Fever in Ayurveda
Ayurveda has described fever as king of diseases. In modern medicine fever is considered as a symptom of many diseases. Though fever is a symptom of cancer, rheumatic diseases, connective tissue disorders etc., in 95% cases germs are responsible for fever. Ayurveda has studied jvara (fever) in detail. In modern medicine the incubation period is described as a period between entry of germs or causative toxins and manifestation of fever. Modern medicine does not offer any treatment in incubation period.
