7 Natural Fever Relievers


2. Drink Plenty of Fluids

DrAxe.com notes that flooding your system with water or fruit juice diluted with water for kids can help flush out toxins. Cutting juice with water will reduce the glucose levels, where bacteria can thrive, explains the source.

Try to stay away from “sports” drinks, as they have a lot of added sugar and chemicals, adds the source. These additives can cause inflammation in your body, making your recovery from the fever slower. Instead of tap water, you can also try coconut water and herbal teas, it adds.
