Tea For Fever

For centuries, tea and other herbal infusions have been traditionally taken to complement the treatment for people with fever.
Fever is said to be present if the body temperature rises by at least one degree above the normal, which is considered to be at 98.6°F or 37°C.

Fever is the body's reaction to an attack by virus and bacteria.
An infection is usually the primary cause of fever.
The rise in the body's temperature is due to the body's making sure that it becomes as unwelcoming and as inhospitable as possible for the agents of infection.

Certain physical factors such as dehydration of the body, muscular overexertion, and reactions to mosquito bites, bee stings, and other allergic or toxic reactions can also cause a rise in the body temperature.
In children, the onset of chicken pox, the measles and the mumps are accompanied by fever.

Fever is usually accompanied by general lethargy, weakness, chills, poor appetite and irritability. Often the individual only desires to sleep and take a rest.

Medical care is often required to identify and treat the underlying causes of fever.
Since these causes are quite varied, it is recommended that medical consultation be performed so that the correct ailment is diagnosed.
