Treatment for pneumonia and bronchitis

My friend has light pneumonia/bronchitis.What can he take or do?

Some different things your friend can do are:

  1. Take olive leaf extract or oregano extract to help combat the infection.
  2. Set up a steam machine with several drops of essential oils, including mint and eucalyptus to help clear up his lungs. An alternative to this is simply a pot of boiling water on the stove. Put the essential oils into the boiling water and place a towel over the head and stand over the pan, breathe deeply and be prepared to cough.
  3. Boost his immune system by taking Echinacea and goldenseal. These two herbs work wonderfully together and are often included as an herbal blend in cold remedies. By themselves, they are both powerful, but together, their infection fighting properties have been noted throughout history.
  4. Increasing his vitamin intake, especially his vitamin c. This helps the lungs and vitamin c is also an antioxidant, which helps to fight illness.
  5. One of the most important things is getting plenty of good rest. The body heals and fights infection while you sleep, so any time there is something wrong, sleep is very important.
  6. Drink plenty of fluids, hot tea with lemon is helpful in soothing a cough
