Whipples disease homeopathic treatment

Whipple's disease is a rare, infectious, gastrointestinal disease that occurs due to exposure to the bacteria Trophyrema whipplei. The most apt description is that Whipple's disease results in malabsorption of essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals into the body. This primarily manifests as a gastrointestinal disease, but it can also effect other parts of the body, such as the brain, lungs, heart, skin, joints, and eyes. This is because those essential nutrients are necessary for the proper functioning of these organ systems, and without them, serious repercussions will occur.

Symptoms of Whipple’s Disease

In people with Wilson's disease, copper begins accumulating in the liver immediately after birth, but signs and symptoms rarely occur before the age of five or six and sometimes not until ages 40-50.The most characteristic symptom of Wilson's disease is the Kayser-Fleisher ring - a rusty brown ring around the cornea of the eye that can best be viewed using an ophthalmologist's(eye doctor) slit lamp. The primary consequence for most of those with Wilson's disease is liver disease, appearing in late childhood or early adolescence as acute hepatitis, liver failure, or progressive chronic liver disease in the form of chronic active hepatitis or cirrhosis of the liver. The main symptom of liver disease is jaundice. Jaundice is the yellowish staining of the skin and sclerae (the whites of the eyes) that is caused by high levels of the chemical bilirubin in is produced when the liver breaks down old red blood cells.Bilirubin is then removed from the body through the stool(feces) and gives stool its normal brown color. The color of the skin and sclerae vary depending on the level of bilirubin. When the bilirubin level is mildly elevated, they are yellowish. When the bilirubin level is high, they tend to be brown. Icterus is the term for yellowing of the sclerae.Other signs and symptoms of liver toxicity include: abdominal pain and swelling; chronic itchy skin; dark urine color; pale stool color; joint pain; bloody or tar-colored stool; chronic fatigue; nausea; loss of appetite; fatty liver, fibrosis, cirrhosis, and liver failure.

In others, the first symptoms occur later in adulthood and most commonly include slurred speech (dysarthria), difficulty swallowing (dysphagia), and drooling.

Other symptoms may include tremor of the head, arms, or legs; impaired muscle tone, and sustained muscle contractions that produce abnormal postures, twisting, and repetitive movements (dystonia); and slowness of movements (bradykinesia). Individuals may also experience clumsiness (ataxia) and loss of fine motor skills.

A third of those with Wilson's disease will also experience psychiatric symptoms such as an abrupt personality change,bizarre and inappropriate behavior, depression accompanied by suicidal thoughts, neurosis, or psychosis.

Once the rest of the body begins to suffer from malnutrition or malabsorption of nutrients, people can begin seeing symptoms like enlarged lymph nodes, fatty stool, and endocarditis, as well as neurological problems such as dementia, memory loss, lack of concentration, headaches, seizures, and rapid eye movement. Many of the non-gastrointestinal symptoms occur later in the process, and by that time, it is essential that you begin antibiotic treatment if you want to recover from this ravaging disease.

Causes Of Wilsons Disease

 In Wilson's disease, a genetic mutation affects ATP7B, a protein that helps transport copper into the bile. ATP7B is

also involved in incorporating copper into ceruloplasmin, a protein that carries the mineral through the

bloodstream. The defects in the ATP7B gene mean that copper is not eliminated properly, and instead builds up in

the liver, where it can cause serious and sometimes irreversible damage.



Homoeopathic Treatment for Whipple disease

Since Whipple’s disease inhibits your body’s ability to absorb nutrients properly, it is essential to supplement it with minerals, like iron. You will be unable to properly digest iron, resulting in anemia and a low red blood cell count, which means you lose energy, suffer from headaches, and general weakness.

In Homeopathy, patients are treated rather than the diseases or syndromes or its effects. Homeopathy treats the patient as a whole (mental and physical state) on symptoms’ similarity. So, in Homeopathy, the prescription differs from person to person, each patient is treated individually for the set of symptom presentation. Homeopathy clears harboured indigestion and provides health by enhancing digestion andabsorption. 

Also, in Homeopathy, the medicines are not given just for arresting the diarrhoea or releasing constipation, but given for regaining normal rhythmic peristaltic movement. Giving paramount importance to patient’s feelings, precipitating factors, aggravating factors and ameliorating factors, the selected Homeopathy medicine will calm down the intestines and make them function normally. Altogether, Homeopathy can give cure or better relief from Whipple disease without any side-effects.
