Astrology of typhoid fever.
How is typhoid caused?
The bacterium Salmonella typhi
is present only in human beings and is transmitted through contaminated food or water. People with this infection carry the bacterium in their intestines and bloodstream, and those who have recovered from the disease could still have the bacterium in their system; they are known as ‘carriers’ of the disease. Both ill people and carriers shed Salmonella typhi
in their stool
. Infection is usually spread when food or water is handled by a person who is shedding the bacterium or if sewage water leaks into drinking water
or food that is then consumed. That is why this disease is common in areas where proper hand washing techniques are not followed.
What are the common symptoms of typhoid?
Once the bacterium is ingested it quickly multiplies within the stomach, liver or gallbladder and finally enters the blood stream causing symptoms like fever (usually between 1030F- 1040F), rashes (flat, rose-coloured spots), vomiting, loss of appetite, headaches, general fatigue. In severe cases one may suffer from intestinal perforations or internal bleeding, diarrhoea or constipation.
One of the characteristic symptoms of typhoid is a ‘step ladder fever’. This means that the fever gradually fluctuates between very high and low fever for a short period of time, till it peaks at 1030F – 1040F. In patients without any complications the condition subsides in about three to four weeks after its onset. In about 10% of people, the condition relapses after about one week of convalescence.*
