Hello. I am wondering if anyone might know of anything to help my grandfather whom is 77 years old and suffers from Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension as well as from Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. For the IPF, we have been doing the Hydrogen Peroxide inhalation method, along with colloidal silver, several different supplements, (such as seaweed, vitamin C, collagen, etc. to name a few) along with his prescription medications that are prescribed to him by his lung doctor, and of course he is also following these treatments with a healthy organic food diet along with exercise. Seems to be working well for him as far as treating the IPF.
My reason for this post is to ask if anyone is aware of anything we could be doing to treat the PAH....As it seems to be the more threatening or problematic of the two diseases. His heart doctor has suggested he use Sildenafil, however it's been about a year now that we've been waiting on the doctors and insurance to get everything approved for him so that he can finally get this medication, and still don't have the authorization yet. PLEASE HELP!! My grandfather is a wonderful man and we need help to fight this. We are about four years post diagnosis and times ticking. I have faith that someone somewhere might know something, anything, that can help with fighting and treating this PAH.
Thank you. God bless.

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.
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)

NSIP Pulmonary Fibrosis:
Just diagnosed at mild to moderate stage, but had been taking NAC with Selenium twice a day and also herbal Clear Lungs, very helpful with breathing. I need it in the emergency dose of every 4 hours. The product does not claim to be a cure, but does claim to help breathing and it does and acts quickly as it claims. No side effects. My MD recommended Selenium via Brazil Nuts. My specialist prescribed more NAC, but also Prednisone, Azathioprine,whose side effects sound so horrific it seems I would be sicker than I am now.
The Albuterol spray was given at the testing site, to which I immediately felt ill and had a severe headache. I have severe congestion of the tonsils. Is this usual, the doc thought it was unrelated. I have to avoid wind, fans, forced hot air etc because it sets me off, also I have allergies.Particularly to dust and dairy.
I certainly intend to try your suggestions. Would love any input and advice. Blessings to all.
EC: NSIP = Non-Specific Interstitial Pneumonia
NAC = N-Acetyl-Cysteine
I have pulmonary fibrosis and have been treated (without result) by the standard medical method and I am now trying systemic enzymes (dispensed by capsule containing various enzymes combined in a very specific amounts for each of the dozen or so enzymes). This treatment has only been going for 2 weeks and although there are some positive signs it is still too early to make a definitive assessment. For instance, my voice has almost returned to normal and I can now sing once more.

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...

"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.
Quercetin dihydrate powder to protect and tone the lungs and sinuses. I have taken up to a level measuring teaspoon which is about 2 grams per day. Now I just take a quarter level teaspoon per day, which is about 250 mg.
Quercetin gives good energy. Taking quercetin restored my lungs and sinuses from just average, to good condition in 2016.
Then in 2021, only 1.87% ivermectin horse paste, apple flavored, restored my lungs from the Covid situation. I had to intentionally cough up lung mucous for about 12 days in addition to taking the ivermectin, to finally get my lungs clear.
I tried stopping taking quercetin twice in 2016, but I had so much less energy and less healthy sinuses, that I had to make quercetin a permanent supplement of mine.
For thinning and liquefying lung and sinus mucous, I take 1/2 slightly rounded measuring teaspoon per day of the 14 herb seasoning, Dash Table Blend from Walmart in the spice aisle in the 6.75 oz bottle.
Subtly increasing lung volume and blood oxygen can happen by eating high-RNA supplements like nutritional yeast (1/8 level cup before lunch) or supplements like marine phytoplankton (1/2 slightly rounded measuring teaspoon or more per day). I prefer taking the yeast before lunch because I assume it takes extra oxygen for the body to process lunch.
To me, the lungs can be as difficult to maintain as the digestive tract is to have functioning properly.
Serrapeptase for IPF:
Tried the serrapeptase at the 240,000 units twice a day....after ten days developed horrid vomiting. Thinking of trying it at 40,000 units twice a day for about ten days..if tolerated, then keep upping the dose. THOUGHTS?
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.

First item to address is greatly improving the quality of indoor air. Replace fiberglass filters w/ HEPA or HEPA Type(generic HEPA), and purchase a Negative Ion Air Purifier.
Zinc & Vit-A is critical in protecting & healing lungs. The mineral Silica is also critical in lung healing. My stomach nor Colon couldn't tolerate silica tablets taken orally so I have added Diatomaceous Earth powder to my mineral footbath w/ noticeable improvements in my PF. The flavonoid Quercetin Dehydrate capsules taken orally will help w/ the inflammation. An herbal product named "PainRx" is a potent anti-inflammatory. Fish or Krill Oil softgels is both anti-inflammatory and promote healing throughout the body.
A good broad spectrum otc natural supplement for lung disorders is Solaray's "Lung Caps".
