In short idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is best helped if alkalization the body first such as 1/2 baking soda plus 1/4 potassium bicarbonate as a quick remedy, in 1/2 glass of water taken twice a day.

Usually a condition of fibrosis is quite often a fungus issue, and the body responds with autoimmunity, after the body is short of iodine, boron, and selenium. Certain diets lower iodine levels including thiocyanate rich foods such as cassava. However, low boron, low selenium and low iodine needs to be supplemented, as is sodium ascorbate vitamin C

To increase oxygen, usually DMSO, 1/2 teaspoon per glass of water is best as a starting dose as well as alkalization. Fibrosis condition is also a problem of high blood sugar spikes, from not drinking enough water during meals. And hence, I have seen some reversals of fibrosis, when 1500 mcg of chromium was taken, as is along with magnesium (which displaces calcium), and the magnesium supplements is without any calcium. The preferred magnesium is magnesium citrate, or at least magnesium chloride, 500 mg a day.

These are just the basic information.

One more thing: to reduce autoimmune response is the commonly known d-mannose, found in cranberries, or d-mannose taken separately since cranberries have high fructose. The reason is simple: people with pulmonary fibrosis that I am aware of has low MBL (mannose binding lectins), which prevents pathogens from binding to healthy cells leading to a fibrosis condition anyway. Of course other alternatives works too, such as 1 teaspoon of erythritol (which is absorbed much faster) or xylitol of similar amount. A nebulizer can incorporate 5% or 10% concentration of erythritol or xylitol to reduce the autoimmune response so that firbrotic conditions won't increase more. It seems to me that most polyol sugars have an effect of removing lectins, a glue that is required by bacteria and maybe viruses and fungus on healhy cells leading to an autoimmune response. Mannose, and polyol sugars prevent lectins from sticking to healthy cells.

Some people have asked my quite frequently and I also forget frequently to mention how to remove the excessive fibrosis that's already filled up. One possible way is bloodroot tincture (40% blood root in ethanol solution), sometimes called sanguinaria canadesis tincture. I haven't quite set up a proper concentration, but assuming I did, a bloodroot tincture of 3 drops per 250 cc of water is used as a nebulizer, should be sufficienty weak enough that it doesnt harm the body but is suffiicient to reverse them. In theory anyway it's done about 2 or 3 times a day. Taken internally the dose is similar at 3 drops at 2 or 3 times a day. Of course, that just my best guess. It takes about a week or two to notice improvement. When improvement begins it's often best to reduce the dose by 1/2 for example. I haven't quite work out the maintenance, that's all depends on how well people can reduce autoimmunity from mannose, erthritol and xylitol supplements. DO NOT USE xylitol gums, they contain aspartame and will degrade to formaldehyde, so it will worsen the autoimmunity condition, as does mushrooms, white bread and other high lectin foods.

Can you direct me to a naturopath in SA (southern australia) who is experienced with Hydrogen peroxide therapy. As well as Blood root therapy to remove existing fibrosis. My dad is sick & I need an expert in this field. He was taking Esbriet (pirfenidone) but discontinued after 3 weeks.
