    Cholera is a bacterial disease usually spread through contaminated water. Check out the article we found over at Top 10 Home Remedies on the natural remedies for cholera.

    Watery diarrhea is the most common symptom of cholera, which can lead to dehydration and serious conditions if not treated timely. Other symptoms include stomach cramps, dry mouth, dry skin, muscle cramps, nausea, vomiting, low blood pressure, exhaustion, weakness and restlessness.

    As cholera is highly contagious, you need to take proper precautions to stop the spread of the infection and consult a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment. Also, you can use a number of home remedies to help treat the symptoms and promote quick recovery.

    Here are the top home remedies for cholera.

    1. Increase Fluid Intake

    The first step in treating cholera should be rehydration. Due to diarrhea, there is a high chance of becoming dehydrated and this can worsen your condition.

    So, drink lots of water to keep your body hydrated. But not just any water, you need to drink bottled water or water purified with iodine or chlorine. To be on the safe side, boil your water before drinking it.

    Along with water, you can also drink coconut water, buttermilk, herbal tea or orange juice throughout the day.

    2. Homemade ORS

    Prompt restoration of lost fluids and salts through oral rehydration salts (ORS) can help reduce the intensity of symptoms and aid quick recovery. You can use ORS approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) that are readily available in the market. You can also make ORS at home.

    1. Mix ½ small spoon of salt and 6 small spoons of sugar in 1 liter or 4 cups of clean water.
    2. Drink this as many times as possible until you recover completely.

    3. Probiotic Yogurt

    Probiotic yogurt is also effective in curing cholera. It contains healthy bacteria that promote digestion and help fight off the bacteria causing cholera. Plus, probiotic yogurt is good for your immune system.

    • Eat 2 to 3 cups of plain probiotic yogurt daily until you get relief. You can add some banana slices to it for added benefit.
    • You can also make a tasty smoothie with yogurt and drink it several times a day for faster recovery.

    4. Ginger

    Being a natural antibiotic, ginger helps fight infection and cure cholera. It can also help get rid of diarrhea, stomach cramps and abdominal pain.

    • Grate a small piece of ginger and mix it with 1 teaspoon of honey. Eat the mixture to improve your digestive process.
    • Alternatively, you can make a ginger tea. Add thin slices of a small piece of ginger to 1 cup of water. Also add a few black peppers, holy basil leaves and mint leaves. Boil the water for a few minutes, strain and add some honey. Drink a few cups of this herbal tea daily until you see improvement.

    Note: Avoid ginger if you are taking blood thinners.
