Fever is not a disease but a condition in the body wherein the balance of circulation has become disturbed. A fever is nature’s way of trying to burn out the toxic poisons. When the body becomes exposed to excessive chilling or dampness, the capillaries near the surface contract and the pores become obstructed with body waste matter, effective sealing them closed. This results in a containment of body heat and a sudden rise of body temperature. In fever the natural body function is to increase the heat to a point wherein the thick glutinous and fibrinous matters loading and congesting the system are made liquid enough to pass through the fine and delicate excretory membranes and tubules, flushing out of the body in the sweat.
When a Fever Just Gets started: it can be cleared up very easily, if these following procedures are started early. One of the simplest remedies is to
- Stop the use of all foods and beverages,
- Take a high herbal enema (catnip is good)
- Drink only red raspberry tea.
Between cups of this tea, distilled water may be used, and if desired, give some good organic (natural) Vitamin C.
Drink several quarts of red raspberry tea during the day, but no solid foods.
The running nose, fever, headache and weariness will soon leave and one will feel like a new person. Even after feeling greatly improved, continue on with the red raspberry leaf tea all that day and well into the next day.
If an adult will stay on the tea for three days, it would do a wonderful cleansing job for the body.
To make red raspberry leaf tea put one heaping teaspoonful of cut or granulated (powdered) raspberry leaves into a teacup. Fill the cup with boiling distilled water, cover and let stand in a warm place for five or ten minutes. Strain, and drink it while it is very warm (You may use an ounce of red raspberry leaves to a pint of distilled water, if desiring to make up more at a time).
