There are many natural ways to lower fevers… here is my top 10 list of agents for lowering fevers.
Feverfew – Another powerful herb that goes back to the time of the Romans and the Greeks. A wonderful anti-inflammatory that also works well for long term pain and even migraines and also lowers fevers.
White Willow Bark – This is the natural form of aspirin and it has been around for thousands of years. It’s by far one of the best pain relievers on the planet and great for fevers, without all the side effects of modern pain relievers. But those who take a lot of pain relievers and have stomach conditions should avoid White Willow Bark or take it with Marshmallow Root or Slipper Elm to protect their stomach. By the way Marshmallow Root and Slipper Elm both have natural anti-inflammatory and pain killing abilities too, especially for the GI tract.
Yarrow – Yarrow is a plant that grows along the side of the road all over the US. And it’s one of the best ways to lower fevers quickly. Yarrow can be made into a great tea that will quickly lower your fever. And if need be you can also take a bath in yarrow tea and that too will help lower your fever.
Turmeric – This herb has been around in Ayurvedic Medicine for hundreds of years and works great as a powerful anti-inflammatory, pain reliever, helps with fevers, and also helps to prevent cancer… and it also doubles as a good antibacterial and antiviral agent too. Curcumin is the chemical that does all the magic, so eat your curry, curry contains turmeric.
