Meningitis Natural Remedies

Updated on October 15, 2012

Meningitis and septicaemia are deadly diseases that can kill in hours.

Meningitis is the inflammation of the lining around the brain and spinal cord. Septicaemia is the blood poisoning form of the disease.

Meningitis and septicaemia can cause symptoms such as a severe headache, vomiting, high fever, stiff neck and sensitivity to light. Many people (but not all) also develop a distinctive skin rash.


Meningitis is typically caused by a viral infection, although fungal or bacterial infections have been known to be a cause as well. When the infectious antigen enters the bloodstream, it travels through the body and migrates into the brain and the spinal cord, resulting in a serious infection. Pneumococcus is the most common cause of meningitis in the United States. Prior to 1990, a strain of the influenza virus known as influenza type b was the leading cause of meningitis, although now there is a vaccine that has significantly reduced the number of cases presented annually.

Meningitis Symptoms

The symptoms of meningitis are possible to include a very high fever, sleepiness, difficulty waking up, seizures, vomiting or nausea accompanied by a headache, confusion, difficulty concentrating, difficulty maintaining eye contact (especially in the very young), stiff neck, loss of appetite, lack of thirst, sensitivity to light, a severe headache, and in some types of meningitis, a rash. Sometimes the earlier signs of meningitis include ice cold hands or ice cold feet, leg pain, and very pale skin. Infants and newborn typically do not display all of the symptoms of an older individual, but they may cry incessantly, refuse to eat, retain or experience a periodic bulge of the soft spot on the head, and in the later stages experience a body spasm which results in severe hyper-extension of the body.

Chlorella is a tiny plant that contains the highest known quantity of chlorophyll within a natural source. Chlorophyll is the 'green blood' of all plant life and has a chemical structure very similar to hemoglobin, our own red blood molecules. Chlorophyll carries oxygen around the blood supply and builds the red blood cell count. It cleanses and purifies the blood stream. Chlorella contains more than 20 vitamins and minerals, - all in highly 'bio-available’ form. Unlike synthetically produced supplements, the vitamins and minerals found in chlorella are all present in a form that the human body was designed to digest and absorb easily and completely. A superb natural remedy during the recovery from Meningitis.

More Home Remedies for Meningitis:

Garlic Supplement:

As we have come to know garlic as a natural healer, it’s no surprise that it can work well as a home remedy for meningitis.

In this instance, taking a garlic capsule or supplement can prove to be the most beneficial.

Garlic has natural antibiotic properties and can therefore help to heal the source of the virus or bacteria that may be causing the problem.

It’s important to take this until all of the symptoms clear up for the best effects.

Ginseng Herbal Supplement:

Though it has many different healing properties, there is one specifically that works well in this instance.

Taking ginseng works well because it helps to naturally boost the immune system, this is very important if you have meningitis.

Therefore taking ginseng as a home remedy for meningitis may be of great help, particularly if taken at the first signs of the illness.

Astralgus Herbal Supplement:

Yet another herbal supplement that we look to for its natural and inherent healing properties.

Astralgus also happens to boost the immune system which is very important with this illness.

Take astralgus as a home remedy for meningitis from the very beginning, and until all of the symptoms clear up to ensure it works as it should.

Is this the right path to take?

Home remedies could be the wrong path to take. But I advise to conduct some prevention. Nothing ever beats a true medical professional.


Always Consult a doctor / Medical Professional.
