A fever is your body’s natural way of responding to an infection and is generally not a cause of concern. However, when you have high fever for several days which may go up to 104 degrees Fahrenheit coupled with weakness, abdominal pain, and headaches; you need to consult your doctor. These are the symptoms of typhoid, a bacterial infection caused by the bacteria – Salmonella typhi.
Although typhoid is not a dangerous health condition, it may be fatal if left untreated and it is found that 25% of the untreated cases result in death. You are at risk of contracting typhoid through contaminated water and food and it is passed on by human carriers who carry the bacteria in their intestines and bloodstream. Through studies, it is understood that typhoid causing bacteria, S typhi enters the body through the mouth and rests in the intestine for about one to three weeks. Later, it gets into the bloodstream and spreads into other organs and tissues. For an effective and the best typhoid treatment sans antibiotics that give side-effects, you should rely on remedies provided by Homeo clinics.
