    Typhoid is a disease mainly occurring due to bad water consuming habits. Many times people don't inquire where from the water that he is drinking is collected. This is the reason to be affected by typhoid fever. These days, people do a traveling. That is why, sometimes they forget to keep pure drinking water with them all the time. So they drink water from any source and fall prey to various bacteria, including Salmonella typhi.
    Typhoid symptoms-As it is already mentioned by the questioner that typhoid fevers have similar symptoms as that of any normal fever. I know this because two of my closest relatives had suffered typhoid fevers. They had symptoms like severe headache, severe pain in the joints of the hand, then prolonged high fever the very next day. They also suffered from a continuous fatigues along with the pain. As a result of high fever they had loss of appetite too. Some people also develop rash in the entire body. One of my friends lost a lot of hair due to typhoid fever.
    Prevention from typhoid fever
    1. Drink mineral water. Do not drink from any source that is available to you.
    2. Drink plenty of fluids including water. You can also have few glasses of fruit juices in a day, if mineral water is not available to you. But drink plenty of liquids and various kinds of them.
    3. Lastly, there are two methods to avoid typhoid. One is vaccination procedure. This is given to infants. So you can give your infant a typhoid injection, if you want them to stay away from the typhoid fever. The other one is oral doses of typhoid. This is given to adults once in every five years. This helps them stay away from typhoid fever.

    Live life Kingsize!

    Typhoid is a bacterial infection. It is mainly caused by the bacterium named Salmonella typhi which enters intestinal tract, multiplies in number, infects it and then enters into the bloodstream and infects it too. These bacteria enter the human body through contaminated food and water (drinks as well). These bacteria travel to the liver, spleen, gall bladder and other parts of the body through the blood stream.

    The symptoms of typhoid at the initial stage include fever, headache, abdominal pain and weakness. As it advances symptoms like vomiting, loss of appetite, diarrhea, blood in the stools etc appear. When a person is diagnosed with typhoid, it is advisable to visit and consult the doctor instead of depending on home remedies. However, there are certain preventive measures / home remedies to avoid typhoid.

    Cleanliness of the surroundings and hygiene conditions are of utmost important to check the spread of disease as
    it is a highly contagious disease. Drinking safe / clean water and eating healthy / nutritious food and sanitation are important to avoid the spread of typhoid. Unfortunately, in India this is lacking in most of the cities / towns / villages.

    Some of the home remedies include:
    1. Increase the intake of safe / clean drinking water i.e purified water. In case of unavailability of water purifier, you can drink boiled and cooled water.

    2. In addition to water, keep consuming tender coconut water, fresh fruit juices and other liquid intakes to keep yourself hydrated.

    3. If you feel dehydrated, you can take home-made ORS (oral rehydration solution).

    4. Holy Basil is an effective remedy for typhoid. Holy Basil, commonly known as Tulasi, has antibacterial and antibiotic properties. It has the power to boost the body immune system. You can directly take the extract of Tulasi leaves 2-3 times a day for 2-3 weeks. You can also add ginger extract to Tulasi extract and boil it in 1 cup of water. Keep boiling till it reduces to half. You can take this tea (with honey if you like or without honey will also do) 2-3 times a day.

    5. Buttermilk or traditional lassi is yet another effective remedy for typhoid. You can drink 2-3 glasses of buttermilk a day which is a natural coolant and keeps your body cool. If you wish you can add the pulp of one fully ripe banana to the buttermilk and consume it. This is an excellent and effective herbal treatment for typhoid.

    Typhoid fever can be mainly prevented by drinking contaminated water. Never drink canned water and mineral water which is expired. Always drink boiled water. Especially if you add jeera when boiling water it is more good for health. Because typhoid virus is spread by water it self. If you drink hygienic water with clean hands then there is no fear of typhoid. In case if you get such symptoms then contact your doctor immediately and take proper medication. Typhoid fever is caused by Salmonellae typhi bacteria which is commonly found in contaminated food and water so always drink boiled water and eat cooked fresh food.
