Homeopath Dr. C. J. Varghese's  Response
Hello friend,
Thank you for posting your query through Healthcare magic.
I can understand your emotions and your revolting attitude to the medical team at the gamca medical centre.
You are agitated because you are not allowed to join your husband in Kuwait.
But let us sit cool and analyse the reaction of the medical team there. Then you will understand that they have sufficient reasons to say 'no' to you. The guide line about which they mention is the same guide line the conventional medical doctors everywhere in the world hold.
The scar they found in your lung field means that the infection of Tuberculosis is contained in your lung by the reactive tissues of your body. There, two factors have played important roles. One- the action of the strong antibiotics as a part of the anti tubercular treatment and two- the self defence mechanism of your body.
You have said that your multi drug resistant tuberculosis was cured with the ATT. You should not forget that the immunity of the body also played a role to contain the disease to a mere scar .
Now why do the gamca team objects you to travel? It is because even if you have now contained the disease, there is a chance to get a flare up of the disease if your immunity gets lowered due to any reason and then the disease can become active again. You ask the doctor who treated you and any conventional medial specialist about its possibility. They will agree with the gamca team.
Why I gave a detailed version about this incident is because I wish to make you to understand that the concepts of TB infection is the same here in India and also in Kuwait.
What is weird in the whole thing is the conventional medial teaching that the TB bacillus will attack people like the weird animals of Hollywood computer cinema. No. No TB bacillus will attack any human individual unconditionally. As long as the conventional medicine will frighten people like this this sort of weird guidelines will be there.
As a Homoeopath I can definitely say that you become sick first and then you get bacteria as saprophytes tuned to the particular defective constitution of your body. Only a tubercular constitution will get the TB bacillus and survive in his body.
Until and unless you make changes in the weird concepts regarding the infection and the role of the germ and host, no use revolting against such consecutive guide lines.
Hope you have become convinced why they objected you from travelling.
With Best Wishes,
Dr C. J. Varghese,
