Well friends it’s no secret Flu season is upon us and going full swing, ordinarily we are very blessed and miss out on most of whatever new
bug going around has to offer. Unfortunately this time my 7 year old
son Ever fell ill and has been bed ridden for the last few days. As you can
imagine for a 7 year old voluntarily deciding to stay in bed for 3 days means
that he feels pretty bad. Aside from the normal Flu stuff, nausea, aches and
pains, loss of appetite, our little guy had a very high fever and this proved
to be the most difficult aspect to get under control. I wanted to share with everyone how we managed
to keep Ever from the emergency room.
Ginger, I know super complicated right? To be more specific
I used “Rebbecca’s Detox Bath”, this stuff is amazing at dropping a fever and
generally detoxing the body quickly. Best of all it’s made from stuff you
probably have around the house, Ginger, Sea Salt and Baking Soda. You can use Ginger by itself in a warm to hot
bath and it will work, any ginger is fine even the off the shelf stuff for
baking from your local mega retailer but there is something about these three
products together that really do the trick.
"The proof is in the pudding they say", we were able to drop
his fever from as high as 104f back down to 101.5f or lower with a good 30-45
minute soak. If you thought they hated baths before try talking them into the 3rd
long soak of the day when the fever is at its worst and they don’t even want to
sit up but I’m convinced the simple ginger bath kept us from the emergency room or
So that’s my simple solution to a potentially very serious
problem, stop by and pick up a jar of Rebbecca's Detox or if you're brave mix up a batch for yourself.
Thanks for reading and stay healthy my friends,
