The fenugreek plant (Trigonella foenum graecum) is a great natural remedy for fever, and also for sore throat accompanied by fever. Topically, can be used for sores with pus and leg ulcers, as naturopathic doctor Sebastian Kneipp has mentioned in his works. Here is how you can use fenugreek as a natural remedy for fever.
What Is a Fever?
Before we get to the natural remedy for fever with fenugreek, know that fever is the body’s natural way to fight infection, not the problem per se. When you have a fever the body is already fighting off an infection, so the best thing to do is to support your natural immunity by drinking lots of water, drinking fresh fruit juices, and eating light meals such as steamed or boiled potatoes, plain rice, and natural vitamin C. Remember, fever is not the problems, is the body’s solution to the problem. Now let’s get to the natural remedy for fever.
Natural Remedy for Fever with Fenugreek
Fenugreek tea is a simple yet amazing way to use fenugreek to reduce fever naturally. Here is how you can prepare it at home. Steep one teaspoon of fenugreek powder in one cup of hot water. Drink 1 tablespoon of this tea every two hours or use it to gargle (especially if you also have a sore throat). In addition to being an amazing natural remedy for fever, fenugreek is also a remedy for open sores with pus.
Fenugreek acts slowly, and painlessly, but helps eliminate every last drop of pus from the wound. To use it, grind some fenugreek seeds using the coffee grinder. Pour hot water over them to obtain a paste. Make a small poultice by applying the paste to the wound. You can also use this poultice for open leg ulcers because it helps bring the infection to the surface and prevent the flash from rotting and blood from getting poisoned.
Old Natural Remedies for Fever
Herbal Tea for Fever. Thyme, linden, and chamomile tea are all amazing for lowering fever. Drink the tea as hot as possible to induce sweating. When we sweat, the body temperature naturally drops.
Apple Cider Vinegar. Massage the entire body with apple cider vinegar, then wrap the entire body in a sheet soaked in apple cider. Wrap a thick blanket around and lay down in bed completely covered for at least 1 hour. If the fever has not dropped yet, resume the process, by soaking the sheet once again in the apple vinegar. If it is more convenient, you can wrap only your feet in sheets soaked in apple cider and cold water. Keep the sheets wrapped around until your feet get warm. Then, wrap a warm blanket around your feet. If your temperature is alarmingly high, use only apple cider without water. This is a very effective natural remedy for fever.
Cold Leaves Poultices. Cover the body in cold fresh cabbage, horseradish, or greater burdock leaves. Change the leaves when they have turned hot. You can also use sheets soaked in cold milk for whole body compresses, similar to the apple cider vinegar ones. These compressed lower fever very quickly.
