Dear Ted, I am Allavudeen, 30 years old Computer Software Engineer, living in India. 9 years ago, I had TB decease. I took medicine for 6 months and got rid of it completely. But It resulted in a cavity in left lung. Now I got a job offer in Saudi Arabia. While having the medical test, the doctor said that I am medically unfit to enter in to Saudi Arabia because of the lung calcification. I enquired many doctors to get rid of the lung calcifiation (cavity). But every one says that no medicine for that. Can you suggest me something to get rid of the lung calcification. I need to take up this job offer as quick as possible.

People with T.B. taking any medication, once cured, will get calcification of the lungs and it seems the doctor don't really care about the calcification, since the area of calcification is the area where the T.B. formerly exists. However I have had one case where calcification was reversed, but this rarely happens since most people don't really bother to treat calcification. Decalcification is actually a time consuming process but the common remedy I used to reduce some calcification may take a long time, which is primarily lemon and baking soda remedy, which is 2 tablespoon of lemon plus 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda three times a day. Sodium citrate 1/2 teaspoon twice a day can also quickly reduce some calcification, but I believe complete removal is not possible in a short period. Basically sodium citrate, or lemon and baking soda reduces the serum calcium levels so that calcification is reduced indirectly. Taking some magnesium citrate may also reduce some calcification through most of the body's tissues, except for the bones, since the body's tissues have high blood circulation which facilitates its removal. Some reduction in calcification is possible within 3 months, although that's my own experience. Vitamin C sodium ascorbate 1000 mg may also reduce some excess calcification too as it chelates excess tissue calcium.

The gentleman from India is actually talking about cavitation, not calcification. The TB bacterium can cause these cavities to remain in the lung and they later serve as evidence on an xray that the subject had TB. I don't know of a rememdy but wanted to correct the term so persons knowing a cure could address it properly.
