What Essential Oils Help Control Pneumonia?

Pneumonia is a common respiratory illness that can be very troubling. It affects the lungs, making it nothing to underestimate. Though it affects over 500, 000 thousand people each year, it can still be a scary experience to go through if you catch it.

Common Symptoms of Pneumonia

  • Coughing – dry or productive
  • Shortness of breath
  • Green phlegm expectorated when coughing
  • Headache and muscle aches
  • Fever and chills
  • Chest pains
  • Fatigue

What is Pneumonia?

Pneumonia can be caused by a bacteria, virus, or fungus. In rare cases, a parasite can cause pneumonia. There are several factors that can put one at a higher risk for contracting pneumonia, such as:

  • Smoking
  • Weakened immune system
  • Health conditions like COPD, asthma, and cystic fibrosis
  • Chemical exposure
  • Age – under age 5 and over age 65

It is important to seek medical treatment if you think that you are experiencing the symptoms of pneumonia. Though you might be required to take antibiotics or pain killers to get pneumonia symptoms under control, there several essential oils that can be added to your treatment plan that are effective in treating the symptoms of pneumonia the natural way.

Why Essential Oils are Good for Pneumonia

Many essential oils have properties that can fight illness, treat symptoms, and eliminate infections. These properties are:

  • Antibacterial. Essential oils contain properties that are antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antifungal. This means that they are very effective in killing the bacteria and microbes that can cause pneumonia, making recovery even quicker. This may also help reduce the amount of antibiotics needed through the illness.
  • Anti-Inflammatory. Many essential oils are good for pneumonia thanks to their ability to reduce inflammation in the lungs
  • Analgesic. People can often experience pain with pneumonia from coughing and inflammation. Analgesic essential oils are good for pneumonia to ease that discomfort.
  • Antiviral. Just like the antibacterial properties, antiviral essential oils can fight types of pneumonia that are caused by a viral infection.
  • Decongestant. Properties that can break up phlegm and help expectorate mucus can help ease breathing and assist with a faster recovery.

Not only are essential oils good for pneumonia, they can contribute to better health and assist with the prevention of pneumonia to avoid getting sick in the first place. Many essential oils can improve the immune system when inhaled regularly form a nebulizing essential oil diffuser such as:

  • Lemon Essential Oil
  • Bergamot Essential Oil
  • Lavender Essential Oil
  • Pine Essential Oil

By running them through cold and flu season, you can decrease your chances of illness before it happens.
