Fevers happen, but how we handle them can either help our immune system or enable the fever! Watch for my tips on how to naturally support your body through a fever.

Hello, hello.

We are going to talk about fevers. So, we’re going to talk about fevers in little kids, and we’re going to talk about fevers in adults.

One of the first things that I tell my moms is, you’ve got to look at your child. Treat your child, not the temperature. All righty? So if your child is running around, having a great time, playing, and you reach down to pick that kid up, and you’re like, “oh, my gosh, you’re burning up,” but the kid doesn’t know it, leave them alone. They’re doing great. Their immune system is being challenged, and they are conquering it. They’re winning it.

Calcium Loss

Then, if you get to your child and they’re like lethargic, and they’re tired, and they’re burning up. What’s happening there is, the body’s struggling with a calcium loss.

And when we look at research (there’s so much research about calcium in the blood and temperatures and viral infections and bacterial infections), what we know is that children grow. If they’re in the middle of a growth spurt and they come up on a pathogen they’ve not experienced before, calcium is needed for both of those.

If your calcium is already slightly depleted, because maybe they’re just not getting enough in their diet, then what happens is, the body either has to choose bone, or it has to choose immune system. Then, if there’s an even bigger depletion, the body will start to pull the calcium from the bone to feed the immune system. And that’s where we get the really painful, “I hurt all over, I’m uncomfortable” fevers.

Steps to Take

What do we do with these cases? Number one, calcium lactate. I love Standard Process for this. They make it in a powder. We can give it to our kids before there’s a fever, which is ideal, but then we can also give it to them in acute situations. And what this does is, it feeds the body. It gives the body what it needs to combat this pathogen. Also, if they happen to have growing pains, it will combat that as well.

So that’s when I talk to my parents. I’m like, we want to arm the army to win this war against the pathogen. We don’t want to put it to sleep. And that’s what a lot of pain relievers do. They actually suppress the fever, which means the pathogen gains ground and wins. So. we elongate the actual problem.

But I know you mommas. You want to make that pain go away, and I am right there with you. But let’s learn to reach for something different, which is calcium lactate. And you give that to your kid, and, oh, glorious things start to occur.

And then in adults, almost the same situation. You guys just need a little bit more trace minerals, and so that’s where the Redmond’s Real Salt can come in. Drinking the salt, the calcium lactate powder, helping to support the body when it needs it with a little extra calcium.

And that’s where, when we kind of learn to stop reaching for the things that we are told to and reach for some things that are new to us, we can discover how absolutely powerful the body is.

That’s what I want to teach you guys, We shouldn’t be getting sick. If you are, it’s a nutritional deficiency.

Stick with me, because I’m going to teach you all so many more things. Talk to you soon.
