What food to eat and avoid for treating Malaria, Indian Diet for Malaria

What food to eat and avoid for treating Malaria, Indian Diet for Malaria. Malaria is a disease caused by the transmission of Plasmodium parasite transferred by female Anopheles mosquito. When an infected mosquito bites a healthy person, it transfers the parasite into his/her body. This parasite travels to the liver and multiplies. After a few days they are then released into the blood stream where they start attacking the red blood cells (RBC). Other causes of malaria are from pregnant women to unborn child, through blood transfusions and by using sharing needles for blood tests or injections.
