Living Traditionally

Pneumonia is an infection of one or both lungs which is usually caused by bacteria, viruses, or fungi. Prior to the discovery of antibiotics, one-third of all people who developed pneumonia subsequently died from the infection. Currently, over 3 million people develop pneumonia each year. Over half a million of these people are admitted to a hospital for treatment. Although most of these people recover, approximately 5% will die from pneumonia. Pneumonia is also known to be the 6th leading cause of death worldwide.

The most common cause of a bacterial pneumonia is Streptococcus pneumoniae. In this form of pneumonia, there is usually an abrupt onset of the illness with shaking chills, fever, and production of a rust-colored sputum. The infection spreads into the blood in 20%-30% of cases (known as sepsis), and if this occurs, 20%-30% of these patients die.


Antibiotics as treatment

Antibiotics often used in the treatment of this type of pneumonia include penicillin, amoxicillin and clavulanic acid (Augmentin), and macrolide antibiotics including erythromycin, azithromycin, and clarithromycin. Penicillin was formerly the antibiotic of choice in treating this infection. With the advent and widespread use of broader-spectrum antibiotics, significant drug resistance has developed. Penicillin may still be effective in treatment of pneumococcal pneumonia, but it should only be used after cultures of the bacteria confirm their sensitivity to this antibiotic.
Add 3 Drops of Oregano Oil to Water and SEE What Happens to Your Lungs

Oregano oil been used for centuries in Far Eastern and Middle Eastern cultures to treat respiratory infections, chronic inflammation, urinary tract infections, dysentery, and jaundice. Laboratory studies in which the oil was applied directly to food-borne pathogens showed that oregano oil has strong antibacterial properties (Dadalioglu I et al 2004). Medicinal oregano has a high mineral content that enhances its therapeutic benefits, including calcium, magnesium, zinc, potassium, copper, boron, and manganese. This oil is considered safe for humans and may be used in conjunction with antibiotics to fight bacterial infection (Preuss HG et al 2005).It is also known as an excellent early defense mechanism when you feel cold or sore throat coming on.

Simply take 3 drops of Oregano Oil once per day (you can mix it into a glass of orange juice) and you should notice results within a few hours. Repeat this once per day for up to 5 days until the symptoms are gone.

Baking Soda (also known as sodium bicarbonate) is also use as home remedy. It is a substance that is found naturally in all living things. It acts to neutralize acids and break down proteins.Its purpose is to maintain pH balance in the bloodstream, which is necessary to sustain life. Take note that, one of the most important processes in our body is the process by which the pH balance is maintained. Body pH measures the number of hydrogen ions in solution within the body. The pH scale ranges from 0-14. The neutral or balanced pH is 7. Anything lower is acidic and anything higher is basic. An acidic pH has a low ability to attract hydrogen ions, while an alkaline solution has a high ability to attract hydrogen ions.

If you wonder, “p” stands for potential and “H” stands for hydrogen; henceforth, the potential of the body to attract hydrogen ions to secure balance and health.

If we keep our body with an alkaline pH between 7.3 and 7.4 we will remain free of disease. And by raising pH increases the immune system’s ability to kill bacteria. Since Viruses and bacteria that cause bronchitis and colds and secondary infection such as pneumonia, thrive in an acidic environment, rising the pH will destroy this pathogens.

To fight a respiratory infection and dampen symptoms such as a runny nose and sore throat, taking an alkalizing mixture of sodium bicarbonate and potassium bicarbonate will certainly help. and to reverse pneumonia, asthma, sinusitis, do some nebulizer with water and two drops of liquid sodium bicarbonate, 2 or 3 times a day.

As an acid neutralizer, baking soda has long been favored for its various first-aid applications. Dissolved into a lukewarm bath, it will soothe the discomfort of sunburn and the itch of poison ivy. Made into a paste with cool water and applied directly to the skin, it will ease the pain of bee stings. One-half teaspoon baking soda mixed into 4 ounces (120 ml) of water can be taken as an antacid.

    “the oil was applied directly on the pathogens… showed that oregano oil has strong antibacterial properties”

    unless you have long fingers that can reach the bacteria in the lungs, this won’t be helpful

      Perhaps not, but you might be surprised. Barring an allergic reaction, it certainly couldn’t hurt to try.

      Besides, just because their isn’t much literature concerning the efficacy of natural remedies in mainstream medical literature doesn’t mean much. Funding for such studies is scarce and positive results—when yielded—are often suppressed simply because most natural remedies are herbal/plant-based, and thus not patentable.

      • Morgana Le Fay

        Many modern drugs are derived from plants/herbs, but the process involves isolating the chemical compounds in the plant they believe have the desired effect and then synthetically replicating them in concentrated forms (which is patentable). However, what is often overlooked is that the desired compounds typically work synergistically with other chemicals in the plant that render them more effective, and thus have a more holistic approach to addressing the ailment.

          there is a lot to unpack, but i agree for the most part.

          This oregano oil study is just putting droplets in a petri dish and see if bacteria grow.. Eating oregano oil means digesting it and who knows if the active ingredient is still there before it is poop. The disgistive system might have broken the active ingredient down. Then it is also a thing of how much is needed to be effective.

          So there is drug delivery problems and no idea how it works in a body.

          I can do the same with arsenic in a petri dish. it kills bacteria and for any infection, just chew apple seeds. it contains natural arsenic.

          And most compounds don’t need synergy. Like aspirine, or any of the antibiotics. they all function perfectly when filtered as a single compound from their natural sources.

          • Man

            oops apple seeds don’t have arsenic… they have cyanide… i always mix the 2

    • TuffENuff

      Not true. Oregano oil works as a systemic antibiotic. It’s quite strong and works very fast. It can also take out some of the stomach’s good bacteria, so I take it with probiotics to keep disgestive balance in tact.

    What protects my lungs and sinuses is mornings taking a 400 mg capsule of the NOW brand quercetin dihydrate. This is the best value I could find for quercetin and it also contains bromelain. I used to catch a chest cold every winter until I started taking quercetin. I highly recommend quercetin and many brands only contain 250 mg per capsule although that would probably be enough to protect one’s lungs.
    I realized that quercetin also gives me energy when I tried stopping taking quercetin for a month last January and my sinuses got congested but the day I restarted taking quercetin, my nose ran all afternoon but it was just the quercetin clearing my sinuses.

    Peppermint oil is also excellent. I have used it for years to clear stuffy nose, throat, and head. Put a couple drops in a cup half filled with HOT water. Put a piece of cardboard over the cup. Push the cardboard back slowly, just a bit and breath in the vapor alternating with your nose and mouth and hold it in for a few seconds before releasing. Works every time and knocks out the virus/bacteria or whatever before it gets a chance to fester. Get a strong peppermint oil though, not a watered down version. When you are done, drink the rest of the water. Repeat as necessary.

    if you breath the vapors of the oil of oregano into your throat/lungs, you will think you are gonna die! :eek:


    Any article that starts ranting about the magical ph, is useless, unless you specify what part of the body, or fluid you are measuring. The blood has a tiny range of ph, and if you are outside of that tiny range, you are dead, or dying. The urine ph can be affected by what you eat, or drink. In general, all of the alkalize your body stuff is magical thinking.
    Oregano oil, is probably harmless, but probably also useless when you are putting 3 drops into a glass of water.

    “Add 3 Drops of Oregano Oil to Water…” and you’ll regret reading this article. Lemon juice cures leprosy, ginger cures AIDS, and ingesting silver will (hopefully) not turn you blue. Carry on.
