Since I have not had a fever for years, I honestly had never heard of it until recently:

Fah Talai Jone has long been known as a medicinally effective plant in Thailand. Traditionally, a tea is made from the plant, which should help with fever and infections, among other things.

This tea is extreme (I mean EXTREME) bitter, which is why capsules are mostly used today. The plant that actually Kalmegh or Andrographis paniculata is also under the name King of Bitters or Green Chiretta famous.

Kalmegh actually comes from India and Sri Lanka, but also grows in Malaysia and Thailand, for example.

How does Kalmegh work?

In Ayurvedic medicine, the plant to protect the liver and respiratory tract used. Antipyretic and cleansing effects are assumed, which weaken the course of the disease and should contribute to the faster resolution of the disease.
