Lung Fibrosis Treatment


Lung fibrosis, also known as pulmonary fibrosis, is a progressive lung disease characterized by the formation of scar tissue (fibrosis) in the lungs. This scar tissue gradually replaces healthy lung tissue, making it difficult for the lungs to function properly. Lung fibrosis can have various causes, including environmental factors, occupational exposure to certain substances, certain medications, autoimmune diseases, and sometimes the exact cause is unknown (idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis).

Ayurveda is a traditional system of medicine originating in India that utilizes natural therapies and herbal remedies to promote health and treat various ailments. Ayurveda offers supportive measures that may help improve overall well-being and quality of life for individuals with lung fibrosis. Ayurvedic treatments focus on balancing the doshas (the three fundamental energies believed to govern the body) and promoting a healthy lifestyle. Certain herbs and herbal formulations are believed to have properties that support respiratory health and may help in managing symptoms associated with lung fibrosis. Ayurveda helps in - 

  • Restore the balance

  • Purification and detoxification

  • Reduces burden on respiratory system 

  • Reduces inflammation

Key herbs which makes the treatement more effective


Mulethi root extract can help with upper respiratory conditions due to its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects. The root extract of glycyrrhizin helps ease problems with breathing. It also loosens and thins the mucus that clogs the airways and helps to alleviate inflammation by encouraging its removal by coughing. It improves the functioning of lungs.


We use gojala in our cow-urine therapy, basically it means cow-urine extract, the main component in our medicine. This extract is made of the urine of the indigenous breeds of cow. Gojala has its own benefits because it’s beyond the possibility of any kind of contamination. It has high quality and is abundant. When gojala mixed with ayurvedic herbs it becomes more effective to treat any disease and favourable to the consequence of the particular disease. This extract is superimly tested and that’s why it’s more trustable and beneficial as well.


  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF): The exact cause of IPF is unknown, hence the term "idiopathic." However, researchers believe that a combination of genetic predisposition and environmental factors may play a role. 

  • Occupational and Environmental Exposures: Prolonged exposure to certain occupational hazards can lead to lung fibrosis. Example- exposure to silica dust (silicosis), asbestos fibers (asbestosis), coal dust (coal worker's pneumoconiosis), bird droppings (hypersensitivity pneumonitis), and various other toxic substances.

  • Connective Tissue Diseases: Lung fibrosis can occur as a complication of autoimmune or connective tissue diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic sclerosis (scleroderma), lupus, polymyositis, and dermatomyositis. These conditions can trigger inflammation and scarring in the lungs.

  • Drug-Induced Lung Fibrosis: Certain medications can cause lung fibrosis as a side effect. Examples include some chemotherapy drugs (such as bleomycin and methotrexate), certain antibiotics (such as nitrofurantoin and sulfasalazine), and some cardiovascular medications (such as amiodarone).

  • Radiation Therapy: Radiation therapy used to treat cancers in the chest or surrounding areas can cause lung fibrosis as a long-term complication. 

  • Infections: Severe or recurrent lung infections, such as pneumonia or tuberculosis, can lead to lung fibrosis.



  • Avoid Occupational Hazards: If you work in an occupation with potential exposure to lung-damaging substances such as silica, asbestos, coal dust, or toxic chemicals, follow proper safety protocols and use appropriate protective equipment. 

  • Protect Yourself from Environmental Factors: Limit exposure to environmental pollutants, such as airborne toxins, fumes, and pollution. 

  • Quit Smoking and Avoid Secondhand Smoke: Smoking is a significant risk factor for lung fibrosis and many other lung diseases. 

  • Practice Proper Respiratory Hygiene: Take steps to prevent respiratory infections, as severe or repeated infections can lead to lung fibrosis. 

  • Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle: Adopting a healthy lifestyle can help promote overall lung health. This includes eating a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, engaging in regular exercise, managing stress levels, and getting adequate rest and sleep.


  • Shortness of breath, especially during physical activity.

  • Persistent dry cough.

  • Fatigue and weakness.

  • Gradual weight loss.

  • Chest discomfort or pain.

  • Clubbing of the fingers and toes (enlargement of the fingertips).



  • Occupational Lung Fibrosis: This type of lung fibrosis is caused by long-term exposure to certain occupational hazards, such as silica dust, asbestos fibers, coal dust, or other toxic substances. Symptoms are similar to those of IPF and may include cough, shortness of breath, and chest discomfort.

  • Connective Tissue Disease-Associated Interstitial Lung Disease (CTD-ILD): This type of lung fibrosis is associated with autoimmune or connective tissue diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic sclerosis (scleroderma), lupus, or polymyositis. Symptoms may vary depending on the underlying connective tissue disease but commonly include shortness of breath, cough, fatigue, and joint pain.

  • Drug-Induced Lung Fibrosis: Certain medications can cause lung fibrosis as a side effect. Chemotherapy drugs, certain antibiotics, and some cardiovascular medications are examples of drugs that have been associated with lung fibrosis. Symptoms may include shortness of breath, dry cough, and chest pain.

  • Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis (HP): HP is a type of lung inflammation and fibrosis caused by repeated exposure to specific environmental allergens or irritants, such as mold, bird droppings, or certain chemicals. Symptoms may include shortness of breath, cough, fever, chills, and fatigue.


  • Mild/Early Stage: In the early stages, lung fibrosis may be present but symptoms may be mild or non-specific. Lung function tests may show mild impairment, and the extent of fibrosis on imaging scans may be limited.

  • Moderate/Middle Stage: As the disease progresses, symptoms become more noticeable, and lung function tests show moderate impairment. The extent of fibrosis on imaging scans is more significant, and breathing difficulties, cough, and fatigue may be more pronounced.

  • Severe/Advanced Stage: In the advanced stage, lung fibrosis has significantly progressed, leading to severe symptoms and profound impairment of lung function. Breathing difficulties are prominent, even at rest. Oxygen therapy may be required to maintain adequate blood oxygen levels.


  • Respiratory Failure: As lung fibrosis progresses, the lungs' ability to effectively exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide becomes severely impaired, leading to respiratory failure. This can result in low blood oxygen levels and an accumulation of carbon dioxide in the body.

  • Pulmonary Hypertension: Lung fibrosis can lead to increased pressure in the blood vessels that supply the lungs (pulmonary hypertension). This places additional strain on the heart and can lead to heart failure.

  • Right Heart Failure: When pulmonary hypertension persists, it can cause the right side of the heart to work harder to pump blood to the lungs. Over time, this strain on the heart can lead to right heart failure.

  • Acute Exacerbations: Some individuals with lung fibrosis may experience acute exacerbations, which are sudden and severe worsening of symptoms. These exacerbations can result in rapid deterioration of lung function and require immediate medical attention.
