What about the assistance of fever?

When confronted by some organisms, macrophages produce a substance called interleukin-1, which triggers fever.  Once released by the macrophage, the interleukin-1 travels through the bloodstream to the tiny portion of the brain that controls body temperature — a small cluster of neurons deep within the hypothalamus. 

The innate intelligence of the body through this chemical prompts the temperature regulator to set a new body temperature.

Amazing isn’t it?
