Bhavesh began to fall ill soon after his uncle died. His own father had died when he was an infantand his uncle was a like father to him. Even more traumatic was the fact that the boy saw his uncle collapse and die before his very eyes. This sent him into shock and his young mind could not absorb the double tragedy.

But Bhavesh’s troubles weren’t over yet. He had been showing remarkable improvementbut a couple of months later, his grandmother scolded him severely. Thesensitive child, still reeling from his uncle’s death, regressed once more.This time, he began bleeding from his nose and he fainted.
Bhavesh was admitted to hospital once again, where doctors detected that his blood pressurewas dangerously high and he was suffering from HIV. What his mother hadn’t toldme was that her husband had tested HIV positive and that Bhavesh was also atrisk.
Back in hospital, the child was pumped with strong allopathic medication once more,this time for HIV. A few weeks later, when he showed no improvement, thedoctors told his mother that they had given up hope.
When theycame to me his body was swollen once more; his blood pressure had shot up andhe was very, sick.
It was along road after that. I advised the child’s mother to stop all allopathicmedicines as they were not helping and were instead further suppressing thedisease process that was fast advancing and ravaging his body. In fact, thechild was at an advanced stage of illness and if the disease process was notreversed soon, his life would indeed be in peril.
His mother cooperated. In just 17 months, Bhavesh, now eight, was a normal and happy childonce again. We had reversed his renal artery stenosis, normalised his bloodpressure and there was no sign of HIV. The family did not get a CD4 count doneas they could not afford it.
Conclusion: This case is an example of how homeopathic remedies work on the genetic constitution. It is a complete cure, a reversal of the whole destructive process in the body; and an improvement mentally and in his perceptions, sensitivity and tolerance.
