Pneumonia is an inflammation of your lungs and can be caused by one of three things which would be parasites, fungi or viruses. This can be extremely dangerous for those who may already have compromised immune systems as well as the elderly. The condition can be anywhere from mild to actually life threatening. No one is immune from it, so anyone can get it. The symptoms are the following:
- Respiration problems
- Pain in the chest
- Muscle aches
There are a variety of homeopathic treatments that can help alleviate some of these symptoms but it is suggested that since pneumonia is a very complex condition that curing it with homeopathic treatments is not advisable. The treatments may help to relieve a lot of the symptoms it still is best that you continue with traditional medical treatment by visiting the doctor and following his instructions.
The doctor may put you on an antibiotic and other medicines to help get it under control. You should make sure that if you still experience chills, fever, a cough you can't get rid of and a fever over 102 degrees that you go back to the doctor and he may have to put you in the hospital.
However, there is nothing wrong with using some of the homeopathic treatments along with the medicine our doctor has put you on. Some of those treatments are listed below.
Belladonna can be used to help get rid of the headache, congestion, the fever and the pain that comes with having pneumonia.

This can be done 4 times a day. Children should take two tablets just twice a day.
