Contrary to what you may believe based upon what you may have been told, a fever is not sickness, but healing!
A fever is the body’s attempt to heal itself using heat for purposes of elimination via perspiration. A fever uses the body’s skin and the function of perspiration to eliminate toxins from the body via the skin.
Medically speaking, a fever is elevation of body temperature. The natural human body temperature is 98.6 degrees. A body temperature over 100.4 is considered pathological, medically speaking.
We should welcome a fever with open arms! The problem most of us make is that when a fever is present we automatically assume something is wrong and run to the butcher’s office, oops, I mean “doctor’s office.”
And what does the good ole doctor give us? Answer: POISON (euphemistically called “drugs” or “medicine.”) And what does this poison (drug, medicine) do? Answer: STOPS THE FEVER! To stop a fever is to stop the healing.
You never want to interfere with or work against a fever. It is much wiser to work with a fever and not against it. To work against a fever is to unwisely work against Nature and the Body Intelligence. Working against Nature and the Body Intelligence is gradual suicide because to work against Nature and the Body Intelligence is to work against self which is clearly unwise.
Suppressing a fever means to keep the toxins in the body. Toxins do not belong in the body. This is why you have an eliminative system consisting of eliminative organs such as the colon, kidneys, lungs, and liver. The skin and female vagina also serve as eliminative channels, so the body will also use the skin and vagina for healing purposes (but folks will also mistake vaginal and skin healing crisis as disease and sickness too and run to the doctor for some poison to stop the healing via these organs).
You really don’t have to do anything when a fever is present except for get some rest and drink some water. Remember, your body (Body Intelligence) is in charge.
Most fevers bring with them a natural fasting period which is why the appetite usually disappears when a fever is on the scene.
You can work with a fever naturally when you have the right knowledge. You want to help a fever to break naturally, not stop it (though a fever needs no help in breaking). Basically, with the right knowledge you can expedite a fever.
Cool baths are ideal when fever is present. Always bathe in cool to lukewarm water. Add a box of sea salt as sea salt helps to dissolve negative energy (which is released when the body is cleansing).
You can add essential oils of Peppermint and/or Ginger to the bath to facilitate the fever. Whole Ginger root or tea bags of Ginger root can also be added to the bath. Ginger is the best thing you can use to facilitate a fever.
You can also take a warm to hot bath as well which will expedite the breaking of a fever due to the heat involved. It’s still a good idea to add Ginger root to the bath.
An ice pack or cold towel can be applied to the head during a fever.
Good herbs to take (in tea form) include Ginger root, Cayenne, Cinnamon, and Cloves. All of these herbs induce perspiration. They are also warming yet cooling herbs. They first warm you up before cooling you down.
When a fever is present, make sure to sleep with the window open so the natural cool breeze of the night can enter into the window and help cool you down.
Should you wear a lot of thick clothing to bed so as to help induce heat so as to break the fever? Answer: you can if you choose to. Or, you can let it break on its own. It’s really up to you as all methods help. Whether you naturally cool the body down or warm it up, you are working with the fever and not against it.
The worst thing a person can do for a fever is to take medication that will stop the fever. Stopping a fever only sets you up to have the fever return at a later time. A fever simply denotes healing and healing should never be put off or delayed nor should it be interfered with. A fever naturally breaks at 104 or 105 degrees if you don’t interfere with it by prematurely stopping it.
Metaphysically speaking, a fever denotes anger. Anger causes heat and heat is present during a fever; this is why the body temperature rises.
Therefore, learn to “chill” out and not “sweat” things that make you “boil” emotionally. Don’t let things in life get you “heated.” Like the title of a book says: ‘Don’t sweat the small things in life.” I might add, don’t even sweat the moderate size or big things either. At the end of the day, when you keep things positive, everything always work out for the good anyway. It all boils down to a choice and there’s a right choice and a wrong choice. That’s it! Just a CHOICE! Like what was said in the Jim Carey movie “The Number 23,” There’s no pre-ordained destiny or fate, only choices.
Choices means life is in your hands. While you may like to hand this over to a God figure (thanks to successful religious programming and indoctrination), the reality is, you create and make your own destiny and fate by way of the choices you make predicated upon the thoughts you think.
Responsible spiritually conscious and mature people know their lives are in their own hands and irresponsible and spiritually unconscious and immature people (a/k/a religious people, the common folk) believe their lives are exclusively in some God’s hand and that they have absolutely no say so or power over their lives. They believe their fate is sealed and there’s nothing that can be done about it.
Your life is what you make of it! Your thoughts, beliefs, emotions (feelings), and attitude (good or bad) shape and create your destiny, fate, and reality and this has always been the simple secret of the Universe and always will be.
