PREPARE TO FIGHT
What is fever?
Fever is a common manifestation of all
Fever, pyrexia or controlled hyperthermia is
when a human's body temperature goes
above the normal range of 36-37C (98-100F)
An elevated body temperature (fever) is one
of the ways our immune system attempts to
combat an infection.
Infection is the invasion of a host's bodily tissues
by disease-causing organisms their
multiplication, and the reaction of host tissues to
these organisms and their toxins .
Infections are caused by the invasion of
microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria, fungi etc.
Human beings have innate power to fight
infections by their immune system
Pre- Vedic period
In pre –vedic period, people
believed that krimies/Bhoothas
(microbes ) are the main culprit
behind infections and advocated
methods for killing them.
But evolution of Ayurveda
(complete science of life)
discovered that it is only the
secondary cause .
Ayurveda identified the
primary cause of fever as “host
Leukocytes are the chief immune
fighters in the cells which invade
the exogenous pyrogens.
Exogenous pyrogens (pathogens)
activate the endogenous
pyrogens only when the
leukocyte barrier is destroyed or
Ayurveda gives emphasis to
strengthening of the defence

When pathogens are destroyed
by the barrier (Ojus), there is no
Host defence mechanism is technically called as “
Vyadhiprathirodhitwa” in Ayurveda.
It is of three types :
Sahaja – That which is acquired from your parents .
Kalaja – That is acquired in course of time in your
life in accordance to your age and maturation.
Yuktikritha – That which is acquired by your diet
and regimen .
All these are crucial determinants of your
chance of fever- 100 times more than the
DEFENCE FIRE (OJUS)
Strong host immune responses
(physical barriers, phagocytic
cells ,complement cells etc
strongly defend the entry of
Once any microbes are in, this
“defence fire” within the
tissues gets activated and
destroy them on the spot.
It engulfs the microbes and
their toxins , destroy them and

Assessment of your immune fire
Check yourself for your immune fire .
The chief manifestation of powerful immune
response is your timely appetite .
Excellent appetite reflects excellent immune
Sudden loss of wellbeing, unexplainable tiredness
, lack of appetite and alteration in bowel movement
are the warning signals shown by an upset
immune system .
Host factors (Factors with in your body) are
quadruple times more important than the
microbial factor in making you “infected”.
The chances of your infection are extremely low:
if you maintain a very good timely appetite .
If you play out door games regularly.
If you eat very less/no junk food .
If you take appropriate immuno enhancing medicines as
per the medical advice.
If you get regular bowel movement .
What determines your chance of infection?
You need not always fall sick, just by getting
surrounded by microbes
DO YOU KNOW ??????????
You are more prone to infection when :
Your appetite is low for some unknown reason.
Your digestion and metabolism are impaired .
Your cellular drainage is blocked and excretion is slow.
Your external barriers (skin and mucous membrane ) are
You are on any immunosuppressant therapies .
Your immune system is weak.
Your natural flora in the gut is destroyed .
Why microbes are blamed ??!
Microbes could be the external initiators of fever .
They enter the body cells and release toxins to kill
The toxins could damage blood vessels.
Cause ischemic process.
Any of these could happen only in those
indiduals who have very poor host defence.
PURPOSE OF FEVER
The purpose of a fever
is to raise the body's
metabolism) enough to
kill the pathogens
Attack the pyrogens, not temperature
The outcome of fever is determined by the extent of
host defence mechanisms to eradicate the fever
Pyrogens are the cause of increased temperature
and hence they have to be destroyed at the earliest by
body’s innate immune mechanisms .
Pyrogen destruction will lead to enhancement of well
being , onset of excellent appetite , lightness in the body
and profuse sweating .
THANKS TO BODY’S INNATE INTELLIGENCE
SUPPRESSION OF TEMPERATURE
Suppression or masking of
temperature will weaken
the innate immune
mechanisms and besides
strengthen the virulence of

of infection is enhanced.
Infection can turn out to be
Bitter.. but true
Paracetamol only adjusts the

Fever treatment in Modern
Medicine targets at killing
microbes and not at patient
But fever needs fast reversal
Fever need not be prolonged to kill microbes.
Fever is protective, but extensive fever cause
dehydration and weakness .
Ayurvedic scientific treatment guidelines
advocate to kill the pyrogens by supporting
the body’s immune mechanisms .
BRILLIANT FEVER CURE
Ayurveda gives prime importance to metabolise
all pyrogens irrespective of their type .
There are specific Evidence Based Drug
therapies generally against the pyrogens and
specifically against their released toxins.
Ayurveda has brilliant clinical methodologies to
track the fever even before it manifests .
When any infective fever manifests , accurate Fever
first aid in Ayurveda eradicates it within 24- 48
Just before any infective fever
Loss of appetite .
Loss of taste .
Excessive tiredness and heaviness EVEN
AFTER REST .
Head ache and body ache.
