Recently I had fever and I must confess health is wealth! We are sometimes too used to sound body that we think our body is some kind of super-man, failing to take care of it to the fullest. But its never so, this body of ours is meant to serve us, but for it to serve us well into good health at all times, we need to also carry out our own duties to it, in a diligent and wise healthy practice.
 So fever like any other ailment causes a lot of pain, weakness and discomfort to the body. Though studies have shown that fever actually is not a disease but a resultant factor of bacteria infection in which the hypothalamus part of the brain now increase the body temperature to fight this occurrence. Fever is also a body's natural way of fighting infections or harmful body changes.
