    What Do Socks, Cider Vinegar and Fevers Have to Do With Each Other?

    Our little 10 month old girl was sick for the first time this week with high fevers and as a first time mum I panicked. Apparently a fever is a good sign that your immune system is working, and it helps to fight off and impair the growth of many bacteria’s and viruses.

    All I wanted to do was make her feel better but didn’t want to use panadol as my first option as I had heard that it could mask other symptoms.

    Then I remembered reading some where about the healing benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) and decided to try it to bring her temperature down. And it worked!

    It is thought that the vinegar draws the heat to the cloths and then dissipates.

    Here are 2 Ways to use Apple Cider Vinegar to reduce a fever:

    1. Take 1 part ACV to 2 parts cold water. Soak 2 cotton socks in the mixture, wring them out and put them on your feet. Cover theĀ socks in a towel (or plastic bags for an adult) and leave on overnight or for several hours. When the socks are no longer cool take them off and repeat the process.
    2. Have a warm bath with 1 cup of apple cider vinegar.
    It is VERY important to stay hydrated during a fever.

    Always seek medical advice when you have a fever.

    There are a many number of healing benefits of ACP so next time you are ill or have skin problems try a little ACP.
