Tick Borne Encephalitis (Tbe)- Treatment With Herbal Products


Tick borne encephalitis is a viral disease which spreads through bites of infected ticks. This infection can spread through infected food items like milk, cheese, etc. TBE viruses are more active during hot seasons like from April to October. These viruses are mostly found in the regions of Europe and Asia. Most of the people infected from this tick virus usually do not have any symptoms. Initially, symptoms are like cold and flu but later on it may worsen the condition. The incubation period is usually from one to two weeks but it may be up to one month. Sometimes initially symptoms resolve themselves but after some time one or two weeks severe symptoms may appear. Although it is a rare condition, it has become common in Sweden, China and European countries. This disorder is more common in adults as compared to children. According to the world health organization around 10,000 cases are seen all over the world. In this article we will discuss tick borne encephalitis, its cause, symptoms, diagnosis and its management according to classical Ayurveda texts.

Tick Borne Encephalitis (Tbe)


Tick borne encephalitis is a disorder which affects the central nervous system caused by Tick Borne Virus (TBV). This viral disease can be transmitted through unpasteurized dairy products. In the early stage there is fever, loss of appetite, body aches, etc. Later on there will be swelling in the brain and spinal cord which leads to disturbance in brain functions like confusion, memory loss, etc. Some experience persistent impairment of motor skills and sensory functions. Tick borne encephalitis can be easily prevented by already having vaccination but if you get infected symptomatic treatment or hospital care may be done. It is usually diagnosed by testing immunoglobulins antibodies in cerebrospinal fluid and other blood investigations. Sometimes these investigations may be insignificant which can be confirmed by microbiological findings. Clinical aspects of this disease may range from meningitis to severe encephalitis which might include paralysis. With the increase in tourism TBE is becoming a problem outside endemic regions. The primary reservoir and host of this virus are small rodents and humans play an accidental role. There is no direct transmission of this disorder from person to person.
