Viral Infections are among the most common and persistent health problems across cultures and age groups.


A virus is a small infectious organism, that HAS to attach itself to another living organism to reproduce.

Viruses are transmitted in a variety of ways. Some are swallowed, some are inhaled, and some are transmitted by the bites of insects and other parasites (for example, mosquitoes and ticks)

Viruses usually infect one particular type of cell. For example, cold viruses infect only cells of the upper respiratory tract. Additionally, most viruses infect only a few species of plants or animals; some infect only people.

Probably the most common viral infections are those of the nose, throat, and airways. These infections include sore throat, sinusitis, the common cold, and influenza. Doctors often refer to these as upper respiratory infections (URIs). In small children, viruses also commonly cause croup and inflammation of the windpipe (laryngitis) or other airways deeper inside the lungs (bronchiolitis, bronchitis

The body has a number of defenses against viruses. Physical barriers, such as the skin, discourage easy entry.

Viral infections such as common cold, influenza, measles, chickenpox, mumps, viral hepatitis (jaundice), viral meningitis etc. are very well treated with homoeopathy.

Allopathic system has no curative treatment for viral diseases except infusing antibiotics under the pretext of preventing secondary bacterial infection.
