Typhoid - Symptom, Treatment And Causes

What is Typhiod?

Typhoid is an illness that is caused by the Salmonella typhimurium bacterium. This bacteria lives in the bloodstream and intestine of human beings.

Typhoid spreads between people only by direct contact with the feces of a Salmonella typhimurium infected person.As no animal can be a carrier of this disease, so typhoid is always transmitted human to human.If typhoid is left untreated, approximately 1 among 4 cases of this disease ends up in death. Nevertheless if treated at the right time the mortality rate is less than 4 percent. Once the bacteria enters the body through the mouth, it the S.typhi bacterium stays in the host’s intestine for 1-3 weeks. After this it slowly makes its way into the bloodstream of the infected patient.Thereafter it spreads to other tissues and organs of the host. The immune system of the patient can hardly fight with the S.typhi bacterium, as it can live within the patient’s cells, shunned away from the host’s immune system.

Symptoms and Causes :

This disease is diagnosed by detecting the presence of this bacterium in the stool, blood, urine or the bone marrow samples of the infected patient.

Countries which have less access to clean water and proper washing facilities register higher number of typhoid cases.

Some of the safety rules while travelling for avoiding Typhoid are:

  • Drink bottled water.
  • In absence of bottled water, drink boiled water that has been boiled for at least one minute before its consumption.
  • Avoid eating foods from street food stands, or eat while the food is still hot.
  • Do not encourage yourself to have ice in your drinks.
  • Avoid peeled raw fruits, rather always peel the fruits yourself.
  • Beware of consuming any food that has been handled by someone else.

South America, Africa and Asia (especially India) are places which are more known for getting infected with this disease.

Treatment :

Before travelling to places which are considered to be high risk zones, getting yourself vaccinated against this disease is recommended. Vaccination against typhoid can be done by a one-off injection or by oral medications.

The live oral vaccine against typhoid consists of 4 tablets. You must take one tablet every day, with an approximation that the last tablet must be consumed 1 week before the travel.For inactive typhoid vaccine a single injection must be taken 2 weeks before the travel date.Typhoid oral live vaccination must be avoided if the person is ill, under 6 years of age or is suffering from HIV.

Treatable by medical professional Require medical diagnosis Lab test always required Short-term: resolves within days to weeks Spread through the air or contaminated surfaces
High fever and chill. Severe diarrhoea. Headache

Typhoid - Signs You Are Suffering From It!

Typhoid - Signs You Are Suffering From It!

Typhoid is as an acute illness commonly characterized by high fever and an impaired digestive system. This illness is caused by the bacterium ‘Salmonella Typhi’ and generally spreads from one person to another by means of food or water.

Causes of typhoid

  • Salmonella Typhi, the bacterium responsible for typhoid, primarily spreads on consumption of unhygienic street food and water.
  • Typhoid can also occur as a result of a poor sanitation system. In these cases, the bacterium spreads through fecal matters and the contaminated urine of the infected person.
  • Typhoid can also spread if you share the same food and water consumed by the infected person.

The symptoms generally appear within 1-3 weeks, after coming in contact with the already infected individual. The ensuing fever and discomfort remains for about 3-4 weeks. The symptoms are:

However, in most of the cases, the symptoms tend to improve from the third week itself.

The following treatments can be implemented in order to cure typhoid fever:

  • Doctors generally recommend a prescribed dosage of antibiotics in order to deal with the disease. 
  • Along with the prescribed dosage of antibiotics, the doctors recommend balanced consumption of various fluids such as natural fruit juices and water to restore hydration. A healthy diet packed with all the essential nutrients is another necessity that has to complement the dosage of antibiotics.
  • Choice of antibiotics should be Ceftriaxone, Cefixime, Azithromycin and Ciprofloxacin.


  1. The two most common complications are haemorrhage (including disseminated intravascular coagulation) and perforation of the bowel. Before antibiotics, perforation had a mortality of around 75%.
  2. Jaundice may be due to hepatitis, cholangitis, cholecystitis, or haemolysis.
  3. Pancreatitis with acute kidney injury and hepatitis with hepatomegaly are rare.
  4. Toxic myocarditis occurs in 1-5% of patients (ECG changes may be present). It is a significant cause of death in endemic areas.
  5. Toxic confusional states and other neurological and psychiatric disturbances have been reported.

Needs and Indications for Hospitalization-

Hospital admission is usually recommended if you have severe symptoms of typhoid fever, such as persistent vomiting, severe diarrhoea or a swollen stomach. As a precaution, young children who develop typhoid fever may be admitted to hospital. In hospital, you'll have antibiotic injections and you may also be given fluids and nutrients directly into a vein through an intravenous drip. Surgery may be needed if you develop life-threatening complications of typhoid fever, such as internal bleeding or a section of your digestive system splitting. However, this is very rare in people being treated with antibiotics. Most people respond well to hospital treatment and improve within three to five days. However, it may be several weeks until you're well enough to leave hospital.


Two types of vaccines are available

  • Injected
  • Oral 

The injected vaccine is more commonly used and  is also known as inactivated typhoid shot . It is injected in one single shot an it can easily provide protection against typhoid. This type is widely prevalent in cases where one has to travel to a typhoid infected place. However, one must be careful and should keep a tab as to what they eat or drink at the time of travelling. Also, this type of vaccine should not be administered on kids below 2 years old.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

Symptoms Of Typhoid In Hindi -  टाइफाइड के लक्षण

टाइफाइड के जीवाणु को साल्मोनेला टाइफी कहा जाता है. यह हमारे मुंह से हमारे शरीर के अंदर प्रवेश करता है. अधिकतम 3 सप्ताह तक हमारी आंतों में अपना घर बनाता है. उसके बाद यह आंतों की दीवार से होते हुए खून में प्रवेश कर जाता है. खून की सहायता से यह अन्य को और शरीर के कई अंगों में फैल जाता है. हमारे शरीर का प्रतिरक्षा तंत्र साल्मोनेला टाइफी से मुकाबला नहीं कर पाता है. क्योंकि यह जीवाणु हमारी कोशिकाओं में बिना प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली से प्रभावित हुए सुरक्षित रूप से निवास कर सकता है.

जीवाणुओं के कारण दुनिया भर में होने वाला टाइफाइड, भारत की भी एक आम बीमारी है. टाइफाइड के जीवाणु हमारी आंखों और रक्त प्रवाह में संक्रमण करते हैं. यह एक संक्रामक बीमारी है जो एक मनुष्य से दूसरे मनुष्य में फैलता है. एक अनुमान के अनुसार टाइफाइड के मरीज़ का यदि उपचार नहीं किया जाए तो 4 में से एक इंसान की मौत भी हो सकती है. टाइफाइड के आम तौर पर कई लक्षण होते हैं जिनके आधार पर चिकित्सक या फिर कोई भी इसके होने का अनुमान लगा सकता है. आइए देखें ऐसे ही कुछ लक्षणों को

टाइफाइड का आयुर्वेदिक उपचार

आयुर्वेद में तमाम रोगों का इलाज उपलब्ध है. आयुर्वेद से इलाज का एक अतिरिक्त फायदा ये है कि इससे सफल इलाज होकर सेहत तो ठीक होता ही है साथ में कई और आवाश्यक तत्व हमें मिल जाते हैं. थायराइड को अपनाना बहुत ही आसान और तरीके बहुत सरल हैं. थायराइड के इलाज के भी कई तरीके आयुर्वेद और घरेलु उपचारों में बताया गया है. इन तरीकों के कई फायदे हैं. सबसे बड़ा फायदा है कि ये आसानी से उपलब्ध है और इसका कोई साइड इफेक्ट भी नहीं है. तो आइए जानें कि थायराइड के उपचार के लिए कौन-कौन से आयुर्वेदिक तरीके उपलब्ध हैं-

  • मुलेठी: थायराइड में थकान का अनुभव जल्दी ही होने लगता है. इस थकान को दूर करने में मुलेठी बहुत कारगर है. इसमें थायराइड ग्रंथि को संतुलित करने वाला और थकान को उर्जा में बदलने वाला तत्व पाया जाता है. और इस प्रकार मुलेठी से थायराइड में आपको लाभ मिलता है.
  • जूस: थायराइड के मरीजों को कुछ फलों जैसे कि संतरा, अंगूर का रस, नारियल पानी, चुकंदर, अन्नानास, गाजर, सेब, पत्तागोभी आदि का जूस लगातार कुछ दिनों तक देने से उन्हें आराम मिलता है. यदि आप इन फलों को कच्चा खाना चाहें तो कच्चा भी खा सकते हैं.
  • साबुत धनिया: थायराइड के बीमारी में साबुत धनिया भी बहुत काम आता है. इसके लिए एक ग्लास पानी में दो चम्मच साबुत धनिया रात में भिगोकर रख दें. सुबह इसे मसलकर तब तक उबालें जब तक कि पानी एक चौथाई न रह जाए. इसके बाद थोड़ा ठंडा होने पर इसे खाली पेट पी लें. और फिर पानी में नमक डालकर गरारे करें. लगातार इस उपचार को करने से थायराइड से निजत मिल सकता है.
  • साबुत अनाज: बुत अनाज से बने खाद्य पदार्थों का सेवन भी आपको थायराइड से दूर रखने में आपकी मदद करता है. क्योंकि साबुत अनाज में फाइबर, विटामिन्स और प्रोटीन आदि प्रचुर मात्रा में पाया जाता है. ये सभी मिलकर थायराइड को बढ़ने से रोकते हैं.
  • आटा: यराइड में राहत के लिए आटा भी काम आता है. इसके लिए 5 किलो आटे के साथ 1 किलो बाजरे का आटा और एक किलो जौ का आटा मिलाकर इससे बनी रोटियां खाने से आपको काफी हद तक थायराइड से निपटने में मदद मिलेगी.
  • गो-मूत्र: सुबह उठकर फ्रेश होने के बाद साफ़ कपड़े से गोमूत्र को छान लें. फिर इसे सुबह खली पेट लें. इसे लेने के डेढ़ घंटे तक आपको कुछ नहीं लेना है. इस दौरान ये ध्यान रखें कि आपको फास्ट फ़ूड और तैलीय भोजन से दूर रहना है. आप पायेंगे कि इससे भी थायराइड ठीक हो रहा है.
  • अदरक: सभी घरों में प्रयोग किया जाने वाला अदरक में मौजूद गुण आपको थायराइड से लड़ने में मदद करते हैं. अदरक में मैग्नीशियम और पोटैशियम ही वो तत्व हैं जो थायराइड से आपको मुक्ति दिलाते हैं. इसके आलावा अदरक में एंटी-इन्फ्लेमेटरी गुण भी होता है जो कि थायराइड का प्रभाव कम करके उसे फंक्शनल बनाता है.

कुछ अन्य जड़ी-बूटी:
काला अखरोट, बाकोपा, निम्बी बाम, अश्वगंधा, इचिंसिया, मुलेठी, अदरक, गेहूं का ज्वारा आदि सभी जड़ी-बूटी थायराइड के उपचार में महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभाते हैं. लेकिन इनके उपयोग से पहले आपको किसी आयुर्वेद के डॉक्टर से संपर्क कर लेना चाहिए.

Typhoid Fever - Follow These Steps and Prevent It!

Typhoid Fever - Follow These Steps and Prevent It!

Typhoid is an infectious bacterial fever with an eruption of red spots on the chest and abdomen and severe intestinal irritation, brought about by the Salmonella typhi bacteria. It can also be brought about by Salmonella paratyphi, a related bacterium that generally causes a less extreme sickness. The bacteria are stored in water or in the food by a human carrier and are then spread to other individuals around them.

There are many ways to avoid typhoid fever:

  1. VaccinationTake one dose of the vaccine one week before travelling. The other is given orally in four cases, with one container to be taken every alternate day. Neither one of the vaccines is 100% effective. Both require repetitive immunisation since the effect of vaccines diminishes over time.
  2. Washing your hands: Frequently washing your hands in hot, soapy water is the most ideal approach to control contamination. Wash before eating or cooking food and after using the toilet. Use a hand sanitiser in cases where water isn't accessible.
  3. Drinking clean water: There are a few ways in which you can avoid getting typhoid fever spread by contaminated water.
    • Abstain from drinking untreated water.
    • Contaminated drinking water is a specific issue in areas where typhoid fever is endemic. Thus, drink only boiled or filtered water, or canned or packaged carbonated drinks.
    • Carbonated filtered water is more secure than non-carbonated filtered water.
    • Request drinks without ice.
    • Use filtered water to brush your teeth and try not to swallow water in the shower.
    • Clean water can get contaminated again in case it is not put away securely.
    • Store the clean drinking water in a container with a little opening and use it within four hours.
  4. Staying away from raw fruits and vegetables: Maintain a strategic distance from crude foods grown in the ground. Since crude produce may have been washed away in water, maintain distance from products of the soil that you cannot peel, particularly lettuce. To be totally protected, you might need to stay away from street food completely.
  5. Cooking: Pick hot foods. Keep away from food that is put away or served at room temperature. Steaming hot nourishments are ideal. Also, in spite of all precautions, there is no assurance that the food served at the finest restaurants is safe for your health. It is best to stay away from foods served by street side vendors. Completely cook all meats, fish and vegetables. Eat them while they are still hot.
  6. Washing: Wash your dishes and utensils with proper dish washing soap and water. Wash your cutting board particularly well with a cleanser and water.
  7. Peeling: Peeling fruits and vegetables protects you from typhoid. Eat natural products that have been freshly washed and peeled, for example, oranges and bananas. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

Vaccinations for Infants and Children
I am Dr Abhishek Goyal, I am M.D. paediatrics, a child specialist. I am working with my own clinic and a nursing home with the name of Vaishnavi mother and child clinics.
Today I want to tell you regarding the vaccinations. Usually, parents ask me, sir, should we give all the vaccinations to the child, they are very costly. I suggest them this is a thing we should always vaccinate our child with all the vaccinations. As the thing is prevention is always better than cure. And for prevention, the various vaccinations are very important. There are very important vaccinations like in this scenario, we are getting so many patients of chicken pox. And for chicken pox, the vaccination we give to the child is very effective. If the baby is vaccinated, then the baby is at least 90-95% is cured or prevented from chicken pox.

Secondly, if they get also chicken pox, it will be very mild. So according to same, there are so many vaccinations today we should give our neonates to the childhood. Like from the starting we should start from the B.C.G., O.P.V and Hepatitis B, which is given at the birth.
Then after 1 month, 2 month and 3 months there are 7 diseases from which vaccination can be given that is D.P.T. (diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus). Polio, injectable and oral according to the availability and H.I.P., Influenza-b and rota virus. With that hepatitis b is a very important vaccination also. One category is the meningococcal vaccine which is a very good vaccine for pneumonia.
At 9 months, the measles or M.M.R.
At 1 year, Hepatitis A for jaundice. For 15 months, we give M.M.R, chicken pox and at the age of 1 years, it is d.p.t. booster and 2 years it is typhoid.
These days, typhoid vaccine has arrived which can be given earlier around 1 year. Same after that we usually forgot, that 4 years is a very important milestone where the baby has to get the vaccinations which are M.M.R, 2, Chicken pox and D.P.T. And in ten years again the D.T. booster and in girls, it is the cervical cancer vaccine. So these all vaccines are there in all the vaccination charts and you should get your child vaccinated from all the deadly diseases.

For any further query, you can always contact me from the very good app called Lybrate app.

I am Dr. Dinesh Chawla practicing homeopath for 37 years. Homeopathy is a unique system of medicines which treats which treats patients with the medicines. It is very specific. Homeopathy does not treat any disease as such but treat the person. If anyone has typhoid fever, so its symptoms are common. But in homeopathy, we don't treat as per the symptoms. Like one person has very much thirst. Either person is thirsty in very small quantity or someone has no thirst. So, all the both of them will get the different medicines depending on their individual body structure and system. So, you have to be very observant of yourself. How do you feel better, what effects you, how emotionally you are affected by the disease, what point aggravates or release your symptoms.

These are considered in treatment. Homeopathy cures the disease. There is the misconception that the treatment takes time. But it is not true. It depends upon the disease itself. And it does not produce any aggravates and side--effects. Another misconception that it increases the disease cost. We treat the disease. When a person has some problem or body reacts to that influence as if you have some problem, you may get cold, sneezing and runny nose.

It is the least important part but if we suppress it by with homeopathic medicines, it goes away but again it gives a throat problem. Again with anti0biotics, it goes to a chest and slowly it may develop asthma. And when we start treating asthma, it will relief but the cold comes again. It is the suppress disease come back. This is not the new disease. It is the suppress disease comes back. It is a very good sign and this is how it gets cured. So always treat yourself and your family with homeopathy. Because it is the only medicine which has no side-effect and which cures completely. You can come to me at my clinic in Green Valley Plaza. Or call me through Lybrate.

Now how can we diagnose viral fever? It can only be diagnosed by symptoms and the descriptions given by the person that whether he is suffering from body ache, rashes, red eyes, cough and cold. These are the basic symptoms of viral fever. Diagnosis is basically done by symptoms and by complete blood count to rule out other infectious diseases like typhoid, hepatitis. Therefore we have to check basic blood parameters like complete blood count, ESR, peripheral smear for malaria antigen.

How can one treat viral fever? It can be treated symptomatically by paracetamol to reduce body temperature. Also you can do cold sponging, and take well nourished diet. If you add Vitamin you may consume Limcee in your diet. When there is deficiency in the body, it reduces immunity which fights and controls various infections in your body.

Here are tips of Homeopathic treatments
Here are tips of Homeopathic treatments

Hello, friends, I am Dr. Meghna Gupta. I am a homeopath the sweet pill doctor. Today we will talk about homeopathy. Homeopathy is a medical science development of Dr. Samuel Hanhnemann, a German physician. The principle behind the science is similia similibus curantur that is like cures like. In simple whatever substance can cause disease in large quantities can also cure the disease in small quantities. This is the principle behind this science. You must have seen that homeopathy is getting popular day by day. What is the reason behind this? The reason is that you try to treat the patient as a whole not only disease part. Try to give as less medicine as possible in minute doses in the gentlest way with least suffering and we try to treat the person as a whole, he feels better as a whole.

Sometimes the person comes to me ma am this also, this problem which I didn t even tell has also been cured that is the beauty of homeopathy. What I have seen in my practice in nowadays that most of the problems are psychosomatic disorders that are the disease first comes in the mind and then travels to the body. Though this is not true for all the cases that come to us yes it is appropriate for most of the cases that come to us. Why? Because we have so much stress relationships in life nowadays, such busy life, such sedentary lifestyles but very busy lifestyles, high-pressure jobs, competitiveness.

So many people are having problems like gastrointestinal disorders, acidity, acid reflux, hypertension, Blood pressure, thyroid, PCOD s, diabetes, hair fall, sinusitis, headaches, migraines and so on and homeopathy has shown wonderful results in all these things. Apart from these, we have very good results in female disorders, in child disorders, allergies from pollens, cold, dust, obstinate children and so on the list is endless and we have actually treated very well the patients of Dengue, malaria, typhoid, and jaundice. What I try to do in my clinic that I try to take very detailed case history of the person like his likes and dislikes his past family history, his own family history, and his relationship with his spouse, the relationship between his own parents, his birth history, his reaction to temperatures, his work life, the kind of work he does.

Why do you take so many questions? Why? Because we want to individualize the patients to an extent as possible so that we are giving him only one medicine which can take care of all the problems like you must not have seen in every case every side has its own limitations so homeopathy has its limitations but still it has been a very wonderful science and we are blessed to have such a nice science in our own reach. It s a boon for us, the mankind. When I see the wonderful results of this science I fall in love with this science every day.

If you want to know more about homeopathy and wonderful results it has you are very free to come to my clinic at MediEval or you can connect with me on Lybrate for online consultation. Thank you. Stay healthy.
