They help you rejuvenate too.
• Opt for a variety of soups too. They are quite pleasing to the system. Try recipes like Broccoli Broth and Oats and Roasted Capsicum Soup.
• Once you are recovering follow a balanced diet of whole grains, fruits, vegetables and healthy nuts like walnuts and almonds in moderation.
• Amongst the vegetables prefer Antioxidant rich veggies like Broccoli, Capsicum, Cabbage, Carrots etc. They work towards building a strong immune system. Try to add steam veggies with not too much spice and oil to your daily diet. You can also add the veggies to your bowl of khichdi.
• During fever concentrate on simple, non-spicy foods which gives enough carbohydrate and protein like a khichdi like Moong Dal Khichdi or porridge like Jowar Ragi and Date Porridge.
• Do not miss out on adding greens to your diet as anemia may persist. Try recipes like Methi Paratha and Oats Spinach Pancake
• Focus on protein as it’s required in the synthesis of immune bodies. Prefer curds, buttermilk or Salted Lassi . Consume milk in moderation if it suits you.
• Add omega-3 to your diet by way of flax seeds, walnuts, chia seeds as this helps to reduce inflammation in the body. One of the most easiest way to add omega- 3 along with protein to you diet is by way of Flax Seed Raita.
