You’ve Been Lied to About the Fever

They were given Motrin by their parents for fevers from the flu. What you’ll soon find out though, is that these medications are completely unnecessary, as a fever is actually beneficial.

Emergency rooms admit tens of thousands of people annually for acetaminophen poisoning. Acetaminophen is the active ingredient of Tylenol and other over the counter (OTC) similar pain and/or fever relief drugs.

We have all been conditioned to accept fever alone as worthy of medicating to make it go away. It’s time to eliminate that conditioning. Here’s your shocker for the day: Fever is your friend. Don’t kill the fever; fever kills the pathogens causing the illness. High fevers even defeat viruses.

Allow fever to help you or your child get over the infection. Up to 104 degrees Fahrenheit or 40 Centigrade/Celsius will not damage the brain, as you may have been led to believe. There are exceptions, which I’ll go into later. But first let’s go over how fever fights pathogens.

Fever is Your Infection Fighter

According to former NASA scientist and researcher, Marshall Smith, the body causes a fever above 101 degrees which stops the telomeres on the ends of the virus from allowing any viral replication. Telomeres are chromosome caps to keep chromosome threads from randomly sticking together. Marshall Smith explains the virus replication process:

“When a virus enters one of your cells, it escapes from within its own old protein surface coating and it stretches out into a long string. The viral DNA then collects millions of free amino acids floating in your salty cell fluid to make a mirror image copy of the four types of amino acids in the viral chain. This reversed mirror image chain is called Retro-deoxy-ribo Nucleic Acid or shortened to RNA.”

Once this occurs, it continues on and on. This process is called replication and it’s how a virus spreads in the body. The original virus and its many replicate copies are now free to invade your other body cells, stealing pieces of protein coatings from your damaged and dying cells, and covers the viral DNA with stolen cell wall material.

Now the virus then looks like just one of your own friendly cells and not a dangerous foreign virus. This is how it hides from the immune system’s killer cells. It’s the rise in body temperature that halts viral replication by inhibiting the DNA strand telomeres from capturing the free amino acids needed to replicate.

Marshall Smith’s message is clear and is corroborated by other health experts not influenced by the medical monopoly’s disinformation that helps sell Big Pharma’s OTC drugs. Any attempt to reduce fever during a viral influenza attack may accelerate the virus’s rapid replication and produce viral pneumonia or worse.

Invading bacteria are easier to spot as foreign cells and be killed by T-cells generated from the body’s immune reaction. Even fever under 101 degrees F or 38 degrees C fever is a sign that an anti-bacterial battle is being waged. So fever is the reaction of your immune system’s battling either bacterial or viral infections.

A Few Exceptions

One exception is a fever from heat stroke. Heat stroke may demand immediate medical attention if there is a high fever. Another high fever that should be treated is that of a cytokine storm resulting from a vaccination, which can lead to permanent brain damage and/or paralysis.

A cytokine storm is an accelerated immune system reaction often induced by vaccinations that attacks the body’s healthy cells instead of targeting viral or bacterial pathogens.

Shona Botes from NaturalNews writes:

“There are however times when medical attention should be sought for high fevers. These include fevers in children younger than 3 months, who have a fever of more than 100.4F. …  Medical attention should also be sought for children between 3 months and 3 years old, who have a fever higher than 102.2F, and for anyone who has a fever higher than 104.5F.”

Dr. Russell Blaylock, author of Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills and several other books noticed that as a hospital neurosurgeon he would observe infants having cytokine storms after vaccinations. He noticed how placing ice packs on their points of inoculation would calm them down.

    Good article. Fever is one of the internal alarms our bodies have to let us know something is wrong, but we have to keep in under control using wet towels in our front head and stomach and drink plenty of water or liquids, and let our body heals itself.
    Thank you for bringing such interesting topic for discussion.

    So what should we do when people have a fever like 39 degrees?
    Just put cold wet towel on the head and let the body heal itself? My friend needs help please.

      Hi Neo, put some cold wet towels around both calves which will draw the heat out of the head, offer water or herbal teas to drink and natural remedies like Echinacea or propolis every two hours or so. If symptoms persist visit a health practitioner.

    I am surprised that some people don't know about the benefits of the fever. I think it shows that doctors are not doing a good job at explaining the disease process to patients.. I am actually one of the unfortunate ones who don't get a fever (my immune system is on the weaker side, and my colds usually last a week or longer with no fever at all). I only get a fever when I have flu, bronchitis, or pneumonia (a good sign for me that it is a time to see a doctor :) ). On a different note, now that I take vitamin C and other healthy supplements/herbs, my colds are more rare and much shorter, but still with no fever.

    Excellent and necessary article! Fever is a healing response and should be welcomed. In 'olden days' we used to manage the fever and wrap cold wet towels round the children' calves to draw the heat out of the head to prevent convulsion which worked. I did it to my daughter when she had a high temperature, it works!

    Taking care of your health is very important. Good article!

    I’m glad my children’s doctor agrees. He alleyways said not to give Advil unless it was super high. Just rest and fluids.
