Improvement of IPF with Natural Products
A 69-year-old male presented with severe shortness of breath (rated 7/10), coughing (7/10) and low energy levels (5/10). He had a long history of smoking (40 years) and was also exposed to asbestos. In 2015, he was diagnosed with asbestosis that progressed to histoplasmosis and eventually lead to his current diagnosis of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). He was diagnosed via chest X-ray and also had spirometry testing done where they found his lung function was at 59% in August of 2015. He was placed on OFEV by his doctor to prevent further hardening of the lungs. After 15 months of being on that medication he felt no improvement, so he sought out help from Dr. Sevlie in December of 2016.

In his initial consult, the patient mentioned he could not walk one block (or walk up 14 stairs) without having to stop and rest for 3 minutes to catch his breath. He was also on oxygen 7 days a week at this point (but not every hour of the day). Dr. Sevlie preformed spirometry testing which indicated his forced expiratory volume (FVC) was at 48%. His forced expiratory flow rate between 25-75% (FEF2575) was 62%. This exam takes into account the involvement with allergens to see the relationship between allergic predictors and Small Airway Disease (SAD), this is the reason that Dr. Sevlie recommends food sensitivity testing to see how food allergens affect airway health. His resting oximetry without oxygen was 66.1% and his resting pulse was 90.9 bpm. As previously stated, he went through food sensitivity testing, which identified many abnormal food sensitivity reactions, which negatively impacted and contributed to his difficulty breathing. Nutritional testing was completed and identified nutritional deficiencies in Omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin A and Vitamin D, that weakened his overall lung and body health. Nutrient deficiencies, when present, identified, and corrected will accelerate healing and recovery time. Dr. Sevlie recommended using Wei Laboratories herbal formulas consisting of Soup A, Soup B and LC Balancer liquid at full dose, along with dietary supplements and a nutritional plan.

After 8 weeks of using Wei products, following dietary guidelines given by the practitioner consisting of: food elimination plan and vitamin therapy (vitamin D), he also exercised 30 minutes daily and made a conscious effort to hydrate his body, he noticed significant change in his quality of life. He could walk up 21 steps (33% more steps) without having to rest at the top. He also mentioned that his energy had gone from a 5 to a 7 out of 10. His shortness of breath and coughing had decreased from a 7 to a 4/10. He was also able to walk without stopping to catch his breath, even without the use of oxygen. His oxygen dependence went from using it 7 days a week to using it just 3 days a week.

He was retested at the end of January 2017 for his spirometry and oximetry results. His spirometry showed his FVC increased to 55% (from 48%) and his FEF2575 increased to 67% (from 62%). His resting oximetry without oxygen increased to an average of 95.8% (from 66.1%). His resting pulse decreased dramatically to 63.1 bpm from 90.9 bpm.

The patient had improvement with each symptom and felt like a new man from this treatment. He was able to be more mobile and use less oxygen, which ultimately changed his life. He continued products for 4 months due to the results he continued to see.
