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)

The bacteria behind peptic ulcer is Helicobacter Pylori. The main complaint is a pain in the abdomen that is mainly burning in nature and which gets worse on eating in case of gastric ulcer and is relieved by eating in duodenal ulcer cases. Vomiting, blood in stool or vomitus, bloated feeling, belching, weight loss, appetite loss are other common symptoms of peptic ulcer disease. The natural medicines that are of great help for treating peptic ulcer disease are Nux Vomica, Kali Bichromicum, Lycopodium and Phosphorus. Nux Vomica is the best remedy for pain in the abdomen with pressure in the stomach that worsens a few hours after eating. Intake of coffee, spices, and alcoholic drinks may worsen the pain in persons needing Nux Vomica. Vomiting usually brings relief to the patient. Kali Bichromicum is the ideal remedy when pain and heaviness in the stomach are felt soon after eating. Nausea and vomiting also occur. Lycopodium is the top medicine for a bloated abdomen with belching. Loss of appetite may also be felt for using Lycopodium.

    Hello. My dad (86) has had Klebsiella in his blood and urinary tract 5 times in two years. He was in the hospital the past 6 days and has returned home with IV treatment for the next 3 weeks. I would like to discuss homeopathic remedies with you to supplement. He has had scans of his heart, liver, gall bladder, and urinary tract and found no issues. We must try to get to the root of the problem and help him to improve his immune system. His primary doctor Dr Kaushel (Indian) is supportive that we reach out for additional help. We live in the Los Angeles area. My mobile number is 510-435-6814 if we could please have a consult. Thank you, Carolyn

      Hello please help, I have a bed sore that is 8 years old that the sound drs. can’t clear up and neither can the dermatologist. Can you help????

  14. Hello,
    I would like to see how I can cure the following:

    We were exposed to mold/wate damage and all got sick.

    Main symptoms are the mold mycotoxins and bacteria/fungi went into the nose, causing brain inflammation (confirmed by Neuroquant MRI and blood/urine). Did a lot of detox and supplementation. Affected the thyroid and other things.

    The main concern is:
    Tinnitus, brain fog, vision got worse and hearing is muffled sometimes and I hear mild ringing/pressure from deep inside the head (possibly the labyrinth) and vestibular system (ear) is messed up–balance issues, some vertigo, dizziness (not severe but always there).

    Get lightheaded when entering stores. The doctor says it happens from brain inflammation/ocular nerve and inner ear, etc. Hippocampus was affected.
    Memory loss came back with PC oil and Fish oils.

    Thank you, need to feel no more brain fog or light-headed or dizzy, hope to fix vision/floaters that resulted from it too.

    I also experienced de-realization, de-personalization, which means you feel detached from life/lack of motivation and it’s from mold affecting a section of the brain, per my specialists.

    We now live in a brand new home, we left the other homes that had water damage but we now need to heal.

    Thank you!
