Natural Cure For Leptospirosis
Are you an avid pet lover? Do you go about ‘oohing’ and ‘awww’ing when you see a dog or a cat passing by and unable to keep your hands to yourself? We love our entertaining visits to the zoo right! Most of us prefer the companionship of an animal friend and rejoice in the mutual fondness of the same! We, irrespective of being an animal lover or not, may find ourselves coming in contact with animals in any setting, directly or indirectly which brings us to the concern of ‘zoonotic disorders’.
Let’s learn about zoonotic diseases
Animals are also living beings, just like us, that live, hunt and most of the time, die in groups, so it might be no wonder that they often fall ill or die of diseases! These diseases are likewise in humans, maybe communicable or not. This may raise the obvious question, whether they can be transmitted to humans as well? Answer is yes, these creatures may carry within themselves harmful germs that perhaps could be spread to people and hence termed as zoonotic diseases. These so-called harmful microbes may be bacteria, fungi, viruses or even parasites and hence the variation is widely marked in the presenting diseases which could be even fatal!
Let’s talk about leptospirosis
Aforementioned, let’s continue discussing a specific and a widely known bacterial disease leptospirosis also known as Weil’s disease, and for this let’s introduce the bacterial villain here!
Leptospira interrogans is a gram negative spirochete bacterium and obviously causes the infection named leptospirosis, which can lead to potentially fatal infections of the kidney, liver, lung or even brain and heart! Clearly this zoonotic bacterium is not everyone’s favorite!
Biography of leptospira so that we can keep check on it
For starters, this bacterium is very species friendly and infects multiple species such as cats, dogs, horses or even human beings! Warm wet climate is their friend hence monsoon season should be looked out for and can very well invade through moist, softened skin or through mucous membranes!
Leptospira is a very motile bacterium and beware, it may survive in your environment for months! It viciously attacks the tissues of the species in order to commence the infection carefully by colonization! This bacterium then works its way down to the renal epithelial cells but unfortunately is our macrophages next meal! Leptospirans then may find any other animal in the surrounding area and infect them through the water they live in, i.e contaminated water!
Okay, so how do human beings get infected with this bacteria
This animal host, most of the time may show no signs of clinical symptoms and then release these bacteria through urine into the water! So next time when you go out swimming, kayaking, rafting etc.Watch out for these bacteria villains! So, human beings infect themselves with leptospirosis by contact with urine, fecal matter or any other body fluids of the host animal, or contaminated soil, water of the same!
Manifestations of leptospirosis in human beings
You might either experience zero to minimal symptoms or a plethora of symptoms that are really common such as high fever, nausea, chills, muscle aches, jaundice, red eyes, diarrhea, abdominal pain etc. but it can be identified neatly as it occurs in two stages or phases –The second phase is more severe and might include kidney damage, meningitis, liver failure which is usually followed by a recovery period from the first phase which is marked by fever, chills, headaches, or any of the symptoms previously mentioned.
Let’s fight this bacterium with a dash of ayurveda
The holistic science of ayurveda catalogs leptospirosis under a very important category of ‘krumiroga’
Krumiroga– a significant infection portrayed in ayurvedic science and is depicted exhaustively concerning its etiology, clinical elements and treatment. The term krumi denotes small creatures which live in the human body. Idea of krumi and their connection in the advancement of illness is portrayed in practically all ayurvedic samhita. Acharyas likewise portray krumi as an etiological component in different sicknesses.
