I always like to give you guys relevant & accurate health information that you can do yourself! Did you know that one of the best ways to naturally stop a fever in babies, children & yourself is the "wet sock" trick? .
👉🏽IMPORTANT: before doing anything, please know that fevers are not a bad thing! The older Merck Manuals recommend not doing anything for a fever until 104F! Fevers are a sign that your body recognizes that it's being invaded, & is appropriately increasing the body temperature to kill that pathogen! Prematurely stopping a fever has been linked to a higher risk of developing secondary infections! 😱.
TO SAFELY HALT A FEVER🤐:
1. Warm up the child's feet or your own in a warm bath or soak.
2. Put a pair of socks in ice cold water then wring out the excess water.
3. Slip over feet.
4. Cover wet socks with warm, wool socks.
5. Stay in bed. Do not be up moving around. Stay covered up. It's ok if you or the child sweats as the fever breaks.
6. You will notice the fever is gone or greatly improved the next day. .
✔WHY DOES THIS WORK? The body yearns for homeostasis. With wet feet, the body must increase circulation & lymphatic movement. This also circulates white blood cells & the other immune cells which are the soldiers that respond once they detect a problem. Wet feet is like a beacon to them that something is wrong and the heat & immune cells are circulated & drawn to the feet to relieve the fever!
You should see the fever improving within 4 hours. .
