Treating Fevers Naturally – A Book Review
Fever. It’s a word that instills fear in new mom and even in a seasoned one. But it doesn’t have to. Treating fevers naturally is doable and in most cases, much safer than giving over-the-counter medications.
Personally, I have a lot of experience with fevers as a mother of four. My oldest is turning 13 years old this year and used to get fevers quite often with no other symptoms when she was little. I relied on Tylenol back then because I didn’t know any better. I knew nothing of natural remedies.
Now, things are very different. I am a trained herbalist and have been treating fevers naturally, without the use of OTC medication since 2005.
There is a huge problem in America with parents overmedicating their children. It’s not their fault! They just go by the dosage on the bottles which don’t take into account how much a child weighs in most cases. Doctors say, “just give them Tylenol or Motrin”.
Studies have shown that acetaminophen contributes to liver damage and ibuprofen contributes to kidney damage. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want anything I’m giving to my children to contribute to either!
