20 Natural Ways to Get Rid of Pneumonia (No. 5 is An Effective Alternative to Antibiotic Treatments)

by DailyHealthPost Editorial


13. Breathing Exercises.

Breathing exercises increase blood flow and help detox your body, as well as training your lungs for better overall health. Try the following exercise eight times daily: inhale deeply and hold your breath for two or three seconds, then fully exhale, keeping your abdominal muscles relaxed and allowing your diaphragm to descend. Your lungs will fill with air as your diaphragm descends, expanding your abdomen.

14. Apply a Mustard Plaster To Your Chest.

Mix two tablespoons of mustard powder, two eggs, six tablespoons of coconut flour and a cup of water until it forms a paste, then apply the paste to your chest and let it sit for 20 minutes. This helps brings the toxins in your lungs to the surface so they can leave your body. Obviously this should only be tried if you have no allergies to eggs or mustard, as those are the main ingredients in the plaster. Repeat this process twice a week.

15. Take IV Vitamin C.

Typically administered by homoeopathic doctors, IV Vitamin C is safe even in high doses and has virtually no side effects, unlike commonly used prescription drugs. Vitamin C is vital both in the treatment and prevention of diseases like pneumonia, and does not harm healthy cells, working through an array of enzymatic and metabolic reactions.


16. Take a Sauna or Steam Bath.

At least once a week, sit in a hot sauna or steam bath for 20 minutes. This opens your pores so that toxins can be released through your skin. If you don’t have access to a sauna or steam bath, try adding 10 to 20 drops of eucalyptus oil to a hot bath.

17. Oil Pulling.

Relatively effortless compared to other methods of detoxification, oil pulling involves swishing coconut oil in the mouth for about 20 minutes before spitting it out. This is done before meals, usually three times daily, and works the same way that cleaning soaps work. Oil pulling attracts germs and bacteria to “pull” them out of your mouth, cleaning your gum line without damaging your gums. Oil pulling has been credited with healing a variety of ailments such as headaches, bronchitis, thrombosis, ulcers, and intestinal diseases.

18. Drink Cranberry/Apple Juice.

Drinking a glass of organic cranberry/apple juice with breakfast instead of solid foods helps add antioxidants to your system.

19. Drink Thyme Tea.

Thyme has been used to treat lung disease for many years, including bacterial infection pneumonia. Thyme works by producing powerful antiseptic essential oils, which are natural antibiotics and anti-fungal agents. It works well on either viral or bacterial infections.

20. Nasal Treatment.

Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil and add 5 to 10 drops of eucalyptus oil to the water. Place a bath towel over your head and, positioning yourself over the pot, breath in the steam from the boiling water until the water is room temperature or the steam subsides.
