Four years ago I was diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis. One 120,000 units (enteric-coated) serrapeptase (can do this three times daily - must be taken on an empty stomach) and one or two - 600 NAC (taken with vitamin C) does wonders for me. Haven't had an MRI or CT-scan since the initial one. My pulmonary doctor wanted me to have a lung biopsy (to try to figure out what caused it), but that didn't appeal to me. All the scars from working in the deli (friers) have disappeared though, as well as ALL the other scars that I had collected throughout my life-time. Serrapeptase eats away the scar tissue (as well as blockages in arteries), and the NAC thins out any mucus. I'm still here, so something must be working.
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.
I was diagnosed with IPF 2 1/2 years ago. My very experienced pulmonologist said I would be lucky to make it 5 years. I am a chiropractor and the pulmonologist said it probably started from 40 yrs exposure to xray developing chemical. I'm not convinced of that, but I know I have IPF. I am in a unique position as that I utilize a Class IV laser in my office. I began using it on myself as soon as I was diagnosed. I returned to the pulmonologist a month ago after my third CT scan. There has been no additional fibrous tissue in the lungs in the 2 12 years since starting laser therapy, and my pulmonary function tests have actually improved each time, having had 3 total. My doctor said he has never seen this before in his entire career, where the IPF became static and function improved. I refused prednisone, Esbriet, etc. though I do use an inhaler on occasion.
The laser reduces inflammation with a photochemical process. When treating musculoskeletal problems it heals tissue faster and with less scar tissue. It could be that it is keeping more scarring from taking place, but it is not actually removing it. I still have a cough, but much less frequent and severe. I'm still working and playing hard though looking at retirement fairly soon. I'm 64. The dose with the laser I use is 10 watts, 4 minutes on the front of the chest and 4 on the back for a total of 4800 joules. I started with twice a week for the first month and then went to one treatment per week. I know this is working for me and I feel like I got my future back. If I don't get worse than I am, I can live very healthy for a very long time. My goal is 20 more years. If this post helps anyone else with this horrible disease I will be thrilled. It's wonderful to have hope. Dr Hall
To recover from copd / pulmonary fibrosis / ipf, you must attack the mycoplasma infection driving the disease, reduce inflammation in the lungs and all throughout the body, destroy biofilm accumulations in the lungs and throughout the body. And reverse the fibrosis scar tissue that is forming in the lungs reducing the airways.
Many here have tried hydrogen peroxide for this condition. Hydrogen peroxide is wonderful stuff but it is only a part of the solution and not a total cure.
Ignore the tissue fibrosis and you will not recover.
There is a component in the blood called fibrin. This is the substance which creates a blood clot when you cut yourself. Without fibrin a simple cut could be fatal.
In pulmonary fibrosis, the lung tissue is under constant attack from a mycoplasma infection and the response from the body is to deposit huge amounts of fibrin in the lungs. This fibrin decreases the available air space and you slowly suffocate.
That's it until you find the answer.
The infection can be reduced by drugs like doxycycline, hydrogen peroxide spray mist inhaled, nano silver mist inhaled, dmso plus crushed garlic inhaled, or gallium nitrate used orally at less than 1% strength. In addition other techniques such as eboo, uvbi, blood electrification, gcmaf, and eating lots of coconut oil all support driving a mycoplasma infection down
But this is still not the answer as none of these things address the tissue fibrosis.
To actually recover much needed airspace there is but one way in the universe to do that effectively. Nothing else works to dissolve tissue fibrosis except systemic enzymes. The strongest one called serrapeptase.
Most types of enzymes even digestive enzymes can help control pain and inflammation but it requires serrapeptase to actually clear the lungs up where fibrin deposits are blocking air space. other enzymes wont touch it.
More enzyme use = greater fibrin removal from the lungs. Less enzyme use =you keep the disease.
Biofilm a thick gummy mucus that coats the lungs drastically reduces airspace. Biofilm typically harbors more than 500 species of bacteria mold yeast fungus and virus plus heavy metals and toxins. We can use hydrogen peroxide to eliminate biofilm but enzymes can do a really good job of that plus break down the fibrin that fills the alveoli air sacs. Serrapeptase also interferes with viral and bacterial growth in a manner very similar to that of antibiotics. When people fail to get well it is often because they have a flaw in their treatment program. Not understanding the role of systemic enzymes in pulmonary fibrosis = no cure.
Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide
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.
That is a typical response to get nowhere from conventional doctors. The trouble you are experiencing is caused by mycoplasma infection and biofilm in your lungs. Most autoimmune disorders are a not so good response by the immune system at trying a feeble attempt at eradicating this organism. Your lungs fill with fibrosis scar tissue slowly reducing your airspaces. If left untreated you will eventually struggle just to try and breathe. Lucky for you came to the right place.
Now you got some serious home work to do but I will point you in the right direction.
Go to youtube, look up "weaponised mycoplasma" Dr Garth Nicholson, then study serrapeptase a systemic enzyme. Google serrapeptase /pulmonary fibrosis or serrapeptase copd they are very similar. Our lungs are being filled with fibrin. Serrapeptase a systemic enzyme tones down an over reactive immune system and literally eats the fibrin plugging your lungs. Serrapeptase also acts against biofilm and attacks mycoplasma. It destroys biofilm and eats foreign proteins found in your blood that germs require for replication. This is the only known way to stop the disease.
Doctors give steroidal antiinflammatories for this condition. This increases the speed of disease progression since mycoplasma feeds off of preformed sterols.
Next thing go to george eby research and spend a few days there studying gallium nitrate. These two things are 99 percent of what you need to reverse the disease. Other treatments that will help are uvbi, whole body blood ozonation, blood electrification or simply buy a hbot chamber. Blood ozonation kills the mycoplasma that drives the disease. Hbot only slaps it around a bit being much weaker than ozone. Once you learn about mineral solutions like gallium nitrate you will see it is able to help a wide variety of seeming totally unrelated diseases. For example pulmonary fibrosis, cancer, multiple sclerosis, lupus, crohns, various std's, arthritis, and a mind boggling variety of other autoimmune diseases are all helped by one simple mineral solution, gallium nitrate. Yet 99.9% of the world has never heard of it. Drug companies never teach doctors about using non drug items. It competes with their interests. Imagine a cheap mineral solution that cures arthritis for a year or more after a single 90 minute exposure. If this info got out they would go broke. Thank God for Earth Clinic!
Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide
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...
Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide
Reply to all but to S.A. in particular.
I was diagnosed with IPF in 2008. Incurable disease, unknown cause, no cure and regrettably not much interest from the medical community. I can think of many possible causes: dust, fungus, pollution, second hand smoke (I'm a lifelong non-smoker) or heredity. Actually again nobody except victims pay much attention to why it occurs. I always figure: figure out the cause; figure out the cure ( ah well...). Anyway I've developed several methods to keep myself alive, the best one of course is unpleasant: Taking a worthy expectorant and after loosening the gunk (fibrin, mucus) in the lungs cough it out; this can be exhausting, particularly in the am after it builds up.
Sharing is all we can do, it's such a battle one day at a time. Diagnosed with IPF for 7.5 years and still only 64, it's been grueling for my family. Keep fighting the good fight folks and "live".
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!
I didn't mention it in the new COPD post on EC, but while melatonin is useful for COPD, it is also useful for Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF)! Here is a link to the new COPD article :
Here are links to studies of melatonin and IPF :
Melatonin is not a one trick pony and has shown efficacy in multiple health issues, yet doctors seem to mainly prescribe it as a sleep aid! If melatonin could become a patented prescription drug, it would be a blockbuster drug for what ever drug company held such a patent!
Anyone want to get rid of IPF (Idiopathic Fibrosis of lungs), please try homeopathic medicine....Nitrium Phos 200. Take this medicine everyday and be happy and trust in God. Please try to be happy all the time. Worries only add to the disease.

Michele, I believe you are on the right track by adding the NAC, this has mucous thinning properties and is anti inflammatory, among many other benefits. Please research the benefits of serratapeptase enzyme, castor oil packs combined with massage, mullein tea, iodine, essiac tea, garlic. Topically each night you might try a salve of olive or coconut oil, you can thicken with Shea or cocoa butter, but not necessary, add anti fungal, anti microbial essential oils like cinnamon, eucalyptus, tea tree, clove, nutmeg, lemon, but in my practised opinion, oregano oil is the essential and magic ingredient. Apply front and back of the chest should feel warmth penetrating chest. This greatly helped family member also put eo's in vaporiser at night with water in closed room. I am since of the opinion the reason the oregano oil helps the lungs is because it kills the mycoplasma thought to cause the condition. Combined with your NAC working on the biofilm and mucous (hiding place) I would expect even better results. For my family member she also (reluctantly) ate raw garlic clove morning and night, maybe you can try extract or pills, and added turmeric, cayenne, clove 1 tsp ea to her tea. And had significant improvement in a week. Please note oregano oil is very powerful and is usually sold 25% diluted, and I have no experience with contraindications of your stated meds, please research. Best to you.

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.

Unfortunately, melatonin is only at the animal stage of testing, so a human dose has not yet been established for Pulmonary Fibrosis. Dr. Neel is effectively using melatonin at 1 mg per kilogram of body weight in over 2000 of his Covid-19 patients. Dr. Shallenberger gives all of his patients 180 mg/day and for his stage 4 cancer patients he gives over 300 mg/day. I take 120 mg+ per night myself. If you would like to contact him to see if he has treated PF patients with melatonin, his number is (775) 884 - 3990.
Not everyone can tolerate melatonin every day so for those who plan to test it, working your way up slowly to the desired dose is a good idea. If a person does not tolerate oral melatonin, they can naturally increase their melatonin levels significantly by exposing themselves to the earlier morning sun. When melatonin is increased naturally in the body, it does not have side effects other than improved health.
On the other hand, NAC has moved past animal studies to human studies in people with Pulmonary Fibrosis to good effect and the dose that has been used is 600 mg given three times per day for a total of 1800 mg/day.
Another consideration is bringing your vitamin D level well up into the reference range of 30 ~ 100 ng/ml.
This study suggests that vitamin d may have positive effects on Pulmonary Fibrosis and has the relevance to potentially have predictive value. Many people are insufficient or deficient in their vitamin D levels.
Lastly, Red Light Therapy has shown some benefit in lung protective effects as discussed in the following article, but importantly, while you are getting morning sun exposure to naturally increase your melatonin levels, you can also get the full spectrum of red light that the sun radiates upon the earth including the infrared range of red light which is not visible to the human eye.
Importantly, red light from the sun is stronger than many units sold online and it is free for the taking from earlier morning sunlight and later afternoon sunlight which will also help to limit UV light exposure that is stronger at mid-day.
There have been quite a few posts on EC about people looking for help for IPF, but I have not seen any posts discussing melatonin and IPF.
Here are some fairly recent studies suggesting that melatonin may offer some help in this area. Melatonin has a very good safety profile and is naturally produced by the human body suggesting a lower potential for adverse reactions. Melatonin is also readily available here in the states and is fairly inexpensive.
Given the severe nature of IPF, it may be beneficial to look at as many options as possible and determine their relevance for your particular situation!
In the herbs dept for Lung Fibrosis is Hawthorn, Mullein, Gotu Kola, Comfrey or Allantoin, Schizzandra, and Astragalus.

If you are looking for alternative remedies for Pulmonary Fibrosis, it will be worthwhile to look into Melatonin :
And N Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) :
Both have very good safety profiles with melatonin having the better safety profile and both are inexpensive and readily available. Good luck!
IPF: After a triple coronary bypass about 2011 about 3 months later I noticed a continuing discomfort around my upper left side of my chest. A referral by my cardiologist to a pulmonary specialist discovered my IPF. He prescribed an albuterol compound for my nebulizer and to sleep all night with oxygen. By my second lung function text it showed a rapid deterioration in my ability to process ambient air. The Dr. arranged for me to receive a new medication called Esbriet (54 mg daily)with little results.
I located a holistic doctor who is a board certified doctor of internal medicine with 29 years of experience caring for mostly refinery workers which fit my life profile perfectly. She put me on 1800 mg of Nac daily and later Nac liquid for my nebulizer. My last lung function test after about 3 months on this protocol showed about 7% improvement across the board, which pleased her greatly. She recommended that I consider 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide intravenously 2 times a week for the next 10 weeks. I have located someone who will do this and I will begin this treatment as soon as I save up the money. I'l let ya'll know what happens. I'll see what my JESUS wants, (amen)
You might try Serrapeptase enzymes.
Try 2 ea twice day on empty stomach.Be patient, may take 4-8 weeks.It helped 80 yr.old mom, oxygen setting 4-lungs "crackling" 50%lung cap, CT scan diagnosed IPF 2years.
Google-Silkworm enzyme serrapeptase.Read the Japanese studies. Best!!
I have pulmonary fibrosis a lung disease that HAS no cure.Yet, since I have been on Sunflower Oil (cold pressed & Unrefined) my lungs within 4 days begain to have a healing effect that even the Doctor's don't quite understand?! What this oil is doing for my Lungs is or has brought back my Breathing as I have never expected. I had Cancer in my right lung and this oil has completely healed it completely... Amen! 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.

In reply to Anita from Maryland (2018) in the Oil Pulling Thread, who wrote:
"My husband has Pulmonary Fibrosis and I am looking for remedies to help him. He can no longer sit up for more than a minute. But laying in bed on his back is how he gets the best oxygen. He also suffers from anxiety and depression. He has a lot of back pain from a fall in 3 years ago. On his back his oxygen level is any where from 86 to 91% at level 2-1/2 to 3. When he panics the level goes down and we have to turn the concentrator up to 5. I am looking for any help to keep him safe and alive. Sincerely, Anita"
I was on oxygen recently and the doctors told me about proning. You lay on your stomach and the front of your lungs do not have to work so hard since your body is using the back of your lungs. My oxygen levels would go from 89 to 93 in under a minute (on oxygen ) It might work better since I had pneumonia. However the doctors at the hospital all day to prone for hours in the icu.
Also, check and see if his breathing gets worse after certain medications or food..I get chest pain right after I take some medications for pain and processed food ...I'm serious. I will pray for you all that you find relief.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis: My husband was on Esbriet and had horrible side effects. Couldn't even be in light let alone sun light. Turned his skin reddish purple with horrible itching. Now on Ofev with side effect of diarrhea. I am also giving him 2 tbs of organic cider vinegar in water once a day. Seems to help with the cough and very safe.
Also started him on NAC twice a day. Just started NAC so no improvement yet.
I don't know about a mold "connection" causing my PF. It could have been any number of things... But since I didn't get into all that with the pulmonary doctor after she told me she wanted me to have surgery for another issue that she was concerned with, in addition to the lung biopsy, there's no way for me to know. I used to cough uncontrollably also.
Will the Serrapeptase and NAC take care of it? I don't know, but the alternative is well, not good.
All I know is that there was a package for Pulmonary Fibrosis that I could not afford, so I've done what I can with the money that I have. I've tried to figure out what would be similar, as they used serrapeptase, a formula that I think had serrapeptase and nattokinese, and some other things. The closest enzyme I could find that had the other things, I found in a enzyme formula, and since we are not allowed to name a specific formula, the ingredients in it are pancreatin, protease, amylase, lipase, bromelain, rutin, papin, serrapeptase, trypsin/chymotrypsin complex, trypsin, chymotrypsin, amla fruit.
In a few months, when I can afford it, I may add that formula to my aresenal.
And then, I've used the NAC, but alternated it with mucolyxir (microdose dna). I think the objective is to get the mucus out.
I used to wheeze so loudly that I had a hard time going to sleep, and although I'm sure I wheezed throughout the day, as soon as my head hit the pillow. So that's improved, because I hardly notice it anymore.
See, I was diagnosed with asthma about a year before the other diagnosis. My doctor wanted me checked for asthma because I was coughing a lot, and it took a month for me to get the pulmonary function test. The woman who did it suggested I tell my doctor my lips were blue that day. So, who knows which came first, the chicken, or the egg (the asthma, or the pulmonary fibrosis?
I also do read healing scriptures, Psalms 103:1-4, Isaiah 53:1-6, Psalm 118:17, and all the healing that Jesus did in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. I don't see where He refused to heal anyone that came to Him.
With a number of cases of Pulmonary Fibrosis is the presence of mycoplasma infection, which has been my nemesis for many yrs. Just suggesting the possibility as mycoplasma prevents lung tissue regeneration. My theory is the cholesterol needed for repair is saturated or surrounded by the myco as it's a favorite fuel source. In your case, the laser may be killing mycoplasma. Certainly worth investigating.
I have recently had very good results killing the myco with first Magnet therapy, then Zapping, then Nebulized Colloidal Silver.
Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide
Phil - good afternoon.
There are so many incredibly sick people that can be helped with the FGHP, but do note that I am not saying that they can be cured.
Just a follow-up on my husband's condition. He is still on the same natural medications as I mentioned before but I have also started him at the end of September 2015 on Cannabis Oil (which is illegal in SA) but since then his 22 breaths per night has come down to 16. 16 is normal. Also on his lung function tests they claim that he might have the beginning of emphysema (ha ha) if they but knew his diagnosis. My husbands weight is between 71 - 73 kg's which can go down by 1.2 kg overnight. His weight should probably not be an issue but it is to me because I can only measure his "health" through his weight and lying some nights with a stop watch counting his breaths per minute while he is sleeping deeply.
I know, I sound mental or at the very least OCD but I am trying my very best to do anything that could influence his health positively. He is still active playing golf twice a week and physically working around the house although I have seen that in the last couple of weeks he is a bit more tired. He calls it being lazy - but he does not have one lazy hair on his head. I have not read of anything that can stop or slow down the honeycombing of his lungs but keeping my eyes peeled for any "new" info. I know that the oil can make your blood pressure a bit low - so hopefully that is the only problem. I hope that you find the help that you need and that you have an easier time breathing now.
Lots of best wishes for a wonderfully informative and healthy 2016. Audrey

Good afternoon to all from a wintery South Africa - I am back once again to inform you of my husband's IFP and what we have been doing. Johann is still on all the natural medicines that I mentioned before. He is still well - his breathing has come down to 14 per minutes - he is still on the cannabis oil as well. The only effect that I have seen from the cannabis oil is that his blood pressure has dropped. Further his weight goes up and down between 73.5 and 71 kg's depending on how hard he is working and playing golf and eating of course but still much better than when he was diagnosed at 69 kg's. The doctor that I use in South Africa will probably not be able to help you in the USA but try and find a medical doctor who works with natural medicines and Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide. Good luck and best wishes to all.

Hi here is my update it is Feb13th 2018. I was given 10 months to live January, 2015. I think I got my dates mixed up when I made the post.
Well, it has been three years since my diagnosis (my lung doctor is not interested in the slightest) about alternative care. I still get my serasolve and trebonase from Pivotal Health in the USA and I have to be honest without them I would not be here. I saw the lung doctor last month and was told there had been a change in my gas exchange from the lung function test. Oh well.
I am two + years in credit for my life thanks to these supplements I still work have a mobile oxygenater for the days when I don't breath so well. I have a ritual every morning to expectorate the phlegm and if I don't do it I cannot breath well all day. I think the viscose phlegm coats the remaining avioli and coughing and spitting it out seems to uncoat the remaining avioli
Drink plenty of water remember water contains oxygen.
I take another supplement which contains 4 types of algae good luck everyone and remember treat the illness one day at a time

Pulmonary Fibrosis Remedies
Dear Ted, My Mom has been diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis 1.5 years ago. She has been taking Pirfenex and other medicines along with natural supplements.
She is on 5Ltr oxygen concentrator 24 hour with Bipap machine and can only maintain 70% of her oxygen when she is walking... When she is quiet it goes up to 87%... She coughs a lot and she is very exhausted when she does her sputum is very sticky and stuck somewhere in throat.
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.

In the following review they describe the use of NAC for IPF at 600 mg three times per day in divided doses for a total of 1800 mg/day.
Here is a relevant quote from the review :
' The most commonly used oral dose [76.19% (16/21)] was 600 mg three times a day (1, 800 mg per day). Combined therapy frequently included corticosteroids (13 studies) and pirfenidone (two studies). '
Regarding the use of melatonin for IPF, no dosing schedule has yet been established. I can't give a dosage recommendation since I am not a doctor, but I can mention studies where melatonin was used for Parkinson's disease at 10 mg/day and 50 mg/day to good effect in the study participants. Here is a link to the 10 mg study :
Here is an important quote from the study :
' Compared with the placebo, melatonin supplementation resulted in a significant reduction in serum high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) (β -0.94 mg/L; 95% CI, -1.55, -0.32; P = 0.003) and a significant elevation in plasma total antioxidant capacity (TAC) (β 108.09 mmol/L; 95% CI, 78.21, 137.97; P < 0.001) and total glutathione (GSH) levels (β 77.08 μmol/L; 95% CI, 44.29, 109.86; P < 0.001). Additionally, consuming melatonin significantly decreased serum insulin levels (β -1.79 μIU/mL; 95% CI, -3.12, -0.46; P = 0.009), homeostasis model of assessment-insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) (β -0.47; 95% CI, -0.80, -0.13; P = 0.007), total- (β -13.16 mg/dL; 95% CI, -25.14, -1.17; P = 0.03) and LDL- (β -10.44 mg/dL; 95% CI, -20.55, -0.34; P = 0.04) compared with the placebo. '
Here is a link to the 50 mg/day study :
In the above study they found that melatonin at the dosage used, returned oxidative stress levels similarly to healthy control levels.
Here is a quote from the study :
' Taken together, our data showed that melatonin supplementation recovers mitochondrial function and diminishes oxidative stress. '
To get a better idea of exactly how much melatonin reduced oxidative stress markers in the study participants, take a look at "Figure 1". Here you can see how close melatonin got to control levels :
The importance of lowering oxidative stress markers in IPF is outlined in detail in this article :
Here is an important quote from the article :
' Oxidative stress arises as a result of an imbalance between reactive oxygen species (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species (RNS) production and antioxidant defence that leads to cellular dysfunction and tissue damage (Hosseinzadeh et al., 2018b). '
I forgot to include the last study which gives you a very good idea of why the well established mitochondrial protective effects of melatonin are important :
Here is a relevant quote from the study :
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis fibroblasts have increased mtDNA damage, mitochondrial dysfunction, impaired mitochondrial biogenesis, and increased rate of senescence. '
The following article goes into significant detail to describe the mitochondrial protective effects of melatonin :
A relevant quote :
' Thus, melatonin is not only taken up by mitochondria but these organelles, in addition to many other functions, also probably produce melatonin as well. Melatonin's high concentrations and multiple actions as an antioxidant provide potent antioxidant protection to these organelles which are exposed to abundant free radicals.
Serrapeptase and NAC
I only went to the pulmonary doctor once, so I've never been on any conventional meds, and I've managed to avoid any more MRI's and CT scans, since the initial ones. I do take a B/P med, and I am prescribed two inhalers, which I keep in case I feel short of breath at all, but I rarely need them.
My last visit to the doctor she said my lungs sounded clear, and that oxygen thing they put on your finger said 98%. Don't know how accurate that is though.
I went through something about a month ago, a lot of coughing, had to get some mucolyxir to get that thick and sticky mucus out, but I'm back to "normal" now.
I read here on Earth Clinic several years ago, that asthma can be triggered somehow by acid reflux, and I do suspect that has a lot to do with some of my issues, so I try to eat several hours prior to bed.
But my go-to supplements for the fibrosis are serrapeptase, and I have added nattokinase, but in the past that has caused nose-bleeds for me, so I am careful with that, and Rejuvenzyme, which seems to have just about all of the ingredients in one of the items in the package that was out of my budget. Ideally, I'd take the serrapetase and revenzyme three times a day, but that has never happened, just because I don't think about it. And then I do take the NAC with vitamin C also. But I prefer mucolyxir to NAC for mucus.
I'd like to know what caused the fibrosis, but I'm just not curious enough to go for a biopsy and have three holes in my lung from chest tubes. Curiosity killed the cat, so they say :) Perhaps if I get to the point where I can't breath I'll change my tune.
I would like to update my progress. Since my post on 8/10/16, I have had two more pulmonary function tests that have again improved. No additional fibrous tissue on CT. A gentleman named Garry from Australia has tried laser therapy and his pulmonologist was also shocked to see his pulmonary function tests improve. Please consider this therapy if you suffer from IPF and let me know how you respond. I will be happy to help you find a doctor with an appropriate laser.

Hi.This is my story and its for all of you to read. I was on holiday in Morroca xmass 2014 and some people in the hotel had severe colds. Well within hours I started to feel unwell and after a few days was contemplating air ambulance home. However managed the plane journey ok and when I got back home went straight to the doctor he's a wonderful man. he sounded my chest and thought there was crackling sounds and considered congestive heart disease. Had an xray and he sent me to a cardiologist, who thought my heart was fine right place and not enlarged. He refered me to a lung specialist and suggested a ct scan prior to seeing the lung specialist. He said he was concerned about the crackling and the white colour on the bottom of the lungs.
Had the scan on the 12th Jan 2013 and saw the specialist on the 19th Jan to discuss the results. I saw the pulmonary nurse prior to seeing him and I was registering 44 breaths per minute. I entered the consultant's room and was told he had Bad News and that I was terminaly ill and should go home and put my affairs in order. I lost hearing and left in a daze. The delivery was brutal. I was 66, lived on my own and had never developed friends in my area, I cried all night, not for myself but as to how I was to tell my family.
I am alcoholic and was sober 18 yrs at this point and then I got very angry and shouted out at 5 am that I did not sober up to die of a silly lung disease ( I used another kind of language ) when I calmed down I googled the name of the disease and Naturopathic possible cures. I was directed to a website and thanks to their clinic the sent me the medication from the USA it was six different capsules and had to be taken 3 times a day.The Social/Health system kicked in straight away Hospice care took over all the paperwork for extra income which helps the terminally ill. I had just opened a new 1 man business 3 month prior to diagnosis. I used 1 day at a time to cope with the illness after 2 months I was able to return to work that was march 2014.
Today is 1st October 2016. When I next saw the consultant bless him I asked if he thought I was better but he concurred with 7 other specialists and they said severe honeycombing meant I would not live 12 months. I defy the odds and a day at a time is good for me. I know there is no cure but you can stabilise it and slow it down last function test he said no further deterioration.They don't recognise Naturopathic cures because they are not empirically tested haha. I cannot make any criticism publicly and don't wish to. All I say is take responsibility for your own health and go for quality of life rather time.
One last thing, after he said no further deterioration smart alec her stopped the treatment and became very ill with 4 weeks all the ridges on my nails had dissapeared but they were back without the Naturopathic medication. be guide by your heart and do not refuse medication offered. I tried all of them and they made me feel so ill I could not get out of bed.
About Gout, try honey mixed with apple cider vinegar. I take it with sparkling water this combination is called Malic Acid and it neutralises the uric acid and allows the kidneys to accept it and deliver it to the bladder it disolves the uric acid crystals.

Over the years I hav settled on programme which has had a positive effect on 92% of those who stay within it's guidelines.
I also assume the worse ie it is a slow growing cancer - adjusting the capabilty of the body to take in at least 75% of oxygen and nitrogen and expelling 90% of carbon dioxide. Research indicates that cancer cells do not flourish in a body with adequate oxygen and discharge of carbon dioxide along with other negative substances, including their rubbish!
Look up Yoga Breathing exercises for Asthmatics. Within 1 week the breathing pattern improves. It is important that the diaphragm is used to completely empty the lungs and the inhalation is deep enough to take the air to the bottom of the lungs. Pattern. 3 inhalations - 3 times a day. Start first thing in the morning. Standing up if you can.
Visit your medical adviser. Too often interaction between medication drugs makes the condition worse. Ask for a review. If you are refused change your GP. Ask for an allergy test. Worse ones - statins, blood pressure conrollers and blood thinners. Recently Thyroxin has also come under the radar.
Did you know that during the last 10 years there has been much information released outside the UK showing that the stopping of or reducing of these 3 has not resulted in more deaths AND the patients on them, if they follow the mandras below, have a much better. Natural replacements, Hawthorn for BP. Chronic sufferers Hawthorn with Broom. DO NOT STOP your prescribed medication without consulting a fully qualified Natural Health practitioner
Three main points have to be followed for 6 months - without a break. No Smoking ( including the inhaling of perfumed steam - by any means} No alcohol. This means also cutting down the intake of substances that turn into alcohol. Mainly sugars. Any type that is not under the control of a plant and goes onto to a process system.
Turn to enzyme therapy . Suggestions Serraptase 3 times a day for 6 weeks and 0.1% Food Safe Hyaluronic Acid breathed through an inhaler for 30 seconds - 1 hour after a meal (any will do) for 14 days. If coughing occurs have a small flask of mullain flowers and 1 stick of licqorice made up. Gargle a mothful - then swallow. REMEMBER - the feeling that you can't breath is certainly a sign of too much carbon dioxide in your body. DON'T panic. Carry out the breathing exercises

Hi Ben, for IPF, early stages, what brand of serapeptase and what dosage would you use? Same for the Gallium Nitrate? and, in your opinion, do these products reverse the illness or just make it easier to live with as I have not heard of anybody getting cured of the pulmonary fibrosis disease. Thanks for your great info on the disease.
