Pneumonia is a lung infection which is caused by bacteria, viruses, or fungi. It can make you extremely sick. Before the rise of the antibiotics, almost 1/3 of the population in the world suffered and died from pneumonia.
Nowadays, over 3 million people got infected with pneumonia on a daily basis. Moreover, over 500,000 of them are hospitalized for additional treatment. Although the majority of them recover, 5% of them die from this infection.
Pneumonia is the 6th leading cause of death in the world. The main reason of its occurrence is the streptococcus pneumoniae. In the first phase of this infection, it is characterized with fever, shaking chills, and secretion of rust-colored sputum. In 20% of the cases, pneumonia expands into the blood and when this happens, 30% of the patients die.
Antibiotics as treatment
Most of the people use antibiotics such as amoxicillin, clavulanic acid (Augmentin), and penicillin for treatment of pneumonia. Moreover, they use macrolide antibiotics like clarithromycin, erythromycin, and azithromycin, too. However, since recently, the majority of people turn to the alternative medicine to treat pneumonia.
For centuries, oregano oil has been used in the Middle Eastern cultures for treatment of infections, chronic inflammation, urinary tract infections, dysentery, and jaundice. According to experts, oregano oil has powerful antibacterial properties which provide therapeutic benefits thanks to their high content of minerals, such as manganese, calcium, potassium, magnesium, copper, zinc, and boron. You just need to consume 3 drops of Oregano Oil on a daily basis. You can also combine it with some orange juice. You will spot the significant improvements within a few hours. Repeat this procedure for 5 days until you get rid of all of the symptoms.
Another effective home remedy is baking soda. It breaks down proteins and neutralizes the acids. It maintains the pH balance in the bloodstream, which is of an essential importance to sustain life. It’s also one of the most important body processes.
The pH measures the amount of hydrogen ions in the body. It varies from 0-14. The neutral pH is 7. Everything higher than this indicator is basic, and everything which is lower is acidic. An alkaline environment attracts the hydrogen ions whereas the acidic pH cannot attracts the hydrogen ions. Hydrogen ions secure balance in our body.
Therefore, to prevent ourselves from illnesses and diseases, we need to maintain an alkaline pH which varies between 7.3 and 7.4. This neutral environment will kill bacteria and viruses that are responsible for colds, bronchitis, and pneumonia. All of us know that they thrive in an acidic environment. To sum up, maintain a proper pH value to destroy the pathogens.
Consuming a mixture consisting of baking soda and potassium fights a respiratory infection and its symptoms such as runny nose and sore throat. Make a neutralizer consisting of 2 drops of liquid sodium bicarbonate and water, twice a day and you will eliminate pneumonia, asthma, and sinusitis.
You can use baking soda in numerous ways. You can either dissolve it in hot water to calm down the itchiness of poison ivy and sunburn, or you can make a paste consisting of water and then put it on your skin to relieve pain from the bee stings.
