Ayurvedic Treatment for Amoebiasis

Amebosis is mostly prevalent in that states where standards of public hygiene and sanitation may be near to the ground. Amebiasis is spread by consuming contaminated food or water containing the cyst stage of the parasite. It can also be spread by person-to-person contact. In severe cases, ulcers may form in the intestinal wall; the amebae gain access to the bloodstream and travel to the liver to form abscesses.

Treatment of Amoebiasis

Treatment of Amoebiasis depends on the severity of infection in patients. If infection is not severe medication should be preferred .Specific antibiotics such as metronidazole can be prescribed by a physician to treat amebiasis. Usually, metronidazole is given by mouth for 10 days. Amoebic liver abscess can be cured without drainage and even by one dose of metronidazole. Clinical differences should occur during the first 3-4 days of treatment. Metronidazole failure may be an indication for surgical intervention.

Iodoquinol, Paromomycin, Diloxanide, Tinidazole these drugs effective against trophozite and cyst forms.  If patient suffer from vomiting, you may need to receive medications through a vein (intravenously) until you can tolerate them by mouth.  Ant diarrheal medications are usually not prescribed because they can make the condition worse.

After treatment, the stool should be rechecked to make sure that the infection has been cleared. These drugs have side effects that your physician can discuss with you. Occasionally, it may be necessary to drain a liver abscess. In some cases where medicine is not responding patient has advice to next step goes for surgery. Here are some conditions like

  • Concern of bacterial suprainfection in amebic liver abscess;
  • Failure to respond to metronidazole after 4-day treatment duration;
  • Empyema after amebic liver abscess rupture;
  • Large left-sided amebic liver abscess representing risk of rupture in the pericardium; and
  • Severely ill patient with imminent amebic liver abscess rupture.

Surgical drainage of uncomplicated amebic liver abscess is generally unnecessary and should be avoided.
