Trouble Breathing After Getting Pneumonia

Posted by Rayma (Armstrong, MO) on 08/03/2008

I had pneumonia in oct and I have had trouble breathing. I have to use inhalers every day now .No insuarance so they won't test me to see whats wrong. I also have thyroid trouble. I've been hypothyroid for 3 years due to inflammation and they gave me a nuclar pill which I think killed my thyroid. Could I have mycoplasmas in my lungs? and what should I do ? Thank You Please Help

Dear Rayma:

The pneumonia, while initially it is virus, the later stage appears to be fungus like in nature, such as mycoplasma. To reduce the excessive liquids formed in mucus I used two techniques. One is to prepare a 10% solution of ammonium chloride and spray into the air and breathe a couple of times the mist. The solution as an effect of drying the moisture or what Chinese referred to as "dampness". Most fungus are extremely hygroscopic in nature and gets instantly killed (almost) in presence of a weak ammonium chloride mists using a spray (the plastic spray bottles sold in plant nurseries).

The biggest problem about this, obviously is finding them. A much less quality substitute might be a borax solution is used. I bought mine from a chemical supplier, but I can also purchase from a school supply store where they sell chemical for science high school students.

Certain other supplements such as chromium for example has properties that are anti fungal in nature as well as zinc supplements that are also anti viral. Baking soda 1/2 teaspoon in 1 glass of water taken twice a day will also improve oxygen in the blood as alkaline will drive out carbon dioxide.
