Methods Of Naturopathy

--  TYPHOID FEVER --
Causes and Symptoms: Typhoid fever is a condition in which there is an insidious fever, a typical course of temperature, marked abdominal symptoms consisting of ulceration of the bowels, an eruption on the skin, an uncertain duration and a liability to frequent relapses.

Early symptoms are headache, lassitude, a general discomfort, insomnia and feverishness, particularly at night. In some cases there may be nose-bleed in the early stages. The fever rises in the evening and has a tendency to fall in the morning: the temperature of typhoid is typical. Each succeeding day the highest and the lowest point tends to increase till the disease has run its course. Skin eruptions tend to appear in the sceond week and if care is not taken inflammation of the bones and ulceration of the bowels may occur.

Typhoid fever, according to naturopathy, can hit only that body in which there is accumulation of toxic waste and other putrifying materials in the intestines. If a system is healthy and free from toxicity there is no likelihood of typhoid developing, even if the person is exposed to the severest form of infection.

Treatment: The Patient must be fasted till the temperature has come down to normal. During this period only water and orange juice in medium quantities should be allowed to him. After the fever is gone and the tongue has regained its healthy hue, an all-fruit diet should be given followed by boiled vegetables and un-refined foods like wholemeal bread and unpolished rice.

RHEUMATIC FEVER

Symptoms: Rheumatic fever - rheumatism accompanied by rise in temperature and pain in the joints - is a serious disorder of childhood which has a tendency to involve the heart.

An attack of acute rhematism begins with chilliness or rigors, followed by feverishness and a feeling of stiffness or pain in one or more joints, generally those of the large size, such as the knee, ankle, wrist or the shoulder. The temperature goes upto 103 degree F, the pulse is rapid, the tongue is coated and there is loss of appetite and constipation. The attack may pass off in a few days, but it returns with increased vigour and if it becomes chronic, the inflammation of the membrane, the outer covering or the muscle of the heart, may develop leading to serious consequences. Sometimes, the temperature rises beyond 106 degree F endangering the life of the patient.

Rheumatic fever is usually confined to children and adolescents; among adults it usually assumes a chronic form. If a child complains of pain in his joints, it should not be ignored because more often than not, the pain is an indicatin of rheumatic fever.

The disease is in fact caused by the over-eating of acid forming foods; the daily ingestion of meat and demineralised starchs, refined sugar, fats and other unnatural edibles flood the human system with impurities which come out in the form of rheumatic fever.

Treatment: The treatment for rheumatic fever is fasting and keeping the patient on orange juice and water with a daily enema. In addition, cold packs should be applied to the swollen and aching joints. Whole body packs may also be necessitated if the fever rises beyond 106 degree F as it is likely to.
