Remedy for Fever

FEVERS

Fever is the abnormal rise in temperature of the human body. Normal temperature ranges from between 36.7.C to 37.2.C above 37.8 is abnormal.

First determine the cause of the fever, and then give treatment accordingly. Fever accompanies many diseases such as flu, pneumonia, typhoid, diphtheria, mumps, heat exhaustion, chickenpox, measles, malaria, certain tumors etc.

It is therefore of utmost importance to look for a cause. Treatment should not be initiated without understanding this.

If the temperature threatens to rise beyond 40.C apply a cold compress by soaking a towel in a mixture of water and a little vinegar and applying it to the forehead. Despite this, if the fever continues to rise and reaches 40C, start emergency procedures immediately. Remove the clothes of the patient and wrap him in a cotton sheet soaked in cold tap water. Alternatively bath him in cold water while fanning him at the same time until the temperature falls to at least 37C.

Try any of the following remedies:

  1. Boil 5-6 leaves of neem (azadirachta indica: margosa: syringa) in a cup of water. When the water has turned light green add a pinch of fine black pepper and drink.
  2. Add a pinch of saffron to a little water and drink. Do this regularly.
  3. Apricot juice mixed with honey is excellent in treating fevers.
  4. Drinking grapefruit juice regularly removes the burning sensation felt in fever. Pomegranate juice is also very useful as it allays thirst in fevers associated with typhus, gastric and asthmatic conditions. Add a pinch of saffron if desired.
  5. Oranges are excellent in all types of fevers such as typhoid, TB and measles. A common symptom is lack of saliva, and absence of thirst and hunger. Oranges or frsh orange juice gives energy, increase urinary output, and build resistance against possible infections.
  6. Sugarcane juice is excellent in fevers especially if there is protein loss from the body.
  7. Add the juice of one large lemon or two medium lemons to a glass of fresh coconut water. Drink fresh.
  8. Boil a handful of fenugreek leaves in two cups of water. Strain. Sweeten with honey and drink twice a day.
