Remedy Advice Needed for Father with Pulmonary Fibrosis
I read your postings on Earth Clinic and was wondering if I could get your opinion on a few things.
I am a naturopathic physician and have been trying to help my Dad who was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis 2000. He has been on numerous supplements, has done hydrogen peroxide baths and used a glutathion nebulizer. He was doing OK for a long time - last year with the hydrogen peroxide foot baths and glutathione his breathing even seemed to get a little better. I noticed he was able to walk further with less wheezing and his energy seemed to be better.
His health took a down turn over the last 3-6 months and in response to this he started following the protocol from the website "Get Healthy Again". He has reported that he is coughing less and producing much less mucous. I told him I thought this was a really good sign and that perhaps things would continue to get better in other ways if he stays with the program.
I have been hearing more and more about niacin and some of the suggestions from Earth Clinic.
What would you do in this situation?
Do you recommend niacin?
Do you recommend apple cider vinegar aersolized? If so, How do you recommend aersolizing the apple cider vinegar - my Dad's breathing is really impaired, he is on oxygen and humid weather really bothers him.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR ANY HELP/SUGGESTIONS YOU CAN OFFER!
