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.


Because of the fact that heat kills viruses and bacteria,  use any form you have at your fingertips in food, blankets, water, such as hot baths. Confuse the virus in your body. Curry in particular, along with hot peppers work their magic. Heat in your body when you have the flu or a cold is your army.

At the first sign of fever, Grannie or Mom would grab blankets and wrap us in them. We had to breathe the warm air and were not allowed to turn on the fan as the air whisks away the heat, which is the best defense. Drink some hot tea with lemon and honey added. Eventually, you will break out in a sweat, and this timing is very important. First, it usually means your fever has broken, but also, it means that the virus has been greatly diminished. Do not throw off your covers. Let the heat continue to battle and kill your enemy, the virus. You will probably feel rather weak and shaky as you recover from the hours of heat, but your body will recover quickly. Don’t forget your vitamin C.

If you have other conditions that are not conducive to maintaining high body temperatures be cautious and sensible.

As always, be sure to consult your physician before using any natural remedies or before changing your healthcare regimen, especially if have allergies, are currently experiencing health problems, or are taking any medication.
