Here is a patient presented with complaints of severe gastritis, burning eyes, rashes all over his body and, even more worrisome for him is that, he could not smell or taste anything after an episode of antibiotic drug reaction, as doctors put it. He has come to the nature cure hospital for detoxification. A It's definitely a challenging case for two reasons. One is to restore normalcy and the other is to re-assure. The answer is a definite Yes. First, one should have faith in nature's capacity to heal. Secondly, follow the naturopathy principles to 'activate the eliminative organs to keep the internal organs healthy' so that the accumulated toxins and the morbid matter collected due to allergy to recent antibiotic therapy are removed from the system completely. Based on the symptoms and severity of the sickness, doctors would undertake treatments starting with compulsory in-house treatment to ensure complete rest and relaxation. The hydrotherapeutic treatments using water as the medium to dilute the synthetic chemicals of antibiotics that have vitiated the (bio) chemistry in the body - by application of hot/cold poultices and packs, administering eliminative and soothing diets (vegetable soups, porridges, boiled vegetables, boiled rice, curds, etc.) at regular intervals, mud packs, enemas to purge accumulated toxins from intestines etc., are employed as per the need. Meanwhile, the patient is made to practice self relaxation techniques which work on the neuro-immune system to help boost the recuperative power of the individual. The 2-7 days of treatment will go a long way in improving the immunity of the person - provided certain healthy practices are carried out at home after discharge. Follow-up, post-discharge, is as important as the treatment at the nature cure centre.
