Father with Pneumonia - Remedies Requested

Posted by Silvia on 05/13/2009

Hello, First off thank you for all the help you give at you really do help so many people all over the world. I wanted to know since my father has pneumonitis and I want to give him the apple cider vinegar in an aerosol to help him with his lungs but I don't know to give it. Is it given pure or diluted with water? What other treatments can you suggest that were not online. Thank you again for all your help, Silvia.

Dear Silvia:

A pneumonitus might respond to lysine 1200 mg given every two hours for a couple of times before the issue subside within two or three days. For the lungs, a simple white distilled vinegar 50% mixed with plain water and sprayed as aerosol might help, or perhaps a 1-2% H2O2 aerosol sprayed in aerosol a couple of times, such as 2-3 times every two hours. A borax remedy, such as 1/4 teaspoon in one liter of water, plus 30 drops of 3% H202 food grade internally, may help clear up also. N Acetyl Cysteine, non effervescent kind (the effervescent they seem to have added the dangerous aspartame) may help also in detoxification. I have used also a pure white distilled vinegar undiluted sprayed as an aerosol and breathe in seems to also helpful in clearing up the condition. If the condition gets better after the first time or second time, it's likely to work. But if it doesn't work the first time or second time, then it's not likely to work. Generally the white distilled vinegar is fast acting and usually helps, but it's applied usually at every 2 hour or less interval. Ozone really is helpful if there is an ozonator in the room for the condition. It's opened long enough to do the job and turned off when the ozone is too strong. In any case the ozone may need to be turned on every two hours. This means if the ozonator is turned on at 12.00 p.m. It will be turned on again at 2.00 p.m. The average lenght of time for a good ozonator to be turned on continuously is between 5 - 15 minutes, depending on the output of the generator. Usually a pungent smell that is too pungent often means it's time to turn off the machine. Furthermore, if an electronic ultrasonic or a mechanical humidifier is used a 10% or 5% sea salt helps, but it tends to create clouds on certain machine and the salt may interfere with electronic devices if used too much, however it creates a sea salt fog which also helps the breathing. A much simpler apparatus, is simply a 10% sea salt solution into ordinary sprayer, set on fog and spray. The sea salt fogs goes into the lung and kill whatever the bacteria, by killing them with higher salinity. The same thing is true by adding the drinking water with a sea salt solution, but never a common table salt. The solution I used is just 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt in 1/2 glass of water, one dose per day only. That's assuming of course there's not much problem of a blood pressure, but its effect on blood pressure is nearly not as bad as eating potato chips, or french fries, along with a coke. Greater salinity means greater immunity also.

As to the apple cider vinegar, that can be done also, but I used them undiluted. In aerosol application I really need a clear solution of apple cider vinegar, non - mother type, so it won't clog the aerosol sprayer. Its sprayed in fog form and directly into the lungs 1-2 times per dose, and done every 1-2 hour, usually 2 hours, to help discourage lung infection. Furthermore a sea salt can also be added. Suppose a 1 glass of apple cider vinegar is used, I will add perhaps 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt to the solution, if of course, the apple cider vinegar alone isn't working well. Usually if it works well the first time, then it's likely to work, but if it didn't work, I will switch over to another formula. My own personal use is often a simple white distilled vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, or a combination of both. That was because I was afraid of the clogging in a mother apple cider vinegar, but a non mother may not clog the aerosol sprayer. Magnesium chloride and lysine supplements seems to be helpful with the condition also. Magnesium works like a natural antibiotic. The dose I used is fairly low, usually 250 mg dissolved in a glass of water.
