TUBERCULOSIS - HOME REMEDIES

TUBERCULOSIS - HOME REMEDIES

This is a contagious and an infectious disease caused by the tubercle bacillus, which enters the body through the nose, mouth and windpipe and then settles down usually  in the lungs (called as the primary tuberculosis) or may settle in the tonsils, bones, intestines, glands, lymphatic system, joints and urinary tract. It multiplies very fast and produces small raised spots called as tubercles. The usual symptoms of pulmonary tuberculosis are fatigue, lethargy, decreased appetite, weight loss, low grade fever (especially in the evening), persistent coughing, difficulty in breathing, indigestion and occasionally in later stages blood in the sputum.  


HOME REMEDIES 

1. Taking a glass full of fresh orange and lemon juice daily also helps since it contains a lot of vitamins useful for quicker healing. 

2. Onion soup should be taken daily. Milk and rice diet is given to the patient. 

3. Garlic  is a wonderful herb for tuberculosis since it contains many vitamins, calcium, iron, phosphorus, iodine and even a few trace minerals. Thus two to three cloves of garlic  or  one to two teaspoonfuls of garlic juice are given to the patient daily. 

4. Boil a few dates in some milk and then after cooling it for some time take this as a nutritive tonic especially for children. 

5. Holy basil (tulsi) leaf juice is also very useful, since it has a few antibiotic properties and is a useful expectorant. 

6. The juice of bananas or banana milkshake is useful for patients with frequent cough, abundant expectoration and high fever.  

7. A teaspoonful of fresh mint juice mixed with two teaspoonfuls of pure malt vinegar and an equal quantity of honey should be stirred in 120 ml of carrot juice and given to the patient thrice daily. 

8. Pineapple juice is found useful to dissolve the mucus and aid faster recovery for tuberculosis patients. 

9. A soup prepared from drumstick leaves (saijan ki phalli) is found useful in this disease. 

10. A mixture of Indian gooseberry (amla) and sesame seeds taken with honey is very effective.
