Gangrene

Homeopathic treatment

Before delving into homeopathic treatment of gangrene let us first enumerate the options in allopathic or conventional medicine:

  • Surgery (amputation)
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
  • Maggot therapy
  • Antibiotics
  • Vascular surgery (to restore blood flow)
  • Biosurgery

Homeopathy in gangrene is turning out to be a light at the end of the tunnel. Prognosis is good if the patient is driven in at the right time. The medicines have a deep action and help in nourishing and revitalizing the fighting action of the arteries and the skin against the sickness.

The cessation of the circulation, loss of heat and sensation, loss of function and change in color, usually trawls the patient towards losing a limb. Homeopathy has the power to save the patient from losing that particular body part.

The pathology which has secured its effect cannot be reversed, instead, can be stopped and controlled from further deteriorating the part. Early intervention to this problem can help in avoidance of the spread of the disease.

My clinical experience helps me in stating that homeopathy works wonders in amputated cases. Recurrence is the norm in amputated cases. The body part which stays behind after amputation has not yet been unsoiled; this is where homeopathy runs its action. It avoids the further spread of the infection and stabilizes the situation then and there eventually making the affected part much better.

Clinically, most of the patients come to me just after amputation has been done and the wound is not healing and the patient is on high antibiotics and getting endless dressings done with no effect at all.

In fact the gangrene starts spreading to the part near the amputated area. Intervention with proper homeopathic treatment at this point shows amazing results. The post-operative wound heals promptly with growth of healthy tissue and the gangrene stops advancing bringing a smile on the face of the patient.

The symptoms such as soreness, burning, discomfort are controlled first and then slowly eradicated in cases of dry gangrene. The discharges, foul smelling exudates, discoloration of the skin are scrapped off without leaving any sign of recurrence.

For old people, homeopathy is the best option as the medicines are absolutely safe and easy to administer. They hold the reputation of safest medicines without any side effects.

What is gangrene

Gangrene is a perilous disease which can turn out to be life threatening in some cases.

In medical terms, it is defined as the death of the tissues of the body mainly due to loss of blood supply (due to an underlying disease or injury) to that part of the body or can be due to immense bacterial infection.

A type of necrosis, a non-communicable disease, it does not spread from one person to another.

What are the types

Gangrene has been divided into following according to pathology:

  • Dry gangrene: End result of chronic ischemia without infection. The affected part is dry, purplish blue-black in color and shrunken. It may then slowly slough off the body.
  • Wet gangrene: Involves always an infection and affects the tissues which swells and blisters and is wet because of pus. There is aching pain with swelling, reddish skin color and ulceration. The progression is rapid within hours and days. The most common bacterial infection is the clostridium perfringens which can cause myonecrosis or muscle fiber death. It may develop after frostbite, injury or any kind of burn. Wet gangrene often leads to shock and death if left untreated.
  • Gas gangrene: Presence of gas in the gangrenous tissue is described as gas gangrene which develops in the muscles or organs. It is a rare form but is dangerous and is a result of trauma or surgical injury. The appearance of the skin is pale and grey, slowly evolving to a purplish red color, making a crackling sound when pressed due to the presence of gas in it.
  • Internal gangrene: This type of gangrene affects one or more of your internal organs such as intestines, gallbladder or appendix. It occurs due to blockage in the organ causing obstruction in blood supply. Condition most commonly observed in cases of strangulated hernia.
  • Fournier’s gangrene: Discovered in 1883, this is a disease of progressive gangrene of the perineal, perianal or genital areas. Seen most commonly in men. There is severe pain in the scrotum or in the penis due to the necrosis of the tissue caused due to thrombosis of the blood vessels under the skin. It is also seen in children from infancy to adoloescence.

Site of affection

Usually seen affecting the limbs, specially lower extremities.

What are the causes

The main cause of gangrene is blockage of blood supply to the particular part of the body leading to cell death. The reasons of blockage are as follows:

  • Long-term smoking
  • Open bone breaks
  • Severe frostbite

  • Infection usually due to bacteria Clostridium
  • Post-surgical complications

What are symptoms

The symptoms for the different types of gangrene differ accordingly. But first we will collectively go through the symptoms which are commonly seen.

  • Clear line of demarcation separating the gangrenous part and the healthy part of the affected area
  • Color changes of the affected parts, from pale to red or brown and finally greenish-black
  • Fever
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Rapid breathing
