Cure Pulmonary Fibrosis: Lung Disease Natural Remedies

Last Modified on Nov 22, 2015

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.

Positive thinking is everyones focus. Never giving up!

[YEA]  Dear all,

My husband was diagnosed with UIP (Usual Interstitial Pneumonia) in February 2015. Before that for about 2 years he was losing weight and becoming forgetful. After many doctors visits during nothing could be found wrong with him we ended up with this diagnosis. He went onto medication for 1 month and became so ill that within 2 weeks he could not even write. This is a man who previously weighed 82 kg's down to 69 kg's but still very active. My husband made the decision that he was not going to use this medication ever again as it made him so ill. He got this illness due to dust in his workplace.

I started looking for natural remedies and found the Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide information. I bought it at 35% volume. (This can turn your skin white and lightly irritated - wash with lots of water - but rather use gloves). I diluted the 35% down to 3 % with distilled water and bought nasal spray containers (threw out the medication and washed the bottles and sprays well). Then I started him with the sprays up to 10 times a day and within 3 days his coughing was nearly gone and his chest better.

Then I started him drinking the 35% at 1 drop 3 times a day in a glass of distilled water and worked up to 15 drops 3 times a day but he started feeling nauseous and we went down to 12 drops again. I would also put 5 ml of the 35% into a humidifier (fill it with water) and put it close to his side of the bed during the night. All of this was good but I wanted more. I also started feeding him 3 meals a day with lots of nice things to entice him to eat more and gave him two protein and bulk shakes a day. Then I started looking for a medical doctor who works with Hydrogen Peroxide and believe it or not I found her. She is excellent. She was very impressed that my husband was already using Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide and she gave him a very good physical but then did something that I have never seen any medical doctor do before. She took a drop of his blood (through his finger like a diabetic would do to measure his sugar) - put it under a microscope and showed us that his wonderful body had started producing a lot of red blood cells which could grab every drop of oxygen that came in to transport it where needed BUT unfortunately the red blood cells were sticking to each other and this could cause either blood cloths or strokes - so she immediately put him on a protocol which included magnesium and b vitamins and 2% FGHP intravenously. My husband started picking up weight and he has painted the house outside, the roof and works hard in the garden. His breathing is fast 22 breaths per minute (I timed him with a stopwatch during the night while he was sleeping a couple of times). (Ha ha I bet you think that I am mad but I am not just anxiety filled stressed and very very concerned about this wonderful man who I have been married to for nearly 40 years). Unfortunately they have now told us that he has honeycombing of the lungs which is fatal and they (the doctors) see this as end stage. My husband is still working in the garden - very hard - putting in sprayers and sawing off tree limbs very high in the trees etc.

Our wonderful doctor has told us that she cannot cure him but that we will handle everything as it happens. In the meantime he picked up weight to 74.7 kg (during a holiday while he was not working so hard and eating very well as I was around him the whole day with food and shakes). He does drink serrapeptase and vit c and alkanizer and MSM powder and as soon as the serrapeptase is up we will start with quercetin bromelain. In the meantime we have had a discussion where my husband chooses quality of life over quantity and instead of crying (although I am very stressed) we enjoy every day that we have.

I hope that this gives some of you with pulmonary fibrosis new hope and or at least something to follow-up on. I myself have a problem with my chest feeling very tight at times and the 3% spray really really helps. God bless you all. If there is anyone that can give me the name of the gout medication to use I will also let my husband give it a try or if anyone knows of anything that will stop or even turn around the honeycombing it will be very much appreciated.

Blessings, Audrey

In my work, I have studied fungus, mold, yeast. In Arizona and California, Utah, parts of Florida, there is a disease called Valley Fever. It comes from a mold under the sand. This condition started many years ago in California during a earthquake. The very old sand came up and since than with all the building going on, this disease is everywhere. The honeycombing with a symptom of the mold disease.

I know you are not in the USA but the symptoms are the same.

[YEA]  Pulmonary Fibrosis. For the past 11 days I have been taken 35% up to 75 drops daily. My lungs are in the process of being cured. my ears are begining to open once again. My chest is beginning to feel almost in order once again. Amen! I have additional energy, breathing is coming back in short spans, yet it is coming back... The Doctors reports as of 2 weeks back is Cancer in the Lung... Yet, I mentioned the product to him, and he made another apointment for the 31st of this month. I will let you know.

Pulmonary Fibrosis: Has the gentleman who was taking 3.5% H/Peroxide (75 drops in water daily) reported any further progress in his IPF and is the 75 drops spread over a number of drinks during the day or does he take it as one single does? Would you kindly direct these questions to him, if at all possible. I will be checking daily to see if he has sent a reply, or you could give him my e/m address if you like as I am most interested in his outcomes.

[YEA]   My name is Jimmy Vou... I've had Pulmonary Fibrosis since 2005... A little over five (5) years.. February 2008 I can to the point that my chest started to cave in... You could hear my breathing down the street... I thought I was in the pathway of Going Home to meet my Jesus... Amen...! But something told me to start searching the Net for some type of solution that could either help "me" or just say goodbye...

It was about 3 days after I started taking Hydrogen Peroxide 35% Food Grade... that my lungs started to become normal once again... My breathing was starting to open up once again... My throat and face started to feel much better... About 4 months later I stopped, and I believe approximately 30 days later the latter was returning... so I immediately started taking Hydrogen Peroxide 35% Food Grade...

Since then, I have been wonderment to many people including my Doctors... They at first told me to stop taking H.P. 35% Food Grade, that it wasn't any good for me. I asked them if they had the same disease as mine would you at least try something that might help... Each one at different time shut-up... Now they are asking me how I feel. I tell them all... I'm still here doing all I can to strengthen my ability to stay in the condition until I get better then I am today... The last doctor I talked with, he told me that I had about another 3 to 4 years left... I just turned 70. And I feel good... Amen!

If there is any information that could be helpful, please don't hesitate to contact me...

pulmonary fibrosis - I am confused as to what "food grade" hydrogen peroxide is? Jummy Vu said he used 35%, Ted from Bankok says about 4%.. How much do you take at once and how often?

EC: Hi Becky,

Food grade is 35% hydrogen peroxide, which must diluted down to (at least) 3% or 4% with distilled water. Read more about it:

New addition to the list of IPF patients, since Jan. 2011. the first thing out from the hospital and I stumbled upon this site (and some others as well) for alternative treatment.

I have been trying many of them especially the ones that have some clear instruction and or logical possibility of helping the lungs. So far nothing proven to be beneficial. I am planning to continue Super bio Curcumin, and licorice root caps twice a day and drop serrapeptase and nattokinase. BTW I am able to get and taking Pirfenidone 200 which is by far the best proven alternative in medical science.

I suggest if anyone wants to be helpful to the sufferers of this dreaded disease, please be specific, detailed in terms of your experience or suggestion. None of the anecdotes here are being specific in terms of preparation and use of the alternative treatment. I. E. Aloe vera, D-Mannose, sodium perborate, Vitamin B3, H2O2 0.5% etc. You could actually cause some harm to those who read and try instead of helping them.

The program outlined for the best way to use HP is only a suggestion, but it is based on years of experience, and reports from thousands of users. Those who choose to go at a slower pace can expect to progress more slowly, but that certainly is an option. The program is not carved in stone and keep in mind that it can be adapted to fit individual needs. Individuals who have had transplants should not undertake an H202 program. H202 stimulates the immune system and could possibly cause a rejection of the organ.

Day # -Number of Drops/ Times Per Day

  • 1 - 3 / 3
  • 2 - 4 / 3
  • 3 - 5 / 3
  • 4 - 6 / 3
  • 5 - 7 / 3
  • 6 - 8 / 3
  • 7 - 9 / 3
  • 8 - 10 / 3
  • 9 - 12 / 3
  • 10 - 14 / 3
  • 11 - 16 / 3
  • 12 - 18 / 3
  • 13 - 20 / 3
  • 14 - 22 / 3
  • 15 - 24 / 3
  • 16 - 25 / 3

Maintenance Dosage
In most situations after the above 21 day program, the amount of H202 can be tapered off gradually as follows:

  • 25 drops once every other day for 1 week
  • 25 drops once every third day for 2 weeks
  • 25 drops once every fourth day for 3 weeks

This can then be reduced to between 5 and 15 drops per week based on how one feels. Those with more serious problems will often benefit from staying on 25 drops three times a day for one to three weeks, then tapering down to 25 drops two times daily until the problem is resolved (possibly as long as six months). Those with chronic systemic Candidiasis may need to start with 1 drop three times a day, then 2 drops three times a day before starting the above schedule. It is important that H202 be taken on an empty stomach. This is best accomplished by taking it either one hour before meals or three hours after meals. If there is food in the stomach, the reaction of H202 on any bacteria present may cause excess foaming, indigestion, and possibly even vomiting. Additionally, some animal research indicates that when H202 given orally combines with iron and small amounts of vitamin C in the stomach, hydroxyl radicals are created (J Inorg Biochem 89;35(1):55-69). The bleach-like aftertaste of H202 can be lessened by chewing one of the sugar-free cinnamon gums. Some individuals taking H202 immediately before bedtime have a difficult time getting to sleep. This is probably due to a sense of alertness triggered by an increase of oxygen at the cellular level. The oral dosage schedule is basically the same for all conditions. There are several points to keep in mind, however.

Some individuals may experience upset stomach. If this occurs it is recommended that one not stop the program, but rather remain at the current dosage level or reduce it to the previous level until the problem stops. (Some patients have been able to solve the nausea problem by taking three or four lecithin capsules at the same time they take the H202. ) During the program it's not uncommon to experience what is known as a healing crisis. As dead bacteria and toxins are released from your body it may temporarily exceed your capacity to eliminate them quickly enough. In some individuals this overload may cause fatigue, diarrhea, headaches, skin eruptions, cold or flu-like symptoms, and/or nausea. One should not discontinue using the peroxide to stop this cleansing. By continuing the program, toxins will clear the body sooner and this healing crisis will pass rather quickly.

If you are not already taking vitamin E and an acidophilus product, I recommend starting them before going on H202. Vitamin E can make more efficient use of any oxygen available and acidophilus will help re-establish the beneficial bacterial flora in the lower bowel and also help in the internal production of hydrogen peroxide.

The above drop schedule is for 35% into distilled water or juice. A full glass of water (4 to 8 oz.) is recommended. So it would be 3 drops (35%) into glass of water or juice, on empty stomach 3 times a day... etc... as the schedule indicates. So at this dilution it should be well under 3%, to start off with anyway.

If you need to dilute it, recommendations are 1 part h202 to 11 parts distilled water. This will make 3%.

35% can cause discomfort if gotten on skin, so use caution. It will whiten the skin and cause sharp nerve pain, which can be lessened by running under cold water. It usually doesn't last very long.

35% taken orally straight can cause a trip to the doctor, so don't do it. :)

Oh, and I'm not an expert, just relaying what I know from what I've read and experienced.

[YEA]   I usually don't do this but it may help someone to make a comparison. I am trying the H202 therapy. I reduced the food grade H202 to 3%(per instuctions) & I was given a small compressor (rented through Medicare for another treatment) and I "smoke" the vapors for once a day to start. Iuse about half a thimble of the mixture. I can't tell whether it is my imagination but I seem to feel better and I am producing a more productive cough than with the other meds that I've tried (TV commercials). I'm pretty active with walking giving most of my troubles. I'll be seeing a pulmonary specialist next week and see what he recommends for his treatment and then I'll drop this on him to get his reaction. I'm not too overly concerned about my future but I'll be damned if I don't give it a shot.

but it look that it is 35 but diluted to 8%


which is at 12 %

First, which is best to buy?

Second what ever I get.. then I need to increase dosage to make it at 35%.. so if I buy the one of 8% ... I need to multiple dosage by approx x4 for each day?????

What do you know about vilac plus and where can it be purchased. Does it work for pulmonary fibrosis?

Replied by Weddy
Houston, Tx, Us

Some of my family has gout, so we're quite familiar with medications and alternatives. So when my father with pulmonary fibrosis was given a prescription for a "gout medicine", we were all confused - did Daddy get gout older than other family members? After asking a few of his hospice nurses, one finally knew the actual reason: Protein breaking down produces purines, and lung tissues break down more quickly with advanced pulmonary fibrosis, therefore producing more purines. AND since purines aggravate pulmonary fibrosis, it becomes a snowball/avalanche, so they've found that using gout medications helps slow the avalanche of purines.

Back to gout and alternative treatments. Although vinegar is an acid, it actually alkalizes the body. So when gout sufferers alkalize their body, their blood can hold more uric acid in the blood (as a liquid), so the uric acid crystals in their joints and organs (lungs in Daddy's case) disolve into their blood better. If they're able to clear this liquid uric acid via their kidneys, yay keep drinking vinegar. But not all gout sufferers can clear uric acid as efficiently as others - even if disolved in their blood.

Supposedly anthocyanins helps to clear disolved uric acid from the body. Anthocyanins come from darkly colored foods like blackberries, blueberries, sour cherries, black eggplant skins, turtle bean broth (not the beans, just the liquid after cooking).

So I'm guessing that using both vinegar and dark foods together might help my brother who has gout, but also my father who now has uric acid issues from his pulmonary fibrosis. I'm thinking a drink with mashed blackberries or blueberries in water, with a little apple cider vinegar, and a bit of stevia as needed would make a tasty, medicinal drink.

Thank you for listing other nutraceuticals and supplements - I went through your page and found most on Amazon, so I can send Daddy a package thru them - He loves natural cures (he lives very remotely, so Amazon is nice, since we can't take a plane or bus to visit him, and I'd like to send him the supplements/nutraceuticals before I can arrange to make the trip with our older vehicle).

Weddy, thanks SO much for posting that gout info! Now I understand some connections with other issues. I have COPD, but I never smoked. Docs can't tell me why I have to be on oxygen at all other than "you are overweight" and then got the flu. So I have been on this oxygen machine for over 2 yrs now and still have to go to work, drag these heavy tanks around and be connected to something at all times. I have a tail folks! Ok.

So I have another serious problem besides lungs, that is something called lipedema, not lymphedema or plain edema. Lipedema is when the lymph system in your body makes you spread out evenly and mostly sideways. In a medical conference one doc talked about proteins. So there is a connection with how the body deals w/proteins. I have had a couple 'grout bumps' on my heels for several years now. So it has to be connected. I get sick as a dog if I take any protease type enzymes for fat digesting enzymes. Just plain can't do it. So finding that lung issues can be fibers related to scaring, or not clearing out dead tissue or scaring from other causes (maybe asbestos or smoke) is a revelation to me. I know this is related to body acidity, but like someone says, if your kidneys can't get it out of the body, you still have a problem. I think my liver, kidney and adrenal are all maxed out.

So thanks again, going to give this some more research, just had to pop in here and let you know!

Diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis from Rheumatoid Arthritis. No treatment prescribed by respirologist. Should I try foodgrade 35% hydrogen peroxide?

Posted by Tiara (India) on 07/29/2013

I suffered from tuberculosis in the lungs. Was not detected in my spit but in the fluid taken out by biopsies... It was in 2007. I finished the course of antibiotics. Completely cured.. In 2009 I had a baby. No repeats even in hormonal change... I have scar in my lungs.. Is there anything that can make it disappear? I read about hydrogen peroxide... But I don't know how to consume it.. What dose? Please. Help me cause I am travelling to the Gulf for employment.

My mother was diagnosed with IPF in 2008. She has improved with sunflower oil pulling. In a day or two I'm planing to start Hydrogen peroxide drops delivered to the patient in water. To be on the safe side I will start with 7 drops per glass of water. Lets see if it helps. Prayers can change destinies.

10 yrs ago I have pneumonia fluid in the lungs, hospital for 10 days with very potent antibiotics did not work diarrhea no appetite did not get well, then sent home with pique line antibiotics again. Miraculously, got well no fever but pain in the back. Dr said I had scarring in the lungs.

I start doing my own research supplementing with high dose vitamin c, magnesium, repair my gut with colostrum and probiotics and start organic only 2000 mg NAC fish oil high dose, and alpha lipoic acid and many more antioxidant. I avoid Cafo meat grass fed if possible.

Have P.E every year my GP said I was lucky. He didn't ask me what I do I'm willing to share with him, but not interested.

Hope it helps someone.

This P.F. condition I have suffered with for decades and eventually found the cause is a Mycoplasma Infection. This is certainly not always the case, but where there is infection and fibrosis, the chances are likely. The immune & repair mechanisms of the lungs are inhibited by the mycoplasma, thus chronic conditions and sometimes fatal.

Here is the E.C. page for more info

As for effective treatments, Borax is best for whole body, along with Colloidal Silver, Uva Ursi, Oregon Grape + Garlic, among many other herbs like Pau d' Arco, Cat's Claw, etc..

For the lungs specifically I do occasional Magnet Therapy, then Zapping, then nebulize Colloidal Silver with good results, yet have other conditions that will not allow complete healing (working on that).

The synthetic antibiotic Doxycycline has many good reviews in this case, as it both inhibits mycoplasma replication and stimulates lung repair or regeneration.

Hi, I'm Indian origin and my dad 61 years old was Diagnosed with IPF around one and half years back, we started the treatment straight away which helped him cope the initial stage, but his breathing issue becomes worst in winters overall he was doing alright until recently he was in fever all the time and now the doctors are saying this is because of phenomia prescribed medicines are not working.

I'm new to this site and want to know what are the other natural treatments along with the antibiotics doctors are giving him.

Thanks in Advance, Arpit

I live in the US and I bought esbriet as well, at this point I don't care if it does not help or now, I'll give it a shot anyway, my dad has been getting worse by the day, unfortunately not any of the natural medicine works..

My wife was recently diagnosed with IPF. We are currently doing a series of Hydrogen peroxide IVs and Taking Serrapeptase,MSC and COQ10. She is also on nightly Oxygen. I am concerned that the oxygen may become habitual and may even be a detriment. We are hoping for a cure or at least a stop in progression. What do you recomend? Thanks Jack.

Since my letter of 6/1/09 we have been doing a variety of remedies for my wife's IPF. I feel we are progressing slowly with NAC, Enzymes, MSM etc. I can't say it's a cure but we couldn't do nothing. I am hoping for several more years together and am still looking for more methods to make her life better. The cooler weather will be a plus.

I am thankful to Ms. Deirdre Layne for the information supplied through your website. I have seen three letters from Jimmy of Dallas, Texas who has informed that he has been cured from his pulmonary fibrosis by taking 35% food grade H2O2 in his two letters, at the same time he has written in one of his letter dated 05. 17. 2008 that he has been cured through oil-pulling. Are all these 3 letters written by the same person? In case oil-pulling method, how long Jimmy had been suffering from the disease and how long it took to him for complete healing? Is there any other testimonials on the success of oil pulling method for treating pulmonary fibrosis. Kindly inform. Thanks.

If you are interested in the healing of your lungs... please go to the health store and purchase one (1) bottle of this oil and place it within your mouth and swish it around until it turns white; spit it out and then brush your teeth and wash your mouth with tooth paste... As well look on the Net for: "Oil Pulling Cure" and learn what it will do for you... Jimmy.

My mother has been diagnosed with Pulmonary Edema and Pulmonary Fibrosis. After extensive search, I reached this website and there seems to be a ray of hope. I saw posts from a few like Jimmy Vou and Maureen who have benefited from the alternative treatments. And my questions is related to that only.

My mother has been prescribed NAC-600 (twice a day), Sildenafil (thrice a day) and Diuretic (twice a day). I would like to know if:

1. Aloe Vera Juice, Apple Cider Vinegar and H2O2 treatment can be given in addition to the on going allopathic treatment or not.

2. Can Aloe Vera juice and Apple Cider Vinegar be mixed together and given at one go or need to be given separately.

3. My mother is also experiencing Diarrhea, so will Aloe Vera cause problems as this is considered to act as laxative and may increase this Diarrhea problem.

4. Is Aloe Vera juice what should be given or is it Aloe Vera Oil?

5. As Apple Cider Vinegar acts as diuretic itself, so will it cause problems for my mother as she is already prescribed a diuretic.

If someone can help me with these queries I will appreciate that.

Thanks, Lakhwant

Kk: Herbs that help kidney function are Cranberry, Parsley, and Slippery Elm.

As for the p fibrosis, the common antibiotic Doxycycline is effective. How the Doxy reacts w/ the other meds I don't know, check w/ doctor or pharmacist.

The product "PainRx" is an herbal extract that reduces inflammation which is a leading factor in progressive fibrosis.

Hello everybody, first of all I would like to thank everymember on this site for sharing their experiences and situations, and recommendations, this definatelly helps other users to have a better understanding about their ilnesses.

My dad suffers from pulmonary fibrosis since 2010, it seems like every time situations gets worse, he gets tired easily, and constantly has to be on artificial oxygen.

After reading posts about similar situations on this site, I saw that many users are relying on aloe vera oil juice and apple cider vinegar, I definitely think this will help improve my dad's health, I just want to know what would be the ideal portions of this two products and what would be the right amount of times to drink it. Please anyone am waiting for an advice, ...

Dear Octavio,

I am so sorry about your father's suffering. And it is hard to watch our parents suffer. He is blessed to have you wanting to help him!

Apple Cider Vinegar is a good thing to try. Safe and inexpensive. Try to find raw and unpastuerized. Start him on 1 teapsoon per day in a glass of water. The next week, try 2 teaspoons per day. The next week, try 3 teaspoons per day. Times of day aren't critical--one glass in the morning and one in the evening. I just sip on my vinegar water throughout the day.

I am hoping someone else knows about dosing the Aloe, I don't have much experience with that.

Do some research on this site about Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation therapy. It helps get oxygen to the lungs and helps with healing. We have used this for my asthmatic daughter with success.

I also bought an essential oil nebulizer for my daughter with an essential oil blend called "Lung Healing. " It has helped her a lot. I highly recommend it, though a diffuser is not cheap.

I get the oil blend here:

If you have a way to make him fresh carrot juice, that would be really good for him.

Please keep us posted on how things work for him.
