Abstract

Recorded evidence for the secretative healing properties of fever can be discovered as early as within the Greek legends of Parmenides and Hippocrates. Thru time, this phenomenon repeatedly appeared within the published reports of such well known European physicians as Thomas Sydenham. These findings continued to gather substantiation from the numerous experiments performed during a time span extending from the end of the last century, until the advent of scientifically-oriented medical education.
