← Return to Glutathione: What dosage do you use? Where do you get it?

@kathleenlp I nebulize with 7% saline and glutathione. If you don't do anything else I would wholeheartedly suggest the 7% saline solution. I swear I think it keeps the lungs clean, thins the mucus and holds back the mycobacterium. There are two types of glutathione you can use (to my knowledge). One is the more expensive that comes in a little vial that you take out with a needle and measure about 1 ml and I add it to my saline solution of 4ml. I get that from my functional medicine doctor. My pulmonologist kind of rolled his eyes at me when I asked him for it. The other less expensive method is to buy the bottle of capsules by Theranaturals, called L-Glutathione Plus. You take a capsule, open it with your hands (of course not touching the powder) and put it in the your cup of saline solution. It bubbles up a little and then stops. It's much less expensive for sure. So I alternate doing each one since the liquid one is more expensive. Daniel Pecaut in his book "Beating Bronchiectasis" (which is a small paperback book that you can buy on Amazon) was how I learned about the capsules. Does it all work? Who knows for sure. I will tell you, though, for four years now (knock on wood) with two CAT scans I have had no progression and no antibiotics. Not as lucky as Daniel Pecaut but I'll take it. I will also add that I exercise six days a week. (two or three days at the gym with aerobic classes and weights and the other days a 2 mile power walk outside)...all for the cardio to the keep the lungs working. Hope that helps. Nan

Hi Nanette! This is so helpful!!! Yes, I read that book but I did not see the capsules....maybe in the back. I have 2 pulmonary docs, one near me and one in the big medical center in town and they both are resisting giving me a script for the glutathione. I have the sodium chloride ordered but they seem to be having trouble finding it. Please tell me how you chose your functional medicine doc and are there others on that team (like Daniel use...herbalist, naturopathic) I have been diagnosed since 2017 and have not progressed without any treatment of the MAC. Treated the Aspergillus(still showed on next bronch) and the bronchiectasis with Brovana(nebulizer) and Arnuity once a day(steroid) I was even improving until this last illness. Then my Ctscan looked a little worse but I was very sick. The MAC morphed into the abscessus, which is much worse and only treatment is daily hospital infusion and another nebulized medication....since I am asymptomatic they are not treating me....lots of Ctscans which I feel will kill me in the end! every 4-6 months. My lifestyle was very similar (my whole adult life) that Daniel recommended in regards to exercise (runner) and very healthy eating. Maybe that is why i have done well. My saturation is always 98-100, low BP, low pulse, good blood count numbers etc. Please let me know if you tried any of the other things Daniel suggested or if you have any suggestions. Thank you so much!!

Hello....I am new to this forum and new to bronchiectasis. I had just learned how to pronounce bronchoscopy and then they threw the other "b" word at me.

I have already ordered the L-Glutathione Plus. I read a lot about it, and it can't hurt!!! How often do you nebulize with it.....once a day, twice a day??????
