Natural Cures for Aspergillosis

Last Modified on Jun 18, 2014

While common mold is typically harmless, it can cause concerning health conditions for those with weakened immune systems, asthma, or lung disease. If you have developed such a condition, you not only need to treat the contracted illness but also support your immune system. To do so, we suggest utilizing a holistic approach combining traditional treatment with nutritional support, like oil of oregano, for the best results.

What Is Aspergillosis?

Aspergillosis is the name given to a group of illnesses that are caused by a certain type of mold. The illnesses adversely affect the respiratory system and are typically developed in conjunction with another illness or condition.

The symptoms of aspergillosis vary depending on the type of illness you have; however, several signs are common. If you experience an allergic reaction to the mold, you’ll likely develop a fever, a cough that may bring up blood or mucus plugs, and worsening asthma. You can also develop a fungal mass that causes coughing that brings up blood, wheezing, shortness of breath, unintentional weight loss, and fatigue. Additionally, some forms of the illness present as an infection, which causes fever, chills, cough, severe bleeding from the lungs, shortness of breath, chest or joint pain, nosebleed, facial swelling, and skin lesions.

What Strain of Mold Causes the Illness?

While many forms of mold are harmless, a few are more detrimental. A. flavus, A. niger, and A. fumigatus cause aspergillosis infections most often. These species produce large quantities of oxalic acid as they multiply in the respiratory system, which causes the myriad of symptoms.

Can I Treat Aspergillosis Naturally?

Consulting a licensed physician will help you obtain an accurate diagnosis as well as a treatment plan based on the severity of your condition. However, nutritional supplements and natural treatments are effective supports to any treatment plan. Options such as garlic, olive leaf extract, and coconut oil help fight infection and relieve the system safely and naturally.

1. Garlic

Garlic is a powerful anti-fungal remedy that also has antimicrobial and blood cleansing properties. The allicin in garlic helps destroy the mold in the body and relieves infection quickly.

2. Olive Leaf Extract

Olive leaf extract contains the chemical oleuropein. This chemical has strong anti-fungal properties, so the extract can be used to directly kill mold and other fungi.

3. Coconut Oil

Coconut oil contains lauric, capric, and caprylic acids, which all have strong anti-fungal properties. The oil also stimulates the immune system and serves as a mild laxative, so it flushes the dead mold out of the body.

In addition to these treatments, be sure to eat a balanced diet, drink plenty of water, and do whatever you can to support your immune system. Read below for more recommendations from Earth Clinic readers and let us know what natural remedy worked for you!

I was interested in what Tk from Sydney was discussing in regards to seeing a Chinese herbalist for his wife's Aspergillus. I, also, have Asthma and have suffered from Aspergillus. I have taken the ant-fungal medication but still feel very weak and debilitated. I live in Mosman and was wondering if you knew any good Herbalists in this area? I would appreciate anyone's help as I am at a loss.

Now for the Astragulas info: I just copied this for you
Astragalus is used for the common cold, upper respiratory infections, allergies, fibromyalgia, anemia, HIV/AIDS, and to strengthen and regulate the immune system. It is also used for chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), kidney disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure.

Some people use astragalus as a general tonic, to protect the liver, and to fight bacteria and viruses. Astragalus is commonly used in combination with other herbs. For example, in combination with Ligustrum lucidum (glossy privet), astragalus is used orally for treating breast cancer, cervical cancer, and lung cancer.

What are the health benefits of Astragalus? In addition to its reputation as a whole-body protector, astragalus improves digestion and metabolism. It is used for cases where fatigue, lack of appetite, and diarrhea are present. Also, studies have shown that astragalus stimulates the immune system, and it seems to be particularly useful for those who suffer from frequent colds and flu. Astragalus has been known to help maintain normal functions of the liver, lung, kidney, stomach, and heart, to boost energy, detoxify, improve white blood cell growth, and help reduce side effects of chemotherapy and radiation. Astragalus is used in the recovery from severe blood loss of a traumatic injury or from childbirth. It is used for diabetic patients and arthritic conditions.

[YEA]  re: Chronic Asthma & Aspergillosis.

I have been suddenly left completely disabled for the last two years. Sudden onset of respiratory illness and lethargy. I'm 35 and have been unable to do even the basic of personal daily routines. I used to ride all terain 20 miles a day up north. After two years of relying on modern medicine and countless hospital stays, I have decided not to die from a pescki fungus or anything else. So I have begun taking matters in my own hands and will try anything that makes sense. I currently began double dose of DHEA for natural precursor to antinflammatory, 7 oranges a day, 2xday apple cider vinegar, copper supplement,probiotic yogurt, and 4 times daily supplement. After 3days my neighbor comment that I have color for the first time. I also have been able to get out of bed. I am going to try the peroxide and apple cider vinegar in my nebulizer and report back. I believe it will work. Make an uncomfortable environment for bacteria, kill it, get it out, and keep it out! All this without dying from side effects of prednisone, advair, and numerous others.

Thanks for your posts! Many prayers for all of you.

Eight years ago I was diagnosed with Pulminary apsirgillosis. It was a severe case and my physician precribed prednisone for life. I took the prednisone for two weeks, after careful research I have cured the nasty fungus. I now breathe easy, workout daily and have a normal life. The secret to my success was through natural essential oils and diet. I tried many different types of oils and natural supliments for a lot of years and finally found the ones tha worked the best. I would love to share it with everyone. Oregano, breathe and ongaurd along with proper diet was the solution. My email is hhoelle2(at)msn(dot)com. send me a request and I will send you the brand and the diet. May you find relief as I understand the effects.
