[TCM & Health 3] How to deal with infantile fever? Shang San Guan


Infantile fever is a very common phenomenon. Many parents choose to use antipyretic medication as soon as their children get a fever but ignore the negative effects of the medicine. As a matter of fact, a fever is the body's normal immune response and helps the white blood cells counteract with bacterial toxins. Now let's learn to how to deal with infantile fever caused by cold.


As people's living standard improves, children eat a lot of food full of protein such as milk, meat and seafood. These kinds of food increase the heat in a child's body, making it easier for them to suffer from cold and fever. At this time, parents should help their child to sweat which rids them of cold and extra heat, in order to bring down a fever. Using a baby massage technique called Shang San Guan can also be very effective.


Shang San Guan is the line from the rasceta (creases across one's wrist at the base of their palm) to the elbow at the front of a child's forearm. Using the thumb or index and middle finger to push from the wrist to the elbow is the method of Pushing Shang San Guan or Pushing San Guan. If you do it 100 to 300 times a day, the technique can help your child sweat and rid themselves of fever.
