The Holy Grail of Natural Remedies

You asked for it and here it is: The Holy Grail of Natural Remedies 

Firstly, fueling your body with adequate hydration, nutrition, sleep and rest are vital in healing sickness and all of these are just added bonuses!

Secondly, Fevers: It’s important to remember that fevers are the body’s natural response to sickness. When monitored correctly and left to do its job, it can not only kill off infection but strengthen the body’s immune response to illness. Fever suppressants, like Tylenol, weaken the immune system and lower the body’s ability to fight. The role of a fever is to literally kill the bacteria and viruses that are causing the system distress. Bacterial and viral proteins die off at different temperatures, bacteria at below 40°C (usually 38 – 39.5) and viruses at over 40°C, usually 40-41ºC}
