Chills Home Remedies
A traditional home remedy for chills begins by covering the patient with several warm blankets. Then rub and massage the soles of the feet for 5 minutes and then put warm socks on the feet. If warm socks are not available, use two pair. Make a tea from ten holy basil leaves (fresh and crushed if available – if not powdered), five cloves, five black pepper corns in five cups of water. Boil this until there is only one cup of water left. Strain the tea, add a dash of salt and a teaspoon of honey.
A bath with warm water will reduce chills. Drink plenty of water
A good home remedy for chills is to make a cup of water as hot as is tolerable, then stir in the juice of one lemon, a teaspoon of grated ginger and honey. Let it steep for 5 minutes and drink.
For chills brought on by a high fever, take a half teaspoon of lobelia tincture and a cup of catnip tea every four hours. Don’t use this if you are breast feeding or pregnant and don’t do this if for a child under 1 year of age.
Here is a long time home remedy for relieving chills. Wet a washcloth with warm water and rub it somewhat vigorously over the patient’s skin. Do this for as long as it can be tolerated – 20 minutes is good. Keep warming the washcloth with warm water.
Put a hot water bottle under your shirt. Don’t use a heating pad as the alternating current gives off electromagnetic radiation and this disturbs the chi (vital life force) in the body.
