Dengue fever and a local cure in the Philippines (tawa tawa, Gatas gatas or as i know it milk milk plant!) how to make a herbal tea.

Tawa-Tawa, milk milk plant Seems that dengue is back as reports from different areas seem to be coming in must be to do with the recent rainfall giving some breeding grounds. But anyway just wanted to share with you about the milk milk plant which cured me when i had dengue previously. It generally seems to grow like a weed and i have borrowed a photo from another blog as i don’t have any recent pictures (should have taken some).

Take 5 to 6 full whole Milk Milk plants.

Cut off the roots, throw it away, it is not included in the tea.

Wash and clean

Fill your boiling pot with clean water.

Boil the Milk Milk for 1 (one) minute in a slow boil.

Pour the Milk Milk water and let cool.

Let the dengue fever victim drink only the Milk Milk water for 24 hours.

Sip 1 to 1.5 glasses of Milk Milk water every 1 hour
