Natural Remedies for Fever in Adults

Fevers are the body’s response to accumulated toxins; they are a barometer as to what is going on inside our body. It is our vital force’s attempt to heal the body. One may experience heat or even chills. Generating the ability to kill bacteria and viruses to facilitate elimination through perspiration, a fever is considered 100 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, with some fluctuation. To do this, blood flow to the skin and the heart rate are increased to create better circulation, and then elimination is improved.

Disease organisms (viruses from flu or cold) are garbage men just trying to do their job. Help them by facilitating heat and sweating. Then they multiply the work force and the job is done quicker. Hydrotherapy, homeopathy, cell salts, and herbs can help this.

Prevention is always your best option.  Following healthy diet and lifestyle habits does that. A poor diet increases mucus production in the body. Mucus is produced in response to a toxin build – up in the body. Toxins are produced by poor digestion, but more importantly by mucus – producing foods such as dairy products, fast foods, processed foods, tobacco, alcohol, coffee, and soda pop, to mention a few.

REMEMBER, WHEN IN DOUBT, SEE A DOCTOR!

Modern medicine uses medications to treat fever. These medications can adversely affect the liver while the cause still goes unattended. To reduce the fever artificially only causes toxicity to go deeper into the tissues. Antibiotics are a temporary fix that leaves the dead bacteria as a toxic refuse

Use Zinc (50 – 100mg a day) as a supplement to strengthen the immune system to remove toxins that may cause fevers.

 

Herbs for Fever in Adults

Herbs are plants valued for their specific strengthening/ tonifying properties.

The following herbs are directed toward inducing perspiration. Diaphoretic herbs induce perspiration; they enter the circulation and throw off toxins by the sweat glands and stimulate the local nerve fibers to increase their action. They influence the peripheral sensory nerves, which relax and dilate the superficial capillaries and vessels, which aide increased blood flow. They stimulate the sweat glands indirectly by stimulating the cells in the central nervous system from which the sweat glands are influenced.

Hot water, alone, is a diaphoretic. Hot baths are diaphoretic. Diaphoresis is used for pneumonia, pleurisy, peritonitis, and inflammation of the stomach, spleen, bowels, kidneys, bladder, uterus, or brain.

Diaphoretics need to be taken as a hot tea, or capsules with hot water or they may only act as diuretics for the kidneys. Always use warm drinks, but not to the exhaustion of the body.

Choose 2 or 3 herbs taken together (1 teaspoon) of the dry combination; steep for 10 minutes in boiled water, drink while very warm.

Diaphoretic herbs include:

Yarrow – diaphoretic, liver, diuretic
Chamomile – diaphoretic, digestive, nerves
Pleurisy root – diaphoretic, lungs, nervine
Boneset – diaphoretic, nerves, fevers
Blessed Thistle – diaphoretic, hormones, liver
Thyme – diaphoretic, respiratory, nervine, infection
Hyssop – diaphoretic, respiratory, high blood pressure
Garden Sage – diaphoretic, perspiration, drying
Catnip – diaphoretic, nervine
Spearmint – diaphoretic, digestive, nervine

Children’s Natural Fever Remedies

A rise in body temperature above 99° Fahrenheit constitutes a fever. Symptoms may include tiredness, weakness, heat of the forehead, and chills. Causes of fever include toxicity, or the flu or a cold, and may be commonly connected with ear infections. The thyroid, pituitary, and hypothalamus malfunction can also contribute to body temperature. The child’s diet may also be the cause of fever.

From the medical perspective, fever is an inappropriate response of the immune system and is treated with antibiotics, cold baths, and cold wet towels. While these may temporarily drop the temperature, they don’t solve the underlying problems. The most common medical solution is to administer Tylenol® which may damage the liver and cause overdosing in children due to the sweet flavorful taste.

From the natural perspective, fevers are the body’s response to accumulated toxins. They are a barometer as to what is going on inside our body. Disease organisms are garbage men just trying to do their job. Help them by facilitating the heat and sweating. Then they multiply the work force and the job is done quicker. Hydrotherapy, homeopathy, cell salts, and herbs can help this.

REMEMBER, WHEN IN DOUBT, SEE A DOCTOR!

In little children the fever can rise to 106° Fahrenheit without problems. For children with high fevers of 105°-106° use sponge baths to bring down fever a degree or two. The biggest challenge is to keep children hydrated. Children that will drink fluids are usually safe using natural methods. “Dry” fevers are dangerous as the child will not drink and this may necessitate going to the doctor.

Of course, fevers treated early are easier to manage. If you feel uncomfortable at any time or the fever is uncontrolled for more than 48 hours check with your doctor. The first thing is prevention by having a clean diet that is free of dairy, simple or refined sugars and fast foods.

 

Herbs for Children’s Fevers

Herbs are plants valued for their specific strengthening/ tonifying properties.

Using herbs for sweating will help alleviate fever. The following herbs are diaphoretic (help you sweat). They should be served very warm or hot (best served as a tea or in hot lemonade to hide the taste of the herbs). Prepare by making a tea from the herbs or using herbs by dropper full (15 – 20 drops) in the hot lemonade. Wrap the child up warm and let sweat until the fever breaks.

Catnip – diaphoretic, nerves, improves digestion, also for colic and teething
Elder flowers – also reduces tension as well as fever.
Peppermint – use the herb not the oil, improves digestion.
