Wondering how to lower your fever naturally?
In today’s video you’ll learn how to control your temperature without weakening your body’s defenses!
Did you know that fever is a sign of your body’s defenses? It usually occurs when our body fights viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites that cause infectious diseases. It usually occurs with colds, sore throats, pneumonia, meningitis, etc.
Before you learn what natural remedies you can use at home for fever, it’s important to understand how the body gets into a feverish state.
Normally, our body temperature is around 37°C. This temperature also allows many invaders such as viruses and bacteria to survive. However, many of these invaders cannot survive at a temperature higher than 37°C.
Therefore, when the defense system detects the presence of these microorganisms, the body temperature increases by 2°C or 3°C. In this way, it makes the reproduction of viruses and bacteria impossible and facilitates their elimination.
Body heat is the weapon that the defense system uses to protect us from these invaders. Incredible, isn’t it? Therefore, when it comes to infectious diseases, fever is usually the medicine the body needs.
When the body temperature rises, the blood circulates faster, allowing the immune cells to quickly surround and fight the invaders.
So, since fever is an ally of the defense system, it should only be lowered when it exceeds these limits, and until then, keeping the person warm is ideal. An afternoon or evening under the covers and a little rest can be enough for the body to do its work and automatically lower the temperature.
However, there are alternatives to lower the fever without weakening the body’s defense system. A warm bath can be the first attempt. Cold compresses on the forehead, made with a towel folded three times, also help to lower the temperature without compromising the immune system.
In addition, you can also resort to a warm tea that stimulates sweating and thus lowers the fever. This is the case with ash tree tea, which not only helps to lower the fever, but also has anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties that relieve the discomfort associated with the fever.
To do this, add 50 grams of dried ash bark to 1 liter of water and boil it for 10 minutes. Filter and drink 3 to 4 cups per day until the fever goes down.
Another tea that can help is macela tea. It’s diaphoretic properties that encourage sweating, helping to regulate body temperature. Macela has an anti-inflammatory effect and increases blood flow to the surface of the skin, which promotes sweating and helps reduce fever without affecting the immune system. However, it shouldn’t be taken during pregnancy.
To make it, put 3 tablespoons of macela leaves in a container with 500 ml of boiling water, cover it and let the tea steep for about 20 minutes. Strain it and then drink 1 cup of this tea.
If your child has a fever, you should consult your pediatrician before offering any of these teas. Knowing how to lower a fever naturally is very important, especially nowadays. After all, if the recommendation is to avoid going to the hospital unless there are worrying symptoms, knowing effective methods to control temperature can solve this problem without leaving home.
Furthermore, when our immune system is strengthened, it can defend itself against a wide range of illnesses. This is true for both internal threats and external attackers.
As mentioned at the outset, fever can have other causes, although it usually indicates infection. Therefore, if this symptom is persistent, you should definitely see a doctor and have your health thoroughly checked.
