But since this condition is contagious and could be life-threatening as well, you should better help arrest the progress of pneumonia in its early stages. To help you get started, we have listed some effective natural remedies for pneumonia treatment and management. Scroll down.

What Is Pneumonia?

Pneumonia is a microbial infection that can affect one or both of your lungs. This infectious condition has the potential to make you very sick by causing inflammation of your lungs, which get filled with fluid or phlegm. Individuals affected by a cold or flu are more likely to develop pneumonia owing to the weakened state of their lungs.

A study conducted on the prevalence of community-acquired pneumonia found that the annual incidence is 24.8 cases per 10,000 adults. The mortality rate of pneumonia is as high as 23% and is the eighth leading cause of death.

Jennifer Schmidt, a blogger, shared her experience with pneumonia, which significantly impacted her life. She fell seriously ill with pneumonia, affecting her left lung and leading to a loss of 25 lbs. over two weeks. She wrote, “In addition, pneumonia has left me with difficulty breathing. And when I am doing something strenuous, I am winded much quicker and I experience coughing fits as a result.” The experience prompted a shift in mindset, making her appreciate life, let go of uncontrollable factors, and focus on personal growth (i).

Pneumonia is classified into different types based on what germs caused it, where it was acquired and how. Let us take a look at the same below.

Types Of Pneumonia

Based On Germs

  • Bacterial Pneumonia: Certain bacteria like Streptococcus pneumoniae, Chlamydophila pneumoniae, and Legionella pneumophila cause penumonia.
  • Viral Pneumonia: Respiratory viruses are another common cause of pneumonia. However, viral pneumonia is not as serious as bacterial pneumonia. Influenza A and B viruses are the main cause of pneumonia in adults, and the main cause of viral pneumonia in infants is the Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV).
  • Mycoplasma Pneumonia: Mycoplasma pneumonia is caused by a genus of bacteria called Mycoplasma pneumoniae. This bacterial species lacks a cell wall and hence remains unaffected by most over-the-counter antibiotics.
  • Fungal Pneumonia: This type of pneumonia is mainly caused by fungi that are present in the soil or bird droppings. Fungal pneumonia easily affects those who have chronic diseases or weak immune systems.

Based On Where It Was Acquired (Location)

  • Hospital-Acquired Pneumonia: If you develop pneumonia during a hospital stay, it is referred to as hospital-acquired pneumonia.
  • Community-Acquired Pneumonia: This type of pneumonia is usually acquired in a public place and not in a hospital or institutional setting.

Based On How It Was Acquired

  • Aspiration Pneumonia: If you happen to develop pneumonia by inhaling bacteria from foods, drinks or saliva, it is called aspiration pneumonia. This type usually occurs when the infected individual has difficulty in swallowing.
  • Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia: Individuals using a ventilator can also develop pneumonia.

Now that you are familiar with the types of pneumonia, understanding its causes is a lot easier.

Causes Of Pneumonia

Pneumonia is often caused by microbes such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi. If you happen to inhale these microbes via air, food, or water, there is a high likelihood that you will develop pneumonia. And if you are already fighting the flu, cold or any other medical conditions like asthma or diabetes, your chances of contracting pneumonia are a lot higher.

Read on for the signs and symptoms that surface with the onset of pneumonia.

Signs And Symptoms Of Pneumonia

The most common symptoms that accompany pneumonia are as follows:

  • Bouts of coughing that produce phlegm
  • Difficulty in breathing
  • Chest pain that worsens while coughing
  • Fever and chills

Some symptoms of pneumonia may vary depending on its cause. They include:

  • Viral pneumonia shows flu-like symptoms (such as wheezing) followed by a high fever.
  • Bacterial pneumonia causes a high fever and bluish lips and nails.

The signs of pneumonia also vary in infants and adults and are as follows:

  • Children under 5 years of age may develop fast breathing
  • Infants may vomit and become very weak
  • There might be a drop in the body temperature of older people affected by pneumonia

Pneumonia can prove to be lethal, especially for the younger and older lot. Hence, it is necessary to treat it as soon as you notice its onset. Listed below are some of the best home remedies you can use to take care of pneumonia in its initial stages.
