Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Cassava leaves contain a variety of nutrients that are good for health. One of the many nutrients contained in singkok leaves is protein. This protein is useful for helping repair body tissues, as well as producing hormones and enzymes that play an important role in the smooth running of metabolism. Singkok leaves also contain rich in fiber which can help you digestion and prevent weight gain.
However, consumption of cassava leaves should not be done excessively. Because, in cassava leaves, it is known that they contain a lot of cyanide which can be harmful to health, including because it can trigger dizziness and headache in sensitive people.
Apart from consuming cassava leaves, dizziness and body aches that your mother may experience may also arise due to other causes, such as viral or bacterial infections, hormonal fluctuations (for example when explaining menstruation, approaching menopause, or during early pregnancy), dyspepsia (increased acidity stomach), lack of sleep, fatigue, experiencing psychological stress, and so on.
You can take the following steps so that your mother's complaints subside:
Don't over-consume cassava leaves, just consume it appropriately
Let him rest more, sleep on comfortable mats
Compress the parts of the body that are painful with warm water
Give your mother paracetamol medicine so that the aches in her body subside
Remind him to eat, sleep and wake up regularly
Help him to exercise regularly
Do not give your mother the drug carelessly, unless it is prescribed directly by a doctor
However, if this complaint does not improve within 1 to 3 days, do not hesitate to have your mother checked directly to a doctor or an internal medicine specialist so that it is given the best treatment.
I hope this helps.
