Hi sir, How does elephantiasis affect the whole body starting from the legs?
Is there any Homeoapthy treatment for that ?
Hi Kumari garu, Elephantiasis has been identified as one among the 6 major tropical diseases. Elephantiasis, also known as lymphatic filariasis. Elephantiasis refers to a parasitic infection that causes extreme swelling in the arms and legs. The affected skin can thicken and harden to look something like an elephant’s skin. The disease is caused by the filarial worm, which is transmitted from human to human via the female mosquito when it takes a blood meal. The parasite grows into an adult worm that lives in the lymphatic system of humans. The worms affect the lymphatic system in the body. The lymphatic system is responsible for removing waste and toxins. If it becomes blocked, then it doesn’t properly remove waste. This leads to a backup of lymphatic fluid, which causes swelling. In the late stage of this disease, fibrosis develops surrounding lymphatics and in lymph nodes, Endo lymphangitis causes complete obstruction of lymphatic channels and in abnormal patterns of dermal backflow development of lymphoedema. Homeopathic medicines mainly offer a supportive role to manage elephantiasis symptomatically. They help to manage swelling, thickness, hardness and cracks of the skin in these cases. The homeopathic medicine for Elephantiasis is selected after detailed case taking and its analysis. So, it is advisable to start any Homeopathic medicine for this condition after consulting a qualified Homeopathic physician and to avoid self-medication.
