Never say you don't get creative help on this blog.
"In the third century A.D.,the Latin poet Q. Serenus wrote a medical textbook in verse in which he recommends the charm as a cure for fever. As he prescribed it: 'Secretly repeat it often, but subtract the number, and more and more let each component of the form disappear, until it is reduced to a narrow cone: See to it that you wear this [written] on linen around the neck.' And that's exactly what people did for 1,500 years afterward--it was widely used as late as 1665 to combat an outbreak of the plague in England that year."

Few hypnotists will fail to recognize the prescription secretly (which is to say, mentally rather than verbally) to repeat and subtract components as a powerful trance induction.
And your fever disappears, as if by ... magic.
(If, perversely, it does not disappear do not hesitate to consult a good doctor.)

There you go.
For years I wondered if (self) hypnosis helped ward off, or even cure, some ailments. So I took a close look at the techniques used and I believe that it helps enormously. I am very rarely ill.
Is it because I simply tell myself I am well?
I reckon it is.
Give it a try. It could work for you too.
