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.

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.

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.

When you say you take NAC 600, is it 600 micrograms or milligrams? Is it taken once a day or two or three times a day and when - morning, afternoon or at night? Is it taken after meals and with a sip of water?

I am sorry to ask you so many questions. Please forgive me.

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, ...

Replied by Mama To Many

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.

Hello, it is my understanding that iodine deficiency is fairly common in western developed nations, especially since the bread and baked goods industry stopped using it as a dough conditioner in the 1980s replacing it with bromine, and since the dairy industry stopped using it for teat dip, again replacing it with bromine. Also the low salt craze means people are not eating enough iodized salt anymore (processed foods are not required to use iodized salt, you have to go out of your way to buy it and use it at home). Further compounding the issue is the use of chlorine to sanitize municiple water (which is cheaper but much less healthful than using ozone or ultraviolet light) and fluoride to treat tooth decay (questionable benefits, multiple harms). Long story short, these halides displace iodine, even though iodine is needed by your thyroid and every other tissue in your body. Iodine serves hundreds of necessary functions in the body and one of these is to prevent cancer and fibroids. I cannot recommend your mother take iodine if she is already on thyroid hormones: You will need the help of a qualified holistic dr which I highly recommend in all cases. If she is not on thyroid hormones you could get her to try kelp tablets which have iodine, selenium, and other trace minerals from the sea. I personally use lugols 2% iodine (amazon) as a preventative measure with selenium tablets 200mcg (super fresh).

Serrapeptase and NAC

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.

I have just started my serra and nac useage about two weeks now, how did you determine the dosage you need to take? Any info will be greatly appreciated.

Replied by Diane

Honestly, I just go by how I feel, what the labels tell me I can take, but I did it religiously for about the first 6 -12 months. I've read that some people feel better taking 40,000 units rather than the 120,000.

I did neglect to mention that I also take magnesium and vitamin d daily. Sometimes magnesium citrate, and sometimes a brand that says that it's high absorption magnesium, 100% chelated.

I never took lungs formulas or other systemic enzymes, like I read that others do when I was researching about it, and I personally would avoid taking anything with nattokinese, because it doesn't know when to stop lysing.

How homeopathically cleanse body of mold, will Serrapeptase&NAC, etc. take care of this??? Mucus he coughs-up is clear...

Hi. Sounds very encouraging. I just bought neprinol and NAC. Pray it helps my very scarred lungs due to scleroderma. Hope your still doing well. How many did you commence with? Blessings and thank you!



When I was first told I had pulmonary fibrosis, I checked Neprinol, but it was not in my budget. HOWEVER, I came across a review on Amazon about it, and the person said he or she started out with 3 a day in the comments section under their review. I just looked at it again, and you should be able to easily find that review with the title "very interesting product". All the best to you.

Replied by Diane

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.

My mother is diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis in 2014 and under taking medication as per pulmonologist advice (in India). 10 different medicines, including Pirfiner (200 mg) thrice a day

After recent visit to the clinic and disease progression, clinicians indicated maximum survival of 1 year. My mother is under 16 hours of Oxygen support at home.

I had come across Earth Clinic through google, and read positive reviews from people affected by PF, but not very clear about the dosages and combination of alternative medicines they are taking. Will it be possible to arrest the disease progression, by taking serrapeptase (enzyme) and Hydrogen peroxide. However I am not sure how to get these alternative medicine in India. Does anyone know where to buy them to ship to India? Can anyone advice the dosage for these medicines.

2. Can we take these medication along with other medication given by Pulmonologist?

That is amazing news Dianne,

When is your next MRI or CT Scan? Would love to hear whether the enzymes have made any structural differences and how your lung function is?
Do you feel the enzymes are working effectively over time and what has your doctor said about you condition since supplementation?

Also what conventional treatments are you currently on?
I'm worried the enzymes would interfere with the immunosuppressants I'm on or heart meds like blood thinners and blood pressure tabs? Would you know where I can find more guidance on this.

Good luck to you and I'm excited to hear your response.

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.

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.

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.

There was a comment from a gentleman dated 04/16/08 for the IPF. He stated that he was on some enzymes (for 2 weeks) and has seen some improvement. I would like to know what they are: my father has IPF and I am trying to figure out what to use. thank you.

To Tonja via Deirdre,

Although I have been on Neprinol for a matter of weeks I have seen some very positive improvement in my condition (IPF) and also some bonus changes unconnected to IPF.

In the matter of IPF I was having great difficultywalking any real distance 200/300 yards,especially on flat amd hilly ground and light activity in the garden (digging,weeding and moving the wheel barrow around with light loads) and 15 minutes or so would find me very breathless.Whereas, now I can work for at least 40minutes with the mower/chopping with the axe/digging with the mattoch etc and whilst I will then be quite puffef out my recovery time only takes about 7/10 minutes.

As for the "bonuses" -these can be seen in the slow dissappearence of a scar on my upper lip that has been there for many many years (I am 82 ) ,my right wrist which was fractured badly some decades ago and only had about 75% rotational movement is now as mobile as my other wrist, also I am noticing a vast improvement in my ability while driving my car,to turn and twist my neck and head to look left and right over either shoulder to check for traffic.Prior to this my flexibility in this area was quite restricted due to R/A,This brings me to another bonus ie; I no longer take anti-steroidal drugs for R/A and have no real pain in my feet and hands.

I hope my experience gives you some insight into what course of action you should take for your father,keeping in mind that all meds do not work for everyone in an identical way,but I do feel that ,as the old saying goes "If it wont help, it wont hurt".It certainly is helping me.I am looking forward to my next chest x-ray to see if there has been any significant improvement in my lung condition(about 3 months time).

U: 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".

I was dx with pulmonary aspergillosis. I had lived in 3 houses with black mold, but my cough didn't become chronic until I caught a serious respiratory illness from one of my daycare kids around 2002, that I don't think I ever fully recovered from.

Around 2007 an x-ray revealed 3 nodes in lower right lobe and it was determined to be A Niger.

It's worse am/pm and after eating or being exposed to aerosol toxins. I tried many things over the years including HP, serrapeptase... anything anyone had to offer. Nothing worked. I couldn't tolerate the oral HP, and never tried nebbing it.

I finally resorted to an expensive, complete dental revision removing/replacing all materials with more bio-compatible materials (tested for this) in 2011. Extensive, 8 hrs under conscious sedation. Numerous serious infections.

My docs believed that the fungus was adhering to fibrosis which would be eliminated with a specific protocol. The dental metals tend to adhere to fibrosis as well and complicate things, which would improve with my detox protocol.

I eliminated dairy and all processed foods that contained Calcium-anything (never 100%, btw) and began taking Bioavailable calcium, mag, and a few others basics. The only dairy I consume is occasional diluted organic whipping cream. I do eat lots of organic butter. I also started eating meat and eggs again after 25 years being vegetarian... and never felt better!

The fibrosis in my breast, which I'd had all my adult life dissolved in short order- definitely within a year. I had successfully eliminated uterine fibroids (fibrosis) about 35 years prior, which had resulted in hysterectomies in every woman in my family before me. I wasn't giving up any body parts and found an alternative solution.

The arthritis that had been developing prior to surgery went away, as did the weird AI-like symptoms I had developed. I did experience some pain in my knee for a few months and in hindsight, I believe it was the cal deposits breaking up.

Prior to all these changes I had severe degeneration of C5/6 in my neck, vertebrae almost touching. On re-check sometime after, all the bone spurs were gone, smooth edges and the disks were nice and puffy. Total regeneration. My chiro was giddy!

Another very curious thing... every time my oxygen level is checked it's always 98-100, even with atelectasis present, and they can't explain it. They say my body has found some way of compensating. My challenged RBCs are now excellent since the surgery. The current HCP, who I was seeing several times a week for a couple of months, claimed that atelectasis would come and go- there one time, gone the next. I am nebbing saline and just finished taking 2 bottles of ADP (emulsified oregano oil)- 6, three x/day. Still coughing.

My 'dental' doc did say that eliminating 'pulmonary' fibrosis would take longer. It's been 4 years. He passed last year and I've gotten a little lax without his guidance and support. I'm getting impatient.

Due to extenuating circumstances, I had to live in another house with bad mold and dust mites from Jan12-Jan15. I did the best I could and kept a window cracked year round. Of course, the cough got worse.

I should divulge that I am a long-term light/moderate smoker of organic tobacco. None of my HCPs have been concerned or consider it the cause or a contributing factor.

I'd really like to try Glutathione and possibly Oregano oil, but am afraid to experiment without guidance. If you know of a HCP who could supervise this in the Austin, Tx area, please let me know.

I don't want to go to a traditional MD. I know what they have to offer and am not interested. I also don't want to be wrongly dx'd with lung cancer, as Suzanne Somers was (she had fungus) and imprinted with fear mongering. There's a reason I'm hosting this, and I want to change that, not 'manage' this the rest of my life.

Thanks, SS
