What Causes Leprosy?  This article covers the causes, signs, symptoms and treatment, along with what you can do to fight this disease. 

What Causes Leprosy?

Causes Of Leprosy:

It's easier for children to get leprosy, but only approximately 100 cases are reported in the US each year.  The bacteria which causes this condition is not easy to spread, despite all the historical fear and prejudice. 

Signs And Symptoms Of Leprosy:

Leprosy (Hanson's Disease) is an infectious disease.  Symptoms include:  Skin sores/bumps) lighter than the normal skin color.  These lesions don't heal after weeks or months and are less sensitive to touch, pain and heat. Also, there may be some numbness in hands, legs, feet and arms and muscle weakness.

Treatment Of Leprosy:

Because the disease spreads so slowly and the many treatments available, it isn't necessary to separate patients from the general population.  The doctor will prescribe antibiotic medicine to kill the bacteria and aspirin or prednisone to control inflammation. 

What You Can Do About Leprosy:

After treatment, those suffering leprosy are not contagious.  Avoid contact with untreated carriers.  There is no need for much self-help because the disease is so rare and antibiotics are commonly available.  Maybe large doses of Organic Germanium and a good vitamin/mineral supplement could help.

Complete Healing:

If you're looking for help with your health, it probably goes beyond this one issue, maybe including mind, body and spirit.  You can renew your mind and spirit with God's help.  He can heal the stuff you and 6your doctor can't control.  If you want His help, go to Healing From God.
