Health Remedies - Tuberculosis

Product Categories

Tuberculosis is a common and deadly infectious disease that is caused by mycobacteria, primarily Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The bacteria usually attack the lungs, but they can also damage other parts of the body. TB is spread by aerosol droplets expelled by people with the active disease of the lungs when they cough, sneeze, speak, kiss, or spit. Certain factors such as smoking, alcohol, mental stress and strain, unhealthy living style, low body resistance, living in stuffy rooms, exposure to cold etc. may increase the risk for tuberculosis.

The common symptoms include coughing up of mucus and sputum, fever, loss of appetite, weight loss, chest pain, and night sweats. As the disease progresses patient may exhibit pleurisy (a sharp pain in the chest when breathing deeply or coughing) and hemoptysis (spitting up of blood). TB can almost always be cured with medicine, if treated in a proper way.
