Fever And Self Healing
There has been lots of discussions on
whether fever is a good or bad thing. Fever may be brought to normal by
many ways, for example, by using of cold water, or with antipyretics
drugs. There is a belief from some school of thoughts that
the feverish patient needs his temperature to increase his immunity to
help him fight the bacteria and viral infections. We need to consider
carefully if the fever is beneficial. It is
very unfortunate that many physicians or herbalists resort to
immediately reduce fever without giving deep thoughts to this question.
There are cases with typhoid fever and diphtheria that patients get
along better without bringing down the fever. Therefore, more
research is needed to understand fever so that we will be able to
tackle it correctly without harming the patients.
It is known that it is likely that fever
may trigger inflammation. When there is an inflammation, healers
and physicians will try all kinds of healing solutions to cut it short
because it is believed to be harmful. However, in the last few
decades, healers and even physicians are starting to understand more
about feverish condition. They are starting to appreciate that
fever may be Nature's reaction to defend and protect the body against
the advancement of an injurious agent, for instance some bacteria and
viral infection. The fever may help the physical body to produce
more substances to neutralize those poisons, including some bacteria
In other words, the body is an intelligent organism and may be able
produce more antibodies whenever there is a fever. Considering
this perspective, there is a school of thought that cutting short the
patient's febrile reaction with antipyretic drugs may be short sighted.
