What if I get a fever? The fever is great because it helps to burn out the infection. But there are a few ways to cool it down. Have you ever heard of putting alcohol on a cotton ball in your belly button? Did you know there are "fever breaking" points on the back of the head? Another self-healing technique is a cooling breath called Sitali Pranayam. This ancient healing technique has been used for thousands of years before things like Tylenol existed. This breathing technique supports the body's ability to release toxins.
