Today pneumonia can be treated with antibiotics but in the past this disease that is caused by fungi, bacteria or virus that affects either one or the two lungs was a fatality to more than one-third of sufferers.
It is estimated that more than 3 million individuals come down with this infection annually with more than 1.5 million sufferers being admitted for treatment in clinics with about 5% of these patients likely to die from this infection giving pneumonia the ominous label as the sixth major cause of fatality in the whole world.
Streptococcus pneumoniae is the main bacteria that is responsible for pneumonia and it is occasioned by a sudden fever and chills causing violent shivering. It is known that in about 20 to 30% of pneumonia cases sepsis occurs where the disease gets into the patient’s bloodstream leading to death.
As mentioned earlier antibiotics have been used to treat pneumonia and the most commonly used antibiotics include:
Broad spectrum antibiotics such as;
clavulanic acid (Augmentin)
Macrolide antibiotics such as:
These broad spectrum antibiotics have proven to be more effective in the treatment of pneumonia than penicillin which was initially used as a result of the advent of penicillin resistant bacteria strains.
However, antibiotics have the unpleasant habit of destroying both the micro-organisms causing the pneumonia and healthy cells.
You can treat pneumonia naturally today using a mixture of a couple of drops of oregano oil and water to derive an effective solution.

How To Use Oregano Oil To Treat Pneumonia
In the treatment of pneumonia all you need to do is…
Consume just 3 drops of your oregano oil daily mix with water or if you prefer mix it in just one glass of organic orange juice.
You should consume this only once daily over a period of 5 days.
Within this time you will notice significant improvements in your health as the pneumonia symptoms will dissipate.
Other Natural Pneumonia Treatment
You can also treat pneumonia using sodium bicarbonate or otherwise known as baking soda.
It does this by reducing the acidity of the body and making the body more alkaline in nature and in effect making the body difficult for the micro-organisms causing the pneumonia infection to thrive while boosting the body’s immune system and its strength to combat the micro-organisms.
You can consume 1/2 a teaspoon of baking soda mixed in 120 ml or 4 ounces of clean drinking water daily to combat symptoms of pneumonia and other respiratory problems.
