Fever is a designation that refers to the body temperature rising to levels above 37 degrees Celsius. Fever is not an illness in itself but is rather part of the immune system’s reaction towards an infection somewhere in the body. Fever should be treated with plenty of rest and liquids. Medication should be applied to treat the underlying cause of fever. Nutritional therapy, Traditional Chinese Medicine, herbal therapy and Homoeopathy may also be applied as part of the treatment.
