Bird Fanciers Lung -Hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP)

Hi there,

It has been a few years since I worked on this site.

I was diagnosed with Bird Fanciers Lung in 2015 after almost dying at Flinders Medical Center.

It has been a long and arduous journey back from the brink of death. I would have died without modern medicine and antibiotics. Natural health and healing is not infallible but it was also integral to my health and healing. I would not be fit and active if I did not embrace every natural healing method I could find and afford.

I am safe with Swiz because she bathes daily. We also use filters inside and encourage her to play outside. She is free flight but rarely leaves our yard.

Native to Australia, Rainbow Lorikeets are nectar eating birds. They have a long bristly tongue that they insert into the native flowers to collect the pollen.  In Spring the wild lorikeets can be seen with beaks covered in yellow pollen.  In tropical areas they are also often found drunk, from eating fermented fruit.
