Definition:
Cholera is an acute disease and sometimes it is fatal. The main cause is wrong food and living habits. It is more dangerous than Diarrhoea.

Treatment:
Stop taking solid food as soon as the symptoms of Cholera appear.

After the first loose motion, patient should be given enema with warm water. After enema, the patient should be given warm water to drink and then steam bath. Then, patient should be given Hip bath for 15-20 minutes according to strength.

If loose motions do not stop give fomentation to the abdomen for 5 to 7 minutes. Immediately afterwards, Hip bath or Sitz bath should be given to the patient for 8 to 10 minutes.

Till the loose motions stop, the patient should be given doses of 50 gms of Sun charged water from Blue bottle at the interval of 5 to 10 minutes.

One day after the loose motions have stopped, the patient should be given fruit juice mixed with water 2 or 3 times a day. On second day and third day, he should be given fruit juice without mixing it with water. On the fourth day thin wheat mash, on the fifth day sweet juicy fruits and after that the patient should be given light and simple food.

Suggestions:
Never allow Diarrhoea to continue. During summer, do not drink too much water at a time. When hot winds are blowing, do not go in sun without drinking water. Do not eat more than necessary and whatever is eaten should be simple, fresh and easy to digest. Do not keep awake too long at night.
