Ani's Egg Whites for Fever Treatment
12/13/2005: Ani from Ontario, Canada: "Hi! I love your site and find it very useful. Thought I'd share something and you can post it if you see fit.
By far the best method to lower a high temperature within MINUTES! When I was about 4 or 5 years old, I had acquired a fever so high that I started to hallucinate. My mother was in a panic, she feared brain damage if something didn't lower the fever and FAST. My grandma told her about an old-wives' remedy.
Soak 2 cloths or hankerchiefs in egg whites and put on the soles of the feet (cover with socks).
The egg whites instantaneously start to draw the temperature DOWN from the brain (where it is dangerous) to the feet (where it can do no damage). After that incident my mom used this method successfully every time I had high temp. If no eggs are on hand, chopped onion or chopped potato can be applied to feet instead, although egg whites are the fastest method.
The egg whites are also a miracle cure for minor and more severe burns. Soak or coat affected area in egg white. While the egg white is still wet you will feel no pain from the burn. As soon as it dries up the pain comes back so reapplication is necessary. This also prevents scarring from the burn."
01/04/2006: Ani (anisyab[at]yahoo.com) from Ontario, Canada writes,'"I checked with my mom and there is a small revision if using the chopped onion alternative: the onion should be mixed with vinegar. The potato is fine on its own."
1/11/2006: Ani from Ontario, Canada writes, "I have NO idea why the egg white remedy is not more commonly known. In fact, I did a google search and aside from my post on Earth Clinic, found only one website mentioning it as a remedy for burns (for which it is in fact as effective as for lowering temps). It is a fail-safe, non-invasive, purely natural technique that works faster than any drug. I encourage everyone to try this method first, especially when young children are in question and speed is important. Glad you gave it a try Cathy."
2/11/2007: Ani from Ontario, Canada writes, "Hi, Ani again. In regards to the egg white for fever remedy I'd like to make a suggestion. I've noticed some people are writing that they use face cloths or towels to soak up the egg white and put on the feet. I doubt the remedy will be as effective if done that way. The material shouldn't be overly absorbent, my mom used old fashioned kerchiefs because they don't absorb too much themselves but are functional in that they hold on to the egg white. Seems people have had luck with using paper towels. Just make sure whatever you're using to put on the feet is completely soaked and dripping with the egg whites. You might have to use several eggs, not just one or two. When done properly this remedy is sure to work."
2/2/2008: Ani from Ontario, Canada writes: "Hi there, just checked back to see how people are doing with the egg white remedy. Glad to see it's helping a lot of people!
Quick note: the egg whites are useless once they dry up, which can be rather quickly if the temp is high. The feet get very hot and the egg whites can literally COOK! You must check and REAPPLY as many times as necessary until the temp is back to normal. Don't give up after one application, it will work but the egg whites must be WET. My mom usually reapplied once or twice but you can keep going in case of a stubborn fever"
[YEA] 11/13/2007: Jamie from Macon, GA USA: "5 year-old son had a fever of 104.8 and we were about to go to the emergency room. We googled "How to break a fever" and this site came up. What did we have to loose? So we tried it. two minutes after we did it we were at 102.8. fifteen minutes after we were at 101.5. thirty minutes after we were 100.3 and one hour after we put the egg whites on his feet his temp was normal. awsome!"
[YEA] 10/25/2007: Geoffrey from Tel Aviv, Israel: "I had been running a fever for 2 days in the upper 30's..38.5-39.5 range... I was full of chills and I now know I was on the verge of panic..Advil and Motrin were no longer working to break my fever for even 30 minutes. I quickly gathered my thoughts and searched on line for a home remedy.. Low and behold I stumbled across this remedy.. Thank Goodness.. I soaked 2 rags in the egg white solution and wrapped it around my feet, I then covered my feet in the plastic bags and lastly socks.. After about 25 minutes my fever had went from 39 degrees to 38.5 in 15 more minutes it was 37 degrees... I am still sweating a bit, but without chills and with alot more calmer feelings.. Thank you ever so much for this Remedy, I will definately be passing it on....Namaste..."
[YEA] 10/04/2007: Lucinda from louisville, ky usa: "I was so happy i cried! The egg whites remedy is soooo true! My little boy had a fever for two days. He's normally a happy little guy who's always into everything. Tired of seeing him laying around and not being himself I took to the net to find a remedy. I was kinda skeptical at first but when he climbed in my lap and fell asleep burning up from fever I thought what do I have to loose. I quickly rushed into the kitchen and soaked two towels. I wrapped his feet and even though he didn't like the feeling I just held him and told him he'll feel better soon. About two mins later the fever had dropped drastically. He said mommy...can I have some chips...I was so happy to hear him say that since he hasn't been eating! I cried when he got up from the bed and walked to the kitchen. THANK YOU!!!!!"
[YEA] 09/27/2007: Melissa from Hilo, Hawaii: "Firstly, I wanted to thank you for a wonderful and helpful website. My daughter has had a tendency to get high fevers (up to 106) since she was six months old. I have to admit, there were times when I was so scared becuase of her high fever, I broke down in tears. I know that a fever is the body's natural way of fighting off infections, however when you see 106 degrees on the thermometer, it can be very scary. Most of the time it was due to an ear infection. She just turned four and I'm starting to like the idea of natural remedies more & more. After being frustrated with giving her both Motrin and Tylenol to fight a high fever, I got on the internet and found your website. What a blessing! I found the egg whites fever reducer and tried it. It worked!! It works and it's a wonderful alternative to OTC drugs. Thank you again for sharing an awesome remedy. Blessings to you!"
[YEA] 09/25/2007: ATTI from EAST HAVEN, CT: "I HAD A RAGING FEVER, NEARING 104...I HAD BEEN SICK FOR OVER A WEEK, MY FEAR OF DOCTORS & LACK OF INSURANCE, HELD ME BACK FROM SEEKING HEALTH, BUT WHEN I TOOK MY TEMP, I KNEW I HAD TO DO SOMETHING, AS A LAST RESORT, I CRAWLED TO THE COMPUTER AND FOUND THE REMEDY WITH EGG WHITES APPLIED TO THE FEET...WITHIN 5 MINS, MY TEMP DROPPED 3 PTS. & I IMMEDIATELY FELT SOMEWHAT BETTER. THIS COMPLETELY WORLED FOR ME...ABSOLUTELY AMAZING...VERY GRATEFUL TO WHOEVER POSTED THAT, A REAL LIFE SAVER."
[YEA] 09/24/2007: Samira (Dharani) from Sugarland, Tx: "My niece was running fever for 3 continuous days 2 months ago and we tried egg remedy, it really worked. 2 days back my daughter started running fever and i kept giving her Tylenol and Motrin every 4 hour,her fever would go down to 99.9 and then come back if i won't give medicine every 4 hour. In the morning i soaked paper towel in egg and wrapped around her feet and put two socks on each feet and left it on for hours and her temperature was normal within 2 hours. Fever was gone. Usually her fever would never go down without doctor's visit. Thank you"
[YEA] 09/13/2007: Sarah from Oswego, New York: "Egg whites work! I don't know how or why, but I can attest to their efficacy. My cousin Jill called me tonight. Jill was hysterical because her two-year-old Julie was burning up with fever... 105 degrees! She lives hours out in the country, her car is busted, and even an ambulance would have taken too long to get there. She had bathed Julie in cool water which brought the temperature down to 103.5, but it was starting to climb again. I found this website and described the eggwhite cure to Jill. She tried it immediately. Within ten minutes Julie's temp. dropped from 103.5 to 101.1! When Jill had first called, Julie was absolutely silent. Ten minutes after using the egg whites, I heard her giggling and playing with her older brother. Like I said previously, I don't know how or why the egg whites work, but they saved a baby's life tonight."
[YEA] 09/08/2007: Teri from Owensboro, KY: "Are you supposed to warm the egg whites before applying to soles of feet? My niece had a fever of 103.5. She has epilepsy and her doctor has told my sister that if her fever gets above 101 and she can't get it down, she needs to take her to the hospital because it could cause her to have seizures. I was searching and found this website saying that egg whites on soles of feet was the fastest way to bring a fever down and I told my sister about it. She said she was going to try it and about 5 minutes later, she said as soon as she put the cloth soaked in egg whites on her feet, she began to have a seizure. I have been reading that it is no longer suggested that you put a child in cold water to bring down a fever because it could shock their body & actually cause their fever to spike so I was just wondering if the people who say the egg white remedy works, warmed them before apply to feet."
[YEA] 08/14/2007: Ronald from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: "I decided to search for the internet for natural solutions on how to break a fever after my youngest son fever of 39 degrees did not subside on the fourth day. He is only 1 ½ age and ibuprofen I gave did not work for him. I am a believer of natural solutions but was skeptical of this egg white in socks thingy so I continued to allow him to burn out while I apply reiki on him. It took more than a week for his fever to subside and another week to fully recover to his old self. It was extremely tiring.
Then my second son age 4 got fever and also vomited. He was feeling crap, moaning and groaning. He can't eat anything even grapes and when he ate them, he threw up afterwards. I wanted to let him burn out but I got sick too with fever. His fever was hovering between 38.5 and 39.2 degrees. After two days I decided to give the egg white a try. On 1st August 07, at 4pm I make soaking paper towels with two huge egg whites and put it on the sole wrapped with cling wrap and socks. I measured his temp at 39.1 degrees. After 10 mins it went down to 38.5 and I was ecstatic however it went back up after another 10 minutes. He was complaining of itch and being uncomfortable but I persuaded him to hang on. I wanted to give up but faith made me continue. After 40 mins there were no changes so I waited. After an hour or so, I really wanted to give up as there were no changes at all. I felt it was making him sicker but somehow instinct tells me to hang on. 1 ½ hours passed by and to my disappointment, his fever stayed at 39 degrees. 2 hours gone by and there were still no changes. So finally I told myself to let it be for another half an hour or so before cleaning him up. 15 mins later and though the fever did not subside, the strangest thing happened. He started having a bit more energy and then he ask for grapes. So I gave him green grapes and he just ate and ate. No vomit and after a total of 3 hours later, fever still have not dropped but he got up feeling much better. I allow another ½ hour before washing him up and he wanted to play computer games. He was like back to his normal self and still his fever stood at 39 degrees. Later that night, his appetite came back and started eating all sorts of food other than milk as he had no appetite for milk. Before he slept at 9.30pm, his temp stood at 38.5. He wanted milk before he slept and he worked up at 4am for milk again as he never had milk for last two days. Other than that he slept like a baby. At 8.00am next morning, his temp went down to 37.6 and at 10am he was fully back to normal 36.7. His fever never came back.
Though the fever did not subside during the egg white treatment but I am pretty sure it helped him to build his immunity to the point of bringing back his energy. And most likely once the entire virus has been terminated, his fever came down. Amazing! I will continue use the treatment to see the consistency of its treatment. Thank you, Earthclinic for doing such good works."
[YEA] 08/08/2007: Michael Tshering Wangdi from Thimphu, Bhutan: "Hiii all. Thank you so much for the egg remedy. My wife's Father was so sick that time, that his temperature was over 40 and maybe 41. All we tried did'nt help. like: sponging with wett cloths, putting cold wett towels on him and letting him drink cold water and juices. Opening the windows and putting the Ventilator on him. The towels worked only temperary and when we took them of, it was like they where just washed in hot water. We where quite scared, as it becomes dangerous for the brain, when it rizes over 41 I believe, so finaly I found the egg cure on this site. as I am always a forstander of Grandma's, remedies, I wanted to try it right away and guess what. With in 10 minutes, the temperature, started to go down a litle and after half an hour to an hour, he was totaly fine and out of danger. We ceapt checking him every hour, but the temp stayed down like that. A litle miracle. Thank you soooo much. Dechen, Michael and Omte"
[YEA] 07/26/2007: Sandy from Fredeick, Maryland: "I work at a hospice house as a CNA. We had a patient who's temp was 102. We tried tylenol with no success, also used ice packs under arms and groin area. This only brought it down to 101.9. I thought I'd look on the internet to see if there was anything else I could do for the patient, that's when I came across your site on using egg whites. So I wetted 2 paper towels with the egg whites, wrapped his feet, then in plastic wrap and put footies on him. The remedy bought it down in 20 minutes to 101.4 and after 50 minutes, its down to 99.4. This made me and the patient a believer and I will definitely pass this info on to my co-workers. Thanks from me and the patient!"
[YEA] 07/25/2007: HERBERT from WINCHESTER, KENTUCKY: "MY GRANDSON, WHO IS 4 YEARS OLD HAS HAD A HIGH FEVER, AND LYING AROUND FOR 3 DAYS. THE DOCTOR SAID HE HAS STREP THROAT, ANYWAY AFTER GIVING HIM MEDICINE, PRESCRIBED BY THE DR., AND OVER THE COUNTER TYLENOL AND MOTRIN, WITHOUT ANY PROGRESS, I FINALLY GOT TO TRY THE EGG WHITES ON THE FEET TO BRING DOWN A FEVER REMEDY I READ ON THIS SITE, AND WITHIN 30 MINUTE HE WAS UP PLAYING, CHASING HIS MAMAW AROUND THE LIVING ROOM. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS SITE."
[YEA] 07/25/2007: Jen from San Antonio, Texas: "IT WORKS! My 9 month old daughter has been battling a fever for the past couple of days and last night I could not keep it down with Motrin or Tylenol. It got up to 102.8 and I decided to try the egg white remedy. It really worked! Within 30 minutes, her fever was down to 100.5. We were able to sleep after that and she is now a happy baby with a low grade fever of 99.5. My husband thought I was nuts last night, but encouraged me to right a response this morning."
[YEA] 07/17/2007: katie from scotia, NY: "i went online to try to find something for my son to bring his fever down. he had motrin and tylenol and it was too soon to give anything to him yet, so i went online to find something. when i first read it i thought no way and my husband laughed at me but i told my son i was going to put wet paper towels on his feet (didn't mention the egg whites)hehe. i only cracked one egg and put it on two paper towels and put them on his feet and put socks over it within 2 mins my son went from being lethargic to popping out of bed his temp was 102.9 after 3 min 101.9 after 5 mins 99.9 IT REALLY WORKS!!!!!!!"
[YEA] 07/11/2007: Connie from Wapakoneta, Ohio: "WOW!My grandson came down with fever and was spending the night at my house. I work 3rds and was at work, but had instructed my fiance to give tylonol and ck his fever at midnight. My fiance called me and adv'd me his fever was 103.8. I called someone in to work for me and researched on net fever. Thankfully, I found egg whites. I wrapped paper towels soaked in egg whites on his feet at 1:45am, ck'd his temp it was 102.8. Ck'd temp again at 2:10am was 101.4, again at 2:20am and to my amazement it was 99.4. I'm going to bed, I now have no doubt it works and he is going to be fine! Thanks sooo much!!!!"
