  • Pneumonia-related inflammation in the lungs can be effectively treated with amla.
  • Amla is home to several antibacterial compounds that help eliminate the bacteria that cause pneumonia.

Fenugreek treats various conditions, including fever, asthma, cough, and congestion. This efficient treatment for congestion caused by mucous is widely used in India. Fenugreek tea can be made by boiling one teaspoon of the herb in 500 ml water and then adding a few drops of honey. It can be very helpful in cases of pneumonia or congestion.


Ginger Water 

One of the most effective ayurvedic treatments for pneumonia is ginger water. Drinking warm ginger water throughout the day significantly aids in the relief of chest congestion, melts the sticky mucus in the respiratory and airway passages, and flushes it out through the digestive tract.



This herb is widely distributed across India. Because of its antipyretic, rejuvenating, and tonic properties, the leaves and roots of bhringraj have been used in Ayurvedic medicines. Additionally, it has antibacterial, antioxidant, immunomodulatory, and hepatotoxic effects. These properties of Bhringraj work together to reduce pneumonia-associated microbial activity and improve overall health. Bhringraj can be taken as an infusion, powder, decoction, medicated oil, or ghee (clarified butter). 


Tila seeds

Ayurvedic medicine uses tila seeds, oil, and leaves for various therapeutic purposes. It helps treat diseases of the reproductive, excretory, urinary, and respiratory systems and acts as a tonic and rejuvenator. By inhibiting the activity of the microorganisms associated with pneumonia, tila aids in its treatment.



One of the most commonly used antipyretic and immunomodulatory herbs in Ayurvedic and traditional medicines is Guduchi. In addition, it has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that can help treat pneumonia. To reduce the jwara associated with pneumonia, Guduchi is given as a svarasa (juice) at a dose of 10 ml per day in conjunction with honey or pippali churna.



Vasa is used to treat respiratory, circulatory, and nervous system-related conditions. It is a primary respiratory herb that helps alleviate cough, Kapha disorders, bronchitis, the flu, and asthma symptoms. To treat jwara (fever), sugar and honey are combined with vasa.
