We all have been there of course when our body is heating like it’s lit on fire from the inside and you just can’t do anything except endure the pain. So, in those times, what is your first reaction to it? You want a pill, right? Just to take away the fever.
However, most of us don’t know that fever is actually our body’s defense mechanism against viruses and bacteria. When you have a medicine, you just take your body’s ability to fight the foreign material in the body. Therefore, what you shouldn’t do is take a pill and here is what you can do instead.
- Don’t eat anything. Your body is fighting a battle against the virus, so the last thing you wanna do is give it extra work by eating. That’s why sometimes you vomit the food you eat because your body isn’t in a position to digest it and is focused on eliminating the threat i.e. Virus or bacteria.
- Rest as much as possible. Don’t just go about your day thinking you are healthy because that will just make the situation worse. Give your body the time it needs. After a point you will start feeling better.
- Have coconut water or Sweet lemon juice because that will help your body in the process. It will help it throw the waste out throw sweat and urine.
- Tulsi water is also very beneficial. It is antibacterial so it kills the bacteria and your body drops the temperature automatically.
So, next time you get fever, just rest thinking that your body is doing its work and you have to co-operate with it. The higher the fever, the bigger the threat and more you should rest. Don’t eat a pill, take some rest, have water and chill and take care of yourself.
