When i was 15 yo (1996), i was extremely sick. I spiked a fever of 104 degrees. My mother mixed lard & baking soda together, smothered it on my feet & put a 1 gallon freezer zip lock bag on each foot. This was to keep the nasty stuff from getting on my sheets. I truly thought she was nuts! I fell asleep & woke up 2 hrs later to my sheets being completely soaked from the fever breaking. She told me that my great grandmother told her about this remedy when she was a kid. And that was the first time she tried it.


Onions in the Socks

So, my go to for breaking a fever was not listed and I had to submit it because it had been a life saver. I started using this when my daughter was 2 and I couldn't get her 104 fever to break. I cut up onions and put them in her socks. Leave it there over night, or until the fever breaks. Within minutes you can feel the fever dropping, from feet up the skin started to cool. The onions will start to smell like fried onions as the fever starts to cook the onions. My daughter's fever broke and never returned. She is now 13, and whenever she gets a fever, the first thing she asks for to help bring it down is onions. Now everyone in my family uses this.


Cup of Hot Water

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!

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!


Rubbing Alcohol

Not sure if regular rubbing alcohol is considered a natural cure but take a glass bowl and fill it up with cold water and then add ice cubes to the bowl of water and then take one cup or half the bottle a regular old rubbing alcohol that you can buy at the grocery store, I think it's like 70% isopropyl alcohol and add that to the bowl of water and ice cubes. Take some washcloths, probably like 3 to 5 of them, add them to the bowl of ice water and alcohol solution, then ring out the washcloth so they're not sopping wet and then add them depending on severity of temperature of fever add washcloth to high up on the inner thigh right where your thigh meets your pelvic bone area.

Then take two more washcloths from the from the bowl of water alcohol solution, ring them out slightly, and then place them under the underarms and then take the 1 remaining washcloths and place it on the forehead.

If fever still hasn't broke within 5 to 10 minutes, add more ice cubes to the water and quite a bit more rubbing alcohol to the bowl of solution washcloth and place them back on to the areas mentioned above. Continue till fever breaks, which should be quick but no longer than 30 minutes. I believe it almost every time guaranteed to break any fever. I've seen it work multiple times on different people ages ranging from 2 - 50 plus years old and it worked every time with fevers ranging from mild to severe 106 temp. And it worked almost instantaneously.

Oil of oregano did work wonderfully on my 7 year old son. I was amazed at how his fever went down in 10 minutes and he seemed to have more energy. I rubbed 2 drops behind both ear lobes. And about 4 drops on the soles of his feet!


Ground Salt in Belly Button
Posted by Mark B (Deming, Nm) on 10/30/2016

A Chinese acupuncturist taught us about using FINE ground salt for dropping fevers. Fill the belly button cavity with fine ground salt (use a mortar and pestel if you have one to get it ground nice and fine so it doesn't irritate the sensitive skin), preferably sea salt, and cover well with skin tape (first aid type) or a couple of band-aids. Drink plenty of water and try to get some sleep. Good to do over night, then take a little break by cleaning the belly button out with water, drying gently and applying a tiny bit of oil (coconut, olive, jojoba, or castor). Repeat as needed after a few hours. Works well and is the go-to in our family.


Glandular Fever Remedies

Dear Coral-Leigh,

Glandular Fever is another name for Mono. There is a lot of information here:

https://www.earthclinic.com/cures/mononucleosis.html

Our family's favorite mono treatment is extra virgin coconut oil. It is amazing for this. We give 1 Tablespoon three times a day for an adult sized person. Lots of vitamin C is good, too.

Hi, my name is Coral-Leigh. My best friends has been diagnosed with glandular fever, and has received this through swapping saliva with her boyfriend that also had it more than a year ago. I've been following this website for years and can't seem to find anything on this particular problem. If anyone knows a natural and effective way to solve this problem it was be much appreciated. Thanks

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


Linden Tea

Pour a cup of boiling water over a teaspoon of dried linden tree blossoms, cover, steep for 15 minutes, strain, drink warm. You will sweat, and the fever will go down. My mother used to make me take this and sweat under a blanket, maybe sweating has something to do with overcoming illness too. I remember raspberry jam worked too. Just take couple teaspoons of raspberry jam, pour a cup of warm-to-hot water over it, mix, drink, lay down and wait for sweat to coe and a fever go down.

Thanks for all the tips! My fiance had a slight fever last night and I quickly checked out this site. Tried the ACV with washcloths method, at the same time, I made him drink some honeygar which was in the fridge. His fever was gone within half hour and no paracetamol required!


Oregano Oil

Oregano oil on the feet worked wonders for my boyfriend. I rubbed two drops on each foot and fever went down real quick. I mixed it with a liitle sesame oil so he could fall asleep cause sesame oil rubbed in the foot is suppose to help you fall asleep so it was a two in one remedy. I highly recommend oregano oil for the feet to reduce fevers.


Typhoid Fever Treatment
Posted by Susan (USA) on 06/07/2013

Thank you very much David. Yes she is taking Apple Cider Vinegar with baking soda or Apple Cider Vinegar with lime. She is 32 yrs old. Her progress is bad. Fever is continuous. Today she vomited twice and no appetite.

My other daughter suggested ER to rehydrate but I am sure those docs will give her antibiotics.


Typhoid Fever Treatment
Posted by Dave (Fountain Inn, Sc) on 06/07/2013

Typhoid (meaning typhus like) which is distinct from typhus but both caused by a different bacteria... which ever she has can be killed by colloidal silver.

Silver kills not only virus but bacteria and fungus.

Go to a health food store and give her a teaspoon twice daily for a few weeks. Also depending on her age, if she can tolerate a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water, letting her sip on that after supper until consumed. Do that for a week. That too can kill a bacterial infection. Finally, use three drops of echinacia, the herbal extract form, in water twice a day for a week. Echinacia is a great "bug" killer.

If she still tests positive, repeat the above until she no longer is positive.

Coconut oil kills 95% of all pathogens. Getsome organic green coconuts and drink the water for nutritional support. The 3 acids that kill the pathogens are located in the pulp. Eat the pulp. Eat some organic fruits and vegetables raw for nutritional support acids from citric fruits like lemons and strawberries attach to the toxins during die off, so take some of those. They need to be organi. In the Philippines, they make a ferment for holidays from green papaya and garlic that contains acids.

Take some of that nascent iodine, it kills 100% of all pathogens. Get some of that while you are waiting for the package to arrive. Get some japanese konbu that contains iodine. Follow the directions and take some of that. The iodine in konbu is not nearly as effective as the nascent iodine. Google nascent iodine and they will explain why when taking nascent iodine put some in a teaspoon of water and let dissolve through the gums in the mouth. It goes directly into the bloodsteam and begins working immediately.

If she experiences severe reactions from the die off either from the coconut oil or the iodine, stop taking for a while. When she recovers lower the dosage. begin with low dosages because the toxins from the die off are dangerous. The idea is to kill the pathogens, but not too many all at once. The toxins attach to the acids from fruits and ferments and the water washes them away. Make sure she takes lots of water. Coconut water is very good. Also garlic kills a lot of pathogens. Get some organic garlic and crush it with a broad knife. Wait 15 minutes. Soak in 1 cup of warm water for 1 hour then filter and drink.
