We are in the middle of winter and some people are coming down with colds and flues and sometimes if a person is debilitated that cold or flu can change into pneumonia. Here are some great herbs and supplements for healing pneumonia.
First of all go see your doctor right away if you feel you have pneumonia— because pneumonia can kill. It’s important to do everything that’s possible to heal… including taking herbs and supplements.
Vitamin C – It’s been shown in many scientific trials and tests that lots of different types of bacterial and viral infections can be healed with large doses of Vitamin C. In fact, I have a good friend “Micheal Gonzales” who’s done lots of research into the healing power of Vitamin C and has found Vitamin C can even work to heal cancer. Using large doses of Vitamin C usually intravenously or via liposomal or fat soluble Vitamin C capsules can be a great way to heal pneumonia without hurting gut flora. Even Dr. Linus Pauling talked about the healing power of Vitamin C many years ago. Take up to 3 or 4 thousand mg of vitamin C daily or even more. Those who are sensitive to vitamin C or have kidney disease should not take large doses of Vitamin C. And specialists have given up to 20,000 mg of Vitamin C—IV per hour to heal pneumonia— that’s a lot of Vitamin C.
Soursop Leaf Tea – Soursop leaf tea also has lots of Vitamin C and other antioxidants helping to strengthen the immune system and fight off infections… and scavenge free radicals thus helping to prevent disease. Take 4 fresh or dried soursop leaves and cut them up and add them to a 8 oz cup. Add boiling water to the cup and let set for 15 minutes, then drink. Drink this tea 3 or 4 times a day, dried soursop leaves can be bought on amazon, ebay, and other places on-line.
Mullein Leaf Tea – Mullein leaf tea is also great for getting rid of lots of mucus in the lungs and help to get rid of that thick yellow mucus associated with pneumonia. Add one teaspoon of dried mullein leaves to a cup of hot water and allow to steep for 15 minutes. Then drink — take this tea 4 or up to 5 times a day.
Green Juices – Drinking 3 to 5 cups of green juice daily which contains kale, carrot, cucumber and lemon juice will boost up a person’s immune system to fight off the infection. Boosting up a person’s immune system is the best way to heal.
Elder Berry Juice – A study in 2004 showed significant improvement in flu patients who were given elderberry extract. Elderberry has antioxidant properties and boosts the immune system helping with bacterial and viral infections. Also, contains anthocyanin which is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent. Elderberry also contains Vitamins A, B and C and amino acids, carotenoids, and minerals. Plus elderberry juice and extract can lower cholesterol and especially LDL or bad cholesterol. Elderberry juice also helps lower blood sugar and is effective in treatments of colds, yeast infections, asthma, coughs, pneumonia, and congestion, and protects against cardiovascular and heart diseases. Drink one or two cups of prepared elder berry juice daily.
Astragalus Root Capsules – Astragalus Root is used to as an aid to digestion, raising metabolism, and strengthening the immune system. Good for wound healing and also to increase endurance. It stimulates antibody and white blood cell production, and thus increases resistance to viruses. Astragalus reduces gastric acid and thus helps with stomach ulcers, and helps with breathlessness due to heart disease and helps prevent heart attacks by preventing the formation of clots. And Astragalus Root may also reduce high cholesterol and blood pressure. Take 1 or 2 – 400 mg capsules daily.
Turmeric, Garlic, Ginger – Turmeric, garlic, and ginger are great immune boosting herbs that doesn’t harm gut flora. These herbs can make a huge difference in how we feel when we have pneumonia. Take 4 – 400 mg capsules of whole turmeric 2 or 3 times a day, and also drink 4 cups of ginger tea daily. At the same time eat 3 raw cloves of garlic daily this is the best way to get those natural oils out of the garlic, garlic capsules don’t work as well — garlic is a powerful immune booster.
Fenugreek Capsules – Fenugreek works wonders for asthma, bronchitis, sinus inflammation, colds, flues, and even helps with pneumonia. Fenugreek relieves inflammation and thus opens up airways. This powerful antioxidant keeps cancer away and at the same time helps with removing free radicals and thus can slowing the aging process. Fenugreek is wonderful for lowering fevers and also for getting rid of sore throats… and even soothing away nagging coughs. Take up to 5 – 600 mg capsules of fenugreek AM and PM.
There are lots of other herbs and supplements that might help but these are my top recommendations. Also be sure to check in with your doctor — sometimes there is a need for antibiotics to prevent a person from dying of pneumonia— thus we can rebuild their gut flora later. Always preserve life first!
And of course relax and meditate to get rid of mind/body stress and always eat a Whole Foods Plant Based Diet – See Link to Diet – https://paulhaider.wordpress.com/2013/09/17/the-whole-foods-plant-based-diet-and-life-style/
