Pune, (India) Jul 31 : City-based Homeopathy specialist Dr Pradeep Sethiya today advocated the use of this alternate medicine for treatment of patients affected by H1N1 influenza Speaking to UNI, Dr Sethiya, the principal of Dhondu Mama Sathe Homeopathy College, said homeopathy could be a good option, especially for the minor students, who have been affected by this virus in the city.

He said Oxford of East, as this city is known, is grappling with this problem since the last few weeks and its students are the most affected forcing the authorities to close down many schools, which can have an impact on their education. However, he felt, that Homeopathy could be the sweet remedy for them. Dr Sethiya also demanded that government should allow homeopathy practitioners to treat the patients of swine flu, which is not just another option but also cost-effective and easy to use medicine.

Dr Sethiya, while expressing his confidence in this alternate medicine, said the most important misconception of this flu is fear, which is very strong among people. There is a need to create awareness and guide people in a proper way about this virus as this virus spreads very fast and the children are the most vulnerable to it, he said.

He also advocated to take the help of Genus Epidemics, which can be helpful if given to the unaffected people to develop anti-body, which would protect that person if he comes into contact with the affected person. He appealed to the parents to come together and fight the virus without fear and face the situation with courage. ''Medicines like homeopathy can help you at every stage.

There is no readymade medicine for such viruses but the doctors have to understand the case of the patients and the symptoms before prescribing the medicines,'' Dr Sethiya said. from Homeopathy World Community.
