I’ve had firsthand experience using elderberry juice (along with a few drops of peppermint) to cure pneumonia, both in myself and my livestock. Had a prized Nubian buck down with pneumonia (he had been standing in the cold rain bleating to the does in heat from his paddock), and thought I was losing him. Gave him a syringe full of elderberry juice, about 6 oz. with the peppermint in it and in minutes he was up, and in a few hours he was not only up and breathing ok, but running back out to do a repeat performance which made him sick to begin with. Ended up locking him in his stall any time it was cold and raining. Never seen it fail to work, and took about 36 hours for a complete cure. I’m a naturopath and truly believe in the healing power of plants.
