5 Drinks To Fight The Dreadful Fever

5 Drinks To Fight The Dreadful Fever
When you’re fighting off a fierce fever you might be tempted to indulge in some of your favorite drinks such as coffee, soda or even some form of alcohol. Any of those choices are very, very bad ideas. To cure your fever faster and make the symptoms you’re suffering from less severe, you need to ingest the things that will make you feel better, not worse. For that reason, you need to take a look at these five kinds of drinks that have the ability to fight off the fever.

1. Broth Soup

    If you regularly eat your grandma’s homemade chicken broth when you’re sick you’re already doing something to help with your fever. While many kinds of broth can be effective, chicken broth is a particularly powerful way to fight your fever. It will reduce congestion, repair body tissue and support your immune system, aiding you in getting better a lot faster. For that reason, you should check out this highly rated chicken broth recipe.

    2. Tea

      There have been a number of benefits shown for drinking tea instead of coffee by both science and personal experience. One of the less discussed benefits of the drink is how hot or cold tea can successfully treat a fever. The combination of some hydration with just the right amount of caffeine means that you’ll get a nice jolt. Even better is that tea is extremely easy to make. All you have to do is boil a tea bag that you might even already have in your home in hot water for a few minutes. While every kind of tea has some vitamins that will help you deal with your fever, linden flower tea is especially effective against a fever.

      3. Fruit Juice

        Fruit juice is by no means an effective way to lose weight, but it should be a help when you’re suffering from a fever, since it has so many of the nutrients that are essential for good health. Orange juice, in particular, stirs the digestive system and is likely to make you urinate, which causes you to naturally remove toxins from your body. Orange juice doesn’t even need a recipe! You should just make sure that it is as natural and freshly squeezed as possible if you want it to make a positive impact.

        4. Apple Cider Vinegar

          Apple Cider Vinegar has a number of benefits. That it can successfully fight a bad fever is just one of its advantages. To fight the fever you can do something as simple as sipping on some Apple Cider Vinegar once an hour or something as unique as taking a bath made up of hot water and one cup of Apple Cider Vinegar! Either way, you’ll probably feel better afterwards. Here are some recipes.

          5. Water

            As much as other liquids can do to help you fight the fever, nothing is ultimately more effective than plain old H2O. During a fever, water is drained from your cells due to your temperature. You might also be sweating a lot, throwing up or experiencing diarrhea. Any of those symptoms will deplete the water in your body even further and cause you to feel continually more awful. So replenish that water regularly and often to avoid the dehydration that will make the current symptoms from your fever even worse as well as possibly adding new ones. It would benefit you to also drink other liquids on this list for your fever, but, as usual, water should be your number one priority. By keeping that key fact in mind as well as the rest of the points in this article, you’re likely to get better in no time!

            30 Brilliant Camping Hacks I Wish I Knew Earlier

            30 Brilliant Camping Hacks I Wish I Knew Earlier

            Ah, camping. The great outdoors, the campfires, the food you’d never eat in civilised society: it’s a wonderful experience.

            That said, things can get a little bit tricky when we are left to the mercy of Mother Nature. Here are 30 fantastic camping hacks you can use to make your camping experience as wonderful as possible!

             1. Use sage to repel mosquitoes.

              photoshelter.com

              Place some sage in your campfire and the smell is sure to ward off any pesky mosquitos.

              2. Liquid soap + cotton balls = no ticks.

                crateandbarrel.com

                If you or one of your fellow campers is having trouble with a tick, place the soap-soaked cotton on the tick for 20 seconds. The tick will eventually stop chewing and will come away with the cotton ball. If the tick was attached for a lengthy amount of time you may want to consider keeping it in a container so that you can test it for Lyme disease later.

                3. Use an acorn cap as a whistle if you get lost.
