Ayurvedic classical texts describe in detail the treatment protocol for fevers 🔥 Did you know – the treatment program for a fever can vary from person to person?

Depending on the symptoms, the amount of digestive toxins, the prominent doshas etc, the treatment suggestions will change.

Jwara is considered the most powerful of all diseases as it afflicts the body, the senses and the mind 🧠

Jwara is commonly translated as fever which is not the correct translation. Jwara is termed all disease with a metabolic compromise associated with an increase ⬆️  in body temperature.
