Cholera is the name given to an infection which affects the small intestine. This particular infection is the result of the bacterium known as Vibrio cholerae. Consequently, one suffers from a lot of watery diarrhea. This is much more serious than it appears as this symptom, if severe enough, can ultimately prove fatal, because of the subsequent severe dehydration. There is a danger of cholera actually reaching epidemic proportions owing to conditions such as crowding and those of poor sanitation. You can get this dreaded disease if your food or water is already contaminated with the same. This disease usually presents itself as an unexpected and quick development of watery diarrhea. A rapid development, as a consequence of such diarrhea, is swift dehydration. Look for symptoms like lethargic behavior, less urine, dry mouth and rapid heart rate. Along with these symptoms of cholera, you might have other signs like abdominal cramping and vomiting. It is imperative that you take care of the resulting dehydration without delay. It is important that you let your doctor know about these symptoms as soon as you discover any cholera like signs. Remember that while you should be able to completely cure cholera, you have to beware of complications resulting from dehydration.

lemon is used typically as lemon juice for treating cholera. If you like, you can make a drink of this juice, using salt and sugar. When it comes to onion, a typical preparation is pounding a little onion with black peppers. Nutmeg has many wonderful properties and with cholera, powdered nutmeg is used. With about 500 ml of water, you can use root bark (about 30 gm) and boil it till only about a third of this water remains. Such a preparation to treat this disease can be ingested twice in a day. Bitter gourd may be used by taking the juice of the same and mixing it with other home remedies to fight cholera – that is, white onion juice and lemon juice. Drumstick leaves are used ot make a juice that helps combat cholera Cucumber leaves can also be used to prepare juice, which may be mixed with tender coconut water. When it comes to cholera, around just 4 gm of cloves and 3000 ml of water should be boiled together such that 50 per cent finally evaporates. With rough chaff one used the powdered root in order to treat cholera.
