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 was so excited when my mom first told me about your site. I have been looking to find "natural ways" to take my vitamins and am looking forward to using some of the herbs my mom has already purchased. Oh, I also love that there are videos so that I am not "winging it" when it comes to what I am supposed to mix. You guys are freakin' awesome!!

Did You Know?

Daily sprinkling a little Cayenne powder on the toothpaste on your toothbrush can work miracles in fighting and preventing gum disease. That's right! It will also help deal with other oral ailments that plague many folks these days. After reading about this, we just had to try it. There is a warm sensation in your mouth as you brush your teeth, but it soon disappears after rinsing. As always, whenever using Cayenne powder, you should start with very small amounts to allow the body some time to build up a tolerance. The first few times we used it, we sprinkled so little of the powder on the toothpaste that we didn't feel anything. As the days progressed, we increased the amounts slightly until we felt it was warm enough. After using it for a little while, the nice feeling in your mouth is very satisfying. Be warned, however, that you do not want to overdo this one, so start small.
