October 6, 2019


HELLO FRIENDS. FEVER IS VERY COMMON, SPECIALLY IN RAINY SEASON, SPECIALLY SEEN IN CHILDREN AND THOSE WHO HAVE POOR OR WEEK IMMUNITY. BUT TO TELL YOU, FEVER IS NOT A DISEASE BY ITSELF. FEVER IS YOUR BODY’S REACTION TO FIGHT AGAINST CERTAIN INFECTION OR SICKNESS. FEVER GIVES YOU SYMPTOMS LIKE LACK OF APPETITE, LACK OF INTEREST, WEAKNESS, POOR DIGESTION. SO SYMPTOMS SHOULD BE TREATED WITH THE PROPER DIET AND EVEN TO REPLENISH THE LOSS OF FLUIDS WHICH OCCURS DURING FEVER DUE TO HIGH TEMPERATURES, NEEDS TO BE TREATED OR NEED TO BE TAKEN CARE THROUGH YOUR DIET. SO YOUR DIET SHOULD BE RICH IN PROTEIN, RICH IN FLUIDS, RICH IN VITAMINS LIKE VITAMIN C WHICH HELPS RECOVERY, OMEGA 3 FATS WHICH AGAIN BOOST YOUR IMMUNITY AND ALONG WITH THESE FOODS, YOUR DIET SHOULD BE SOFT IN CONSISTENCY, SHOULD BE VERY PALATABLE BECAUSE YOUR TASTE BUDS NEEDS SOMETHING WHICH IS VERY INTERESTING DURING FEVER TO IMPROVE YOUR INTAKE. SO LETS SEE SOME FOOD RECOMMENDATIONS THROUGH THIS DIET CHART. WHEN YOU WAKE UP, YOU CAN HAVE A CUP OF HERBAL TEA. FOR MAKING HERBAL TEA, YOU CAN USE GINGER, TULSI, CINNAMON POWDER, LEMON GRASS. THESE HERBS ARE HELPFUL FOR RELIEVING COUGH AND ALSO YOU FEEL BETTER AFTER TAKING A CUP OF HERBAL TEA. IN BREAKFAST, YOU CAN HAVE SOME SOFT FOOD LIKE SUJI UPMA OR RAVA UPMA. YOU CAN ALSO HAVE SOME RAGI PORRIDGE OR KHEER WITH MILK. THIS WILL GIVE YOU PROTEINS AS WELL AS THESE FOODS ARE EASY FOR DIGESTION. WITH BREAKFAST YOU CAN HAVE ANY SOFT FRUIT LIKE BANANA OR PAPAYA. IN MID MORNING, YOU CAN HAVE A GLASS OF COCONUT WATER AS WE SAY YOU NEED LOT OF FLUIDS DURING YOUR FEVER. IN LUNCH, YOU CAN HAVE SOFT KHICHADI MADE UP OF MOONG DAL. YOU CAN ALSO HAVE SOME FLAXSEED CHUTNEY. THIS WILL GIVE YOU A GOOD TASTE TO YOUR TASTE BUDS BECAUSE IN FEVER, YOUR TASTE BUDS ARE SLIGHTLY WEAKER, YOU DON”T FEEL LIKE EATING BECAUSE OF FEVER, HIGH TEMPERATURE AND YOU NEED SOMETHING TASTY TO ACCOMPANY WITH YOUR MEALS. YOU CAN ALSO HAVE A BOWL OF SOUP WHEREIN YOU CAN HAVE VEGETABLE SOUP. THOSE WHO ARE NON-VEGETARIAN CAN HAVE A BOWL OF CHICKEN OR BROTH WHICH IS EASY FOR DIGESTION AND ALSO HELPS RELIEF FEVER. BETWEEN YOUR LUNCH AND EVENING SNACKS, YOU CAN AGAIN HAVE A CUP OF HERBAL TEA OR ELSE YOU CAN HAVE A GLASS OF LIME WATER OR KOKUM WATER OR YOU CAN ALSO HAVE ANY FRESHLY MADE FRUIT JUICE. IF YOU HAVE SORE THROAT, THEN AVOID LIME WATER AND CITRUS FRUITS, BUT IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A SORETHROAT AND YOU HAVE FEVER, YOU CAN HAVE SPECIALLY THE FRUITS WHICH ARE CITRUS IN NATURE, THOSE WHO SOUR IN TASTE LIKE LIME WATER OR ORANGE JUICE, SWEET LIME JUICE BECAUSE VITAMIN C HELPS IN RECOVERY. IN THE EVENING SNACKS, YOU CAN HAVE BOWL OF SAGO KANJI OR OATS KANJI. YOU CAN ALSO ACCOMPANY THIS WITH A HANDFUL OF BLACK CURRENTS OR SOAKED FIGS. WHICH WILL GIVE YOU INSTANT ENERGY. IN THE DINNER, IF YOU ARE A NON – VEGETARIAN, YOU CAN HAVE A BOILED EGG. YOU CAN ALSO HAVE A BOILED POTATO WITH BLACK SALT, BLACK PEPPER AND LIME. BOILED POTATO AGAIN GIVES YOU INSTANT ENERGY. ALL THESE HERBS LIKE BLACK PEPPER WILL BE HELPFUL IN RELIEVING COUGH. AT BED TIME, YOU CAN HAVE A GLASS OF WARM MILK. AND ITS GOOD TO ADD A PINCH OF TURMERIC POWDER TO YOUR MILK. TURMERIC IS AGAIN A MEDICINAL HERB OR SPICE WHICH HELPS COUGH RELATED SYMPTOMS. THE TIPS INCLUDE, YOU HAVE TO CONSUME SMALL BUT FREQUENT MEALS THROUGHOUT THE DAY. FOODS RICH IN VITAMIN E AND VITAMIN C SHOULD BE CONSUMED, BECAUSE THEY HELP RECOVERY. SUCH FOODS INCLUDE ALL CITRUS FRUITS, AMLA. VITAMIN E FOODS INCLUDE ALL NUTS AND OIL SEEDS. THESE FOODS WILL GIVE YOU INSTANT ENERGY AS WELL AS THEY ARE PACKED WITH OTHER NUTRIENTS. AVOID OUTSIDE FOOD AND WATER IN ANY CASE. THIS CAN AGGRAVATE THE INFECTION. VEGETARIAN FOOD IS ALWAYS PREFERRED OVER NON – VEGETARIAN FOOD. SPECIALLY RED MEAT. READ MEAT IS DIFFICULT TO DIGEST. IF AT ALL YOU WANT TO HAVE NON – VEGETARIAN FOOD, PREFER A BOILED EGG OR CHICKEN SOUP WHICH WILL HELP YOU COME OUT OF FEVER. AVOID JUNK FOOD, OILY AND SPICY FOOD. SPECIALLY CARBONATED BEVERAGES AND DRINKS. DON’T PRESUME THAT THESE DRINKS WILL REPLENISH FLUIDS, RATHER THESE FLUIDS OR THESE DRINKS WILL TAKE AWAY THE BODY FLUIDS. KEEP YOUR MEALS AS LIGHT AS POSSIBLE. YOUR DIGESTIVE SYSTEM IS COMPTOMIZE DURING FEVER. SO PREFER WELL COOKED, SOFT FOOD OVER RAW FOOD. LAST BUT NOT THE LEAST, DRINK PLENTY OF FLUIDS INCLUDING WATER. PREFER BOILED AND COOLED WATER. AROUND 4 -5 LITERS OF WATER IS ESSENTIAL THROUGHOUT THE DAY TO KEEP YOUR BODY WELL HYDRATED. SO THESE WERE COMMON DIETARY RECOMMENDATIONS TO FOLLOW DURING YOU HAVE FEVER. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO TAKE ADEQUATE REST WITH A PROPER DIET. IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT TO SEE A DOCTOR SPECIALLY IN CASE OF CHILDREN AND SPECIALLY IF YOUR FEVER GOES BEYOND 101 OR 102 DEGREES.
