Recently on the channel, we talked about the benefits of holy basil, also known as Tulsi in Indian cuisine.
But today, we will talk about the benefits of basil, especially for fevers.
Did you know that this herb can naturally lower fevers?
Basil is an aromatic herb usually employed in the preparation of some dishes. But it is also great as a homemade medicine.
Basil regulates blood pressure, reduces cholesterol and blood sugar levels, cleanses the blood, detoxes the body, reduces anxiety, and prevents cancer. The herb is also a strong anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antibacterial.
This tiny leaf is excellent to boost your memory. If you need help to remember that, take two tablespoons of basil, twice a day.
And, if all those benefits weren’t enough to you, basil extract will help you sleep better. How incredible is that?
But since it has antipyretic action, basil also helps alleviate symptoms of fever and stabilizes the body temperature.
Note that this treatment is only recommended for fevers below 100 F.
If your fever is higher than that, immediately seek a doctor and follow the treatment indicated by the professional.
Diabetic, lactose-intolerant people, pregnant or nursing women, children, and infants must not consume this natural medicine without a doctor’s approval.
