The dangerous mosquito-borne virus known as Chikungunya continues to wreak havoc in the lives of many in the Caribbean.
There are numerous reports of persons dying as a result of complications after contracting the nasty virus both in Jamaica and other countries in the region.
The symptoms of the disease are quite debilitating.
Its name literally translates to “that which bends up“, and is quite befitting considering the terrible arthritic pain, fatigue and high fever that follows infection.
While it is NOT an officially endorsed method to alleviate the symptoms of Chikungunya, many persons are offering praises for the efficacy of Papaya leaves at doing just that.
More and more persons in Jamaica are now using Papaya leaves as their main weapon to reduce Chikungunya symptoms.
