When our son had fever for six-days last week (10-16 May 2010), my wife kept a low profile.
If she started telling peoples we handle the nine-year old boy’s fever the natural way, they are likely to raise their eye brows.
Aren’t you aware of H1N1? Yes, we do.
Why don’t you send him to the clinic? There is no need to do so.
Aren’t you worried that his body temperature is so high that it may damage his brain as commonly believed? Yes, we do.
But, we make sure that his body temperature is below 40 degress Celcius by feeding him fruit juice, coconut water and warm water.
We aslo massage his body and legs to reduce the heat to enable him to sleep.
This is the self-healing process.
You have to do it with knowlege, confidence and patience.
It just works.
That is why since birth, this 9-year-old boy only visited the clinic once.
He will grow up a healthy man in the years to come.
This is our best gift to him and society.
