Pneumonia

Pneumonia refers to the inflammation of the lungs. It is one of the most serious infectious diseases. Pneumonia needs to be treated by the medical professionals at the very first occurrence of the ailment, otherwise it may prove fatal. The home remedies are meant for comfort and relief for the patient not for curing the infection. So, while these remedies are applied these should be taken in account as a supportive process of the medicinal treatment.



Pneumonia
During the early acute stage of pneumonia, a tea made from fenugreek seeds will help the body to produce perspiration, dispel toxicity, and shorten the period of fever. Up to four cups of the tea can be taken daily. The quantity can be reduced as the condition improves. To improve the flavor of the tea, a few drops of lemon juice may be added.

Other Remedies
Pneumonia
  • Take a thick cloth and make four folds of it. Between the third and fourth fold, spread a layer of turmeric. Now mix this turmeric in lukewarm water and sprinkle over the cloth to make it partially wet. Now put this cloth on the chest of the patient, heat a brick and put it over the chest of the patient to stimulate his chest.
  • Also take 1 gm of black pepper, five cloves and 1 gm of edible soda. Boil it in 15 ml of water. When it is drinkable, make the patient drink it by sipping for early relief.
  • Another good herbal remedy for pneumonia. The main thing that it does is that it brings down the body temperature, thereby helping you to cure pneumonia. A paste of garlic can also be applied externally on the chest, which will do the same work when taken orally.
  • Sesame seeds can also act as a good herbal treatment for pneumonia. Take out an extract of sesame seeds, by steeping 15 gm of seeds in 250 ml of water. A mixture of this extract, a tablespoon of linseed, a pinch of common salt and a dessertspoon of honey, can be given to the suffering patient everyday.
