Treat Aspergillosis Naturally

Aspergillosis is the name given to a group of infections that are caused by a fungal mold known as aspergillus. It is most often found in the lungs as the fungus thrives in oxygen rich environments. Most people are naturally immune to it as it is found quite commonly in our everyday world; those most at risk are those with compromised immune systems. There are four main types of aspergillosis: allergic, aspergilloma, chronic necrotizing, and invasive pulmonary. Not all will present symptoms and if symptoms do become present you should seek medical attention immediately.
