A note about Conventional Medicine Tuberculosis Treatment
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
In conventional medicine, tuberculosis is said to be completely curable if the prescribed medication is taken regularly and on time as prescribed by the physician.
The most effective tuberculosis drug regimen used to treat tuberculosis is as listed below:
Note the prescription of multiple drug medications for tuberculosis treatment. The reason for this being, multiple disease-causing bacteria need to be killed.
It is said that this task of killing all bacteria can be accomplished by taking multiple drugs, or else there are chances that the bacteria might develop resistance to one drug and it could prove ineffective in eradicating the bacteria completely.
This is a problem with many chemical drugs when it comes to killing microorganisms they tend to be only effective against limited types of microorganisms, for a limited time, before the microorganisms mutate into drug-resistant and stronger strains. This is a limitation of drug tuberculosis treatments, especially in the long run.
Herbal antibiotics, such as garlic, however, work against a wide variety of microorganisms. That is why garlic is often described as a broad-spectrum herbal antibiotic.
Active tuberculosis is highly contagious and patients with active tuberculosis are generally isolated and are treated under strict conditions to prevent the disease from spreading to family, friends, healthcare staff, and other patients in the hospital or healthcare facility.
Bacteria causing tuberculosis are strong and it takes a while for these bacteria to die and this happens through a gradual process. The entire process or tuberculosis treatment might take a minimum of at least six months to effectively kill all the disease-causing bacteria.
Since the symptoms reduce considerably after the initial two or three weeks of treatment, one must never assume that the disease has been cured. Tuberculosis will continue to persist mainly because the disease-causing bacteria continue to live in the patients body. They die slowly and for all to die it will take at least six months.
Another important point to bear in mind while being treated for tuberculosis is - never ever discontinue, stop, or miss taking medication on time regularly as prescribed by the physician. This is because once the discontinuity of medication takes place, the power of the drug in the body becomes less and the bacteria will start becoming stronger.
These bacteria actually develop resistance to the drug and the drugs could then prove to be ineffective in treating the disease and killing the bacteria. This will result in the patient needing more powerful drugs which are stronger than the initial ones, and these new and powerful drugs could have serious side effects.
To avoid relapse of the disease with greater intensity, it is important to follow the multiple drug regiment prescribed the physician and prevent things going from bad to worse.
Once again, please be reminded that this article highlights, mainly, the viewpoints of conventional medicine, and not those of natural health and healing.
