WAD WINDING How to use them correctly


Fever can be treated using calf compresses, which are a tried and true home cure. We'll go through what you need to remember!

Fever relief with a calf wrap

Fever is a common side effect of infections like the common cold. As a result, if you develop a fever, you should see a doctor find out what's causing it! Calf compresses, when used in conjunction with a doctor's advice, can be a helpful way to relieve pain.

Wrapping your calf has an effect.
 The moist compresses are used to keep the lower legs cool. The autonomic nervous system of the organism is triggered by these chilly stimuli. The sympathetic nervous system stimulates the metabolism, raises blood pressure, and causes breathing to become deeper. The parasympathetic nervous system is triggered when the wraps get warm, providing pain relief and relaxation.

Two cotton or linen cloths, such as cloth diapers or dish towels, are used as utensils. No synthetic fibers, as they might build up the heat!
cotton or linen cloths, two bigger intermediate cloths
one larger outside towel to use as a cover: for instance, Molton cloth
If necessary, use a bed protector, such as wool or terry cloth; do not use plastic.

Important: 
Make sure you use hand-hot water! For youngsters, a temperature of 28 to 32 degrees Celsius is recommended; for adults, a cool water treatment of 16 to 20 degrees Celsius is acceptable. Sweating is disrupted by overly cold water, which inhibits the body's return to normal temperature.
Take your temperature before you start wrapping and again half an hour afterwards!
Keep a close eye on your bed rest!
Wrapping a calf is a technique that is used to wrap a calf.

Place bed protection underneath if necessary. Moisten and wring out inside cloths.

Wrap the towels around both lower legs without creases (ankle to the hollow of the knee).
Wrap the inner sheets in dry intermediate sheets.
Wrap an outer cloth around your legs or place it below.
Allow the calf wrap to work for ten to twenty minutes.
After applying, take a 20-minute pause.
Complete three rounds of this exercise.
If your fever is high, cut down on the time you apply it and the time you take breaks.
Remove the calf compress if the patient is cold!
Calf compresses should not be used on younger children for more than ten minutes.
The wraps must be removed once they have attained skin temperature and no longer feel cold.

Additives to help with calf wraps
Calf wraps can be made more effective by adding chemicals. Vinegar, for example, is ideal for this purpose since it not only soothes and refreshes the skin but also aids the calf wraps in releasing heat. Simply add a few drops of vinegar essence to the water to do this. 5 teaspoons of vinegar essence per liter of water is a good rule of thumb. Another option
 Rule of thumb: five tablespoons of vinegar essence to one liter of water. Alternatively, you can also use healing clay against inflammation. To do this, 
simply spread a thick layer of healing clay on the damp cloths and apply the compresses as described.

When else can I use calf compresses?
Apart from the application in case of fever, calf compresses can also be used in the following cases:

In case of local inflammation, for example of the veins.
After a high load on the legs, for example, after long-standing or running
Tension pain in the legs
in rheumatic attacks
in the case of arthrosis
When should calf wraps not be used?
Do not apply the wraps in case of:
Cold calves
Cold feet and hands
Bladder infection
Rising fever
Chills
In case of strong restlessness
Circulatory problems in the legs
Complaints of the sciatic nerve
In case of questions and uncertainties, always consult your doctor! This also applies if the complaints persist over a longer period of time or even get worse despite the treatments with calf wraps.
