Fever is a sign of ama (toxins) moving in the circulatory system. Contrary to what some people believe, fever is not often a sign of infection. In some cases there is infection, but most of the time the fever is due to tox?icity in the rasa dhatu, the body's basic vital tissue. When the ama has been eliminated, the fever will subside.
There is an old saying, "Feed a cold and starve a fever," and truly the first treatment recommended by Ayurveda for a fever is to observe a fast. For acute fever, a total fast is recommended if the person is strong enough. If the person is debilitated or weak, it is better to drink water, some kind of fruit juice, or one of the herbal teas sug?gested below, such as holy basil (tulsi) or lemongrass. Don't drink milk; it will worsen the fever and create diarrhea. In addition to fasting, the following rec?ommendations will be helpful.
