JR Lopez Gonzales 11:12 PM 2

With most of us Filipinos still uninformed about the disease that yearly infects 51 million people worldwide, there is a dire need for everybody to be aware about the deadly dengue and how to cure it. According to the Department of Health, however, tawa-tawa (Euphorbia hirta) is not proven to be dengue cure.

Here's how to make Tawa tawa tea for dengue treatment.

Euphorbia hirta, is a plant of the genus Euphorbia, known in the Philippines as "tawa-tawa" or "gatas-gatas".
1. Take 5 to 6 pieces of Tawa-tawa plant.

2. Cut off and exclude the roots.

3. Wash the plant with running water.

4. Clean it and make sure there are no foreign objects or dirt.

5. Fill a boiling pot with clean water.

6. Boil the Tawa-tawa for 1 (one) minute in a medium fire.

7. Wait for it to cool down.

8. Place the strainer on top of the mouth of the pitcher and slowly pour the tea into the pitcher.

9. Drink nothing but the Tawa-tawa tea for the next 12 to 24 hours.

10. Sip 1 to 1.5 glasses of Tawa-tawa water every hour for best results.

Hopefully, the internal hemorrhaging will stop and the dengue fever will be cured after 12 hours to 24 hours of ingesting the traditional tea.

Please share your experience on this recipe's effectivity on your dengue cases on the Comment Section below.

  1. That could be a goodnews. However, people may need to verify whether this could be true or not. Can you please add the link here of you said DOH recommending the use of tawa-tawa?

    As far as i know, no government agencies have not yet make any recommendations because studies for tawa-tawa is not yet done.

  2. Hello, Mon.
    Just to clarify. DOH is still in the process of testing tawa-tawa but "sees hope in 'tawa-tawa' as dengue cure". And just to verify, this blog does not mention that DOH "recommends" it. Latest testings suggest that it may have “some effect” in treating dengue patients.

    Here's the link:

    Have a great day ahead, and thank you for visiting. :)
