Lower respiratory tract infection (Respiratory Disease) – Pneumonia - The Diet

Lower respiratory tract infection
The lower respiratory tract infection are the infection consisting of the trachea (wind pipe), bronchial tubes, the bronchioles, and the lungs, including the bronchitis and pneumonia. According to  The World Health Report 2004 – Changing History(1), in 2002 lower respiratory track infection were still the leading cause of deaths among all infectious diseases, and accounted for 3.9 million deaths worldwide and 6.9% of all deaths that year.
Pneumonia is defined as a condition of the inflammation of the lung as a result of infection, caused by bacteria, such as bacteria Streptococcus pneumoniae or influenza viruses in most cases. Fungi, such as Pneumocystis jiroveci, certain medication such as PPI Stomach Acid Drugs and other conditions such as impaired immune systems.
F. Preventions
F.2. Diet to prevent pneumonia
1. Garlic
Garlic is the natural superfood healer for its natural antibiotic with antiviral, antifungal, anticoagulant and antiseptic properties. Garlic cooked is fine but it loses many of its health-giving powers.
There is a report of a case of a critically ill infant with severe multidrug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa pneumonia and bacteremia who was treated with garlic and antibiotics after in vitro demonstration of a change in the resistance pattern via the disc diffusion method on garlic-treated Mueller Hinton agar. To our knowledge, this is the first report of therapeutic garlic use in a critically ill infant in the literature(56).
2. Green tea
In a population-based cohort study to examine the association between green tea consumption and death from pneumonia in humans, with follow-up from 1995 to 2006., showed that Over 12 y of follow-up, we documented 406 deaths from pneumonia. In women, the multivariate HRs of death from pneumonia that were associated with different frequencies of green tea consumption were 1.00 (reference) for <1 cup/d, 0.59 (95% CI: 0.36, 0.98) for 1-2 cups/d, 0.55 (95% CI: 0.33, 0.91) for 3-4 cups/d, and 0.53 (95% CI: 0.33, 0.83) for > or =5 cups/d, respectively (P for trend: 0.008). In men, no significant association was observed(52).
3. Turmeric
Curcumin derived from the rhizome of turmeric has been used for decades and it exhibits anti-inflammatory, anti-carcinogenic, immunomodulatory properties by downregulation of various inflammatory mediators,. according to the study by Panjab University, Curcumin alone and in combination with augmentin protects against pulmonary inflammation and acute lung injury generated during Klebsiella pneumoniae B5055-induced lung infection in BALB/c mice(58).
4. Citrus fruits, berries
Klebsiella pneumoniae is a ubiquitous opportunistic pathogen that colonizes at the mucosal surfaces in humans and causes severe diseases. Many clinical strains of K. pneumoniae are highly resistant to antibiotics. In the study of flavonols galangin, myricetin, quercetin, and kaempferol, bearing different numbers of hydroxyl substituent on the aromatic rings, to test whethermay inhibit dNTP binding of the primary replicative DnaB helicase of K. pneumoniae (KpDnaB), an essential component of the cellular replication machinery critical for bacterial survival, found that these flavonol compounds may be used in the development of new antibiotics that target K. pneumoniae and other bacteria(59).
