Jaundice increase in winter season causes and remedies
Dr. Muhammad Mahtab Hossain Mazed
In the winter season, the prevalence of diseases like respiratory tract infections, diarrhea, jaundice, dysentery, eye inflammation, skin diseases and fever increasesIn order to stay away from these diseases, Dr. MM Mazed, a distinguished researcher and founder of the Jatiya Rogi Kalyan Society, urged to increase awareness such as avoiding dust, using a handkerchief when sneezing and coughing, and washing hands well. Our pollution level has increased. Pollution is mainly responsible for respiratory infections.
"And our lifestyle is also a big issue. We still spit wherever we go, causing these diseases to spread through the air. This winter has started slowly and the number of patients is slowly increasing. And to avoid diseases, he advised to stay at a distance of one meter from anyone, not to shake hands, not to hug, cover the mouth while sneezing and coughing, wash hands and stay cleanToday's topic Jaundice - Jaundice is a serious disease Many people think when they hear about jaundice, what is it; Often times, totka or Mamuli Kabiraji gets better with treatment. But as doctors, we are a little worried about jaundice.
Jaundice, whatever its type or cause, is always a serious symptom. Jaundice is not a disease itself, but a symptom of another disease. Jaundice can be an early symptom of anything from a viral infection to cirrhosis or cancer. So do not ignore jaundice. Jaundice is an English word though. Yet it has become attached to the current Bengali word. By Jaundice we mean yellowing of eyes, yellowing of urine, loss of appetite, yellowing of mouth and in some cases even yellowing of skin due to any liver complication. We also call this as a symptom of jaundice. However, jaundice does not mean that the liver is damaged or affected in any wayFirst we need to know what we mean by jaundice. Bilirubin is one of many components in human blood. This bilirubin originates from red blood cells. When red blood cells are destroyed normally or abnormally, this bilirubin is produced in the liver and is then released into the blood and excreted in the stool and urine. If the level of this bilirubin is higher than normal, it starts accumulating in different cells of the body.
And then the normal color of the cell becomes yellowish. Yellowing of the skin and eye membranes is visible and diagnosed as jaundice. Jaundice can be caused by many reasons. First, if the red blood cells are destroyed excessively, bilirubin is produced in excess. For example, the blood disease called thalassemia. Second, if there is a problem with the bilirubin manufacturing plant i.e. the liver, jaundice will occur. Such as viral hepatitis, liver cirrhosis, cancer. Third, if bilirubin cannot be removed from the liver for some reason, obstruction causes jaundice. such as gallstones or tumors.
How do you know what type of jaundice you have? The cause can largely be identified by considering the history and symptoms of the disease. At a young age, anemia with jaundice is usually caused by excessive destruction of red blood cells, which is medically called hemolytic jaundice. Yellowing of the eyes and tongue after fever, right-sided abdominal pain, loss of appetite, vomiting or nausea is usually thought to be inflammation of the liver or hepatitis. If the level of jaundice increases a lot, accompanied by abdominal pain, fever with chills, body itching, then it is assumed that the bile duct is blocked and obstructive jaundice has occurred. Another name for it is surgical jaundice as it requires surgery in allopathic methodIn our country people of all ages have the highest rate of acute viral hepatitis or viral liver inflammation. In this time of coronavirus, the virus is a name of fear for everyone. The same applies to the hepatitis virus. These viruses are named by English letters, such as A, B, C, D and E viruses. E virus infection is highest among adults in our country. A and E viruses are spread through food or waterborne disease, ie contaminated food or drinking water, and usually do not cause long-term infection.
But sometimes it can cause serious complications. B, C and D viruses are blood-borne, caused by contact with contaminated blood. These viruses have more complications and can lead to long-term infections, which can lead to complications such as cirrhosis and cancer. In case of jaundice, it is important to consult a doctor without delay. The cause can be definitely diagnosed by listening to the patient's symptoms and doing some tests. Then action according to reason. In our country, there is a lot of misdiagnosis with short-term treatment of viral hepatitis. Brushing, reading garlands, various kinds of Kabiraji medicine or eating leaves are popular among a class of people in our society.
They have no scientific basis in the treatment of jaundice. In addition, these kaviraji leaves and roots often cause severe liver damage and delay treatment. The good thing about these viruses is that most of the time, the affected person recovers on their own within a few weeks. The patient is given complete rest, normal balanced nutritious diet with infrequent medication as per symptoms. Food should be easily digestible, healthy and pure. If there is no improvement within a few weeks or any abnormality occurs, it is important to consult a specialist homeopath without delay. These abnormalities may include loss of consciousness (encephalopathy), vomiting of blood or black stools, excessive weakness, abnormal behavior, etc.
Like many other diseases, viral hepatitis is preventable. Some simple hygiene practices, such as personal cleanliness, healthy food, drinking clean drinking water, not taking the blood of an infected person, or not using blades, syringes, etc. that have been used by others are one of the ways to prevent it. There are allopathic vaccines for A and B viruses, after which many have been infected.
Consult a homeopathic doctor.
★ Jaundice of the newborn:- Even if everything is fine, 70 to 80 percent of newborns may develop jaundice after birth. About 50 percent of children with jaundice have normal jaundice. If the baby's liver is a little late to become fully functional, the level of bilirubin in the blood increases and this jaundice occurs. At this time, under no circumstances should the newborn be prevented from breastfeeding. Normal jaundice should clear up within seven days. However, if jaundice appears within 24 hours of birth, if it does not resolve after seven or ten days, if the child stops or reduces food intake, if there is fever or infection symptoms, if the bilirubin level rises rapidly, the doctor's advice must be taken.

The patient is treated, not the disease, so an experienced doctorAccording to Hahnemann's homeopathic rules, treatment of any complex and difficult disease including jaundice is possible if the treatment is based on individual individuality, biotic symptoms, and metallurgical treatment. There is no such thing as eternal truth in medical science. Because once we heard that there is no cure for tuberculosis, now we hear that tuberculosis is better. All this is the result of progress and development of science.
