Chills and Fatigue

Posted by Shari on 08/03/2007

Dear Ted, I have had chills for approx. 6 weeks.I am not feverish, although I do feel very fatigued, unwell & it's gone on so long it's starting to effect my positive outlook. I take a Multi-Supplement, B, complex, 2000 of vitamin C, Calcium and Magnesium. The newer things I'm trying are oil pulls, ACV-Honey-Cayenne Pepper & have increased my garlic capsules to approximately 4000 mg. a day. My health had felt better than it had since a back surgery, resulting from a freak accident 15 months ago, by adding the natural cures. My blood pressure is great, in large part due to the garlic caps. I believe this started when I went out of my country and caught a very bad stomach virus. Since then I have had 2 urinary tract infections and more stomach problems. I think the infections may be cured, but the chills and fatigue are continuing and even worsening. Please if you any suggestions I'd be so grateful.

Shari: Chills are viral in nature. So I would consider taking zinc gluconate and the other one that helped me was either cinnamon toothpicks, or a toothpick soaked clove oil and is dipped in a cup of water. The antiviral nature of the clove or sometimes cinnamon should reduce the chills. However, it is important, at least for me under that condition to add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) in 1/2 glass of water taken twice or sometimes three times a day on an empty stomach. Alkalinity, zinc and clove are antiviral in nature and has helped me on many ocassions. However, in event of a chill or virus, I prefer to avoid oil pulling since body whenever it has the chills needs to reduce the oil or fat load, and is required whenever the body has the chills.
