Fighting Tuberculosis May Be Easier Through Use of the Natural Alternative Turmeric

21 Sep

Orlando, FL— September 21, 2016 — Today, many people are suffering from a wide range of medical conditions, including as tuberculosis. This ailment can be spread easily, and can affect anyone. There are medications available but there are also natural alternatives believed to be helpful for sufferers.

Fighting tuberculosis may be easier through the use of the natural alternative of turmeric. This ancient spice has long been believed to offer a range of health benefits. Most of its potentially therapeutic attributes are thought to come from its phytochemical called curcumin.

According to some clinical research, the compounds of turmeric could be a natural alternative to help fight TB. When combined with other herbs and conventional therapy, it may reduce the risk of side effects in the liver associated with the use of pharmaceutical medications.

Statistics show that one-third of individuals around the world are infected with the bacterium called mycobacterium tuberculosis, which causes the condition. A majority of people who are infected typically have a latent form of infection accompanied with inactive bacteria.  Individuals with a compromised immune system are typically susceptible to the condition. Weak immunity could allow bacteria to turn active and become a full-blown disease.

Tuberculosis can easily be spread since breathing in enough of mycobacterium tuberculosis can easily infect people. When an individual with active tuberculosis sneezes, coughs, or talks, the bacteria become airborne. This then allows the disease to spread easily.  According to experts, it is imperative to avoid spending too much time in crowded places with high infection rates, such as hospitals. These places increase the risk of exposure and infection.

Individuals who suffer from tuberculosis typically experience symptoms such as exhaustion, coughing up blood, unexplained weight loss, night sweats, fever, and chills. When the disease becomes active, the lungs start to get infected.

In lab experiments, it was found that turmeric compounds such as curcumin had demonstrated a promising potential antibacterial activity against tuberculosis. In some other animal studies, it was revealed that these turmeric compounds exhibited a greater success in potentially fighting the condition. It was also found throughout experiments that turmeric has the potential ability to decrease the toxic side effects linked with the use of conventional TB treatment. The unique spice was also found to be helpful in improving the efficiency of the most commonly used TB medications.  A curcuminoid compound of turmeric called demethoxycurcumin was found to offer a possible anti-tubercular activity.

Curcumin supplements are widely available nowadays. They are popularly used by many people worldwide who aim at reducing their risk against a range of health problems. Some of the more popular curcumin supplements contain a black pepper extract called piperine, which is believed to be a bioavailability-enhancing ingredient.
