10 Herbs That Help Manage Fever & How To Use Them | GrowingUpHerbal.com

Fever. It’s something we’ve all experienced.

A fever is a friend and the sign of a healthy immune system. It helps the body by making it an uncomfortable environment for viruses and bacteria to thrive in. But never mind a fever’s good intentions because there are times when it doesn’t feel much like a friend.

An Eco-Friendly Way To Teach Your Kids Science - Green Kid Crafts Discovery Box Review | GrowingUpHerbal.com
