Essential Oils to Help Cystic Fibrosis

Cystic Fibrosis (CF), is a genetic disease that affects the lungs. Those who have CF are more susceptible to persistent lung infections and trouble breathing. CF causes production and accumulation of thick mucus in the body, mostly in the lungs and on the organs.

In the lungs, this thick mucus coats the airways and can easily trap any bacteria that enters the lungs, leading to frequent bronchial infections. In the pancreas, it prevents the release of digestive enzymes needed to break down food and aid the body in nutrient absorption.  

Common Symptoms of Cystic Fibrosis

Those who have CF often have a variety of symptoms, including:

  • Wheezing and shortness of breath
  • Frequent lung infections such as bronchitis and pneumonia
  • Limited weight gain despite eating well
  • Frequent gas, bulky stools, and trouble with bowels
  • Persistent cough
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Nutrient deficiencies

Though these are only some symptoms, and they can vary from individual to individual. Severity and treatment can be different for each person living with CF, and plans are tailored to meet specific needs for better health.
