Dengue-carrying mosquitoes have caused a medical crisis in the Philippines. 

The country's health officials declared on Tuesday a national dengue epidemic that has so far claimed the lives of at least 622 people. 

There is no specific cure or treatment for dengue, but now an 18-year old Philippine company that specializes in researching and processing local herbal ingredients is offering what it claims is an herbal extract capsule that can counteract dengue symptoms.
