Ayurveda is serving the humankind from thousands of years and we are depending on its beneficial approaches towards many diseases. Septicemia is a disease which effecting a large number of people worldwide. It is one of the major causes of death worldwide. In Ayurveda, there are many drugs and herbs mentioned by the ancient sages for prevention of such diseases. As prevention is, better than cure so the use of certain herbs and drugs by targeted population or individuals can prevent the risk of Septicemia.
Septicemia is nothing but the entrance of bacteria in the blood stem, it is also known as Bacteraemia or Blood Poisoning. The world is full of deadly bacteria all around and we are always in treats. Any infection that occurs in the body can turn to Septicemia if remains untreated for a long time.
Mainly the immune depressed patients are the main targets. They can be affected by any infection easily and due to poor body resistance, their body cannot create any immune defense against those microbes.
When the microbes enters in to body they are treated as a foreign body by our basic body defence units and thus a hypersensitive reaction occurs in the body and can often the reactions are so heavy that they ends with death of the diseased.
Symptoms of Septicemia:

Ayurvedic Management Of Septicemia:
''स्वस्थस्य स्वास्थ्यरक्षणं अतुरस्य विकार प्रशमनाम्चा"
Which Means “To Cure Those Who Are Diseased and To Protect the Health of Healthy Individuals by Promoting the Standards of Health”
Till today WHO is also running behind that aim (Which is similar to that only the language is different) to achieve a disease free world and promoting the normal health of world population. However, till today we are not able to get that goal. The approach towards sepsis is somehow based on it.
Ayurveda believes in such a state of health where you will not effected by any microbes and if some how you effected then your enhanced body protecting mechanism will help you in fighting battle in the manifestation of sepsis. It is often discussed that prevention is better than fighting with germs.
