Fevers are one of the health problems that can come during any season. Although these can occur in anyone despite of age but these mostly hit children as they tend to spike higher temperatures as compared to adults.
One can treat fever with over-the-counter drugs as per the standard procedure for a lot of parents, or one can turn to some gentler substitutes. Those who don’t have the right medications in the house to curtail a fever, or those who prefer natural solutions than medications, can still tackle a fever directly.
Here are top five natural fever remedies to try the next time you are dealing with a fever…
1. Take Baths With Warm Water
Sitting in a lukewarm bath during a fever will feel nice and cool as your internal temperature is off the scale. Moreover, taking a bath with cold water can cause blood flow to your organs, which eventually results in raising your temperature even more.
Using a sponge to rinse areas, like armpits and groin, can also prove effective in cooling you down. Besides, doctors also recommend placing cold and damp washcloths on your forehead and back of the neck to get relief from fever.
2. Drink Lots of Fluids
Health experts believe that flooding your system with water or fruit juice diluted with water can help wash out toxins, especially for children. Cutting juice with water can help to reduce the glucose levels, where bacteria mostly thrive. Nevertheless, it is recommended to use coconut water and herbal teas instead of tap water.
However, one should avoid having “sports” drinks, because they have a great deal of added additives such as sugar and chemicals. These additives can lead to cause inflammation in your body that make your recovery from the fever slower.
3. Use Cod Liver Oil
Apart from providing important immune boosting nutrients, fermented cod liver oil is suppose to naturally shorten the life of the fever. Doctors advised that capsules are more suitable for adults, while gel is very good for children who may not be able to swallow a capsule.
One can use these cod liver oil supplements daily as a way to ward off diseases to start with. Cod liver oil enables your immune system to cope with bacterial or viral infections that initiate a fever.
4. Take Proper Rest And Sleep
Keep lying on bed and taking rest when your temperature is very high, is one of the best ways to let your body handle this temporary sickness. It starts a natural cycle of healing and restoration within the body. Moreover, your body produces more white blood cells (which protect you against infections) while you’re resting, and especially when you’re getting quality sleep.
5. Try Wet Socks
One of the top methods to bring down a temperature of a fever quickly is to apply wet socks. For this, first of all place your feet in warm or hot water, then soak a thin pair of socks in cold water and wring out the excess, and lastly put them on before sleeping.
It is recommended to put a pair of dry, wool socks over the wet socks as this helps ease a fever by drawing blood to the feet, which significantly increases blood circulation. This may sounds a bit strange, but in fact this remedy has been trusted for pretty a long time.
