Meningitis Remedies

| Modified on Apr 07, 2024

Natural treatment of meningitis often involves the common cures for viral illness in addition to herbal remedies. Plenty of rest and fluid is important for hydrating the system and boosting its ability to defend itself. Additionally, common herbal treatments deliver specific immune boosting and inflammation fighting properties.

What is Meningitis?

Meningitis is typically the acute inflammation of the meninges, or the membranes that surround the brain and spin cord. General symptoms of meningitis include headache, fever and a stiff neck, which are typically caused by the characteristic swelling or inflammation of the condition.

Meningitis is most often cause by a viral infection; however, the condition may also result from a bacterial or fungal infection. If left untreated, meningitis may become severe and even life threatening.

Home Care for Inflammation of the Meninges

While more severe or progressive cases of meningitis may require supervised care from a medical professional, home care is often appropriate for most cases. Extra rest and plenty of fluids help boost an individual’s defenses. Additionally, herbal treatments including aged garlic, cat’s claw and olive leaf help support immune function and reduce inflammation.

Aged Garlic

One of the most heralded healthy herbs, garlic contains potent amounts of antioxidant sulfur. As such, this herb works to eliminate toxins, improve immunity and prevent further progression of the condition. Garlic is also an anti-inflammatory agent, so it works to naturally heal the swelling associated with meningitis.

Cat’s Claw

Cat’s claw is derived from a naturally occurring plant. This herb features powerful anti-inflammatory compounds, so it is particularly effective for treating meningitis. Additionally, cat’s claw stimulates the immune system, kills toxic cells and fights viruses.

Olive Leaf

Olive leaf, a derivative of the olive plant, contains a unique compound known as oleuropein. This compound possesses antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and disease-fighting characteristics, making it an effective treatment for meningitis. The benefit of the olive leaf is that it delivers high doses of oleuropein in relatively small amounts of the herb itself.

Inflammation of the meninges often causes a number of symptoms and health concerns; however, when the condition is caught early, home care options can be used to treat the condition. Extra rest and herbs are often enough to quickly cure the condition.

In one study at a major Chinese hospital, garlic therapy alone was an effective treatment of cryptococcal meningitis, a potentially deadly fungal infection.

Garlic has proved useful in the treatment of the meningitis. Garlic can be very beneficial for those suffering from meningitis as the allicin and various other organic compounds act as powerful antioxidants that have antiviral and antibacterial properties. Is an effective natural treatment against meningitis because of its anti-viral and bactericidal properties.

Louis Pasteur 1858 (the father of pasteurization), the well known microbiologist, reported that 1mm of garlic juice killed bacteria and he maintained it was effective even against some bacteria resistant to other factors. It was later discovered that one raw crushed clove of garlic contains the antibiotic equivalent of 100,000 units of penicillin and has been proven to be more effective than both penicillin and tetracycline in suppressing certain types of disease carrying agents. 100,000 Units = 60mg of penicillin.

Researchers at Washington State University have found that the compounds in garlic are 100 times more effective than two popular antibiotics at fighting the Campylobacter bacterium, one of the most common causes of intestinal illness. Their work was published recently in the Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy. Are you impressed yet?

From the book - Garlic 100 Ways to cure by GARLIC How to cure with garlic by Kimberly J Reid

Juice from 3 cloves of garlic and ¼ of onion should be taken along with fruit or vegetable juice. In cases of meningitis, you can extract the juice of 2-3 garlic cloves by crushing them into a pulp and mix this juice with fresh fruit or vegetable juice. This remedy should be taken twice a day till the symptoms completely go away and even sometime after that to prevent a relapse.

Does anyone have a cure or treatment for meningitis? Could not find meningitis under ailments.

The Vitamin C treatment for MRSA on the site might help. I've never been diagnosed with meningitis, but the symptoms sound similar. I may actually have Lyme or Hepatitis. I'd say beef up your immune system, get lots of rest and enough sunlight, avoid *toxic* relationships.

When my neck gets sore and stiff and I start feeling sick, I feel much better after I drink this:

hot milk + 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves + 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne peppers

or some variation of this:

hot milk + 1/2 teaspoon each ginger, turmeric, curry powder, cloves, cinnamon, cumin

It also seems to help my breathing, which I hadn't realized there was anything wrong with. Other things that help the icky feeling are:

Peanut butter, nutmeg, fresh lemon or lime juice, horseradish, spirulina, kelp, hemp seed protein powder, raw eggs

A little apple cider vinegar depending on the symptom. Vitamin C too, but preferably buffered. 1,000mg an hour or whenever I feel the sick creeping back. Get lots of rest, Valerian will help you sleep well and wake up refreshed, take it with cantaloup so it's less dehydrating. Valerian also helps with GABA in your intestines somehow I read somewhere. Bone broth will probably help you stay strong, too. Goat milk, cottage cheese, butter. All organic, filtered water. Skullcap, shitake mushrooms, miso soup, avoid grains and carbohydrates. Green leafy things. Parsley and broccoli. Apples and fresh lemon juice help my sinuses, too.

Coconut oil didn't do much for me, but it was a nice change of pace. Sugar is bad. Wheat, coffee, chocolate, vinegar are all bad. Nightshades are probably bad, too. Too much sugar makes me feel cold, sore, achy all over. I get excema from milk and ice cream, but not if I drink the milk with ginger and turmeric in it. After much trial and error milk with spices has been my diet staple lately. First thing in the morning instead of the coffee.

When it feels like my stomach isn't liking what I ate I drink 1 tablespoon of psyllium husk with 1/2 teaspoon baking soda in water. If I don't down the psyllium soon enough I get a horrendous headache, which ginger helps, but psyllium is better. If I don't catch it soon enough eventually my veins in my legs begin to feel painful and my legs and feet get cold and cramped, and eventually my bladder feels like I have an infection (though it's actually my intestine in that area) then I have to take the psyllium with baking soda and water and wait for it to go through my system, but the relief is instant after the psyllium is through.

I drink reverse osmosis water, so I find I have to add magnesium, potassium, and baking soda sometimes. I get a pressure in my head and chest when I lay down if I've had coffee or tea and salty food, the magnesium and potassium make it go away like flipping a switch, I can feel it happen suddenly. I take 60% RDV of magnesium and 3 9mg potassium pills with water.

I live downwind of two large cities and not to far from a nuclear plant. Some days you can see a line of yellowish smog over the lake on the horizon. Jesus is the only way.

Dr. Klenner of North Carolina used massive amounts of vit C for meningitis--higher amounts than for most of the diseases he treated with vit c. You would need either IV vit c or liposomal c, which you can buy or make. if you Google orthomolecular medicine, Klenner and encephalitis/meningitis and you should be able to find what dosages he used.
