There is no shortcut for curing chronic diseases. If there was one, the disease would not have become chronic in the first place.
Syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) initially causing ulceration of skin and mucus membrane and then spread systemically damaging the vital organs.
Syphilis is caused by Treponema palladium bacterium that is transmitted by sexual contact from an infected person or from mother to unborn child.
The initial infection causes an ulcer at the site of infection. The bacteria, however, move throughout the body, damaging many organs over time.
The course of disease can be divided into four stages –
Ulcer also called as chancre appears within 1 to 10 weeks after infection on the genital area, lips or tongue. At this stage syphilis is highly contagious. The chancre will disappear after few weeks whether or not a person is treated. In most of untreated cases the infection will continue and become a chronic condition.
A skin rash, with brown sores about the size of a penny often marks this chronic stage of syphilis. The rash appears anywhere from 3 to 6 weeks after the chancre appears. While the rash may cover the whole body or appear only in a few areas, it is almost always on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. Syphilis is active and contagious at this stage and spreads through physical contact (sexual and non-sexual) with the broken skin of an infected person.
Mild fever, hair loss and enlarged lymph nodes may be observed.
The rash takes few months to heal and then relapse after some time. The secondary stage of syphilis continues for 1 to 2 years.
There are no signs and symptoms of syphilis at this stage.
The disease spreads to vital organs or deeper tissues causing extensive damage to heart, eyes, nervous system, bones and joints. Syphilis at this stage can cause mental illness, blindness, other neurological problems, heart disease and death.
HIV/ AIDS risk increases with Syphilis
Antibiotics are effective in primary stage of syphilis but in late/ tertiary syphilis damage already done to the body organs cannot be reversed.
The disease is not cured in most of the cases even after use of antibiotics, but pushed inside the patient and in the process takes on new forms of manifestation, eventually breaking out in the form of violent and destructive behaviors.
Homeopathic remedies can be used effectively to eradicate the miasmatic tendency that is usually left from primary infection, even if the patient is treated before the disease progresses to the secondary and tertiary stages.
