Pulmonary Fibrosis

Scarring of the Lungs

Scarring of the Lungs

First, what is Pulmonary Fibrosis?   Pulmonary Fibrosis literally means lung (pulmonary) scarring (fibrosis). The lung scarring occurs in the tissue of the lung called the interstitium, which supports the structures of the lung (air sacs/alveoli). There are an estimated 130-200 related diseases called Interstitial Lung Disease that are similar in characteristics and can result in scarring. Pulmonary Fibrosis causes the lung tissue to thicken and become stiff. Scarring inhibits oxygen from entering the blood stream.”

Symptoms include “shortness of breath (dyspnea), especially during or after physical activity, and a dry cough.” -Mayo Clinic

What damages your lungs?  There are quite a few possible causes, including environmental factors, gerd, radiation, and various medical conditions, but don’t be surprised that it could be your medication. Many drugs can damage your lungs, especially chemotherapy drugs (methotrexate, cyclophosphamide); medications used to treat heart arrhythmias and other cardiovascular problems (amiodarone, propranolol); certain psychiatric medications; and some antibiotics (nitrofurantoin, sulfasalazine).”-Mayo Clinic

If you are in the advanced stages of Pulmonary Fibrosis, your doctor may give you little hope.  “No cure exists for pulmonary fibrosis, and current treatments often fail to slow the progress of the disease or relieve symptoms.”-Mayo Clinic

Before you give up, alternative medications may be your best option.  Why Enzymes work:  “Enzymes eat scar tissue and fibrosis. Fibrosis is scar tissue and most doctors learn in anatomy that it is fibrosis that eventually kills us all. Let me explain. As we age, which starts at 27, we have a diminishing of the body’s output of enzymes. This is because we make a finite amount of enzymes in a lifetime and we use up a good deal of them by the time we reach our 40′s (Cystic Fibrosis patients who have virtually no enzyme production to speak of, even as children usually don’t make it past their 20′s before they die of the restriction and shrinkage in the lungs from the formation of fibrosis or scar tissue).

So our body begins to dole out our enzymes with an eyedropper instead of with a tablespoon. Result: the repair mechanism of the body goes off balance and has nothing to reduce the over abundance of fibrin it deposits in nearly everything from simple cuts, to the inside of our internal organs and blood vessels. It is then when most women begin to develop things like fibrocystic breast disease, uterine fibroids, and endometriosis. We all grow arterial sclerotic (meaning scar tissue) plaque, and have fibrin begin to spider web its way inside of our internal organs, reducing their size and function over time. This is why as we age our wounds heal with thicker, less pliable, weaker and very visible scars.

If we replace the lost enzymes, we can control and reduce the amount of scar tissue and fibrosis our bodies have. As physicians in the US are now discovering, even old scar tissue can be “eaten away” from surgical wounds, pulmonary fibrosis, and kidney fibrosis even colloid years after their formation. Medical doctors in Europe and Asia have known this and used orally administered enzymes for such for over 40 years!

Sounds too good to be true?  If you have no options, why wouldn’t you try alternative medications.  According to Biomediclabs, Within 4 weeks, patients should notice improvement of their symptoms including shortness of breath and coughing with phlegm.  After a 3-6 month treatment, patients should have significant improvement in their lung structure.  We recommend that patients take a chest x-ray before and after the treatment and compare the diagnostic results to monitor their progress.”

Before I tried alternative medications, I didn’t truly believe in miracles.  Serracor-NK was created for Pulmonary Fibrosis.  I know it has changed my life, and I have Rheumatoid Arthritis.  I believe in this product because of what it has done for me.

  1. Robert,
    I am at a loss as to what to advise to you. It sounds like your AC needs to be cleaned of mites, dust, possibly even mold. I would do that asap! Treating a disease is something you need to do sure, but if there is a cause to your Fibrosis, that is the most important thing to do. While you are making sure that your home is free of mites, dust and mold, which can make you terribly ill, you can check out some products that I will recommend for your Fibrosis if it is an ongoing issue: I recommend the cystic fibrosis bundle: http://www.biomediclabs.com/inc/sdetail/28950 This should definitely do the trick. I also recommend taking quercetin, which works with your histamine levels, meaning it is great for reducing allergic reaction. One that I have tried and enjoy is: https://www.prohealth.com/shop/product.cfm/product__code/PH25 I hope that helps you!
    thanks and hugs,
    Sarah

  2. Hi, 8 days ago, the weather here in North carolina was cool so that night, I turned off the a/c. The next morning, I turned it back on. Not 30 seconds after that, I began sneezing about 18 times in a row. Immediately my throat began burning and it became very difficult to breathe. I also started coughing really hard. Also, my eyes became red and swollen as if stung by bees with exetreme itching.

    I went to the ER room here and was told that most probably it was the release of dust mites. A few days later, it became worse so I went to the VA Center in Fayetteville, NC. It was there that I was told I have been diagnosed with Fibrosis.

    I was told there were some “spots” on my lungs which were not there before. Other than telling me that and giving me some antibiotics, I know nothing.

    The only thing I DO know it has really scared me. What can I do to combat this? I was told it was incurable. What, (if anything) can I do? Thanks.

    Sincerely,

    Bob Hasty
