Successful Treatment of Sarcoidosis and Asthma as a Secondary Symptom
A female patient, age 50, came for treatment in 2007. She had been diagnosed with a history of asthma at the age of 48. The pulmonologist had found out about Sarcoidosis (lack of lung contraction with white spots through the entire lung) as the underlying symptom based on blood work and x-rays. She had been unable to deal with extreme weather conditions for several years (could not be outside for more than 5 minutes being exposed to extreme heat or humidity). The pulmonologist had prescribed a regiment of 25mg of Prednisone per day for a total of one year. The symptoms had changed very little in the following year. Therefore, the patient came for treatment to Dr. Badalamenti.
A combined treatment program composed of herbal intake remedies for 2-3 months, also supplements, nutrients as well as chiropractic work was applied. After two months of herbal treatment, major symptoms had been eliminated. Though still using the inhaler, the patient could now walk outside in 5 degree weather without asthmatic attacks. After 1.5 years of continued treatment the patient had been taken off the Prednisone completely (very difficult process which was supervised by the pulmonologist). Dr. Badalamenti continued to do chiropractic adjustments to the lower cervical and thoracic spine. The patient was also kept on supplements and nutrients.
The overall results of the treatment have been amazing. X-rays taken by the pulmonologist every six months testified a substantial decrease of the white spots in the lungs. The patient is using the inhaler for preventative reasons now. She can do all kinds of physical activities (e.g. cardiovascular exercise). She walks her dogs under any weather conditions. She has been in good shape for three years now and needs to see the pulmonologist once a year only.
