Abstract

Background: In summer due to heat there may occur shortage of water so people try to get water from anywhere, even purification system is weak due to water shortage causing chance of water getting infected from various bacilli causing water borne diseases like Diarrhoea, Dysentery, Cholera, Typhoid etc. Some other factors like eating ice-creams, ice-gola, out-side unhygienic food, swimming in unclean swimming pool plays important role in development of acute diarrhoea. This study has been done in order to study role of homoeopathy in reducing duration, intensity and frequency of summer diarrhoea and arriving at a group of remedies indicated in such cases so that morbidity due to summer diarrhoea as well as general condition of the patients can be taken care of effectively ,gently in a cost-effective manner.Material And Methods: This study is a prospective, clinical, interventional study .Sample of 30 cases had been selected by simple randomized method from Bhavnagar district from Swami Vivekananda homoeopathic medical college and hospital as well as my private OPD. Result: In this study age group of 0-3 and 3-6 are found more liable to get summer diarrhoea .As far as sex distribution is concern male: female is almost same. Cold food, cold drink, ice gola, out-side food, drinking impure water and swimming are found as major causative factors . As far as miasms are concern more cases (almost 60%) are found to have psora in background. A group of remedies like Arsenicum album, Bryonia, Podophyllum ,Veratrum alb, Aloe socotrina, Croton tiglium, Camphora are Found to be effective in cases of summer diarrhoea. These remedies have found to improve almost 90% of cases by means of reducing intensity, duration and frequency of cases of acute summer diarrhoea. Conclusion: There is a better scope in Homoeopathic for the treatment of summer diarrhoea, since the treatment is based on holistic and individualistic approach. A homoeopathic remedy not only annihilates the disease but also prevents the complications associated with it. [Oza N Natl J Integr Res Med, 2020; 11(3):69-71]
