Fever is a mechanism of the body used to fight the infection. The inflammatory response of the organism to a serious infection, which appears after the febrile period, is also a way for the body to protect itself from pathogens that, in its judgment, can damage the body.
Despite this, patients and doctors repeatedly recommend medicines such as ibuprofen, to calm the fever, thus disrupting the body’s natural mechanism to deal with an infection.
Some medical professionals recommend letting the fever act for at least the first 48 hours, as long as it does not endanger the patient, which happens when the fever is very high and the patient goes into shock.
In many cases, the use of anti-inflammatories and anti-fever medications is ineffective and in other cases fatal. Pharmaceuticals are not the solution to alleviate infections, but only a way to alleviate the annoying symptoms of being infected with a pathogen.
Fever is one of the elements that are put in place to eliminate the infection, in case it is the cause, but by itself, it does not eliminate the bacteria “, must work the natural defenses of the body, whose work is often interrupted by the human “wisdom”
The body’s responses to an infection are inflammation and high temperature.
Fever is a response of the body through which we release cytokines into the blood. Its function is to activate the defenses of the body and facilitate that these are dispersed.
Abnormal movement, although necessary to fight the infection causes vasodilation and increased temperature of the skin, because the blood circulates more slowly.
While blood circulation changes its speed to fight the infection, the central body control system loses its power momentarily, while the body temperature increases.
The causes of fever can be multiple but usually initiated by the unexpected entry of an external agent, such as a virus or bacteria.
Adverse environmental conditions, such as contamination can cause protective reactions, such as medications used to supposedly treat other medical situations.
In this group are the allergic reactions to medicines sold in pharmacies that do not require a medical prescription, or also the vaccines, which are made with mercury, formaldehyde, tissue and animal, fetal DNA and supposedly attenuated viruses.
The most important thing that can be done before an infection or suspected infection is to find out the cause of it; if it is external or internal, if it is caused by a virus or bacteria, if it is a reaction to a vaccine or a medication prescribed to treat another medical condition.
These questions should be asked before recommending any type of medical care, which is what many parents do not do. Simply, they decide to use antibiotics without knowing the reason for the high temperature, without knowing if the cause is a reaction to a medication, an allergy to a food or if it is a virus that has entered the body.
Thus, the fateful 38.5 C, should not be as worrisome as parents and medical officers make it look every time a human being, mainly a child, becomes ill and develops a fever as a reaction to their illness.
The Human body knows Best
Most of the time, the use of drugs to relieve fever or other medical conditions is precisely what causes convulsions, which are ignorantly attributed to fever or a serious state of health that does not exist.
The secret is to let the body lead with the effects of an infection on its own. Any healthy body can face and defeat an ordinary infection. Many times he does it without realizing it and without the intervention of doctors or nurses.
In many cases, however, abuse in the use of medications is a problem rather than a solution.
The intensive use of antibiotics and vaccines does not allow the body to act effectively in the solution of minor and major infections because the drugs intervene in a process that would be completely natural.
Vaccines have proven to be ineffective in the prevention of diseases and their supposed doctor, the herd immunity, has proven to be a pseudoscientific belief.
As explained here, the sense of the herd immunity theory is based on the idea that 95% of any population should be immunized against an illness in order for such vaccination to be effective. However, what is not said is that such immunization must originate from a naturally protected population, that is, from a natural resistance to a disease, and not one induced by a vaccine.
The myth known as herd immunity was adopted after proponents of compulsory vaccination said that the vaccines would offer permanent protection against diseases that, according to them, could not be treated or prevented by natural immunity.
When contracted it was demonstrated, that is, when it was seen that the vaccines did not really offer that option, then the authorities along with the proponents of the vaccines began to advocate for more doses because the “miracle” of the vaccination was losing effectiveness.
Nowadays, when a disease that was supposedly eradicated appears, health authorities immediately blame the minority of children and adults who do not get vaccinated to justify the ineffectiveness of their pharmaceutical products.
The same pseudoscience is used with antibiotics
The situation seen in the case of vaccines is repeated with antibiotics. Instead of being instruments to be used in medical emergencies, these products began to be used in response to any infection.
Worse yet, antibiotics began to be used in very high concentrations to “protect” the health of the animals that we consume as part of our diets, such as chickens and livestock. The result we already know: the viruses and bacteria developed a natural immunity to these drugs to the point that now speaks of the need to create “super antibiotics” to treat “super pathogens.”
Today, there are only a handful of diseases, such as MRSA, that cannot be treated successfully with antibiotics, due to the fact it is resistant to conventional antibiotics. Although from the discovery of penicillin, antibiotics helped stop the threat of many bacteria, the problem with its use became apparent when it began to be used as a default “solution”.
The overuse of antibiotics created the health crisis we are now living under, as pharmaceuticals can no longer fight disease because of the natural resistance they developed over the years.
As Sir Alexander Fleming warned in the mid 1900s, antibiotic overuse began an era of natural antibiotic resistance. The same is explained in this study about the antibiotic resistance crisis:
“Epidemiological studies have demonstrated a direct relationship between antibiotic consumption and the emergence and dissemination of resistant bacteria strains.10 In bacteria, genes can be inherited from relatives or can be acquired from nonrelatives on mobile genetic elements such as plasmids.9 This horizontal gene transfer (HGT) can allow antibiotic resistance to be transferred among different species of bacteria.“
As in the case of drugs to reduce fevers and vaccinations, antibiotic use must be reduced significantly to allow the human body to develop and/or strengthen its natural ability to fight disease.
The unnecessary prescription of antibiotics, as well as the extensive use of vaccines and pharmaceuticals to decrease a simple fever will make our bodies less able to fight illness and more dependent on synthetic drugs, which along the years have proven to be inneffective in providing permanent protection from disease.
