After returning home from Colombia I caught what seemed to be a very bad lung infection that included severe headaches, coughing, weakness, and constant fatigue. After 3 days of no improvement, I remembered a little health boost I used before. After taking this at night, I slept like a baby for the first time in days and I woke up 50% better. I will continue doing it every night before I sleep until I am fully recovered.
Here are the ingredients for my "Power Shot":
- 1 garlic clove (cut at thin as possible).
- Lemon juice from half a lemon (fresh), also throw in the pulp.
- 1 Tablespoon Apple cider vinegar.
Don't take this on a full stomach. Also, sprinkle a crushed ice cube and mix it in so that it goes down easier.
Repeat every night before bed and drink plenty of water (not immediately, at least 20-30 min after).
I was sick with pneomonia for 3 months last winter (age 38) , and was prescribed anti-biotics to get rid of it three times. Nothing worked, until I learned about taking Apple Cider Vinegar and honey. I took half a teaspoon of the Apple Cidar Vinegar and on the same spoon had half a teaspoon of honey, and took this three times per day for four days. I was cured on the fourth day! I recommend to everybody I know. Most people are still skeptical... and guess what? I had a few other bouts of pneomonia before that, and since taking this natural remedy, it's never came back!

Remedy for Pneumonia: Hi we have tried ACV for 2 weeks now but it is still not going away. Can you suggest any other natural remedies that work aside from hydrogen peroxide?
This year has seen higher than normal cases of the flu. I came down with it about 4 days ago. It started with an irritation in my bronchial tube and then it moved to my sinuses. Then for 2 nights I ran a fever (101.8) and had body aches. By the 3rd day it had settling in my chest with wheezing and coughing especially when I would try to take a deep breath. I could feel the phlegm rattling in my chest which scared me because about 30 years ago I ended up in the hospital due to pneumonia. I have been coughing so much it hurts to breathe, at times it was out of control and I couldn't stop.
Also, last night I had to sleep sitting up in the recliner because I felt like I couldn't get enough air. Anyway, I had been reading earlier today about home remedies and saw someone recommend cayenne pepper for cough and phlegm in the chest. I knew I had some in my spice cabinet and was willing to try anything.
I put about ¼ - ½ teaspoon in about ¼ cup of water, stirred it good and drank it down, chasing it with more water knowing it would be hot. I then eat my dinner right away (parsley salad with quinoa) and had hot tea with lemon. After dinner about 45 minutes later I noticed I wasn't whizzing or coughing anymore. I felt almost normal for the first time in days. I said something about it to my husband and he agreed saying he had noticed a change in me too. It has been about 4 hours now and I still feel better so much better. I really believe the cayenne opened the airways in my lungs and stopped the rattling in my chest (I still have a little but nothing like it was). I don't normally share my experiences, but I feel if it can help anyone going through such misery…like the person that shared with me earlier, I should too. If I wake up tomorrow feeling bad again I plan on trying it again.
By the way, I have been taking turmeric in a small amount of milk, 2000 mg vitamin C, B12 under the tongue, and other supplements every day, but nothing seemed to work so quickly as the cayenne did.
I have never done a post here, but I am so thankful I had to do one. We are visiting family. My Mother has pneumonia, a bad case of it. My cousin has what sounds like walking pneumonia, but he won't go to the doc, he's just coughing around the house and spreading it to the rest of us as a Christmas gift I guess. My cousin has the flu and my nephew has the flu and my nephews son and daughter have severe sore throats. You need to know that, because except for 3 folks mentioned, we are all in the SAME House.
Yesterday I went to bed with a severe sore throat that had been swelling for days. I just knew I was coming down with Pneumonia. I decided to gargle with the hottest water possible and put a cayenne capsule in it. I used Nature's way cayenne capsules that say 40,000 H.U on the front. I just opened the capsule and put it in the hot water.
I had immediate relief and was able to sleep. But it lasted only about an hour. So I decided to do it again. But this time, I used two capsules and I gargled twice and then I sipped some of the water and did that a couple times till I could really feel the cayenne in the back of my throat. Within 5 minutes a chunk (sorry to be gross) of infection came out of the left side of my nose when I blew it, and my sinus' have been clear ever since.
Going forward the next day, I stayed in bed and drank green tea with 1 teaspoon of honey and two teaspoons of lemon (the one from the bottle, we didn't have fresh lemons) and I opened up one capsule of cayenne pepper and put that in the green tea. I feel 85 percent better and its been only one day. I can't believe it. My throat is still a little swollen, just enough to let me know something's hanging around. But I am not coughing much and I can sleep. I hope this really helps some folks. I am very very greatful.
Has anybody used Mesosilver? It is labelled a colloidal but the nanoparticles are under 1 nanometer, and I am just wondering if people have had success or not with it. I was using Source Naturals 30ppm and felt like the results were miraculous, but got this Mesosilver and don't feel it is as effective, although 8.5oz cost around $30 (reason for buying).

I did my colloidal silver about 3 weeks ago and I stopped. It has been about 2 weeks since I haven't done any colloidal silver and my problem is back with my lungs. Bronchitis and pneumonia. My lungs are hurting me a lot and I need to know if I can do my Colloidal silver again. How long do I do my silver and how many times a day? I think I stopped doing my colloidal silver to soon. I stopped because I read that you can only do it for about 2 weeks.
I need some answers, so I can get my lungs better again. I don't want to go back to the hospital again. I'm also taking vitamin c with Rose Hip to supports my immune system. I take the vitamins 3 times a day. It has 1000mg. I also read that you have to take some probiotics when doing the colloidal silver. I need to know if that is true. I need to know if I'm doing something wrong that the colloidal silver is not working right. What do I do and take while doing my colloidal silver. this is my second time doing the silver. Please help me someone. This is all new to me and I do need some help. I was also doing some garlic and it did help me. I hope momma to many can help me too.
I also need to know if you can take some Tylenol 3 with codeine when doing colloidal silver? I'm having a lot of pain. HELP .
Colloidal Silver is the best! I used it recently in a nebuliser to get ride of a nasty cold that turned into bronchitis. Ever hour for 5-10 mins for the first few days, to hit it hard, and I was way better by day 4.

Hi Colloidal Silver will kill Pneumonia, but it has to be NEBULISED to get it straight to the lung's. Put undiluted Colloidal Silver in the nebuliser cup, and breathe it in as deeply as possible for 5 minutes. Hold breath if able for 4 or 5 seconds, this will get it to the lower respitory tract better, then exhale, do this every 1 to 2 hours until there is an improvement in symptoms and breathing. It might cause coughing for a bit, but that's ok its the Silver loosening all the gunk in the lungs, when there is an improvement, stretch it out by an hour(1 then 2, 2 then 3) an so on. Then when the patient can go four hours between Nebulisers, do it 4 hourly, do it until their clear of all breathing problems at 4 hours, Do it for a week, but it can be done longer if needed and will do no harm. Do not Nebulise Hydrogen Peroxide as this will damage Lung tissue, and never mix it with Colloidal Silver as this causes a toxic gas. Do not worry if patient can't take deep breaths, or hold it, the Nebuliser will turn it in to a fine mist and send it to the Lungs where its needed, and a face mask is better than a mouth piece if this is a problem, you can also use a quarter, or less or more if tolerated, of Epsom Salt in distilled water in the nebuliser first as this opens up the airway's and relaxes Lung spasms so the Silver will reach further down the Lungs and the Epsom Salt may induce coughing as it opens the airway's, its the lungs it needs to go, swallowing any thing will take it to the stomach where it will be diluted by stomach acid, and wont reach the lungs. Both are excellent for any lung issues done this way. Drink water in between breaths if needed as the taste is not great and may dry the mouth out, and drink plenty of distilled water when using Colloidal silver through out the day Love Andrea C xxxxxx

Colloidal silver inhalation for lungs
I have been using a cool mist humidifier to deliver colloidal and/or ionic silver to my lungs 4 x a day or more for almost 6 days. Possible bronchitis/pneumonia. Also doing hydrogen peroxide inhalation's 7 x a day. Avoiding ingesting colloidal silver due to gastritis. Need to keep anything off of the stomach for a while.
How long do I need to do this for it to work? Still have pain.
I have had bronchial pneumonia for ten years, and every year I have to see my doctor two, three even four times a year for antibiotics to control my problem. Each time using stronger antibiotics sometimes helping sometimes just calming the symptoms. Two years ago I met a friend who suggested a flu shot once a year, so even though my doctor said it would not help, I got a flu shot and a pneumonia shot and I have not had to see the doctor or take any pills or had any symptoms for two years...I can't say It's a miracle cure but after ten years of popping pills I'm a free man...

Hello, I was hospitalized for a severe case of pneumonia and pleural effusion on one lung. (Covid 19 test was negative.)
The pneumonia cleared up rather quickly but the pleural effusion was getting worse and I became the lucky recipient of a chest tube. The doctors used enzymes to dissolve the fluid then drain it. It wasn't as successful as they hoped after repeating this a few times. Eventually they let me go home to see what my body would work out on its own and come back in a month. Fortunately, my body worked out a good amount of the fluid and found I have a fair amount of scar tissue from the pneumonia.
I feel ok, energy level is still a little off and the oxygen level is good. But I have a lingering pain when I take a deep breath but not when I breath normally. Does it get any better? What about the pneumonia shot? Should I get it?
Lastly, the respiratory therapist in the hospital was a Russian lady and she was gold to me. She told me after I get out, I should take a teaspoon of food grade peroxide everyday and I will never have lung issues again. Does anybody have experience with this protocol?
Lastly, thank you for your response.

Writing this 20 minutes after my doctor's appointment. She confirmed that yes, I did have a pneumonia (unsure if it was viral or bacterial) and that my body has fought it off. Today, I'm at about 93% health and energy-wise. I am beyond happy so I wanted to share my method.
In short: I was sick for nearly 3 weeks. Began when I was on a trip overseas, so it very well could have been the moist, stale air on the 9 hour plane ride. Started with a sore throat and feeling tired… developed into 2+ weeks of a low-grade fever, coughing up different colored gunk, lungs and throat rattling and wheezing, and feeling extremely exhausted. A relative who is a nurse listened to my lungs and said one had fluid in it.
Money kept me from going to the emergency room, called walk-in clinics but they told me they don't treat pneumonia, and there was a week-long wait for an appointment at my community health clinic. And so, I was on my own. I don't like to take medication EVER, but with this illness, I was scared and would have gladly taken any prescription someone handed me.
Luckily though, I didn't have the money or resources. So here is what I did:
1) Rest – Slept as much as humanly possible and rested.
2) Fluids – Tons of fluids. Water, orange juice, tea, everything. Give your body a rest, don't bog it down with digesting things like meat.
The major players:
3) Raw garlic – Anywhere from 1-5 cloves per day. Rule of thumb: if you aren't getting results with garlic, take more. I pressed the clove to break it open and let the air hit it for 3-5 minutes. Then chewed minimally and swallowed with a teaspoon of honey. A little water to wash it down.
4) Oil of Oregano – I bought a small bottle of this at the health food store and tried all kinds of combinations (breathed in steam, put drops under my tongue, in my water, etc. ) Similar to garlic in helping fight bacteria and infection. (Also similar to garlic in that it tastes horrible and makes people think you've been cooking Italian food.)
5) Unrefined Coconut Oil – 1 Tablespoon once a day. Studies show that it cuts down recovery time for pneumonia in children.
6) Apple cider vinegar – Two Tablespoons heated mixed with a cup of water and honey. This helps with the cough. It calms down the throat and lungs.
7) Vitamin C tablets. Got these in another country but they are just like those fizzy vitamin tablets. Who knows if these really work, but I took them anyway. About 3000mg a day.
8) Even though garlic and Oil of Oregano don't kill of your body's defenses like an antibiotic would, I still added in some probiotic yogurt to help my body replace the good bacteria.
At the advice of my relative who is a nurse, I did also get a mucus thinner from the drug store as well… to get some of the fluid out of my lungs. Took two pills each morning for a few days but it caused me to violently cough, so I stopped taking it.
It took a couple of weeks, but I feel WORLDS better. Do these things taste and smell good? Nooo. Are some of your friends/family going to think the idea of fighting pneumonia with something like garlic is ridiculous? Yeees. But, it works. And I spent very VERY little money. My good sense told me garlic alone could fight this off, but like anyone, I tend to get scared when I am very sick (sometimes you just want an RX from a doctor.) Obviously, use your judgment and go to the E.R. If you must. But after this whopper of an illness, I'm telling you, I genuinely don't think I will ever take an antibiotic again.
Garlic Salve is use by both the Amish and Mennonite communities here in Kentucky as well in other states. They know it as “A Natural Antibiotic”. Yes, it makes you smell like a garlic bulb but it does kill infections in the lungs FAST!
You can usually pick up a 4oz tin of it at country stores near their communities, or you can make a crude version of this at home on the stove.
- one bulb garlic (peeled and minced)
- olive oil
- coffee mug made from ceramic
- metal pot
- fine strainer
How to make:
Put the grated garlic into coffee mug. Allow it to set for 20 minutes in the mug to convert the garlic juice to allicin. Add enough olive oil to the coffee mug to fill it by ¾. Now put the coffee mug in the middle of the pot. Add water to the pot, enough to bring water level up to the half way mark on the coffee mug. You now have made an “improvised double boiler”. Turn on heat to medium setting. You want the water hot but not boiling. Stir mixture in mug from time to time. Cook for at least one hour while maintaining water level in pot with fresh water. Turn stove off and allow mug to cool to room temperature. Strain olive oil/garlic thru a fine strainer to remove pulp. If you want to, add 10 drops lavender oil to the mug too help with the smell.
Apply this garlic oil to bottom of feet, chest, back, sides and around neck 3 – 4x/daily to draw out and kill infection in the lungs due to bronchitis or pneumonia and the best remedy for pleurisy. This garlic oil can be used on babies and the elderly.
Internally, we drink Mullein leaf tea with honey or Mullein tincture throughout the day.
Recently I had a surprising elimination of a post nasal drip. I've dealt with them for 20+ yrs. I take serrapeptase intermittently but had not taken it for months. Then a few weeks ago I had a bad bout. Was miserable. I had just bought Zinc & elderberry lozenges and that night, after waking up coughing, reached for them and popped one in my mouth and went back to sleep. When I woke, it was the strangest feeling in my throat/sinus area; dry like the Sahara feeling. The drip was gone. The strange feeling remained for 2-3 days but it was almost miraculous how it stopped the PND. Maybe bc I was laying down it was able to directly affect the area, as opposed to being upright. I don't know other than it was an extremely surprising & welcomed effect!
For chronic cases (which I no longer have) I highly recommend Grapefruit Seed Extract (aka 'GSE'). The root cause of sinus infections and PND is mold and fungus. A recent study of chronic sinusitis and fungus done by the mayo clinic found that a whopping 97% of people tested had an average of 2.7 types of fungus growing in their sinus cavities. And they were successfully treated for chronic sinus infections using antifungal medications treatments. But what was found to be the most effective antifungal agent, by far, was the natural remedy of grapefruit seed extract (GSE)! ... Same goes for most respiratory infections.
I got home from the hospital from pneumonia and was not OK. Started immediately, I got empty capsules and filled them up 15-20 drops of extract fit in each cap (30 drops, twice daily). Amazing remedy! I've read ppl opening nasal spray bottles of saline solution and adding a 3 drops of GSE and spraying that into their sinuses every 3-4 times daily. Our medicine cabinet won't be without this. Research it for yourself. And lastly, buy the GSE that's been around forever (red label & cap), not the newer ones that I hear are not as potent.
