And I’m convinced 7% nebulized saline did the trick. (Accompanied by percussion vest vibration) And this forum is the place I learned of “The 7% Solution.“ “Don the indebted.”
I agree. I had the half wedge and it was very uncomfortable! I was beginning to have a constant pain in my hip from sleepy on my side. The full I e is so comfortable I wonder if it’s actually working.

About sleeping on wedges: Dr Huitt urged me for years to get an adjustable bed. She didn’t like wedges because, she said, you slide down as you sleep, reducing the benefits. With an adjustable bed, you also raise your knees, keeping you from sliding down. I finally bit the bullet, got rid of the wedge and, wow. So much better. The next time I saw Dr Huitt, I told her I finally listened to her advice.
migizii, please read through each of these links to see if K2MK4 is a stone unturned that may offer relief for your bronchiectasis. Notice at the end of the westonprice link the stress is on food sources mentioned not supplements. That is where your money is best spent.
I find the conclusions of the Science Direct article very compelling. I am already a taking Vitamin K2-MK4 supplement.
I take 81 mg of ASA every day and read that K2 can affect coagulation. I thought I’d ask the hematologist when I see him in December but wonder if anyone has any experience with this?
Thanks in advance.
K IS a blood thinner. When I finally stopped taking it, the phlebotomist no longer blew my veins.
poodledoc, I encourage you to incorporate foods Dr. Price found effective to join your K2 supplement. K2mk4 is a fat soluble vitamin and needs to be consumed with a fat. lasting about 6 hrs in the body because of the body's demand for it while K2MK7 lasts 24 hours.
@woot With an adjustable bed can you sleep on your side or only on your back?
You can sleep on your side or back.
@migizii. I have been told this by a nurse, also….thus, I take vitamin K a few times a week and may /may not cont8nue after this bottle is done.
Gwen Huitt told me she prefers everyone learn to sleep on their back to prevent reinfection . But for her many Mac patients who also have gERD, (me) it’s more important. So I learned to sleep on my back but I couldn’t do it for more than a couple of hours. So now I do both, sleep on my left side and my back and sometimes I just have to roll onto my right side.
