A fever is an increase in body temperature, often due to some illness. If you have a fever, something unusual is going on in your body.
Fever plays a crucial role in helping your body fight off several infections.
In the 1919 year, 40 million people died because of fever.
Only farmers were immune to the illness. One doctor decided to visit a farmer’s family to discover why they were immune. After he had discovered that the whole family was in good health, he was astonished. When he had asked for the reason, they told him that they kept a whole onion on a plate in every room.
The doctor couldn’t believe. He immediately asked for one onion in order to make microscopic analyses. He discovered the virus of a fever in it. It was evident that the onion had absorbed all the bacteria and because of that, all the people in the house were healthy.
I have heard the same story from another doctor. She read an article which stated that two onions have been sliced up and poked with a fork on one side. The patient should sleep with that onion on a plate in one’s own vicinity the whole night.
It was stated in the article that the following day the onion would become black, but the patient would feel better.
You may try with this. Results may vary from person to person. What works for some people, does not work for others.

Your grandmother was on to something when she placed that mustard plaster on your chest to ease the congestion of the flu or a cold. Avoid the mess but still reap the benefits by sipping a cup of mustard tea. Place one teaspoon of crushed mustard seeds in boiling water. Crush the seeds in a glass or metal bowl, plastic isn’t hard enough. Mustard powder is also available in the spice section of the grocery store. Let steep 15 minutes then strain. Add honey or your favorite sweetener.
Got a headache? Head to the nearest rosemary bush. Pour two cups of boiling water over 1/2 cup of dried rosemary or 1 cup of fresh rosemary leaves. Let it steep for 15 minutes. Strain and add to a hot bath. Relax for 20 minutes. If you don’t have rosemary herbs use rosemary essential oil instead. Four or five drops should do it.
Sesame oil soothes aching joints. Gently massage 1/8 teaspoon of the oil into your painful joints. After 8 weeks pain should significantly decrease. Don’t use the toasted sesame oil in the Asian section of the grocery store. It has a very strong scent. Find regular sesame oil with the cooking oils.
Cole and flu virus survive on human skin for three hours. Wash your hands or use a hand sanitizer during flu season. Germs can transfer from your hands to the handle of a grocery cart for example. Take advantage of the sanitizing wipes offered by many stores.
