    Default Cholera Easy preparation for cure

    Germ known as Vibrio Cholerae
    Cholera is caused by a germ known as vibrio cholerae. This germ produces a powerful poison or endotoxin. The disease is spread by flies and water contaminated by the germs.


    Home Remedies for Cholera
    Cholera home remedies and natural cures, Questions and answers

    Cholera treatment using Lemon
    The foremost among the many home remedies for cholera is the use of lemon. The juice of this fruit can kill cholera bacilli within a very short time. It is also a very effective and reliable preventive against cholera during an epidemic. It can be taken in the form of a sweetened or salted beverage for this purpose. Taking of lemon with food as a daily routine can also prevent cholera.

    Cholera treatment using Guava Root Bark
    The root bark of guava is rich in tannins and it can be successfully employed as a concentrated decoction in cholera. It arrests vomiting and symptoms of diarrhoea. About thirty grams of the root bark should be used in half a litre of water to make the decoction. The water should be boiled down to reduce it by one-third. This decoction can be taken twice daily.

    Cholera treatment using Onion
    Onions are another valuable remedy for cholera. About thirty grams of this vegetable and seven black peppers should be pounded finely in a pestle and given to the patient in two or three doses during the day. Onions allay thirst and restlessness and the patient feels better.

    Cholera treatment using Bitter Gourd
    The fresh juice of bitter gourd is an effective medicine in the early stages of cholera. Two teaspoons of this juice, mixed with an equal quantity of white onion juice and a teaspoon of lime juice, should be given twice daily in the treatment of this condition.

    Cholera treatment using Drumstick Leaves
    The leaves of the drumstick tree are also useful in this disease. A teaspoon of fresh leaf juice, mixed with one teaspoon of honey and a glass of tender coconut water, can be given two or three limes a day as a herbal medicine in the treatment of cholera.

    Cholera treatment using Cucumber
    A glass of fresh juice of cucumber leaves with an equal quantity of tender coconut water, given in doses of 30-60 ml, forms a valuable remedy for excessive thirst during cholera. It acts excellently by restoring the acid-base balance in dehydration.

    Cholera treatment using Nutmeg
    The herb nutmeg is a valuable remedy for dehydration caused by cholera. An infusion made by steeping half a nutmeg in half a litre of water should be given along with half a litre of tender coconut water in doses of 15 ml at a time in treating this condition.

    Cholera treatment using Clove
    Cloves are useful in cholera. About four grams of this spice should be boiled in three litres of water until half of the water has evaporated. The decoction thus prepared should be given to the patient several times during the day. This will reduce the severe symptoms.

    Cholera treatment using Rough Chaff
    The powdered root of rough chaff, botanically known as Achyranthes aspera, is also helpful in cholera. About six grams of the powder should be thoroughly mixed with half a cup of water and given to the patient once daily.

    Cholera kills by dehydration and electrolyte imbalance. Treating with ORS - oral rehydration solution is the preferred treatment if IV fluids aren't available. Even if they were available, use of antibiotics would be of marginal use and risk further disrupting normal flora in the gut....

    The treatment is keep liquids going in one end as fast as they're coming out the other....

    All of the sports drinks claim that. None of them are correct: Sweat is both individual and variable.

    In general, the sports drinks have too many electrolytes, and way too much sugar (in whatever form). Not good. If you want to drink a sports drink (especially if ill), cut it around 50% with water.

    You should have both the sugar, and the salts (sodium and potassium), in the drink to maximize the absorption of water by the intestine. The channels that move water from the lumen (the inside of the pipe) through the wall are cotransporters that use water, sodium, glucose and potassium: Both water and the other item need to be there to make it happen. Thats why home-made ORS works as well as the store-bought stuff, it just doesn't taste as good.

    BTW, if making ORS, use sugar or honey. Artificial sweeteners don't work (and some can cause diarrhea on their own).

    If the patient is able, drinking is better, I think, than IV fluids. It triggers regrowth of gut lining (which is destroyed by the cholera).

    Even in situations where I have lots of IV fluids available (which isn't very often, in treating cholera) I'll just give the patient enough IV fluid to buff them up, get them conscious and able to drink, and then have them start oral fluids....

    Are you referring to Sorbitol? I've had a friend mention that it has been used (in sufficient quantity) as a laxative.
