Pneumonia is an inflammation of the airspaces in the lung most commonly caused by infections. Bacteria, viruses, or fungi (infrequently) can cause the infection.
Prior to the discovery of the antibiotics, one-third of all sufferers of this disease ended up dead. Today, most of the patients recover, but 5% still die, making pneumonia the 6th major death cause in the world.
Streptococcus pneumoniae (the pneumococcus) is the classic example of a highly invasive, Gram-positive, extracellular bacterial pathogen. It is a major cause of morbidity and mortality globally causing more deaths than any other infectious disease. This infection spreads to the blood in 20 to 30 percent of the cases, causing sepsis, with 20-30% mortality rate.
The treatment of pneumonia most commonly involves penicillin, amoxicillin, clavulanic acid or Augmentin, and macrolide antibiotics, such as erythromycin, clarithromycin, and azithromycin.
Yet, the common and widespread of antibiotics has led to a huge drug resistance. Therefore, it is suggested that the patient tests the sensitivity to the antibiotic before it is being used.
On the other hand, oregano oil has been used in the treatment of dysentery, respiratory infections, jaundice, chronic inflammation, and urinary tract infection in the Middle East and its potent antibacterial properties have been confirmed by many studies.
Additionally, this oil is rich in minerals like copper, zinc, boron, calcium, potassium, manganese, and magnesium. Research has shown that it is absolutely safe for human use, even when paired with antibiotics to treat infections.
It effectively prevents flu and colds. All you need to do is to take 3 drops daily of this oil in some drink, for instance, in a cup of orange juice. This treatment should not last for more than 5 days, after which the symptoms will be entirely treated.
Baking soda is another effective pneumonia treatment, as it neutralizes acids and breaks down proteins. It also regulates and maintains the pH balance of the blood.
The alkaline environment can attract hydrogen ions, in contrary to the acidic one. The more alkaline the body is, the stronger the immune system is to fight bacteria.
Increasing the pH levels if of high importance, therefore, as the body will be able to combat pathogens like bacteria and viruses, which cause bronchitis, pneumonia, and colds.
You should combine sodium bicarbonate and potassium bicarbonate to alkalize the environment and treat respiratory infections, sore throat, and a runny nose.
Furthermore, you can mix some water and 2 drops of liquid sodium bicarbonate in a spray bottle and use it 2-3 times daily to reverse sinusitis, asthma, and pneumonia.
