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!

From our Mailbox

When our family begins to get the sniffles, I prepare a simple concoction of
the following in a small dish:

½ cup chopped onion
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 inches of ginger, minced

Drizzle ¾ cup of non-pasturized honey over the mix of fresh herbs and cover
with a lid. In a while, you will notice a runny liquid forming on top; this
is an extraction of the ingredients. Use this liquid as a cough syrup
throughout the day. Our colds do not usually last more than 2 days with this
easy and effective concoction!

This combination can also be used in a tea form. Simply brew a cup of mint
or chamomile tea and add some of the above mentioned liquid along with some
freshly squeezed lemon juice. Non-pasturized honey can also be added to
taste. This tea works just like Neocitran without the use of drugs or
chemicals!

Did You Know?

Unusually offensive body odor is often the result of toxins built up in the body, making their way out through the skin. Whether it's your feet, armpits or fecal matter, all such foul smells usually have the same root cause: excess toxins. Tackling such issues with an external remedy is usually, at best, a temporary fix. The use of Bentonite clay internally can flush out a wide variety of odor-causing toxins. A young lady from Florida recently shared how wonderful it is to be free of the offensive odor that had plagued her for some time. She thought it would never go away, but not long after she started consuming Bentonite clay, the body odor disappeared.
