Contrary to popular belief, there is no simple “normal body temperature”. A healthy person’s body temperature will vary during the day depending on their metabolism.
Body temperature is an important indication of the general condition of our organism: when we are sick our body increases its temperature to fight against specific health condition. It is always preferable to monitor every temperature fluctuation, should it be due to harmless reasons – i.e. ovulation, hormonal or emotional changes – or to some medical condition. Especially, high temperatures should never be neglected, as it alerts that our body is probably evincing some diseases. Detecting fever may reveal illness at an early stage and also its entire evolution can be monitored, which is often very important.
