Herbal Antibiotic for MDR Pneumonia

Pneumonia is inflammation of the lung that is most often caused by infection with bacteria viruses or other organisms. Occasionally inhaled chemicals can cause lung inflammation.

Pneumonia may be defined according to its location in the lung: Lobar pneumonia occurs in one part or lobe of the lung. Bronchopneumonia tends to be scattered throughout the lung. CAP Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) is acquired in the community setting, not in a hospital or other care facility. Hospital (or nosocomial)-acquired pneumonia and nursing home-acquired pneumonia are acquired in those settings.

The Lungs are two spongy organs in the chest surrounded by a thin, moist membrane called the pleura. Each lung is composed of smooth, shiny lobes. The right lung has three lobes, and the left has two. About 90% of the lung is filled with air. Only 10% is solid tissue.

The bronchi divide, like the branches of a tree, into smaller airways called bronchioles. The bronchioles lead to a group of microscopic sacs called alveoli, which look like clusters of grapes. Each healthy adult lung contains millions of tiny alveoli.

Pneumonia may have a viral or bacterial cause. Viral pneumonia accounts for a third or more of community-acquired pneumonias.

Treatment: Ceftaroline, a cephalosporin is newly approved for the treatment of community-acquired pneumonia and the first b-lactam active against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus (S.) aureus (MRSA) and multidrug-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae.

Better than Penicillin
Allicin the component that gives garlic its strong odor and destroys bacteria and fungi. When crushed, combines with the enzyme allinase and results in antibacterial action equivalent to 1% penicillin.
Allicin and its cohorts are very significant...yet the 1/2 life of allicin (the time needed for one-half of a given amount of the component to deteriorate) is estimated to be around 18 full hours. Meaning garlic’s antibiotic properties are able to kill bacteria in-air for about 18 hours.
Inhaling crushed garlic fumes help destroy pneumonia virus and open breathing passages?

Modern science has shown that garlic is a powerful natural antibiotic with a wide-ranging affect rather than targeted. The body does not build up resistance to garlic so the positive health benefits continue.

The objective of present investigation was to study in vitro inhibitory activity of garlic extract on multidrug-resistant (MDR) strains of Streptococcus mutans isolated from human carious teeth.
Garlic extract is also active against MDR organisms such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa , Klebsiella pneumoniae and Mycobacterium tuberculosis . The objective of the present investigation was to determine the inhibitory activity of garlic extract on S. mutans.
All microorganisms used in the present study were susceptible to the garlic extracts. No isolates were resistant to garlic, indicating that it is a promising antimicrobial agent. The 5% thru 100% concentrations of garlic extract had relatively similar effects, so the 5% solution can be considered for further studies.;year=2013;volume=24;issue=1;spage=71;epage=75;aulast=Houshmand
Layman’s Interpretation:
Garlic kills pneumonia. Right? Regardless of the concentration amount garlic extract inhibits S. mutans, Klebsiella pneumonia, tuberculosis and others   

Remarkably garlic also exerts similar activity against viruses, fungi, and parasites. Garlic undoubtedly is a key to achieving optimal immunity and protecting against infections. Garlic was used successfully as a prophylactic before polio vaccines were developed. Garlic has a broader range of bactericidal powers than penicillin. One milligram of its major active compound, allicin, has the equivalent antibacterial power of 15 standard units of penicillin.

Garlic was found to be a more potent antibiotic than penicillin, ampicillin, doxycycline, streptomycin and cephalexin, some of the antibiotic drugs used in the treatment of anthrax.

 In 1941, researchers reported that very dilute allicin solutions (one part in 125,000) inhibited the growth of fourteen of fifteen species of bacteria, including strains of staph, strep, and Shigella, cholera. A slightly stronger allicin concentration was effective against all fifteen species.

The TONIC Nutritional Garlic Supplement is made from a centuries-old recipe originally taken seasonally to prevent colds and flu. The combination of organic ingredients contains the power of raw garlic and no unpleasant residue formulated to help maintain
Good Health, Naturally.
