TB is airborne, it can be passed thru droplets in the air. You can either have "Latent TB" this is inactive TB, it isnt contagious or "Active TB" this one makes you sick, cough, weight loss, fatigue, fever, night sweats, chills. If you have Latent TB then you may need to just take one type of drug. Completing treatment is essential. The only way to cure the disease is to complete treatment. Good luck!

Start doing this pranayam, twice a day, to build up your immune system. Take one teaspoon of turmeric powder in hot water or hot milk, daily. Take any medicine prescribed by a doctor. Let me know how he feels after 4 weeks.
Build up your timing gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after one minute.
Kapalbhati pranayam -(Do it before eating) Push air forcefully out through the nose about once per second. Stomach will itself go in(contract in). The breathing in(through the nose) will happen automatically. Establish a rhythm and do for 20 to 30 minutes twice a day. Children under 15 years – do 5 to 10 minutes twice a day.
Not for pregnant women. Seriously ill people do it gently.
Anulom Vilom pranayam –
Close your right nostril with thumb and deep breath-in through left nostril  
then – close left nostril with two fingers and breath-out through right nostril  
then -keeping the left nostril closed  deep breath-in through right nostril
then - close your right nostril with thumb and breath-out through left nostril.
This is one cycle of anulom vilom.
Repeat this cycle for 15 to 30  minutes twice a day.
Children under 15 years – do 5 to 10 minutes twice a day.
You can do this before breakfast/lunch/dinner or before bedtime or in bed.Remember to take deep long breaths into the lungs.You can do this while sitting on floor or chair or lying in bed.
Continue the pranayam, once a day, after you are better.
