Lemon-aid for Fever –
Here in the southern USA, it gets HOT and Humid. An old folk remedy to combat the heat is to drink fresh lemon-aid throughout the day. Lemons are a febrifuge (a medicine used to reduce fever) Lemon juice helps to protect your body from heatstroke and the sugar in lemon-aid maintains glucose levels in the blood. It also has hydrating properties and can reduce body heat during the hot, humid season. It has the same effect on the body during a fever.
Lemon juice is also a good antiperiodic and has been used as a substitute for quinine in treating malaria and other fevers.
Lemon is used in herbal medicine to help build immunity against colds, influenza, H1N1 (swine) Flu and other viral infections. Relieve chest congestion, coughing and clears the palete. It will replace the fluids lost through sweating. Lemonade (real lemons) is a good choice, too. Lemon water is one of the most important fluids RBTI practitioners use to help the body regain health. It consists of 10 % fresh lemon juice and 90% distilled water. Lemons provide the best building blocks for the liver to help create enzymes and amino acids for new cells, as well as aid in the pickup of the proper calciums, but also helps a bit to regulate the blood sugars and the oxygen levels in the blood. When the body has enough enzymes, it will have a stronger method of selecting the proper calciums from the ones available in the nutrition and the chemistry starts correcting itself.
Lemon juice can help treat a person who is suffering from cold, flu or fever. Lemon helps prevent the growth and multiplication of pathogenic bacteria that cause infections and diseases. It helps to break fever by increasing perspiration. To ease the symptoms of fever and the chills: add the juice of 1 lemon to a cup of hot water with honey and drink every 2 hours until the fever or chill subsides.
