Fever and Flu

According to Ayurveda, the generator of the bodily temperature is located in the forehead.In Ayurveda, a disturbance to the regulation of body temperature is called jwara, which is correlated to the medical concept of fever.  In most cases fever relates to a situation of diminished heat inside the gastrointestinal tract (i.e. the amasaya), and a high peripheral temperature.  According to Ayurveda, fever can either be a disease or a symptom of another disease.  Fever as a disease is classified into eight categories: Vata, Pitta, Kapha, Vata-Pitta, Vata-Kapha, Pitta-Kapha, Vata-Pitta-Kapha, and Aghantuja.  Fever as a symptom is found in infectious diseases or diseases classified within the character of Pitta.
