Can I take effective herbal therapies to treat a legionnaires' disease?

No.: Legionnaires' is caused be a bacteria and is potentially fatal. I applaud those wanting to try to find natural remedies for infections - sinusitis and bronchitis are ones that mostly don't need antibiotics. The big 'l' is different. Get treated by a doctor. The later you delay appropriate treatment, the higher risk of complications and dying from the disease. Good luck.

Blood thickeners: One precaution while flying is to avoid deep vein thrombosis which is more likely if you have a tendency to form clots more easily. That said, I am unaware of any herbal medication that does this.
