I'm tending to get more frequent fevers, for whatever reason. I tried the AVC methods with the washcloths and this helped really quickly, within 20 minutes! First, I drank some ACV water, about 1 tablespoon in a large glass (maybe 2 cups?), hoping that it would speed things up. Then I got the 2 washcloths, wet them with water and wrung them out. I then poured a 50/50 mix of water + ACV onto them and wrung them out lightly.
I put one on my head and one on my stomach and lie down. Within 20 minutes the high temperature was gone! Thanks for this info!
My mother used washclothes dipped in apple cider vinegar and applied to our foreheads for fever many times when we were children. I believe it worked each time to reduce a fever. It was always after a hot bath.
I tried the ACV after developing a fever. I used half ACV half water and applied the wet napkin to my forehead and stomach and the fever was gone within 30 mins. Ash
Hi, I found this site and am amazed by what I am reading. My mother always told a story of how in the thirties, my uncle was a little boy and desperately ill. The doctors could not figure out what was wrong or how to help him and finally told my grandparents to prepare for the worst. Apparently all he kept asking for was vinegar (my mom never specified if it was ACV) and when things looked really bleak, they decided to let him have it since he never stopped asking for it and since there was no real reason to deny him, however bizarre it seemed to give it to him. He apparently struggled to drink it, but got through a whole bottle in a few hours despite his weakness. The fever suddenly broke and he fully recovered, and to this day no one in my family really understood how. Now I'm getting a clue as to why! So, I thought I would try the honey/water/AVC drink three times a day- today is day 5 and while I didn't see any real weight loss until today, today my jeans are suddenly loose! Also been using it as a toner and guess what! No trip to the dermo like I planned because my pores are getting smaller on their own! Depression doing a lot better too - though the jury is still out on that since today I was a bit down after a few up days - will check back in and let everyone know- but WOW! I'm amazed! My little uncle was really on to something, clearly!
I got home from work to find my wife with a fever over 103. We had tried a bath before I wen to work, and it helped to lower it, but it came back. She had also been taking motrin, but it did not help. I google searched and found your site. I wanted to do the egg whites, but we had just finished off the eggs this morning. I saw the posting for apple cider vinegar, which we had, and tried it just as described. The last time I checked her fever had dropped, and is nearing normal. The smell is the smell, I mean, it's vinegar, but the ends justify the means. What's a little odor, when you get a lowered fever in return? Thank you so much for providing this information for free. I have added this site to our favorites list.
HIGH FEVER: HELLO EVERYONE, JUST A FEEDBACK, BEEN DOWN WITH A FEVER SINCE MONDAY, 103 IS WAY HIGH!! TRIED THE EGG WHITES DIDNT WORK, BUT NOW I KNOW WHY CAUSE IT IS A VIRAL FEVER. TRIED TED'S REMEDY, CRUSHED THE ZINC TABLET TOOK IT W/WATER ALSO TOOK ASPRIN, WELL WHAT DO YOU KNOW THE FEVER IS DOWN TO 100, AND ONLY DID IT ONCE LAST NITE AND ONCE THIS MORNING!! (MY HUBBY IS STILL WONDERING WHAT I DID! LOL). SO IF ITS VIRAL EGG WHITE WILL NOT HELP I'M SURE IT HAS WORKED FOR A LOT OF PPL. MY BRONCHITIS WAS STARTING UP SO HALF LEMON 1TAB RAW HONEY AND ICAP FUL OF ACV, STOPPED THE BUGGER RIGHT AWAY!! LOVE MY FAV WEBSITE "EARTHCLINIC".
EC: Tish is likely referring to Ted's aspirin cure on the Swine Flu page here: http://www.earthclinic.com/cures/swine-flu.html
I started using young banana leaves on the inside of my wife's socks, she was running a high fever, my grandma used to do this for me when I was younger. When I checked them back 3 hours later they were drying and brown in her socks, but her fever only decreased a little, I going to try the potato remedy now, I hope this works.
This is a method for curing fever I read about in Ayurvedic medicine: drinking a cup of hot water (cooled to room temp) dissipates the heat. It seems illogical but works on a like-to-like level, where heat removes heat. So I tried it: I boiled a cup of water and added a bit of cool water so I could drink it right away without waiting. After 20 minutes of consuming it, I felt a wave of heat leaving my body. It was unusual but effective!
If I remember correctly, in Ayurvedic medicine, fevers originate in the stomach, which could be why this is effective. Hope it helps someone else!
Had a mild fever of 100.58. With my other health conditions it had me worried. Decided to try the egg white remedy. Painted egg white white on both feet, wrapped in Saran Wrap and put on some socks. Within 30 minutes fever had dropped to 97.16
Egg whites remedy works! Time and again! My son ( 7months) has had fever all day, when I administrer medication he vomits it all up. Out of desperation I used the egg white remedy, and almost instantly the fever started dropping. I have done this many times with my daughter and it works every time!
I used the egg white remedy because I was desperate to lower a fever prior to minor outpatient surgery. Used the egg white remedy and no joke, took my fever down two degrees in 30 min. And it STAYED down. Don't know if it would have gone down on its own but this was terrific timing so I have to believe in the eggs.
My boyfriend has been very ill for the past week, his tonsils are swollen and infected and he's been getting high fevers almost every night. I've been asking him all week if he'd like to try any home remedies that I've read about on Earth Clinic, but he's very skeptical about natural medicine and has decided to stick to the antibiotics prescribed to him and bottles of cold/flu medicine instead.
Late last night his fever was so bad, he started hallucinating and said he saw swirls of colours appear all over our pitch-black room. I put a cold cloth over his forehead, gave him more medicine and decided to try the egg white remedy whether he liked it or not. I was in a panic and did not have time to refer back to the website, so I did what I could remember. I cracked an egg into a bowl, dipped a piece of paper towel in the egg and wet the bottom of his feet, then proceeded to wrap his feet in cling film and put his socks on. Within 10-15 minutes his dangerously high temperature had dropped significantly. He felt a lot better, said he didn't feel as warm and was no longer nauseated.
Unfortunately his fever did not go away entirely, because I don't believe I soaked his feet enough, but it did drop to a safer temperature and allowed him to finally fall asleep.
I'm happy I found this website, thanks EC!
I had two plastic surgery procedures, on the third day my fever was so high I felt faint I did not want to go the ER so I whipped up four egg whites in a bowl put my feet on a towel put the egg whites all over my feet put my feet in large zip lock put a loose rubber band over my feet, WOW my fever began to drop and I feel asleep with bag on my feet and the next day I did it again no more fever!! Of course people need to know if they are allergic to eggs, before trying this.
I tried socks soaked in egg whites with my feet on a ceramic plate with egg white in it plus ACV on wash clothes on my forehead and belly (together) for 30 min. My temperature went down from 99.4 to 98.25 (my regular temperature is around 97). The two together helped a lot! Thought: Why not just use a plate with egg whites and no socks?
Thank you thank you...... I was all alone and my fever kept rising. It got to 103.5 and I started to worry, OK maybe freak out. Found your remedy of egg whites on your feet and as bizarre as it sounded I tried it and within 15 minutes my fever was down to 102.8. Another 20 minutes and it was down to 100.8. That I can live with until the morning! Bless you for sharing!
