It is wrong to think that fever is a disease. We must know the concept, purpose and functions of fever.
In our life, everything is all about our life force. In Tamil, we call it as uyir… uyir sakthi…
All our physical and mental activities, all our internal and external functions, our movements, actions and everything are rooted in the energy of our life force. Our life force expresses itself through variety ways and various natures in our day to day life based on our different needs and actions.
For example, our digestive energy, energy to eliminate the wastes from the body, energies for our physical and mental activities, importantly the immunity energy which fights and protects the body from harmful things. So all our functions, movements and everything is the revelation of our life force, the superior one.
In that, we need a deep and clear understanding about our immunity energy. In short, our immunity energy is like the best doctor who cares for us, especially for us, like a loving mother and cures all our problems and diseases in a very right way.
An effective and lively immunity energy always ensures us a superior and complete relief to all our illness. whether it is chronic, acute or anything.
There is no other power than our mighty life force to cure our diseases. We have to think and realize this.
But today, unfortunately, we are destroying the power of our own immunity energy in the name of medicines. Today we have accepted things as medicines which are blunting and destroying the potential of our natural immunity energy.
take an example of fever.
An elevated body temperature (fever) is one of the ways our immune system attempts to combat an infection or a harmful behavior. Usually, the rise in body temperature helps the individual resolve an infection. This is the scientific description of fever.
So undoubtedly fever is a beneficial process for us and it is a clear sign of our raised immunity energy. I am asking why is a medicine needed for fever except for few emergency conditions.
But today there are separate pharmaceutical sections for fever medicines. Even if we want to take medicines for fever, that has to help and improve the potential of our immunity energy to fight the infections with more power.
But the medicines we are taking and giving to our kids are only giving relief from fever by reducing the elevated body temperature which is our naturally raised immunity energy for a good cause. So we must understand that the relief we are getting from fever medicines is highly unsafe for our wellness.
Because fever has a purpose. That elevated temperature has to combat and destroy the infections which are harmful to us. The fight between our immunity energy and the infections may cause us some little temporary discomforts.
Instead of taking medicines to come out of that discomforts, we need to realize the purpose of fever and have to respect that by conducting ourselves with patience and clarity.
Taking medicines for fever is not at all a good idea always. Because the purpose of fever, an essence of a disease remains inside alive.
so we must have better clarity about fever and the negative impacts caused by medicines and antibiotics for that.
As I said earlier no medicine is needed for fever condition. At the same time, we can do few things in order to support our immunity energy to fight the infections even faster.
First thing, never prefer medicine for fever
Taking complete rest (physically and mentally) is the key thing in recovering from fever in a natural way.
During fever, our body’s digestive energy will turn into immunity energy to boost the power to counter the infections strongly. So better to avoid food and water completely as there will be no proper appetite or thirst.
If we feel the temperature is so high in certain body parts, we can reduce the heat by placing wet clothes in the warmer parts for a while.
After the temperature gets little low we may get a small feel of thirst, that time we can have a sip of water. we should not drink much water without proper thirst. just a sip of water is enough that time.
Followed by the proper thirst, we may feel little appetite and that’s the sign of our body got relieved from the fever in a proper manner. Then we can start to eat simple foods like cereals, soups etc., After that we can have regular foods without much spice.
Taking complete rest without having food and water is the key thing in the recovery process of fever. So these are the right ways to get cured of that naturally. We must always understand that fever is a stronghold for our wellness and during fever have to remain patience and peace with high clarity. This is the secret of natural wellbeing.
Our bio-energy should spread all the parts of our body without any tightening or obstacles, like how the wind spread over the world with easy and natural manner.
Our heart, small intestine, spleen, stomach, lungs, large intestine, kidneys, urinary bladder, liver and gall bladder are our important inner organs, which are being the control centers of our bio-energy system.
In that our kidney and urinary bladder’s energies are managing and influencing the important body parts of ours. The entire rear side ranging from nape of the neck, spinal cord, lower back areas, thighs, knees, hind legs, heels, and foot are managed by the kidney and urinary bladder’s energy.
Acupuncture science explains the theories about our energy body in a very clear manner. If you see the picture, you can find that the energy meridians of urinary bladder spread all over the rear side of our body.
So we must understand that the kidney and urinary bladder’s deficient energy flow through its energy paths or meridians is the root-cause for neck pains, spinal cord, and lower back problems, back pains, knee pains, nerve related issues like varicose veins, heel pains etc.,
People who are using belts for their neck and back pains should clearly understand this concept and have to look for a permanent and natural solution for their problems instead of wearing belts as a temporary relief.
Finding the root cause and solving that will be the right approach to get a permanent settlement for every problem or disease. Looking for a temporary solution by focusing only on the effects of a disease cannot be a secured and intellectual approach. The pent-in root cause will intensify its essence and always look forward to exhausting that from the body through many ways which we call it as waste elimination and that might cause us new discomforts. So we must aware that, unknowingly we are only creating the basic reasons of a new disease.
Particularly wearing belts for back and neck pains will cause an unnecessary tightening and obstacles in the urinary bladder’s energy meridian which may disturb the organ’s natural functionality and also affect the self-healing ability of our body.
We may be heard a common advice that we should not wear tight clothes, especially tight inner wears. The reason behind this is all about our body’s energy flow. So we should not disturb our bio energy’s natural and easy flow by wearing tight dresses.
Today we can see many youngsters wearing tighter dresses like jeans and other fashion bands in their wrists. These things may cause many health issues silently.
Once again I am insisting that wearing belts for neck and back pains is only a temporary solution. So we should look for a permanent and natural solution for those problems.
Instead of addressing the root causes of a disease, the modern medicine has habituated us to get satisfied and settled with only the temporary solutions.
Suggesting to wear spectacle for eyesight issues, recommending to wear belts or to undergo surgeries for back and neck pains, prescribing lifetime medicinal intakes for diabetic and thyroid conditions, suggesting organ removal instead of curing that are few examples of that.
Finally, we have to think and find an ideal way to get cured of our illness. As an acupuncturist, I strongly recommend ‘Indian classical acupuncture’ treatment to get root cause cure for all physical and mental illness.
