The medical statistics show us that the estimated number of people suffering from pneumonia nowadays is more than 3 million annually. Pneumonia is actually an inflammation of the tissue in the lungs often caused by an infection due to viruses, fungi or bacteria.
This disease was that serious prior to the discovery of the antibiotics, and almost one-third of all sufferers ended up dead. The percentage of those who die today decreases to 5%, but it is huge and it makes pneumonia the 6th major death cause in the world.
It appears in different conditions, but the most common are streptococcus pneumonia, which leads to symptoms like fever, shaking chills, and rust-colored mucus. The infection spreads to the blood very fast and in 20 to 30 percent and causes sepsis, with 20-30% mortality rate.
The usual treatment of pneumonia is by penicillin, clavulanic acid or Augmentin, amoxicillin, and macrolide antibiotics (erythromycin, clarithromycin, and azithromycin).
Today, the widespread of antibiotics has led to an enormous drug resistance, why it is suggested that all patient tests the sensitivity to the antibiotic before it is being used.
In order to avoid any problem that antibiotics can cause, especially its resistance many people are using alternative ways to heal that dangerous disease. One of the methods that have been used for a long period is treating pneumonia by oregano oil, which is very effective in the treatment of dysentery, respiratory infections, jaundice, chronic inflammation, and urinary tract infection, too. It has the potent antibacterial properties that have been confirmed by many studies.
In addition, this oil is rich in minerals like copper, boron, zinc, potassium, calcium, manganese, and magnesium. When it comes to its safety, research has shown that it doesn’t cause any side effects, even when paired with antibiotics to treat infections.
Its effectiveness is especially seen in preventing colds and flu.
How to use:
Only 3 drops of this oil daily, for instance, added a cup of orange juice will do the job. However, you shouldn’t use it longer than 5 days, but its effects will be significant and the symptoms will be entirely treated.
Treat pneumonia by baking soda:
It is another effective treatment for pneumonia because baking soda neutralizes acids and breaks down proteins. Baking soda is also known for balancing the pH levels in the blood.
Because the alkaline environment can attract hydrogen ions, in contrary to the acidic one it is very important to take measures to make your body more alkaline, as it will make it stronger and enhance the immune system to fight bacteria.
Balancing the pH levels is of high importance, as the body will be able to combat pathogens like bacteria and viruses, which cause pneumonia, bronchitis, and colds.
The recommended combination of the sodium bicarbonate and potassium bicarbonate will help to alkalize the environment and treat a sore throat, respiratory infections, and a runny nose.
There is another effective combination of some water and 2 drops of liquid sodium bicarbonate in a spray bottle that should be used 2-3 times daily to reverse asthma, sinusitis, and pneumonia.
