How to fight Sarcoidosis

What is Sarcoidosis?

In the following reports you are going to learn about sarcoidosis, and autoimmune diseases in general. Including many things your doctor never told you probably because he didn't know them. You’ll learn what may be happening to your body when you have sarcoidosis. What the underlying causes of it may be and what may need to be considered in attempting to deal with it. You will have a better understanding of sarcoidosis after reading these reports.

Sarcoidosis shares much in common with other autoimmune diseases. Research on any particular one usually, but not always, applies to the other autoimmune diseases. They have similar underlying causes and conditions, and consequently similar ways of dealing with them.

The main symptom that labels an autoimmune disease as sarcoidosis is a type of inflammation with granulomas. Most commonly they are found in the lungs, skin, lymph nodes, liver or spleen. Often they go away after a few years but even if they do that, they can come back later with a vengeance.

Some of the latest research has shown that it is bacteria in the granulomas that initiate and cause sarcoidosis. So this is definitely one autoimmune disease where antibiotics or supplements that kill bacteria or help the body to better kill bacteria can play a vital role.

These bacteria produce vitamin D. So people with sarcoidosis may suffer from vitamin D toxicity. Especially if they are out in the sun a lot, drink vitamin D fortified milk, or take supplements with vitamin D. This is completely different than an autoimmune disease like MS where there is usually not enough vitamin D. It may be advisable to test your vitamin D levels. If they are high drastically limit exposure to the sun and refrain from taking anything with added vitamin D. After several months elevated vitamin D levels would then start to level out.

You may experience Sarcoidosis in almost any part of your body, although it usually affects some organs more than others. It usually starts in one of two places:

  • Lungs
  • Lymph nodes, especially the lymph nodes in your chest cavity

Sarcoidosis also often affects your:

  • Skin
  • Eyes
  • Liver

Less often, sarcoidosis affects your:

  • Spleen
  • Brain
  • Nerves
  • Heart
  • Tear glands
  • Salivary glands
  • Bones and joints

Rarely, sarcoidosis affects other organs including your:

  • Thyroid gland
  • Breasts
  • Kidneys
  • Reproductive organs

Sarcoidosis almost always occurs in more than one organ at a time and Sarcoidosis has an active and a non active phase.

  • In the active phase, the granulomas form and grow. In this phase, symptoms can develop and scar tissue can form in the organs where the granulomas occur.
  • In the non active phase, the inflammation goes down and the granulomas stay the same size or shrink but, the scars may remain and cause symptoms.

The course of the disease varies greatly among people.

  • In many people, sarcoidosis is mild. The inflammation that causes the granulomas may get better on its own. The granulomas may stop growing or shrink. Symptoms may go away within a few years.
  • In some people, the inflammation remains but doesn't get worse. You may also have symptoms or flare-ups and need treatment every now and then.
  • In other people, sarcoidosis slowly gets worse over the years and can cause permanent organ damage. Although treatment can help, sarcoidosis may leave scar tissue in the lungs, skin, eyes, or other organs. The scar tissue can affect how the organs work. Treatment usually does not affect scar tissue.

Changes in sarcoidosis usually occur slowly (e.g., over months). Sarcoidosis does not usually cause sudden illness. However, some symptoms may occur suddenly. They include:

  • Disturbed heart rhythms
  • Arthritis in the ankles
  • Eye symptoms

In some serious cases in which vital organs are affected, sarcoidosis can result in death.

Sarcoidosis is not a form of cancer.

Sarcoidosis was once thought to be a rare condition but it is now known to affect tens of thousands of people throughout the United States. However, because many people who have sarcoidosis have no symptoms, it's hard to know how many people have the condition.

Sarcoidosis was identified in the late 1860s. Since then, scientists have developed better tests to diagnose it and have made advances in treating it.

What Causes Sarcoidosis?

Generally a bacterial infection that is not able to be eliminated causes the autoimmune response leading to sarcoidosis.

Normally, your immune system defends your body against things that it sees as foreign and harmful. It does this by sending special cells to the organs that are being affected by these things. These cells release chemicals that produce inflammation around the foreign substance or substances to isolate and destroy them.

In sarcoidosis, this inflammation remains and leads to the development of granulomas or lumps.

Symptoms of Autoimmune Diseases

Spouses and family members, even though someone may look perfectly healthy, if they have an autoimmune disease, they are truly ill. It is not in their head.

The following symptoms are common in many, if not all, autoimmune diseases.

Fatigue: It’s not a good fatigue, from working hard, but an anxious, uncomfortable fatigue related to lack of sleep. Or a disruption of the energy production mechanism in cells, either from lack of oxygen, increased toxicity, infections or a malfunction of the mitochondria.

Sleep Disturbance: About 80% may wake up three or four times a night, or in some cases you don’t wake up, but in the morning you still feel like a truck ran over you. The reason for this is that subliminal seizures kick you out of stage 4, Delta sleep, to stage 1 sleep so you can’t sleep deeply and wake up not rested.

Short Term Memory Loss: Because of the low thyroid and heart complications typical in autoimmune diseases, there is a decrease in blood flow to the left lobe of the brain causing an oxygen deficiency in the brain. This can lead to the memory loss and forgetfulness that is common in autoimmune diseases.

Emotional Liability: Someone may cry more easily, be more anxious and fearful. This is caused by the illness, and is not a psychological reaction!

Depression: As with the emotional symptoms, the hypothalamus is involved. This is not clinical depression, but literally has a physical cause that is sometimes experienced as a deep depression right in the heart.

Low Thyroid Function. About 85% have this symptom, but only about 10% of the time does it show up on a typical thyroid test. If you get tested, have both a T3 and T4 done. About 10% have excessive hair loss. For most everyone, a poorly performing thyroid will show up as subnormal temperatures.

Gastrointestinal Problems: About 75% have this symptom. Can be anything from gas, bloating, cramps, diarrhea or constipation to hiatal hernia, irritable bowel syndrome or Crohn’s Disease. Sometimes taking a simple homeopathic remedy like arsenicum album, 6x or 6c and make a difference with this.

Swollen Glands, Chemical Sensitivity, and Headaches: Allergies often develop, usually after 3 to 5 years. Eyes can be light sensitive for 6 months or longer. Dry eyes can develop. About 20% experience a very uncomfortable disequilibrium of vertigo, almost an out of body feeling that can be most disconcerting.

Pain and Fibromyalgia: Often diagnosed as a separate illness, fibromyalgia is basically a symptom that can occur with any autoimmune disease. If you have it, you’ve got pain. Often in the neck and in shoulder muscles extending down the back. Can be in the joints and muscles also.

Low Blood Sugar.

Candida Yeast Infections: These are very common. Check your tongue. If it has a white coating, you have it. Or take the spit test you will read about later. Women may get vaginal yeast infections caused by Candida overgrowth. A Candida infection on its own can cause a number of autoimmune type symptoms. Sinus infections often are caused by Candida.

Tingling hands. Ringing ears. Cold toes. Cold fingers. Metallic taste in mouth. Caused by poor circulation and who knows what.

Overdoing: You over-exercise or overwork when you feel good, and then feel worse for days afterward. This can cause serious problems. In healthy people the body shuts down when the anaerobic threshold is reached as a lot of pain is experienced. This warning does not occur if you have an autoimmune disease. Instead, the body continues to exercise and experiences no pain as the lactic acid builds up, and the body ends up recirculating carbon dioxide. This is not a healthy thing to have happen to you. It is important not to push too hard when you start recovering, or this will set you back and wipe you out.

Fluttering Heart. Panic Attacks. Rapid Heartbeat. Mitral Valve Prolapse. Usually blood pressure is low, though it can get high later on. The heart under-pumps blood because it is getting incorrect messages from the autonomous nervous system. The body’s feedback loop picks this up and over-reacts. And you get these symptoms.

If you have autoimmune illness, it is not likely you have all these symptoms. However, you will have many of them to one degree or another.

This information is for educational purposes only. I am not a doctor. This is not medical advice on how to treat autoimmune conditions, but information to help you understand them.

What Are the Signs and Symptoms of Sarcoidosis?

Many people who have sarcoidosis have no symptoms or general symptoms that seem unrelated to Sarcoidosis. Often, the condition is discovered by accident only because a person has a chest x-ray for another reason, such as a pre-employment x-ray.

Some people have very few symptoms, but others have many.

Here is a rundown of symptoms that occur with Sarcoidosis according to which organ is affected. You may have one or many of these symptoms depending on the severity of the disease.

Lung Symptoms

When Sarcoidosis affects your lungs it produces symptoms such as shortness of breath or wheezing. You may have a dry cough that doesn’t bring up phlegm, and on rare occasions a pain in the middle of your chest that gets worse when you breathe deeply or cough.

Lymph Node Symptoms

Lymph node symptoms include enlarged and sometimes tender lymph nodes—most often those in your neck and chest but sometimes those under your chin, in your armpits, or in your groin.

Skin Symptoms

Various types of bumps, ulcers, or, rarely, flat areas of discolored skin, that appear mostly near your nose, eyes, back, arms, legs, and scalp. They usually itch but aren't painful. They usually last a long time.

Painful bumps that usually appear on your ankles and shins and can be warm, tender, red or purple-to-red in color, and slightly raised. This is called erythema nodosum. You may have fever and swollen ankles and joint pain along with the bumps. The bumps often are an early sign of sarcoidosis, but they occur in other diseases too. The bumps usually go away in weeks to months, even without treatment.

Disfiguring skin sores that may affect your nose, nasal passages, cheeks, ears, eyelids, and fingers. This is called lupus pernio. The sores tend to be ongoing and can return after treatment is over.

Eye Symptoms

Eye symptoms include burning, itching, and tearing pain. Your eyes may appear red and dry and may be sensitive to light. Anything affecting your vision may also be a symptom of sarcoidosis.

Heart Symptoms

Shortness of breath, wheezing and coughing can indicate symptoms of sarcoidosis. Irregularities with your heart such as palpitations, skipped beats, or an irregular heartbeat are also sarcoidosis symptoms.

Sarcoidosis has symptoms in almost every organ in your body. Look for pain and swelling in your Joints and Muscles. Painless holes in your bones or painless swelling, mostly in your fingers are Bone Symptoms. Liver Symptoms include pain in the upper part of the abdomen, under the right ribs, along with fever, fatigue, and itching.

Nervous System symptoms are headaches, vision problems, or weakness or numbness in an arm or leg. These also are Pituitary Gland symptoms. Paying attention to your body and noticing any irregularities is the first line of defense against Sarcoidosis.

We suggest using the following list of supplements to help with Sarcoidosis.

 

2 bottles per month m⋅e⋅t⋅OH for 3 months then 1 per month for 6 months. Use in a Nebulizer if your sarcoidosis is in the lungs.

pHenOH is a frequency enhanced OH water concentrate that works to unlock your body's natural ability to thrive by removing acid faster than has ever been possible. Using technology to infuse specific energetic frequencies at the cellular level, m⋅e⋅t⋅OH has been optimized to better deal with pathogens and unwanted, compromised cells, and to provide optimal detoxification. The energetic instructions increase the original effectiveness of m⋅e⋅t⋅OH by approximately 35%.

Science tells us that disease cannot thrive in an alkaline or toxin-free environment. In these times of unprecedented acid buildup due to fast-paced, stressful lifestyles, toxins in the air and food, and the abundance of acid-producing products such as coffee, tea, soda and sugars, human oxygen levels are at an all-time low, causing vast numbers of disease and ill-health.

Unlike alkaline water from machines, or any other alkaline water, m⋅e⋅t⋅OH actually seeks out and removes hydrogen containing acids from the body. Removing these acids is the key to health. The water in m⋅e⋅t⋅OH has had one hydrogen atom removed using a double-patented process, thereby turning H2O into OH water.

The key to health is having a well oxygenated body. pH stands for "percentage of Hydrogen". The more acidic your body is, the more toxins it has, the more hydrogen is tied up in these acids. This excess acidity and toxicity causes a lack of oxygen.

The best way to remove these acids and toxins from the human body is to drink diluted amounts of m⋅e⋅t⋅OH in water. This OH water wants hydrogen. So it seeks out and binds with acids (including toxins) because they have the hydrogen that m⋅e⋅t⋅OH is seeking.

When you drink diluted m⋅e⋅t⋅OH, it starts looking for hydrogen molecules, which are found in acids and toxins. Finding one, it becomes H2O again, pulling any extra acidity from the body as it binds with the acids. The body gets rid of the hydrogen molecules as it does all water, through the urine. You will literally pee the acidity out of your system.

Nothing else we have tested removes acids and toxins so effectively. When acids and toxins are removed by m⋅e⋅t⋅OH, your body will oxygenate much better m⋅e⋅t⋅OH then becomes one of the best oxygenation supplements we supply. This oxygenation will heal your cells, kill pathogens and improve the overall health in your body.

When used in a nebulizer so that it is taken into the lungs, m⋅e⋅t⋅OH will work directly on the bacteria in the lungs causing your sarcoidosis.

 

1 set per month Optimal Immune 1 and 2 combo for 6 months or longer

This is the best immune modulator we have seen. It will calm down an overresponding immune system causing the autoimmune response and build up the depleted immune system needed to deal with the bacterial infection.

IThis combo supplies 1 bottle each of Optimal Immune 1 and Optimal Immune 2. Optimal Immune 2 is an oil based formula in an 8 ounce bottle that is emulsified in a new breakthrough process to significantly increase absorption of the herbs, liquid chlorophyll and structured water mixed in it. Optimal Immune 1 is an herbal and medicinal mushroom formula, 90 caps per bottle, that is designed to work synergistically with Optimal Immune 2. Adding it in boosts the immune system response considerably and continues Optimal Immune 2's support of liver and brain function.

Increased and improved immune system enhancing occurs when the liver and brain are also supported in an immune supplement. The liver and brain work together intimately, the liver supplying nutrients to the brain and driving brain function to a greater degree than you may think. The brain controls the immune system, so improving function of the brain improves immune system response too.

Optimal Immune 2 uses

Black Cumin Seed Oil, a power immune system strengthener. It and all the other emulsified oils carry other immune enhancing components into cells as they create a liposomal delivery system.

Cordyceps and Colorius medicinal mushrooms are an equally powerful immune enhancing duo. Well known Ashwagandha and Turmeric also boost immune system response and the specially processed Structured Water used in it has a 25 year history of improving immune response.

The most valuable brain support nutrients in this Combo are Phosphatidylcholin, Phosphatidylserine and ProCoQ10. The group of Chia Seed oil, Pumpkin Seed oil, Evening Primrose oil and Lecithin supply the right ratio of Omega 6 and Omega 3 oils to the brain. Equally valuable as these oils are the liquid Chlorophyll and Structured Water as they help get more oxygen into brain cells. Ashwagandha, Green Tea extract and Turmeric help clear pathways in the brain and reduce brain inflammation.

The liver is also supported significantly in Optimal Immune 2. Liquid Chlorophyll and the Structured Water are powerful liver detoxifiers. They grab hold of toxins and carry them out to be eliminated by the kidneys.

Structured Water, Green Tea Extract, Turmeric and ProCoQ10 remove free radicals from the liver which improves the liver's ability to detoxify. And Ashwagandha, Green Tea Extract and Turmeric clear pathways in the liver as they do the brain.

Evening Primrose oil enhances hormonal function. A strong hormonal system makes for a strong immune system, so this benefit, while small in the whole context of Optimal Immune 2, is significant.

Optimal Immune 2 Ingredients:

Parent Essential Oil Base: 7,950mg
Cold Pressed/Full Spectrum: Organic Black Cumin Seed Oil, Organic Chia Seed Oil, Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil, Evening Primrose Oil.
Organic Essential Oils: Peppermint, Lemon, Lime, Rosemary and Cinnamon.
Blending Agents: Lecithin from Sunflower Oil, Liquid Chlorophyll, Purified Structured Spring Water.

Herbal Proprietary Blend: 550 mg
Medicinal Mushrooms: Organic Cordyceps Militaris, Organic Colorius Versicolor.
Antioxidants/Carotenoid/Phytochemicals: Lycopene, Lutein/Zeaxanthin, Arabinogalactan and Dihydroquercitin (from Larch wood).
Full Spectrum Herbal Extracts: Ashwagandha, Green Tea (50% EGCG), Turmeric (95% Curcuminoids)
Nutraceuticals: Phosphatidylcholine, Phosphatidylserine, ProCoQ10 (Wacker).
Stabilizers: Xylitol (from US Hardwood), Potassium Sorbate, Vitamin C.

Optimal Immune 2 alone is as powerful as Immune Force and the addition of Optimal Immune 1 in situations were the immune system can be boosted significantly enhances it's ability to deal with unwanted cells and infections.

Optimal Immune 1 is built around four medicinal mushrooms known for their immune system boosting capabilities and an optimal ratio of nine important herbal extracts.

These herbs work together to both kill nonfunctioning cells and to improve the function of the brain. This improvement enables the brain to better direct and control the immune system response against unwanted cells, pathogens and toxins and of course helps to improve overall health too, especially with the additional liver support, free radical scavenging and anti-inflammatory benefits of the herbs. In our energetic testing these herbs create a 55% increase in the ability of the mushroom extracts in Optimal Immune 1 to boost the immune system.
Ingredients per each 3 capsule serving:
Medicinal mushrooms: Organic U.S. grown Reishi, Cordyceps Sinensis, Turkey Tail and Mitake.
Herbs: Astragulus 4:1, Burdock Root 4;1, Turmeric Extract, Green Tea Extract, Mangosteen Extract, Bacopa Extract, Gymnema Extract, Mulehi Extract, Garcina Cambogia Extract, Guggul Extract, Colesus Extract, Piperine.

1 Two Pound container per month
MSM Powder for 6 months

MSM is suggested in this protocol because it will make lung tissue more pliable as it reduces inflammation in the lungs. Use 2 tablespoons a day.

High levels of MSM (Methyl-sulfonyl-methane) offer therapeutic pain relief. MSM oxygenates cells and is an excellent detoxifier, so start with small doses and work up. Can kill parasites and unwanted cells; helps the skin and lungs become softer and more flexible and is highly anti-inflammatory. MSM is available in most stores. Look for a reputable brand.
