If you've been lucky enough to sweat profusely, you are well on your way to recovery.
3) Shock treatment:
If you haven't sweated or haven't sweated enough, then the next evening, while your herbal tea is steeping, take a sitz bath . No, don't laugh, it's extraordinarily effective (but unnecessary if your fever is under 38°).
The sitz bath:
Its principle of action is as follows:
1/ We lower the temperature of the body at the level of the pelvis and the kidneys. The blood then flows back to the top of the body, the bronchi.
2/ We rub the lower body which has been cooled. The blood mass that has been chased away comes back in full force.
Under the effect of ebb and flow, the upper body (bronchi, head) benefits from blood regeneration and a major cleansing of the lymphatic system. It is a tremendous boost to the body which is fighting infection.
The natural reaction to such brewing is sweating . Through it, the body eliminates waste (keep a towel near you at night and do not try to stop sweating by uncovering yourself, for example). In the morning the healing can be spectacular.
Here's how to do it:
→ Prepare a basin large enough to accommodate your basin.
→ Steep your herbal tea and prepare your bed.
→ Heat the bathroom.
→ Put cold
water into the basin (yes, even if it is freezing in winter). Note that you need little water otherwise it will overflow when you sit in it.
→ Cover your chest, it must stay warm, put a mat under your feet.
→ Close the bathroom door and if possible put the towel on a towel warmer that will dry you later.
→ Sit down slowly in the basin. You are cold, that's normal, but:
the first minute you should only feel cold in your groin and buttocks
after 2-3 minutes (it seems long) you shouldn't be cold anywhere, you should be fine (the headache subsided).
→ When you no longer feel the cold of the water at all (~4mn) it means that all the blood that could have flowed back has flowed back, so there is no need to stay longer.
→ Get out of the water and rub yourself with the towel.
→ Drink your herbal tea then jump under the duvet, you must now sweat to eliminate toxins.
→ During the night sponge yourself often, do not get soaked in sweat.
→ In the morning, you will have the impression of reliving...
This method is very suitable for children.
