I am a Homoeopath and so I will have a different answer than that you were following so far.
Having a fever
for the last several days for your son shows that he is having an unresolved infection. For a physician of the conventional medicine, what is more important is to find out the organism that caused the infection. As a Homoeopath, my concern will be the individual patient who suffers from the disease.
Since the former has already administered medicines to reduce the symptoms of fever and infection and since he has now advised to find out the possibilities of H1N1 virus, his line of approach is very evident. Once detected the H1N1, then also he will administer an anti viral drug thinking that by killing the invading organism the patient will improve.
Since this approach is failing in your son's case, there is nothing wrong in thinking about an alternate method. I mean Homoeopathy.
For a Homoeopath, this is an acute disease. Therefore the causation is important. It can be even a psychological trauma
which reduced his resistance and made him susceptible for the infectious disease. Exertion, exposure to extreme cold
or heat, wrong or incompatible food items he has taken and a lot of other situations also can make him sick. Once the causation is detected, how he is reacting mentally and physically to the new diseased situation is important. I mean the mental disposition of the patient during the disease. His chilly or hot feeling, his thirst or thirst less , weakness, drowsiness
and an innumerable conditions shown peculiarly and individualistically by the patient during the disease will be considered by the Homoeopathic physician to select his curative remedy. Once this remedy is administered to the patient he will get cured within the earliest possible period. This will be cure without any remaining weakness or tiredness
after the treatment.
Therefore, my advise to you as a Homoeopath is to approach an expert Homoeopath at the earliest. He will help you and your son.
With best wishes for a speedy cure through Homoeopathy,
Dr. C. J. Varghese
