Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease that causes an over abundance of mucus in different places in the body. Some of the symptoms of CF are frequent coughing and wheezing, nose polyps, and poor digestion. Those who suffer from CF usually take enzymes and some kind of liquid medicine that is inhaled through a nebulizer. A new friend of mine has a loved one who suffers from CF and so I am writing this blog for her and in hopes of helping others who have this malady.
To start with the diet of a person with CF should be followed closely to include 75% raw foods fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds but should avoid as much cooked foods, dairy, white sugar and flour as possible. Cooked foods cause mucus excretions and cause a person with CF to show their symptoms more.
Here are the most recommended supplements from Natures Sunshine for CF:
COQ10-helps to produce energy and support the heart
Germanium-supports the immune system
Liquid Chlorophyll also good for its copper content-to cleanse and support
vitamin D3-good for the immune system
selenium [In NSP vitamin E] -glandular support and liver
Food enzymes-aids in digestion because those with CF mucus interferes with the production of the pancreas.
