Holistic treatment of malaria focuses on treating the illness with natural methods to constitute a faster, easier recovery. Supplements and natural treatment elements deliver healing properties that eradicate the parasite in the body and boost the immune system. As many parasites are now immune to common drug therapies, natural remedies are more effective and easier to use.
What is Malaria?
Caused by a parasite, malaria is a disease that is transmitted by the bite of infected mosquitoes. Characterized by recurring chills and fevers, malaria kills roughly 1 million people worldwide every year.
Contraction of malaria involves the transmission of a microscopic parasite, typically by mosquito bite. Typically, an uninfected mosquito bites an infected individual and then passes it to a new individual by successively biting him or her. The parasites move into the liver and then transfer to the bloodstream, infecting the red blood cells. Malaria can also be passed from a mother to her unborn child, through blood transfusion and by sharing infected needles.
Natural Treatments for Parasitic Disease
Common treatment of malaria involves medication; however, natural treatments are often less invasive and more operative. Curcumin, papaya seeds and methylene blue are three of the most effective natural options. These treatment options attack the parasite, removing it from the body, and then support renewed health of the body.
Curcumin, an important component of turmeric, is used in treating a number of health conditions. This agent is effective in killing the parasite as well as supporting the immune system.
Papaya seeds have been used for treating malaria for years. Due to its anthelmintic properties, papaya is effective at killing the parasite without harming the individual.
One of the most historic malaria treatments, methylene blue was used during the Vietnam War to cure malaria. The compound is a negative hydrogen carrier, so it works to attack the parasite. Methylene blue must be taken in conjunction with vitamin C sodium ascorbate, though; otherwise it turns the individual’s urine blue.
More common in tropical and subtropical countries, malaria remains a fairly common health condition. When treated with effective methods; however, the condition and symptoms can be eradicated fairly quickly.
Curcumin cures malaria in animals
NEW DELHI: Curcumin, which gives turmeric (haldi) its trademark bright yellow colour, has been found to be highly effective against malaria, with a 100% cure rate in the recently completed animal trials. A study, conducted by scientists from the Indian Institute of Science (IIS), Bangalore, found that curcumin when used in combination with the anti-malarial drug of choice - Artemisinins (ART) - is not only effective in killing the parasite, but is also able to prepare the immune system against recurrence of the disease caused by leftover parasites.
Hello, This is an article I came across and would like to share with everyone on Earth Clinic. I would like to start contributing any information I come across because Earth Clinic has helped my family and me out for awhile now!

... You might never heard of methylene blue, but it was used during the Vietnam war to cure malaria. The reason for it's disuse is that taken in very high dose, it causes the urine to be blue. However, there's a cure for blue urine, it's called vitamin C sodium ascorbate! So the reason for disuse was that the doctors simply didn't give the GI's vitamin C sodium ascorbate when they injected methylene blue, or perhaps taken internally. Even so, it can easily be proven that methylene blue will become colorless. Just add drops of methylene blue in vitamin C, it will instantly become colorless. Interestingly, methylene blue works better with vitamin C, as both are related to negative hydrogen, as evidenced by the fact that if you did use ORP meter, the resultant measurement is likely to be -200 millivolts or up to -300 millivolts, which is a negative charge. Methylene blue is a negative hydrogen carrier, while vitamin C sodium ascorbate, preferably is a producer of that and is a reducing agent.

[YEA] Hi all,
MMS helped a lot. I started with 1 drop per hour for 8 hrs a day every week. But the major side effect I encountered was that; my skin became as dry as I took the fourth dose.
That was the first, I thought may be was the cause if something else. I tried for the second time. This time I developed skin rash, which I paid 208 $ for treatment....but otherwise my chronic malaria gone...

I had a bout of malaria last night. Did'nt know it was malaria until all the symptoms appeared. (I suppressed it by drinking in the morning half a teaspoon of peroxide mixed with half a glass of water. ) I immediately google my position (not Vredenburg SA currently) and see that it is a malaria area. I took about 15 drops of MMS and activate it with pure Lemon juice. Waited the three minutes and drank it with half a glass of water. Had a good sweat last night and felt good this morning. My urine is still very dark - at this stage Im assisting my liver by drinking Kombucha tea. Last year I gave MMS to about 100 workers of mine over a 6 month period in Zambia for malaria, and everytime it worked within 6 to 12 hours. They later prefered my 'doepa' than the dr's malaria tablets with a week sickleave!

[YEA] malaria prevention:
Hi, thanks for an interesting web site - I have just contracted shingles and hope your acv and cayenne will help me.
I live in a malaria area and after years of taking chloroquin and paludrin to prevent malaria, I developed an allergy to chloroquin in 1993. from 1993 to 1997 I got malaria 2- 3 times a year, each time suffering more. In 1997 i read an article in a local weekly by a Mr David Simpson (i think) who said he had been taking pawpaw pips as an anti-malarial for 20 years and had not had malaria since, despite being in a bad malaria area of Zambia. I have taken half a dozen pawpaw pips a day since then and have not had malaria again. I think you call pawpaw papaya. I rinse the seeds and freeze them for daily use and also have a tub of sun dried seeds for if i go away on trips.
EC: How interesting, thank you!

Papaya seeds pulverized or chewed help expulsion of parasites as worms and other ascarides, and they are beneficial in case of dysentery caused by amebas. The Plasmodium, causal agent of malaria, transmitted by mosquitoes, is a parasite.
[YEA] Hi! I read the comment on remedies for Malaria, where Tom in Thailand mentions the weed/grass Ya Ka as a common local treatment for malaria. Can you please provide any more information on this plant, for instance what its botanical name might be or what it looks like? I have the idea to try growing it here, but maybe it already does. I know locally here in Togo people will take citronelle as a tea against getting malaria, and there is a cloudy green-yellow drink brewed by the local women that is called "malaria drink", and it contains a number of different ingredients including citronelle, ginger, and pineapple rinds. People will drink it in the morning, and it makes you sweat! I also know people here in West Africa will take a strong tea of neem leaves each day as a preventative (but it is *unbelievably* bitter so I found I couldn't keep drinking it.) Anyway, thanks for any info you might be able to provide.

I didn't find it in this exciting web site Sweet annie as the best natural treatment against Malaria. Sweet Annie is not Artemisia Absinthium, but it is Artemisia Annua. A lot of vendors call Artemisia Absinthium "Sweet Annie" which is not true.
EC: More from Wikipedia for those who are interested: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artemisia_annua
[YEA] I lived 7 years in West Africa as a teenager. My family and I took medication to prevent contracting Malaria but realized after a year that it was doing more harm to our body than good. After stopping, none of us got malaria until 3-4 years later, as far as we know. After that we would get it regularly, maybe 3-6 times a year. We would always cure it with some type of medication, but my point is that we have discovered since then, the BEST way to PREVENT malaria. Malaria seems to 'break out' when the body is weaker, or in other words when the immune system is low. Maybe I have already been beaten by the female mosquito (anophel in French, sorry don't know the name in EN) but as long as my Immune System is high I can fight malaria back, or it stays dormant in my body. How do i keep my I.S. strong? VIT C and Echinacea are the 2 strongest Immune System boosters (that i know of/have heard of). My husband and I recently went back to W Africa for a visit and I didn't take any medication for malaria, i just took about 2-3000 mg of VIT C /day and a good quantity of Echinacea as well. Didn't get malaria, though I know I got exposed more than once. Hope this helps someone!
