Viral fever


Fever is considered to be an elevation in the body temperature (especially in the ear or in the mouth) that is higher than the normal limits. When the disease is caused due to virus, the fever is said to be viral. The homoeopathic treatment of viral fever focuses upon improving the resistance against the disease and not the virus or the bacterium. Therefore, any kind of lab investigations is unnecessary. After the treatment, body temperature is controlled and the immune system is motivated.

Homeopathic Treatment

In homoeopathy, the medicines are selected depending upon how the disease is started and upon the nature of the disease. Excessive thirst, shivering and sweating and associated tantrums are some of the symptoms present.
