Asthma and Fungal Infection: Relief Through Natural Treatment Plan

By HERWriter
Rate This

For a sufferer of chronic asthma with a fungal lung infection, natural treatment proved to be successful. Dr. Sandra Cabot treated a man with these health problems. He had developed an allergic reaction to an antibiotic and the fungal lung infection had intensified. Use of steroid puffers for chronic asthma have been linked to fungal infection. Steroids and antibiotics can create a fertile home for fungi.

The natural treatment plan involved physiotherapy, and use of a nebuliser machine for his bronchodilator drug. His diet was free of dairy and gluten, and rich with foods that are naturally antibiotic and anti-fungal, and herbs that are also antibiotic and anti-fungal. Supplements of selenium and zinc strengthened his immune system. Fish oil reduced bronchial inflammation.

"Three months after starting this program, this man had a chest X-ray, which showed clear lung fields and a culture of his sputum was clear of fungal elements. His lung function tests were normal, his allergic cough had resolved and his exercise capacity had increased."

Providing natural treatment is always the best option for preventing any infection. As there haven’t any side effect of natural things so one don’t have to worry after using natural treatment. Last year, I got this fungal infection on my toe and then one of my friends suggested me to use coconut oil and it really worked for me.
