My husband was diagnosed with pulmonary sarc in 2000. We first tried not doing anything and then things got so bad that he was started on prednisone. He was doing much better until they tried taking him lower than 10mg a day. He stopped the meds and one month later was back to square one. At the time, the hospital was having a study on pulmonary sarc and put him on various antibiotics for a 9 month trial. He could only make it to 6 months because the side effects were so intense. But after one month on the antibiotics and cortisone - he received his first clear CT and they tapered him off of the prednisone. The antibiotics put him into remission and we then attempted to resume a normal life all the while getting a CT scan once a year. All was fine until last year again. This time though he was diagnosed with peripheral nerve sarcoidosis and seems to be the only one here with this condition. Which leaves us in a predicament. He was started on 75mg of prednisone and we are slowly trying to taper him off. Currently he is at 15mg a day. The doctors have consulted with their colleagues in Europe and have said that should the symptoms return after he stops the prednisone he will have to start Infliximab therapy. My husband is a doctor himself and deals with ophthalmic sarc patients on a regular basis - some of whom are on Infliximab - and he says that he wants to attempt a natural healing before starting Infliximab (his colleagues keep pushing for Infliximab therapy). On a natural healing note - so far, we have noticed that when he cuts out all stimulants such as caffeine (except for green tea which he has noticed acts anti-inflammatory), alcohol, artificial sugar and most sugar he feels his best. We are attempting to follow a diet which includes loads of fruits and veggies and very lean protein. I don't cook anymore with any spices using preservatives or MSG. So far he is only doing marginally better. I wanted to know if there is anyone who has done anything nutritionally that they can report has been beneficial in reducing their symptoms. Are there any supplements? He is currently taking Centrum and Vitamin B for the nerves. He also strongly believes in the healing power of the mind and positive thinking. Does anybody have any experience with meditation or natural healing? Thank you.
