Leprosy


What is leprosy?

It is a chronic infectious disease caused by bacteria, Mycobacterium leprae.  It affects the skin, mucosa, upper respiratory system, eyes and even involves nerves. Since time immemorial, leprosy has a social stigma associated with it and some people still believe that leprosy is incurable. It is among the least infectious communicable diseases. It can spread from one person to another by only a prolonged close contact.

Symptoms involve:

Painful thickening of nerves, skin discoloration, loss of sensation in skin, thickened patches of skin, nasal congestion and even nose bleeding. It can lead to physical disabilities and psychological impairment.

Types of Leprosy:

A. Tuberculoid  Leprosy:

The skin lesions appear as light red or purplish spots. Also, it is the more benign type and is accompanied by involvement of nerves leading to numbness of the extremities, contractures, and ulceration.

B. Lepromatous Leprosy :

The skin lesions appear as yellow or brown infiltrated nodules (protuberances) affecting the mucous membranes of the eyes, nose, and throat.  These are associated with thickening of the skin, especially the face and ears.

Conventional approach:

Once detected, multi-drug therapy is given depending upon the type of leprosy. The severe cases where ulcers develop on the skin and other deformities occur, rehabilitation is provided. Treatment lasts from about 6 months to a year depending upon the type of leprosy.

HomoeoCARE’s approach:

Homeopathy has been treating patients of leprosy from the days when even the antibiotics were not discovered. We at HomoeoCARE follow a two-pronged approach. On one hand we treat the patient with homeopathic medication which strengthens the immune system, on the other, we educate the people to eliminate the social stigma associated with leprosy.

HomoeoCARE’s success:

Homeopathy has a treatment for leprosy and by following an individualistic approach, one can be cured of this disease. We have successfully treated a female aged 23 years whose was diagnosed with lepromatous leprosy. After getting cured, she was able to lead a normal life.

 With HomoeoCARE, Leprosy is no more a stigma.

I got good results within ten months of starting treatment for Alopecia. I can see the difference. The density of my hairs has also improved with treatment. Thank you HomeoCARE for dealing with my health issues very appropriately. It's the greatest change for me in my life!

I started my treatment from HomoeoCARE in August 2015. I was facing lot of problems, then homoeocare doctors treated me so well. Dr Nancy helped a lot and now my problem has been decreased. Earlier I was facing hair problems, then I started treatment and my problem has been finished. I was also having eyes problem .My eyes were so dry and now the dryness has been decreased. I was also having breathing problem and now it has been controlled. I am very happy with HomoeoCARE. They treated me so well, their doctors listened my every problem.

Jyotsana pehle kaafi jyada bimar rehti thi jaise fever, cold, cough, vomiting, skin problem, eyes problem takreeban saari hi bimariyaan thi . Kariban 1 month se ye sab kuch nahi hai, Jab se homoeocare me aaye hai. pehle khane pine me bhi muskil thi lekin ab thoda theek hai. Umer ke sath bimariyaan kam hone ki bjaye increase ho rahi thi . Lekin yahaan aane par kaafi fark padha hai . Pehle inhaler nebulizer 6-7 baar dena pdta tha lekin ab kareeb 1-1.5 mahine se nahi diya hai, pehle balgam bahut banta tha lekin ab aisa nahi hai. sneezing and cough bhi lagbag kam hi hai.
