Pnemonia

by Valerie G.

October 2006

I just had to share with you how God used herbs and natural products to heal my son.

He had a severe sore throat Monday night. My husband had him gargle with salt water and I gave him the Immune Booster tea ( echinacea root and tops, peppermint and nettle), crushed garlic with honey, and homemade chicken soup.

Tuesday morning he had a runny nose and a cough. I continued with the Immune Booster tea and garlic/honey, but also rubbed garlic oil on his chest and put a warm, damp cloth over it. Then I had him breathe steam with chamomile and chopped garlic.

I wasn't too concerned yet because my daughter had had the flu and she had recovered fine except a slight lingering cough.

Later that morning, he began vomiting. I gave him a probiotic capsule. He was able to keep it down and that put an end to the vomiting, but his other symptoms continued to get worse.

By that night, he had a fever, his heart was pounding, he was breathing rapidly, and complaining that it hurt to breathe and his back hurt when he moved. Finally, I realized we were dealing with something more serious.

I looked up the symptoms for pneumonia online and, sure enough, my son had all 17 symptoms that were listed. Okay, time to get serious.

I called for prayer support. My husband pinned a tent of blankets around my son's bunk bed and got out the vaporizer. I loaded it with garlic water and colloidal silver and made myself a bed on the floor in his room.

Wednesday morning (today), he wanted to know what was for breakfast. Other than a cough and a slightly painful ear, he felt fine. I gave him another garlic rub, more garlic with honey, Immune Booster tea, and another steam. I put a few drops of warm garlic oil in the ear.

It is now afternoon and he is doing wonderful, although I will continue treating him for several days after all symptoms are gone.

I am new to herbaling and just a few months ago I would not have had any idea what to do in such a situation. And although I was afraid and lacked confidence, I feel as if God has been preparing me for this.

Our God and His healing herbs are truly amazing!

I ordered Nourishing Traditions several months ago, and use it religiously! Nearly every meal I make includes at least a variation of one of the book's recipes. I love it! I will be ordering a few more books I have my eyes on shortly! Thank you for great products and services!

Did You Know?

Split ends and frail hair can be drastically reduced by simply consuming Horsetail cut and/or powder. Also, weak and thin fingernails can be stronger and thicker after just a few weeks. The nutritional structure of Horsetail is well known as one of the best cures for such annoyances. Just add a bit of the cut herb to any tea combination. In a tincture, it would even be more effective. The powder can also be encapsulated, if you prefer. Continue usage even after you see improvements to make them more permanent.

Kelp would be our second choice as a nutritional powerhouse that can make a noticeable difference. Consuming both would be the best way to tackle it.
