Systemic symptoms include fever, chills, night sweats, appetite loss, weight loss, pallor, and often tendency to fatique very easily. Many of those who suffer from TB do so in the first few years following infection, but the bacillus may lay dormant in the body for decades. Most initial infections overcome them, they may develop fever, dry cough, and abnormalities that may be seen on a chest x-ray. TB pluritis may occur in 10% of people who have lung disease from TB. In a small amount of people with weakened immune systems TB bacteria may spread through their blood to various parts of the body. Affects TB affects the lungs and less frequently the bones, joints, kidneys, or other parts of the body. Coughing (or coughing blood) strains the blood vessels and causes your lungs to bleed. Fever affects the kidneys. Pallor affects the kidneys, lungs, and blood vessels. TB affects the heart, liver, esophagus, and the stomach through pallor. TB affects the brain which causes brain damage.

Bodily is how you physically are. Social is how you interact with people. Mental is how you think. Lastly, spirit is what you believe in & what your spirit is. Native americans believed illness is being brought from negative thoughts, you are imbalanced, or living a lifestyle that is unhealthy. Native american healing is to restore balance, meaning to bring back wholeness, to ensure health and spirituality to the ill person. They used herbal remedies and rituals that purify the body and shamanism.

Did you know that Native Americans were way more healthier and civilized than white settlers?

Colonial Remedies White settlers believed TB was called "Kings evil" because they thought the kings and queens could cure it with their touch. Many people thought TB came suddenly only to certain people.
Settlers knew that TB was contagious and easily spread. They treated the disease by isolating people from the group. History of Remedies TB is one of the greatest threats and killers known to the human race.
In the past, people were sent to sanitoriums where they would be treated with fresh air and good foods.
In the early 19th century doctors would inject air into the lung to have it collapse and heal again.
In the early 20th century doctors removed parts of the upper rib cage, this allowed the lungs to rest and heal.
In 1805 they started using x-rays.
TB is killing more than ever because people are immuned to drugs. The drugs are not working as well. Recovery Then: Glycerine extract of tubercle bacilli as a remedy for TB in 1890. The first immunization was developed by Albert Calmette & Camille Guerin by using a strain of cow TB. Sanatoria helped people kind of stay healthy.
