Natural Cures for Blastomycosis

| Modified on Oct 03, 2017

Your condition likely started like something seeming like the flu, but when you went to the doctor you were diagnosed with a condition known as blastomycosis. If this is the case, don’t worry because your condition is treatable. It just takes finding the right natural cures like garlic, eucalyptus, and goldenseal in conjunction with other mainstream care options.

What Is Blastomycosis?

Blastomycosis is a rare fungal infection caused by the fungus Blastomyces dermatitidis. You contract the disease by inhaling the spores of this fungus which are typically found in damp wood and soil.

The symptoms of the condition vary and range from pulmonary issues to skin, bone, and genital lesions. Some of the most common symptoms include hoarseness, a dry cough, chest pain, difficulty breathing, fever, chills, and raised bumps or blisters.

Who Is at Risk for Fungal Infection?

The fungus seems largely localized to the Mississippi River Valley region, so those living in this area are at the most risk. Even in these areas, however, the fungus is rare.

Are There Any Effective Natural Remedies for Blastomycosis?

While you can use natural remedies to treat fungal infections, we suggest that you see a doctor prior to self-medicating. This practice offers you a better understanding of your condition as well as its severity. With any treatment plan, however, herbs like garlic, eucalyptus, and goldenseal, are appropriate supplements as they kill fungus and help support your immune system.

1. Garlic

Raw garlic cloves are one of the best anti-fungal remedies we know. Garlic contains important compound called allicin that helps cleanse the blood, destroy a wide variety of molds, and supports better immune infection. You can choose to eat 1-2 raw garlic cloves or take a non-odorous capsule of garlic three times a day for the most effective treatment.

2. Eucalyptus

Eucalyptus is a strong antibacterial agent with additional antiseptic properties. This herb helps respiratory infection and also helps eliminate the fungus that causes the condition. When taking eucalyptus, be sure to take no more than 0.2 milliliters per day and take the dose dilute in warm water. You can also add a few drops of eucalyptus oil to a vaporizer to use as an inhalant to soothe your respiratory system.

3. Goldenseal

Goldenseal is another effective anti-fungal herb; however, it should be taken in conjunction with other anti-fungal remedies to boost its healing properties. This herb also supports immune development. You can take goldenseal in the form of a capsule or tincture. Begin treating using 500 milligram capsules or 10 drops of extract three times a day.

While it can be difficult to find effective treatments for blastomycosis, these herbal remedies can help. Additionally, you should take immune supporting supplements like vitamin C for the best results. Continue reading below for more suggestions from our readers!

Has anyone ever fought pulmonary blastomycosis with herbals and it helped?

Hello, I was just wondering if you ever received any helpful advise or not. I was diagnosed about a month ago. The Dr. wants to put me on the same med, but it would conflict with my Amiodarone. Dermo. says he'll call Cardio. to see if he could change my Amiodarone( A-fib med), so that I can take the itraconazole. Also, did you find the itraconazole at a descent price anywhere? I was told $800.00 for 60 200mg caps.

Yes, on my dog unknowingly. thought her breathing issues were due to parasites, when in actuality she had systemic blastomycosis as I later found out through a lab test at the vet. I used the treatment for Dr.Hulda Clarke's pet parasite cleanse. A combination of parsley water (to keep the kidneys clean) black walnut green hull tincture, wormwood, and cloves. Her improvement was extremely significant. Both the black walnut and cloves are anti fungal. I have used this regiment on myself as well and it also brought Lyme disease to its knees in my case. You might also try royal rife light treatment frequencies for blastomycosis. Hope this helps.

I am curious to know how bad your dog was before you started treatment for blasto? My dog was just dx on Thursday. She has had symptoms for over 3 weeks without a dx. She has had lameness, blindnees- d/t retinal detatchemnt in one eye with the other eye not looking good. She only eats treats and sleeps a lot. She is on an oral anti-fingla and multiple drops to try and help what is left of her good eye. Can you tell me about the alternative treatment you did. I hate watching her suffer and think if we don't find another way we are going to have to put her down. Thanks

read Bob Becks's web page testimonials -use colloidal Silver (internally/ externally) and the micro current generator to get rid of the fungus. apply the colloidal Silver to the eyes. You may also consider urine therapy.

My pyaneiss was diagnosed with fungal infection in his eyes. We started him on meds for this & getting ready to treat him for any fungal infection that maybe located elsewhere. Has anyone tried natural remedies? If so, what?

Hi! Please help me! My 4.5 Romanian Sheppard dog has blastomycosis, not in her lungs, in her bone (write front leg). It seems to be the first dog ever diagnosed in Romania. We tried the classic treatment with Itraconazole, we have consulted doctors from abroad and have no access to iv Itraconazole (not licensed here, nor in EU). I am trying a mix of essential oils now, (for 2 weeks), but looking for other options (homeopathy, other). Can you please share any info you have? My dog could live up to 10-12yrs:(. It seems that for now is it very localized, only a MRI will tell us if it affects other bones as well. And we are trying to avoid cutting her leg since she is a xxl size dog. I read that less than 10% of the diagnosed dogs have the infection in their bones, so the treatment is even more difficult for these dogs.

Thank you very much!
