Pneumonia is a debilitating condition that affects many regardless of age. Mainly though, it impacts the elderly and those with underlying conditions. It is an opportunistic infection waiting while the body is weakened by virus, malnutrition or other means. While bacterial pneumonia can be treated with antibiotics, recovery is slow. In addition, there may be a lasting legacy in the form of lung scarring which increases the risk in future of cancers and further infection.As antibiotic resistance develops, it is wise to consider further measures which could prevent pneumonia from developing, shorten its impact or reduce the damage that it can leave behind.Diet plays a part in this but the recommended daily allowance of many nutritional substances are not therapeutic amounts in these doses. Bringing together research, the authors draws it together with the experiences of her husband who was hospitalised with pneumonia. Together - and in the light of the information contained in the medical discharge sheet - the author, a medical nutritionist, has addressed the gaps of modern medicine by providing adjunctive support through diet and supplementation.
