What is a Diaphoretic?
Diaphoretic is an herbal action that induces perspiration/sweating in order to normalize the body temperature and relieve fever. This action is also employed for the management of health and to prevent diseases that occur due to the accumulation of excessive waste and moisture in the body. It includes the diseases of various organs, such as the brain, heart, respiratory tract, gastrointestinal tract, musculoskeletal, skin, kidneys, and the cases that involve bites and poisoning.
