Effective Homeopathic Medicines for Bacterial Infections

Bacterial infections can occur anywhere in the body and make you ill. Bacteria are living things with only one cell and most are helpful, except the infectious bacteria. They reproduce quickly in the body. Homeopathic medicines are of great help in dealing with bacterial infections. Made of natural substances and completely safe with no side effects at all.

Homeopathic Medicines for Bacterial Infections affecting Gastro-intestinal Tract

The various diseases that may arise in the gastrointestinal tract because of bacterial infections are cholera, dysentery, food poisoning, and peptic ulcer.

1. For Cholera Infection

The bacteria that leads to cholera infection is Vibrio Cholerae. The symptoms include diarrhea (rice watery stool), vomiting and rapid dehydration. The natural medicines that are very beneficial in treating cholera are Camphor, Veratrum Album, and Cuprum Metallicum.
Camphor is the top natural remedy when extreme coldness accompanies diarrhea and vomiting. The whole body feels cold to touch. The stool is not so copious but exhaustion and coldness manifest themselves to the utmost degree. Veratrum Album is the ideal medicine when the diarrhea is very copious with excessive vomiting. Along with profuse diarrhea, the patient faces a collapsed condition. The face is blue or pale with sunken eyes and icy coldness. So, while scanty stool with exhaustion and coldness points towards the use of Camphor, copious stool with coldness and exhaustion give an indication for selecting Veratrum Album. Cuprum Metallicum is the best remedy when a patient has cramps in abdomen and legs along with diarrhea and vomiting. Extreme nausea is also experienced.

2. For Treatment of Dysentery

Dysentery is a condition where a person passes loose stool or poop containing blood and mucus. Abdominal pain and fever are also present. Tenesmus is a condition where a person does not get satisfaction from passing stool and feels a constant urge to pass stool. The bacterial agent behind dysentery is Shigella. The best natural medicines for dysentery are Merc Sol, Aloes and Nux Vomica.
Merc Sol is the top remedy for treating dysentery with blood in stool in excess. Bleeding is accompanied by colic and tenesmus. Aloes is the ideal remedy when mucus in excess is present in the stool. The stool is watery and is accompanied by colicky pain in the lower abdomen. Nux Vomica is the best remedy when the person has abdomen pain that is slightly relieved after stool. The desire to pass stool is almost constant. The stool remains unsatisfactory.

3. Arsenic Album: For Food Poisoning

The bacteria that lead to food poisoning are Campylobacter, Clostridium, E.Coli, and Salmonella. Food poisoning leads to gastroenteritis. The symptoms include diarrhea and vomiting. Pain in the abdomen, fever, and nausea are the other symptoms. The best natural medicines for the treatment of food poisoning are selected after taking note of the particular symptoms in each individual.
Arsenic Album is the best remedy for food poisoning cases with loose stool and vomiting. The vomiting and stool occur soon after eating or drinking anything. Fever with a thirst for water are the usual accompaniments. Marked prostration due to loose stool is also covered under Arsenic Album. Arsenic Album should be considered as the first line of treatment in every case of food poisoning.

4. Treatment of Peptic (Gastric and Duodenal Ulcer)
