Herbal Treatment for Typhoid fever.
Typhoid fever is a life-threatening infection caused by the bacterium Salmonella Typhi.
It is usually spread through contaminated food or water.
Symptoms include prolonged fever, fatigue, headache, nausea, abdominal pain, and constipation or diarrhoea. Some patients may have a rash. Severe cases may lead to serious complications such as typhoid perforation or even death.
Typhoid fever can be treated with antibiotics although increasing resistance to different types of antibiotics is making treatment more complicated. Even after antibiotic treatment, a small number of people who recover from typhoid fever continue to harbor the bacteria. These people, known as chronic carriers, no longer have signs or symptoms of the disease themselves. However, they still shed the bacteria in their feces and are capable of infecting others.
The goodnews is typhoid vaccines are now available though still very expensive and not readily available. More so, the vaccines still require further clinical trials. You can read about typhoid vaccines here.
Even when the symptoms go away, people may still be carrying typhoid bacteria, meaning they can spread it to others through their faeces, urine, and other body secretions.
An estimated 11–20 million people get sick from typhoid and between 128 000 and 161 000 people die from it every year. Poor communities and vulnerable groups including children are at highest risk. Africa and other developing countries carry the largest typhoid fever burn.
