When one or both of the lungs are infected with a virus, fungi or bacteria, then pneumonia appears. Almost 1/3 of people who had pneumonia in the past died because of it, because medicines weren’t discovered then. Nowadays, almost 3 million people have pneumonia every year. Even half a million of the diagnosed patients are sent to hospital for a suitable treatment. Nowadays, they mostly recover, but still there are 5% of them who die because of pneumonia.
Streptococcus pneumoniae is one thing that mostly causes bacterial pneumonia. The illness usually appears abruptly with symptoms like fever, rust-colored sputum appears as well as shaking chills. In almost 20 or 30% of the cases this kind of a dangerous infection spreads in their blood. This condition is called sepsis. 20 or 30% of the patients die.
Antibiotics which are used as treatment
The most commonly used antibiotics for the treatment of pneumonia include amoxicillin, penicillin and clavulanic acid (Augmentin), but also the macrolide antibiotics like azithromycin, clarithromycin and erythromycin. Previously, doctors prescribed only penicillin for this kind of infection, but as medicine advanced, more and more antibiotics appeared which have a very broad spectrum of uses. There are doctors who would still prescribe penicillin, but they must be very careful with this because some patients can be allergic to penicillin. In that case, another type of antibiotic is being prescribed to them.
This Will Happen To Your Lungs If You Drink A Glass Of Water With 3 Drops of Oregano Oil!
The Middle Eastern and Far Eastern cultures have already been using oregano oil for numerous centuries. Its primary use was to fight chronic inflammation, respiratory infections, dysentery, infections of the urinary tract and jaundice. Oregano oil is abundant in antibacterial properties which are very strong and act against pathogens that can be transferred through food. Medicinal oregano is high in minerals like: copper, calcium, zinc, boron, magnesium, manganese and potassium.
It’s considered to be safe for people to use along with any antibiotic. Use it in case of sore throat or cold! Just mix 3 drops of oregano oil in a glass of water or orange juice. The first results will appear after several hours. Repeat this procedure once a day every day for 5 days in a row or until you’ve noticed that the symptoms have disappeared.
Another thing which can be used as a remedy at home is baking soda or otherwise called sodium bicarbonate. This substance can be found naturally in every single living thing. It breaks down proteins and neutralizes acids. The best purpose it has is to keep a proper pH balance in our bloodstream.
We need that to sustain our life. Our body pH has the ability to measure the number hydrogen ions have and are in solution within our body. The proper scale for pH is from 0 to 14. The pH which is balanced or neutral is 7. If the pH is higher, then it’s called basic and if it’s lower, it’s called acidic. The pH which is acidic contains an ability which is very low so that it can attract hydrogen ions. A solution which is alkaline solution can attract hydrogen ions because its ability is high.
“p” means potential and “H” means hydrogen e.g. what is the proper potential for our body to be able to attract hydrogen ions so that we can be healthy and balanced.
An alkaline pH is between 7.3 and 7.4. All of us should strive to obtain it since it will help us be free of any illness or disease. When our pH is increased, we also increase the ability our immune system has to kill various bacteria. Colds and bronchitis are caused by bacteria and viruses which live in an acidic environment. The only thing that will destroy these pathogens is if you increase the pH levels.
If you have symptoms like sore throat and runny nose which resemble a respiratory infection, you can take an alkalizing mixture that you’ll prepare with potassium bicarbonate and sodium bicarbonate. It will also help you against sinusitis, pneumonia and asthma. Prepare some nebulizer with 2 drops of liquid sodium bicarbonate and some water. Use it 2 or 3 times a day.
Baking soda is an excellent acid neutralizer so it has been used as a first-aid agent for a very long time. You can also dissolve some of it into lukewarm bath to help you against the poison ivy itch as well as soothe sunburns. You can also prepare a paste with a little bit of cold water and baking soda to relieve the pain caused by bee stings. Mix ½ of a teaspoon of baking soda with 120 ml (4 ounces) of water and you have a real antacid!
