Punarnava Ayurveda Trust and Thirumalayampalayam panchayat are working to prevent the spread of infectious diseases, particularly dengue fever and malaria, in their communities.
For this,we regularly administer “Nilavembu Kashayam,” a natural preventive medicine for dengue, to children once a month. The Kashayam is made by boiling 3 grams of dried and powdered Nilavembu leaves with 1 litre of water, and 20-30 ml is taken as a single dose. The panchayat has successfully prevented many cases of dengue in the village through this program.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the villagers were also given immunity-boosting Shadangam Kashayam on a daily basis, and around 1000 homes in the village received Kabasura Kudineer powder.
