When a baby is ill and has a high fever, many parents tend to panic and give the baby medicine. What is not commonly understood is that fever is the body's natural use of its immune system. It also helps the system burn out viral and bacterial invaders.
Many common medicines tend to lower the immune system and unfortunately seem to prolong the cold and infection in the system longer. Keep in mind that everyone's temperature rises in the late afternoon and early evening and falls between midnight and early morning. It is a natural cycle of our internal thermostat. High fever in infants and kids should also not be taken lightly. The parent should consult the doctor but one thing to seriously consider to relieve a fever while at the same time boosting the immune system is to use a little calcium lactate. Calcium lactate is a white crystalline salt made by the action of lactic acid on calcium carbonate. It is used in food and given medicinally. In medicine, calcium lactate is most commonly used as an antacid and also to treat calcium deficiencies.
Calcium and Fever
Calcium lactate can be absorbed at various pHs (acid/alkaline levels) and does not need to be taken with food for absorption for these reasons. It is a blood buffer that can lower the fever while boosting the immune system. Lactose intolerant individuals may also use this since calcium lactate contains no milk product or whey. Besides people using it to support their health from fevers and infections, it has also been known to be used for coughs, insomnia, hemorrhage and cramps. For maximizing results, it can be combined with vitamins A, vitamin C and P otherwise known as bioflavonoids.
If the infant or child is running a fever, you may grind the appropriate amount calcium lactate and mix with food or bottled milk every hour or two.
I trust you'll never have to make use of this information and that your child never has to experience fevers. However, if your child happens to experience a fever, I trust that this calcium lactate information will serve you and your child well.
Please remember, none of this information is intended to cure or replace your doctor's advice in any way about fever. Please act responsibly and consult with your medical professional to ensure that whatever health plan you choose is the right one for you and your child. And also, make sure that your child will not catch fever.Return to the top of Fever and Calcium
