Fever
By Steven Horne, RH (AHG) & Kimberly Balas, ND


There are many herbs that can help when fevers are present. Fevers will usually go down once the bowel has been opened with an enema, especially in young children. Catnip or garlic tea can be used as an enema solution to help bring down the fever.

Herbs that promote perspiration can also be used to bring down fevers when taken as warm teas, or as extracts taken with warm water. Some of the herbs that have proven useful here include yarrow, peppermint, chamomile, catnip and capsicum. Yarrow is particularly helpful for serious fevers when taken in the form of a hot tea.

Boneset is a good herb for fever associated with the flu where the bones ache. (It is an ingredient in ALJ.)
IF-C is a good formula for fevers, or for fevers that alternate with chills. High Potency Garlic is another product that can help with fewers, especially when caused by bacterial infection or respiratory infection. Herbs that promote perspiration can also be used to bring down fevers when taken as warm teas, or as extracts taken with warm water.

Essential Oils can be used topically. Dilute them in water, then moisten a wash cloth with the aromatic water and gently sponge off the fevered person.
