I still believe that consuming sugar makes EVERYTHING GROW faster in general. That IS what sugar DOES.

Mar 26, 2017 · Lung nodules & scared! in Lung Health

Hello, I am sorry you are going through this right now. I am sending prayers your way. Please keep in mind that PET SCANS contain Glucose to help detect the cancerous cells BUT THAT IS SUGAR which feeds the cancer and makes it grow aggressively. PLEASE CONSIDER LIMITING THESE PET SCANS IF AT ALL! My sisters lung cancer spread VERY VERY AGGRESSIVELY in one week through her entire body, lymph nodes, liver, spine, intestines, abdomen, neck. SUGAR FEEDS CANCER!

we may. I do think I have some gerd issues, I was eating before bed a lot and recently stopped that habit! I need to stay on track and do all the right things to reduce flare ups. it is true that we are what we eat!

thank you dear. you are so sweet and helpful. fortunately, I do not take any other medicines or over the counter medicines either. I will certainly go to my doctor and ask more questions now that I am learning about all this. I really appreciate You, this forum, and all the NICE caring people here! HUGS! Marianne

dairy products cause our bodies to react by inflammation and mucus due to this food source does not belong in humans bodies. it is for young calves not humans. this is why we react this way. I heat my creamer to almost boil to kill off bad bacteria if I use it in coffee. otherwise I do not touch MILK. it is loaded with pus and bad bacterias. terrible!

Jan 15, 2017 · Excessive mucus without cough in Lung Health

Hello, my condition is diagnosed as Bronchiectasis which has no cure. the enzymes dissolve the mucus. if I stop taking them, it builds up again. This may be due to allergic reaction to dust and dander, or just bacteria in lungs. I recently stopped eating ANYTHING at all before bed to prevent GERD which also causes mucus formation in the lungs. when I feel hunger late at night, I drink two glasses of water to feel full. I sometimes stop the enzyme for a few days at a time to cut back on them. I will try stopping for a couple of weeks and see how my breathing is. I hope you find some answers. Our bodies are responding to something in our environments, this is a terrible condition and chronic. do you use HEPA air cleaners at all? this is important to remove possible mucus triggering allergens.

Hello Katherine,
I am Marianne. Thank you for reaching out. I was going to a pulmonolgist for awhile, but my good insurance policy dissolved. So it has been two years or so since my last visit. She had me on Flovent for two years with barely any improvement. That did not reduce the mucus one bit. (They never prescribed anything at all for reducing mucus. I was gasping for air 24/7) I did not notice much change other than my voice got much higher in pitch, we were merely trying that remedy. I was desperate to fix my breathing problem. My bronchiectasis most likely came from pneumonia and compounded from pet bird dander and cat litter dust. My home was filled with bird dander/dropping dust and my cat litter contained SILICA. WOW! As for the Serrapeptase (Serratia peptidase) I buy it from Prothera (protherainc dot com) 888-488-2488. you have to register and may need a password from medical staff. My general doctor gave me a password to register. Prothera sells pharmaceutical grade vitamins, and supplements. I received a newsletter from Prothera in email about medical breakthroughs and one was referring to Serratia Peptidase for lung issues. So I researched and decided to try it. What I use is called Serralase enzyme supplement. I used it to relieve severe mucus and breathing difficulties especially in Chicago HUMIDITY! That cleared up in less than a month. Enzymes are not measured in mg. So It is difficult to know the amounts I am taking. I follow the instructions on the supplement bottle. I also use four hepa air cleaners AND my whole house fan on my furnace 24 hours a day WITH IMMEDIATE IMPROVEMENTS in my breathing. I will be seeing my pulmonologist again soon for a check up. I feel that I am controlling the disease progression through AIR CLEANING mostly. Only in the summer months I have to worry about humidity. A pneumonia shot has done me well, this year I did not get pneumonia with my cold/flu. So I agree totally to consult your doctor before taking any enzymes. It certainly is worth researching. I barely take any at this time as I am maintaining very well with the clean air. I really appreciate your warm, caring, and compassionate advice. Thank you.
Sincerely,
Marianne
