What are the causes and cure for treating meningitis?

Meniningitis is simply too serious a condition in its acute phase to be treated by home remedies alone. Please see a doctor at once. I am listing all causes of meningitis below, but I cannot stress enough that meningitis is not a condition to be ignored. You can use home remedies in the recovery period and these will help restore a person to good health.

There are two kinds of meningitis. Bacterial meningitis is caused by bacteria and the symptoms are a sore throat, a stiff neck, sensitivity to light, vomiting, headache, fever and/or a skin rash. This is life threatening and needs to be treated immediately

Viral meningitis is not amenable to drugs per se but still requires the supervision of a physician to manage symptoms as they develop. Symptoms are similar to bacterial meningitis but are not as severe. If the meningitis is due to a fungal infection it will respond to antifungal treatment.

In the recovery phase there are several remedies that may be used which I am listing below:

  • Garlic : A powerful natural antifungal and antibiotic
  • Licorice: Stimulates the immune system
  • Bee Propolis: Kills virus and bacteria. A potent natural antibiotic
  • Aloe Vera Gel: reduces pain and helps regenerate cells. Also an anti-inflammatory agent.
  • Vitamin C: Restorative and immune system regenerator

If you suspect that you or a dear one has meningitis do not wait to go to the hospital.
