Fever. Is It Safe?

I am frequently asked about fevers. Especially during winter months.

In Eastern Medicine, the patient is told to minimize exposure to drafts, wind or a constant breeze away from the back of the neck and shoulders. This is an extremely vulnerable point in the body's defense systems agains a cold or flu. Yes, this includes an air-conditioner blowing air or an open window draft. Solution? Cover up! Blanket or scarf!

It's been said that when a fever reaches 102 degrees, a group of proteins called interferons are produced that help prevent viral replications and inhibit cancer cells.

And at 103 degrees, all nutrition to the spleen is shut down to starve any bad bacteria that are present or multiplying.

Add Years. Do More. Live Life.
