This article separately examines the functioning of bacteria such as klebsiella pneumoniae. Its presence in the intestines of any adult or child is considered an absolutely normal factor. This microorganism even participates in the process of digesting food and maintaining a healthy intestinal microflora.

What happens when its population goes beyond the norm, and what consequences this can bring to human health - we will consider below.

Rod-shaped bacteria of the klebsiella class live motionlessly in a suitable acid-base environment in large colonies. By conducting research to isolate these bacteria under sterile conditions, scientists were able to isolate 80 separate strains of Klebsiella.

This is a very high indicator for this kind of microorganism, indicating a highly developed adaptive function of this bacterium, its ability to change and adapt to the proposed circumstances.

Immobile and paired, they are harmful to humans only if the body of the homosapiens has already been exposed to other viral infections, its protective function is reduced, and immunity is completely weakened.

What does klebsiella affect


Actively multiplying in the human intestine against the background of reduced immunity or chronic illness, klebsiella pneumoniae begins to provoke various inflammatory processes of internal organs and mucous membranes.

It can affect any part of the body and become the causative agent for the development of diseases such as:

  • pneumonia, rhinoscleroma. The bacterium affects the bronchi, mucous membranes and respiratory tract;
  • gastritis, enteritis. The bacterium affects the gastrointestinal tract;
  • cystitis, prostatitis, pyelonephritis. The bacteria affect the organs of the urinary and reproductive systems;
  • sepsis. The bacterium affects the vascular link of various organs and systems.

Klebsiella disease can be deadly. This bacterium can cause sepsis of the cerebral cortex, trigger irreversible processes. But in seventy percent of the detection of klebsiella pneumoniae, its effect on the upper respiratory tract is observed, hence a separate type of pneumonia, called Klebsiella disease, is distinguished.

Klebsiella infection


Treatment for diseases caused by the bacterium klebsiella pneumoniae depends on the type of body system affected and the stage of the disease. It is prescribed by the doctor individually. The specialist can also prescribe inpatient treatment.

Without fail prescribes a course of bacteriophages or prebiotics, because the goal of treatment is not only to eliminate the symptoms of the disease, expelling the bacterial population from the body, but also to bring health to balance, return the intestinal and stomach microflora, and cleanse the internal organs from the effects of weak and unstable functioning of the body.

The general rule for the treatment of all diseases caused by klebsiella pneumoniae is to follow a strict diet:

  • strict restriction of the consumption of fried, salty and fatty foods;
  • a complete ban on pickles, smoked meats and marinades;
  • fifteen to twenty minutes before each meal, you should use a rosehip decoction or "Holosas" - a mild choleretic agent. Do not drink food;
  • replacement of ordinary bread and bakery products with yeast-free;
  • compliance with the protein norm: the patient's diet should be enriched with fish and seafood;
  • also, to strengthen the immune system, it is necessary to consume dairy products, cottage cheese daily;
  • do not impose strict restrictions on food intake, eat in small portions, but often.

Unconventional help

Treatment of Klebsiella with folk methods is a fairly justified course, if the disease has not taken an acute form and has not had time to go into a severe phase.

The first of these folk helpers is a simple mixture of cranberries and apples. It is a sour and tart food enriched with vitamin C and has pronounced anti-inflammatory properties. You need to take it three times a day, half an hour before the main meals, for ten to fourteen days.

Also pathogenic for harmful intestinal microorganisms is a decoction of chamomile and plantain. Chamomile has an astringent and disinfecting, restorative effect, and plantain is an excellent antiseptic, it thoroughly cleans all the space inside the stomach and intestines. It is necessary to drink such a broth on an empty stomach for several weeks.

The course of taking blue iodine is extremely effective. The cooking secret is simple. Pour two tablespoons of potato starch with a glass of water, mix thoroughly and brew the resulting mixture with boiling water two to one. Add a teaspoon of sugar, a pinch of citric acid and a few drops of iodine to the gray jelly.

Kissel will take on a beautiful blue color. It does not have a pronounced taste and smell, therefore it is well accepted by the body. Drink blue iodine, pre-cooled, on an empty stomach, one glass per day. After taking blue iodine, you must refrain from food for another hour.

You can store such jelly in the refrigerator for no more than two days. Drink course: five days after five days of pause, three approaches.

How not to get sick

The Klebsiella bacterium in the intestines of adults, the symptoms of which are similar to those of colds, can only appear in the body if the immune system is significantly weakened.

Therefore, in order to prevent diseases provoked by klebsiella pneumoniae, it is necessary to keep your body in good shape and undergo immunity protection procedures on a quarterly basis.

Among these, we suggest you consider the following methods:

  • eat more vegetables and fruits, drink freshly squeezed juices;
  • temper the body;
  • do sport;
  • drink courses of vitamins every first month of the new season;
  • Every day, take nutritional supplements that are necessary for you (perhaps it will be vitamins of group B or C, L-carnitine, riboflavin or beta-carotene);
  • take a fifteen-day course of body support with blue iodine (a “cocktail” of starch, glucose, citric acid and regular iodine is a magical and very cheap remedy for immunity)

You should also follow simple hygiene products: wash your hands when coming from the street, thoroughly clean the purchased fruits and vegetables. The bacterium klebsiella pneumoniae can live for a long time in soil or water, it is not difficult for it to penetrate the body and "make friends" with their own kind.
