What is Zika Virus?

Zika is a highly infective virus of the flaviviridae strain, similar to yellow fever. The name is derived from Zika forest found in Uganda, where the virus was first isolated in 19471. During the 50s, the spread of the virus was limited to the equator belt in Africa and Asia, but recently in 2007, the virus spread across the ocean to the Americas, resulting in the outbreak of 2015-2016. That is the reason for the travel guidance issued by the CDC to certain affected countries, mainly Colombia, Dominican Republic and Ecuador2.

What is the cause of this infection?

The virus is thought to have developed first in Monkeys, which are then bitten by a strain of Mosquitoes known as Aedes aegypti3. These mosquitos are the primary cause for transmission to humans, as when the mosquito bites the human, the virus is transmitted to the skin cells where they mature, then they are transmitted to the lymph nodes.

Other routes of infection include sexual transmission, through contaminated blood , in addition to transmission from a pregnant mother to her child4. The virus causing Zika is of the flaviviridae strain, therefore it is related to yellow fever, Dengue fever and West Nile viruses5.

What are the signs and symptoms of Zika Virus infection?

Most cases present no symptoms, but in patients with low immunity, the infection can cause symptoms resembling Dengue fever, and the condition is known as Zika fever6. These are A skin rash, fever, joint and muscle pain, headache and eye redness. Infection of a pregnant female can cause problems to the baby, mainly brain problems such as microcephaly (or small head)7. Some infections are linked to Guillain- Barre syndrome8, which is an autoimmune disease and its main symptom is generalized muscle and joint pain, and specifically pain in the upper and lower limb.

Zika Virus treatment according to the western medicine tradition

Unfortunately until now, there is no effective treatment for Zika virus infection. Paracetamol can be used to control the symptoms if they present, but the condition is mostly mild and needs no treatment or hospitalization. Vaccinations are still under research, and no vaccine is yet approved. Prevention is the best course of action, through the use of insect repellant and decreasing visits to known areas of infection as possible, especially pregnant women or those planning to be pregnant in the near future.

Zika Virus treatment according to the natural medicine tradition

While most people do not experience any symptoms with Zika virus infection, immunocompromised people are highly at risk of encountering problems, especially pregnant females. Western medicine offers only pain relief and antipyretic therapy, instead of an actual treatment. Prevention also plays an important role in Zika Virus control, and we can help you with that.
