How to Get Rid of a Fever

When you or your child has a fever, often the first course of action is to call the doctor, but keep in mind that unless you’re working with a doctor who considers functional medicine as an alternative, you’ll likely walk out with a prescription for a synthetic drug. The goal is to lower, not eliminate, the fever because the fever helps fight the infection, and you want that. Typically, if a fever is mild, drinking plenty of fluids and rest will take care of it.

1. Rest Is Key

When we rest, our bodies work on healing by repairing and restoring themselves. Sleeping allows the brain to trigger the release of hormones that encourage new tissue growth, and this rest helps your body defend itself. When you rest, in particular when you sleep, your body makes more white blood cells that can attack viruses and bacteria, which is exactly what you want to happen. (1)

That’s why if you can’t sleep, chances are your fever will last longer. Make sure to get plenty of rest, aiming for seven to nine hours of sleep a night.

2. Drink Plenty of Fluids

Hydration is important, as the fluids can help remove toxins, which in turn speeds up the healing process. Don’t give a child too much fruit or apple juice, but rather dilute these drinks by making them one half water, one half juice. The reason for this is that bacteria live on a type of sugar called glucose. It’s best to keep glucose levels in check.
