Home Remedies for Fever

Fever Chart

A fever, which may also be known as Pyrexia (a fever of unknown origin), is one of the body's responses to illness. By heating up, the body is fighting off the invading germs. There are times, however, when fevers get dangerously high or last a long time and need to be brought down with an effective fever treatment. Many herbs have properties that lend themselves to natural treatment for fever.


Symptoms of a fever may include a high temperature, headache, muscle ache, shivering, loss of appetite, burning eyes, coated tongue, a feeling of heaviness and nausea and an excessive production of saliva.


Fever is usually caused by an infection. Infections can be viral like chicken pox or bacterial. Fever is the body's attempt to kill off the invading illness.


See your doctor if your fever is 103 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, if it lasts longer than 72 hours, if it is accompanied by a severe headache, a stiff neck or severe abdominal or back pain, if you're coughing up discolored phlegm or if it hurts to urinate. Check in with your doctor if you have a history of diabetes, heart disease or other chronic illness.
