What Is Pulmonary Fibrosis?
Pulmonary fibrosis is an interstitial lung disease of the lower respiratory tract involving damage to the alveoli (air sacs) of the lungs, leading to reduced transfer of oxygen into the bloodstream. A number of habits, respiratory toxins, and health issues can cause scarring of your lung tissue, which is the principle symptom of pulmonary fibrosis. Lung function is impaired when fibrous tissue builds up in the lungs, reducing the organ's flexibility and its ability to transport oxygen into the bloodstream.
At other times this fibrosis of the lungs (fiber build-up) is of unknown cause and therefore termed idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. In either case, the prospect for repair of the lungs is not good. However, you can take a number of steps to otherwise increase your lung health, improve respiratory health, and restore some of the energy you have probably lost to reduced lung function.
A pulmonary fibrosis diagnosis likely comes after you have experienced symptoms including shortness of breath, weight loss, exhaustion, and possibly sore muscles. If not addressed in time, a lung transplant may become a necessary option. Your doctor will start with standard lung function tests but will have to progress at least to chest imaging and perhaps to a lung biopsy for conclusive diagnosis of pulmonary fibrosis.
Natural Remedies for Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Treatment
Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation is yet again a popular home remedy for lung diseases of various kinds, as here for pulmonary fibrosis. Even more popular is a remedy from our resident expert, Ted from Bangkok, who proposes a slate of herbal remedies and complementary medicine therapies to improve lung function and perhaps reduce scar tissue on the lungs.

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] After reading your informtion on different herbal and remedies for Pulmonary Fibrosis, I am willing to share our information to try and help others.
My partner was diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. Or UPF..The radiologists are not sure which type it is on the catscan and would like him to have a lung biopsy. Which at this time, he is not willing to do. Last November after seeing an M.D., they told him he had Pneumonia (which now the pulmonary doctors say he "never had", but has IPF.. And this November will be a year. 2009
He is taking 2 Chinese herbs, Clear Air (Perilla Fruit) AND Cordyceps PS (Dong Chong Xia Cao) One in the morning and one at night. Also NAC (N-A CETYL-CYSTEINE) 600 MG. one in morn. and one at night.
He perceives that this has improved his breathing, as before he was only able to climb 3 flights of stairs and now can do at least 5 flights of stairs. And the oxygen levels have improved, according to doctors tests.
After reading the testimonils of others on this site and Ted's info, we're interested in pursueing other remidies as well.
