1. What is Chikungunya Virus?

  • Disease transmitted through mosquito bites.
  • Mosquitoes become infected when they bite people who are already infected with the virus.
  • Chikungunya virus is most often spread to people by Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes.
  • These are the same mosquitoes that transmit dengue virus. They bite mostly during the daytime.
  • Aedes aegypti is a daytime mosquito.
  • The Aedes aegypti  breeds preferably in water storage containers, discarded plastic vials, and automobile tyres.
  • Eggs resist dry conditions and manage to survive for many months or years in adverse environments

2. Symptoms

  • Usually begin 3 – 7 days after being bitten by the infected mosquito
  • Sudden onset of fever  (typically more than 102°F)
  • Joint pain
  • Other symptoms may include headache, muscle pain, joint swelling, or rash.
  • Chikungunya disease does not often result in death, but the symptoms can be severe and disabling.
  • Most patients feel better within 7 t0 10 days.
  • Joint pain may persist for months in some people.

3. Who is at the greatest risk for severe disease?

  • Newborns infected around the time of birth
  • Persons over 65 years
  • People with medical conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or heart disease.
  • Once a person has been infected, he or she is likely to be protected from future infections.

4. Diagnosis

  • The symptoms of chikungunya are similar to those of dengue, another disease spread by mosquitoes.
  • The disease is confirmed by a blood test.

5. Treatment

  • There is no medicine to treat chikungunya virus infection or disease.
  • Rest
  • Fluids to prevent dehydration
  • Paracetamol to relieve pain and fever

6. Prevention

a. If travelling to infected areas:

  • Using insect repellants containing DEET, Picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or IR3535 on exposed skin
  • Wearing long-sleeved shirts and long pants
  • Using air conditioning or having windows/doors securely closed or screened when indoors
  • Sleeping under mosquito nets

b. Prevent growth of the mosquito by  eliminating or destroying mosquito breeding sites:

  • DO NOT store water in outdoor containers such as flower pots, bottles or containers.
  • Cover household water tanks or reservoirs so that mosquitoes do not get in.
  • Dispose garbage in closed plastic bags and store in closed containers.
  • Uncover/unblock drains to release stagnant water.
  • Install mesh/mosquito nets in windows and doors to help reduce contact between mosquitoes and people.

 

7. Archangel Gabriel on the Chikungunya Virus

Archangel Gabriel told me that we must overpower the Aedes Agypti. Humans were created to subdue the earth, not to be dominated by the created beings. Therefore, we subdue this mosquito in the name of Jesus and command the virus to die.

The Chikungunya Virus will not destroy us. We will destroy it!

 

8. Coconut oil and the Chikungunya Virus

The platelets, which are responsible for blood clotting,  can be lowered during the disease.  Dr. Bruce Fife, Coconut Oil expert, has documented accounts of individuals who have increased their low platelet counts after consistently using coconut oil (Coconut Research Center 2o14).

In this condition, platelets are destroyed for unknown reasons. Taking coconut oil and/or any part of the coconut oil may help to increase the platelet count in individuals affected with Chikungunya and/or Dengue Fever.

I myself have recommended this therapy to individuals with Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura and they had been able to reduce the episodes of illness as well as decrease the dosage of anti – inflammatory drugs over time.

9. Moringa and the Chikungunya Virus

  • Research shows that the  seeds of the Moringa contains a water soluble lecitin called WSMoL.
  • WSMoL is safe for use in water treatment.
  • WSMoL kills Aedes aegypti fourth-stage larvae and may  become a potential candidate in Aedes aegypti control.

Method for extracting WSMoL from Moringa seeds

I’m trying to find this extract online. It is used worldwide.
