OUR PERSPECTIVE OF THE DISEASE - JAUNDICE
WHAT DO JAUNDICE PATIENTS EXPERIENCE WITH OUR TREATMENT?
CAUSES FOR JAUNDICE
A FEW CASES WE HAVE TREATED FOR JAUNDICE
Jaundice (scientific name is Icterus) on its own is not a disease. It is only one of the observable conditions or symptom resulting from derangements of the hepatobiliary system that leads to elevated concentration of serum bilirubin.
We identify the cause of the jaundice and also the associated circumstances of the patient. So if the cause of the jaundice is gall bladder stone then that is treated. If it is due to the side-effects of certain drugs as mentioned above the same is addressed. If the reason is found to be a growth in the region that is addressed as well. There are separate treatment strategies for each of these situations. These strategies have been developed based on the experience of handling thousands of jaundice cases covering all its variants in type and severity. Some of the randomly selected cases have been sited here.
Presented below are four different scenarios demonstrated by 4 actual cases. These are representative examples of thousands of patients we have treated. The examples presented would might be extremely rare for any standard clinic practice but these are now somewhat routine at our clinics since the most difficult cases come to us for treatment after the prognosis from best available in conventional medicine is not sufficient for a sufferer.
One of the outcomes of the research of dr. Parimal banerji is that even after the disease jaundice has healed, the bilirubin levels remain marginally higher than absolute normal levels for a year or more. However, this has to be treated as normal and treatment can be safely discontinued unless there are other factors which suggest otherwise.
Steadily falling serum bilirubin levels
Improvement in the colour of the skin, sclera and urine
Improvement in the associated symptoms like loss of appetite
- Continued support by our medicines to improve and normalise the Liver functions even after the clinical condition of Jaundice has healed.
The most common symptom exhibited by a jaundice patient is higher levels of bilirubin in the blood stream. This results in the yellow pigmentation of the sclera (white of the eyes), skin and mucosa. Very dark coloured urine is also a very easily observable symptom.
Jaundice may be caused by various reasons. Some common ones are listed below:
Obstructive jaundice (cholestasis): caused due to the obstruction of the bile duct mostly because of gallbladder stones. Occasionally because of a growth in liver, pancreas or gall bladder.
Drug induced cholestasis: many very commonly used allopathic drugs have demonstrated the possibility of causing obstructive jaundice leading to high concentrations of bilirubin. These commonly used allopathic (conventional) drugs include oral contraceptives, some antibiotics (e.g. flucloxacillin, nitrofurantoin, etc.), Anti-sugar or antidiabetic drugs (e.g. Sulfonylureas), anabolic steroids, to name a few.
Drug induced hepatitis: very severe degree of jaundice can be caused by some very commonly used allopathic (conventional) drugs. These Include - paracetamol, anti epileptic drugs like sodium valproate, anti tubercular drugs (e.g rifampicin, isoniazid and pyrazinamide) and statins.
Important note about drug induced jaundice: it has been observed that a small yet measurable percentage of the population using the above drugs become affected by jaundice and hepatitis. However, it is almost impossible to predict which specific users would be adversely and sometimes fatally affected by these drugs. In fact in most cases there is considerable time lapse (days and even weeks) before the symptoms of this type of drug induced jaundice surface.
On the other hand almost all the above conditions for which these harmful drugs are administered are being treated satisfactorily and routinely and thousands of times with our harmless and mild homeopathic medicines which do not have any such side effects.
The treatment strategy for such drug induced jaundice or hepatitis is different. It is based on our proprietary research on the side effects of specific types of drugs.
Juvenile jaundice: jaundice of newborns is also quite a common occurrence and sometimes may become obstinate. Our medicines being absolutely without any side effects can be used even if the baby is only a few days old.
