According to the American Lung Association there is no cure for pulmonary fibrosis. Pulmonary fibrosis is the gradual scarring of lung tissue that will eventually render the lungs unable to circulate oxygen around the body. Pulmonary fibrosis progresses at different rates for everyone and while it cannot be cured with conventional medicine, it is often managed with drugs.
Drugs for Pulmonary Fibrosis
The drugs commonly used to manage pulmonary fibrosis are corticosteroids such as prednisone. The idea of these drugs is to reduce inflammation in the body that triggers the buildup of scar tissue in the lungs. However prednisone and others have very harmful long term side effects. These side effects can include osteoporosis and depression according to WebMD. They also do not directly address existing scar tissues and can only slow the process, but not stop it.
There are alternatives to these drugs that directly address the scar tissue developing on the lungs. Scar tissue is made up of extra fibrin in the body that is created as an inflammatory response. Systemic enzymes work to eat away at excess fibrin, preventing further development of scar tissue as well as eating away existing scar tissue. Serrapeptase and nattokinase are two systemic enzymes that can be used by the body to naturally remove fibrin and reduce scar tissue. These systemic enzymes can be used long term to address the root cause of pulmonary fibrosis with no side effects.
The products Serra RX and Serracor-NK from Biomedic Labs RX can be used in tandem to aggressively fight fibrin and treat pulmonary fibrosis. These supplements are enterically coated so that the enzymes can pass undamaged through the acidic stomach and be absorbed by the intestines to be put to work throughout the body. In addition to these enzymes that attack the root causes of pulmonary fibrosis, there are other supplements that can manage some of the symptoms.
Phlegm and Mucus
Phlegm and mucus are often excessive in patients that suffer from pulmonary fibrosis. In addition to being uncomfortable, mucus can trap bacteria in the lungs leading to infection. This can trigger further inflammation which increases the scar tissue. Clear Lungs is a blend of herbs and vitamins that work to reduce the amount of mucus and phlegm in the lungs as well as attack harmful bacteria. Not only will Clear Lungs reduce uncomfortable coughing and congestion, but it will also slow down the buildup of scar tissue.
Vitamin D3 can also work to slow the body’s inflammatory response. This product is often used to treat autoimmune disorders and is helpful for controlling the body’s immune response system without the harmful side effects of drugs like prednisone.
Hearing the words “there is no cure”from medical professionals can feel hopeless. Pulmonary fibrosis not only effects the length of your life, but also the quality of everyday. Think outside of the box and instead of harmful drugs that can continue to reduce your quality of life, try supplements like systemic enzymes. Not only will these supplements treat the roots causes of pulmonary fibrosis and lengthen your number of days, they will also improve how you feel every day.
As always, talk to your health care provider and let them know what supplements and vitamins you are using. Working with your doctor to develop a plan for exercise and eating well will also improve the quality of your days and slow the progression of pulmonary fibrosis. Remember you have a voice in managing your treatment, don’t be afraid to use it!
