Treatment of conjunctivitis: therapy of conjunctivitis.
(April 19, 2010) Since insufficiently treated conjunctivitis (conjunctivitis) can endanger the eyesight, a visit to the doctor should be made first. The ophthalmologist examines the affected areas and uses a smear to determine the cause. Treatment is conventional for bacterial inflammation with antibiotics, vasodilators or anti-allergic eye drops. In addition, ointments and pain relievers are prescribed. Moisturizing liquid should be instilled in the dry eye.
Treatment of an eye infection from a naturopathic point of view.
Naturopathic practitioners in the western culture prescribe internal and local preparations e.g. from medicinal plants that have a causal effect (antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral) but also relieve the symptoms (anti-inflammatory, cooling). In addition, naturopathy focuses on the activation of general self-healing powers, in particular through impulses to regulate the immune system.
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) sees eye diseases in close connection with liver function, which is particularly taken into account in the treatment. Finally, in Auyurveda, inflammation of the eyes - to put it simply - is associated with too much "heat", which has to be cooled and which is to be brought back into individual balance with other energetic qualities in the body through special treatment measures.
