Pneumonia may be helped with Haritaki
Research indicates that the cytomegalovirus can be a cause of pneumonia. Research into cytomegalovirus indicates that Haritaki may be helpful for this condition. I am posting a link here to the article on cytomegalovirus and Haritaki.
Here is some background on Pneumonia. Your doctor can advise you if the particular virus that is causing your pneumonia could be helped with Haritaki.
How much Haritaki to take for Pneumonia?
The amounts of Haritaki to take vary according to your digestive system. If you tend towards constipation then Haritaki is best taken in larger amounts. What I mean by larger amounts are 1-2 tablespoons per night at bedtime. When your constipation turns to regular bowel movements first thing in the morning with a feeling of complete elimination then you know you are on the right track.
This next post describes the health issues that Pneumonia can generate:
Pneumonia is a lung infection that can make you very sick. You may cough, run a fever, and have a hard time breathing. For most people, pneumonia can be treated at home. It often clears up in 2 to 3 weeks. But older adults, babies, and people with other diseases can become very ill. They may need to be in the hospital.
You can get pneumonia in your daily life, such as at school or work. This is called community-associated pneumonia. You can also get it when you are in a hospital or nursing home. This is called healthcare-associated pneumonia. It may be more severe because you already are ill. This topic focuses on pneumonia you get in your daily life.
Germs called bacteria or viruses usually cause pneumonia.
Pneumonia usually starts when you breathe the germs into your lungs. You may be more likely to get the disease after having a cold or the flu. These illnesses make it hard for your lungs to fight infection, so it is easier to get pneumonia. Having a long-term, or chronic, disease like asthma, heart disease, cancer, or diabetes also makes you more likely to get pneumonia.
