Pulmonary Fibrosis

My father who is 85 has pulmonary fibrosis probably for the past 20 years but has never been officially diagnosed until a few years ago. The reason I say 20+ years is he has always had some type of allergy and was always coughing as far back as I can remember. (He worked in construction.) The pulmonologist wants to treat with conventional Prednisone, etc. but I believe they have nothing else to offer and it is all poison eventually and have taken him to a naturopath. He has started nebulized glutathione 200mg once a day. Do you recommend any other supplements? He is also on systemic enzyme therapy but must go easy as his stomach gets quite upset if it is empty. Other than his lungs he would be in great shape! The IV hydrogen peroxide therapy sounds wonderful. Do you have a recommendation here on Long Island?

The building of fibrous tissue in the lungs (a kind of scarring) is provoked by inflammation. In about 1/2 of cases the source of inflammation is not identified. Allergy is certainly a possibility. Identification of allergens by traditional scratch tests or by electrodermal screening can help the patient avoid further exposure. Therapy is aimed at preventing progression since whatever fibrosis has already occurred will not reverse. Prednisone is a powerful suppressor of inflammation, but has side-effects many people choose not to live with. If I had pulmonary fibrosis, I would first detoxify by means specific to my condition. That might include removing sources of heavy metals and subsequent oral or IV chelation. Toxicity is one of the provoking causes of inflammation. After thorough detoxification, I would do the SanPharma Protocol to restore and regulate my immune system to balance. I cannot tell you what to do, but this is what I would do. As to finding a doctor, use our Find A Doctor service (yellow tab above).
