Significance of medicinal plants against typhoid fever: Possible mechanism, effectiveness and outcomes
Typhoid fever one of the most severe bacterial disease have affected millions over the decades. It usually being treated with the administration of antibiotics as well as homeopathic medicines and traditional medicines which includes several medicinal plants. Such use of antibiotics against Salmonella typhi has increased the danger of increasing resistance of it against used antibiotics and thus decreasing the chances of its treatment in future. Homeopathic medicines prepared from several medicinal plants have been reported to be very effective against the S. typhi and its variants, thus have increased the chances of its treatment. Pharmacological profile of such medicinal plants extracts is still widely unknown and need further research. Moreover, all so far used medicinal plants, required pharmacological screening for their effectiveness against the effects of S. typhi.
