Homeopathy Medicine for Scurvy

316

Anemia, mental depression, spongy gums, and a propensity to bleed are all features of this constitutional disease, which is characterized by extreme debility.

Causes

Scurvy is brought on by a lack of vitamin C, which humans are unable to produce on their own.

Inadequate vitamin C intake prevents the body from producing collagen, which causes the deterioration of body tissues. It also aids in the body’s ability to absorb iron, which is necessary for the production of collagen and the prevention of anemia. Vitamin C also regulates a number of other vital processes, including body development, cellular activity, and the production of hormones and tissues.

Additional factors that can lead to the development of scurvy include drug or alcohol dependence, mental health issues like schizophrenia, depression, nausea, poor diet, loss of appetite, smoking, being pregnant or nursing, and other conditions.

Scurvy in Infants

Scurvy is more common in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and in infants, there may be a variety of symptoms that can aid in scurvy detection, such as:

  • High fever
  • Diarrhea
  • Irritability
  • Loss of appetite

Diagnosis

When the symptoms are described to the physician, scurvy can be quickly identified by him or her, and the presence of the disease can also be determined by a quick blood test that measures vitamin C levels.

Consumption of Vitamin C Per Day:

Below is the daily requirement for vitamin C, which must be consumed in order to avoid scurvy and maintain good health.

Men over the age of 18 should consume 90 milligrams of vitamin C every day, while women over the age of 18 should consume 75 milligrams, pregnant women over the age of 18, 85 milligrams, and nursing women over the age of 18, 120 milligrams.

Sources of Vitamin C:

The best sources of vitamin C in nature are generally regarded to be fruits and vegetables.

Vitamin C is found in foods such as oranges, kiwis, grapes, lemons, strawberries, sprouts, tomatoes, asparagus, and cabbage. It is best to eat these foods raw because cooking them can destroy their nutrients. If you prefer your vegetables cooked, steaming is preferable to boiling.
