If you’re looking on how to get rid of Pneumonia, here’s a couple of suggestions. Pneumonia is an infection of the lungs, usually caused by a virus or bacteria. It is notorious for being deadly among elderly populations and infants.

Recently, outbreaks in developed countries like the United States and Canada have had healthcare professionals concerned, but fortunately we have these natural remedies available so you can treat the infection at home.

1. Eat More Vegetable Proteins.

Animal-based proteins are hard to digest, especially when your body is fighting off an infection. When you’re sick, it’s important to get as much protein as possible from vegetable-based sources. Spinach, broccoli, and quinoa are all protein-packed plant-based foods that also have the advantage of being high in fibre, which helps keep you regular – another important thing when you’re sick.


2. Try A Grape Cleanse.

This cleanse was developed by Dr. Elliot M. Hass, M.D., as a means of clearing out the lungs. Combine eating only grapes or drinking freshly-squeezed grape juice with a tablespoon of olive oil twice daily and a morning and evening laxative tea to keep your intestines active, and maintain this diet for five to seven days, adding a glass of lemonade if the flavor of the grapes becomes too sweet – the grape juice will act as a tonic for your lungs, clearing out mucus and bacteria.

3. Take Pleurisy Root.

Pleurisy root has a long history of being used to treat respiratory infections such as pneumonia, bronchitis, and influenza. A natural anti-inflammatory and stimulant, it helps reduce the inflammation of the lungs and stimulates the lymphatic system, encouraging the secretion of healthy lung fluids.

4. Try This Garlic and Onion Drink.

Finely chop 4 to 6 garlic cloves and half an onion and blend it 8 to 10 ounces of water and 2 teaspoons of honey. Drink this in the morning, about half an hour before you eat your first meal, as well as throughout the day if you feel congested, to help open your bronchial passage and ease your coughing.

Alimax, a neutraceutical that uses the active ingredient in garlic, alicin, is also a good natural remedy along these lines – unlike prescription antibiotics, which kill both good and bad bacteria, alicin targets bad bacteria while preserving good bacteria.

5. Take Oil Of Oregano.

More effective than most common antibiotic treatments in fighting off the bacteria Staphylococcus Aureus, oil of oregano contains vitamin and nutrients required by the immune system to fight off infection. It is a natural decongestant and histamine reducer with direct benefits for the respiratory passage and nasal passage.

Well worth stocking in your medicine cabinet, oil of oregano has many health benefits – many people experience a decrease in pneumonia symptoms simply with the daily application of a teaspoon of oil of oregano and a teaspoon of coconut oil directly to the chest.
