WE ALL enjoy the rain with hot coffee, corn lot of delicious food, but at the same time we should be alert about the disease prominently occurring in rainy season. In monsoon, water is usually contaminated causing lot of water-born and other disease. We find jaundice, diarrhea in this season, but in 2006 Chicken Guniya and in 2009 Swine flu occurred in the month of August. Few diseases like sinusitis, asthma, rheumatic pins and skin eruption gets aggravated in monsoon. Hepatitis is a water born disease, the patient suffering from jaundice has persistent nausea and vomiting, loss of appetite, extreme weakness, low-grand fever, pain in right hypochondria ,constipation, yellow discoloration in eye, yellow coating of tongue and irritability.

As homoeopathy a single part of body can never be diseased, it is whole person who is sick. It’s a common belief that jaundice is due to viral infection through contaminated food or water, but when all the family members drink the same water and only one or two are suffering from jaundice and not the whole family, this creates confusion? Homoeopathy believes every individual is different immunity and any disease can attack you only when it resistance power is low. Homoeopathy has lot of medicines for symptomatic treatment of jaundice such as Lyco, NuxVom, China, Bryonia, Ocinum etc. Itaiso has few preventive medicines of the body when it is well selected by an expert.
Precaution: The water and food should be hygienic. Avoid oily food, milk, cream and butter during jaundice. Sugarcane juice is advisable as it provide glucose to the body.
When the patients start feeling a good appetite, this is the first sign of recovery.
