Tuberculosis Remedies

Last Modified on Jun 22, 2014

A potentially dangerous condition, tuberculosis primarily affects the lungs. As it is caused by bacteria, the condition requires directed treatment that possesses specific antibacterial properties. A number of natural remedies can be used to treat the condition including garlic oil and vitamin D.

What is Tuberculosis?

Tuberculosis is an infectious disease that mainly affects the lungs. Caused by bacteria that spreads from person to person via microscopic water droplets, tuberculosis is contagious but not necessarily easy to catch.

Symptoms of the disorder include cough, unintentional weight loss, fatigue, fever, night sweats, chills and loss of appetite. Additional signs of the condition include persistent coughing that lasts three weeks or more, coughing up blood and chest pain.

Natural Remedies for TB

Treatments for tuberculosis center on eliminating the bacterial infection and boosting the immune system. While the exact treatment and duration of care are dependent on a variety of factors, the condition often responds well to natural treatment. Garlic oil, vitamin D and selenium are among the natural treatment options for the condition.

Garlic Oil

Garlic oil is considered a natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agent. Garlic contains a number of sulfurous components that function to fight infection and eradicate toxins from the body. These compounds also promote circulation and the filtration of the blood to eradicate the condition.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is important for more than just bone health. The vitamin is an important component in preventing growth of toxic cells including bacteria. The vitamin also plays a role in regulating the immune system, making it an effective treatment option for TB.


Selenium plays a key role in metabolism and is an active antioxidant. As such, selenium functions to remove toxic substances, including bacteria, from the body. The nutrient also activates the bodies stores of vitamins E and C, which help support overall immune health and function.

While treatment of tuberculosis often lasts several months, natural treatment options help support the body’s recovery and prevent future recurrence of the condition. TB is a progressive condition that often resists many medical treatments, making natural treatments an advantageous option.

Tuberculosis is a mycobacterium and usually responds well with alkaline and ammonium compounds, as well as a common ozone from an ozone generator. One of the early cures of tuberculosis was first suggested by Edgar Cayce, the sleeping prophet where his own wife had tuberculosis and was cured with fresh air and sunshine. Fresh air has ozone, sunshine has vitamin D which raises immune system. A suitable replacement is to use ozone generators sold in most aquarium shops for fishes. A larger dose of vitamin D3 in the 10,000 to 20,000 i.u. per day dose are often used. Selenium, chromium (in form of chromium polynicotinate), iodine (from kelp) and tyrosine supplements are supportive of anti tuberular properties. Homes living in moldy house is best destroyed with a 20% solution of ammonium chloride solution sprayed in the mist form in the room on th ewalls, etc., especially after a rainstorm, where fungal counts are the highest. Avoid spraying near electronic and metal materials as this tends to degrade metals.

A mixture using a pump spray can be prepared as follows, 10% ammonium chloride, 10% milk of magnesia (this is actually a 5% magnesium hydroxide perparation preferably should not purchase if they added aluminum as it is a neurotoxin if it reaches the brain), plus optional 10% xylitol powder (pure xylitol, not the ones with gums - they have the toxic aspartame which causes metabolic acidosis in all the cases I've seen). You add the water and put this in a pump spray and adjust it on mist setting. It is then spray into the air and you just breathe in the mist a couple of times a day, such as 3 or 4 times a day.

Common immune boosters for this condition is the selenium yeast 200 mcg, vitamin D, fish oil 1000 mg, colostrum 3 times a day and kelp 1000 mg. Alkalization here is important, a simplest one is 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1 glass of water taken twice a day. The alkalization will prevent the spread of T.B. to other areas because when the blood is more alkaline, the factor where blood will carry t.b. to other areas of the lungs, or bones or other area is limited as it will be killed by the nature of alkalinity. The baking soda also increases blood oxygen which also raises the blood immune system. If a vitamin D is taken, it is always important that magnesium citrate or magnesium chloride 250 or 500 mg is taken to help balance the calcium and magnesium ratio. Even if vitamin D is not taken, the magnesium also helps the immune system due to the nature of magnesium chloride in its somewhat antibiotic powers.

Dear Sir, 1. Thank you for your helpful website. I read what Ted suggested on the home help remedy but I find it quite difficult to help my brother who is in Malaysia and I am in Singapore.
2. Is it possible to get some capsules of Tuberculosis after care to strengthen/maintain his immune system?
With much gratefulness
