Hi @lorifilipek …In response to your question regarding NAC, I have had no negative responses to the supplement, only good results. Also, I have found the 7% saline solution to be very helpful. I had my GP call in a script to our local medical pharmacy (they carry the nebulizing units) as well as the saline…Sodium Chloride Inhalation Solution, USP 7% …. 4 ml twice a day). The other thing I take that I have really found helpful is an herb, Astragalus. It is an adaptogenic herb…It works on so many levels and is beneficial to the lungs in clearing congestion but the big advantage I found is that I have not gotten sick since taking it for several years now. It boosts the immune system. Good luck on your path with these bugs and Best Wishes!! Kate

@anniepie ..Hi Annie…hope you stay safe with all the wildfires. Wondering if the fires are close to you and if you are using a mask? I saw a photo of all of the little Kola Bears that are having a difficult time escaping the flames….sad also. Kate

@thumperguy …Hi Don….I just happened upon your post to ACK asking for my recipe for fermenting sauerkraut. Just a mention that if you write @alleycatkate before your post it will direct the post to the person. I also noticed your interest in T. Colin Campbell, etc. The China Study is my bible. haha. So…here is the recipe that takes the Fear out of Fermenting…I like it as it has pictures and even I cannot screw it up!

Any other Silver Bullets in your arsenal?

Hi @thumperguy …Love your thought process on the Microbiome Gut/Lung connection. I am also doing what makes good sense to me in order to take charge of my health. I've been fermenting homemade sauerkraut for an 'explosion' of probiotics for my gut (about 3 months now) and have my fingers crossed for a "natural conversion". Hope the same for you!! Kate
