Ayurveda in Fighting Viral Fever and Boosting Your Immunity: Natural Solutions for a Speedy Recovery
Viral fever has become increasingly prevalent in recent times, with infections easily spreading from person to person. This type of fever weakens the immune system, allowing the infection to multiply rapidly within the body. In the face of this seasonal onslaught of illnesses, exploring the Ayurvedic approach to managing fever is worthwhile.
According to Ayurveda, fever occurs due to an imbalance of the pitta (fire), vata (air), and Kapha (phlegm) energies within the body. Factors such as stress, lifestyle disorders, and improper nutrition can contribute to this imbalance, resulting in a dysfunctional digestive system. As a consequence, toxins accumulate and spread throughout the body, further exacerbating the condition when coupled with a viral or bacterial infection.
The Ayurvedic Approach to Viral Fever:
Ayurveda recognizes low-grade fevers as healing processes that aid in the elimination of toxins from the body. However, high fevers require treatment aimed at reducing the strain on the digestive system through light diets and specific herbs.
Normal body temperature for adults typically ranges between 97°F (36°C) and 99°F (37.2°C) or slightly higher, with an average body temperature of 98.6°F (37°C). Individual body temperatures can fluctuate depending on activity levels and the time of day. It’s worth noting that older adults generally have slightly lower body temperatures than younger individuals.

Ayurvedic Perspective on Viral Fever and Infections:
According to Ayurveda, every individual possesses three doshas—Vata, Pitta, and Kapha—which, when imbalanced, can lead to illnesses.
Fever, known as Jwara Roga in Ayurveda, is primarily caused by an imbalance in the Vata and Kapha doshas. Imbalances in Kapha can result in cold-like symptoms, while an excess of Vata often reduces the digestive fire, leading to chills, fatigue, weak digestion, and body pains.
In Ayurveda, every disease originates from Ama, which refers to digestive toxins. These toxins disrupt the balance of Dhatus (bodily tissues), weakening the body’s innate immunity (Ojas) and making it more susceptible to infections and allergies.
Thus, Ayurveda focuses on balancing the Agni (digestive fire) and doshas in the body to protect against viral infections and fever.

Ayurvedic Approaches to Different Types of Fevers:
These fevers commonly occur during the monsoon season and manifest with symptoms such as a racing pulse, excessive thirst, body aches and pains, and fluctuating body temperatures. The recommended diet includes ample water intake and warm soups. Also, preparing a decoction of Sudarshan churna and Guduchi can be beneficial.

Pitta fever occurs due to an aggravated Pitta dosha and is characterized by a burning forehead, high fever, malodorous sweat, loose motions, and nausea. Preparing decoctions of kutki and chandanadi can also be helpful.
These fevers stem from an imbalance in the Kapha dosha and may present symptoms like blocked sinuses, heaviness, and congestion. To alleviate upper respiratory discomfort, consuming ample warm water and fluids is advised. Consuming a kadha made from tulsi, ginger, and pepper and avoiding Kapha-aggravating foods like curd and ghee can also be beneficial.

Ayurveda for Viral Fever: If you find yourself with a fever, it could be a sign that your body is harboring toxins (aam) that require removal. This is an important step to enhance your overall well-being by eradicating harmful substances from the root cause.
Ayurveda offers a specialized treatment called Panchakarma. Panchakarma is a detoxification and rejuvenation therapy that aims to balance the doshas (bioenergies) in the body, strengthen the immune system, and eliminate toxins. It involves a series of therapeutic procedures performed under an Ayurvedic expert’s guidance. Panchakarma treatments are not recommended for viral fever, but they can help to gain back your optimal health post-fever.
Ayushakti’s detoxification Panchkarma treatments focus on relieving the root cause of any chronic problem by cleansing, repairing and rejuvenating your body’s deeper tissues and cells. Click here to check out our Panchkarma Detoxification Plan.
