Tuberculosis is a common infectious disease caused by various strains of mycobacterium, usually Mycobacterium tuberculosis in humans.
Tuberculosis typically attacks the lungs, but can also affect other parts of the body.
Most commonly, because it is wind-borne, it is spread by coughing, spitting, sneezing or kissing.
Symptoms of tuberculosis include coughing, fever, weight loss and night sweats.
Treatment for this disease uses antibiotics to kill the bacteria. Effective treatment is tricky, due to the unusual structure of the mycobacterial cell wall, which makes many antibiotics unsuccessful and deters the entry of drugs.
When left untreated, tuberculosis may lead to many other health problems and, in the most severe cases, may cause death.
So, as soon as a person notices the symptoms, one has to consult a physician who can run the necessary tests in order to spot the presence of this condition.
Homeopathy has been proven to be of great assistance for many conditions, and is also an immense help when dealing with this disease. However, one must bear in mind that a trip to the doctor’s is necessary when experiencing the symptoms for tuberculosis.
