Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, fever is not a disease but only a physiological reaction of the body that arises when there is an infection (bacteria, viruses, fungi, or parasites) that enters the body. The increase in body temperature that occurs when this fever makes the immune system of the human body can work better in fighting infections that enter. Therefore, in fact you do not need to do therapy for fever, unless the fever is indeed very high and causes excessive discomfort in the body. Therapy needs to be aimed at the cause of the fever (the infection) because when the cause of the fever is resolved, the fever will go down by itself.
Regarding the Vitex pinnata plant that you mentioned, the plant is indeed widely used in traditional medicine to treat fever, abdominal pain, tooth pain, and even treat wounds. However, no large studies have been found that can confirm the effectiveness of this plant in overcoming the conditions above, the dosage, or whether or not the consumption of these plants is safe as a medicine. Because it has a mecca of western medicine, doctors will not recommend the use of herbal plants that have not been clearly proven from research separately to treat certain diseases.
If you have a high fever and the fever causes discomfort in your body, you are advised to take a fever medication such as paracetamol which is already known to be effective and safe for dealing with fever.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
