Joint Allopathic Homeopathic efforts to curb dengue at Pakistan

Islamabad—A joint effort of Homeopathy and Allopathy physicians for finding out complete cure of Dengue may produce positive results and help get rid of the fatal disease.

It is not a war between Allopathy and Homeopathy but time for medical experts from both fields to join hands and save lives of people, said Homeopathic doctor Zakia Hashmi.

Talking to mediamen she said, “According to a Hadith, every disease has a cure except for death. Dengue is no exception.” When Dengue Mosquito bites a human, it attacks on the immune system and the white blood cells (WBCs) and platelets start to decrease immediately, Dr Zakia said adding, platelet count in a healthy person ranges from 150,000 to 400,000.

It spreads when a normal mosquito bites a patient of dengue and then the virus is transferred from him to the mosquito making it a dengue mosquito, the doctor said. High fever, severe pain in eyes, severe body pain, nausea, itching and red spots on the body and in severe conditions, bleeding from skin, nose, teeth and large intestine may occur are common symptoms of the disease, she said.

Homeopathy doctor said the fever usually lasts from three to five days, and rarely more than seven days.“Dengue mosquito (Aedesaegpyti) originates from clean water. It is a day-time biter and lives in close proximity to humans in urban areas”, the doctor said.

Tests can diagnose this fever only after the patient has been affected by it for more than four days, Dr. Zakia said adding, Dengue fever can take a more severe form dengue hemorrhagic fever. Its symptoms include loss of appetite, vomiting, intense abdominal pain, shock and bleeding from the nose or under the skin and can be fatal if not treated on time, the Doctor warned.
