“[The body is] a marvelous machine … a chemical laboratory, a powerhouse. Every movement, voluntary or involuntary, full of secrets and marvels!” — Theodor Herzl

The human body is created perfectly to function at full potential. Your body is designed with survival as its primary function.

In many religions around the world it is said, the human body – is one of nature’s most complicated creations, a marvel beyond description –it works exactly perfectly, it maintains  Cells, Tissues, and Membranes | Skeletal System | Muscular System |   Nervous  System | Endocrine System | Cardiovascular System | Lymphatic System | Respiratory System | Digestive System | Urinary System | Reproductive System working together in harmony.

The  body has a  line of defense to protect him from being destroyed by an unfriendly environment. The body’s defenses are skin, mucous membranes, friendly bacteria, tear glands, lymphatic system, fighter cells, immune system and FEVER, and if this doesn’t convince you of how organized and efficient your body is, here are another 15 Most Amazing Facts About The Human Body that will prove to you that the body is far more sophisticated than you could ever imagine.

Many people think that had a high fever ends up with some sort of injury, like brain damage, hearing loss or other problems. These problems are never caused by fever. The likely explanation is that they had a serious illness that gave them a fever but it was the illness that caused the brain damage etc. The fever was only trying to help fight the infection.

It is important to understand that sometimes your body needs to fight infections using fever. A fever occurs when the body faces a threat from virus or bacteria and need to eliminate it from your system by killing it. We know that germs growing in cultures die if you turn up the temperature too much. The same is happening in your body when your brain turns up the temperature when you get sick. Getting a fever is an important part of your body’s defense against infection. “Fever is the doctor at work, not the problem”.

All the hype that western medicine has created of a fever being a  sickness or a viral infection is untrue. Understanding your body is very important, the perspective we have on our bodies today is extremely conditioned, our beliefs of nutrition good health and what is beneficial for us is driven by a very commercial motive for profit. And not what is actually in our best interests. This has today resulted in the general ill-health of society.

It’s hard to believe, but for a common fever the best remedy is REST and HYDRATION. It is important to increase fluid intake when you have a fever, since it increases evaporation of water from your body and you could get dehydrated, which then further increases the fever causing you to believe the it is out of your control.

Try this simple remedy the next time you feel feverish and start allowing your body to do what its best at.. “Healing you naturally & keeping you healthy” !!!!

Hi this is an eye opening article…its amazing how we can cure ourselves so easily unlike popping pills and feeling worse.
Had a question..is it necessary to liquidate with hot/warm fluids or cold fluids are also ok ?

Fluids

Hi Shanti,

Ideally we recommend that fluids be consumed at room temperature as it is the best. however some herbs have sweat-inducing properties that work best during fever spells. Herbal teas made from echinacea, linden flowers and elder flowers help induce perspiration, thus lowering fevers, and boost the immune system.

Are these readily available around Bombay? Could you possibly suggest where we could get some of these teas?

I would very much like to do a session with you to know more about living healthy the natural way, I have read most of your posts and am a big fan of your work, and would be very interested to know more.

Hi Maczoos.
unfortunately these teas are not available in Mumbai, you would need to research and see the closest place to you that its available at.
