An acute illness is often the only possibility for the body to recover and replenish its resources.
The natural rhythm between rest and activity is often ignored in today's fast-moving world. Lack of sleep and movement robs the organism of its energy.
A "flu-like infection" is a good way to develop a curative fever, and only a healthy body is capable of it.
Almost all pathogens become inert from 38.5 °C to 39 °C and can be detected and eliminated by the body's defence cells.
The fever heat accelerates the circulation and activates the so-called "body police". Cleaning and combustion processes are supported.
Any artificial lowering of fever weakens the immune system.
