Almost always the pneumonia is caused by bacteria pneumococci, streptococci and staphylococci, more rarely, says Sergio Harari (you can ask a consultation), business unit director of pulmonology at San Giuseppe di Milano.

Small guide to help in the choice between ice and boule

Thermotherapy, namely the use of hot water bottle, is shown in many cases to alleviate the pain. In others, however, it takes the cold.

Pythagoras perhaps exaggerated to consider the elixir of life, but of course the honey is a great ally for health.

In practice, it acts as a natural antibiotic. With the arrival of the first cold one teaspoon of honey in the morning, dissolved in milk, tea or coffee or spread on bread, it helps to disinfect the respiratory tract and preventing and combating coughs, colds and sore throat.
