Alternative medicine for Sarcoidosis: an autoimmune disease in which swelling (inflammation) occurs in the lymph nodes, lungs, liver, eyes, skin, or other tissues.
Jack was diagnosed with Lymphatic Sarcoidosis in 2004. His lymph nodes under his chin started swelling. First they removed his tonsils because they thought that his chronic bronchitis may be helped by the procedure. While he was in surgery, they also removed 2 lymph nodes from his neck to biopsy. He then went through what most with Sarcoidosis do, blood panels, lots of poking, prodding, cat scans, MRI’s, ultrasounds, respiratory testing… Lymphoma, AIDS, Arthritis, rare blood diseases & more were all ruled out and in June of 04’ Sarcoidosis was the official diagnosis.
After 3 years, 3 specialists, MRI, cat scans, endoscopy’s, biopsies & prednisone in very high doses his lymph nodes in his neck & mediastinum continued to swell.
Last visit to his ear, nose & throat Dr. left him with little hope. He was told that his lymph nodes under his chin had become fibrocystic & would only go away if removed with a very risky surgery that the plastic surgeon did not feel comfortable performing. At this time, the 3 specialists agreed (amazing, they agreed on something) the prednisone was not working and they wanted to start him on Lipitor to help with the high cholesterol (a common side effect of prednisone). He refused and we started seeking a alternative medicine for Sarcoidosis.
After weaning himself off prednisone (took about 6 months to do) we started researching alternative medicine options. Jack went to a holistic Dr., acupuncturists, did Chinese herbal remedies, massage, wellness formula, tried Xango, 5 system cleanses, acid alkaline diet, eat right for you blood type regimen, elimination diets & none seemed to work. After 1 year he was still 50 lbs over weight (as seen in May 08’ picture) & his lymph nodes were exactly the same size, he was tired, sore, aching, got vertigo a lot, low energy, colds etc. etc. In November of 08′ he started taking a liquid antioxidant that helped his symptoms for about 3 mo. As often happens the product was reformulated and stopped being effective, sending us searching, yet again.
Through more research Jack started taking FuCoyDon & Spectramaxx (1/2 oz a day of each) in May 09′. It took about 6 months and the group of lymph nodes the size of a golf ball under his chin were back to normal. His joint pain, constant body aching, low energy & vertigo went away. He was able to start riding his mountain bike, rafting the rivers & even go on walks with Dani again!
Note: In July, the manufacturer of these liquid nutritionals, SISEL, introduced a new product called Eternity, a resveratrol, quercetin & catechin formula & Jack added that to his arsenal as well. Taking a 1/2oz. daily.
