Naturopathy – Amoebic and Bacillary Dysentery

Bacillary Dysentery

A bacterial infection in the large intestine, bacillary dysentery is spread by unhygienic sanitary conditions. Bacillary dysentery is sudden in onset, with diarrhea, lower abdominal cramps and a feeling of need to pass stool but unable to do so. There may be blood or mucus in stool, loss of appetite and tiredness. If unchecked, the patient progressively becomes weaker and dehydrated. The causes of bacillary dysentery are mainly wrong eating habits, infection, constipation, fear, stress and anxiety. To natural treat bacillary dysentery, give buttermilk enema, may be 2-3 times during the first day and no food should be taken except a little orange juice or some other fruit juice (non-irritant/sour), sweet buttermilk/curds for at least two days and no starch is to be used for at least a week.

Amoebic Dysentery

AMOEBIC DYSENTERY is caused by the parasite amoeba and hence the name Amoebiasis. Transmission of infection occurs by consuming contaminated food and water (hotels/restaurants are a common source). Person-to-person contact also results in infection; hence, all members in the house should take adequate care.
In mild to moderate cases, semi-solid stools with a bad odor, mucus (no blood), abdominal cramps, flatulence and fatigue are present. This may occur periodically. In severe cases there is an increased frequency of stool with mucus and streaks of blood. Such cases may be fatal.

In chronic cases of Amoebiasis, the parasite may be transported to the liver through the blood stream. This can lead to amoebic liver abscess.

The patient should take raw diet comprising fruits, vegetables, sprouts, juice and soups, besides buttermilk. The system should be thoroughly cleansed along with prolonged fasting depending on the severity of the symptoms as explained in the chart. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING THAT DRUGS CAN DO. Amoeba (parasite) is to be eliminated through continuous torturing and draining out by means of treatments like cold hip bath, mud pack, abdomen pack, enema followed by vigorous exercises to be continued life long after the cure is achieved.
