Sarcoidosis is an idiopathic lung disease that can cause long-term damage to lung tissue from inflammation and scarring. Typically, sarcoidosis is a temporary ailment that lasts a few days, but some cases become chronic, possibly leading to more severe breathing problems.
Sarcoidosis appears to develop as an immune system overreaction to perceived threats. The inflammation in the lungs is referred to as a granuloma. Granulomas share a similar appearance to tumors, but unlike tumors, granulomas tend to recede after a few days when the perceived threat has passed.
In chronic cases of sarcoidosis, the symptoms may last for long periods of time and cause difficulty with breathing. If this happens to you, you should seek medical attention from lung care experts like those at the Lung Health Institute. We offer natural treatment options to assist with treating sarcoidosis and many other chronic lung diseases.
What are natural treatment options for sarcoidosis?
Sarcoidosis has no known cure, so the objective of most treatments is to help manage its symptoms and slow its progression. One natural treatment option is pulmonary rehabilitation. The goal of pulmonary rehabilitation is to help you breathe better by using the following techniques:
- Exercises that target lung function
- Nutritional counsel for getting the nutrients your body needs to keep its lungs operating
- Lifestyle counseling and group therapy
- Education for managing symptoms and conserving your energy
Pulmonary rehabilitation is not a replacement for medication, so if your doctor prescribes medication as part of your treatment, you still need to take it.
lung restoration treatment as a natural treatment for sarcoidosis
at the Lung Health Institute, we offer lung restoration treatment as a natural treatment for lung conditions like sarcoidosis. Lung restoration treatment is not a cure, but it should help you reduce inflammation and manage the symptoms of your sarcoidosis.
Lung restoration treatment uses your body’s own cells to help target and treat inflammation. Your practitioner will withdraw a blood sample and have your blood cells separated in our lab. The newly concentrated forms of your own cells are then reintroduced into your system.
These concentrated cells should assist with the following:
- Assistance with healing blood clots and promoting healthy cell regeneration
- Assistance with reducing inflammation
- Assistance with boosting the performance of other cells in your system
