Is there a bug going around (4)

As blood bathes the infected area, the throat becomes red and raw.  Meanwhile, some of the fluid in the extra blood in the infected area drains out of the capillaries and into the “Nasopharynx,” the area behind the mouth where the nose and throat join.

This fluid mixes with mucus to produce the runny nose and stuffed-up feelings usually associated with cold.  Fever increases metabolism and promotes healing by spurring the elimination of dead cells and the creation of new ones.  Fever also heat the body temperature beyond the range for viral reproduction.

All these incredible events are all under the direct control of the innate intelligence of the body using the nerve system to carry out its intent.

Amazing isn’t it?
