My wife had pneumonia and was given many antibiotics to clear this infection. It did clear but not completely. Doctors suggested a procedure were they will insert a device and physically remove the remainder of the infection from the lung. Is there a natural remedy that could clear the infection? Frustrated!

Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

I know that there are some herbs that help to support lung health, but none that clear infections.  Below are some benefits to using herbs for lung health, but I would strongly suggest consulting with your doctor prior so not to interfere or hinder the current treatment.

  • can helps break up and expel chest congestion.
  • Soothe irritated nasal passages and airways.
  • Relax the muscles near the upper respiratory system to quell a cough.
  • Calm the release of histamines.
  • Fight the harmful organisms that can produce upper respiratory problems.
  • They may be a source of antioxidants and reduce oxidative damage and redness.

I hope this helps.

Be well,
