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.

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.

Spice Your Way to Health

It’s a myth that if a food is good for us, it probably tastes like cardboard. For proof, we need look no further than the beneficial properties of herbs and spices. In fact, a new study reveals that frequent consumption of spicy-hot foods may reduce all-cause mortality and, in some cases, cause-specific mortality.

The study, which followed a prospective cohort of 487,375 participants, aged 30-79, living in China, determined that spicy food consumption was inversely associated with total mortality, after adjustment for other potential risk factors. (Risk factors controlled for included marital status, age, level of education and physical activity.) Compared to individuals who ate spicy foods less than once a week, the adjusted hazard ratios for death were 0.90 (95% CI, interval 0.84 – 0.96), 0.86 (0.80 – 0.92), and 0.86 (0.82 – 0.90) for those who consumed spicy food 1 or 2, 3 to 5, and 6 to 7 days per week, respectively. (The absolute mortality rates were 6.1, 4.4, 4.3, and 5.8 deaths per 1000 person-years for subjects who ate spicy foods less than once a week, 1 or 2, 3 to 5, and 6 or 7 days per week, respectively.)

Participants who consumed spicy foods 6 or 7 days a week showed a 14% reduction in relative risk for total mortality, compared to those who ate spicy foods less than once per week. When alcohol consumption was looked at as an additional factor, the seemingly beneficial influence of spicy foods on mortality was stronger in non-drinkers. Regarding cause-specific mortality, inverse associations were noted between spicy food consumption and deaths due to cancer, respiratory diseases, and ischemic heart diseases.

It is important to note that this was an observational study, based on food frequency questionnaires, which are known to be somewhat unreliable. Nevertheless, the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and potentially chemo-protective properties of popular culinary spices and herbs, such as ginger, turmeric (curcumin), rosemary, oregano, black pepper and hot chili peppers are well established.

Another way spicy foods might confer health benefits is by helping to induce the secretion of digestive enzymes and fortify the brush border of the small intestine. With an ever-expanding list of chronic health conditions being linked to poor digestive function, it may well be that the influence of spices on the digestive system could be the reason behind the decreased all-cause mortality found in the Chinese study. Better overall digestive function leads to more complete breakdown of foods and better absorption of nutrients, which can influence health positively throughout the whole body. A study in rats indicated that black pepper, red pepper and ginger extracts stimulated brush border enzymes in the jejunum. They also led to beneficial changes in the structure of the intestine; specifically, there was an increase in the length of micro-villi, thereby increasing the absorptive surface, and, ultimately, enhancing the extraction of nutrients from food.

Piperine, from black pepper, stimulates the secretion of pancreatic digestive enzymes and reduces gastrointestinal transit time. Ginger has been recognized since ancient times for its influence on healthy digestion, and is often included in teas formulated to alleviate an upset stomach. Mixtures that included turmeric, red chili, black pepper and cumin were shown to enhance the activity of pancreatic lipase, amylase and chymotrypsin in rats by 40%, 16% and 77%, respectively. This mixture also stimulated increased production of bile, with a greater concentration of active bile acid. In rats fed a high-fat diet, ginger, piperine, capsaicin and curcumin enhanced secretion of bile and pancreatic enzymes. Moreover, they also prevented the accumulation of triglycerides in the liver, and reduced the activity of lipogenic enzymes, while increasing activity of hormone-sensitive lipase, which is instrumental in releasing fatty acids from fat cells in order to be burned as fuel elsewhere.

Beyond the fact that spices, themselves, have beneficial effects, these effects might be compounded by the likelihood that the spices were added to healthful, nutritious foods cooked at home, in lieu of processed foods that are high in sugar, refined grains, and vegetable oils. So it may be that people who frequently consume spicy foods consume these spices in the context of a diet that would be healthful even without the spices. For example, a curry stew made with fish, or grass-fed lamb, organic vegetables, coconut milk, and lots of turmeric, ginger, cayenne, and other spices, may influence health differently than, say, spicy-hot chicken wings eaten with a side of fries and washed down with a beer
