What Is Sarcoidosis? And How to Fight it

In the following reports you are going to learn about sarcoidosis, and autoimmune diseases in general. Including many things your doctor never told you probably because he didn't know them. You’ll learn what may be happening to your body when you have sarcoidosis. What the underlying causes of it may be and what may need to be considered in attempting to deal with it. You will have a better understanding of sarcoidosis after reading these reports.

Sarcoidosis shares much in common with other autoimmune diseases. Research on any particular one usually, but not always, applies to the other autoimmune diseases. They have similar underlying causes and conditions, and consequently similar ways of dealing with them.

The main symptom that labels an autoimmune disease as sarcoidosis is a type of inflammation with granulomas. Most commonly they are found in the lungs, skin, lymph nodes, liver or spleen. Often they go away after a few years but even if they do that, they can come back later with a vengeance.

Some of the latest research has shown that it is bacteria in the granulomas that initiate and cause sarcoidosis. So this is definitely one autoimmune disease where antibiotics or supplements that kill bacteria or help the body to better kill bacteria can play a vital role.

These bacteria produce vitamin D. So people with sarcoidosis may suffer from vitamin D toxicity. Especially if they are out in the sun a lot, drink vitamin D fortified milk, or take supplements with vitamin D. This is completely different than an autoimmune disease like MS where there is usually not enough vitamin D. It may be advisable to test your vitamin D levels. If they are high drastically limit exposure to the sun and refrain from taking anything with added vitamin D. After several months elevated vitamin D levels would then start to level out.

You may experience Sarcoidosis in almost any part of your body, although it usually affects some organs more than others. It usually starts in one of two places:

  • Lungs
  • Lymph nodes, especially the lymph nodes in your chest cavity

Sarcoidosis also often affects your:

  • Skin
  • Eyes
  • Liver

Less often, sarcoidosis affects your:

  • Spleen
  • Brain
  • Nerves
  • Heart
  • Tear glands
  • Salivary glands
  • Bones and joints

Rarely, sarcoidosis affects other organs including your:

  • Thyroid gland
  • Breasts
  • Kidneys
  • Reproductive organs

Sarcoidosis almost always occurs in more than one organ at a time and Sarcoidosis has an active and a nonactive phase.

  • In the active phase, the granulomas form and grow. In this phase, symptoms can develop and scar tissue can form in the organs where the granulomas occur.
  • In the nonactive phase, the inflammation goes down and the granulomas stay the same size or shrink but, the scars may remain and cause symptoms.

The course of the disease varies greatly among people.

  • In many people, sarcoidosis is mild. The inflammation that causes the granulomas may get better on its own. The granulomas may stop growing or shrink. Symptoms may go away within a few years.
  • In some people, the inflammation remains but doesn't get worse. You may also have symptoms or flare-ups and need treatment every now and then.
  • In other people, sarcoidosis slowly gets worse over the years and can cause permanent organ damage. Although treatment can help, sarcoidosis may leave scar tissue in the lungs, skin, eyes, or other organs. The scar tissue can affect how the organs work. Treatment usually does not affect scar tissue.

Changes in sarcoidosis usually occur slowly (e.g., over months). Sarcoidosis does not usually cause sudden illness. However, some symptoms may occur suddenly. They include:

  • Disturbed heart rhythms
  • Arthritis in the ankles
  • Eye symptoms

In some serious cases in which vital organs are affected, sarcoidosis can result in death.

Sarcoidosis is not a form of cancer.

There is no known way to prevent sarcoidosis.

Sarcoidosis was once thought to be a rare condition but it is now known to affect tens of thousands of people throughout the United States. However, because many people who have sarcoidosis have no symptoms, it's hard to know how many people have the condition.

Sarcoidosis was identified in the late 1860s. Since then, scientists have developed better tests to diagnose it and have made advances in treating it.

What Causes Sarcoidosis?

The cause of sarcoidosis is not known and there may be more than one cause behind it.

Scientists think that sarcoidosis develops when your immune system responds to something in the environment (e.g. bacteria, viruses, dust, chemicals) or perhaps to your own body tissue (autoimmunity).

Normally, your immune system defends your body against things that it sees as foreign and harmful. It does this by sending special cells to the organs that are being affected by these things. These cells release chemicals that produce inflammation around the foreign substance or substances to isolate and destroy them.

In sarcoidosis, this inflammation remains and leads to the development of granulomas or lumps.

Scientists have not yet identified the specific substance or substances that trigger the immune system response in the first place. They also think that sarcoidosis develops only if you have inherited a certain combination of genes.

More research is needed to discover what causes sarcoidosis but we do know that you can not catch it from someone who has it. Here are some general symptoms of autoimmune diseases that are thought to be connected to Sarcoidosis.

Symptoms of Autoimmune Diseases

Spouses and family members, even though someone may look perfectly healthy, if they have an autoimmune disease, they are truly ill. It is not in their head.

The following symptoms are common in many, if not all, autoimmune diseases.

Fatigue: It’s not a good fatigue, from working hard, but an anxious, uncomfortable fatigue related to lack of sleep. Or a disruption of the energy production mechanism in cells, either from lack of oxygen, increased toxicity, infections or a malfunction of the mitochondria.

Sleep Disturbance: About 80% may wake up three or four times a night, or in some cases you don’t wake up, but in the morning you still feel like a truck ran over you. The reason for this is that subliminal seizures kick you out of stage 4, Delta sleep, to stage 1 sleep so you can’t sleep deeply and wake up not rested.

Short Term Memory Loss: Because of the low thyroid and heart complications typical in autoimmune diseases, there is a decrease in blood flow to the left lobe of the brain causing an oxygen deficiency in the brain. This can lead to the memory loss and forgetfulness that is common in autoimmune diseases.

Emotional Liability: Someone may cry more easily, be more anxious and fearful. This is caused by the illness, and is not a psychological reaction!

Depression: As with the emotional symptoms, the hypothalamus is involved. This is not clinical depression, but literally has a physical cause that is sometimes experienced as a deep depression right in the heart.

Low Thyroid Function. About 85% have this symptom, but only about 10% of the time does it show up on a typical thyroid test. If you get tested, have both a T3 and T4 done. About 10% have excessive hair loss. For most everyone, a poorly performing thyroid will show up as subnormal temperatures.

Gastrointestinal Problems: About 75% have this symptom. Can be anything from gas, bloating, cramps, diarrhea or constipation to hiatal hernia, irritable bowel syndrome or Crohn’s Disease. Sometimes taking a simple homeopathic remedy like arsenicum album, 6x or 6c and make a difference with this.

Swollen Glands, Chemical Sensitivity, and Headaches: Allergies often develop, usually after 3 to 5 years. Eyes can be light sensitive for 6 months or longer. Dry eyes can develop. About 20% experience a very uncomfortable disequilibrium of vertigo, almost an out of body feeling that can be most disconcerting.

Pain and Fibromyalgia: Often diagnosed as a separate illness, fibromyalgia is basically a symptom that can occur with any autoimmune disease. If you have it, you’ve got pain. Often in the neck and in shoulder muscles extending down the back. Can be in the joints and muscles also.

Low Blood Sugar.

Candida Yeast Infections: These are very common. Check your tongue. If it has a white coating, you have it. Or take the spit test you will read about later. Women may get vaginal yeast infections caused by Candida overgrowth. A Candida infection on its own can cause a number of autoimmune type symptoms. Sinus infections often are caused by Candida.

Tingling hands. Ringing ears. Cold toes. Cold fingers. Metallic taste in mouth. Caused by poor circulation and who knows what.

Overdoing: You over-exercise or overwork when you feel good, and then feel worse for days afterward. This can cause serious problems. In healthy people the body shuts down when the anaerobic threshold is reached as a lot of pain is experienced. This warning does not occur if you have an autoimmune disease. Instead, the body continues to exercise and experiences no pain as the lactic acid builds up, and the body ends up recirculating carbon dioxide. This is not a healthy thing to have happen to you. It is important not to push too hard when you start recovering, or this will set you back and wipe you out.

Fluttering Heart. Panic Attacks. Rapid Heartbeat. Mitral Valve Prolapse. Usually blood pressure is low, though it can get high later on. The heart under-pumps blood because it is getting incorrect messages from the autonomous nervous system. The body’s feedback loop picks this up and over-reacts. And you get these symptoms.

If you have autoimmune illness, it is not likely you have all these symptoms. However, you will have many of them to one degree or another.

This information is for educational purposes only. I am not a doctor. This is not medical advice on how to treat autoimmune conditions, but information to help you understand them.

What Are the Signs and Symptoms of Sarcoidosis?

Many people who have sarcoidosis have no symptoms or general symptoms that seem unrelated to Sarcoidosis. Often, the condition is discovered by accident only because a person has a chest x-ray for another reason, such as a pre-employment x-ray.

Some people have very few symptoms, but others have many.

Here is a rundown of symptoms that occur with Sarcoidosis according to which organ is affected. You may have one or many of these symptoms depending on the severity of the disease.

Lung Symptoms

When Sarcoidosis affects your lungs it produces symptoms such as shortness of breath or wheezing. You may have a dry cough that doesn’t bring up phlegm, and on rare occasions a pain in the middle of your chest that gets worse when you breathe deeply or cough.

Lymph Node Symptoms

Lymph node symptoms include enlarged and sometimes tender lymph nodes—most often those in your neck and chest but sometimes those under your chin, in your armpits, or in your groin.

Skin Symptoms

Various types of bumps, ulcers, or, rarely, flat areas of discolored skin, that appear mostly near your nose, eyes, back, arms, legs, and scalp. They usually itch but aren't painful. They usually last a long time.

Painful bumps that usually appear on your ankles and shins and can be warm, tender, red or purple-to-red in color, and slightly raised. This is called erythema nodosum. You may have fever and swollen ankles and joint pain along with the bumps. The bumps often are an early sign of sarcoidosis, but they occur in other diseases too. The bumps usually go away in weeks to months, even without treatment.

Disfiguring skin sores that may affect your nose, nasal passages, cheeks, ears, eyelids, and fingers. This is called lupus pernio. The sores tend to be ongoing and can return after treatment is over.

Eye Symptoms

Eye symptoms include burning, itching, and tearing pain. Your eyes may appear red and dry and may be sensitive to light. Anything affecting your vision may also be a symptom of sarcoidosis.

Heart Symptoms

Shortness of breath, wheezing and coughing can indicate symptoms of sarcoidosis. Irregularities with your heart such as palpitations, skipped beats, or an irregular heartbeat are also sarcoidosis symptoms.

Sarcoidosis has symptoms in almost every organ in your body. Look for pain and swelling in your Joints and Muscles. Painless holes in your bones or painless swelling, mostly in your fingers are Bone Symptoms. Liver Symptoms include pain in the upper part of the abdomen, under the right ribs, along with fever, fatigue, and itching.

Nervous System symptoms are headaches, vision problems, or weakness or numbness in an arm or leg. These also are Pituitary Gland symptoms. Paying attention to your body and noticing any irregularities is the first line of defense against Sarcoidosis.

These general symptoms are often caused by other conditions. If you have these general symptoms but don't have symptoms from affected organs, you probably do not have sarcoidosis.

Now after giving you information about this complicated autoimmune condition,

We suggest using the following list of supplements to help with Sarcoidosis.

This is a 1 Month Supply

2 bottles per month Ronuv for 3 months

Ronuv is a low deuterium water, reduced to 25 parts per million of deuterium, that has been frequency enhanced with numerous subtle vibrational energies to supercharge it's benefits. When used in small amounts, Ronuv stimulates the release of deuterium by the cells in your body. Cells that are not producing most of their energy aerobically will have accumulated more deuterium and release more deuterium. The deuterium interacts with water molecules and creates oxygen at the surface of the cells. Viruses and other pathogens may also be attracted to Ronuv low deuterium water, and would be damaged by the oxygen that is created by the deuterium that is also attracted to it.

Ingredients: Frequency enhanced low deuterium water 25 ppm. potentized with a proprietary blend of the following elixirs: Azovin, Corvix, Cosmic Elixir, Custom Elixir OXY, Custom Elixir pH, Custom Elixir VPM, InLightEner Elixir, Klivina Trem, Q DNA, Q ENC, Q ISC, Q RME, Quantum X, Quanzor, Rainbow Elixir, Siva Elixir, Surozyme, and Zernix.

2 bottles per month Nymsar for 3 months

Nymsar calms down the inflammatory, over-responding immune system components that activate when pathogens or anything unwanted in the body is killed. For example, in the case of candida overgrowth which always leads to food allergies, Nymsar can help to reduce the allergies by calming down the over-responding immune system causing the allergic response. And it reduces inflammation throughout the body as it calms down the immune system’s inflammatory response.

In addition, the energies in Nymsar focus the body on greatly increasing support for the liver. Better still, they also turn on and improve cellular detoxification. This will enable your body to better handle the toxins released when candida or other pathogens are killed, or when your body is exposed to high doses of toxins from external sources, such as chemotherapy. An overload of toxins, whether released by killed pathogens or unwanted cells, can overwhelm the liver’s ability to handle those toxins. As they build up, your cells’ detoxification systems become overwhelmed too. This causes a buildup of toxins in the body which make you feel just plain lousy and sick, or worse.

In addition, Nymsar has energies that deactivate or calm down candida and other pathogens so they are not as active or aggressive. This would help to reduce flare-up reactions such as rashes and itching, or any flare up of symptoms the pathogen may be causing. By calming them down, Nymsar reduces their ability to activate or fight back, enabling them to be more easily destroyed. Ingredients: Frequency enhanced water.


2 bottles per month
CSE for 6 months

CSE is a Cell Support Elixir. It is a frequency enhanced water containing vibrations of a set of instructions put into the water with a proprietary technology unit that is able to concentrate and stabilize in CSE the subtle vibrations of a set of instructions designed to provide overall cell support and to optimize the functioning of your cells.

One set of instructions micro clusters the fluid in the body so that your cells will be better able to absorb nutrients. And perhaps more important, when using CSE your cells will be better able to release toxins stored in them while at the same time supporting the health of all normal cells and friendly bacteria. Ingredient: Frequency Enhanced Purified Water


2 bottles per month
Quzu for 3 months

Quzu is a supercharged combination of three of our best Custom Elixirs -- EE, VPM and GL. The vibrational frequencies input into the water deliver instructions to your body which greatly accelerate healing and detoxification. One set of energies turns on the production of endorphins in the brain, to create an explosion of endorphins. Not only can this help you feel better, but more importantly, it enables your immune system to work much more effectively because increased endorphins will allow the brain to better direct and control your immune system response.

In addition Quzu supplies energies that increase your cellular life force by carrying instructions to your body telling cellular vibrations per minute to increase to optimal levels. According to Dr. Bryon Gentry, who wrote Miracles of the Mind, optimal vibrations per minute for health are 108,000. But to improve health, much higher vibrations may need to be used. Quzu instructs your body to increase life force vibrations up to 400,000 vpm. The optimal amount for your cells current needs is what will be created in your body. The increase in vpm will enable your immune system to work even better.

There has been research showing that the combination of increasing endorphin production combined with an increase in glutathione levels produced powerful health improvement in serious health conditions. So Quzu also contains energies to turn on the production of glutathione in your body

Glutathione is one of the most important proteins in your body. It is the most powerful cellular detoxifier - and is what the liver uses to neutralize toxins. Glutathione is the second most important anti-oxidant in the body. There are over 80 diseases associated with low glutathione levels. Pub Med has over 92,000 articles on glutathione, more than twice as much as the number of articles on vitamin C.

Glutathione is used in the mitochondria of cells to neutralize the free radicals created in the process of making energy. It also works to neutralize all types of toxins in your cells. If you run out of glutathione in your cells, cellular mitochondria can become damaged by free radicals, impairing energy production. To make matters worse, toxins will build up in the cells, further damaging them. Glutathione also strengthens the immune system, fights inflammation in cells and slows the aging process.

Your body, primarily the liver, makes the glutathione it needs. About 97% of all glutathione is used inside cells. However, it is virtually impossible to get glutathione into your cells by taking it as a supplement. This may be why this more important nutrient is not as popular as vitamins C and E. The digestive tract and the body break it down into its amino acids so it doesn't get into cells as glutathione -- unless you use a liposomal delivery system to get it into your cells. Such as our excellent Liposomal Glutathione - which is the fastest way to increase cellular glutathione levels.

The combination of supercharging product of endorphins and glutathione, especially when cellular life force is also being increased, is perhaps the most powerful way to enhance your immune system and improve overall health that we have seen. While one bottle a month may be used as maintenance, for general health improvement, up to 4 bottles a month is suggested for best results. Ingredients: Frequency enhanced purified water.

This oil is a good source of polyunsaturated fatty acids including omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
  • Our cold pressed Black Raspberry seed oil is rich in antioxidants, including both tocopherols and tocotrienols. The tocopherols are primarily the alpha and gamma type, and are superior free radical scavengers. This oil, which is also low in saturated fat, is a rich source of polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids. Research has demonstrated that black raspberry seed oil supports a healthy immune system and has anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties.
  • Cold pressed Red Raspberry seed oilis a rich source of polyunsaturated fats including omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants, including tocopherols and tocotrienols. Tocopherols are primarily gamma and alpha-tocopherol which contribute to the oil’s superior free radical ion scavenging capability and lipid protection. It is very low in saturated fat. Having a bright gold to reddish color, red raspberry seed oil is valuable for medicinal and skin applications. Red raspberry seed oil has very potent activity in inhibiting Cox-2 enzymes and can be used both topically and taken internally for inhibition of inflammation.
  • Chia seed is an ancient food source known for providing sustained energy over a prolonged period of time. It has been recognized as a super-food for thousands of years, AND is best absorbed by the body in oil form. Cold Pressed Chia seed oil has one of the highest (quality) omega-3 contents of any plant, which is converted into DHA (as needed) in the body and is essential in brain and nervous system functions. Plant based oils high in omega-3s have strong cancer fighting potential and have been shown to make cancer treatments more effective.
  • Evening Primrose oil, coined the “King’s cure-all” in the 1700’s, has remarkable anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties and is especially crucial to women’s reproductive health. (Used as per Peskin recommendations.)
  • Cold pressed Black cumin seed oil. Hundreds of medical studies have been published in the Middle East, Asia and Europe focusing on its immune strengthening, anti-histamine, anti-tumor, anti-microbial, and anti-inflammatory activity. This cold pressed oil is exceptionally high in antioxidants and contains thymoquinone, nigellone and beta-sitosterol, a plant sterol known to lower serum cholesterol. The oil is more than 80% unsaturated fatty acids, mostly the vital essential fatty acids.
  • Cold pressed Pumpkin seed oil is a highly nutritious food. Its color is dark green with a tinge of red. The health benefits of pumpkin seed oil have been recognized in Europe for hundreds of years. In 1773 an Austrian court ruled that it could only be used as a medicine and was too valuable to be used as a culinary delicacy. It contains omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids, vitamin E, carotenoids, and phytosterols. May prevent and alleviate prostate enlargement and bladder irritation. Researchers believe that the phytosterols help reduce hormonally induced damage to prostate cells. It is believed to contribute to cardiovascular health, smooth skin and increase energy.
  • Cold pressed Hemp seed oil also provides an ample supply of carotene, phytosterols, and phospholipids, in addition to a large number of minerals including: calcium, sulfur, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium. It is also a good source of chlorophyll. Using Hemp seed oil alone can also improve energy levels, blood pressure, regularity, cholesterol levels, hair, finger nails, and help ease joint and arthritic pains.
  • Cold pressed Pomegranate seed oil is a unique plant oil as it is one of only a few plant sources for conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). CLA inhibits the synthesis of prostaglandins making it an effective anti-inflammatory agent. Research has shown that the CLA in pomegranate possesses more potent anti-cancer activity than other versions. Pomegranate seed oil is a rich source of bioactive estrogenic compounds that help to stabilize bone integrity.
  • Cold pressed Cranberry seed oil is a rich source of antioxidants and proanthocyanidins with anti-bacterial adhesion properties that promote urinary tract health.
