Hello Roshan.. IPF is a serious disease... When we get hurt there is a scar formation at the injury site. which is called fibrosis... And your father's lungs are getting automatically fibrosed... means the part which functions to get oxygen is replaced by scar tissue which cannot do that... Allopathic treatment has no solution for it.. My suggestion is to start homoeopathic treatment as soon as posible...
Dear lybrate user Apart from medical treatment he also needs psychological help as stress fear anxiety etc plays an important role in most of the chronic diseases. Plus physical and mental relaxation is also required. So get him this mind therapy as well he will be benefitted for sure. Good luck.
