Every year on March 24, World Tuberculosis Day is commemorated to spread awareness about the contagious diseases and to intensify efforts to stop the global TB epidemic. Dr. Robert Koch reported the discovery of the bacteria that causes tuberculosis on this day in 1882.
Tuberculosis (TB) is a bacterial infection caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. If a person with tuberculosis coughs, speaks, or sneezes without wearing protective clothing, the splash from his lips can infect others. ‘Invest to End TB. Save Lives.’ is the topic of World TB Day 2022, and it emphasises the critical need to put resources to scale up the battle against TB and meet global leaders’ pledges to end TB.
What is Tuberculosis?
Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease caused by a bacterium known as Mycobacterium tuberculosis. If a person has TB and that person coughs, speaks or sneezes without any protection, then the splash from his mouth can infect another person as well.
The Nutrient products for Tuberculosis Patients
People with a weakened immune system are more susceptible to getting tuberculosis, thus diet is very crucial. If you have tuberculosis, boost your vitamin D, E, C, A, B complex, selenium, zinc, folic acid, and calcium intake, especially with protein. Because the body requires more nutrition when sick, eat in small increments rather than all at once. Be certain to consume these fruits and veggies mentioned below :
- Patients with tuberculosis should eat fruits high in vitamins A, E, and C. Fruits including lemon, amla, orange, mango, and guava include a variety of vitamins and nutrients that are good to these people.
- If you have TB, you should stop drinking tea and coffee and start drinking green tea instead. This is an extremely efficient treatment for tuberculosis. It works by removing impurities from the body.
- Garlic should also be consumed by TB patients. Diabetes, hypertension, and tuberculosis can all be cured by chewing two or three garlic cloves everyday in the morning. Garlic’s allicin ingredient has a significant impact on tuberculosis bacteria.
