Here are few things you must avoid when you have fever
According to Ayurveda Jwara as a disease is originating because of the impairment of digestive fire
(no hunger,No thirst & tastelessness)
While in jwara there will be blocked body channels, hence due to blockage of sebaceous gland there won’t be enough of sweating, also blockage affects normal bowel habits and create constipation; thus there will be increased temperature
weakens the digestive fire and increases the kapha in the body, this causes heaviness in the body & indigestion.
as the digestive fire is very weak, the body can’t digest the food properly and may end up in indigestion and body producing toxins (called ama).
Bath & oil massage
these both are contraindicated in the presence of ama. As there is a blockage to sebaceous glands, anything we pour over the blockage can increase the internal temperature.
makes the person more weak as it affects tissue metabolism and decreases the ojus ( body strength ).
Exposure to excess wind will again weaken your system and increases the vata dosha, which causes increase in dryness and body pain.
is mainly because of pitta dosha and is the fundamental dosha involved in all types of fever. Anger increases pitta and fever. Thus we become emotionally weak, that is why always we crave support while in fever
should be avoided because fever is indicating your body needs rest and ignoring such sign can end up in many other unhealthy conditions.
Kashaya Rasa – anything which is astringent in taste should be avoided, as it can increase the blockage of body channels and increase vata which can hasten the fever.
Look for these below signs and till then you avoid all those above.
