Are there safe alternative therapies for pulmonary eosinophilia?

No. No alternative therapies have been shown to be efficacious in pulmonary eosinophilia. In fact, i'm not sure of any actual trials of any alternative medications for this condition. Pulmonary eosinophilia is a finding, not a disease (it can be found with several diseases).
None proven. There have been no controlled studies that demonstrate the effectiveness of non-pharmaceutical therapies for this, to my knowledge. Pulmonary eosinophilia is a diagnosis that indicates significant inflammation in the lungs; you need to get this treated by a physician in order to avoid long-term complications of this persistent inflammation.
