So, How can we help? Let’s check the symptoms.
Fever is one of the common symptoms associated with different types of illness.
It’s the body’s natural way to fight infection.
However, the inability to manage the increased body temperature may put the life of the affected individual at stake.
Many rely on self-medicating instead of consulting a doctor just to save money for other needs.
Luckily, there are cheaper ways to manage fever.
Here are some:
Dissolve a handful of salt to a basin of water. Soak your feet for at least 30 minutes. Make sure that you would be able to tolerate the water’s temperature.
Lukewarm water is fine but it can also affect your body temperature. So, you may recheck your temperature at least after an hour.
Salt helps in removing the toxins from your body, thereby helping the immune system.
Fever also causes the body to release water through evaporation.
Water is an essential component of the body in order to function well.
Take several sips of water the entire day to replenish its loss from the body.
Keeping our bodies always on the move increases its internal temperature. This may worsen the condition. So it’s better to limit movements. A head-to-toe mild exercise in the morning would be enough.
Thanks to nature, it has provided us with different things that we need.
Peppermint or Lavender oil can be applied on our body, especially the palms of the hands and soles of the feet.
Peppermint has a cooling effect on the body which can bring down the temperature.
Lavender oil can also help in bringing down the fever through its antimicrobial properties.
These are just some of the natural remedies that we can use.
Aside from the tips mentioned above, it would still be advisable to consult a doctor especially if and when the body temperature shoots up to 39 degrees Celsius or above. Consult the medical expert.
