@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
