Ginger, Milk thistle, rosemary, turmeric and passion flower are the herbs that help to cure Sarcoidosis. Remember, if not cured, the disease may cause damage to the organs.

Dear Sumi. Sarcoidosis is a Bacterial issue (ameba, worm) in mostly all cases. The bacteria has an incubation period of 8 weeks and must be addressed for that period of time. You must also keep the body hydrated during the course of treatment. The problem can be subclinical They can occupy the lymph system , but often attach to the intestinal tract and cause bowel syndromes, swelling of the intestine, ulceration.

I had a lung biopsy, thinking the 2 nodules were cancer. Wrong they were benign but with further testing ended up being MAC. Infectious disease Dr after about 5 weeks odered a CT with contrast. Results were a new collection of tissue (not called a nodule) in same lung. Radiologist reading CT suggested treatment was to follow up with CT in 6 months. My surgeon wants one in 3 months and infectious disease Dr will go with 3 months but was okay waiting 6 months. Have not been started on ANY treatment for MAC. I do have COPD and a 16 year survivor of breast cancer. Also had appox 12 inches of colon removed 3 years ago because of diverticulitis. My question is what should I be taking to boost my immune system to hopefully avoid the awful treatment for MAC?
