Sun, Jan 27 4:01pm · (MAC/MAI) MYCOBACTERIUM AVIUM COMPLEX PULMONARY DISEASE/BRONCHIECTASIS in MAC & Bronchiectasis

@sounder27 i would like to share my experience with you. Just like you my specialist for infection didn’t want to give me any of the big 3 cocktail because of the severe side effects. In order to prevent being sicker I used alternatives medicine. I discover what is call Clear Lungs to keep my lungs clean of infections. I started taking Probiotic to clear the infection and used ClearLungs extra strenght. I use RIDGECREST the blue cover. Make sure this is written on it. RELIEVE CONGESTION, SUPPORT FREE BREATHING, KEEP AIRWAYS OPEN, BALANCE MUCUS LEVELS. there is a verison with a red cover it doesn’t have the RELIEVE CONGESTION in it. You can call Ridgecrest for any concern or questions 1-800-242-4649. They are located in UT (usa) . You have a directions on the bottle and I use that if I feel I am really congested. I take some for prevention when I start a cold or have a dry cough or wheeze a bit or have a bit of mucus. I am very alert to my body so I use it when I feel I should. If I eat mucus forming food like ice cream or dairy product or pizza etc. I might take some if I hear a wheezing ( sorry I am french lol).
To me clearlungs is a savior. II am feeling very good! I have Bronchiectasis and had MAC. I am very stable but I also watch to have a balance diet. If you have stomach or a lot of mucus, I recommend you buy this book “Super Woman RX” by Tasneem Bhatia,MD. Follow her menu after you will identified the Powe type you are. Very interesting and it made a difference in my life. BUT THIS IS ME! I was diagnosed in 2010 with bronchiectasis after a severe pneumonia. MAC was discover few years later after a bronchoscopy. There is more alternative medicine outhere if you search for a solution. Good luck and keep searching for a solution. Do not hesitate if you have more questions. The Divine energy is always there to help! I will keep you in my prayor for your solution. Have a nice day Nicole

@spencersok, if she can take the big 3 find natural medicine to help her cough. For example Clear Lung with Ridgecrest is good to clear lung congestion, probiotics are also helpful for infections, etc. Consult a naturopath they can help her probably more than the big 3 in her case. She needs to stay away from mucus forming food like dairy, fried food, sugar etc. Check the internet they will tell you which food forms mucus. Many people can’t take medication. There body reject it because it is not for them. I have bronchiectasis and had the MAC and never taken medication but I do use natural medicine. She has nothing to loose trying. Even a nature food store could probably hernher a bit. Medical doctor can’t help when your body react to medication (pharmacy). I will keep her in my prayers and as the highest to guide you to a solution. Have a lovely week!

Dear Pamela,
I am glad to hear from you. ! At the beginning I took as prescribe for a full month then 2 to 3 times a week for another month then I went with 1 to two twice a week for another month. After I was taking some when I felt a little change with my respiration or when I had more mucus. I still do the same but I do not take it every day anymore. If you can take only the powder without the pills that I have no idea. I suggest you call the number I gave you for a proper answer.
Love Nicole

@pinktower my doctor said we human are a good incubator lol.  You may want to take a good good probiotic to give your body good bacteria to fight the bad one.  I take Dr Ohirra’s professional probiotic that I order directly from him on the internet.. Take care!

@marilyns Welcome to our group Marilynn.  You are at the right place to discuss MAC. Many of us are using the big 3 and some of us are using a more natural approach with herbs. It all depends of your lungs conditions and your health conditions.  We have different

opinions from doctors but at the end it all come to the same conclusion.  There is nothing to panic about Mac and bronchiectasis. First thing my ID(microorganism specialist) said to me on my first visit to him.  He said there is many more people who has a

MAC who have never been diagnose because the MAC is not active.  The main important things is to keep your lungs clear from infections.  Some of us use regular antibiotic like cypro, or the big 3 or natural antibiotics.  We all try to find the best approach

to stay healthy!  Have a wonderful week and please do not hesitate to ask all your questions? Love Nick52

@mary1944 no appetite it could very well be a liver congestion.  Your liver can also have problem digesting the antibiotic med. it is very hard on the liver. No test exist to detect a congested liver. Try Milk Thistle to help your liver for at least 30 days.

 The best is Hübner Milk Thistle in liquid. You can use Clear Lungs from Ridgecrest for decongestion of the lungs. For weakness you may want to try Whey Protein ISOLATE it has to be an ISOLATE whey protein. Vials of Ginko biloba is good for energy and has

Windwalker sayGiseng if your health permit!  I will keep you in my prayer for you to find the best solutions.  Practice meditations to relax! Nick
