A few months ago, one of my neighbors visited me, looking visibly upset. When I asked Leslie what the problem was she told me she had just come back from a visit to her doctor. Lately, she had been experiencing some breathing problems and was hoping they would go away on their own. After months of facing the same problem, she finally caved in and booked an appointment with her doctor. The news he had given her today was worrying – she had fluid in lungs which was making it difficult for her breathe. There are many diseases which are associated with fluid in lungs and can be benign or life threatening such as cancer. The doctor had ordered some tests which would tell what had caused the fluid to accumulate in the lungs and then they would chalk out a treatment plan. After she left, I thought or researching fluid in lungs on the internet and found out some very useful information. Fluid is always present in a sac-like cavity between the outer side of the lungs and the rib cage which allows the lungs to move easily when a person breathes. However, certain diseases cause more fluid to accumulate in the lungs and thus cause problems. These include: Pneumonia, liver disease, congestive heart failure, Pulmonary Embolism and inflammation of lungs. All these factors can be responsible for fluid in lungs and the condition can prove fatal if not cured early on.


Some of the common symptoms of fluid in lungs include chest pain, cough, fever and problematic and heavy breathing. Since all these symptoms are relatively mild and common with many other diseases, people often do not take them seriously and let the disease fester unchecked. If you value your health, you should never avoid going for a medical check-up and even schedule one every year to make sure you are healthy and fit.


When Leslie came back from the doctor she was somewhat relieved to find out that it was inflammation from Pneumonia. However, her dilemma was that she had to take antihistamines but she did not want to take medication. Luckily I was able to provide a solution – my father hated taking medicine so he knew almost all alternative natural products which could be taken instead of medicines. I called him up and he told me there were three top food items which contained natural antihistamine and can be consumed easily. The first one is Vitamin C which contains high amounts of natural antihistamine that cure allergies. Vitamin C is naturally found in citrus fruits, but you can also use a supplement. Food items such as citrus fruits, parsley, broccoli, apples, onions, tomatoes and garlic contain Flavonoids which have natural antihistamine. Lastly, fish contains high amounts of Omega 3 Fatty Acids, so if you need a dose of natural antihistamine in your body, you can consume a fatty fish like salmon or tuna at least 3 times a week.
Leslie is following a diet that contains all three sources of natural antihistamines and the results that she has achieved so far are amazing.
