How to prevent getting TB (Tuberculosis)

TB is a common disease in third world, poor and developing countries. In Pakistan it is common.
TB is cure able disease but it is said that prevention is better than cure. First of all we must understand what is TB. TB is a bacterial disease, the bacteria which is responsible for common TB is mycobacterium Tuberculosis.

symptoms include:

*common cough with a progressive increase in production of mucus and

*coughing up blood.

* fever,

* loss of appetite,

* weight loss, and

* night sweat

The most common TB in Pakistan is pulmonary TB in which the bacteria attacks lungs and damage them.
coughing with progressive mucous is important symptom other symptoms may associate.

in immunodeficient persons TB bacteria may enter blood and spread to other parts of body like

* lymph nodes,

* genitourinary tract,

* bone and joint sites,

* meninges, and

* the lining covering the outside of the gastrointestinal tract.

and such TBs are named accordingly.

Treatment of TB is available, and this disease is cure able now.
in past thousands of people dies in world due to TB. but now it is 100 percent cure able.

now topic is ;


* The tuberculosis vaccine, known as bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG) may prevent the spread of tuberculosis and tuberculous meningitis in children, but the vaccine does not necessarily protect against pulmonary tuberculosis. It can, however, result in a false-positive tuberculin skin test that in many cases can be differentiated by the use of the QuantiFERON-TB Gold test

* It is extremely important to isolate patients suffering from tuberculosis and treat them effectively until the chances of them spreading the disease become negligible.

* At healthcare facilities, hospitals, and other treatment centers, certain standard ventilation and air purification / filtration mechanisms are followed in an attempt to curb tuberculosis from spreading further.

* Family and friends who were in close contact with patients diagnosed with tuberculosis are recommended to exercise additional caution. Conventional medicine may advise the use of antibiotics as a preventive measure toward how to prevent tuberculosis. We do not, but such persons should work towards keeping their immune systems strong; they could also use herbal antibiotics, such as garlic.

* In an attempt to minimize the risk of spreading tuberculosis and getting infected by the same, one must meet and interact with tuberculosis patients only after at least two weeks of treatment.

* Nurses, physicians, other healthcare staff, family, and friends of patients might be advised to wear a microfiltration mask while interacting with patients suffering from tuberculosis mainly to protect themselves from catching the infection.

* People suffering from persistent cough should try and avoid close interaction with people until they have been tested for TB, and others might want to maintain a safe distance from people with persistent coughs because there is a possibility of catching the infection.

* Advise people who have a persistent cough to eat well and get exposure to morning sunlight. If the cough continues beyond three weeks and shows no signs of decreasing; it is best to consult a physician.

* When in contact with patients suffering from tuberculosis or people with persistent coughs, it is advisable to wash your hands periodically with a disinfectant and warm water.

* While traveling to countries where tuberculosis is not completely eradicated, conventional medicine might advise one to get vaccinated. We in natural health and healing do not support vaccinations. Instead, we advocate keeping the body and its immune system well and strong. We also use herbal antibiotics, such as garlic. Do not underestimate garlic and other herbs – they are potent!

* Above all, as mentioned already a few times, it is best to concentrate on building immunity, staying healthy, eating well, and exercising regularly to prevent getting infected by tuberculosis or any other disease condition. This is, by far, the best way toward how to prevent tuberculosis.

If sign and symptoms of TB occur. see your doctor immediately and follow his prescription .
