What is Pulmonary Fibrosis and what causes it?

What Is Pulmonary Fibrosis?

Fibrosis, including IPF, is the result of thickened or scarred lung tissue. Pulmonary fibrosis, Wegener’s Granulomatosis, and Sarcoidosis all include fibrosis.

What Causes Pulmonary Fibrosis?

Pulmonary fibrosis may be the result of a number of factors, like:

  • Mineral deficiency, especially selenium and iodine
  • Infections
  • Chronic inflammation
  • Environmental agents, like silica, asbestos, or certain gas exposure
  • Ionizing radiation exposure, including radiation therapy to treat chest tumors
  • Chronic health conditions, i.e. rheumatoid arthritis and lupus
  • Some medications

A condition called hypersensitivity pneumonitis causes lung fibrosis to develop after a heightened immune response when organic dust or occupational chemicals are inhaled. This condition most often occurs when contaminated dust containing fungi, bacteria, or animal products is inhaled.

Sometimes, fibrosis and chronic pulmonary inflammation can develop without any known cause. Many of these patients are diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) that will not respond to medical treatment; other types of fibrosis, like non-specific interstitial pneumonitis (NSIP), may respond better to immunosuppressive therapy or immune balancing nutrients.

In either of these cases, it’s important to use the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Plan to clear up the condition completely or to manage the health issue without the use of medication.

My mother was diagnosed IPF 2 years back, her condition is getting severe gradually, she is using Perfinex (Esbriet) 3 times a day being the only medicine available.

She is 71 and also suffering from severe Osteoporosis.

Please let us know if she can use Serranol Advanced Plan and if this will reduce Pulmonary Fibrosis in her lungs?

Best Regards,

Hi, if pulmonary fibrosis has been caused by a foreign body, such as cellulose powder, can serapeptase be useful or can it be harmful in this case due to the release of the foreign body? thank you

Hello Anthony, serrapeptase safely helps to clear inflammation and unwanted dead tissue from the body, such as lung scarring. It has been used effectively where environmental damaged or pollutants have been a probable cause, without creating any secondary issues.
