Are There Natural Products To Prevent Sepsis
No: Despite anecdotes and ads, no "holistic" remedy helps much. I start with topical Clindamycin with or without a retinoic acid derivative. If needed after a few weeks, consider adding an oral antibiotic such as Erythromycin or tetracycline / Minocycline as suitable for the individual. Dermatologists have the big guns -- accutane, lasers. Freedom from acne should be a person's right. Good luck. ...Read more
No.: Kidney death (if irreversible) is not treatable except for by dialysis or kidney transplant. Kidney disease is treatable mostly with control of blood pressure and risk factors (like diabetes, cholesterol, protein in urine). There are "natural" things which may be beneficial (sodium bicarbonate, red rice yeast extract) but this has not been firmly established. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Unfortunately, no: There are thousands of supplements advertised to do all sorts of magical remedies. Very few supplements have real research studies to show benefits (but manufacturers make claims, based on theories, animal tests, testimonials, chemical similarities, etc... But not on real research because real research is hard & expensive to do). No supplement has been shown to prevent any particular infection. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
NOT REALLY: Good hand hygiene and keeping your hands off your face helps decrease your risks though. ...Read more
Not really: There is intense ongoing experimentation in this process called tolerance-universal acceptance of foreign tissue. Current approaches involve extensive manipulation of the immune system with drugs, radiation, antibodies, etc. That are hardly "natural." tolerance is the holy grail of organ transplantation. Not there yet. Only natural way would be with identical (same placenta) twins. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Well: ... While sufferers of colitis will have diarrhea most of the time, diarrhea does not mean one have an underlying disease. You can have an "upset stomach", you ate soothing not fresh or spoiled or too much fruit etc.Etc. You can have diarrhea for a short period of time. Only if it goes on an on and is also accompanied by other symptoms and findings the search for the a diagnosis will start. ...Read more
NO: Hepatitis b is a dna virus which will infect its host regardless of race. However, this virus is passed through blood and vaginal or seminal fluids, which has resulted in increased frequency of infection within drug seeking populations or populations engaging in unprotected sex. Please see your physician if you suspect infection. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
None: Uveitis is an intrinsic inflammation of the eye interior without underlying infection. It is sort of like arthritis of the joints. No herbal remedy can help with this and since the consequences of untreated uveitis can be very serious, it is best to have an ophthalmologist see your eye(s) and apply the proper treatment which is usually very effective. ...Read more
Several: The first line of defense is the skin on the eye's surface, which acts as a barrier to infection. The tears contain antibacterial compounds, and when blinked away, carry infectious organisms with them off of the eye's surface. Eyelashes can catch larger particles that contain germs before they land on the eye. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Whoa!: If you really have parasites -- something worse than crab lice -- then you need to get with a scientific physician. If a practitioner of "live cell analysis" has showed you your blood teeming with "parasites" and offered to cure you with expensive medication, call your local district attorney -- it's a vicious scam. A good healthy diet & wise nutritional supplements can help you fight infection. ...Read more
Are there any natural supplements that can prevent my child from getting congestive heart failure?
Yes: If your palpitations are intermittent and caused by atrial fibrillation, exercise can reverse acute palpitations. By quickly increasing your heart rate by doing jumping jacks or a quick sprint, you can over-ride the signal to the heart and get back to a normal rhythm. It doesn't work for chronic palpitations and may not always work for intermittent ones , but it is worth a try. Don't over extend. ...Read more
Adjuncts only: Acne is a serious, chronic, non-lifestyle-related, non-hygiene-related disease that is often a major personal and professional liability. If two weeks on topical benzoyl peroxide has failed, you owe it to yourself (or your teen) to get to a scientific physician. Home remedies (tea tree oil, sleeping with your face smeared with honey, crushing blueberries) are adjuncts at best, folly at worst. ...Read more
