      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!

            10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

            10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

            Sleeping is one of the most important things we do every night.

            Getting the right amount of sleep has an untold number of health benefits and not getting enough sleep is a serious problem in many countries around the world.

            So you should have heard of the many benefits of getting adequate sleep, but did you know that you can get additional benefits by sleeping naked?

            Here are some benefits of sleeping in the nude:

            Video Summary

            1. It is easier.

            When you don’t have to worry about sleeping in clothes, things start to get easier. You don’t have to buy pajamas, which can save you money. You have less clothes to wash and less clothes to put away. You may have to clean your bed sheets more often, but not nearly as often as you’d have to wash your pajamas when you run out.

            2. It forces you to be ready to go more often.

            Some people get off of work, change into their pajamas, and use this as an excuse to stay home the rest of the evening. This can lead to a more sedentary lifestyle, which has been attributed to things like weight gain.[1] When you keep your regular clothes on, you tend to go out more often and that’s a good thing.

            3. It can make you feel happier and more free.

            Just imagine the feeling of laying in bed naked. You’re free of your pants and underwear. Women, you’re not wearing a constrictive bra. It’s just you sandwiched between two cool sheets. The feeling just makes you want to smile and it makes you feel more free. Everyone can use that kind of good feeling every now and then, and it may even help you be happier as a person.

            4. Skin-on-skin contact is the best.

              If you’re married, or living with your significant other, sleeping naked gives a greater chance of skin-on-skin contact, especially when it comes to cuddling. This kind of contact can also lead to a more active sex life. All of this releases copious amounts of oxytocin, which is the neurotransmitter that helps you feel those good feelings about your significant other.[2]

              5. It could lead to better sleep.

              Let’s revisit the scenario I described above. There are no drawstrings or clothes getting tangled in sheets. You don’t have to worry about shirts getting twisted. All of these distractions go away when you sleep naked and it may help you get better, deeper sleep. You don’t need science to tell you that better, deeper sleep only helps you be healthier.

              6. It can help your skin.

              For once your body gets to breathe. Your private parts, armpits, and feet are generally restricted all day and are often covered by multiple layers, even in the summer time. Give those parts a chance to air out and breathe. This can lower the risk of skin diseases, like athlete’s foot, that result from wet, restricted skin.[3]

              7. It helps you regulate your cortisol.

              Cortisol is a very strange chemical in the body but it can do a lot of damage. When you sleep naked, it helps keep your body temperature at the optimal ranges so your body can better create cortisol. If you sleep overheated your cortisol levels tend to stay high, even after you wake up. This can lead to increased anxiety, cravings for bad food, weight gain, and more terrible things.[4] Sleep naked so you can keep your body temperature down and sleep well so your body can properly produce and regulate cortisol.

              8. It balances your melatonin and growth hormone.

              Continuing along that same vein, keeping your sleeping environment below 70 degrees (F) every night can help your body regulate its melatonin and growth hormone levels. These chemicals help the body do things like prevent aging and are essential to good health. When you sleep in clothes, your body heats up and prevents effective use of these hormones. In other words, sleeping with clothes on makes you grow old faster.

              9. It can keep your sex organs happier.

              For men, the cooler sleeping conditions allows your testes to remain at a cooler temperature. This helps keep your sperm healthy and your reproductive systems functioning as normal. For women, the cooler and more airy sleeping conditions can actually help prevent yeast infections. Yeast grows better in warm, moist conditions.[5] When it’s cooler and dryer, the growth of yeast is prevented.

              10. Sleeping in the summer is more bearable.

                Summertime is a tricky time to get good sleep. If you don’t have air conditioning, then you may find your bedroom a bit stuffy at night.

                Shedding those bedtime clothes can help the bedroom feel more comfortable. You may even be able to turn the A/C off on those cooler nights, which can save you a few bucks on your electricity bill.

                Don’t wake up drenched in sweat again because your thermostat is downstairs and the hot air expands up to your bedroom where the thermostat can’t read the warm temperatures.

                Sleep well with your naked body!

                With these tips in mind, it’s time to start taking off your clothes at night!

                Of course, there are times where clothes are preferable. If you are ill or it’s cold outside, then you should sleep with clothes on to help you stay warm and prevent further illness. Otherwise, go commando!
