Haemophilia refers to a disease, which is characterized by blood that does not coagulate. This condition may cause bleeding that is very difficult to stop. The most frequently occurring form of haemophilia tends to affect males rather than women. Haemophilia is often genetically inherited and is caused by low coagulating capacity or simply coagulating incapacity. Patients with haemophilia may experience bleeding and bruising, which are the two salient characteristics of haemophilia. Internal bleeding may also appear commonly. Haemophilia is treated with replacement therapy. This process involves the replacement of the coagulating factors that are either absent or insufficiently low in the patient’s body. Medication, self-hypnosis, herbal medicine, and Homoeopathy may also be applied as part of the treatment.
