According to Natural News fever kills viruses. An article on Natural News states, “Ever since the turn of the 20th century, using drugs to lower fevers has been standard operating procedure for most allopathic medicine practitioners. Take two aspirins and call me in the morning was a common medical humor gag throughout the 1950’s.”
The article later continues, “Aspirin type medications may be needed for pain reduction, but when it comes to reducing fever from influenza of any type, taking an over the counter drug to reduce fever is not the way to go. Suppressing fevers can increase rapid viral replication, resulting in a berserk effort by an overwhelmed immune system to fight back. This is known as a cytokine storm, which can have disastrous results.”
Any attempt to reduce fever during a viral influenza attack may accelerate the virus’s rapid replication and produce viral pneumonia or worse. Of course, use common sense if your fever gets completely out of control and see a doctor.
