Fever Nature’s Healing Power

intuitive thought
moments of eureka
prove insightful

back in the 18th century
Thomas Sydenham
considered fever seriously

to be a healing force
of nature
body's physiology

he proposed regulates
itself through multiple
mechanical equilibrium

adjustment feedbacks
such as rising fevers
nonmechanistic life forces

twentieth twenty-first century
evolutionary medicine concepts
identified medical symptoms

such as fever inflammation
many sickness behaviours
including morning sickness

as evolved adaptations
that function as ‘darwinian
medicatrix naturae’

defined due to selection
as process means
to protect restore or heal

observed injured infected
or physiologically
disrupted ill patient body

rather than hybrid complex advanced
systems occurring completely random
evidence indicates intelligent design
