Regarding antibiotics or drugs for a fever: The suggestion that the intelligent human body would raise its own temperature until it caused brain damage is one of the most patently absurd contentions I have ever heard. Metabolism consists of the absorption of nutrients and the elimination of wastes (toxins). The heat is necessary to accelerate the elimination of toxins, which have accumulated beyond the body’s ability to tolerate them.
* ANOTHER QUOTE FROM A WELL KNOWN DR: “In my over thirty years of experience, I have never seen or even heard of a single person, young or old, who actually died from a fever, unless the fever patient was drugged with antibiotics. A fever is used to facilitate the elimination of toxins. In some instances the burden of a toxic drug, with its own inherent side effects adding to the already existing burden of excess toxins in the body, will injure or kill a fever patient. In other words, it’s the drugs that killed and the fever was blamed.”
”A DR’s OPINION ON WHAT YOU SHOULD DO: “Do not fear a fever. It is one of the most common and obvious means by which the intelligent body protects itself. A patient with a fever should take no drugs, eat very, very lightly (ideally, fresh fruit and juices exclusively), drink water, stay still, use cool (not cold) compresses on the forehead, chest and back of the neck, and allow the body to do what it is trying to do without interference. The fever will then accomplish its intended task and subside. This is an instance when drugs can only hurt.
Here’s an excerp from a book that discusses the Lymph system & why it’s so important to practice prevention for health & keep the Lymph system clean, which is exactly what a fever is trying to do to protect your body!
* “You must be wondering, and rightly so, why, if a clean lymph system is so important to health, it is not more widely understood. The answer is money. There’s no money in it. A clean lymph system prevents ill health before it happens. The entire health-care industry in the United States, which generates $1.3 trillion a year (that’s $3.5 billion every day, weekends included), entirely depends on treating people after they’re sick. There are no products to sell that flush the lymph system and keep it clean.”
One source of this info comes from excerps of a book called “Fit For LIfe Not Fat for Life” by Harvey Diamond who also co-authored a book called “Fit for Life” in 1983. He’s talking about the Lymph system & how there is not as much money in prevention vs the healthcare industry. He has been living a natural lifestyle since the 1970’s & is living proof that letting our bodies heal themselves & prevention is the way to go.
