A coma, sometimes also called persistent vegetative state
Symptoms of Coma
The following are some of the symptoms of Coma:
It is profound or deep state of unconsciousness. Persistent vegetative state is not brain-death. An individual in a state of coma is alive but unable to move or respond to his or her environment. Coma may occur as a complication of an underlying illness, or as a result of injuries, such as head trauma. . Individuals in such a state have lost their thinking abilities and awareness of their surroundings, but retain non-cognitive function and normal sleep patterns. Even though there is loss of higher brain functions, other key functions such as breathing and circulation remain relatively intact. Spontaneous movements may occur, and the eyes may open in response to external stimuli. Individuals may even occasionally grimace, cry, or laugh..
Homeopathic treatment for Coma
Individuals recovering from coma require close medical supervision
1. Management of immediate emergencies.
2. Preventing infections and maintaining a healthy physical state.
3. Preventing pneumonia, bedsores and providing balanced nutrition.
4. Physiotherapy to prevent contractures (permanent muscular contractions)
Treatment depends on the cause, severity, and site of neurological damage.
There can be combination of physical, intellectual, and psychological difficulties even after coming out of coma which needs special attention.
Recovery usually occurs gradually, with some acquiring more and more ability to respond. Some individuals never progress beyond very basic responses.
A coma rarely lasts more than 2 to 4 weeks. Some patients may regain a degree of awareness after persistent vegetative state. Others may remain in that state for years or even decades. The most common cause of death for someone in a persistent vegetative state is infection, such as pneumonia.
As per the underlying cause homeopathy can help patients suffering from coma.
