Reduced Dependence on Oxygen and Inhalers While Also Eliminating Kidney Disease Risk
Brooke Heather, ND, Sandpoint, ID, December 2018
As of September 2018, an 81-year-old female patient had been dealing with Bronchiectasis for several years as well as 20+ years of acid reflux and IBS. The patient was diagnosed with Bronchiectasis in 2014 and put on 2 Liters of oxygen. Through her medical evaluations, tests showed that she also was in stage 3 kidney disease. Her most debilitating symptoms included shortness of breath, coughing, and lots of mucus production. She reached out to the Wei Institute and consulted with Naturopath Dr. Brooke Heather for a natural solution. In May, Dr. Heather suggested the patient begin herbal lung formula A to help repair lung damage and restore lung structure and function, herbal lung formula B to help dissolve scarring and fibrotic tissue in the lungs, and herbal formula C to help clear up mucus and inflammation in the bronchial tubes. Together, these three products increased her mucus and post nasal drip, so she was recommended to temporarily switch to three other herbal lung formulas: one to remove any inflammation and pro-inflammatory cytokines, the second to boost lung immunity and fight lung infections, and the third to help with her post-nasal drip and excessive phlegm. After one month, the patient was already feeling much more energetic, noticed that she was not sitting around as much, and was able to get up right away in the morning to do her daily activities, which she had not been able to do previously.* The patient continued with the protocol for another month and became less dependent on her oxygen, even at times going most of the day without it.* In September, Dr. Heather recommended that the patient added in a kidney formula for a month to help with any inflammation and infection in the kidneys. The patient continued taking herbal lung formula A and herbal formula C, and in October she has reduced her inhaler usage from 4 times per day to 1 time per day.* In a very short time following Brooke’s protocol, the kidneys went from low risk to the most recent test results showing no risk of kidney disease.* She feels encouraged that even in her 80’s she has healed to this degree. She is more active without needing to stop and rest and no longer needs oxygen at night.*

Natural Products for IPF
Brooke Heather, ND, Sandpoint ID, Feb 2018
A 72-year-old male presented with a chronic cough and severe shortness of breath. Upon imaging with his pulmonologist, he was diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). He has been taking his inhalers and has a portable oxygen tank (Level 5) to bring with him when he is out running errands or doing tasks that are more strenuous.
He noticed the shortness of breath while getting the mail one day. His mailbox is about 1,500 feet from his house. Before his diagnosis he was able to go there and back, with no issues. As his condition progressed he noticed he needed to stop and rest halfway to the mail box and halfway back. Once he would reach his house, he would have to sit down for a few minutes to catch his breath.
On October 20th, 2017, the patient went to see Dr. Heather, who recommended Wei Institute Natural Herbal Treatment for IPF. After a full month, the patient noticed that he was able to walk to his mailbox and halfway back with no problem. He also mentioned that his oxygen consumption has decreased by 50% with the level all the way down to 2 (from 5).*
The patient feels that his quality of life has improved and has been continuing the herbal treatments for 3 months to see sustained results.*
